Seven years ago, while on a hiatus from WoW, I started to feel the itch to return to Azeroth. But I needed something different, something more to be able to enjoy the game beyond its quests and levels.
I had heard about role-play, and the idea of fleshing out a character had always intrigued me. I did some research and decided to create a level one character on Wyrmrest Accord, and see what that server was like.
I was floored. There were people in Silvermoon City! The streets were alive with all sorts of characters walking (yes, walking) around, chatting with others, and all in character. I sat myself on a bench, and within seconds someone came to chat with me.
I needed no further convincing. I transferred Axiann from his old server and never looked back.
I decided Axiann would be a Sunreaver, and wanted that tag above his head, just like the NPCs had. That is the only reason I started the guild, truly, and I thank my lucky stars the guild name was available.
Seven years later, we are still here. Not only do we have a presence and reputation on this server, but we have become a home to some amazing characters and players.
On this, our seven year anniversary, I pledge that the Sunreavers will continue to provide a welcoming, inclusive and safe environment for all those wanting to role-play as a Kirin Tor aligned Blood Elf and explore and protect Azeroth together.
I am thrilled to continue to collaborate with amazing server leaders on the Year 35 (YOTS Epilogue Campaign) and am thrilled at the possibilities this coming Tuesday’s Expansion announcement will bring.
See you all in Azeroth, and may the Eternal Sun continue to shine on you all.
