• About Us


    Established on October 11th 1997, The Purple Guardians of Honor (PGoH) became the Protectors of Trinsic, the city of HONOR Virtue within the Catskills shard of Ultima Online by Richard Garriott’s OSI team.

    The membership grew outward across multiple game engines as the MMORPG genre exploded across the internet; establishing itself in Star Wars Galaxies & The Old Republic, Shadowbane, Everquest, Dark Age of Camelot, ArcheAge and World Of Warcraft.  

    All providing a home base for members to enjoy gaming together in a new experience and sometimes with different forms all together….all bound thru HONOR!!!

    Now…. here, today the immortal souls of these great past champions of HONOR are called upon again as the rally call from horns and war drums resonate thru the many universes and break upon their doors.   Who will answer this call sent forth from Lord British and Lord Darkstarr? They have again used their powers of creation to open a new world in need of souls daring and bold enough to face the unknown with HONOR!!!

    HONOR HOLD has been established upon the continent of Novia, south of Brittany and standing strong to keep the ever challenging dark forces of the Necropolis from reaching the capital city and its southern fertile lands. HONOR HOLD is also the realms arena for the sport of Nobility, Knights and Kings…. JOUSTING!!!  Here are the Lords Lysts, where Champions of Lord British and Lord Darkstarr compete against each other amongst the realms great Knights and Nobility (Founders). It is here also where aspiring souls seeking to establish themselves and gain Papers of Nobility (Knighthood) by winning a tournament with HONOR thru the official monthly Jousting events.

    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)

    HONOR HOLD hopefully will grow and expand to become a “Crossroads” to provide even more housing lots and growth outside the walls of HONOR HOLD… just as a growing area would do; bringing more “life like” feel to the area.  The historical record shows The Honor Empire was created long ago by great Blacksmiths, Miners and Craftsmen that supplied the forces of HONOR HOLD. Many mysterious items have been discovered within its mines and incredible recipes as well…rumors persist that a vast town exists beneath the mountains Honor Hold is cut from. The strong connection to Earth and Fire magic fuels these rumors along with strong rumbling within the ground itself that can be felt by travelers nearby.  Passed off as just tremors from the lava flows to the west; one can never be too sure the more stories you hear within the walls of HONOR HOLD.  

    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?
