General Guild Info

We are a EU-based, PvX, PvP-focused, Hardcore mercenary Guild.

We're mostly situated in Europe, but don't let that stop you, if you're from outside of Europe, but happy to deal with the ping; we're happy to take you into our ranks.

We've got two branches within the Phoenix Guard.

The core. Our core will consist of our fundamental members; you will be our PvPers, our committed, our loyal, our active members. You will be the forefront of our pride, our sword that strikes, and our backbone of our community. This is not for the faint of heart, we want people who care about their gear, we want people who are willing to kick some ass. We want people who strive to be the best that they can be, and who want to exceed their own boundaries, while knowing their limitations. To join this branch, we would like to know a bit about you, your experience in other Guilds, as well as your experience in other MMOs, preferably games where you played a PvP role, we'd love to hear your stories. Those who are the seekers of glory, those who want to make a name for themselves, those who want to be known for their heroics during that daring defence, or the ones rushing through those walls as they came crashing down; this is your branch. This is your opportunity. This is your Guild.

Our secondary branch, is what we call the Artisan branch. Though not our core, you will be respected for what you bring to the table. This branch is for the dedicated craftsmen, the laid back, the PvEers. Your style is up to you, all we need from you, is your loyalty. Know that your crafts will contribute to the continuation, and the progression of the Phoenix Guard. Blacksmiths, your crafts will be valued, as they are tried and tested by our ranks. Lumberjacks, your skills will be needed for the construction of our homes, our holds, and perhaps to assist your fellow craftsmen in their trade. Traders, you will be fundamental in ensuring that we can assist our allies, in any way that we can. But these are just a small handful of trades within AoC, know that you will all be valued, and respected members of the Phoenix Guard.

In either branch, our ideal member would be at least 18 years old, and mature. We make exceptions for younger players, if their maturity is deemed acceptable.

So, our goals:

Short-term, we are going to be offering a multitude of services to other Guilds, and alliances. We will be conducting the following:
The defending, or sacking of caravans.
Providing defense, or the besieging of towns, cities, or metropolises.
We will be defending mines, or, we'll be wiping them out.
We also provide personal escorts, for individual people, or groups. 

The general idea is that we have a unique contract system in place within our Guild. An outside Guild will be able to come to us, tell us what they need, and we will charge them for it. The people on that contract, get a slice of the pay. This gives you, as a member of our Guild, the unique position of choosing your battleground. If you feel like taking it chill, and decide to escort another Guild's caravan to safety, or if you feel like letting all Hell break loose, and want to participate in a siege; you can check out our available, ongoing contracts, and choose.

Of course, if we need extra hands to ensure the success of a contract, we will call upon people to participate, and you will be expected to join.

Long-term;

We are open to Alliances with other Guilds, and would like to either hold a city, or metropolis of our own, as a leading political party. With this, we will turn the city/metropolis into a militaristic node. But, we are not tyrants; we will tax our citizens fairly, for it is the citizens, who make the node what it is. For what is a metropolis, if it's empty?

If this is not obtainable, for whatever reason, or if the situation is more favourable: Our Plan B will be to provide an exclusive security service to a particular city, or metropolis. In return for our unwavering support, and loyalty, we will expect to be given space for our members to grow. This includes, but is not limited to; land within the node (such as mansions), as well as freeholds. As well as an income from the guild holding the node, to ensure that our members are paid fairly.

A side note to other Guilds checking this out:

As mentioned above; we're open to alliances. We don't want to get involved in massive alliances, and keeping our diplomatic links as few as possible, as is the nature of our services, I'm sure you can understand.

We're happy to open talks with any Guild, regardless of your stance, and I'm sure we can work something out.

We, here at the Phoenix Guard hope that you've enjoyed reading through our recruitment post, and please do not hesitate to contact us.

If you feel that you're on the fence, don't fret. We have a forum being constructed right now, that we'll add to this post in a little bit. There, we will elaborate further on all the points listed above, and will also give you your personal space to contact us there, as well, if need be.
