We've had quite some promising applications so far! The community response is quite gratifying.
Since most people aren't quite sure how their character is going to pan out yet, or how they'll slot into the guild, I'm considering doing a pre-launch brainstorming session over some communication medium. Just to throw some ideas around and work out details for those who want their character to be initially in the guild, or recruited near release. I'll poke around for feedback and let everyone know when we're decided when and where.
Edit: Our website is now up and running and set for forum participation, so feel free to come over and sign up. We'll approve people pretty snappy.
We're gonna be putting a lot of info down over the next few days via the forum so stay tuned.
