The Gaiscioch Family: Chapter 4:
Guild Wars 2

Welcome traveler, I would like to welcome you to the humble home of the Gaiscíoch (Pronounced: Gosh-Kia) Family and Tuatha Social Gaming Community. Our family began as a social gaming community in the industry pioneering MMORPG Dark Age of Camelot. We began on the Nimue server on November 11th, 2001, with a focus on creating a fun and enjoyable community for players of all ages and skill levels.

The Gaiscíoch takes it's name from the Irish legends found within the "Cét-chath Maige Tuired", "Lebor Gabála Érenn", and "Cath Maige Tuired" which chronicles the first people of Ireland the Tuatha de Danann. Specifically the First Battle of Moyturna where the Tuatha de Danann hand picked the most honorable and loyal warriors to fight along side the Celtic gods in a battle against the Fir Bolg. These Warriors were known as the Gaiscíoch.

With our roots firmly attached in the Celtic Mythological Cycle, the Gaiscíoch hold honor, respect, integrity, and fellowship, over hierarchy and dictatorship. Today the Gaiscíoch family spans many games, sports, and social circles.

We are a social casual gaming community with a relaxed approach toward gaming. We allow our members to play how they want, when they want, as long as they want and do not constrict them with quotas or requirements. It is through gaming, athletic competition, and social interaction that we forge new friendships and relationships.

    • Aoibheann Posted An Event Recap:

      This event was not as long as what we usually run (2 1/2 hrs rather than 4 or 5 hrs), but I just couldn't sit still any longer. Thank you all for your patience with me this week, the side effects from the EMG are starting to wear off, so it will get easier.

      Don't forget, I won't be able to make my event again this coming Tuesday as I have another Dr's appointment, but I will be back for more fighting on the borderlands next Friday. After that I hope to be back to my normal WvW events for a while...

    • Aoibheann Posted A Blog:

      My apologies for cancelling my WvW event with such short notice today.

      I received a last minute call from the VA this morning to tell me that they had an opening (someone else cancelled an appointment) for me to have an Electromyogram and a Nerve Conduction Study for late this morning.

      The results are still unknown to me, but the after effects are rather nasty at the moment. You probably won't see a lot of me in game for the next day or two as I recover from my tests as it is difficult for me to sit in front of the computer for more than 10 - 15 mins at a time...

    • Marcovius Posted An Event Recap:

      Slowly at first, then with growing momentum, my Blue Tag started attracting Rallians and GSCH Warriors to me. We successfully re-claimed our Home BL and smashed the Invaders in a couple of really good small-group fights.

      We then took the fight to their BL - Borlis Pass. Camps and Towers were easy (well, except for the NW tower - but we went back and took that one too...), but I still have not cracked the code on breaking into upgraded, waypointed, and massively sieged Keeps.

      We broke thru outer, and had inner down to about 50% - and that's when the heavy Arrow Cart fire started taking its toll...

    • Aoibheann Posted An Event Recap:

      With the new content in the game today we didn't have the usual number of players out with us in WvW. So we started out a little slower, taking camps, building golems and bouncing around on all of the maps. Our rallians were trying to help, but they foiled some of our objectives by letting the enemy know where we were on the map.

      Despite the draw backs, we were able to take Borlis Pass' T3 Garri and keep it paper, and we almost took their Bay as well. We had better luck on Sorrow's Furnace where we took their Bay and Garri and held them for most of the event...

      I will post each week which achievements we will be doing during the event so you can check to see which ones you need - they are worth 10 points each...

      Thank you all for joining me again today for the last official Scavenger Hunt. I have added 5 new Jump Puzzles to this event, plus we got to kill a Champ at the end of our run just before we jumped Tribulation Caverns as a group. Thanks for the extra ports and to Jay for tagging up at the end to lead the group into the port spot for the Coddler's Cove JP.

      I will be going back to doing the Puzzled Jumpers monthly instead of weekly after today. I will also have a few new puzzles next time around and (keeping my fingers crossed) I hope to have a taxi at the goggles above the Not So Secret JP chest - though it might not be next month, but I am working on it...

    • Aoibheann Posted An Event Recap:

      Sorrow's Furnace finally woke up today and had a large PPT when I logged in, so we went straight for the high points. First hitting all the keeps, then taking the towers, and only camps when we were bored or occasionally out of supply. Since it was reset night, we didn't do any upgrades - but don't get used to that. We had plenty of Golems to march around where needed, thank you to my Mesmers who were porting us.

      We also had some wonderful open field fights with KN as well as some great keep defenses when they tried, and failed to take back their Garri from us...

    • Marcovius Posted An Event Recap:

      With a few Intrepid Adventurers, we decided to dip our feet into the PvP pool and see how we would do.

      Well... we had some great fights, and although we didn't win either match we had a lot of fun. We were able to complete a couple of the PvP Daily Achievements, and also forged a PvP small group to meet up again tomorrow and pick up where we left off.

      The rust is slowly coming off, and I'm confident that we will do much better next time, and the time after that.

      Thanks,
      Marcovius

    • Aoibheann Posted An Event Recap:

      A great BIG thank you to Marcovius for stepping up, tagging up and leading the charge until I was able to return.

      We had another great fight night. Kaineng had taken over our borderland and way pointed our keeps, so we took the fight back to their borderland and then cleaned them off our lands. Not only did we have some really good open field fights, but also some excellent (and successful) bunker fighting in the Keeps.

      What fun it was, see you again next time....

    • Marcovius Posted An Event Recap:

      Thank you very much for joining me in a true trial by fire! I saw that Aoibheann was delayed, so I tagged up and gave it a try.

      We had success taking camps and towers (sorry I can't claim them yet), but we were not quite able to crack into our Waypointed Keeps.

      I really appreciated the support and all of the positive feedback - we did what we could with what we had.

      I filled my bags and I really hope everyone had a good time!

      Thanks again,
