    What is your guild’s name? Does that name have a special history of significance?

    The Sidekick Order - Our name says it all, we are less than hardcore. Formed by members of the Psijic Order from PTS, T.S.O. is a guild for the Casual Player.


    What alliance has your guild sworn fealty to?
    Ebonheart because...

    Why did you choose that alliance?
    Because that's where the Naked Nords are!

    How many members does your guild currently have?
    100+

    What countries do your members span?
    USA and Europe... We think. We don't usually ask.

    What makes your guild unique?
    We do! Our members.

    What activities in ESO do your members enjoy doing together most?
    Outside of "Running around as Naked Nords!", logging in and playing when life allows us to.

    What does your guild focus on in-game? Do your members prefer delving dungeons together, fighting for keeps in Cyrodiil, roleplaying in the taverns, crafting and trading, or a combination?
    A little bit of everything. We are a mix of play styles so there is always someone doing something different. Working together on our Naked Nords is just one of the many things we do.

    Does your guild secretly (or not so secretly) follow a specific Daedric Prince? If so, which one?
    We like cheese a little to much but we don't worship Sheograth. Is there a Daedric Prince of Bacon? Irish Whiskey?

    After a long day of adventuring, where does your guild enjoy gathering to wind down?
    Isn't it the other way around? "After a long day, in need of winding down, where do we enjoy gathering to go adventuring?"

    Tell us five fun facts about your guild.
    Our groups. Each reflects the gathering of play styles in our guild.
    • The Naked Nords
    • The Cannon Fodder of Tamriel

    What is your guild’s name? Does that name have a special history of significance?

    Citadel - The reason for the name us unknown. The guy that started it in Warhammer Online pre-release quit after two weeks and re-rolled on the opposite faction. The initial officers also quit. A handful of us decided to keep it going. We liked the name. It is simple and conveys a sense of stability, which is certainly what is needed to keep a guild going. Ironically, we are more of an open-field, small-group skirmish PvP guild rather than a keep taking guild.

    When was your guild formed? Tell us the story of how the guild came to be.

    2008 for Warhammer Online. The initial leadership sought to form an organized PvP guild but quickly abandoned the guild. The guild is now run by those initial recruits that decided they enjoyed playing together and wanted to keep it going.

    What alliance has your guild sworn fealty to?

    Daggerfall Covenant

    Why did you choose that alliance?

    DC had acceptable, if not preferable races for all of our members.

    How many members does your guild currently have?

    About 18 on the roster; 14 active in ESO

    Does your guild have a website?

    www.citadelguild.com

    What times and days is the guild most active?

    6-11pm PST every night.

    What countries do your members span?

    US, Canada, Australia

    What activities in ESO do your members enjoy doing together most?

    Small group PvP.

    What does your guild focus on in-game? Do your members prefer delving dungeons together, fighting for keeps in Cyrodiil, roleplaying in the taverns, crafting and trading, or a combination?

    Small group PvP, mostly open-field.

    What makes your guild unique?

    We cap the guild at 20 active members and recruit only members that meet certain parameters: Small-scale, open-world/RvR PvP focus, PST evening schedule, mature (25+), use voice-comm while gaming, loyal to one guild. We only invest ourselves in one game at a time.

    Is your guild part of a larger alliance of guilds? Why did you join them?

    Nope. We prefer to do our own thing, but we do like to cooperate with other guilds/alliances in PvP, and sometimes socially.

    Does your guild ever host special events? If so, tell us about them!

    We have a couple "official" PvP nights a week, but most nights are PvP nights.

    What is your favorite or most memorable moment as a guild so far in ESO?

    Probably stealing a scroll when we initially didn't intend to, deep in EP territory and trying to make it all way back past two other enemy keeps. We eventually got zerged down by the mile gate but we escaped capture several times before that and had many kills in the process.

    Does your guild secretly (or not so secretly) follow a specific Daedric Prince? If so, which one?

    We don't follow anyone.

    After a long day of adventuring, where does your guild enjoy gathering to wind down?

    The crafting table.

    Tell us five fun facts about your guild.

    -We only have an official presence in games featuring RvR or Open-World PVP (though we may play some other games on the side from time to time)
    -Without intending to, three of our founding members ended up leading another (larger) guild in Rift. Didn't like it (the game or the large guild experience).
    -We have never changed servers in a game unless we were forced to (server merge)
    -Outside of MMOs quite a few of us are (or have been) into table-top RPGs
    -We have several Walking Dead fans

    •What is your guild’s name? Does that name have a special history of significance?
    Honour of the North. The guild Dark Honour was formed in Rift and a few of us came to be very good friends in our time there. We have played a few games since our time in Rift and always kept what we called the "Honour Theme" as pun to our original guild leader who "couldn't spell honor correctly".

    •When was your guild formed? Tell us the story of how the guild came to be.
    The ESO edition of our Honour Themed guild was formed unofficially during Beta and officially on the first day of early access.

    •What alliance has your guild sworn fealty to?
    We are an Ebonheart Pact guild.

    •Why did you choose that alliance?
    During the Beta sessions our member's preferred the zone's and quests of the Ebonheart Pact.

    •How many members does your guild currently have?
    We currently have 126 members. So we do have a guild bank and store for all of our member's to use as they wish.

    •Does your guild have a website?
    We do, the address is: www.honourofthenorth.us

    •What times and days is the guild most active?
    We have member's on most of the time, with the majority of our activity being in the evening's and weekends.

    •What countries do your members span?

    The majority of our member's are in the US, spanning from east to west coast.

    •What activities in ESO do your members enjoy doing together most?
    Questing, dungeoning and having a good time are our primary grouping activities.

    •What does your guild focus on in-game? Do your members prefer delving dungeons together, fighting for keeps in Cyrodiil, roleplaying in the taverns, crafting and trading, or a combination?
    We focus primarily on PvE content and crafting. We do enjoy the occasional roleplay nights and from time to time can be found PvPing, but our main focus is the challenge and camaraderie associated with PvE content.

    •What makes your guild unique?
    The way we play. We don't rush to get to the max level, we prefer to take our time and enjoy the game. We don't go out of our way to grief other's, we prefer going out of our way to help other's. We believe work and family always come before the game and we strive to build lasting friendship's with our member's. We don't care if we have the biggest guild, as long as we can become good friends with the member's we have, and last but definitely not least, we believe you play the game to have fun, and the best way to have fun is to play the way you want. When we run group content, we don't care if you have some off the wall build, as long as YOU are having fun and YOU can play your lass effectively... which you you probably can, we don't care what you bring. The game is here for fun and we will find ways to fun, no matter what.

    •Is your guild part of a larger alliance of guilds? Why did you join them?
    We have a guild specifically for our crafters. We know it can be very costly to expand your bank space and as a crafter, it fills fast. So we formed a "bank guild" so our dedicated crafters have an additional 500 bank slots to store mats, recipe's and traited armor as well as a place that Honour of the North crafters can assist each other to become Tamriels best crafters.

    •Does your guild ever host special events? If so, tell us about them!
    We run dungeon groups most evening's and would like to host guild dungeon races in the future. We also intend to have adventuring groups when Craiglorn content is realesed.

    •What is your favorite or most memorable moment as a guild so far in ESO?
    When @Dzargul, our guild leader, found his first Motif. It was 3 weeks after launch before he finally found one. But to his disappointment he found the Motif of the race he had chosen! To hear his reaction was priceless.

    •Does your guild secretly (or not so secretly) follow a specific Daedric Prince? If so, which one?
    We do not, we prefer killing Daedra!

    •After a long day of adventuring, where does your guild enjoy gathering to wind down?
    We usually don't make it much farther than /sitchair after our tiring adventures.

    •Tell us five fun facts about your guild..
    1. It is ALWAYS @Dzargul's fault, always, no matter what... blame him.
    2. We have the very best face-pulling healer's in all of Tamriel.
    3. We have the funniest drunken tank death's you will ever see.
    4. @Dzargul is hated by raid bosses. They enjoy killing him and only him then resetting.
    5. Despite everything, we always finds way have to a good time, laugh at our of the wall comeback victories and painfully silly failures.

    •If people are interested in joining your guild, who should they contact?
    You could contact @Dzargul, our guild leader or @Xaqshnr01 @Heatherbot @Sarif260 @Hildana @Meandering @Jayshua and @Annestel our officers. If that fails, anyone in our guild can invite you, so ask around!

    What is your guild’s name? Does that name have a special history of significance?

    The Old Timers Guild

    When was your guild formed? Tell us the story of how the guild came to be.

    The guild was originally formed in 2005, during the DDO Beta. A group of people decided to start a guild of like-minded gamers over the age of 25. The guild as a whole now has over 8,000 members in chapters across a vast number of both Featured and Active Games

    What alliance has your guild sworn fealty to?

    Aldmeri Dominion

    Why did you choose that alliance?

    We wanted to be fair to the members, so the decision was made through an open vote on our guild server. Aldmeri Dominion came out on top; however, we have members who also play in Ebonheart Pact and Daggerfall Covenant.

    How many members does your guild currently have?

    We are just shy of 700 members as of this writing.

    fsbs9hs81u0n.jpg

    Does your guild have a website?

    OldTimersGuild.com

    What times and days is the guild most active?

    With members around the globe and in all walks of life, we are active 24/7.

    What countries do your members span?

    We accept members from across the globe and have members representing across every continent. (Not sure about Antarctica :) )

    What activities in ESO do your members enjoy doing together most?

    We have a wide range of group activities, ranging from crafting get-togethers, to mild to hard-core PvP runs. Our membership enjoys every aspect of the game and we have a place for everyone.

    What does your guild focus on in-game? Do your members prefer delving dungeons together, fighting for keeps in Cyrodiil, roleplaying in the taverns, crafting and trading, or a combination?

    We do a little, or a lot, of everything. With 700 members, we always have something going on, whether it be roaming crafters gathering mats in Cyrodiil, shard runs, group crafting ventures or taking a keep. We represent every aspect of the game, even including a few role-playing Khajiit in Mumble.

    What makes your guild unique?

    We stress fun over drama. Our membership spans from young to mid-eighties and everything in-between. We are always about the players enjoyment of the game as they represent the guild across Tamriel. Many of our members have known each other for a long time and played in numerous games together; however, we are also always open to inviting new faces into the group.

    Is your guild part of a larger alliance of guilds? Why did you join them?

    We are not a part of any solid alliances; however, our members group with others in order to craft, PvE and help play a large role in our main Cyrodiil campaign.

    Does your guild ever host special events? If so, tell us about them!

    We had a Launch Day gathering with a turnout of at least two hundred members. We also have had some crafting day events, some PvP events, (training runs, shard runs, how to become involved in Cryodiil adventures, and some more intense Cyrodiil action), and we have held some member meet and greets take place while in-game and in mumble.

    What is your favorite or most memorable moment as a guild so far in ESO?

    Getting almost 500 of us smoothly into the guild structure on the first day of Early Access. With a lot of members helping out, we were able to get everyone set up in the guild and had people in Cyrodiil a few hours after the servers came up.

    Does your guild secretly (or not so secretly) follow a specific Daedric Prince? If so, which one?

    Hmmm, that would either be the Prince formerly known as Daedric, Daedric the Fresh, or ummm, yeah, you got me. :)

    After a long day of adventuring, where does your guild enjoy gathering to wind down?

    I'm not sure we every stop; however, for those quiet moments in-between, there is the Le Khajiit Noir mumble room, and for those food runs, the Arrow in the Knee AFK lounge. Mumble stays busy around the clock though.

    Tell us five fun facts about your guild.

    We stress fun over drama, so members may enjoy the game.

    We are a large community; however, each chapter is like an extended family. Some of us have known each other a long time, but our doors are always open.

    We have a number of dedicated staff that keeps our forums and chapters running smoothly and without many hiccups.

    We are very social as well as event driven and try to encourage members to become involved in as many ways as they desire.

    We are the last guild you will ever need, as we maintain a presence across the vast universe that has become online gaming.

    If people are interested in joining your guild, who should they contact?

    Full membership details is available at oldtimersguild.com and we are now actively recruiting new members.

    (*) Antique Ordinatus Populus (*)
    • What is your guild’s name? Does that name have a special history of significance?

      Antique Ordinatus Populus. In the search for a classier name (it was originally the Old Farts' Guild), one of our founding members came up with this Latin-ish name.

    • When was your guild formed? Tell us the story of how the guild came to be.

      AOP was formed on April 12 in response to a need uncovered by a thread in the official forums entitled "Are there any old farts out there?...Or am I the only one."

      There are lots of us, as it turns out, but we historically lay low in MMOs because we're made to feel like outsiders, or we just don't connect with the youngsters as well as we do with our peers.

      There are lots of 18+ guilds, and 25+, even 30+. There are lots of guilds with the words "adult" or "mature" in their description, but there are those of us who fall into a still different niche. The ones to whom even a thirty-something is a youngster because we have kids that age. The ones who are firing up our battle mages and healers for battle even as we swig down our Geratol. We tend to gravitate towards our own peer group just like everybody does. The problem was where to find our peers in a cyber world full of the younger generation.

      The need for an old folks' guild was there, and we filled it.

    • What alliance has your guild sworn fealty to?

      The Aldmeri Dominion

    • Why did you choose that alliance?

      For no real reason at all other than it's the home faction of our guild leader and she had no fellow members to consult with prior to forming the guild.

    • How many members does your guild currently have?

      60+ and growing.

    • Does your guild have a website?

      We certainly do, at http://antique-ordinatus-populus.enjin.com/ , and we encourage interested Old Farts (over 40 and on the NA server) to come check us out.

    • What times and days is the guild most active?

      We're on the NA server, so the highest concentration tends to be evenings, going by North and South American time zones. However, I've never been online, even in the middle of the night, and been alone. There are always at least a few of us online.

    • What countries do your members span?

      Mostly the United States, but we have members on at least 3 continents, and we all play and socialize together.

    • What activities in ESO do your members enjoy doing together most?

      Let's ask some of our members to answer in their own words.

      "Talking in guild chat."
      "Exploring and node hunting."
      "Trading crafting items to each other to help members level their crafting skills"
      "Questing together."
      "Well, I'm enjoy everything in this game, specially the chat sessions."
      "I specially enjoy a quiet walk around the wilderness, looking for screenshot-worthy material or hidden stuff."

    • What does your guild focus on in-game? Do your members prefer delving
      dungeons together, fighting for keeps in Cyrodiil, roleplaying in the taverns, crafting and trading, or a combination?


      A combination. We defy labels. If you must have a label, you can consider us a social guild. We enjoy anything and everything, as long as it's done with mutual respect and for the love of it.

    • What makes your guild unique?

      The thing that makes us unique is that which sets us apart. In the MMO-verse, we're considered the old fogies; the ones who don't fit in to people's conception of who a "gamer" is; the odd ducks. We're tired of feeling isolated in a cyber world that is, by its very nature, meant to be shared, and we're tired of the low class chatter and hostile attitudes that one tends to find in the General Chat of any MMO.

      We crave the companionship of our own peers for a change, and the relief of hanging out in a place where everybody gets your jokes. Where they talk about things you can relate to. Where they know who the Beatles were. Where they understand modifying your playstyle to accommodate your arthritis. Where they display the natural tolerance and courtesy that comes with being born in a time when people tended to be nicer to each other.

    • Is your guild part of a larger alliance of guilds? Why did you join them?

      No.

    • Does your guild ever host special events? If so, tell us about them!

      Of course we do. We have both impromptu and scheduled events.

      We've had a come-and-go-as-you-please event where we walked around one of the starter islands collecting resources. There was also a lot of jumping, climbing, swimming, cliff diving, and general goofing off involved, as there always is at all of our events.

      We recently had a guild-wide event in Cyrodiil so that we could all play together regardless of faction differences.

      We've had some skyshard hunting events, and we plan to have fairly regular dungeon runs.

    • What is your favorite or most memorable moment as a guild so far in ESO?

      One of our members said that "simply the formation of the guild" was pretty memorable. It's a big deal to us to have a place to go where you're assured of being surrounded by people who share so many of your interests and attitudes.

      The moment when we got big enough to get a guild bank was pretty thrilling.

      Every new member is a cause for excitement because what we all probably love the most is simply ... finding each other.

      The group adventuring is wonderful for bonding and memorable moments, perhaps all the more so when they go a little awry - such as playing follow-the-leader ... right out into the ocean for a swim ... right into a school of slaughterfish.

    • Does your guild secretly (or not so secretly) follow a specific Daedric Prince? If so, which one?

      We're not really that sort of guild.

    • After a long day of adventuring, where does your guild enjoy gathering to wind down?

      Sadly, being a cross-faction guild, it hasn't been possible for the entire guild to physically gather in one place. We have scouted a few locations that we think would make good hideouts for those with characters in the same faction, though.

    • Tell us five fun facts about your guild.
      1. We aren't all fluent in spoken English - but we don't let that stop us.
      2. Some of us have been gaming for over 30 years and remember Pong.
      3. Some of us have great-grandchildren.
      4. Our very diverse hobbies include chess, motorcycle riding, fishing, gardening, photography, sewing, jewelry making, amateur radio, reading, and cooking. So we're not dead yet!
      5. We're laid back, casual, and we don't do drama.

    • If people are interested in joining your guild, who should they contact?

      They should visit our website at http://antique-ordinatus-populus.enjin.com/ or contact @SueDNim in-game.

    What is your guild’s name? Does that name have a special history of significance?
    The Rough Trade Gaming Community. We are the premiere online organization for members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender community and their friends.

    When was your guild formed? Tell us the story of how the guild came to be.
    The guild was founded in 2004 in City Of Heroes. Since then, RTGC came to prominence in World of Warcraft (where, at our peak, we were one of the largest guilds in the world, with over five thousand players). We have had guilds in numerous games since, and currently we have a presence in Elder Scrolls Online (my personal favorite!), WoW, SWTOR, FFXIV and Wildstar.

    AK8Fobx.png

    What alliance has your guild sworn fealty to?
    We represent the Ebonheart Pact on PC/Mac.

    Why did you choose that alliance?
    We held a poll and it was the overwhelming favorite. RTGC has a history of picking the underdog, or the darker faction for its games. It’s all in the name!

    How many members does your guild currently have?
    As of the time of my typing we have 355.


    Does your guild have a website?
    http://rtgc.enjin.com

    What times and days is the guild most active?
    We are most active in the evenings and weekends (US), but we have players from all across the world, so there is always a group of players on.

    What countries do your members span?
    US, Canada, Australia, and a nice mix of Europe.

    What activities in ESO do your members enjoy doing together the most?
    We have active dungeon runs and pvp groups, as well as skyshard runs in zones and Cyrodil. Shard runs seems to be the most popular.

    What makes your guild unique?
    Since our founding, we have made it our mission to be a welcoming home for LGBT and friendly players, to have a place in-game free of prejudice and the attitudes and language that often still plagues gaming communities. We want our players to feel free to be themselves without fear of judgment.
    Is your guild part of a larger alliance of guilds? Why did you join them?
    Not currently.

    Does your guild ever host special events? If so, tell us about them!
    As mentioned above, we host pvp events, dungeon runs (instanced and public), zone bosses, cyrodil shard runs, etc.
    The meta-community of RTGC also hosts a series of Pride events across all of our represented games in June. We will be hosting an event in ESO this year as well. Our website will soon be updated with all the details (and we welcome friends and players who are not currently in our guild, or in Ebonheart, to roll a toon and get a group invite for the event).

    What is your favorite or most memorable moment as a guild so far in ESO?
    The first night of early launch, we gathered as many players as we could force to meet in Davon’s Watch for a guild photo (posted above). The excitement of all the players as we gathered after a day of playing in our new home has remained the highlight.

    Does your guild secretly (or not so secretly) follow a specific Daedric Prince? If so, which one?
    We don’t have a patron saint in ESO, but if we did, it would most certainly be Azura.

    After a long day of adventuring, where does your guild enjoy gathering to wind down?
    The Fish Stink Inn.

    BMq4Z1o.jpg

    Tell us five fun facts about your guild.
    We are the largest online community for LGBT gamers in the world.
    We currently host guilds in 5 MMOs and have unofficial groups in many other games.
    We have semi-annual meet-ups in locations across the US (currently scouting for a 2015 locale), and our members constantly organize smaller, local meet-ups in many states.
    Our Enjin and Facebook pages host a variety of topics of general interest to the gaymer community and are wonderful places to catch up on RTGC’s next moves and make new friends.
    Our leadership is all-volunteer, from guild leaders to officers to invite helpers and game escorts, and they devote thousands of hours a year to our players, all to make your gaming experience the best it can be.

    If people are interested in joining your guild, who should they contact?

    What is your guild’s name? Does that name have a special history of significance?

    The Coven - The definition of coven is a collection of individuals with similar interests or activities, and that is exactly what defines us.

    1812210.jpg

    When was your guild formed? Tell us the story of how the guild came to be.
    The guild was formed specifically for Elder Scrolls Online during the headstart period. Tamriel is expansive world, and it wasn't enough to conquer it alone. So the Coven was formed to bring like minded people together in order to forge their own destiny together.

    What alliance has your guild sworn fealty to?
    We are a proud member of the Aldmeri Dominion. Long live the Queen!

    Why did you choose that alliance?
    We chose this alliance because it is a new area of Tamriel that had until now, been relatively unexplored in the other Elder Scrolls series, and it has been a joy experiencing the new lands with my friends, and guildmates.

    How many members does your guild currently have?
    The Coven currently comprises of over 150 members, and we're always looking for others who choose to find their way here.

    Does your guild have a website?
    The Coven Website

    What times and days is the guild most active?
    We have members on at almost all times of the day. Typically you can find most of our players on daily from 4pm - 12pm mst. With an average of about 40 members on. So there is always someone on to help guide you or help you out.

    What countries do your members span?
    We have members from all over the world. We've grown to be international with members from Australia, South Africa, Europe, Canada, and elsewhere.

    What activities in ESO do your members enjoy doing together most?
    This is perhaps one of our biggest strengths and what our members seem to enjoy most. Each officer is required to schedule an event every other week. So we have official events several times per week. Some of the events we have done already: gathering crafting materials, dungeon runs, PvP nights, RP nights, Skyshard hunting, Anchor runs, and even a fishing tournament. We have some new events coming up such as a dungeon race, mammoth hunting, deer hunting, and a few other surprises coming up. And we also just enjoy sitting around and chatting, whether it be in game, or on TeamSpeak.

    What does your guild focus on in-game? Do your members prefer delving dungeons together, fighting for keeps in Cyrodiil, roleplaying in the taverns, crafting and trading, or a combination?
    Because we all come from different backgrounds, and thus have differing interests, we try to do a little bit of everything so that everyone can participate in something they enjoy doing. Our two main guidelines for the guild: We expect everyone to respect one another and get along, and we expect folks to share and do what they can to not only help themselves, but the guild and each other as well.

    What makes your guild unique?
    The biggest thing that makes The Coven unique is that we are a LGBT friendly guild, which by no means that we are LGBT exclusive. People ask why in this day in age you need a LGBT guild. Well, if you ever read zone chat for 10 minutes, you can figure out why. It's just nice to have a place with folks who can just chat and go about our day and unwind. We keep guildchat strictly PG-13 and everyone involved has found that refreshing.

    Is your guild part of a larger alliance of guilds? Why did you join them?
    Currently we are not part of a larger alliance of guilds.

    Does your guild ever host special events? If so, tell us about them!
    Again, we try to hold events a couple times a week in order to keep The Coven, involved and engaged. One of the highlights was PvP night when we took over an outpost as a guild by ourselves. It was a great accomplishment for us. We're looking forward to Craglorn and the adventure zones that we have in store for us, and we're sure to have many night there as well. Finally, our RP nights are fun. We try to be a little more engaging and come up with a quest for the RP night instead of sitting around in a "tarvern" The last RP night, found us all shipwrecked in Khenarthi's Roost where we had to gather wood to build a raft to Auridon - The wood we collected, went back into the guild bank to help the crafters, so we got to RP, and help the guild out as well. Additionally, for some of the individual competitions, we do try to award prizes to the winner.

    What is your favorite or most memorable moment as a guild so far in ESO?
    We do have an Emperor, but unfortunately, he was playing in a different campaign, so we didn't get to "crown" him. But one "fun" thing we did try to do as a group while in Cryodiil was take on the dragon at the southern gate of the imperial city, just to see if it could be done.

    Does your guild secretly (or not so secretly) follow a specific Daedric Prince? If so, which one?
    Shhh, It's a secret. Actually we have not chosen to follow a Daedric Prince at this time. Perhaps in the future.

    After a long day of adventuring, where does your guild enjoy gathering to wind down?
    We have yet to find a place to call "home" we're hoping that at some point, guild housing will be available, and that is where we will be.

    Tell us five fun facts about your guild.
    We have several Vampires and Werewolves ready to mentor new offspring
    Our crafters help each other out by crafting things for each other to deconstruct.
    The average age of the members in the guild is probably 32
    We created a guild soundtrack and playlist - created by our members: Playlist
    Oh, and we have cookies!

    If people are interested in joining your guild, who should they contact?
    Please register here and an officer will get you approved and added in game shortly after.

    What is your guild’s name? Does that name have a special history of significance?

    Vokundein, Fron!

    Vokundein is an epithet derived from the ancient Dovahzul for “Shadow Guard.” Originally a nordic clan of the Windcaller bloodline, Vokundein was founded by oath around 2E 145 with the sole resolve of eradicating the Daedric Oathbreakers from Tamriel. Now in the 579th year of the second era, Vokundein, while drawing many outside the bloodline into its fold, remains vigilant in its animus, terrible in its reckoning, devastating in its fury and galvanized in vengeance.

    When was your guild formed? Tell us the story of how the guild came to be.

    Vokundein is a chapter of the Legend-Gaming community. Vokundein was granted chapterhood, within Legend Gaming, in January of 2013. As interest was waning in Star Wars The Old Republic, Legend Gaming decided to branch out into The Elder Scrolls Online, seeking a more fruitful PvP experience for it's membership.

    What alliance has your guild sworn fealty to?

    Vokundein is a Ebonheart Pact guild.

    Why did you choose that alliance?

    We felt we had a better connection with the Ebonhart pact, for our story. We wanted to play more of a Nordic type clan.

    How many members does your guild currently have?

    Before I answer this, let me explain the answer. Legend Gaming has a strict, but fair, activity requirement for it's members. We believe, and have often been told by media and members alike, we are the most organized community they've ever seen. So the member numbers below are not just a count of names on a roster. They are a count of how many people are actually active within this guild and whom login daily, progress their characters, and participate in guild activities WEEKLY.

    Total Member: 151 (5/06/2014)
    Officers: 16
    Full members: 129
    Trial Members: 6

    Does your guild have a website?

    http://www.legend-gaming.net/vokundein/

    What times and days is your guild most active?

    Vokundein members are active every day of the week. Although events are predominantly scheduled for the EST time zone, our diverse membership is active nearly 24/7.

    What countries do your members span?

    Vokundein is a diverse community, with members hailing from around the world. Currently we have active membership representing USA, UK, Canada, Brazil, Iraq, New Zealand, Australia, Denmark, Norway, Scotland, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Portugal, and Greece.

    What activities in ESO do your members enjoy doing together the most?

    PVP:

    In this game, Vokundein has spent much of it's time in PvP. Already, we've been very active in PvP and have been focused on campaigns with a need for an organized push. We started our adventure on Goldbrand and, within 48 hours, had driven the opposition into hiding. After a week of holding all keeps, all scrolls, and the emporership; we left the campaign. We had been guesting on campaigns such as Wabbajack and Aureal's bow. We felt we were most needed on Wabbajack and made our new home there. Since our arrival there, the Ebonhart pact has vastly improved their situation and are already out progressing both DC and AD in point totals per 24 hours. Vokundein has been called, rather jokenly, the king maker guild. We are often called to campaigns to assist in giving EP an emporer in that campaign.

    Vokundein is anything but a zerg guild. Legend Gaming leadership abhores zergs and refuses to allow itself to participate in that kind of PvP. Though we have the numbers to "zerg", we seperate our PvP raids into divisions and spread them out so we aren't zerging. This helps increase our organization, strategy building, and allows our membership to work harder for their kills. This leads to better PvPers and more impressive feats.

    PVE:

    We are looking forward to Craighorn's release and are already interested in what possibilities it could bring our guild. Our guild, in previous MMOS, was always ranked among the top in raiding (World wide). We intend to continue that trend here in The Elder Scrolls Online.

    Legend Gaming splits it's raiding department up into "progressive" and "non-progressive" raiders. This ensures Legend Gaming's goals of progression and top world rank are met while also ensuring our more casual members (non-progressives) get to experience all the raid content. Though it's important for us to achieve our goals and a top ranking, we also find it even more important to ensure our members get to experience all the content.

    Our experienced raid leaders look forward to leading Vokundein into the 12 man trials of TESO.

    RP/Lore:

    Legend-Gaming has always prided itself on organization and lore driven gaming. We feel it elevates the player's gaming experience if he/she is in an environment where they can completely engross themselves into the game and all it has to offer. What makes us unique is our equal focus on Lore, PvP, and PvE. Though we consider ourselves a guild of hardcore gamers, we still embrace the immersion which can come from being in a MMORPG world.

    We have a dedicated RP department that actively plans and executes RP driven PvE and PvP events on a weekly basis.

    What does your guild focus on in-game?

    Vokundein excels at PvP, PvE, and Roleplaying. We also have a VERY established list of crafters. Our crafting department keeps a very accurate tally of each member's research, skill progression, and contributions to the war effort. Everything is documented and accurate. We have several crafting officers whom spend the majority of their time working on keeping everything updated and accurate. This ensures Vokundein always has all their crafting bases covered.

    What makes your guild unique?

    Vokundein is unique in many ways. First and foremost, as all Legend Gaming chapters are, Vokundein equally focuses on PvP, PvE and RP. Every type of player has a home in Vokundein. Rather someone is a die hard PvPer, PvEr, crafter, or RPer; Legend Gaming guilds foster that person's interests.

    Vokundein's unique departmental organization allows the guild to be better organized. Each department has a team of leaders with the primary purposes of making Vokundein the best in the world in that particular aspect of the game. Each department's leaders have years and years of experience in that particular department's duties. As we've been running our guilds this way for close to a decade now, we believe we have perfected this system.

    Is your guild part of a larger alliance of guilds?

    No. Vokundein has no official allies. Though many guilds have asked for alliances, we felt the RvR aspect of TESO simply did not lend itself to formal alliances. In Daoc, alliances worked due to alliance chat and a in game alliance system. This game did not have that mechanic so we chose not to worry about it.

    Vokundein does work closely with many Ebonhart Pact guilds. We have worked closely with The Keepers and Great House Hlaalu and continue to do so on a weekly basis.

    Does your guild ever host special events?

    Vokundein hosts weekly PvP, PvE, and Roleplaying events. We have some kind of event every night.


    What is your favorite or most memorable moment as a guild so far in ESO?

    This is a hard question to answer. Every time I think this moment will be our best; something happens at the next PvP raid that topples it. But most of our members still talk about the Last Stand of Vokundein at Bleakers. We submitted a story of this to your "stories from the battlefield". Several of these last stand moments have occured since release and they always seem to occur at Bleakers.


    Does your guild follow a specific Daedric Prince?

    No we don't like them. It's easier to just kill them. They are all oathbreakers.

    After a long day of adventuring, where does your guild enjoy gathering to wind down?

    We PvP to wind down. We make emperors, we take scrolls, we paint the map red. That's how we de-stress.


    Tell us five fun facts about your guild.

    1 - Allastair, one of our officers, is a 7'0 foot tall giant from Brazil. He's also one of our best PvPers. He served as our head of discipline for awhile and often intimidated the new recruits, during interviews.

    2 - Nearly an entire police precinct calls Vokundein home. Cops are good PvPers.

    3 - Vokundein is home to one of the ugliest creatures on earth; Hufa. One of the ugliest characters I've ever seen someone create in a MMO. No he's not an Orc.

    4 - TESOCast, one of the most popular podcasts for TESO, is run by Vokundein members (Road and Allastair)

    5 - Vokundein is home to the "spear head" group which consisted of several of the fastest levelers in TESO - (Remh, Drahl, and Zintair) whose primary goal was to reach max level by the end of early access.


    If people are interested in joining your guild, who should they contact?

    Please understand Vokundein is currently at hard cap. We will accept all applications but gaining entry into our guild is EXTREMELY difficult. Currently we are only accepting potential members whom are referrals of existing members or family members of existing members. We will, occasionally, also accept applicants with extensive PvE/PvP experience and an excellent application.

    If interested, go to http://www.legend-gaming.net/vokundein/join.php

    In order to join Vokundein you must meet these requirements:

    --> You must be prepared to use TeamSpeak and be logged into the Legend Gaming TS server whenever you are logged into the game (Post release only).

    What is your guild’s name? Does that name have a special history of significance?

    Scumdogs of Skyrim. Our guild is dedicated to the greatest band in the galaxy, GWAR! So we took our name from them to honor their greatness.

    When was your guild formed? Tell us the story of how the guild came to be.

    Our guild was formed during early release. I wanted to gather all the scumdogs in ESO who wanna show their love for such a legendary band. I figured there wouldn't be one formed so i made it. Originally it started as just a guild dedicated to GWAR, it wasn't until I became a werewolf that i decided to to turn the guild towards that.

    What alliance has your guild sworn fealty to?


    Ebonheart Pact

    Mainly PvP or running dungeons together.

    What makes your guild unique?

    Our guild is unique because we are the only guild dedicated to GWAR in all of ESO!

    Is your guild part of a larger alliance of guilds? Why did you join them?

    The whole guild follows Oderus Urungus! Some choose to follow Hircine as a close second as well.

    What is your guild’s name? Does that name have a special history of significance?
    The <Duchy of Wessex>. Its more a Community than a Guild.
    The guild name itself is based on the historical medieval kingdom's found in today's United Kingdoms. While most of our active members are from the United States (though we span the globe), they are very big historical fan's. Since we use the feudal management system for the guild, it just makes sense to use such a name.

    When was your guild formed? Tell us the story of how the guild came to be.
    It all started back in 1999... And is clouded in mystery to most. One the great things about our guild is there is literally hundreds upon hundreds of hours of reading to be done on our origins. Our guild is very strong with recording (through a herald usually) all major events. Grants of Land, Grants of Arms, Knighthood, Major Promotion, New Games we are Playing... Everything is recorded with detail so future generations of gamers can dig through our archives and find out the stories (and most are indeed quite interesting)! We have a very in-depth community specific lore section. Our lore is so detailed, that in some games, the religion system has even been adopted by that specific games community, and even had developers integrate it in some of their games.
    Did you know that we once lead the conquest of over 90% of a pvp map in another game? Check out our history for a first hand account of that era, and possibly other facts and legends.

    What alliance has your guild sworn fealty to?
    Daggerfall Covenant
    Why did you choose that alliance?
    While we were establishing our TESO team, we felt it was the alliance with the races we were most comfortable with and that would fit our guild best.
    How many members does your guild currently have?
    We have had over 2,500 actual members sign up over the years (Though probably only a portion of that are still active, in the low hundreds. It varies year by year, members return every now and then when a game catches their attention). Right now within TESO, we have over 60 actives.
    Does your guild have a website?
    www.duchyofwessex.org
    What times and days is the guild most active?
    As our Community spans the globe, we have members active in all time zones. The most active per say is evenings North American Times.
    What countries do your members span?
    We are international, every country is included in one form or another.
    What activities in ESO do your members enjoy doing together most?
    The one unifying feature of the guild is our belief in Feudalism (through practical roleplay). What we mean by this is we use our extreme organisation of feudalism, respect of titles and achievements, and use that in our day to day life. Because our members are so used to the "pecking order" (not based on individuals, it changes with time based on achievements of our members), we perform admirably in PvP. That brings us to the number one goal: Achievements. Its nothing short of that. We try to achieve what others dream of. Be it conquering most of a known world in a PvP game, being the world first to beat a raid, or any other MAJOR achievements. Our practical RP is never an excuse, but a way to describe our activities. It makes it more fantastic and awe inspiring. What would you rather hear: some guy conquered 90% of the map... or the Duke of Wessex and his mighty forces took control of the enemy holdings, one by one, appointing Knights to supervise the territories, until one day, they had conquered the whole of Cyrodill under their mighty banner! Long live Duke Manus Dei!
    What does your guild focus on in-game? Do your members prefer delving dungeons together, fighting for keeps in Cyrodiil, roleplaying in the taverns, crafting and trading, or a combination?
    Right now a lot of our members are focusing on leveling and enjoying the game. We first and foremost are gamers, and we love the games we play. Our achievements are just a natural progression in a game. We are arriving at the point in the next few weeks where our members will have all enjoyed most of the story, and will be turning their gaze towards Cyrodill "en-masse". I believe the term "oh crap" would be appropriate for the other alliances when that day comes.
    What makes your guild unique?
    Practical Roleplaying (Not to be confused with Roleplaying). This is playing the role of our character, with the achievements of our player. You won't see a level 5 sorceror claiming to be a mighty warrior that is the villain, and you as a level 50 warrior must pretend hes a hard fight. None of that. With us, you see the level 5, shrug, kill him, and walk away. If you want to claim you are a mighty knight, prove your worth with us. Prove that not only can you fight like one, you can also act like one in our events. You need to also lead a small army, and be really good at it. If you see a member of our guild with a title, you know they have proven countless times they have what it takes for that title. They really mean a LOT in our community.

    What is also really cool is how we are organised. We have our Garrison, which is a organised military force that works together and does drills together. We have our Yeomen, who are the administrators of the guild. We have our Artisans, and we even have Clergy within the Community. Basically everything there was in the medieval era. A new member can join ANY of those jobs. There is room (and need) for just about everyone.

    So not only do you have jobs with us, you also have ranks within your chosen careers, and even have social class (like paupers, villeins (serfs), gentry, nobles and clergy). It makes our "titles" system very complex, and it is very much independent of the games we play. So if you achieve something in one game, that stay's with you no matter which game you play next!

    Is your guild part of a larger alliance of guilds? Why did you join them?
    In certain games, just one guild isn't enough. That is when we can touch base with the other great guilds of the Hyperion Kingdom (which our Duke, leader of the Duchy of Wessex, is the King of). While we rarely play with most of them nowadays, we are sure it will happen again in the future.
    Does your guild ever host special events? If so, tell us about them!
    We host a lot of events. We have drills to get our Garrison (military members) to fight as one cohesive unit. We have wars, lots of those (they are why we play pvp games mainly). Our community is extremely well organised, so there is always lots of special things to do.
    What is your favorite or most memorable moment as a guild so far in ESO?
    Probably when we were all new to the game, and we decided to go to Cyrodill. As most of us are used to working together, we would often be one of those small 4-6 man squads that would face down teams of 10+ members often, and win. Usually flawlessly. Those are adrenaline pumping!
    Does your guild secretly (or not so secretly) follow a specific Daedric Prince? If so, which one?
    Our clergy will long argue that our God transcends "Daedric Princes" and all that non-sense. The God we follow has many names, and thus it is possible he is a Daedric Prince in TESO. We follow the Unconquered Sun (Called Soldeus, Sol Deus, Sol Invictus, and many other names).
    After a long day of adventuring, where does your guild enjoy gathering to wind down?

    What is your guild’s name? Does that name have a special history of significance?
    The name of our guild is Elysium Gaming and we are on the European Megaserver, as for the meaning let me explain:
    Elysium or the Elysian Fields (Ancient Greek: Ἠλύσιον πεδίον, Ēlýsion pedíon) is a conception of the afterlife that developed over time and was maintained by certain Greek religious and philosophical sects and cults. Initially separate from the realm of Hades, admission was reserved for mortals related to the gods and other heroes. Later, it expanded to include those chosen by the gods, the righteous, and the heroic, where they would remain after death, to live a blessed and happy life, and indulging in whatever employment they had enjoyed in life.

    When was your guild formed? Tell us the story of how the guild came to be.
    The guild was created after the disband of Helix guild in WoW back in 2006. Since then we have been in every major mmo release and eventually evolved in a multi-gaming community with competitive teams in mobas, fps games and of course organised mmo guilds. Here is a short video with our history:

    What alliance has your guild sworn fealty to?
    e5C2ROX.jpg

    Why did you choose that alliance?
    We had a guild meeting right before the early access of the game and we voted. 80% of the guild chose the Ebonheart Pact (I was among them) so here we are now! Of course although nobody admits it we went for EP because of some "Lusty Argonian Maid" :wink:

    How many members does your guild currently have?
    70 people from which the majority are online every day (and some all day :wink: )

    Does your guild have a website?
    www.elysiumgaming.com

    What times and days is the guild most active?
    From my experiece there are always people online due to the fact that our guilds population spans throughtout Europe and even the United States of America. The most busy time though is between 19:00 and 01:00 CET.

    What countries do your members span?
    As I already mentioned above, our members come from all over Europe and some even from the USA.

    What activities in ESO do your members enjoy doing together most?
    PvP, PvE, help each other out, have fun together... Practically everything this game has to offer.

    What does your guild focus on in-game? Do your members prefer delving dungeons together, fighting for keeps in Cyrodiil, roleplaying in the taverns, crafting and trading, or a combination?
    We have all kinds of players. Some are casuals, others are really hardcore. Some people prefer PvE, others only live for PvP. Most of us play both (to help the guild progress as a whole) but mainly focus on one, because as we like to say to all new recruits "You can aquire knowledge in many trades but never master them all!"

    What makes your guild unique?
    Many things !
    First of all, we are a very organised, have "Master Crafters" who are supported by the whole guild. These crafters get items to research, to deconstruct, and they also get the mats they need. In return, everybody gets crafted gear for free, even the most expensive veteran 10 legendary items. These are of course only for personal use and not for sale ;)
    Second, we have more than 10 years experience from all kinds of MMOs, including WoW, Warhammer,Rift, SWTOR, GW2 among others.
    Third, we have a lottery system. For 1€ per month, you can participate and have the chance of winning prices like computer gear, mouses, mousepads and monthly TESO-Subscriptions.
    Also as a multi-gaming community we are supported by many sponsors including IGE (www.igegroup.gr) which is the retailer for Bethesta in Greece.

    Is your guild part of a larger alliance of guilds? Why did you join them?
    Yes, we recently joined the "Warcouncil of Ebonheart" (http://ebonheartwarcouncil.enjin.com/home) which is an Alliance of Guilds that co-operate and co-ordinate the Ebonheart Pact in [EU]Dawnbreakers Campaign!

    Does your guild ever host special events? If so, tell us about them!
    Six times a week!
    From PvP Events:XMyICQx.jpg
    That can be full raid, army style platoons or small scale (5-8 people) behind the enemy lines groups!

    Dungeon Delving events:9ua5PRw.png
    One of our groups first successful veteran Spindleclutch run when they were all V1s :smiley:

    We also have members that stream the events live (http://www.twitch.tv/elysium_gamingtv) and a youtube channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/ElysiumGamingr) where the highlights are posted on alongside some of our guildies creations like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJ7ruqnYPEU

    What is your favorite or most memorable moment as a guild so far in ESO?
    Probably our first PvP event where we trapped around 40 enemy people from the Aldmeri Dominion at the entrance of a dungeon and then killed them all even when we were outnumbered. We got more or less 40 people killed and only lost 3 or 4 members. Here's the video highlight from that stream: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1uQDS8fLGF8

    Does your guild secretly (or not so secretly) follow a specific Daedric Prince? If so, which one?
    Our members are allowed to worship only one god, daedric or not, and that's their guild master GodZeeLa :blush:

    After a long day of adventuring, where does your guild enjoy gathering to wind down?
    During the day and after a days hard work in Cyrodiil or dungeons we're always connected on Raidcall (the Program we use to communicate) and that's also where we will wind down and chill while discussing about what we did throughout the day. Also for some strange reason we also end up gathering and breaking the groups at the southern Morrowind gate's stables... Really no clue how this came to be...

    Tell us five fun facts about your guild.
    1.The core of the guild has been playing together since 2008

    2.Our guild structure is set in a way that everybody has a specific role! No man is left behind!

    3. Battle Formations! In pvp we work as one unbreakable unit. We have formations that change depending on the situation to ensure minimum loses to our group while delivering "megadeath" to our enemies!

    4. Balista Bushin no Jutsu! Whenever you see a rain of balista projectiles taking down keep walls in less than a mitute you just came across one of our PvP raids!

    5. Pie! Everyone loves Pie!

    Ah yes... this one, Ebongale, he believes that if you are looking for a band of scoundrels and raggamuffins... he may have just the company you are searching for.

    zTNRHmS.png

    What is your guild’s name? Does that name have a special history of significance?

    This one is the acting Diplomatic Emissary to the Blue Skooma Company. We started as a simple Khajiit clan, but realized soon that the moon's light was leading us through a different path. With the forming of the Dominion, this one's chief, Ri'sari, saw fit to reorganize our tribe into something more... fitting for the new order. He also opened up our clan to members from other races - both men and mer. Smooth-skins, scaled-skins, or furred-skins - all have coin that can be spent, earned, and swindled.

    As for our purpose... well, let's just say our alchemists are extremely talented in a special variety of a certain mixture that may be... less than legal in some places. Our company charter allows us to sell legal goods and services, and put on legal events. What else happens... well, this one is too preoccupied with other things to see what that might be.


    *Ebongale shrugs, and smiles sincerely*

    When was your guild formed? Tell us the story of how the guild came to be.


    Our clan goes back generations, but only recently - in the last moon's cycles - have we decided to organize ourselves in a more corporate-like structure. This allows us to play within the rules of the new Dominion. But, as this one alluded to before, rules *are* meant to be bent... and broken... and even rewritten (for the right coin, that is).

    What alliance has your guild sworn fealty to?

    Many of our members are part of the Aldmeri Dominion, but this one has heard rumblings of need for our product in the Pact or the Covenant. The finer things in life know no political affiliation, after all.

    Why did you choose that alliance?

    Being Khajiit, our heritage in Elsweyr caused more of a... default association. This one has seen, though, how the Dominion treats the shorty-elves and this one's kin. Perhaps it is better to focus less on the politics and more on the coin.

    (Unless those two notions clash. That is why this one favors diplomacy, yes?)

    How many members does your guild currently have?

    This one's last check of our roster noticed around 450 names. At any given time, it is easy to see anywhere from 30 to 70 of our members online. During our events, this one has seen over 100.

    Does your guild have a website?

    ((Yes! We actually have two: We have our guild website: http://www.blueskooma.com. We also have a resource site we're building out (http://www.blueskooma.co) that will have builds, articles, news, and other articles on it))

    What times and days is the guild most active?

    ((The company operates on EST, so most members are on from 6pm EST into the morning hours. There are a few day-time members, but most activity and events are at night))

    What countries do your members span?

    ((We have members across the globe. Most of them are based in either Europe or the US))

    What activities in ESO do your members enjoy doing together most?

    (( We hold roleplaying events every night of the week except Monday. Mondays are reserved for down-time, no-pressure leveling, and the Screenshot Contest. Our members really just enjoy getting together at various locations around the Dominion and hanging out in-character. Most, if not all, interactions are noted by the members, and we can use them to further other ongoing stories in the company.))

    What does your guild focus on in-game? Do your members prefer delving dungeons together, fighting for keeps in Cyrodiil, roleplaying in the taverns, crafting and trading, or a combination?

    (( Each department is organized into a commune - with the overarching theme of that commune pivotal to the in-game storytelling. Crafters, dungeoneers, diplomacy... chances are if someone has an interest there's a commune to allow them to play their characters how they want to. ))

    What makes your guild unique?

    ((One thing that sets the Blue Skooma Company apart from the other companies is we like to keep careful notes of what happens and share them with everyone in the company. Everyone has access to what is happening with the "Inner Circle" of the role playing and we constantly invite those who wish to be apart of it into it.

    No other guild I've seen puts emphasis on the overall-story as much as the Blue Skooma Co. Every character's story interweaves with others, forming a beautiful tapestry (documented on the forums) that shows that our characters are not alone - we are working together toward creating the best story we can. ))

    Is your guild part of a larger alliance of guilds? Why did you join them?

    As the diplomatic ambassador for The Blue Skooma Company, we are always looking for others with whom we can interact. Whether that be others looking to partake of our ... product, or those who wish to defy us - every good hero needs a villian, no?

    Does your guild ever host special events? If so, tell us about them!

    This one has been anxiously awaiting you to ask us of our events. Indeed, Blue Skooma Company hosts many of events over the course of a week. Sunday nights, we host a... semi-legal Fight Pit where fighters fight for glory while the audience place bets for coin. Admittedly however, the fights are staged, and the winners of each fight are actually decided by dice rolls behind the scenes, so fights are fair.

    Wednesdays nights are dedicated to a trial in the form of a Team Scavenger Hunt, which we use to encourage newer members to work together to win fabulous prizes, as well as to get to know each other.

    Thursday nights are trivia nights, where our Quiz Master challenges the guild to test their knowledge of Tamerial's geography, lore, and other topics.

    iaCF65G.jpg

    Our by far most popular event however is our weekly live auction. On Saturday evenings, our guild-master ((his alt, The Auctioneer)) stands in the central market hawking wares at a live Auction. All items on the block are ones that the company has acquired or crafted. The auctions tend to be a bit... chaotic... very fast paced. But, it allows our members to showcase their crafted wares to other Tamrelian citizens. The locations change, but we post the location at various places around Tamriel. If you happen to be nearby, the auctions are something to be experienced at least once - and hopefully more than that!

    What is your favorite or most memorable moment as a guild so far in ESO?

    qGddaeh.jpg

    This one remembers his first event as part of the guild's management. Our storehouses in the Vulkhel Guard docks became compromised. Quite a few of us rushed to the warehouse ((in character)) to take stock, check the inventory, and load up our wares for transport to another location. Then, we all walked from Vulkhel Guard to Skywatch, finally taking the Wayshrine to our final destination. A group of thirty or so Khajiit on foot is a sight to behold.

    Does your guild secretly (or not so secretly) follow a specific Daedric Prince? If so, which one?

    *Slams his fists on the table* We need no Daedric Prince to follow. We are all loyal to our boss, Ri'sari.

    After a long day of adventuring, where does your guild enjoy gathering to wind down?

    Our company has a warehouse near the docks in Skywatch. Our members gather to store their wares and discuss their adventures there. We also have a caravan outside of Reaper's March that we can retreat to when things get... dicey... in the cities.

    Tell us five fun facts about your guild.
    ((

    1) We value our relationships out-of-character, but we don't hesitate to create conflict in-character - so long as both parties are up for it. It's in our membership contract that people know the difference - just because someone's mad at you IC doesn't mean they hate you OOC.

    2) We have no less than 2 to 3 managers at any given event. They're the ones running the event, working the crowd, and fielding any questions that arise.

    3) Our members range in age from teenager to senior adult. They are students, professionals, actors, designers, programmers, and everything in between.

    4) We do not discourage MA-rated RP or interactions. We do ask that it's consensual, between non-minors. And, if you're not into that sort of thing - that's fine... there's plenty of other things to keep your attention and focus.

    5) The live auctions... I can't stress how cool an event it is. It was one of the things that drew me into joining - knowing that there's a guild taking the idea of selling goods into their own hands. We have a fantastic "marketing" presence and we continue to push the envelope to do events and stories that have not been done before, but that still fall within the lore of the game.

    ))

    If people are interested in joining your guild, who should they contact?

    Ah, this one knew your interest would be piqued. Simply head over to http://www.blueskooma.com and submit an application. One of our esteemed managers will then contact you with further instructions.

    What is your guild’s name? Does that name have a special history of significance?


    Chaos Theory is the name.

    There is really no special history or significance except we are a bunch of sci fi loving geeks. I also always found if i figured out how to manipulate the intricacies of Chaos Theory we could possibly take over the world. Shhhhh its a secret :)

    When was your guild formed? Tell us the story of how the guild came to be.
    We have been a guild for a few years and through out other games.


    Chaos Theory was born with a few of us close friends. We would join guilds and always found something missing or we would not exactly fit. We wanted a close knit, social friendly guild. Where we could be ourselves, say bad words, be crazy and well not offend the general public with our crazy and slightly inappropriate ways. As we started forming and slowly growing members we realized there are other, crazy and slightly insane players out there! That is our story :)

    What alliance has your guild sworn fealty to?

    We are based in Aldimeri Dominion though we do have members who play different factions as well :)

    Why did you choose that alliance?

    We tried different factions in beta and decided we liked the Aldimeri Dominion side the best. The scenery really appealed to us. We love the forest and lush landscapes.
    Vaxure one of the guild leaders said the queen is hot! He likes Kate Beckinsale. Roe our officer, she agrees lol.

    How many members does your guild currently have?

    We have 32 members.

    Does your guild have a website?

    Yes we have a website http://esoct.guildportal.com/

    What times and days is the guild most active?

    The guild tends to be most active in the evenings until late night. Between 7pm EST and say 1am ish.

    What countries do your members span?

    We have American and Canadian members so far. :)

    What activities in ESO do your members enjoy doing together most?

    We have a weekly Friday carnage we do where we go to Cyrodiil and group up and just have some fun. We may take a keep or we might feel like going through some public dungeons, hunting skyshards or just exploring.
    We also love grouping and just playing together, levelling, tackling some dungeons, doing quests or just hang out and take some pictures or dance in the middle of a city.

    What does your guild focus on in-game? Do your members prefer delving dungeons together, fighting for keeps in Cyrodiil, roleplaying in the taverns, crafting and trading, or a combination?

    We are first and foremost a friendly close knit community. We love PVE & PVP though id say our focus right now has been more PVE. We love grouping up and running world bosses and public dungeons and cant wait for the adventure zones! A lot of us are hitting veteran levels now and are really looking forward to the more challenging content.

    What makes your guild unique?

    We have two guild leaders and are on every day interacting, grouping having fun with the group. Some of us longer members who came over to Elder Scrolls have been friends for a long time, In and outside of the gaming community. Though we are a smaller group still we are very active and social and guild chat is a blast!

    Is your guild part of a larger alliance of guilds? Why did you join them?

    No.

    Does your guild ever host special events? If so, tell us about them!

    We have a monthly drawing. Last month a lucky winner won free game time. This month we are giving away a Skyrim Style Pendent.
    We also have weekly drawings for Vampire bites and currently a photo contest and other giveaways for various presents!
    This is not including the weekly events we get together in game and just do something such as PVP, Dungeons.

    What is your favorite or most memorable moment as a guild so far in ESO?

    We went to Cyrodiil on one of our Friday night carnage nights and did some PVP. We were not feeling it so we decided to go on and check out some public dungeons. We ran into a few of enemy players and won the battle and that is always fun. Ran around exploring, being silly in teamspeak. Owned a few public dungeons. Couple hours later we were all being silly and just having fun doing nothing really at the end of one of the dungeons. Picture says it all ;-).

    Guildspotlightpic2_zps89b3555c.jpg


    Does your guild secretly (or not so secretly) follow a specific Daedric Prince? If so, which one?

    We follow the prince of darkness... Ozzzzzzy!!!!

    After a long day of adventuring, where does your guild enjoy gathering to wind down?

    We usually just get silly and goofy in guild chat or teamspeak. The craziest conversations happen late at night., ;-)

    Tell us five fun facts about your guild.

    1- Guild Leaders have been online DJ's for years and have a guild radio station where we stream rock music.

    2- Founding members have known each other and been friends for over 4 years.

    3- We have a very active and silly Facebook page for our members.

    4- Though we have various ages from 18+ we are generally a older community with kids and even grand-kids.

    What is your guild’s name? Does that name have a special history of significance?

    Our community carries the name 'Deja Vu'.
    Déjà vu, from French, literally "already seen", is the phenomenon of having the strong sensation that an event or experience currently being experienced has been experienced in the past, whether it has actually happened or not.


    When was your guild formed? Tell us the story of how the guild came to be.

    On the 4th of April 2014 Aura and Rosie started the first layer of the guild's fundaments. Both of them came from a roleplaying server in the Lord of the Rings: Online and initially wanted to join a friendly community for older gamers.
    After shifting through the plethora of advertised guilds on the internet they gave up and decided to try and set up a guild themselves.

    DejaVuGGTScreenshot1.png

    What alliance has your guild sworn fealty to?

    We are member of the Aldmeri Dominion.
    But we also have members from the other Alliances.


    Why did you choose that alliance?

    Kitties and Elves, need we say more?


    How many members does your guild currently have?

    We recently invited our 50th community member and we have quite an active group of Golden Oldies playing during the length of the day *smiles*


    Does your guild have a website?

    Our home on the t'interwebs


    What times and days is the guild most active?

    That is hard to pinpoint since we have people online from early morning till late at night all days of the week. It all depends on our real-life commitments and if kids are willing to take a nap.


    What countries do your members span?

    We have members from all over Europe and even some from Australia.


    What activities in ESO do your members enjoy doing together most?

    We have recently started planning guild events. We allready had some lovely Skyshard and dungeon runs. We are working on Roleplay and PvP events to be added to our Eventcalendar in the near future.


    What does your guild focus on in-game? Do your members prefer delving dungeons together, fighting for keeps in Cyrodiil, roleplaying in the taverns, crafting and trading, or a combination?

    We love exploring Tamriel, each nook and cranny of the world is still holding alot of surprises to us.


    What makes your guild unique?

    We are very aware that we aren't unique. But we do have a very friendly 'oldies' community, a healthy mix of both men and women. And not many communities can say that their oldest members are 65 years old!


    Is your guild part of a larger alliance of guilds? Why did you join them?

    We have a guildalliance with the Femmes Fatales (ladies only guild) because we share a few members.


    Does your guild ever host special events? If so, tell us about them!

    Not yet, but who knows what the future may bring!


    What is your favorite or most memorable moment as a guild so far in ESO?

    Did you ever try to have 12 people synchronised play an instrument in ESO?
    We did:

    Does your guild secretly (or not so secretly) follow a specific Daedric Prince? If so, which one?

    We don't follow any nasty Daedric princes. We did assign Sir Cadwell as our guildmascot though!

    After a long day of adventuring, where does your guild enjoy gathering to wind down?

    Probably at home with the kids and partners on the couch, while watching some tele *grins*


    Tell us some fun facts about your guild.

    - One of our members lets his son feed his horse every evening before his son goes to bed. He now has a very fat and slow mount.

    - Layering is still giving us oldies some problems: "Hey, I can't see any of you guys, just a bunch of floating triangles!"

    - We decided to take down a portal with a guildgroup. It took some time for it to open up so we tried a few of the many emotes in ESO while waiting. Rosie had to go for a quick AFK and her char was dancing through the whole event.
    She didn't get attacked once. Must have been that flower in her hair.

    What is your guild’s name? Does that name have a special history of significance?

    Sinister Swarm

    Much like everything we do within our community, a lot of thought was put into the name before arriving at the conclusion. We’ve found that the members of our community gravitate towards the darker and more menacing races and factions of the games we play, so the Sinister prefix seemed very appropriate. As for the suffix, Swarm…a swarm is not viewed as any single entity or individual. It consists of a vast number of moving parts all working together in perfect synchronization to accomplish their goal. Later on, this ideal would further become defined as the Dark Knight approach. While we are a fearsome group in battle, we have a code of honor that we adhere to.

    When was your guild formed? Tell us the story of how the guild came to be.

    The beginnings of our community came into being in August of 1999, originally under the auspices of a different name. As the community took its first tentative steps into Everquest however, it became very clear that we would have to create the climate that we ultimately desired: organization & structure, group activities & maturity, strong leadership & camaraderie. Not only that, but we sought out players that were looking for the same thing. Individuals that were fun, respectful, mature and demonstrated positive attitudes. People that you would feel comfortable gaming with, and feel confident that they would have your back covered in all situations. This was not an easy task, and while we are definitely not for everyone, it is our selective nature that defines and strengthens us as a community.
    As the Sinister Swarm continued to evolve over the years, the community began to take a more cohesive form: to have a place for mature, respectful gamers to build friendships and have fun. Whether our members are working professionals, family men and women, or dedicated gamers, what matters to us is the player’s personality, not how “leet” their avatar is.

    What alliance has your guild sworn fealty to?

    The Sinister Swarm has chosen fealty to the Ebonheart Pact and plays on the North American server.

    Why did you choose that alliance?

    The Sinister Swarm, which gravitates more towards the darker races in any game we play, originally played Dark Elves and Trolls in Everquest. It seemed only fitting to return to our roots and join the one alliance that had Dark Elves within it.

    How many members does your guild currently have?

    Specifically, the Sinister Swarm guild within the Elder Scrolls Online game has 166 members in it. The Sinister Swarm community at large however, is comprised of many more individuals spanning many other online games.

    MrYzWD4.jpg

    Does your guild have a website?

    Yes we do. You can find the Sinister Swarm website located here: sinisterswarm.com/

    While Sinister Swarm guild is MOST active during prime-time play on the West Coast of North America (3PM PST – 12 PM PST) every day of the week, you can find plenty of our members playing on off-peak hours as well, sometimes into the wee hours of the morning.

    What countries do your members span?

    The Sinister Swarm community ranges far and wide across the entirety of the world, and that is reflected very well within the Elder Scrolls Online guild.

    What activities in ESO do your members enjoy doing together most?

    Many of our members greatly enjoy the large scale PvP in Cyrodiil but this is by no means the limit of the numerous activities that happen within the guild and the community at large. All of us are greatly enjoying 12-player Trials, and look forward to the next Craglorn area.

    What does your guild focus on in-game? Do your members prefer delving dungeons together, fighting for keeps in Cyrodiil, roleplaying in the taverns, crafting and trading, or a combination?

    While the community enjoys the PvP aspects of Cyrodil and the large amount of PvE content, the guild also has a rich and engaging culture when it comes to crafting in ESO. Members gather and farm not only on their own time but during scheduled guild events as well. Crafting materials and crafted items are shared amongst all guild members, allowing every individual to work their skills up and contribute to the guild as a whole.

    What makes your guild unique?

    We are not a fly-by-night guild and a lot of hard work has gone into the community in the past 15 years. We are still evolving to provide a fun and safe community to grow within and meet new family and friends. Our members hold themselves to a higher standard of professionalism, social interaction and camaraderie. The friendships you make within our community will last you a lifetime, no matter what game you may be playing.

    Is your guild part of a larger alliance of guilds? Why did you join them?

    The Sinister Swarm is currently not part of any alliance of guilds.

    Does your guild ever host special events? If so, tell us about them!

    Indeed we do! Every month we host a community wide Karaoke event on our Ventrilo server. Not only are all Sinister Swarm community members invited but we also encourage anyone else interested to come on by and join in the fun with us!

    What is your favorite or most memorable moment as a guild so far in ESO?

    The answer to this for us is really a continued series of events. We hold a guild meeting every week, where every member online at the time attends. We gather at one location as a large group and afterwards we all go out and participate in a guild-wide event. This event generally changes from week to week but could consist of: PvP in Cyrodil, a specific zone clear, skyshard hunting, or resource gathering.

    Does your guild secretly (or not so secretly) follow a specific Daedric Prince? If so, which one?

    If the Sinister Swarm were to place ourselves within a specific Daedric Prince’s sphere of influence it would more than likely be Jyggalag, before the other Daedric Princes cursed him.

    After a long day of adventuring, where does your guild enjoy gathering to wind down?

    The Bee and Barb Inn located in Riften (from TES V:Skyrim). See what we did there….

    Tell us five fun facts about your guild.

    1. We have community wide Karaoke nights!
    2. We regularly host real life community meet-ups. Our Comic Con meet-up in Austin, Texas on May 17th was awesome!
    3. We have a Youtube page filled with videos from all the games we play.
    4. We regularly stream on TWITCH.
    5. The Sinister Swarm community reached 15 years old in August 2014!

    When was your guild formed? Tell us the story of how the guild came to be.

    -Formed originally on World of Warcraft in all it's roleplay glory, after two years there we decided to move over to ESO and re-form as we're massive fans of the lore.

    What alliance has your guild sworn fealty to?

    -We're set up in the Ebonheart Pact yet accept all race's, as a mercinary rp guild we remain neutral in the war and go to whoever pays the most!

    Why did you choose that alliance?

    Greetings and Hallucinations!

    In the interest of not being completely boring... instead of filling out a questionnaire, let me tell you a little story about a guild called Vae Victus!

    vv.jpg

    Welcome to the realm of Vae Victus, a clan built around honor, integrity, and camaraderie. Vae Victus, meaning Woe to the Vanquished, is not just our guild name, but a battle cry often heard across Cyrodiil in the blood soaked fields we leave in our wake. This guild is the vision of two friends who sought to create a mature guild capable of accomplishing anything this game has to offer. Now with over 70 active members, Vae Victus members bring end game raiding experience in both PVE and PVP from every big name MMO dating back to Asheron's Call. We have DAOC veterans, WoW end game raiders, EVE experienced members, and some of the biggest names to take arms in Warhammer Online. We are an 18+ guild focused on both PvE and PVP with current membership totaling 72 active members, most of which are in their Veteran Ranks. Our membership varies from 18 to 79 years of age and our ventrilo server is oft wrought with laughs and jokes. Fun as we are, we become all business when we focus on an objective.

    Our officer corps, and our membership alike, span from US to the Oceanic timezones. Vae Victus essentially runs 24 hours a day and raids evenings in the US timezones. Our raids include, but are not limited to: skyshard runs, gank squads, organized keep raids, and pub dungeon xp grinds. We have officers currently in place ready to organize raids into the exciting new zone of Craglorn upon release. We fight for the Ebonheart Pact because the brotherhood of three races many would feel could never ally, formed in the frozen hells of Skyrim, to face the tyrannical invasion of powerful forces seeking only domination, not freedom, is a call we chose to rally behind.

    Vae Victus members aren’t just fighters, though; they are also skilled in many fine crafts! Our members work diligently to supply our members with the myriad of armor and weapons this game has to offer. Our warbands are only as strong as our weakest geared member, so we bolster our lines with every advantage we can as a guild. Why should you consider Vae Victus as a potential home? You can fight beside legendary members such as Richard the Lionheart, Balgus De Frey, and Uncle Steve. You can lurk in the shadows with our league of assassins in Azt, Vest, and Zero. An organized battle group has specifically designed roles integral to the success of the group as a whole. With your input, we will play to your strengths and put you in a position to succeed not only as an individual, but as just one of the many furthering the influence of Vae Victus. Be it in the fjords or mountains of Cyrodiil, facing off against the Generals of Molag Bal, or in a tavern enjoying a flagon of the finest Nord ale ever brewed... with Vae Victus you will be among comrades in arms.

    Our clan differs from many other clans in the fact that not only are we able to run the 24 hour clock, but many of our members purposely alter their playtimes to strengthen some of the lesser used time slots assisting members in finding themselves with a guild group. This guild, formed less than a year ago, already has that "older guild" feel to it, but unlike many of the longer tenured guilds there are no established cliques that keep new blood from feeling like they've entered a world they can't break into. Members of Vae Victus aren’t just a guild in the world of ESO, but a family outside of it. After a hard day’s fight in Cyrodiil, it’s not uncommon for members of Vae Victus to gather with others near them to revel in the day’s accomplishments with a cold one in hand.

    And now for the fun stuff! Little known facts about the members of Vae Victus:
    1. We have at least one member that can translate the song of the Swedish Chef
    2. It is rumored that up to three of our members may or may not have a Hello Kitty tattoo (somewhere)
    3. Our Australian members do not use the word "Crikey" despite many requests (but feel free to try and make them)
    4. Our guild master is a big fan of “pretty flowers!”
    5. And yes, we know Vae Victus is spelled Victis…but as a guild that many times acts more like a family, we prefer the spelling that includes the word “us.”

    As for our favorite moment as a guild so far? Quite honestly, in this group, it’s hard to pick just one! Every moment has the potential to be a favorite. I mean, what’s better than slaying everyone in sight, and having enough time to snap this quality shot in front of our latest conquest?

    vvpvp.jpg

    This is what the game is all about to the members of Vae Victus…making every moment memorable…or at least hilarious!

    If you're interested in getting to know more about us, contact some of us in game and we would be more than happy to chat with you. @Balgus_deFrey, @Heianab, @Zeroindulgence, @Lether, or @Azt are all more than willing to take the time to answer your questions. Let the grass run red with the blood of the fallen! Power Through Unity and Woe to the Vanquished! http://www.vaevictus.org

    Cheers!

    • What is your guild’s name? Does that name have a special history of significance?

    8YRCRtS.png

    Background:
    A group of eccentric and visionaire friends came up with the name when they dreamed of great in game achievements. They wanted to achieve all in game objectives and ultimately become the greatest Brazilian Guild ever!

    • When was your guild formed? Tell us the story of how the guild came to be.

    According to the legend, in 2010, Lunáticos came to life by the alliance
    of small clans that existed in a famous MMORPG.

    In the beginning, it was not easy. The High Council´s decisions showed divergent interests within its members. A central power was necessary. The solution came when a new leader was added to the Council. This leader was fair, creative and competent. The hierarchical organization created at that time still exists nowadays!

    The guild was finally stable with a friendly oriented style and softcore gameplay. Lunáticos became the 5th best guild in terms of in-game progression and active members in the server which we were part of. Now, we are proud to say that LUN is the biggest brazilian multi-gamer guild.

    • What alliance has your guild sworn fealty to?

    B9u3Nm7.png

    • Why did you choose that alliance?

    thV8BFz.jpg

    • How many members does your guild currently have?

    There are around 300 players.

    • Does your guild have a website?

    Of course! Everyone can learn about us at http://www.lunaticos.com.br .

    • What times and days is the guild most active?

    We play all day long, but we are the most active from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. (Eastern Time).

    • What countries do your members span?

    Portugal and Brazil, but we accept members from all over the world as long as they can speak portuguease.

    • What activities in ESO do your members enjoy doing together most?

    We have different kinds of players with vast interests. Our guild has a history of focusing on PvP, however our players enjoy any kind of content as longs as it is challenging. Obviously, the most challenging contents of the game have caught the guild´s eyes, no matter if they are Cyrodiil´s PvP or PvE. The Guild is very anxious to venture in the Adventure Zone: Craglorn!

    • What does your guild focus on in-game? Do your members prefer delving dungeons together, fighting for keeps in Cyrodiil, roleplaying in the taverns, crafting and trading, or a combination?

    As we have said before, the Guild is PvP oriented, but thanks to ESO´s structure, we won´t be focused only in PvP. Besides, our members love the game and we seek to make the most of it. The members of our guild enjoy the challenges from PvP and PvE.

    • What makes your guild unique?

    In 04 years of Lunáticos, we learned a lot about guild and community administration. Our community understands that gold, level, items, ranks and games will be gone, but friendship and fun moments are forever! That mentality is what makes us unique!

    • Is your guild part of a larger alliance of guilds? Why did you join them?

    Right now, we are focusing in PvP trainning and therefore LUN is not part of any Guild Alliance. At the moment, as a guild, we want to focus on game mechanics mastery and on the development of Cyrodiil strategies.

    We know that organization is a key element in Mass-PvP, and when it comes to other guilds, we know that it is important to have coordinated attacks and defenses with them in order to be successfull in Cyrodiil. As such, we will be looking for Guild Alliances in the future.

    • Does your guild ever host special events? If so, tell us about them!!

    We make RP events in which our members interact with each other, some of these events are horse race and playing hide and seek (the member must find an officer). The winner always gets a prize, of course! Check some screenshots and videos below:

    The recording of our promo video! It was our first big event in ESO and we were able have almost all our members online for it!

    • Does your guild secretly (or not so secretly) follow a specific Daedric Prince? If so, which one?

    The Daedric Prince of Life and Lady of Infinite energies, Meridia. She is known to be associated with living beings energies and for her hatred towards the undead. Meridia is one of the few Daedric Princes considered to be not completely evil.

    • After a long day of adventuring, where does your guild enjoy gathering to wind down?

    We do not have any specific in-game place for reunion. Our relaxation moments happens all the time as we play the game and chat in Team Speak. We love to chat and play, it makes the game even better!

    • Tell us five fun facts about your guild.

    1. When we got our first Elder Scroll and our courier-member died as a clumsy unlucky newbie.
    2. Ironically, our unlucky newbie member won a 60 days game time prize in our “Guild lottery”.
    3. We were following an Elder Scroll´s holder in Cyrodiil, when the player decided to go for a swim across the river. It was full of Slaughterfish! We all died and it gave us a hard time to get the Scroll back.
    4. We were chatting in Team Speak the other day and some members decided to talk about religion and politics as they played. It was the first creepy time we see a pacific discussion of such themes.
    5. The coolest things happens within TeamSpeak. We always listen funny comments regarding the game and life, in general, everyday!

    • What is your guild’s name? Does that name have a special history or significance?

    Our guild's name is Military Gamers, and is the same in all games we participate in. We're known globally by the monikers Military Gamers, MilitaryGamers, or MilitaryGamers.com. It's the name of our community, our accompanying non-profit organization, etc. Our name is straight and to the point and identifies who we are and what we represent.

    Our community is comprised of current and prior service US military service members and with over 2,300 members, our community serves as a broad sampling of the US armed forces in general. Combined, our members represent every branch of the US military. They hail from a variety of backgrounds and have performed in nearly every military occupational field from USN submariners and medical professionals, to USAF pilots and nuclear missile crews, to the down and dirty grunts of the USMC and USA combat arms and special operations communities, and we even count a decent number of USCG sailors among our ranks. Our members leave their real world rates and ranks at the door and participate in our community as equals, however, we have members ranging from E-1's fresh out of their basic training, to seasoned field grade officers who have climbed the career ladder to attain the rank of O-6. The one thing that ties everyone in our community together is the common bond of service to their country.

    • When was your guild formed? Tell us the story of how the guild came to be.

    The Military Gamers community was founded in 2007 and originated from a single guild in an MMO that formed around the basis of only seeking out those who've served to join out of a desire to spend our time gaming with those who we could most relate to and understand our lifestyles and mindsets. We now cover a large number of games.

    • What alliance has your guild sworn fealty to?

    We've sworn allegiance to the Ebonheart Pact as a community, and that's where our focus lies, however, our members freely participate in all three factions at their own leisure.

    • Why did you choose that alliance?

    As is always the case when preparing for a new game launch, we held a community vote and allowed our members to decide for themselves. The majority voted for EP.

    • How many members does your guild currently have?

    We've surpassed 200 members participating in our ESO branch and our numbers continue to grow with every passing day.

    • Does your guild have a website?

    Of course. You can find us at www.MilitaryGamers.com.

    • What times and days is the guild most active?

    Peak NA playing time sees the most activity, however, since we have members around the globe, some still on Active Duty who are stationed abroad, there's nearly always members on at all hours.

    • What countries do your members span?

    Our members are located in every country where you might find a US military installation, as well as those where members have chosen to continue to live abroad after their time in service was satisfied.

    • What activities in ESO do your members enjoy doing together most?

    We cater to all playstyles, both PvE and PvP. We have weekly guild events that cover every form of activity currently available in ESO.

    • What does your guild focus on in-game? Do your members prefer delving dungeons together, fighting for keeps in Cyrodiil, roleplaying in the taverns, crafting and trading, or a combination?

    All of the above, though while roleplaying isn't strongly represented, it also isn't discouraged.

    • What makes your guild unique?

    We're the premier online gaming community for those who've served in the US military and share a love of gaming. We're the largest and most successful organization currently in existence doing what we do, and we're one of the only ones, of any size, who can truly lay claim to the title of being "US military" since our inclusion of civilians is strictly controlled and limited to spouses and dependents of current members, over the age of 18, who are sponsored into our Auxiliary. Currently our Auxiliary only accounts for 1.3% of our total membership. We refuse to bend our principals to inflate our numbers and this has worked out well for us in the long run.

    • Is your guild part of a larger alliance of guilds? Why did you join them?

    We work in conjunction with a number of other communities and guilds towards common goals in a variety of games, most notably, the Silver Sun Republic, which is a role-playing focused community that has been around for over a decade and is owned and operated by one of our senior community staff members. Sometimes, being an exclusive, niche community prevents the Military Gamers community from having a large representation of players in less popular games. In these games we form alliances so that our members aren't all alone out there. The Silver Sun Republic also provides a guild to PvP with for our members who prefer to play as Daggerfall Covenant characters. However, they operate on a separate campaign from Military Gamers, to avoid any conflicts of interest.

    • Does your guild ever host special events? If so, tell us about them!

    Weekly events are the norm with more activities planned as more ESO content is released.

    • What is your favorite or most memorable moment as a guild so far in ESO?

    Our most memorable moments generally come from either guild chat or TeamSpeak 3 conversations. Our bawdy "cleverly named Argonian" conversation during a rather rowdy weekend shortly after launch definitely stands out in my own mind.

    We've participated in some pretty epic moments in ESO and a number of other games, but it's member interaction that is always the most memorable part of the experience.

    • Does your guild secretly (or not so secretly) follow a specific Daedric Prince? If so, which one?

    Hey, whatever floats your boat, right?

    • After a long day of adventuring, where does your guild enjoy gathering to wind down?

    We game together to relax in an atmosphere of support and comradery. Any time you're spending time with us, you should feel right at home whether you just want to silently observe guild chat, or actively converse on our TeamSpeak 3 server.

    • Tell us five fun facts about your guild.
    1. You won't be bothered by adolescent behavior while you enjoy your game time when you're with us. We don't allow the presence of children.*
      *Occasional immature military humor may be encountered.
    2. We don't "play Army", we've all lived it. We're here to relax. There are no "fake ranks" within our community and we don't simulate a military environment. Everything we do comes naturally.
    3. While our service and gaming brings us together, our community extends far beyond the games we play to include job placement help, assistance navigating the VA, career advice, PTSD awareness/outreach, etc.
    4. We recently founded a non-profit organization with some great plans in the works. We also plan to step up our representation at industry expos and other live events.
    5. There's nothing to lose by becoming a lifetime member; everything we do for our members is free of charge.

    • If people are interested in joining your guild, who should they contact?

    Just proceed to our website located at http://www.militarygamers.com, register an account to obtain a membership, and proceed to our ESO forum and let us know you're looking to join our guild in-game.

    What is your guild’s name?

    The Elder Sages Guild. Here’s our banner:
    TESG%20Logo%20Square.png


    Does that name have a special history of significance?

    We tried to come up with a name that was Lore Friendly and paid homage to The Elder Scrolls Game Series. Something that could exist in game. Our guild has an origin story that reaches back into the Elder Scrolls history. The original Elder Sages were a secret group similar to the Greybeards working to unite all Tamriel to defeat the Daedrae.

    When was your guild formed?


    1:44PM Central US time on August 31st 2013 during the Beta test held that weekend.

    Tell us the story of how the guild came to be.

    At the end of August 2013 some friends from the beta test started discussing a new type of guild for a new type of game, one that would welcome everyone, from solo player to long time MMO pro—a guild that would welcome all playstyles. On the date above I asked one of the ZOS moderators for permission to start a secret Facebook page so that we could gather when the ZOS forums were down between tests. We got a favorable reply and started the guild that day. One of our other Founding Members came up with the name and was our first Guild Leader. He has since retired.

    What alliance has your guild sworn fealty to?

    None, but due to the confines of the game we came up with a lore friendly work-around. Our guild was first formed in the Ebonheart Pact but like other long time guilds of Tamriel, we visit the other factions from time to time and have members from each faction whom we group with as guests.

    Why did you choose that alliance?

    We put it to a vote of our members, plus we all agreed later that it fit the lore of the guild (the Elder Sages maintain a library in Skyrim which is accessible via a mod which some of our members have developed). It was the first alliance most of us played when we first joined the beta team.

    How many members does your guild currently have?

    In game, between 40 and 50. We have few that are signed up at our guild site that are not in-game and we have a few that are in-game but not members of our site. In line with our “play any way you want” philosophy, not all of our website members are in-game members, and vice versa. Remember while we may appear small now, slow and steady wins the race and in our case, also makes for a better community.

    Does your guild have a website?


    Our website is at http://eldersages.com . We have a wide variety of discussion groups and online resources available to members, as well as an active cadre of theorycrafters, crafters, and loremasters.

    What times and days is the guild most active?

    Right now it seems to be during the evenings and throughout the weekend. Due to the fact that we are an international guild, there are members in-game at all hours of the day and night, however.

    What countries do your members span?

    The United States (East Coast, West Coast, and in-between), Canada, throughout the United Kingdom, Norway, Germany, and probably other places I haven’t mentioned. We have active members on both the NA and EU servers, where we also have a guild presence.

    What activities in ESO do your members enjoy doing together most?

    Small groups in PvE and teaming with other guilds who are more active in PvP to get our kicks in Cyrodiil. Our Skyshard Hunts have been very popular.

    What does your guild focus on in-game?

    One of our tenents is "Gaming any way you want," so it depends on the member. Remember this is an Elder Scrolls game. Some of us spend most of our time solo questing, others are already high in the Veteran ranks, still others level and quest slowly. We encourage every member to seek out his own play-style and level of in-game socialization. There are always groups ready to form for those who want them.

    We have a particularly intensive group of crafters who engage in cooperative leveling, providing de-constructable items for each other, as well as mats and sets for those who need them.

    Do your members prefer delving dungeons together, fighting for keeps in Cyrodiil, roleplaying in the taverns, crafting and trading, or a combination?


    Again, do we have to pick one? How about all of the above. We have a very active Teamspeak server; many of us like to hang out there for conversation, as well as questing/dungeon diving together, as well as all of the activities that you mentioned.

    What makes your guild unique?

    Recognizing that there are a ton of Solo players out there who may just want help to get through those group dungeons and PvP Zones but love to experience the story that is presented strictly on a single player basis.

    The emphasis, more than anything else, and that which, I think, sets us apart from other guilds, is on forming friendships with each other around our common interest in The Elder Scrolls, in all its depth and complexity. These friendships transcend playstyle, and we always encourage each other that, more than anything else,

    “Have Fun!!”

    If we have to have a motto, I guess that would be it.

    Is your guild part of a larger alliance of guilds?

    We have a few friends, and always looking for more

    Why did you join them?

    Their friendly attitude mirrors our own.

    Does your guild ever host special events?

    Yes.

    If so, tell us about them!

    We have hosted multi-guild group Skyshard hunts in Cyrodiil. We have also joined in on our friend's guided tours through Cyrodiil. What can I say some folks like to explore, others like to watch their backs and take on the fights.

    What is your favorite or most memorable moment as a guild so far in ESO?

    End of Beta Party. We also hosted an “Early Release Day” gathering in Mistral. Here’s a screenshot from that event:
    Start-of-EA2586.jpg


    Does your guild secretly (or not so secretly) follow a specific Daedric Prince?

    Well that depends on how you look at the question. I hear that once upon a time there were alliances in Tamriel that were secretly grouped with both the Aedrea and the Deadra and folks drove themselves nuts trying to figure out what it all meant. I believe we have members from several of them.

    If so, which one?

    Stendarr and Zenithar were where the most came from, but I think their were some from the likes of Sanguine thrown in there as well. And another group I dare not mention.

    After a long day of adventuring, where does your guild enjoy gathering to wind down?

    It is amazing how you can just pull up a chair almost anywhere in Tamriel. On the other hand, here’s a picture of one of our Master Sages enjoying some advanced levitating calisthenics:
    advanced-calesthenics4855.jpg


    Tell us five fun facts about your guild.


    (1) Most of our Founding members had never gotten into or even played an MMO before ESO started beta testing ESO.

    (2) Our members range in age from their 20s to their 60s. We even have one member who will hit 70 this year... We will never tell who :)

    (3) We don't have a single guild leader, we have four. We make operational decisions by consensus, and always consult the officers and members about important changes in our charter, our requirements for membership, and how best to utilize the guild bank.

    (4) The first rule we ever agreed on was "No Trolls Allowed, Even If Recently Washed." Everyone understands it and it is lore friendly to boot.

    (5) We actually started working on an early Alpha of a Skyrim mod with a ruined library for the Dragonborn to find. We planned on writing books of our exploits in ESO for him/her to find in the future, after all he/she is meant to become an Elder Sage eventually. See the thread Here for an explanation. Of course now that ESO is live, it has fallen by the wayside as we are too busy making our own stories.

    See you in Tamriel!

    If people are interested in joining your guild, who should they contact?

    Anyone, myself included, with The Elder Sages Guild or http://eldersages.com in their signature.

    What is your guild’s name? Does that name have a special history of significance?
    We are The Crimson Moon. As for significance, the guild leader chose the name when the guild was started up again in DAoC and is based upon lore he created for a video game concept he has been working on for several years.
    2nbc9c5.jpg

    When was your guild formed? Tell us the story of how the guild came to be.
    We originally started in Diablo 2 under the name “The Reaper Clan,” but were reformed in Dark Age of Camelot as The Crimson Moon. We were formed specifically to be a guild that players would be able to join and have fun on their own schedule and not have to worry about getting kicked out or getting scolded for not being able to join in on events. Because of our leadership, we have been able to succeed in several MMOs such as City of Heroes, DC Universe, Lord of the Rings Online, and most recently Star Wars: the Old Republic.

    What alliance has your guild sworn fealty to?
    We are an Ebonheart Pact guild.

    Why did you choose that alliance?
    We chose Ebonheart because we are all Vikings at heart, and because The Crimson Moon was a Midgard guild during our DAoC days.

    How many members does your guild currently have?
    We have 32 active guild members in ESO, and our membership is complemented by 50 extended guild members that play other games or keep in touch via facebook.
    2v2xr3m.jpg

    Does your guild have a website?
    Yes, we have a guild website it is located here: http://thecrimsonmoon.enjin.com/
    We also have a guild facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/TheCrimsonMoonSG/

    What times and days is the guild most active?
    We are most active on weekends -- pretty much all day -- but we do have small groups running during the weekdays as well. We are currently trying to fill in the gaps with more players, as most of our members are in the PST-CST-EST time zones and we want to provide more teaming options for the members who aren’t.

    What countries do your members span?
    Most of our members are US natives; however, we do have some Canadians and Australians in the mix, and we are always looking for potential new members.

    What activities in ESO do your members enjoy doing together most?
    Our players mostly enjoy just playing and hanging out with each other. Our Team Speak usually has a few groups talking and hanging out while doing various activities in game, such they are crafting, questing, or even just exploring. When it comes to dungeons and AvA, though, we really like to focus on the task at hand and we all enjoy those aspects of the game a great deal.

    What does your guild focus on in-game? Do your members prefer delving dungeons together, fighting for keeps in Cyrodiil, roleplaying in the taverns, crafting and trading, or a combination?
    We focus on having fun -- that is goal number one and a rule of our guild. We want to experience all the content and excel, of course, but we want to have a good time and enjoy ourselves along the way.

    What makes your guild unique?
    To be completely honest, our members are a great bunch of people from various walks of life and they make the entire experience of being in a guild even more fun. You seem to learn something new every time you log on. For example, our guild leader and a few other members are game design graduates, some members are in the technical support field, and we even have a novelist in our ranks. Everyone brings their own experience with them in-game and on Team Speak, and it really enriches our time together because we are all willing to help each other in whatever way we can.

    Is your guild part of a larger alliance of guilds? Why did you join them?

    Our main focus right now is strengthening our guild, so currently we are not aligned with any other guilds. We are used to having large membership numbers from our DAOC and COH days and want to return to those numbers again.

    Does your guild ever host special events? If so, tell us about them!

    In the past, ever since our DAOC days, we have hosted a “Winter-een-mas” event and plan on continuing to do so in the future. For those who don’t know what “Winter-een-mas” is, calling it a gamer’s holiday doesn’t do it justice. I suggest you Google it for a better explanation! We have also been known to host PvP tournaments, costume contests, and raids in other games and are looking into what we can do here in ESO to help the community and longevity of the game.

    What is your favorite or most memorable moment as a guild so far in ESO?
    Claiming our first keep in Cyrodiil was pretty awesome because it really made the members proud of our accomplishment and got them focused on leveling so we would have people to defend it.

    Does your guild secretly (or not so secretly) follow a specific Daedric Prince? If so, which one?
    Not really, we don’t have that many role players in the guild yet -- not that we would mind having them! However, our guild leader is a werewolf so we might lean towards a certain stag-headed prince.

    After a long day of adventuring, where does your guild enjoy gathering to wind down?
    Typically we all end up hanging out on Team Speak having a good time while talking and making jokes. Occasionally, a few of us will cut loose on xbox and play some multiplayer carnage.

    Tell us five fun facts about your guild.
    1. Our guild leader, on top of being a game design graduate, is also crazier than Sheogorath.
    2. The unofficial mascot of our guild is the guild leader’s daughter, who was called Smashums the Clown while her mother was pregnant with her.
    3. Our Team Speak has a lot of toilet humor going on, considering our oldest guild member is 66 and our youngest is 20.
    4. Semper Fi, our guild includes lots of Marines and other military service members, both ex- and current, along with “military brats.”
    5. Sonic Remedy… when you join the guild and meet him you will understand.

    If people are interested in joining your guild, who should they contact?
    They can go to our website, http://thecrimsonmoon.enjin.com/about or if they prefer direct communication, they can contact our guild leader Kaoru or his wife Janta at [email protected]

    What is your guild’s name?
    Does that name have a special history of significance?

    We are The Brotherhood of Sithis, our guild has been shrouded in secrecy since the beginning of this war and as followers of the Dread-Father we have been forced to live in the shadow for to long. The time has now come to spread the Word of Sithis to all corners. We will delve into the deepest chasms. travel to the furthest corners and lay waste to all that refuses the Dread-Father!
    We are not to be mistaken for the Death dealer's of the Night Mother, we get our dark blessing from the Dread-Father himself. and now our Lord Sithis demands progress in PvE Content!

    ...We serve the lord of death, Our Lord Sithis!
    Hail Sithis! Glory to the Brotherhood!


    When was your guild formed?
    Tell us the story of how the guild came to be.


    The Brotherhood was formed on the 10th April only a few days after release as i had an in-game friend flying from Norway to create the guild with me, I have planned this guild with this name ever since The Elder Scrolls Online was being released! We then recruited a little differently instead of mass inviting we got to know our members and ran some dungeons before they even joined us so we could get an inclination of their skill. Thus we are left with our Brotherhood as it is now ready and waiting for Craglorn.

    As we travel through-out Tamriel Spreading the word we come across some that are willing to submit to our Dread-Father's will. They are sworn in to our community after they have proven themselves. Our Numbers have swelled and we are now eagerly awaiting the Realm of Craglorn. Rumours have said there are powerful artefacts and non believers that needs to be dealt with here. And the Lord Sithis demand we claim it ALL in his name!

    What alliance has your guild sworn fealty to?

    We honour the Aldermeri Dominion with the presence of The one true god Sithis!

    Why did you choose that alliance?
    The new alliance of the Dominion showed great potential for our Dread-Father. while the true meaning is hidden for all but the closest servants. the Dominion holds deep untapped potential for the Brotherhood of Sithis to gain!

    How many members does your guild currently have?


    We currently have 71 Active veteran members with over 20+ veteran 10 classes, we have aimed to be ready on the day of Craglorn's release, as will our secondary group!
    We will take no prisoners!

    Does your guild have a website?

    We communicate directly with the Dread-lord at :- http://brotherhoodofsithis.enjin.com/home and we also organize ourselves through our site. And also we take the recruitment process through our site also which allows the leading team to know our potential members with our own tailored recruitment application!

    [/b]What times and days is the guild most active?[/b]

    We have no days specifically our guild is always active with at least 20/30 Online people ready and waiting for undaunted challenged, group content, Craglorn and of course contracts from the void! Sithis must drink his fill..

    [/b]What countries do your members span?[/b]

    We range from uk,Norway,Sweeden,russia and we even have some austrailians among us! Sithis demands diversity! As long as your skill and passion for The Elder Scroll's Online is equal or more than our's you are more than welcome to try your hand at applying!

    [/b]What activities in ESO do your members enjoy doing together most?[/b]

    We play in the void mostly waiting for molag bal to have his fun with your world, however the mighty development team has released Craglorn and with that...The Brotherhood has it's next contract, The mage! We have made it our goal to have everyone done with their Undaunted challenges and our current member's help those who are having trouble in achieving the specified goals.

    [/b]What does your guild focus on in-game?[/b]

    Do your members prefer delving dungeons together, fighting for keeps in Cyrodiil, roleplaying in the taverns, crafting and trading, or a combination?

    We please Sithis with the blood of our conquered bosses! Hail Sithis Glory to the Brotherhood! We aim to clear all Undaunted challenges and all PvE content!

    We are a Organised PvE guild with a few Goals in mind, To land a spot on your Trials's leader board, and most importantly to treat our guild members like our Brother's this laid back aspect of the guild help us progress with a tactical mind but most importantly we have a lot of fun doing it!

    What makes your guild unique?

    We are unique because we have put our time and love for Elder Scrolls's lore to make a guild that would meld into the lore. we have a diverse and talented playerbase. Some are fairly new to the MMO scene some are old veterans with more than 10 years of MMO experience. Now all that remains is to don the dark robe sets for our Brother's and Sister's!


    Is your guild part of a larger alliance of guilds? Why did you join them?

    Currently the Brotherhood stands alone as it must. There has been alliances earlier on in the games release, but in the end they all chose to follow our Dread-Father and join the Brotherhood!
    We believe in a high level of organisation and fairness when it comes to picking our Trial and dungeon group spot's so all with that flare will always be welcomed!
    Every player has un-tapped potential it is their choice to use it :)


    [/b]Does your guild ever host special events? If so, tell us about them![/b]

    We have Trial events on Monday's Wednesdays and Fridays at 7:00PM GMT+1 (UK time) and our secondary group led by Brother Pyroclasm. Pyro's group will fill Tuesdays Thursday's and Saturday's at the same Event times!

    We also host PvP mass invite on every Sunday where our guild leader Zayne invites everyone who is free and we take the fight to cyrodill on Auriels Bow campaign..You will never hear us coming!

    What is your favourite or most memorable moment as a guild so far in ESO?

    Having the Brotherhood flourish into what it is today, it is beyond satisfying when you see all the hard work and effort you have put into creating a guild that has progression but has such a fantastic atmosphere. The funniest moment in TESO I have had is when we were attempting Bogdan for the first time..it had taken so long to burn his health down to around 20% before i had realised we were doing the boss undaunted as our officer lord Mazark had destroyed the scroll without anyone knowing he had. A very fun fight which led to many laughs once we had downed him xD!

    [/b]Does your guild secretly (or not so secretly) follow a specific Daedric Prince? If so, which one?[/b]

    We follow no Daedric "prince" we hail from the void's darkness itself from our true lord of Tamriel! The Creator and destroyer of all Daedra and Aedra, The ONE TRUE GOD Dark Lord Sithis!

    After a long day of adventuring, where does your guild enjoy gathering to wind down?
    We have been eagerly awaiting word of potential Guild halls along with tabard changes and such however until that time we have adopted Elden Root as our home city where we Dwell and carry out the will of Sithis..

    Tell us five fun facts about your guild.
    We shall give you 6!
    We have a highly experienced ex MMO Raiding Team itching to lead us into epic PvE content! And with over 20 years of combined MMO experiences who can blame them!

    --We are offering FREE imaginary cookies made by our talented chef Maladictator...the chocolate chip ones are worthy of malag bal himself!(We have in game chef's making food out of guild bank materials)

    --We are highly social on Voice comm, and yes Sithis demands we all be slightly insane! We have all peered into the void itself ^^

    --We have couples in guild with healing and tank 2 man teams happy to group with Dps communication in any MMO is key so having people who live with each other and are skilled at playing is a bonus!

    --Most importantly we have a relaxed atmosphere obviously dedicated to the lore and PvE aspect of the game, We DO NOT have the hassle of mandatory raid times however our member's all have willingness to progress with our fellow Brothers is a must!

    --And final fact! Some members can track their MMO experience back to Everquest

    If people are interested in joining your guild, who should they contact?

    We have a open recruitment for all those who have achieved any Veteran rank for the social aspect of our guild, however our main goal is PvE content so feel free to check our website out at :-http://brotherhoodofsithis.enjin.com/home and make an application if we are the right fit for you!

    Alternatively feel free to drop me a private message in game -@Dwjelly/Zayne or contact any of the Officer's:- Lord Mazark / ThorModor / Anastrianna / PyroClasm or finally Sockhasun!



    Great job with the game so far Zenimax! Sithis is pleased!
    Hail Sithis Glory to the Brotherhood!

    What is your guild’s name? Does that name have any special history or significance?

    We are Paintbrush Ladder. The name is a reference to Oblivion and the paintbrush glitch where the physics in the game do not apply to the paintbrushes. This “glitch” allows the player to make “ladders” to get to places in the game you weren’t necessarily supposed to go. And that’s where we get our guild motto: We’ll take you to new places and never let you down. Besides who doesn’t want to climb ladders made of paintbrushes?

    When was your guild formed? Tell us the story of how your guild came to be:

    We’ve all be sworn to secrecy on the actual story of how we formed, but I can tell you that it involves three weeks of scavenging around ESO beta, snagging people from other games, and debating if tacos, soybean noodles or petty theft would be our guild theme.

    What alliance has your guild sworn fealty to?

    Ebonheart Pact.

    Why did you choose that alliance?

    Mostly because we like tacos, people with interesting personalities, and general awesomeness, but of course, we are biased. We also decided that Nords are awesome, Dunmer aren’t as snooty as the other elves and Argonians are just adorable (and they make excellent chefs). Also, after a huge debate consisting of lots of general indifference, we realized Ebonheart Pact had the best possible icon and would look good on commemorative t-shirts.

    How many members does your guild currently have?

    Currently we have around 40 players but about 90 personalities. This number will grow as we are a pretty friendly, laid back guild and are actively recruiting people by actually having fun while we do things. As people realize we are entertaining and interesting, all other guilds will be faced with the sheer boredom of their own lack of Paintbrush Ladder.

    Does your guild have a website?

    http://paintbrushladder.guildlaunch.com

    What time and days is the guild most active?

    We tend to be more active on evenings and weekends. We have people from all over the globe so there are a few odd hour players.

    What countries do your members span?

    None of us span countries, we usually encompass areas between 10 and 15 cubic feet with a radius of six to eight feet that could provoke an attack of opportunity. We know where good restaurants are in Norway, Ireland, Japan (though he prefers American food) and all over North America.

    What activities in ESO do your members enjoy doing the most?

    Having fun? Macramé? Questing? Walk off cliffs? Stuff. We all do different things until we decide to do things together. Then we talk in TeamSpeak and walk Aludari's dad through navigating dungeons. That's fun too.

    What does your guild focus on in-game? Do your members prefer delving dungeons together, fighting for keeps in Cyrodiil, roleplaying in the taverns, crafting and trading or a combination?

    We have some that are more dedicated to PVP, most of us like to quest and go through the dungeons. We also have a few achievement hounds. Also, we have a small group of people who love to go fishing in game as well because apparently they like sushi.

    What makes your guild unique?

    Two words: Lack of ability to count numbers under seven.

    Honestly, we are a guild. What makes us unique is the same thing that makes every other guild unique: Our players. Individually and as a whole we are a great bunch of people and I wouldn’t trade this for the world.

    Is your guild part of a larger alliance of guilds? Why did you join them?

    We hang out with other guilds to do PvP & PvE but it is all part of our master plan to conquer Tamriel with a combination of fun, camaraderie, physical humor, and puns. Sometimes, they envy our TeamSpeak and come to chat

    Does your guild ever host special events? If so tell us about them!

    Sirisa has a habit of collecting weird pictures of guild mates doing weird things in weird places which usually attracts a crowd. We’re thinking of starting a calendar, we’ve already got a “Miss June” and a “Miss July” for our calendar of the Naked Knights.

    What is your favorite or most memorable moment as a guild so far in ESO?

    Anytime our guild-mates get together usually produces a hurricane of puns. Perhaps the best of all was the time when we did that one thing that one time and all we heard was Chaice giggling like a loon in the background of Preda's teamspeak. She *said* he was PvPing but the rest of us produced the theory that he was being tickled by no fewer than four girl scouts while being force fed cookies.

    There was also a “picture day incident” where getting together for a guild picture happened to cause an outbreak of interpretive dance, and a Naked Knight tossed down some Fenvir’s Token making it look like someone let out a cosmic fart. After that a discussion on the many fascinating uses of olive oil broke out causing a debate on why *** chafe. It was a great day!



    Does your guild secretly (or not secretly) follow a specific Daedric Prince? If so which one?

    We sincerely and honestly believe that Daedric Princes lack the proper fashion sense, musical talent, and ability to cook we require in otherworldly entities. Even Sheogorath, a very snappy dresser, cannot actually prepare anything more complicated than boiling water without causing an explosion. Oddly, he only sings when wildly drunk. Fun Fact: Drunken Daedric Princes do surprisingly touching versions of "Ice Ice Baby". That all being said, the general rule of thumb here is don’t trust any Daedra and you’ll do just fine.


    After a long day of adventuring where does your guild enjoy gathering to wind down?

    Taco Viva, Honest Jim's Used Horse Stable. The usual places.

    Tell us five fun facts about your guild?

    1-We have an official Naked Knight. Don’t worry, he uses copious amounts of sunscreen.
    2-We have a werewolf chick surfing (naked) on a horse as our mascot.
    3-We are 116% better than hanging out by yourself. It's math. You can't deny it.
    4- No animals were harmed in the making of Paintbrush Ladder. Since then, slightly more.
    5- “And the Nails Too” was considered for the guild name but the anthropomorphic claw hammer was ruled 'too disturbing' and 'not family friendly'.

    If people are interested in joining your guild who should they contact?

    They can apply to our guild forum as linked above OR:
    They can contact me in game @PredaSirisa‌ .

    What is your guild’s name? Does that name have a special history of significance?

    "Edel Brann". The idea behind our guild is the recreation of an ancestral castle in Skyrim. A household ruled by Jarl, supported by his thanes, steward and court wizard. With townsfolk and guards doing their routine buisness. The guards are training and go to battle under guard captain's command, always ready to protect our Jarl. Townsfolk are engaged in traiding, crafting, researching and exploring the land. But after every journey people keep coming back home to relax among their friends, to celebrate a fair victory or tell a story about defeat and to teach careful listeners a lesson.
    Rulers of the hold are the nordic family Brann. Many years ago, Sigurd Brann founded the keep and rightfully ruled for a long time. Some say that the castle have earned its name Edel Brann - “Noble Fire” - thanks to the large fireplace laid out at the center of the castle. Sometimes the fire burned brighter, sometimes it faded, but never once it had been extinguished. It brought light into dark nights and gave warmth to everyone by being a grand red heart of the castle. And so it was, until it was cast in the shape of a copper flame and was placed in the central square. And so it was, until it took shape of a copper flame and was placed in the central square. But there is a different opinion according to which the origin goes from the words of castle's father-founder dignified jarl Sigurd. When preparing to battle with invaders he often encouraged his companions with these words: “Nord's heart is the living noble fire. It warms our body and soul. It warms our motherland, which gives us life!”.
    The castle is located between fertile fields and a small mountain range, near a lake, surrounded by forests. During the reign of jarl Sigurd his castle grew into the mighty fortress which could withstand any siege. Around the castle the townsmen built houses, workshops and stores. In the vicinity you can find a couple of small villages which produce provision to supply the castle and trade with travelling merchants. Also there is a lumbermill and an iron mine. Several years ago jarl Sigurd Brann had disappeared and left his son and daughter to rule the hold. Our current jarl is Walt Brann, a just lord and a brave warrior. Jarl's sister is Neere Brann, a tireless hunter and traveller. They and their faithful companions, strong-spirited inhabitants of the hold, are yet to fill the annals of Edel Brann with greatness of their deeds, courageous adventures and endless exploring.

    When was your guild formed? Tell us the story of how the guild came to be.

    The guild was founded long before the official release, back in the 15th of May, 2013, when where created the website and forum. Five founders, old acquaintance from other projects, sharing similar aim and ideas. It resulted in the vision of castle and its inhabitants, and the outline of the rules and laws was written down.

    What alliance has your guild sworn fealty to?

    Ebonheart Pact.

    Why did you choose that alliance?

    According to the roleplaying part of the guild the ruling family of the castle are nords. It was the main reason for choosing of the alliance.

    How many members does your guild currently have?

    At this moment the guild roster counts around 70 members. Our guild aims to have a warm, friendly atmosphere and that also means not a big crowd of people, but proved scope of friends.

    Yes, we have the website, TeamSpeak3 and the forum. The last is really important part of social life of the guild.

    What times and days is the guild most active?

    What countries do your members span?

    Mostly Russia, but also we have players from Germany, Israel and Great Britain.

    What activities in ESO do your members enjoy doing together most?

    First and the main - living the game. We are getting satisfaction from the whole process, we discuss it on our forum, in team speak, in guild chat etc. But we also like pvp and pve activities. While also trying to remain in the boundaries of roleplay.

    What does your guild focus on in-game? Do your members prefer delving dungeons together, fighting for keeps in Cyrodiil, roleplaying in the taverns, crafting and trading, or a combination?

    Our guild has its focus on in-game - having fun from the game. It's our goal. And it's our only goal. That's why we combine all possible activities depending on the mood of the whole guild.

    What makes your guild unique?

    Guild atmosphere, trusted members, helpful friends. All in-game communications are unselfish only. Any kind of trading within members are not allowed. But it helped our guild to develop really strong crafting sphere in short period of time. Already now anybody can order and get any piece of armor with any trait or any enchant whatever he wants in any time. Thanks to our flexible policy of free guild bank exchange there is no lack of ingredients. We always ready to share a werewolf or vampire bite with our guild friend :)
    And off course our forum where we continue to form and to shape our ideology.

    Is your guild part of a larger alliance of guilds? Why did you join them?

    No, we are a standalone guild, but we are always ready for guild diplomacy.

    Does your guild ever host special events? If so, tell us about them!

    The most intense event was our raid in Cyrodiil to collect all skyshards. It was our first experience and it started from roleplaying Jarl's speech to the guild, some kind of oath of allegiance for members. All members were standing in front of the Jarl and were listening to his speech about nobility, courage and trust. After that all this huge crowd started the invasion of Cyrodiil, full of fun and joy.

    Everything is still ahead in the future :)

    Does your guild secretly (or not so secretly) follow a specific Daedric Prince? If so, which one?

    Officially, Jarl and thanes are keeping to traditional Nord customs, but members are free to follow their own beliefs, as long as it does not interfere with others.

    After a long day of adventuring, where does your guild enjoy gathering to wind down?

    Our forum, of course! Currently, there is a lack of suitable places in game, and we are eagerly anticipating when player and guild housing will be introduced.

    Tell us five fun facts about your guild.

    We are so brutal that...
    ...we get even mudcrabs drunk!
    ...our most cool characters are of lowest level!
    ...we are not shy to be polite!
    ...boring haircut or lacking beard is a good reason enough to delete and recreate your character!
    ...a newcomer refuses from being helped in a dungeon, stating that lorewise, bosmers have nothing to do there!
    ...one does not die in Cyrodill, but takes up a horizontal observation stance!
    ...to get acquitanced with new bosmer lady, everyone asks for character screenshot, instead of player's photo!
    ...we do not flood on forums, but solve philosophical dilemmas: won't a werewolf khajiit chase himself up the tree? How long did it take for Trinimac to transform himself? Why do TES game designers so love cannibalistic practices?

    If people are interested in joining your guild, who should they contact?

    If anybody wants to join our guild, he should fill out our application on forum and answer the questions of guild members. In three days, our council will decide on the matter, and if the application is approved, there will be a trial period for one month. If the wanderer succesfully passes that period, he will become a fully fledged member of the guild.

    We have posted here before a long time ago, but it was our Diplomacy Officer Ebongale who has since left the game. Here's an updated post for your consideration!

    dlXtpS9.png

    What is your guild’s name? Does that name have a special history of significance?

    Blue Skooma. Our Roleplay often involves this potent variation of the drug.

    When was your guild formed? Tell us the story of how the guild came to be.

    Blue Skooma was formed at the release of ESO.
    zJCgBhC.jpg

    What alliance has your guild sworn fealty to?

    Aldmeri Dominion.

    Why did you choose that alliance?

    We felt the Dominion offers the best unphased Roleplay locations.

    How many members does your guild currently have?

    We remove trial members after 2 weeks and full members after 30 days of inactivity, so our numbers fluctuate. We have around 400 active members at any time.

    Does your guild have a website?

    http://www.BlueSkooma.com

    What times and days is the guild most active?

    We always have some members around, but we are most active at our scheduled event times. Usually around 10PM EST.

    What countries do your members span?

    We have many members from the US and Australia.
    khqhVXh.jpg

    What activities in ESO do your members enjoy doing together most?

    Roleplay! While we do it all, Blue Skooma exists to promote a fun Roleplaying environment.

    What does your guild focus on in-game? Do your members prefer delving dungeons together, fighting for keeps in Cyrodiil, roleplaying in the taverns, crafting and trading, or a combination?

    The focus of our guild is on Roleplay. We try to steer clear of the classic tavern roleplay as much as possible by working with each other to plan out fun stories on our forums and in-game. These stories are never scripted to the end so we can have fluid roleplay where anything could happen.
    Uc7ZyZ8.jpg

    What makes your guild unique?

    Having rival organizations under the same roof is something unique to Blue Skooma. It allows you to choose between a good-aligned and evil-aligned organization for each of your characters to play. We also believe that conflict breeds good stories. Our organizations helps provide the structure needed to keep in-character drama alive.
    0XxvosB.jpg

    Is your guild part of a larger alliance of guilds? Why did you join them?

    No.

    Does your guild ever host special events? If so, tell us about them!

    Since our foundation at launch, we have provided an event for ours members every day. Some of our most popular events are Roleplay School, Cyrodiil Skyshard hunt, weekly Screenshot Contests, Team Scavenger hunt, and our lucrative Live Auction.
    1810680.jpg

    See a current list of our upcoming events here: http://www.blueskooma.com/events

    What is your favorite or most memorable moment as a guild so far in ESO?

    We don't write background RP setting story in Blue Skooma. We roleplay it and act it out. (And sometimes the unexpected happens!)

    We recently had a story arc that revolved around some of our Khajiit characters meeting with a Clan Mother from Elsweyr to form a clan. When they were denied clanship, it forced an in-character divide. Things came to a head when the more evil characters faced off against the lawful characters of the Broken Bottle Merchants and kidnapped the Clan Mother, fleeing to Woodhearth.
    R01OOqm.jpg

    Does your guild secretly (or not so secretly) follow a specific Daedric Prince? If so, which one?

    It's rumored that the leaders of the Sugar-Claw Clan may be under the influence of the Daedric Skooma Cat: Sheggorath! However, We do our best to avoid niches for everyone's characters. Many of our member's characters follow different Aedra or Daedra.


    After a long day of adventuring, where does your guild enjoy gathering to wind down?

    While the city of Woodhearth may appear welcoming at first, those that linger will find that not everything is as it seems. With the war, there are few soldiers to protect the streets and enforce Dominion law.

    AffP9n3.jpg

    A group known as the Broken Bottle Merchants are an assortment of lawful citizens and mercenaries that have banded together to maintain order in Woodhearth during this difficult time.

    P3cPQAE.jpg

    7PcUbiz.jpg

    However, Corrupt Dominion officials have not made this easy; allowing illegal operation of the notorious Sugar-Claw Clan to conduct its Skooma trade through the port-city.

    7oEQ27n.jpg

    0HZfc9o.jpg

    Whether you seek coin, pleasure, or power - you are likely to find it in Woodhearth.

    Tell us five fun facts about your guild.
    1. We have had an event every day since the launch of ESO.
    2. We keep an archive of funny quotes from each officer meeting. Some members listen in just to see what it will be.
    3. Our logo is based on the show Breaking Bad.
    4. We have over 30 titles and awards on our website and Teamspeak.
    5. Our Roleplay history is just like a book in an Elder Scrolls game. It's is chronicled from in-character accounts from various members. How much is true?

    If people are interested in joining your guild, who should they contact?

    If you have questions about the guild, feel free to contact the following officers in-game:
    @DatBokeh, @Tryynity, @Eddiember, @ForneyWizard, @Egrasmusson, @shotmagnet, @Darkoath13, @Calomel, @Lielore, @LincDaBear, @Ice_Eye, @Anira, @Kathis, or @TheVitulus
