Novus has always been a small, casual guild of online friends and family. We're focused on playing together & having fun. Most of us are older players, with jobs, families, and responsibilities outside the game. All of those responsibilities come before the game. We're not ****-bent on server firsts, we don't care if other guilds down the latest boss before we do, we're not worried if scheduled raids don't happen because someone couldn't make it.
Life goes on, and the purps will be here tomorrow.
Most of us have been playing MMOs since they first hit the 'net (some of us even remember the days of MUD and MUSH), and Novus was originally formed as a World of Warcraft guild on the Horde side of the Korialstrasz server. A good number of us had been playing WoW since the beta days, and most of that time had been spent playing together. We've been through server transfers, expansion packs, and extended vacations. Along the way, most of us have spent at least some time in PvP guilds, small guilds, big guilds, hardcore raiding guilds, and casual guilds. We've run or run with some of the best guilds around, doing 40-man, 25-man, and 10-man raids.
In April of 2011, a handful of us picked ourselves up and set out for a fresh start in Telara, to try our hands at RIFT.
Novus is currently focused on leveling, exploring Telara, and learning the game, but guild instance runs, RIFT hunting, and PVP aren't uncommon. Once the dust of the move settles, guild events will likely be scheduled for a few days a week, typically starting around 8:00 PM ET.
We don't do DKP, we don't do loot ladders. Our only loot rule is common sense, knowing that our goal is to make progress together, that the best guilds and the best raids happen when everyone can bring their best to the table, and that having better geared players around us makes it easier for all of us to excel. Use common sense, common courtesy, and don't be greedy.
Novus is currently open to new members. We're not recruiting for specific roles... We're simply hoping to find players who are a fit for our play style and approach to gaming, and who are interesting in finding a guild to grow with and stay with for the long haul.
