Farewell Darklight

It is with much sadness that today I have left my guild of many years, DarkLight Resolution. But due to recent actions by the leader and his sidekick, I can no longer sit idly by as my good friends are slandered and spoken ill of.

It started innocently enough - a simple sidelining from the raid that could have been seen as time to improve and demonstrate a willingness to learn. Instead, it was turned into a personal attack - which it was never meant to be - and instead of being handled privately and with grace, it was blown out of proportion.

So as there were hurt feelings, we met to discuss the issues that were unresolved. We had thought at that point, more than a month ago, that the air was cleared and there was no remaining hostility.

However, earlier this week, the past was dredged up from the shadows and though everyone had moved on, one person apparently did not. And because of this selfish behavior, I can no longer serve under him as an officer of this fine guild.

I truly wish DarkLight the best. 99.8% of the people in the guild are some of the finest people I've had the pleasure of meeting in my travels. It's truly a shame that due to the actions of two, the guild has been torn apart, losing officers, generals, and citizens.

To my friend Eirama, if you happen to read this, I appreciate all your efforts to prevent this chasm from splitting the guild. It saddens me to leave you behind to pick up the pieces as I know that this cannot be easy on you. I wish you the best and I hope the guild can grow stronger from this.
