    Default Pearl Fellowship

    Hello everyone,

    Pearl Fellowship is a guild that is gearing up to rise on the Faeblight server on release. We are a guild that has existed in many forms over the years, starting out in EQ1 in 1999 where we became one of the more successful guilds on the Prexus server during the early days of that game. The guild in fact still exists on that server in a niche form with a handful of characters.

    Over the years, the guild has existed in many games, notably in EQ2, Horizons and Vanguard, but has had smaller groups playing Shadowbane, Dark Ages of Camelot and City of Heroes. The guild formed a partnership in WoW with Order of the Illuminatus on the Draka server, where members remain to this day. For the most part however, the core membership has been away from MMOs for a number of years and Rift marks a return to genre. This guild will begin small, with some original members from 1999 and some members added through the years, but plans to place its strength in the new people brought in for Rift. We plan to remain true to the spirit of our founders, but bring the whole vision forward into the new generation of games.

    Pearl Fellowship is chiefly about being a guild made up of people who like to have fun with MMOs, but don't take them too seriously. We find that we attract a more mature player, one that has responsibilities IRL that take priority over gaming. We don't expect that everyone will be online everyday, nor even every week, and that's fine. We hope that people will enjoy each others company when they are online and will be able to build relationships that are mutually beneficial. This is not to say that we won't have our eye on raiding, but it won't be a focus. We know we will get there, but we won't be in a rush.

    Historically, we've attracted folks who reside in the eastern part of North America, with a sizable group of Canadians even. Our numbers will be highest during the evening hours EST. We've decided as a guild to choose the Guardian faction, and have a few players, including myself, in the Beta on the Gnarlwood server. Our website, which for now is just a fresh set of message boards is located at:

    http://www.pearlfellowship.com

    We've been residing on the Gnarlwood server for our Beta adventures, but have realized the Faeblight community movement could be something special and we wanted to be part of it. The guild is currently made of about 15 members, about 10 of those being mains. Our goal would be to develop a roster that is comfortable in size, while still keeping the personal feel. Everyone should be at least familiar with everyone else, or we are not following the path we want to.

    We can't wait to meet everyone on the server and hope a few of you decide that your home is with us.

    Great bunch of people here so far. Unlike alot of other long term guilds trying a new game, there are no clicks here. I joined them during beta 5 and they make you feel welcomed.
    Guild mates actually help, group quest, instance and craft. The more you put into the guild the more you get out of it. This is very much an old school family style guild. They will hit all the content, but care about the members of the guild over the speed of growing.
    So if you like the older EQ1 style community and family style guild, then check us out.

    If interested, type /join pearl once in game and give us a holler. We monitor the channel for new members or guild to guild chat.

    Just a quick update to note that the guild will be created a little later on today. Right now, we are collecting the funds necessary and will be buying charter as soon as I can reach Sanctum.

    In the meantime, anyone interested in saying hello can just /join pearl and say hi.

    See you all in game!

    Another update!

    The guild has reached about 15 members, which is about half as many as we'd like. Everyone is in their late-teens - mid-20's and has been having a blast. Nearly everyone is on for at least a bit each day, and we generally will have about 8-10 people online during peak times.

    Again, we are not quite where we'd like our numbers to be, but we don't aspire to a being a large guild and would rather keep our numbers where everyone knows everyone else.

    Pop on over to our website, or look me up in game if you'd like more info!
