Blades Out, Not In
An ancient Celtic family rule which states that one member of the family shall not turn their blade on their family. Hate and Rage are to be pointed outwardly at the foes invading our lands. Love and Companionship are to be pointed inward at the family. Attacking a member of the family can result in dismissal and will be dealt with swiftly by each family leader.
I acknowledge this rule and swear to uphold it.
I will honor the community by acting in a manner that speaks of our kindness, I will refrain from activities that would dishonor the community, and I will honor the requests of the community elders. I will fight my opponents with honor, giving them a fair fight. I will not spawn camp, grief, cheat, or harass my allies or foes. I will encourage them to fight and win my battles with the highest of honors.
I will respect those around me both within the community and outside, I will act in a manner which speaks of our benevolence and kindness, and I will not disrespect the community by engaging in spiteful comments or actions even when provoked.
I will hold our community's integrity close to heart and I realize that my actions directly affect that of the whole community. I will say what I do, and do what I say. I will not fall back on promises or make false claims.
I will meet others with open arms and welcome those who cross our path. I will act in a welcoming way and ensure that those who participate in our events feel welcome whether they are part of the community or not. I will allow my actions to speak of our character, and reserve my words for offering assistance.
I accept this credo and swear to abide by it.
Think We Not Me (Push vs Pull)
When asking for help from the Community try to avoid wording your request as such that you are asking someone to do the work for you. A statement such as "Can someone help me with this quest?" is a request; it pushes your objective on others. However, by rewording your statement to "I am organizing a group for this quest, If you are interested let me know." you create an invitation, which pulls members of similar interest to you. Both mean the exact same thing however one expresses that you are looking out for your community and not just for yourself. This in turn will encourage shared adventures. After all, a community is not about you or I, it's about us.
Play How You Want, When You Want, As Long As You Want
Our community is a casual gaming community and with this we do not tell people how to play, when to play, or how long to play. Our members are free to come and go as they please without the fear of exile or grudges being bore. They can play as much or as little as they like.
Smiles are more important than guild tags. Conversation & Voice Communication
The synergy of a community can turn ugly at any moment. Conversation within the community needs to have clear boundaries to prevent bad blood and hostile attitudes from forming. We ask that all members keep the voice communication and community chat child safe at all times. We have a lot of families that game together and we do not wish to cause heartache. To keep our children safe we require
all minors under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult while using voice communication.
In addition please refrain from discussing religion, politics, and other heated debate prone topics. We do not need unnecessary divides within the community. Trolling is strictly forbidden and falls under the
"Blades Out, Not In" Rule and will result in removal from the community. Using Community Efforts For Self Profit
Please do not use the Marketplace, or Family Vault to fund your gaming experience. We do not seek profits from within the family and at no time should you claim the work of others to turn a profit. This is also considered part of the "Blades Out, Not In"
I understand these guidelines and will follow them.
Membership & Our Rotating Rosters
The Gaiscioch Family is an out of game community that plays games together. We actively rotate our in game rosters removing the players who have been away the longest to invite the players that need invites. This is how we get around small guild size limits. Members who are removed in game can always be reinvited so long as their family standing is good. Simply log-in to the website and click the
next to the chapter you wish to rejoin. Being removed does not affect your community standing and you will resume right where you left off. Multi-Guild Membership
The Gaiscioch Family welcomes you to take part in other guilds and communities on our server. Our focus is on Community and as such we encourage all members to be active in communities. Feel free to explore other guilds, events, gameplay styles. Your membership with us will not be affected.
The Gaiscioch have a long history of being inclusive to the outside community. Guild membership should never be required to participate in our activities and community. Welcome outsiders to join us in whatever we are doing.
I understand these policies and will follow them.
