Yep, Tecca's got it right. I'll be pointing that to a basic forum by next week and begin customizing it.

And thanks Mokwhy! Hopefully we'll make great allies since we're both coming from EP.

Psh, even if they don't, whose to stop us from allying with one another anyway? :)

An alliance between guilds would definitely be a deciding factor on server choice.

I've received a couple of PMs expressing interest in our guild & asking for more information, so here's a copy of one of my responses.

For leadership:

Ideally, one or two members would specialize in leading raids. One or two would specalize in managing the guild bank, selling surplus items, and ensuring it people aren't robbing it, one or two members would be involved with community development and any conduct issues. The council will make decisions together, and everyone will know a little about everything, but the idea is to still have 'grus' who specialize and therefore have a somewhat greater influence on decisions in their specialty.

From there, we will have officers that also are broken up into teams of 2 or 3, also specializing the same way council members do. Anything they can't take care of on their own or that they're unsure of gets forwarded to a council member. Although this structure is encouraged, it won't be forced. If someone wants to message a specific council member all the time, I don't see any reason to have a rule against it, unless the council finds that this is interfering with their ability to lead. Anyway, I think that good leadership is important, but as long as you have it, the biggest problem that can be addressed preemptively is loot distribution, so...

Raids & Loot Distribution

Although we are going to be gearing ourselves towards casual raiders, I would love to see a hardcore team develop as well as a group who has as much fun foregoing raiding all together. Right now though, I'm focusing on bringing in people who enjoy raiding, but definitely want to spend time doing other quests & activities as well. I will develop a section of the forum for each possible raid and have weekly signups for those raids. It will be up to an officer to poll everyone for what time works best and have the weekly signups. If not enough people have an interest one week, no harm done. Likewise, if too many people sign up, we will simply open up another group for the raid, possibly seeking out if another time works best to attract even more members to that group. To me, the most important idea here is ensure that people are not sacrificing real life responsibilities for raids/compulsory attendance.

Now, one problem I've seen with many guilds is fairness of loot distribution and guild bank resources. For that reason, I think it would be a good idea to implement a modified form of DKP. Ideally, I would like to see points awarded for helping guild members, crafting/adding valuable items to the bank, traditional raid related points, and possibly small amounts for just being active in the community. Instead of daily withdrawal limits for the guild bank, there would simply be deduction from the modified DKP Points. on a side note, if someone removes an item, improves it, and puts it back, the would have a net gain.

Community
I think that with good leadership and good preventative measures for loot-drama, the largest and most fun part of any guild is it's community. I'd like to have a real friendship among the guild members. I want to see a lively guild channel in game, and possibly even new friendships forged outside of game. I'd like to see a vent/TS server packed full of members not just doing raid groups, but simply socializing with each other as we play. Just to try and incentivise this type of community growth, I'd like to award some amount of points for being a lively part of the community.

If the finished game has the main joinable guilds of before, I would see nothing wrong with joining any of them, including The Dark Brotherhood. I simply would hope that the leadership council forbids stealing from guild members as well as murder of players who did nothing wrong. I want our guild to have a least restrictive atmosphere but ensure that we have a positive influence on the server and greatly incentivise contributing to the guild.

Edit: All of the above said, if you want to be a member of The Obsidian Brotherhood but there is anything that you would add/change, please let me know. For one, there's still plenty of opportunity for leadership positions, but whether you hold one or not this is your guild too so you, feel free to help us shape it into the best it can be!

Just an update for anyone following along: The forums installed great and the theme is coming along nicely too. I'm simply taking a couple more days to iron out the look of everything before going live with the first version of everything.
