About RED - Guild Wars 2, Devona's Rest
Spys Sappin Mah Guild Name [RED] is a large active Guild Wars 2 social guild located on the Devona’s Rest server.

RED excels at the following:
  • WvW
  • Guild Missions
  • Leading server-wide events
  • Dungeons and Fractals

We are a fun, family-friendly, helpful guild with new and seasoned players to the Guild Wars franchise. We have a TeamSpeak 3 server for voice communication. We welcome all friendly and active players to our guild.

We do require guild members to keep chat PG-13 and ONLY represent our guild. You can be on any server, though if you are not on Devona's Rest, after about a month or so of time with RED, it is expected that you will consider transferring. If there is absolutely no long term goal to transfer to DR, then we may not be the guild for you.

Guildies,
You may have noticed that we lost a large group of people. Svid gave a heads up to Prea informing him of his choice to to leave RED. He wanted to belong to a WvW centered guild. Arvin and Ally have also chosen to leave RED for similar reasons. As a result a large portion of our hardline WvW members choose to leave RED to join other guilds. We completely understand our philosophy of a casual guild does not work for everyone and wish them the best. May they have fun in terrorizing WvW enemies and yaks!!!

Since the loss of our WvW leaders Prae has chosen to step down as Leader of RED. He has temporarily put in charge Tetisuko, Kristen, and myself. Due to difficult times occurring in my family I will be stepping down as an officer though I will be helping during this transitional phase. Tetisuko and Kristen will be discussing the leadership of RED once Kristen comes back from her vacation.

We have switched leaders several times and RED has continued to be strong due to our member’s commitment. We will keep you up-to-date on the future of RED and will try to schedule a guild meeting within the next week. For those interested in stepping up to help RED please let us know!!! If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please don’t hesitate to ask Tetisuko, Talas Kaiden, or Kristen. Please note Kristen is currently out of town and will be unable to respond till she is home.

Promotions and Open Officer Positions
  • Arvin has been promoted to Lead Officer. Arvin has put in tremendous of work for RED. Under him and Svidangit, RED is one of the strongest WvW guilds on Devona's Rest.
  • Pixie Snow has been promoted to Officer - this promotion happened quite a while ago, but didn't get a shout-out.
  • Riivinz has been promoted to Commander - this promotion also happened quite a while ago, but didn't get a shout-out.

RED is currently seeking people to learn how to run guild missions, so we have backup when people are busy. If you are interested, you need to show up to Wednesday guild events, at 8:30PM EST. Get in touch with Praettor beforehand. RED is also seeking to fill three new officer positions within the guild. Get in touch with any Lead Officer (Tetisuko, Kristen Wave, Svidangit, X Arvin, Talas Kaidan, or Aeonfluxx) for info.

Screenshot Contest
The fourth wave of the screenshot contest is upon us! We've had some fabulous entries in contests past. We have only a single entry in #4 so far. Come enter for your chance to win a bit of gold and a lot of glory! You can find details here.

Server Events
In addition to events that are on the RED calendar (which can be found here), you can find server-wide events on the DevonasRest.org website, here. Please note that you will need to create an account on DevonasRest.org to view the events, just like you did here on red-guild.com

Guild Bank Resources
The guild bank's contents are for you. Officers will limit things at their discretion so one person don't take everything, but if there's anything you need from there, just ask. For example, if you need 15 or 18 slot bags, we make them every month to hand out to members.

RED Ranks: Review and Drawing #1
Read below for a review of the RED ranks. In addition, we had our first drawing among the Raiders and Crimson Raiders, with 25g going to Nick Nackk!.

Many people have worked hard within RED to show dedication. To reward them, we have restructured our ranks. Newly introduced are Raider and Crimson Raider. Crimson Raider and Raider qualify for a monthly 25g drawing. To move up from Soldier/Dignitary to Raider/Crimson Raider, you have to do a few things:
  • Participate in guild things: WvW, Guild Missions, Dungeon/FOTM Runs with at least 2 other RED members, Screenshot Contest, Guild Lottery, etc.
  • Mark yourself as attending on events on the calendar. You can go back through old events if you want. We will review the numbers weekly to promote people.
  • Talk to Telonnious. Tel is responsible for promoting people as appropriate. If he misses you, don't take it personally (there are somewhere around 425 people he's managing).

  • Heavy Historic owners and creators of RED. No effective powers.
  • Heavy Moo Guild Leaders of RED. Moozilla (Summer 2012 - Fall 2013) was the leader of RED for a long time, along with Illusionary Ally (Winter 2012 - Spring 2013) and Kiso Earthraven (January 2013 - Fall 2013). Prae Tor is the current leader (Fall 2013 - present) along with, unofficially, Talas Kaidan (Fall 2013 - present). The only way to become guild leader is to be promoted at the discretion of the current leader.
  • Lead Officer Leadership council of RED. These people live and breathe RED. The primary responsibility of Lead Officers is to find and promote people to officer position. Additionally, leadership convenes to decide on new directions, events, and rule changes within RED. The only way to become Lead Officer is to be promoted at the discretion of existing Lead Officers and Guild Leaders. Trusted with upper access to the bank.
  • Officer The driving force behind RED. Officers recruit, host events, provide bank access, and generally assist members within the guild. To become an officer, simply ask. You should be an active member within RED, social in chat and in guild events / WvW. You should have a desire to put in work to help the guild. Generally speaking, most people who have been in the guild for a couple months that show some initiative to become an officer will be given a chance. Trusted with lower access to the bank.
  • Commander No official officer responsibilities. Someone who loves leading in-game but does not have current interest in officership. Can claim in WvW. Can recruit, but no expectation. Does *something* for the guild or server. Requires a sigil. Trusted with lower access to the bank.
  • Crimson Raider The most active and consistent attendees of events. Crimson Raiders have been in the guild for at least 6 months and have been to about 50 or more events. Trusted with lower access to the bank.
  • Raider Active, regular attendees of events. Raiders have been in the guild for at least 1 month and have been to about 10 events.
  • Soldier Base rank for all RED members who live on Devona's Rest.
  • Dignitary Base rank for all RED members are not from Devona's Rest.
  • Ambassador Members from other guilds with which we have an alliance. Can rep RED as desired to join in our events. To become an ambassador, inquiry with any Officer.


Deep within the crypts

TeamSpeak
Whether you are participating in WvW, PvE, or guild events, TeamSpeak is an invaluable tool. Our TS server is theredguild.typefrag.com and we frequently use devonasts.org. TS is basically required for most events - however you do NOT need a microphone. It is absolutely a blast to be coordinating with everyone. If you have any questions on how to download, install, or set up TeamSpeak, please post on the forums.

Inactive Members
We remove our inactive members periodically. To remain active, you need to sign in at least once every 6 weeks. This way you will not be considered inactive and removed from the roster. If you should happen to be removed for inactivity, and you have returned to playing again, you are always welcome back to RED. Simply contact an officer who will get you an invite back into the guild.

Have ideas?
Guildies - share ideas for what you’d like to see. Please reply to this post if there is anything RED can do for you!.

Need answers?
Please be aware when you post questions in guild chat and get no response that you are not being ignored. Some guildies might be deep in the bowels of a dungeon or subduing dragons and may not see your post. Officers may not be available due to babies, deadlines, relocations, stall mucking and hangovers. You can post your question in the forums, or you can send in-game mail to Prae Tor, or Talas Kaidan and we can route it to the proper person if need be.

Good hunting!

The next installment of the Living Story comes July 29th!

We discussed the following

  • We will use the Devona's Rest Server TeamSpeak, with address devonasts.org, instead of our guild TS. This will improve guild visibility.
  • Please jump in when people ask to do dungeons, fractals, etc. The way we can build a better PvE culture is to get more people to participate. The bottom line is that right now, we have plenty of times every week when people ask 'Does anyone want to do ____' and there are 50 people online but no response.
  • We didn't make any changes to the PG13 rule, but keep in mind that it's 'PG13-ish', and we are moving towards a state where we don't want to have rough language but certainly aren't going to come down on anyone for throwing a swear word out every now and again.
by Prae Tor on Jul 17, 2014 at 05:17 AM
Don't forget to attend Friday's guild meeting at 8:00PM EST, where we'll discuss the following

  • TeamSpeak Migration
  • Building a better PvE culture
  • Possibly revisiting the PG13 rule and how it's enforced
  • Anything that concerns you!

Officers, please be online and in TeamSpeak (theredguild.typefrag.com) at 7:30 EST.
