The name of this one's guild is Magicka. It has a long story, one which intertwines with this khajiit's own, but to keep it short, Kha'jiri came from a distant land, quite different from Tamriel. There he studied the natural magicks, but once he came to Tamriel he found an entirely new way of viewing that which in Tamriel is called magicka. In time, having studied with many Tamrielic scholars, he came to a new appreciation of the workings of magicka, and it is in that vein that the guild is so named.
Magicka was formed late in the history of Nirn (relatively), but early in the lifecycle of the Aldmeri Dominion and the other alliances. [Magicka was one of the first Aldmeri Dominion guilds created in the beta. The old leader did not recreate the guild upon The Elder Scrolls Online's full release, and so @Marginis rebuilt it from the ground up as a roleplaying guild.]
Magicka is based in the Aldmeri Dominion, but magicka flows through every race in every alliance - warrior, mage, and rogue alike - so like the mages guild and the fighters guild, Magicka takes in members from all across Tamriel, from the nords of Skyrim to the redguards of Hammerfell.
During Kha'jiri's travels, he noticed that Auridon and the other lands that fall under Dominion protection are where the magicka flows strongest. In the lands of high elves, wood elves, and khajiit, one can even see magic being practiced in the streets commonly, although like this one said, the essence flows through every race everywhere on the continent.
Magicka currently has over one hundred members. The number is always moving, and this one's guild is growing fast all the time!
[Having prior experience with guilds, the guildmaster had previously decided not to place to much emphasis on any external site to base interactions. The immersion is often strongest when all communication is done in-game, plus it makes activity less of a requirement, so members can simply enjoy being in the guild. We do though have a teamspeak now, and our rapid expansion may have us getting a website sooner or later. Never rule anything out.]
The one has found Magicka to be most active in the evening hours. Of course this is a relative term with the variety of members Magicka has. While to some this may be the hours just before they go to sleep, to others it is the morning and they may be just making their guar egg breakfast. Magicka even has a few members that inhabit Tamriel around the clock.
[Magicka is on the North America (NA) server, and most of our members live in North America. All the same, Magicka counts among it's composition many different people, who live anywhere from Russia to Australia.]
Magicka is like many other guilds. We go and help the locals, do quests, drink in the taverns, stop for some music, fight a daedric prince, take a run into Cyrodil, come back and train our skills crafting the best armor this side of Tamriel. [The main difference is that we do all of this while roleplaying. Almost everything we do is in character, adding for many to the enjoyment and immersion The Elder Scrolls Online offers. Whether in guild chat, at the local tavern, or treasure hunting down the beach, you are no longer N00bPwn3R420, you are Gar-Tei! Famous argonian chef and adventurer! (or whomever you decide your character will be.)]
This is one of the things this one thinks makes Magicka so great, is that we have so many different members who do different things. Whether you prefer to craft, explore, quest, or war in Cyrodil, (or just laze about), you'll find someone doing the same in Magicka.
Hahah, the name yes? Magicka is normally known as a mystical essence, not so much a guild. Other than that, Magicka is just a group of those who truly appreciate Tamriel and being in it. [The love of the universe Zenimax has taken on in TESO is the reason we RP, and the reason we play the game.]
As of right now Magicka is not actively pursuing any more alliances. Kha'jiri is always open to options, and has looked into a few prospects, but for now this one thinks it is fine just to be ourselves and see where the magicka flow takes us. He should mention though that Magicka is part of The Aldmeri Council, a guild of different representatives of Aldmeri based guilds all across the Dominion, set up for the betterment of those guilds, and to ease trade and alliances between them. The Aldmeri Council has been quite influential in the early development of Magicka, especially with helping find some of those early members.
Magicka's members come up with events all the time. Gar-Tei (Kha'jiri thinks he mentioned him earlier) is an actual member of Magicka, and is currently looking forward to playing host to a cooking class. Kha'jiri does not know entirely what this will entail - he simply hopes for some Bosmer cuisine to be brought back afterward. But this one's favorite event is something he calls Kha'jiri's Storytime. Members of the guild meet up in a location (those who don't just get to listen in), and listen to Kha'jiri tell a tale from his past, or retell the origins of the guild. After that, other guildmembers get to tell their own stories, whether it is how they came to Tamriel or some other experience they had. It may not have that same sense of adventure as slaying mudcrabs over and over again for rawhide, but Kha'jiri and a good number of Magicka members enjoy it just the same.
Tamriel holds many good memories, but the one Kha'jiri would pick would be when Magicka just started taking off. At first there were only two members, and for a few days this is how it stayed. But then more and more came flooding in, and hasn't stopped yet! These are exciting times, with many firsts, still.
Hm... Kha'jiri does not follow any daedra, but he does know some in Magicka who do, particularly some of Magicka's dunmer. Magicka's diverse makeup does not let it follow any one deity. What we do have though is a very good knowledge of the history and lore surrounding both the daedra and divines. This is part of the guild, why we have the name Magicka!
This khajiit has found guildmembers in the bank, in the taverns, in the streets, and on the beach, all the time, just playing their instruments or swigging some ale. Perhaps they are always winding down he thinks.
- So a dark elf, a khajiit, and a priest walk into a bar (this actually happened when some guildmembers met up - you can decide the punchline).
- [What most people even in Magicka don't know is that Kha'jiri is based off an old D&D character I made.]
- [That D&D character was actually based off an Elder Scrolls character I had made (IT'S ALL A CIRCLE).]
- ["Magicka" was almost instead named "Khajiit" [the name of my guild during the beta], but instead stuck with Magicka because of better backstory potential and attractiveness to more than just khajiit characters, as well as the short but strong history early on in the game's lifecycle].
- Kha'jiri, and therefore Magicka, has much darker (and often more comedic) origins than you think. Tis a tale to behold. But you would have to ask this khajiit for the story some other time to know why (be sure to ask about Bob the sorcerer).
- Kha'jiri is terrible at counting.
If anyone wishes to join Magicka, they should contact this one [Kha'jiri or @Marginis in-game] however they wish. He is more than glad to offer more information or an invitation to join Magicka. Otherwise, you can also check out our flyer (for Magicka's forum thread and a good amount more information and screenshots, click Here).
