Grand Master’s Note

“This guild is formed with the purpose of creating a friendly and non-pressure environment. We know that the majority of the players here are either students or working adults. With this in mind, you can either be active in contributing to the Guild or just log in for your dailies. It’s all fine. This Guild values Volunteerism as one of its Core Values and just play as you see fit. Just note that whatever you may do and wherever you may be, being part of the Guild means you carry the name of our Guild. Praise the Black Sun!”

Grand Master Ibarra

Who is the Grand Master?

Grand Master Ibarra, the de facto Guild Master of the Order of the Black Sun. Though there’s the Grand Council of the Black Sun, absolute power and the final decision, lies on the Grand Master.

In every video games he always goes by the name of “Montgomery Ibarra” or “Ibarra” for short, those close to him call him “Monty,” but who actually is Montgomery Ibarra?

Simple, he owns and manages this website. But for him, not everything is about video games.

His real name is Andrei Jarell G. Vedad – a Filipino gamer, and writer.

Praise the Black Sun

Our motto is simple: “Praise the Black Sun!

At first, it was just a running joke by Grand Master Ibarra for the guild’s name, comparing it to Dark Souls’ “Praise the Sun!” Grand Master Ibarra always including the phrase “Praise the Black Sun!” in all of his announcements and as an alternative for wishing someone good fortunes, it evolves to become the guild’s motto.

As stated earlier, Grand Master Ibarra makes mini-stories/FanFiction for his website, and that would mean role-playing. We pride ourselves, not just a Casual PvX Guild, but also as a Role-Playing Guild.

Praise the Black Sun!
