The Chapter, one of the four main gangs in the gang system on Legacy, derived its name from a previous gang with the same name in the old gang system. It was run by Deeg, who later became staff, and perhaps not coincidentally, the staff representative for the new Chapter.

TC Werewolves Game 1 run by Zerocomman, Game 2 run by ExDeath and Game 3 run by Pascal.
The first council was: Ross, Pink, Cartoon, Cannon and Primie.
Wolf is the staff rep for this gang, it's his job to make sure the gang is running smoothly and deal with issues that gang leadership can not handle.
During the contest against cartoon by Skorne, jake012089, Testament and Necria for a council position, many ideas to improve the gang were brought forward for debate. The idea which drew most attention was one from Necria, that the gang should undertake an extensive review of its membership and kick from the gang anybody who obviously did not play the game anymore or were providing cheap experience to other gangs by not equipping weapons and armor.
The topic was discussed at length in The Chapter's Members Forum, with several members questioning whether the benefits of such an action would be worth coming last in the gang level rankings. However, most people believed that such a purge would have a two-fold effect; it would deprive Dark Flame and Blade of Dawn of easy wins, as well as providing more targets for Chapter members. These people felt that the total gang level would prove meaningless when gang warfare came out, and it would be far more important to have good quality, active members.
A referendum was put up by the council to decide whether the purge should go ahead. In the end, the results were decisive, 72% in favor of the idea, 17% against it and 11% undecided.
Thus, soon after the results came in, members of the gang began collating lists of people who were eligible to be kicked (following a strict set of criteria). These lists were reviewed by a third party, then members who were still on the list were either kicked straight away if still rank 1 or put to a council vote for kicking.
When the other gangs realised what was happening, they either followed suit to a certain extent or complained to Zorg. Believing that they had followed correct procedure The Chapter defended their actions, stating that xjoewhitex, their staff rep at the time, would have seen such a prominent topic being debated in the forums, and have reported the idea to Zorg who, they felt, had given tacit approval by not commenting on it.
However, it soon became clear that Zorg had not been informed of the purge and that he would not allow the action. The recently kicked members were reinstated to the gang, council votes were closed and xjoewhitex was removed from being staff rep for The Chapter (he later quit staff to become a player.)
Despite initial dismay and frustration on the part of many members in the gang, most accepted Zorg's decision. There were many positives to come out of the situation. It showed that the gang was unified in its objectives and its realisation that the total level was a relatively meaningless statistic. It served as a spur to focus attention on training up newer members to keep them active and well equipped. Finally, it showed that the gang was organised, efficient and could make tough decisions when needed.
