We are Deliverance of Defeat and we would like to welcome you to our site. This is where we will discuss who we are, what is important to us and what we plan to do in the world of Telon which is the world for Vanguard: Saga of Heroes.
We are a guild that has been formed by two good friends with one goal in mind, we formed together on October 1, 2005 in the hopes of putting together a combination family/raid oriented guild for Vanguard, which means we are not looking to be a numbers guild but a tight group of players guild. After two months of us delibarating for hours on end brain storming where guilds we knew failed and where they have succeeded. We both have, along with our companions have come from a long history of MMORPG's. We are a determined group of mature players who for quite some time have been searching for a game that can keep us satisfied with not only it's playability but also its immersiveness.
One of our main objectives for the guild in Vanguard is going to be having fun. We are part of a great game, and have a great group of people. But along the way in many guilds we have seen, people feel it is their job to achieve something by a certain point in time. Or grind to level 50 without stopping to enjoy the scenery. If all work and no play is what you enjoy, we won't stop you. But not for one second do we wish of you to believe you owe us 'work.' It's a game in which all different types of players deserve to enjoy. All our players' styles will vary, we can assure you that. We have casual players, and hardcore players, along with some in between; and on a whole other spectrum we have Adventurers, Diplomats, and Crafters.
A good portion of the guild will of course be our casual players, and so recruiting will most likely be the same. We accept anyone that is mature enough to be part of our guild and agrees to our terms. As of right now there is a brief waiting period of a few days for us to look over your application and getting votes from the guild. In this time period we would like for you to get to know the guild.
From the point of becoming a companion you will have a choice. If you choose to remain a casual player you need not worry about further advancement. If you are more of a hardcore type player, you may wish to seek further enrichment of the guilds structure. This would give you the option of trying out for a high ranking, or giving a request to the guild council in which asks for you to be evaluated for the ranking you have asked for.Deliverance of Defeat has a simple yet diverse table of organization that was created by Greg and I. From highest rank to lowest rank (Leaders/Elites/Captain/Companions/Recruits). All these ranks will be listed in detail below.
Leaders-This will only be Greg and myself at anytime. Our job is to keep everything running smoothly and to set an example for the rest of the guild. We make up some of the council.
Elites-This is were our most committed/dedicatied companions will be rank under. This is the highest rank for any companions within the guild. Elites make up the rest of the council.
Class Leaders-This is where most of our trustworthy and knowledgable companions will most likely be statused under if they are not under elite status.
Companions-This were most of our casual players will fall under. They will not be asked of much but just to follow the rules within the guild.
Recruits-These are people that are interested in the guild but have not yet been evaluated by the council.
Our long term plans in Vanguard include many things, building ships, personal homes for the members, and a guild hall. We'll also do our best to help members set up their own personal enterprises. This is also important because due to the size of Telon players will have restraints on where they can go due to time spent online and the time it takes to travel there. So if there is a player who wants to go ahead and set up a distributing business or possibly build their own ship and start a shipping business. Many things will are possible in the world of Telon.We also do have a requirement for all members that if they are wanting to be part of the family that they should not be complete alt hounds. We understand the want to play an alt when you need a break from your main character but that does NOT mean you should play every class/race combo to level 20 before trying to go higher. We're looking for dedicated players who take pride in their main and spend the majority of their time on that character.So if you are interested in being part of our little family feel free to go ahead and drop by our forums to say hi and feel free to go ahead and fill out our recruiting application.
