New email

There is a new email address for you all to contact me via email, as Liadon has not given me the user name and password of the email address she had set up for this purpose. So if you have been sending emails to that address and wonder why you have not gotten a respounce it is not that I am ignoring you, I just simply can't check the account. The new email address to contact me will be posted in the Guild message of the day for the next two days or so.

as you all know

As everyone by now is aware Bourne, Lusty and I are the guild leaders now. I am pleased to see that we have begun to really become a closer guild. Also we have started to run many of the instances as a guild and will continue to expand that as the guild grows and becomes more powerful. The three of us are working together to build a strong cohesion within the guild if you have any issues please don't be afriad to come to one of us. We are working on a system to rename the ranks within the guild and possibly some sort of orginized way to determine who gets what rank when. If you have any suggestions for this please reply to this post with that suggestion.

Secret Agent Man!

As Lusty, Bourne, Sil, et al, found out the other day, I've been conducting some undercover surveillance with a Horde alt. Yes, that's right, you've got a man on the inside. So if you need information on a Horde location with little ovation I can provide the summation of ...*OW!*...okay, you get the point.

BTW, Camp Taurajo? Just begging to be smacked down...anyone for some cow tipping?

Guild Finances

For those of you who haven't had this conversation with me, here is the way our guild finances work:

There is and never will be a guild bank. We will never have dues. I believe such a practice can breed discontent and mistrust. My goal to have all professions cooperate in order to corner the markets in the AH is certainly for our benefit, but those who participate should be able to keep all their profits. If a leatherworker does well, he is absolutely free to help lower level guildies who have a harder time raising gold. He's free, but not obligated. I will always encourage cooperation but never require or enforce it.

On a side note, there are quite a few members I'm not familiar with. I have temporarily closed all recruiting except in special circumstances in order to have time to get to know each new member. Other guilds may be different, but I personally feel I cannot lead very effectively if I don't know each of you. As always, this is open for discussion. Talk to me any time if you have questions, concerns, or think something would work better if done differently.

I was going to wait to post the officer pics until Josh had the official site up and I received all pics to post on the profiles page, but Lusty has been whining about the delay. I might post a few here to keep him quiet... I'm not sure.

Aolwyn & Shardik Own Blackfathom

...And we mean that in a very legal and binding sense...we close escrow on Monday.

In what is sure to go down in the annals of yada-yada, Aolwyn & I (and Ao's faithful sidekick) laid waste to BFD in a two-person (and one bear) romp, that was really quite entertaining. Side by side, we trounced all comers, including a skin-of-the-teeth victory against Aku'mai.

In all honesty, that was some fun &*$@ (stupid profanity filter...oh, wait). I can't wait to go dungeon diving again with Ao, or with any of my guildmates.

So what challenges would you like to take on with your guild? Got an instance you wanna crack? Or a dragon to slay?

Guild Meeting

There will be a guild meeting Sunday, April 2 at 8:30pm mountain time. If you are unable to attend, please read the agenda and send me a note ahead of time with any questions or concerns. The agenda is:

  • New website: timeline, contents, profiles and email
  • TS server for Uncorrupted Power
  • New ranks and definitions, including quests for rank
  • Cooperation and trust
  • Upcoming schedules for dungeon runs and eventually raids
  • Any other concerns mentioned by members

I hope to see you all there.

Concerning Recent Events

Any member of Uncorrupted Power with the rank of Prince or higher who leaves the guild and wants to be reinvited needs to speak with me first.

It is my desire to know each member of the guild. In the next week or two, I will be spending some time in individual conversations with each of you. Recruiting will be closed until I am familiar with every one of you. A close knit group is beneficial in a guild because we know we can trust each other in dungeons and raids. Nobody will leave someone else to die or try to roll need on all the good items.

Drama and politics are not welcome in the guild. Please take it to a whisper. If you need further resolution, feel free to bring it to my attention.

We will be establishing a system for members to earn rank through quests. These quests will be designed to increase and prove the player's abilities. I will have two officers take charge of this.

I will keep everyone updated on the progress of our new website and on our soon to come TS server. Please be patient as Josh informs me that designing a website takes time.
