What is The Army of Light?

The Army of Light (AL) is a guild for the BioWare title, Star Wars: The Old Republic (SW:TOR). It focuses primarily on aggressive endgame operational raiding. The guild was established during the game's pre-launch period and has existed for over half a decade. Originally located on The Sanctum of the Exalted, The Army of Light now finds its home on The Harbinger server following a guild transfer off The Ebon Hawk in 2016. The AL does not discriminate based on race, origin, belief, culture, religion, political affiliation, time zone, country, local area, gender, or experience. However, a firm dedication to the guild is required for membership; individuals should be friendly, mature, respectful, and like-minded.



What Server does The Army of Light Call Home?


The AL's server is "The Harbinger", a US West based PvE server. However, all play styles and all time zoned individuals are welcome, as we are a diverse group and appreciate all aspects of game play.



How was The Army of Light Founded?

The foundation began to fall into place in late January of 2010. Dissatisfied with poor leadership and environments lacking in both maturity and dedication, Master Jephos Mispir struck out to see where the Force would lead him. He began to understand the fundamental flaw within the Republic – the allowance and even welcoming of Imperials and practitioners of the Dark Side, as well as the low character and integrity of many Republic citizens. People had become too casual with their affiliations and their own personal codes of behavior. Therefore, he began gathering others to help in creating a new Republic stronghold, free of the corruption and impurities that plagued so many others. Together they laid out the framework for what would ultimately become the guild, and shortly thereafter The Army of Light was officially established on February 22, 2010.



What does The Army of Light Offer?


The guild is a mid-size community, providing a sanctuary and a home for over 60 active citizens of the Republic. Membership makes one a part of one the oldest, most established, and highly respected organizations in the entire SW:TOR community. In addition to the large support network of experienced administrators and officers, the AL is hosted on a professionally purchased and maintained web domain that features deluxe ad-free forums, a private TeamSpeak3 voice server, and an interactive environment.




What is The Army of Light Recruitment Council?

The AL Recruitment Council (ALRC) is headed up by Ludwig VanCover and is responsible for maintenance of the guild’s Application Center, Visitor's Welcome Center, SW:TOR Recruitment Thread, reviewing applicants, and seeking out new recruits. In addition, the ALRC helps acclimate new recruits to the guild environment, is available to answer questions, and supervises the completion of the Trial Requirements.



Who Leads The Army of Light?


The Army of Light is led by Guildmaster Ludwig VanCover, Assistant Guildmaster Anna Mistwalker, and a group of Officers and Commanders.



What is The Army of Light's "Open Door" Policy?


The AL provides official feedback avenues for members to make their ideas known for suggestions and recommendations to improve the quality of the guild. All members also have full access to speak directly to the High Council via our Forum's Private Messaging system. We believe that communication and level-heads are the lifeblood of a successful guild community.



What should I know about The Army of Light Chat Channels?

All Guests and Members are expected to adhere to proper behavioral etiquette while in chat, whether it be voice, text, or in-game. For a complete listing of Chat/Guild Rules, please visit our main website and the Temple Rotunda section of our forums.



How does one Apply for Membership to The Army of Light?

Click the ‘Apply Now’ tab at the top of the website. This will take you to the AL Application Center which is located on our Forums. Copy the application questions into a new thread. The title should simply be [your name]’s Application (Please do not use the "Description" field). Members of our Recruitment Council will then review it and typically respond to you within a few days. (We apologize in advance for any delays that can crop up in the process from time to time.) Applications will only be approved if they are well thought out, not overly brief, and have proper grammar and spelling. While you wait, you are welcome to tour our Visitor's Welcome Center or contact an officer in-game. Recruitment Council leadership is best able to answer any questions you may have. Please check back on your application thread for updates and/or additional instructions. Please note that Applicants are generally limited to those 18 years of age or older.



What Type of Person is The Army of Light Seeking to Recruit?


The Army of Light is seeking those who are dedicated, mature, and willing to support the Galactic Republic and the guild. While we do not wish to limit potential recruits before the actual application process is complete, there are major requirements that must be met: maturity, honor, commitment, humility, and respect. These are defining characteristics that all AL members must possess as lack of these traits is not tolerated. As stated earlier, The Army of Light is an equal opportunity guild. Subscribers and Free-to-Players are both welcome.



Are There any other Requirements for Membership?


Members are to be of the highest personal character. A deep dedication to continuous learning, integrity, maturity, humility, and loyalty is mandatory for membership. While we warmly welcome members of other guilds who wish to place a character with us, we do prefer The Army of Light be your primary guild (or at least receive your ample attention). We believe hard work, contributions to the guild and the greater good, maturity, selflessness, and activity should be rewarded.



How does Another Republic Guild form an Alliance or Formal Friendship with The Army of Light?


All guilds wishing a formal (or informal) arranged with The Army of Light are encouraged to speak with Ludwig VanCover or any guild officer. To be considered, your guild must be active and like-minded. While we do not expect our allies to be long-tenured or massive in size, or to share all of our policies, we do expect them to hold to the principles of mutual defense, honor, respect, maturity, and personal dignity. The benefits of such a relationship include access to our allied network in-game chat channel and coordination for various activities, to name a few. Formal Friendships can be with guilds of any faction or server.



Where can Additional Answers be Found or what if there is a Technical issue?


Additional information can be found in our forums. Private Message inquiries can be sent to Ludwig VanCover. If you are having issues with TeamSpeak3, please speak to Ludwig VanCover.
