The Acolytes are not your average run-of-the-mill guild. We consider ourselves to be a Gaming Community of like-minded individuals who spend their free time playing video games. We have spent copious amounts of time building a strong leadership core which has led to much success in gaining a solid membership base. Throughout the glorious history of the Acolytes we have experienced many server firsts, and even quite a few of the world firsts! We have active Guild Leaders, active Officers and even more important...an active player base. This solid backing of active leaders, active Officers, active players has led to our success as a Community and will be the foundation to our continued success.
The Acolytes were formed on April 11th, 2005 by Hieru. He woke up one morning wanting to create a multi facet guild, and set out to do so. After tens of minutes of thought he came up with the name “Acolytes”. He began to advertise for members of this new guild for the upcoming MMO, Age of Conan. On April 12th, 2005 after using public forums to advertise his new guild, the first member, Skullscrusher, joined the Acolytes. To this day, Skullcrusher still faithfully serves under the Acolyte tag. After months of release date setbacks for Age of Conan, the guild had grown to quite a few players waiting to join the game. On May 17th of 2008, after the long awaited launch of Age of Conan, we became the Cimmeria RP-PvP’s server first guild at 10:16 a.m. server time. On January 4th, 2008 the Acolytes became a multi-game community by opening up a Warhammer Online Division. This new division started with just 3 members (Cach, Rache, Dredger) and quickly swelled to 105 members before the October launch of Warhammer. Not only did the Acolytes quickly establish themselves as the dominant force on Cimmeria in Age of Conan, but the Acolytes of WAR quickly took over the #1 Spot on the Phoenix Throne server in Warhammer. From that day forward Acolytes would continue to be successful while having fun along the way.
We have members in every corner of the globe; from the Pacific coast of the US, to the United Kingdom, to Turkey and all the way over to Australia and New Zealand. We are a diverse group of individuals that come from varied backgrounds, cultures and jobs. We claim many armed service men and women, a web designer, a graphic artist, a Secret Service agent, stay-at-home mom’s and dad’s, factory workers, auto workers, a disc jockey, supervisors, plant managers, salesmen, drug counselors, underwriters, stock brokers, students and the unemployed. Each one of them brings to us a different perspective, a different feel and a different reason as to what makes them a gamer. Grab a beer and make yourself at home!
