Hello Vanguard,

I was just repairing and restoring an old laptop and found some WoW links, including a link to the very fine Vanguard of Valor.
It's been an age since I last played WoW, after leaving Vanguard of Valor, the only way is down, right? So I stopped playing soon after leaving this most wonderful guild.

Good luck to you all, and Sarah, I never did get my wall of text email! (sadface). But no worries. I hope everyone who remembers me is well and that you are all fighting the good fight in Azeroth.

Hai Stormy!

We've been doing very well. We just promoted the lovely Hasty and Thunderkeg to council members, and a while ago, we did the same with Khallos. Triell is officer now and she is the sweetest officer ever.

People have been going quite crazy for Diablo the past weeks, but that is settling down so they are slowly returning to Azeroth. Raiding and event wise we are having tons of fun. So all is well in the world of the Vanguard!

It's nice of you to drop by and tell us how you are doing

Hai! I've been a right slacker and spent most of the Diablo-craze month in the US, so I'm slowly returning to wowerizing. As Sara already said, we have a few ossum additions in the officer crew, but other than that I can't think of anything super special new. Some people have gone, some new people have joined, we've poked Deathwing and partied hard to balance out the work. And of course everybody still runs laps.

Hope all is well with you on the Real Life Server as well!

Happy to hear that you are all still kicking butts in Azeroth, and that the guild remains at the forefront of fighting the big bosses. I would have expected no less from such a wonderful group of people.

Sincerest congratulations to the new officers, and surely a breakthrough in the History of the Vanguard, to have not one, but two dead, yet crucial, guild members promoted to the leadership ranks. Surely, it gives hope to the deceased everywhere, that even in death, there is hope. I am happy to hear that Triell was also promoted, but in my experience, there were already a couple of sweet officers in the ranks of the Vanguard, so I am assuming she's simply following in the footsteps of those who went before.

Everything in the real world server is as chaotic as it was previously. I still work amazingly long hours at erratic times of the day. We now have a dozen - yes, really 12, that's TWELVE dogs, as my daughter has inherited her mother's love of those four legged freaks, so that's probably where my subscription money goes these days, to feed the dogs.

Diablo? Hmm.

I was invited to the Beta programme a while back. I took part. I played it a while, then I put it away. I was tempted by the offer of a free Diablo III if I took out a year's subscription to WoW, but that's a long commitment, and I really couldn't devote the time necessary to the game, so, sadly it wasn't to be. I have heard mixed reviews of Diablo III, but mostly I've heard positive things. I do believe that there's a lot of groundbreaking things in it - the real world auction house, that we might see in the new MMO, when it comes out. I'm sure it will be exciting.

I did enjoy Skyrim, but the prospect of marrying an Orc (yes, really!) disagreed with my alliance side somewhat, even if it is in an alternate universe, one cannot forsake an allegiance so easily!

I did find a lot of old screenshots on the old WoW laptop. I did the decent thing and saved them away to an external hard disk. As there are no reliable cameras in Azeroth (gnomes and goblins just haven't got that photography skill down to a fine art yet), these are the only memories I have left of some happy times. I do believe I have a series of shots from the night we earned the Nightfall titles and Peam won the Black Drake (if my memory serves me well).

Anyway, that's enough from me. I'm pleased to read your replies. I hope you all enjoy the summer.

Wishing you all well.

Diablo the game in itself is quite cool!

But the constant errors, AH down, etc is getting quite tiring after 3 weeks, they should really have sorted it out by now. You know me, I am super patient, but even my patience is starting to wear thin. WUT? I AM SUPER PATIENT I SAY!

I'm happy you're doing so well. Long hours are sucky, but it also means you're in demand, silver linings and all

Well our old officers are great, but Triell is in a class of it's own when it comes to sweetness.

And Diablo 3 got annoying relatively quickly. Especially the fact that I play alone, without any online interaction needed and get lag and DCs. Might as well go back to WoW.

I shall meet them in spirit and crush them from afar, devouring them by the hundreds and the thousands. Soon, all that was promised me shall be mine, and I shall stretch out my hand and wipe this world clean!"


"It was said that after the battle, Tortolla was found underneath a mountain of demon corpses. He shook the bodies free and his head emerged from the gore. Then quietly, slowly... he asked if we had won."

Yaku, what a wonderful and amazing compliment you paid me, I just hope I can live up to it.
