About Us

Pyran is a longstanding gaming community of friends which was founded in 2001. As a member-run guild, the traditional guild structure of GMs, officers and minions don't apply to Pyran. We value everyone's opinion and experience. Pyran isn't a tyranny. All decisions are taken by the Team as a whole and voted on at our weekly guild meetings - this means you can be as involved or as uninvolved in the running of the guild as you like. 

The Pyran community have also played SWG, DaoC, WoW, Fury, AoC, Rift, WAR, SWTOR, Diablo 3 and Archeage. We've ran some of the best battleground premades EU has to offer and have a wealth in PvP battleground, arena and tactical experience. We've also progressed through most of the content of any MMORPG we've played and have a keen interest in casually progressing through the content in WoD.

Pyran would like to add a couple more adult players to our growing playerbase. Due to the nature of our repulsive guild chat, we deem ourselves unsuitable for anyone under the age of eighteen. Our average player age is around 25-35.

You can get an idea of the other games we play by checking out our forums.

Pyran's Guild Rules

Our rules are simple. 

1. Don't exploit
2. Don't be an asshole
3. Don't be a drama lama

You can read the rules in detail here.

Recruitment

Our overall aim in the guild here on Emeriss is to get drunk, have fun and progress through the content - both PVE and PVP - casually. At the moment we plan on having 1-2 event nights per week on Emeriss, the rest of the week being taken up with other games, leagues and tournaments. So if you're looking for a hardcore raiding guild, we probably aren't the right choice. If you're up for playing casually a couple of nights a week with a great bunch of people, and aren't afraid to use a microphone, then hit us up. 

Recruitment isn't just a matter of "whisper for invite". We vet each and every single one of our members that joins. We aren't another faceless guild full of people you don't know or like - we will make an effort to get to know you and welcome you into our community. The recruitment process involves:-

1. An application form, which can be found here.
2. A TeamSpeak chat with one of our senior members
3. A 2 week trial to make sure you fit in with our guild ethos

While it might seem like a lot of effort to join a guild, we're oldschool and we're of the opinion that guilds are about more than just a bunch of random people you raid with. We recruit based on personality, not on gear level. So if you want your gaming time to become more valuable and make some friends while you're at it, hit us up.
We have a guild up on WoD - the new World of Warcraft expansion. You can find us on Emeriss (EU) horde side. Everyone can invite if you're an existing member - or if you'd like to make a new application, click here.

DEM RAIDS
Currently everyone is levelling through the new content (orcs yay). When we're all done, We'll be putting a few raids and such up when we're all ready. You're all welcome, we'll post some more information up about it nearer the time.

Post here if you're interested in raiding.

PREMADES!
Soz will also be putting some premades up (again, when we actually get there, still levelling!) when we're ready, we'll post more info up for you folks. If you're interested in PVP at all, give her a poke (let her know what you're playing and such so she can plan!).

Post here if you're interested in premading.

The old cata forum has been converted over, so feel free to post useful things there.



Have fun in TBC Draenor everybody!


ArcheAge and what next?

Farske a posted Oct 31, 14

Ahoy thar!

The honeymoon period is over, many have moved on, others have decided its too much of a time sink and even more have decided to give World of Warcraft a try.

Currently we have around 70 members. This week only 50 were active, with only 30 being active within the last few days. I've popped online three times this week and the most I saw was 5 people online with 3 of them being AFK.

The events we have attempted never happen, we don't have the party compensation to make a party work (healers, tanks). We do have a trade ship now, we have a couple of Galleons and we have yet to really use them.We have an amazing guild village, yet as people drift away we are going to lose spots. We have lost one spot already.

I believe most people are popping online, tending a farm or crop and logging off again. Trollface made a great post attempting to address this issue already so please feel free to add your input. What we do need is a show of hands who is actually going to keep playing, who wants to invest time and effort into ArcheAge. What do you think we should do?

I intend to keep playing.

With Pyran still growing in strength as people gear, people ding 50, and we pick up new players along the way it is time to get organised and arrange events!

The Guild Meeting on Wednesday was a great success, we discussed farms, relations, events, pvp, guild gear and the storage chests. Check out the notes over at the thread in the Guild Hall.

In addition please congratulate Jaysee for stepping up to a Guild Assist role who will be actively chasing other guilds forming alliances and arranging events with said guilds and alliances. Please keep checking the Guild Relations thread and if in doubt ask in Guild Chat or Jaysee where we stand with XYZ.

Remember reputation is everything, lets avoid breaking any alliances or promises!

We need more Guild Assist volunteers to help with event scheduling. We need someone to be able to identify the best times, schedule events and arrange whos doing what and where. Check out the events thread and volunteer if you fancy it.

Recruitment is still open, you can check our rules here, and apply here.
If you are a member and do not have access, request here.

Dueling. If you are sitting about waiting, duel one another, practice, offer feedback, give sound advice. We will soon be implementing a "Fight these 3 people"(random people) to new applicants to join the guild. We will then judge their knowledge of the game, prowess and how we can help.

Yarr me hearties, we be takin' the high seas, if ye land lubbers have anythin' bad tae say you can call a parlay. 

We have launched our first Galleon, named the Saint Pyr, and slapped on our colours. Thank you to all who contributed to the Galleon! 

Our first venture netted us 6 trade packs from reds, and one destroyed clipper ;)

Check out the Guild Relations thread, important alliance information!

Stay tuned for scheduled privateering nights using the Galleon for the radar, and the clippers for boarding ships. We will need dedicated players to take up roles, such as Radar, Pooner, Trade Pack Recovery, and alike. Keep an eye on the forums for this information. If you are a member and do not have access, request here.

As we now have a bit of strength on the seas, we can expect more Guild Trade Runs and to fuel this, more Pyran Village Farm organisation.

Recruitment is still open, you can check our rules here, and apply here.
