So yeah, while I still spend the bulk of my time running with Savvy (which is the what I prefer regardless), I managed to get us both into a guild. It’s not a big guild, and it’s still pretty new, but it’s a guild with promise. So far the guild Leader and the Guild officers have taken a personal approach to recruiting via actually walking up to people that look promising and asking if they want to join a guild. Since my first guild invite was via an anonymous whisper, it was a little refreshing to have someone standing in front of me recruiting as opposed to a disembodied voice that’d noticed I’d picked a healing class via the /who settings.
At first I was a little worried about how well me and Savvy would fit in the guild. We’re not active role players, we just managed to roll on LotRO’s unofficial role playing server. I’d rolled there because Scary, Evil, and Nox my WoW guildies, had rolled there. So when I’d made Edhelgeist to test out the game (months ago) I naturally picked that server. Since I haven’t seen any of them online, it’s just been me and Savvy. Honestly, I’d probably would have stopped playing quite some time ago otherwise. It’s fun to have someone to run with that likes running up to check out some sweet views or do some cliff diving (*giggles*). Heh, so as you can imagine we aren’t typical hard core players, and we aren’t really role players either. I was sort of waiting for things to turn out like they did for Oforf in “The Noob Comic” when he joined his first guild (Link). Fortunately I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that the guild isn’t as heavy on the role playing as some of the guilds I’d looked into. So far the members are also really helpful, trading out recipes they can’t use and running with other guild-mates to complete quests. We even have a guild run set for Friday, which I should even be able to attend (with my night owl type scheduling).
I did ask if the guild had a website and since the answer was no, I volunteered to help get one set up. I figure if nothing else it’ll be a good way for each of us to post up our trade-skills and give us the opportunity to help each other out by crafting upgrades for one another as opposed to buying the stuff off the Auction House. Heh, maybe it’ll help us all save up for mounts a little faster.
