JOIN OUR GUILD!
"Within the world of Tyria, battles rage as surely as forge fires burn, tempering warriors into heroes. There are those who fight for power, for honor, for glory or for salvation. No matter the call, what they seek is greatness; and amidst the din of warfare there are those that will rise from the ashes to stand above all others. Do you have what it takes to stand with those whose names echo throughout the Hall of Heroes?"

10/29/09 - Forum

The forum is setup though I was unable to restore the old files, why it has a backup and restore facility is beyond me as it never works. It's nothing special at the moment but I'll work at making it look like a part of the site later.

10/26/09 - New Server!

Welcome to the new server, we're sorry for the delay in getting it back on-line but we encountered problems. Put simply the new server did not like the file formats of the old pages or some of the script used on all 200+ pages, It was the matter of changing all the pages which caused the unexpected delay getting the site back on-line.

Unfortunately the forum is not back on-line just yet, we still have several things to sort out before we attempt to install and restore the forum. I will be trying to get it back on-line this week and will be working closely with Uncle to ensure it goes as smooth as possible.

If you notice any dead links or errors please let me know at the usual address.
