About the Guild
Who are The Phoenix Imperium?
The Phoenix Imperium are a friendly international community of gamers, spread across several nations and timezones playing many different games. We started off as a group interested in a developing sci-fi MMO (still in development at time of writing) but have branched into multiple games and genres whilst we waited
What sort of community are you?
As a community we have members that like to share their skills, be it writing, coding, drawing, you name it. We try to encourage that atmosphere and it's one of the things we intend to focus more on as we grow. We do at times also participate in roleplay and we aim to introduce roleplay writing competitions in the future for those interested. But we try not to force our members to participate in things that don't interest them.
How big are you?
We're currently a small community but we're looking to grow in size. However, we do like to maintain a certain community feel, so we have a rather simple recruitment process that involves having a brief chat with one or a couple of our leaders. I wouldn't like to call it an interview, because that's not really what it is. We've rarely rejected people, but it comes from the hard-learned experience that we do it.
You're an international community, but you play on US servers?
Yeah, in most cases our European members can connect relatively easily to US servers, particularly East Coast servers, so as a rule when both our European members and American members play a game together it makes sense to aim for servers on the US East Coast.
What game styles to you play?
Being primarily casual, we focus on PvE, but we'll take part in sPVP and WvWvW should our members wish to do so. WvWvW can be exceptionally fun in sufficiently sized groups, so we'd certainly recommend it, but then we don't force our community to play in any particular way.
How do I join?
Please visit our website forums at http://phoeniximperium.org/forum and create a new thread in the Recruitment forum (there's also an instruction thread there). We'll aim to get back to you as soon as practically possible. Note that while our minimum age is 16, that's the exception rather than the rule. We prefer our members to be 18 or over, or otherwise demonstrate the ability to cope with mature content. We can be a bit sweary at times and the like, and we try not to censor our members.
Why should I join?
We can't force you to join us, of course, but if you fancy a relatively laid-back and relaxed community that occasionally does roleplaying, competitions, events, and the like, join in! We welcome people willing to volunteer time and ideas too, so if you'd like to get a bit more hand's on and involved we'll do our best to provide the tools to get stuff going.
