The Hive serves as a recruiting machine for the Grämlins. We want to give new players and players that would fit our style but lack the big nation the opportunity to become part of The Grämlins history. The longest stay in The Hive is 3 months. After that you either ascend to The Grämlins (getting an application process without the need of a vouch plus you are already known to the general membership) or leave The Hive.

In 2011, the Hive was recreated in a similar role for the new Grämlins alliance, under the same charter.


During the stay in The Hive, you will have the opportunity to techdeal with The Grämlins and receive the financial loan to do a back collection. The Hive is protected by the Grämlins and is considered part of the AA.
