Team Anvil update

By | DnD Campaign | No Comments

Hail and well met!

Chris, who plays Zardjo in the session I run on Tuesday nights, has volunteered to be our note-taker. The purpose of the notes are threefold. First, it always helps when one of the players keeps good notes in any campaign. Second, since we are running a campaign with multiple sessions, is it important for the other DMs and players to know what happens in your home session.  Finally, it allows us to create content on our website to make regular updates for those who are not playing with us.

Here is the report from our first session! Click on the image below.

MWH: DnD Campaign

By | DnD Campaign | One Comment

In the long drought of playable MMOs, MWH has turned towards pen and paper for a solution. As a guild we are running a “West Marches Style” DnD 5E campaign with multiple DMs and game sessions.  The goal is to create and play through a dwarven-centric story.  After two months we have successfully launched three stable game nights with the possibility of adding more in the future.

We do not have any plans to stream the sessions yet. However, we are hoping to update the website with player journals to help include the members that cannot currently play.  Roll20 has been a surprisingly easy tool to use to organize and build our world. There are still issues with synchronizing timelines and story continuity between nights, but we continue to refine on what has been a very successful experiment.

The first thing we wanted to share on the website is a player handout created by one of our DMs, Chris Holbert. Click on the image below to view or download the PDF.

Albion Online

By | Uncategorized | One Comment


Albion plays much like the original titles that launched many of us into the world of MMOs, it is nostalgia-land.

Deep crafting system, check. Simple and enjoyable combat, check. Challenging pve that punches you in the face for mistakes, check. OG-MMO grind (not as bad as korea-ville), check. Land ownership, check.  Full loot pvp, hell to the yes!

A few of us are already dabbling. Would love to see the rest of you jerkfaces. We are late to get on the wagon for this one, but the way the economy plays and the need for compartmentalization in both crafting and combat… the game plays to our strengths.

Relight the Great Forges! A New Website

By | Guild Maintenance | No Comments

MWH_WEB_HammerAnvilFor a very long time MWH has used much older software for our forums and website. With it, we have been through forum-implosions, hackers, drama, and the occasional member database wipe… *cough*… and now that era is over. This is our new vessel on the seas of the inter-webs with all the shiny goodness. The forums will still be there but they’re very trimmed down. Discord has replaced them as our primary form of communication.

One of the goals of the new site is to make our activities more visible. In the past the guild has operated behind closed doors. The appearance of stagnancy has hurt our recruitment effort and we seek to change that. The addition of a blog and event calendar will go a long way towards showing our dedication and camaraderie.

Another goal is to accommodate changes in the focus of our gaming community. The guild was created in and for MMOs. When someone stops playing a game like Shadowbane, Warhammer Online, or WoW they tend to disappear.  Sometimes members would trickle back for the next game, but for the most part we lost contact with them. We are hoping that scheduled sessions of Sins of a Solar Empire, Dungeons and Dragons, and other games that have a small time footprint will help create an environment that is inclusive. Enjoy the new site!  Hammers High!
