Looking For A Guild

A guild is someplace which is supposed to feel like a second home. You're probably looking for a guild that will have that feel to it. If you are, then here are some tips while searching for a guild. The Neoboards are the most obvious choice. Still, a lot counts on about what criteria you write on the boards that will help you find a nice guild for you. You're probably going to spend a lot of time on the Neoboards when finding a guild, and some criteria to mention are...

The Snowager

Most refer to him as “The Snowager”, but you can’t honestly say you know for sure if that’s his name or not. I mean, his name could actually be something simple like Bob or Icey, or perhaps Mr. Grumps since he obviously does not enjoy a bit of companionship when you care to drop in and say a polite old, “Hello Chum! How are the toys festering today?” But of course, that is quite reasonable for a big old icey monster. But is he really a monster? Is he really a mean...

He still remembers the real invasion of his own loved country, Meridell, and sometimes the lines blur a little...

Bonju pushed past Hoban with a stack of plates in his hands, sending the Navigator reeling against the opposite wall. "Watch it!" he called, but the chef paid no attention and vanished inside the kitchen. Sighing, Hoban glanced towards the table. A single plate was left, with a meager assortment of a quarter potato and a tiny, neopoint sized slice...

"A Good Day" by whiskerun
"My owner - well, my old one - abandoned me like I thought he would." For a moment Fang was speechless. He didn't know what to say; he remembered the day after he met Sierra, about three months ago, when she told him that she thought her owner was going to abandon her. And now... he had? But the pink Gelert just started laughing. "No, don't..."
