[News] Another class graduating from NEW2!

March 22, 2013 By: Adrianas Category: Siege Perilous News

As some know there is a guild on Siege – originally NEW, now NEW2 – which offers 30 days of help, supplies, a place to log out, and so forth to players who have just created a character on Siege.  Even if a player is an old veteran on another shard, there are peculiarities to the Siege ruleset which sometimes takes a little time to get adjusted to.  Most PKs will not kill a player who is running with the NEW2 guild tag – or if they do, they often will not loot and will offer a rez and perhaps some friendly advice (like: “People don’t bank sit on Siege – if you need something, ask in General Chat”).

A player is only allowed to be a member of NEW2 for 30 days and after that the player “graduates.”  Tina Tink/Freja, who is leading NEW2, has set up “graduation parties” each month so that all can come and meet the new players and perhaps even recruit one or two into their guild or faction.  There will be a graduation TOMORROW – MARCH 23rd!  Her information concerning the graduation is below.  We thank Tina/Freja so very much for helping our community by running NEW2, despite the challenge of her living in Europe and yet working with many who play here in the U.S.  The times for this will be a little flexible – if you choose tomorrow to create a new player on Siege yourself, ask in general chat if it is still going on.  In fact, this would be a *great* time to create a new player on Siege – you can meet those who have gone through the 30 day process of learning about Siege, and perhaps join NEW2 yourself!

From Freja:

Hey All.  We will do this once a month, this time it’s our active members, who started 2013 feb month, who will be graduated. A list over the active members will come later. Feb members who already left to join a guild will be on the list too.
The event will be in 2 parts, to give all a chance to make it.

First part will start very early Saturday March 23, may still be friday for some. It will start 2 am Est, 8 am EU time and end at server down (4 hours)

Second part will start 2 pm est, 8 pm EU time and will last 4 hours too The event will be hold in my castle in Safe Haven and it will be public, all doors open. All are welcome and I hope all will have a nice day with our new Siege players.

It may also be the day for guilds to meet the NEW2 members and mayby recruit some for their guild.

If someone get bored and feel the need for fighting, the road outside is perfect for that. If someone not know, where to find my castle, just ask in gen chat, most know.

I really hope to see alot of the community find your way to my castle this day. The easy way to get there, at least if blue is to go to the NEW2 shop – Young Travelers Inn – in New Magincia and use the teleporter to my castle on second floor near the stair.

My castle is placed in Safe Haven, an old player town in east Brit, near the desert and the swamp. Follow the road from the desert east and when it turn south, you are near my castle, owner Freja.

Come in peace and hang out with us and your enemies. I ask nicely to take the fights outside, some duels on the road will be cool too.

There will be an event each month, 4th saturday in the month.

[RP News] Acoyltes of the Defiler

March 08, 2013 By: Adrianas Category: Siege Perilous News

A new roleplaying guild is forming on Siege Perilous!  The description given by its leader is as follows:

Greeting Siege Perilous,

We are a small band of murderous gargoyles who reject the Queens rule and her tolerance of outsiders in Ter Mur. We have exiled ourselves to the temple that houses the abyss entrance on your world and intend to use that area as a staging ground to protect our ancestral hunting grounds in the abyss. We have also linked our home there to the dungeon shame in an effort to recover the stolen artifacts of our people that are closely guarded by the elementals that reside therein. It is our intention to guard and hunt these areas as well as to gather other like minded gargoyles to our cause. We refuse to align ourselves with any of your warring factions and will engage all equally but hold a special place in our heart for the false servitors of the the defiler who have allied thierselves with the lesser demons that inhabit Hythloth.

More information may be found on this thread:


In addition to the return of many players, this new guild is welcomed to Siege!  All Hail Siege Perilous!

[News] An Interview with The Gladiator Sprago (I4NI Guild)

December 04, 2012 By: Adrianas Category: Siege Perilous News

A cool breeze blew ashore as I traveled quietly along the coast of New Magincia.  My heart pounded.  This would be my first interview as a reporter and I had been granted an interview with the leader of I4NI!  The distinguished house was well known in these parts – a wide assortment of vendors stood along one long side of the guild house, ready to sell their wares to any who needed them.

You have been made a friend of this house.

Inside, the guild house was well appointed – an ankh to resurrect those who might need it stood ready.   As long as I don’t need it, I thought. But the gargoyle Gladiator Sprago graciously welcomed me into his abode.  I took a deep breath, and began to ask my questions.

“When was I4NI founded?  Were you the founder?” I asked.

“It was founded about 2 years ago by my brother and myself,” he replied.

“Ah,” I replied, jotting down my notes. “And your brother is named . . . ?”


At that moment, near the back wall, I spied an elf named T.K.

“Ah!  Okay.”

“Was there some guild or player who inspired you to start the guild?” I asked.

“Well, it was a group decision,” Sprago replied.  “Soon after we moved to these lands, our [rl] family decided to follow.  Even my aunt lives here now.  Before, we lived on Lake Superior, and the guild had first existed there.  When we moved here, we decided to continue it.”

“I see,” I replied.  “That’s very interesting.  Was there any particular reason why you chose to join the Council of Mages faction?”

“Well at the time it was the smallest faction,” he replied.  “We didn’t want to join a zerg – we just wanted to live our lives here, in our own way and in our own style.”

“What would you say has contributed to the success of I4NI here on Siege?” I asked.  I could see the great gargoyle think a minute before answering.

“Unity and working as a team,” he replied.  “I feel we are all like-minded people who enjoy all aspects of our world – from crafting and hunting to defending the Council of Mages base.”

“Do you think there is anything that particularly distinguishes I4NI from the other guilds on the shard?” I asked.  Can a gargoyle blush? I thought.  And if they do, how could I tell?  Both Sprago and T.K. seemed at a loss for words.  Finally, after taking a deep breath, Sprago began.

“I feel that we are very close-knit.  We stick by each other, no matter how perilous the battle.  I am humbled by the courage that everyone in the guild shows – no matter what.  And we try to fight with honor – indeed, we try to bring honor to all that we do.  You’ll not hear us whining in the markets or town squares.”

Nodding, I scribbled down my notes.  “I must say that I had noticed this, before our interview.”

“Have you had any challenges – say, recruiting, desertions, or spies?” I asked.

“Recruiting like-minded individuals has always been a challenge.  We are always looking for more to join us.  We will help those who are still young, but there is also plenty of fighting and challenges for those who are older.  To my knowledge we’ve not had any spies.  We have had a few quit to join other guilds.”

“Do you have any events planned for the future?”

“We keep a calendar,” Sprago replied.  [www.i4ni.abyssportal.com]

I knew that the interview was winding down – I just didn’t want to miss anything!

“What do you feel is your greatest challenge?”

“Lag,” T.K. supplied.

Laughter echoed around the room.

“Just getting all of our guildmates on at same time,” Sprago answered.

I glanced around the room.  By now, there were four members of the renowned guild in the room.

“I see,” I said.

The interview at an end, I carefully packed my notes away.  Those in the room all waved goodbye to me as I left.

“Bye, welcome back anytime,” Baby Doll called after me.
