Who are we?
We mainly cater to the mature player. Players who have time restraints, family, spouses, full time jobs. Players who know what it's like to have bills and mortgages to pay. Players who know what "waggro" is (I just described myself!) We know real life commitments are a priority with older more mature gamers, and thus we'll never overload you with requirements, and expect you to jump through a bunch of silly hoops just to get a few hours of gaming in with your friends.
Some of our core values and offerings:
*A thriving healthy community, filled with activity. Members are encouraged to become involved and speak their minds. Everyone has a voice, and using it helps us grow wiser and gives us the means and information necessary to continually improve!
* Not just another guild, but an actual community for members to socially interact with other members on a personal level. I've made a good many friends through guilds, a few have even become real life friends. It's our mission to offer a respectable environment void of idiots and muppet heads (yes I said muppet heads...remember them??) to everyone who walks the path of adventure with us.
*A golden rule we believe in: Treat others as you would like to be treated. We like everyone to think of their fellow members and guild mates as family not just another number or body. Get to know your fellow guild mates, and most importantly treat each and every new member with respect. We're all on the same team and working for the same cause, It's important to know you can count on your new brother or sister in a pinch
* Officers - not an elite club. Officers are there for the people, and represent the masses. Officers earn their places among us, and are expected to earn their keep. At no time do we ever plan on making the officership a "cool club for kids".
These are a few of the basic values we carry with us, whatever the cause or game may be, these will always travel with us.
Below is our guild summary.

Guild Website: hammerfistclan.com | net | org
Main Time Zone: [USA]
Web Admin: Brakkish
We're an adult guild looking for mature members age 18 or older. We're a social/casual guild passionate about our gaming. How you choose to spend your gaming time is up to you. Dictating how and when you need to play is not our style, we understand part-time gamers with full-time lives.
It's our goal to provide a friendly, stress free environment in which to enjoy the game. If you are looking to join us, some things you should keep in mind are: We value friendship over loot and hoarding. Guilds can be an excellent place to meet new friends and share good times and experiences that keep with you for years. Squabbling over loot has no place here. Providing a decent environment, void of riff-raff and distractions is an A-1 priority in any MMO we play. Leaving the drama behind and entering a world of fantasy and fun is what it's all about.
Guild category: Adult 18+
Voice: Yes, Ventrillo - lightspeed
Recruiting members status: Open to friendly adults 18 years of age or more.
Server type: Apache - Linux [stable, secure, reliable]

HFC has an international presence with members from many regions. Our majority lies within the US and Canada, Oceanic trailing that. It's unlikely members will have any issues finding teammates to group with spanning many different time zones.
Simplistic - efficient. Captains > Officers > Crew. Keeping in line with our casual/social nature we've elected to keep things simple.
We've decided to go Dual Faction. This means we will be accepting applications for both the Federation and Klingon side.
Two teams, two commanders, two officer teams, twice the fun for everyone.
A lot of questions have been asked as to what faction we plan to join.
We're currently discussing the possibility of a dual faction launch. If there's enough interest in doing so, we certainly will.
Updates will be posted here regarding our decision.
