Order of the Doughnuts/Colonies
The Order of the Doughnuts is a guild in the Colonies. Members come from many different realms united by a mutual love of doughnuts. Members live in peace with each other, except on the rare occasions when a fight breaks out over the last doughnut.
The Order of the Doughnuts exists to spread doughnuts and the love of doughnuts throughout the Colonies.
The Order of Doughnuts is not a military order. Its main goal is to bring the people of the island closer together by exchanging their cultures over doughnuts. However, if someone threatens us we will fight back with everything we have.
Holder of the Golden Doughnut
A legendary status among the Order of the Doughnuts, the Holder of the Golden Doughnut must accept all challenges to First-Blood duels (so long as doing so does not contradict any standing orders from the holder's realm hierarchy). If the Holder of the Golden Doughnut wins the duel, they retain the title. If they lose, they surrender the Golden Doughnut to the challenger, who then must follow the rules as champion and Holder of the Golden Doughnut. Someone outside the guild can hold the title, however we stive to not lose to an outsider.
History of the Golden Doughnut
First claimed by a Hero turned Priest, named Good Bell, the Golden Doughnut is a prize bestowed on the single warrior with the greatest swordsmanship and skill in combat. Holding the Golden Doughnut ensures a life of constant challenge and threat. Despite this, many warriors from varied lands come to challenge the Holder of the Golden Doughnut for this coveted honor.

Notice for Members
Come, grab a doughnut and pull up a chair. Let us share our love of doughnuts and our experiences. If we can talk over doughnuts perhaps we can put aside our swords and live in peace with one another. If not, you may be handed the Doughnut of Death.
We, The Glazers, will meet every week at the glazed round table and figure out new ways to add pounds to ourselves and our men, and finding ways to instill fear in our enemies by the fear of eating all of their profits from their regions production. We stand with honor, we stand tall, but we are mostly just wide.
Vir el Mari heights held the original guildhouse. This guildhouse, built by the Founder and Grand Glazer of the guild Calvin November, was small and had a back deck that faced south, overlooking The River. Will Bell built the second Order of the Doughnuts guildhouse on 06 July 2007. It was located in Drenga. The third, built in Abaka, was constructed by Ilsa November on 23 July 2007. All three fell in disrepair when these regions were transferred to other, gluten-intolerant hands and were closed soon afterwards.
On 17 March 2017, in response to an overwhelming demand for more tasty goodness, Calvin November re-established the Order of the Doughnuts in the Colonies by opening a guildhouse in Hanmkrag. Six months later, Donagal Prestongreen built another guildhouse in Pirht, but it was torn down after only 4 months by a ravenous mob.
Undeterred, Donagal Prestongreen built another guildhouse in Giblot City on 22 May 2019. In keeping with the spirit of the guild, he enlarged it immediately.

Member preferences for Doughnuts
Be aware that selecting your doughnut preference is one of a noble's inalienable rights within the Order of the Doughnuts guild. Anyone who gives you orders about selecting your doughnut preference should be reported to the Grand Glazer ...or at least be forced to consume a moldy powdered doughnut.
- Calvin November: hot and freshly glazed
- The Original: I especially like "jelly" doughnuts. Jelly, the OT way obviously... I think that's where the word originated anyways. :)
- Nikolai Gogol: maple iced
- Logan Turik: My doughnut preference happens to be beer with ale glaze. I am from Redspan after all.
- Good Bell: I love lemon-jelly filled mounds of happiness! aka DOUGHNUTS
- Asimert Kel-Ruvan: My Doughnut of Choice is the immortal Honey-glazed variety. My family and I have enjoyed this sugar-coated delight for generations! Goes well with nearly any sort of jelly or jam. Good for dipping into coffee or tea, too!
- Ilsa November: "Sweet 16" sugar doughnuts
- Lone Ranger Warlock Lord: hm... I like creme(fruit) filled with chocolate covered ones
- S'noe Whiteblood: Hmm. So many choices it's hard to make a decision but I guess if I had to choose I'd go for Raspberry filled.
- Will Bell: Glazed Curlers
- Thyk Whiteblood: My preferred doughnut would be a simple, plain glazed. It's more in line with my simple upbringing.
- Donagal Prestongreen: Let it be known, my favorite doughnut currently is a Glazed Blueberry doughnut.
- Davier Leroux: I am a man of simple taste, a jam doughnut is the true way to heaven.
- Cemet Adiyanto: Uhh vanilla doughnuts?
- Kolben Norman: I like my doughnuts triple flame broiled stuffed with garlic oregano cheese sauce and topped with white chocolate chip and ginger flakes, glazed with four layers of alternating snake oil and monster bile.
- Darius Rea: Donuts wise, I fancy plain cake donuts. They dunk in any fluid. Any of them.
- Tobias Mersault: an Outer Tilogian Blood Donut
- Sploosh The Undying: Have you knowledge of a fabled, mythic substance known as 'sprinkles'?
