IV.  InGame Letter - EQ2 Example.

In-Game Letter  ((Note: You can highlight this letter and copy or control-c, then in game (with a bard mail open to the new recruit) hit control-v and it ought to magically appear. Be sure to sign your name!)):


Subject:  Welcome to Saga!

You are now an initiate in Saga, welcome to the guild!

OOC stuff

You will find our message forums at http://sagafamily.org

What happens now?

You will spend about 2 weeks at the rank of initiate. During this time you may use the guild manager and guild chat to meet and socialize with other members and see if we are a good fit for you. However, you will not have a visible guild tag or bank access until you become a full member. 

You are also encouraged to visit our forums at the address above. Please read the guild charter and rules/policies and browse to your heart's content. I will place a welcome post for you in our Saga public forum that will have more information that you will find helpful. 

If you have any questions, please speak to any of the officers or recruiters (there is a pull-down selection in the Guild Manager that lists all recruiters, including officers who are recruiters) or post your question on the forums. After your intial post, you will be granted access to the private game-related forums.

Welcome, friend, and I hope you enjoy your time with us. Come, tell your story, and become part of the Saga. And most importantly, have fun!

Welcome!


V.  Welcome Thread - EQ2 Example.


Welcome to Saga guild!

Please be sure to read the posts stickied at the top of this forum and be sure you agree with the rules and charter. This guild has a history, as you will see. It is, well, a Saga. 

Saga is also part of a multi-game guild formed when a few wandered off to try other games. Sister guilds are forming, and we all come here to check on each other. This multi-game guild is currently called SagaFamily. We are indeed a family.

To become part of that, please take the time to fill out the attached roster card and post it to this message. This procedure is for the others here who will not see you in EQ2 so they can get to know you. You do not have to fill the roster card out to be part of Saga in-game. You can do it now or in the future. You can fill one out even if you do not wish to join the larger family. There is no pressure, and no rush. Take your time and look around.

Just a reminder: after your first post you will be granted access to the private game related forums, such as questing and tradeskills.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!

Welcome!
