Company Event Loot Drops

  • When doing any FC events such as Primals, Raids, Treasure Hunts, Dungeons, etc; Leader of the group, please discuss your loot rules with your entire party, prior to starting the run. If no rules were discussed, that means the loot is considered free lot. (Need/Greed).

Company Events/Weekly Runs

  • Check the Discord to see what day and time scheduled events are.

General Conduct

  • Be prepared when attending events :
    • Have your gear repaired, bring food (if applicable, i.e you need a win or progression runs for the entire group.)
    • If you don’t have experience, at least watch a video ( primals & raids ) and tell your party leader, don’t be afraid to ask for more info.
      • This is due to the complexity of certain fights, and we won’t expect you to watch a video and be a pro at the fight, it’ll just help you understand your leader’s explanations better.
    • Treat others as you want to be treated. Be courteous. Joking around is ok, but be cognizant of offending others.
    • When attempting high level, high difficulty content, be courteous to the players you’re with.
    • Do not show up to content under geared unless the people organizing the content specifically specified this was ok.
      (Don’t show up to Primals/Raids/etc with minimum ilvl equipment if you’re needed to contribute your all to clear the content.)

      • It is perfectly acceptable for relic runs where the other members are intending to carry an under geared player through the content or for other content like 24 man raids, to enter as such as its expected. The issue mostly lies in progression content, if you’re trying to do something as progression, you should always bring your A-Game and if you don’t have an A-Game, you should practice until you do.
      • Be mindful and courteous to ALL players in the game. When you wear the CEL tag you are representing every single one of us. Be helpful, be constructive. If you find yourself in a bad situation LEAVE IT, Or tell an officer and we will help you to the best of our ability. Offer the same courtesy that you would offer our own members outside of the FC.

Third Party Parsing Applications

  • Celestia understand the desire and use of third party parsing applications, especially in end game progression content and how it can be useful. We do not condone using any application to harass or belittle other players, in or out of the FC. Any application that interacts with the game to provide automated actions (such as a FATE grinding bot, fishing bot, crafting bot, Battle bots,position hacks, speed hacks, etc) is strictly forbidden. Anyone suspected of using a Bot application will be investigated and if the investigation results in a confirmation of the original assessment, they will be removed from the FC without further warning.

FC Chat

  • Always be courteous to others.
  • Be cognizant of other people’s feelings and opinions
  • Discussions about race, sex, gender, religion or politics need to stay out of FC chat. There are so many different opinions/beliefs and even though we want people to express themselves, these topics tend to cause arguments and unrest.
  • Any argumentative conversation must be taken to tells immediately. Failure to do so will result in a Warning/Dismissal from FC.
  • No promoting or selling personal out of game items

Demotions

  • Any Officer may be demoted if the majority feels that player isn’t fulfilling the requirements of the duty. It is not a slight against the player, its just that they may no longer be a good fit for the position due to real life issues or changes in the structure of the free company.
  • Any person who is demoted can be eligible for promotion again should the FC Leaders feel the reason they were demoted is no longer viable.
  • If any member has been inactive for 30 days and did not notify Scura, Blessed or any officers prior, they will be dismissed from the FC. However, if prior notice was given, you will be put on a Do Not Kick list for up to a maximum of 100 days. If you do not log in by the time you reach 100 days, you will be dismissed from the FC.
  • Archdukes will automatically be placed on the Do Not Kick List for up to a maximum of 100 days. If dismissed for inactivity, Archdukes will have 30 days to re-join the FC and get their rank back. If the 30 days has expired and you return to the FC you will start back at Soldier Rank.
  • Marquess will automatically be placed on the Do Not Kick List for up to a maximum of 365 days. If dismissed for inactivity, Marquess will have 30 days to re-join the FC and get their rank back. If the 30 days has expired and you return to the FC you will start back at Soldier Rank.

Demotion of a Magistrate/Kings Hand

  • Failure to adhere to the guidelines and values of the Free Company
  • Engaging in actions that give the appearance of impropriety
  • Magistrates and Kings Hands should have a good reason for the things they do, that reason should be fair to the members and not take advantage of their situation or the FC
