Server: Alpha-Omega / Beta-Naimi / Release-TBD

Faction: East.

Playstyle: PvX/RP Social Events

Website: http://www.eternalsanctuary.net

Recruiting Status: Open

What is Eternal Sanctuary?

Eternal Sanctuary is a strong willed community. A community about acceptance and being yourself. It's here to provide a safe haven for players looking for a home. We have a Semi-Casual look on progression content. If you would like to be involved then you can be, if not, that's okay too! ES is a PvX guild, meaning we dabble in each and every gameplay style out there. Whether its Roleplaying, Dungeoning, Sieging, Raiding, or Sailing, we will be there.

What's with the LGBT thing??!!

ES is an LGBT community. Think of it as an online Gay-Straight Alliance. We are not isolationists or think that we are better. But there is something to be said about our atmosphere. As most of our members are a part of the LGBT community, discussions on certain topics are brought up more than other guilds. Gay Marriage, Transgender rights, the new HIV prevention pill...we talk about them. And of course we wouldn't want someone in the guild to feel uncomfortable, so the title is mearly a way to find people who we suit.

Do you guys accept straight people??

We hear this one...a LOT!....

yes, we do...in fact it has been about a 50% ratio in the past when it comes to gay vs. straight people within the guild. Like i said before, we are not isolationists, we are only trying to find people who are comfortable with our type of guild.

Rules:

Eternal Sanctuary is based on the golden rule, "Treat others as you would like to be treated." It seems so childish, yet many people don't abide by it. ES has a ZERO tolerance for harassment, bullying, and griefing. Remember your not only representing yourself in the online multiverse, but the guild as well.

Leadership:

Guild Leader, Zan

The guild is lead by a representative democracy. A council of officers who represent the guilds best interests for the members.

Voice Chat:

The guilds voice server is hosted by the Raidcall program. We strongly encourage hopping on and saying hello.

Questions?

Post below or send me a PM, Interested in talking? Hop on our Raidcall, and give me a shout!

So you run on the standard guild rule of Dont be a dickhead then? good to see more and more guilds making that rule and similar ones obvious to prospective members :)

good luck in your recruitment drive....have you tried recruiting on www.rpg.net yet? they may be interested in your guild over there, they usually tend to form a similar style of guild in mmorpg's(the LGBT welcoming one) but i dont think anyone has proposed one for Archeage there yet.

Am I the only one here that thinks it is weird to have something like a LGBT 'tag' for a guild?
It honestly makes me feel weird and uneasy.. Not because i'm against any of it, but just because I do not see the need for a tag like that to even exist, or why any form of sexual preference would, even in the slightest, effect your gameplay or guild choice..

I have been a part of many groups and guilds, and NEVER have I seen something going on along the lines of.. ''Oh, you're gay in real life? sorry, you can't join here''... Heck, if there was any hating based on gender, sexuality or race, the people that were hating would be removed promptly..

I don't think you should specificaly even put emphasis on something like this.. it'll just work towards CREATING a rift between ''normal'' and ''LGBT'' people that is not really present that much to begin with? (if at all) .. in my experience anyway

Yeah its not really something that is a major deal in most mmorpg's but i dont really have a problem with the tag(even if from a lore based perspective its kinda pointless).


Besides dont elves fit every one of those tag markers? :)

A agree that it should be unnecessary, but the gaming community whether mmo or not can be a very offensive homophobic environment. Countless times I've had members tell me that it's nice to be in a group they can relate with. The problem with most LGBT guilds is they have a very open sexualized tone to them...manly the ERP aspect of games. We try our best to maintain a professional outlook for players looking to find a community that they can be comfortable with.

On a large scale, i do agree. But we are just a tight knit community of straight people and LGBT members. For many members they don't have real life support, it's nice to be part of a community online when there is nothing else. Heck, I had one time a father, yes a dad...message me in rift for his son to join the guild...because he just came out to his parents and needed someone to talk to. Well why not in his favorite place, in game :) Being a gay man and living in West Virginia, where there is no support...it's nice to log in and have that.

So I apologize that it makes you feel uneasy to see the LGBT tag, but to others it's a signal of feeling welcome.

Honestly, I don't see how it would cause a rift. Just interact with each other and poof, there goes that rift. It's if no one on either side decide to talk to each other that causes a rift.

Hopefully I see you guys at launch. Good job going East!

Best of luck to your recruitment.

i get why guilds use the tag and dont have a single issue with it beyond lore based stuff thats easily dealt with in game....as i mentioned above Zan go post about your guild on that site i linked aswell as im sure you'll gain some decent loyal members from there(they have a bunch of guilds on various mmorpg's all full of damn good players) and last i checked there are zero guilds being set up for archeage there atm so it's the perfect time to go announce one :)
