This guild was formed from the fallen blooms of The Red Rose guild which was started on 27 October 2005 by Nymph of Meliai and Sir Luther Valdamor. We decided to change guilds because ROSE was made on the European server at a time when guilds were fixed to area servers preventing access to Under World and Fissure of Woe. Unfortunately the only way at that time to transfer the guild completely to the American server was to start a new guild on the 26 March 2006. Furthermore the guild at the time was heavily involved in GvG becoming a top 30 ranked guild by the summer of 2006 - with the majority of pvp players based in America. The name for the guild was chosen from the story by Hans Christian Anderson, The Snow Queen. It was chosen for two reasons, firstly, we wanted to use the word SNOW as our reference to replace the word ROSE - nobody in GW at the time used the word SNOW while lots used Rose and at the time we liked to spend alot of time farming in the Southern Shiverpeaks with Mineral Springs being a favourite area of Nym. Secondly, the story not only refers to SNOW but has a small rhyme referring to Roses that gave good reference to the previous guild transforming. The Mirror of Reason is the home of the Snow Queen and she describes it as unique and special - the only one of its kind in the world... what better name for a guild formerly known as The Red Rose that wanted to use the word SNOW. The current cape is based on the repeated mention of flowers and roses in the story. "Often at midnight she (Snow Queen) flies through the streets, and peeps in at all the windows, and then they freeze in such pretty patterns and look like flowers." The reason that the cape uses the old torn trim format is because it represents age - we are a guild of experienced players not new to the game with shiny new capes. The guild is there for people to work as a team and to have fun - not to spend 100% of your time solo farming. Similarly we are not a faction farming guild (we have done that in the past and owned Zos Shivros Channel but keeping towns becomes more like a job than a game for fun). Our prime focus is HM PvE content with a bias towards titles and HoM but we do some HM speedclear elite areas and sometimes delve into the realms of PvP (just don't expect alot of pvp). Mirror of Reason's philosophy is not to take the game so seriously that it stops being fun, and they remind themselves of this on a regular basis. Guild Wars is a place SNOW aspires to constantly enjoy. However, members can sometimes forget this greater goal when focused too intensely on the moment. When overcoming a challenge becomes work rather than fun, it's time to step back and remember what's important. SNOW aims to become well known for its active participants, fun-loving nature, and helpful members. We think of ourselves as a good-cheer mafia: once you're in, you never really leave. New recruits must seek to be treated with respect, enjoy a good laugh, and be interested in trying out the variety of activities the game has to offer. Personality and activity are the two most important factors for SNOW. Please read the guild and Anet rules and regulations - if you break our rules you will be kicked, if you break Anet rules we WILL report you. I hope you enjoy your game play with us at The Mirror of Reason Please try to recruit people you can vouch for (invite a friend etc) and lets make this guild and the alliance the most important in GW - we are already an official notable guild but we can be much more. Nym
