Sundered but Unbroken: Celebrating 10 Years of Gaming History

Postby Voronwe Eldalom » Sat Feb 11, 2012 5:39 pm

A lone ranger rests on a warm stone in the middle of a sunlit clearing, now relieved of a weariness long-carried. Another figure soon approaches, drawn by the same wordless call to these ancient, untouched woods. Two more find and enter the clearing before the day is out, while a third watches from the shadows, and yet another nears the end of his long search. Among those gathered, an understanding is reached. They share not only a common destination, but a common purpose and perspective. From then on, they would share a common history. Thus, in a time of need and in a place long-forgotten, a Brotherhood was formed.
From the pages of the Aldacron, Vernal Age - year 1


On February 12th, 2002, the way to Aldalonde was opened, and the newly-joined kindred of The Sundered Guard stepped forth into the chaos of the online wilds wearing the Black & Green for the first time. From humble beginnings of terrorizing the pre-release Shadowbane forums with our hive-minded uniformity, The Sundered Guard has spread its branches to touch nearly every world in the gaming multiverse, all the while keeping its roots firmly planted in the foundation of community and friendship that it sprouted from.

With tomorrow, February 12th, 2012, marking 10 years since the day it all began, a celebration is hereby called to honor the history of the Guard, its people, and the worlds that have helped to shape us, and have been shaped by us in return.

Beginning tomorrow, the Sundered but Unbroken festival will run until February 22nd. Each day following tomorrow's kick-off will feature a celebration of one year of our history - one day for each of our 10 years. We invite anyone who has their own history in the game worlds we've touched to celebrate those memories alongside us, by sharing your own stories and reliving the days you, too, might have walked the lands of Aerynth or Azeroth, Telon or Telara, or any one of many others. All are welcome, also, to participate in a contest with prizes that will challenge your knowledge of these worlds, and perhaps a little of your knowledge of this crazy place, too.

So, Guardsmen, friends and wanderers alike, please join us tomorrow and every day of the festival, and help us celebrate this amazing decade of gaming history and community!

Happy 10th Birthday to The Sundered Guard! Pass me a mug, Gearn. It's party time.

Also... Happy Birthday, Haliit! :D This means you're obligated to party twice as hard, amirite?

Twice the party will definitely be had. Right now the plan is to get drunk and run through the Sedona wilderness in nothing but bubbles.

Happy birthday to us, happy birthday to us, happy birthday dear us, happy birthday to us.

This just reminds me how young I was when we started TSG. I'm terrified any time I look back that far :-P
