For 12 years now, our community has withstood the test of time. Founded upon a higher set of standards, we continuously strive to provide our members with the most complete and rewarding gaming experience. We have made many accomplishments, but what we value more than anything are the relationships that we have built within our community. We have gone beyond your typical guild experience and are more of a family. It is our basic principles and these friendships that bind us together. While games come and go, and so many of the "hardcore" guilds crumble around us, the Sinister Swarm remains eternal!
The Sinister Swarm is a multi-platform gaming community with 12 years of gaming experience built into its tight-knit leadership. Through long hours and a great deal of dedication, the Sinister Swarm has grown into a well-respected and well-regarded community that has members still in it from the very beginning. The world "guild" no longer can describe what we have become over these years. We put the class back into gaming.
1999: Sinister Swarms original founding as SLAYER Clan for Team Fortress.
2000: Sinister Swarm moves to Everquest 1, our first MMO.
2002: Dark Age of Camelot, where we began our legacy spanning 8 years.
2005: Guild Wars, shedding blood conquering the battled fields.
2008: Age of Conan, having only spent a small time in Age of Conan, but our dedication was known server wide.
2008: Warhammer Online, once the Iron Rock guild of the week, Sinister Swarm was widely respected and feared alike during their reign.
2009: Aion, we moved on from Warhammer to Aion and continued our efforts.
2010: Global Agenda, Star Trek Online and World of Warcraft; with so many members and such a wide variety of tastes we spread our wings of dominance, we began not one but three branches of our interest in this year.
2011: Rift and Star Wars: The Old Republic, two promising new games, Rift a dynamic new game by Trion Worlds where we excuted both PVE and PVP dominance. And, Star Wars: The Old Swarmpublic which is currently still being played in wait for Guild Wars 2 release.
2012: TERA Online, led by Emperor Venom himself, not only the highest ranked gaming guild on the Jagged Coast server, but one of the most widely respected ones as well. Quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with server wide.
2012-XXXX: THE FUTURE. You are our future. With the Swarm Initiative invading Guild Wars 2 and many other games to come, we need strong and loyal members like you that can cultivate comradery, loyalty and friendships that will bind us together through the tough blood drenched days to come! World vs. World, structured PVP/PVE organized activities and more await us.
Here in the Swarm we range from casual family players to dedicated hardcore PvPers. Our main goal is to always have fun and meet new and interesting people. For our officers, it is both our duty and pleasure to help facilitate a positive and fun atmosphere for everyone, regardless of experience, rank or play style. We strictly refrain from engaging in open world debates/flaming, and instead choose to let our play speak for itself. Although reaching the top is important, we feel what really matters is how you get there. With hard work and commitment we can achieve anything, but at the end of the day its all about having fun, making friends and doing everything in our power to help our fellow Swarmers succeed. We expect that our members always demonstrate respect not only to our community, but to everyone in game. One of us represents all of us. Honor above all else.

I want to let everyone know that starting tonight, at 6pm PST, our member Nitro Genicide will be gathering up people to participate in "runs" that will go towards your Hall of Monuments. These runs will go until the release of GW2, which in his case is August 25. Below is a complete copy of his plans and dates for the events, If you are intrested in taking part in these please let me know via a pm on this forum, or you can head on over to our forums. If you like how our guild works and want to tag along for GW2 feel free to drop off an Application, Hope to hear back from everyone!
Before I get to in depth, I will mention, some of these runs will take a good chunk of time.
With that said, I think it's reasonable, and easy enough, to begin with Hero Armor sets. To do these, we can do simple runs through challenge missions. Each set of armor you get is good for one hero and one point. To max out the Resilience track, you must upgrade the armor of 30 heroes. But we won't need to do this since we're not trying to max our HoMs.
The next best thing to do would be title hunting. There are a few titles that are simple and can be achieved within a days work. For instance; Legendary Survivor is possible to attain by doing roughly 15-20 runs with exp scrolls, which would be about 6-8 hours. The easiest titles, however; are the ones you get for completing campaigns. The first campaign can be rushed and completed in only a day's amount of time. The second would be Nightfall, which will take around 3-4 days. And the final would be Factions which we could complete in only a couple days.
I realize that they're might be a decent number of people wishing to do some of these runs. I have constructed a rather rough schedule of what we will be doing each night. It goes as follows:
Tonight (07/27): Introduce players to the game mechanics (new players) and explain, in full detail, my plans for the next few weeks.
Saturday Night - Monday Night (07/28-07/30): Begin Prophecies campaign run groups. These will continue until Tuesday night when we begin running through the Nightfall campaign.
Tuesday Night - Friday Night (07/31-08/03): Finish Prophecies campaign, help anyone who got a late start. Begin Nightfall campaign.
Saturday Night - Monday Night (08/04-08/06): Finish Nightfall campaign. Same as above. Begin work on Factions campaign.
Tuesday Night - Thursday Night (08/07-08/09): Finish Factions campaign. Begin preparations for vague title hunting, such as Legendary Survivor, Eternal Conqueror of the Underworld, Fissure of Woe, Sorrows Furnace, The Deep etc. Further details will be given at the meeting tonight.
Friday Night - Sunday Night (08/10-8/12): Continue title hunting groups with the addition of Hero Armor runners in a separate channel to themselves.
Monday Night - Wednesday (08/13-08/15): We continue work on the Hero Armor runs, while also adding some farming groups to the picture for resources used to fund the financial situation involved with the HoM runs.
Thursday Night - Friday Night (08/16-08/17): Make up days. We will be using these days to catch any members caught out of the loop in previous weeks. I will strive to help anyone and everyone I can during these 2 days.
Saturday Night - Monday Night (08/18-08/08/20): I have allocated this time for the re-visitation of missions in the campaigns. I will be forming groups that will go over any missions that were not done, including the bonuses. I will explain what this means at the end of this post. **
Tuesday Night - Friday Night (08/21-08/24): With only one day before the launch of GW2, I will use this time for any members that need assistance with any titles, missions, or runs and assure that you get as much done as possible.
Here are some very helpful links in terms of the HoM runs we will be doing:
Here is a website to visit if you either don't know what to throw on you skill template, or if you're just rusty:
Here is a very helpful way of keeping track of your rewards. It also tells you, what items and titles you will receive in guild wars 2:
To wrap it all up...
The schedule that I provided may not be fully accurate to the day, but it does come close. This also may not seem like much, but there is a bunch of things we can do in between each allotted time space. I look forward to gaming with everyone soon.
**Missions are essentially graded by the tasks you perform in each. You are given bonus objective in addition to the main mission objectives. If you complete all additional mission objectives, you receive what is called the Master's Reward on that mission, which then goes towards the Protector title track, which will be easy if we do this when we run through the campaigns.
