KA is one of the leading forces on JQ. Therefore, we will be a main contributor to the newly established Warchest. Again, in an effort to support JQ and prevent lulls in coverage, we're going to start up a donation system. Once weekly, players will be asked to donate 3-5g (or whatever they can offer) to the guild bank. This will be used for the guilds personal warchest as well as a placement holder for what KA donates to the server as a whole. While this may sound like we're asking a lot, I just want to remind you that, on average, players make 10g per raid (incl mats and such). SO asking for 5g really shouldn't break the bank. Please understand that this is not a forced taxed and is not mandatory but is strongly enouraged to help our server and lessen the burden on the commanders/guilds that we have now.

Not only will this help the server but we will be keeping 30% or so for the guild to help siege/food/other things we may need. So please do your part and help your server and your guild.

Note: Please direct all donations to the guild bank so we have a record of them.

The goal for this will start with 500g by next reset. Lets see how close we can get!

Siege Sessions / Guild Food Drive

Lemongrass: 5g per hour
Asparagus & sage: 2g per hour
Rare veggie pizza: 2g per hour

Superior Rams are 15s a piece 50-80 per raid. 7.5-12g (2g per hour)
Superior AC's are 15s a piece 20-30 per raid. 3g-4.5g (75s-1g per hour
Superior Ballistas 15s a piece 5-10 per raid 75s/1.5g (20s-40s per hour)
Superior Trebs 33s a piece 5-10 per raid 1.5g/3g (25s/75s per hour)

5g+2g+25s+20s+75s 8.25g (33g per 4 hour raid, 66g a night for both OCX/NA) 330g a week
5g+2g+2g+2g+75s+20s+25s 12.20s (48.8g per 4 hour raid, 97.6g for both OCX/NA) 488g a week

All of this is being provided by random donations from genrous people, or our commanders themselves. While we don't mind doing this, we do need some help. If everyone can chip in just a little bit, it will make the costs less of a burden on individual people

In an effort to better support the guild and our commanders, we will be doing siege sessions before guild missions on Saturday.A few guilds do this and it ends up being a fun way to support the guild. Basically all guild members meet at JQBL Garri mystic forge. Guild officers provide the member with 1 stack of mith, 1 stack of hard wood, and the paper siege necessary.

The member is only responsible for spending 25-50 (if done weekly, 100 if done monthly) skill points to buy siege masters guides at the MF vendor. Considering I make at least 40 skill points a week from WvW bags, this should be a non issue.

This allows us to keep enough siege in guild bank to have a healthy buffer on and off seasons. If players would prefer to buy sup siege as opposed to make it, that option is acceptable as well.

In addition to the siege donations, any mats used in making our group food drops are much appreciated. On average our commanders are dropping 20-30g worth of food for a 4 hour raid, if you are interested in helping craft foods, we have members willing to help teach and run mat farms for you to gather necessary mats.

Note: Please direct all donations to the guild bank.

Hayter / Sep 17, 2014

Its all over! Petstain and i are now both 10lbs heavier.

after some discussion we decided to cook every single recipe that was submitted.

i will admit i did not bake some of the desserts as Mrs Hayter is much better at baking then i, but i watched and tasted (ok so i watched her mostly) but i swear i glanced at the food time to time.

now on to the important part! the Winners!

recipes were judged in the following categories
1. taste!
2. looks
3. how well was the recipe to read/follow?
4. did you follow the rules? (we were kind of easy on this, but we had to at least be able to tell that you made it)

Also! Pet and myself decided since there were so many good recipes for desserts to also include a Dessert winner/2nd place!

ok enough stalling!

Main Course:
this was close, both pet and i centered on 2 recipes, both flavors blew our minds and looked AWESOME!
WINNER: Samulnori's braised korean short rib stew. This made my house smell like heaven, the taste was so good the GF requested it a 2nd time the following week.

2nd place. Vic's Brown Bag Turkey!
the first comment i had on this turkey was it looked like Martha Stewart crawled into my oven and made this turkey, it was the most moist turkey i have ever had, and a brown bag?! who knew that was the trick.

Desserts! AKA there goes the work out!
Winner: Hill's Cake! Super good flavor (looked great and had an awesome flavor with the chocolate and mint)

2nd: Louie Stars Brigadeiro! this recipe is VERY simple, and easy to follow, and the big part here is its ATON of fun to make, both myself and the GF had a ball (pun alert) making this recipe. and the taste of course was great (you cant go wrong with butter and chocolate)

Prizes will be sent out tonight for the first place winners. 2nd place winners please mail me in-game which 200 gem hat/item you would like from the gem store!!

Thanks too all who entered! i'm going to have to eat nothing but salad for the next month.
