It's time to plan our November Golden Dragon newsletter. We haven't crafted a newsletter since April due to lack of time, so now it's back to work! The current plan is to try to churn a newsletter out a month, based on our guild's exploits of the past 30 days.
One topic I'd like to discus is the definition of a casual MMO gamer. In the article I'll discus the Tyrs rendition of the modern day casual gamer.
I'd also like to discuss our new plans for the Tyrs Fellowship. One goal is to find out the current representatives of each guild, be it guild leader or chosen representative, and to meet once a month on the Tyrs Airship Deck for a meeting!
I'm looking for some more topics. Any requests or ideas!?
Paks and Commodore are proud to welcome Lurlann into the highest rank we can grant a Tyrs Paladium guildie, a position never before granted to a non guild leader of Tyrs Paladium.
The Tyrs High Council consists of guild founders Paks and Commodore, and now Lurlann.
Lurlann has been instrumental as a behind-the-scenes think tank and we highly respect her opinion on many matters related to the present and future of Tyrs Paladium. Her loyalty and insight to the survival and betterment of our guild and the Tyrs Way is unquestionable and impeccable. Tyrs Guild Leaders, Officers and members of all four chapters, feel free to bounce ideas off of her as well.
Lurlann primarily plays DDO, so much of her expertise and insight has been within those "four walls". In her new role, she effectively joins Paks and I in the Tyrs High Council, and is our behind-the-scenes guru for DDO and her ideas may eventually carry over to Tyrs Paladium as a whole. Congrats Lurlann and thank you for your dedication!!

We clearly have a story to tell, and we've always believed we have a great name that represents what we stand for as a guild.
Tyr is the Faerûnian deity of Law and Justice. Since we have been in the position many times in game and on the official forums, to define why we care so much to defend honest play and camaraderie, we have made it our mission to create a family of gamers that can together as a team accomplish ANYTHING the elitist/all raid guilds accomplish, in an environment that's friendly, relaxed, fun and addicting.
Today, we remain one of the largest mid sized, longest lasting guilds in DDO. Why do I say mid sized? Because we have been extremely selective in who we hire. We hire on personality only. Its our guildies that should get the credit for our guild's reputation that they earned. Paks and I were there leading the way in the beginning, and throughout when necessary, but its our guildies today that lead the way. It's because of them why we became successful.
Paladium. The word Paladium is a play on Palladium... which we feel embodies a group of like minded people that come together to relax and have a good time. A Fortress which represents FREEDOM from the typical MMO gamer. And FREEDOM represents what some of our fine guildies have fought for in real life, in uniform. For them, we are truly grateful.
I hope that gives you a decent idea what TYRS PALADIUM is all about.
