Winterblades is recruiting for Crowfall launch on July 6! 


After almost six years of playing the Crowfall alpha we are excited to finally get Launch!  If you are a veteran of the alpha or new to Crowfall and interested in joining us, contact us in our public discord. (Sending in an app on the CF website without contacting us in discord will not get you an interview.)  The Winterblades have 20+ years of history across various PVPMMOs and have been focused on Crowfall since its kickstarter.  Building on our victories from the alpha in all the 11 Trials of the Gods and numerous campaigns we look forward to contesting the field once again against new friends and foes alike joining the Crowfall community for launch.

UPDATE: Recruitment for new players is re-opening on a limited basis! We've completed a roster review following victory in the first Dregs of Crowfall Live.  Please contact Angelmar on our discord or PM me here with short background and interest in -W-.  We are looking for highly active players to join us in dregs.   Recruitment by referral remains open for alpha veterans, old friends/opponents, and/or folks with a historical connection to Winterblades. 

A New Chapter Begins:

We raise our banners for Crowfall and begin the latest campaign in our long history. Crowfall is the long awaited successor to Shadowbane and Darkfall, and Winterblades has been one of the most active guilds in the Crowfall Alpha from day one.  Stable leadership, focused on creating a low-drama community focused on enjoyable openworld PvP, has made Winterblades a guild that has survived through seventeen years and multiple games.  Around our core of veterans, we are inviting new recruits with a Guild-First attitude.  Join us for the battles ahead as we approach Crowfall release and beyond.

Who Are The Winterblades?
The Winterblades is a community whose core membership was forged in the crucible of Shadowbane. The community has been around in various forms since Ultima Online in 1998, but entered into a new era with Shadowbane in 2003. Over the years, through skill, determination, and dedication, the guild developed into one of the most respected communities in Shadowbane. In Darkfall, Winterblades, along with The Shipwrecked Pirates formed the core of the leadership of Shadowbane Alliance based out of the Winterblades capital of Erinthel.

Our History is an open book. From the dark days of defeat to the heights of victory and server domination, we’ve endured and grown. The strength of the Winterblades is the strength of our membership. We have always favored quality over quantity and do not mass recruit. We have a highly veteran membership, including multiple Shadowbane Community and Class Advocates and a deep bench of leadership with long experience with in game politics and the trials of open world pvp gaming. Our community is low-drama and dedicated and has been gaming together for over 17 years.

The respect the Winterblades have enjoyed amongst our former foes is one of our greatest badges of honor. Our success on the battlefield, our stability as a guild, and the quality of our leadership can be measured not only by the members, but by the actions of our former rivals. We have had multiple guilds, that were once amongst our foes, sub or merge into the Winterblades after meeting us on the field. Victory is important, but how that victory is achieved is also crucial. We let our conduct speak for us. Maturity, Class, and Respect have always been important to us.

How to Apply:
If you are interested in joining Winterblades for the Campaign World tests pm Angelmar on the forums or join us in our public discord.

We are only accepting applications from testers with access to testing at this time. During the testing and for live we will be focused on USTZ servers. We are also taking applications for any European gamers that want to play on the US servers. Interested players can join us on the field and run with us in Campaign World tests. There is a probationary period of 60-90 days currently where both the guild and the applicant have a chance to audition each other. Final decisions on ultimate recruitment will be based on field performance and most importantly how well you mesh with the rest of -W-.

Our door of course remains open to former allies and enemies (and especially to individuals that were both!) from Shadowbane and Darkfall.

Rulesets, Eternal Kingdoms, and the Unknown: 
The ultimate mechanics of the Crowfall campaign system are still largely unknown. Winterblades will be playing on whatever ruleset becomes the Guild v Guild platform (likely dregs) along with most the rest of the greater Shadowbane community. -W- will be there as the new systems come online PvPing, testing, and shaping Crowfall as it nears release.

The mechanics of the Eternal Kingdoms (and how they will interact with the Campaign Worlds) are also still essentially open questions. Winterblades will always be focused on PvP and the Campaign Worlds (and maybe PvP in the EK!). The economic interaction between the Dregs and EKs is unknown, however we have a contingent of folks interested and invested in the the Eternal Kingdoms and the economy. As a guild that supported JTodd and Crowfall from the kickstarter, we have significant assets available from Citadels to Palaces to Parcels and will be monitoring the development of these systems as JTodd's vision for this mechanic expands.
