Why My Vanguard Guild Roxors (See Inside)

I belong to a wonderful guild called Blood Sworn on the Sereden server in the game Vanguard: Saga of Heroes.  The guild leaders truely care about their members and take great strides making sure that everyone's needs are met - whether it is help with a quest, harvesting advice, crafting knowelege, or just having something built by a master craftsperson.  There are no power-trips and no in-fighting - everyone gets along.  It's truely amazing!  The leader of the guild has established a website with forums, has set up a Teamspeak server for the guild's use, has established a Rank and File system wherein Officers are charged with specific duties such as recruitment, procurement, crafting, harvesting, and guild activities. 

And just when that seems like enough - the guild goes even further - and has pulled off a very difficult, time-consuming and expensive venture - the guild, with all of it's resources, has pulled together and built our very own Guild Hall!  It is a large Thestran style Guild Hall, located on an island off the coast of Thestra that we now call home - and it is just enormous!  See picture above, the Hall is located in the background.  Remember, just like all structures in Vanguard, this is NOT an instanced building - it is physically sitting upon the earth in that spot, and is 100% explorable and can be decorated.  The gate moves up and the doors open!

       

AND, just to prove how devoted the guild is to it's members, I wanted to show off the boat that was made for me by our wonderful guild crafters!  It's called a Kojani Sloop, and in my case, it is blue. 

          

Christened as Teh Minow, she is a sail ship, with a mast and wheel that I get to pilot.  Not only can I walk around on deck but so can a friend or two, come along with me on for a ride.  My buddy Kilomato Fear is aboard the boat with me in these pictures, as well as next to me in the other shots.  Teh Minow is capable of sailing in water up to 250 feet, so she's perfect for shuttling about Telon's lake system or even taking a short jaunt into the vast, and dangerous oceans (mainly for island hopping).  Other boats available in the game (larger ones) are capable of sailing the high seas and traveling betwixt the 3 large contenants and islands that makes up the game world...remember, which is NOT instanced!

I wanted to thank everyone in Blood Sworn for their help and time, and congratulate them on a job well done with the Guild Hall - not an easy feat by any means!  I look forward to our many journeys together!

My Vanguard House

Well it took quite a lot of time, money and help from my guildies in Blood Sworn but there it is!  You are looking at Somanthia's first in-game house in the MMORPG Vanguard: Saga of Heroes.  I also own the plot of land underneath it, much like you do in the real world, as well as pay a weekly upkeep much like a mortgage.

      

My house sits atop a small hill, overlooking the beautiful ocean, in an area called The Baraba Coast on the continent of Qalia.  All these photos were taken during the evening hours in the world of Telon.  As you can see I have quite a few neighbors in the area, including a guild hall which can be seen in the backdrop of  the third picture above.

  

Just like in the real world, you must build your house after finding and purchasing a plot of land.  Construction can be done in stages and can be completed by multiple people over a given course of time.  You must either be a crafter yourself, know a crafter, or hire a crafter or two to build most of the components needed for the construction.  Of course components are made from resources that are found, mined and processed throughout the large world of Telon.

  

My house is one of the less expensive therefore less featured homes available but it most certainly suits my needs.  Above are 2 interior shots of my new home, including some basic furniture, including tables, chairs, a bed, floor rug, a study area and food storage.  Notice the lamps providing light inside.  Houses and even guild halls in Vanguard are 100% non-instanced and are sitting before everyone in the game to see, much like SWG's housing.

Owning a little portion of Telon is a nice feeling, and affords a great sense of accomplishment.  It has taken me (as I'm more of an explorer) a year's time to finally get to this stage, acquiring money, making friends, and joining an awesome guild in order to get there.  Now all that's left is to buy myself a sail-ship and a flying mount - wonder how long that will take!

Thanks for reading!
