Mystical Awakening (founded in December 2002) is an international English speaking MMO gaming community striving to build up a long-lasting reputation for being skilled and well regarded PvP’ers by the wider MMO community. We will achieve this by recruiting committed, mature members; embarking on smack-free and constructive communications; ensure our structures are focused on the players; organising well managed events; and carefully choosing allies and enemies in all games we play. Our goals are ultimately driven by the desire to engage in PvP or RvR, but we aim to offer a "full service” in our games, and utilise every aspect of game play to support our combat goals. In each game MMO we play, the guild is typically subdivided in to three areas, or Spheres: Battle (PvP and PvE); Social (Diplomacy and guild members) and Crafting (Logistics, crafters). Each Sphere is overseen by guild officers who are responsible for ensuring members are reaching their potential, having fun and realising the importance of their contribution to guild life. Mystical Awakening Guild Charter Our guild members strive at all times to * Participate in organised guild activity and create their own groups, rather than follow the path of a loner * Maintain a long-term outlook, especially in developing grudges toward our enemies * Avoid griefing, cheating, feeding trolls or engaging fools in smack talk * Deal with real life first. It interferes. * Maintain a sense of humour alongside a gamers’ serious, committed nature * Ensure their conduct reflects maturity and intelligence of their guild whenever possible * Have fun and enjoy the games lucky enough to host our guild and move on when it’s time * Remain an active community member, move with or rejoin us when new games are announced * Avoid drama. It does not enhance the quality of any game, not even WoW * Understand that perfection doesn't exist and when room for improvement is identified, or criticism raised, communicate it. The guild will find at its disposal a varying degree of resources through the years, but core to its activity will be * A continuous and solid representation of the Mystical Awakening name. Never merging, falling back or allowing its good name to be eroded through ignorance or design * A Guild Council to assist in maintaining stability across all our games, and to provide GMs in new games * Officers ensuring successful operations in one of three spheres: Battle, Social and Crafting * Opportunity for all to input to the day-to-day activity and longer term direction of the guild, regardless of member’s guild rank * A guild size that is most relevant to the requirements of the game, be it small and nimble or large and powerful, though never of the size that detracts from the individual skill required to overcome our enemies * A professional voice communications service for all our games, and when required, our alliances * A website located at www.mystical-awakening.net to act as a home for all our members through the years * Opportunity for RL talents to be put to use to support the development of the guild and the wider community.
