"That is not dead which can eternal lie, and with strange aeons even death may die." - Abdul Alhazred


668


Greetings Mortal,

I am pleased to announce the establishment of the Guild that should not be named, not yet at least. If you're interested in joining me in my perilous quest of glory and fortune you should read more...


I seek nothing but a few devoted souls who share the same passion as I do. This order, this guild, is not meant to attract every worthless human. For the Raven have whispered in my ears and told me that a good small fellowship of devoted friends is far greater than a horde of imbeciles. Hence, why I chose you.

Who am I, you dare ask?
I have many names, but you may call me Rana, an Immortal Deity... I was there when Richard Garfield first unleashed his reckless war-machine he called Magic: The Gathering. I've slayed and massacred millions of armies in various parallel worlds in TCGs, LCGs, Board Games, Deck Building Games and basically almost any tabletop game most of you mortal souls have ever heard of.


669

I can hear you mumbling, and I understand. Being a Goddess of Mayhem is not enough to establish an organized Guild, that is true. But I come from the world of Norrath and I've rallied hundreds of other friends organized to face difficult challenges. Naggefan, Lady Vox, Trakannon, and the infamous Avatar of War who personally spanked my blue little Dark Elf ass over and over again. And even that wasn't when organized war have started but it is definitely the memory I cherish the most.

I see you have more questions; go ahead... Ask.


What's the deal?
I am forming a new fellowship and this is a chance for you to be part of something that you will help create. I don't need peons, I need partners. We're going to seek the Shards of Fate in a new world called Hex and until our souls get dragged into that forsaken realm, I shall keep seeking my allies.



Why should I join you?
This Guild is going to be extremely selective with its admission once the portal to Hex is opened. As for now, if you're worthy... you will be a core member of this Secret Order. We're going to wreck havoc in both the PvE and PvP worlds, but neither is mandatory. My treasury is going to be open to aid all my Kindred, not to mention since I am a Dragon Lord you do get certain advantages also.

We will conduct Guild Events (Leagues, Cups and other internal activities) with plenty of prizes. We will be few but a proud bunch.



I'm interested, what should I do?
Communicate with me here in this forum, if you're the shy-kind (I love... shy... people) you may PM. Or you can simply reply. Share with me your intentions, your ideas or ask any question and I will be happy to answer.


/roleplaying off

Everyone's welcome, this is not a "pro" guild. It's a PvE/PvP Euro Time guild intended to cater to a smaller group of people. My goal is to make new friends where we can help each other to up our game. This is not for casuals nor it is "serious", if you're the kind of person who wants to challenge themselves but not take things too seriously this guild is for you.

My #1 criteria of admission is simply decency. For now at least *wink*.

We reached our limit, one opening for a PvE Elder (RL or GK+ required). If you're interested in being put in the waiting list you may send me a PM. You'll be given priority to join the guild just in case one of our members becomes inactive for a month or leaves the guild.

Hello everyone,
The concept of the guild you are setting up sound very appealing to me. Also if I'm correct you are in the EU right?

I'm not a shy person :rolleyes: but I can pm you if it would make you happy :o

I've played MTG for a while in the past and really enjoyed it, too bad the group kinda scattered all over the country and I've been missing it ever sins. And that's why when I found out about HEX I was super excited like all of you over here. Pledged and continued to follow the growth and new content.

Now it's time to find some nice people to experience this game with and maximize the fun.

Hello!
I am also looking for a smallish Euro guild to call home!

Having a role player advertisement is a huge plus!
So about me, I live in Finland and have loads of experience in Mmos and role play.
TCG wise I also started with Mtg but never played competitively.
I would much interested to join, both me and my wife, King and Queen backers.

When the game launches we're going to need a PvE Elder, a PvP Elder and a Guild Events Elder.

2. Provide the guild with tips and strategies beating PvE encounters.
3. Organizes PvE events/schedules (for raids).
4. Excellent Communication skills.


PvP Elder Requirements:
1. To research and focus their energy on the PvP part of Hex.
2. Provide the guild with tips and strategies regarding PvP in general.
3. Help Guild Members tune up their decks.
4. Holds our flag in the wars of Hex in competitive tournaments (make us proud!).
5. Excellent Communication skills.


Guild Events Elder Requirements:
1. Friendly personality.
2. Ability to organize activities and events (leagues, cups and others).

I am not allowed to talk about it, but it might have something to do with collecting. That's just rumours, though, can't disclose anything with any certainty ;)

I'm not sure if I have the time for an Elder position, but I'm pretty obsessive about strategies and deck building, so I'd probably be best off helping the PvP Elder in his/her task.

Excellent, there are plenty of things to do in Hex due to all the tools promised by the dev team. :)

I'm planning for Guild League (of two tiers, each tier consist of 10 players). Top 3 will go to the next tier, bottom 3 will go to the lower tier. Participating is not mandatory but encouraged (all Elders and Masters must participate :p).

Oh, riiight lol the Sneaky Collectors :p
Deck Building is going to be a very important aspect of the guild since the game is new. I'm sure we'll have fun coming up with deadly combos and tuning decks together!


There's also a new position open for everyone interested.

Card Market Value Coordinator:
1. To help me personally evaluating cards worth in Gold and Platinum
2. To help me put these values in a spread sheet.
3. Card Power/Value and Card "Worth" (Alternate Art, Rare...etc).

Oh and you can use the banner below and link it to this thread if you wish (not required though).

You had me at Lovecraft, then you really had me at Norrath.

Unfortunately I'm in the GMT-4/GMT-5 timezone, though if this isn't an issue I would gladly place my decks under this banner and help carry it to glory.

I started playing Magic shortly after 4th Edition came out and sort of fell out of it in the later years for various reasons, so I'm really looking forward to playing a proper, fully realized digital TCG that also combines my other passion, MMOs.

As an MMO player I gravitate more towards the PvE raid side of things, but I do enjoy the highly competitive PvP nature of TCGs. Part of why I pledged Grand King, I simply couldn't choose which side to throw myself into. :I

Hello fellow EverQuest player! :D

If you appreciate Lovecraft's mythos... this guild is, thematically, a combination between Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe mixed together. :p

I know what you mean about wanting to experience both PvE and PvP and to be honest I think in this game you cannot ignore either parts of the game. I think both are going to be essential to delve into. As for the guild timing; it really doesn't matter where you're logging-in from as long as you can join us at around 2:00 pm to 10:00 pm GMT on weekdays and 10:00 am to 10:00 pm GMT on weekends. :)

Don't they say that if you want to make an omelette, you have to break some rules? And I like omelette...*wink*
I'd like to put my curiosity in service of 'exploiting' PvE, mainly, and wouldn't shy away from evaluating cards. My 'expertise', if you could call it that way (from Magic, WoW TCG, Netrunner, Dominion and many others) is skewed towards deck building, less toward playing competitively. I'm more of a support character, cooperation oriented.

Hello again!
My wife's user name is Alldreamer.

I'm honestly unsure which branch to pick currently, I'm usually more of a PvE player, but HEX's system sounds quite nice and I have done drafting and tournaments before with my friends, so I am somewhat familiar with the tournament structure, deck buildings, strategies etc.

Because of that, I am not going to claim any position for now, will have to wait for Alpha and see how the PvE part plays out exactly or if the PvP piece is more to my liking. Guild Events are also a possibility, so I am just undecided right now :D

PS: Is this going to be faction-specific guild? If yes which one? Do we even know if Guilds are faction specific or not? :P

Mmmm Omelettes, now you made me hungry. You better make me some. :p

I love Netrunner and I played Dominion (not my favorite deck building game though!). You have great experience there, I'm sure your help is going to be appreciated. :)

There's no need to restrict yourself with any activity, just do whatever you feel like doing! Nothing is mandatory in this guild, though participation is encouraged.

I don't think we'll be restricted to one faction, unless we have to. We'll see when the game starts. :)

Oh, I hope I don't get misunderstood. I meant the name/website art will be influenced by that. It shouldn't interfere with the actual game content (though I believe I personally will infiltrate the game as a character... *evil laugh*). No, seriously... I will. :p

Hi,

the description sounds great and I would very much like to join.

There is but one question:

I have a wife (Non Player), two Kids and a Job, so my playing time is limited. I am passionat about gaming and have some experience, I would want to participate as much as I can handle with all the other duties. So my question is, is that enough?

If you say yes, then Count me in and I am looking forward to making some new friends!

Hi,

Initially I read Pentregarth thread where he was looking for a guild, and I thought damn he's looking for the same kind of guild as I am.
Followed the link in that thread and now I am here, wanting to join.

I used the play MtG some 8 years ago (never played it professionally). I haven't touched a TCG since, so my knowledge of them is rather rusty to say the least. But when I first heard about Hex I was immediately hooked, especially since I do like to play MMOs from time to time as well.

I haven't decided yet whether to focus on PvE or PvP. I was going to wait until I could actually play the game. But taking part in Guild events and tournaments is definitely something I will do.

Wanted to go for the Grand King Tier, but as I was a little late to the party that was allready gone. So I opted for the Tier that should not be named :) because I didn't have enough money to go any higher than Grand King.

I am looking forward to playing the game and would like to do so with an awesome bunch of people :)

As promised our Guild is never going to be over-populated and we're going to be limited to 20 members for now. However, waiting-lists will be provided just in case when the game starts some people might go missing/lose interest in the game. But once the game begins we will try as much as we can to hover around 20-30 members.

Well then, let's get this party started!

Alias: Pentregarth (who would've guessed ^^)
Nationality: German (no, I'm not a nazi ;) )
Age: 24
Occupation: Med student
Interests: Pretty much anything that would be considered nerdy by the general population - tabletop, pen&paper RPGs, board/card games, PC games - the whole bunch. I also play quite a few instruments (bagpipes, hurdy-gurdy, bowed psaltery - I'm in a medieval metal band)
Favourite Quote: "The notion that nature can be calculated inevitably leads to the conclusion that humans too can be reduced to basic mechanical parts" (bonus points if you can tell me where it's from ^^)

Bagpipes? seriously? wow :)
You should share some of your work with us ;)

I'd love to, if there was any to share ^^ We're still working on getting everything together - we're all doing this as a hobby, and the genre is kind of a niche, so it's hard to find people for a band in the first place. As soon as there are any recordings, I'll tell you ^^

My claims to fame are not world shattering. Feel free to give a look to Blitz Brigade on iTunes for the latest batch.

Also, I thought being coy about your age only happened in the dime-a-dozen romance paperbacks from the 90s. Guess I was wrong. ;)

Hi everyone,

the situation I found myself in is pretty much the same as for Strings and Pentregarth,

Hi,

Initially I read Pentregarth thread where he was looking for a guild, and I thought damn he's looking for the same kind of guild as I am.
Followed the link in that thread and now I am here, wanting to join.

I used the play MtG some 8 years ago (never played it professionally). I haven't touched a TCG since, so my knowledge of them is rather rusty to say the least. But when I first heard about Hex I was immediately hooked, especially since I do like to play MMOs from time to time as well.

I haven't decided yet whether to focus on PvE or PvP. I was going to wait until I could actually play the game. But taking part in Guild events and tournaments is definitely something I will do.

Wanted to go for the Grand King Tier, but as I was a little late to the party that was allready gone. So I opted for the Tier that should not be named because I didn't have enough money to go any higher than Grand King.

I am looking forward to playing the game and would like to do so with an awesome bunch of people

Nevertheless there are some differences:
-I stopped playing MtG 7 years ago
-probably the most crucial point, i never played an MMO, i always prefered the single player RPG games like TheWitcher or DS
-I backed up as a squire (We all can't be kings... right? :p )
I dont know how important this actually is to have played an MMO game before, but I really enjoy deckbuilding and finding nice strategies. As I am currently enjoying playing the "Game of Thones" Board game with my friends which is a really nice game for 6 players there are thousands of possibilities in the game evolving and it never gets boring to play.
What I would like to point out with this is that I am eager to put time and effort into a challenging "problem". I dont know if this is better for the PvE or PvP version, but I surely would like to try out both.
As for the personal information...
Name: MD11
Nationality: German
Age: 22
Interests: Well as can be derived from the things above, obviously PC Games and challenging board games, but I also like to do a lot of sports and reading(nearly no fantasy, I only read the 5 GoT books).

To conclude I have to say I really like your approach to form a casual guild that is still looking to be able to compete as long as it offers the corresponding fun to its members... I probably would be very regularly active, but not for extremely long periods of time.

Hoping for a postivie response and greetings

Hey!

I am but a young lad from Denmark, a slacker some might say, but I love my fun and games!
I'm looking for a social group of players, to start exploring this new mix of genres, both of which I enjoy a lot!
At the moment I play MTG with a small group of friends, we have been doing so for the last year or so.
On the MMO side, I have played all kinds of them, starting with WoW and trying out others here and there. But I'm not playing any at the moment.
I have a good amount of time to waste between my job and sport, and when I saw HEX, (3 hours too late :'( ) I thought that it might be a good place to put some of that time into.

So I hope that I can join you guys. You all seem like people of a mind like my own.

Best regard from Boens

Nice read! I'm not exactly new to TCGs, but since I never really played competitively (and haven't played MtG in quite a few years ^^), it's definitely good to catch up on some of the important principles...

That is a very good article in deed, same for me as i usually play friendly games with friends.
After a while of play i could easily see the different concepts and play style of the decks we used and was able to tweak some of my decks as well.
However this article really sheds a bright light on important concepts i never bothered to fully understand before creating/altering a deck.
I guess i need to get some practice with my MTG collection until HEX is out :D

Hi guys!
Loved the intro and the name is not bad.
If you have place for a newbie (in TCGs that is, but former hardcore WOW in Vanilla and TBC mostly) and an avid SF&F reader, I am in.
I have a King pledge. I'm mostly interested in the PvE part, but for sure will do me some drafting.
The name's Andrei, I'm from Romania (Bucharest) and I'm 32 yrs old (on ID that is :P).
Thanks for taking your time to read.

Nice article. The nice thing about deck is that you can tweak it.
Just try it out see what works and what doesn't. It all about learning the game.
Most things i try to remember while i'm building a deck:

- Should be fun to play with
- Try to maximize the change for you're combo to work
- I think about what the weakness is of you're and try to think of a solution
- Think about build up of you're deck mana wise
- Often the most simple thinks work best
- Don't dismiss cards that on there own are terrible. look at the good effect of a card en see if you can use the bad aspect of a card in you're advantage

hi guys I'm a 30 year old Greek Geek, my childhood was destroyed by Lord of the rings, ManOwaR, dungeons and dragons, warhammer and magic the gathering(somehow I managed to escape the jaws of MMO games till the moment I pledged for Captain Tier. Unfortunately childhood is over and now I am forced to "role play" the miserable role of a surveying engineer six days per week(weeaaaaaaaak). Still i am pretty sure that i will find some spare hours for HexXx.
So are you guys still hiring? ?? :cool:
