"House of Penton is a guild of people from levels 1 and up. We are a fun loving guild made up of friendly players. We enjoy having a good time with no pressure. I have been playing DDO since 2006. We don't like drama, whiners, or quitters. Some of us have kids so we do understand if you have to leave unexpectedly. We just don't like people to leave us high and dry for no reason. If you just injoy playing DDO with good patient people this may be the guild for you. We make no demands and expect none to be made. New players are welcome same as old. Contacts are OWAM (Leader), LisaMischel (Officer), REMOS (Officer), Sizzzler (Officer), Wilayreden (Officer) and Ariass (Officer). We Play on Argonnessen. Thank you, and Good Gaming."

Damaged Inc, of the Ghallanda server

"We are not a large guild, but the members we do have are devoted to fun, humor, and character progress. we often cuss and call each other outrageous names, but its all in good fun. most members log on at nighttime est, and we have enough guildies to form an all guild group almost every night. I like to think we have a few elite caliber players, but developing players are welcome as well if they are willing to learn and have a similar mindset to the game. We could always use some some more like minded players, so if anyone wants to join, send an in game mail to dergan or phenobarb and we would be happy to run with you to see if you would make a good fit. We look forward to smoking the world of Eberron with everyone"De Opresso Liber, of the Khyber server

Hi Tolero

With mod 8 you take off the +2 to AC while TWF to the Tempest Ranger enhancement on level 6, but do you have any news on how the Tempest enhancement line is going to expand?

Thanks a Lot

Yup, level 20 is coming with 9 :)

Not that I really expect an answer, but are you expecting to go past 20? Or is 20 tentatively scheduled to be the highest achievable level?

Thanks for the guild plug!
