Ashenguard-Lead through Ideas, Creativity, and by One Another [Democratic-No "GM"][Worldwide]

edited November 2017 in European Guilds <this sets the mood and where I draw my inspiration for the rest of my post.)

Hello, World! 

I would like to extend my invitation to you all to try us out and see who we are. Together we have come about our name "Ashenguard" and our very own lore. 

If you have something in mind that you want to focus on, I believe and trust that~ No matter your focus, playstyle, or your reason for playing this game~ You will help create that spot to branch out into other like minded people. I want this to be a home~ sort of sanctuary to those people who want to create memories and happiness. . . No matter how corny that sounds :) 

I would love to work with someone who loves to craft/PVP/PvE/RP etc. . . Because not only are you doing what you love to do but at the very same time, you help all of us with your knowledge of your play style and focus and benefit just as much from the others. We are leaderless, but not short on those who lead with different ideas this way we ensure we all get heard! It's a beautiful thing, and I believe that is part of our core purpose. What we are creating, is something special and I hope it's self-evident.

 ***Note*** Also know that because in this game everything affects everything; we do not wish to be an exclusive guild that only does X or Y. Allow for players to do what they want to do. To me, it makes no sense only to do X knowing that I could be missing out on the rest of the game. Why limit yourself? There are four pillars, and each of those must be addressed in this guild.*** 

What you get out of it here . . . is measured by the investment with one another. 

The ultimate goal is to take the concept of a guild back to when we were all just a member of a larger community of players who enjoyed to be around one another~ and help one another. 

If these ideas resonate with you fellow companion . . . Then I have only one question. . . Shall we Unite? 

Sometimes you can catch us on this stream :)

How Do We Operate?

We are not traditional. We aim to be a Truly United Guild to operate on its own without any sort of actual leadership that cannot dictate our fates. We are our own person after all. We do not practice thinking or making decisions as a group in a way that discourages creativity or individual responsibility. That's a dangerous trap to fall into. Instead, we reason, critical thinking, and progress!

We have created a guild that does not need any single individual to run any part of it because we all put our own part into it. The responsibility of where we head are shared evenly through all of us. Confused? Give us a glance :)

I love to see "disagreements", I love to see us overcoming the obstacle through reasoning, we think about the problem and different ways to look at it from all angles, and through this, we bond ever stronger with each other. 

We all discuss it, we all look at it from all points of view.

How we operate and gets things done is up to each and every single person in this guild. There is this spark, sort of fire that burns deeply, it will not be so easily put out. 

To our guys in the guild, I am humbled to be a part of it all :)

What We Do As A Guild:

Everything we do as a guild from taking everyone's opinion on the matter (pre-voting) to the actual (election-days) voting proves why we do it. It is important to all of us, that we give ourselves enough time for everyone to be able to cast a vote and know exactly why they are voting.

Currently in Development(hot topics)

Guild coin

(one side done already)

Guild seal/emblem

(Voting/discussions might be needed)

Guild lore

(almost done already)

Individual lore

(up to the players to create they're own lore based off the guild lore)

Guidelines and ruleset(rough "sketches" are starting to surface to encourage creativity and individual responsibility) 

Guild Server with Guild Halls

(A guild server will be up and running and will be creating a tavern, Halls, using unreal engine with blueprints and scripts)

Individual 3 Dimensional Characters

(A few personalized characters have been 3D rendered already, we think it might be part of a "mega" guild banner)

Guild Colors

(Always up for the vote to show what we represent and the ideas and principles that guide us all)

    UPDATE: Guild web page:

     What kind of guild are you all?

    "We are like a symphony of ideas and personalities." 

    We are sort of unique, in the sense that we're all sitting in sort of a really big "round table" so to speak. I am no more a founder/leader than the next person. We want everyone to have their say and know that it means just as much as anyone else.

    Decisions here are not made alone; or by any one individual. We all have a part to play. Each choice that affects each other is critically thought out. I hope what we stand for is self-evident. 

    It's one thing to write it out all on paper.

    It is unfathomable, to see the guild to have evolved to operate dynamically tailored to the subject at hand and to work without one said, "leader" as a position to be held, but lead instead by ideas and progress.

    It shows me that the people here really do want to make this work and shows how we care for one another. I believe it's that "passion" at our core that allows us to interpret ideas differently. It is how we progress through reason, to achieve that "feels right" feeling because that part of yourself cannot put it into words and the best we can say to describe it is- "it feels right."

    Thank you for taking the time to read through  

    NA or EU region? Size aim?

    I am in NA, But well I do not wish to that to limit the player scope. In this game I want the guild to be one if that makes sense. I just came from overseas (Europe) but my best friend plays from over there (EU). With the entirely separate servers IDK how that will play out.

    Everything is up for discussion. At the moment we are just about evenly split between the two its so awesome to be able to listen in to people who have different points of view. 

    I would also include there are four pillars in this game. Each of those has to be addressed to become a balanced set of players.

    Are you a tight group?

    Also, the reason I wish to organize before alpha comes out is because I want to know one another, therefore, recruitment is more focused on quality players rather than just getting everyone and anyone. I think that’s important. I wouldn’t mind a small but active group at all. If this game is to change the genre then why keep the same guild structures from previous games?

    I’ll leave an inspiring video and modified speech ????

    I feel this is relevant how Ashes of Creation will play out, so I’ll leave you all with this speech with some modifications to create some play along immersion( helps add to the mood I’m in :))

    Credits to Charlie Chaplin in his great dictator speech(can’t get links/code to work so sorry):

    “I’m sorry, but I don’t want to be an Emperor, that’s not my business.
    I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone.
    I should like to help everyone if possible, Elf, Orc, Human, Drawf.
    We all want to help one another; We people are like that.
    We want to live by each other’s happiness, not by each other’s misery.
    We don’t want to hate and despise one another.
    In this world there is room for everyone and the good world is rich and can provide for everyone.
    The way of life can be free and beautiful.
    But we have lost the way.

    Greed has poisoned peoples souls, has barricaded the world with hate;
    has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed.

    We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in:
    machinery that gives abundance has left us in want.
    Our knowledge has made us cynical,
    our cleverness hard and unkind.
    We think too much and feel too little:
    More than machinery we need humanity;
    More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness.

    Without these qualities, life will be violent, and all will be lost.

    The MMORPGs and the discord have brought us closer together.
    The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in people, cries out for universal brotherhood for the unity of us all.
    Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world, millions of despairing men, women and little children, victims of a system that makes others torture and imprison innocent people.
    To those who can hear me, I say “Do not despair.”

    The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed, the bitterness of others who fear the way of our progress:
    the hate of others will pass, and dictators die and the power they took from the people, will return to the people and so long as players die liberty will never perish . . .

    Soldiers: don’t give yourselves to brutes, those who despise you, enslave you, who regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to think or what to feel, who drill you, diet you, treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder.

    Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural beings, machine players, with machine minds and machine hearts.
    You are not machines. You are not cattle. You are people.
    You have the love of humanity in your hearts.
    You don’t hate, only the unloved hate.
    The unloved and the unnatural.
    Soldiers: don’t fight for slavery, fight for liberty.

    In the seventeenth chapter of Saint Luke it is written:
    – “The kingdom of God is within man”
    Not one man, nor a group of men, but in all men; in you.

    You the people have the power, the power to create machines, the power to create happiness. You the people have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure.
    Then in the name of democracy let us use that power. Let us all unite!
    Let us fight for a new world, a decent world that will give players a chance to work, that will give youth a future and old age a security.
    By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power, but they lie.
    They do not fulfill that promise, they never will.
    Dictators free themselves, but they enslave the people.
    Now let us fight to fulfill that promise.
    Let us fight to free the world, to do away with national barriers, to do away with greed, with hate and intolerance.
    Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all our happiness.

    Soldiers! In the name of democracy: Let us all unite!”

    I wish you all the luck in your recruitment process!

    We share a lot of similarities, if your guild search doesnt bare the harvest your seeking, I would like to offer you an alternative!

    Heres our guild page:

    We had a guild thread posted but the forums have saw fit to eat it! lol

    Anywhoo, again best of luck! :)

    @Gemiichan Frist off, thank you for your support and hand for those just in case situations! I am happy different people have similar ideas and concepts I am trying to make known. I am happy my walls of text have not driven people away too much!

    Oh my goodness! I'm sure this page has been eaten about 5 times by now. . . so I had to rewrite everything over and over again otherwise it would have contained different people's voices, support, and questions.

    I did not wish to keep bumping my own page with a new post but each time I would try to use html code~ even too bold something or link something it would just disappear! Oh~ the nightmare it was to get the signature going xD The struggles with the forum page is all too real!

    I would love to sincerely wish to you the best of luck as well! :) Thanks for stopping by!

  • tkey530tkey530 Member
    I shall we, we have a great bunch of people signed up so far. We all really like where the game is headed. Our discord is starting to take shape, website is eventually taking shape. Go ahead and check us out in discord.
  • ValenoresValenores Member, Alpha 0 Participant alpha-0-rank
    Because I do not wish my post to be eaten by the forum monster-Ill post this here:

    Each player is different and our guild signature should be made of each individual's idea and become manifestation into an image depending on playstyle, focus and interest :) I happily invite you all to do just as I've done.

    @Gelmir Thank you! I truly wish you the best of luck as well! I am so hyped!

  • LuckyBeesLuckyBees Member
    I hope this goes through.

    Sounds interesting I'll go back to lurking and keeping an eye :)
  • FreakzFreakz Member
    The guild sounds interesting. You said that you, yourself are based in NA. Are you planning on branching to EU with a sister guild or are there any plans towards EU at all? :)
  • ValenoresValenores Member, Alpha 0 Participant alpha-0-rank
    @Freakz I understand your concerns and sorry for the delayed answer (was sleeping lol).

    One thing is for certain: I do not know where the guild will head in the future, I am not deciding on it; Each and every single person is. I find that to be a beautiful thing.

    Well the way I look at it, is there is still two years to form. We're still ways away from the first alpha being released. I had the idea brought up on our discord that if we end up getting too big we might as well branch into NA and EU to help keep the integrity of the ideas the guild was founded on true. Personally, I do not have a problem with it, but my opinion is as good as the next persons.

    What determines if we've got too big, one might wonder? That depends on each person in this guild to decide as a group. However, it really is too early in the game and I can't speak for all of us. That's something that we seem to come to a common consensus about: "it's still early."

  • ValenoresValenores Member, Alpha 0 Participant alpha-0-rank
    @LuckyBees If you have any questions, well its open season :) fire away!

    Hello and welcome! :D We currently have 11 of us and we mostly just communicate via the discord channel but that does not mean we will not play a game together at some point ^^ Feel free to join in on our discord (even if you just want to join as a guest for now and decide later!)
    Our guild will be a great opportunity if you want to help sculpt the guild for the future! We want everyone to feel part of a family! We will grow together!

    @Dahlia Hello! Glad you were not scared away by my walls of text! It's hard for me to explain something I feel so passionate about in such short sentences!

    Just as @Diura has said before me :) I might also add in here; you could very well decide. That is our purpose after all; I really hold true to these values and hope to project that through my words.

    At the moment it has not been brought up if we should play another MMO together. I'm totally down for it, but that's just me and I can only speak for myself after all.

    Feel free to stop by and say Hello :)

  • DerstDerst Member
    Hey there, saw your post and I'm pretty interested!

    You may not can answer this, with it being so early in forming, but are the plans to go on a NA server and play at prime hours there, or stick to EU with your friend? I only ask because the days of me staying up till 3 a.m. are gone, damn adult jobs lol!
  • ValenoresValenores Member, Alpha 0 Participant alpha-0-rank
    @Derst Hello! Welcome! You do not fear the walls of text!

    I understand, currently, we are unsure also we might even get big enough where we might have to split into two. You're right I cannot answer it cause the waves of the future are ever constantly shifting.

    But we're currently almost split in half between the two with our full group so you won't be alone if you're EU in here.

    (P.S. Love the Sunbro pic! Praise the Sun!)

  • DerstDerst Member
    Ahhh the wall of text, if only I could be so grossly incandescent.
    Quotes aside, awesome!
    Well I'm a fan of yalls mission statement, so I'm in if y'all will have me!

    Praise the sun!
  • ValenoresValenores Member, Alpha 0 Participant alpha-0-rank
    @Derst Thank you!

    We would love to have you with us :) Welcome!

    here is our website a work in progress to say the least and our Discordas well :)

    Hope to meet you soon!

  • ValenoresValenores Member, Alpha 0 Participant alpha-0-rank
    @Derst Thank you for your kind words!

    We would love to have you! Here is the link to our web page, a work and progress to say the least but also Ashenguard is mostly a placeholder and has yet to be voted on as a guild name.

    Here is our discord:

  • LuckyBeesLuckyBees Member
    What age group are you guys generally?

    If you don't mind me asking.
  • PeroinPeroin Member ✭✭
    Sorry misunderstood the question. Well 22 and up.


  • ValenoresValenores Member, Alpha 0 Participant alpha-0-rank
    @luckybees An unintended consequence due to my walls of text and the concepts put forward, it acts like a filter and typically people who are 22 and up have joined thus far.

  • DiuraDiura Moderator mod
    We are sitting with 21 members so far :3 Growing so fast! I love our guild already aha ❤️❤️

  • ValenoresValenores Member, Alpha 0 Participant alpha-0-rank
