Here are a few simple rules and suggestions i think all Guild Creators AND Leaders should follow (YES, i know i'm not a Forum MOD):

icon_arrow.gif IC You should rally people IN CHARACTER as well as OUT OF CHARACTER. I mean if you've joined the group online that doesn't mean your CHARACTER even knows about it. You can't just expect your character to know everything about the Guild. Also try recruiting IN CHARACTER. Not everyone knows about the forums.

icon_arrow.gif What is the point of your Guild? Most of these guilds are pretty good ideas but some have no set-up whatsoever. There are someguilds who work with just one leader but others work with multiple leaders. You should decide WHAT you want your guild to turn out to be, HOW you want it set up WITHIN the guild, WHAT roleplaying character types you want, HOW you will go about making a name for your guild in Dyso, and of course WHAT type of guild yours is (evil, nuetral, good, mixed, fighting, peaceful, ect.)

icon_arrow.gif Your Characters REMEMBER ONLY ONE OF THE PEOPLE WHO JOIN CHARACTER"S IS INCLUDED INTO THE GUILD RIGHT OF THE BAT. Not every last one of their characters knows about the guild and are included in it.

icon_arrow.gif Flaws Think on what FLAWS your guild might have and how you would like to protect yourself from those flaws. This can help A LOT in the long run.

icon_arrow.gif How will your guild help Dysotopia? That says it all. Is your guild going into Dyso's History Books or is it just a passing shame?

icon_arrow.gif How will it work out? REALLY think about setting up your guild BEFORE you post about it! Sometimes what may be good ideas turn out to be something that may never go anywhere.

icon_arrow.gif THINK Some of the guilds i have seen (the good ones) rally people and are REAL guilds. Others turn out to be stupid, idiotic, or just plain pointless. Really THINK before you are ready to post.

icon_arrow.gif Are YOU ready for this? When you make a guild your the leader. Are you ready to do something like this? Are YOU YOURSELF READY to head a major organization? Think on this.

icon_arrow.gif History The History of your guild. Some guilds do their History AFTERWARDS but this is a bad idea right now especially with Dyso 3x and "The Rebirth" coming into play. Make your history and include it in your post.

icon_arrow.gif Guild House, Items, Ect. This is something you will want to consider if you get your guild up and running before Dyso 3x. Gesh is making great progress and if your in a fumble about where you want your guild to be and what effect you want your item to have it may slow him down or he may just wait to implant it till AFTER Dyso 3x is ready. But beware, make sure your guild MEMBERS are happy with all your desicions.

icon_arrow.gif The Extras If your thinkinng about adding a special roleplay thing, or other stuff into your guild WAIT until it's ready and there's people joining. Otherwise you'll spring to much out on everyone too fast.

icon_arrow.gif Other Guilds CHECK OTHER GUILDS. Check their members and what their organization is. We don't want duplicates of things and we don't want people approaching people that are already in a guild that may oppose you. This WILL create problems in your guilds future, especially if you do it repeatedly. Check the forums for old guilds as well. These may give you ideas.

icon_arrow.gif Dieties You should consider what dieties you want in your guild. If you don't want a particular one don't worrry then. If it IS based on a diety i suggest you get: The God's Dogma, How he acts, Info on him, Info on his followers, and other stuff about him. If your doing a guild on JUST good, evil,nuetral , nuetral and evil, good and neutral, ect. give a REASON why it's like that.


I will add more if i think of it but for now this sums it up. I suggest you think and prepare before you start a guild. Once it's satrted tho, do your best not to make it fail. If it does fail, wait a few days or a week and try something diffrent. You never know what may work. icon_mrgreen.gif Good luck and God speed.
EDIT: Thought of another one: "Dieties"

When we see talent or people that could possibly be considered a KWM member we will offer them employment.

The defense of Kravenwood and it's lowlands, and the personal whims of our Lord and Leader, KravenMoorehed.

We will have sub leaders for each of our divisions, as planned by the Militia Leaders

We are an lawful evil, we care not for most people, but only for our own concerns.


icon_arrow.gif Your Characters REMEMBER ONLY ONE OF THE PEOPLE WHO JOIN CHARACTER"S IS INCLUDED INTO THE GUILD RIGHT OF THE BAT. Not every last one of their characters knows about the guild and are included in it.

Hence why it's wise to just have 1 character in a guild and only use the knowledge of that character for that guilds operations.

icon_arrow.gif Flaws Think on what FLAWS your guild might have and how you would like to protect yourself from those flaws. This can help A LOT in the long run.

The Kravenwood Militia is an OFFCIAL MILITIA, not a little guild running around with no home, we have a fortress and it is protected by LAW and the King's rule, no budging this one.

icon_arrow.gif How will your guild help Dysotopia? That says it all. Is your guild going into Dyso's History Books or is it just a passing shame?

The Kravenwood Militia has been around since the Isle of Dysotopia was founded, and shall remain forever as such.

icon_arrow.gif How will it work out? REALLY think about setting up your guild BEFORE you post about it! Sometimes what may be good ideas turn out to be something that may never go anywhere.

Already answered.

icon_arrow.gif THINK Some of the guilds i have seen (the good ones) rally people and are REAL guilds. Others turn out to be stupid, idiotic, or just plain pointless. Really THINK before you are ready to post.

It's often wise to make sure that they are a hardcore full time player and not a one-time fling that's passing through to accept into your guild.

icon_arrow.gif Are YOU ready for this? When you make a guild your the leader. Are you ready to do something like this? Are YOU YOURSELF READY to head a major organization? Think on this.

Yes.

icon_arrow.gif History The History of your guild. Some guilds do their History AFTERWARDS but this is a bad idea right now especially with Dyso 3x and "The Rebirth" coming into play. Make your history and include it in your post.

The history is long and detailed and will soon have records available for purchase for your viewing pleasure (... not too sure of this, I don't want to overstep my bounds, but I think that KWM should have a long and detailed book from Kraven about how it came to be)

icon_arrow.gif Guild House, Items, Ect. This is something you will want to consider if you get your guild up and running before Dyso 3x. Gesh is making great progress and if your in a fumble about where you want your guild to be and what effect you want your item to have it may slow him down or he may just wait to implant it till AFTER Dyso 3x is ready. But beware, make sure your guild MEMBERS are happy with all your desicions.

I'm sure whatever Lord Kraven decides upon will be sufficient for our needs.

icon_arrow.gif The Extras If your thinkinng about adding a special roleplay thing, or other stuff into your guild WAIT until it's ready and there's people joining. Otherwise you'll spring to much out on everyone too fast.

No comment.

icon_arrow.gif Other Guilds CHECK OTHER GUILDS. Check their members and what their organization is. We don't want duplicates of things and we don't want people approaching people that are already in a guild that may oppose you. This WILL create problems in your guilds future, especially if you do it repeatedly. Check the forums for old guilds as well. These may give you ideas.

The Kravenwood Militia is unique.

icon_arrow.gif Dieties You should consider what dieties you want in your guild. If you don't want a particular one don't worrry then. If it IS based on a diety i suggest you get: The God's Dogma, How he acts, Info on him, Info on his followers, and other stuff about him. If your doing a guild on JUST good, evil,nuetral , nuetral and evil, good and neutral, ect. give a REASON why it's like that.

This is up to Lord Kraven.

I will add more if i think of it but for now this sums it up. I suggest you think and prepare before you start a guild. Once it's satrted tho, do your best not to make it fail. If it does fail, wait a few days or a week and try something diffrent. You never know what may work. icon_mrgreen.gif Good luck and God speed.

What do you mean "In Character", sir? I do not understand the meaning of that icon_wink.gif

icon_arrow.gif What is the point of your Guild? Most of these guilds are pretty good ideas but some have no set-up whatsoever.

Well, we are merely a gathering of likeminded people, trying to stop violence and trying to make people realise that money is NOT a valuable thing

icon_arrow.gif Your Characters REMEMBER ONLY ONE OF THE PEOPLE WHO JOIN CHARACTER"S IS INCLUDED INTO THE GUILD RIGHT OF THE BAT. Not every last one of their characters knows about the guild and are included in it.

Well, characters, again, I do not understand what you mean by this, sir, how could I possibly have total strangers in my guild when I have never met them?

icon_arrow.gif Flaws Think on what FLAWS your guild might have and how you would like to protect yourself from those flaws. This can help A LOT in the long run.

The only flaw of our Order, is the fact that there are still people who do not believe in our cause

icon_arrow.gif How will your guild help Dysotopia? That says it all. Is your guild going into Dyso's History Books or is it just a passing shame?

Well, I have already said that, and I do not feel like repeating myself

icon_arrow.gif How will it work out? REALLY think about setting up your guild BEFORE you post about it! Sometimes what may be good ideas turn out to be something that may never go anywhere.

Setting it up? But dear sir, I already did this a while ago, I introduced my guild with a speech

icon_arrow.gif THINK Some of the guilds i have seen (the good ones) rally people and are REAL guilds. Others turn out to be stupid, idiotic, or just plain pointless. Really THINK before you are ready to post.

Why, I certainly do hope that you could count us as one of the good ones.

icon_arrow.gif Are YOU ready for this? When you make a guild your the leader. Are you ready to do something like this? Are YOU YOURSELF READY to head a major organization? Think on this.

But ofcourse I am, why would I have started it in the first place?

icon_arrow.gif History The History of your guild. Some guilds do their History AFTERWARDS but this is a bad idea right now especially with Dyso 3x and "The Rebirth" coming into play. Make your history and include it in your post.

The history, It must be lying about here somewhere, but wait, the Keepers of the Lost secrets already have it.

icon_arrow.gif Guild House, Items, Ect. This is something you will want to consider if you get your guild up and running before Dyso 3x. Gesh is making great progress and if your in a fumble about where you want your guild to be and what effect you want your item to have it may slow him down or he may just wait to implant it till AFTER Dyso 3x is ready. But beware, make sure your guild MEMBERS are happy with all your desicions.

But I have already all of these things, it has been taken care of, although I do wish that those construction workers would hurry up.icon_wink.gif

icon_arrow.gif The Extras If your thinkinng about adding a special roleplay thing, or other stuff into your guild WAIT until it's ready and there's people joining. Otherwise you'll spring to much out on everyone too fast.

Extras? Extras? What could you possibly mean by that?

icon_arrow.gif [b]Other Guilds
CHECK OTHER GUILDS. Check their members and what their organization is. We don't want duplicates of things and we don't want people approaching people that are already in a guild that may oppose you. This WILL create problems in your guilds future, especially if you do it repeatedly. Check the forums for old guilds as well. These may give you ideas.

I am quite certain that we are the only ones upholding our beliefs, although I do regret that there are only so few of us

icon_arrow.gif Dieties You should consider what dieties you want in your guild. If you don't want a particular one don't worrry then. If it IS based on a diety i suggest you get: The God's Dogma, How he acts, Info on him, Info on his followers, and other stuff about him. If your doing a guild on JUST good, evil,nuetral , nuetral and evil, good and neutral, ect. give a REASON why it's like that.

The belief in a god has little to do with the beliefs that we stand for, anybody could be accepted

I will add more if i think of it but for now this sums it up. I suggest you think and prepare before you start a guild. Once it's satrted tho, do your best not to make it fail. If it does fail, wait a few days or a week and try something diffrent. You never know what may work. icon_mrgreen.gif Good luck and God speed.
EDIT: Thought of another one: "Dieties"


Well, I certainly have answered all of your suggestions.

geez...somebody has got way too much free time.

Hmm...seems you need about 2 more "we are fighting evil" groups to have a full dozen.

Maybe I'll come back and form a clan based on me family, mom was a drow bar wench and dad was a pissed off mountian dwarf. A family off half breed pissed off bad attitude short people who really dont care about "good" or "evil".

I must be good, typed this in a few seconds and still made it shorter the the US Constitution. Get outside once in awhile guys lol, that bright thing in the sky is called The Sun!

PS someone tell Jon to sit down and SHADDUP icon_smile.gif
