Wolfpack was born over 30 years ago when a group of kids around the Dallas, TX area came together while playing live-action role-playing games like Amtgard and the SCA, and then began spending a great deal of time together outside the normal weekend events. We've been friends ever since.
As time passed, we graduated from High School and separated to pursue our individual lives: college, career, family. However, we never stopped keeping in touch, and made a point to come together at every opportunity. Today, the majority of us are back in the Dallas area and get together regularly for gaming sessions, holiday celebrations, and taking vacations together.
Our group has existed longer than the Internet (as people know it today). As online gaming started to become a thing, a few of us jumped in head-first playing MUDS and the like. Our first real online game, which only a couple of us bothered to try out, was Meridian '59. It wasn't until Asheron's Call and Ultima Online that we started developing a real online presence.
Our latest foray together was SWTOR (Star Wars: The Old Republic). Until it released, we hadn't really taken outsiders seriously. That is to say, others were welcome to join our online Guild, but they were never really a part of us. SWTOR changed all of that. June 2017 marked the 5th annual Wolfpack get-together, this time held in Florida. Next year is still up in the air.
ASHES OF CREATION
Our goal in Ashes of Creation will be the same as it is in everything we do together: have an excellent time! We have a reputation for being a no-nonsense, absolutely zero Drama Guild. The vast majority of our members are gown adults with strong heads on their shoulders, real careers (some of us retired), and are well-educated. As such, we tend to recruit the same. None of us have time for Soap Opera antics.
This also means that we fully understand the needs, and pressure, of real life. We never ask that our members put real-life on hold just to make a Guild Event happen. Play on your own timetable, and at your own pace, doing whatever it is you like to do.
We make absolutely no demands on playstyle; if you don't like arena-combat, or Crafting, or working on team mechanics to take down the hardest Raids, then don't participate in those things. We don't judge. All we ask is that if you choose to do those things, then come to win because those of us who dedicate ourselves to it take it seriously.
That being said, for Ashes of Creation we require staying a citizen of whichever Node we decide (as a Guild) to call Home. I'd love to give a more in-depth overview of our goals in the game, but we just don't have enough information yet. I can tell you, with absolute certainty, that we will make no demands on your choice of Race, or Class, or Religious choices in the game.
HOW TO APPLY
Right now, we're each kind of doing our own thing while we wait for Ashes of Creation to Release. Some folks are still playing SWTOR, others are spending more time with their families, etc. As we get closer to Alpha, and Launch, expect to find more members in our new Discord server created specifically for this game. Feel free to follow the link above to join the server and hang out. I'll be checking it when I can and we can talk.
If after reading this you feel like you'd make a good fit, and are serious about helping us create a meaningful presence in Ashes of Creation, then feel free to reply to this topic, message myself or Exzenon, or just jump into the Discord server and read the Rules.
