The Four Houses of Lumus & Nox
A competition between guild houses!
We’ve generated our own guilds… or magical houses and we’re going to let everyone who becomes a “frequent flyer” on the broomstick or cloak, if you catch our drift, join one of our guild houses.
What happens when you join a house?
Every purchase at Lumus and Nox will be registered under your team’s guild house. We’ll be monitoring which guild has the most purchase dollars (a.k.a. points!) during each seasonal quarter. In addition, we’ll award points toward each house based on membership attendance to special events such as trivia nights, game nights, public events and volunteer/fundraiser events.
Then, at the end of each season, (Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter) we’ll host a special party for the winning guild house where those members have the chance to collaborate with our team to develop the NEXT season’s drink and waffle specials!
Who will win? Nobody knows….yet!
The guild members of Bantermirth are known for their playfulness and their jokes. Why take life so seriously when it’s so short? Members of this guild often associate with play before work or even turn their work into play so that life is full of constant excitement! The Bantermirth are witty, spontaneous and optimistic as well as eager and extremely bold.
This isn’t to say they can’t be serious or lack empathy, they just do so with an open mind and a nonchalant method to reduce stress and live free. In fact, Bantermirth are quite reliable and trustworthy. When they do give their word, they mean it and will be loyal to a fault. Bantermirth are rarely punctual but can always justify or make light of social situations.
The Bantermirth are represented by the jesters cap, a squirrel and three keys which are symbolic for having the ability to open any door and travel without hindrance.
If you are a Bantermirth you are a free spirited person who lives life doing exactly what you love with no regret or shame. You are at home when a crowd is laughing hardest, either when you are at the center of it or the one that gets that perfect one-liner in at just the right time! You need variety as well as constant stimulation and excitement to make your life complete!
The guild members of Pondergrail are known for their calm presence and reasonability in almost any circumstance. From answering a question to forming a question, the Pondergrail weigh all the options. They are sensitive and compassionate to the thoughts of others and understand supportive thinking and decision making. They are gentle and devoted to a cause and will often complete their tasks when started and before beginning another.
The Pondergrail prefer to visualize every angle and gather as much information as possible. They believe that a steady hand and relaxed mindset will achieve the same goals as the fire-by-the-hip method. The Pondergrail believe there are more than one way to accomplish, get to the top or triumph.
The Pondergrail are represented by the owl and the open book which symbolize a constant of learning along with the sage of wisdom and knowledge retention.
If you are a Pondergrail you are the kind of a person that believes that all good things come to those who wait. You prefer delayed gratification over instant gratification. You believe that taking a moment to think twice and assess your surroundings will allow for less mistakes and more. You are often considered kind as well as intelligent and will use compassion and positivity to resolve you problems.
The guild members of Requiveer are known for their heavy hand in leadership and decision making. If a group can’t make up their mind a Requiveer will be the first to stand up and make a call. They are motivated by power and success. The Requiveer are proud, sophisticated and outgoing, sometimes mistaken for aggressive, arrogant or impulsive.
The Requiveer prefer to use hard fact and intimidating logic to drive home a discussion. They believe a choice must be made with conviction and ambition. They accept the consequences of their actions with a stalwart, yet stubborn pride and will make true when they have wronged an undeserving other. The Requiveer are assertive and commanding in most situations preferring not to delay for debate.
The Requiveer are represented by the Pegasus and the mighty gauntlet which act as both nobility and strength.
If you are a Requiveer you’re a leader by nature and you tend to take control of your friends and colleagues. You know when to let others make their choice, but you’d prefer making the call because you are confident and driven to flourish. You are independent, strong-willed and determined by nature and are constantly nurturing for ways to remove negative stimulus from around you, even if you have to do it by force.
The guild members of Veradeem value the opinions and teachings of their peers as much as their own. They will rely on a collective effort to make the best choices in life. Though they can be seen as leaders, they will always default on those they trust for a second opinion. They are creative, expressive and intuitive and love to volunteer to help others.
The Veradeem use their gut instincts to make a judgement call even if it’s a split second decision. They work well under pressure and are considerate of everyone around them. Veradeem are extremely empathetic, however, have the ability to make the hard call if needed and if it is honorable to do so.
The Veradeem are represented by the wolf pack and the Celtic lines of unity which symbolize the pack mentality and prestige of the intuitive spirit.
If you are a Veradeem you are the kind of a person that loves working with others. You value your friendships and relationships and would rather have accomplishments alongside others rather than being solo. You sympathize with those in need, nonetheless, understand when someone needs to learn from their mistakes. You are forgiving and honor bound especially if it involves the people that you love. You are motivated to discover quality relationships built on trust and acceptance and you value intimacy and quality as well as general loyalty, sincerity and thoughtfulness.
