Vor and myself hashed out the schedule for the structure changes and elder council voting for 2014 tonight. We'll be behind schedule for our normal 21st of December for the changer over but we think its best to make sure we get this right then meet that deadline.
First up will be the structure changes, a week for proposals followed by a week of voting. With those in place we'll have 5 days for nominating Elders followed by a week for voting. This will give us our structure and elders for 2014 by the 1st.

Congratulations to Altoric, our new Elder for the remainder of the year 2013! He will be taking over for Derel as he regrettably steps down for real-life reasons.
A huge thanks to Derel for his superb service, first as a member of the Elder Council in 2012, and then as First Elder for 2013. His presence on the Council will be sorely missed, and I look forward to a time when he will be able to run for the position once again.
Thank you again for all your hard work and dedication, Derel. And welcome to the Council, Elder Altoric!

Hail and well met, Kinsman! We have entered the summer months of the year, and are approaching the midway point of the year. Some great things are happening in the Guard of late, and on behalf of the Elder Council I would like to recognize these activities.
First, the call of space has once again been heard strongly in these Glades, and our kin have once again set sail to the stars of New Eden. The Guard is active in multiple sectors, including wormhole space, nullsec space, and have taken to the battlefields of faction warfare. Our Guardsmen in New Eden have once again proven that we are a force to be reckoned with, and have brought honor and ISK to the Guard.
Second, the Aldarem has opened the way to Tamriel. As we have learned more and more about the game, we have become steadfast to make our way in The Elder Scrolls Online. An interest forum has been set up, and discussions have begun to decide the path we will forge in search of the Ruby Throne. All of our kin is welcome to be apart of the discussions that have begun.
Lastly, we have long had a position of recognition in Proper that has long been underused. It is my opinion that it is time we use it for what we meant it for. For this reason, I am proposing that Proper elevate one of our members to the rank of Tracker. I believe that one of our brothers, Altoric, has proven himself in his leadership and dedication to the Guard in his leadership of our Guild Wars 2 Chapter, as well as being a positive influence on the Guard overall (however much he denies it). Proper members, look to the Hollow for more on this.
Walk with the Mother, my brothers and sisters!

Derel walks to the platform that leads to the portals to the various worlds that are traveled by the Guard. Many portals to many worlds have at various times been open and accessible from this platform.
Stepping up to the portal to Tyria, Derel kneels down on both knees, places his right hand on the platform, and bows his head. His lips move, but the words spoken cannot be heard.
The portal begins to shrink in size, and then winks out of existence.
"It is done. The way to Tyria is closed. All who wish to return to this land must seek the Aldarem."

Greetings from the Elder Council! As we wind down the first quarter of the year, we would like to bring you a State of the Guard report.
At the end of 2012, the Guard Proper voted on new changes to the structure of the Elder Council. As such, our Elder Council is now a body of three Elders elected at large by Proper. The three choose from among themselves one who will lead the council. The 2013 Elder Council members are Derel, Vornonwe, and Eniala.
The Guild Wars 2 chapter is still active. While small and casual, the Guard can still be found roaming the fields of battle in World vs World, and still thriving. Altoric has been an excellent leader in keeping the chapter alive and well. Activities are held twice a week, on Monday and Tuesday nights.
EVE Online has found another spark of life in Wormhole Space. A small fleet can be found laying claim in the wormhole for fortune and glory. Also, there are those pilots fighting in Nullsec space against some of the top pilots in the galaxy.
As the first beta events of The Elder Scrolls Online approaches, many in the Guard are making preparations to enter that world and spread our influence across the war torn remnants of the Empire. Keep watch for the Aldarem to open the path to Tamriel.
May the Mother keep watch over all of us, and keep Aldalonde strong!

The time has come to vote for the 2013 Elder Council! We have a strong list of candidates this year who are competing for one of three seats. The candidates are as follows (in alphabetical order):
Each candidate has filled out a questionnaire on their ideas for the next term. These can be viewed in The Tree of Raunia.
Good luck to all!

Each year around November TSG-Proper gets together to nominate and vote in the new Elder Council of The Sundered Guard. This year, like last year, ideas were brought up on how we could improve upon the Elder Council and so, before the nominations/voting for our new overlords begins we had discussions and got together several ideas on how the Council could be changed.
These proposals are currently being voted on in the Hollow in five separate polls. If you are a member of TSG-Proper please make sure to vote in each poll after reading the options. If you can't see the Hollow the topics of the five polls are included below:
Poll #1 serves as the master poll and, as always, a 2/3rds majority is required to make any changes. Assuming Poll #1 gets the 2/3rds majority all other poll need only the majority to pass as there are several options in each poll.
The Elders are more than happy to provide the full contents of every poll if anyone is interested, however as they are quite lengthy only a brief description of option #2 will be posted here unless a more detailed one is desired by any member.
The overview listed above include only the highlights of each option. With few exceptions most of these options are similar with only minor differences between each one. These polls will run until Friday night and the new system will be put in place for the next Elder term, which begins on December 21st, the Winter solstice.
If anyone has any questions about the election system, the voting system, TSG-Proper, the Elder Council, or is interested in joining TSG-Proper please speak up, either in this topic or by sending a PM to Petrus, Derel, Hallit, or Voronwe.

The Guild Wars 2 Pre-release Launch begins, officially, midnight tomorrow!
They may be opening the servers up a few hours early. Expect to see us online, clicking the login button every 5 minutes in our Mumble server. Hope to see you there!
The Sundered Guard has officially picked Jade Quarry! If for some reason the server is full, Tarnished Coast will be our backup.
During the first week, server transfers will be free, so level up your character until they allow more people in. It looks like Jade Quarry will be heavily populated, so be prepared.

I know it is short notice, but the Elder Council would like to try an have another guild wide meeting this Sunday at 8pm EST in Mumble/Echo Rock. Among other things we can celebrate the upcoming release of Guild Wars 2, and just have a fun time hanging out with each other, which is what we are all about. Hope to see you there.

The Sundered Guard took the largest castle in the game during the stress test! Special thanks to our allies Servius Sancti and Oromea for their efforts in defending it.
Jade Quarry faced off against Yak's Bend and Darkhaven, the results speak for themselves:
