Basically, Ludicrous began with a few friends who deserted their previous guild for various personal reasons. We are not trying to become a serious guild but merely a place to chat with others and make runs with cool people. We're not your typical guild. We're not here to try hard - we're here to have fun and you don't see that much anymore in any type of game. We're also an unpredictable bunch with a wild sense of humor, so be on your toes!
In this guild you must expect the unexpected! We are up for any challenge whether it's proto running bosses with swag, Vana runs with no shield, JK runs with piercing weapons or trying to bring statues beyond points you're not supposed to. If that's not what you're into, that's okay.
Don't get freaked out thinking you can't handle this level of awesomeness. We do normal every day things like chill, missions and prestige. We also Heat our guild mates up on Vanaduke runs or help you impress the ladies while being your wing-man!
We're also a bunch of creepers (Not really, just Xjam) who enjoy talking to each other over Ventrilo, so if you have that then ask a Guild Master or Officer for the infomation and we'll gladly get you set up. We won't force you to get it. Cussing is not a problem in this guild, just be mindful of what you say, whom you say it around or whom you're speaking to directly. There are coud be young teenagers.
Created by three friends, Ludicrous was formed on the late August of 2012. It was created due to some personal stuff which happened in their previous guild and therefore they left and continued their separate ways. Why "Ludicrous"? It is actually a rushed name which was rashly decided on after two days of coming up with names and disagreements.
Not wanting to have many responsibilities, the guild was created as a place for social conversation, hanging and chilling here and there, and once in a while random, pointless, but fun runs. With these goals established, recruitment was initiated by the second week. An advertisement on the Spiral Knight Forums was made and this Guild Wiki Page was created.
Officers weren't established until a month later to create a stable foundation to the Guild. They are mainly the people in charge of recruiting rather than the Guild Masters. We do not recruit much anymore, we mainly only accept people if they have applied on the forums or send a private message or mail an officer or guild master. Our members come from all over the world and so we have random high activity during random times of the day.
We are not that harsh on the people wanting to join the guild, if you're a fun person, social, or socially awkward we'll most likely accept you. We just want to have a fun time without any drama.
It's only been a few months since establishment and we're doing just fine.
Our first ever Guild event fell on the night of October 31st; Halloween. Hosted by Enigmatictactic and sub-hosted by Xjam, this was a fun night with games and prizes. Over 60 Hallow boxes were opened, 1200 crystal energy and 100,000 crowns were won in total along with one member winning a Shogun Helmet.
Guild Hall Update
Spiral Knights upgraded the empty Guild Hall we had on November 14, 2012. Like many other Guilds we were happy about being able to customize it however displeased with the idea of the upkeep. With this in effect many changes we're soon made and promotions we're thrown around building the Guild with mainly trust. Although our guild is not incredibly rich, we will work hard to make our hang out place look damn good.
On December 3, 2012, our Guild Master Phox stepped down from his title and left Spiral Knights. Dying with his Chapeau to continue on with his studies and work, he deleted his knight and waved his farewell. "I'll remember all the fun, sexiness and nonsense we had through all these months, this is my goodbye. GL and HF in RL my friends! -Phox." We will truly miss our kind and lucky Phox.
During Late February of 2013, Xjam has given the title of Guildmasters to Xi-Mi-Oi and Aerrowmax. She then took her leave and went into inactivity because of personal reasons and studies. Cheers to the New Guildmasters!
Aerrowmax Steps Down
One of Ludicrous' founding members stepped down from the Guild during April 29th, 2013. He went off to start fresh and help his friend with the Guild Legoland. He will forever be a part of Ludicrous and will always be welcomed for a visit!

The Guild Hall
So we have a two story Guild Hall with an Auction House, Stranger Vatel, and the Crafting Machines. Tax is 1500cr every Wednesday, but if you forget every now and again it's nothing big. Hope to see our guild grow!
Members are free to put and take anything they need in the Guild Storage as long as it is used and not sold for personal benefits. There is a Guild Record and it will be monitored for any suspicious activity.
The Treasury is mostly meant to pay the upkeep and a bit for furniture. Xjam has agreed to buy the expansions and Special Rooms for the Guild Hall from her own pocket. Furniture can only be bought by our Guild Hall's Designated Designers or unless given permission by a Guildmaster.
.//: Guild Masters ://. • Jsao is the guy you wanna go to if you're a gamer, he plays TF2, LoL and other mainstream games. • Xjam is the meanest out of the 2.
