All members were called by the guild leaders.
They were told to gather inside the main hall of the still under construction guild house.
Some time has passed already. They suspect something is coming.
Members were whispering among themselves.
"Why did they call us?"
"Maybe they need us to help with some sort of new mission?
Rumors can be heard and the curiosity is drawn on their faces.
"Yeah a new mission.. can we go already? I was planning to pack for Astera today." Someone called out sarcastically.
"The doors of the main hall swing open and Idrial, the guild master, enters the room. As she walks in all conversations in the background went silent, all eyes now turned towards her"
Her presence immediately made the atmosphere brighter.
Out of line with the Guild Leaders, Idrial steps forward and starts to talk.
"I am so happy that everyone could make it! I have a great announcement to share with you.
As you all know, our Guild House is almost finished and you can sniff around very soon.
But that is not all. I wanted to see you all because I have a request for you".
Some members stood up right away, with a royal attitude, showing that they are ready no matter what.
"Many of us have been together for many years. For a long time our guild has been a place to stay regardless of their situation and it still is for those who recently chose to join us.. Let's show the world we are here for everyone.
Let's work together once more, this time we won't be taking down some Gods but to show Vindictus the true power of our Black Tornado".
"From the grounds, To the skies!" everyone shout out in harmony.
Idrial's heart started beating faster, filled with joy. Such a strong and happy feeling she never felt before, by seeing everyone, showing what they stand for... what we stand for... we are BlackTornado!
Idrial whispers shyly "Just follow my steps" and winks.
Each Leader has their own tasks to focus on. Members know what we are up to and what to expect from us. As for leaders ourselves, we can focus much better on that what we are meant for. This way we can be of better use which results in better quality.

It is such a beautiful and sunny day, cold but the weather is in a perfect mood.
Riordan, Captain of the Royal Army is making his way towards the base.
He is always going there. "Nowhere else to go" he said. So you won't ever find him at the bar, any shop or in the garden. If you see him outside the gates or at the docks, he is probably departing for a mission.
Riordan, acting like he is in a rush, made his way through the gates. He could hear someone talking upstairs, it sounds like a speech. Immediatly he is walking up the stairs and..
A tear is slowly rolling down from his face, the moment he looks up and sees the Royal Army Base filled with BlackTornado members.
"Good day sir Riordan" says Idrial, as she offers a heartly welcome.
Idrial, continues her speech. "Tonight we will party here! Food and drinks will be ordered here. And soon, very soon, we will party at our own Guild House!
Having our next party and guild screenshot at our guild house.
Maybe at the swimming pool or perhaps the disco place.
- We have a guild story which is still expanding. The story is made up of different parts:
Formation, Redeemers and The Tale of BlackTornado.
Redeemers can be read already, Formation is still not finished. The Tale of BlackTornado is not available yet.
- Upon joining our guild you will get access to a lot of stuff. Many fun things will be available for you.
- We are active on Discord and sometimes we poke each other in calls, this will maintain the fun during battles.
- Every half a year we will gather, for a new Guild Screenshot. The most recent one is shown in this post.
Others are stored on our guild website.
- We have a forum with a lot of information.
With posts about AP system, Enchant -, Enhancement -, Reforge - , and the Season 3 system.
Boss Guides and of course our own Guild Events and much more!
- Our guild channel is 129, since the first day of Vindictus XE Europe.
- In the first year of the game the name of the guild was BlackTornadoIII
- Our guild never fell apart or disbanded.
- Idrial: I've put more time and effort in this guild and its members than I put into my jobs or study. And I will be keep doing that!
Without the help of members and leaders, it will be very hard to keep a guild running well.
I'm so thankful for everything they have done so far for me, for eachother and for the guild.
yea i agree everyone should earn the Emblem and title..
i was waiting... and waiting.. and waiting to login.
at 17:25 i was able to login, to come online adn set up my party asap.
then on this forum, some people already made premade post and edit it.
It is not a problem really but the point about this event is, its not like a true Race.
when we ALL start at the same line... and first at finish is the winner..
But with this Event.. Nope, now some people had a chance to start 5 min earlier. So its like starting 500 meters ahead of me.
it doesn't sounds fair.
Back then at Vindictus Europe we had to clear a battle asap and post the time. someone who posted later, but killed it faster was the winner.
Of course it is still Pay2Win, people with OP gear always win those events so yea, its very hard to make a fair event.
Still waiting for a balanced PvP tho.
anyway, lets hope for the best. cuz i was focussed on one thing: Title: Red Stigma Conqueror
Thanks OrtRisa for the post. I've read everything and I do agree with the notes you made, except I don't care much about the 'Consumable Items'.
For years I've been trying to write forum posts / tickets, asking nexon to forward it to KR.
Nexon can't make any changes, but they are our connection to KR.. so let's hope Nexon will take it serious for once.
The game changed a lot indeed, mostly in a bad way in my opinion. Vindictus is a guilds game after all.. Devcat should focus on it!
The 5 most important, crucial things I wish I could force them to give us:
- Combo System: Before it was the challenge to do not get hit. Now it doesn't matter anymore at all. I still need the title "Addicted to HP Potions!" because I always tried to not get hit, as it will reward me with extra dmg.
- 8-man raid: By removing this, they smashed a hole into the game and the hearts of players. For active guilds, the 8-man raids are important. Now the raids are boring, I have to disappoint to many members that I can't take them with me as I can only take 3 with me at a time. Now we can't organize things either, the good old Malina late night train... good good times
- Guild Buff: Since the moment they removed it, we complained already. Its a guilds game, when members play together, they should be rewarded! TEAM PLAY +yay
- PvP: PvP is getting better slowly on.. but indeed still unbalanced. My guild likes to play PvP and we hope if they balance PvP more, peeps will have interests to join. Bring back Guild vs Guild!
- Channels: Further I am very, VERY against the idea of Jynxi! In fact, they should offer more channels! Channel 1 - 3 will stay free open channels.. and rest private (buy a channel). Channel 1 will become the trading center again. While guild can have their own channel, and money for Devcat/Nexon.
Permanent Shared Storage would be great to have it back! Only then it is worth to spend money on.
Tho it is still unfair that there are still some items which cannot be transferred through the shared storage to another character, while we pay for it..
Like the Restoration Scroll and Restoration Discount Scroll.
