***** Mission Statement / Philosophy *****
The Kindred is an open-concept guild.
We are not elitist and nor are we exclusionary.
Our main focus is to provide players with a good atmosphere in which to enjoy the game. We cooperate and grow together as a close group of kindred friends.
We value all of our members and treat everyone as an equal. – We freely and openly promote all members to Officers. We encourage all of our Officers to get involved, recruit/accept invitations from other players who share our values, kick inactive members, and generally share responsibility for the guild… We aim to empower a sense of feeling like this is ‘your’ guild.
We are not a guild that is ‘owned’ or led by any person, but belongs to all of us. We share the leadership between our most long-standing active players, as a way to actively show that we are not a guild that is ‘owned’ or led by any particular person – The Kindred belongs to all of it’s members.
We personally operate in complete transparency, have no secrets and believe in openness. – Hence the purpose of this thread, sharing our guild news with the rest of the world!
Our core members are some of the most active players in the game. A guild is only as good as its members. – If you sit back and do nothing or say nothing you will indeed feel left out. – A good community is built on trust, a mature social attitude and being generous.
If you believe that you are better than others because of your rank or are a person who imagines that elitism is the way to be, you may not like it here. The Kindred is a community aimed at civility, friendship and a calm and relaxed manner of game-play. If you have no sense of humour or are a puritan – you may not like it here either.
^^ Don’t confuse that above statement to think that we are not competitive players though.
Inflexibility and egoism are the failure of all groups. Let yours go and you will have a great time with us – Level up! Gear up! Group up and move as ONE – The Kindred!
