Our mission is to provide a safe and educational environment for the fostering of newbies to productive Gaians. We welcome Gaians from all walks of life and levels of experience. Since January 4th, 2005, we have answered thousands of questions, donated billions of gold, and befriended countless Gaians.
The NSTG is a place where newbies on Gaia can find the assistance, friendship, and donations they need when starting their Gaia journey. We are a community of friends, and we are dedicated to serving all of our members with the highest levels of professionalism, kindness, and respect.
We welcome you to join our family today!
We have a zero-tolerance policy against those who violate the Terms of Service within the guild, which keeps you safe at all times. Please familiarize yourself with our Official Rules and check out our Welcome Post, which directs you to some important places in the guild.
Do you seek assistance? Check out our extensive Resources Subforum, which hosts dozens of relevant, helpful guides, including our famous Getting Started Guide. If you’d like to ask a quick question about Gaia, please check out our Questions and Assistance Subforum.
Do you seek donations? Check out our Charities, Contests, and Games Subforum, where generous NSTGers give back to the community, or our Item Quests Subforum, where you can solicit donations for your dream avatar. Our newest members are invited to check out Sweet Treats for Newbies, where posting in the guild guarantees a donation from the NSTG Treasurer. Also, our Minishops Subforum features some fantastic artists who sell their work at a discounted price.
Do you seek community? You've come to the right place. Our Chatterbox Subforum is active and offers a variety of games and discussions, including our infamous Birthday Thread. We encourage everyone to take part in the Active Members Raffle, which rewards those who post actively every month, and we have recently opened an awesome Roleplay Subforum for the writers among us. Finally, we host numerous Seasonal Events throughout the year, which provide excellent opportunities for making friends and earning some amazing prizes.
