NOMAD is the newest Provisional Branch of the New OutRiders. Duke Talolan is gathering NOR members who aren't active in our regular branches, or want to play other co-operative and competitive games. To that end NOMAD is not a standard branch of the guild and does not follow the normal heirarchy. NOMAD games are places where the New OutRiders "jacket" guild name is used by our members. These branches have no recruiting or structured hierachy. examples: Closed inactive branches where a few members remain, New games that have not yet developed enough interest to become full NOR Realms.
If you are interested in playing with your fellow NOR members in a game that isn't a traditional MMO, or you want to play all of the MMOs but can't commit to a specific branch, NOMAD is for you.

New Recruit Information
As a new Recruit, you should try to group with other members and experience our guild as much has possible to confirm we are the guild for you. We suggest:
- Read the JOIN page of our website to be sure you know what we are all about.
- Register for a Forum login and say "Hello". The registration code comes in your email shortly after you fill out a guild application.
- While not a traditional RP guild we do have a customary greeting of "Hail*NOR/" when logging in. Your fellow members will typically respond "Hail [yourName]" or some variation thereof.

Turk is gaining interest in a NOR Fantasy Football League, several members have already signed up, and we're looking for some more. If you have even a slight interest in football or just spreadsheets you'll want to sign up and join us.
It doesn't matter if you have never played before or if you are an experienced veteran. All are welcome. I'm more than happy to help with questions for the newbies.
If you are interested just respond to Turk's post, linked here, as soon as possible.

SolForge: The NOR SolForge tournament is ongoing. Play slowed down during the holidays, and everybody took that time to refresh their strategies. Games will pick up again soon. Civilization V: NOR will be running an online Civ V game every other Sunday starting on January 26th. All are welcome to attend but you must sign up in advance, check the NOMAD forums for details. Game Survey: NOMAD is where NOR members gather to play non-MMO games, to that end Duke Talolan will be sending out a survey to NOR members about what games they play online, or have interest in. Please fill it out when you get it, it will help us plan future events. Duke Talolan

The new NOMAD branch continues to roll along. The SolForge tournament is continuing with Talolan and Zipin currently tied for first place. Talolan is looking for some partners for DOTA 2 (viewtopic.php?f=102&t=1845), Arttoheed is looking for NOR members to add their tag and join him in Battlefield 4 for Xbox 360 (viewtopic.php?f=102&t=1934), and Blizzard announced at BlizzCon that the upcoming Diablo 3 expansion, "Reaper of Souls," is adding guild support to the game, so look for NOR members in your Diablo 3 playthroughs as well.
If you'd like to hold a competitive or cooperative game night, or tournament, get in touch with Talolan on the NOR forums. Talolan

The NOMAD Duchy is open for business. What is NOMAD? NOMAD is a home for all members of the New OutRiders who want to stay active, but aren't playing any of the MMO's we have branches in, or for members who want to fly the NOR flag in a non-MMO game that will probably never have an official branch (like League of Legends, DOTA 2, MechWarrior Online, etc).
In addition to our existing members, NOMAD gives us the ability to recruit players in non-MMO games or games without branches, who can later join us in an MMO if it suits their desires.
Right now, NOMAD encompasses the old other games forum on the NOR boards. You can still find a list of Xbox, PlayStation, Steam, etc users in that forum and NOMAD is the official sponsor of the New OutRiders Collectible Card Game League.
Do you have an idea for an event we could run or a team we could sponsor? Let us know in the NOMAD forums.
