    Salvation - Perfect World Faction

    Post  Ariah on Sat Jun 20, 2009 4:13 pm

    To access Salvation's official forum please go to: http://www.salvation.forumotion.net

    Greetings To all Salvation Aspirants!

    Thank you for visiting. This portion of our private forum is open to anyone and everyone who has an interest in our faction. The purpose of this is to allow interested players a chance to see what we are all about in an anonymous and low-pressure fashion so you can decide if you’d like to become a member of our family. We hope that you’ll join us, but if what you read does not impress you then at least you know without feeling like anyone tried to coax you into joining something you did not understand.

    Salvation is an in-game faction or “guild” on the Heaven’s Tear PVE server composed of players who are active and fun-loving. Yes, every guild in this game says that it is helpful, generous, caring, etc. and most of them probably are! We aren’t even making the claim that we are “better” in any way than any other faction. In fact we have some members in our guild who are active participants in other guilds with their main or alternate characters. That is perfectly okay with us. We have no hostility or animosity towards the rest of the community and will respect your loyalty to others as long as you likewise show us the same courtesy.

    Our membership is growing slowly, and we intend to keep expanding at a reasonable rate from this point forward so that we can eventually participate in Turf Wars effectively, but no member of our family is required or expected to play the Turf Wars game withus if they choose not to. Anything that you do in our faction is up to you as a person to agree to. We have no hardline requirements you must meet beyond the following.

    Level: We ask that your character be at minimum 19th level because characters of a lower level than this really don’t need guild support to succeed, and should be concentrating on learning their roles as an individual before joining a faction. This is not a condition we’ve set to keep people out who are inexperienced, but rather a simple reality of the game itself. Feel free to seek our assistance with your Call of Duty Quest around level 19 and perhaps we can get to know you that way if you prefer.

    Class/Race: We accept all races and classes right now. Yes everyone wants certain types of characters for doing territory wars, and we are of course interested in attracting those classes like any other guild, but honestly we’d rather have a player who enjoys his or her character than one who is laboring to be something they don’t like just to stay in the guild.

    Conduct: You must be willing to abide by our three guild rules. These rules are not, and never will be, tools to control or abuse you as a person and player in the game. They merely outline for you what we as a family have voted and agreed upon as being a reasonable foundation for our progress and vision. Please read them and hopefully you’ll see what we mean.

    The Articles of Salvation


    The following three simple lines fully explain what should be expected from any member of Salvation. They are not intended as an attempt to exert control over you or to impose an overarching government standard by which you must abide. These rules merely outline for you what Salvation is about, and how you as a member or officer can best serve our cause.

    Be Courteous

    Be Supportive

    Be Vocal


    An expanded explanation of these concepts can be found below. If you are curious or simply need more detail then please read on. Otherwise skip ahead and post your application!

    On Being Courteous

    Treating others within and without of our guild is of paramount importance. The game world has plenty of loud-mouthed, kill-stealing, rude and inconsiderate people already. We are not those people. We do not bring those people into our faction. When you are in the company of your guild mates you should feel comfortable and at ease. If you do not then we need to know why as soon as possible so that we may correct that injustice.

    Likewise if you mistreat people outside of our faction and our leadership hears about it you’ll meet a similar fate. Make our faction look good so others will want to join us. You are all goodwill ambassadors to the rest of the world, and we rely on you to maintain our positive image. If you made a mistake and someone is accusing you of something that you cannot help or did not do then please let one of our officers know before we get blindsided with angry personal messages. You are one of us and we’ll back you if you’re being picked on. Just be honest and do your best to avoid such things.

    Profanity in the Guild Channel: Although touched on above this particular point often draws the ire of some. Firstly let us be clear that occasional colorful language is fairly normal and for the most part nothing any normal adult should be too concerned about. We are not going to banish you from the faction if you make a mistake or slip up a bit in guild chat. We are all human and nobody is perfect, but if you continually make other members uncomfortable or incite arguments without any real productive reason for doing so, then you’ll be asked to leave for the benefit of our other members.

    Before anyone starts quoting the first amendment here please take into account that nobody anywhere ever gave their life to protect your right to spout off dirty words into the guild channel of a video game. While it is very true that many noble men and women have and still are dying or suffering to protect our freedoms, it is insulting and ignorant to merely abuse those freedoms at the expense of others. The guild channel is for everyone of every age group. Use a personal chat to get across a “stronger message” if the need arises. We appreciate and support your right to free speech, but likewise hold the same regard for our other member’s rights to the pursuit of happiness, which might be compromised if the guild channel doesn’t remain at least a PG13 rated public channel.

    On Being Supportive

    As a member of this guild you have a right to expect your guild mates to help you when you need it. You are likewise encouraged to assist others when they need help. The higher you get in levels the more assistance you’re going to need. Start building friendships with your fellow members now and things will be much more fun later on.

    If you want the guild to enter into territory wars then be prepared to contribute coins to the war chest. Territory wars are expensive affairs and no single officer or member can rightly be expected to fulfill that cost. If you have a few coins to spare then donate it as per the treasury thread. If you cannot afford it that’s okay, we understand, but it is an unfortunate necessity of the game that the faction must gather coins before it can gather territory.

    Don’t focus on flaws that cannot be helped. If you have a negative opinion of someone or their character’s race or class then just keep it to yourself. It is impolite and pointless to put people down, and such things really are beneath you when you are a member of Salvation. We love all of our members and will not be happy to see anyone made to feel bad about themselves.

    On Being Vocal

    Speak up about things you agree or disagree about where faction matters are concerned. This is not a dictatorship. We vote on important issues and you have a right to question the way things go. Try to do so politely and constructively, but don’t sit there and feel like your input isn’t needed. We want to hear from you! You might have a stunningly brilliant idea nobody ever thought of. And always remember that there is no such thing as a stupid question. If you didn’t know the answer the odds are high that someone else didn’t either.

    Another important thing to point out here is that members who need help from the guild must ask for it. We cannot really know if you’re ready to do your FB quest unless you tell us. If it is time to kill the Dismal Shade then point that out to us. Getting help with group quests is a very good reason to join a guild, and if you don’t take advantage of that by speaking up then you are cheating yourself and possibly others who need the same quest. Please make sure that one of the officers knows you need help and we will see to it you are cared for. We really do want you to succeed here. You might be asked to wait until we can form a suitable team to take on the challenges ahead of you, but rest assured it is important to us all that you are safe and happy within our faction.

    Guild Dues


    As of May 16, 2009, a new rule has been put into place. The following is a new requirement that we ask of our members in order to help Salvation grow and achieve all the things that the majority of our faction is hoping for.

    A dues system has began as of May 16, 2009.

    A weekly dues is required by level, as you grow in level so does the amount that we ask you to give to the guild, all amounts have been decided to be fair according to player's levels and player being fairly active. For those who are less active there is an alternative available.

    Level 19-29 - 3,000 weekly
    Level 30-39 - 5,000 weekly
    Level 40-49 - 7,000 weekly
    Level 50 + 10,000 weekly


    If you have any alts in the guild you are asked to pay half this amount for your alt each week including the standard amount for your main character. If you are not active enough to be able to pay these amounts without hurting your character's progress, then we ask you to take a little bit of time to gather herbs and materials to give to the guild's item vaults. This helps greatly as well. Of course even if paying the dues is not a problem to you, if you are willing to collect items for the vaults as well, it is very greatly appreciated.

    We apologize for having to make this mandatory, however simply asking to give what you can when you can was just not working. Without everyone working together towards the same goals, those goals will never be met.

    I wanna tell you all a little tale of Genesis of our Name, I feel that it is important to understand what reason we are Named Salvation is, Why it was chosen and what it truly stands for.

    First off we are "NOT" named after a cartoon show (As team Titans is), nor or we named because it sounds cool. Thundercats and the Sporkmiesters are far better choices than the Name we are now asked to consider. BUt back to the origin of our name.


    It all Starts in a serververse Far far away, in a land called Shaiya. A world where it's peoples are divided into to light and dark races. While most of the time these races are on seperate servers the world has points where these two races occupy the same areas (forced PVP). These areas also contained joint dungeons that dropped Magical stones which could be added to equipments to make them better (simular to the shards we use , only better). Also the world was odd in one respect, in that you could play a character up to level 50 in normal mode, you had to do this to unlock so called hard mode, which you played to level 50 to unlock ulitimate mode. each progression unlocked new powers and each level must be unlocked by the previous mode of play.

    It was into this world a young Tank (defender) we'll call Poon was born. This young tank wandered this world often becoming upset at the selfish nature of her fellow Shaiyaites. It was on a fateful trek into a light side dungeon, that She came across a young mage that had been left alone because of a real life issue (ie She was a new mother and had a newborn baby which required all the attention a newborn requires). Alone stranded and having no chance to fight her way to the surface, She remained huddled in a corner hoping some one would come along and help her.

    It was then that the Party of Poon was a member came across this young mage. Poons party told the young mage TS !!! Suicide and and rez in town was the common attitude. This enraged Poon and she dropped party from these heartless, greedy scumbags with which she was with. This of course drew everything from pleas to return to profanities I will not subject you too.

    Poon partied with the young mage named Tipsy2K7, whom to her friends is known as Tip. Now these dungeons that they found themselves in are differant from the Fb's we know, as in the mobs respawned as do the overland mobs do here. The party size was pegged at 6 as they are here, and the mob encounters are adjusted to the six party size. Also they were not instanced, meaning that several parties could be in and pass each other.

    It was as Poon was trying to to start the long march to the surface that such a party came along. THis party as had the one Poon was formerly in laughed and told the two of them to just suicide, rez in town. It was from this party that a young healer named Sura, found her teamates action objectionable. She dropped and party with the heartless form members of her party. She asked to join, the two and offered her assistance in there journey.

    Thus was born the seeds of What we are. The core belife, being that to forgo self for the benifit of another is the true judge of a persons worth. This is evident still to this day in those that truly belive in the name Salvation. I could list things done by certian members of this family, and yes we are a family, we trancend the concept of faction or guild. For only will a family member sacrifice betterment of themself for the benifit of another.

    But back to the three that found themselves two levels down in a dungeon designed for a party of six. Well to make this a little less than a novela, I will just say that afte about two hours of slow methodical progression they final reached the outside..........collapesed from the real physical and mental toll this wraught. As they lay upon the ground they exchanged names and buddy request to be sure they could find each other when the others were on line.

    It was at this point that Tip stood and started to Say goodbye, as if she thought that while it had been fun it was to good a thing to last. The Tank and the healer stood and asked Tip where ya going ? She stated she was headed to town. The healer and the tank Looked at each other and said "Me Too!!" at the same time.

    As they walked to town , they formed a bond and vowed to each other that they would always be there for each other. Such mundane topics as time zones , times they could play where discussed. Thus is your heritage, out of the needs of one we have grown, and while one of the three has been lost to us because of real life circumstances, her absense has blessed us with for more that belive as the three did that fateful day they met deep within the dark and heartless dungeon.

    Let it be known that with thier union began the Legend of of the three on this distant land, many where thier exploits, So feared by the Dark side that they had bounties placed upon thier heads. But above all they were known to stop and help the least of thier server mates.

    But these are tales for another time.

    Salvation is currently spreading it's wings to encompass other games and create branches of Salvation (or sister guilds) in these other games.

    As of right now you can find the core group of Salvation in a game called Shaiya. The name of the branch guild is Honor Bound. Please PM Zain Zalon here or in Shaiya if you're interested in joining.

    There is also a second guild in Shaiya that is part of Salvation, it is called ~Prelude~ as it is a guild that is used to weed out bad apples and keep them from entering the grand halls of Salvation's Primary Shaiya guild, which is of course, Honor Bound.

    On the dark side of Shaiya is a guild called Angel Killers, also a sister guild to the main guild Salvation.

    There is a sister guild in Perfect World that is for the same purpose and this is known as Redmption. (No that isn't misspelled.)

    Further than that in another game called Empire Craft, is a Union also called Salvation. It is currently ranked 94 out of thousands of nearly a thousand Unions, and we are growing strong and steadily.

    All the wonderful people that you have come to know in various games and here at GCR, run rampant in these guilds, and will be sure to be seen helping in the creation of other guilds in other games as time moves on. This organization system in which Salvation is embarking upon is an attempt to keep good friends connected regardless of what game they play, and for new friends to find us in whatever game their heart draws them to. Will you join us too?
