Lore: History of Guilds

|| _ ___ _o | | Announcements || || | | |...| |.| | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ || You probably all know a few of the Nightfallian Guilds. The famous Archmages, || | | |.o.| |.| | | Web Client || the powerful Sorcerers, the glorious Paladins and others. In this document, the || '-' '---' '-' | | Clients || history of those shall be written down to be saved for our descendants. It is || \| | Quickstart || said that there are several documents describing the foundation of the || | | Wait, What? || Necromancers, Vampires, Warriors and Paladins, thus, I'll only shortly mention || |o | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ || them when necessary. || | | Races || || | | Guilds || I want to start with the oldest guild in the realm of Nightfall, the || | | Map || Archmages. If they were ever founded or just existed from the very first day is || | | Lore || unknown, but it is known that they supported the realm of Myth Drannor since its || | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ || founding in 1337 BL and their members were mostly mages, although a few oglons || | | Who's Online? || are reported to have been Archmage, too. After the Dragonlance War, they || | | Finger || teached the humans willing to learn magic how to use its powers and accepted a || | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ || few of them in their ranks. That moment might be the birth of the Vampires, you || |/ | The Guide || can read a tale about them somewhere else. Additionally, the Necromancers were || |/ | Player Help || founded in 1003 BL. Due to the First Great War and the following siege of Myth || | | The Sky || Drannor, they moved their headquarter to a newly founded human city called || \| | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ || Caroba on the northern continent "Ellil". || | | Imprint || || | | || Shortly after the Humans settled on the southern shore of the Clondike, the || o| | || third magic guild was founded in 995 BL - the "Searchers of Magic". This guild || o| | || was totally dominated by humans, and, as usual for those groups, collapsed a few || | | || years later - the era of specialized magic guilds had begun! || |/ | || || |/ | || In 945 BL, the Conjurers were founded in El Essaman, a human camp in the desert, || | | || in 944 BL, the Sorcerers started to grow. The Enchanters and Illusionists || |o | || followed in 910 BL and 879 BL, both were afterwards not mentioned anymore, maybe || | | || you might find more information in their guildrooms. But the two guilds || | | || mentioned before, the Conjurers and the Sorcerers, were meant to become the most || o| | || powerful guilds all over Nightfall, they supported the Human kings in Nightfall || | | || City and still secure the Great Desert and the western forests. || | | || || | | || Another guild I want to talk about are the Bards, as they are the only guild || | | || found in the original Human realm, Avalon. They were probably founded around || | o | || 1100 BL, when the human tribes on those islands united and always supplied the || |/ | || main force in the Human army fighting in front of Myth Drannor. As King Arthur's || o s| | || reign started in 157 AL, they quickly showed him their respect, although they || o / /x| | || always tried to stay independent from the Avalonian court and thus moved to || \/ __o/xs| | || York, a newly founded city in Ireland, in 178 AL. || \/ \xx| | || || \ \s| | || Of course, thou all know this, there are other ways of living, like the rogues || \ /x| | || or strange thinkers, but unfortunately, little is known about those hidden || nmsxxsx| | || guilds making it impossible to write down anything about them. || xsxxxmxs| . | || || sxmxxxxmx| -_|= +---------------++----------------------------------------------------------------------------------++----nmsmmsmmmxmS ./_|=|_-_ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~{o}~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~{o}~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~{o}~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~{o}~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~{o}~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~{o}~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
