The Court of Ruin.

An ever-moving Court that never stays in one place, leaving a wake of destruction and turmoil behind wherever they go. Not many have heard their name, but know them as the Nightmare barbarians led by a dark sylvari with jasmine flowers on their branches.

Recently, they have grown bolder despite their small numbers - moving closer towards Caledon; the place where all of them had originated from. What better way to be a thorn in Mother's side than being an actual physical threat? Death meant nothing to these souless plants, or perhaps they didn't quite have a choice. From wherever the Court rests for the day or night, screams and emotions of torment can be felt and those who managed to escape their Duchess' grasp speak of utter terror and tyranny.

Ah but this is Nightmare, she would say. And those who could not stand it deserved to die for she had no need for the weak.


We are looking for individuals to play out this storyline with us, which would lead to the Seasonal Court system. What should you expect, you might ask? Violence! Gore! Treachery and betrayal! If you are interested in being part of sowing the seeds for an upcoming and growing Nightmare Court, do leave a message or send an application in.

A little more than a year ago, The Court of Ruin was a terrifying force - constantly moving and razing Dreamer towns and outposts across Tyria. They had no care for politics within the ranks itself, merely living to spread Nightmare and terrorize the Dream. However, during an attack on an outpost in Sparkfly, Ruin had nearly been vanquished from existence entirely.

It was a travelling group of Wardens that they had not expected. After learning of the court's movements, they had tracked down these twisted beings of Nightmare and laid a trap for them. Quickly outnumbered and taken by surprise, only the Duchess and the small number of courtiers who had remained behind survived.

And it was that day, that the Duchess of Domination swore revenge. Her life goal had shifted from being notoriously recognized by the Mother Tree to exterminating the Wardens who had come this close to claiming her life, and returning her to the Dream.

Fast forwarding to present times...

Domination had intercepted a Warden courier and learned that the Warden Commander of Lychcroft has information on this mysterious nomadic Warden group. The very same group that had wiped her Court out a year ago.

And so the plot for revenge begins. But to what lengths would the Duchess go for the taste of sweet, sweet, revenge?

Afterall...

Hell hath no fury like a courtier scorned.

HAPPY NEWS!

We are progressing through our prologue plot, and looking at kicking off the Seasonal systems latest by end December. Our recruitment is still open and we are actively seeking members to join us in this refreshing take of Nightmare Courts. As always, feel free to contact any of us via our site or in-game should you have any questions.

Thank you everyone for sticking around and playing out the Prologue with us! It's been a journey with ups and downs, but we made it!!

An execution to silence the one to keep her secrets
Another for one who disobeyed and was deemed useless
The taste of victory was already on her tongue
But never would she have guessed
That it was her being caught in the traps they strung


After a gruelling battle of smarts and resolve, Jasmyne's secrets were finally made known to the Court and she was found Guilty against the Nightmare Court itself, resulting in a turntable execution.

Years ago, Jasmyne's Court was locked in battle with Garyth's wardens, but due to being outnumbered, the Court was losing badly. Then Jasmyne had came up with an idea; one that would become the reason for her death in present times. One that no Nightmare Courtier should have ever had.

She chose to surrender her own courtiers to Garyth in exchange for her own life. The deal?

Courtiers would be sent over to Garyth over the years, reminding him constantly that should be break his word and launch an attack on her again, she would tell the Grove of how he became the 'Top Courtier Hunter'. On the other side of the coin though, Garyth was also blackmailing her - asking for courtiers, and should she not deliver, he would inform the Grove of Jasmyne's whereabouts and have them eradicated for good.

This was a tale of two on the opposite ends, blackmailing and using each other for their own selfish gains. A tale that the new blood in RUIN had uncovered and worked together to thwart their plans; to set things back where they should be.

And now RUIN has to deal with a larger issue; the hole that their fallen Queen had left behind.
