    Out of its chronological order, a person or practice belonging to an earlier time.

    Might be you've that Sony Walkman lying around somewhere.
    Maybe when first hearing of 'Lady Gaga' you laughed, started humming 'all we hear is radio Ga Ga'.
    Perhaps you prefer text over VOIP; tend to miss mirc or think fondly of it.
    You may wonder how come advancement's so often synonymous with over-complicating life and what for anyway; what are you missing?
    You're still around though, making do, on track, abreast of things? Still having plenty to show as it were?

    Well we do too. And we aim to present.

    Like Pantheon, we're of the past, loonily.. i meant happily existing in the present. We hold on to the old, selectively embrace the new. Nothing wrong with shiny!
    (if you're a fossil though, we can always compare shells. Tell us about your authigenic mineralization)

    We've been at this for some time now, had our back and forths, bonded through them, solidified.
    And we're ready to flood the gates! ..Pardon..? Oh, open the gates, why yes. Stop interrupting me, i lose track. Where was i again. Ah yes, the flooding.

    - We want boats; /thread.
    - We seek individuals possessing a sense of humour, an ounce of dignity, a sliver of ethos. We seek character and all it can bring to the table. Did i mention humour?
    - We're after people who can appreciate honesty, tolerate ideas or beliefs they may not share themselves. No one likes feeling constrained, so we give you the room we'd want you to give us.
    - We're looking for team players, tolerating the inevitable differences, capable of putting them aside for a common goal. We're in this together, we need know we can rely on one another.
    - Shinies! We'll be logging many hours and eventually tackling grouped content. Takes a different.. clientele for that league, granted, so you may be wondering how much we can really accomplish given our approach to recruiting. Well we're here to find out.
    - We value age, maturity, good intentions. We're after friendship, solidarity, that sense of nobler a purpose we've come to miss as we matured and wisened; or thought we did.. but let's not dwell there!
    - Impartiality's a must. You acknowledge i'm the prettiest Ogre to have walked on Terminus. Let me bat those eyelashes.

    Intrigued? Post below or PM me. I'll feign an interest, pretend i care. Really, you'd never know.

    1. What's your timezone?
    We haven't set one, we want to ensure there'll always be guildies you can group with no matter your time of day (we know what it's like after 01:00 or 02:00 AM) and we also wish to avoid reliving the past; no matter how well Pantheon does at launch, history (EQ, EQII, Vanguard) says eventually we'll be dealing with potential ghost EU servers. I wouldn't take that chance for myself again and i won't be taking it on your behalf either.
    I'm setting this up so we all benefit, with the added note that schedules being.. all over for some of us, you won't ever feel as if the guild consists of separate subgroups.

    2. Your stance on different playstyles? (solo, crafting, diplomat if we're lucky)
    A whole is always made up of smaller, distinct portions. I think it's regrettable we've come to distinguish between them in a manner that precludes one from coexisting with another. We need you as much as you'll come to need us. On a broader level a community is, again, made of many and distinct personalities. So to state what should have been obvious to so so many, no, not an issue at all. If you're happy with it, am happy as well. We're after people, not pixels :)

    3. Can i find you in the game now? If not, when?
    Most of us have Alpha passes so come that phase, by all means send me a whisper. If the reply makes you wonder who gave the dumb Ogre a keyboard and what were they thinking, you'll know you've found me. Bear in mind (why, that's a small bear mister!) i won't be held liable for loss of eyesight or related afflictions thereof.
    In the meantime, feel free to post something below? Get to know us!

    4. That logo looks awful!
    How dare you! My awe-inspiring artistic skills are beyond reproach, especially from the likes of.. you!

    I believe I could be the troll to your ogre (which I concede without hesitation, is the prettiest ogre to have walked on Terminus).

    I'm a fellow fossil - birthed in the dark reaches of northern Europe, who has lived for nigh on 35 rotations, and spelunked through the pixellated landscapes of Azeroth for more than a decade. Though my journey has occasionally seen me dip my toes in other worlds, I never quite found what I lost over the years: the sense of accomplishment and camaraderie that comes from braving challenges together with likeminded fellows, rather than having your hand held whilst enjoying the ride on the strict rails.

    If your company will have me then I will attempt to buff and heal my way into your hearts (while occasionally getting on your nerves).

    I want to play with people who don't get mad when you wipe 3 times. I want to group with people who let the rogue have the off hand weapon that looks cool. I want to be a tank or a necromancer when the necromancer becomes available. I also like the idea of the summoner. I don't like to zerg everything and try to play through the content as fast as possible. I dont want to play the game to be the first one to do all things in game and miss the content just to be first. I want to be an explorer of the content and discover it while chatting with other guild members whether they are in the group or just chatting. I want to stop doing my dungeon crawl because a guild member needs help. I want enough guild members online we can always put a group together to do content. I hope to hear from your guild on whether I should apply for a membership in Anachronism. My writing skills leave a lot to be desired and as english is my first and really only language my ability to speak is probably just as bad. I am an old man that likes to play games like a little kid when it comes to mmo's.

    He jests ^^

    Bad he says! Bad!

    You haven't heard me speak yet. Oooh no sir, not yet. Lord help you though, you will. You might come to reconsider then! .. Bad, he says ..

    I try to ease folks through first, you understand? Wouldn't want to scare them away now would i. A cunning plan that i have, all in all. I keep it a secret of course, best if not shared. Obvious reasons all in all.

    Let me PM you, we can pretend i have a mellifluous voice and you a most eloquent speech, a marvel of writesmanship if you will.


    * Your profile's private am afraid, cannot PM you. If not too much trouble, do consider making it public? I saw the email address, but i'd rather we talked from here if you don't mind.

    We welcome @tfrengler !

    Hairy and a Troll he might be, but when did i let that stop me!

    I mean.. yes.. inner qualities, that's it! Which i'm sure he has! Some of them, maybe. One thing at a time i always say. Anyways, glad to have you along! Are you by any chance photogenic?
