Clans: The Creation of Tao

Tao understands that people come to Aardwolf to have a good time, to relax, to get away from real life. With this in mind Tao offers a clan that doesn't require all members to be involved in everything. The clan is something for them to be a part of but not to the detriment of their enjoyment in their individual playing style, having to feel restricted by having to sit at levels, give all their gold or quest points, or have alignment requirements. Tao enables these people to join and be more of a part of the clan if they so choose.

The first steps within Tao are to have members gain an understanding of clans in general, and Tao specifically. We don't force our members to be involved, we don't force them to come to meetings, we don't force them to give us all their gold. But if they desire to be more involved they are welcomed to proceed onto further steps of Tao.

These further steps are the paths of Creativity and Self-Advancement. Progression further down the steps of Tao requires that members will have to show dedication to the clan and actually achieve something. Through creativity they are expected to make up descriptions for mobs/items/rooms for the clan and also offer the service of creating these for other people that are not part of the clan. Through self advancement they are expected to donate to the clan via gold and information on the world of Aardwolf.

Each member does not have to travel this far down the path, it is up to each individual, although there are incentives.

Recruitment

In order to join the clan a person will be required to first write a note to the clan, detailing a little about themselves, their character and why they would like to join. The person is then required to find people of the required rank to interview them, with 3 interviews being the minimum required. These 'interviews' are conducted to familiarise the interviewer with the applicant, for the applicant to see if they would fit with clan ideals and for the member to see if they feel the applicant will fit in. Applicants may have as many interviews as they wish, and the results shall be written up by the interviewer and posted to the clan for viewing. Leaders will open the vote for allowing the applicant to join after the third interview review has been posted. Applicants will be accepted after the number of votes is totaled, and positive notes equal to 75% or more of votes made. The applicant will be required to be level 600 or greater, and have 2 quests complete for every level gained (Campaigns count as 5 quests).

One more thing - we cannot accept character who have clanned alts. If you have an alt char, he/she cannot be clanned...if this is so, you will not be accepted to Tao.
