Origins[edit]

Founded by Horus in November 2006, the Luna Wolves was originally created as a guild for 3 friends to easily contact each other in-game. As Horus was, at the time, the only experienced player and the only one who could afford the guild expenses, he became guild leader and chose the guild hall to be located on the Isle of Meditation, as it reminded him of Shing Jea Monastery, which was his first impression of the game, but also his previous guild The Flight of Dragons, who had also been located on the Isle of Meditation. Joining as the first officers were Seikon Magus and Scythe Spider -- the founding three. After many members passing through the Luna Wolves, the roster is now lined with a small group of friends who saw the guild through its fluctuating membership.


Philosophy[edit]

The Luna Wolves strive to be a 'no-pressure' guild - just a group of friends who are there to game with, or just chat with. As a group they don't take part in PvP regularly, but enjoy a group battle from time to time. Mostly, the guild participates in group PvE, helping newer members through campaigns, farming together for Guild goals (such as Hall upgrades or members armour) or just having fun chopping up the Mantid outside Shing Jea Monastery.

New players are encouraged to introduce themselves, and the guild members will usually address each other on a first name basis so as to keep formalities low. Most conversation is held using the guild chat, so everyone is given a chance to contribute. A sense of humour is definitely required!


History[edit]

Founded shortly after the release of Factions, the Luna Wolves slowly grew in numbers for the first 3 months of existence. Shortly after this, many of the new members left to start guilds of their own, leaving only the 3 founding members, plus the loyal few who stayed. After a year of so, with not much increase in membership, the members slowly became inactive, and a hiatus occurred throughout the Luna Wolves.

Activity started again at the beginning of Summer 2008, when 2 new members, personal friends of the founding three, came to the land of Cantha after purchasing their first copies of Guild Wars. Within 3 days every member of the Luna Wolves seemed to become actiive again, and since their joining activity has kept high. The Wolves now participate in regular PvP events (although still uphold a 'Were not into faction-farming' mentality), and many PvE events, and new members are once again joining the ranks of the Luna Wolves.

Guild Law[edit]

Although the Luna Wolves prefer to keep everything on an informal, relaxed basis, their are only a few rules which we like to follow to keep things ordered.

  • 1st Rule: Be sensible - we all have a sense of humour, but don't be an outright idiot.
  • 2nd Rule: No spamming - no-one on our roster is interested in your spam, regardless of what it features.
  • 3rd Rule: Don't ask for promotions. Please - if your only goal is to reach Officer status, look somewhere else. We don't appoint officers unless we really have to, and even then only those who prove themselves responsible enough will get the position.
