Character Sheet
Name: Rannek Sturm
Advanced Class: Smuggler
RP Title: 4

PostSubject: Rannek Sturm's Application (Approved)   Sat Jun 11, 2011 7:15 pm

1. Character Name (this will be your name on the site and forums):* Rannek Sturm

2a. Primary Class (Jedi Consular, Jedi Knight, Smuggler, or Trooper): Smuggler

2b. Advanced Class (if decided): Scoundrel, with the majority of my points into Sawbones

3. Please describe your knowledge of Star Wars? The more detailed the better, please: Other than the obvious "I've seen the movies" description, I've also played both Knights of the Old Republic One and Two, so I am fairly familiar with the lore of the time period. I've also played Star Wars: Galaxies, and am therefore familiar with the majority of the planets that will be in Star Wars: The Old Republic.

4. Please tell us about your other guild/MMO experiences. If there is more than one guild/experience, please include all of them. If you left your last guild, please tell us why you decided to leave. If you have used more than one name, please list them all.*

Guild Name (Reason for leaving if applies): Bad Mister Frosty, left post-NGE for obvious reasons on good terms with all members as far as I'm aware. Obviously this guild has been broken up after Wanderhome was shut down.
-Game: Star Wars: Galaxies
-Name: Dreer
-Level: 68
-Server: Wanderhome
-Class: Medic -> Doctor
-Race: Mon Calamari

Guild Name (Reason for leaving if applies): Flaming Gauntlet, left post-Cataclysm due to the fact that the endgame had become boring, once again on good terms with members.
-Game: World of Warcraft
-Name: Dornan
-Level: 85
-Server: Earthen Ring
-Class: Priest
-Race: Dwarf

5. What type of role do you wish to take within the guild? How do you plan to be active? Please be specific.*
I am an avid roleplayer but mainly enjoy the social aspect a guild offers. I plan to remain active by participating on the forums when I cannot play and by participating in guild-sponsored or run events when I am online. I always love doing instances with other players or doing raids or battlegrounds.

6. Why do you feel the Army of Light is a good fit for you?*
I am not looking for a very hardcore PvP guild, but I am also not looking for a very casual maybe we'll PvE together guild. The Army of Light seems to cover all aspects I am looking for: RP, PvP, and PvE. It also appears very well organized, which is something I certainly respect. Basically I am looking for a social experience that covers PvE, PvP, and RP - all of which I am interested in.

7. What do you expect of the guild? Please be specific.*
As mentioned above, I am essentially looking for an active guild that has quality roleplayers and also organizes guild events. I want to be able to help newcomers to the guild or receive help from those above me. I want to be able to know that the person with whom I am fighting is reliable and good-natured.

8. Age* (Must be 16+): 17

9. Time Zone: EST

10.Role-Play experience/expectations. Can you give us some examples of Role-Playing you have participated in before. When it comes to expectations, give us an example of what would be fun to participate in, what you are looking for, etc.*
I roleplayed often on World of Warcraft and am familiar with both interpersonal noncombat roleplay and also with roleplaying a battle without godmodding or metagaming. I enjoyed both extensively and can fluently roleplay without issue as long as everyone acts in an in character manner. I would certainly enjoy some guild-sponsored overarching RP storylines when the game launches, but I can certainly satisfy myself with RP with other guild members.

11. How can you benefit and help the guild? Please include any skills or talents you have that you would
enjoy doing within the guild. How have you helped your previous guild(s), if you have previous experience?*

I have held previous leadership positions within guilds and consider myself extremely strong at organizing events. I have extensive experience in organizing and running RP events, including one-time events and also overarching storylines involving multiple events.

12. How do you define a quality member?*
A quality member is one who both offers to help other members and also asks other members for help when they need. A quality member presents to the community of a game the highest standard of membership for a guild.

13. How did you find the Army of Light? Did someone recruit you? If so, please let us know who.*
After realizing that SW:TOR might be the MMO I had been looking for since I quit WoW, I began scouring the forums for a guild that I could join and become familiar with pre-launch. I found the Army of Light.

14a.Have you visited our website and chat room, and familiarized yourself with the, Charter, Mission Statement, and Rules of Conduct? (You must answer in the affirmative and please prove that you have)*
I certainly have, and have discovered that although the guidelines are, for the most part, not too stringent, they are certainly fair. Essentially, members must: have respect and maturity, think before they speak and act, have tolerance for others, and be respectful of authority.

14b. Do you pledge to fulfill them, most notably to uphold the virtues of Maturity, Honor, Respect, Personal Ethics and No Drama?*
I do pledge to fulfill the rules and uphold such virtues.

14c. The Army of Light wishes to have members who take the concept of Commitment and Loyalty very seriously. By applying and if accepted, you are taking an Oath to both the guild and your guild-mates here. Is this something to which you can commit?
I can commit to this guild.

15. Would you say that you embody the qualities of Respect, Honor, Loyalty, and Maturity? What are your definitions of these four words? Please don’t just answer yes or no, let us know why you think you possess these qualities.*
I believe that I do contain all of these qualities (it's a good thing modesty isn't up there). To me, respect is not bowing down to others in all situations but instead duly considering their opinion on a matter and also trying your best to not offend them. Honor is playing by the rules - always considering your opponents to be human beings, they deserve a certain form of respect. Loyalty is self debt to an entity that has helped you in a manner that deserves your self debt. Maturity is acting in a manner that displays all of these qualities. I believe that I possess all of these because I'm fairly well-liked and have been in the past. I have several close friends that I am exceedingly loyal to.

16. Tell us about a time you offered assistance to someone who did not ask for it but clearly needed it. If you have never had this experience, tell us what you would do if faced with that situation?
The story I offer forward isn't particularly exciting. In our WoW guild there was a level 5 member who I befriended as soon as he joined. We had quite a lot in common and roleplayed together for about a month. When the friend reached level 38 he was unfortunately scammed due to no fault of his own and was considering retiring from the game completely - he had saved up money for the mount that he had been waiting for for 40 levels. He had also lost all of his equipment. In a dignified manner he told the guild that he would unfortunately stop playing due to the fact that he was left with next to nothing. As soon as he announced this publicly I bought the mount for him and offered a trade agreement without telling him what I was doing. It felt fantastic helping him in such a direct manner and later I found out that a few other members gave him a large amount of gold. I am still in contact with him, fortunately.

17. Role-play Scenario (please tell us how you would handle the situation): You are leading a group of 3 others through a forest on a remote moon to destroy an enemy communications relay. Up ahead in a clearing, you happen to spot a small Sith camp. Your group has not yet been spotted by the enemy. You are reasonably well supplied for your mission, including armaments. The clearing containing the Sith camp is not necessarily in your direct path to reach your original mission objective. Attacking the camp could alert the guards at the relay. However, attacking the relay without first dealing with the camp could mean enemy reinforcements from the camp. What do you do?
I would send my 3 teammates forward to scout the relay and determine the nature of the defenses there. If, due to their report, I believe that we cannot destroy the relay without alerting the camp, I, still at the camp, will destroy local communications devices in disguise so as to prevent personnel at the relay from communicating with those at the camp. If possible, for purposes of redundancy I will sabotage speeder bikes that the camp uses. At that point I will order my men to attack and monitor camp activity - if they retaliate, I can warn my compatriots and then move out to help them.

18. In more than 50 but less than 200 words, please describe your personal character and the type of person you are (We wish to get a good feel of the type of person that will be becoming a part
of our guild family - a very important question!)*

I am, primarily, a social butterfly. I love to meet new people and talk to them about anything going on in their life. Despite the fact that I am adept at making new connections with people, I also strengthen them with others. I believe that my friends would describe me first as loyal due to the fact that I will never back down when they are in need. I strongly believe in personal bonds between two people, and I believe that what I can most contribute is a very social player who also has the capacity to be a very close friend with near anybody.

19. Tell us a little about your in-game character*
Let this be noted that this is all under the assumption that I will be playing as a human. If a new playable race is announced that I find more attractive to my character, I hope that you understand if I change this later.
-Character Name: Rannek Sturm

-Character Physical/Mental Features: Rannek is a fairly wide man of bearlike build; his long shoulder width only reinforces his appearance. He has a few uncontrolled whiskers on his face but prides himself on his own cleanliness. He has short cut hair so as to avoid letting it interrupt his job. The man has soft and sympathetic blue eyes, the color of exceptionally cold ice. Usually Rannek wears a well-fit tunic and pants with a long leather duster. He is a viciously unfair fighter, groin-kicking and sand-throwing at every opportunity if necessary. Despite this, he is quite empathetic to those in need and serves worthily as a medic.

-Character Biography: Born in a slum of Coruscant, Rannek was raised with the constant rule of gangs and organized crime. He came to resent the arbitrary control of crime lords after the death of his father - killed by a bounty hunter for failure to pay a debt. He was, for the most part, left alone in his teens due to his already large size. Nevertheless he ended up joining a gang under monetary pressure. There he became skilled at the art of stealth and also became adept at sabotage - Rannek discovered his own ability to disguise himself as anybody. Eventually he discovered his other strength - his abilities with medicine. Rannek saw constant suffering in the slums and began to try his best to end it. Tutoring under an affluent doctor from a rich party of the planet, the future smuggler began to see how he could make a difference - by combining his two skills. When he was 18, Rannek stole a freighter from a crime lord, a swore he would never return to his home planet without medicinal supplies. Since then he has expanded his operation to dozens of other worlds, running free medical supplies to those in need and then administering treatment. Now, Rannek realises that he cannot save the unfortunate of the Republic by himself, and is attempting to serve against the Empire for the same purposes that he has fought before: protection of those who cannot defend themselves.

Heh, well said. I've always liked to play healers in games, so hopefully the Smuggler class has a very extensive skill tree into healing.

Greetings Rannek,

Your Application has been Approved.

Your next step upon the Path is to pass your Trial Membership.

You will need to:
- Post 15 meaningful posts on the Forums
- Post an Introduction of yourself (RP) on the Forums
- Create a registered Forums profile, complete with avatar and SW:TOR contact name
- Obtain an avatar for use in our Xat chats (primary room is our Citadel Chat)
- While in chat, make your name [AL]Recruit Rannek Sturm
- Re-familiarize yourself with the Guild Rules, with emphasis on Core Values and RP atmosphere
- Register with the guild on the SW:TOR site at http://www.swtor.com/guilds/5501/army-light


After you have been here a minimum of 1 week and have done all the aforementioned, you must then interview with myself to pass into Full Membership.

With that successfully completed, you will report to the acting Smuggler branch leader (Commander John Shepard) for general class branch training and to Generals Bren Durron or Vyynn Randos for Squadron/Platoon assignment. Squadrons will act as your home within your home and help acclimate you to guild life and try to answer any questions you may have.

You will also wish to visit these Forums frequently, as much of our information is passed through this medium including news, polls, debate, etc.

In addition, we foster an Open Door Policy here at The Army of Light. Should you ever have a question or difficulty, or simply need to talk over an issue, please send me a PM here on the Forums.

Best of luck to you.

Warmest regards,
High General Jephos Mispir
Founder of The Army of Light
