ESO Charter

Mission Statement

Evolved is a gaming community that believes you can have a very rewarding gaming experience while remaining a family-friendly environment. Real life comes first, but we’ll be here to support you when you want to escape into a game. As a Guild, we will follow Evolved’s values and proudly represent our community in Elder Scrolls Online (ESO). We will be known for our friendly individuals and supportive atmosphere, but also for our accomplishments. Our members’ success drives the success of the Guild. Together we Evolve our community.This Guild charter in no way supersedes the Evolved Gaming charter. All members should make themselves familiar with that charter prior to joining Evolved in ESO!

Disclaimer

This Charter is a living document that can and WILL change as the Guild grows and matures. The Guild Leader reserves the right to make changes and rulings to this policy at any time, including on the spot, if needed, in order to correct loopholes and keep things fair.

Guild Leader Clause

The Guild Leader reserves the right to make decisions that may at times supersede and/or contradict this charter and policies of the guild. These decisions will never be made lightly and always be done with the betterment of the guild as a whole in mind. The Guild Leader also has the last word on all decisions concerning their guild, guild forum section, charter, and/or anything pertaining to the Evolved ESO Guild. All decisions made by the Guild Leader can and will be reviewed by the Evolved Board of Directors to ensure fairness to all members.

Common Sense Clause

No policy is 100% safe from exploitation and the officers are here to make sure all things are done fairly. All changes made to the charter in this matter will be reviewed by the Guild Leader before being set in stone.

No Drama Clause

Any member found to be causing and/or instigating extreme drama within the guild will be asked to leave. The Guild Leader will make the determination of what qualifies as extreme drama, and what does not. At no time will any Evolved member intentionally grief another player either in or out of game. Examples of griefing include, but are not limited to: verbal or written abuse in non-guild channels, and anything else that normal players would find distasteful. If any of these things is what you enjoy about gaming, you are in the wrong guild.

The Guild

The advancement of the guild is all-important. Guild progress equals personal progress. If you are not a team player then stop now and look somewhere else. As a guild we will help you out along the way, either through Questing, PvP, as well as Raiding. We will not drop everything to do so but work together as a TEAM to acquire a common goal. Please don’t take constructive criticism to heart, we only want what’s best.

Ranking System

**Guild Leader **

The Guild Leader is responsible for his/her guild and all that pertains to Evolved in Elder Scrolls Online. It is the Guild Leader’s responsibility to set in-game and out of game (if necessary) goals for the guild to provide the proper direction and course for Evolved. The Guild Leader has the final say so on all things pertaining to the workings of the Guild and its membership.

At any time the Guild Leader may assume the responsibilities of any other Officer position within the Guild if necessary and can override any decision made by another officer if it is deemed to be detrimental to the Guild. As an extension of the overall Evolved Community (Evolved Gaming), the Guild Leader is expected to operate and make all decisions with the betterment of Evolved as a whole in mind.

**Executive Officer **

The Executive Officer is a direct extension of the Guild Leader and only answers to the Guild Leader. The Executive Officer is in complete charge of the guild whenever the Guild Leader is not present and has the Guild Leader’s authority to make on-the-spot decisions for the betterment of the Guild if needed.
