Structure of the guild and leadership:
After 7 years of playing GW together we feel that it's best to play this fantastic game in a laid back way.
This means you decide what you want to do. You can organise guild activities using the infrastructure of the guild if you want to do something together with the others. In the past this was done by the guild officers. In the future we think that everybody would profit from a more member driven organisation.
Guild officers and leaders will try to provide for a virtual home for you. The rest is up to you. If you like to participate in activities, are not afraid to join the chat on our forum or TS and would like to be part of a nice community that likes to play GW2 together in a relaxed way,
if you feel that's exactly the way how you want to play Guild Wars, we would like to invite you to join us
You want to become a member in our Guild?

We started in January 2006 as a guild regrouping real life friends and people we met before in the game - just a couple of people that liked to play & discover the game together. Step by step a lot of nice people joined us. On Alliance level the German guild "Die Schwarze Kralle" who was the first "guild of the month" at the end of 2006 and later the "Ancient Circle" joined our alliance. The aim of the guild and the alliance is and always was to have fun playing without getting into serious competition inside or outside the guild or the alliance. Of course we went through some ups and downs and stand now as a group of people enjoying to play the game in a friendship-like atmosphere. Currently we seek for some more people willing to play with us, participate in the guilds or the alliances activities, join us on TS, chat and discuss things with us on our forum and discover together GW2.
To celebrate our 3rd anniversary (wow that's already long time ago) we put up something different here.
Listen carefully to this story one of our member (Bestian Trueflight) wrote:
Not even the warmth of the blazing hearth could keep back the chill of the Shiverpeak winds as the warriors huddled together, passing around a cup of mead and joking of past exploits. Slowly, however, the chatter slowed to a halt as a wizened old man cleared his throat. Despite his small stature, he appeared to command great respect from the muscly giants surrounding him.
"Friends," He said quietly, "tonight, I have a special tale to tell you."
"Tell us about Magni again!" Roared one norn, swilling ale mid-sentence and dousing his foot-long red beard.
"Nah, Magni's an oaf," Replied another. "Tell us the story of Olaf, son of Olaf, son of Olaf. I like that one."
"Which Olaf?" came a voice from the back, and the conversation once again returned to laughter and brawling. Slowly, however, the voices quietened again, waiting on the seer's words.
"No, friends," he replied. "Tonight, I will tell you a tale of the future. I speak of the fall of Gunnar's hold; the searing of Olafstead, and the near end of our people.
Outrage swept across the crowd like a storm of voices, all loud and aggressive, shouting down the seer. One norn even went for his weapon, but was quickly subdued by three others. to level a weapon against the seer meant death.
One Norn at the front of the group growled "there'd better be some purpose to this folly, seer. The Norn are unchanging, unafraid, unbeatable."
"Indeed you are, my friend, indeed you are. But even the mighty oak cannot survive the storm. Not unless something stands between it and the gales. Great evil stirs, greater than the destroyer, more powerful than Abbadon, more malevolent than the Lich. It wakes to the south, to the the far reaches of Tyria; beneath our very feet. It will be the end of us all."
One of the younger Norn, barely 7ft tall, said in a timid voice, "what can we do? Is there nothing that can withstand that power?"
Silence set on the camp for the first time that night, each Norn trying to avoid looking at each other as they expressed a new emotion - fear.
But the seer smiled. "There is one defence, friends. The Sword. The Sword of Justice."
"A blade?" Roared one Norn, standing up and beating his shield with his knuckles. "Give it to me, Seer, I shall wield it!"
"The sword is not a weapon, Bran. It is an ideal, an order, a guild, if you will. The knights of the sword, as they call themselves; are legendary knights who travel the lands, giving up everything in the name of good. I have seen Swords lay down their lives for people they barely know; unite factions hellbent on each others' destruction; and even enter the gates of the underworld itself, all for the good of the weak and innocent. The swords are the only hope of us, the Norn and all of Tyria."
The seer stood, pulling back his hood, suddenly looking half his age, a young man again. "My name is Bestian Trueflight. I am an emissary of the Swords. I bring requests to bolster our ranks. My friends, I ask you - will you join us?"
As one, the crowd stood, raised their weapons and roared "AYE!" The sound beat even the howling shiverpeaks winds, sweeping across the valley, echoing from the tallest peak to the depths of the darkest dungeon, warming the hearts of the true and honorable, and striking fear in all who fear the light of justice.
We look forward to meet you
