• The Honor Empire

    New and Old souls are sought to join The Honor Empire to stand up to defend HONOR HOLD and support its garrison as it is called upon against the dark forces of the realm.  Artisans, Tradespeople, Spell-casters and Adventurer souls are all welcome as well as those that would stand in the garrison.  We have lots ready for your home construction as well as “realm” roles within HONOR HOLD that require great commitments and ability (Role-playing). Our goal is simply to provide a home for our past, present and future friends that they can enjoy the SHROUD OF THE AVATAR Game experience free of drama-lamas in a mature guild of gamers.  Would you like to join us?

      • Greetings travelers and adventurers... it is with great pleasure that I announce that the dynamic version of HONOR HOLD is open and ready for membership colonization.  Baron Balandar Ebonblack and his slave Naladinya along with Knight Marshall Schneider Dragonfang and his kin Christoph have completed the great walls of HONOR HOLD.   Recent additions of the GUST BALL field and the realms JOUSTING ARENA have been completed and await the upcoming Royals (Dev Team) Tournament.    The HOLD Pavilion is full of the highest level crafting stations and nearby is a magical vendor and general provisioner for supply item purchases for your trades work.    The HOLD Garrison (PVE) seeks Watchmen, Guards and Captains while the Church of Darkstarr (CHAOS) is accepting positions for aspiring Acolytes that seek to become monks Zealots priests or even the HIGH PRIEST or PRIESTESS and work directly with Lord Darkstarr (Dev) in maintaining his house here within HONOR HOLD.  There are additional higher level ROLE PLAYING positions that will coordinate with the city Governor on official realm events, coordinate with other cities, guilds and Royals (Dev Team members).  These positions from the simple town Jester, Tax Collector (housing assistant), Registrar (Jousting assistant), Jailor and Lord British's Stewart who will maintain his retreat home here in HONOR HOLD.    

        Hearty and the strongest souls with no fear of loss or bodily harm will be sought for the Elite Imperial Praetorian Guard (PVP) roles that will provide the ultimate defensive and offensive power of HONOR HOLD when needed to deal with unfriendly or nefarious bands of the realm populace.

        We have Elder Roles for those who grandmaster certain trade skills and these roles will come with a designated plot of land to build the respective building.  

        (PIC BELOW shows STATIC Locations) The highest RP role with most interaction with community and Royals (Devs) will be the Barkeep who should...
      • Whether it has been recently (Georges St. Pierre) or those that have been with us from earliest days (Wolf and Martok)....we have adventured across many a land, world, galaxy and universe.  Together we have shared victories and defeats, laughter and heated conversations, births of children and deaths of brethren.    No matter what the challenge though we faced them with great vigor and have accomplished what many never come close to.....building an everlasting guild of friends.....a new age family.   A combination of many approaches to game play; from the righteous to the dark forces always finding the place that we could rally around....true commitment to each other in whatever the challenge.   A strong and unbreakable bond that reaches beyond the pixels and cables to the real world where we meet and maintain friendships across the years.   I am so very lucky and feel greatly fortunate to have met all of you and to this day call you friend regardless of how long it has been since we adventured in-game or spoke in chat.   While the time still moves forward and memories may begin to fade; it always has been our hope that this website would be home for you to record those memories in pictures or stories so they would not be lost to the ages and vapors of time.  

        As this memo reaches all of you I hope you enjoy a moment of reflection on a great memory and time together.   Many game engines failed or fell to the ages of time and technology.  BUT....There are many more to come as the engines of adventure keep moving forward.  Even in our first world of adventure Ultima Online, PGoH still stands and maintains protection of Trinsic....to the CLAN SKULLCRUSHER, the great horde power within Argent Dawn Azeroth...amongst the stars of the Old Republic still some guardians still stand in VIGILANCE.   Now the Empire builds a new home for adventures within the walls of Honor Hold, a city in Shroud of the Avatar we actually own and manage.   The Honor...

        The community has come together to create an in-game system for tracking publications! The New Britannia Book Number, aka: NBBN. Reply to this post with the 5 digit identification you would like to be associated with.

        I have reserved the following:

        46667 - The Honor Empire ("Honor" converted to digits via the old phone system)
        16661 - Balandar (a bit sinister in nature and works well with 46667).

        The NBBN consists of two sets of five numbers separated by a dash: 00000-00000
