[Society of Scholars] Social Guild for Lore Fans +Story-Mode Dungeon Runs+

[UPDATE] With the Frostvault and Depths of Malatar Dungeons being released as the beginning of the overarching storyline throughout the year, feel free to join our merry band of scholars on your quest runs through the dungeons, if you want to experience them at your own pace, explore everything and hear all of the dialogue! You don't have to be a member of the guild for this, just notify us on our discord that you would like to schedule a story-mode quest run for the dungeons, and we'll see who we can find for you. If you have your own friends or guild members to do the dungeon slowly with, great! But if not, we're here to help you get to experience the story. If you don't have or don't want to use Discord, message me in-game and I'll try to form a dungeon group and set a time that works for you as soon as I can. @Robo_Hobo

Discord Link: https://discord.gg/v6ysbnm

Hello! We're the Society of Scholars, a group of people that love the storylines of the Elder Scrolls Online, and talking about the lore of the Elder Scrolls Universe throughout the many games that we've had the chance to experience it through. We're a very laid-back guild with no activity, level or experience requirements that formed with the idea of bringing together people who share this interest, to engage in discussions in-game and on our discord, and to participate in ESO group activities together.

While we do the regular style of dungeon running, pledges and whatever achievements anyone wants to try to collect, we also offer people the chance to do dungeons in what we call a "Story Mode" style. If someone in our group has never done the dungeon before (or they have but only rushed it), and they want to experience the story of it at a slow pace so that they can read the dialogue and explore without feeling rushed, we let them. Some of the quests in the dungeons are quite interesting, and it's a shame that it's become difficult for a lot of people to get to do the quests in there this way, without story-dedicated groups that most players may not have access to.

You can expect our non-story mode dungeon runs to be equally as laid-back and pressure-free, even if we don't stop to read everything if everyone's done it before.

We're looking to expand our events into doing other things in the future too.

So, if any of this sounds like something you'd be interested in, let us know, and we'll send you an invite! Whether you're new to the game or the franchise, or a battle-hardened veteran, whether you're a loremaster or someone who's just started to take interest in the lore, whether you're online every day or only when new updates come out, you're welcome to be a part of our cult society.

I'm @Robo_Hobo in-game. Message me in-game or leave a message on this thread or on our discord server for a guild invite!

    I like your idea of this sort of guild. I also really really want to experience dungeons without being rushed. It's the main reason why I haven't done too many of them yet.

    I'm glad you like the idea behind it! Yeah, once we get enough people for it we can definitely start offering to help you and others to get a chance to experience group dungeons at a relaxed pace for the quests.

    What's your in-game name? I'll send you an invite. :)

    New dungeons, new quests. Let us know if you want to do the new Wolfhunter dungeons with us as your first playthrough, to take it slow and explore before doing your regular runs for gear and achievements!

    @Robo_Hobo: I'm.... not a big guild joiner. Mostly, I don't have much to offer guilds - too much lag (couple seconds usually) to do much with groups, I wouldn't ask a group to put up with that kind of lag! But your guild does sound interesting - I have some knowledge of the lore background, though in general I've been too busy playing the games to keep on top of the lore. I've played every ES game beginning with Arena when it released.

    I wouldn't ask any of you to mess with my lag for dungeons for sure, but for convos about the games and lore, well, yes, I'd be interested.

    It's awesome that you've been a fan of TES from Arena! I've only started with Oblivion and played back as far as Morrowind myself.

    We'd definitely love to have you, lag and all, in our conversations and our dungeons. Our story mode runs are specifically to help people who otherwise normally don't get the chance to do the dungeons, to be able to experience them, and the quests in them. They're a very relaxed pace. :)

    We just did Banished Cells 1 the other day listening to all of the dialogue, reading every scrap of literature in the dungeon (which revealed new insights behind the quest there that I never had the chance to do before starting this guild), and even translating the Daedric words on the walls in some parts of the dungeon. (Although they usually just turned out to spell Molag Bal, he really likes having his name written everywhere lol)

    And I definitely understand being too busy playing the game to catch up on all of the lore always. TES has a lot of it, and I love learning about it as well as playing the games. I like to see it as: Always having something new to learn.

    I'll send you an invite when I get home later today :)

    I really want to do dungeons but not be rushed through them. I have a lot of lowbies and 2 vets but I have done maybe 2 dungeons. BTW, I've been in the game since beta but all my friends left the game. I'm CP324. My vets are DK but she's not a tank and a nightblade that only uses bow and dual daggers, no other skills. I wanted one non magic character.
    I have a Bosmer, three cats, 2 Imps, a dunmer a tall elf and just about every pet and mount in the game. I can officially say that I'm in deep!

    Hehe, yes we do accept them. We don't discriminate between diseases and criminal records :P

    After all, sometimes you need to be able to live long enough to learn everything, and Vampirism is a means to attain that...and how else to learn and document all information about a secret cult of assassins, than to join them directly? ;)

    Hi Robo
    This is a wonderful idea for a guild! I've been playing the TES games since Arena and the smaller stories behind the scenes have always been one of my favourite parts of the lore. You sort of get used to being able to see and do everything in those solo games but since joining ESO i think I've only been able to really enjoy the experience of a dungeon once in about a dozen runs! I'm in South Africa and so my hours ingame end up being a little different to most folks in the US but I'd still love to join your guild. My main is a Redguard Stamblade around 280 cp and my id is @Almyria. Hope to hear from you soon!

    This is exactly the kind of guild I was looking for! I am new to ESO but a longtime TES fan, since Daggerfall I would say, though Morrowind was my true love growing up!

    If you don't mind a newbie like myself I would love to join. :blush:

    Hi,

    In game name is @Jazdia. I'm primarily on the EU server, but I've started a char on the NA server so I can stop and enjoy the game a bit more without all the rush of my 'primary' server.

    If you think I'll fit, please invite me.
