We are a newly founded Rift guild on the Hammerlord (PVE) shard. Still in the process of getting things organized, like this website for example, we have big plans for our future. "The Abyss Stares Back" is a guild that strives to serve a more mature minded player base with enjoying all facets of the game. We are not a specific raiding guild anymore than we are aimed at solely doing PVP content. What we are about however is a fun, friendly and helpful union of players who rather not deal with a guild that tolerates either immature or unethical behavior -- crude R-rated talk in Guild chat, telling people they must play one specific way, etc.
This guild was founded by members with prior guild officer experience and responsibilities outside of this game. We know that your free time is valuable to you, it is to us as well.This guild's greatest accomplishment would be to one day have all its members feel so invested in its success that everyone freely offers suggestions, feedback, comments, etc. That is what the guild management wants to see happen. That is our goal, to be "the members' guild".
So please take a look around with an open mind that as far as your goals for contributing to a guild in an MMO go -- you really have no limits in this guild except for yourself. You want to contribute to the guild website? It's open to you. You think one day you might be a raid leader for official guild runs, its open to you. Maybe you'd like to help us with day to day things in the guild as an officer -- that path is available to you.
All you have to do is express your desires to us (use the forums that's why we have them), show up in game and demonstrate to your fellow guild members that you are a fun, helpful player and there's no limits to your time with "The Abyss Stares Back".
Thank you for reading this and I hope to see you in game!
Founding Guild Leader
