GST is a PvE driven guild with some PvP as well that has been around since launch. Some of our members have been in different MMO such as Runes of Magic, World of Warcraft, Diablo, and GW2, and now we are tearing it up in Star Wars the Old Republic. Everything that happens in the guild, a guild member has a say so in it. PvE raiding is our main focus and we have fun as we clear content. Our guild members are second to none. They come from all walks of life as well from all over parts of America, Wales, Denmark, and Canada. Some are pretty new to the MMO world while others have been in the MMO world since the mid 90’s. The level of expertise is wide and we are willing to help anyone along the way. As we are a raid focus guild we do not carry anyone in our progression raiding, but as well we try to help improve everyone style of play if need be. We all have great attitudes towards one another and we do not put up with any childish behavior. Even though we are a laid back guild; we still enforce our rules and look out for one another like any family would. In our member’s minds we are fighters, our hearts are lighters, our soul is the fluid and our style sparks it right up. As long as there is still a hunger for progress and will in use then expect a triumph at the end of a raid night whether we get down a boss or not. There is no one left behind in this guild and we help anyone and everyone achieve what they are looking for in this game .
What is the purpose and goal of Galactic Slave Traders? GST exists to enhance the enjoyment of its members in the Star Wars universe. The goal of GST is to create a friendly group of players to join in adventures in the Star Wars the old republic and extend that out to members of the Star Wars community. GST is happy to help players explore new areas of the game, defeat operation bosses and learn new lore as we go along. We welcome players to GST trying to find a home regardless if they are new to MMO’s or even veterans who want to have fun and raid without the grueling 7 days a week raiding. Where possible we will seek out like-minded guilds and form a working alliance to ensure that our players have access to the support and grouping structure required to play an MMO. This has worked in the past and we have made great strides while doing so.
Future applicants: To become a member of GST you can make your request known either by submitting an application on the website or by contacting an officer in game (it’s best to do both as you will need access to the forums if you choose to join and only an app can provide that). After you've been accepted you will become an Initiate for a period no longer than 1 month (this is subject to change depending on how you are towards the guild). Please see guild ranks on what each rank does and the privileges as well. If we (You and GST) don't reach a comfort level during your Initiate period chances are you might not be a fit for our guild. Most guilds put a minimum period but we believe once you have proven yourself to fit within our group you are more than welcome to join us.

Organization of GST: The Ranks of GST was established to help in the organization process to help members progress thru the guild and to know who they can go to for problems or assistance. These ranks are set up not only by our officers but as members as well. You decide what rank you want to be by either proving yourself day by day that you can handle that rank, being active, and helping out. The rank goes as follow:
These are new people to the guild. You will spend 1 month (maybe less depending on how much you contribute) during that time you will have to show and prove that you want to be a member of GST. This consists of showing up to guild events, raiding, donating to the guild bank, etc. During that time you will not have access to the guild bank to take things out but only to see what’s there and to contribute if you choose to. If you want an item you will have to talk to an officer about it.
Member To attain member status you must have done everything as an Initiate and have knowledge of the game and some mechanics. You will also be required to make at least one post on the forums. Member status entitles you have access of the guild bank (first tab) and can request items from any guild tab except the Guild Crafting tab and Ship Shit tab. also first choice for fill in when regular raid member can’t make the raid. Also this rank is for people who were a higher rank before but has taken a break from the game (once you return your rank will be reinstated by an officer). Only Dark Council, Wrath, and Dark Lord can promote people to this rank.

Darth Prospec, Adun, Mise
Officers have full guild bank privileges within the guild and have access to the officer chat in the guild. They are the first line you should go to if there is a problem or issue with any GST members/SWTOR members or any situation you need help with. Darths run all the crafting for the guild. They also help with guild events and conquest events. They also help the Raid Leaders in their day to day operation as they are their backups. Officers are appointed by the Dark Lord with the approval of the Dark Council and Wrath.
Dark Council Darooko, Sheilarae, Juliax has all the same power and privileges as the Darth rank but also have the power to create groups and set up raids with the raid leaders. Can take out money from the guild bank as well and items from any tab. Also have access to behind the scenes forum action and can handle any problem that comes up. They can change the rank of any member in the guild and can update their member notes as well. At least 1 Dark-council member is on a day just in case there is a problem or someone needs help. They have the final say so in all actions of the guild.
Dark Lord’s Wrath Nigredo
The eyes, ears, and voice of the dark lord, the Wrath has all the power of Dark Council on down and even when the Dark Lord is away, he has his powers as well. Over see’s all raiding, website admin, Teamspeak admin. Also known as HR, if there is a problem with any member in the guild, you will talk to him and The Wrath will straighten it out. Full blown enforcer of the guild and will do anything and everything to make sure the job gets done. There can only be one Wrath at any given time.
Dark Lord Blackfrost
The rank of Dark Lord contains all of the rights and privileges of a member, Darth, Dark Council, and Wrath. In addition, the Dark Lord may veto any action put in place by Darth or Dark Council unless the majority goes with the one vote. He is the only person that can change raiding schedules. The Guild Master serves as long as he or she desires, and a successor will be named by all Darth and Dark Council of the Guild only when the Dark Lord has decided to resign. In the absence of the Dark Lord, The Dark Lord's Wrath will be in charge and have all the power the Dark Lord has. Note that while the Guild has no formal democratic structure, the Dark Lord, Wrath, Dark Council, and Darths will take the wishes of the members into account whenever possible.
Unforeseen Amendments • As before, the Dark Lord has the final say. A Darth and above is not allowed to deviate from this charter or enforce rules not explicitly mentioned here in without consulting the Dark Lord first, except under extreme circumstances. • The Dark Council, Wrath and Dark Lord reserves the right to change the contents of the Charter at any time if is deemed necessary to do so. Agreement between the Dark Council, Wrath and Dark Lord is sufficient for such changes.
