We had a very successful guild officer meeting. The main goal was to establish a solid plan for the future for guild leadership. We've established strong "Game Captains", or Praetors, for SWTOR and WoW, who will lead the guild in those various chapters. The Overwatch Chapter will remain fluid but Nwahs will continue to provide leadership there. Each chapter will also have officers (Arbiters) and Marshals to lead players in content and recruiting in those games.
We have also decided to remove our forum activity requirements in lieu of more generic "activity requirements": If a player is considered inactive by his/her chapter's leadership team, they will be removed from the guild. We will now rely on a Google Sheets "Master Roster" instead of the forums roster to keep track of all our members.
The Trials process will be changed drastically. No longer will we require a potentially new member to apply, return to the forums, and spend 2 weeks performing tasks. Because the forums will become an optional tool much like GroupMe and Discord, the application button will still exist as a way for a potential recruit to let us know they'd like to join, but the "Trials" will simply be a time of holding "Trainee" rank until they've gotten into voicechat and spent 3-5 hours of group content. At that time, an officer or member can vouch for the new person to achieve full membership rank.
Because of this, Friend of the Guild rank will be much less necessary.
Chapter Leaders will decide whether or not they'll just have a Trainee rank or keep the Trainee and Initiate rank, as they will more or less be the same thing in our new vision for the path to membership.
Chapter Leaders will have full control over the way their in-game guild is run.
For more information, you can read the meeting minutes or ask an officer :)
The goals for all these changes is to have a more modern approach to recruiting and ensuring members of Pax Republica still hold our values dear.
Hey all! It's time for a guild contest! This is to celebrate our 7.25 years as a guild (lol).
1st Place: A $20 gift card to BEST BUY, courtesy of Arbiter Narric who works there.
2nd and 3rd Place will be awarded in-game SWTOR credits or WOW gold, amounts to be determined later. All scores will be immortalized in our hall of fame.

The following people have been promoted in the guild :D
Nylos - ARBITER
Very well deserved, our most knowledgable and active member of our WoW Chapter. Nylos is now a full officer in the guild. Thank you!
Morov - ARBITER
Also well deserved. Just super awesome guy to have in the guild, great leadership skills. Welcome to the officer staff!
His new rank and privileges reflect his activity and knowledge in SWTOR and other areas of communication with the guild. Congrats!
Kod1ak (Logan) - Justicar
Undying loyalty to the guild and 4 solid years of service... this is probably long overdue. You don't see him leading from the front of many groups but he's certainly a leader of the guild in other ways. Congratulations!
A great leader, funny guy, and active member. Cheers!
Error has been in the guild since March and is overdue for a promotion! Cheers man!
HAPPY 7 YEARS TO PAX REPUBLICA! How many great memories have we made together? How many cool people have come through these doors to game with us? It's been a great ride :)
