New: the random guild FUN day!

Dear Whitestar members,

this is a prototype of a weekly/monthly FUN day I will activate for TODAY; Saturday the 19th, the RANDOM FUN DAY!

What will happen today?
You will have FUN! The random kind! There are several tasks you can take/pass, according to the guild activity you are in today. This FUN day is presented to you so you are not in the ordinary, the gaming routine is broken and you have extra fun with your guild members! There are several tasks you can do today, see the following:

General FUN tasks:

  • You are in TS? Talk in your native language all day!
  • You are a native speaker? Maybe you have an accent? Speak that one heavily all day!
  • If you wanna answer guild mates on Anook, answer in your language/accent.
  • Whisper a guild member you have rarely talked to before in the game you play: tell him/her to join you in the activity you are up or just say something random and nice!
  • If you wanna post a screenie on Anook today, add something funny in it, like a Nicholas Cage face mayhaps? ;)


(wow, googeling his name brought up weird images..)

  • [Choose a guild member after logging in you will whisper everything that is happening for a time you choose yourself. Like @Savian logs in and whispers @Aeyvi "Hello Aeyvi! According to the today's FUN event I will whisper you!" - everything that is happening or going through your head! Like:

"Now I am queueing for a raid. I hate random PUGs haha, but I need that one special item!"
"Now I get some breakfast. I love eggs but I don't have any. So I will eat bananas instead"

ESO fun tasks:
Today is a special FUN day! Our dearest member @Superflyguy has lost a fishing bet very closely! According to that he has to run through the sewers today, not killing enemies, he shall run NAKED so the enemies see the body of steel they are supposed to fear! Do not miss this spectacular event, guys!
WoW fun task:

  • Running a dungeon/raid today? If you are with guildmates, make sure to run circles around every dead boss and type /y BURN ENEMY! BURN!
  • If you are doing quests or dailies today, be sure to ran zig zag to irritate your foes and reduce the tracks you are leaving behind!

FInal Fantasy fun tasks:

  • War doesn't need fighters only: be a craftsman all day! Cut down trees, get some flowers or fish or food... mmmh, such a relaxing FUN day!
  • While being a craftsman keep telling a guild member what you got or experienced. Invite them over for a craft PARTY!

Feel free to choose one or multiple FUN tasks for this very random FUN day and have a wonderful Saturday :)

[ESO] Our plans for the fall 2015

Dear members,
Thanks to all of you that have answered our Round Table August 2015 and participated to our guild meeting the 12 september and share your opinions and feedback. We have listened to you, and here are the decisions we have taken accordingly.

WEEKLY ACTIVITIES
Officers will share the organization of weekly events spread in the week. Spontaneous event, and extra events will also be happening.
As we agreed within our Community, we will not organise MAJOR events on WOW-days.

  • Monday,20h: Fishing Trip (social event, all lvl)
  • Tuesday, 21h: Imperial City Night – Elloa stream (new dungeons, sewers, pvp etc...)
  • Wednesday: random event
  • Thursday, 21h: Adventure Night – Elloa stream (daily pledge, craglorn, pvp ....) OR
  • Thursday, 20h: Trials – Elloa stream (12 players +- Vet10)
  • Friday, 20h: Vae tipsy fun – Vaetilda stream (whatever she fancy to organise) OR
  • Friday, 20h: Trials (12 players +- Vet10)
  • Saturday: OFF
  • Sunday: random event

LOWBIE DUNGEONS
We ask lowbie members to initiate their own lowbie dungeon event when they want it to happen. Most of the officers and members in Whitestar play on their main character but have lowbie alts. It is however hard for us to plan lowbie Dungeons events, because it need to fit YOU, not US. So please, do not hesitate to organise your own lowbie group, either spontaneously, or on Anook. Do not forget to precise the role that are needed to complete your group and the level of the group. 5 level difference between members is okay. More than that someone will have little loot.

TRIALS (AA, HR and SO) 
We will organise a weekly event. Alternatively on Thursday and Friday to fit a maximum of players. If we do not have enough members signed for the event 1hour before the event start, the event will be replaced by Dungeons runs. The days had been choosen to fit most of our members and be sure that everyone could participate if they wish to do so. However, if in future, we see that those days aren't the best fitting ones, we may have to change.
Note1: The Friday event will not be a Tipsy-Trial event. So please join the event with relative seriousness, calm, respect and focus.
Imperial City
Note2: If the event is Streamed, may it be by Elloa or Vaetilda, this will be warned in the title of the event. You can choose to not participate if you do not wish so. If you have an issue regarding playing in a large group and being streamed, you can contact me directly by PM, and I'll see what I can do best to accomodate everyone.

PVP
For now our home campaign is Asura Star. Asura Star is a active 30days campaign with all objectives rewarding alliance point. There is queues. A very good Yellow Emperor and a slight dominance from the yellow and the red. But Asura Star is also the most promising campaign in term of activity, and interesting combat.

However, we have decided that we wanted to accomodate all our members. So we will have 2 official campaigns, Asura as main campaign and a backup campaign, in case Asura is too full, or too dangerous to organise a fun event. We have not decided yet what would be our backup campaign.
If you have any suggestion, feel free to share your opinion.

We will organise PVP events in Sewers, District and Cyrodiil. We might not be able to tall in advance which area we will focus on, as it may depend of what's going on.
We have a lot of member that started to enjoy PVP more, so we will organise more PVP events in future, even on off hours.

SPONTANEOUS EVENTS
May it be alt leveling, daily Dungeons, Tel Var stones farming, Cyrodiil...There will be always events that will be organised spontaneously by members on off hours. Would you be organising a spontaneous event and looking for more, we highly encourage you to share in in the TIP (Today I Play) and to hang out on TS, to invite other members to join you.

BANKS
We have put a bit of order in our guild banks.

Whitestar
This will serve as platform of exchange. You can drop interesting item that you do not want and can serve other member, like set items or crafting materials stacked as high as possible.
The guild bank is NOT A GARBAGE. Do not drop your waste.
We aim to have a stack of all crafting materials to help our members to craft.
Our project is also to have a Trade Shop for crafting material exclusively. (see below for more infos)

Vault of Madness
Guild leader is @Superflyguy
This is our Crafting Material bank.

Whitestar Tavern
Responsible is @Vaetilda
She transfered all the materials in Vanult of Madness. That bank is not used anymore by Whitestar.

Ironbank of Whitestar
Guild leader is @torhagen
All the materials have been deconstructed and stored in the Vault of Madness. This can be used as extra storage. We do not have plans for it.

WHITESTAR TRADE STORE PROJECT
We have the project to open a trade store with Whitestar. Why? Just for the fun of the experience. The officers will put personal money to bid on the store for the first time, so you should not have any concerns that we are "wasting" gold for this experience.
Our goal is to have a Store specialized in Crafting materials + some rare stuff related to crafting. As our Store will be specialized, we will heavily promote it on forums, zone chat and other social media. We will be able to afford a very remote shop as we can hope to attract clients because of our specialization.
To make this project work, we will need your help. But there will be rules to be respected, as we are not opening a trading guild. We are opening a Guild Store and prices, size of the stack will be determined by ourselves, and everyone will have to follow the same prices, the same strategy.
Crafting materials by stack of 20, 100 and 200 (by 5 OR unit for rare materials/rune)
Price determined by the guild, and everyone follow the same prices
We will try to have stack of every crafting material in the game
We will need your help to sell the stack we have stored in the guild bank. The money you will gain from it need to go back to the guild bank obviously
We will need your help to stock or store with all sort of crafting materials, including lowbie crafting materials
The reputation of our guild store will come from our capability to store up all crafting materials, to have competitive prices.
Idea: we could even do some weekly promotion on some crafting materials, like in a RL shop. "This Week, 200 sandalwood for only 100g"

This is only a project for now. We need a bit more preparation to make it works.

I hope this summary was clear to understand, and that you are as excitted as I for the future of our guild in The Elder Scrolls Online.

Savian
Whitestar WoW guild ranks (and surprise promotions!)

Star Lord

He's the leader of the gang but more like the first among equals. Takes care of daily guild business and organisation of anything you can imagine. Tries to be a shining beacon to all his fellow guildies and is always there for you if you need something or want to talk. Contrary to popular belief he does NOT have superpowers, though he does seem to have above average knowledge on everything WoW-related

Current occupant: @Savian
Guild powers: Any and all

Supernova

Seconds in command and trusty advisors to the Star Lord, Supernovas try to help out with whatever they can if the Star Lord isn't there or if he's too busy. Supernovas are always very long-term members who've proven their loyalty and integrity beyond a doubt.

Current occupants: @Agagor
Guild powers: All except guildbank gold withdrawal

Elder Whitestar

This slightly exclusive group of members are those that have served the Whitestar cause for a considerable amount of time and may even have helped form this ever-expanding family. Elder Whitestarians are elusive creatures who may not be seen a lot but their presence is always felt.
Their loyalty is only overshadowed by their contributions to the community as a whole.

Current occupants: @Elloa, @Internet, @Nyah, @Nehr, @Alakina, @Sharlena
Guild powers: Access to officer chat and special guild bank tabs, can invite members but not demote or remove them

Whitestarian

The beating heart of Whitestar made up of everyone that has shown they are willing and able to be a part of this community. A wide range of newly-promoted Stars and near-veteran members, they make up the core of the guild and the bulk of the members.
Being a Whitestarian has both perks and responsibilities, least of all being kind to one another and strangers no matter what. Having the Whitestar banner over your head means you value our ideals and continue to spread them on your journeys through the World of Warcraft.

Current occupants: many!
Guild powers: Access to regular guild chat and the power to create events on the ingame calendar, access to most bank tabs

Newborn Star

Fresh recruits who have a month to see if the guild is suited for them or not. If they complete this trial successfully they will be invited to join the larger community. Newborn Stars are the fresh blood every guild needs. A healthy community is one that grows and adds compatible people at every occasion

Current occupants: ever in flux
Guild powers: Able to read and use guild chat, may deposit and withdraw from a few bank tabs

Starbeam

This rank is reserved for special situations like a member possibly being hacked or one that is due for removal for any reason. Rarely gets used, though this is the default rank on invite.

Current occupants: none
Guild powers: Can only read guild chat but not use it, no access to anything else

New Elder Whitestarians
Along with the clarification of our ranks, I'd like to also announce some overdue promotions that will take place later today. The following Whitestarians have been exemplary members of the guild and their contributions to both the WoW team and the community as a whole has not gone unnoticed. Exceptional loyalty is rewarded in this family! Congratulations (and shiny new Elder powers) go to:

@LunaDra aka Luna, for being a kind and caring person who definitely knows how to put a mog together with any kind of base you can imagine
@Cornilius aka Ed, for his excellent tanking and dps services despite his internet connection being made of string and smoke
@Vijo aka Vijo, for being the best damn Monk EU and proving to all that age is just a number as long as you know what the word maturity means
@Vordt.Ororyu aka Fizzy/Orson/Oro, for being a dependable and all-round entertaining presence who you might not notice at first but he is a Rogue after all
@Hultay aka Paul or Burning Fur, for his exceptional ability to play every role we need him to and for being a driving force behind our raiding team (by setting himself on fire and chasing us)

We salute you!
