Compendium Page: http://compendium.ddo.com/wiki/Guild:The_Exploration_Society
"As a guild what we respect most is our diversity of people and playstyles. Our members enjoy leveling, looting and raiding at different paces. Our attitude tends toward a more laid-back approach to the game with serious emphasis on developing our guild community. We do this through an active and often lively (but rarely crude) guild chat, a fantastic website for communication and event scheduling, and a core of officers and veteran members that can navigate the finer mechanical points of the game."

Game Tip of the Week

"Sunflasks are festive and fun, but did you know they can deal a lot of damage to undead enemies? Hurling sun flasks at undead can help significantly reduce their hit points or destroy them entirely if the damage is great enough!"
