Greetings from the Thirteenth Legion!

You can find us on the web at

We are a Republic guild on the Star Forge server with a sister Imperial guild open only to members of the Thirteenth. The mission of this guild is to share good roleplaying experiences, help members in conquering PVE instances, and most importantly, to maintain an out-of-game atmosphere of friendship and civility. The Thirteenth Legion had its roots 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 trial 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 has since been 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 stance of non-involvement. 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 Imperial guild, Vindicta, was founded around 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. They've been joined through the years by new faces who have a bone to pick with the XIIIth, opportunists looking for glory or steady pay, and masterminds looking to direct a powerful band of misfits for their own purposes... among others.

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 too! We welcome hardcore players even though the guild is mostly focused on casual players.

We are a mature guild, which means 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 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 many of us 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 and respect 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, drop atrocious puns during Operations, and pass around Monty Python memes! We are all playing The Old Republic because we love Star Wars and want to share the fun.

We are not here for pwning n00bs, high-end raiding, PvP, power leveling, 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 Thirteenth 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.

If you think the Thirteenth might be a good fit for you, visit our website, look around, and submit an application!

Status of the Thirteenth - October 2017 Round Up

Conquest: This month we respected the “Time of Peace” armistice imposed by Republic leadership and refrained from spreading our influence on the various planets throughout the galaxy. We will return though...

Republic Ops: While we did not exert our power in conquest, we continued to carry out operations against various enemies of the Republic. One week we paid a visit to the Temple of Sacrifice to face off against our old adversary: Revan. And on another occasion we took a trip to Iokath to the Valley of the Machine Gods to face the rage of Tyth and his brethren!

**This group is always looking for new members! We run 8-person Ops every Friday at 10pm EST/ 7pm PST.

Imperial Ops: Our Imperial counterparts in Vindicta continued to to deliver decisive victories for the Empire in the operational activities. A trip to Oricon and the Dread Palace was successful in mitigating the threat of the Dread Masters. Pirates on Rishi also sought to defy the might of the Empire and Vindicta undertook the challenge of the Ravagers to remind them of their place in the galaxy.

**This group is always looking for new members! We run 8-person Ops every Thursday at 10pm EST/ 7pm PST.

RP: Our adventures this month focused a lot on helping individual characters in their various missions for the Republic and Empire, with small and larger scale consequences. One of our members had been trying to hide his SIS association on a larger project, but was thwarted by a well-intentioned Jedi. And a trip to Nar Shaddaa to inspect power generators resulted in the slaughter of many vrblthers.

*RP nights are Monday at 8:30pm EST/ 5:30 PST and Saturday, which starts at 6pm EST/9pm PST. All are welcome!

The Thirteenth is also on Twitter! Stop by and say hello!

That’s all for last month! See everyone around the galaxy!

Status of the Thirteenth - November 2017 Round Up

We’re on the Star Forge now! Woot!

Guild Meeting: For this month’s meeting we held a rousing session of guild darts on IIum and flung our bodies off of a cliff in the name of fun and prizes. No passersbys were injured, but a couple of kind folks did help with rezzing! Finding ourselves with a bit of extra time we went on a quick galaxy romp and killed a few world bosses for CXP and profit.

Conquest: The “Time of Peace” has ended! No significant activity on the leader boards this month for us, but we’re looking forward to the challenge of competing with our new neighbors following the server merges.

Republic Ops: Our Friday night group was busy all month as we sought to help get folks credit towards the Darth Hexxid companion and the associated achievement. One week we paid Karagga a visit, and messed up his palace to say the least. We also decided to listen to SOA complain, again, for what felt like 20,000 years, in our recent trip to the Eternity Vault!

**This group is always looking for new members! We run 8-person story mode Ops every Friday at 10pm EST/ 7pm PST.

Imperial Ops: While the annual mass consumption of turkeys in the U.S. interrupted our Imperial ops schedule, we still had a strong month taking on Soa in hard mode, as well as a trip to Darvannis to annoy all of the various villains lurking there, as well as stealing their loot.

**This group is always looking for new members! We run 8-person story mode Ops every Thursday at 10pm EST/ 7pm PST.

RP: Stories of mystery and intrigue were explored by the RP group this month. New allies, and old enemies, led to a mission to free slaves on Rishi. And a simple heist on Corellia turned out to be more than what it seemed after a double cross.

**RP nights are Monday at 8:30pm EST/ 5:30 PST and Saturday, which starts at 6pm EST/9pm PST. All are welcome!

That’s all for November! See everyone around the galaxy!

Breaking from the monthly update format for some information sharing! For all of those folks with many alts, and who enjoy RP, here's a good resource if you're struggling with names for your characters:

And a friendly plug for the Thirteenth's RP nights--Monday and Saturday evenings--seems appropriate as well!

Another update as we are testing out a new event to add to our roster of events that we're calling Social Point Sundays!

We're looking to run flashpoints for fun and to help folks who might be looking to earn some social points to unlock the goodies that go with them! Even if you're not looking for points, there are worse ways to wind down a weekend than hanging with guildies!

Our inaugural run will start with The Esseles at 8:00pm EST/5:00pm PST!

This looks like an interesting group to get to know, as a 36 year navy disabled veteran with a family. Be checking out the website and hopefully see you all in-game.

Status of the Thirteenth - December 2017 Round Up

Happy New Year! We hope everyone has a great 2018!

Guild Meeting: This month we went world boss hunting for our monthly get together. Schedules aligned to give us an excellent turn out! Looking forward to the January meeting where we’ll have some new recruits to show off!

Conquest: Despite Life Day bringing family and friends together off-line, the Thirteenth had a second place showing in Total Galactic War event! We pulled together 6,561,215 points, which, while significantly less than the winning guild, was above average for the rest of the board. Nicely done all!

Republic Ops: Life Day celebrations didn’t inhibit the Thirteenth’s scheduled operations this month. For one, we defeated Coratanni and Ruugar in the Ravagers operation, as well as responding to the Chancellor’s call to assist with clearing out warlords on Darvannis.

**This group is always looking for new members! We run 8-person story mode Ops every Friday at 10pm EST/ 7pm PST.

Imperial Ops: Vindicta showed the galaxy its might this month in their operational activities. One night they smashed Brontes’ many grabby fingers during a visit to the Dread Fortress, and then they showed Bestia, Tyrans, Calphayus, and Raptus who was the true power in the galaxy.

**This group is always looking for new members! We run 8-person story mode Ops every Thursday at 10pm EST/ 7pm PST.

RP: Our roleplaying adventures this month spanned the galaxy. Members of Vindicta were introduced to Barakka the Hutt in the swamps of Hutta, who had some technology for sale. On the Republic side, lessons in the Force were offered by one of our Jedi on Alderaan, just to name a couple of examples. And we’re not done yet! More stories await in January!

**RP nights are Monday at 8:30pm EST/ 5:30 PST and Saturday, which starts at 6pm EST/9pm PST. All are welcome!

Other Events:
We had our first social point farming run this month! The Thirteenth cleared out the Esseles and, going forward, will alternate between clearing flashpoints on the Republic and Imperial side for fun, profit, and points!

That’s all for December! See everyone around the galaxy!

The Thirteenth is also on Twitter! Stop by and say hello!

A quick update to our ongoing events! We're adding another activity to our calendar! Unofficially it's "Wednesday Night Shenanigans." It's a bit of a mixed bag, but, in this case, that's a good thing! Things we'll be looking to do:

- Run ops
- Complete group achievements
- World bosses
- Datacrons (if needed)
- etc.
