Rift Player Driven RvR Campaign Finale Happening Tonight

Updated Tue, Sep 06, 2011 by Medawky

One of the hallmarks of a great game is that of a strong community, and few in recent memory can rival the one developing in Rift. In a prime example of the power of player driven events The Gaiscioch Family, a Guardian guild on the Faeblight server, hosted a long running event known as The Telara Saga.

This community building series started in early march and embarks on its final chapter this evening, August 9th, at 6pm Pacific/9pm Eastern. The Defiant capital of Meridian will play unwilling host to the culmination of this epic adventure, when the Guardian forces led by Foghladha seek to breach the walls and slay the factions leaders. More about the event from the official website:

Death spews from the planar tears that the Defiant Orphiel Farwind opened. First the consumption of the great Port Scion, and then the rest of Telara. The Gods will sit idle while Orphiel and Asha Catari continue to unravel the fabric of Telara. The Gods first brought back the Mathosian General Cyril Kalmar, A High Elven priestess Shyla Starhearth and Great Dwarven General Borrin Gammult to lead an army of reborn Guardians in reunifying Telara under the Banner of the Vigil.

The Telara Saga tells a tale of the rebirth of the Guardians, their trials to fortify their homelands, and amass an army to take down the heathen Defiant's capital city. Champions from far and wide gather in this weekly community driven public event. The Guardians advance on Meridian, can the Defiant stop them or will they turn and cower as Aedraxis did in the past.

The Gaiscioch Family is a multi-game guild that has hosted similar events in other popular MMOGs including Dark Age of Camelot and Warhammer Online. Come join in the RvR fun if you are able to and be on the lookout for the next massively epic event.

Wow, Never been to Faeblight, but I'm extremely jealous of such an amazing community...This maybe the single purpose me and my guild transfer's servers...

Good Luck Gaiscioch and post videos!!! (btw how do your pronounce this?)

It's pronounced "Gosh Kia" or "Gawsh-Kee-Okh" depending on which side of Ireland your from. The name is derived from an Irish legend found within the Lebor Gabála Érenn which chronicles the first people of Ireland the Tuatha de Danaan. Specifically the First Battle of Moyturna where the Tuatha de Danaan hand picked the most honorable and loyal warriors to fight along side the Celtic gods in a battle against the Fir Bolg. These Guardians of the Gods were the Gaiscioch.
