Thanks to a post by friend and guildmaster Andromache, I realize that five years ago, I sat at my iMac (a sunflower-style G4 iMac, back then) and after flicking between male and female night elf models, settled on female and then set about choosing a name. Druid...nature...trees (no Tree of Life back then) Enchanter..magic..sparkly..shiney.
The choice was made, and I sat back to watch the opening sequence for Night Elves.
Leafy, my guild and WoW's EU servers are five years old today.
Where did that half decade go?
