Welcome to the XIIIth Legion!

You can find us on the web at XIIIthLegion.enjin.com.

We are a Republic faction guild on the "Ebon Hawk" server with a sister Empire faction guild open only to members of the Thirteenth. The mission of this guild is to share good roleplaying experiences and help members in conquering PVE instances while maintaining an out-of-game atmosphere of friendship and civility. The Thirteenth Legion is based in Atlanta among professional, enlightened, post college-age RPG fans, and has members from around the world.

All prospective members will be made recruits first. This gives us a chance to get to know the applicant and the applicant a chance to get to know us to make sure that it is a good fit. The length of this trial period will be determined primarily by the amount of interaction guild members are able to have with the applicant, but applications will be reviewed weekly. The associate period may be waived or reduced for applicants who are already well known by guild members (i.e. people who have grouped with us frequently, family and close friends of existing members). We will also accept "associate members" who have access to most of our forums and events. Associate members may be members of other guilds here as ambassadors, people in-line for membership, or those who simply want to play with us from time to time without the responsibilities of guild membership.

RP Backstory
The XIIIth was a unit of Republic troopers that were tasked with fighting a suicidal holding mission to delay the Sith and their Mandalorian mercenaries long enough for the Senate to flee the sack of Coruscant. We were successful, but most of our troopers and all of the senior officers were killed in action. Some were MIA after the sack of Coruscant and were presumed to have joined or been captured by the Empire. The XIIIth Legion is being rebuilt. We've taken troopers from plenty of other units that could spare them. We've taken in Jedi that are dissatisfied with the Jedi Council's noninvolvement stance. We've taken in a lot of "independent shipping captains" and "consultants" and "extrajudicial procurement specialists" who know the back lanes of all the spaceways.

Now we are taking it to the Empire, and the bucketheads, for revenge...

Our Empire guild is made up of those lost friends and allies from the sack of Coruscant along with others who have a reason to hold a grudge against the XIIIth and its members. Some blame the XIIIth for their capture. Some may have been working for the Empire all along. Some may be infiltrators, betraying the Empire from within.

Who are we?
We are a casual guild, which means we're expecting about 10 hours of play or less a week from most members. If you want to play 40 hours a week, then that's fine. We're big enough and global enough to have a few folks on nearly all the time. We welcome hardcore players even though the guild is mostly focused on casual players.

We are a mature guild, which meanst that most of the Legionnaires are 30 or older. We would prefer if people younger than college-age did not join the guild. We don't want to babysit, and we don't want to feel uncomfortable about having to edit ourselves among younger players. We want to play with people our own age--and you should, too.

We are a professional guild, which means that most of the Legionnaires have a full-time job and run their own household. Our members include surgery technicians, doctors, attorneys, software engineers/developers, scientists-teachers-professors, full time college students, military personnel, realtors and businessmen. This is a diverse and brainy group of folks. We have a good sense of perspective. The real world is more important than this game. We have the patience and wisdom and experience in how to get along in a group like adults because we are adults.

We are a RP-PvE guild, which means that we expect to do some RP via in-game experiences, chat and posted fiction. You don't have to participate in RP, but you have to at least appreciate RP. We will participate in PvP and endgame content as secondary goals that Legionnaires are welcome to participate in if they choose to do so.

We are a friendly guild, which means that we are interested in mentoring new players, acting responsibly online, and creating a fun and supportive environment to play in. We support good sportsmanship and appropriate behavior. Griefing, bullying, racism, sexism, homophobia, cheating, stealing and the use of hax or gliding programs are not tolerated.

We are a fun guild, which means we like to play! Our hobbies are as diverse and meaningful as our jobs. From basketball to Dungeons and Dragons to nerf-gun fights, we like to have fun. We like to tell jokes and pass around Monty Python memes! We are all playing The Old Republic because we love Star Wars and think the game is going to be fun.

We are not here for pwning n00bs, high-end raiding, PvP, powerleveling, or gear. If you're looking for these kind of experiences, you're in the wrong place.

We Only Have Three Rules
Rule #1: Be nice. Follow the Code of Conduct and Guide to Etiquette and Looting.

Rule #2: Be here. You should spend more game-time playing a XIIIth Legion character than not playing one. We want to be your main guild.

Rule #3: Be active. Log into and lurk on the forum at least monthly and play at least monthly. If you are going to be gone longer than that, let us know.

Just wanted to bump this up. I've been a member and officer of this guild for over a year now and I can say that if you are looking for a relaxed laid back environment to make some friends and have some fun playing SWTOR then this is the guild for you.

Even though we are not a progressing raiding guild we do a number of Endgame Ops as well as PvP, HM flashpoints, datacron crawls, world bosses, and many other events. We have a large mumble server that people can hang out in (or not if you don't want to).

We are and RP guild but it is not a requirement for members to participate. We have at least monthly RP events and usually weekly as well as a number of folks that write their own stuff on our site.

Please come on by and see what we are about! You can find the link to our site in the post above or in my sig.

This past month we ran Operations of EC Nightmare Mode, EC Hard Mode, TFB Storymode, S&V story mode, EV Story mode, EV 16 man Nightmare Mode, and KP 16 man Nightmare Mode. We also defeated a large number of world bosses on planets from Courscant to Hoth as well as Toborro's Courtyard.

For RP activities we had weekly events as well as our monthly Guild meeting. RP activities included Thirteenth Legion members fielding a large operation to rescue Master Emin-joh from Outlaw's Den on Tatooine.

While we are not a huge guild we do have enough members that we got the full guild XP and Reputation bonuses within a couple days of 2.2 going live.

Come check us out! We would love to have you play SWTOR with us.

Just wanted to bring this back up to front. This Guild is fantastic. So many mature and fun players within. Great RP and groups to complete HM and Ops with.

If you are looking for a laid back and friendly Guild this is the place to go. If you want some RP we got that. You want some HM FPs done with a group? We have that too. Not sure if you are sure on what to gear yourself with? We have the subject matter experts to help you get an idea of what to suit up in. New to the game and do not have a clue on what is going on? We have some friendly players who are always willing to assist with those just getting their feet wet.

Give us a look, you will not be disappointed. XIII Legion may just be the Guild you have been looking for.

The Thirteenth Legion is a very active and vibrant community. We have grown a lot in the last month with great new additions and a couple of old friends returning to the fold. We have events going on almost every day, so check out our calendar for things that interest you!

New this month we started a second Operation on Friday night to train less experienced folks on how to do Operations. These trainees have made great strides and worked their way through story mode versions of Eternity Vault, Karagga's Palace, and Explosive Conflict.

We also had Ops groups clear Terror from Beyond and Scum and Villany this month. The Operations that we have on the calendar are almost always open for anyone to sign up. The sign up is mostly first come first serve but there are obviously minimum gear requirements for certain Operations and we also need to make sure we fill the correct roles. We don't mind teaching new people the Operations fights or helping folks gear up.

One cool thing we did this month was an all trooper operation. A team of 16 Commandos and Vanguards descended on Karagga's Palace and wiped the place clean with mortar volleys, ensuring that Karagga would not terrorize people anymore.

Here is a great video of the event put together by one of our members.

Our Imperial Guild, Vindicta, is also very active even though we are primarily a Republic guild. We run Operations, Flashpoints, Toborro's, Datacron runs, and many other things on the Imperial side.

And of course last but not least, we are an RP guild! We hold weekly RP events plus a monthly guild meeting. We also have a number of RP static leveling teams, but people are always willing to start more! We have a fairly large library of member created RP content on our website as well.

Hopefully this link will work for everyone. If you are interested in our RP story check out the Story So Far post

We do have a membership cap of 125 but we aren't full yet! So feel free to apply if you think this would be a guild of which you would like to be a part!

August are the dog days of summer, the heat and travelling slowed activity down a little bit this month. Many of us are recovering from tauntaun- and veractyl-induced madness. However, we still got a lot accomplished. We added a few great new members and recruits. We cleared Operations modes that we hadn't done before. Even PvP activity has started picking up! We have events going on almost every day, so check out our calendar for things that interest you!

After attempting 8 man Scum and Villany and getting bad draws on the Droid "puzzle" we finally did a run where we cleared the entire operation. We also cleared 16 man story mode Terror From Beyond for the first time! 16 man Scum and Villany proved a bit too much for us though we did get the weekly done by defeating Thrasher before calling it a night. We also defeated Nightmare Mode Eternity Vault a couple of times.

This month we did an all consular run of Karagga's Palace! We started on nightmare mode but the Forman Crusher was too much for our Shadow Tank to get through (grumble grumble I'm 5 levels higher with pretty good gear grumble grumble ;-)). We knocked it down to Hardmode, but even then we got flattened a bit as seen here. We did clear the Operation though.

We also cleared all Republic side datacrons through Makeb with a great deal of help for the leaping-impaired from the very patient non-leaping-impaired.

Our Imperial Guild, Vindicta, is also very active even though we are primarily a Republic guild. We run Operations, Flashpoints, Toborro's, Datacron runs, and many other things on the Imperial side. We did a number of RP activities on the Imperial side this month.
