Deireadh Fómhair 2016

Cead Mile Failte!

Hello all my ghouls, ghosts and black cats! The spooktacular October has arrived and with it comes a whole lot of news! I'm gonna jump right in because this is likely going to be a long one.

Extra-Life 2016 - It's Go Time!

We have 1 month to try to hit our goal of $5,000 for the 2016 Extra-Life Event.  I believe we can hit this mark as we have in the past. We will be holding a 2 day, 12 Event game-a-thon across 6 games. Our current lineup includes daily events in Guild Wars 2, RIFT, and Elder Scrolls Online. We will also be scheduling events for Revelation Online, Warface, Warframe, Paladins, and World of Warcraft.


Breast Cancer Awareness Month - We're Pink Again!

It's Gaiscioch tradition that every October we go pink to show our support for Breast Cancer Awareness. You'll notice our emblems going pink this month. Show your support by dying some of your armor pink and be sure to post up those screenshots on Facebook :). It's a fun way that we can show our support for all those survivors out there.

Congratulations to Izmina and Shae!

This past week our very own Izmina and Shea tied the eternal knot and are happily enjoying marriage. There is a crowdfunding campaign open to send them on a proper honeymoon. Be sure to chip in if you can! Congratulations to you both! It's great seeing you two so happy!

East Coast Meetup

Join us on September 30th at 6PM at Fado's Irish Pub in Buckhead, GA for this year's east coast meet and greet! Last years event brought 12 of us together, let's see how far we can grow!

A Return to RIFT

Many of you may have seen my forum post about an organized return to RIFT in preparation for the new expansion scheduled to release later this year. Since I posted our roster has swelled to nearly 300 characters and we're starting to see some activity cropping up. We're actively searching for others that wish to play RIFT once again.

If we can exceed 100 active players I will be bringing RIFT's website features back online and relaunching it as a Legacy Chapter of Gaiscioch, similar to Elder Scrolls Online. If we can exceed 300 active players we can look at getting RIFT a full eldership team and look into reopening the chapter as Gaiscioch once again.

Through the years, we have never seen such a social friendly and Gaiscioch friendly game. It still today marks the peak of our community and with so many wonderful memories linked to it, I feel it would be good to return to RIFT as new players and learn the game once again with a fresh perspective and an open mind.

To kick things off we will be having weekly RIFT events on Thursday Nights.  They will alternate between 6PM PT and 11PM PT each week. I understand some of you won't be able to make the 11PM PT event and that's ok, I'm looking to rebuild our Oceanic presence and this is when they are playing.

Two New Thursday Events

Thursday Nights are about to get Social once again! We're relaunching the 6-8PM PT Social Adventures livestream in the format of rotating ESO and RIFT events. In addition the Side Quests livestream will host the Late Night Adventures of ESO and RIFT at 11-1AM PT.

Adventures in Telara

The Adventures in Telara will be a large scale public community event across Telara. During the event we will target Intrepid Adventures, Instant Adventures, Zone Events, World Bosses, and other large scale group activities. The Adventures in Telara will rotate every other Thursday from 6-8PM PT. The Late Night (Oceanic) Edition will Alternate every other Thursday from 11-1AM PT

Tamriel Adventures

The Tamriel Adventures kicks off with the launch of One Tamriel as we set off on a world exploration adventure closing dolmans, exploring public dungeons, and making friends. This event will be open to the public and I will be giving away special codes that unlock Mudcrabs to viewers and participants! Come join the Tamriel Adventures every other Thursday at 6-8PM PT or the Late Night (Oceanic) Edition every other Thursday from 11-1AM PT.

Gaiscioch Family News

Gaiscioch Family Promotions:

I wanted to take a moment to say congratulations to a few members this month for accepting their next credo and stepping into a new role in our family.

Guardians (Seaimpín)

The Gaiscioch Family Guardians are an advanced part of the Veteran Members group and serve as the front line of our family. They help newer members learn about the family, our website, and our belief system. They occasionally will need to help get conversations back on track, or report misdoing's to the family elders. They act as advisors, guidance providers, and overall protectors of the family name. By this time a member should be involved in the family for more than 6 months and has been an active attendee in family events. For those who prefer fellowship over leadership this is the last stop on the family tree. Members must prove their leadership ability to progress to the Leadership ranks through the accumulation of both Valor Points (Earned through leading events.) as well as earning Tokens of Valor from lower ranked members of the family.

  » Phloem

Veteran Members (Curadh)

Veteran Members have proven their devotion to the family by participating in events and contributing to the family's success. They have been active more than 90 days and have continued to be contributing members to the family.

  » Heymeow

Official Members (Lorgaire)

Official Members have earned the rank of Lorgaire and have accepted the Mark of the Kindred credo. They have officially decided to become members of the family and start their journey to ascend the roles of the Gaiscioch Family.

Elder Scrolls Online News

One Tamriel Arrives October 4th!

Been away from Elder Scrolls Online for a while? Left because you couldn't play with your friends? Perhaps the endless sea of Former Emperors turned you off of AvA? Good news! With One Tamriel the entire world is unlocked to any race, any faction, any level. Yes any level! You can login on October 4th and head to Craglorn with your level 6 and join a legion of GSCH as we participate in group content. Regardless of which faction you play you can travel anywhere you like, quest wherever you like and explore the full world of Tamriel.

In AvA, emperors no longer keep their buffs and skills after they get dethroned, skills have been adjusted to reduce the chances of finding a premade that can decimate hundreds and campaigns have been adjusted to allow or disallow champion points. This in turn has made AvA a much more pleasant place for the casual gamer. In addition Forward Camps have made their return except you must die within their radius to be able to use them. No more quick transport across the map. This makes it easier for a small havok group to do more damage before the zerg runs them over.

Join GSCH in ESO for some fun times without all the roadblocks that prevented us from playing together. ESO is finally going social!

Gaiscioch Magazine News

Help Our Magazine Survive!

In the past I've put calls to arms to try to get more writers involved, but not much has helped. This past magazine had a total of 5 authors. The majority of the stories were written by Ed and I and this pace is not going to allow us to survive long. If we want to keep this magazine going I need a few people to volunteer to write 1 article, guide, review, preview every 3 months.

Those who volunteer will have first crack at any exclusive opportunities our teams get which includes free games to review and exclusive beta opportunities. This magazine was created by our community for our community and while we began with a whole team of writers life has taken most of them away from us. We need help. You love games, we love games, write about them and let us publish your work and give you something to be proud of. Join the team today by contacting Foghladha at or on Discord.

Issue 10: Shipping Soon!

Keep your eyes on your mailbox! Issue 10 is nearly complete and once we have it online we'll shoot you off an email. This issue features one of my favorite digital artists Cris Ortega as well as interviews from several RIFT developers, a team of Twitch Streamers, and a pair of cosplay artists. In addition it covers PAX West and Gamescom and features previews and reviews for over 30 games! Be sure to check it out and share it with a friend.

Editors Needed!

If they're are editors who, would like to, help proofread are articles, we could greatly use more of you, and that would help us a lot in getting those magazines out at a good time, without having delays unnecessarily keeping us from meeting our deadlines. do ya feel me? Let me know if you read gud and we can get you setup.

Closing Notes

I am so happy that after this next week, my life returns back to normal with no more crazy schedules and trips. Hopefully I can get back into my groove and bring a bunch of the features I started over the summer to life. Some of my projects I'm still working on are:

  • The Magazine Site Login / Registration / Contests / Giveaway System
  • The Mentor System
  • The Mobile Friendly Alternate Navigation
  • New Signatures for Forums

In addition i'm hoping to get on a much more consistent schedule for events and be able to start spending time with you guys outside of my normal events. Thank you for putting up with me over the summer I know it's been a rough one. 5 trips in 6 months across 5 states takes a lot out of ya.

Slan Go Foill!
(Goodbye For Now)
