About chumbucket and Associates [cA] chumbucket and Associates [cA] is a guild of thieves. We're here to enjoy at ourselves while providing a service to the shard, viz., we play the role of genuinely dangerous enemies. We don't PK you in destard and leave your recall reagents. We will loot you, scam you, steal from you, and otherwise do things that you need to worry about. We will take everything you have if we can. And we'll post funny stories about it on the forums. The Recruitment Process chumbucket and Associate is always interested in recruiting new members, but we are very selective. New members are accepted on a provisional basis only. They are given the rank of Junior Associate. Junior Associates are expected to actively participate in guild activities (e.g., permit enforcement, home security, etc.). After one month, Junior Associates must submit an application for promotion to rank of Associate. Whether or not the application is accepted will depend on the outcome of a secret vote by Senior Associates. It will help if Senior Associates know that you have been active in guild activities. New Associates remain in the guild as long they remain active, but will need reapply if they wish to join the guild after a significant period of time away from the guild. Associates with a history of activity and contributing to the guild will attain the status of good standing and, thus, will no longer need to reapply to the guild if they go on an extended hiatus. Senior Associates are by appointment from chumbucket and the current Senior Associates only. Do not ask to become a Senior Associate. Guild Rules There are very few rules, but they are taken very seriously. 1. No HAX of any kind. cA members are expected to follow all shard rules. 2. No epithets (e.g., 'nigger', 'fag', etc.) on the forums, in IRC, or in game. 3. Respect the guild and all guild members at all times. 4. Do not cause shard staff unnecessary problems. Recruitment Send an application to chumbucket that answers the following questions. 1. How long have you played UO? This shard? 2. Who are your other characters? What are their names, stats, and skills? 3. Do you have your own gold? How much? House? What kind? How many? 4. Do you agree to obey all guild rules? 5. Why do you want to join cA? 6. Please provide some documentation of you engaged in [cA]-like activities. A Note from chumbucket [cA] prefers quality over quantity. We want members who are both mature and capable. We, therefore, do NOT accept every applicant, nor do we automatically promote Junior Associates to permanent members. If you are rejected, please don't take it personally. We are far more likely to reject applications that do not include ALL of the required information, that are extremely poorly written (we're not grammar police but you should show some effort and note if English is not your native language) or if you do not have a fully developed character ready to immediately put on the stone. "How Can I Get Accepted?" The answer is simple: Show us that you would be a good fit for [cA]. We want players that (i) are capable UO players - You should know the ins and outs of Ultima Online and the shard. (ii) do what we do - You should steal, scam, lie, and probably make some funny posts about it on the forums! You should also ENJOY all of these things and not be so concerned about PHAT LOOTZ and RED POTS ONLY PvP. We don't want to keep you from doing those things, but fundamentally [cA] members don't care as much about those things as they do being thieves. (iii) are mature - You don't have to be a certain age, but you have to show us that you aren't some online video game weirdo who constantly uses racial epithets, freaks out over a video game, etc.. We can't cope with that. We just want to have a good time. If you are like that, you are probably being looked at as a target and not as a potential recruit.
