The site is currently displaying an old layout. Please be patient while we work with our host (Shivtr) to resolve this.

Update: These have been resolved!

April Fire Fields and Blast Finishers Bring 25 Stacks of Might
You all know that April showers bring May flowers, but in this edition of the newsletter, you'll read about the [Might] and [Fury] of RED.

A quick nod to all those who have stepped up recently into RED leadership. Feel free to ask any of our new officers questions you may have.
  • Pewey, WvW Team Lead
  • Kristen Wave, Recruit Officer

Rules Clarification & Aprill Cull
RED has three official rules, and one unofficial rule. I would like to clarify when there are exceptions to the first three rules. Note that there are never exceptions for the fourth rule.
  • You must represent RED on all toons at all times. Exceptions made for personal guild banks (since you have to rep the guild to use the bank) and, on a case-by-case basis, TTS. If you plan on joining TTS for Tequatl kills you MUST (1) Tell Prae Tor (2) Only rep TTS for the duration of the Tequatl kill. You also really will be urged to show up for Tequatl attempts on Devona's Rest.
  • Devona's Rest has to be your home server - guesting is allowed. There are no exceptions to this rule.
  • Chat is PG-13. This means that curse words are generally discouraged and a few are very, very, discouraged (f-bombs, and c**t). Please refrain from discussing any sexual or drug related activities. Please also refrain from discussing politics and religion.
  • (Unofficial, but de facto) Don't be a jerk.

At the end of April, we will be culling inactive members. Inactive members are always welcome back in RED. See the section at the bottom of the newsletter for details.

April Feature Pack
ArenaNet is rolling a large number of features in the month of April. They will significantly affect gameplay. Check out:

Guildie Spotlight: Kristen Wave, as Interviewed by Talas Kaidan
How did you get involved in Guild Wars?
My little brother and I usually move from game to game together and we both used to play Runescape a ton back in middle school. When I got into high school several of my friends in Runescape started talking about Guild Wars Factions. So I decided to give it a try and ended up becoming obsessed with playing my Assassin. Then about 3 years ago I started hearing about GW2 and seeing all of the pre-release info. It had everything that GW1 was missing and I just couldn't not buy it. I bought the game as soon as it was available and began playing the beta. I've been addicted ever since!

If you could be any food what would it be and why?
I'd have to be Maine Blueberry Pie because it is the best desert to ever exist. I was with my girlfriend Rhin Volkind in Maine visiting her relatives who have a summer home there and her aunt had just bought a huge basket of fresh picked Maine Blueberries from the farmers market in town. So she decided to back a blueberry pie for us to have after eating fresh lobster we had caught earlier that day. If I could eat that pie every day for the rest of my life I would but it's only good with fresh Maine Blueberries.

Where are you from? what's one thing we should know about your home town?
I'm from Richmond, Virginia. I'm in super liberal city filled with art majors and hipsters that is surrounded by super conservative southerners.

What is the single most important advice you would like to pass on to other players?
Guild Wars 2 is a game and you should enjoy your play time. Don't get overly caught up in grinding to make ascended gear and legendaries. Just play the game and do the things you enjoy and the nice equipment and money will come naturally.

Whether you are participating in WvW, PvE, or guild events, TeamSpeak is an invaluable tool. Our TS server is and we frequently use TS is highly recommended in many situations and required for several of the guild events. It is absolutely a blast to be coordinating with everyone. If you have any questions on how to download, install, or set up TeamSpeak, ask Prae Tor or Talas Kaidan.

Inactive Members
We remove our inactive members periodically. To remain active, please sign on at least once a month. If you are mostly inactive and would like to remain in RED, send Prae Tor a mail. Another way to guarantee that we know you are active is to gain achievement points. If you should happen to be removed for inactivity, and you have returned to playing again, you are always welcome back to RED. Simply contact a leader/officer who will get you an invite back into the guild.

Have ideas?
Guildies - share ideas for what you’d like to see. Please reply to this post if there is anything RED can do for you!.

Need answers?
Please be aware when you post questions in guild chat and get no response that you are not being ignored. Some guildies might be deep in the bowels of a dungeon or subduing dragons and may not see your post. Officers may not be available due to babies, deadlines, relocations, stall mucking and hangovers. And did I mention babies? You can post your question in the forums, or you can send in-game mail to Prae Tor or Talas Kaidan and we can route it to the proper person if need be.

Good hunting!
- Prae Tor, with contributions by Waster, Talas, Kristen, and all of our screenshot competitors.
