I just stumbled upon this game a few days ago and am loving the possibilities so far. I've decided that I need to join a tribe to get the most out of Xsyon, so let me give you some information about who I am and what I'm looking for in a tribe.
I'm 26 years old and a fairly hardcore gamer. I'm also a writer, blogger, and an average HTML/CSS web designer.
What I'm Looking For
I suppose I'm looking for a Good or Neutral tribe. I haven't had a lot of time getting into the crafting or profession system, but chances are I'd prefer being on the combat side of things. This doesn't mean I need PvP or need to be out hunting for other players to kill. I'm not a fan of mindless PvP for the sake of it.
With that said, I'd love to help out with crafting as much as possible. If this means escorting crafters to and from resource locations, or lending a hand by carrying resources myself, I'm all for it.
While I understand that tribes may be selective about who they recruit, I'm selective about who I stick with. I like tribes that are organized but not micromanaged (e.g. large flow charts with specifically designated roles/ranks). I don't want to logon and be told that my job is to guard, and that's all I'm allowed to do.
The tribe I stick with also needs to have a decent backbone for communication such as a Ventrilo or Teamspeak server. Websites are well and good, but they aren't enough. Oh, and there is also the potential that I may be able to get a few of my friends to join me eventually, but that isn't certain.
Thanks for the replies. I've submitted an application to Hopi. As for the Dark Hand of Valor, I like the organization, but I'm not really looking for a multi-gaming guild environment for this game at this time. If that ever changes I'll let you know.
