Welcome to

MARROW of LIFE
The home for those who wish to live deliberately~


Our humble home started out as an art guild, but roleplay is what people mostly do here, we decided to change our focus a bit. XD
That being said, we are also very passionate about all other forms of art, and invite you to share yours with us, enjoy what other members have cooked up, and go nuts talking with people about the things that make your art world go 'round! Who knows? It could be fun. You may even broaden your horizons and learn a bit! ^_^

We accept everyone, and this is a friendly environment, so don't be afraid of joining.

Current Featured Artwork

The Legend of Zelda Sons of Time - A more-than-brilliant fanfic by our very own Kallori! Definitely a must-read.


Current Roleplays

Our main RP, The Legend of Zelda Shards of Elysia has been around since Fall of 2011. However, it is CLOSED until further notice. That shouldn't stop you from trying to join, however - if you would like to make a character that would get SoE up and kicking again, please let us know! This RP has a main plot, and is all OC's (original characters) - no canon characters! There are a few rules, but they're mostly obvious. If you're interested, head to The Woods after joining and give it a look!

The Meteor - An RP set in the future, created by Kallori. You guys should definitely check it out!

The guild's first main RP, The Fiction We Live, was put in the graveyard for several reasons years ago, however, it will soon be brought back and refurbished, changed to make it easier and -hopefully- more fun. All previous members of TFWL will gain a free pass for the characters that they once played and all of their previous items and abilities, if they choose to use them. But don't worry - there's plenty of room for everyone!



Current Games/Contests

We have a thread called "Hylian Spoken Here", where we come up with phrases we believe Hylians would say. It's not really a contest or anything, it's just something we do for fun! We've come up with a lot of stuff that I've even started saying in real life. It's awesome. XD

~Guild Rules~


I - Follow Gaia's TOS.
I shouldn't even have to list that here.
II - Be excellent to each other. That means being fair and respectful to everyone, regardless of their background, personal tastes, views, etc. Got a problem with someone's personal choices or anything like that? Take it outside the guild. Someone GIVING you a problem? Talk to me in PM. I will end it.
III - Follow all roleplay rules. Pretty much every RP will have its own set of rules, most of them obvious, probably. If you choose to join that RP, that means you have to follow those rules. I should not have to explain this, because there are rules to EVERYTHING, whether you want to believe it or not. Try to float off the ground, and the rules of physics will laugh at you and slam your behind back down to earth. That's just how it goes.
IV - Listen to the Crew/Mods - The Crew are Crew for a reason. That reason is that I picked them, thinking they would do a great job at it. If they tell you something, or correct you on something, you should listen to them. If you think a Crew or the Mod of an RP (Person who created and/or runs it) is being unfair to you, again, tell me about it in PM and we will work something out. If you think I'M being unfair to you, then we'll talk it out and come to a decision. If you're still unsatisfied, there's nothing else I can do for you. Just so you know, I do NOT play favorites, I do NOT pick sides in arguments, and I DO NOT MAKE EXCEPTIONS.
V - A clean guild is a happy guild. What I mean by that is, no spamming/bumping in threads outside the Chatterbox/General Discussion subforum, no making posts/threads that don't match the subforum (like talking about art in the RP subforum), and last but not least, NO making duplicate threads! Look to see if the thread you want to make, or one similar to it, already exists. Any duplicate/copycat threads I find will go to the Graveyard.
VI - And finally, have fun! - Yeah, that's not really a rule, is it? I just put it up here so that everyone knows that all in all, everyone's here to have a good time. Came up with a new idea you think would be awesome? We'd LOVE to hear about it! Not having fun with the RP you're currently in or project you're working on? Give yourself a break! It's not fun if you force yourself - believe me, I'v learned that the hard way more than once! And trust me, everyone will understand if you need to take a break for a while! If you're worried about your character in an RP, someone can fill in for you, or we can make some other kind of arrangement. All in all, don't stress yourself out, and don't hold back your imagination. Have a blast!

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms, and, if it proved to be mean, why then to get the whole and genuine meanness of it, and publish its meanness to the world; or if it were sublime, to know it by experience, and be able to give a true account of it in my next excursion."
~ Henry David Thoreau
