Cead Mile Failte!
Welcome adventurers to the month of March! This month we kick off several exciting things including the DoubleUP Charity Event, The Launch of Black Desert Social Adventure and the Launch of the Thieves Guild DLC in ESO. This newsletter will be a bit shorter than most as it's been too chaotic this month to write a long one :D.

- Project Smile - Providing emergency responders with stuffed animals to provide displaced children in New England and surrounding areas.
- Project Night Night - Providing stuffed animals to homeless children throughout the midwest.

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.
War Council (Ard Tiarna)
The War Council is comprised of members who have stepped up to lead events and activities for the family. They have proven themselves on the battlefield and have collected 25 signatures of approval from their followers. They have accepted the Mark of Servitude credo and understand that Leadership is not a position of power, it is a position of service. They have committed themselves to hosting fun and friendly events for the community at large.
The Gaiscioch Family officers act as a front line for questions and answers. These members have accepted the Mark of the Protector credo and have vowed to assist new members with familiarization and report any suspicious or unbecoming behavior to the eldership team.

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.

Guild Wars 2 News
Guild Hall Progress Report - March 2016
I've got some good news everyone! We are creeping up on the end of the chase for Gaiscioch na Rall's Guild Hall. There's just a few upgrades left before we've maxed out our guild hall.
- Guild Decorations Merchant 3 - Send Flax Seeds, Vials of Linseed Oil, Gold for Donation Credit.
- Guild Trader 5 - Ancient Wood Plans, Orichalcum Ingot, Cured Hardened Leather Square, Bolt of Gossamer.
- Synthesis Output 3 - Ley Line Sparks
- Synthesis Output 4 - Airship Oil, Pile of Auric Dust, Ley Line Sparks
We are going to be shifting focus from Rall to SORC over the course of the month and help make the push to 37 so we can get the +5 supply buff in SORC. Then a short push to 40 where we will leave SORC. My plan is to get each of the buildings upgraded and push the resource gathering to the max along with WvW buffs and Marketplace improvements. I'd like to make SORC a place where all players can gain access to some of the stuff limited to guilds.
Once we have SORC to level 40 we will begin pushing both Morrigan and Anu to 37 for the supply buff. By the time that the new mysterious Johanson WvW Patch hits I want to have all 4 of our guilds decked out and ready to take advantage of whatever is thrown at us. I want to be in a place where we can claim 3 keeps on SOR BL while being able to keep Rall as a mobile claim.

Over the past month, we've had players going out of their way to help with some of the challenges we face. We're on the cusp of launching our biggest Social Adventure to date and have seen an outpouring of support from the players to help get things going and support the community. I am so very proud of all of you and just wanted to use my closing notes to tell you how much I appreciate all your efforts. Whether it's helping progress the guild hall in Guild Wars 2, hitting the streets finding new members in ESO, organizing a game we know little to nothing about before going in face first, helping write and edit more than 200 pages of a free volunteer driven magazine, or by helping us provide stuffed animals to kids in need. Your support makes this what this community is. Incredible.
Slan Go Foill!
(Goodbye For Now)
