Sacred Silver Blades is a good aligned PvP (Player vs Player) oriented guild. We populate gaming worlds selecting servers that best support this vision. In games that involve a division of races/classes (or any other qualifier) that can be interpreted as a "good vs evil" approach we will always be the "good" side.
SSB has been on the Archimonde server since release day. While not a "hardcore" guild, we are always trying to help ourselves and others advance through PvP and PvE.
- At this time, we are primarily doing Weekly raids and ICC10 each weekend.
- 1996, the Year of the Founding
Warz invites Revenge to Neverwinter Nights on AOL and founds the Sacred Silver Blades, called SSB. By the end of the year, the guild is close to 80 members.
- 1997, the Year of the Expansion
The guild grows to over 100 members Neverwinter Nights on AOL closes its doors in early summer SSB moves Lords of Empyria, and in the fall expands to Darksun Online as well. The end of the year sees SSB expanding into a multi-chapter guild and thriving.
- 1998, the Year of the Coup
The LoE begins to stagnate, yet the DSO chapter is thriving by late spring. The new website, Bladekeep.com is born. Starcraft as an activity takes hold, and a chapter is temporarily formed there. The guild establishes a presence in UO on the Pacific and Great Lakes Shards. An Ultima Online chapter is is consolidated in the late summer on the Great Lakes Shard. Membership presses for governing changes in the Monarchy guild structure, and a Council system is voted into place, abolishing the monarchy from SSB's structure.
- 1999, the Year of Change
The very beginning of the year sees Lords of Empyria dumped by SSB as UO grows in popularity. An Everquest chapter is opened in March upon its commercial release. Cazic Thule is our home in EQ. The DSO chapter begins to slowly vacate, and SSB officially closes it by early summer. The Starcraft chapter is finally dropped by late summer as only a few members are still active. By the end of the year, the guild is evenly split between Ultima Online and Everquest, with over 160 members.
- 2000, the Year that Nothing Happened
Ultima Online and Everquest continued to maintain pace for SSB, both popular chapters. Diablo II is played by a number of SSB as a side interest, and tested but denied as an official chapter.
2001, the Year of Camelot SSB was chosen as 1 of 83 guilds (out of 700) for DAOC's Guild Beta after a number of members participated in previous private betas. In October the guild officially colonizes the Bedevere server as Hibernians.
- 2002, the Year of Outposts
The UO chapter is slowly dying with a number of GM changes early this spring. SSB remains strong in Everquest and Dark Age of Camelot this entire year. Neverwinter Nights by Bioware is released, and an outpost is opened and closed within a few months. SSB beta tests Earth and Beyond by Westwood Studios, and opens and closes and outpost here as well. In November, the UO chapter is finally closed after 4 years of life.
- 2003, the Year of the Lightsaber
SSB began testing Star Wars Galaxies early this year, and opened a chapter on Bria when SWG released. The DAOC chapter remains strong this entire year. The Everquest chapter is closed in the late fall of this year, marking a 5 year run as SSB's longest chapter.
- 2004, the Year of Worlds
SSB remains active in Dark Age of Camelot and Star Wars Galaxies. Some side interests are explored as potential homes, noteably Lineage II and PlanetSide. Everquest II beta begins, and an SSB Chapter on the Permafrost server opens. Worlds of Warcraft beta begins, and an SSB Chapter on the Archimonde server opens. The Star Wars Galaxies outpost closes as members leave for other games.
- 2005, the Year of the Split
SSB is active in Everquest II, and World of Warcraft. Middle-earth and Dungeons and Dragons are previewed as potential future chapters. SSB activity in Dark Age of Camelot dwindles is reduced to Outpost status. A series of events occur over a several month period, which leads to many long standing members departing. SSB Site is moved from Bladekeep.com to Sacredkeep.com. SSB Activity in EQII never reaches anticipated level and the Chapter officially closes in Oct. Increased interest in PvE leads to the inhabiting the Kilrogg Server in WoW. 1 guild, 1 game, 2 servers.
- 2006, the 10th Anniversary
SSB is invited to Beta test Pirates of the Burning Sea. The PvE chapter on Kilrogg (World of Warcraft) fails to emerge and as viable option, solidifying SSB's stance as a PvP oriented guild. The Dark Ages of Camelot outpost closes as members leave for other games. SSB beta test Lord of the Rings On-line.
- 2007, the Beginning of the Second Decade
World of Warcraft continues as an active chapter with the majority of the gaming membership residing there. Lord of the Rings On-line goes live and a small contingent of SSB makes it their home.
- 2008, the Expansion
World of Warcraft celebrates its fourth year and remains as SSB's primary home. Many new worlds emerge; Age of Conan, Warhammer Online, and a brief foray into O-Game to name a few. While there is initial interest all the new worlds, only Warhmmer Online joins WoW with an active membership going into 2009. Pirates of the Burning Sea and Lord of the Rings Online are frequented by a small contingent of SSB, but participation is extremely small
Weekly raid schedule
To be posted.
- 1. Promote the Sacred Silver Blades whenever the opportunity presents itself. An effort needs to be made to enlist only quality people into our guild. If you are approached by a likely recruit, ask the individual why they are interested in joining (this should only be done after gaming with that individual for a while). If the prospect shows continued interest, forward them to the website where they can fill out the application, register on the guild boards and introduce themselves. This application is entered into a database and maintained for record, a post is made in the administration board, and the appropriate Guild leader is notified (chapter/game dependant).
- 2. If possible, stockpile choice items for other guild members, but only if you do not use them. You are never required to give items away, but giving unneeded and/or rare items to the SSB vault is a very helpful deed for the newer or less advanced members.
- 3. Help even non-guild members whenever possible, and give unneeded items to new players whenever you can. Remember new characters need all the help they can get and this is wonderful guild promotion.
- 4. Read and post on the guild boards. Keep in mind that for SSB to maintain a strong guild, it must have active members. It is requested that all guild members post at least twice every week (this is on honor). Remember this is important and needed to maintain our communication. The above requirements are a minimum and everyone can make as many quality posts as they see fit.
- 5. Participation in the role-play folder is optional. It is required that all posts to the RP board be in role-playing format since this is a separate board. Your posts may consist of exploits in the realm, requests for advancement, almost anything guild-related.
- 6. SSB recognition: Wear the Guild Colors (Blue and Silver). It is not required, but will assist in recognizing guild members on the battlefield during times of war. It is also required that you have your rank and/or position in your character description if possible. This assists new members to the guild, and assists outsiders that know of SSB.
- 7. Rules of Law. All matters requiring a decision affecting the guild as a whole or its structure will be brought before the High Council. Any member whose behavior is deemed by the High Council and/or Game Council to reflect negatively on, or not otherwise in the best interest of the Sacred Silver Blades, is subject to disciplinary action, up to and including explusion.
- 8. Hacking is not accepted at all. Any member found to be knowingly using/distributing/or developing any item, material, or software which is hacked, or that illegally alters any portion of any game will be dismissed.
- 9. Common sense and courtesy will rule. SSB is a good/helpful guild and you should display this in your actions and speech. This includes your actions and comments on any public forum .
- 10. The Sacred Silver Blades is designed to be an “all-inclusive“ guild. In game worlds where there is an official SSB presence, it is expected that a majority of your online game time be spent with SSB in the official chapter. The avatar that most closely reflects your Guild Board Name must be tagged SSB. Membership in another guild on this server is discouraged and subject to approval of the Game Council. Detagging any SSB tagged Avatar without prior coordination with the appropriate game council will be seen as quitting SSB.
- 11. PvP. This decision is left up to each individual, and will not be mandatory or restricted regardless of level, rank, or position. Keep in mind we are a good guild and your battles should reflect this. When a guild-mate is in PvP distress, all reasonable efforts should be made to assist.
- 12. Enjoy! The whole idea behind this guild is to enjoy the friendships made and shared through combined adventuring, role-playing, and teamwork. If we cannot achieve this then all else is a failure as well.
