The COVENANT CRAFTERS
We are a group intending to monopolize the market of bulk ore using collusive prices among miners.Periodically, we will meet after the game’s launch to discuss and debate prices for ores, armors, and weapons that ALL of the Union’s members will follow. The goal of this is to make sure that everyone within the Union sells as much as they can mine/craft while keeping the price relatively profitable.
Fancy talk aside, this guild is intended for people looking to make some serious septims off of Mining and mining related crafts when ESO launches. We run things fairly liberally here with our policies. We travel in groups to mines, clear and guard the mines, harvest all the ore, craft weapons and armor, and sell our goods. When launch comes, we will debate and negotiate prices on ores, armors, and weaponry. The guild will collect a fee from your sales of around 3-5% of the item’s value (minimum of one septim). We have alliances with 4 other guilds directly, while we are also in a couple of coalitions of Daggerfall Covenant guilds so business will be big, so don’t feel like you may mine or craft too much stuff and won’t be able to make a sell.
To do that, the members of Covenant Crafters will set standardized prices on ores, ingots, weapons, and armors we collect and craft. Assuming there will be an Auction House, members of CC will all sell iron ore for the same price. That way, miners who would normally compete against each other can work together to make the most profit. There will be guild-stores, but they are only for members of that guild. It is possible for the guild to have a store open to the public, but that would require taking a keep in Cyrodiil, which will be pretty easy considering we have our allies with serious man-power. Using the excess profits we hope to make, we can bribe miners who may be less than willing to join the Union into joining or to keep them from mining. In the event that bribery isn’t enough, we can use our large guild to mine faster than they will be able to, effectively cutting them off from their supply. This will make it so they can’t mine, and they will have to charge more than us because they have way less to sell. In the end it will be for the betterment of us suppliers, the miners. CC’s monopoly on one or more kinds of ore will allow us to set high prices and keep competitors and independent miners out of the market. With our monopoly, we can use our influence in resources to gain powerful allies, which we already have, and use those allies to our advantage (like taking a keep to have a public-store)

Oh I see
Right. In a nutshell, our Goal is to have complete control over the prices of ore, especially in large amounts, in the Elder Scrolls Online.
Whats in it for me?
And by ‘me’ I mean ‘you’. The Covenant Crafters hopes offer the benefit of the doubt that the minor/supplier will never get cheated by the consumer. There is a never-ending demand for ores and metals in many different crafts, and you should recieve due compensation for supplying that metal. That is the purpose of the Covenant Crafters: to protect the miner and his/her rights as a supplier of necessary goods.
If you are interested in joining the Covenant Crafters, it is open recruitment so sign right up. If your looking for a little more of a leadership position, send me a message. The following two position carry alot of responsibility and there for carry alot of power. I’d like to have few of the following.
Economic Advisers – might sound kind of silly, but people who understand economics and can explain to anyone who wants to know are more than welcome. Because I’m no expert at economics, I might have some questions for you too.
Organizers – While I’ve played MMORPG’s before, and TSE games for sure, I can’t be on all the time. A few people who can organize “mining raids,” or small parties who can quickly and efficiently travel routes to farm ore are more thean welcome. Alternatively, working together with other Officer positions to keep the Guild running is a must.
