Guild Charter musings

Hmm. Hadn't considered things like that, CB. Maybe just the guild cloak is good enough for what we wear. The likely color scheme would be black with some green, just like the site here. That way everyone can do whatever they like, no problems.
Ya, thats what I am thinking as well. Most likely my Gobbos will have armor dyed almost totally black (if possible) with yellow/black checks and dags since I like Night Gobbos so much - so the black thing does not bother me really. But we don't know how the dye system will fully play out yet. I know the mechanics of how the dye system works, but not the prices or availability of colors. Currently the color palette is very limited and some of those colors are VERY expensive. In games with purchaseable color-dyes black is often one of the more expensive colors because the dye system is used to pull money out of the game economy and prevent rampant inflation (which does happen and seriously messes things up - go check out Lineage2 or Final Fantasy XI). Mythic may decide to do this with thier dye system and so some colors might be prohibitively expensive at the beginning (but better once you are higher level with more disposable income).
To my knowledge, displaying your guild heraldry on your cloak is free. Setting up the guild heraldry will cost the guild 15g initially and also requires a certain guild-level. From there your heraldry is locked in stone. Once we pick heraldry for our guild and standard it is permanent - meaning we cannot change it. So the heraldry that we choose is going to be a big deal. On the bright side, there is a WHOLE LOT that you can do with the heraldry. I have messed with the system a bit and built heraldry for a couple of guilds I ran in various beta stages. There is a staggeringly large amount of greenskin themes and stuff we can do with it - including 40k glyph borders (clan glyphs!).
However, if the dyes turn out to be fairly cheap then I have a few ideas on fun things we can do with the guild. I would like to have regular contests on both the site and possibly in-game (depending on what systems the final game has - such as tome inspection or duelling) with short-term fun rewards like letting the weekly champion choose the color-scheme for people's helmets for his tour of duty - or other silly crap like that.

You guys in the beta will probably already know this stuff, but I tought I'd put it here for those who aren't in the beta (like me! )
Hopefully I don't get told off for threadmancy!
Guild screen and some info
Edit: Oh yea, the guild part is only half of the vid, the dude then goes on about a weedy character.
