- friendly, mature community, easy-going and fun orientated

- ~40 active members (logged in within the last 24 hours)
- interested in joining? just let us know, here, on Discord, or anywhere
The Ludophiles guild is called "Ordo Ludophilia". It's still a rather loose group with no specific focus or goal but that might change in the process of growing and developing.
Currently there are 100+ total members, and usually 40+ active members (=logged in whithin the last 40 hours.
Most are interested in PvE but any approach to the game and any playstyle is welcome. It doesn't matter whether you spend all your time pedantically executing thoroughly planned builds in PvP or whether you play very casually rather solo in a complete explorative style and just enjoy some guild chat once in a while.
However, let's start with the following guidelines and expand them if necessary:
- don't be a dick
- you should have a basic understanding of either English or German (or both)
Platforms, server, alliance, etc
The Ludophiles guild called "Ordo Ludophilia" is currently active on PC but inactive on PS4 (but if you are invited to change that).
The Ludophiles guild is currently available on the European Megaserver only.
Characters you create are bound to the Megaserver they've been created on. But it is possible to create different characters on both Megaservers. So if you haven't played on the European Megaserver yet just choose it after starting the application and create a new character.
Originally the guild was associated with the Ebonheart Pact alliance but was always open with for players of any alliance and after the One Tamriel update in October 2016 alliance association doesn't really matter much anymore.
The alliance a character is associated with depends on its race. Even if you don't have created character in the Ebonheart Pact you can join the Ordo Ludophilia guild, guild membership is based on accounts not characters.
Guild membership is based on accounts, each account can have up to 5 characters, each of which might be associated with any of the 3 alliances. Consequently we can play in any alliance, also each account can be in several guilds, so everything quite flexible.
Joining the guild
The guild is called Ordo Ludophilia. You can join it as soon as you are actually in game with you character, but at that early stage it might be not much of a help.
Joining the guild is easiest by accepting an invitation to the guild. To send you an invitation we need to know your TESO User ID for PC or your PSN Online ID for PS4.
Best post it with a little introduction in this thread or on Discord, alternatively send your ID in a private conversation or a private message to a Ludophiles account on any platform.
What we can use to organize:
- this website
- Discord: https://discord.gg/Ludophiles
- TeamSpeak (out of function currently, so only if a lot of people are interested)
Roles, ranks & permissions
For info on ranks & roles please check out the post further below: Guild roles, ranks & permissions
Werewolf & vampire bites
For Werewolf and Vampire bites please check out the following thread: How to become a Werewolf or Vampire
Bank & store
If you want to sell something please put it in the guild store for a fair price. If you just want to get rid of something that still might be of use for someone else please put it in the guild store for a couple of gold. The guild bank should only be used for crafting materials or consumables you want to give away.
PvE activity is taking place regularly but randomly. Best ask in guild chat or on Discord. The plan is to organize PvE activities with a fixed schedule asap. If you want to help with that please let us know.
Ludophiles PvE officers:
PvP is optional and takes place in dedicated zones (Cyrodiil). PvP in Cyrodiil still doesn't mean you have to kill other players, you can as well increase the standing on your alliance by doing coop or solo quests.
Ludophiles PvP officers:
Feel free to ask any questions & make any suggestions, best by posting in this thread, alternatively in a private conversation, or anywhere.
