"Do your worst, my lord," I replied, mustering what little courage remained within my cheese-caked bowels, "but remember that a nipple fondue is as bad a culprit for such larcenous behavior as the bees you so eloquently refused to share your custard with!"
We're back! And by we, I mean just a few of us. For all you knee-high diaper stains out there, The Blight was a splinter guild formed from a little touch of turmoil in Forgehammer back in the Spring of '08. We enjoyed a pretty rabid rate of success/progression throughout TBC (which, by all accounts, were our glory days) and were around for most of Wrath, though admittedly our Lich King days were a great deal less rewarding. Around the time that ICC appeared, our raids were officially put on hiatus and much of the guild vanished into the nether. Or other servers/guilds. The time between then and now has seen a handful of our members activating and deactivating fairly frequently, but for the most part we steered clear of attempting to get back into the raiding game. No longer!
I'm sure the release of SW:ToR and the general decline in WoW players will make this more difficult than it was in the days of yore, but we're going to try to get back into raiding content on the 10-man platform. Specifics, you ask? Logistics, you say!?
It occurs to me whilst writing this, that it could well be the least informative guild recruitment thread ever, but I never let something as petty as logic or reason best my feminine wiles before:
[Guild Rank:] 10 - as I mentioned previously, the guild has been languishing since Wrath of the Lich King. This can be remedied with warm bodies though, which I have heard on good authority will be solved in short order.
[Guild Atmosphere:] As has always been the case, raiding with our kind is not for the faint of heart - it's for the sexy of heart. While most of them no longer play, we were founded by a crew of West Virginian tomfoolery addicts. Your behavior in and out of the guild will not ruffle any one's feathers. Some of us are delightfully random and half-crazed, some of us are laidback, and some of us may be loudmouths. This is a game, and we treat it as such. We're lighthearted and enjoy laughing with/at each other a great deal more than yelling, whining, and e-peenery. If you're a Serious Sam, or a fan of Michael Bay films, this guild is not for you.
[Raid Atmosphere:] This will differ very little from the Guild Atmosphere. Banter is fun, and enjoying yourself is key. Clearing content is secondary to enjoying the content - if you don't enjoy the game you play, it's like work. We don't like work. That's why we play games. We only ask that people be capable of enough focus and comprehension to execute the encounters. And by execute, I mean spam pictures of Tom Waits on the forums.
[Raid Times:] Have not been set, or established. Our current roster boasts 4 players at best, and we're discussing doing a very late night group at the moment (a couple of us, including me, are not available most nights until well after midnight server). Ultimately, the preferences of the member core will decide this. Seeing as how our member core is almost nonexistent at the moment, this matter has not been fleshed out.
[Recruitment Needs:] For the time being, you name it. While we would obviously prefer to line up some tanks and healers first, we're just trying to get the roster brimming with potential again.
Any questions or invite requests should be aimed at myself (Kagehiro!), Risaria, or Soullox. Thank you, and have a nice squirrel pudding pop.
