Ahoy, adventurers of Verra!

Welcome aboard the Moonshadow Marauders, a guild of daring pirates united by the mystical pull of the moon and the unruly chaos of the Void within the realm of Verra. We be chartin' a course for thrillin' adventures, sailin' toward uncharted coastal realms and islands in this vast world. As moonlit marauders, we be seekin' both treasures and the enigmatic unknown.

## 🏴‍☠️ Guild Name: Moonshadow Marauders

### 🌙 Guild Description:

Set yer sights on this, me hearties! The Moonshadow Marauders be a motley crew of swashbucklers and freebooters, navigatin' the high seas and venturein' into the shadowy depths of dungeons. Whether ye be a seasoned sailor, a crafty hand, or a fearsome buccaneer, there be a berth for ye in our crew.

#### 🗡️ What We Offer:

- **Legendary Escapades**: Create a legacy of audacious adventures under the capricious moon's sway.

### 🚩 Guild Details:

- **Type**: PVX (Aye, we indulge in both PvP and PvE!)
- **Region**: NA (North America)
- **Time Zone**: UTC-8
- **Primary Tongue**: English
- **Age Requirement**. 21+

**Node Aspirations**: Our sights be set on two types of nodes in particular. The first be the **Scientific Nodes**, for in a world with limited fast travel, scientific knowledge be the key to unlockin' its mysteries. From level one, we shall embrace this path with NPC Traveling Scholars as our guides.

The second be the **Economic Nodes**, for in a game driven by trade and commerce, the Economic Nodes be where our fortunes shall be made. We aim to fill our purses with coin and thrive in the bustling markets and unique buildings available only in these nodes. NPC Merchants shall mark our transition from level one to the bustling Expedition stage.

### 🏴‍☠️ Creed of the Moonshadow Marauders:

This here be the code that binds our crew in Ashes of Creation. Heed these words, for steerin' from this code may land ye in hot water!

1. **Loyalty and Commitment**:

Loyalty be our anchor. Abandon ship without a fair reason, and yer chances of returnin' be as slim as a plank on a ship's edge. Rejoinin' be at the cap'n's discretion.

As we chart our course through Verra, our guild's structure be evolvin'. We be lookin' for members ready to lend a hand in buildin' our crew from the ground up. If ye ain't ready to brave the challenges o' our growth and evolution, this guild might not be the right harbor for ye.

2. **Embrace the Guild Family**:

Treat all crewmates as family, for in Verra, shipmates be like kin. Ye don't choose yer family; ye embrace 'em. Be patient, especially with them landlubbers or those unfamiliar with certain aspects o' the game. Help one another, for our primary goal be to enjoy the journey together.

3. **Contributions and Leadership**:

Loyalty be the compass point for promotion. We encourage our crew to actively contribute to the guild's success. Mentor the new hands, assist raid leaders in explainin' the battles, donate to the guild's treasure chest (especially them valuable resources), be the voice o' reason in guild conversations, raise a cheer for crewmates' achievements, lend a hand to lower-level mates in gearin' up, join the guild's triumphs, partake in the weekly dungeon runs, fill our coffers with resources, and stand fast with us when rough waters be ahead.

4. **Respect and Courtesy**:

Harassment and belittlin' o' our crew be as unwelcome as a ghostly ship on a moonless night. There be no room for actin' high and mighty 'cause yer stats be shinin'. Constructive criticism be encouraged, but never belittle or demean yer fellow crewmates.

Settle disagreements privately with the officers. If there be trouble with an officer, report it to the Node Mayor through in-game mail.

Things to Avoid:

Steering Clear of Discord: To keep the crewmates sailing smoothly, we avoid turbulent topics such as religion, politics, and real-world controversies. These subjects tend to stir up storms of arguments and strife among us.

Respecting Diverse Crew: While we encourage spirited discussions and a spectrum of viewpoints, it's crucial to treat each other's perspectives with respect and understanding. Our crewmates come from various backgrounds, and mutual respect keeps the ship steady.

Sailing Away from Drama: Stirring up drama, indulging in gossip, or sparking needless conflicts is as welcome as a leaky ship. Such behavior can capsize our unity and comradeship.

Avoiding Heated Disputes: Weigh anchor on subjects like game balance or divisive in-game events, which often ignite fiery debates. If discussions turn turbulent, let's agree to disagree and navigate onward with goodwill.

Personal Conflicts Below Deck: In case of personal conflicts, it's best to address them privately and respectfully, without dragging the guild into the tempest.

Mindful of Triggering Waves: Weigh anchor on sharing content that might distress or offend others. What amuses one pirate may dishearten another. Let's ensure our interactions are enjoyable and free from unnecessary clashes.

Let's All Have a Good Time:

Banter and Jest: As pirates, we thrive on good-natured banter, jokes, and playful taunts. Feel free to engage in light-hearted conversations and good-humored bullshitting with your fellow crewmates. It's all part of the pirate spirit!

5. **Representing the Guild**:

Uphold our guild's reputation in all yer interactions. Mind yer manners when speakin' in trade chat or other forms o' communication. Speakin' offensively tarnishes the guild's honor.

Don our guild tabard when ye be adventurin' if ye can; it's a mark o' honor but not a must.

Help the guild grow by invitin' them landlocked players to join our ranks.

Any breach of these conduct clauses might find ye walkin' the plank, be it demotion or expulsion.
