Quick Note: To make a recruitment application to the Brotherhood of Change please scroll to the bottom of the post. Once you make the application we will organize a time to get together on the tribe's Ventrilo server and have a casual chat.
Recruitment Status: OPEN
Time Zone: The Brotherhood of Change will be an International Tribe and applicants from all over the world are welcome. We currently have members from Australia, Europe and The United States.
Birth of the Brotherhood
During the time of the Apocalypse war ravaged the land. A world built on the foundations of technology had collapsed upon itself and the greed and carelessness of Humanity had brought about its demise.
From the embers and ashes of a scorched and ruined planet emerged the Brotherhood of Change. Having survived the chaos of the Apocalypse, the Brotherhood was formed in the belief that Humanities downfall was the catastrophic result of our own ignorance and defiance of the natural order. The Apocalypse like all things happened for a reason and it is now our task to rebuild our shattered world, change as a species and through evolution, succeed.
The Council of Brothers
The governing body within the Brotherhood of Change is called the Council of Brothers. It is formed by five Enclaves, each consisting of two Lectors and charged with governing certain aspects of the Tribe. The five Enclaves and their responsibilities within the tribe are;
Internal Affairs: The Internal Affairs Enclave governs guidance of new players. They also govern tribe laws and the rights of tribe members; as such the Internal Affairs Enclave also deal with disputes and grievances within the tribe.
Military: The Military Enclave governs military defence and offence. They command the tribe’s fighters and are in charge of organising Internal and External military operations.
Resource Management: The Resource Management Enclave governs the accumulation and distribution of tribe resources. They handle tribe contributions and oversee the utilization of tribe resources.
Expansion: The Expansion Enclave governs building construction, inter-tribe diplomacy and oversees the management of land. They work closely with Resource Management to moderate resource distribution for building and expanding.
Economic: The Economic Enclave is responsible for Internal and External trade relations as well as assigning Crafting positions and works closely with Resource Management to moderate resource distribution to Crafters.
In addition to these five Enclaves there is a Grand Lector. Elected from the ten Council members, the Grand Lector is the Tribe Leader and plays a vital role in all important issues and decisions within the Tribe. If at any time another Lector or tribe member does not agree with how something is done, he can call for the council to vote among the Lectors on the matter.
Every month there will be an election in which the Lector may vote to keep or change the Grand Lector and any tribe members who has gained sufficient rank may nominate themselves as a candidate to become one of the ten Lectors. This allows the players within the tribe to truly progress within it and rewards players for hard work and dedication.
The Democratic, Council structure within the Brotherhood of Change allows for the delegation of duties between tribe members. Not only does this reduces the individual responsibilities of the Tribe Leader but also involves other members in the decision making process and allows the Brotherhood a more unified structure.
The ideals of the Brotherhood of Change
The core ideals of the Brotherhood are Unity and Expansion. We will succeed in all endeavors we undertake and any field that our members wish to pursue is accepted and encouraged. The Brotherhood prides itself on loyalty, honestly and respect between tribe members.
Tribe members are free to decide how they wish to progress their characters and are free to pursue any and all aspects of the game they wish to.
It is, however encouraged, that there be at least one member within the tribe who is skilled in each different Crafting area. This allows the tribe a certain level of self sufficiency and allows the Brotherhood to flourish.
Alignment of the Brotherhood of Change
The Brotherhood of Change as a whole will be Lawful Neutral. We will have enemies just as we will have allies, we will wage war when necessary and fight to the death, likewise we make peace when appropriate to our ends and honor our agreements. We have our own laws that are followed within the tribe and our lands.
The Cult of Change
Within the Brotherhood of Change there also exists a subgroup known as the Cult of Change. The Cult of Change is a radical group who take the beliefs of the Brotherhood a step further. They believe that the Apocalypse was the wrath of the gods who saw Humanity as weak and attempted to wipe them from the Earth. But Humanity like cockroaches, survived.
The Cult believe that through finishing the work of the gods, and ridding the world of those they deemed unworthy they will be blessed and ascend, or evolve, to a state of physical enlightenment.

Disclaimer: Joining the Cult of Change is an entirely optional part of the Brotherhood of Change. Those who join the Cult of Change are still regular members of the Brotherhood; they will simply have access to certain privileges within the Cult but will also be expected to maintain a mild level of character in regards to their actions in game as applicable to the Cults ethos. Role-playing is also greatly encouraged within the Cult of Change and allows for an interesting game play experience for those who wish to pursue it.

Joining the Brotherhood
The Brotherhood of Change is currently accepting membership applications through our tribe forums. We will be looking for members to fill the Lector positions as well as players who just wish to be regular tribesmen. The position of Grand Lector and Tribe leader will be voted on upon the official release of Xsyon and once all the Lector positions have been filled. This will ensure that members have a chance to get to know one and another before a Tribe Leader is elected.

We currently have a tribe Ventrilo server and forums the tribes home page is currently being developed.
