Because I'm in a generous mood, and amazon had the game for 50% off I am giving away ONE game code for HoT.  This is good to upgrade your account from a free/core account or to start a new account.

This is limited to Guild Wars 2 adherents, or any member of any branch with a rank of worshipper or higher (you either have to be in guild for GW2, or have petitioned for full membership).

To enter send me a PM on these forums with answers to the following questions and your gw2 ign (display name is preferred), if you have one.

If you want to be entered, post an answer to one of the above questions in this thread (that obviously has not been correctly answered), quoted below for convenience.  If you don't know the answers to any of them, look in this forum for clues or ask a knight or higher (useless bonus points will be awarded for getting a correct response from Minkor).

When and in what game was SoV founded?
In what game was the first SoV branch founded?
Which of the four BBQSANDGANG members was never a member of SoV?
SoV has fought in countless guild wars, which one were we at war with the longest and second longest?
Who was SoV's longest running ally and how did that alliance end?
What is the name of the SoV newspaper?
What is the archnemesis of the vilanocity guild?
SoV's name is the Swords of Villanousity, but what is the name of SoV's most famous weapon?
The guild SoV was founded in response to what other guild?
LEMON?
What is a Snert?
How do you become a guild officer in SoV?

If you can't find the answer to any of the questions on our forums, be creative (as of posting this there's only 3 questions that I can't remember where the info is located)

This contest ends on January 27th

Since there have been no entries in this so far, I am going to help everyone out and relax the rules a bit, as well as give a little guidance

Many years ago a guild called SoJ, the Swords of Justice, was formed in the Land of Evergreen to keep the peace1. But, where there is Light, there is also Darkness. And thus, SoV was formed.

I was joking with the overall standard of questions being fairly tough to begin with, dear. :)

Mm, it's a good prize and a fair quiz in context of that. It's not always easy to get people involved and interested.

And now, to completely (not) show up everyone else's knowledge...

When and in what game was SoV founded?
Freecell. 1991. Deal with it.

In what game was the first SoV branch founded?
An ill-fated foray into Solitaire, leading to the first guild split. They may be card games, but they're really not the same thing. :(

Which of the four BBQSANDGANG members was never a member of SoV?
Robert Mugabe.

SoV has fought in countless guild wars, which one were we at war with the longest and second longest?
Clearly SoV v SoV was the longest, with SoV v SoV coming in a close second place.

Who was SoV's longest running ally and how did that alliance end?
Dark Lotus. Except we screwed it up by actually allying them.

What is the name of the SoV newspaper?
My baby. :wub: I almost forgot that existed. I'm inches away from saying I'd do some regular updates on it again just for funsies.

What is the archnemesis of the vilanocity guild?
The guild's ongoing inability to get "Villanousity" to be a real word.

SoV's name is the Swords of Villanousity, but what is the name of SoV's most famous weapon?
Infighting, narrowly followed by "Mass LoF". No-one survives.

The guild SoV was founded in response to what other guild?
Going outside.

LEMON?
No, my drink is fine.

What is a Snert?
A SoViet sneeze.

How do you become a guild officer in SoV?
Sexual favours.
