Shadow of Apophis is formerly known as PirateLords. We still have the same approach to gaming, the majority of the member-base, a PirateLords founder, and all but one of the entire active leadership. Shadow of Apophis has been part of many games, both individually and as PirateLords. SWTOR will be our first venture under the new name, but the majority of us have played together.
As a guild, we move through games at our own pace, and do not let others dictate how and when we get things done. We have players that rush to max level, and we have players who take their time.
We are a tight-knit guild. The term â€œtight-knitâ€ is often thrown around hap-hazardly by leaders to describe any guild or entity that isnâ€™t a zerg or large in number. With Apophis, the term is accurately applied. We prefer a guild atmosphere where members know and appreciate each other, and members are not just a number, but a name. Coinciding with this is our moniker of â€œdo more with lessâ€. We donâ€™t just want to throw numbers at an objective or problem, we want to take what we have and apply ourselves through knowledge and ability in order to complete the task at hand. From this, and dealing with challenges and adversity, comes a legitimate and real sense of accomplishment and camaraderie.
We donâ€™t have many rules, but we do have to maintain some standards and discipline. Our first rule is to have fun. Gaming is what brought us together, after all. We DO NOT have rules against swearing - as we are an often crude and lewd lot. Because of our crude behavior, â€œtell it like it isâ€ attitude, and the playful banter and verbal jabs we exchange amongst ourselves, itâ€™s strongly recommended that you have thick skin. If you get offended easily, you will not last. We require the use of ventrilo when actively playing a game with the guild. We also recommend coming around ventrilo even when not actively playing a game with the guild. Communication is a cornerstone of guild, both in enabling how we operate in-game, and building friendships that extend both into games and in life. Lastly, treat people with respect. Respect for your fellow guild-mates is vital to the success and atmosphere of the guild.
Drive, dedication, and loyalty are three of the most important qualities our members exhibit. Members of SoA are driven, striving to better themselves and the guild as a whole through merit and deed. Dedication is shown through our membersâ€™ commitment to the goals and sustainment of the guild. Loyalty is part of the foundation that makes SoA work. Without loyalty, a guild is just a group of strangers with a rotating door. Our members are protective of one another, helping fellow members when needed, and supporting each other from start to finish.
Most of us reside in the US and Canada, ranging from Pacific to Eastern time zones. Though our times are always based off Central, we're open to players from all over. We tend to have a few Apophis members on for most hours of the day and night.
