[ADHOC] – An NA Merchant Guild for War of the Gods

Recommended Posts

Artisan Development House of Crafting

ADHoC is focusing on maximizing gathering, crafting and merchant possibilities to influence, optimize, and ultimately, tip the scales of battle in the War of the Gods.  We intend to be a resource that our clients can rely on – whether it’s tools & potions, food & drink or armor & weapons.  We are looking for those who want to develop their wealth & well-being by helping to produce the best gear & goods available.

It will take time to become a high-level Artisan in any field; however, there is work to do in the meantime.  It will still be necessary for us to acquire & accumulate materials to produce the highest level of equipment our training will allow.  We are looking for players who would like to gather for our House. 

Whether you’re fully seasoned in knowledge, or still need some salt  😃 you are welcome!  This seemingly menial task has great importance.  It is where all victories in battle are born.  Should you choose to take on this responsibility, you will be the first to wear and bear its fruit.  Of necessity, we will grow from the inside out, constantly upgrading our equipment as our artisanal skills improve.  A major reason for this follows.

As the War of the Gods strikes the land with full force, Caravans will be a major source of rich materials.  As such we must be prepared to defend ourselves at all costs as we navigate our trails.  We are inviting players to become members of The Artisan Guard – affectionately known as TAG.  A different skill set is required here – one of sheer martial excellence in unadulterated combat. 

TAG teams will not only cover our own caravans but will assist other guilds who do not have dedicated protectors.  If our clients are attacked, we will move from the shadows to counter-attack and execute.  We are merchants, not mercenaries, but we do not shy away from a fight or a call for help.  As we grow, these activities will obviously extend into assisting in the defense of keeps & forts.

If the order & balance of activities (no pun intended) seems right for you, simply reply below and/or friend Zem#2554 (on Discord) to expedite an invite.  We need to assemble our teams and practice our skills now so everyone is organized come War of the Gods.  Look forward to hearing from you.

@yianni Why would a brand new or developing community be fishy in an environment that is still hasn't been released and is attracting new players all the time?  You know me Yianni.  We have fought.  This is where I see we are lacking as a total community.  Harvesting and crafting are the backbone of the Crowfall and I want to participate more strongly developing that side of things.  This is a new account to attract players who think the same way.

I wouldn't let that be the barometer of authenticity.  Players are looking around and the community isn't fully established yet.  Many are simply awaiting the wipe and War of the Gods.  But good looking out.  It's appreciated.  😇

What would be the difference in this guild vs any other normal guild?

You will still have to have combat members to protect your harvesters, escort your pack pig caravan and take keeps with crafting tables, while every other guild will have harvesters and crafters to supply their combat members.

Who would your target clientele (people you intend to craft for) be? Guildless players? Anyone in a guild will most certainly just deal with their own guilds crafters. As neat as it may sound, there is no avenue to craft for the general population outside your guild because guilds have their own harvesters & crafters.

I dunno, I could see possibilities with this. What if you are a small guild and don't have all the crafts covered? There will be room for many different types of playstyles, I think it can work. Not all guilds are mega guilds with tons of accounts and crafters to cover every need. If I ran a small guild, I'd probably have my members focus on gathering materials and then seek out experienced craftspeople to actually make at least some items; the crafting part is actually a lot harder to get skilled at than the gathering part.

Just my 2 bits. Good luck!

@ToadwartThe difference is subtle I agree ... but it is there nonetheless. 

  • We offer a platform for those - who may not be ready to enter PvP - to land and participate.  Harvesting, crafting and building a mercantile empire may be attractive to many who have been successful in that role in other lands of adventure. 
  • There will be no inherent, unspoken obligation to PvP if that's not desired.  That can be off-putting to many ... and the community as a whole simply barks "It's a PvP game!" at these individuals in the hope to maximize participation in battle.  The community is not wrong, but often has little patience for those "still in development."  Some players want to take their time, operate a little slower and learn the environment.
  • If I had a guild interface, the increasing level of participation would be Harvester > Crafter > Guardian (caravans) > Defender (forts & keeps) > Warrior (sieges).  No one has to feel obligated to participate at a level they don't wish to.  And yes, that is absolutely true right now ... however, that's not how our community presents itself many times. 

I believe the company has already seen this ... hence God's Reach ... and the incoming newer ways to participate.  We're just focusing and formalizing on that theme.
