The current CEO of the AC is an
ex-pirate, smuggler, huntress and scoundrel who was raised and
trained by the goblins of Booty Bay before being lured to the
Outlands where she became fascinated with and began working for The
Ethereals. After a meeting with Nexus-Prince Haramad she was granted
license to found the AC and began recruiting friends and like minded
people. While the AC is very much a for-profit organization, it
isn't above charitable works, especially if they reflect favorably
upon the AC itself or the Consortium as a whole. Because the AC does
many good works in the area of trying to restore Azeroth to its
former glory, there is ample room for idealists to work along side
those who are simply in it for thrills or riches.
The AC is a role-playing guild with the
above mentioned theme, that because of its unique nature allows
characters from many walks of life within its ranks. From lofty
minded paladins, to cut-throat rogues all are welcome to join the AC
provided they obey what few rules there are, and carry out any orders
that come from the Nexus-Prince. The rules themselves are mostly OOC
in nature, and should be common sense stuff most RPers know. In short,
we want everyone to have fun, play nice and get along.
Guild Chat is IC – If you need
and IC rationale, then the AC issues communication devices that are
part of your Hearthstones. These devices are Ethereal Tech and
cannot be replicated by normal engineering means. If someone leaves
or is removed from the AC, the Hearthstone will still function but
the communication feature is disabled.
Officer Chat is OOC – Anything
you want to discuss or ask that is of an OOC nature goes here. If
for some reason you MUST say something OOC in the Guild Channel,
please denote such with brackets (()),, see below.
Obey RP Server Rules – That
means keep OOC chatter out of say/yell, follow RP naming conventions
for alts, avoid netspeak. Again if you find that you must speak
OOC, use (()), , or something similar to denote OOC speech.
Need before Greed – This is how
we operate in all instances, groups, ect. If you need an item, roll
on it, unless its BoP then those that need who are of an appropriate
class may roll, followed by others of a different class who it would
be an upgrade for, followed by shards. All shards gathered in AC
sponsored instances go to the Guild Bank for member enchantments.
Don't be Greedy – The guild bank
is open for all to use. Anything in there is community property.
But if you take more than you need, or if you never put things in
the bank, then someone will talk to you. If you are ever caught
selling items from the Guild Bank, you will be ejected from the
Guild. The sole exclusion is if an officer is selling junk to make
space and turns the money back into the bank – That must be
cleared with the guild master ahead of time.
Engineering/Mining – If you have
no strong preference for a character's trade professions, consider
engineering or mining as one of your professions. Both fit well
with the theme of the guild, as the Consortium is very
techno-centric and deals a lot with rare metals and gems.
Consortium Reputation – At level
64+ consider working on your Consortium Reputation, not only do they
offer some very nice rewards, but it makes a lot of sense IC for all
members of the AC to at least be Friendly. Again this isn't a
Minimize Angst – While there is
nothing wrong with serious and intense RP some of the time, please
try to avoid making characters that have the Tragedy Du Jour. Once
in a while is okay, but if a character is constantly filled with
deep emotional trauma and it never gets better, that's too much.
