hrm.... Struggling to figure out how to change the character associated with the account, since only a couple of people ever met Kara. But this is Red / Spellfury.

The link Aluatris found got me looking a little more into the history of the guild. I admit right now I don't know much about our history beyond the days when I first joined but I'll provide what I found and express what changes have taken place over my own time here. Warning: I will be showing bais against some named peoples. Please do not look down on these people. Honestly I wishes all whom I've wronged or have been wronged by would return. I miss so many of them very deeply. (Warning: This post will also get sappy and in places depressing. I tried to write this all in a story but I found many places left me to sad to write, so instead I write raw memories and thoughts. If this saddens you, I am sorry and will make it up to you with candy and icecream at a later time.)

'The Fellowship of the Golden Night' was originaly founded by one Rudar Dimble.

'Fellowship of the Golden Night' was founded by Ardanroth Witchfinder.

The two appear to be linked. http://www.guildportal.com/Guild.aspx?GuildID=39052&ForumID=179480&TabID=346004&Replies=4&TopicID=2087128

The earliest date I can find for this guilds birth is roughly July 12th 2005.  I know I found the exact date before and even posted it. Tonight I am to lazy to find this information, however.

Fellowship was split into two groups (UK and USA servers) named the Dawn Watch, commanded by Shadoweaver, and the Dusk Watch, commanded by Aphonia Hope of the Lady.


I joined the Fellowship during Hope's command. She would often vanish for long stints of time and I admit I often found her to be uncomfortable around. I've had at least one conversation with her that I can recall and still enjoy, but little else. Other conversations leave me saddened..frustrated. I don't know how she commanded, for at the time I was still with the Brotherhood of Steel, but if this guild was like her I would not have joined. Thankfully it was her second in command that made this guild what I truly wanted to be a part of. Some of the older memebers will know the second in command by the name of Varro, the rest might know her by the name Tolero from the DDO forums.

Varro did live events, and got people from all over to interact in the RP scene. I came to one of those events and became hooked into RP. I thank Varro (and Deriaz) for that. The guild that grew from Varro's renown was what I feel took this guild from a mercenary/militaristic nature to a more open relaxed and friendly gathering.

Jumping some months down the road, after the Brotherhood of Steel collapesed (it's guildleader, LoB, had gone into a coma. Last year I learned that he had recovered and is doing well) I joined the Fellowship. Two months later I was an officer. Some weeks after that, Hopes constent disapearence was noticably harming the guild and Varro was being hired by Turbine and could no longer serve the Fellowship.

Varro ursurp the guild and so myself and Points where placed in command. Looking back at that first year I can only say how disapointed I was in my own leadership skills. After five years though, I hope I've done an okay job, nothing great, its got its ups and downs. I'm happy with okay and room for improvement

Huge props and respect go out to Points for taking care of me and this guild during the earlier years. Thank you. Nothing I do or could try to do will make up for the work you've done.

That first year of my leadership may be the biggest low in owr guild. More infighting and backlash then I am even able to comprehend. Those memories still sting and influence me today. 

With time and adjustment this guild shifted down into a more and more relaxed state. We don't do much in live events or regular RP quests, though I regualarly feel the want and need to do such things. Real life and my inner slott keep me from acting on such desiers. Perhaps one day I will find a way to will myself to do such events. It would be nice.

But the guild is now relaxed. People are free to Roleplay and interact has they wish, when they wish, long has no one is hurt during such interactions.
I try to only take charge of situations when the need for attority, beyond Turbins, is shown. I have found keeping a relaxed form, till such need, to be highly effective in retaining a comfortable and friendly enviroment for everyone to interact with each other, and when I say safe I mean "HOLYY CRAPPIT!! DRAGON! RUN!"  or something simular. You decide what's safe and how you want to play.

We have owr moments of excitment. It's up to you when you wish to have such things happen. I don't command you to have fun, but if you're here I expect you too.

Sigil wrote that story, linked, and it shows the key parts of our guild rules/guidelines. Follow them and you should have no beef with anyone in or out of game.  The military aspect is gone, but that doesn't change those guidelines.

((So Jaggie, how does this explain how the guild is now in league with the CoinLords?))
((It doesn't. When I joined I was told we work for the CoinLords and other houses. I rolled from there, forming that we  make our commissions generaly by one of the CoinLords or other pattrons of Stormreach/Xen'drik/Sharn/Korvaire/etc..))


Feel free to ask questons!

Thank you.  As one who has only been in this whole thing for (coming up on two years in September? Time flies) that is helpful to know and for clarification.   When I first joined it didn't seem like an IC paramilitary organization, and I certainly wouldn't have joined one with my characters, so I'm glad that's no longer the case.

Among other things, my first two characters were Xyries and Xymorel, and one has another allegiance and the other can't deal with yelling people.

Thankie Jaggie for the explanation for us newer (heh. if I still count as that) people.

Hopefully I'll get on the event running bandwagon again soon. I have ideas again, part of why I am not sleeping right now. But, no time till after camping!

If people are interested in doing more with the working for the Coinlords thing, I'd be happy to start running with it here and there. Make up some jobs to get bunches of the guild involved in, give a little more of that feel of tackling things together.

Awesome! Thanks for taking the time to put this together Jaggie. I'm sorry for all the crap this guild seems to have gone through to get to where it is today, but I'm so grateful for the guild I know and love.

In the time I've been here (somehow some part of me still considers myself new, but I suppose after two and a half years I'm not really...) I have had absolutely no problems with your leadership Jaggie. Maybe we just haven't had any major issues that required a strong leader, but still, I think you are just perfect. Also... cookies! :3

"It was and continues to be my pleasure to serve you Guild Leader Lady Jaggie." /salute

We have desparately tried to keep most problems out of the guild view. Sometimes we were more successful than others but all of our work and efforts have been to keep our guild friendly, open and helpful. All of officers have spent countless hours working behind the scenes to keep it so.

My only regret is not having been more involved in the recent past. Thank you all for joining and growing a family of friends.

Oh and be sure to salute your Guild Leader every chance you get. She deserves your respect.  ;-)

I will die as I lived.

Stuffed with days old food that was purchased on the cheap or for free, and closer to a titan than my restraining order allows me to be~
