Group NA/EU, Server Cactuar
The folks who run E3 are silly. Ouya rented a lot across the street to pimp the console... the ESA didn't like that so they countered....
What : Vanillia Raid : Labyrinth
Where : The Twilight Forest
When : Sunday 6/2 @ 4P/7E (THAT'S TODAY!!!)
What's a Vanilla raid? There can be nothing on your body that cannot be made in vanilla minecraft. That means no power armor, no rail gun, no advanced nano, no jet pack.
What's a Labyrinth? It is a maze, underground in the Twilight Forest, filled with Minataurs, fire beetles and lewts.
Hop on mumble, enchant yerself a diamond sword, and meet at the Twilight portal in the center of town.
Live tonight (unless something happens with the VPS). We've rented a new VPS from our host and are going to try that out. It'll be more flexible, but we're not 100% sure on the performance... so... this should be a fun test.
Once we've got the VPS, I'll get stuff loaded pretty quick and then setup someone else to be able to manage the server as well. (yay mymcadmin)
If this is something people enjoy, after this month if 5 people give $5 to the server per month, this will be doable. If we get to that point, we'll talk about expectations for the server (like, how long we run each world), but the benefit of running this as a VPS is that we could run more than one instance. We could have one long-haul instance and then one more test/try new mods/events instance.
Either way... MY goal is to have something we can run long haul. Assuming FTB 1.1.0 has all the kinks worked out, that could do. I'll keep an eye on the bug reports and whatnot, but we should be able to have that as a long run option.
Now the question is recipe hardmode? (yes) and world hardmod (... yes?)
I'll be collapsing some of our lesser used Other Games sub-forums. Tera, BF3, etc... The posts will all still exist here in the main Other Games and Interests forum, so no data lost. If you'll looking for something REAL old, search will likely be your best bet.
That's right! Every member, every division, every game; we're all coming together for one big meeting! There will be fun, there will be (at least one) contests, there will be door prizes and there will be gnome/asura jokes. Best of all, it's more than just another meeting on ventrillo or mumble. Pie has prepared a place for us in Second Life! We have our own, tropical TG hang out, complete with beach blankets to lounge on, a yacht and an arcade on a boardwalk!
Please do your best to join us Wednesday night, May 15th at 6P Pacific, 9PM Eastern. The meeting will take place in Second Life and on Mumble. If you can only make it onto voice, that's understandable, but I promise it'll be a ton of fun if you can get in Second Life. The Second Life client is only a 200mb install, the account is completely free and we'll all just be able to hang out an laugh at how silly our avatars look... or at the banana Dak is wearing on his head. We'll have a competition to get the highest score on skeeball (with a prize!), hang out an talk about general guild stuff as well.
Plan for this to be a relaxed meeting, hanging out with members from across multiple divisions, meeting new people and just generally having a good time. I'll update everyone on some guild-wide initiatives, Jaeden will have an update on one or two charter amendments and I (and/or the rest of the council) will field whatever guild related questions or issues you want to bring up.
All other guild events for that night will be canceled or rescheduled... soooooo... NO EXCUSES! Come hang out with everybody! There will be alot of notification about this. Officers and councilors will be blasting reminders in guild chat, I will be do. MOTDs will remind everyone... we want everyone to know, every one to attend!
We're putting together a simple, straight forward guide to get your account created, the "Firestorm" Second Life client loaded up and get you teleported to Guardian Island in-game. We'll also have a second, more advanced tutorial if you want to dig deeper, but the first simple one is really all you need. Expect to see that before the weekend is out! We've also scheduled a quick hop-in and test night (Monday, May 13th from 5P/8E until 7P/10E) if you want to give it a whirl before the meeting, take a couple practice runs at Skeeball or have someone show your around and do some in-game shopping. We've been scoping out free clothing stores, so if you want to do some shopping for your avatar, that'll be a great night for it.
I hope everyone can make it a priority to attend. We had a test run of this for an officer's meeting and it was really a great time. We're not going to have this event super often, so we'd really like as many people as possible to attend. For those who can't make a weekday night, we'll have a short follow up meeting at 1P/4E on Saturday the 18th. Merriment to be had then as well, but the real show's Wednesday night.
Agenda is as follows...
- Welcome : Thranx
See YOU on the ides of May!

Huzzah! Greetings and good evening fellow Guardians. This evening we're having an all officer's meeting that's been planned for about 2 weeks now, and we're using it as a test for a future all guild meeting.
"A test?" You say.
"Why yes!" says I.
We're going to see how things shake out, but the plan is to have an all guild meeting approximately two weeks from now and we'll all meet up in mumble and in Second Life as well! This will give us a chance to have a meeting with everyone from ALL divisions while at the same time being in a "game space" that doesn't cost anyone a dime and also has the benefit of being a minimal install footprint! A mere 200mb.
tl;dr : Tonight we're testing meetings via second life combined with mumble and we'll be live streaming it on our Twitch channel at twitch.tv/guardianhq.
Stay tuned for future updates on the all guild meeting and tune in tonight to take a look at the all officer meeting! (6P/9E)

The Assistant Guild Leader is a critical post, one that Torynn has served well in for over two years now. His guidance on the council, his love of the charter and his persistence in growing our guild as the best gaming community in existence has been excellent. Much as Rico had to nearly 3 years ago as GL, Torynn in his short stint as acting GL took care of business in a turbulent time. He has left me a smoother operation than he found it just shy of two months ago.
Thank you. Those two words are simply not deep enough to convey our gratitude for your service.
As to his replacement, it is someone with whom you are all quite familiar. Has he has bared his soul in not one but two election cycles. Effective... now... Jaedan is our new Assistant Guild Leader. I'd say Jaedan has some big shoes to fill, but Torynn emptied the closet on his way out the door. He also got off with a really nice scarf Meg had, and Barnaby is still looking for his keys. So, if you see Torynn, please call 303-555-1920 to report his whereabouts.
With Jaedan stepping up into the AGL role, that leaves a vacancy for the ESO DL spot... one we will fill with the very capable and ESO excited Booms. Booms has a lengthy tradition at this point of pounding games into submission and making them his... realm of expertise. I expect no less in ESO, and he's excited to bring some fresh ideas to the table and lead us to excellence there.
So, congrats and thanks yous all around. Torynn, Jaedan and Booms my hats off to all of you for your willingness to serve.
