Temple of the Vanguard

Temple of the Vanguard

A Fighting Company based out of the Kingdom of the Rising Winds.

"Vanguard is the number one class battling company in the Rising Winds, period." -Falias

"SWOOPING!!!!" -Heard at Bridge Wars 2016 as new members were recruited






Formed by Asche and Wat in April of 2012, Temple of the Vanguard (a.k.a "Vanguards", or "TVG") is a Fighting Company built on a theme of taoism-based extremist philosophy. The Temple of the Vanguard acknowledges the balance of all things implied by the concept of yin and yang, applied to a balance of good and evil forces (see "extremist" above ;) ) that guide the universe. Our structure reflects this balance.

The group grew and help to foster several members to Knighthood. TVG gain a reputation for pulling on the field shenanigans and breaking games. TVG may not have had the amount of armor that other companies wore, but they could hold their own when classes were involved. They also gained a reputation for fostering leaders within Amtgard.

At Keep on the Borderlands VI, several members of the company left over internal issues. Several key members decide to stay with the company. After moments of self-reflection, the company moved on with a new found vigor. At Bridge Wars 2016, TVG fielded and managed to worry a couple of the "top" companies by showing they weren't willing to lay down. They picked up several new members there as well.

We're here to have fun, and rock over-sized hoods.

Alignments: In addition to the Acolyte title, members will choose an alignment of either light or dark, in keeping with the theme of yin and yang. This also determines the basic configuration of your garb colors. This is for role play and ascetic purposes. It does not effect your company standing.

Light - Majority white-and-blue garb colors, minimal black.

Dark - Majority black-and-blue garb colors, minimal white.

Both alignments can wear the yin yang symbol.
