Welcome to TLP guys! TLP has been around for almost 17 years and by the icons we have across the top here, you can see we've played almost every known major MMO out there.
If you got invited to our guild in the Alpha, stay a while... get to know us, we're funny, we're social, we love to party! Whether you are introverted or a complete extrovert, there is a place for everyone here in TLP.
First off, there are some basic ground rules:
The biggest rules for me is that the use of the "doube G" words is prohibited. By that I mean the fa**ot and the ni**er words or any variation or shorter form of those words. They are a hard-stance NO NO in any public, guild, or alliance chat channel. We are a multi-gaming guild with a variety of players and they engulf the players that are so very often offended by such words.
Secondly, just don't be a prick. Bottom line. We're saving our "prickdom" for our pirate guild, but even within that side guild we might do prickish things, but we certainly do not act prickish towards others. This includes general chats, anything public. I don't want to see people flame up the Faction or Nation or Trial channels... its just not us.
Now... you should take some time to register on our forums ( the registration password is: tlp4life ). Let me know if you do, and let me know the name you used so I can grant you access to private forums. You are more than welcomed to interact with us there. You also also welcomed to download TeamSpeak and use it for voice communication with other members. This is going to be a mandatory thing come launch. All members should be in TeamSpeak when in game. Ventrilo is a backup server.
In game, know that most folks will be ranked at "OFFICER" level (just for Alpha, come launch that will change) so that you can openly invite anyone that you feel would be a great match for TLP.
