• The Honor Empire

    We are an online gaming community that spans multiple engines such as World of Warcraft, Ultima Online, SWTOR, Shroud of the Avatar, and several mobile apps. The Honor Empire was established on 10/11/1997 in Ultima Online with it's first guild; the Purple Guardians of Honor. In the last 19 years (two decades in 2017!) we have constantly maintained a home base forum for its members to chat and interact. Many have come and gone, but we still stand proudly to say we are THE HONOR EMPIRE... a community and family of gamers who just want to enjoy the time in the game industry together.

  • the-uo-logo-100.pngPurple Guardians of Honor is a large family of professionals who role-play within an Empire of HONOR that resides under the envelope of Britannia's current government in Ultima Online. The Empire is economically based, quest driven and exists as a defender against oppression and serves as the protector of the mother city of Honor, Trinsic. PGoH was established on 10/11/1997 on the Catskills shard. See our UO forums for news and updates.

  • the-swtor-logo-100.pngIn the darkness of a three hundred year exodus the Empire needed control and justice to survive. A band of elite peace keepers rose without impetus by the powers that be to create and help foster the stability needed for life in the cold reaches of the Unknown Universe.

    The band that rose was Vigilance in name and purpose. See our Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR) Forums here.

  • the-wow-logo-100.pngClan Skullcrusher is a World of Warcraft Horde guild on the Argent Dawn server.  We are among the longest running guilds on the server.(dating back to beta). Clan Skullcrusher has been built around a simple idea.  That is, to make the WoW experience the most fun and entertaining that it can be.  The guild is active in questing, exploring dungeons, raiding, pvping and otherwise enjoying everything the game has to offer. You can find our forums here.

      • Greetings travelers and adventurers... it is with great pleasure that I announce that the dynamic version of HONOR HOLD is open and ready for membership colonization.  Baron Balandar Ebonblack and his slave Naladinya along with Knight Marshall Schneider Dragonfang and his kin Christoph have completed the great walls of HONOR HOLD.   Recent additions of the GUST BALL field and the realms JOUSTING ARENA have been completed and await the upcoming Royals (Dev Team) Tournament.    The HOLD Pavilion is full of the highest level crafting stations and nearby is a magical vendor and general provisioner for supply item purchases for your trades work.    The HOLD Garrison (PVE) seeks Watchmen, Guards and Captains while the Church of Darkstarr (CHAOS) is accepting positions for aspiring Acolytes that seek to become monks Zealots priests or even the HIGH PRIEST or PRIESTESS and work directly with Lord Darkstarr (Dev) in maintaining his house here within HONOR HOLD.  There are additional higher level ROLE PLAYING positions that will coordinate with the city Governor on official realm events, coordinate with other cities, guilds and Royals (Dev Team members).  These positions from the simple town Jester, Tax Collector (housing assistant), Registrar (Jousting assistant), Jailor and Lord British's Stewart who will maintain his retreat home here in HONOR HOLD.    

        Hearty and the strongest souls with no fear of loss or bodily harm will be sought for the Elite Imperial Praetorian Guard (PVP) roles that will provide the ultimate defensive and offensive power of HONOR HOLD when needed to deal with unfriendly or nefarious bands of the realm populace.

        We have Elder Roles for those who grandmaster certain trade skills and these roles will come with a designated plot of land to build the respective building.  

        (PIC BELOW shows STATIC Locations) The highest RP role with most interaction with community and Royals (Devs) will be the Barkeep who should also be willing and enjoy using this forum as a mechanic to write, promote and record events and stories they work and develop.   Working with Baron Balandar Ebonblack on The HONOR EMPIRE Monthly Newsletter will be expected from all leadership or high level roles....to help you promote your story and adventures.

      • Whether it has been recently (Georges St. Pierre) or those that have been with us from earliest days (Wolf and Martok)....we have adventured across many a land, world, galaxy and universe.  Together we have shared victories and defeats, laughter and heated conversations, births of children and deaths of brethren.    No matter what the challenge though we faced them with great vigor and have accomplished what many never come close to.....building an everlasting guild of friends.....a new age family.   A combination of many approaches to game play; from the righteous to the dark forces always finding the place that we could rally around....true commitment to each other in whatever the challenge.   A strong and unbreakable bond that reaches beyond the pixels and cables to the real world where we meet and maintain friendships across the years.   I am so very lucky and feel greatly fortunate to have met all of you and to this day call you friend regardless of how long it has been since we adventured in-game or spoke in chat.   While the time still moves forward and memories may begin to fade; it always has been our hope that this website would be home for you to record those memories in pictures or stories so they would not be lost to the ages and vapors of time.  

        As this memo reaches all of you I hope you enjoy a moment of reflection on a great memory and time together.   Many game engines failed or fell to the ages of time and technology.  BUT....There are many more to come as the engines of adventure keep moving forward.  Even in our first world of adventure Ultima Online, PGoH still stands and maintains protection of Trinsic....to the CLAN SKULLCRUSHER, the great horde power within Argent Dawn Azeroth...amongst the stars of the Old Republic still some guardians still stand in VIGILANCE.   Now the Empire builds a new home for adventures within the walls of Honor Hold, a city in Shroud of the Avatar we actually own and manage.   The Honor Empire still grows and you are one of many!!!

        STRENGTH AND HONOR!!!

        FOR THE HORDE!!!

        SLAY ALL NOT SITH!!!

        FOR HONOR AND EMPIRE!!!

         

        Have a soda or cake today......nay......PIZZA and BEER in celebration of your 19th Birthday!!!!  heheh your finally old enough!!!

      • "The Battle.net name is no more. Today Yesterday Blizzard announced that it’s moving away from using the Battle.net moniker when referring to its online services. “Battle.net technology will continue to serve as the central nervous system for Blizzard games — nothing is changing in that regard,” the company wrote in a forum post. “We’ll just be referring to it as Blizzard tech instead.”"

        The community has come together to create an in-game system for tracking publications! The New Britannia Book Number, aka: NBBN. Reply to this post with the 5 digit identification you would like to be associated with.

        I have reserved the following:

        46667 - The Honor Empire ("Honor" converted to digits via the old phone system)
        16661 - Balandar (a bit sinister in nature and works well with 46667).

        [IMG]


        The NBBN consists of two sets of five numbers separated by a dash: 00000-00000
