Through your adventures with the family you'll be required to accept a credo to receive certain promotions within the family. These are in place to help let you know what will be expected of you with each forward progression within the family. The day you join our family, we welcome you from whatever background you've come from. Whether it be raider or roleplayer, crafter or pvper, or simply a casual gaming background your after, our credo gives you directions for how to behave as a central part of our family.
If you come across a credo or oath you are not willing to accept, and do not wish to proceed, you are more than welcome too. Not everyone wants to be a leader. It is perfectly ok to stay where your at and continue to keep growing within the family without the added pressures of being a branch of our tree. Player satisfaction is first and foremost importance in our family and we do not wish to force people to take a bigger part than they choose to fill.
Those that accept the credo's will then be held to abide by them and extend their understanding to others. They are our guidelines and help keep our family on track. There are 3 credo's that members will be presented with. The Kindred Credo when they decide to become an official member, the Protectors Credo when they become a family veteran, and the Leadership Credo when they earn their place among our Warlords and Officers.
Mark of the Kindred
The Kindred Credo
"I understand that I am now a part of a much larger whole, that my actions affect all who are involved and that I will be expected to refrain from acts which cast a negative shadow on our family. I will not cheat, I will not troll, I will not insult others, and at no time will I attack or compromise another member of the family. I will bestow more respect onto my foes and allies than they bestow upon me and will hold a higher level of honor than those around me. If I have a problem with a member of the family I will try to approach them peacefully and calmly to try to remedy the situation before it escalates and understand that most confrontations start from misunderstandings and miscommunication. In event I cannot remedy the situation I will come and speak with and officer or elder for advise on how to deal with the situation. It is with these things in mind that I accept this credo and pledge my loyalty to the Gaiscioch Family."
Mark of the Protector
The Protectors Credo
"I understand that the challenges that lie before me may not provide reward, may not provide fame, and may not provide glory for my actions. However I stand by the Gaiscioch way of life and swear to protect it with the best of my ability. I will help others learn of our ways, provide assistance to the eldership, and be an source of information about the ways of our family. I will continue to be an example of how a Gaiscioch should behave, by putting others in front of myself, helping the weak become strong, I will protect our integrity by saying what we do, and doing what we say. I will never fall back on a promise and will honor my word. I will let my actions speak for me and understand that they speak for us. I am a protector, and will protect our Family to the fullest of my ability. It is with these things in mind that I accept this credo and accept the Mark of the Protector."
Mark of Servitude
The Leaders Credo
"I understand by accepting this credo that I am accepting a life of servitude. I am willing to help the family grow by taking on tasks to better the family life. I understand that this position is not one of power and control but one of inspiration and motivation. I will do my best to see to it that all players feel welcome in family and out. I will not hold a grudge, and I will not pass judgment. I will show kindness and benevolence to all even when they do not show the same. I understand that every action I make will be the voice of the family and if I speak out of hate, anger, and rage it then taints the family name. I will remain calm, caring, and friendly to all and will stop at nothing to ensure that those who live under our roof feel taken care of. I will go out of my way to help others, even when there is no reward. I will be a knowledge source for members and an example of how a Gaiscioch should behave. I understand that gear and achievements come secondary to fellowship and memories and will go out of my way to help others grow closer together and form new memories. I herby accept the Leaders credo and offer myself to a life of servitude."
Mark of the Mentor
The Elders Credo
"I understand by accepting this credo that I am a protector of the Gaiscioch way of life. My actions directly ripple through the family. I swear to approach every obstacle with a calm mind and a clear head and view it from all angles before making a decision. I understand the amount of work that is involved with this position and will do my best to provide my fair share of support to the elder council and family. I will act out of selflessness and compassion, I will put others before myself, and I will go out of my way to help those in the communities the Gaiscioch exists within. I will represent the family in the highest of honors. I will not act our of rage or anger. I will not use my authority to gain power and control. I understand that as an elder those below me should be tended to first, that our strength comes from those we help."
