Argent Watch was initially founded on January 1, 2015 on the Ebon Hawk server on SW:TOR. The goal of the Argent Watch is to role play as a coalition of forces seeking to protect the Republic and the galaxy. Those who are only interested in following the Dark Side/Sith teachings or Imperial ways will not be accepted into this guild.
What timeline does Argent Watch role play in?
Argent Watch follows the timeline of the Galaxy Alliance. <20 ATC>
Does my character have to be a specific profession to be part of the guild?
No, any profession is welcome. The goal is to find people who want to roleplay as part of the coalition of forces. This could be a Jedi, a trooper or a smuggler. Role play will allow us to take on more roles than just the professions in SW:TOR. It is about the role-play, not the in-game profession. Do I need to be republic to be part of the guild?
Yes. Due to in game chat mechanics and guild mechanics you must be Republic to be in this guild. Argent Watch does not have an Imperial version of the guild.
I am role playing as a Sith/Dark Jedi/Fallen Jedi/etc and want to be redeemed/converted/change sides, can I still join?
Of course. Argent Watch does accept those seeking redemption. They are known as the Redeemed with the guild. Anyone who wishes to join as a Redeemed member, they must be committed to the journey going from a former Dark Jedi, fallen Jedi, or Sith all the way to joining one of the Force branches. This process will take months. If you are seeking a quick turn around, then this is not the guild for you.
I am role playing a Gray Force user, will I be forced to switch to a more light side view?
We have a section for those who follow a less traditional path of the Gray Jedi. They are known as the Akar Kesh. They follow the ways of the Je'daii and have rules that must be followed. Please check out this post for more information.
Is there an age requirement for the guild?
No, but we are looking for mature players. Age does not mean a person is mature. We are a family friendly guild. This means to watch your language in guild chat and other custom chat channels we use as part of the Galactic Alliance. We are aware that we all slip up from time to time, but repeatedly being told to watch the choice of language or ignoring a leader of the Argent Watch asking you to cut it out can lead to your removal from the guild. If you like to taunt, make rude comments or swear at people through tells, guild chat, group chat, in-game mails, etc, you will not fit in with this guild. Respect to all others is a key component to this guild.
I role play my character as a Jedi Master/Jedi Knight. Will he/she be allowed to keep that rank?
It depends on the interview process. If your character shows the qualities that we are looking for in a member, the chances are high. If your character has some issues that raise concerns within the Leadership, you may get asked to take a lower rank or be on a probationary rank. This length varies on the level of concern. If you have role played out the training of your Jedi to the rank of Jedi Master or Jedi Knight, your training will be reviewed against the training we do. If there are areas that we feel you need to accomplish to maintain this rank, we will ask that you complete these areas of training. If you choose not to, we reserve the right to remove you from the guild.
Additionally, the rank of Jedi Master is considered an accomplishment. It is rare that we will be accepting those who have this rank already. We have requirements for those in Argent Watch to reach Jedi Master and expect anyone who joins us with that rank to accomplish these requirements as well. If you choose not to do them, we will either ask that you start as a Jedi Knight or will remove you from the guild.
My alt is in another guild, do I need to move them to Argent Watch to join? Can my alt also join even though I do not role play with him/her?
No, if you have another character in another guild, they will not be asked or expected to join Argent Watch. Since we are part of the Galactic Alliance, many people are in several of the guilds.
I am interested in joining, but my character is not a Jedi or force sensitive. Would they be welcomed into the guild?
Yes, there is a Republic and Freelancer section to the guild. This will include those who will be working on the ship, the ground military and the space squadrons. Those who are not in the Republic or the military also can join the Freelancers, though their goals and purpose must fit in with the Argent Watch.
Are there any species restrictions in joining?
There are no species restrictions. You can play any species you like.
Are there any restriction or extra rules?
Yes, given that we have several areas within the guild. Please check out this forum for more information.
Are romantic relationships allowed?
Romantic relationships are greatly frowned upon in the Jedi Order. Therefore, any member who is role playing as a Jedi in the Jedi Order will not be allowed to be in a romantic relationship. However, we do have Corellian Jedi as well. In lore, it is common for Corellian Jedi to have families.
If you decide to join as a Jedi Order member, flip flopping will be greatly discouraged. We understand that role play will lead each of our characters in different directions than we planned. If you change your mind and wish to join the Corellian Jedi to be in a romantic relationship, be aware that we won't allow someone to jump back and forth between the areas.
Are marriages allowed?
According to lore, Jedi marriages are rare in the Jedi Order. Given that there is a Corellian Jedi section to Argent Watch, no Jedi in the Jedi Order will be allowed to marry. If you wish to follow through and get married, you will be pointed to the Corellian Jedi or another section within the guild. If you feel that you should be allowed to remain in the Jedi Order and be married, we will remove you from the guild since we have avenues for this type of role play.
