Where is it?

Like all servers, it is named after a real world location, close to it's timezone and physical location. In this case, its the Catskill mountains, in the state of NewYork.
(Catskill Mountains - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia@@AMEPARAM@@/wiki/File:Text_document_with_red_question_mark.svg" class="image"><img alt="Text document with red question mark.svg" src="http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/a/a4/Text_document_with_red_question_mark.svg/40px-Text_document_with_red_question_mark.svg.png"@@AMEPARAM@@commons/thumb/a/a4/Text_document_with_red_question_mark.svg/40px-Text_document_with_red_question_mark.svg.png)

The server is located in the Eastern time zone (GMT -5).

How busy is it?
The server is moderately populated, and has enough players that Luna is often busy, but not so many where you can experience lag in the Luna area.

PvE
Catskills has a fairly active PvE community. It's largest group is an alliance which is typically located in Haven. Other guilds are here as well, from big to small, and Haven is a common hangout for the PvE players on the shard.

PvP
The PvP scene on Catskills is currently dominated by a large contingent of faction players, and the largest faction are the True Britannians. Council of Mages and Shadowlords are also active, and PvP action is often focused around the Yew moongate in Felucca, the champion spawn in Despise, and sometimes the new Stygian Abyss spawns. PvP here tends to involve some politics and it is advisable to learn more about the various sides before jumping in.

RP
There are a diverse mix of Roleplay guilds on the server, many of which may participate in RP-PVP based on a shared set of rules. Sometimes they can be found in Haven, but often they keep away from the non-RPing public and continue their various storylines amongst themselves. They are not often outgoing with recruiting, but many guilds are willing to accept new people if their characters fit with the guild's ideas.

Guild Listing:
Reply with your guild name, its abbreviation, and a url, and it will be added.
