About the Guild
Who is Black Sun?
Black Sun was formed in 2005 by a group of friends as a pre-release Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning guild. The guild was Greenskin themed and was known in-game as the Black Sun Boyz. The Black Sun Boyz remained as an active guild in Warhammer until 2011. During our time in Warhammer, the Black Sun Boyz focused primarily on open world PvP (RvR) and instanced PvP, while clearing all the PvE dungeons the game had to offer. Over the years Black Sun Boyz was also allied with numerous guilds with the purpose of victory through coordination. Through these alliances we made relationships that last to this day. We communicate with these guilds on a regular basis and work with them to increase enjoyment of the game for all the guilds and their respective members. Due to an increasingly lower server population most members of Black Sun Boyz moved on to various games such as WoW, Rift, Aion, SWTOR and Tera. Many of the original members have reorganized with the intent of moving into Guild Wars 2, thus finally making us a cross-gaming community. The guild name has now become game specific, therefore, as a collective we refer to ourselves as the Black Sun.
Black Sun and Guild Wars 2
Black Sun is reorganizing for the first time since leaving Warhammer in Guild Wars 2. Our aim is to retain the atmosphere that made Black Sun Boyz so enjoyable by encouraging an RP friendly environment. We are currently running under the name Black Sun Krewe. As the name implies, the guild is Asuran in roots, but this does not mean Black Sun Krewe is an Asuran only guild. This simply indicates that the foundation of the guild is from a few Asura which has since expanded. All races are welcome in Black Sun Krewe. We are currently finalizing guild lore to allow our members to RP themselves into Black Sun Krewe as they see fit. As a guild our focus will be on WvWvW and improving our notoriety on the battlefield. At times when there are no fights to be had, or people just need a break, we will look to be a competitive guild in sPvP as well as progress in dungeons. We will not ignore other game content but our focus will be improving ourselves in WvWvW.
Why should you join Black Sun?
Even though at times there was a lack of an organized guild with a set game to play, the thing that has allowed us to stay together was the friendships formed through playing games. In Black Sun we put emphasis on a tight knit gaming community who wants to improve as a group rather than dominance by numbers. Our core members are constantly available to game with and are always willing to game with new people. Although we strive to better ourselves in whatever aspect of the game we partake in we do not harbor an elitist mentality.
GW2 Guild Background
Our guild's back-story/theme, while still in development, currently consists of the following.....
The product of experiments gone horribly wrong, a master Asura and his apprentice are now shunned by the city they once called home. The Krewe was once a thriving Asuran organization, but their leader took matters into his own hands, with disaster being the result. It started with an explosion that blacked out the sun in Rata Sum for several days, for which the Krewe was jokingly called Black Sun, but the dangerous experiments continued to grow in scale and complexity. For these reasons, the Black Sun Krewe was forbidden from working in and around Rata Sum. Unable to recruit Asurans as readily as before, they turned more frequently to hired help, all the while becoming much more diverse in nature to the point where the Asurans became the minority. The time away from Rata Sum came at a great financial impact, so the master Asura began selling the services of the Black Sun to the highest bidder in order to continue to fund his experiments. Along the way, the Black Sun Krewe began to gain a reputation amongst its investors: Buyer beware, the Black Sun Krewe gets the job done, but expect a little havoc to accompany the results!!!
What are we doing to pass the time?
In addition to constantly talking about GW2, discussing builds and strategies for WvWvW, our members are currently playing together in a few games. We have quite a few people working on Hall of Monuments unlock in GW1 in coordination with friends in various guilds. Members are often seen playing together in Team Fortress 2 on a nightly basis, while also splitting time between games such as Minecraft and Terraria. We also constantly have several members on our Teamspeak 3 voice server. We invite you to come chat and game with us.
Age Policy and Roleplay
We don’t have a strict age policy, but we do expect members to adhere to a high level of maturity when it comes to representing the guild. Additionally, roleplay is not forced upon the members of Black Sun, but we encourage an environment where members should feel free to roleplay in any fashion they want. In regards to character names, the Black Sun expects that you name your characters with some sense of decency and in a race-appropriate manner.
