Charter Company Name: The Bloody Hand
Nation Name: Empire of Xeilias
Settlement Name: Golgotha
Alignments: Neutral Evil
Pax Gaming Membership Status: Recommended
Role: Assassinations, POI raiding, and general mayhem
Voice chat: Team Speak. Use is Mandatory.

Leadership:
The Bloody Hand is a dictatorship with a small advisory council. Large decisions will be presented to members to voice their opinion on but all final decisions are made by the Grand Master of the order.

Player Roles Accepted:
We are a strictly militant order. We do not accept those who are primarily harvesters or craftsmen.

Ideology:
We stand as an Order of warriors, thieves, assassins and evil clerics. Members will be expected to kill, and kill frequently. We live in the shadows of Golgotha. We take from those we can and complete our assigned contracts without mercy. We are the hidden blade of the state.

Who Should Join:
Assassins and raiders act as a massive force multiplier. One dagger sliding along the neck of a king can send a kingdom into turmoil. A small group of raiders can cause cities to starve and industry to grind to a halt. A cabal of necromancers razing undead can spread chaos and disorder to an enemy's lands. Anyone interested in having this level of impact on the river kingdoms will find a welcoming home in The Order of the Bloody Hand.

The Companies Contribution to Golgotha:
During times of conflict The Order will be deployed into the enemies home territory to assassinate their leaders and wreak havoc on their supply lines. We will bring the enemy to the brink of starvation and chaos before our main armies even begin to fight.
During times of peace we will accept contracts for multiple types of wet work. Assassination contracts, caravan ambushes and POI harvesting of a more aggressive nature just to name a few. This work during peace time will swell our coffers and hone our skills for when the State calls upon us again.

I would like to learn more about the skills/traits available to each alignment. 

Will there be any benefit to being LN, such as walking into more settlements and learning more skills?

Have they made a list of special skills for LG, LN, and LE etc. or are they still working all of that out?

Again, given the smaller company and niche crowd they're catering to (think Eve Online when it first came out), they are, at least for the 18 months of EE, going to be running with minimum viable product.  That means they will work on the most crucial items first, then work their way to more detailed, corner case content as they go.

I doubt any alignment specific skills will be out at the very beginning.  Though the game is skill based, there will be archetypes (think the common classes in a typical RPG).  The starting four will be Fighter, Rogue, Cleric, and Wizard.  Many of the more specialized "classes" that will come later, such as a Paladin, will have many of the same basic fighter skills to begin with, so skills attained before the more alignment specific "classes" arrive will not be wasted.  since there is no skill cap (like there was in UO), you can't actually have "wasted" skills, just more diversity of skills when new offered skills come into game.

They have talked about alignment or even deity specific cleric skills/spells, obviously skills that only alignment based "classes" like Paladins and Assassins would use, etc.

At the beginning of EE, they have talked about having Alignment and even possibly Reputation turned off so that they can test certain game mechanics without people worrying that their Alignment or Reputation would get significantly changed by needed testing behavior (e.g. your Alignment swings from LG to CE because you keep helping test combat by attacking people in "unsanctioned" PvP).

When all those mechanics are up and running, they have always said that determining another person's Alignment is going to be tough to do, so it should be possible for people who are not exactly in the Alignment range of a player settlement to walk in unmolested.  we'll see.  Personally, I think they'll find that if its too constricting on play, Alignment may get watered down a bit, and left more to RP (where I would rather have it).

We'll have to talk, since I can't post what I want to on here. I have been brainstorming and consulting with my inner Corin. What does lawful evil mean to me. Lets just say that when I told Jazzy what my idea was, she was quite unsettled. I took that as a good sign.

I may not be the villan Golgatha wants, but I may be the one it deserves. Muhahaha!

Okay, Marek...so I'm ready to be "unsettled". 

will you be on Ventrilo tonight?  I'm giving over my computer to my son until probably 10 pm EST (about an hour from now).  The Gideon Night in me would be happy to chat about your dark and sinister plans.

You PvPers need to read/watch this newest blog/vlog...they've added a new feature to the game for EE to keep us busy with possible PvP while we wait for full settlements to come in. (https://goblinworks.com/blog/war-of-towers/)

Looks like good stuff.

If you stop over at the Land Rush map https://goblinworks.com/landrush/, today's changes to settlement locations are now in.  If you click the green tab at the top left ("control overlay") it will turn off the settlement icons and show the settlement hex letters (easier to find things).

Golgotha is at "W" and negotiations with another PvP oriented, potentially evil alignment group have paid off to place them in "AA", just to the northeast.

We have the Northern Coalition - a non-aggression pact - between settlements at "I", "X", "AA" and "W", as well as the white horse head with the blue/white background just east of "I" (that's Callambea...they won their spot already in the first Land Rush).

To the east of all those settlements is the first starter town in the game, Thorn Keep, so we will basically be controlling all travel passing out of the starter town on the main road.  Good for trade, for catching new players venturing into the world, etc.

I took the plunge and got my EE account, which gives me 2nd month access.   

Do I need to fill out an application to be a member of the PAX forums, or just wing it as a guest for now? 

Also, the "apply" button on the Golgotha guild page is for our vote for the land rush, correct?
