  1. 20 Years ago.... 20... That is probably a large chunk of many guardians lives. 20 Years ago Myself, Sir Lags A Lot and Yukon Bob created The Purple Guardians of Honor in the Ultima Online game engine.....first game of its kind and grand father to all MMORPG after it. Soon we met up with a wizard in training named Balandar, blacksmith named Rattlehead, Warrior Mage Moongem, Warrior Wolf, Mage Warrior Martok..Arthil...Scout....Brightblade, Coldren, Schneider...the list kept growing over time in UO until we were the dominant RP Event guild in Catskills. As other game engines spawned into existence....we launched a home in everyone of them. Some were fun and others ....ugh....toilsome. Game companies tended to chase the buck and please only the PVP and what I would call Raven players (pretty lights flashy flashy stuff)....games died. Galaxies held us until that was obliterated by the game company.....and then WOW held us and grew a new crop of players.....all whilst UO still lingered and moved along with RPrs staying and growing the guild in different ways. Players came and went their different ways but some always would pop back into a current game engine and give it a ride for a while....some still are enjoying the WoW engine and its gear ladder system. I do like seeing the movies and fun stuff people find and it is a cash cow for Blizzard. Many a great hour of fun I have had and many others still have with Blizzard and their game options. Star Wars resurged with Old Republic but just never developed options for guilds much as we dreamed of owning our own Star Destroyer or controll of a small planet.....maybe someday if we keep Balandar out of the engine room ...right Martok? 20 Years. THANK YOU GREATLY for enriching my life and friendships across this blue marble we live on....I truly am humbled to have had so many great people I can call friends and brethern in arms ...albeit gaming. Im 50 now....2/5 of my life has been involved with my extended family here in now what we collectively call THE HONOR EMPIRE. I hold all my brethren in adventure with great esteem and proudly call you all family to me until the day my server shuts down for the last time. New games are rising soon and none have a greater investment from the ancient guardians than Shroud of the Avatar ( https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/ ) where we have secured HONOR HOLD within the game as a destination site for the game engine. Balandar and myself have frequent conversations with Game designers including Richard Garriott and Star Long (Darkstarr) about SoTA. Events, quests, challenges, roleplaying, tournaments, combat or simple goofing off surely will be abound in the months to come and we have land for all the members of The Honor Empire that wish to maintain a home in HONOR HOLD. In 2018 we are working to coordinate a real world event at Sterling NY http://www.sterlingfestival.com/visit-us where the developers of SoTA will join us for the day of mead and entertainment across Warick, including a jousting event and meet and greet ...no gaming but discussions and enjoying the atmosphere of the festival. Other game engines of Chronicles of Esharia ( https://chroniclesofelyria.com/game/overview ) we also have invested in a future for our family of gamers with 3 mayorships looking to combine to create a large footprint for our members to be able to choose any kind of lifestyle within the game engine. Life is Feudal ( http://lifeisfeudal.com/ ) we have coordinated a membership within a large guild that will be launching and creating literally with mouseclicks (hands) everything from ground up....yes this is not for the faint hearted at toils. You start with nothing basically. There are many of us also that enjoy other game engines not MMORPG......combat simulations down to the phone apps. Even others of us are actually working together in the real world fighting against the bad part of gaming (sedentary weight gaining via lack of exercise)...as part of the IDLife Garrison...getting healthier and utilizing our teamwork (like gaming raiding groups) to increase our incomes. The key point is no matter what you enjoy playing.....The Honor Empire was built to so that you would always have a home to go to in a game to try it out knowing you had backup or security in numbers or help at the chat option from a friend that you may or may not have spent hours in the trenches with someplace else in the universe that is ONLINE GAMING!!!! Welcome home for all of you that have been busy with REAL LIFE.....and GREETINGS to all new players....I am looking forward to meeting and gaming with you. Just remember to keep it fun and leave the real world drama lamas behind ya.....purple lama vortexes are tough enough ingame to handle. Be good...or a bit naughty if needed.....HONOR is in many things and many views. See you on the inside.... STRENGTH AND HONOR!! FOR HONOR AND EMPIRE!!!
  2. 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.
  3. 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!!!
  4. I will be seeking to find the first edition NOT COPY versions of some we already collected....and soon player books will be added...as we are already finding some in game.
