Your path to joining Eternal Vigilance begins here. This path has a number of stops, however each member may reach them at their own pace. Initially, once you create an account you will be a Community Member and a Member of The Citadel; a Portal where all of the games our community play are organised.
Along this path the main stop is Core Membership, we recommend spending time as a Community/Portal Member first. Read the description of each rank and then scroll down to the bottom of this page to start your journey.
- All members are required to be at least 18 years of age at the time of admission.
- Regardless of how you choose to join the guild, the first thing you should do is introduce yourself on our forums.
Community Members are members of Eternal Vigilance’s main Portal, The Citadel. They are members who have expressed an interest in our multi-gaming platform.
Below are some of the reasons you may be interested in becoming a Community Member.
- You enjoy playing more than one game, and would like to be able to do so under the banner of Eternal Vigilance with other Eternal Vigilance members for years to come.
- You wish to remain a member of Eternal Vigilance for longer than the duration of a single portal’s lifespan. Community Membership does not end if a portal closes for whatever reason.
By registering an account on our forums, you have already become a Community Member. There is no application process.
Portal Members are members of Eternal Vigilance who belong to a portal (an organized group of Eternal Vigilance members playing a single game or grouping of games). The nature of Portal Membership between portals can vary and is highly dependent on the design or rank structure of the portal you seek to join. However, Portal Members are universally guaranteed the right to a vote during the Portal Commander elections, granting you the opportunity to hold sway and influence the direction that your portal takes.
If you choose to join Eternal Vigilance as a Community/Portal Member, and do not become a Core Member, you are declaring an interest in playing with Eternal Vigilance in only the game portal(s) you have individually applied for, which will still enable you to participate in the multi-gaming aspects of our guild but you will not be allowed to vote in Master Chancellor elections or Charter amendments.
However, there is nothing preventing you from walking the path of a Community/Portal member at your own pace and then later becoming a Core Member if you decide you would like to make a deeper commitment.
Below are some of the reasons you may be interested in becoming a Community/Portal Member without Core Membership status.
- You are interested in playing with Eternal Vigilance in only one game, or do not mind applying again if you wish to join a second portal.
- You do not foresee an interest in one day becoming the leader of the portal you are joining. You may still become an Officer if your portal’s design allows it, however.
Core Members are just like Community/Portal Members, but they have some additional privileges, and it is more difficult to become one. Like Community/Portal Members, Core Members can participate in the multi-gaming aspects of Eternal Vigilance by passing freely between portals, but they can also start portals, lead portals, become the leader of the entire community (the Master Chancellor), vote on who should become the Master Chancellor, propose amendments to the guild charter, and more.
Below are some of the reasons you may be interested in becoming a Core Member.
- You foresee belonging to Eternal Vigilance for many years, and would like to help steer the course as the community evolves.
- You enjoy taking initiative and participating in leadership.
- You believe strongly in the Eternal Vigilance Charter and would like to be an advocate for the principles espoused by it.
To become a Core Member, you must satisfy a few pre-requisites and undergo an application process. Core Membership is not viewed as entry-level, so we recommend waiting to apply for Core Membership until you have spent considerable time around Eternal Vigilance members, preferably as a Community Member, so that you can increase your chances of being voted in.
