Welcome to the Village of Fairhaven

The Village of Fairhaven is a small town on the eastern shore of Faldor Island. Surrounded by wooded vales teeming with game and with a strong river flowing through the valley towards Lake Essdar, the village is an idyllic, peaceful land. Many people come to hunt the fearsome grizzlies, or to use the local sawmill.

All are welcome to join us in the tavern, drink an ale to cut the dust of the long road, and rest a spell before continuing their travels. Make sure to check our well-stocked merchants before you leave the village, as you may find deals that will lighten your heart but not your pocketbook!

Alliance Information:

Although the village maintains a strong militia, we always enjoy building a friendly relationship with other guilds and organizations.

In general, we provide 3 benefits to our allies:
1. Defensive troops
2. Access to the skills of our artisans
3. Information Sharing (raids, harvest, game mechanics)
In return, we also expect these items from our Allies.

While a treaty with Fairhaven brings less advantages, we do everything within our power to provide benefits to those who sign a peace treaty with us: reduced costs on goods, spellcasting (excites for raids, etc), and preferred trading partners are only some of the benefits of a treaty with Fairhaven.

If you are considering an alliance or treaty with our Village and would like more details, please contact the Mayor.

Guild Philosophy and Rules

We have very few hard and fast rules in the Village:

1. Be mature, courteous, and polite in your dealings with others.
Everyone has bad days where they fly off the handle or don't think before they speak. If it becomes a habit, you'll be expected to find a new home, because we won't want our reputations damaged by your actions.

2. Obey the rules of the game.
Pretty simple...Read the Rules, and Obey them. If you feel you can't obey them, then find a new home.

3. If you need something, take it; if you have something, give it.
We will provide as much material support as we can. It's expected that you will need more support when you are at lower levels, and that is fine. If you need tools, armor, food, items, or materials, then feel free to take it. If you have extra, then give what you can. There are no requirements/quotas to this, just be reasonable about it.

4. Support your guildmates in their goals.
This is important. The entire purpose of a guild is to help its members in whatever goals they set for themselves, whether by providing materials, tools, an attaboy, or just a place to vent. If you don't feel that you want to help others, or if you demonstate that you are just playing this game for yourself, then we don't want you.

If you feel that you can follow these guidelines, then feel free to contact Archaedog for more information or an invitation. Be aware, we do not generally recruit folks that we don't know, and if you are someone we don't know well you will not advance in rank or gain advanced guild permissions for some time. If you are looking for a guild where you will be given power and rank quickly, this is not the place for you.

However, if you are looking for a place with a friendly-but-mature atmosphere and know a member of the village who is willing to speak on your behalf, please contact the Mayor for an invitation.
