[=1.35em]What is The Army of Light?
The Army of Light (AL) is a pre-launch guild for the upcoming Bioware title, Star Wars: The Old Republic (SW:TOR). It has a medium to heavy Role-play (RP) atmosphere and will focus on both Player-vs.-Environment (PvE) and Player-vs.Player (PvP) in-game. The AL is open to all regardless of race, origin, belief, culture, religion, political affiliation, age, time zone, country, local area, gender, or experience. However, a strict dedication to the Republic and the guild are required for membership. Our host server in-game will not be selected until the possible servers are listed by Bioware.
[/][=1.35em]How was the Army of Light Founded?
The foundation began to fall into place in late January of 2010. Dissatisfied with poor leadership and environments lacking in both maturity and dedication, Master Jephos Mispir struck out to see where the Force would lead him. He began to understand the fundamental flaw within the Republic â€“ the allowance and even welcoming of Imperials and practitioners of the Dark Side. Therefore, he began to recruit others to the cause - to assist him in creating a new Republic stronghold, free of the corruption and impurities that plagued so many others. Together they laid out the framework for what would ultimately become the guild, and shortly thereafter The Army of Light was officially established in February of 2010.[/]
[=1.35em]What does the Army of Light Offer?
The guild provides a sanctuary and a home for over 200 citizens of the Republic. Membership makes one a part of one the oldest, most established, and highly respected organizations in the entire SW:TOR community. The popularity of the AL Recruitment Thread on SW:TORâ€™s official website is almost unrivaled. In addition to the large support network of experienced administrators and Flag Officers that is available 24/7, the AL is hosted on a professionally purchased and maintained web domain that features full chat rooms, deluxe forums, and an interactive role-playing environment.[/]
[=1.35em]What other Features does the Army of Light Provide?
The AL maintains its privately owned Ventrilo client for voice communication, its own Jedi Academy (JA) server, its own Wikia listings, and periodically releases member-created guild Podcasts, Newsletters, and recruitment videos. The guild also maintains presences on other popular massive multiplayer media such as Star Wars: Empire at War (EW), Star Wars: Galaxies (SWG), World of Warcraft (WoW), and Lord of the Rings Online (LOTRO). In addition, the AL Social Council (ALSC) coordinates social activities for members and allies designed to provide an enjoyable, stress-relieving, community-building atmosphere. These include game, trivia, and movie nights, chat room â€œDJsâ€, role-playing scenarios and story lines, and contests.[/][=1.35em]What does it mean that the Army of Light is a â€œRole-playâ€ Guild?
This means that we choose to act as our in-game personas more than we choose to act as individuals sitting at keyboards. The reason is so that we can more fully immerse ourselves in the Star Wars universe and better enjoy our time spent here by â€œliving the fantasyâ€ as opposed to simply playing a computer game. This philosophy affects everything from our behavior and language when interacting with one another to our titles and the guild chain of command. Besides, whoâ€™s never dreamt of being a lightsaber-wielding Jedi, an indomitable Trooper, or a dashing Smuggler?[/]
[ [=impact]What Type of Person is the Army of Light Seeking to Recruit?
The Army of Light is seeking those who are dedicated, mature, and willing to exclusively support the Galactic Republic and the guild. We do not wish to limit potential recruits before the actual application process is complete, there is a major requirement that must be met: maturity. This is a defining characteristics that all AL members must possess as immaturity is not tolerated. The Army of Light is an equal opportunity guild. We do not discriminate based on:
~ Belief | Religion
~ Political Affiliation
~ Time Zone | Country | Local Area
~ Age (16+ preferred)
[align=right]Are There any Other Requirements for Membership?
Members are to be of the highest personal character. A deep dedication to continuous learning, integrity, maturity, humility, and loyalty is mandatory for membership. No member may belong to any other guild while a member of The Army of Light. We wish to have only the finest gentlemen and ladies who embody respect and a sincere willingness to role-play as forthright and upstanding defenders of the Galactic Republic. We believe hard work, contributions to the guild and the greater good, maturity, selflessness, and activity should be rewarded. We strive to eliminate injustice, tyranny, evil and threats to our peace, security, virtue, and way of life.
