Historical Chapter 2: Warhammer Online (Return of Reckoning)
Welcome to the home of the historical chapter of the Gaiscioch in Return of Reckoning. Warhammer Online held a significant role in the rebirth of our community in 2008. What began with 5 members turned into a titan than spanned 4 full Warhammer Online guilds. At its height the Gaiscioch held more than 800 active members on the Phoenix Throne and later Badlands server.
We led an epic community event series titled Battle for Badlands which pitched weekly Order leaders against Destruction leaders in an all out war. These battles included hundreds of players each week.
Today, we have been fortunate to find a way to return to Warhammer Online in the form of Return of Reckoning. Our historical chapter acts as a launching ground for new adventures and the ability to introduce people to the classic.
Receiving an Invite (Joining)
There are a few ways one can join the community in game.
Joining the community
To join the Gaiscioch Community head over to https://warhammer.gaiscioch.com/ and fill out the form on the right hand side. Instructions will be sent to you on how you can register for our website and officially join the community. Alternately you can find this information in game as the Guild MOTD. Website registration is not required however members will remain as Guest rank until they are registered.
The Guild Structure
The Gaiscioch Family is well known for going big. We are like a magnet to like minded players and we typically grow at an alarming rate. Within 2 months of returning to Warhammer Online we crossed 300 characters in our primary guild Gaiscioch. To avoid hitting the hard cap of 500 we preemptively launched Gaiscioch T1 which will be home to our Tier 1 activities. At the end of March we formed the Tuatha Alliance which houses our multiple guilds. This allows us all to communicate with each other in game using the Alliance chat.
The home of our Tier 2-4 players. Players can get an invite in game by typing "/3 Gaiscioch Invite Please". All players can invite to the guild.
Gaiscioch T1 (1-15)
The home of our Tier 1 players. Players can get an invite in game by typing "/3 Gaiscioch T1 Invite Please". All players can invite to the guild.
Ranks & Roles
The guild rosters are parsed regularly and members who have claimed their characters will be promoted in game to their appropriate role.
Roster Setup: Member Note
Please take a moment to right click on your characters on the roster and set your member note to your Gaiscioch.com handle. This will allow me to identify you and promote you to the correct rank while we wait for the syncing script.
The Alt Policy
If you'd like to bring your alts in we ask that you please do. We're happy to have all 18 alts if you like. We will however begin rotating characters out of Gaiscioch and Gaiscioch T1 when we hit 490 characters based on when they were last played.
While we ask that you do not spam chat channels asking people to join our community we do encourage you to link our guild in chat using the Recruit tab of the Guild Window then click "Link to Guild" when hosting open events. Messages like "[Gaiscioch] Invites you to join us for T1 RvR in Dwarflands." are acceptable. We do not want to push our community on others, but we do want to ensure our community is seen. We are quickly becoming one of the largest communities in RoR and it wont be long before we wont even have to say things without people wanting to join.
By the time we reach 450 characters in roster we hope to have Gaiscioch T1 ready for service and we'll move all our T1 characters there. This will free up more room in the primary room for T4.
IMPORTANT: Primary Guild Chat
With our Dual Guild Structure we use /as or Alliance Chat as our guild chat. Please be sure that when you wish to talk to guild you use /as instead of /gu. This will include both guilds that make up the Gaiscioch Family and players who are playing their Tier 1 alts can participate in the discussion.
Guild & Voice Communication
The Gaiscioch Family is a world wide social gaming community which provides a family friendly environment for players of all ages to enjoy the games we play. To respect our family's' little eyes and ears we ask that all members keep public discussion in guild channels, alliance channels, public chat channels, and in voice services PG at all times. We have however made special adults only, mature, or pub channels for respectful adult conversation available in our voice chat. Be respectful and don't teach our little Gaiscioch Jr's a new vocabulary.
