Vigilia Mortis is a mature gaming community for the fans of Warhammer IP. We are presently organizing ourselves to be an exemplary group of players for the upcoming game Eternal Crusade. Before making an application all potential recruits must read the following text and agree to follow the policies we have in place:
All members applying to the Chapter must be at least 18 years old; players must be advised that this is an adult community with adult topics and conversations. We're a PC gaming community, we do not accept applicants for console gaming.
Recruitment Policy & Chapter Policy
It's also in the applicant’s best interest to read up on our Chapter Lore & Information; this Chapter has rich RP back-story. While we don’t force anyone to take part in the RP element of the Chapter, potential members are expected to familiarize themselves with the general details in order to create a character fit for this Chapter.
When filling out an application, applicants must complete each section with as much information as possible. Applicants who provide large amounts of information are more likely to be accepted as a trial member, while applicants who respond with one line answers will be rejected and asked to fill out another application until the expected quality is met.
All potential recruits must speak English at all times, a recruit will only be made into a full member if they can show they are fluent in both written and spoken English.
All potential recruits must be at least 18 years of age.
All potential recruits must connect to the voice communication server for Chapter events.
Recruits who pass the application phase will undergo a two week trial, activity has to be shown on both forums and voice server for him to pass the trial period.
If the recruit is absent while in his trial period and doesn't inform the Chapter then he will be removed and have to re-submit his application.
Not Pirated versions of games are not acceptable.
All potential new recruits must wear the Chapter colours if the game allows for full colour customization.
Members must respect each other. In addition to common sense, please see Conduct and Voice Server Rules below.
Only in death is your service to the Emperor complete...unless you come back as a Dreadnought.
The Chapter leadership and support will comprises of the following people in the following roles:
Valrak - Chapter Master/Owner
Vaulik - Chaplain/Admin/Moderator
Sadon Tholdus - Chaplain/Admin/Moderator
Kylan - Chaplain/Admin/Moderator
Arcanis - Chaplain/Admin/Moderator
The Chapter Master will have the authority to make any decisions regarding the running of the Chapter without having to consult any other person.
The Chapter Master will avoid interfering in the running of any raids or organized events unless there is an issue that directly effects the Chapter.
Any member is allowed to post suggestions or ideas regardless of their position within the Chapter, this is OUR Chapter, lets make it the best thing since the Emperor made you.
If complaints are made against any member, the Chapter leadership will meet to address the situation. If anyone has a problem then please let the chapter leadership know ASAP. We are here to help, we are all equal members within the Chapter, we are here to have fun and kick some Chaos and Xenos ass.
The Chapter leadership will handle any flaming or inappropriate comments made by other chapters on our forum. All other members should not respond in any way to such threads; we encourage banter but please avoid the obvious trolls and flamers.
Any member found to be cheating, deliberately glitching, or using hacks of any kind will automatically be suspended, or expelled from the Chapter, depending on the severity of the case in question. The Chapter leadership will determine the appropriate consequence after a complete consideration of the circumstances of the incident.
If it is decided a member should be expelled from the chapter for cheating, deliberately glitching or, hacking they will be banned from all Chapter servers and may be reported to any official boards within that game. Reporting of a member to an official board will only take place if there is irrefutable evidence that the member has cheated, deliberately glitched, or used hacks.
Any member breaking conduct or voice server rules, or otherwise causing trouble or upsetting other members, may be given a warning. The final decision on warnings will be made by the Chapter leadership.
If any member receives 3 or more warnings within a period of 6 months, the Chapter leadership will look into the case and decide if that member should be expelled from the Chapter. We are running a mature community; I don't expect any of us to act like kids slagging each other off.
If it is discovered any member is under 18 years of age they will be asked to leave the Chapter with the option to rejoin when they reach 18.
