General Guild Info
The Gaiscioch Social Gaming Community began as a social gaming community in the industry pioneering MMORPG Dark Age of Camelot. We began on the Nimue server on November 11th, 2001, with a focus on creating a fun and enjoyable community for players of all ages and skill levels.
The Gaiscíoch takes it's name from the Irish legends found within the "Cét-chath Maige Tuired", "Lebor Gabála Érenn", and "Cath Maige Tuired" which chronicles the first people of Ireland the Tuatha de Danann. Specifically the First Battle of Moyturna where the Tuatha de Danann hand-picked the most honorable and loyal warriors to fight along side the Celtic gods in a battle against the Fir Bolg. These Warriors were known as the Gaiscíoch.
With our roots firmly attached in the Celtic Mythological Cycle, the Gaiscíoch hold honor, respect, integrity, and fellowship, over hierarchy and dictatorship. Today the Gaiscíoch family spans many games, sports, and social circles.
We are a social casual gaming community with a relaxed approach toward gaming. We allow our members to play how they want, when they want, as long as they want, and do not constrict them with quotas or requirements. It is through gaming, athletic competition, and social interaction that we forge new friendships and relationships.
Guild Wars 2 Info
Gaiscioch began following Guild Wars 2 in 2007. A Gaiscioch event leader by the name of Roger "Oldroar" Rall took it upon himself to follow the progress of the title and report it's growth back to the eldership team. As years went on Oldroar grew more and more excited up to the point where he recommended I go to PAX Prime 2011 to introduce ourselves to the team. Sadly, less than a month after we visited PAX Prime Oldroar passed away suddenly just 2 months before we were granted access to early focus group testing. Oldroar would never be able to play the game he was so passionate about but ArenaNet made sure he was not forgotten by naming a server Sanctum of Rall and erecting a living tribute to him in the form of Historian Goshkia in the Black Citadel that tells his story.
To say our chapter in Guild Wars 2 is personal is an understatement. We are deeply vested in this chapter and plan to keep it running as long as Guild Wars 2 is online. Our community focuses on hosting public events open to all players in Guild Wars 2 ranging from person vs environment map clears, walkthroughs, and world boss hunts to world vs world battles on a grand scale.
Gaiscioch began leading their widely popular Great Tyrian Adventure in 2011 and have seen 4 very successful seasons since. Each of these seasons awarding Legendary weapons and a treasure trove of giveaways to our attendees.
We are casual friendly and maintain a mature community lifestyle that is family friendly and helpful to new players. We have daily events, a full community marketplace, and even feature guides and previews in our Gaiscioch Magazine. If you're looking for a helpful group of mature adults to share your adventures with, be sure to reach out to us because we'd love to have you on board.
