This week our guild took in it's .
This is quite a benchmark to achieve right before we hit our first year anniversary (Jan. 9th) as a guild. I attribute this to the caliber of our membership and the inclusive, helpful and friendly environment they have created. Well done and thank you.
To be honest, there were times when I wasn't sure we were going to make it to fifty, let alone 200. I've found the role of guild leader--this is my first guild, by the way--to be both a trying and rewarding experience: with each new member, elation; with each member leaving, a small sense of failure and dejection. With each loss, fortunately, came a bit of knowledge and insight on how to make the guild stronger.
While our roster boasts over 200 members, obviously there are people we just never see. For them, the game didn't fulfil their expectations or real life had to take them away from the game; it is a testament to the quality of the people in our guild that some of them still log in every now and then to poke their heads in and say 'hi.' It's for these folks that I'll keep the lights on and hope for their return.
For those of us that are still in the fight and wear our tag, thanks again for the quality of character and environment of friendship and respect you bring to this guild. Gratitude is also deservedly extended to our officers; their hard work, knowledge and insight has kept our guild on course and helped it to flourish.
Creating this guild is the best one silver I've ever spent.....although those rawhide legging I bought were pretty nice.
