Go Rin No Sho was formed with the intent of progressing to World of Warcrafts 'End-Game' raids about 6 months into The Burning Crusade.
The guild is named after the book Go Rin No Sho (A Book of Five Rings) written in 1645 by Miyamoto Musashi, said to be the greatest swordsman that ever lived, who was never defeated in any duel from the age of 12 until he died in his sixties! This is his book of strategy. I read this book a long time ago, and it struck me as a good name for a guild. We wanted to move forwards in this game and see the 'end-game' content, and that will take some strategy and intent.
For those of you who want to learn more about Go Rin No Sho the book:
Wikipedia Reference: Wikipedia The Book of Five Rings Go Rin No Sho was fundamentally a PVE Raiding Guild in World of Warcraft, but now we will be organising WvWvW in Guild Wars 2, and any other games we decide to play.
We are an English speaking community and guild currently based on the EU Gandara server for Guild Wars 2 and EU Kilrogg server for World of Warcraft
