I *think* my first encounter with Gaiscioch was not long after the launch of GW2 in the first human map (Queensdale). I was leveling up a new toon and ran across this large group of people in Shaemoor Garrison bowing to some dude with a blue chevron over his head. I had no idea what a commander was and what all these people were doing, and I had things to do, so I just kept moving, but I still remember it. If that was not actually Gaiscioch, because sometimes my memory is terrible, my first encounter was later in Timberline Falls. I was doing a map clear with a friend and this huge hoard of people suddenly swept through a fairly quiet area to kill the Krait Witch. My friend actually told me who you guys were, later joined himself and then invited me to join when I asked about the guild later on when we ran into another public event.

My first encounter with Gaiscioch was a few years ago in Rift, when Ember Isle first came out - early 2012. I was standing near a portal in Ember Isle, feeling a wee bit lost about where to go.  Gaiscioch was holding an event and I was amazed at how many Gaiscioch guild tags were in attendance in the open world of Rift.  They were standing near the portal being quite jovial and emoting a bit.  Made an impression on me so I started following some of their postings and information.  But as things happen, I took a break from Rift for a bit and upon my return I learned that Gaisioch took a break from Rift for a bit too.  So, I lost you all...  

My next encounter with Gaiscioch was a few years ago in ESO, when the game first came out - early 2014 .  I was standing on a beach in (somewhere), feeling a wee bit lost about where to go (again).  Guess who was there, too!  I promptly went to the Gaiscioch website and signed up.  I didn't want to loose you all again. :)

My first encounter with GSCH was in Warhammer Online.  I joined a warband that Oldroar was leading during a battle for badlands (?) event.  He was so kind and patient with everyone that I looked into the guild.  When Fog announced that GSCH was leaving Warhammer and heading to Rift, I joined with the Rift start up.  I was amazed at the huge number of people that flocked to the guild and Fog's and his elder team's ability to invite everyone in, set up the website chapter, coordinate events, and maintain peace among members!  It is a process that I'm sure required a great deal of time, energy and patience and have since seen repeated for GW2 and ESO.  It's an amazing group!

I was looking for something to do and just stumbled across Telara Saga this past spring. I was in a few of the events and felt so at home. Shortly after that, my small guild started to have some needs to do more with more. I set out to see what was available, given my peeps requests. After a few weeks, it came down to GSCH. My peeps trusted me and 90% of them signed up. We're so happy with the move. Thanks for having us be a part of all you've built here.

I played WOW for awhile and had joined a guild there. It was a bad experience. I think the guild was run by eight-year-olds. I left WOW and did nothing for awhile, then I found Rift. I started solo not wanting to join anything. Eventually, I felt that going forward if I was going to continue to play, I needed to find a guild. How I ran across Emdeen, I do not remember. She was nice enough to let me join her guild. She is one of the most selfless people I have ever spoken to, and I enjoyed every minute of being in her guild. Eventually, I did become apparent then the guild was shrinking and something needed to be done. I did some research and began reading about Gaiscioch. I loved the Irish flavor. My father was born in Ireland, I have many relatives there and have spent a lot of time there. At the same time, Emdeen said that she was considering talking to Gaiscioch. That was it for me. Two signs are more than enough for me to realize I was making the right decision. I applied on the website, followed Emdeen, because I trust her; here I am now. Happy. I want to give much more than I get, that makes me very happy, and as it happens it is also one of the pillars of the guild. I consider myself a professional, and I know this guild is managed by a professional, compassionate person of values; who attracts the like minded. This is where I would like to stay, as long as they will have me.

Thanks everyone for your answers! Really interesting reading about others experiences:)

When I started Guild Wars 2, I was looking to get more information about the game and looking on their forum, I saw a post by Fog, offering help to new players. I replied and got in contact with him. He gave me a care package, in-game, and pretty much asked him about the Guild and if I could join up at that time. Then I found out we had a chapter in ESO, which made it even better for me, as this was my main game. It has been a boon, in my life, to find this community and for that, I am eternally grateful!

Being part of a rather large community, like Gaiscioch, it can be easy to miss out on some of the action or even remain unaware of activities, events, different groups, etc.

 

Question Of The Day: Gaiscioch Edition #3

Since you are with Gaiscioch, is there aspects of this community that you did not realize were there (i.e. Social Adventures, The market place, Gaiscioch Magazine, Gaiscioch Pioneer (access to betas and pre-releases for testing purposes), etc.), until later on? How did you end up finding out? Did any of it come as a surprise?

No surprises, actually.  The website does such an amazing job of explaining the many features and benefits of being part of Gaiscioch. This website is completely above par from any other guild I've been in across the variety of games I've played - like, it's intense! :)  My only recommendation to newcomers is, like anything else in life, break it off in to smaller chunks and before you know it, you're there!

Re events, I wouldnt mind seeing some more social adventure stuff :P (Overwatch maybe *nudge nudge*)

Crowfall is my number 1 on the list, like the look of it and the ideas. Fingers crossed that it'll turn out the way they promise :P

everything else on my list is like "oh yeah, that game. I had forgotten about it" Crowfall seems to be the only one I can keep in my head for some reason therefore it's my top one :D

I have been curious about that game as well. Finger crossed as well that it turns out as good as what it seems.:)

As for Overwatch wink wink, I would participate for sure if there is an event at a time I am available. Although I do promise you I am horrible at the game itself lol, I do enjoy playing.

I know there is mention of it in Discord, off and on. Maybe advertise an event for it and put it on the calendar? We could see how much interest we can create?

Well just like me to hit post reply before I enter any information.   I first met Fog in Dark Ages of Camelot, where my favorite character was a Celtic Heroine, one of my favorites.   Both Fog and I created a story where we were long lost family.   Loved this character, did a lot of role play with her especially being guild cook, and sending burnt cookies to fellow friends.  Currently my favorite is Nona, love the little Asura race, seem little, friendly but have razor teeth.  Fits me as in real life am known to be the family cynic with a bit of dark humor.  Thank you for this question, spent a bit of time remembering my different games, and characters created in all of them.

Which of your game character resemble you the most, and why?

 

I think I most resemble my Norn warrior in GW2. He is also 50, fairly useless and doesn't get to play as much as he wants.

I like giving all of my characters a little back story or even just "this is my goodie two shoes" and "this is my self righteous fanatic" and have a bunch lined up associated with different names which I reuse in many games depending on the "class" etc. All of my characters resemble me in one way or another.

When I was younger I started off with "playing me" and the older I get the more different I veer off and play radically different things. Also class wise, I always loved being the healer or some type of Archer or best - a combination of the two. But in the last 5 years I've been playing all types and discovered that I actually like all of it, heals, DPS, tank etc but my fav always end up to be gimpy hybrids lol.

 

ANYWAY (sorry I'm sitting at work, I tend to start ranting ^^)

The character I most identify with and is the most lieky me would be my first p&p character that I've ever created. I was 13 and she started out as goodie two shoes but got a revamp when I was 18 and turned into something else :)

 

Ilana Shar - started off as a hybrid archer/healer with a close connection to nature (can influence animals)

As the adventure moved progressed she got her left arm cut off. When that happened I was close to tears I'm playing a master archer ffs. She's useless now :( (all our characters were veteran level at this point and well established with their abilities/skill sets)

But after my initial downie feeling I got really pissed PFF and was like right. I ain't gonna lie down and take this.

That was the moment when my goodie two shoes started to get what some people may call corrupted and turned to the "shadow" (in the story we were playing it was a light vs dark theme happening, our characters got caught by the evils and tortured and broken and turned into "shadow walkers". Still on the side of good but walking a narrow line between light and dark)

I created new abilities which I had to level up and master. In this game there was no such thing called magic (there was magic but my bro didn't want to use the word duh).

So there was affiliation with the elements. Fire, water, air, nature and mind. People can only master one but may has a weaker secondary one.

Ilana primarily was mind followed by nature. Mind was considered dangerous as people could go crazy. 

That is where she drew her healing powers from, but she twisted in. She could no longer use her bow, so her mind needed to become her weapon and oh boy, it did. I created the ability to suck the " life force" out of people and kill them that way. By doing that a dort if green plasma would leave their body which ilana either would breathe in yo heal and replenish herself or to create shields or strangle people to death etc.

And also a "mind shriek" that would leave people out of action. 

Among other things. So our characters were sent into exile for 8years to recover from the torture and in that time I leveld my abilities. Ilana would use her affinity with nature to call animals to her to practise her new four d abilities. Namely squirrels, and "squirrel sucking" became a bit of a inside gag.

 

Many characters in the game didn't really trust her and would say "the shadow dwells deep" and were worried that she might become one of the evils eventually. Which she never did of course, she did serve the light council but she became scrupulous. She would do what was necessary to win the war and dropped a lot of her goodie two shoeness. I love her, because she became a incrediy gray character that was misunderstood and mistrusted by most and yet incredibly capable and good at her core. <- which is very much me. Ilana "grew up" as I did and it was a fun ride.

I wrote "Ilana's Tale" for another guild a few years back. I started rewriting it beginning of this year as.my English has gotten much better by now and I'd like to flesh it out a bit more :)

 

But since then I've made many characters, all of which I thoroghly enjoy but Ilana will always be my babie and my favorite of them all :)

 

PS: there will be a few typos, I'm fat fingerig on my phone and can't be bothered correcting stuffs :P
