    Hey all, i'm like the only active member in a small guild and after a few years of waiting I am finally convinced the other members aren't coming back. That said, I would like to be social and actually MM in this MMORPG. So if anyone is recruiting, icq or pm me so we can get together!

    I like to kill stuff and i also collect rares and craft :)

    Of all the things i've done in this game, PvP is the thing I enjoy the least so no, not people.

    Keep an eye on General Chat and either answer a call for a hunt or initiate one yourself. Shard activity is a little light at the moment due to the holidays but will hopefully pick up again in a few weeks.

    I know K^S is a pretty close group of friends that do champ's and group events. If you see Wild at luna or really any tags members ask them about the guild.

    I'm also looking for a guild on Cats :)
    Maybe we should start a new one
    for returning players or something?

    I think this idea is long overdue. Like Dante I am in a guild of one...I long ago gave up on rebuilding the group and accepted that all my former guildmates are gone and I'm not one for pick-up groups.

    One of the things that should be happening as the population gets lower and lower is that the community should be growing into a close knit group. Instead people are giving up on the low-population shards and just picking up and moving to Atlantic. If you read Uhall you will see someone trying to save their shard (Siege Perilous). My ICQ is 8249606 should anyone wish to pursue this idea, or just send me a PM if you don't have ICQ.

    ICQ.. Wow memories, haven't logged on to that in a long time.

    I'm all for setting something up.

    I actually moved to Cats from Atl like a week ago and I'm still in the process of building up characters to be somewhat self sufficient.

    I'm online usually in the morning, hopefully you guys are too.
    Give me shout..

    My main guy is Steely McBeam, I'm sure if we're on at the same times I've annoyed most of you with my constant promotion of my E-3 new Magencia Stall which houses the best pets on Cats for sale all 4.0 or better (vendor name)

    Greater Dragons most over 900hps
    Almost perfect Cu Sidhe's, one pure white almost fully trained.

    I love taming so buy my amazing pets so I can fit more in!

    There's hope for Cats (my original shard :)

    I am not a current returning player, returned about 2 yrs ago.. My current guild has been dead for awhile tho. Lucky if 2 other members are on at once.
    I have been wanting to create a guild for awhile now. So afew days ago I was bored and made one on my tamer..
    I mostly wanted to see if one of my old guild names were still available. One of the names were still left which was awesome.. The Order Of The Dragon, DRGN
    I have not started to recruit yet so it is currently only me in the guild.

    My crafter and one of my main characters is called Ducan Ironweaver. In game everyone just calls me Ducan or Duncan..
    I know Steely knows me in game not sure if any of the rest of you do. I am often spamming in gen chat buying or selling items or just shooting the breeze.

    I am def down to invite you all into my newly created guild and any other returning/new/or vet player thats looking for some people to hunt with.
    I am easy going and always enjoy helping others if I can.
    I love hunting basicly anything. i am always down to go and kill some stuff and just having a good time.
    I am not the richest on the shard but i am well off you can say. And in position to help set up new/returning players with basic suits and everything.
    And once we start going on hunts we can collect imbuing ingeds and stuff and I can craft higher end suits for those in need.

    Haven't thought of any guild rules yet. But I think the only rules you really need are::
    Be kind to other guildies/players and help if you can if they are in need.
    Don't attack any guild members unless you have permission(The main rule that should never be broke)
    Try to set up guild hunts every so often..
    Can't think of any others & not sure if any other rules are really needed. But as the guild grows we can easily add to them if anyone thinks of any.

    I also own a Luna house which once I get the deco for it completely done I can set up a guild vendor house.

    Eventually I wouldn't mind doing some guild events aswell. Pet tournaments for anyone with tamers, maybe scavenger hunts, or races. More can be thought of in due time.
    Give us some more fun things todo then just hunting..

    I think we could get a nice prosperous guild going.

    If any of you would like to join me and get a guild up and running. You can contact me in this post, PM me, ICQ me 619-885-537 (Prob the easiest way to get ahold of me), or you can find me in game just ask for Ducan in general chat.

    Hey Ducan.

    Definitely count me, I'll ICQ you later or you can just sent me one at ICQ # 8249606, and thanks for taking the reins on this one. I've run a few guilds in my time, and was about to volunteer to start up this one, but I honestly don't think I have the time to do a proper job of running one full-time, though I'll certainly be glad to help in anyway I can. Like you I'm not rich, and don't have all the latest greatest equipment, but have crafters, tamers, and all the rest. If we get players that need better suits, I'm sure we can go on some hunts to gather up items and ingredients to help them out.

    One possible suggestion, is that in addition to creating a guild, you could create a guild alliance. I think a lot of players are in the same boat right now, where they're essentially in an old guild by themselves but they might not like the idea of giving up the guild completely (defunct though it may be). This way players could join the formal guild you're starting, or join the alliance. This might also appeal to small inactive guilds that have a few members. Just a thought, up to you, since you're the Guild Leader..."all hail Ducan." And yes I've heard your name, not sure where, but I've probably seen you in game and look forward to hunting with you and the others.

    We might need to define the basics of the guild pretty early on to avoid problems down the road. For example, is this open to anyone and everyone, or are we going to try and define a playstyle (easy going, uber, a mix, are we going to accept war invitations from other guilds (would suggest not as this opens a big can of worms). If this takes off is everyone going to be immediately guilded or will there be a trial period...etc etc.

    Can I make a good suggestion. This can go for all the new and returning players and even the current guilds or anti social players.


    If you all have mutiple new guilds you can combine or make a huge new one. You can also ally the smaller guilds and solo guilds. Gives you a broader network to do events and play together in groups.

    Hello everyone! I've been thinking about joining, also. I miss the days of playing in groups. It's always good to have someone at your back. I've been hunting solo for years. I'm usually on in the evening and most weekends. My main chars are Ankanna and Storm. Hit me up with a pm here or if you see me in-game feel free to holler at me. I don't have ICQ.

    What? No ICQ? Heh, I guess ICQ is pretty old...does anyone outside of UO use ICQ? Actually you raise a good point. How do non-ICQ players keep in touch? In game chat channels? Ventrilo? Forums? In-game bulletin boards? Well I'm sure we'll figure something out.

    Can always use Twitter now days. Most guild sites use it when they are making game events up.

    I have Twitter app on my smartphone and can get a hold of my guildies in GW2 or know what is going on if I am not on the computer.

    Another idea could be if someone made a catskills UO facebook page and all the players wanting to do events and stuff can get info there. Thats for players who like facebook.

    Then you have the forums here and announce them on here.

    @Irulia Darkaith--- The guild alliance is def a good idea and something that we can do... Accepting war invitations is something that I wouldnt do. I don't think everyone that joins the guild will be pvp players. So I wouldn't goto war with another guild, this way non pvp players don't have to worry about constantly watching there back.
    The basics of the group I think a mix would work best, leet players, new players, people tired of solo hunting, people who would want to pvp or do fel champs, non pvper, and ect, ect. I think a mix would be best and I would want everyone that joins tobe pretty easy going, this way there is no drama..
    I think that once we get a decent size foundation of players.. Then we can start up a trial period for new players. Try them out for a certain period of time and then have the guild vote on if they are welcomed to join our ranks or not...


    @Ankanna-- Since you don't have ICQ you can PM me. You can also try and find me in game. Just yell out in general chat for Ducan or Duncan and I am sure that we will be able to get together..



    @maujai-- I will ICQ you 2day about joing up..



    @DanteSignas-- I will also ICQ you 2day about it aswell..


    As far as another form of communication once the guild gets up and running I can get the guild added to the guild forums. This way we will have a forum to talk/plan events and such.



    One last thing that I would like to ask all of you and anyone else that is interested in joining. Can you please send me a PM with all of your characters names, which character/s you would like to add into the guild, also let me know if you have ICQ or not(pls include your icq# aswell).. This way we can start to get the ball rolling and I can start creating a guild charter that I can lock down so everyone know who everyone is... If you know of anyone else that would like to join please let them know the info stated above^^ and have them contact me..

    There is also a house up for sale and the owner is taking offers for it. I placed an offer and am trying to buy the house b/c I think that it would make the perfect guild house..


    Hope to hear from all of you and hopefully we can get this up and running in the very near future

    Hi All,
    Former 11 year CATS player that moved to Siege in 2008 BarefootPrincess (for any who played back in the day). Extended alliance is definitely a good way to go for a diverse small population. We on SP are doing this with much sucess. Gilfane, the largest active guild is part of an alliance (the White Council) which has extented membership to any non-PK guild regardless of how many are in the guild. What this does is provide an opportunity for players to join in either a server-up and/or 6PM est well organized weekday hunt plus anything people have decided to do in between. This way old guilds with diminished numbers can keep their name and identity while having others to do some good hunts with. Also, it gives crafters access to customers and the reverse. I wish you all the best.
