The Hands of Darkness
OOC Who we are?:
The First European based Sith roleplay guild for SW:ToR▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬════════▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
"Without strife, your victory has no meaning. Without strife, you do not advance. Without strife, there is only stagnation."
"Treachery is the way of the Sith."
The Hands of Darkness are a shadowy unseen faction amongst the Sith, a loose alliance of Sith lords unhappy and bitter about the Emperors withdrawal from Republic Space and the tedious cold war it has caused. They plot to spark a new Great War through the use of Corruption and Power, their touch can be felt through every rank of the Sith, recruiting those who beleived the Republic should have been crushed once and for all.
Striking openly and from the shadows the hands will not rest till they see the light of their enemies the Jedi extinguished from the galaxy once and for all, and they will use any means possible even if it means defying the words of their Emperor.
We are a Mature European Sith Roleplay guild for the upcoming MMORPG Star Wars; The Old Republic.
What was once a Community for Sith Rp (The Sith Council) has now turned into a Rp Guild Formed by Darth Derriphan (England) and Darth Mynock (Netherlands) two experianced and enthusiastic Sith roleplayers who have both lead guilds, roleplayed as Sith previously in games such as Star Wars Galaxies and share a love and passion for all aspects of the Dark side of the force.
It is now our aim to became known for quality Roleplay and be the leading Sith guild on the Server we choose to play on at the release of the SW:TOR.
How Can I join?:
The Hands are open to all who show they are willing to act maturely, roleplay well, learn the Sith ways.
Any Ranks within the Sith Empire can join the Hands of Darkness from the lowly but courageous Sith Trooper to the mighty and evil Dark Lord. It is our aim to have a good spread of players and cater to all that seek to join.
To join please visit our Guilds forum and fill out one of the applications, there it will be reviewed by the the heads of the guild.
Will you PVP?:
While we are primarily a hardcore RP guild we do not disallow our members to participate in player vs player activities, as the very tenants of the Sith encourage our members show Superiority anyway they can, be this through devious political manipulations or all out blood shed.
What are your views on the Light Side and Jedi?:
We have a deep hatred of the Jedi; seeing them as fools, we believe they are the biggest threat to our plans, and those we cannot turn must be eradicated!
IC: We speak primarily in Basic, occasionally using ancient Sith words. OOC: We are mostly English speaking but due to the wide variety of languages that spread across across Europe we do not discriminate, though ask members to respect each other and act maturely.
What are the Ranks within the Guild?
We currently have a well thought out ranking structure that we beleive will help us in our victory over the Republic.
Below you will see what each rank means.
> A newly recruited, Force Sensitive, devotee to the Hands of Darkness. Adepts are expected to prove themselves worthy to their superiors in order to attain prestige and promotion. Adepts are required to learn the ways of the Sith andshow promise in both skill and devotion.
>Newly recruited, Non Force Sensitive, infantry to the military side of the Hands of Darkness. Soldiers are expected to show loyalty and respect to the chain of command and fulfil their duties with no questions asked. Only then will they be worthy for promotion.
>An Acolyte is a Sith who has shown devotion and skill in the dark side of the Force, enough to be promoted. Acolytes still have much to learn but must conduct themselves as role models to Adepts and prove themselves worthy to betaken as an apprentice.
>This rank is earned due to displaying keen leadership abilities and skill onthe battlefield. Sergeants will haveproven themselves in the eyes of their superior and thus given the chance tolead small squads in the name of the Hands of Darkness.
>This rank is obtained by Acolytes who haven proven themselves worthy enough, inskill and knowledge of Sith teachings, to have been noticed by a Sith Warrior or Master. Once taken as an Apprentice they must serve their master well for itis only him/her that can decide when they are ready to face the trials.
>This rank is given when a Sergeant has shown a knack for leadership and bravery in the name of the Hands of Darkness. Lieutenants have shown that they canfollow the chain of command with no remorse.

>Captains are high ranking foot soldiers of the Hands of Darkness. They have proven themselves to be excellent leadership figures and firm representatives of the guild. To be promoted further they must show obedience and tactical talent.
> When a Sith Warrior goes above and beyond the call of duty they will be promoted to that of Sith Master. To obtain this rank one must show excellent skill in lightsaber combat and knowledge of the force. They will have proven that they can pass on their knowledge to underlings and represent the Hands of Darkness in the best way possible. Sith Masters will be given delicate and important tasks, by Shadow Hands, that lesser ranking members cannot be trusted to handle.
> When Captains have shown tactical prowess and unwavering loyalty they will become Admirals. Admirals are sturdy authoritative figures within the guild. They have climbed the ranks and will receive important duties and missions from Moffs.
> Bounty Hunters have pledged their services to the Hands of Darkness. They work directly for the Shadow Council and thus only take orders from them and the Head Bounty Hunter.
Head Bounty Hunter
> The Head Bounty Hunter upholds the rules of engagement for his Bounty Hunter subordinates. The Head Bounty Hunter is responsible for receiving orders from the Shadow Council and assigning them to individual Bounty Hunters. TheBounty Hunter in this position is strict and determined with each mission given to him to assign, for if any of his Bounty Hunters fail
it is on his head.This is an officer position and therefore has extra responsibility for upholding law and maintaining peace within the guild.
> Shadow Hands are the right hand men/women of the Council. Sith Masters can only attain this rank by being personally chosen by the Shadow Council to be authorized with extra responsibility. Shadow Hands will be outstandingly skilled in the ways of the Sith and show an understand of the guilds goals and ideals. They will make sure that members are abiding by the rules but also be there to help in anyway they can. Shadow Hands answer directly to the Shadow Council and especially to their immediate superiors (Grand Inquisitor and GrandMaster)
> Moffs have been promoted to such a rank through showing leadership/dedication and good representation of the Hands of Darkness.

> The Shadow Council is comprised of 6 members, the Leaders of the Guild(Dark Lord/Lady) and Sub-Leaders of the Guild. The Council is the ultimate authority of the Hands of Darkness and all decision making is done by its members. Each Council member has their own specific title and they are as follows: Dark Lord, Dark Lady, Grand Inquisitor, Grand Master, Grand Moff and Grand Admiral. Each member of the Council has their own specific duties but all are bound by one main duty; To lead the Hands of Darkness.
