Mandalorians of Recluse was founded as an RP Guild to promote the honorable, Clan-based aspects of Mandalorian Culture and to bring to light a side of the elite galactic hunters not usually seen.
What timeline does Recluse role play in?
It is currently 13 ATC, in accordance with SWTOR's data in wookieepedia and the Galaxy Alliance Timeline.
Does my character have to be Mandalorian to be part of the guild?
95% of the time, this will be answered YES. There are special rules and caveats to RP as a Sith or Imperial Soldier affiliated with Recluse, however these personas must be cleared with the Recluse RP Officer. That being said, there is Legends Lore and Recluse Lore that permits the use of Force Using Mandalorians within Recluse, and Imperial Agents can easily RP as Mandalorians themselves. Do I need to be on the Empire Faction to be part of the guild?
Yes. Due to in game chat mechanics and guild mechanics you must be Imperial to be in this guild.
I am not sure what my character will be. He/She is new to the Hunt and is lost. Can they join?
Yes. A large part of Mandalorian Culture is adopting those wayward warriors who show potential to be Mandokar'la. Even if you don't know what being Mandalorian means, we'll teach you.
Is there an age requirement for the guild? No, however "common courtesy" and "maturity" are mandatory. We pride ourselves on maintaining a family-friendly atmosphere, as many of our members have younger RL family members who are within eye-or-earshot.
I roleplay my character as a Mandalorian Clan Leader. Will he/she be allowed to keep that rank?
This depends on the manner in which you approach Recluse. Recluse itself does have established Clans, and while we are not actively seeking more Clans at this moment, we are open to the prospect if you feel your clan can fill a new unique niche. That being said, if you wish to apply for an available Clan Lead role in an established Recluse Clan, that can be facilitated as well via application/interview process.
My alt is in another guild, do I need to move them to Recluse to join? Can my alt also join even though I do not role play with him/her?
No. You are not mandated to move any toons or alts into Recluse unless it is what you want. We do request a level of participation and visibility, however we do make our best attempts to ensure you're not being limited or forced into playing.
I am interested in joining, but my character is not a Mandalorian. Would they be welcomed into the guild?
Yes. While the vast majority of our players are Mandalorian personas, we will do our best to ensure that Aruetal have a place with us as well. Note: As stated above, Active Sith and Imperial Personas will need to be cleared with the Recluse RP Officer before being admitted to active RP.
I don't have any Mandalorian Armor. Will this be a problem?
Wearing Mandalorian Armor, Beskar'gam, is part of being Mandalorian. It's part of the culture. That being said, the Guild does have a repository and a reserve of Mandalorian Gear we can look at arranging for purchase from the Guild Bank at a price discounted from the GTN.
Are there any species restrictions in joining?
If you can make it, you can play it. We are even open to Non-Canon or Non-Active "I play as this race" options.
Are there any restriction in crystals used?
What do you think we are, Jedi? We're Mandalorians, and the Mandalorian Knights either fashion their own lightsabers, or use the lightsaber of a respectable foe. We don't care what color it is as long as it can be used to bring honor and glory to Mandalore.
Are romantic relationships allowed?
Romantic relationships are a large aspect of family and clan life. However, as a mature and family-friendly guild, we do require that overt sexual communications and innuendos are avoided as much as possible.
Are marriages allowed?
Yes. There's even a specific Mandalorian Ceremony for it.
Are there any special requirements in joining?
We do have requirements per ranks. You can find those on our forums.
What is the process for joining?
If you are interested in joining Recluse, you will have to do the following: -Fill out the application. -Write up or have a background for your character. Decide why they would want to be Mandalorian.
-Come to one of our events and role play.
-An interview will be set up between you and a member of the Ka'ra Council. This will be handled in character.
