An easy way to get to know new guild members- short icebreaker games on ventrilo.
It is best to have older members participate as well as the newer members. These are the ones we did:
1) Guess Who. You mail five things about yourself to the leader. Four things that are true and one thing that is untrue. The leader reads them on vent, and everyone first tries to guess who it is. Then they guess which one is not true.
2) Desert Island. You are stuck on a desert island- name 1 piece of music, one book, and one luxury item you would take. (you cannot take a boat to leave the island)
3) Random questions. Ask the group things like- Where is one place in the world you would want to travel? etc.
