"Protect the weak, destroy the wicked, uphold the peace. Act with honour." The Ashen chapter oath
Many thanks go to our resident asuran Genius, Zali for the video.
The Vigil is a military order dedicated to fighting the Elder Dragons and their minions by force of arms. They believe that the only way to defeat the Elder Dragons is to unite the races of Tyria and to face the minions of the Elder Dragons wherever they appear. The Vigil wants to face the Elder Dragons directly, testing Zhaitan's power in the hope that such methods can one day be used against the dragon itself. They believe that the Elder Dragons grow more powerful as each day passes, and that those who do not fight now are giving the world away by standing passively aside. They intend to be an army of light against the onslaught of darkness. Lately they operate with chapters, usually lead by a Warmaster. The Ashen Chapter is one of many, but aims to be amongst the most accomplished.
The Pact has been accused of callousness for not coming to the aid of Lion's Arch, but all three of its constituent organisations—the Vigil, the Order of Whispers, and the Durmand Priory—have devoted resources to its protection. Besides, the Pact has a greater mission, namely to protect against the Elder Dragons. But with the suspicion by Priory scholars that rousing a dragon is exactly what Scarlet intended to do, two years from their defeat of the Elder Dragon Zhaitan, the Pact have tentatively begun to assert their role as the self-appointed protectors of Tyria once more.
In the aftermath of the war against Mordremoth, the Vigil and the Pact as a whole are struggling to rebuild. With the destruction of the majority of the fleet, the Marshal being dead, and leadership passed around like candy amongst children, the future for the organised dragonslayers Is uncertain, but until the day a disbanding happens, the Chapter will fight for the people of Tyria.
The Ashen Chapter has a clear vision. To become a solid member of the community on Piken Square. We wish to deliver unique role-play, based around an extremely compelling and rich theme that is the Vigil. Not just standing around a tavern all day long. We wish to represent the Vigil as truthfully as possible, within the constraints of the game's mechanics.
What we offer:
We offer the full Vigil experience package. From standing around on guard, to taking down minions of the Elder Dragons, even dragon slaying when the need arises! We meet challenges with blunt force, but not without tactics where necessary. It's worth noting our RP style Is heavily Involved In PVE-RP, With very minor DMing on cases where It's needed. If you're wanting a full DM experience, Tach Isn't for you.
