STATE OF THE UNION
For those who may have missed it last edition; here is the Lord Hand's State of the Union speech.
MY STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS...The first edition:
Well it’s been a year for OG. It’s been a blast and I want to thank everyone for making it so, because I doubt I would still play the game as much, if it were not for the members here. As our one year anniversary month came to a close, I want to thank everyone that had participated in our events and made that month one to remember. Big thanks to funnylady for running all these events and for her time gathering prizes for all who participated.
During this year we have seen new members come and old members go, as it goes for any guild. We have to continue to welcome new active members to keep this guild strong for another year, as they are the life blood of keeping guilds fresh. With that being said, I do sense a bit of a overall lull in the guild. As you may or may not know, we created a system for new members to gain bank access (intro post on website and active on discord and/or in game voice chat). This was to protect the bank from being robbed blind like it has been in the past. But the bank and the website has been a bit dead lately. We want to have this process to be easy to be promoted to gain bank access for active new members. Maybe it’s time to rethink this process and for ways to bring more activity to the website, the guild bank, and voice chat. I'm calling on everyone and anyone with any ideas! Please don’t post them in general chat but PM me with ANY honest feedback or ideas and the EC will listen to all opinions. I know events seem to bring more members together so we will work on having more events moving forward. The state of our union will be strong again with the help of everyone.
And last but not least, a big thanks to the man upstairs, Randall Frost, as not for him making this guild, none of us would be here. And not to forget bllydnsr and Maddawg_Sic_Em for paving the way for me! Thanks again and happy hunting!
MrPunisher7, Lord Hand

MISC GUILD NEWS
OPEN ENROLLMENT: Currently, everyone has the permission to invite players to the guild. A purge is in the process to remove non active players from the guild. Feel free to invite friends, family, anyone cool looking for a guild to call home.
UPDATE 11: So far, so good. It looks like the patch they added is holding. I figure about 90% of the issues have been somewhat fixed.
LANGUAGE: Language has been brought up to the EC recently. Please refer to the chat guidlines below. While this is a mature game with mature players; I understand the language used and use it myself. However, we need to remember that we are not alone in chat. While many won't mind the talk, others might. Please, be courteous to others.
PURGE: We are in the process of removing members who have not played the game in quite a few months. Do not be alarmed by the mass removal; it is time to make room for those who are more active. If you have been active since the drop of the Dark Botherhood dlc, you are safe. Please make sure to show yourself as "active" in the roster so I can track your activity.[Edit Text]

Ranger STL is off this week working hard on his next installment of Elder Scrolls Lore.
GUILD CHAT GUIDELINE
We will NOT tolerate any malicious and degrading conduct from our guild members toward any gender, culture, belief system, lifestyle, etc.. Please be informed of our rules and check out the Voice Chat Guidelines under the Guild Guidelines in the NEW PLAYERS website forum.
Guild Chat includes both in-game voice chat and on discord.
As a member of this guild, remember that you have the right to speak up and remind someone that they might be in breach of Guild rules. As always, if there’s something/someone that’s bothering you, please let one of the ambassadors (or Elder Council) know before it escalates and thank you!
I am looking for EP warriors to take the fight into Cyrodiil. Therefore, I have formed the OG Militia to just that. The militia is part of the OG, no joining another guild. The purpose is to have a stronger OG presence in PvP; helping out fellow EP warriors in the fight to win the current campaign and have fun doing it. The only requirement is when you’re representing the OG militia, you wear the OG tabard. Currently the Cyrodiil campaigns the militia are involved in are; Blackwater (under Lv 50) and Scourge. If you have an EP toon and are interested in some fun PvP combat or have any questions; message Randall Frost on the website or Discord.
This OG Newsletter is published every 2nd & 4th Saturdays of the month. If anyone has anything they wish to publish in the newsletter, please PM the copy to Randall Frost; either here or on Discord. [Edit Text]
