CLAN GHILAIN - LGBTQAI+, women, disability safe space / relaxed, no-pressure PvE / no voice chat

CLAN GHILAIN” is a social guild with a mission. Our goal is to create a safe space for those who need it, to enjoy the game content without ANY kind of pressure or anxiety.

:star: Disclaimer: this guild is primarily for LGBTQIA+, women and disabled people (including those with mental ilnesses/disorders). If you do not fall in any of these categories, we're not the right place. To get the invite, you need to be a part of these groups AND want to play the game in a no-pressure way. :star:

With the world being so stressful our guild offers a moment of calm. It caters to those who don’t usually get a lot of space in gaming community and those, who don't like the pressure that usually comes with MMO games. We're simply here to enjoy each other's company and play the game in a very relaxed way.

Our focus is to provide a safe space from ANY kind of elitism. We don't care in the slightest what's your gear, what's your DPS, if you miss a mechanic - it's all fine. We gather a lot of players with serious struggles and those are always taken under account at every event/activity we do. We will not tolerate people that want to stress everyone else into doing things a certain way. If you want to do everything "properly" and like to give lectures in dungeons or trial, like to brag about your DPS, flaunt your knowledge on everything or give unsolicited advice, we are NOT the right guild. We strongly support individualism of our players.
If you're a veteran player that has done most of the content, we are NOT a good match.

While this may sound harsh, we're really not - we only want to be clear about what's this guild about. We are a safe space for those who need it.
We're a "no-pressure" guild, which means you play the game however you like - be social and join events if you feel like it, or don't, if you're too tired. We'll be here for you when you feel more social. We'll always help with things, be it crafting, taking down world bosses or clearing public dungeons. If we go to a group dungeon together, we'll explain mechanics calmly and as clearly as it's needed. We are always happy to help!
We offer a stress-free start into the group content, so if you always wanted to try it, but were too stressed about it - we're the perfect place!

Important note: in this guild we play for fun, and fun only. Sometimes we run trials without full groups, some don't wear optimised gear, sometimes we go fishing only to end up throwing mudballs and dancing in Elden Root. If we wipe, we laugh, rezz and go again, then laugh some more. We do not strive to be perfect. But that doesn't mean we don't KNOW how to play the game - we do. This isn't supposed to sound harsh, but we've had players come play with us only to try and teach us how to do it. If you want to always do everything "properly" and get upset easily if something doesn't go the way it's "supposed to", or like to teach us how to play the game - consider another guild. We're not a place where that will fly. Here we relax and have fun, in a perfectly non-perfect way.
As one of our trusty members once wrote: "Don’t care if you are CP 1,000,000,000 or level 10. Jump in and kill things :smiley:"


:star: While this is a MMO and we do like to play together, we promote individualism. Everyone here plays the game in their own way - we have lore seekers, achievement hunters, traders, questers, house decorators fans, solo players - there is no right or wrong way to play it. As long as you let other pople do what they want, how they want it, without commenting or trying to "teach" them how to do it and giving unasked advice, you are very welcome. :star:

Our numbers aren’t big, but consist only of the nicest and kindest individuals. We are a lot more like a little family than a regular guild - always supporting each other, and having fun while playing the game. We're a specific guild that doubles as a safe space, therefore we are a little bit picky with the invites - they will be sent only to people who belong to the groups mentioned in the title. If you apply, remember to include that information about you (no need for details at all, we understand that can be very personal).

We do not and never will use voice communication in this guild, neither in dungeons nor trials.

:star: No kinds of sexism, transphobia, homophobia, ableism, elitism, toxicity or any kind of discriminatory behaviour will be tolerated here, not even in jokes. :star:
We are a completely safe space for trans people - we respect your pronouns and you can be as open as you want to be (or not at all, if that's your preferance). We offer accomodation in trials/dungeons (for example if you get sensory overwhelmed and need a break during a trial or anything similar).


If you feel like this is somewhere you'd fit in, write something about yourself and why you'd like to join the Clan - remember to include which of the groups mentioned in the title you belong to, and what kind of gameplay do you enjoy - either here or in-game (preferably an email, whispers can easily get lost) to @theLavellan

See you in Tamriel <3

    I'd be interested in joining, if you don't mind an adult beginner. The only games I've played before are Dragon Age (on casual!) so I do need some help understanding some of the things in ESO.

    Hello,

    I'm a CP 562, daily player PVE, mostly solo play until now - no PUGs, so despite the medium-high CP, I'm just starting to learn normal dungeons, have done only a few with a high CP friend alone, and begining to feel really frustrated.

    I want to do content in dungeons, not run through facerolling all the Bosses. I want to be healed and I want a tank and another DD to learn 4- man dungeon mechanics from nice people who actually want to take the time to teach dungeon and vet dungeon basics while having fun. When I've gotten that down, I want to learn to do trials like a pro. B)

    I have good gear, have been studying this game since I started playing, and now want to ease into group content.
    Trying to find the right guild with the right activities.

    DD Magplar main. Enchanting, Alchemy, Provisioning leveled, almost Master Clothier, Master Blacksmith, Master Woodworker - just a few items left to research last couple of traits on. Jewelry in the works still.

    Would love an invite @MorganaBlue in game :) Thank you.

    I am a mature player, (50+) and I have played games since Pong came out. Have played a few other MMOs, like WoW, GW2, FFXIV SWTOR and a few more for nearly 15 years. New in here though so I have, up until now, mostly done solo questing no PUGs, no dungeons, no trials.

    I love lore and content. I want to really see the dungeons and all (at least the first 5 times :) ) and not speedrun through . I have always been healer but have not dared to try that here...yet. Like the above poster I want to learn to do the dungeons and trials properly and in the company of nice people.

    As for crafting and level, I am level 22 and my crafting is a bit...meh atm. But I want to learn and contribute.

    @DBoy67 ingame if that sounds the least interesting.

    Hi I have been playing games for the last 20+ years, such as witcher, Assassins creed, dragon age etc. This is my first attempt at an online game and it is very daunting. I have been running around just questing and piggybacked with others through a Summerset public dungeon. That was an experience but as tonyb16 said it would be nicer to do dungeons at a slower pace. I find the chat hard to do as I have never really used chat at all and the acronyms thank goodness for google to help lol. I am mid 50's and your line of a safe haven for all adventurers is what attracted me being new and quite reserved. I am a level 43 nightblade stamina build and would love to be part of your guild. I reside in Australia though so unsure if the time differences will be an issue. My ingame character is Lollisock and user ID is @evenstephen

    Hi,

    this sounds like the right type of guild for me. I'm a returning 40-something PvE-player. I was on a quite a long break but I started to play again a few days ago. I play this game pretty much because of the group play but I've been known to spend quite some time fishing as well... :wink:

    Cheers,

    @MrMizz

    I really enjoyed Dragon Age and Skyrim. I wanted to give ESO a chance and as it turns out, I love it!

    I'm socially awkward, anxious and depressed so I'm looking for a kind and friendly community where I can help as well as get help. I have no problem soloing the quest lines but I need a group of people for social instances like dungeons and trials, where I don't have much experience.

    It takes me a while to muster the courage to say hi so don't hold it against me if I don't (right away).

    I'm a Warden DPS/Healer CP78, very new to the game and at times it can be overwhelming doing it alone. I appreciate all the help and tips I can get!

    Hi, this sounds like a nice place, I think I'd like to join.
    Name's Rewa, I'm a lifetime gamer and Elder Scrolls enthusiast since I was a little girl. CP 300, but don't let that fool you, I barely know anything, I'm mostly a solo player tbh, with my crippling social anxiety and all. I'd like to try things out though, in a friendly laid-back environment one day. Maybe make some friends too.
    I may have some altoholic potential (too. many. ocs!), but I'm focusing on my beloved Bosmer Warden main for now.

    @Rivvqah ingame. Thank you. :)

    Really interesting ethos but I've been kicked before from a social guild catering to "casual" gamers because I was not on Discord enough, or responding to cautionary messages ingame (which is a wonder in a chat so nicely integrated and practical).

    In any event, I'm mentioning that fact since I'm getting the same kind of vibe from the description of yours : social and casual but still with group content in mind, which would be perfect if you do not have to actually do group events every time one is planned, or be on Discord all the time ?

    I would be happy for some human sociality and the possibility (not the obligation) of some group activities, but I don't always have the time nor the wish for it. Since that inadequate level of involvement can appear pretty selfish, I prefer to be honest about the fact that I'm a solo player first.

    If you still have some place for a player like me, I'll be happy to join under the same IGN. If not, no hard feelings :)

    Hi Sirvaleen!
    In all honesty, we gather all kinds of players. Some are very active on Discord and participate all events, some say hi occasionally, some are mostly just going on about their business. We have absolutely no issue with either. You don't have to join Discord at all, if that is not your thing :) We have some general rules, we don't tolerate sexism, transphobia, homophobia, racism, ableism, elitism - but we'd never kick anyone for not being active enough! We all need a break from being social sometimes. However you like to play the game, that is only up to you, so I think it all sounds good and you are very welcome among us! I'll send you an invite as soon as I'm online :)

    Hi

    I am 43 and love playing casual PVE and to explore the world for the lore and the quests , and I'm quite a noob in this game.

    My timezone is GMT +1 (Italy) and mostly i play from around 9 PM to 11 PM (work and family are demanding!).

    I have a discord account but prefer to use ingame chat (because of noise if it is night and because english is not my first language) .

    I am interested in joining your guild and see if it is a good fit : my userid is @syrusfem .
