Charter

As you enter this dark room, you can feel the presence of many large men. Your arms are grabbed and bound behind you and you are forced to take a seat. Three dim torches are lit on the far wall but it is still too dark for you to be able to see the men`s faces. One of the large men approaches you from the front and addresses you.

“So, you wanna join our ranks now do ya?? Well there are probably a few things you might wanna know before you make that important decision. So just listen and shut up until I’m done speaking, kapeesh? Now then, we are an organization who likes to take part in a bit of everything, whether it be thieving, sorcery or warfare, though we do like doing things inconspicuously when possible.”

“Now I’m going to explain a bit of our past and what we wish to accomplish through our actions. So keep quiet or things will happen that you won’t appreciate. We’ve existed for longer than you have, we’ve pretty much always been around in one form or another but this year we’re gonna do things a little more publicly. We follow the only true god. Darden is our patron and we shall do as he wishes, he is the only god who accepts what we do and we revere him for it.”

“Our guild lives to bring us prosperous times. We don’t care who doesn’t like it and we don’t care who tries to stop us, more often than not they become our dragon’s lunch if they ask to many questions. Hehe. That’s my personal favorite part of the day. Now then back to the subject. We live our lives and fight our wars for our own glory and for the glory of Darden, we don’t care about those whining heathens, let them suckle on their mother’s teat and stay out of our hair. Needless to say we aren’t the most patient bunch and if people start annoying us we’ll do something about it. We don’t take crap from anyone, anywhere at anytime.”

The man steps back and turns to a small table behind him. He picks up his glass of wine and finishes it taking his time. He then picks up his pipe and lights it. You almost get a glimpse of his face but it never happens. You can definitely tell that this man has done this type of recruiting before. He turns back to you.

“Now I hope you’re comfortable and that those ropes binding your hands aren’t too tight. You’re doing a good job being quiet so just keep it up. Like I was saying, if those damned heathens don’t like what we’re doing, we’ll just beat them till they’re blue in the face. We don’t always play by the rules, our wars may not always be fair, but I don’t care. Do you care? I didn’t think so. We like playing dirty and that will never stop. All for our own glory, remember? Good.”

“I don’t like to tell too much to the new guys, we gotta protect ourselves right? So if ya wanna join us let us know now, but remember, once you’re in there’s only one way out, and it ain’t pretty. So that’s all I’m willing to say, if you’re still here when we get back in about an hour we’ll know your decision and you’ll be escorted to our headquarters. Till then, take care.”

The large men put out the torches and untie your hands. They leave the room and you are alone. If you decide to stay they will return, if not then leave now and don’t come back.

History

This is the Mafia's first age in Canon.

Rules

You can become a member of The Mafia if you are invited by a current member of the guild and the GM approves. If you haven't been invited and you wish to join you may still become part of the guild if you follow the below guidelines.

*Be very active - logging into your kingdom at least once a day.
*Obey all rules – this includes guilds rules which can be found below and Temper’s Ball rules.
*You must email the GM and include this information

-Player name
-Realm name
-Why you think we should accept you
-How much time you are willing to devote to the game and boards
-Current game experience i.e. (How long you have been playing, past guilds etc)
-Contact information (email, ICQ, AIM, MSN)

Once the GM has reviewed your email, he will contact you on a messenger to discuss your application further, or if all is well you will be accepted once your email is reviewed.

If you apply without being invited or emailing the GM, your application will simply be denied.

A new member to The Mafia will be asked to read this charter completely until he or she understands it well and agrees to follow all rules.

ICQ/AIM or MSN is mandatory in the guild for communication purposes, any one of these will do, although most of the Canon community uses ICQ for game related things, so ICQ would be preferable.


Rules in The Mafia are pretty simple yet highly enforced. If you follow them you will be on the right path to promotion (more on promotions below). If a rule such as attacking a kingdom without permission is broken you will be immediately booted and forsaken to the enemy. But keep in mind attacking another kingdom without permission is not the only rule we punish this harshly to. Here are the rest of the rules, a description and a punishment to be handed out if the rule is broken.

*Be loyal to the guild - If you leave the guild without a good reason, you will be banished, never shall you be welcome to return, this rule is to prevent members from guild jumping to other guilds then returning.

*No cheating - If we find out you were cheating in any way, such as having two accounts, you will be booted and banned from the guild immediately without any warning.

*Be online for wars - If you cant make it to a war for any reason or plan on being late, contact the GM or AGM immediately telling him the reason why you won’t be attending. If you miss 2 wars you will be demoted and you will be warned, if you continue you will be booted, unless as previously stated you warn the GM or AGM of your absence or lateness.

Wars are announced on the guild banner, it is expected that you read the guild banner daily to keep up to date with current guild affairs.

Wars will generally be ran in IRC, it is a good idea that you get this program. You can get a IRC client from http://www.mirc.com

*Obey all Temper's Ball rules which can be found at the below URL:

http://www.evernight.com/evernight/site/boards/forumrules.shtml

1) Do not make an ass of yourself
2) Do not post bug reports on the boards, over ICQ, or in IRC, unless specifically asked to by staff.
3) Do not spam or post redundant messages.
4) Do not post kingdom numbers or kingdom names on the boards.
5) Pornography, piracy, or other illegal material is not allowed.
6) Do not post links or advertisements to hate or anti-Evernight sites. This includes racial, ethical, or sexually related sites.

Also obey all Guild forum rules:

a) Do not claim that threads are closed to the general public. As long as people are adding to the thread and not spamming or stalking then everyone is welcome in every thread.
b) No excessive vulgarity. As long as its part of the general post its acceptable, but when your swearing just to swear it will be edited.
c) No revealing Voice alts.
d) Do not post personal recruitment threads. There are faith threads created for that purpose.
e) Do not do anything that you or the Voice's think is unwarranted or in bad taste.
f) All posts in this forum are considered in character. If you would like to traditionally Role Play with your character please add (RP) or (RP Invite) for Role Play or Role Play Invite only to the end of your thread title.

Note: These are subject to change or be modified by Evernight staff, they are just a basic guideline.

As a result of one of these rules broken, you may be banned from Temper's Ball, or even banned from Evernight Games, you will be demoted immediately and reviewed by the GM and AGM to see whether or not you should be allowed to stay in the guild.

*If you leave for a few days let the GM or AGM know - Tell him how long you will be gone and when you will be back. It is useful to know this incase of wars and such. If you fail to report your absence you will be demoted temporarily and the GM or AGM will await your explanation. If something along the lines of being sick, having to leave in a hurry for something and other things like that, that is no problem, upon your return you will be given your previous rank.

*Read the guild banner – This is what you see below your kingdom information, higher members of the guild are able to edit this to add news for the entire guild to see. By reading this you will be able to find out when we are going to war and much more (All guild affairs). It is very important that every member reads this daily to keep up with the current status of the guild.

*Have fun - This is expected to be followed by everyone, this is a game, its purpose is fun and entertainment, I also like to see members with a good attitude, the rules are in place to be able to maintain a good functioning guild that poses a threat in the game. :)

As a member of The Mafia you are expected and required to follow and obey all these rules and guidelines.




The ranking format and system in The Mafia is simple. below describes the name and description of the rank.

(Boss) This is the GM of the guild, the leader and head of the family. He decides who gets made and who gets whacked. The boss also gets points from all family business; also see don, chairman. If at any time the GM disappears/dies/quits or is not running the guild correctly, members may vote on a new GM.

(Underboss) This is the AGM, second in command to the boss.

(Capo) This is a well trusted member, this rank makes up the bulk of the guild because being an invitation guild, most invited members are well trusted and extremely capable members - the family member who leads a crew; short for capodecina

(Made Guy) These are trusted members, given a bit more time they will be promoted. An indoctrinated member of the Family. Essentially, you pledge your allegiance to the boss and the family for life.

(Cugine) This is a normal member, still in the process of proving themselves.

(Jamook) Jamook: idiot, loser, lamebrained, you know, a jamook. Still in the process of proving themselves to become a Cugine.


To get promoted to a higher rank in The Mafia you must do the following, any breach of this will result in you not being promoted.

*Follow all the rules.
*Be a very active member, this includes attending wars and such.
*Have a good attitude towards other members as well as the GM.

From time to time the GM and AGM reviews each and every member and make sure they have done all of the above, and then you may get promoted.

But DO NOT request a promotion, if you request a promotion you will only end up staying at entry rank twice as long. If the GM feels you deserve a promotion you will get it.


If a member from another guild is caught within our lands doing ANY offensive actions, such as attacking, sorcery, burnings etc. We will give a maximum of 24 hours for the leadership of the acting guild to contact us, on a messenger or Temper’s Ball. If this time is surpassed, we will immediately react to this by simply destroying the acting kingdom, no matter how little or big the severity of the action was.

However if we are contacted we can easily work out something to make everyone happy and prevent the decimation of the acting kingdom or guild.

For your convenience the contacts to the leaders of The Mafia have been added. (see below)


Here are some contacts of guild staff including the GMs and the AGMs, feel free to contact any of us if you have any questions.
