Character Sheet
Name: Gole Liath
Advanced Class: Shadow
RP Title: Jedi Knight

PostSubject: Gole Liath's Application (Approved)   Wed May 04, 2011 11:21 pm

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



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


3. Please describe your knowledge of Star Wars? The more detailed the better, please: *
I consider myself "somewhat knowledgeable" of Star Wars. I've watched the movies tons of times each (5-6), and read a lot of the books. I've read everything in the New Jedi Order, and have read all of the Old Republic books and Darth Bane books.


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): Strangers & Exiles, DIAF
-Game: WoW
-Name: Golaith, Gollaith, Goleith


-Level: 85, 84, 63
-Server: Lightning's Blade
-Class: Paladin, Druid, Priest
-Race: Blood Elf, Tauren, Goblin


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


In my guild I am a Officer and Raid leader. I came into MMO's relatively late (WoW was my first), and have only played for about a year and a half. I was brought in by real life (RL) friends, and brought up to speed for an end content raiding guild quickly. I was only able to progress so quickly (about 4 months) because they had all been playing for years, and were willing to give me their time and experience. Everyone was helpful and willing to take the time to bring me along, and now I play a similar role with our new players. This is the kind of role I am looking for in the guild: someone that can be brought up to speed (although I'll be in the same learning curve as the rest of the guild this time), and then help bring others up. I believe this is the best way to build and keep a strong guild.

6. Why do you feel the
Army of Light is a good fit for you?*
I really liked everything that I saw about how the guild expects everyone to toe their own weight. Everyone contributes, everyone prospers. I consider myself a dedicated guildie, and competent raider, and I believe that Army of Light will surround me with the same class of player.



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


I expect everyone to take the game and our responsibilities to the guild seriously. I expect everyone to work as hard as their individual abilities allow, and for the rest of us to be willing to help others and the guild be successful. I expect to be able to earn priviliges, and be given my shot when I prove what I can be do. I would like a solid environment to level, PvE, and raid, with others who wish to RP in a SW environment.

8. Age* (Must be 16+ - only truly exceptional Applications from sub-16 year olds will be considered):


38: July 31, 1972

9. Time Zone:*
EST: Baltimore, MD


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.*
My current guild is semi-casual. We all try to keep to toon names and such while raiding, but that's about it. As a RenFest fan that dresses up, I usually remain in character. As a member of Army of Light, I would like to be able to "be" a Jedi the only way I'm able. At least 'til we start to feel the force and invent lightsabers... Wink


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?*


As explained above, I believe in learning the game, and passing on the skills and experiences. As a former Marine, I know what it means to be a leader, and meet responsibility. I have excellent MMORPG and RL administrative skills, and possess fairly good MMORPG end game raiding skills.

12. How do you define a quality member?*
To me a quality member is one that expects to bring at least as much to the guild as they would like to take from it.


13. How did you find the
Army of Light? Did someone recruit you? If so, please let us know who.*
On the SWtoR forums, the guild is very verbal, and I like what everyone had to say.



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 read through many of the forums, both stickies and threads, and could not find a Charter or Mission statement.

I did find Chat and Vent Rules of Conduct though, and agree to follow them.


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


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?
Yes



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 my best to embody the qualities of Respect, Honor, Loyalty, and Maturity.

Respect - I think the simplest explanation of this is "do unto others". While I believe that we should always respect others in our words and actions, it is both something simply given and lost. It is very easy to respect others as we would hope they do to us, and we must always be mindful to EARN that respect in turn. If you cannot treat others well, why would they you?

Honor - Always think of others first. If you choose to honor others, you should do it for no other reason than you believe it is a basic tenet of life. If you expect others to honor you, perhaps you do not understand the definition. If you live your life to a standard that means not always doing what is easy, but doing what is right, then you understand the definition. There is a saying I read in a SciFi book while in high school (and yup, that's a ways back for me): Est solorus oth mithas. (Any real Dragonlance fans, forgive me if I misspelled it, I INTENTIONALLY didn't look it up. That'd be cheating) "My honor is my life". If I didn't wish to embody that, I'd be planning on rolling a Sith.

Loyalty - I believe the strongest measure of loyalty is the perseverance to make the right decision by others and hold to it. When you give your word to someone or a cause, you keep it at all costs. If a friend needs something, you give it. If you can't, you find another way to help. Also, others giving their loyalty to you is also a great responsibility, often a harder burden than staying steadfast as a follower. The loyalty given to a leader is a difficult cross to bear, and the most rewarding.

Maturity - Act as a grown up? If there is a scheduled raid, be there. Be early, be prepared. If I'm supposed to be leading an effort, be helpful, control my temper, keep a good positive attitude. Don't be easily frustrated by those that need more help, DO be the example whenever possible.


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?


Sometimes it's the simple things. I'm a big "sweat equity" person, and try to be a "do it yourself-er". A couple of weeks ago I ran to home depot to get some supplies, and was walking out with my cart when I saw an older gentleman trying to load several sheets of drywall into his truck with his youngish helper (15ish, grandson??). All I did was help them load several sheets, and it only took 3 minutes out of my life. The best reward was hearing him say to the younger boy "now, remember that someone shouldn't have to ask for you to help them".


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?



If I recall the lore from the Old Republic site, and the teachings from Grand Master Skywalker in the books I've read, while Sith are our enemy we do not always try to kill them on sight. Also, this would most likely be a treaty violation, and initiating combat for the sole purpose of an attack would not be the way of a Jedi and could lead to the Dark Side.

However, if we look at this scenario from the perspective that I believe that SWtoR will be running battles, then the most important thing is the mission. I would try to do a reasonable recon of the area, to determine if we could make it to the comms relay without alerting the Sith. I would remind our team that not every interaction with Sith is the time and place for a battle, and that our objective is the most important. There are people counting on us to take down that comms relay, and if anything we do that deters us from that path could jeopardize our mission. When one of the younger (and inevitably more hot headed) Padawans brings up the point of them coming in support of the relay station, I would only remind them that we have a job to do, and we must trust in the Force to guide us if that happens.

I would then lead my team to the comms relay, and trust in the force to make our mission a success.


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 someone that has been fortunate to have seen and done many different things in my life. I have, at different times in my life, been a choir boy, band geek, Eagle Scout, U.S. Marine, and an avid Harley-Davidson enthusiast. I am described often by others as a geek in wolf's clothing, because it's not unusual to see some SciFi book in the saddlebags of my Harley. I think the most important thing to be is true to oneself and those close to you. A man's word is his bond, and once broken is extremely hard to re-forge.


19. Tell us a little about your in-game character*
-Character Name: Gole Liath
-Character Physical/Mental Features: 181cm tall and weighs 84 kg. Black hair with some white starting to come in through the temples, and in his beard. Brown eyes reveal a direct, intelligent gaze.
-Character Biography: Gole Liath was born to a middle class Coruscant family in a solid working class family. Raised to believe in education from an early age, he excelled in
his classes with little effort, and soon found himself bored. More drawn to a close knit group of friends, he nonetheless continued on to university. Although he never found studies difficult, it was a far more relaxed environment, and his attention wandered to females and the finer vintages of Corellian Brandy.


Realizing that although his family was paying his way through his education, he needed more time to graduate. Deciding to end his burden on his parents, he enlisted in the Republic Army. During his tour, he noticed that he excelled in areas where he had no experience, and often graduated in the tops of his classes on tactics and leadership. Most importantly, service matured him, and taught him the value of hard work, challenge, and success.

After his tour ended, he returned to civilian life, where he completed his education in Computer Forensics and Xenoinformatics. While working on AI systems, he was called to work on computer systems in the Jedi Temple. Watching lightsaber training, he made some chance remarks on the sparring session, comments that the supervising Master found strangely insightful. After testing and careful consideration, he now begins his training and path in the force.
