I agree that I have heard there will be a reset after Alpha. However they can not purge your memory of what you learned: what works; what worked, but is hard; and what you have not managed to make work.

Goblin Squad Member

Very true Lam, my concern is that those systems have not to my knowledge been mentioned as being ready for alpha so everything might default to 'what you have not managed to make work'. I really hope we get a blog soon!

Here's reminding everyone that The Empyrean Order (TEO) is the founding company of the settlement of Brighthaven, one of the winners of the original land rush. Anyone seeking a position in an organization dedicated to fostering a nurturing atmosphere need look no further!

While all over our forums, I wanted to also acknowledge and congratulate Cheatle for being selected to become TEO's Military Steward here. It's a long road ahead, but we're sure you'll whip us into shape!

The following were also selected to be the heads of our sub-guilds running up to EE at which point another election will be taking place.

Quote:

Argent Guard: htrajan

Golden Scales: Dabole
Explorer's League: Alexander Damocles
Azure Astra: Braxthesage
Seraphic Commission: Ixiolander

Congratulations to everyone and I'm sure if anyone has questions about the various subguilds or an interest in them, we're all happy to help out how we can.

Goblin Squad Member

Thank you very much, Ixiolander, over the next couple weeks I will be setting into motion a completely new direction for the TEO military. We have the tools, the initiative, and participation to create a solid foundation going into EE.

Congrats to all of the Sub-Guild leaders! All of you have shown strength and determination, as well as a lot of hard work in getting your promotions.

I joined TEO last week (was in the pre-100 group, mid-90-ish) and wanted to post here as a testimonial for new players looking into joining. I am very happy with the choice and would recommend it if you're interested.

The private forums are active and friendly, the leadership is calm, responsive, and thoughtful (which if you've ever been in a volatile guild situation in other MMOs you know is a huge plus).

If you're like me, you had some of these questions in your decision:

If I join TEO (or the other 2 previous land rush winners), isn't it like throwing away my land-vote? Should I give it to another smaller settlement so it 'counts'?
Totally up to you! Valid concern. If you're interested in a smaller group then there are a lot of options. I believe there are several smaller Companies forming up around the two major areas as of now (as well as all the non-affiliated ones, of course). I don't speak for any company, so I'll leave the descriptions of the regions to the respective Companies.

As far as your vote, evaluate what you want out of the land rush. Is it land you want, or is it a group? If it is a group, your vote still counts regardless of where you put it.

I've looked at the map, but it doesn't mean much to me. What areas are important? Why is one spot better than another?
Beats me man, beats me. The two biggest power areas are South East and North, but it is early still and "biggest power" may mean something a lot different in August. It might be totally different in two weeks. If you feel strongly about a specific hex type then go for that. I'd suggest narrowing down a region if it matters to you, then looking at groups in that region.

How does alignment factor into this?
I've never played D&D so I am only passingly familiar with alignment. I read the blog (https://goblinworks.com/blog/alignment-and-reputation/) and googled Neutral Good as well as a few others. Neutral Good (NG) seems like a pretty good fit for me, so TEO and their settlement Brighthaven fit well. If alignment matters to you (from a purely gameplay perspective, it does) then figure out your most likely alignment and narrow down a group to that type.

In summary, if you're leaning towards a large stable settlement and a great group of people, I urge you to consider TEO. If not TEO, there are other groups in our neck of the woods which also might be a great fit for you as well. I look forward to seeing you in game!

Welcome Roughshod!

Glad to have you.


That reminds me what location on the map will we have anyway? LOL found it, I was reading the map wrong. :P

We are at Brighthaven, bottom south east corner.

Roughshod, that was a great post and we are truly fortunate to have someone as well-spoken and rational as you among our members.

With all the different choices available to you, I want to thank you for choosing The Empyrean Order. I know you made the right choice.

Come say hello OUR FORUMS. We look forward to meeting you!

Goblin Squad Member

You guys are really on a roll! 119 members so far, reminds me a lot of the first Land Rush :)


I just hope to see some nice mountains near Brighthaven. not just for me but all the players who join in for the settlement. I love the fact that we have so many like-minded people joining now.

Goblin Squad Member

How do you plan on defending brighthaven's territory, if I may ask.

Not trying to pry into military secrets, but are you going to have mountain checkpoints/fortresses, roaming contraband patrols, etc.

Mostly I'm wondering about restrictiveness of movement within your territory and access to your territory, both in terms of by myself and with a group (paramilitary or diplomatic). What are your concerns with such groups? With your territory and foreign bodies within? Anything else pertinent you might add?

thanks.


Well due to geografic isolation it would not be hard to defend.

Security through obscurity, of course.

Goblin Squad Member

I think we'll probably have to play on the map for awhile before we'll know. Deciding on course of action at this point is like deciding today if my favorite PFO move is the shield bash or the sunder.

Goblin Squad Member

Oh, hello Urman, I didn't know you joined TEO! That's definitely a marriage I'm happy to see. My life is a bit crazy now with work so I don't get to keep up with the daily business.

Looking forward to seeing you all in game!


@Urman if thats the case I may not be very helpful I am planning a non-combatant priest. I will be stuck in town all day. :P

Goblin Squad Member

Oh, I think we'll defend it well enough, Arlock. I just think it's a bit too early to be able to say with any confidence exactly how we will.

Goblin Squad Member

Join TEO and join the organization that is dedicated to helping to actively keep the game FUN!

Goblin Squad Member

Woo hoo! We have exceeded our Land Rush 1 total count! 127 right now and still growing strong.

(bump) I just cannot wait to jump into the game. I hope I can find an escort to help me get to brighthaven.

The Explorer's League plans on helping with that a good bit. Have no fear, we'll get to you to our Bright Haven on a hill :)

I have to start hitting the books on religion in the river kingdoms. Anyone got any suggestions?

The comprehensive guide to Golarion religions would be Inner Sea Gods.

For the River Kingdoms specifically you'd want to look at Guide to the River Kingdoms.

Goblin Squad Member

I would also recommend Chronicles of the Righteous if you are interested in good-aligned demi-gods.

dashes about providing coffee

Join TEO! We have coffee golems!

Goblin Squad Member

Good Day all! I joined at the Second Kickstarter. and have recently bought into Alpha testing. I am pleased that my application to your killed has been approved.

I'm 43, male, married, no kids. I have played WoW, Tera, and Rift. I am a casual player that sucks at PvP. As you can see I know my limitations. I love the crafting and Exploration aspects of MMORPGs. My play time will be some what limited. Looking Forward to playing a Monk, but am aware that I will have to wait. will be playing a Fighter in the mean time.

Love Piazo products especially the new(ish) Rise of the Runelords Card Game. Have played every iteration of D&D since the beginning and love Pathfinder the best.

Again very happy to be on the ground floor of this game

Wonders if there will be any hot springs near Brighthaven where the coffee golem could take a dip. Could make for a good coffee shop location.

Goblin Squad Member

Join TEO! We have Europeans!

Goblin Squad Member

We do have a number of German members. Any French or British members?

Goblin Squad Member

Welcome Sir John Cabot!

Gayel is French, and I know someone is British, I just can't think at the moment.

I've never played D&D so I am only passingly familiar with alignment. I read the blog (https://goblinworks.com/blog/alignment-and-reputation/) and googled Neutral Good as well as a few others. Neutral Good (NG) seems like a pretty good fit for me, so TEO and their settlement Brighthaven...

I suspect in reality, what matters after a year is "Us vs Them", not nominal alignment. Two LG settlement could easily wage war for control of an important PoI, or a CN settlement could ally with a LN one.

However, there is a very interesting element of self-selection: Would you rather be on the side of those saying "screw alignment, it's meaningless, let's just game the system and build the best settlement" or those saying "we want to be labeled as a shining beacon(*) of good, even if we have to jump some extra hoops".
(FYI, the answer to that question is self-evident to many, although they may disagree on what the obvious answer is).

(*) beacon, not bacon. Shining bacon of goodness is something else.

Mmmm... bacon of goodness.

KOTC has onion rings and TEO now has bacon of goodness? :)

No wonder they have so many members! Their secret has been revealed

Bacon of goodness? I'm going to have to ask around about that one....I feel like I'm missing out (I do have that offer from Toombstone for those Magistry scented soaps though; if I find out we really do have bacon of goodness here at TEO, Toombstone I'll make sure I ferry some over to you ;-)

Goblin Squad Member

hmmmm, I foresee a lot of Bacon and Onion Ring skinny dipping, now we just have to get us some sauce!

This might take the cake on awkward comments in this thread.

But only Elkhaven has Canadian bacon and maple syrup.

Psst! Erastil's Irregulars has back-bacon, for that one-two punch of porky goodness.

Canadians are fast, too. No stopping for tea when there's a landrush to be settled.

Cast your vote for Erastil's Irregulars to sponsor a settlement in the landrush!

(edit) Sorry for poaching in your thread, but not very sorry. I have to be a little sorry, though, what with being Canadian and all.
