  1. Salt ftw!

    The amount of people who are asking me to murder the poor lass is remarkable. One has to wonder how she won, considering.
  2. I very rarely troll people, good sir. Far too much of that already existing on the internet. Yes, you can safely assume the Alchemist's Guild do not have a seat on the Shadow Council.
  3. ...perhaps not. Worth mention that having a team in the game at present does not equate to a place on the shadow council. At present, I count mentioned by name Butchers, Morticians, Fishermen, Astronomers, Engineers, and Messengers. Blacksmiths were only fairly recently confirmed also.
  4. Falconers!

    100% confirmed. Seenah has a doctorate in Thuganomics
  5. Falconers!

    Morning guys! Just a quick update - at the SteamCon US we had a couple of art briefs with older (and incorrect) names from Doug. The correct names for these players are Minerva (Minnerva), and Mataagi (Falcon). Sorry for the mix-up. If any of you guys had seen my hastily concealed look of confusion last night, I imagine it was quite a picture!
  6. General Question about Death on the Pitch (fluff)

    Nope. It's safe to say that so far the Hunters have shown no interest whatsoever in the machinations of the other Guilds. By nature, the Hunter's Guild are very different to each of the others, having only recently come to the sport and with barely any of the unspoken agreements or understanding existing between the other Guilds. And some players, like Hearne have their own issues - it's entirely feasible that his actions could have indicated a darker twist in his personality as he struggled against the Winter Queen's influence. Will this change? Well, Obulus' letter might well have something to do with that...
  7. Wake up and smell the chains!

    No comment..
  8. Proposal about Harry...

    #vengeanceforquistis just became my favourite thing about this campaign. You guys are awesome.
  9. An unexpected ally.

    I'd wondered how long before the canny Farmer and Blacksmith players started negotiating their services to the other Guilds. Just make sure you earn yourself that influence or coin you're in need of...
  10. Let's Bring Decimate Home, Laddies!

    Leadership struggles between rivals may be one thing, but there's only one true Usurper...
  11. Hemlocke not Minx?

    This would be correct.
  12. WTC Friday Night GRUDGE MATCHES

    Sounds good to me... you guys might be the first to see some interesting new sculpts too.
  13. Scholar's Guild Summer Challenge Results

    I'm glad that you did. The touch of humour you injected into the piece when Toolbox was searching for something to use against Boar was a very nice touch - not overstated, just subtle enough to earn a chuckle and then move on with the story so that the pace kept up. Great work! I really hope that this is encouragement to keep you writing!
  14. Scholar's Guild Summer Challenge Results

    I look forward to it. The best part about events for me is having the chance to speak with our fans that really enjoy the world and characters in it, and the seminars are always a lot of fun. You guys really humble me with your enthusiasm. With regards to Red Skies at Dawn, I really enjoyed how you captured Honour in your story, I think you smashed your take on her character out of the park.
  15. Hi guys! Firstly, a big thank you to everyone who took part in the Scholar's Guild Summer Challenge. It's been great to see so many of you get involved, and I've had an awful lot of fun reading through your submissions. I especially loved how several of you interwove existing characters and the Guild Ball universe into your stories, often in subtle and characterful ways. Choosing winners was very difficult as so many entries were of a very high standard, but I've read through them all and posted winners below. Congratulations to @TwoBands, @Paelan, and @Cutegoth13! 1st Place - Red Skies at Dawn, by TwoBands. 2nd Place - Bag of Tricks, by Paelan 3rd Place - Waiting for the Wheat Poppy to Ripen, by Cutegoth13 Also, just a quick shout-out to the following - each of your stories were extremely close to the top three, and I wanted to just give you a well-deserved word of appreciation. Seyfret, Astronomer Savant, by Siberys A Rookies Reflection, by Charlie Call of the Wild, by Lumpyseven Welcome to the Big Leagues, by Redtiger7 Thanks everyone for taking part, and I look forward to the next one!
