Duchy of Wessex: A modern guild built on a feudal society

Post by Azzerhoden » 13 Sep 2014, 01:00

Sir Azzerhoden Razeri, Chamberlain of His Majesty's Ducal Court, on behalf of His Majesty, Manus Dei, King of Hyperion, Duke of Wessex, Count of Elba, Grandmaster of the Solar Legion, offer greetings.

The Duchy of Wessex, a multi-game community and founding member of the Hyperion Alliance, provides our members with an online gaming experience completely immersive and wholly unique. We draw our strength from a communal vision to create a guild structure that functions as a historical feudal government within the games we play. This structure not only imparts a technical and organizational efficiency that gives us an advantage in the competitive aspect of the games we engage in, but also to support something wholly contiguous with and supportive of the world we project ourselves into.

When you join the Duchy of Wessex it will be akin to stepping into an epic medieval movie. With the fully developed institutions of a government in place, our members are able to explore and pursue careers in various avenues of medieval kingdom life, and when war happens, it will feel like a true conflict between nations.

If you have any questions or would like to learn more then please follow the link to our forum. We look forward to hearing from you.

Guide to The Duchy Of Wessex
Guild Age Requirement: 16 Years
Originating: Asheron's Call in '99
Our Style: "Practical" Roleplay. Which is literally the choosing of a role or position that contributes to the in-game success of the Duchy, and strives for a drama free environment. "Theater" is secondary, optional, and never at the expense of another player. We will happily engage in a fight, but such fighting is part of our role-playing society, not for ‘griefing’ other players.

History: The Duchy of Wessex, as a very important part of the Kingdom of Hyperion, experienced phenomenal success in the original Darkfall, when that conglomerate of gaming clans united by a singular governmental structure took a record 28 clans stones on Agon, a record for holdings that has never been beaten. Since then we have continued to participated in many other games, though in smaller numbers.

Overall, Wessex is an exercise in civilization. Contrary to appearances, Wessex is not a fantasy role-play clan. Wessex is about playing strategy wargames to the fullest by fleshing out a fully functioning feudal society and feudal government with multiple departments. It is about making strategy/mmo hybrid games like Life is Feudal, which only come around every so often, into the best experience possible by making the world that much more real. The goal is not "roleplay", but competition: success in the game with every clan member participating in that - a well oiled machine contributing to not only victory, but the most memorable experience of immersion possible.

What we intend to do is provide our members with an online gaming experience completely immersive and wholly unique. Rather than just being a part of a gaming "team" with an incidental mascot for a sport played on a medieval-themed 3D battlefield, we hope to make being part of the Duchy of Wessex a little more like stepping into an epic war movie. With the fully developed institutions of the duchy government in place, our members will be able to explore and pursue careers in various avenues of medieval kingdom life, and when war happens, it will feel like a war between societies, not just a gangland turf war.

One special focus of this guild will be on accurate and detailed administration, so we would really like to appeal to and attract members who are capable of filling out some of these roles. That means we are looking for the absolute best diplomats, heralds, ministers, information brokers, traders, and soldiers.

Our duchy's structure consists of the duke and his council, but opportunities abound for advancement. Initiate members start life as a serf, and after a month of active membership, are promoted to villeins where they can remain for as long as they wish. However, even though villeins must fight and contribute to the duchy's coffers like everyone else. As this guild's focus will be on obtaining the absolute best and most proficient players, we offer training and opportunity to those who would advance beyond the rank of villein to become fully engaged yeoman with specialized responsibilities within the ducal government. Display valor and resourcefulness on the field of battle or within your assigned duties and it's possible to be granted heraldic arms, a knighthood, and even a fief of territory within the duchy.

The success of a clan will be determined by its efficiency in warfare, and feudalism is the government structure that was meant for WAR! Our core military structure emphasizes discipline and team strength, with regular drilling of members to ensure efficient, precise and deadly combat tactics. Many of our members have been fighting other players across sandbox and themepark MMOs: Darkfall (1&2), Eve Online, Mortal Online, Planetside (1&2), Dark Age of Camelot, and more.

Greetings,

I was quite bowled over by your impressive guild-description, as well as the immaculate website! Please count me among your august company if you find yourself in need of loyal and industrious recruits.

May I ask whether Wessex will be hosting its own YO server, or are there arrangements in place to ensure that the guild can move en masse into a server hosted from elsewhere?

Hello. I'm trying to complete the registration form but everytime I submit it, it says that the answer to the random question is incorrect. I've put just Duchy there and the full name. Is there something i'm missing? Thanks.

In a fight or troubles in the game?

I don't expect THAT many bugs in the game, and I at least will be active in the YO and MMO version.

As for in a fight: I usually die too early to figure out if we are winning or should just run

Still playing Darkfall 1 Willy? Of course not - they shut down that server because of a lack of players and tried to relaunch as Darkfall 2. Did you play Darkfall 2 Willy? No? I did, and even though I did it ultimately sucked just as bad as Darkfall 1. That's why they keep offering free weekends trying to get folks to log back and try the stuff they promised a year and a half ago.

Tell me though Wily, are you still playing Mortal? I imagine not, since you're on these forums. Guess you thought the same about Mortal as the majority of Wessex players did. Make that the majority of the sandbox MMO game playing crowd, since Life Is Feudal - Your Own sold 65,000 copies of a PRE-ALPHA game. I imagine Star Vault and Adventurine as busy trying to figure out how they can generate that much excitement for their games again.

It seems like I'm having the same problem as one maybe more. I can't get the application to go through on your site with the random question. I've tried all the possibilities I could think of.

Anyways you could pm me an application as well? Thanks

Absolutely. I have done so.

I have also attempted to recreate the issue with the app form, but have not been able to do so. Once you get on the forums l'll ask you for some additional browser info to see if I can pinpoint the problem.

Thank you for taking the time to let me know! :)

With the release of the last three patches, the Duchy Of Wessex server is becoming more active, even seeing the return of several long time members who finally see a sandbox MMO worth playing.

As Sir Kaylem (Jade) has posted, if you have ever been interested in playing in a true, feudal society, look us up at http://www.duchyofwessex.org.
