Amended Article VI: Section G: Alts
By Council Decision

Added text in Blue

Section G: Alts & Server Transfers
Alts or alternate characters are permitted in the Guild. You may have as many alts in S3G as you wish which is subject to change due to member limits in the game guild. Members may also have alts in another guild so long as that guild does not reside on the same server as S3G.

In the event of a S3G guild server transfer to a server in which S3G characters are playing in another guild on said server, those characters with memberships to other guilds are permitted to remain in those guilds providing the member has at least one character who is a member with the S3G guild. Unguilded characters of S3G members or characters that leave a non-S3G guild under this "grandfather" clause must either remain unguilded or join the S3G guild.

Section F: Witnessing
Members are permitted and highly encouraged to be a witness for Jesus Christ to others whenever possible. As we have not read SWTOR's TOS Members should be aware of the Terms of Service (ToS) of each game; we do not yet know on what level it will be permitted in their game, however, we should never pass up an opportunity to share the Gospel to with a lost soul.
