As not many of you know, the Guild is almost 10 years old soon! The first iteration of the Guild was founded nearly 10 years ago on the 7th of July in 2007, by the same head honcho and man with the plan that runs the site now; @Mahz, then known as Mahzkrieg. This calls for celebrations. Other than decorating the place for the occasion, I thought it would be nice to involve the community (y'all) in this. Many of you, like myself, have been here for a long time and the Guild holds a special place in our heart as our home-away-from-home and favorite creative outlet.

That's why I'd like to ask all of you to write down, in any format of your choice (poem, short blurb, image macro, etc), what the Guild means to you. It can be a sincere and genuine user testimonial, a funny story of your favorite moment here, a dank copypasta, whatever -- anything goes -- and either submit it in a post in this thread or send it to us directly. Whatever it is you decide to make, try to be concise, because the best, funniest, most heartwarming and clever submissions will be displayed on a special spot on the front page of the Guild that rotates through all of the selected submissions every time you reload the page.

Thanks for so many years of good times and excellent roleplaying. May the Force live long and prosper, Harry.

Bump, I'll add this to the header so that it doesn't compete with the Dev Journal.

I've always wanted to Write. Or at least, have wanted to for a long while. However, original stories takes an incredible amount of time and effort, and they're not nearly as good for improvement as some might think. But roleplaying here has given me the chance to observe others, see other styles of writing, and steadily grow. When I started here, 500 words for a single post was massive for me. Now? I am disappointed with less than 1000. It is a place that has helped me grow immensely, not only in quantity, but quality as well.

I mean. If it wasn't for the guild I'd probably still be a massive scrub with my writing, so that's neat.

I remember throwing myself into pirate adventures and cringy superhero stories in the old days. I remember tales of gods and demons, of magic gone hilariously and horribly wrong. One time I played a wizard who's abilities were so bad he often turned himself into a teapot. I like to think I'm a better writer then I was back then, and those old roleplays helped me get here. In all this time, I find that RPG is where I come back to, where some of my roots are, where the people are, and where there is always stories to delight in.

thx 2 the guild i cud git gud
Really though, my writing got much better and the place helped me find and fall in love with a brilliant writer and someone who is helping me out with my clinical depression with patience and smiles. :) Everyone else is SO supportive too! I was so touched! I will never forget my favourite RPers, and many heartwarming RPs like Woll/Wolf Manor (yeah!!), Tower of Carnage and Shine City series. Thanks to the guild, all my days always felt a little...simply brighter! May we have many more brilliant, happy years!

Ah, our venerable guild. Ten years already? Look at you grow!

I cannot say I would have been here since the very start, since if I did that would be lying, but I distinctively remember the time an internet acquaintance of mine recommended our group would migrate from our current place to over here. I wondered what the change would bring and if it would be any good, but after I had spent mere three days around these parts, I couldn't help but wonder how I had managed with the old place at all.

Now I won't talk much about those times since, to be fair, those memories would serve no purpose here. Instead, I will talk of something that was a great disaster to many of us: The Guildfall. Back in that December, a little over three and a half years ago, the guild suddenly collapsed. No connection could be established, our RP buddies disappeared to the wide web where we had no tools of finding them and many RPs simply vanished. And let me tell you, that is something not just any site could come back from.

But we did, and we did it well!

Post Guildfall, in the January when the site now built from the ground up by our glorious undulating face overlord @Mahz, we returned in numbers. We roamed back to the new location, looking around, finding old pals where we could and setting those games we had loved up again if we at all could. Learning what had happened, doing our best to not let it happen again (although that was mostly out of our hands), and the most RPer-like thing that could at all be done: We did RPs out of the guildfall! :D

And to top my memories off, we come to the final point I can proudly claim: I've been here since the new beginning!

I have been writing since I was 12 years old, at least three times a week enjoying the escape that came from developing my own world with someone else. I started out on a Harry Potter themed website and when it was announced it was going to be shut down, I found myself going through withdraws.

The idea that I might never write again was a scary thought to me. That’s when I ran into the Role player’s Guild in a desperate attempt to find something to fill the void that I knew was going to be missed. Upon my arrival to this site I… well I didn’t know what to expect. I had only done one style of role play and there were so many here I was a bit overwhelmed. I walked into a party where I knew no one and I felt like that odd ball kid in the corner with their soda desperately looking for someone to talk to.

I knew this wasn’t me and I took a chance, a single chance and if it didn’t work I was going to leave. I posted on the 1x1 section of the older version of this site with a small detail about myself and I had a very welcoming response with people wanting to write with me. In fact the overwhelming feeling left me crying with joy at my computer desk all those years ago.

These were tears of joy. Joy because people wanted to talk to me even though they didn’t know me; people were interested in my ideas and/or my characters who were and were not Harry Potter related and, most importantly for me, I didn’t lose my beloved hobby of writing.

This writing hobby isn’t for everyone but it is for me. It is a way to express my creativity, develop my writing skills and continues on my journey of, well, acting because I love designing and developing personalities/people which resembles acting.

I am a highly social person in real life, I have friends and family and do activities with them but… something about this, the freedom to express one’s self creatively in writing is something I treasure more than I can put into words. I am so, SO grateful to be able to continue to do my hobby of writing thanks to the functioning of this website.

From the bottom of my heart, I say “Thank You.”

I remember joining the guild back in...I wanna say..summer of 2011. It was the year I moved away from one of my best friends, and this was one of the ways that we stayed in contact. He was a good friend back in middle school. Anyway, when I first joined I had no idea what role-playing was. I had some weird chat room version of it down packed, but this form is so much more. I remember creating my first character on this site, Plague. Son of the Titan of Chaos himself. He died. Horribly, then got resurrected by the side of himself that just didn't know how to stay dead. After that I moved on, browsing the free section...then moving onto 1x1's. I eventually lost my interest, and broke off, but that was after the great crash of 2014. I'm trying to come back now, seeing as I've learned more and want to make better characters that have actual depth and meaning, and work with others to create stories, wondrous adventures, simple living, beautiful tragedies, romances, anything at all. To bring it all together, I've been here on and off for six years and finally have the patience for this again.
