To all former and current members of the guild Fist of Aggramar:
For nearly two years I have had the honor and the privilege to serve as your GM. With the help of members of every rank we built quite possibly the most influential leveling guild that Anub'Arak had seen in quite some time. Nearly everyone knows are name and most have been a member at some point or another. We missed a server first by a mere 5 minutes and had groups ready to launch themselves into raiding content.
Unfortunately, as we were reaching our peak, the combination of losing key Officers and RL circumstances sparked a decline we have been unable to shake. In short, the guild has reached what I feel is the end of it's life. I could easily allow it to continue unregulated as a husk of itself, but I would much prefer handing the reigns to a willing and capable Officer with the time to rebuild. I do not doubt the ability of any of them, but their schedules seems to have become as constrained as mine.
Beyond the guild, I have myself longing for a different enviorment more and more. Anub'Arak has been my server from the start, but I feel it is time to move elsewhere. Most of my closest friends have already moved on the greeener pastures and I think it's time for me to do the same.
The above conditions have led me to a single choice on the future of the guild: dissolution. It may be a form of arrogance, but I do not wish to simply cast off the mantle of GM onto whoever would take it. I cannot stand the idea of allowing FoA to continue as a shell of it's former self or to be sold and converted into something it was never meant to be. I know that meny of you will not understand this and may choose to despise me for my actions, but know that I feel this is the best choice for the legacy of this guild.
The bank will be shut down, but the repair fund will remain open. I wish you all the best of luck in finding new guilds or in founding your own. I can only hope that some of FoA's values leave with you and take root elsewhere. In the end, that's all I ever really aimed to accomplish here.
-Your GM, Eranoss
