This document should be read and understood by all guild members. Any all questions should be directed to an officer or leader of Kabal.
The Guild Leaders reserve the right to make changes or exceptions to these rules at any time.
Kabal was originally established as a Guild Wars guild in 2007. Since then Kabal has spread across multiple games and become a more general gaming community. Kabal has had members and chapters in games ranging from MMOs like Runes of Magic, Lord of the Rings Online, DC Universe Online, Rift and the original Guild Wars to competitive/cooperative games such as Left 4 Dead, Team Fortress, Dungeon Defenders, League of Legends, DOTA2, and Minecraft.
Our main focus is to promote friendship, fellowship and synergy between members and the guild, rather than the pursuit of progression and loot.
Although Kabal is a laid-back guild, we have some expectations for our members’ behavior. These rules are important in maintaining order and goodwill among our members, as well as our external guild image.
If you witness another member of Kabal breaking a rule, bring it to the attention of an officer or leader.
Don’t be a jackass…
It is expected that all members of Kabal treat their fellow members with respect. Respect - the objective, unbiased consideration and regard for the rights, values, beliefs and property of all people.
Do not beg or ask for money and items from anyone (unless you are willing to pay).
Do not repeatedly spam any public channel, whether in a game or on Vent.
Do not create or contribute to a dispute in guild, alliance, or public chats. Disputes and arguments should be handled privately and in a civilized manner. If a conflict cannot be handled in this manner, an officer or leader should be sought out to mediate the dispute.
When using a channel or voice server shared by other guilds, keep their own Codes of Conduct in mind. Not everyone is as strict/relaxed as we are.
No cheating of any kind will be tolerated. This includes (but is not limited to) exploiting and scamming. If you are unsure if an action may be considered as such, find an officer or leader and ask.
Profanity and adult-oriented topics are tolerated. However, this does not mean that guild channels should become saturated with either.
If someone finds a topic in a public channel to be offensive, respect your fellow member and move the conversation to a private channel.
Depending on the severity of the offense, members that violate one of the guild rules may be given a warning. If a repeat infraction occurs, the member will be removed from the guild. Recruits will not be given a warning.
Members will be kicked from guild after 60 days of inactivity if no notice is given, 90 days if notice is given.
Recruits/Peons will be kicked from guild after 2 weeks of inactivity if no notice is given, 60 days if notice is given.
Please note that Kabal is an adult guild in which adult conversation take place; therefore we do prefer members to be over the age of 17. Members under this limit are expected to act accordingly and to be respectful of other members of the guild.
While an extensive knowledge of the game is not required, Kabal members should be willing to learn as well as teach. By helping others we help ourselves and build the guild as a whole.
Kabal does make use of ventrilo and other chat/community platforms such as Google Hangouts. While it is not required to use these programs , it can help you while doing runs and keeping in touch with extra-game members.
While progress is a goal for Kabal, it is not the ultimate goal. If you are looking for a quick progression guild or access to high level loot, Kabal might not be the guild for you. If you are looking for a way to improve your skills and develop as a player, Kabal will welcome you with open arms.
