;) my thoughts exactly.

The wide open recruiting done on these forums certainly allows for negative influence to make its way into a group. Information that may affect the security of the organization tends to remain with leadership and proven members and is not always available to the membership as a whole. Right now we do not really have anything that could affect such security, but we can expect to see these policies play out as we march to OE and the game mechanics that would require them fall into place.

Right. I think the important balance we want to strike is between having an inclusive community that doesn't make you jump through a ton of hoops if you want to join and a community that can keep it's sensitive information of of the wrong hands.

Right now in these pre-game phases the best way to do that is keep sensitive information restricted to our highest ranking members except on a need to know basis. As those need to know situations increase as they surely will post launch, you will see additional security measures be implemented.

Just as long a new recruit doesn't remain a peon for too too long.

I believe it is all up to the recruit. He\she just needs to show he\she is trustfull, along the time.

Goblin Squad Member

Forgot to say: we can always use counterspying to test people's loyalty ;)

Liberty's Edge Goblin Squad Member

Define peon.

I just started out as some random person who signed up through our older version of this thread. My ascent was not even about interest in ascending (as it should be, I suppose) but rather just the willingness to step up and help keep the organization moving forward when the need arises.

Really the 'secret information' is going to be about more sensitive strategic planning and high level tactics. Basically just the stuff that could make or break the organization. Aside from that aspect, there is a lot of equality among the general membership. As they mentioned above, it is all about being inclusive without putting the metaphorical key to the city in the hands of the unknown.

There really isn't a peon position, there is really just leadership and membership. There is plenty of room at various levels of leadership if that is your thing. Being raised as leadership is a combination of meritocracy and the trust of your peers. If this is your kind of position, aiming for a leadership role in one of the sub-guilds is an excellent place to begin stretching your muscles and proving your stuff. These are elected roles, and will have elections every few months once we have a company in the game.

;) and i´d like to add that, imho, Livedragn is a good example of what leadership means in TEO and the Cotp in general.

It is far less about the power you might get, and far more about being of service for your organisation and fellow players then most peole might think.

As Lifedragn has stated there isn't really a peon role. Basically we will aim to give access to information as you need access for information, and make sure there are appropriate screening processes in place to weed out those who would misuse information from those who are receiving it.

A great example would be our military. They are going to need to know a certain amount of sensitive information just to do their job. Being in military channels / seeing military channels on our mumble and hearing orders be given during a battle is something we'd prefer our enemies not be able to do once the game goes live.

So screening will probably be part of the process of entering into our regular military. If you aren't involved with the military, we may never give you that information, primarily because you don't need it. Even if you are in the militia, you'll probably be lead by a military commander who has a good idea of the whole situation, and relays the orders specific to your militia unit to you. Not only is that more secure, it allows you to focus better on what you need to be doing.

I imagine there might be similar processes in place for things such as trade caravans. You won't generally get info on them unless you are in them, and getting into the more secure ones may require a certain level of screening.

These screening processes themselves will aim to strike a balance between overly easy access to information, and unreasonable barrier to entry. I imagine the hoops we ask you to join will be quick easy things for a real member, that might be kind of a pain in the butt for a spy. Such as a voice interview, or a certain period of active playtime within TEO.

How long have you all been a guild (not including CoTP)?

Goblin Squad Member

The guild was first put into place under the name Great Legionnaires in April 2012 I believe, with this thread. I didn't join until November 2012, so I am not sure of history before this thread.

Great Legionnaires

After membership discussion and voting we renamed ourselves The Empyrean Order, set our sights on Nationhood, and re-launched with this thread in December 2012. TEO

Then there was discussion about pulling back from trying to be masters of a nation, as our goal is not government or dominance and decided to approach the community with a much more collaborative mindset. Shortly after that was the CotP merge.

Goblin Squad Member

My comment was really just meant as a tongue-in-cheek joke, but the additional info that came out all sounds more than reasonable - so thanks! It never even occurred to me that there might be *spies* joining! I have a lot to learn about MMOs!

Just a reminder: If you are a member and check in here... or are not yet a member and wish to join, head over to the Covenant of the Phoenix forums and make sure you are signed up. Instructions and links on first post of this thread. :)

I will take great pleasure in killing you all. How do you know what good is?

Taking pleasure in the act of killing other sentient creatures definitely seems to be a step in the wrong direction. Though I must advise you to not expect our flames to be snuffed so easily.

This sentiment right here? Pretty good example of what isn't good.

While I'm sure we could all have a lot of fun debating the ideas of moral relativism vs. universal morality it isn't even needed here. Ever heard of detect alignment?

Although Debrio made his post on Friday, he had only applied to the UnNamed Company today (Sunday). I will let him know that the recruitment threads of companies are not a place to role play, or otherwise engage in confrontation (unless in response).

Apologies.....

Goblin Squad Member

It's an honor being spanked by Bluddwolf in public. Here is a friendly bump to compensate for my misstep.

The vision of Brighthaven is so clear revealing the darkest reaches of the hearth. :)

I've likely got a spot or three on my Guild Forger pass that I'll sell to dedicated TEO members once we get very close to EE opening up. They have Day 1 EE, almost all of the dailies, Destiny's Twin, etc. Join up, be active and let me know you are interested in an EE account.

No promises yet, as I'm still waiting to hear from a couple of game table friends who might join. I'm guessing at this point RL will keep them from participating.

If they aren't used then I'll offer them at cost (1/6th of what I paid) to new (after this post) dedicated TEO members on a first join basis (I reserve to the right to determine if you are active enough...not looking for excessive participation, but joining and doing next to nothing in the ramp up will likely not make the cut...)

Goblin Squad Member

Thanks for the welcome gents!

Just wanted to say hey!

I have been around awhile, but not as active as I wanted to be. Can't wait to get started in PFO.

I just want to say that GW has done a good job with the map. There really isn't any 'best' spot, as for every strength a location has there is a pretty counterbalancing 'weakness.' They've clearly spent more than a few moments making it balanced without making it uniform or symmetrical.

Nice job Steven and all at GW!

Lot's of activity on the new CotP boards lately. Join the conversation and don't miss out!

Goblin Squad Member

I want to welcome all the new members who've joined in the past few days.

It's exciting to see PfO start to show signs of life again. And we're honored that a few of you have decided to join with us to create The Empyrean Order and to found the First Free City of Brighthaven!

This will be fun.

Woo! Woo! Thanks number two!

Congratulations on your fancy new home as well. Must say I am surprised to not see K go. But H was also a personal favorite of mine, so I can't blame you. ;)

As a side note: the fact that my initials match our settlement location is *entirely* a coincidence. Completely and totally.

First, forgive me for my delayed congratulations. I've been out of town for the past 4 days, helping to chaperon 380 8th graders on a Washington D.C. trip. I seem to have missed all the Landrush announcements and I'm still catching up on threads (and sleep).

I hope your chosen location affords you and yours all the peace and prosperity I know you were seeking for Brighthaven, not only for yourselves, but for those you hope to protect.

As I told Alexander over on the Pax forums, in my official capacity as Imperial Ambassador, I look forward to working with him and TEO. As Hobs, I'll be looking to visit with something tasty in hand to share once we all get settled.

Goblin Squad Member

Hello Hobs and thank you for your kind words.

;) I wouldn´t be surprised if someone will give you a tour.

Greetings to all lurkers and folks interested in joining TEO, and our area of choice in the SE edge of the map.

We are looking for plenty of like-minded individuals who want to enjoy the game in multiple ways; from PVP and our military, our ambassadors, the great crafters, the city/empire builders, scholars and more.

If you are interested in being part of something great, and want to have a voice and vote in an excellent organization, your voice WILL be considered.

We have a mumble server, (as well as access to our alliance TS server), great members and a desire to see this game succeed.

If interested, post here... then follow the links on the top of this thread.

Regards;

BraxtheSage, proud member and friend at TEO.

done.

(Though it feels completely wrong applying for a guild without having run any in-game missions/events with its members).

Goblin Squad Member

Well, after a few meetings on TS/Mumble with us, it should be fun! lol

Goblin Squad Member

Welcome! And we'll be sure to get some in-game missions and events going as soon as possible!

Welcome! Feel free to join us in many of the other games we are playing with CoTP until the launch of PFO if you like!
