Old Republic Dads is a SWTOR guild specifically tailored to the working adult and/or parent who cannot afford to spend countless hours on an MMO when life's priorities demand our attention. We are a coalition of dads, moms, and professionals. Our guild offers an adult community that specializes in casual play and who want to enjoy Star Wars: The Old Republic without the pressures and time demands that other guilds sometimes inadvertently place on their members.
We understand life has its challenges; family, careers, military, education, etc. All these things must take precedence over MMOs and gaming in general, although we manage to find some way to squeeze it in. As such, no members will be kicked or removed from the guild due to prolonged absence and the game ruining experience of finding a new guild and getting acquainted with new guildies can be avoided forever!
We are a part of the MOG Nation gaming community which is committed to the following concepts:
- Players with a mutual respect for each other
- Having an open mind to the schedules of working professionals and parents
- Encompassing a wide range of play styles from Hardcore to Casual
- Players interested in ALL aspects of MMO game play from PvP to PvE to Crafting and Exploration
- Players not afraid to branch out and try many different games
- Community members that want to engage in productive discussions about the gaming industry
In short our guild offers the casual, laid back, & good natured enjoyment of Star Wars: The Old Republic with like-minded adults. If you have yet to find a guild that feels like it is a good fit for both your personal and virtual life, please consider becoming an Old Republic Dad!
Guild Structure and Leadership:
Old Republic Dads is run by the ORD Council, with the current Guildmaster at the head. The current GM is Nepthen, who has been a member of ORD since Beta and who has served as the the GM since January 2013. The rest of the Council is made up of Alexius, Cennedi, Dibbey, Graysonn, Khornell, Ordinonn, Trevaan, Vardin, and Zapranoth, all veteran members of ORD.
Old Republic Dads is heavily involved in raiding. Currently, we have 11 active Republic groups and 3 active Imperial group. Operation teams are individually run by their respective Ops Lead and the ORD Council does not interfere with the individual teams, unless extreme measures are needed. Our raiding groups all have their own unique personality, focus, and schedule, ranging from casually tackling Story Mode and Hard Mode content all the way to hardcore progression into NiM content and beyond.
Old Republic Dads is not a hardcore PvP guild. That being said, there are members who do enjoy PvP a lot and there can always be groups forming for some PvP carnage.
Old Republic Dads were heavily involved in Conquests. We have taken every Republic planet we have invaded and even have a ship for our Imperial guild, Old Imperial Dads, so that our Imperial alts can get involved in conquering planets as well. Our strength lies on the Republic side, though. We tied with two other guilds for World First Galactic Conqueror. Currently, our focus isn't on conquests but given enough planning, we can still take planets.
