Flame Wreath is a World of Warcraft guild on the Dath'Remar realm.
We've been around since the start of WotLK expansion, we are a group of people that aim to get through and experience the games content in a reasonable time frame and aim to have fun doing it.
We welcome any player that wants to join us from social through to raiding game play and we will do our best to accommodate and include all keen and active players who wish to positively contribute to the guilds existence.
Flame Wreath is a mature and inclusvie and supportive guild. And we are a publicly advertised LBGTI friendly guild.
What this means is that we have people in the guild who come from all walks of life - some of them are gay, some are from other countries, we have varied political viewpoints, we even have some folks who actually like Vegemite! - but moreover we're all grown ups and everyone deserves and recieves respect - we won't tolerate racism or discrimination.
Our main aim is to provide a fun and enjoyable place for people to call home - and it really shouldn't matter who you sleep with, or what kind of weird spreads you like on your toast.
This charter should be read and understood by all guild members. If you have any questions or remarks don't hesitate to bring it up with an Officer or the Guild Master.

Leadership - Officers and Guild Master
The following is a list of must-haves for the Officers and Guild Master:
* Be respectful - not only to our guild members but to all players in the game. You're the face of the guild in /trade - act like it
* Willingness to assist - Help members with guild related issues where possible, listen to new ideas.
* Communicate - Participate in Officer and Guild Chat where appropriate.
* Positive Attitude - Officers should have a positive attitude in guild chat and with all members. Doubts and concerns may be expressed in officer chat or through other officer channels. (e.g. Discord).
* Offices are role models - New members and new players will look for guidance in how to behave and interact within the guild and the game - set a great example and we will all be rewarded for it.
* Abuse of power is not a good thing - If you feel an officer is abusing power, please inform the Guild Master.
Too much middle management is often a bad thing, so not everyone needs to or gets to become an Officer. It's not about position, importance or rank. As the need arises Officers will be created following discussion and agreement to appoint. Please don't ask to be an Officer, asking indicates you want power; And this pretty much ensures you'll never become one If you're a great guildy and would make a good Officer, we'll know it.
Ranks are really nothing more than a way for us to control access to banks, and manage toons efficiently. We've got around 300+ toons in the guild, and knowing which is an Alt of Who is useful, so we use the ranks to manage that. Most of the ranks are named after Fire related things - just for fun.
Ember - Invite level rank, anyone when invited to guild will join up at this rank. This rank is also the lowest permission in terms of guild bank access and any members that have been away from the game for a long time (6 months or more) will be returned to this rank for security reasons - If you come back to the game and start playing again we'll bump you back up.
Spark - Alt's level rank - any Alt toons of guildy mains will be this rank. It allows us to keen track of the Alt's easily. Alts will have access to the first tab of the guild bank to facilitate trading items around the guild and access to basic items that are free-for-all.
Wreather - Member level for main toons, this level is for all members that play regularly at a social level within the Guild. Wreathers have additional access to the guild bank to assist in crafting items for the guild and members.
SmokeStack - Raider level, this level is used for Main toons of Raiding members. Access to guild bank tabs which contain raiding items - Flasks, Foods etc. Raiding members can fetch items for upcoming raids ahead of time, but we will normally drop a mobile bank at the start of the raid to ensure everyone has what they need. SmokeStack's can invite members to guild - this access is to allow getting Friends and Alt's invited into the guild. Once invited any Alt's need to have their note set to indicate who's Alt they are.
Phlogistan - Raider (assitant leder) level, this level is used for Main toons of Raiding members - Those that are contributing above just the raiding level by assisting in organisation, planning and running of Raids.
Officer - Guild Officers rank used to indicate those mains and alts in the guild are Officers. If you need an Officer for any reason you can locate these people via the in-game roster quickly.
PyroLord and PyroLord Alt - These are for the founders of the guild, and the original and continuing officers. The main distinction from an Officer level is that they can appoint Officers and change ranks for all toons in the guild up to Officer level - so that all this work doesn't require the Guild Master. If you're interesting in learning about the history of the Guild these guys can probably help you out, they've been here as long as the cobwebs.
Brimstone Guard - This is the Guild Master rank, there can be only one.
There are a few other ranks in the middle of those, they simply facilitate the Officers and GM being able to set toon ranks with out the need to flip characters and interrupt game-play. If you really want to know about them ask Apollor.
The primary forms of communication for the guild are in-game guild chat, Discord and Ventrillo.
Discord - provides topical discussion and sharing around the game, the guild and life in general. Everyone is encouraged to get on discord so you can participate beyond the game with fellow guildies as much as possible.
Vent - is not a requirement for social guild members, but it is for raiding. You do not need a microphone - unless you intend to play a key role in raiding (i.e. a Tank, or Raid Leader). For everything else you're more than welcome to use vent for socializing and organizing instance runs or ad-hoc raids, battle ground groups etc. You can invite non-guild members into vent, but other guilds and groups are not welcome to (ab)use the facility to run their own groups without guild-members being included/present. You can find the vent server details in-game in the guild info panel.
In-Game Chat - Use of the in-game chat is widely used for general discussion and banter.
It is expected that all members of the guild treat each other with respect. If another member raises an issue with you directly, listen and act appropriately.
We are a primarily English speaking guild, and so that we can include everyone it is preferred that conversions in guild are in English. However, if you can speak French, Japanese or Klingon then good luck asking for an Enchant or Flask
Abusing members on any grounds won't be tolerated - Do not bash/abuse or pick on any member for their religion, sex, gender, sexuality, favorite band/golf-player/football team. Anyone who experiences such abuse should report it to the GM (or Officers) immediately.
When attending raids, try to keep vent chatter to a minimum and follow the directions/advice of the organiser. Outside raids social vent chatter is encourage, but keep it civil and respectful. There are several vent channels you can use, if you need more let the GM know and we'll see about getting them created.
Guild Chat - that green text in game - should be generally at a PG (M15+) level at most. Guild chat is not really an optional element to the game, whilst it can be turned off it is the default mechanism for communication in the guild - and whilst we are mainly adult members we do have a few children and younger players. So it's requested you be mindful of them and use appropriate communication were possible. That said, we're not conversation monitors - if your youngsters play and you don't want them to see the occasional swear word - turn off their guild chat in game. You're the parent and should take responsibility for your creations.
Vent chatter can be at a more adult level, as an optional and external-to-the-game form of communications, no one is forced to log on to vent. Expect to hear a few swear words on vent, we're adults and on occasion we get a little agro at that rogue stabbing us in the back - we want and need to express a few colourful metaphores.
Everyone enjoys WoW for their own reasons - remember everyone else is here to play a game also, to relax and have some fun and enjoyment - we're not your slaves and nor are you expected to be theirs.
