We are the Cartel." We are the Ashenfold Cartel. We do not align ourselves with any nation or guild - we seek to survive the onslaught of the Dragons while bettering ourselves in turn. All may join the Cartell; all may earn protection and respect within the Ashenfold... Contacts: Shadowedsin, Shockhammer3, Ekuman How we are known depends on where you stand... To the Law Abider there is a Social Club located in Rurikton. Several locale merchants, nobility and ambassadors from Tyria have gathered here under the support of the local D'Robert merchant family. In an effort to provide charitable relief and quality service the D'Robert Social Club offers a vast array of goods, foods, and activities for those interested in a break from these Dragon-Haunted times. In the Free City of Lion's Arch deep in the Hooligan's Route lies the Baron's Gambling Den. To the Criminal the Den is a recent addition funded by local pirates and criminals in an effort to spice up life in the Free City (if it is already not interesting enough). Home to adventrurers and thieves, the Den provides interesting drugs, entertainment and services to those seeking to get dirty work done. Finally, if one digs too deep and has come to Know Too Much then they will find the Ashenfold. Only those that seek will find the society and discover the society bent on surviving the Dragon-Haunted times. Who are we? The Ashenfold Cartel is a guild founded to perpetuate and create enjoyable roleplay in a communal atmosphere. We seek to excel in PvP and PvE while creating unique and ever changing storylines that are created and driven by our membership. How do we accomplish this? We us a combination of story events and random Roleplay to create an organic basis of storytelling. Every action has a consequence and by mixing in different forms of Roleplay from politics to simple adventure the story is never the same. Are you heavy or light roleplay guild? The Cartel may have themes and content which would be at home in a Heavy RP guild, but we do not ostracize those more comfortable with Light or Medium RP preferences from joining. What stories and content a player and their character take part of is left to the player's discretion. As such, we embrace the full spectrum of RP, from Light to Heavy. General Information The Ashenfold was founded as a neutral organization that would hold no alignment except for that created by the membership through their actions alone. For the past two years we have continued to not only iterate our own ideas, but create a guild where members have a full say and can truly shape the In Character destiny of the Cartel itself! We are a community of roleplayers who seek to create and perpetuate dynamic Rp in the Guild Wars Universe in the spirit of Guild Wars 2. Our Stance on Rp Styles We welcome all styles and forms of character in the RP spectrum. Instead of lashing people to a singular guild storyline we encourage an organic evolution of story through action and reaction. Magically inclined roleplayers, Game of Thrones fans, adventurers, mercs and all the like find a home in the Cartel. Guild Features Separate OOC and IC Structure - Our IC and OOC guild structure is entirely separate meaning you as a player can become the IC leader of your own faction if your character can play the game of thrones! RP Hubs and Businesses - Work in the upscale Social Club and Spa, or as criminal in the Gambling Den. Either being completely separate meaning Good, Evil and all in between can exist in the same guild!. Stability and Dedicated Staff - Ashenfold has existed since 2009 and was founded for GW2!
