    OOC Stuff:

    Folk of Tel'ruin [FoTR] is a RP guild whose origins are from the Europa Shard. While our rules are not as strict as CoRE on Europa we do still have a set series of guidlines which can be found below:

    Code of Conduct

    - Stay in character whenever role-playing or in a role play area. Keep OOC talk to party/guildchat.

    - Guild tags must be visible at all times.

    - No OOC profanity or insulting of other players.

    - If there is any complaint, grievance, or other issue with a player then speak to a senior member of [FoTR].

    - Only steal from YELLOW bags or a max of 500 gold/Bandies. Other exceptions apply when the item is a IC Quest item. Such items are normally named.

    - Senior Members of the Guild have the option to boot anyone within the guild for not following these guidelines or in the majority view are causing grief to other players. We are a friendly guild whom wishes to expand the community, not destroy it.

    Rules of Engagement – PVP specific rules

    - If knocked unconscious or killed, do not continue to fight or otherwise take part in any ongoing battles (eg healing others) for 10 minutes, during which time a deathrobe must be worn.* RPing injured (walking and talking) is permitted.

    - Do not force players to PvP, always give alternative options (running away, being taken prisoner, etc). In all cases, ensure players are not AFK or disconnected before attacking.

    If you wish to join the Guild then we will welcome you with open arms! However that being said and as noted above we are community minded. We will often run various community events (House Drops, Auctions etc) and becuase of this we sometimes ask for some help. This could be as liitle as a couple of items or up to helping organise and promote our events. If this is for you then please by all means speak to a member of the Guild whom will point you towards a senior member. All you need to join is have a character with a sensible name (A character called LEETzor isnt acceptable lol) have a small write up about your character and have an idea what direction you'ld like your character to go. If you have never RP'd before (Roleplayed) thats fine also! We will encourage you to learn and help you in anyway we can!

    So, what you waiting for?
