Interesting Guild Facts

Andersen, our first Guild Leader, suggested "Owl's Nest" (after housing he and a few other members lived in in college) as a name for the guild.

The word amaranthine was found by Tigue during the naming discussion focusing on the idea of an everlasting guild, it was switched to "Amaranthian" because Sumul found amaranthine.com was already taken and guild members agreed it sounded more like a guild name.

Silvermoon charter signers were:
Andersen, Brizzle, Demonskin, Qyn, Sumul, Tigue, Trahari, Vasilisa (Droogan), Whismoon & Yui

Arathor charter signers were:
Andersen, Ciarlin, Droogan (Vasilisa), Fazil, Keroth, Shinsplitter, Sumul, Qyn, Whismoon & Yui

There is a horde Amaranthian on Emerald Dream, where everyone has in game invite/promote powers and a darker version of the Amaranthian tabard.

The first Amaranthian general forum discussion was titled "Yay" and started by Qyn on September 30th, 2005.

Fazil was our first initiate, his initiation lasted one month, after waiting approximately a month to be initiated!

Another early initiate, Fap, had an introduction thread that spanned 5 pages!

Some members used to chat in a single AIM chatroom called amarachat.

Guild polls should include the option: "Make Qyn a Sammich"

Amaranthian members broke the old forums in a thread with continuous quoting.

ButtHorKittenFlysie- Invented by Qyn and illustrated by Whismoon, it is the unofficial Amaranthian mascot.

In the early days we once had a thread cheering 11 people logged on to the forums at once. With screen shots...ooo...

In honor of everyone's successful migration from Silvermoon to Arathor, Guild Leader Droogan (disguised as Greetink and Invitink) hosted a ball in Saltheril's Haven, Eversong Woods.

For more guild history there are threads in each forum section with a link to the corresponding forum section on our old site!
