  • Elerena

    Could I get added in as well? Liokae.9201, haven’t quite decided on what I’ll be rolling up.

  • Dave, the Kwisatz Haderach

    My ID is KorLeonis.8650. And I steadfastly refuse to sign up for the blasted facebook, so make sure to keep posting the updates here JT.

  • BaisBlackfingers


    Pretty sure I’ll have time, but probably not going to decide what to make until actually in game.

  • Don

    I’m interested too – drl.9576. Not sure what type of character I’ll play – so far I’ve been a Norn warrior but I may experiment with others.

  • Michael

    I’m interested to join if that is alright, though not entirely sure what I’ll be rolling yet. I’ll decide after tomorrow I think. Sinful Scythe.7091 and I sent a request to the facebook group =)

  • Edrick P. Smef

  • jumppoint

  • Jeremy5083

    Hey Guys! There’s a awesome new forum that just started for Guild Wars 2 at – You should all check it out! They may be giving away free copies of Guild Wars 2 in the next few weeks!

  • josh

    hey, are we automatically signed up for the guild if we are on the list? and if not, how do we find eachother and put eachother in the guild.

    • Epinephrine

      Good question, josh
      My plan is to get on pretty early and try to make the guild, if nobody else has. We haven’t assigned founding the guild to anyone yet, and it doesn’t really matter who does it (provided they pass the reins to whomever is going to be heading it up), and once the guild is founded, begin inviting people based on this thread/the facebook document. Since KeganL has expressed a desire to lead, I would promote him to leader and step down. If someone else beats me to it, they can do something pretty much identical to ensure they get everyone in.

      I would recommend that a few people be given “officer” type permissions, so that we have several people are about capable of adding people to the guild.

      If you get into game and the guild is formed, but you are not yet invited, contact one of the people on the list who is already in the guild; they can then either invite you or ask an officer to do so, depending on the settings. If I am one of the first in game (I am off early from work today, so I may well be) I will try to be around to add people (provided I am in guild and have that ability), and will update the facebook thread and here with contact info.

      I’m not trying to step on any toes, I just know how to get these things going, so I want to try to get it rolling from noon PDT.

    Sidebar: Does anyone see any value in creating a Godless Steam group? I’m sure a lot of us play games on there too, including some who may not have been interested in the GW2 thang.

    We can’t spend ALL our time playing GW2, after all. Could be fun to invade a server for a big ol’ Team Fortress 2 match-up, play some Civ 5 (they just added religion in the newest expansion, yay…) or what have you.

  • Epinephrine

    Is the guild going to be called “Godless,” or “godless”?

    • JT Eberhard

      Godless. And thanks for volunteering. I’ll be on right at the start too if you want to give me officer privileges I can help add others.

      I have a post scheduled for 1:30 with all the last minute details. I’ll add you as the guy making the guild. I think it’ll wipe as soon as the BWE is over, so I wouldn’t worry too much. :)

  • otrame

    Any word about playing on a Mac?

  • dotban

    Been meaning to sign up for a while now, but my screen name is “dotban.3574″ and I’ll prolly play a Charr or something silly like that. I’ll follow up on facebook in a bit to make sure I’m to date on the goin’s ons, cheers.

  • ishkodewaaboo

    Okay so the plan was to play this weekend and figure out which class I wanted to go with…but now I just want to play most of the classes. And all of the races.
