It wasn't until the other day when I was writing a new addition to my website, Investment vs. Return, when I popped over to the Brotherhood of Redemption teamspeak for a little chat with the officers and guild leader. It quickly went from a formal interview to a swap of information and theories between game theory and economy theory. As you probably already know, I run an economy website. Most of the guilds prior to interview knew this fact about me. More often times than not, the guild is the one that initiates questions about the economy and what it is that I do. The Brotherhood of Redemption was different in this respect. While they did question me about what it was that I did with Tamriel Gold Goblin, they made suggestions that opened my eyes. I see the Brotherhood of Redemption as an endless sea of knowledge, their members come from all different sources. The time and dedication they have set aside strictly for ESO is simply mind boggling.
Brotherhood of Redemption is a PVX guild, They are recruiting 18+ members. They get the ChillBilly seal of approval for organization, and are a well oiled machine in PVP. Each member treats you as family. They are female friendly (which I like).
Most guilds think only about recruitment 'How can we get more members?' Brotherhood of Redemption, on the other hand cares about knowledge and informing their members. In the olden days, medieval days if you will, the royalty of the land only wanted the peons to know that the royalty were in control. This is how government worked back in those times. When I originally set foot, (my virtual foot at least) at BOR's website, I immediately thought of those medieval times. I was judging a book by it's cover. I visualized Kings and Lords, Nobles and Knights, peasants and peons.
So I prepared myself going in for the interview to see just that. Little did I know I was about to enter a realm of individuals who had personally worked together on each and every decision. It was a realm of equality. Each had put in the time and the effort to make what the Brotherhood of Redemption stood for. They stood for virtue and equality. Each member knows what it is to stand for something, they know that their actions reflect BOR, I have a huge amount of respect for members that realize that.
I am walking away from this guild with more knowledge, and perspective. A book is not always what it seems from the outside. As for aesthetics of their website. When you visit, you will see tons of information, walls of text, and an elegant structure. I ask that you look deeper into this guild, as they are a diamond in the rough.
Brotherhood of Redemption, I salute you, I had fun with you in PVP, and look forward to more interactions with you in the coming months.

It's not always peaches and cream being me. As a writer naturally I get a lot of questions about different things. One of my most favorite questions to answer is the subject of this post. It's a common question so I thought I would spend a little bit of time explaining the pros and cons of creating your own guild vs joining one instead.
Naturally you will find that if you create your own guild, you have the freedom to do with it what you please. You obviously cannot go too bold with this option, because when players join a guild, they do not want a great dictator telling them how to play. So a proper balance is needed to make sure you are providing your members with the advantages they seek.
Members seek support. Unfortunately, you cannot create a guild alone. Especially if you want any sense of community. So you have to seek out officers to help make this happen. Then you have to worry about organization. In my previous post about guilds and what you need to do to make a successful pre-launch guild, I explained a little bit about organization. Also, I explained that guilds take a lot of work. So really it boils down to one thing:
A few years after high school, I joined the local fire
department. It wasn’t five or six days after I signed the papers to become a
firefighter, I was working my first structure fire. I was terrified, but my
good friend and fellow firefighter grabbed me by the straps that held my air
tank, and dragged me inside this small burning house. He pushed me down to the
floor while handing me the fire hose. He yelled into my ear, "Now! Put the wet
stuff, on the red stuff, don’t be scared, I am right behind you!” We crawled
inside, it was damp, steamy, and we couldn’t see anything because of all the
smoke. Then for a brief moment the smoke suddenly lifted from the floor and we
could see the flames. It was the most beautiful sight I had ever seen. Just
before I opened the nozzle to extinguish the flames, a burst of hot air rushed
towards us, and flames rolled over our heads. It was at that moment, I was
hooked. What happened in only a few moments roped me into years of these amazing
it's not a great place to be right now. Political instability, economy
breakdown...Oh, and the return of that Daedric Prince, Molag Bal, and
his attempts to pull all living beings into his realm of Coldharbour;
yeah, things are looking pretty bleak!
Enjin, we understand that even the mightiest of adventurers sometimes
need a helping hand. That's why we can provide your Elder Scrolls Online
guild with everything it needs to bring stability back to the torn
continent of Tamriel - and in epic style, we might add!
My guild noticed that a lot of the "bugged" quest bosses were simply because the instanced boss wasnt left alone long enough to respawn. We found that if everyone in the room left and waited a minute or three before entering again, it worked.
I was under the impression that this wasn't the full game, this was an old version of the game. They bugs and glitches are already fixed in the newest/full game and has been thoroughly tested. The beta is simply to test the serverload/servers.
lisbeth you should be a writer for the forum. alot of your forum posts could be expanded a bit more and fit the role i enjoy reading your posts they are helpful and clear when trying to understand them
I love midnight lines for a new game. only have done it once and it was for Assassins creed and my next will be for destiny. Amazing crowd of people who all share a interest and you can talk to while you wait to finally pay at the one only....
I've only ordered the l33t edition once for an xbox game. I got a card game and a coin to flip for it. I'll never order something with physical content again lol. I prefer ingame content and perhaps a huge map of the battlefield.
