Why was House Ancora formed?

It is a natural phenomenon that an individual will make friends and associations with the people he or she games with. Unfortunately, these ties often get neglected as interest in any particular game wanes or real life issues prevent someone for gaming for awhile. In the end, a new game is found and the process is repeated. We've all been there. House Ancora was created to provide a platform that would allow gamers the freedom they wished to play different games and/or take breaks from gaming without having to lose the friendships they have cultivated.

Isn't House Ancora a guild?

No. Guilds are in-game organizations; created for specific games, existing within those realms, and sometimes crossing over to different games. House Ancora is a community. We exist outside of the game which gives our members the freedom to play what they want, when they want, but still maintain ties of friendship.

But I was in a game and saw a guild with the name Ancora?

Sometimes members of our community will band together and form a guild in a game. Sometimes this guild will be permanent, and sometimes it will be a placeholder until those playing the game find a good group of people to join. If the creation of the guild comes from within the community, then they may use the Ancora name for the guild with the permission of the Queen.

Can I have characters in other guilds?

House Ancora is not a guild. The community exists outside the confines of the game. As such, it is perfectly acceptable for people to play with other guilds. We encourage our members to let the community know if they find an excellent group of people to play with in a specific game so that any other members interested in the same game will have a group to join if desired. This has the added benefit of allowing Ancorans to play together, something for which we strive whenever possible.
