The New Year is fast approaching, and Management has been hard at work to make sure the Velvet Pearl has a resolution of their own to make for 2018.! As such, we are happy to announce that with this post, there will be substantial changes made to both the forums and the structure of the Guild as a whole.
The Velvet Pearl has always been one of the main RP hotspots on The Progenitor (newly-merged Darth Malgus), but even with the activity and support everyone has shown us, we have noticed a recurring trend: as time went on, things have easily turned predictable in terms of the RP we provided.
The recent efforts were made specifically to combat that stagnation. With the various updates to systems new and old that will be released with this update, we are aiming to decentralize the current format of the Guild structure. This rework is designed to give everyone (be they a long time patron, a new visitor, or employee) more opportunities to expand both their own RP and the Guild's storyline as a whole.
Additionally, the Forums will be getting some love, too! For too long, they have been vastly underused, and this update aims to change that on a fundamental level. We encourage everyone to start checking them more regularly from now on, as updates will hopefully come at more regular intervals from now on!
On top of everything else, we have implemented a new 'Quick Access' tab. You can find it at our Enjin header near the top (it has replaced the old 'Menus' tab), or simply by clicking on the provided link. We encourage everyone to try it out, and if you are so inclined, leave us feedback on the Forums!
Through the Quick Access tab, you will find many useful links to various forum posts, including, but not limited to: guides, information venues, the old-turned-new menus, and rules.
That being said, we would ask EVERYONE to reacquaint themselves with the updated rules (LINK) and our implemented Security features (LINK). These two documents are ESSENTIAL to keep the Pearl safe and orderly. Guild members will be operating on the assumption that you have familiarized yourself with the rules. You can navigate to them via the Quick Access tab, or by simply clicking on the provided links.
We are immensely grateful to everyone who has been part of our journey, and we hope that you will continue to support us in the times to come!
2017. was a good year. Let's make 2018. an even better one!
