[POLICY] Guild Principles

Postby Spryte » 30 Mar 2008, 19:27

Official Guild Principles as of 19th May2007. If you want to give feedback, please do so on Guild Discussions forums now.
Minor Updates:
4th Dec 2007: Added "It's the player who is the member of Equilibrium, not the character they play".
Spryte, MsGrump and Lucky-Phart


Equilibrium - e·qui·lib·ri·um /ˌikwəˈlɪbriəm, ˌɛkwə-/ [ee-kwuh-lib-ree-uhm, ek-wuh-]
3. mental steadiness or emotional stability; habit of calm behavior, judgment, etc

Equilibrium means balance, steadiness, calm, of good judgement.

As a guild we're a collective of more mature players, a guild devoted to being sociable and friendly, to helping others. An Equilibrium guild member is expected to be calm, kind, even-tempered, and able to treat others with respect even in situations of conflict. We aim to become a group of friends who may well connect with each other beyond this one guild, server and game. It's the player who is the member of Equilibrium, not the character they play.

Equilibrium is not interested in being the most powerful, highest level guild - only in exploring the world of Shika as it unfolds, and enjoying the game.
Guild members are expected to display the maturity of someone who is 20+ in real life. Younger players are not likely to fit in well.
We're aiming to build a reputation as a mature, sensible, fun-loving guild - and attract like-minded members.

We will establish codes of conduct, but keep them simple guidance on what it means to be a member of Equilibrium. We expect that full members of our guild will able to represent the guild well, and trusted to do so.

We won't always agree on everything. While the guild officers reserve the right of final decision, they would prefer to never use this, but instead to build an atmosphere of consensus-based decision making, and cooperative solving of problems.

We prefer group gameplay, but understand that it's not always possible as some activities are essentially solo. We do our best to help each other with personal goals, and to use our personal abilities to benefit the guild. We will work together for mutual enjoyment of the game, but ultimately everyone is responsible for their own fun.

This guild won't be for everyone. We also recognize that people, and groups, change, and as such people will leave, subgroups will split off. This is part of the natural evolution of the guild.

We hold the following statements as true about Equilibrium members:
1. We strive to be calm, level-headed, respectful, and helpful to others - even in situations of conflict. Another's bad behaviour is no excuse for our own.
2. Guild or individual power and level is less important than mutual enjoyment of the game.
3. Each of us is an ambassador for the reputation of Equilibrium. We will strive to represent our group well.


In writing these - we have been inspired by experience within Power on Rushu and particularly Tasuja's calm leadership, writings by Kyek about Superlative Exemplar on Rushu, Fecaliser's Flower Power "guild for older players" on Rosal, and many others.
