Fellow Clansmen and honored enemies, I bring you all greetings. I am Galaxy Commander Jep Jorgensson, founder and leader of the 12th Bear Guards and I have come before you now to introduce ourselves to everyone.
We are a unit of loyal Clanners that enjoys Role-Playing and are completely dedicated to the revival of Clan Ghost Bear. We give priority to Faction Warfare (FW) whenever possible in order to defend and expand the borders of the Clans. Our stated mission is to strengthen the unit so we can conquer the Inner Sphere!
Honor, loyalty, courage.
Q. What are the experience requirements to join?
A. None. We all started out greener than a Jade Falcon and have no problems training new cadets.
Q. But what if I do not own any Clan mechs and so cannot finght in CW?
A. Not a problem. We have other roles you can fill to help the unit. Besides, you can still bring whatever kind of mech to pub battles.
Q. But I do not know anything about Clan lore. Is that alright?
A. Aff. You can learn. We have a list of the more common Clan terms and are willing to teach.
Q. What kind of perks would I get if I joined? Do you give out free mechs to new recruits?
A. Neg! We are not that crazy! As for the perks, you would have:
Access to our website and forum;
Access to ALL of the original Battletech novels, about the first half of the ones from the Dark Ages, and animated series for free;
And a friendly and helpful environment with a real Clan feeling to it.
Q. You said something about having a Clan feeling to it. What did you mean by that?
A. We speak Clan, we use Clan ranks, we hold Trials of Position to promote our warriors, weekly Clawing Rituals, and Trials of Bloodright to earn our Bloodnames. We are loyal Clansmen to the end.
Q. Where are you based?
A. Most of our members are in North America but we also have members in Europe and around the Pacific as well. So obviously English is our primary language.
Q. What if for whatever reason I do not fit in. What then?
A. If you do not wish to stay then you can say your goodbyes and leave (just please do not leave without saying anything, that would be rude). We do not want you to stay if it is going to make you unhappy. That would defeat the very purpose of any game.
Q. How do I join?
A. Very simple.
1. You need to apply on our websiteat: http://12bg.enjin.com/home by filling out an application (remember to use your in-game name!).
2. You can leave a post here asking to join and someone will get back to you. This also helps since it shows that you are diligent and serious.
3. You need to then drop into our teamspeak channel at: STRANAMECHTY.INFO (PW: StranaMechty) and ask someone in our channel about joining us for some drops so we can get to know each other.
4. You may be asked to pay at least part of recruitment cost after joining (less than 2 million C-Bills right now).
Our unit tag is 12BG.
This is who we are. If you wish to join us, then so be it. We and the Clan will be all the stronger with another competent Mechwarrior at our side. If not, then we wish you well in your search and may Kerensky smile upon you.
