May 3, 2014
Category:

Banner:
CoD

Description

Guild Name [Abbreviation]:
The Children of Darkness [CoD]

Lady Pandora

Leadership Structure:
As the caretakers of the Divine Parents, Pandora/Marius lead this coven of vampires that have a lingering respect for human life, based on the lore behind the Anne Rice books as well as some from Anne Rice's The Vampire Chronicles.

Economic Structure:
Barter, trade, and profit. We're business-centric vampires, and as such we absolutely must keep up our appearances and keep our true nature hidden, except from those we trust.


Player-Ran Establishments:
CoD runs several player ran establishments within their territories and often acquire more territories in various places, expanding their empire. We also own several establishments that are associated with other guilds we run, such as the RBG of Umbra or the Order of the Draco or the Cult of the Fallen.


VAMP'S LAIR (or just "the Lair") (MALAS)
Vamp's Lair is our main player-ran city that we named after the excessive spawns during mating season of vampire bats everywhere, and houses the following:

  • The Resting Souls (Graveyard, Mausoleums, and Memorial Gardens)

NORTH TRINSIC (FELUCCA)
CoD has long been the primary owner of the Spirit Tower in Felucca, dating back to the release of the game. This area has once again beenn acquired by CoD and is now known as "Trinsic Hold"... located just out of the city, right by the Shrine of Spirituality. It boasts:

  • Crescent Moon Tavern & Boutiques
EAST LUNA (MALAS)

SOUTH JHELOM (TRAMMEL)
CoD needed to establish shipping operations to expand their import/export business within the great lands of Trammel and the Lost Lands. Thus the need to lease a port of harbor for us was satisfied by the city of Jhelom when they allowed us to lease their southernmost island, known as South Jhelom. We have obtained leases from the Mayor of Jhelom for the following:
  • The South Docks (Lease)
  • The Port Warehouses (Lease)
  • The Performing Arts Center (Lease)
  • Several of the Small Cottages for our Ship Crews (Lease)
