The foundation behind The Descendents was formed in January 2012 by Finn Arthornio. Formerly a four year member of the Inner Sanctum of Legend-Gaming, serving as the Community Administrator. Due to the nature of Finn's leadership style and a disagreement with another community founder, Finn found himself in a position where removal from the community to form anew was the best scenario for all involved.
The Descendents of Kodan aspires to be among the greats within the Guild Wars 2 Community. Our main goal is that of ridding ourselves of the common, "Revolving Door", seen in most gaming communities today. With so many stringent requirements for acceptance, and so many simple ways to be removed from a guild, how can one set their goals so high to be achieved in game when only a few can successfully navigate the guild's policy? Through several decades worth of experience leading in other guilds, the Great Council of The Descendents have an established ideal for what it takes to run a guild successfully. Focusing on the commonalities we share as gamers is a severe priority. We seek to create a home for gamers that will last and serve the purpose beyond any single game.
The Descendents of Kodan
There is no known, true, origin story for the Norn. Stories, however, tell of a small group of Kodan hunters who were separated from their tribe long ago during the great storm. When the storm had finally cleared, rumors say that the lost tribesman were unable to find their way back to the frozen Icebergs in the North, and were forced to settle in the warmer, albeit still chilling, Shiverpeaks. Through the ages they descended into the race known as the Norn, shedding their bear form and taking up new gods. But not all Norn ally themselves to the new gods. There are those who believe that one day, Koda will grant them the honor of returning to the Sanctuaries.
The Descendents are a proud people. In this, we pride ourselves in our lore and in our biographies. The Descendents will have strong ties to Role Play and carrying out the characters we choose to be. There will be a large amount of depth to our characters and our interactions with those who will share our world. Contribution and involvement in our Role Play Department, however, will never be considered mandatory. Instead, we will focus on all three elements of positive gameplay: PvP most stringently, PvE, and RP. All three elements will be available to our members through the use of a separate leader of each department who's sole mission it will be to facilitate a constant base of activity. This is to say, that, we will have dedicated players in each facet of gameplay and will plan our very best to succeed wholly in each.
Our leadership is comprised of over 50 years of combined leadership experience. Although our numbers may appear small in stature currently, it should be evident by our makeup that we are no one to be trifled with. We are steadily looking for those who wish to be a part of this community. Those, especially, who want to be a part of the founding of a community such as this.
Our Views on PvP
Player vs Player combat will be the primary focus of the majority of our leadership. We anticipate to be heavily involved in the Structured PvP, to include the ever fascinating world of professional gameplay. Although, due to the nature of this being a new game and only very limited play time has thus far been garnered, we will not lay claim to being the best of the best just yet (as some already have, even without experience).
We will also concentrate heavily on World vs World, and in doing so, plan on forging many friendships and alliances in the attempt to bolster our World first, so that we, as a server, can be successful in the coming war.
Our Views on PvE
In the past we have shown that when we are driven, we can be among the first, and best, at dominating the Player vs Environment arena. World Bosses, Dungeons, and Raids... they will fall to the mercy of our organization and power. We will contribute to the community all of our strategies, statistics, and builds as we perfect them.
Our Views on RP
Our High King, Finn, is an avid fan of Role Play and is considered among one of the top writers in his days in past communities. Role Play, thus, will be a center piece to the ability to keep our guild entertained all through the day and all through the night. Although some might argue, you don't have to spend your entire days downing bosses and looting the corpses of the enemy player. Take a second to sit back, and join us at the Drunken Dragon Inn. We'll buy you a flagon of ale.
