About Us

Who are the Acolytes?

Acolytes was formed on April 11th, 2005 by FatGoat for the MMO named Age of Conan. We are a Gaming Community of like minded individuals who enjoy spending their free time playing video games with others.

We have members in every corner of the globe. Each person brings their own unique personality to our community as we all share in the same common bond of playing video games together.


Acolyte Charter
Acolytes was founded with the basic principle of creating a strong, social gaming community. We offer many outlets for our members to enjoy their time together as a community. We could be grouping together doing a dungeon, pvp’ing, raiding or playing a drinking game in Discord. We offer a chance to join a Guild that won’t troll it’s members or self destruct over night. We are going on our 16th year as a community.


Mission Statement
Building an enjoyable, active, environment is Acolyte’s highest priority. This entails honing individual and group skills while promoting comradeship between members. We also offer the opportunity to be part of a larger gaming community that works and plays together beyond a single game. Each Acolytes Chapter will have their own unique goals and objectives.


Why Us?
Even though we have a long storied past, we always want to maintain the mindset of, What Have We Done Lately? We provide longevity for our guilds in the games we take part in. We are always goal driven and we have a fun time along the way!

Acolytes Member Policy

Our goal is to foster and grow an active social community of gamers. We are not looking to have thousands of members where no one knows anyone else. Our vision is to grow an active community over time, where you get to know those who play the same game.

Acolytes that played one game may play in the future with Acolytes they may have not had much contact with, but will have the comfort knowing that we are all Acolytes, and are all in pursuit of the same common goal.

#1 To join the Acolytes Gaming community, you must fill out an application in Discord. The goal is to allow the new applicant time to see if we are what they want in a guild, and to see if they are a good fit for our community. The applicant will have a fourteen day trial period. Different chapters may alter the details of process to meet their specifications. Whichever process is used, the end goal is to determine if the new applicant fits in with our community. The applicant will be accepted or denied after fourteen days.

#2 When you play a game that the Acolytes have a guild in, you will be given access to that chapter’s Members Only voice and text chat channels. Chapter leadership is responsible for keeping their roster and Discord tags up to date. If someone leaves that chapter, they will be removed from those Members Only channels. Members have the freedom to add and remove their own game related tags in Discord for games they are interested in the #roles_selection Discord channel.

#3 If you are playing a game that the Acolytes have an active chapter guild in, we ask you to join our guilds to help strengthen our overall community togetherness.

Acolytes Guidelines

Acolytes have very few guidelines, but we adhere to them to keep order.

#1 Stay Active

#2 Have fun. It’s important to the Leaders that you are having fun. If at any time you stop having fun or it becomes a chore to login, then by all means take a step back from the keyboard and enjoy life!

#3 Respect your community members.

#4 No discriminatory slurs, comments or epitaphs

#5 Never neglect your family or friends in real life. Make sure to give them the love and attention they need and make sure your spouse or significant other is always satisfied mentally, emotionally and sexually.

#6 No religious debates or discussion about religion

#7 No political arguments or discussion about anything political.

#8 Real life comes first.

#9 Be mindful that you represent the Acolyte Gaming community with your actions in game and on forum


We value our members that have been part of our community for years. Making a positive impact and influence in our Acolyte community. Not only have you been an Acolyte for a long time, stayed true and loyal to our active chapters, but you have also kept in contact with all of us through our various avenues of communication. We wanted to make the Acolyte Legend tag not something very easily attainable. It should have meaning and purpose to those that do obtain it.

Having the Acolyte Legend tag means you have met the following criteria:

  • 5 years minimum as an Acolyte
  • Does not leave guild, transfer servers, join a rival guild in a game where Acolytes have an active running chapter
  • No more than a 1 year hiatus where there was no communication either via forums, Discord, in a game or on our community Facebook page.
