Nephandi - Mission and Purpose

Mission Statement
Our objective is to unite an aspiring community and establish superior collaboration with one another through maturity, integrity, and honor.

Meaning and Importance
Our guild mission statement nests very closely to our ideals for a mature gaming community. With the sense of community we are striving to develop, our challenge arises in recruiting into the culture. Our commitment to developing an outstanding community is a great opportunity for many players to experience gaming in an unparalleled group.

Guild Purpose
Nephandi exists to complete its mission statement, however, that is merely a general front to declare our existence. We are here because of the potential of mutual benefits between the players and the guild. There are many skilled players with the focus and determination we seek; whose commitment to performance and behavior make them very valuable teammates in the gaming environments. Within the games we occupy, there are many guilds who have a small handful of players, but may lack the discipline and dedication to make it a premiere guild. This is where we come in.

A balance between leadership and team commitment can often be difficult. Especially within gaming environments, many leaders will not be as disciplined as, say, managers in a corporation. While we are not trying to develop a stiff white-collar environment, we do understand the importance of solid leaders. Likewise, the skills of the general populous also have substantial potential that we will use. Through our policies, your potential is limited merely by your own ambition.

It is the responsibility of every guild member to behave with utmost maturity and courtesy towards all fellow gamers. The governing rules are what a mature society should come to expect of a person in terms of behaving in a civilized manner. At all times a player wearing the tags and title of is representing the guild. While you are a representation of our image, you will therefore abide by our behavior guidelines and continually give us a reason to be proud to have you in the guild. Courtesy is required treatment for friend and foe. Every action puts the guild's integrity on the line: bad news travels swifter and farther than good news, so be mindful of your actions and words.

While you are a member of our community, you will show respect and loyalty towards its leaders. Not everyone has to agree with all the decisions of the leaders, but you will respect them. All leaders within the guild are hand-picked for their qualities they've expressed and their leadership potential. They have earned their position and they are to command the respect of those who follow them. Should an issue ever arise with leadership, we have an open-door policy that works up the ranks to ensure you can talk to someone who can help you. Always try to talk to the person you have the issue with first: they will be glad you showed them that amount of respect to not talk to someone else before them. The same shall apply for issues with other members: respect is a universal trait for all members and that trait is to be maintained at all times.

Interpretation of the rules at any given time fall upon the acting leadership. It is not necessary to list specific rules on behavior: if it could be unacceptable, it's not worth risking. It is also the player's responsibility to report any action that may be against our policy. Not letting an officer know will allow the actions to continue, potentially scarring the reputation of the guild. Failure to communicate could result in disciplinary actions. We can have no hope of fixing a problem, or assisting a user with his or her situation if no one reports it.

The TL;DR version:

Be mature. If you're caught spamming trade chat, being unfair about loot in a pug, etc. You'll be warned and/or kicked. We won't tolerate it. Using the terms "fag", "gay", etc. is to be left for the pre-teens. Cursing is one thing (and is expected at times) but be mindful of who else is on vent or in chat. If you're likely to offend someone... then just keep it to yourself.
