Hike through the pale, barely sunlight wilderness of Norway, to this almost poetic narration:

Northmen guild’s code of ethics

Love what you do Do what you love Begin where you are Use what you have Do what you can Honour the elders Teach the young Protect and love your family Keep your craft and your skills strong Learn from your own mistakes, not only from others Look for the log in your own eye - not the splinter in your brothers Be loyal to your friends Voice your opinion Stand your ground Trust your brothers Work hard, stay humble Focus on the detail Be brave Be calm Be patient Wake up early Temper your body Live in nature Walk in the woods Climb the mountains Find time to be alone Hunt when you need food Rest when you can Work when you must Always leave your mark Take charge when others show weakness Have more, spend less More time, less convenience Craft, not business Value, not price Quality, not quantity To create, not to produce Hands, not machines

Life on Tyria Youtube Channel

Hey guys! So i discovered this cool youtube channel this morning and thought I’d share with you Tyria loving folks before I forgot.

The channel is
sugarwraith

They only have 4 videos right now,and man those videos are awesome! The series is titled Life in Tyria, and they are each focused on a single race/animal in Guild Wars. It’s literally a scientific nature show for guild wars and they did an excellent job at it. I felt like I was some normal resident of Tyria watching a production from a Priory Scholar.
They have less than 200 views on each though, which makes me sad because they really did an excellent job.

Maybe go check em out and give them some love?

Heres the link to their Quaggan focused video:

And to their sloth one(yay sloths):

There’s also mushrooms and Saurians :)

Alright go and enjoy! :D

The Birth Of A Dugout Canoe by Northmen

👍 DREAM

The land offers us good reading, outdoors, from a lively, unfinished manuscript. Records, prophesies, mysteries are inscribed there, and changes. Even as we read from some selected page, whether mountaintop, forest, furrow, schoolyard, dune, bog, we see changes; in stirrings and silences, flavors and textures, spacing, tolerances, and confrontations and tensions at the edges.

Hi, hello, your art is far from amazing and, literally every i have been aspiring to do with my life. So for that, infinite thank you. As for my question, it says in your description that you're aspiring to be a science illustrator, which I didn't even know it was a thing, so if it's more than a self named career, is there any facts that have you learnt that could help a youngling like me? Also are there any of those spooky surrealistic that you would recommend? PS: That crow looks awesome.

Thank you!! I am honestly a youngling as well so you’ll have to take my knowledge for what it’s worth, but scientific illustration is definitely a career you CAN pursue. As far as finding more information, I would probably start with visiting the gnsi.org site (Guild of Natural Science Illustrators) and kinda seeing the sort of work people are doing and events relating to the field. 

There are also a few school programs you could check out, notably the Cal State Monterey Science Illustration program (very prestigious), or the University of Washington Natural Science Illustration graduate certificate program, or even (more specialized) the Cornell Lab of Ornithology has learning/internship opportunities, but is very competitive. I’m sure there are more and I’m sure there are programs outside the US, but these are the ones I am immediately aware of.

As for literature you could look into, one of my favorite books is Botany for the Artist by Sarah Simblet and will allow you to see what kind of work science illustrators are doing in the field. That book has excellent gestural botanical drawings and a lot of wonderful information about the field of (botanical) science illustration.

Hope this has helped!

…this is the beautiful entrance to the sculpture garden at The Guild Inn…

…in my hometown of Toronto…Canada…

…Guild Park is adjacent to The Guild Inn…an historic hotel in the Guildwood neighbourhood of Scarborough…a borough of Toronto…

…the hotel and park were once used as an artists colony…

…my parents celebrated their wedding reception…on a lovely June day…decades ago…

…the sculpture garden consists of various notable rescued facades and ruins from demolished downtown Toronto buildings…columns from old banks…businesses…clubs…

…the park and hotel enjoy an idyllic location close to Lake Ontario…

…but the Inn’s fortunes have declined over the years …and as the Scarborough neighbourhood grew urban around it…the property became run down and neglected…

…the park has been designated a heritage property by a Canadian foundation…

…over the years… small theatre companies have staged productions and festivals on the Greek stage at the park…

…it is a beautiful other worldly experience to sit amongst nature and enjoy performing art…

…it is my hope that the abandoned hotel and derelict park can be restored…

…for generations to enjoy…the important cultural significance…of the neoclassical architecture…that once graced the thriving metropolis of Toronto…my home town…

My thoughts on matters of roleplay

Okay look, you roleplay your characters how you want. I’ll start there. I can’t dictate what’s right or necessarily wrong, and I can’t control anyone. I don’t even think what’s going on is really bad. 

But guys, my character is Boros because I feel like the guild is held to a certain standard of conduct, and I’ve done my best to establish the guild’s presence as a professional, positive, and approachable entity. I’ve put myself out there as a pretty prominent figurehead for the guild by nature of my interests and how I engage with the rest of the community. 

Some of the threads I’ve seen with people openly associating with me, and let me clarify, I mean me, not the fictional guild, me personally as a (granted, unimportant) public figure, have drifted into some frankly uncomfortable territory. I’m not trying to be a buzz kill, but I know I don’t roleplay Maris to get embroiled in someone else’s ERP. 

And admittedly, some of it’s my fault. I’ve responded to threads I probably shouldn’t have, and I’ve answered asks in good faith that I didn’t think about the implications of, and I’m not saying that I’m an uninvolved party. But guys, just…keep it in your pants, alright. I run a blog for a fantasy cop. I don’t need to worry about whether another character is going to start getting it on with someone else in my notes. 

anonymous asked:

By calling yourselves agents, doesn't that inherently imply connection to agencies? Such agencies naturally reside within guilds and most guilds have accurate and updated information on their agencies. To be missing from this network of information would point toward belonging to a guild that isn't known to keep such records. There is only one alleged guild, rumored to exist, that fits this criteria. By calling yourselves agents, you indirectly betray the secrecy of the existence of your guild.

Due to Guildpact 2.0, everyone knows we exist. We are now just librarians, archivists, investigators, shop keepers and there is one known bakery owner. 

Ascendance of a Bookworm – 037

The Merchant’s Guild

Currently, I am being held in Benno’s arms as we make our way to the Merchant’s Guild. Originally, I was making every effort to walk there myself, but Benno started to get fed up with my walking speed. “So slow! This is a waste of my time,” he said, and picked me up. Then, he started ranting on and on about the importance of time, which I had no real way to argue against.
