The Gilded House is synonymous with House Kimura, a Vaelune noble family known for their wealth, and having their fingers in many different "ventures". Over centuries, this minor noble house built itself up by being savvy merchants, diplomats, and politicians to greater houses, forming lasting bonds and unions that consecrated their bloodline. But what made them truly influential wasn’t their nobility, but the many ventures they invested in. Be it trade, taverns, or exploration, their successful ventures built them into a Gilded House.

While current generations have squandered the name, the house and its ventures seek anew. In a new world destined for opportunity & strife, the Gilded House stands together, unified as one.

WHO WE ARE
The Gilded House is a storytelling community that puts an emphasis on creating an immersive environment. We were established as a guild for Ashes of Creation but have evolved into a larger community cooperative. Our goal being, to engage with others in building a collaborative roleplay environment that is not limited by one concept, or guild. Currently our community is made up of 3 pillars that allow different characters to shape their own story.


WHAT WE OFFER
The Gilded House caters to a variety of different roleplayers. New and veteran roleplayers alike can find a home here with each of our pillars offering a different depth of story. We have recurring events, allowing new members to introduce their characters and get acquainted with membership. In addition, we strive to schedule events based on members' schedules, allowing for increased participation.

In addition, we also have content we deliver through our website and YouTube page that supports lore and story building for not just our community, but the greater Ashes community. We're very member driven, and ultimately the path we take as a community will be determined by our members, not by one individual.

    COMMUNITY

    You’ve probably seen it multiple times in various advertisements, but what is “Community” and what does it really mean? That’s a question everyone should ask as they look to become a part of any guild or company. For GH-RP, community means a group of people who work together towards a common goal. Though they may have different backgrounds or interests, they embrace a similar culture and thrive as one. We are not cultists, or looking to blow up one person’s ego. We enjoy comradery, and the free expression of ideas.

    Contact Information
    Guild Lead & House Liege: Sersei
    Gilded Ventures Provost: Nahelemyrunji
    Obsidian Order Commander: Zason

    House Kimura Sigil: The Leviathan

    HOUSE KIMURA | NOBILITY & POLITICS

    Through their ancestry, House Kimura can be traced back to Old Verra, serving as a merchant house in the Aelan empire. After the fall, House Kimura re-settled in Sanctus.

    The once small merchant house evolved on Sanctus, into a prosperous gilded house and over the centuries that passed, made additional investments. Forging alliances with other families and consecrating their bloodline. While there were some questionable unions, House Kimura has remained a largely Vaelune household.

    While much of their history on Sanctus tells the story of a rising noble house, In the past generation, House Kimura has suffered a fair amount of tragedy. The family matriarch was taken by a foreign illness in a single fortnight, leaving his lordship ever distraught. Additionally, A great union between House Kimura and their rival fell apart after the death of Sergio Kimura. The family’s only son and heir. The faltering union threatened to tear apart more than just one partnership but sought to undermine the many interests of House Kimura.

    Sersei Kimura, the only living child, and daughter of his lordship has found herself unexpectedly in a place of leadership, having to take the reins of her faltering household. Her father, left in a withering state, has given her instruction to travel to Verra. Taking the remaining household and its vassal states to settle anew and bring new fortune to this once gilded house.

    Gilded Ventures Sigil: The Raven

    GILDED VENTURES | EXPLORATION & DISCOVERY

    Gilded Ventures is an adventuring company that was formed around the same time as Phoenix Antiquities. Originally, Gilded Ventures was a competitor of Phoenix Antiquities. founded under a different name, and by a rival of House Kimura.

    But in Sanctus things shifted against the rival house, forcing them to offload the company for their own survival. House Kimura, through building strategic alliances, came to acquire the company. Rebranding it ‘Gilded Ventures’ as a knock against their former rivals.

    The company. unlike Phoenix Antiquities. deals mostly in exploration. Members of this group are well traveled adventurers, who take pride in venturing into the depths of any dungeon. They collect not just loot and rare artifacts, but information about the world and its histories.

    In the present, Gilded Ventures is a successful adventuring company that looks to venture into the world of Verra, alongside their allies and partners.

    Phoenix Antiquities Sigil: The Phoenix

    PHOENIX ANTIQUITIES | GOLD & GLORY

    Founded by House Kimura, Phoenix Antiquities started as a small trade house, buying and selling goods for a modest profit. Nothing too entrepreneurial, but a small gamble in the hopes of achieving some gains.

    Over generations, as House Kimura grew, so did their trading empire. In fact, one could go as far to suggest that their fates were intertwined. If a new business partnership was made, it was likely sealed through blood. A traditional, yet effective way to ensure lasting, and loyal partnerships.

    But even the most loyal partnerships can falter. A great loss by House Kimura, brought Phoenix Antiquities to near demise. The trading house lost vital partnerships that resulted in more losses than one could expect, making the path forward a struggle.

    In the present, House Kimura has signaled an intent to re-settle Verra. Phoenix Antiquities, as a loyal vassal to their liege will follow, seeking to settle their losses and hopefully make new gains.

    Obsidian Order Sigil: The Wolf

    THE OBSIDIAN ORDER | BLOOD & STEEL

    The Obsidian Order is a recent addition to House Kimura. The Order was originally a mercenary guard, bought and paid for by House Kimura, to expand their house guard.

    They would serve the household for a generation, before they were officially brought in under the banner of House Kimura. The lord Kimura himself, took them under his wing and reformed the guard, placing a loyal commander at its head.

    The order is based on a creed of Blood & Steel. Though their commanders change, the creed stays the same. The order are first and foremost protectors. They do not seek out war, but will respond at the call, and protect those in need.

    In the present, the order is undergoing a transition. A new commander has been named, and the order is making preparations to lead the envoy into Verra.
  • What I enjoy about GH is the community it strives to build. We have new, and veteran role-players, hardcore and casual gamers, it's a melting pot of people. It feels genuine.

  • Community is a big part of this group, and it shows in how things have grown in just the last couple months. We chat, play games, and follow the hype of each livestream.

    Each month we have a guild meeting to go over the most recent ashes info, livestream, and guild topics and feedback. It's refreshing at this stage to be part of a guild that grows with its members.

    I am one of their newer members and I have to say its been a great experience. The leadership is great and we are digging into Archeage currently while we wait for Alpha 2 to launch; We do host monthly meetings to discuss the live streams and many of our members have Alpha 2 entry as well as some have played Alpha 1. We plan to hit Alpha 2 stages and Beta stages hard to aquire what information we can and share it with our members both new and old.

    As RP is a focus of the community I can tell you the backstory, development and creation of our group will fit well with the world of which Ashes has created. I say this because it'll be adaptable to the lore we discover and learn with the rest of the players flooding into the game. Lastly - We believe a healthy RP Community is a strong community for all. Working with other Guilds and such is on our mind as Roleplayers will be the ones responsible for making that type of gameplay accessible.

    Being a member of Gilded House has been a truly delightful experience. As Nahele Myrunji, I have been a part of this community since November 11th, 2022. The decision to join this esteemed group was an effortless one, and it has proven to be an excellent platform for cultivating new friendships and establishing early connections ahead of Ashes of Creation's official launch, if not Alpha Two. I have every reason to believe that I will continue to be a part of this exceptional community for an extended period to come.

    Hello Everyone!

    Time for another Velociraptor breakdown of the Gilded House's guild updates! I'm excited to bring to you the latest in Gilded News, Gilded Role-play, and all things gold about our community! Strap in for this week's adventure!

    First, I'm pleased to note that we continue to have over a dozen Role-play threads running, with two new threads starting since our last update. We're preparing for our Dice System test event to create a truly unique and personalized rolling system for our community. Simple, easy to use, but diverse enough so that every character is unique with unlimited potential to make their character special.

    Since our last tales from our Guild Discord, we've had a large number of our members get involved in our Conan Exiles official server. This usually involves a lot of building, a lot of exploring, and a fare number of poor NPCs being dragged off to people's bases as support staff. We have several very experience people in the guild helping new players engage in the world of Conan.

    I'm more than a little excited to announce Zason has stepped up into the role of our PVP Lead for the guild! He'd doing exciting things as he gets Gilded House prepared for the adventure of a lifetime in Ashes of Creation! With a great background in PVP and Storytelling, we're happy to have him helping drive Gilded House into the PVP world we'll soon be entering.

    Sersei and I were part of The Golden Feather's Podcast about Ashes of Creation this week! It was an exciting experience, a lot of fun, and gave us a chance to really talk about our guild values, what we have done, what we want to do, and what we're all about.
