      Fresh pigs for the pen

      By Sinful, in News,

      In a recent discussion our resident chimpanze said "You are not a member of Ginnunga – You are a part of Ginnunga". He didn't actually put it quite that eliquivent, but he was damn close, and it got me thinking.
      A lot of guilds recruit seemingly at random. If someone fits a gear requirement or certain class they're in, if not they're out. And sure, we do require or look for certain things, but what's always been the most sought after quality when Ginnunga recruits is being awesome. It's a tricky trait to quantify, but obvious when you find it.
      We're looking for the kind of people who stick around for years and years after our current game is dead and gone. The kind of people we share good and bad times with over late night conversations on coms. The kind of people who give us a push when we need it, and space when it's desired. The kind of people who become friends.
      Today we're equally proud and happy to welcome Ashelor, Fong and Papercuts in our midst. May your days be ever filled with truffles and sunshine little piggies, go forth and make us proud!
      And as some take the step to member, others stumble in to take their place as recruits. We've yet to learn if Zapfcarn, Minoxi, Scorpus, Rangera or Minipink are people we'll years from now come to consider as friends, but we're eager to find out. Welcome, we all hope you'll come to find a home here as many have before you.
      We'll be back with more ingame related news asap, we just have a few quests left to do... and a few farms left to tend... and a few wars left to fight... Yeah.
      Til next time, see you in the desert.

    • 26 days ago we stormed head first into a game most of us had only a heard briefly about not weeks prior to launch. And maybe it was the lack of expectations, maybe not, but Ginnunga has fallen madly, deeply, truly in love with Black Desert Online.
      Of our current in game roster of 50 we're 47 actively playing, and the remaining 3 are prohibited by rl reasons. The level of activity has seldom been this high, and we're recruiting to further bolster our ranks.
      Besides the myriad of activities like leveling, gathering, producing boats, fishing, farming and what not, we've of course gotten our fair share of bloodshed. We have been, or are, in open war with NihilumRed, Rain, Addicted and Nesert Diggers to name a few. We've gotten badly beaten at points, and slaughtered migmugs in droves at others. Our years of PvP experience helps us to keep a cool head when the going gets tough, and lets us evaluate every battle to further hone our skills.
      One of the major driving forces behind our PvP team is Ginnungas most recent addition to the team of officers, Chimp. His unparalleled playing time has secured him a spot among the servers highest leveled rangers and he's constantly either fighting or schooling the rest of us in how to fight.
      In addition he's hosting a regular Sunday night brawl at a local arena. We share tips and tricks for PvP and once we're fed up with the apes squeaking we duke it out Ginnunga-style. Here's some recent screenshots from the last brawl, which was by all intents and purposes a huge success.


      We'd also like to welcome our latest band of recruits: Laowai, Skullcrusher and Handsken. We hope they don't go bananas and look forward to having them as a part of the Ginnunga family.
      If you're interested in applying to Ginnunga feel free to contact SinfulSaint, Fastas, Cogency or Wigglr in game for a chat.
      Until next time, see you in the desert!

    • It's been a busy few days indeed for Ginnunga since the pre release of Black Desert Online. Some have been leveling like mad, while others have taken the time to enjoy the scenery and spent most of their online time pulling cods out of some lake. To each his own.
      Listing all the things we've done the first few days would take way to long, but let's just say we see content in this game for such a long time that it's mindboggling.
      And to once again play a game with open world pvp has its advantages. Messages like this, for example:

      We didn't just kill him. We didn't make him respawn. We didn't tickle his bum and called him Susan. We "forcefully slaughtered" him. HOW CAN YOU NOT LOVE A GAME WHERE YOU FORCEFULLY SLAUGHTER PEOPLE IN THE NAME OF GINNUNGA?!
      Ok, fanboi moment over.
      All in all we're having an absolute blast in BDO, and everyone who doesn't try this glorious game are missing out.
      Sorry to keep this short, but I got catfish to kill, migmugs to plow and cats that need feeding. Virtual cats... Yes, THAT'S A THING!
      Sinful out.

    • Only a few days left now until we can dig out our robes and light sabres from the secret chest under out beds!
      Since we have played basically every Battlefield game in the series, as well as many of us have enjoyed the old Battlefront games, well, this will surely be interesting.

      Slow summer

      By Ernesto, in Guild News,

      With no MMOs out currently that interest us, we are spending our time playing various multi player games such as Heroes of the Storm, Battlefield, Marvel heroes and World of Warships.

    • The yearly gathering will take place in Stockholm, 17th-19th of July 2015. More details on the forum.
      If you are not a guildmember and wish to attend, contact Ernesto on the forum and we will sort you out.
