Gaiscioch Community Notes Issue 11, 2019

Gaiscioch

Cead Mile Failte!

Happy Birthday, Gaiscioch! It's crazy when we look back and see 18 years of laughter, memories, and really tall cliffs. We've slain a lot of creatures together over the years. From dragons to players to unkillable NPCs, we've killed em all. We've celebrated over 302,000 victories across 5 chapters and dozens of adventures.

UPDATE: We're really sorry about having to send you 2 copies of this one, but a skeleton got into the hamster wheel and poor charlie couldn't properly run. The pumpkin fell over and hit the black cat which jumped and knocked the witch off her broom. Needless to say, things got a little spooky and our perfectly handcrafted newsletter looked like something a goblin threw up.

Gaiscioch Family News

In Loving Memory of Sandi

A Legend of our family has moved on. She's on her way to the pearly gates to secure us the best plot. She'll be cooking up some goblin stew for us for sure. Nona was member #5 of our community. She joined us in Dark Age of Camelot at a point when I was simply searching to start my community. She saw me through the darkest times of my life and encouraged me to keep pushing forward. She is the only member of our history to have a significant part in all 5 chapters. She never asked for power or promotions just put it all out there to help others and ensure they're having a good time. She found out that she had stage 4 cancer last year but that didn't stop her. She kept pushing forward, spending time with her friends and family and joining us on many adventures. 

Nona really loved World of Warcraft. She tried to convince me to bring the family there for years, 15 to be exact. When World of Warcraft Classic launched I finally said ok let's give it a try and see what happens. Nona was overjoyed and even rolled an Alliance character for once. She joined us on several of our first community events and frequented the guild chat channel. As things progressed Nona faced her fate with bravery and a bit of humor. She wanted to make sure we all knew that she cherished her time with us and regretted nothing. She told me that she led a good life and was happy with the way it came to a close. I had never seen such bravery and contentment in such a dire situation before and it definitely made a mark on me.

Inside the Family

Gaiscioch Family Patreons:

Want to give a special shout-out to those members who are helping enable our community to do great things. Their financial support has allowed us to expand the tools at our disposal and maintain the community without burning a hole in my personal savings. While a still do pay a bit out of pocket their contributions have prevented me from having to work side gigs to keep us afloat and for that, I am eternally grateful. It's at a manageable level I am comfortable with. Without these Patreons, you'd be seeing a lot less of me. Thank you for keeping me in-game and focused on growing our community.

Support The Community

Gaiscioch Family Promotions:

I wanted to take a moment to say congratulations to a few members this month for accepting their next credo and stepping into a new role in our family.

Guardians (Seaimpín)

The Gaiscioch Family Guardians are an advanced part of the Veteran Members group and serve as the front line of our family. They help newer members learn about the family, our website, and our belief system. They occasionally will need to help get conversations back on track, or report misdoing's to the family elders. They act as advisors, guidance providers, and overall protectors of the family name. By this time a member should be involved in the family for more than 6 months and has been an active attendee in family events. For those who prefer fellowship over leadership this is the last stop on the family tree. Members must prove their leadership ability to progress to the Leadership ranks through the accumulation of both Valor Points (Earned through leading events.) as well as earning Tokens of Valor from lower ranked members of the family.

  » Cyrexae   » Drakin   » Ziorhon

Veteran Members (Curadh)

Veteran Members have proven their devotion to the family by participating in events and contributing to the family's success. They have been active more than 90 days and have continued to be contributing members to the family.

  » Audrys   » Hork   » Lilou   » LusanRigh   » Mazzar   » Seaturtle   » Zwidar

Official Members (Lorgaire)

Official Members have earned the rank of Lorgaire and have accepted the Mark of the Kindred credo. They have officially decided to become members of the family and start their journey to ascend the roles of the Gaiscioch Family.

Build Templates Make Their Way Into Guild Wars 2

One of the fan favorite features of the original Guild Wars game was the ability to create and share builds with friends directly in game. On October 29th Build Templates finally arrive in Guild Wars 2. Be sure to take a look at this awesome new feature at: https://www.guildwars2.com/en/news/learn-all-about-build-and-equipment-templates/

New WvW Matchup Places SOR & Tarnished Coast as Allies

In an interesting turn of events, we have been paired with Tarnished Coast once again. The last time we were paired we had a grand ol time and we can only hope the same will be true this time. What we do know is we can be more reliant on scouting reports that we could on our past matchup. Be sure to come on out Wednesdays at 6PM PT for some WvW action with Foghladha.

Sharpen those axes! In November we're heading into RUNE II. I'll be looking for a few trusty companions to help me with a Sunday morning Livestream adventure.

Kingdom Under Fire 2 Launches November 14th

Kingdom Under Fire II is a video game set in a high fantasy setting developed by Blueside which merges real-time strategy, role-playing game and massively multiplayer online game genres - the game is to have a single player, and online multiplayer mode.

We are currently, polling interest in Kingdom Under Fire 2 to see how many people will be playing it. If you are planning to give it a try, be sure to join the Adventure at: https://gsch.info/g/kuf2. For more information Watch the Trailer or visit https://gsch.info/play/kuf2

Jairone Takes the Helm in Astellia

For those of you playing Astellia, I have passed the torch to Jairone as I can't devote the time needed to successfully lead the adventure. He is our highest level and resident expert in Astellia and is very good at teaching people about the game. Join the adventure at https://gsch.info/g/aste

Conqueror's Blade Community Gets Featured This Week!

Keep your eyes on the House Spotlight as we will be featured as the Westweg Alliance. Both Gaiscioch and Tuatha are taking center stage. To go with the feature we have our own trailer! Be sure to check out our new trailer for a look at all the cool things we're up to. 

Be sure to join us Monday Nights at 6PM PT for advice and coaching from Foghladha. Territory Wars takes place Tuesdays & Saturdays at 7:30PM PT and we form up 30 minutes early so we can move to where we need to be before it begins. If we can get more people interested we can resume scheduling skirmishes with GrimReapers and KnightsTemplar to give us some Territory Wars experience. The past couple weeks attendance has been quite small for Territory Wars even with a full 88 active person house and a 34 person house. If you are new and would like to try this Free-2-Play PvX Siege Warfare game be sure to request to join "Gaiscioch" for fastest inclusion. There is no waiting on Gaiscioch, while house Tuatha has a 34 person waitlist. Join the fun!
