Ahoy fellow crew members! As most of ye may have heard, the RP guilds on Catskills are working on a big scheme: An alliance scheme called Order versus Chaos. The goal is to improve guild interaction and guild wars, make participation in war scenarios easier for new guilds (without the hassle of dozens of guild highlightings), and to improve communication through a common alliance chat. The current Rules of Engagement apply, of course. This means, no looting, no battles without a context, no griefing, etc. For clarification, this scheme is a technical guild relationship consisting of two more or less hostile groups ("alliances"). All guilds who want to join this scheme (and we hope that all RP guilds on Catskills will) have to choose whether they want to join the "Order" alliance or the "Chaos" alliance. The two alliances will have declared war on each other. All guilds who are member of the one alliance will automatically have guild war status (orange highlighting) with the guilds of the other alliance. All guilds who are member of the same alliance will have friendly status (green highlighting) among each other, but they still can attack each other in Trammel (as if they were in the same guild). All guilds of the same alliance,will have a common alliance chat (similar to guild chat, but in different color). In order to join an alliance, a guild has to cancel all their current guild wars. War declarations to outside guilds (yes, this is possible too) must be handled by the alliance leaders. (Alliance leaders are two guilds named "Order [OvC]" and "Chaos [OvC]" that were specifically made for this scheme.) Currently, there are about 10 RP guilds who are willing to participate in one way or the other. However, the following guilds have declared that they will NOT join the alliance technically, because they don't want to lose their warlists (due to sentimental reasons or whatever): - Purple Guardians of HONOR - Freehold of Roses - Village of Aegis - Rangers of the Heart I.e. the respective alliance leader must declare war on them manually, and they cannot participate in alliance guild chat, and they will highlight orange to both sides of the alliance. To my knowledge, no guild has yet joined the alliance (what are they waiting for?). My question: Should the United Pirates cancel all their current guild wars and join the alliance? Or should we wait like the rest of the guilds and take no action? Or should we be an out-of-system guild like the four sissy-landlubber-groups mentioned above? YOU DECIDE! ONLY ONE VOTE PER PLAYER!
