Joining ISR and FTC
We have a few Rules:
1. No Drama, be considerate to Guildmates, Citizens, and usually to others.
2. If drama or misbehavior, see rule #1.
3. There's a protocol for placing structures. You can see a current city view below.
Make friends with someone in the guild if you don't already know an ISR member or FTC citizen. Complete the
form which will be forwarded for consideration. It helps when a guild member provides endorsement.
Generally, you'll be given the guild tag and granted status on our website.
A probationary period of up to 30 days begins. During that time you must become known to at least two members
of the guild who endorse you to our Council for promotion. If you haven't been endorsed by the end of 30 days
you'll be deemed to be disinterested and removed without bias. You could also be removed earlier if there is a
reason given to the Council that is deemed adequate.
The guild Council has oversight of this process and is available to you if you have any problems.
Being permitted to place a structure within either of our cities is allowed only after you complete probation. Exceptions are made for friends.
Requests for a player to join either of our cities without joining ISR may be submitted. Just complete
form, adding a comment in the Notes box with your request. It helps to have some history in SWGEMU.
That's it. Fill out an application and hold on for some fun and adventure.
Note: Applications are sent to the ISR Council. You'll be contacted either by email or in-game.
About Federated Trading Company
Three groups: FTC Headquarters City, Imperial Sector Rangers, and Federated Trading Company make up our community. We co-exist under
the same adminstration. Our guild leaders, mayors and council work together to bring a stable and fun experience to our members.
The Federated Trading Company has been one of the oldest groups in SWG, having started as a players association, then a city,
about a year after the original start of the Chilastra galaxy. Today our group has evolved to maintain the city and to proudly merge our players
association activity with Imperial Sector Rangers. As such, the city maintains its original status and purpose, to provide a welcoming casual
environment to responsible players. Our focus is for both crafters or adventurers, though we maintain Research Center as the city's
Our position is faction-neutral both earlier and presently for the city. That is, we have no expection for either of the player factions;
it's up to each individual. Accordingly there are no plans to maintain faction bases.
Taxes are not an issue at the present. We fund the city through voluntary contributions to the treasury from citizen players. As a result there
are no taxes or fees imposed on our citizens, except for the garage. Accordingly we can welcome even a brand new player whose cash flow is
undeveloped, or the occasional player whose income is unpredictable. This method will be continued as long as the city remains funded. Players
requesting special decorations by there residence may be asked to contribute regularly toward the maintenance expense of those decorations.
City courtesy is always appreciated. Besides not expecting citizens to exhibit malicious behavior towards other citizens, we ask that citizens
who are leaving the game have the courtesy to remove their structures and vendors, if any. Of course this request is not enforcable, but we hope to
earn enough good will among citizens that those leaving will honor the request as a gesture of good will.
Imperial Sector Rangers members make up the majority of our citizens. ISR is a players association of fine (and fun) individuals
focused on the Ranger character and related activities. Though the great majority of our citizens are members, membership is not always required to
join the city.
Originally ISR became so large that we capped the allowed number of members. We created ISR-C with the plan to balance the two guilds: Rangers and
combat being in ISR and crafters being in ISR-C. A recent resurgance of interest in the original FTC guild (primarily crafters) suggested that we
re-name ISR-C to FTC.
The wsbsite is set as a tool for us to consolidate shared information, and to host a method for non-real-time communications. Citizens may easily
register for either or both guilds, and for citizenship alone or plus guild memberships. From time to time there may also be "Associates" registered.
They are special friends who are not always associated with our groups but may be invited to participate for other reasons. There won't be many
