- Support and participate in all scheduled guild activity (if I'm online) as a courtesy to the Shogun council member leading the activity.

- Help assist the guild roster, recruitment and daily activities, always striving to make guild activities fun, active and friendly to all.

Tell us something personal about yourself:

My name is Chloe, and I'm 23 years old. I'm located in Memphis, TN, but am originally from NY. I'm currently halfway through my Master's program in Biomedical Engineering. After I graduate, I hope to be accepted into a MD/PhD program where I will spend the next 8 years or so. When I'm not in classes or in the lab or working or volunteering, I enjoy participating in raids and fun new content in GW2, spending time with my pets, exercising, and riding my motorcycle.


Tell us about your history with the guild (when and how you joined the guild):

I joined DR after an extended break from GW2 in the spring of 2013. My previous guild had disbanded while I was gone, so I pretty much joined DR on a lonely whim. Caustic recruited me and taught me all about WvW, and I've been playing casually ever since.


Tell us your most memorable moment(s) about the guild:

Pink WvW runs, naked dance parties, fashion contests, simon says, and hide-and-seek in Divinity's Reach


What do you love most about the game and which activity will you be leading:

I love coordinated raids and other world events. I'd love to lead a Teq run or Wurm run someday <3


If you have one wish, what would you change in the guild?

I wish that there were more social members. I feel like I really know a handful of members, but the rest are total strangers. One of my favorite parts of the game is playing with others, which is why I supported the switch from DR to JQ.


What is your personal goal in the game?

My personal goal is to become a commander and a more strategic player. I'd like to *know* my characters better.


Tell us what you think about your current officer members.

I think we make an excellent team. We are a good blend of interests and each bring our own skills to the table.


Tell us about your vision and where do you see the guild 3 months from now:

I'm a true advocate of quality > quantity, so I'd really like to see the guild grow together as a higher quality, more skilled group of individuals.

My name is Rachelle and I am 25 years old. I'm located in Alberta Canada, but am originally from New Brunswick Canada. My life plans at the moment are simple, I want to be a stay at home mom! At least until the kids are in school (aiming for 2-4 kids) unless I go crazy and go back to work before then. My hobbies are spending time with the cutest little girl alive, playing games (mainly GW2, Dragon age inquisition and Diablo 3) I also enjoy reading (currently tackling Wheel of time) and pass the rest of my relaxing time with logic puzzles and such.

Tell us about your history with the guild (when and how you joined the guild):
I've been in this guild for close to 2 years now. I was invited in by a RL friend that was also in the guild. Been here since I first got the game.

Tell us your most memorable moment(s) about the guild:
Being on good on quiet Devona's rest, pink wvw runs, fun guild events, being asked to be an officer!

What do you love most about the game and which activity will you be leading:
I love everything about the game! but mainly leveling, exploring, and collecting all the achievements and skins! I will be leading mapping mondays! where we explore all of Tyria as a group! (less painful that way for people that don't like it)

If you have one wish, what would you change in the guild?
nothing! all great!

What is your personal goal in the game?
my personal goal is to have all the legendary weapons!!! I will achieve it eventually!.... Hopefully... :/

Tell us what you think about your current officer members.

Tell us something personal about yourself:
My name as most of you know is Felicia I am from Oregon and 25 years old. I have 2 wonderful children and a Dog that take up most of my time, which is why I may be afk a lot in game. I like to talk a lot and make people smile. I am currently interested in photography, music, and of course a few games. GW2 being the main, but I also like other game, pretty much junk on PS4 and more junk on Wii U depending on which Mario game my son wants to own me on.

Tell us about your history with the guild (when and how you joined the guild):
I joined DR almost a year ago, when the ever so amazing Apollo spammed the hell out of Queensdale. The guild I was in died so I thought hey why not. I didn't say a whole lot when I first joined and shortly after I did join I stopped playing GW for a few months. I got back surprised I was still in the guild and then Silent took me on my first PVP journey. Silent was the first person I started talking too then once I was comfortable I started annoying everyone. Now you are all stuck with me.

Tell us your most memorable moment(s) about the guild:
Oh there have been so many. However at the moment every time I log in I have about 10 people instantly whispering me telling me something cool in game that happened to them. So as of memorable moments it is just logging on and seeing people or making people happy or helping them get something they have been wanting or working hard for.

What do you love most about the game and which activity will you be leading?
I am still pretty big on WvW (working on getting my character on this account leveled for it) I enjoy dungeons, fotm, pvp, pve... I just enjoy this game, all of it. I will lead whatever activity people want me to. I will probably start up a night in eotm.

If you have one wish, what would you change in the guild?
I would like more people on TS, and of course the silent people to talk =)

What is your personal goal in the game?
I don't really have a personal goal. I have started so many "game goals" and then give up so I am just playing and doing whatever sounds fun or is offered. :P

Tell us what you think about your current officer members.
Honestly I think they are pretty awesome. I have come to know them and I would hug them in person. ;)

Tell us about your vision and where do you see the guild 3 months from now:
I see DR still going strong and hopefully more of these fun events/competitions. It gives the game another boost and reason to play. The PVP tournament has been mentioned to me by a few new members, and how awesome it is this guild does these to bring the members together. I would like to see more of this in the next 3 months.

Tell us something personal about yourself:

My name is Jeremy. I’m 22 years old located in Northern Virginia. I graduated from the College of William and Mary in 2014 with majors in Economics and Philosophy. I currently work as a consultant at Booz Allen Hamilton. When I’m not on GW or working, I enjoy seeing friends, working out and hangin’ with my dog, Mowgli. I also like Disney stuff a lot so feel free to talk about any Disney movie with me as long as you don’t have anything negative to say about Ratatouille.

Tell us about your history with the guild (when and how you joined the guild):

I joined DR in the fall of 2014. I had just gotten back into GW after an extended year and half break. I was just doing a casual CM run when I ran into Charis and Music. At which point, Charis forced me to accept guild invite o_o The welcome was surprisingly enthusiastic.


Tell us your most memorable moment(s) about the guild:

A few days after joining DR, there was an impromptu naked dance party at the mystic forge with quite a large majority of the guild as well as a few shoguns. I got to actually see a lot of the members/shoguns (and a lot of Soph) I knew I had joined the right guild. 


What do you love most about the game and which activity will you be leading:

My primary activities include daily fractals of the mists and dungeons. I usually will lead two or three low level fractal runs for beginners weekly. I have noticed it works better if anyone who wants to learn, just PM me instead of me setting a time for each week. But, if you want a set time, there is almost always a fractal run following guild missions on Saturday evenings.


If you have one wish, what would you change in the guild?

To be honest, there isn’t anything I want to change about DR. Just as a precautionary statement, the strongest part of DR is the fact that everyone has their own niche and therefore their own way they like to go about accomplishing in-game goals. We should all be wary when giving advice in differentiating between the path of least resistance and the path of greatest efficiency for the guildie in question.


What is your personal goal in the game?

Friends & Skins

Tell us what you think about your current officer members.

I like how each officer has their own interests and present a unique personality to the guild.

Tell us about your vision and where do you see the guild 3 months from now:

I see further development in the growing core group of guild members. In the short time I have been with DR, I believe the guild is developing very quickly in a positive manner.

Tell us something personal about yourself:

i live in florida, its hot as hell, and i work in water conservation/treatment. i take pictures of alligators everyday and i feed the sandhill cranes peanuts. bought my 1st house last year. i like long walks on the beach, and drinks with friends or a quiet night in. oh wait this isnt match.com. sorry, im a bit of a joker and a goofball, , i am ANTI PC, i like inappropriate humor.. im 37 have my shit together financially, but no way do i act my age. hello my name is Tom, and i am an addict... of gw2... and netflix... and other stuff....

Tell us about your history with the guild (when and how you joined the guild):

Do not remember who recruited me, i joined almost 2 yrs ago i think. and right after i joined i went on a year long break from the game. (issues with now ex) came back to the game and surprised i was still in the guild so i repped and said hello... met lexi and apollo, started pvp'n and the rest is history

Tell us your most memorable moment(s) about the guild:
All pvp matches with guildies, always a good time. one match in particular, we capped their home, and headed to break their gate on foefire, and an enemy came out the blue door by the gate , and i insta knock backed him right back through the door. i laughed soooo hard cuz he had to be thinking wtf just happened.


What do you love most about the game and which activity will you be leading:

i have 2 modes... PVP mode, and lazy mode PVE.. wouldnt call it leading, but i will always try to get guildies to come pvp, and teach them if they need. win or lose doesnt matter, its all about hanging with good ppl. goofing off in teamspeak, etc etc...

If you have one wish, what would you change in the guild?

nothing needs to be changed.


What is your personal goal in the game?

help those who need help, teach pvp, grab a few nice skins, but basically, if DR didnt have such a good group of ppl, i wouldnt be playing gw2 anymore. so the goal is to keep everyone entertained, happy, and hopefully recruit a few ppl here and there as a i play. i do not just map hop and spam messages.. quality over quantity.

Tell us what you think about your current officer members.

Suiki is a little shifty..... but other than that..... JKJKJK, all officers are pro, and good ppl.. <3 all


Tell us about your vision and where do you see the guild 3 months from now:

rainbow stomping, chillin in guildhalls, we need more pvp tourneys maybe. i have a hard time leading events, cuz alot of ppl are on west coast and its usually late for me when stuff happens in guild in game. i will do what i can when i can.. but all in all, DR rocks, everyone is the shit, and keep on rollin......

Tell us something personal about yourself:

Sometimes I walk into the club like what-up i gotta... No...No.... that's not me.

I live in the middle of a cornfield in Illinois, and have the internet to prove it. Originally from Saint Louis, Missouri and hoping to return soon. I am with the BEST WIFE EVER (Deathsrike/Satanna in game) who I married 2 and a half years ago. We met on Guild Wars in 2007 during Mad King Says. True Story.

I played Guild Wars 1 for a long time, mainly to creep on the girl I met in 2007 as often as possible. I picked up GW2 at launch but was on hiatus for the second half of Living World Season 1.

I'm a retail trainer by day and gamer by night... tho honestly i'm a retail trainer by night sometimes too. I love Guild Wars, Kingdom Hearts, and Pokemon. Snorlax4lyfe

I'm Jeff.... and I say WOOOOO

Tell us about your history with the guild (when and how you joined the guild):

There I was, mindin my owns (that means minding my own business, if you're hip to street slang) sitting in front of Caudacus Manor. Back then i was all about the PUG LYFE. I joined a pug with this human thief, this brightly colored asura, and a charr... The thief kept calling the charr a dirty cow... I moo'd at the charr and the thief said I should join his guild.... And his name was Tso!

I was in a guild with just my wife and myself before that. Tso invited me and I made myself at home real quick. I didn't choose the Ronin life, the Ronin life chose me.

Tell us your most memorable moment(s) about the guild:

As I said above, I made a home here fairly quickly. First week in I was trying to be involved in as many guild activities as possible. Mapping Monday wooo! Guild Chat was about the best thing ever so I wanted to get Ronins To Go while I was at work! I used a group chat app (LINE) for work and other online games in the past so I created a Ronin Group (with Sophs approval) and asked Ronins to join up with us. Then Dejja joined... and it...got....real! I can tell you first hand, that chat is butter!

In game im always going to remember the Ronin stomps! There was also the time I was running Fractal lvl 40 with Tso, Troll, and some PUGs, halfway through the second Fractal, TSO disconnected... and was gone for like 2 months! Never do that again Tso!

What do you love most about the game and which activity will you be leading:

Its hard to say what I love most. I'm all about that PVP now thanks to Dejja, Apollo, and Lexi. But then i'm also all about those Fractals thanks to Tso. I guess if I were to pick one thing I love most about the game, it wouldn't be gameplay, It would be Ronins!

As for what I'll be leading... I'm always trying to get in on the PVP with Dejja, the Fractals with Tso, and the Mapping Monday with Natsae (which I volunteer to lead if she can't make it). I'll lead a dungeon run here and there, teach intro to fractals, and try to do Make-up guild missions on Monday's if the stormy monday ever stops. I'll also be a one-stop shop for game questions.

As a leader, what I will commit to is helping wherever I am needed and leading the charge on Line Chat!

If you have one wish, what would you change in the guild?

More people on line chat, especially on Sand Hill Crane thursday... that means you Felicia :D looooooooooooooooool


What is your personal goal in the game?

I want to be with cool, happy, people and get skins! One of these day's I'll have Eternity... the day after that I'll get a Fractal GS drop and reskin my legendary... My goal was to find a set of cool people to hang out with and I accomplished it.

I want to live the Ronin life and look amazing while doing so!

Tell us what you think about your current officer members.

I've spent time with all of the officers and many of the Shoguns. You guys have kept it together this long and we'll continue to do so going forward. Great group all around! Woooo

Dejja, i'm not any shiftier than you! Or Soph for that matter... (I looked it up....on google...)


Tell us about your vision and where do you see the guild 3 months from now:

Well by then the machines will have taken over... We'll lose some Guild Members due to inability to access the servers, an unfortunate cost of war. There will be Ronins across the globe who hide underground, working in secret, keeping Guild Wars 2 servers alive. These modern day heroes will give everything they have to keep the guild going strong. Dejja and I will likely be raiding the now-deserts of Florida trying to capture the last few remaining Sand Hill Cranes and bottles of Fiji water to sustain the server crews. We will communicate over private cell networks. Soph will work diligently in the war room, drawing pictures of scary and unusual things to be put into "the new google" anthology. Life will be hard... we will fight day in and day out... but we will be united as one! We are Ronins!!!!!







...or it we will be having a naked dance party in the new Guild Hall..... either way.
