OUR GUILD HISTORY
(Part 5 in the continuing saga of our guild’s history by Randall Frost)
Yes, we have made it to the “Current” era. This is the era we are experiencing now, everyday comings and goings within the guild. It has been going for a few months now and there is some history to point out. But for some guild members, this is what they have known for the most part. One day, this era will be broken off, edited, named appropriately, and filed with the rest of our history. But until then, it’s as current as this “Current” gets.
There had been a recruiting freeze until after the purge although a few names did slip through during it. Once the freeze had been lifted, our numbers again swelled fast to 500. Fortuantely, ZOS has added the ability for us to track when someone has last been actively on. Among those who joined are; ArchonRavage, Game Boyo, TRichmo, PRichmo, Demonic Ripper, Xgrimreaper96, and TyDog.
In March we saw a new High Council with Punisher as Hand and Riddle as Lord Commander. As with MD and Blly, I gave Punisher the same trust and authority. Riddle is busy keeping the website functioning and usable. Ariel continues to keep an eye on the bank, keeping me informed on potential abusers. I’ve slowly started appearing in game; although I’m mainly in Cyrodiil helping EP anyway I can. I’m listening in on chat when I can and started having more of a presence on discord. Unfortunately, my headset has been slowly dying without me truly noticing. So when I wanted to jump in and say hi, I couldn’t. Eventually, I will have a new set and will be again vocal in chat. So watch out, I am coming. Lol!
Thanks to the Thieves Guild DLC, cross faction grouping became a reality. The X-ALLIANCE GROUP was formed for just this purpose. Being able to do cross-alliance groups for dungeons and trials meant the days of being separated by alliance allegiance were over. Discord became the key to helping organize such events, especially last minute groups like Undaunted Dailies. We also gained another sister guild; The Boss Hunters ran by Grim. This complete crafting guild helps those with their need to level character’s crafting skills, craft gear for members, and go shopping for that rare piece.
With so many former great officers, I wanted to create a special rank for them. Going back to our origins, I chose the name Watch Commanders for this special group. The WC rank is for those who have served in the EC or HC, members who have helped this guild be what it is today.
So here we are, as current as this “Current” era can be. When will this era end, be named and filed away? One never knows. It could be next week, next month, or months from now. But this is a great guild and thanks to all of you, it continues to grow. Our history lies in our future.
What does the future hold? Who knows? ZOS is causing the game to be unstable these days and unless fixed, could cause devastating effects on the whole ESO community. Hopefully they’ll stabilize the servers soon and continue to provide thrilling DLC. (Hopefully Vvardenfell, fingers crossed. Lol!)
Will the OG survive another year? I hope so and with your help, we will. Remember; this is YOUR guild. You have a say, please voice it. Just reach out to me or any officers. Your opinion matters in helping our continued growth as a guild. I want to see as many of you as possible for our 2 year anniversary. Thanks again to all our members; you’re the best a guild could have. Stay strong OG, have fun, and good hunting.
THE LOTTERY IS BACK
That's right! The lottery is back for August. Deposit 503g into the guild bank, multiple times if you wish, for the prize of 50K. Good luck! Lottery starts August 1st. [Edit Text]

ELDER SCROLLS LORE
A Recurring Column Written by Ranger_STL
Ranger STL is off this week working hard on his next installment of Elder Scrolls Lore.
If you're interested in Trials, please join the OG Discord servers (info on how to do so, can be found by clicking 'Chat' on the website menu bar). The current Trials planning goes on in the #og-eso-group-finder room and we'd love to see an increased interest! You may also message FilteredRiddle with any questions about Trial groups.
With the release of the Thieves Guild, we can now do cross-alliance groups for dungeons and trials. This means the days of being separated by alliance allegiance are over! If you're interested in doing last minute groups (e.g. Undaunted Dailies) or in becoming part of Trials, please make yourself available in our OG Discord chat. The Group Finder chat is used as a jumping place for lots of last minute guild group content runs. The more people for groups, the more groups in general!
