Welcome to the Amazons! I am Matriarch Atalanta, active founder, and den mother. The Amazons were created to be a guild for gamers both male and female who feel at ease playing female characters. Here we support each other, work together and learn/share knowledge. Please follow our Code of Honor. It is expected of you as an Amazon. We are family.
*A Matriarchal message to other guilds RE: Guild Problems, Conflict and Drama resolution: If there are any in-game issues ie. excessive ganking (griefing), cheating etc by one of our members please have proof ready. A screenshot etc. we take these claims seriously. Here in the Amazons we don't take kindly to other guilds recruiting from our community. Poaching is a big no-no. We've all worked hard to find amazing individuals and our focus is to keep them playing with us. Feel free to contact me, or a Strategos and we will work to resolve any issues quickly. Thank you.
"An Amazon's heart is defined by means of help and volunteered support. Your kindness and patience helps the community grow. Communication is important to be a part of our community. Be active on the website and in-game. Ask not what the guild can do for you, ask what -you- can do for the guild. Sisters are expected to work together for the betterment of all and to never give up. That is the key to being Amazon."- Matriarch
THE AMAZON CODE OF HONOR IS A GUIDELINE FOR MEMBER CONDUCT.
IT'S ALSO A STATEMENT ABOUT WHAT KIND OF GAMERS WE ARE, AND WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR.
OUR UNIQUE THEME: Themiscyra is a guild of gamers (real life male & female) who enjoy playing female toon's (characters) in MMO's. Exceptions apply. The Strategos, Regents and Matriarch will decide if Male toons/alts are allowed to join (such as boyfriends, husbands etc will be taken into consideration) in a guild. IRL male players are always welcome! Being Amazon is within the spirit. We don't try to exclude anyone, but we do follow our unique theme.
Our government system can be found here. CASUAL ROLEPLAY (voluntary): Some Amazons enjoy roleplaying strong, fearless and proud female warriors. As independent tribes of combat ready warriors, we typify the imagery of Amazons. Forged in battle, we favor the strong willed and frown upon the weak of heart, always looking out for our own. We are sexy and empowered. We have no room for serving maids, tavern whores or any individual lacking in respect or spirit. We refer to ourselves as 'Sisters' and a 'Sisterhood' because not only it reflects our community theme, but also the connection we share.
Amazons always choose RP-PvP servers. Roleplaying is not mandatory to members, in an RP-PVP server you are expected to respect RP even if you choose not to engage in it. Guild chat is usually non-RP. Although some people might talk in character if they choose. We always call each other 'Sister'.
Keep it clean! NO erotic/sexual roleplay (eRP) in guild chat or Mumble. However what you do in the tavern private rooms or behind the bushes in-game is your own business. It must not tarnish the respect of other people towards our community. Keep the perception of our guild clean.
PARTICIPATION & RESPECT: To be an Amazon means you help and support. The community is what you make of it. Groups won't happen on their own, if you're looking for a group, don't be shy, please ask. As always, loyalty means more than gear. You have a responsibility now to help this community grow.
Without you, there would be no events! So please attend as much as you can. Download Mumble (our official voice client) to ensure a faster and more convenient way to communicate with other Amazons. You can just listen if you wish.
We are a community for considerate players. Treat others as you would expect yourself to be treated. Common courtesy and respect is the rule of the day. Racism & sexism etc will not be tolerated. The Amazons are also LGBT (gay) friendly. There are a lot of indecent players lurking about in every game, but those named Amazon and with the tag 'AMZ' are not among them.
The reputation of the community will not be sacrificed. Ask the Matriarche or Strategos if unsure of context.
PVP RULES OF ENGAGEMENT & GENERAL GAMEPLAY: All players are fair game, defeat them at your discretion without griefing. PvP is voluntary, its up to you if an opponent will live or die (if its red, it's dead).
Vengeance: Hell hath no fury! If a player ganks you while playing or griefs you at an npc or while you're afk etc, feel free to repay them at thrice the cost. Assistance from fellow Amazons is welcome.
Use of exploits or third party programs in PvP will not be tolerated, if it's against the game's terms of play then it is also against ours. We'd rather not be associated with exploits. The Amazons pride skill above all else.
All Amazon members should keep in mind that their characters should have a name that does not conflict with the naming policy of each game server, for further details please read up on your game's rules and naming policy.
INACTIVITY: If you know that you'll be away from the guild for more than a month or two, send a Strategos or Matriarch a private message (PM) and let them know. If you do take a break from the game and return to find your character removed from the guild, simply post on the forums or contact an officer for an invite back. Being active is important to us.
You are honor bound to the Code of Honor by loyalty and duty. By becoming an Amazon, you hereby agree to act in accordance with the above guidelines, & acknowledge that you will be held accountable if you do not abide by them. You promise to honor and support the Amazon Sisterhood with respect and help new members feel welcome.
