Flight of the Dragon
The "Flight of the Dragon" guild, more commonly known by others as FD, was created on 11 July 2011.
The values of the FD are known by and imparted to all members:
"Loyalty, Integrity, and Friendship"
Our guild will stand out from the others, and stand together as one! We're not just a dragon guild, we're the Flight of the Dragon!
FD isn't just your typical dragon guild.
We are not dragon worshippers, nor are we dragon slayers. In a way, we are dragon tamers, but to be more exact, we are Dragon Riders. We valiantly ride on the backs of dragons and take to the skies! We don't just ride any dragon - each dragon is like a friend and is treated like one of us. In other words, they are our partners, not our servants. They are our friends, not our pets. And they are one of us, dragons of the FD.
We admire the Dragon's ability and skill in flight, and thus this guild was created in their honor, the Flight of the Dragon! We shall also be the ones to protect and free the dragons of Godville!
For years, dragons in Godville have been mistreated. They are killed, hunted, and even eaten by heroes, like the Panzer Dragon. Heroes might argue: "But look at the Grayscale Dragon! It's one of the most fearsome monsters of Godville, and it has to be killed before it kills us!" It is true that dragons terrorize the people of Godville, but do all of them do that? Every hero has another side, a dark past, and so do dragons. The legendary dragons are declining in population (and popularity). Of course, if a dragon is truly terrorizing people out of pure evil intent, we will unleash our Dragon Slayer side.
The "Flight of the Dragon" guild emphasizes on freedom and free will. The dragons we ride on are given as much freedom as the Dragon Riders themselves. All our heroes join FD of their free will, and likewise, leave of their own will too.
To make guild life in FD more interesting, we do have competitions, role-playing, and stuff like a guild noticeboard and a forum thread. Every member plays a part in FD and we can all make the guild awesome together!
FD's motto was not something that was chosen for no reason. Neither was it chosen because it sounded "cool" (although it is rather cool).
'Carpé diem!', in Latin, means 'Seize the day!'.
It is a motto that drives our members to work hard, and not waste a moment of time, thereby seizing the day! As members of the "Flight of the Dragon" guild, 'Carpé diem!' also symbolizes the Dragon's seizing of the sky!
It is a motto that every loyal member of FD honors, to the very end.
The guild is organized into:
The Dragon Council - The decision-making council of the FD that leads and protects the guild.
The Guild Officers - Members of the guild with important roles. They work together with the Dragon Council to keep the guild running.
The Mercenaries - Members of the guild (senior members listed.) Without them the guild will never be complete.
Former Members - Members come and go everyday, but these were the first members of the guild, who laid down the foundations for our rise, or have given contributions to the guild, and hence an honorable mention is awarded to them.
Senior Dragon Riders.

The very first member of FD, it was thanks to him that we entered the pantheons for the first time. He was also the first to leave XD
and Smoot Puppie
One of the early members of FD. He joined by accident, but stayed anyway. He was also a great friend, and still is. He has left for Soul Reapers, which is a good guild, honestly, and we hope he'll enjoy it there XD
and KaiEn, the blade-wielding riders of the ice-breathing Sky Dragon
The illustrious founder of our guild, Ichi has moved on and left the guild in our care. We are eternally grateful for his trailblazing efforts and we wish him success.
In order for the guild to stay together, communication is important.
In FD, there are 3 main ways of communication:
The Guild Wiki page (This page right here) - Gives information about FD
The Guild Noticeboard (The discussion page of the Guild Wiki) - Guild Announcements and news
The Guild Forum Thread (Forum) - A place for members to chat and ask questions
To all members of FD, please use these forms of communication to interact with the guild :)
