Mí na Samhna 2016

Cead Mile Failte!

Welcome and Happy Birthday to Gaiscioch! 15 Years ago on November 11th 2001 we opened the doors of Gaiscioch na Anu, our DAOC chapter. 15 Years later we have grown to a size I could have never dreamed of with friendships and memories being made daily.

I am so gifted to be able to share this journey with all of you and I look forward to sharing another 15 years with you. We are committed to keeping Gaiscioch alive and well and with your support and assistance this is a very achievable goal.

Over the past 15 years we have seen so many magical moments in Gaiscioch from the Telara Saga, Battle for Badlands, and Great Tyrian Adventure, to raising more than $31,000 for the Children's Miracle Network.  We have seen the birth of dozens of children, the unions of many of couples, and even laid to rest several of our most loved members. There have been laughs and tears over the years but the one thing that I cherish the most is the friendships we have forged.

We've been a big community, a small community and everything in between. We've bonded through siege warfare, raiding, and even coined a term called crifting in RIFT. We've participated in alphas, betas, and focus groups as our super secret knitting club and have even published our own magazine. We've taken to the air to broadcast entertaining livestreams and have formed small guilds in dozens of games to enjoy other unofficial adventures with friends.

The truth we have found is that anything is possible. Anything we set our mind to is viable with the support of the community. Our magazine alone speaks of that truth as it has recently been recognized as a member of the gaming press.

I welcome you to join me on November 12th at 5PM PT for the Gaiscioch State of the Family livestream and town hall meeting. You can tune in on Twitch or YouTube and ask questions that may arise. Lets kick off the start of our 15th year in true Gaiscioch fashion. We will be sharing our favorite moments of  Gaiscioch history.

GSCH Returns to RIFT

You may not have heard the news. With Siege Warfare (PvE Based) entering RIFT with Starfall Prophecies, we decided to give RIFT a try to see what kind of interest we would have. More than 100 people flooded to the community and it is actively growing. We decided to reopen it as a Legacy Chapter enabling claiming of Leadership, Fellowship, and Marketplace support using our new Legacy Chapter system built for ESO. If your looking to reconnect feel free to look up GSCH in the guild finder (Shift+G) or /chatjoin Tuatha to connect with the old crew. We even brought some new faces with us!

One Tamriel Launched

If you haven't checked out Elder Scrolls Online recently, now's the time to do it. One Tamriel made the game much more accessible and now you can group with anyone, from any faction, of any level and do things like Trials, Dungeons, explore any zone. The borders and walls have been knocked off and as a level 5 you can now explore any zone you like and do the quests there. This has opened the door for much more activity within the community. It is a free DLC so be sure to login and try it out.
