Welcome to the Order of the Rose-Croix
We are a friendly online gaming group for adults, established in October 2001. We mostly play massively mulitplayer online games, some of which have included Everquest 2, Planetside, Guild Wars 2 and of course World of Warcraft. We also play non-MMO online together, for example Path of Exile.
We are always open to hearing from new players that may like to join us. We promote fair and friendly play styles and do not tolerate trolling or grief based play. Please refer to our Guide to Applying if you are interested in joining us. Please note that our application rules may change from time to time. We also generally only accept new members that are 18 years old or over.
We are currently interested in the following games:

Times are changing and so should ORC. Gone are the days in which there was only a handful of online games to choose from and only a couple of guilds to decide between. These days the market is flooded with online only games and the whole meaning of the word Guild has changed dramatically. Before it was a place to meet like minded people, a long term commitment just like the game you were playing, an online place to hang out with those you like. Now there are tons of hangout spaces online and with people shifting between games faster and faster a guild is something you want easy access to. This does not mean that ORC should give up on its values, on the contrary, nowadays it might be even more important to stick to them to stand out amongst the many guilds looking for players. This does however mean that we need to approach our recruitment in a slightly different manner lowering the barrier of entry while maintaining those values that make ORC the community that it is.
That is why the officers have decided the following: We will drop the initial application requirement. Most people you meet that are looking for a guild will be in the game anyway and 'invite on sight' might be a bit drastic but if, after a short talk, they seem qualified there should be no reason for them not to be invited. Over 18, friendly and mature still applies of course. We will however ask those who join us to write an introduction post on our forums within their first week or else they will be removed from our guild, we still want to meet the person, not the character. If all goes well they will be members after that. We feel that, by handling it this way, we will get people in more easy and that once they have joined us they have more reason to make an effort.
This might seem a bit drastic to some of you but the truth is we are struggling to maintain a healthy playerbase in our games. We need fresh blood and having 2 or 3 people join us with each new MMO is simply not enough. We do hope you all understand this and will treat the manner with decency and respect.

So another year rolls by and ORC is getting geared up for a slew of new online games.
First up appears to be The Elder Scrolls Online, a MMO version of the popular Elder Scrolls series (Skyrim, Oblivion etc). There appears to be a little be of excitement in our ranks regard this one.
Coming a little later is Wildstar, a science fiction fantasy MMO from Carbine Studios. This looks to be quite a fun action based MMO, but also has a lot of familiarity to those old WoW veterans that might be looking for something with similar Aesthetics, but in a totally different setting.
Lets not also forget the much anticipated "MMO Game Changer", that is Everquest Next. The creative mode, named Everquest Next: Landmark is just entering the Alpha stage now. Its taking the voxel based building system you may have become familiar with via Minecraft or Rust, and combines it with an Everquest RPG style experience. ORC hopes to have a presence, and maybe one of our members will create something in Landmark that ends up in the full game!
Also on the horizon is the extremely successfully crowd funded Star Citizen, a multiplayer space exploration, combat, trading sandbox game from the makers of Wing Commander. Plus there is a similar venture by David Braban with Elite Dangerous.
Then there is the Diablo 3 expansion, Reaper of Souls, which may interest some of us for a while. And lets not forget the behemoth of the MMO genre has a new expansion in the works....
Meanwhile Path of Exile is about to get a big content update too.
2014 looks to be an exciting and busy year for the guild. See you in game
