((hey there peeps, I hope I have everything done correctly!))

1. Character Name (this will be your name on the site and forums):* Jen'doon

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

2b. Advanced Class (if decided):* Consular Sage (healer)

3. Please describe your knowledge of Star Wars? The more detailed the better, please: *

Well, if I told you I can write sithic, the language of the sith would that go a long way to showing my knowledge? Wink . I've seen the movies so many times I can speak their dialogue line for line. I've read almost every starwars book written and I've ever written a few SW tales myself (fanfic). When you find yourself in a pub discussing the morality of people having the epic power of the force, and what that implies to ethics and personal responsibility, yeah you know you're an uber Starwars geek.

I been a fan for over 25 years, not sure what else I can say.

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): JEDL (I left because the game is dying, due to be shut down Dec this year)
-Game: SWG
-Name: Jen'doon
-Level:90
-Server: Bria
-Class:Jedi
-Race:human


5. What type of role do you wish to take within the guild? How do you plan to be active? Please be specific.*

Well in SWG JEDL I was a leader for 2 years of the 2 years 3 months I was a member, so I do have alot of leadership experience in MMO's, but to be honest I only stepped up because I was asked. I don't really have a strong desire to lead but what I find is that I tend to take on the duties of a leader naturally by doing events, roleplay and recruitment. I like to work things out and share my findings, so writing guides is another habit of mine, which lends itself again to leadership/teaching.

I am also very active online, and I type at about 1 zillion words a minute, so expect me to be very active on the website.

6. Why do you feel the Army of Light is a good fit for you?*

I judge a guild by it's leaders so it's from that I base this answer. I don't ask for much from a guild leadership except the following.

The be active and involved in all levels of the guild.
They don't asked for anything from members they don't do themselves.
They have an open door policy and respect each and every member, understanding without them, they are nothing.

From what I can gather, AOL does all of this.


7. What do you expect of the guild? Please be specific.*

Aside from the above?

I expect exactly what I'd contribute. Active friendly and motivated members, ideas and energy and a strong commitment to community. You can't ask for anything you aren't prepared to give.


8. Age* (Must be 16+): 32 (too old to begin the training...yes yes...)

9. Time Zone:* GMT

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.*

Roleplay should have consequences, but if it's too hard core it can be stifled. I love RP that is intelligent, exciting and fun but is also logical. No point having my Jedi at a fancy dress party.
Very Happy

I did a rather epic 3 part event whilst in SWG where I faked my characters death. It took several hours of prep to set up the story tokens, and even more laying the foundations using roleplay and emails in game, which were IC. Many people actually though I'd killed off my character and sent me OOC tells asking "why!". To show my dedication to the process I changed the name of my toon, redid his appearance and spent 3 months incognito trying to "solve" his murder.



here are some pics.

My old padawan Ranel rushes past some gaurds to try and save me.



Too late, I'm one with the force....sort of.



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?*

Well I'm rather good at writing in general, having run my student newspaper and been an avid fiction writer since my early teens, so that is a skill for any RP based guild, or a currently recruiting one.

I'm a dedicated roleplayer, and I think I understand and know more about the Jedi and sith than anyone I've ever met, so I can bring that knowledge to the guild in the form of events, classes and general assistance not to mention being a leading roleplayer.

I'm a good website moderator, having moderated on various websites for years. There is an art to telling someone to stop being rude in such a way you don't upset them even more. It's all about charm and understanding their issues.



12. How do you define a quality member?*

One who gives about twice as much as they ask for. Someone who has high morals, and works hard in whatever way they find fun for the guild. It's also a plus if they have an excellent sense of humour and anti troll/flame powers.


13. How did you find the Army of Light? Did someone recruit you? If so, please let us know who.*

SWTOR website.

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 have read them, and they make good sense to me, good common sense.

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

I'll kill a field of sith to uphold such noble ideals, yes sir indeed.

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 wouldn't be taking the time to fill out this rather lengthy and well written app if I wasn't.
Wink

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.*

Ah, I don't want to blow my own trumpet too much. As my dear old Grandad used to say "your horn sounds best tooted by someone else". I feel the qualities your guild has taken as it's basis, are very basic human qualities. I work in care, supporting adults who have autism and you can't really be a good support worker without all these qualities and more.

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?

Most recent? Hmm, I called an ambulance for a women a few weeks ago when she fell over right in front of my at a bus stop. She'd been jogging and had clearly exhausted herself. She fell, face down onto the ground and sort of starting shaking. I am a trained first aider, so I checked she was ok (no broken bones) and gently helped her get up and sit down. Her eyes were unfocussed and she couldn't control her arms so I called an ambulance and stayed with her til it arrived. By the time it did she was ok, and I looked like a right idiot. Still, she was very nice and I got her phone number!

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'd lead my team around the camp, avoiding the sith. My mission is the most important goal. We'd take out the relay from the opposite direction of the sith camp, so we could escape afterwars with the highest chance of having never been seen by them. Chances are, they'd not get to the relay before we'd completed our mission and vanished, leaving them to stare in confusion at the wreckage.

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!)*

Oh I don't really like prattling on about myself, how boring! I suppose you'd say I was a creative sort of chap. I play lots of instruments, so music is very important to me. I have a quite calm personality, given my very stressful job, it helps to be relaxed and considerate. I have a very dry dark sense of humour, which being Scottish verges on mildly sarcastic, but it's all in jest.

I'm a gentleman rogue magician.
Very Happy

19. Tell us a little about your in-game character*
-Character Name: Jen'doon
-Character Physical/Mental Features: tall, dark hair and pale skin. Very observant, a natural investigator.
-Character Biography:

Spent his early childhood and teenage years on Naboo, totally ignorant
of his Jedi heritage. He graduated from univercity with honours and
became a research student for the historical artifacts department. From
the age of 18-19 he spent a very intensive hear travelling the galaxy,
researching mystical and historical locations for the Uni.

It was during this time he began to open up the force power within him in a
very natural way. Being sent out alone to research old mystical sites,
he would often have to use instinct to locate the places and his
uncanny ability to convince people to give up information. It was this
pressure and strong need, combined with spending weeks at a time in some
of the most powerful force energy locations around the galaxy, that
triggered the seed of Jen's awareness. After a chance meeting with a
Jedi sentinel on Dathomir whilst investigating the witches there, he
learned about the origins of his name and went to Dorin to discover
more.

After some intial inquiries he was directed towards the
Baron Do temples. They were not very open about speaking with him, but
he persisted and, as was his manner, mananged to convince some of the
low ranked sages to get him an audience with one of the Masters. After a
weeks work, this happened and Jen met with a Baron Do record keeper who
knew more about him, and his family history than Jen had ever dreamed.

The old Sage advised Jen to spend a few months studying with him and then
arranged for a shuttle to Tython (during his stay on Dorin the temple on
coruscant was sacked).

20. What is your registered user name on swtor.com?* (Please note that you should have applied at our Guild HQ as a part of this Application process by this point.) Jendoon

I'm curious about that, though I've always been told it's buggy and not yet properly playable. Would be fun to see the game in it's more complex glory days.

Whenever I hear the words "plymouth rock" I think of Fallout 3, and the song that mentions that place. Classic.
