As part of the video production over the last couple weeks, I have been logging into World of Warcraft and poking around.
I started with our original guild, the Twilight Cadre on Eldre’Thalas, which I consider to be our home.
At one point though, I decided to check in on our horde guild.
That was our attempt to find new experiences by doing as much different as possible. And it was reasonably successful I suppose. But there was another hiatus, time spent in Middle-earth, and then Cataclysm. So our last venture out with the guild on Lightninghoof was back in June 2010, when we were doing Burning Crusade instances. (This is why I blog all this, because I would never remember it.)
The guild has been quiet since then.
But when I went back to check on it this past weekend, I found that my characters were no longer in the guild. None of us were in the guild.
It appears that somebody named Deviuus… and I am not even sure who that is… I think it was an invite based on a friend of a friend sort of thing… petitioned to be made guild master since we had all be absent for so long, then kicked us all out of the guild.
Not that this is a big hairy deal. I don’t think we were headed back to WoW until the dawn of the Age of Pandas, and even then I doubt that the horde guild on the RP-PvP server would be our destination. The guild bank was probably full of stuff of dubious value, and we hadn’t advanced the guild or even gotten any guild achievements, since we didn’t play on Lightninghoof when Cataclysm launched.
When it came down to it, I couldn’t even remember the name our guild there until I asked Potshot. Somehow I hadn’t even mentioned it in a post. I just knew one was missing.
It is just one of those little lessons in life. If you are not sure you know somebody well enough to trust them, then you probably can’t.
