    1. You aren't up to date on my guild situation. Please consider me no longer a member of CotP as well. I no longer wish to be associated with the guild on any level.
    2. At this point I think it’s best I move on. Thank you for a good nearly 6 years. Things are very different here now and my own personal viewpoints have changed as well. That combination leads to my conclusion. Again, it was an honor. Safe travels.
    3. Sorry this was delayed. Apparently I was half asleep and forgot to save my post. I’m going to try my hand at some fairly aggressive PvP. I’m going to offshoot a guild until I decide if I’m sticking with it. I don’t want to bring any grief on CotP. I’m still CotP and here to help.
    4. I understand where you are coming from Inseril. We will see shortly what happens with the population. I mostly play in MO but since many of the scenes are extremely small I find myself and my party members moving over to FO frequently. It is a catch 22 though. I l’m not going to find any new members or build any new relationships doing that. I’m holding out hope that the progress they are starting to make isn’t to late.
    5. I think we should get together as a Chapter in game and in Discord and throw some ideas around for Events, Recruitment and our long term goals. We haven't really done this. I would suggest next Sunday since Sunday seems to be the day we have the most activity.
    6. I do think we need an injection of new blood. There is a general apathy amongst the chapter. Frankly, if we continue down the path of in action and status quo this chapter probably isn’t going to make it. That statement isn’t an indictment of anyone. Just an opinion. I don’t have any answers either so that leaves me as part of the problem.
    7. I like the idea of the mercenary service. I agree that it could potentially take away from personal advancement and guild goals should it be come a popular service. i see plenty of people who are running across the map encumbered who could use a mercenary escort to grab up those bothersome encounters with bandits and help safely guide them through passes. I've struggled myself come up with the initial conversation with a potential new player joining our ranks in this game more than any other recruitment type contact I've ever had in any other game. It's not like I can say, "Hey would you like to go visit X dungeon. It is right around your skill level and you need X from within it move forward with X quest" This point to the lack of content I'm concerned about. I haven't personally started the main story lines as I have always since the very beginning wanted to wait until official launch in hopes that it would be the most polished experience possible for myself to enjoy. I know you and I (LIfe) had a conversation at one point of a quality new person and just a number. I agree we want quality people first and fore most. I'm open to any and all ideas on how to start that conversation in this game. The only luck in Shroud I've had in the past was just asking someone who was in the area I'm in if they'd like to group up and getting to know them and see if we personally clicked. That is recruitment 101 though. It's been a while since I've personally struggled with recruitment. It's always come fairly easily.
    8. As far as I know, this has not happened.
    9. I know losing Findupre was a surprise to everyone and believe you when I tell you it’s been a tough transition for me. Findupre was a big part of my gaming experience within SotA and it’s been an adjustment to say the least. I’m very happy some of us have landed in Stormsong Vale. I believe in the community Church is trying to put together and I believe we could be a big part of it. I do find myself questioning however, what role if any CotP is going to play in SotA. It hasn’t seemed to hold the attention of most who are playing and we have shown essentially zero growth since I and my guild members folded into CotP. CotP has been my guild for over 5 years now. That’s the longest run I’ve personally had since I ran my guild in SWG from Beta and continued on after a hiatus as a member. I guess what I’m trying to say is I find myself once again asking myself Who are we going to be in Shroud and when are we going to get started. We are very near launch and we have little momentum. I understand that some of that lands squarely on my shoulders. That being said, are we going to step up and create our experience in Shroud?
    10. I spoke with Church tonight and he told me to let you guys know if we all want to live together he can setup an area specifically for us. He isn't opposed to moving stuff about in town. He also stated he can fulfill and specific needs so if for example anyone wanted to be off the beaten bath he could setup that as well. Or whatever anyone needs. He is extremely flexible. I will pay any CotO costs you may have as well. It cost me 5 to move from my property manager from a Findupre lot. Just an fyi. I made no promises
    11. My #1 choice would be Stormsong Vale. Easy access to a lot of zones with varying tiers, a ton of room, and a very active and friendly Governor. Church is a genuinely good guy with a beautiful small town feel.
    12. Well...I somehow managed to snag a row in Resolute this morning after I got home from work So Soryn Fields is gone. More info to come.
    13. Thought it might be time to give an updated list of where we currently hold Chapter Houses. I think I have finally settled on locations that I'm hosting. Covenant of the Phoenix -Island- and Findupre -Village - Multiple holdings, including multiple Inns with open spaces. Contact Arnaeus Moonglow or any officer and we can get you a place to hang your armor. Soryn Fields - We hold a row lot in the resident area just up the road from the main entrance. This will be a 4 story row that can house multiple members including basement room space.It is also near Highvale and Resolute. Soryn Fields is the PoT commerce hub nearest Resolute. Stormsong Vale - We hold a row lot with additional basement rooms to come. Celestial Gardens - Island - Just outside Brittany we hold an Inn in the heart of Celestial Gardens. Additional Basement rooms will be available as well.
    14. I think the only place I might hesitate to go to deep solo would be the rise.
    15. Monday-Thursday I’m currently not on much. I jump in from not at all to about 7-9pm MST. Saturday’s are on and off all day. I do go to my nephews games so times are hit and miss. Sunday for the most part are my most consistent gaming day.
