Guild Leaders/founders: Ronan Dexx-Dark Lord of the Sith, Rage Kain-Dark Lord
Looking for: Mature, hard working and active members
Region: Primarily United States based
Who we are:
The Sith'ari is a Sith faction based SWTOR guild founded by the Sith Lord Ronan Dexx and his apprentice Rage Kain. The Sith'ari is one of the most organized and reputable guilds around, and we are forever striving to better ourselves. Go to our site at thesithari.guildpower.com, and you shall see that we speak the truth.
M for Mature:
We do not have a set age limit, but maturity is a MUST. We aren't rated E for everyone, and there are no censors on topics or discussions, though we keep it within reason. It does not matter to us what you age is, just that you can converse intelligently and have a respectable level of maturity.
We are a primarily United States based guild, and all of our events and times will be posted in that variance of time zones. If you live in another area you must be able to speak fluent English and have a very flexible time schedule, so that we will not have members only available when others are not.
Our name has meaning, it is not just a jumble of words hastily thrown together, it is what we are and what our goal is. The Sith'ari was the perfect being, but he was not just born a zealot, a product of all the sith teachings, he was forged in the fires and honed by the struggles of what was necessary to become a true Sith. In a way, this is what we strive to do. We endeavor to better ourselves, to increase our knowledge, and to become absolute perfection. We are hard workers, and only the best survive. The Sith must remain strong, and the weak will be...left behind.
What we are looking for:
The Sith'ari is looking for mature players who are interested in working with a Sith faction based organized guild. We accept any Sith characters, including bounty hunters and agents. Do not worry, you are all welcome here. We cannot do it all alone, we need agents to be our eyes and ears on the battlefield, and the bounty hunters to be our gauntlet and destroy our targets. All members have the potential to climb the ranks, but you must prove yourself sufficiently in order to gain status.
*Mature and dedicated members
*Loyal and humorous mindset
*Willingness to learn and to better oneself
*Hard working and responsible mentality
All members must absolutely be active weekly, which involves posting in the forum, talking on the chat room, etc. This is vital to our guild, and lurkers will be removed. If you are to be away for an extended period of time, you must inform your immediate superiors of how long and when you expect to return. Special accommodations will be made for those serving in the military overseas. This is such an important part of a guild, as even if have the best of the best, if you do not have any active members, your guild will die. This is crucial, and lurking is strictly not tolerated. We are strict, but fair. And remember, above all our intent is to have fun!
Our members are geared towards the "hardcore" level of gaming experience and mind set, though our members are interested in all types of the MMO experience (Example: Player Vs Player). We focus on our community, specifically our members. Keep in contact as often as you can, daily if possible even if it is only for a few minutes. Keep up to date with the guild, as we are constantly being updated and expanded, so even an absence of a few days means that you may become lost in what we are discussing and other going ons of the guild. Get to know your fellow brothers, and help them become elite gamers. A member will not be shunned or removed because he/she is lacking in an area, they will be helped along and taught how to better and improve themselves, but you must show a willingness to learn. We may not have the massive numbers of these so called "pro" guilds, but our strength is in our experience, knowledge, and passion for the fight. And remember, we are ALL important to the guild, from the newest members to the experienced Dark Councilors, it takes more than a few to make a great guild.
What it takes to be a member-
Our ideals are of the Sith, and all attached philosophies and beliefs. We do not necessarily expect our non-sith characters (agents/bounty hunters) to know our deepest philosophies and knowledge, but we expect you to have a basis of what to expect and material. We DO expect Sith oriented characters (Warriors/Inquisitors) to have an above average knowledge and understanding of beliefs and lore, including that not only of the Sith but of the force and the dark side.
One of the most important qualities we look for in our members is loyalty. It is extremely important to maintain a high level of loyalty to the community you are a part of and have helped to grow and progress. Too many guilds have failed because the members were divided into separate factions or groups. Your loyalty is to each other, and to the guild as a whole, not any individual member.
Every person has something that they can learn; something they can improve upon. The leaders are no exception, and neither are new members, no matter what your experience level is. Do not spurn an offer that could help you reach you maximum potential, it is important that you want to be the best you can be. Those new to the sith ways will be tutored under the watchful eye of a master, and you will be their apprentice until they see you as being fit for advancement. Apprentices with high ranking masters will not be allowed to skip ranks, there is a chain of command and it will be followed to the letter.
Team Work/ Organization:
Team work is essential, as is organization. If you are going to be a part of a raid, PVP competition, or something similar, then you must be prepared for it and you must attend. If another team member suggests something that could improve your battle strategy, do not immediately dismiss or blow off your comrade's idea. We are all brothers here, so we must all get along and at the very least be civil to each other.
Hopefulls/ Recruits- you will be required to take an inital test to get into the site... If your accepted, your membership is on a trial basis only... You have two weeks to prove yourself.
After you are accepted on your trial membership you will be required to take the "full membership test" and post it within the "new recruits section" of our forum. It will be on display so the whole community can view it.
During your two week trial period you should be active and get to know everyone. Post in our forums and chat it up with our community members. Once the game is released you should also run instances and party up with some of our members to show them what you know. Having fun is the name of the game... And we like FUN in our community.
After your trial period is over, a poll will be posted so that it can be voted on wether you are accepted as a full member and placed... or if your are denied membership and dicharged from the guild.
The main thing we are looking for is knowledgeable people, who are fun to hang around, who are mature, and knows how to play MMO's in groups. We are not looking for trouble makers, immature people, Ninja looters, lazy people, or in active people... You have to stay ACTIVE in this guild.
