    Alright Herring is a great guy to play with and I enjoyed his company very much (Zhartig btw Herring). The app needs a little more meat added to it. Tell us some more about yourself, elaborate on some things. I would love to have you in the guild but by the app others don't know you or how good of a player you can be. Read the Sticky by Stigma to get an idea of what to add. I'm only one person and can't guarantee you'll get in just cause I say so. The Boss may like me but I don't think he's going to let that application slide, so please do a favor because we like you and your gameplay style just take a little extra time on the app. Hope this helps some. Very Happy

    I agree with Myshthrak, we need some more information here. The App is pretty bare bones as it stands.

    Can you tell us a funny story, elaborate some more about your work, or tell us a bit more about the wife or kid? We really want to get to know you outside of the WAR game world.

    Appreciate the in game nods from the other guild members here, but our application process is a good thing, so please check out the samples. Just remember you might have to change your handle for the bulletin board to post another reply here.

    Yeah, need to know how you feel about what you want out of a guild, specifically post 40. Tell us a bit more about yourself, and you'll more than likely earn my vote given the testimonials.

    Ok, more info, let me break it into a few categories:

    Interests and beliefs:
    Well, I like long walks on short beaches after a long ride on the short bus. And, oh, i love the way champagne makes my nose tickle. I beleive in gun rights, they all should have the right to vote. I am suspicious of the motives of most cats and even more suspcious of the dogs incessent sniffing.

    On Gaming:
    I am a casual gamer but a gamer for years! I waited in line for a Turbo Grafix 16 and my first gaming system was an intelivsion. Uhhggghhgg, it sucks to be old.

    Before my son was born and I got promoted, I was a very serious gamer. FPS, strategy, RP's...if it was good, I was playing it.

    I am a very team-centric player. Until the advent and widespread use of voice chat, I favored the glass cannon and heavy melee type of avatars. Since voice-chat, I have favored the healing classes. The thing that stokes me about Warhammer is the ability of the healing classes to get into the fray and throw out some DPS.

    If I may brag a bit, in WoW I was a very in very high demand as a healer and was often first choice for the difficult instances in my guild. I was never the top uber-garbed and equipped player but I did have the best reputation for on-time and consistant heals/support and teamwork.

    Family and Job (I put these in the same category because I actually love both these aspects of my life):
    I am almost 40. I have been married for almost 10 years. My wife and I move to Atlanta from Fort Wayne, Indiana with just the shirts on our back. No friends, family, or a job. We came in search of better opportunity. We have been blessed with a 2 year old son, Jackson. We just built a great house just outside of Buckhead, GA.

    I have a great job. I manage 10 salespeople responsible for $25m in annual sales for a fortune 100 company. I have a bachelors in Psycholgy and a Masters degree in Business Administration. My wife is in surgical sales.

    Please consider me, as i know I would fit your Guild based on my observations in game and playing with your members and talking to them on vent. I look forward to seeing you guys in-game. I just hit Teir2 on Herring and i look forward to joining your guild.

    te][/quote]

    Let me address Andway's statement. I absolutly do not want a hard-core guild. I just dont have the time. More important, i dont have the mindset. I do not want to play with peeps that treat a game like a job. You may have missed my sarcasm to the humor question. My humor tends to be very dry and sarcastic.

    Funny story?

    I dont know if this falls under the funny story catogory or the crying-out-for help category. Since I love to cook, let me put this in the form of a recipe.

    WTF Are You Doing Stew
    1 part Friday Night
    5 parts of tough work week
    6 Parts Red Bull/Vodka
    2 Parts Stell Artrois
    1 Sleepy Wife returning from a sales trip
    1 Heaping Cup of ME wanting to rank up on a new game

    First take on part Friday night and marinate it in 5 parts tough work week. Next quickly add 2 parts Stella, followed immedialty by 6 parts Vodka/Red Bull. Mix until sugar/caffine/guarna/alcohol buzz is at a high simmer. Introduce 1 part sleepy wife on a couch. When said wife is completly rested and out, add a dash of "sprint upstairs" and the Heaping Cup of ME wanting to rank up on a new game.

    Wait 6 hours.

    After 6 hours this stew is ready for serving. Serve with a wife walking into the compter room looking at a pased-out husband at 4 AM. Headphones on. Monitor dispaying a Goblin Shaman log on screen. Head on keyboard. Mouse in hand. Goes great with a side of "Who did I marry pudding?" or a glass of "You are an idiot Merlot" Definatly not served with any sort of pie for husband.

    ANyone ever used this recipe?
