It's been almost too long since our last front page feature, and you can likely blame my ongoing battle with ESO addiction for that. But while we're on the topic of ESO, I would very much like to introduce you all to an RP guild that has quite literally revolutionized my ESO experience.
They call themselves the Crimson Razor, and they are among the longest running, most successful roleplaying guilds in the entire PC NA server.
The Crimson Razor involves an ongoing roleplaying story set in the Elder Scrolls Universe, with most roleplaying revolving around the Elder Scrolls Online game where the majority of the guild's activity occurs. Much like The Sky Forge community, members of the Crimson Razor take immense pride in writing characters and stories, and most importantly supporting others who wish to do the same. Should you happen to join the guild your character(s) will find themselves immersed in an epic overarching storyline vastly larger than any one character.
The guild places a heavy emphasis on character driven stories and development. Each character is free to make their own choices, and have their own stories to tell. In fact, its best think of the Crimson Razor as a giant fantasy book where all the players come together to add a few more chapters to the story. It is not a single author writing the book, but rather many. The book is being written in real time, with characters evolving throughout the story. The very core of the Razor is that it is a place for people to have a venue to practice their writing, or to find joy in the creation of stories with other people. However, there is a general theme to the guild.
The Crimson Razor is a dark RP guild with cult-like themes and intense scenes, which means there is quite a bit of mature content. The Crimson Razor embraces creative freedom, but still adheres to laws and rules meant to ensure an enjoyable experience for everyone, and that no person’s writing harms nor damages that of another. At a minimum the guild requires its members to adhere to Elder Scrolls lore and respect the work of their fellow writers. Many hands work together to write this grand story, and thus no one character is more important than another.
This is a guild for writers and roleplayers of all levels who take joy in the craft. Perhaps the guild's greatest offersing is an entire community of creative individuals working among supportive peers to hone their writing skills. So, whether you've been roleplaying for years or have never even heard of the concept til you read this post, the guild welcomes you.
If you're still undecided, then take it from me, a man with neither a shred of writing talent nor roleplaying experience, that I've enjoyed every minute of my time in the Crimson Razor.
For those interested, joining the is simple. The links below will take you to the guild's Discord server and website. There you'll be warmly welcomed and asked to fill out a simple application briefly describing your character. Once that's done a guild officer will conduct a very brief in-character interview, then you're in!
