And that's only the ones I expect to create character pages for. Yes, I have too many characters. I had over 50 on my account when Blizzard instituted the 50 limit per account, and I found out about it the hard way. I've since trimmed down a bit, but I get too many ideas I want to try out.
History with World of Warcraft
I started playing on Burning Blade sometime in 2005. I quickly expanded to playing with a colleague and friend on Argent Dawn. I was strictly Horde-side back then. I started following some WoW-related communities on LiveJournal, and an RP idea was born there that caught my interest. That led to my first Alliance character, on Scarlet Crusade. That was Adriellyn, part of an all-female pirate coterie known as the Booty Babes. No, it was not ERP - the name was a play on Booty Bay, which was their home port. We got a lot of grief over it from people jumping to the "ERP" conclusion instead of getting the joke. After a while, the guild sort of fizzled. (I wound up becoming the guild leader by default, but it was dead before I inherited it.) During the proceeding, though, I'd been joined by other colleagues and friends on that server, but its queue times were getting to be a problem for us. Then Sisters of Elune opened up for free transfers, so we all transferred over.
I've been through various characters and guilds, and spent a while with the (then) RP guild Shadow of the Moon. That guild tried to change to incorporate raiding, and was successful for a while, but some internal stresses showed that the model we'd been using wasn't going to work long-term. Several of us split off to form a new guild, Renewal. For a while, it looked as though the previous guild wasn't going to survive the transition, but fortunately Shadow of the Moon will be continuing, with some of its founders returning. This is, I think, a good thing for that guild, and I'm happy that they will be continuing. They have a good name on the server, and this change in leadership there can only help strengthen that.
