-Brief presentation on guild university and command school-

Hello people and guild leaders of ESO this tread will introduce two of our guild services that will be open provided by guild Brawdolieath.

First one is university where you can come to contribute and learn about aspects of this game. As a part of university autonomy, you can join in our guild university regardless of your guild or alliance. Other service that our guild will provide will be Command School. Because of subjects nature, we will only give access to faction members of Aldmeri Dominion, sorry alliance comes first. Now there will be brief introduction to these services and how to apply for them, you can also find them in guild section under university tab.

House of Scholars

House of Scholars consists of members of our guild university. This is one of those rare places that accept in people from any alliances or guilds. This is part of University autonomy agreement. No sides nor politics conflict on it’s pure mission for gathering of knowledge. Our guild university gives teaching and research material for our two schools battle- and command school.

How university works, in a nutshell:

First remember to check university database for studies on the same subject matter that you are planning to work on. We only publish a particular subject matter once. This means that only work that is most superior will be published. If your work is replaced by someone else you will still have your academic rank within University.

When your research/study subject is decided please notify the Headmaster of the University about it. He will reply to it to let you know if the study is needed to avoid you wasting your time.
After you have done your paper on a subject send it to the Headmaster. He may give an evaluation on it and there will be a small notice if the subject was not passed. If passed, your work will be published on the University archive at our guild forum. Congrats for finishing paper.
When you have enough published studies for next University rank you can contact your old buddy headmaster. He will sort out the matter and your rank will be risen accordingly.


Command school

Applying for command school will work trough your own guilds leader. Leader of your guild sends application message to grand advisor of guild Brawdolieath trough PM. This way guild leaders always know who are participating on command school and therefore can affect on who gains access. There will also be small in-game registering fee for this service but when game itself starts that fee will be decided. In some occasions with allies and diplomatic purposes that fee can be lifted totally. After gaining access to command school, students will be given total access to command school material under agreement that material is not shared. This is not because of some idiotic ideas about copy rights, but for sake of game experience. Let others enjoy command school experience too. There will be some research material on different subjects and also lecture in some form. After student feels ready he can PM grand advisor for exam details. Exam will be held in convenient time and passed student has then graduated command school.

So there is the introduction. Hopefully these services will deepen your game experience :) More information about these services will be provided later (such as academic ranks and requirements for these).

If you have comments or questions please leave that in this tread so others may find out about those too.

-How University works-

Hello and welcome to our guild university. This university provides more deeper and unique role playing feature to Elder Scroll Online. Unlike some guilds are restricted university doors are open for everyone. Here you can publish your materials on game, without limitations like guilds, alliances, gaming platforms or different servers. Anyone regardless of those difficulties can get their works published here under their chosen name.

Here is be step by step explanations how University system works.

1. Apply for university
You can see membership application option in left under "membership", choose University application and send request. When guild leader gets to accept applications you are Student of university.

2. Getting your works published
Firstly reason why only university staff publishes papers in university is that we want to keep standard of published materials high. This system is also made because now we avoid double publishes and therefore big mess in our university archive. Next here are the steps for getting your work published:
1. Send your work with PM to Headmaster or if that rank is vacant send PM to Grand Advisor Raistlin (same guy who has written this post). Remember to add your chosen publisher name so we can add that on top of your work. If such name is not given we will use your character/forum name.
2. When University has received your work we will compare it to university archive. If there is none same published material on subject we will post your writing under your chosen name. If there is published material with same subject already we will add your material to it and place your chosen name under Original writer at "Added Researcher". If case is more complicated we will send your work back with suggestions and evaluation.

3. Getting degrees from university
While you are student in this university you have right to gain degrees from it. This means basically more you publish in here, the higher your degree will be. Here are the degrees in starting order with the requirements:

Student (Has granted membership into university).
Candidate (Has written 3 published works or added substantial information on 10 works by others).
Master Graduated (Has written 6 published works, can choose from them master degree name).
Licentiate (Has written 10 published works with 1 extended study in one field. Has passed exam on the extended study subject).
Doctor (-of subject) (Has written 15 published works with 1-3 extended studies in one field. Has defended his study on university council trial).

You can have multiple degrees, but when you start new one your old written material does not count for new degree. So to do example 2 doctors you need first get doctor degree and then start making candidacy for next degree. Degrees of student will be displayed on member list and if you get some degree your "Student" rank will be replaced with your new degree.

*Important notices
1. Keep list of your published materials for future ranks, some of your writings might of been replaced by better ones.
2. Your guides/researches might be replaced if anyone does more extended study on same subject. This just means that your work is replaced but your written material count for next rank will be counted, once your work is published that counts no matter what happens later.
3. Written material requirements number is total number of your all time written materials. So for Candidate you do 3 published materials and because next ranks needs 6, you need write 3 more.
4. Exams and trials are for role-playing experience, at this phase we don't really fuck up with your career in university if you have fulfilled degree requirements. If you want, you can request trial for your degree even at lower level than licentiate or doctor.


4. Getting employed at university

Like in any pyramid scheme, when you have established yourself well in community you can become leading expert on your choice of field. This means that you have contributed vast amounts of knowledge on this project and have held Doctor degree on that subject for a while. Being professor in this University is not for casual person, this rank is for those with keen interest and hefty contribution towards this project.

What kind of material we publish?
We publish all kind of material related/relevant to Elder Scroll Online. This includes but does not exclude to:
History (as in lore)
Social studies (gamer behavior related issues and studies)
Anthropology (on different races)
War tactics (practical tactics of battlefield/combat)
War Strategies (over all views on major strategies that have view on combats as a whole (Leading, execution of orders, Command chain models).
Crafting Guides
Skill Guides
Item related Guides
ext.
Any published material needs to be written in somewhat coherent English. As you might notice even this kind of half ass English is ok so this limitation is not too high. Try also maintain somewhat professional sense in your writing to add more experience value to readers.


Can I correction or make better guide on some existing subject?

Here you have 2 choices. If you find out there is already guide on subject that you would like to write about you can write additions for that existing guide or if you have much to add on many sections you can make extended version of original material and that will replace it. If you want make addition to guide your name will be placed under writers name in section "Added researchers".

Edit* University got first student yesterday, his name is Sarin strdr, congrats for being first registered student :)

-How Command School works-

What is this school about?
Our guild Brawdolieath provides services of Command school for every Admeri Dominion alliance guild (we don't want to train enemy side right?). Idea behind this school is to give training in leadership but also interesting experience. In our own guild studentship is granted to those with rank requiring leadership training. For other guilds there is application process for those who would like to join in command school or contribute to it. All help is greatly appreciated and will be noted in guild university degree standings.

So all nice and dandy but why to join up? Joining in command school doesn't mean joining in guild. When arriving in Command school there will be forum section that you can use as reference read. Studies will also include some lecture in form or other. When you feel that you are ready to take exam there will be role-play kind of exam. After passing the exam you will graduate command school as a trained leader.

How to apply for command school if I'm not in Brawdolieath?

Fear not, you shall have chance to join anyways. Here are step by step intro on how applying works.

1. Ask your guild leader to submit application letter for your guild (he/she might want to add few other names too and it is practical to have 1 list of names instead of tons of applications). This way leader will also know what is freking going on. Leader may join too. Application letter will be send to grand advisor trough pm at our guild website.

2. After getting the letter we will reply with further introductions and bill for studentship fee. This fee is paid to our guild in game. (Fee will be small and just formal role-play element). In case of allies fee is halved or dropped entirely.

3. After when command school fee is paid everyone on the list can register in our guild website for command school. You can apply for it even before but those applications will be passed only after formalities are done. (So we actually know that guild leader knows what is going on.)

4. Congrats, you are hereby student of command school. There will be information on lectures and other command school related role-play timetable later on. You can access to command school archive in our guild website and read study materials provided by university.

5. Optional role-play choice: You can pm grand advisor at forum for command school exam. This exam will be held at convenient time. After the exam you will be graded and if passed (joke everyone pass if even trying, if you waste staff time you will fail as a punishment :3!!).

Foot notes

-In some cases depending on given missions, access to command school might be granted regardless of rank or guild. This decision is given by guild leader or grand advisor and cannot be applied to.

-If you want to help build up this school you can join up at our guild university. For university read university description. If you need more information PM me.

Great idea, and I have couple of questions and random thoughts.

a) I believe we are allowed to publish stories based on our experience exploring the world as "travel guide" or mini stories with some humour. Yes?


b) Why it is required for someone to be member of a guild to apply for the command roles?

A) Yes this is allowed and it would be nice to have such stories :D We also have some humor related study called " On our right to eat mushrooms in ESO". You can check that out at off topic as well. There is still viewing problems with forum we are in "beta phase" so it will be open to everyone later. You can send the texts you want to be published to grand advisor (me) or head master of university (currently vaccant).

B)If you are not member of any guild that is ok, but most are so the question of allegiance comes in question + it is more convenient that there is small group added in certain time than just random 1 notices. This also makes guild leaders easy to know who of their members have had access to command school and stuff like that. If you have been guild leader ever you will know its vitally important to know these things. If person in question would be pure loner, well then he could join regardless but we need verify that somehow because we don't want extra hassle in guild politics. Better to keep things organized and clear for both sides.

Thanks for questions, will make this topic more full as a whole, never really can think all the sides of problems that might occur :)

Regarding the command and guild question and extra security.

I understand your concerns, and I would be happy if I find an AD Khajiit only, guild also. Already in the process thinking making one.

However, not many "new" players are doctrined to the Alliance/Realm "pride". So a big part of the playerbase, are going to have alts in EP & DC also, or jump there when they hit level 50. What then? Kick them?

And that from someone like me, who's planning to play only AD for the years to come, as played Hibernian only for 10 years on DAOC (both live and Uthgard). And not for a single moment thought to play on the other realms, havign a big fallout with my ex wife when she proposed to play Albion for a change back in 2006.

Well first things first :D There actually is good khajiit only guild around. It is leaded by my friend Qa Dar, more info at ->

http://www.tesof.com/topic-va-khaj-dar

On the doctrine of AD alliance only, we can never be 100% certain that people only play at AD side. So what we are left with is to at least favor AD side and any minute someone needs to be on AD side is minute won :P And basically if someone is willing to go that far to get inside command school he is worth it even if alliance enemy if you ask me. No system can be 100% secure on matters on internet. We won't be tracing your ip and doing any ilegal activity with the alliance registers, so don't worry about it :3

Hi,

First of all a VERY BIG THANK YOU :D for pointing me to the right direction for the guild. I owe you :)

Second, if the system is the same in release as in beta right now, (account based) for anyone that is in your friend list, or guild list, can see their online alt char at any moment. So not that difficult to spot someone playing on another Alliance, where they actually are, and the name/class/race of the alt also.

But again thank you :)

Update on University

So far we have been accepted as a alliance service at Southern Brotherhood alliance. We have gained few first students and so far there has been 10 produced studies on matters from strategy to tactics and philosophy. Also MacInTrash has gained the first Candidate degree at university.
