  1. How do I become a Member?

    Be active, prove you're staying in the guild, and join the guild site, there are exceptions of course to people having to join the site.


  2. How do I become an Officer?

    The way to become an officer is to 1. Be in the guild for at least two (2) active weeks 2. Basically you have to act like an officer though you're a member: help others, recruit your friends, be a good face for the guild for the outside realms (such as you represent Imperious so represent yourself well), be active on the guild site (huge factor is being active on guild site and/or being social in FR), show that you help others and can help us run events. We do have a quota of only 9 officers at the moment however.

    Almost everybody looking to become an officer should fill an Officer Application Form, as that shows us that you are responsible to take the time to do it and tells us you are looking for an officer position. Also you may notify a leader or an officer of your wish as they do have influence on the decision, however repeated notification will be considered begging which is one way Not to receive a promotion.

    The Imperious Council Leaders meets at least every week to review officer applications and needs 2 out of the 3 leaders to make a promotion (if a leader has not been online for 4 days or more we make the decision without him/her), though you may have been in the guild for two (2) weeks, you'll have to wait for this meeting for your application to be reviews.

    Notice: You may be qualified for an exceptional officer, but as of now Imperious is only looking for 11 officers at a time, so you'll have to wait for one to leave or for us to raise the limit, make another guild, or for an officer to quit, thank you for your patience!


  3. How do I become a Leader?

    You can't become leader unless we open extension guilds.


  4. How can I join the Imperious Council?

    Imperious' Council is the just the league of all the officers and leader in the guild, along with special circumstances where leaders of alliance guilds can participate.


  5. How can I be made a Moderator?

    The moderators on the site are the people in the Imperious Council.


  6. When does the guild promote people?

    Members can be promoted at any time, however Officers are only promoted on weekends and thats if you get the 2/3 vote from the leaders and officers.

Demoting

  1. What will get me demoted or deleted?

    There are many ways to be demoted, xD sorry, here are all of them as of now...

    1. Going more than two weeks offline without giving notice (if your a member). By the way this is a demotion, not getting kicked.

    2. Going one week offline without giving notice (if you an officer). By the way this is also a demotion, not getting kicked.

    3. Causing drama in the guild such as fights, you may get a warning first or you may just get kicked.

    4. If you're an officer: demoting or deleting people or making people officers (can result in being kicked without warning).

    5. Not following any different rules that may be in effect for specific times, such as games or events (its okay if you don't understand, purposefully cheating is whats wrong).

    6. If room is needed for more people in the guild, then recruits with 2 weeks offline or more, without reasons for their absence having been giving, will be deleted for others.

    7. If you are found to be cheating at one of our events, or anything similar to cheating, on purpose then you will be given a warning, demoted, or kicked, depending on past offenses and what you did.

    8. If you are swearing or spamming, especially on the guild chat.

    9. Anybody after 3 weeks offline with no notice is assumed to have quit Freerealms and will be deleted.


  2. What happens if I leave the guild?/Why do some people get promoted so quickly?

     If you leave the guild for less than a week then when you get back, if we have room, you are automatically put back in your original rank, but if you leave for more than a week than you have to start all over again (well it will take less time but usually you have to wait 2 to 3 weeks for your old positions.

    This is also why some people seem to be promoted so quickly, they left the guild, then they didn't have to wait a couple weeks for their old spot, which may seem unfair if you didn't know that and only saw that they are getting promoted sooner than you.

General Guild Info

  1. What do I do if I have a complaint?

     If you have a complaint with anything or anybody first thing you should do is talk to an Officer or leader. If you still wish to persue the issue, you are welcomed to fill out and send a complaint form from This Page and I personally will see to or bring it up to the council.

    The thing you should do to get it solved is to not make a big deal out of it or you will be causing drama also. Just fill out the questionnaire and send it, that will show responsibility and get everything solved and back to normal quickest.


  2. What are our Guild Events?

    This guild usually does events every other weekend once we get full. I usually plan and carry out the events, so the timing and actual event is up to me unless council overrules it or an officer is running the event.

    So far in this guild and past guilds I led we have done duel tournaments, capture the flag, paintball, Guild Olympics, and parties. The turn outs of these events can be fantastic, though how good they are usually depends on how many people show up, and though these events aren't mandatory, we encourage you to come and ask that if you sign up that your coming that you do come or give us notice if you find out you can't.

    The events sometimes have prizes, sometimes are just for fun, you will have to listen to our news, guild chat, and forums to find out. The rules are listed on our Imperious Events Page.


  3. What are our Ally guilds?

    TBA


  4. What is the Imperious Council?

    Imperious Council is the collection of all the officers and leaders in the guild (along with sometimes Ally guild leaders), who meet once or twice a month to review how the guild is doing. And though each individual officer and leader has their respected power, the counil can overturn and change any decision they have made and the only power that can overrule the council is unaminous leader agreement.

    Although the leaders can unaminous outvote the council, it does have its power, such as there is hardly an issue all 3 leaders are agreed upon. And council can bring up issues to the leaders attentions, and discuss them such as new leaders, officers, different events, extensions guilds, etc. 

    We usually do the reviews of these meetings in the council forums. The max number of people allowed in the Council is 14 people. Also the rule is that out of every 5 Council threads or meetings we make you have to attend at least 3 of them unless something is stopping you, if you don't then you will be replaced as you aren't doing your job.


  5. Imperious History

    My, aka Jáy (Nightblade) first guild, Knights of the Phoenix, got to 100 people in it was a pretty successful guild in the new Freerealms, it was made pretty much near FR's starTt, when guilds first came out, so you know we were newbs, but still a great guild. It has 3 leaders, Me, David Fireblade (aka Joker24 aka Sleepy1), and Zander Stormpeak. After about a month from when it was created, some officers hacked the guild and deleted over 40 members and recruits. After this i came to the decision that i could restart the guild instead of trying to get people back as i wasn't a complete noob at running guilds anymore and it would be better anyways.

    Then Renegade was created, when it started it was kinda a newb guild, but me and Sleepy being the leaders we are made it into arguably one of the top 3 guilds ever created. I was the main leader and we have (overall) myself, Lolaya, Joker24, Satoshi Steelclaws, Zoe Tinyfoot, and Kyle Icethrone as leaders in it. Then as we grew much larger and more popular we decided to make extension guilds.

    So after awhile I made an extension guild calld Renegade Force since Sleepy1 was the best leader and could be trusted  the best, Sleepy1 went to go on and lead it, it was a big hit was really popular, probably close to renegade. We did have 3 other Renegade extension guilds, Renegade Force II, Renegade Force III, and Renegade Forced IV, though they all got full pretty quickly, none were as great or famous as the first 2.

    As our guilds become more diverse we couldn't really communicate between them (we didn't have this website). So they failed as a way of miscommunication and we lost many of our members we had over in the other guilds.

    After that Sleepy1 decided to make Emperial by himself and he was allies with Renegade. Emperial was really succesful he maxed it in about 2 days which was really impressive but the guild later on failed in about 2 months sadly.

    In about six months since creating Renegade, the guild started getting hacked a couple times, though it wasn't destroying it as we got easily everybody back, it was becoming annoying and also bothering most of the members and recruits. And since i was busy this couple weeks i was getting really annoyed how the guild couldn't take care of itself, also the couple times i did come back they guild had too much drama that others couldn't handle. Thus after the 2nd or 3rd time it got hacked, i quit the guild, leaving Lolaya as the main leader in charge of the guild, along with Kyle Icethrone, and Zoe Tiny foot.

    After a week, i decided to start over again, and make a guild that could lead itself more or less when i wasn't there every second. Since i was definitely not a noob leader anymore, as i was when i created my last two guilds, i knew it would be even more of a success. I decided on Crusaders as that was the name i originally wanted for Renegade but somebody else had it. So i bought the name off of the guild leader that had it and i made the guild called Crusaders, which would be run expertly from the start. After awhile, many of the officers and some members from Renegade transferred over to Crusaders.

    Crusader later on became a huge success, we were pretty active, famous, and had no drama other than people switching between Crusader and Renegade, too hard to choose :P

    Around this time Sleepy1 went on and made Imperious, probably the most popular (though not necessarily best or most loved guild) ever to exist. The leaders were Evil Locos Jake Nightshades and Michael Gustypants. Eventualy Evil hacked it but Sleepy1 didnt know he was offline for about 4months which made the guild go down and be hacked alot of times which was a dissapointment. They later took over Imperious and his leaders made Imperious II which was alright but he left to make Primarus

    Primarus became a huge success also, though had its fair amount of drama. Sleepy1 later left because he didnt like the name, idk, sleepy is a weird fellow. Though he joined Zenith on his alt, which was lead by Prince Tridon.

    Then, probably around now that I began thinking it was my time to quit FR, had tons of stuff going on in my life...so i quit FR for probably 3 months and crusader died. Then later on he wanted Imperious back and he made it his quest to get it back. Finally he got it back and i also returned to FR. Now me and him (This time we're basically equal leaders, though he is the creator) are trying make it popular, fun, and as great as it was before, if not better :)

    *Updated as far as Summer 2012*


  6. What is the Guild Bank?

    The Guild Bank is a place where we keep our Funds for guild events, competitions, and the Guild Houses. It has its own account called Guilds Bank. Donations are extremely welcomed and will get you name in the Hall of Fame.

    Also the members in good standing with the guild can take out money from the guild bank, they need to contact the Bank's Manager (Jáy) and he will help you out and even help with you to have you repay the bank. No interest but you must pay the bank back within 1-2 weeks depending on how much you took out.

    COMING SOON: We are working to change the guild bank into a sort of market place just for Imperious Members


  7. What is the Guild House?

    The Guild House is an account in the guild where our best builders in good standing with the guild are able to get on and choose a lot and build in it. This is funded by the guild bank and its advantage is that the collection of all the best builders are on one account. You have to ask a leader or just ask Jáy if you wish to be apart of this.


  8. What are the guild colors?

    Our official guild colors are pink and black, although the site colors seem to be lime green and light blue.

Officer/Council/Leader Rules

  1. What do Officers do in the guild?

    If you are an officer, you have many responsibilities in the guild, one reason why you should just stay member and enjoy the guild and not become officer and have to work for it Here is a list of things officer have to do, and if neglected too much they will be made members again

    1. Officers have to devote their time to helping others, such as if somebody in the guild needs help leveling up and no members or recruits are helping them, it's the officers job to help them.

    2. Whenever anybody has a question about the guild and asks the guild chat or an officer personally the officer has to answer the questions even if they don't know the answer, even if they just tell them somebody else who might know the answer.

    3. Officers DO NOT have the power to delete anybody in the guild for any reason unless that person is causing guild drama, swearing, fights, and won't stop. It's the officers job, if a leader isn't online, to warn the person first, then demote them, then if it continues, to delete them (this is only if there isn't time for an officer to wait for advise from a leader. If an officer does deletes somebody without cause (making room for somebody else in the guild IS NOT a reason) then they will be demoted and if it happens more than once, they will be deleted.

    4. Officers also CAN NOT make anybody else in the guild an officer, they can recommend to the leaders to make somebody an officer, but officers can't promote people.

    5. Officers are able to promote people to member given those people have met the qualifications: they joined the guild site, they are not drama causers, and they have a couple lvl 20 jobs.

    6. It's the officers duty to invite people into the guild, though they CAN NOT invite random people, they can invite their friends and other people's friends. Whoever's friend it is that they are inviting has to be able to vouch for that person that they are friendly, not a noob, and will be good in the guild.

    7. Officers have to listen and do as any of the leaders says, unless it is completely unreasonable such as giving them money, in that case, make a complaint, most preferably in the Complaint Forms page and don't make a huge deal out of it.

    8. Officers have to help spread the news of whatever events are upcoming in the guild, such as party on Saturday, Paintball, and details, etc. Also they have to help get people to sign up for events while leaders aren't online, going around asking people if they want to join.

    9. Although this is not a necessary requirement it is one that many follow, officers will have to sacrifice coins, items, and gear for the benefit of the guild and their events. This will not be a soul responsibility of the officers as the leaders will take this on mostly.

  2. What are the Rules for the Imperious Council?

    The Imperious Council is split into two categories, the Critic Board and the just the Council in the Council Thread (though same people are in both of them).

    The Critic Board is a council which is basicaly a review board. Its where people discuss the latests events in the guild along with their issues and some idea's or opinions for future events. 

    The Council Thread is where the Imperious Council discusses major decisions and going-ons in the guild such as extension guilds, discussing new officers, impending issues, etc. 

    We usually make final decisions in the forums posted in the Imperious Council Category. these forums are for moderators only and have issues on them that we take votes on to see which side has the majority view. The max number of people allowed in the Council is 14 people. Also the rule is that out of every 5 Imperious Council threads we make youhave to respond to at least 3 of them unless something is stopping you, if you don't then you will be replaced as you aren't doing your job.

Member/Recruit Rules

  1. What are the rules for being a Member?

    Basically a member has no obligations in the guild in what they do, you just have to get online at least once a week (if you are unable to because of something such as vacation or grounded, etc. just message one of the leaders saying so and you won't be deleted) also to get on this website, though it's not mandatory to be active on it.

    The basic rules still apply though, as listed in the Demotions category, such as no swearing, represent the guild well, etc.


  2. What are the rules for being a Recruit?

    Being a recruit is basically just the stage you have to be for the guild to judge you. We need to decide that you aren't a beggar, hacker, and won't cause guild fights and drama. Once the guild sees that you aren't any of those, and you join the guild site, you will be made a member and won't be made a recruit unless you break the rules purposefully or numerous times.

    Though you have to be warned, that as being a recruit, you can't get any lower than that in the guild, so if you mess up, go offline for a long time, or anything else, you have a greater chance of being deleted than members.

Website Info & Rules

  1. What are the rules on the website?

    The rules for the website are pretty simple, no swearing on the guild chat, no swearing or using inappropriate images or videos on the Photo's and Video's Galleries, and just have fun playing the games and exploring it :P


  2. What is the Imperious Award?

    We do have a Member of the Month contest each month, the winner showing to be the most Imperious worthy. The Prize being 10,000 coins each winner and there can be one (1) to three (3) winners.

    The winners are the people that have helped out the guild the most or in the biggest way that month, and if you think you should be one then you can't just help out yourself or other people in the guild (though that helps a lot), go above and beyond by spreading our name on the Freerealmsinsider, or on the Freerealms forums, or in Freerealms, transform the guild by bringing in great friends that don't cause drama and are online often or making the ones that are in the guild better and make them feel welcomed.


  3. What is the Imperious Art Winner?

    Each month, Imperious will have a contest to see who has done the most as creating something to do with Imperious, it can be a picture, painting, a video, something in your House, etc. The top two (2) will win and have their name in Imperious history and 10,000 coins per piece that wins.

    As I, Jáy, am rewarding people, this does not apply to me. Also we have the right to deny this reward if nobody has done anything worth while. If you have something you want us to look at, just send a message to me, Jáy on this site, aka JayRenegade, or i might just randomly find something that you did. We are flexible as Art is very broad so if you did something and you want to know if it counts, just ask.


  4. What is Honorable Member of the Month?

    This award is given to those who have helped the guild a lot, different than that of the Imperious Award, as that could be opinionated and also is for those who have changed the guild, this award is given to those who have gotten the most people to join the guild (only counts if they are good people who doesn't cause fights and are active) and this guild site. The award as all others is your name in Imperious history and 10,000 coins per winner, with a maximum of two (2) winners.


  5. What is the Guild Chat?

    We have a 2 guild chats that anybody can join, it is a great place to chat no filter and pass the time. One of them has a voice chat (guild chat) and one of them we use to watch movies (movie night).


  6. What is Movie Night?

    Well usually 3-5 times a week we'll all get together and choose a movie to watch on the Guild Site Chat. Please don't ask what we are watching because i'm really not that organized, we'll pick when we're ready to watch it xD.

    I even changed the movie a couple times after we watched the first part because i saw it wouldn't be that great. Mostly these movies end up being Horror movies, sometimes Comedies, idk but thats what the guild loves. And we'll end up watching them really late at night on weekends (around 10 or 11 PM) or in the evenings on weekdays (6 or 7 PM).
