A Sentinel Has Arisen!

 
It was my pleasure to approve Elric's original application, welcoming him into the CotP family.
I have known Elric since he joined the CotP community and been in many of the same chapters with him. His commitment to CotP and those game chapters can not be questioned. He has shown his leadership qualities and passion at every turn.
Elric has impressed both myself and many of the CotP leadership as a person that you can rely on to do what is in the best interest of CotP and its members. He has helped to make CotP what it is today.
It was my pleasure to recommend and be involved in Elric's promotion to Templar.
I wish to personally thank Elric for all that he has accomplished and for the positive impact that he has had on the CotP community as a whole.
I have no doubt that he will continue his climb on the CotP leadership ladder and to be a positive role model for our community.
Thank you my friend, for all that you have done.
Please join me in welcoming our newest CotP Sentinel!  It has been a long journey and you have arrived intact.

A new Templar rises!

Our community has many great leaders who are always willing to step up and take on the challenges of the day. Leaders who are always willing to help others by sharing ideas or experiences, by encouraging and pushing the limits of themselves the people around them and the community as a whole , or by simply being there when needed. Leaders willing to take on the tough or tedious jobs to ensure our Community has what it needs to not only survive but thrive. Any leader in this group from those who have only led a raid in a single chapter to those who have worked hard for years have all changed our Community by giving of themselves to make our Community the Great home it is!
Occasionally a leader comes along whose impact is so amazing and the difference they make on our community so wonderful that we must stop and recognize them for all they do for the rest of us.
Let me be the first to Thank Phyreblade for all the works she does with SWTOR Chapter, The Social Media Dept, The workforce and The Founders week Celebrations team, to name just  a few. Let me also be the first to Congratulate Phyreblade on becoming our newest Templar! Looking forward to seeing all the greatness she will bring to her new role.

A New Guardian Rises From The Ashes

There are four basic characteristics that great leaders possess.
The first trait is a will to lead. Leaders want to lead. And they embrace the opportunity to do so.
Second, great leaders are willing to make the difficult decisions, the tough decisions that no one else wants to make. Great leaders never pass the buck to a future generation. They confront the brutal realities. They meet them head on. They don't ignore them. They address them as best they can. It's a matter of honor.
Third, great leaders believe in something bigger than themselves. People want to follow those serving the greater good. If people see a leader focused on self-interest alone, they will not follow. At least they won't follow as far as they are being asked. They won't go the extra mile.
People search for someone who is willing to look at the bigger picture, to serve a transcendent good. And so, while it runs against the conventional wisdom, great leaders are also the greatest servants. Great leaders lead by serving because they believe in something greater than themselves.
And finally, great leaders have a sense of humility about themselves.  Ironically, those who accomplish the most are often the ones who brag the least.
It is an honor and a privilege to announce that Grim has been promoted to a Guardian.  Grim is a natural fit for the role, given his 9 year history with the guild and his experience in managing several guild chapters over the years as well as providing administrative support.  This experience has honed his focus on the long term picture of doing what is best for the Covenant of the Phoenix community - a focus that will be at the core of the many judgment calls he will make as a Guardian.
Please join me in congratulating Grim and wishing him the best of luck in his new position as a Guardian.

Ascendancy

When you find yourself in that position of decision maker, where the decision is required and you have less than all the information you want, you better be ready and willing to make that decision.  Some would say that the risk involved is not worth the potential negativity, loss or pain of failure.  I personally argue that a great failure through action will be remembered much more fondly than the status quo or mediocrity via inaction.  It is this fearlessness in decision making that is necessary to be a leader in this community.
Creating memories worth remembering is what we do here in the Covenant of the Phoenix, and this is one of the great responsibilities we task our leadership with on a daily basis.  Our leaders know that they will make a difference whether they like it or not and that leadership is a gift given not by our administration, but by the CotP membership who enjoy this community and wish to continue toward that eternal goal of good times and great fun.
These ideals are what drives this community as well as what constitutes some of the most important values that we require of our Sentinels, of which certainly includes the one being appointed here and now.
One of the honorable few who never set out to be a leader yet became one through the quality of their actions and the integrity of their intent; our newest Sentinel joined us in the Darkfall chapter in early 2009 and became a leader in the same chapter not long after.  They have clearly understood the mandate from our founders that everybody has a story, and if you do not know the story, you cannot lead effectively.  A multiple chapter leader, workforce member and chapter liaison, they have worked tirelessly at helping create an environment of progress through action, an environment that dares to fail greatly yet manages to achieve so much more. 
It is an honor and a privilege to announce the promotion of an individual who exemplifies the type of leader we desire in CotP. This individual clearly possesses the core leadership characteristics that we look for in a Sentinel.
Vessa, rise and be recognized today as a Sentinel of the Covenant of the Phoenix.

But would I be useful and would I get anywhere?

As we work that way... what's the easiest way to find our guild villiage?

 

Such as, I hit a button on the map and it brings up what I assume are a bunch of guild names... but I don't see ours.  Did we name it something else?

For some it's insanely difficult....and with xp loss, it can be brutal.  I'd say this is the most difficult to date.

Hey guys, got the email.  Haven't played a game with you all since 2011 or so, and I think it was SWTOR or Rift, but honestly I can't remember. LOL SO I doubt any of you remember me, and not sure I remember many of you, but I do remember enjoying playing with you all. 

What kind of presence do you guys think you will have in LiF?  Are you expecting a large guild? 

I've been wanting to jump into a good MMO, but there hasn't been a good one in some time.  How do you guys like LiF so far?  Is it a game you can see yourself playing long term?

How is the PvP in LiF?

What is the God's Favor used for?  Any PTW  or other essential items?

Is this game doable as FTP or is a subscription essential?

Howdy yall. Played SWToR with yall a long time ago. Giving this a shot and trying to get Lassider in with me as well. I am currently installing and will head to the settlement when I can. How does the settlement area work with the land that we are able to claim with the subscription? will we get our own land to expand the settlement? Will we get to keep that land after the 30 subscription is over? Looking forward to learning this game with yall. See you in there.

Welcome folks:

Our initial settlement was too close to a server line to turn into a permanent guild village, so we're in the process of finding a new location.  Work on your skills and get to the northern half of the map for the time being.

Vancealot, So the personal 150 tile claim from your subscription can be placed really anywhere, but once your sub time is up you will have to start paying for its upkeep and if you don't have that setup you will lose it.    In order to setup the upkeep you need to establish trade with the "crown" and trade goods for gold.

Thanks Sky. Now for my next incredibly noob question; how do I harvest plant fibers? I clicked on the ground but there is no option to harvest them. I have tried several different locations and the only options I have are: Inspect, Erect an Idol, Track animals, and Build Furniture. Is there something I am missing? Thanks for the advice in advance.

Jump in mumble for faster answers :to_become_senile:

But for fiber, there should be a gather option in there that will allow it.  but it cant be on a snow, rock, sand, or clay tile.

Cancel that, I did not go far enough away from the village to be outside their property. Got it figured out...

Here's the new settlement....mostly flattened already.  We're building huts and designing layout now.  Our monument is up and the land is ours.

Can you guys help me out with these questions?  I'm trying to decide to buy the game or not, and if I do, which starter pack to choose.

Wraith,

So far I have not done any PvP. No idea yet about he God's Favor. Does not appear to be PTW, you basically make everything you want. Only thing I have seen that the sub is necessary for is to not pay "taxes" on your land. But you can set up trade with the crown to get money to pay the taxes. If any of this is wrong, please someone with more experience correct me. GL, so far I am enjoying it; it is challenging to get things done.

I don't know much about God's favor either....seems like something we'll need later on though.  No PTW, just skins and fast xp for sale so far.

Anyone else getting close to making it to the settlement?
