The night was calm.
It was not unlike any other evening within the lush purple forests of Ashenvale. A gentle wind blew through the bushes and trees, the faerie sprites' song carrying through the air. Within the Silverwing Grove, elite Sentinels eagerly consumed their meals of kimchi and moonberry juice. Shaureyne Razorleaf sat quietly in her own corner of the bunkhouse, glancing over a document as she sipped on a tea of her own creation. Things were quiet. Serene. More peaceful, some would say, than it had been in years.
The quiet rumbling that began to echo throughout the small forest clearing, however, begged to differ.
The ugly sound of orcish battle cries nearing the base went unmistaken by the Captain, as well as her subordinates. Some cracked their knuckles. Others stomped their feet. Pushing her tea to the side, Shaureyne stood and pressed a righteous fist to her heart.
"Sentinels!" she shouted loudly. "Prepare to fight!"
One by one, the Sentinels swiftly lined up on the edge of the Grove. The bright light of the moon graced their gleaming glaives and waxed bows. Their deep violet uniforms were primed to perfection. Not a single quiver was left unstocked, and each hidden dagger was sharpened to a deadly point. Together they stood, straight and proud, readied for battle against their enemies.
Captain Razorleaf stood tall before her unit, brows furrowed, weapons in hand. "Sisters... Sentinels," she started. She turned around to face the entrance of the sanctuary. She stared, fearless, at the stampede of orcs that would be at their door in mere seconds. "Will we let these ugly beasts take our home tonight?"
"No!" the group yelled.
"I thought not." Shaureyne raised her right hand. Each archer nocked a blessed arrow, aiming towards the angry green skins that raced to close the distance between them. The Captain smiled, a fierce expression across her face as she and the rest of her soldiers shifted into combat position. A single dagger was shoved forward into the air.
"Ana'duna thera! For Ashenvale!"
Who were we?
<Silverwing Sentinels> initially started off as a subdivision of the Warsong Gulch PvP faction by the same name. We were originally known as the Ashenvale Sentinels guild back on Moon Guard, pre-2012.
During her first few years, Silverwing promoted a humble "quality over quantity", lore-abiding, traditional Kaldorei RP setting, attracting roleplay veterans and rookies alike before entering a long period of flickering inactivity in Summer 2012. In August 2014, Silverwing Sentinels was relaunched and proudly contributed quality roleplay to the Night Elf RP community on Wyrmrest Accord US until June 2017, when the guild permanently entered retirement.
What did we do?
Led by Captain Shaureyne Razorleaf, the Silverwing Sentinels roleplayed as an elite Silverwing military unit representing regional Ashenvale, as well as secondary defenders of Kaldorei zones across Kalimdor. Our events and plotlines varied between local defense, offense, social gatherings, training, patrols, and more. We considered ourselves to be a "Medium" RP guild, with a heavy emphasis on story progression.
Our goal was to provide a friendly, fun, and high-quality roleplaying environment with traditional Kaldorei RP for like-minded people. We intended to further spread random roleplay throughout northern Kalimdor, to form healthy relations with other similar guilds, and provide frequent roleplay events. To us, the guild was a family, and our goal was a passion.
On the side, we would tend to dabble in PvP, PvE, and other aspects of the game. However, our main objective was to promote lore-accurate roleplay and, on a deeper level, give a name and face to those generically-named guard NPCs that so willingly hurl themselves at the Horde who step where they shouldn't. Not just to show others what Sentinels are like, but to really show them why they are what they are, and why they do what they do.
