The colors and images in the Call of Fate Coat of Arms and banner were chosen for their symbolism based primarily on the standard symbol meanings from western European heraldic devices.
Blue - Truth and Loyalty
Gold - Generosity
Hunting Horn - The hunting horn represents one who is fond of the chase and of high pursuits.
Ivy - Ivy leaves represent strong and lasting friendship, which is a core tenet of our Guild. The Ivy leaves in our banner are of hedera helix, or English ivy. They make up the background texture of the banner image, and are also found in the frills bracketing the Call of Fate arms.
Oak Leaves and Acorn Clusters - Oak leaves and acorn clusters represent antiquity and strength. Founded in 1999, the Call of Fate is among the oldest gaming communities still thriving. Here we see a stylistic presentation of the oak leaves as found in the heraldic treatments of Western Europe.
Built upon a foundation of respect, the Call of Fate exemplifies the spirit of friendship and mutual support in a variety of venues, both in the games we play and within our community at www.calloffate.com. We strive to encourage one another; to spur each other on to the heights of success in our individual endeavors while acknowledging a variety of play styles, ability levels and motivations - this is our singular identifying characteristic.
Though we are tolerant and helpful, we frown upon entitlement; for only through hard work and concerted effort will we improve as individuals and thereby as a guild. We are home to the whole gamut of personalities, and though we recognize that like-minded individuals will gravitate to each other, we are at our heart an inclusionary group.
Our doors are open to the dreamer, the wanderer, the mystic, the jester, the leader, the follower, the powerful and mild alike; cross us and learn that we are all one - we are family, we are friends, we are the Call of Fate.
