Our community embarks on another chapter in our long history. Acolytes will be an active part of the upcoming, highly anticipated, Black Desert Online. The game is slated to launch in either February or March of 2016.

With launch only a few months away we have already started building our core infrastructure of the guild. Rhavon will be the Chapter Leader in Black Desert Online. Read a bit about Rhavon's gaming history and his thoughts on the upcoming release of Black Desert Online. No matter if you have been an Acolyte for ten years or have recently joined, if you have the desire or feel you can contribute to the overall well being of the guild as an officer type in BDO then please contact Rhavon via PM here on our forums.

He is in the process of finding a few officers to help him run the Acolytes guild in various aspects. Together we shall achieve great things in...

We have always been about quality over quantity. We have always been leaders in the MMO gaming genre, not followers. We have always taken pride in being ahead of the "pack" when it comes to new technology that will make gaming and interacting easier for our wonderful community. Discord will consolidate many services we currently use into one! Discord is an all in one voice and text chat. It is free and there are no limits on the size of our server! It is accessible through a web browser, mobile app's for your phone and a desktop client.

This will eliminate the need for our Slack service as Discord does everything Slack does and way easier to invite people to it. This will eliminate the need for TeamSpeak3 as Discord does everything TeamSpeak3 does, including setting peoples volumes if they are to low or to high, security controls that allows us to create different groups to handle...

We are always trying to provide options for our members to enjoy end game content in the games you love with like minded people. Another chapter in the history books of the Acolytes continues in Everquest 2!

Everquest 2 recently started a Time Locked Expansion server this past July. The name of the server is Stormhold. That means the server starts with no expansion packs. The game is like it was when it originally launched. Every 30 days there is a poll that the players in the game vote on whether to advance to the next Expansion pack in the game.

The Chapter leader for the Acolytes in EverQuest 2 is Ucala. His main officer is Alistor. Together they have already created a phenomenal raiding guild. The entire group of people are awesome and we welcome them into the Acolyte community. If you have ever wanted to enjoy Everquest 2 from the beginning and wanted to experience each raid...

The next Chapter in Acolyte history has arrived! Camelot Unchained is the highly anticipated game that requires skill and effort, not an open wallet. It is created by the same person who brought you Dark Age of Camelot, Mark Jacobs. Our Camelot Unchained chapter will be lead by Icedern. He is a great and tenured player, but more importantly a great all around guy who has a passion for Dark Age of Camelot and now the Camelot Unchained world! We have the utmost confidence that Icedern, his team and our members will make a great name for the Acolytes in Camelot Unchained.

Although Camelot Unchained will not release for some time, we felt it was vital to start building our core and continue to expand on that core so we are fully prepared to hit launch like a tsunami. Keep an active eye on our Camelot...

According to their Facebook information, The MMOG Museum promotes the preservation of cultural heritage in virtual video game societies.

It appears they have chosen to preserve one of our accomplishments in their preservation of cultural heritage in virtual video game societies.

I think this recognition speaks volumes of where we have been and where we are going as a community. Acolytes always has been and always will be bigger then any one person. It is you, the members, that keep things great around here. Please go favorite and/or post something on that Twitter post they made to show our appreciation!

Greetings my fellow Acolytes! If you have been around our forums or Mumble lately you will see there is a ton of activity going on. With our already strong activity from our Rift and GW2 chapters you probably have noticed an increase of activity around Everquest Next and Elder Scrolls Online as well. There has been a lot going on within our community the past few months.

We were able to move over to a new hosting company for our website/forums to improve the speed and user experience thanks to Asiimar. We also purchased a new chat system named CometChat which has extended the reach of our community communication for all members of the community thanks to Theodosios. CometChat has only been active for a little over two weeks now and there has been a total of 3,157 messages sent with over 300 sent in the past 24 hours. It provides an avenue for all members to keep in touch...

Happy 2014 to everyone! It is going to be a great year for the Acolyte Gaming Community. In a thread a few weeks back I wanted to have a community wide contest that the entire community could take part in and at the same time give away some good prizes to our members. The goal of the contest is to showcase the awesome members we have here within our community and at the same time spreading the word of our wonderful Acolyte Gaming Community to friends, family and so on. Lets see what everyone comes up with!!

Details of the Contest

  • The objective is to take a picture of yourself, friends, family members, or pets in Acolyte branded gear/apparel and post the pictures here in this thread. The more creative, the higher the prize you will possibly win.
  • Another option for the contest is that you can take our Acolyte logo and take a picture of you...
It has been a little while since we have sent out an update to the entire community. I am hoping that everyone had a great summer and is ready to hunker down and enjoy some MMO's this winter and going into spring of next year. Our community is continuing to thrive as the years go on. We are currently still active in Rift and located on the Greybriar server. Callianna and team have been doing an awesome job with providing a competitive and fun atmosphere for our members. They are currently running a progression raid and a second raid for lower tiered zones. Rift has also been free for a while now, so if you were thinking of coming back to Rift or giving Rift a try you should do it. Our other thriving chapter is Guild Wars 2. Toxotria has recently become the chapter lead. Her and her group of officers have been doing a fine job as well keeping things fun and engaging in GuildWars 2. They are currently located on the Sanctum of Rall server, but are starting to recruit across multiple...
Acolytes, Guests and Corkus,

We’re only four months into 2013 and many things have happened in our Community. Some good, some bad and some that could be considered to be a little bit of both. We’ve gained 367 new, unique, non-spam users on the forums. The Guild Wars 2 Chapter is reporting upwards to 100 new members and are steadily nearing the guild cap. The RIFT Chapter is plugging away and remains one of the most viable guilds on the Wolfsbane shard. Sadly we’ve seen some familiar faces leave the Community as well, some on good terms and some on not-so-good terms. Either way, as always, we wish them the best in their future endeavors. We’ve also said goodbye to our old-standby friend Age of Conan Chapter and our Star Wars: the Old Republic Chapter.

In February our website began a major overhaul as we reconfigure the outlook and presentation of the Acolytes brand. This is being done in stages to rebrand the Acolytes as not just a conglomerate of Guilds, but as a true Gaming...
