What is Ragnarok?Edit
Ragnarok is a Scandinavian multi-game organization, which started in as a guild in Anarchy Online in 2001. The original guild was a result of a merger between Nordic Fusion, Absolute SWE, Danish Federation and Svea Rike. In time we grew and started new games. Thus Ragnarok is now represented in Anarchy Online - Atlantean, World of Warcraft - Aszune, Everquest 2 and many other games. Our common ground are the passion for games, these pages and our forum.
We strive to maintain a high standard among our members. We salute maturity, good manners and fellowship above all else; Ragnarok is a family we are all proud to represent. In order to keep the bonds tight and the standard high we maintain strict rules in our recruitment procedures. They may seem tedious, but they are important to make sure that new arrivals fit in and meet the recruirements.
Who can join Ragnarok?Edit
We are a Scandinavian organization, therefore all applicants must be able to speak either Norwegian, Swedish or Danish. Other than that each game has specific requirements.
Ragnarok is always looking for people who are enthusiastic about their character class/profession, and who are willing to dedicate their time and effort to support the guild and its members.
Code of ConductEdit
We are a Scandinavian guild of friends but every guild need some rules, so these are the basic rules.
No money between guild members!
“Take what you need and give what you can” is the motto here. Free buffing and the handing down of armor, weapons and similar items is a very big benefit to the guild, but not the biggest. Fellowship is the biggest benefit and that can easily be ruined if the privilege is abused. We therefore ask that members don’t ask or request items that are higher than their ability to use them. An item that is sitting around waiting to be used is one that could potentially benefit another member even for a short time. Also, selling items that have been given to you by the guild for your use is discouraged. You’re not required to hand down items you find or purchase, and may sell them. Handing items down is just a sign of interest in growth of the guild and is favorable.
There is one exception to this rule: in the case of very rare and therefore expensive items, where the finder stands to “lose” hundreds of gold by handing the item down rather than selling it. Here we encourage sale at a favorable price within the guild. No need for a list. We all know the items.
Common sense and good behavior is expected.
This includes not using foul or abusive language in the member channel, not being rude, not being disruptive during meetings, etc.
This should be self evident. Childish behavior will not be rewarded, maturity and responsibility will. Also, blatant use of exploits is not acceptable conduct. Not only will you make us look bad, but also the use of exploits can result in you being banned from the game. Ragnarok wants to maintain a solid reputation as an honorable guild. We do not want to be accused of cheating in PvP, corpse camping, foul language, griefing etc. If that is your game, this is the wrong guild for you.
Remember you represent Ragnarok every time you interact with others; therefore it is very important that you be respectful of people and their time. For example when asking for buffs - take your time, ask politely - and just as importantly: give people time to reply. Do not join a team and then go “afk” for 10 minutes. Stand true to the commitments you make to others in-game. Ragnarok has a good reputation with other guilds, and we want to keep it that way.
Generally, you will be much more likely find what you are looking for, and less likely to upset other members if you ask a few times over a longer period of time, use the forums or ask a leader in a PM. Use your head; if you demonstrate politeness and are very supportive of the guild, you are more likely to find what you seek. If you are arrogant and rude, you will most likely find no help. If you are having a hard time finding something, ask a general nicely if they can assist.
We expect you to participate in the member web forum.
It is the perfect place to get to know other members of the guild, and a very powerful source of information and communication outside of the game. Participation on the forums will help to strengthen our community.
