Welcome to the guild of Pockyism. Pockyism is the faith in the Almighty Pocky and its lesser gods and goddesses, which take shape in many sizes and flavors of Pocky. Pocky is renowned for its abilities to banish sadness and depression and to quench hunger and loneliness.
The guilds mission is to enlighten Gaian's to the presence of the Almighty Pocky, and it's mercies.
Anyone can become a Pockyist, which is a member of Pockyism, just by acknowledging the existence of the Almighty Pocky. A member does not have to even eat a single stick of Pocky in order to join. A Pockyist is allowed to have another belief system, as long as it is another peaceful religion, but he or she has to be faithful to both.
This guild is based on the Almighty Pocky, but we are off topic about 98% of the time. The things we discuss can range from anime to Japanese pop-culture to how peppermint Pocky would taste with peanut butter to world politics.

Members Who Have Left Gaia
Mort Mer De Noms:
Mort Mer De Noms played a role in the foundation of Pockyism. He and Koukon talked about how they should bring Pockyism to the people of Gaia, and gave his opinions while Koukon was making the guild in the forums.
Our illustrious founder, currently missing in action. Some say she has attained a state of perfect Pockyism and now exists on a higher plane, sampling new flavors of Pocky that we lesser beings may one day have the grace to sample. Others say she gone sucked into Final Fantasy XI and has yet to emerge.
