Fighter's Guild

Aside from the faction and settlement groups, Shades of Immortality also holds four guilds of sorts. These function as the groups for businesses. To join these groups, contact an admin or a leader of the group. As always, this list may expand, and if you want to create a new guild, contact an admin!

While a character can be in only one faction at a time, they can join as many or as few guilds and groups as they want.

Located below Veldrea, connected to the Castle, you will find the Fighters Guild and the Arena. Here, great warriors of melee prowess are trained; their skills honed to perfection under the watchful eye of the Arena Master. You can use your HUD to travel to the arena.

The Fighters Guild is a neutral training school where we focus on physical fighting styles and weapons. All races, factions and alignments are welcomed.

The Fighters Guild puts on monthly Roll Call events where fighters are promoted, demoted and given ranks within the guild. There is a weekly fighter practice where players can spar against others to practice combat and styles, and once a month there is a tournament that will showcase the best fighters in the lands. Spectators are encouraged to attend events to cheer on their favorites. IC advancement in ranks does depend on the attendance of events in guild. Events will be scheduled for both EU and US players so that everyone has a chance to attend.

While free-form combat is highly encouraged on sim, Fighters Guild fighter practice, tournaments and boss battles will be based off of dice combat for ease of time and rules. Does this mean you can only use dice? Absolutely not. You can use whatever you like outside of these events. Just remember to honor other people's wishes. Not everyone likes free-form and not everyone likes dice.

You can brush up on your Combat Rules here.

To join the fight or if you have any questions, contact Sinryl.
