It's now five years that Whitestar had been created. Every week, I'll share a Chapter of our Story. I hope our newest members will find amusing and interesting to learn how everything started. Last week, we discovered the roleplay background of Whitestar and how the guild went unactive for a time.


It's amusing how an argument can sometimes bring positive events. The reign of the Lych King came to an end. Most guilds had eliminated the vilain, including Luminous Path, but not with the twin priestess. @Internet and I had raided for weeks and our team were close to victory, but the day of the kill we had been replaced. This left us a sour taste, and we didn't had the heart to raid anymore. We mostly played on our alts, and spoke about the Cataclysmic future. I wanted to play with a Goblin Shaman, while Internet wanted a Worgen. Obviously, we had an argument.
So the night of my 31th birthday, I secretly created a Draenei shaman, and started to level her to show my good will to my boyfriend. I choose to pick up my most favourite name to give her importance: Elloa.

As by this act we settled to play on Alliance for the new expansion release, we asked to our old friends if they would be interested to play in Whitestar again, and to prepare our guild for Cataclysm. Our plan was to have a small tight knit 10 man raiding guild, with optional roleplay on the side for those that wanted. Our idea met a serious enthousiasm, even though most of our friends didn't planed to play World of Warcraft before the expansion released.

During the meantime, I started to seriously roleplay my Draenei together with @Alakina. We decided that we would bring back the Whitestar Magazine on a most serious level. Alakina created a blog for us to incarnate the reporters of Defias Brotherhood and bring all news about what was happening on the server!
We had amazing adventures: the discovery of the Furlborg tribes, the exploration and study of the ruins in Ashara with the GAIRDAS Institut, a royal Wedding in the Arathi kingdom, the Theramore Ambassy Gala, or the War ravaging Swamp of Sorrow. And of course the premices to the great Cataclysm that would change the face of Azeroth for ever! We didn't missed a single occasion to write scandalicious articles!

Alakina and I spent several weeks to play and work together, and we really had great time. This are memories that I cherish. We never had play that much together in the past, and we never did it again later. This is a particuliar period of our life as friends where we had the occasion to be more intimate.

Once the expansion hit we continued to publish the Whitestar Magazine. We recruited several reporters that helped us to provide more content in our pages. We also had regular meeting in a house in Stormwind, that we shared with Ere Argus. It was really fun, but also a lot of work! We had to take part of as much event as possible, and Defias Brotherhood was a very active server at that time.

However, as a guild, Whitestar main focus became our PVE progression...How we succeeded in our ten man raids will be a story for next week!
