    BMC Recruitment Instructions
    STEP 1:
    Anyone that is interested in joining the BMC must register with Enjin using the same display name as their in-game character's name and then join the BMC through the BMC Website on the JOIN BMC page.

    STEP 2:
    Once the application is received, a BMC Officer will review the application and make sure the applicant's Enjin display name matches their in-game character's name. At this point the BMC Officer will add the applicant to their in-game friends list.

    STEP 3:
    If the applicant's Enjin display name matches, a BMC Officer will comment in the applicant section of the application and ask the applicant to sync his/her TS3 with the website and come into the BMC TS3.

    STEP 4:
    Once it is verified that the applicant is in the BMC TS3, the BMC Officer will send a BMC Guild invitation via the in-game friends list and approve the applicant's application on the BMC Website upon induction into the BMC in-game.

    STEP 5:
    The BMC Officer will then remove the applicant from their in-game friends list.

    Long live the BMC! I'm glad to be supporting this group!

    To the readers, I encourage you to visit us in-game, on our website, or on our Mumble! As SotA continues development, we're constantly coming up with new ideas to support players of all kinds, both inside and outside our guild. We're always happy to make new friends!

    See you in New Britannia!

    I'm curious, is the term 'mining company' only relevant in name or do you take more of a gathering/crafting focus (whilst still letting others in)? Do you work as a company like in other games such as EVE?

    Short Answer: Yes, we do have a gathering/crafting focus, and we do work as a company.

    We're a no-pressure guild as a whole; we have no specific requirements for our members, although a good attitude and an open mind are preferred! Myself, I'm one of the people in charge of our more combat-oriented folks, organizing groups to tackle the bigger challenges that SotA has to offer. For example, BMC membership currently clears the Braemar Crypt (aka - Chillbain's Compendium), and does so several times on most days! If you're online in the evening, look for us dancing in the streets of Braemar after a successful run! :D

    You will find, however, that our core membership takes our operation very seriously, and as the game moves toward launch, expect the BMC to become a major force in SotA's economy, much as we were in UO!

    I encourage you to check out our website (bmcguild.enjin.com) to understand more of how we operate. If you have more specific questions, you're welcome to contact us via the website, or you can contact one of our members in-game (if we don't have the answer, we'll direct you to the appropriate Officer that can field your question)!

    We look forward to seeing you in-game, Bard!

    I'm glad to hear from the public here on our thread and I appreciate the information concerning 3rd party exploits within the guild, which is not condoned. I would appreciate readers to not judge or label the BMC by the acts of an individual and if anyone has any information such as a name or a screenshot of the alleged member, I would appreciate a private PM with such evidence so that the situation can be addressed within our ranks.

    Does the guild also encourage exploration? Because I was thinking I would be spending most of my time writing about my travels throughout the world.

    I think the better question is: what DON'T we encourage? We have folks from all walks of life here!

    In all seriousness, our mission first and foremost is mercantile (see above posts), but because we have an active, well-established membership, I've yet to meet a member who hasn't found their own niche in the BMC, and we love to help each other out with our projects!

    Whether or not you consider BMC as your future guild, please visit us at Blackrock Cove as you explore Novia; I imagine you'll find that many of us would enjoy hearing stories of your exploits (we may even swap stories with you! ;))

    Well I am a fan of mercantilism, plus it would be interesting to be a merchant in a game like this. How do I join up?

    Glad to hear you're interested! To start, I recommend meeting up with other members of the BMC (we're trying to avoid 'random invites' ;)). There are several ways you can do this:

    1. Meet up with us in-game! This release, we have a Crafting Hall in Owl's Head (on the west side of town) where many of us meet, but you can generally find us all over!
    2. Log in to our Mumble server! We have several members that hang out in the Tavern (our public channel) and will be ecstatic to tell you about us! Address - bmcguild.mumble.com - Port: 8620 (We'd appreciate if you use your in-game name so we can easily identify you.) :)
    3. Check out our website: bmcguild.enjin.com You can hop onto our forums, check out our HUGE gallery of screenies, and learn more about what we are as a guild!

    I won't be online until late tonight, but I hope to hear from you soon!

    Would Saturday be a good time to join up, seeing as that is when the next guild meeting tales place? I'm having trouble finding a guild member that will sit still long enough for me to talk to them, plus I'm not that comfortable with just joining the chat without anyone in it knowing me. :confused:

    That'll be fine, although you're welcome to whisper one of the guys in the photo above; you've already met Yellow King on our website. Most of them are online in the afternoon/evening, RL schedules permitting.

    This guild sounds great! I'm not a follower by any means but it seems like you'd have what I'm looking for: groups to level with. I do gathering and mining and mostly sell the stuff, but if anyone would want something, I would gladly share with them. My character isn't very high level, he's just 34.

    I recently purchased the early access to the game and would love to become part of this group.

    Is there anyway to save this sword during any future wipes?​
    Lord British informed me that it was the first sword that he ever crafted in the old kingdom or the new and I promised him that it would kept in the BMC Keep for safe preservation for all time. It is also the sword that he publically knighted me with. It has significant sentimental value.
