You want to join the Acolytes?
Good for you! This is your first step in Gaming Salvation. The Acolytes are not your average run-of-the-mill guild. We consider ourselves to be a Gaming Community of like-minded individuals who spend their free time playing video games. We offer 5 Divisions in MMO's (Age of Conan, Warhammer, Aion, Mortal Online and Star Wars: The Old Republic) for you to play in. Not only can you choose one to dedicate yourself to, you can choose all of them! We have spent copious amounts of time building a strong leadership core which has led to much success in gaining a solid membership base. Throughout the glorious history of the Acolytes we have experienced many server firsts, and even quite a few of the world firsts! We have active Guild Leaders, active Officers and even more important...an active player base.
We have a strong backing of Public Test Realm players and Closed Beta players to feed us advice and let us know (within limitations of Closed Beta Terms) what is new in the upcoming patches to the MMO's. This solid backing of active leaders, active Officers, active players and active Beta testers has led to our success as a Community and will be the foundation to our continued success.
Now that we have your attention, let's get to the basics of the Acolytes.
The Acolytes were formed on April 11th, 2005 by our esteemed Overlord, Hieru. He woke up one morning wanting to create a multi facet guild, and set out to do so. After tens of minutes of thought he came up with the name Acolytes. He began to advertise for members of this new guild for the upcoming MMO, Age of Conan. On April 12th, 2005 after using public forums to advertise his new guild, the first member Skullscrusher joined the Acolytes. To this day, Skullcrusher still faithfully serves under the Acolyte tag in Age of Conan. After months of relase date setbacks for Age of Conan, the guild had grown to quite a few players waiting to join the game. On May 17th of 2008, after the long awaited launch of Age of Conan, we became the Cimmeria RP-PvP's server first guild at 10:16 a.m. server time.
On January 4th, 2008 the Acolytes became a multi-game community by opening up a Warhammer Online Division. This new division started with just 3 members (Cach, Rache, Dredger) and quickly swelled to 105 members before the October launch of Warhammer. Not only did the Acolytes quickly establish themselves as the dominant force on Cimmeria in Age of Conan, but the Acolytes of WAR quickly took over the #1 Spot on the Phoenix Throne server in Warhammer. In early 2009 the Acolytes decided to open up yet another division for the long awaited NCSoft MMO, Aion. Since then we have decided to capture the enthusiasm for other up and coming MMO?s: Mortal Online and Star Wars: The Old Republic.
Over the years we have enjoyed many server and world firsts along with many other accomplishments....
As a community we boast over 165 active members and 56 inactive members in our MMO Divisions, along with numerous friends and allies that play alongside of us and visit our forums on a regular basis. We have members in every corner of the globe; from the Pacific coast of the US, to the United Kingdom, to Turkey and all the way over to Australia and New Zealand.
We are a diverse group of individuals that come from varied backgrounds, cultures and jobs. We claim many armed service men and women, a web designer, a graphic artist, a Secret Service agent, stay-at-home mom?s and dad?s, factory workers, auto workers, a disc jockey, supervisors, plant managers, salesmen, drug counselors, underwriters, stock brokers, students and the unemployed. Each one of them brings to us a different perspective, a different feel and a different reason as to what makes them a gamer.
We have, and will always, support your choice to choose when, how and why you play. We will never tell you to log on at a certain time, or how to play you character. We live and die by the motto: ?it?s your $15?. We support those that only want to PvP, those that just want to PvE and those that just want to roleplay. That?s why it?s great to be an Acolyte... we offer what no other community can: a chance to experience everything the game has to offer. The average age of an Acolyte is 26, but we range from our minimum age requirement of 17 all the way to 60 years old!
