[A] Drakengarde

Recommended Posts

“No, I would not want to live in a world without dragons, as I would not want to live in a world without magic, for that is a world without mystery, and that is a world without faith.”

― R.A. Salvatore, Streams of Silver

He sat in the corner, scribbling down notes on a piece of parchment. From the numerous crumpled attempts around him, it was clear he’d been in the Blue Recluse for a while. Golden armor sat nearby, vigorously polished until it gleamed, but closer inspection showed it was not merely a ceremonial set. Nicks, gashes, and dents wrote the story of what the armor had gone through, and the man who wore it.

With a grin, a large bearish man, a brawny warrior with thick features and a heavy beard joined the other at the table. Despite the grey that speckled his hair, a hint of youth could be seen behind his one good eye. Where the other eye original sat, there are only three claw marks, running from his hairline into his beard; partially hidden behind the ragged eyepatch. David looked up as the other man joined him.

“Still working on that silly recruitment poster,” Jack said light-heartedly, trying to calm the clearly bedraggled warrior.

Running a hand slowly down his tired face, David let out a sigh before looking at the druid; the lack of sleep evident in his eyes.

“You know I am, Ser Kelbret,” he said quietly, “The dragonflight are falling. First it was the Red and the Blue with Arthas’ Scourge in the North, then even the black with the rise of Deathwing. Even now, with everything that has gone on in Pandaria with Garrosh, the Bronze Dragonflight; the Keepers of Time itself, are starting to falter.

Those Orcs who come through the portal are not the Horde we’ve come to know. They are ruthless to the point that even the Horde seem to be driving them back. I don’t know what is happening, but something needs to be done. The dragons have existed since time began. I worry about their future with the recent events.”

The druid drank heavily from a flagon of water brought to the table. Setting it down, his one good eye cast a questioning look upon the Warrior.

“It seems an odd thing,” he said finally, “For a historian and archaeologist to be worried about the future.”

The silence hung in the air between them. Both knew what was being said with the words not spoken, yet neither wanted to be the first to address it. Finally, the warrior, reaching down into his satchel, pulled out a brown, weather-worn, wide-brimmed hat and donned it, breaking the eye contact between the two. The druid was amazed when the warrior lifted his head again, a genuine smile plaster across his bearded face.

“Our history shapes our future,” David said, looking at his golden armor, “So it seems this historian will need to take a more active role in keeping that history alive. We need the dragonflight, more than we realize.”


The Drakengarde is a RP heavy guild focused on the pursuit and preservation of knowledge. Whilst some would stand back and sit in their libraries, doing nothing but pouring over old musty tomes, those of the Drakengarde take a more active role to make sure that history stays alive for the generations to come. With the coming of Warlords, the Drakengarde is finally opening its doors to RPers.

If you’re new to RP or you’re experienced with it and just want to get in on the ground floor and help build something great, all can find a home here. Eventually, when numbers allow, the plan is to get into current generation raiding and PvP. However, at its core, the Drakengarde will still primarily be a RP guild. To join, contact David on Twisting Nether via whisper or letter to set up an in-character interview!
