The Evolution Of The Gaiscioch Family

The Gaiscioch Family began November 11th, 2001 in Dark Age of Camelot on the Nimue server as a roleplaying guild called the Gaiscioch na Anu. Through their 5 year campaign the family grew to over 500 players. We began to lead armies into battle and conquered territories with great ease. Our true power came from being able to pull the Public Groups into an organized warforce. In 2005 the economy took a dive and a lot of our members lost their jobs and had to depart from the game. The family was carried on the shoulders of Aldenn the great who managed to keep it going into 2008.

After the collapse of the economy and the Dark Age chapter of our history, players scattered with the wind. Some grouped up and formed small guilds on Guild Wars and World of Warcraft to try to keep the family together. Neither of these titles held the interest of the family for long. In 2008 Caelliu, Breel, and Foghladha, the original founders of the Dark Age of Camelot family decided to give it another go with Warhammer Online.

The Gaiscioch became a smashing success as they shed their roleplay attitude for a casual approach. Shortly after the Gaiscioch entered into Tier 2 the Gaiscioch Trinity was born. This concept takes a premade warband and splits it into 3 filling the holes with the public groups. This formation allowed the Gaiscioch to unify the public group and turn even the most chaotic force into an organized and tactical group. At it's height the Gaiscioch led forces over 200 to siege and conquer territory.

Within the first 6 months the Gaiscioch reached 500 members and was forced to create the Gaiscioch na Anu to continue recruiting. By the time that Phoenix Throne was closed, Both Gaiscioch and Gaiscioch na Anu were full. Blocked, Keggan, Charmed, and Roont offered our brother guild Iron Legion to us to act as the 3rd branch of our tree. Upon moving to the Badlands server Iron Legion became Gaiscioch na Nuada.

The Gaiscioch would continue to grow as they launched the Battle for Badlands, public server wide community driven event. This event would grow beyond it's original vision to even be featured on GameTrailers's G4 TV fan made trailer contest, Massively.com, and gained exposure from several key Warhammer Online sites. The fame would bring with it the need to create a 4th Gaiscioch branch. The Gaiscioch na Sigmar was created and the Gaiscioch Family continued to grow past 1,600 characters, 600 players, and became a Warhammer Online legend.

It wasn't until the 1.4 patch, that the Gaiscioch would see a decline in numbers. With 1.4 the public group became the food for hunter and casual gamer suffered. The removal of the old siege mechanic slowed the oRvR driven family to a halt. This caused the Gaiscioch elders to start investigating other games to Branch into.

On the horizon sites 2 new titles that will be sure to have the attention of the Gaiscioch famiy. Already slated to form at launch is the branch into RIFT: Planes of Telara. The Gaiscioch were invited to alpha test this new title and later, Trion Worlds invited the Gaiscioch leader Foghladha and his wife to visit the campus and appear in the "Enter the Rift" video. Telara has captured the attention of every Gaiscioch that has touched it and a strong solid push is expected upon launch.

Down the road from RIFT: Planes of Telara's launch is the sequel to the smash hit Guild Wars. With the introduction of Server vs Server combat this game has huge potential with the Gaiscioch Family and is a sure fire expansion upon it's release.

While the games we play change over time, our legacy and the memories we provide people continue on past the life of a single game. Our open and welcoming approach has been recognized by many players years after they encounter us. We look forward to the coming years to help build new friendships, relationships, and continue our lasting reputation for being the group that looks out for everyone, not just themselves.
