Introduction

Sometimes, when you're sick, feeling depressed, or just a little down, a hug can somehow make everything better. Hugs are truly wonderful, so Hug Central was created for lovers of hugs and all things simple, warm and comforting.

Hug Central is a light-hearted, big-hearted and fun-loving guild full of people who love both giving and getting hugs. Our mission, other than simply to enjoy ourselves, is to provide a place where anyone, regardless of personality, guild, level or anything else can come if they ever need someone to cuddle.

Our rules are:

  1. Be nice
  2. Hug people
  3. That's pretty much it

Although we say "Be nice", that does not mean we dislike those with evil alignments, you can still eat your kitten sandwiches as long as nobody is made uncomfortable by it. It just means that if you're going to do something start a food fight, don't throw food at people who don't want to get messy. Basically, don't upset our members or our guests. And as for "Hug people", unless you are a member you are not obliged to hug anyone, but someone else may very well hug you.

If you are a member (or supporter) of Hug Central, we encourage you to put our symbol: ♡ in your motto. This spreads the news of our guild to anyone who sees you in the pantheons or even the godville times. This is optional, but we would appreciate it.


History

After he gained his 1st rank Careerist achievement, Brinjal had no reason to stay in his guild. As a result, he found himself wandering from guild to guild, unsure of what to do. He joined the guilds his friends were in, and left them for another without staying long at all. He had no guild any more, he was a wanderer, changing guilds over and over, hoping to find one where he felt he belonged. At this point, you may be expecting to hear that he had a vision which explained to him that his divine purpose as chosen by the holy great random was to found a guild, or that was given a quest by a mysterious man to create a guild to bring joy to the land of godville, but it was in fact a lot more mundane. One day, he sat down and thought about all his friends, and how whenever he was having a bad day, he could always rely on one of them to give him a hug and cheer him up.

But then, a sad thought came to him, that there must be many gods out there who have few friends, or friends who are reluctant to hug. Gods who have nobody to wrap their arms around and squeeze until they forget their troubles. Brinjal thought this to be a tragic situation. He wanted to help them. One solution would be to just set up a stall giving out free hugs, but no, that was not enough. He alone couldn't end this, it would take a whole guild. And so, he made up his mind, he would create a guild with the aim of delivering hugs to all those in need and bringing happiness to the lonely gods of godville. And this guild would be called Hug Central. And with that, he went off to get a guild hall built.


Guild Hall

Our signature drink glows slightly due to the magic it contains.
Everyone is welcome here, and you can be sure of a warm welcome and a warm hug, so please drop by, even if you are not a member. Our main hall is spacious and has big sofas, comfy armchairs (which are slightly larger than most to allow someone to comfortably sit next to you and give you a hug) and little tables to put any food or drinks on, as well as a fireplace that crackles and pleasantly warms the place in the winter.

We have a kitchen where we prepare food that like a hug is simple, yet comforting and we have plenty of spare bedrooms with big, soft beds if you wish to stay the night. If you are looking for a drink, we have a bar, which although not the best in godville (that honour goes to the bar at Ankh-Morpork City Watch) stocks a range of drinks including our own signature drink- Warm Embrace. The recipe is a secret but we can confirm that it contains the juices of several fruits and a small amount of magic which it allows it to give the same warmth that alcohol can provide without being intoxicating.

So whatever you want, be it a place to sit, a bed for the night, some food and drink or of course a hug, we can give you just that, so visit us any time. We'll be happy to see you!


Recruitment

If what you have read has made you want to join our guild, then that is wonderful. At Hug Central we are always looking for more beautiful people to join our ranks, but by beautiful we don't mean flawless skin or luxurious hair, we know that outer beauty is worth almost nothing next to inner beauty. In our recruits we look for people who are:

  • Kind
  • Friendly
  • Helpful
  • Polite

And of course

  • Hug-loving!

We also value chubbyness because the more features you share with a teddy bear, the more huggable that makes you!
But even if you don't think you have all these values, we would be happy to have you since we are a very welcoming guild and don't have overly high standards when it comes to recruits. The only thing we insist upon is that you be happy to give and receive hugs.

If you wish to join us, simply wait until your hero is out of town and not fighting a monster, then tell them: Join the "Hug Central" guild until they start off on a quest to join us. But do not tell them to cancel their quest first. And don't try this if your hero is under level 12, because at that level they are not eligible to join a guild.

However, once your hero joins the guild, until they reach Cardinal rank after 135 days, they may be tricked into accepting quests to join another guild. Should this happen, tell your hero: Cancel your quest until they change their mind.


Hugs

Sometimes if you want to give someone a hug, just typing *hug* isn't enough. If you want something more visual, here are some ASCII hugs:

\(^-^)/
◟(^▾^)◞
(っˆヮˆ)っ
\(◕‿◕)/
(っ◕ヮ◕)っ
(っ⌒‿⌒)っ
(◞◕⌣◕)◞
(>^-^)>
>----(^-^)----<
↖(^ω^)↗

If you have another variation that isn't on this list, stop by the forums and give us a hug so we can put it here!
