The Silver Sun Republic is an RP-PvP community that has a long and distinguished history serving as the core element of many larger alliances and nations across several different MMOs including Darkfall Online, Age of Conan, Shadowbane, Mortal Online and Planetside.
The purpose of our guild is to provide immersion as it enhances gameplay and not to hold ourselves back by overbearing structures or processes.
We leverage a lot of US Military experience through our membership base and our working partnership with MilitaryGamers.com (community of current and former US Military).
The Republic is broken up into several Ministries; The Ministry of War exists as the military staff who plan, train and execute military operations; The Ministry of State handles internal matters of government, justice, defense and mentorship of new members; The Executive Ministry handles external matters of government, diplomacy, heraldry, registration of arms and administration of forums and meetings.
Citizens of the Republic also have the opportunity to start or join their own Great Houses that further refine the gameplay or style of a given player. Each greater Noble of the Republic has their own Great House to which others may pledge their loyalty. Other groups may enter the Republic as a House or Great House and retain their own identity.
The social structure of the Republic matches up with our organization and the guild system in Life is Feudal. Those of the landed nobility derive their authority and autonomy through feudal agreements. The non-landed Grandi class may be appointed as governors and mayors on behalf of the feudal lords upon whose lands they govern.
The Military is broken down into the professional military and the militia with everyone contributing in some way to the fight and the community as a whole.
Together with MilitaryGamers.com we've developed Joint Task Force Viper which seeks to leverage the real world military experience between our two communities. It forms the basis for our involvement in PvP and the civil government structure that supports our military efforts. The focus on PvP and the military element lends itself to streamline the civil structure to ensure that we are effective and flexible enough to respond to any emerging threats.
Silver Sun Republic has developed and contributed to many high profile alliances and nations most notably the Kingdom of Hyperion in which we provided the early Command and Control elements to truly dominate the PvP landscape. Our core group was forced into hiatus due to RL military commitments and Hyperion began to dwindle. Our new integration with MilitaryGamers.com will help us employ even more forces on par with our principles of maneuver warfare and flexible control concepts.
In Planetside 2 we've been able to field highly capable forces integrating air and ground assets to provide truly game changing effects. As we develop our own systems and tactics in cooperation with MG we hope to achieve even more impact in the field.
