Hi Faeblight! I'm Sinn and I'm the guild leader of Play Nice. We've been on Estrael (another PVE-RP server) and sadly find that its time to say goodbye to our current server. Estrael has been on its last legs for a good while now, and as I look around in Meridian and only see three other characters, I know that we're making the right decision, tough as it may be.
We've chosen Faeblight as our new home, as we definitely want to stick with the PVE-RP ruleset. While we aren't a roleplaying guild, we do appreciate the higher concentration of mature players that the PVE-RP servers tend to attract, and we are respectful of any RP community.
We do primarily raid, and have been since April. And this is going to be the sore spot, I think:
We have killed Akylios.
Looking over your progression thread I know that the server first isn't claimed. I also know about Fae's history with Hammerknell firsts, and all of that...drama.
I can't emphasize enough that this is not why we're transferring. Personally I think the whole "someone who's already killed it getting server first on a different server" thing is a major failing in that entire system. I'm not going to pretend that I don't look forward to friendly competition for firsts when new content is released, but that's a completely different situation. As far as I'm concerned, the server first for Akylios will be whichever guild already on Faeblight gets him first, not Play Nice, regardless of what ZAM says.
I hope that Faeblight's community will not let this small thing influence your opinion of us. We're not coming to Faeblight to take the first, and then disappear off to another shard. We're looking for a new home because our current one is all but abandoned.
We're coming to Faeblight because we think it will be a good new home to us, and fully intend to stay. I look forward to getting to know all of you, and I honestly do hope that our assimilation into your community goes as seamlessly as possible.
In all likelyhood the transfer will be happening after we finish our raid week on the 3rd.
