The Imperial Guard is a Star Wars: The Old Republic Sith Aligned guild.
About the guild
The Imperial Guard was originally founded to play in Star Wars Galaxies. In Star Wars Galaxies, we were located on the Naritus Server and stood as the strongest Imperial guild in terms of members and successes. We had developed a large base complex that we defended from multiple Alliance attacks and we would lead "RP-ish" Imperial crackdowns of major cities. The Imperial Guard ran strong for two years and then slowly phased out as Star Wars Galaxies saw less and less content upgrades.
For SW:TOR, we will continue to be known as "The Imperial Guard" and will be bringing everything that was great about the original and adding to it with a updated organizational structure, streamlined ranks, more player interaction in the guild (guild rewards based on a point system, things of that nature), and Awards/Medals to recognize those of our players who have dedicated themselves to the Guard.
The Imperial Guard will focus on the two primary aspects of a massively multiplayer online game; Player vs Player and Player vs Environment. Our hope is that SW:TOR will include some sort of player build able community so we can recreate our infamous military complexes. But things like that will be completely dependent on the game. Rest assured, if there is a third factor available for participation (space battles, player cities, etc), the Guard will be active in it.
Our approach to Player vs Environment will be a staggered raid schedule that allows for multiple runs of "dungeons" each week. This will allow players in varying time zones to have a chance to participate, without being on-line at some ungodly hour.
Our approach to Player vs Player will be driven by practice and training. We will select those individuals, whom enjoy "mastering" PvP in an MMO, and then take their expertise and train our other members to create a fighting force the likes of which rarely see.
Our approach to Role Playing is completely optional. We feel that if you like to Role Play, that is great, we will not hold it against you. If you don't like to, that is fine too.
We want all types of people to enjoy their time spent in The Imperial Guard. The community is important to us, and it is what makes The Guard what is it. Please take some time and enjoy our site, we have lots of information and resources available. If you think The Guard is the sort of guild you'd like to be part of; review our Code of Conduct / What Is Expected Of You information and then apply!

The Imperial Guard is structured like a military organization, divided into Divisions, then Units and finally Squads. Each grouping has a Commanding Officer(CO) and an Executive Officer(XO). Every new recruit is assigned to a Squad in one of the Divisions. Currently, there are four Units in each the 215th and the 902nd, and each Unit has at least three Squads each. Roughly, each squad will have 5-10 members. We currently house over 100 members, and continue to grow. We have the pleasure of running with mature individuals that can contribute certain skills to make the experience for its members a notable one.
