Moonglade

Greetings again, druids.

The time is quickly approaching that we will have our first meeting. The date is July 28th at 5pm (server) and will be held in Moonglade.

Not only will this allow us to introduce ourselves to each other and increase the bond between us and nature together, but it will also be the initiation of all our current members into the ranks of the Circle of Nature.

We ask for as much participation and attendance as possible from our members and any druids who wish to join.

Thank you and may Nature guide you.

Moonglade

Moonglade was once home to most of the Night Elves, and remained unmarred by both war and corruption. It was bathed in an eternal soothing twilight.

Ancient benevolent spirits made their home within the Glade, walking freely among the living.

The streams and lakes were pure and clean.


 Romulos, younger son of Cenarius, was the Keeper of the Grove.


The Alliance kept a small hippogryph landing in the Glade.

Horde was permitted to keep their Wind Riders stabled there as well.

The fallen of both factions lay side-by-side in their graves.

The elven city of Nighthaven looked over the shores of Lake Elune'ara.

When Teldrassil was planted and Darnassus founded, the Cenarion Circle made Nighthaven their home and base of operations.

The Stormrage Barrow Dens were the most elaborate of their kind.

 Within their halls the Druids slept, to awaken in the Emerald Dream …

… but all was not as it should have been as the sleepers dreamed. A powerful Nightmare swept the Dream and began to leak into our own world.

The once peaceful and calm Barrow Dens were filled with twisted creatures of the Nightmare.

Despite the Moonglade’s tranquil nature and peaceful calm, a dark and powerful force lay all around.

Moonglade is a haven for druids, and home of the Cenarion Circle. Here, tauren and night elves coexist peacefully, united by their reverence for the spirit of nature. Conflict between the races in Moonglade is not tolerated by its protectors.

Most of the night elves’ population once remained in the Moonglade, surrounded by the old forest trees and the ancients, preferring solitude over communion with other races. The Moonglade ranges east of Felwood, just north of Winterspring Grove along the lower slope of Mount Hyjal. The Moonglade is a magical, sylvan forest draped in perpetual night. The moon stays high within the ebon sky, illuminating the woodland below with a silvery glow. The land never suffers the extremes of weather, thriving in a warm, endless summer eve. Considered holy to the night elves, the Moonglade is home to the night elf race and its powerful druids of the wild. Indeed, the druids had long rested in meditation under the glade, until the return of the Burning Legion awakened them. They remain awake, vowing to protect nature and heal the fractured continent from its war wounds. The sacred forest of the night elves is home to many beasts both dangerous and friendly. The Kaldorei themselves live in cautious harmony with the wildlife, such as the black tigers and the bears that prowl and hunt in the woods. The elves often capture and tame the proud saber cats to use as mounts, but encountering one in the wild is dangerous. Less harmony is enjoyed with the forest’s more dangerous denizens. Satyrs - cursed, deranged night elves - also lurk here and plague the night elves’ solitude frequently. Some furbolgs–driven feral by drinking the foul waters of Felwood–will attack travelers as well. Fierce dire wolves and hippogryphs have also been reported in the area. In addition to these animals are the ancients: sentient trees that act as protectors of the forest. Treants–the smaller tree-men cousins to the ancients–roam the Moonglade. These beings act as fierce protectors of the forest. They do not hesistate to unleash their might upon any who would damage trees or otherwise harm nature. Many ancients live in the forest near Nighthaven. These sentient trees once had the vital task of channeling forces of the land to sustain the night elves’ immortality. They now aid in the elves’ warrior training and help protect their village. The Keepers of the Grove are powerful druids said to be the direct offspring of the demigod Cenarius; they roam the Moonglade as ever-vigilant protectors. The night elves send these patrols out, though they focus primarily on defending Nighthaven and the Barrow Dens. The vast forests and vales of the Moonglade are sparsely populated. The sole settlement of any size is the night elves’ capital, Nighthaven.

Moonglade Released from FXO

News on the Twitter and on TeamLiquid is that FXO has officially released Moonglade. We knew he was on an extended leave from play citing “personal issues” and with FXO’s sudden upswing towards heavy professionalism, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. This should really benefit both parties. FXO has one less person to worry about and Moonglade doesn’t have to worry about being pressured into moving to Korea if he didn’t want to and he’s free to join another team. I hope no one assumes Moonglade lacks the skill to be on the team. Moonglade is a great player, his view and FXO’s just didn’t match up.
