Are you over 18? (You must be 18+ to apply.)
Yes

What are some games you plan on playing with us?
Neverwinter

What is the character or account name you’re joining that game with?
Erlyn1984#2516

Do you have friends or family in the Unrepentant community? If so what is their forum name?
No, but I am open to being adopted (am housetrained)

So... let's talk! What follows are a bunch of questions that give us a sense of your personality, and give us something to talk about. If your answers are boring or short, we’ll assume you’re boring (and probably short).

Tell us the story of one of the dumbest, funniest or most embarrassing things you've done as an adult.
My star moment was when I was driving around in the dark, on the backroads in the French part of Belgium, trying to get to my hotel. My satnav kept telling me to make a turn in a spot near a farm that looked very much unlike the average road, even in the pitch blackness. I was skeptical, I still believe myself to be more intelligent than my satnav (at that time), so I drove on, but it kept wearing me down telling me to go back... So I finally gave in and listened, turned where it said. I went down a slight hill and by the time I could get my car to a standstill the motion sensor on the house clocked me and lit up the freshly turned soil in a residential garden. I felt like a complete idiot... Thankfully I had not been the first, nor will I have been the last but boy was that painful.

What's the coolest job you've ever had? What's the worst? (And why?)
Coolest is my current one, I am a qualified Bull Wrestler, aka Executive Assistant. I deal with a raging animal on a daily basis. Never a dull moment and the animals are quite sweet once you understand their ways.
Worst was telemarketing, I learned quickly that in order to be successful at it you have to sell your soul to the devil. I already sold mine for tree fiddy, so I struck out in this line of profession...

Name three video games you'll replay no matter how old they get. (And why?)
Witcher 3, Skyrim and Dragon Age Inquisition

Tell us about the most annoying person you've ever met, and why he/she annoyed you.
People who make an effort to find the negative in everything and everyone. They tire me out very quickly.

Tell us something cool about yourself that has nothing to do with gaming. (Free hint: responding to your application thread with photo or video supporting evidence is a plus!)
I can wield a longsword without killing myself with it. They even let me win a few matches in a competition. Here is my most intelligible expression during a training session in Vienna (because why do that at home when you can travel a few hundred kilometres to do it there): https://www.facebook.com/themafencing/photos/pob.565864134/1372505216188047/?type=3&theater

Why choose the Unrepentant Gaming Community over just a regular gaming guild?
It was the recruitment message that made me laugh, I have spent many a night drinking and gaming. I wasn't sold on the pantsless part, because that gets cold quickly, but I thought why be a buzzkill and make a point of that. The application process only encouraged me further, because I like the fact of being vetted to see if I fit in. I hope I do, because I really miss having a great bunch of people to game and laugh with. Also like the casual part of the guild, even though I am serious about my gaming.

BONUS: Ask us some questions! We're sure you've got some.
Yes, so when is the next pantsless drinking and gaming night? Because I need to clear my schedule :p

Almost done!

You enter a cave before starting an adventure. A wise old man tells you "It's dangerous to go alone. Take this." What does he hand you and why?
A very detailed map to the bar, that prevents you from ending up in a random field. Obviously.

Welcome to the app process. Pantsless gaming is every night, and I've yet to see one without drinking. Rocketleague on Friday night is particularly hot, if you're not otherwise engaged.

Speaking of Rocket League, are there any casual group games you play with others?

Thanks :) And that sounds great! I really miss having a good laugh while playing online games. I have done that extensively in the past like Age of Conan, LOTRO and the really old Neverwinter with the home made mods (I loved that to pieces). After having done the grown up stuff I find myself longing for the great times I had with a guild, the raids, the banter, the shared pain of grinding and crafting, so I am making more time for gaming again these days. Right now I am mostly playing Neverwinter and Vainglory (as simple in between entertainment). I have mostly been doing that solo, as the games I normally play with friends are tabletop/boardgames. I am looking for a good bunch of people and am willing to branch out into any game, as long as there is good fun to be had :)

Pretty big and heavy games there. Do you still split your time between multiple MMO games at the moment? I think Conan is an MMO... Any non-MMO games you play?

Welcome to the app process,

If you want to join the Neverwinter guild while your app is pending, you can join our custom in game chat channel, introduce yourself as an applicant, and request a guild invite. You join the channel by typing /channel_join uey in the chat box.

Also we have both Discord and Mumble for voice comms. At the moment, I think more people tend to hang out and party in mumble, while discord is more of an in-game comms for some branches. I think the Neverwinter branch still uses Discord, primarily. If you want log in info for those, we can get them to you.

So you actually wail on people with longswords, recreationally? How do I sign up to do that?

Good to hear :) I think after a month of waiting around (coupled with the fact you seem a good sort of course) you deserve a yes vote to get the ball rolling good luck with the rest and if you see me around say hi

UNI... bahhhh

We got Erlyn in the guild yesterday, had a nice chat. Still waiting for discord role to be assigned to have a chance to talk her :)
I Like the avatar, here at Uey unicorns have special place, but this one looks like me, after 10 hour party :cool:
So Erlyn, how did you find us? And also, what do you think about the game, as a returning player after couple of year?

Got some great interaction with Erlyn yesterday on Chat. I like the attitude she has about putting the work to gain experience as opposed to relying to get carried. I like the true tank spirit! Hopefully we can get out and get some practice runs soon.

Awwwhhh really feeling the lurv here guys! :in love: I had a really warm welcome from Red and got spoiled rotten. I feel a bit bashful about that, but it's really appreciated and will make sure to repay or pay it forward. Love the spirit of the group so far and really look forward to contributing more to the guild. As for how I'm liking NW after not playing for about two years, I must admit I am really addicted. To both crafting and working my way through all the campaigns. Love the class as well, never ripped through mobs faster with a tank spec. It's crazy! All in all, I am a happy little camper. Thanks for letting me join :)

Erlyn came on Discord. I enjoyed the conversation, but was expecting the conversation to culminate in the fact that the Skywalkers are way too emotional to be anything but Siths.
