Starting a Christian Organization.

Recommended Posts

Starting a Christian Organization for fellow believers. If you’re an active gamer and sincere believer in Jesus Christ, I’d like to hear from you. This will not be my first time starting a guild for a game (as I’ve been playing PC games exclusively in a competitive setting for 20+ years) but this will be an organization I’m starting from scratch.

 

Feel free to message me here or preferably on Discord at mOG#1711. You should be familiar with comms discipline and avoid profanity if you’re looking to join. Taking the Lord’s name in vain and other forms of casual blasphemy are obviously prohibited. Other than that, there are no real requirements. 
 

Alternatively, if such an organization already exists within Dual Universe, let me know and if there’s not a great turn out from this thread I may end up just putting in an application there.

 

Thanks!

Greetings Anomolos, 

 

I am a follower of Christ and a gamer as well. I have recently become a patron of Dual Universe. I have been contemplating what to do about an organization to enhance the playing experience. As a Christian it can be difficult dealing with the online world as many do not hold to our core values. I was thinking about staring an org and so I did a quick search first to see what I could find out there. That led me to your post. I would enjoy discussing the possibilities with you. I am a long time player of Emperion Galactic Survival, Space Engineers and No Man's Sky. I have been playing Star Citizen but beleive the best days for them are out in the future somewhere. I am also looking forward to Starbase with anticipation in hopes that will be some good game play.

 

So, let's talk and see if there is a fit.

I should have added a little about myself.  I ran a small Diablo2 guild, which then spanned several games with the same core group.  I then joined a large multi-game guild, and held officer roles in a couple of the portals.

 

I tend to be a very quiet person, hence the brevity in the above post.  This coupled with not enjoying the locker room talk leads to me playing a lot of solo games, or going it alone in multiplayer games.  That's why i was excited to see your post.

 

I like PVP, but prefer it to be one aspect, not the core of my gaming time.  I enjoy a variety of games, and farming for materials and items relaxing. 

 

If we do join a Christian guild, the player base is going to be smaller, we will have to find ways to be competitive.   What I mean is that we probably won't be able to compete in say large ship production.  But we can scout and sell coordinates to good mining areas. 

 

I have discord, but don't usually have it running.  The best way to contact me for now is through here.

Hi Morlock,

 

That all sounds great. I tend to be way less quiet. I am pretty casual in my gaming. Not a huge PVP fan but will defend when attacked in multi player. I started as an RTS player in the C&C series. I am a retired IT professional. I raised my kids with lots of play parties in the house. I had a server that I built where I hosted a modded MineCraft build and we also played Battlefield II. Kids are all gone now and I was just remarried 3 months ago, ( I can share that story as we spend time in fellowship).  I am officially disabled with chronic intractable migraines. As a result, I have three modes, doing alright and able to play, on meds and able to play, down hard and sleeping or watching sermons and resting. 

 

The center of my life is Christ. I am a follower of reformed theology and would consider myself a Calvinist for the most part. I am a musician (guitar, voice) and am married to a pianist who is the music director at our church. We attend Westview Bible Church in Imperial Beach, Ca. Of course, attend does not apply right now but hopefully soon. I have been growing in my faith and understanding very quickly over the past few years. Again, long story for another time. 

 

I am looking forward to playing Dual Universe. I have played many hours of Empyrion Galactic Survival, Space Engineers and No Man's Sky. So I think Du have great possibilities. I am also looking forward to playing Starbase when it comes out. Oh, I play Star Citizen too though I am not a huge fanboy. I love to design and build. 

 

I am happy to start a small mining and trading operation in a relatively safe part of the DU universe. I am excited to be able to game with someone who shares faith in Christ. I have grown tired of playing with worldly people who's speech and attitudes break down rather than build up. 

 

I am leaving on Vacation in a few days so I will be out of comm range until after the 8th of August. We can hook up after that and get better acquainted and see if we are a fit.

 

Blessings, 

 

~Verd~

Hi, me again. So that reply I addressed to Morlock was really intended for Anomalosthough its about me in general as well. This is what happens when I have had a migraine and my brain is not firing as well as it should. However, great to see others (Morlock) interested in a Christian gaming group. Since we are told not to partner with the world (2 Cor 6:14-18) this is a good, Biblical idea. :)

Hi @Anomalos @Morlock and @Verd_Mooring

 

Welcome in the Dual Universe community!
 

Just a kind reminder though: while it's perfectly fine to gather between players sharing the same affinities (whether it's religion, culture, or any other topic), keep in mind that no promotion of any religion is allowed on any platform managed by Novaquark (the Dual Universe forum, the official Dual Universe Discord server, the in-game chat, or any of the social media managed by Novaquark). Also please refrain to bump the topic if there is no new reply for a while (if everyone started to do the same, it would become really messy).

 

We hope you'll understand our stance on the matter.


Best Regards,

Nyzaltar.

Yet you have a discord bot that makes fun of who certain people worship. Logic and reason need to be checked.
