Grey Warrior

Woot – I’m the intro on the Twisted Nether Blogcast Ep 82 –  am I allowed to boast about 11 secs or so of air time?

All my gear sets have been saved with my Guild Tabard  – so now I am not in a guild on my main – I have this Ugly Grey Tabard which is especially apparent if I am not in Shadow.

Why does it have to be grey? 

Why not white,   blank, full of promise and hope.  New beginnings,  a fresh slate ?

It is grey,  a colour often seen as a colour of shame in fiction.   Eg  The  Feist’s and Wurt’s Daughter of the Empire trilogy – where Grey Warriors are shamed and masterless Ronins of “fallen houses”  

While there is always that romantic notion of being Ronin, the only people who wear a grey tabard are usually those who just Gquit, and it’s the first thing often done after a Gquit.  The dramatic tearing off  of the Tabard. 

It’s a bit odd that I was still wearing it,  but if I do leave it on,  I could give the impression that I am a fresh Gquit, and haven’t been guildless for however long I end up being guildless for. 

I’ve not app’d anywhere.  Not even read who’s recruiting on forums.  I’m in a better place to see content just from the pugs that run, and especially since one of them last night was asking for 11/12  to participate in a 8/12  ICC run, while there are still 4/12 Pugs being run towards the end of the raiding week,  it looks like the Pug standards  – and success rates will have me seeing the Lich before Cataclysm.

The reality is – when guild chat can degrade to the quality of a General in ICC, and General chat in General – you don’t miss it specifically, but company is always good.  This is a MMO after all.  So I can’t see me being content with being guildless for too much longer again.

    11 seconds of fame… only 14 minutes 49 seconds left. Use them wisely.

      If I add up my air time over my life I think I have already exceeded my 15 min. Used to be a Avid ringereruper of radio comps – maybe it resets on a yearly basis though

    Start a bank guild, pay 10G for signitures, design your own tabard.

      And I shall call it the Grey Warriors – with a stylised grey tabard. ( and I already checked the Wow armory and on US there is only one guild by that name on US.) Probably will be worth the fun hassel running around trying to get people to sign..
