View Full Version : Proposition for Casual Guild



CymTyr

J1mm and I are tooling around with the idea of creating a casual guild.

Purpose: To have a network of reliable people in TQ, possibly expanding to other games down the road. A very laid back, casual approach.

Idea: No required gaming time, MP available if wanted. Potentially creation of a bank for the guild, which could be run be several different people.

This is just a rough framework for what J1mm and I have been talking about. Ideally everyone in the network would have xfire for easy communication.

If you're interested in joining a guild for TQ, with options to expand into other games down the road, then let myself or J1mm know through PM's or replies to this thread. We'd be looking for people that like to have a good time, don't stress about the little things, and are respectful of their fellow guildies.

This is just an idea at the moment, we'll see what kind of responses we get.

Also, you can add us to your xfire friends list if you want to get in touch with us that way.


One last note: I would like to have at least a couple people with strong systems and fast internet for max MP games when available, but this isn't necessary if you want to join. More of a wish list on my part. :D

My xfire name: cymtyr

Edit: Neurro can also be contacted. Also, when I say "Casual" I mean no required game time, but obviously, if we want to grow and make something happen, a certain amount of dedication would have to be present.

---
J1mm, Neurro feel free to add anything I may have forgotten. :rockon:

Peace,

I just want to clarify a bit on Cym's post and say that when we say that there is no required amount of time to be spent in TQ and/or the Guild, but in the same instance, we aren't going to take gamers that keep themselves distant from us or the game. This will be a laid back guild, but if everything goes right, there will be a happy level of activity and participation from everyone, WITHOUT the stress of having to meet a requirement.

If we do this Guild bank, you can expect a huge amount of loot that'll be available, considering that I know my own ability when it comes to farming magic items and I'm sure j1mm and Cym are quite capable too.

My xfire is "neurro" if anyone wants to talk further. You can of course contact Cym and j1mm as well :)

Although it is not mentioned...

If we do get a guild up and running, we would highly recommend getting xfire. Its easier to keep track of friends and guildies, and it connects you better with the guild.

Like I said, its highly recommended that you have xfire (not required). However it does get you in on the action instead of being left out in the cold :D

Sounds good, include me. I'll try to install xfire, don't know if my notebook can handle all the extra stuff running.

I think this is a great idea for those of us with the dedication, but not the time. I'd be very interested in helping make this community happen. XFire name is stylgar, look me up.

CymTyr

Awesome response on this.

From what we've seen, it looks like this is a go ahead.

We're still ironing out the details, but we will have a guild portal site up soon, and we will have an official name soon.

Keep tuned! I have a lot of friends listed on xfire now, we will post the name here and will create a persistant chat room on xfire for guildies.

The really cool thing about this is we will most likely have a bank set up, to help people finishing sets and/or creating new characters that would like a little help.

As we said earlier, we could potentially expand if part/all of the guild decides to play another game as well.

I've seen other guilds with "chapters" in many different games. This is certainly a possibility. Obviously in TQ there's a very minimal amount of leadership required, but in other games it would probably be the same basic premise: emphasis on fun, and respecting each other.

Also, once the GP site is created we will be posting a guild charter. Nothing too fancy, just a mission statement of sorts with some general guidelines.

--

As far as xfire, if you're running a system that can't run it, send one of us a PM please.

Awesome, count me in. I haven't played much (or any) MP, but a nice casual guild would totally get me on.

I forgot to mention that the Guild will have access to a pro hosted, 30 slot ventrilo server. Once Iron Lore fixes the conflict issues with voice chat and TQ I think it'll be pretty popular.

I've been looking forward to finding a guild for TQ for some time now. My xfire name is edenex look me up.

Alright well we have the members, now we just need a name and a site. Any ideas on a name? Anybody else care to help with the web site as well?

CymTyr
07-10-2006, 06:05 PM
Okay the name for our guild is Blue Lion Syndicate.

I just put together a Guild Portal site: http://www.guildportal.com/Guild.aspx?GuildID=97519&TabID=835898

There's a charter on there but it's just a basic rundown of how we're going to work. It may get adjusted and optimized in the near future.

Feel free to sign up! We'll also create an xfire chat room as well, so expect your invites to the chat room as our way of getting to know you better. This will be happening over the next few days.

Please sign up on the site, as well. Eventually we may get a bigger/better site but at this point I'm a poor college student so... :rockon:

Anyway this is a start.

I hope this works as well as we're aiming for. :D

Signed-up to the Blue Lion Syndicate. Had to choose another name because someone else had it. Anyhow, "Sans De Coeur is "my name on the guild, player name on TQ is "Razorwind." Hope to see you guys there, I have some equipment that I need to offload soon, eating up precious bag space.

I'm in a clan abit like the one you guys are creating and i hope you do well in creating it, my clan has been around for 4 years (i've only been in it since January :p) and it's a great feeling being part of a large community (100+ actual members with more members of various game guilds) who play loads of different games!

gl hf! :happy:

Good idea.

Lame guild name :)

Wouldn't it be a bit more appropriate to have a name that reflected an ancient Greek guild name or something ? Like Argonauts? or Orpheus' Chosen? or Templars of Zeus or something like that?

tenabrae
07-11-2006, 11:00 AM
The name turned me off ;)

neurro
07-11-2006, 01:14 PM
The name is a universal name. We aren't limiting ourself to just TQ. If the name of our guild turns you off to the point you don't want to join, you shouldn't be bothering to begin with.

Lions = Kings.
Blue Lions = Kings of the highest order.
Syndicate = Group

It works.

as you see, we are looking at just for TQ atm. But later we might move onto other games. I mean how weird will it be to have a guild called "Zeus Thunder Bolt" in Battlefield 2??? :D

Yes please, if you guys are interested go to our Guild Portal and sign up, that way we know who wants to do this and who just added us to their xfire and never said anything. :D

Cernunnos
07-11-2006, 04:20 PM
I think if you are beginning the guild and expect people to join, then you would probably want to either accept suggestions about the guild name, since you want members, and they should have a say so as well.

But I respect your name, I just prefer not to join a guild named that.

Good luck though. Incidentally, in reference to your cross-game guild names, there arne't any lions in battlefield 2, and the guild I was in on WoW was called Sparta, even though we aren't really Greek *shrug*

But whatever works for ya, hope it takes off.

CymTyr
07-11-2006, 08:38 PM
Cernunnos, the name was decided prior to us accepting any new members because three of us decided we would start a guild.

As far as the name, the definition has been outlined.

This is for Titan Quest, not MMO #1,265. Yes we're talking about down the road expanding but right now, we're keeping it simple.

Thanks for your warm wishes.

I'm setup as Sans De Coeur over at the Blue Lion, but I don't have Xfire installed. Is this going to be a problem? My notebook is pretty tapped for resources and don't want to overload the poor girl since she's been so good to run Titan Quest for me :)

Hey folks

I'm definitely interested in this kind of a guild. I've been into mmos for the past few years but I decided to take a break from the grind and play shorter more casual games. I've been in several active guilds and spent countless hours helping out and leading raids.

Have a few questions though, do you guys plan to use Hamachi for hosting games? I live in Greece and i've had a lot more luck playing MP over VPN than through gamespy. Also, who do you plan on hosting the games? My pings really vary depending on where people are located.

I'll go register on your guild site, hope to see you online soon :headbang:

Xfire: Doobinsky

Yeah, surprisingly it runs but I would have preferred to run it on my home machine instead. Hope that the next patch comes out soon to rectify the matter. I'm really beginning to jones on some real smooth and stutter free gameplay. Anyhow, what goes for a guy that does not have Xfire installed on their computer? Will I still be included in the reindeer games?
