The Mystic Spiral Alliance is an established International Luxon Alliance with members from, literally, across the globe. While most of our membership is European we also have members in North America and Australia. The main language in use is English and the "Alliance clock" is set to UK time. Whilst prodominately PvE based, the Alliance has a very strong community feeling, evidenced by friendships which span guilds and games.
The Current Member Guilds
There are currently 5 members of the Alliance: Mystic Spiral [MYST] (Leaders), Legendary Survivors [TLS], The Brotherhood of Kai [Kai], Rage International [RAGE] and Children of the Dusk [CoD]. The majority of the guilds in the Alliance are small in size, which helps to add to the sense of community - people know each other well. MYST is the largest guild, consisting of around 65 members, whilst Kai is the smallest with a handful of players. All the above guilds are PvE orientated, but we are not adverse to having PvP guilds within the Alliance.
What we expect from Guilds
For the most part, we leave Guilds to be run as their leaders wish. However there is little point in being in an Alliance if you live in isolation, so communication is perhaps key to being in this Alliance. No one expects every member to speak in Alliance chat, but sign of life is a must. Guilds and their members should respect the Alliance rules, especially their application to Alliance chat - this is a communal space after all. Guild Leaders and 2 Officers are required to sign up on the forum so that we can contact them about Alliance goings on.
What we offer to Guilds
Each Guild benefits from the use of our forum, consisting of private rooms for their members only, and recruitment rooms. Whilst many Guilds choose to have their own VoIP, MYST offers its Ventrilo server to members gladly - we believe that voice communication is more effective than written, and whilst we'll never demand people use it, voice communications helps friendships form faster and prevent misunderstanding. Additionally, we have a sister Kurzick Guild which Alliance members can use to play Kurzick AB or as a donation sink for their title. MYST organises at least once weekly events (usually twice) and encourages guilds to join in and make their own events. Alongside the serious events, we also run fun events such as quizzes and dodgeball, and get involved in the celebrations within the game (we recently sponsored the Canthan New Year feast for 4 events). We have an Xfire and Facebook group, and also provide an Unreal Tournament 2004 Servers for our members to enjoy. Above all though, we offer a well mannered but fun environment in which to enjoy the game, with some of the most experienced players with diverse backgrounds and interests.
What we are looking for
One or two active Guilds with 25-40 members interested in PvE, title hunting, farming and well mannered yet relaxed socialising. Those who regularly do HA are a bonus as we have a demand within the Alliance for this type of PvP.
To join us, head to the Guild Recruitment room of our Forum and follow the instructions there. If you have any questions please contact us in game or via forum PM. IGN: Tasha Darke (Alliance Leader), Xanith Guldor (Recruitment Officer).
