About UsThe Border House is a blog for gamers. It's a blog for those who are feminist, queer, disabled, people of color, transgender, poor, gay, lesbian, and others who belong to marginalized groups, as well as allies. Our goal is to bring thoughtful analysis to gaming with a feminist viewpoint and up-to-date news on games, virtual worlds, and social media.

Play With The Border House in Guild Wars 2!
[caption id="attachment_9122" align="aligncenter" width="540"] A beautiful vista from Divinity's Reach in Guild Wars 2, with lush green foliage, and steampunk-styled globes hanging from the ceiling.[/caption] We've posted about this before, but now that the early access for preorders has begun and the game will be launching in mere days, here's another reminder! Many of us at The Border House will be joining up with Praxis, a guild that has a similar mindset as us and a great guild charter that upholds a lot of the same ideals as we do. We're set up on the Crystal Desert server, which is the unofficial LGBT server community in Guild Wars 2. Due to high demand, this server is often full along with many others, but there is a full week of free server transfers so you can watch the server list and transfer over at any time. Join us on Crystal Desert in Guild Wars 2! Readers, feel free to leave your account names in the comments if you'd like to friend each other, but do remember that this is a public post.
