Guide and Rules
The CT is not your standard Silver Hand Blizzard paladin guild.
We think the 3 paladin virtues are flawed. We think that Uther was a
great man but misguided with his virtues. We RP that we are so good
it is almost evil. We follow our 5 virtues: Intolerance, Vigilance,
Faith, Zeal and Sufferance that our made up prophet, Saint Vladius Caormastus,
wrote down 300 years ago. We believe that the shadow is more powerful
than any mortal and the only way to truly cleanse the taint of evil
from a soul we must sent it to the Light. That means killing.
CT is a breakaway religion and is so wrapped up in its own beliefs that
it lacks reason and logic. Everything is for the Light. Every rule is
followed so strictly that it is at times detrimental to the Templares.
But that is true Faith, blind devotion that is so blind that a Templare
truly believes he can see everything because the Light’s wisdom
Unlike most other roleplaying guilds, one joins the CT to
RP the CT, not to be an RPer in an RP guild. As a CTer you must follow
the CT doctrine or risk getting kicked from the guild. Zealots and Fanatics
do not have a will entirely of their own will, for they are servants
of the Light.
No godmoding. Godmoding is a large subject. The best definition
I have heard is that godmoding is where one player uses RP to force
his will upon others. Remember, in RP you must act as a single person
in control of only your own actions. For example, let’s say
I wanted to stab a player named Bill in the back. If I typed “/e
stabs Bill in the back.” I just godmoded. Why? It is godmoding
because I caused something to happen to another player whether he
wanted it or not. What I should have typed was “/e tries to
stab Bill in the back”. This way I only say what I do and what
happens to my character. This way Bill can decided whether he wants
to get stabbed or not. He could answer “/e feels the dagger
go deep into his back and falls to his knees.” if he wants to
get stabbed, or he could emote “/e jumps out of the way and
draws his sword.” Another area of godmoding is where one player
says that someone in history or an NPC says or did something. You
are not in control of people Like Uther, the king of Stormwind, or
the Monks of the Abbey. Since you are not in control of them saying
things like you are the son of Uther, or king of Stormwind made you
a knight is right out of the question. Remember you can only say what
your character did or does.
If someone asks you to leave them alone OOCly, you must.
