It all started late 2010 with ad posted in Trade chat. "Looking to start a Guild based on Sentinel Lore PST for more info."
The original founder of <Sentinel>, Kyind, was looking to fashion a guild closely adhering to an actual lore organization within the Warcraft universe. Despite being flamed in chat for the idea that day, one person did respond. Kerielle became the first person to sign the charter, and soon the first official guild leader. A few Recruits later and the guild was on its way.
Six years passed and we have seen three different guild leaders (Kerielle, Ellesta, and myself), over twenty different officers, and over six hundred members pass through this guild.
A great many hands have had a part in fashioning this guild into what it is today. <Sentinel> isn't just the work of a few minds, but scores. Each person who has had an idea, given a suggestion, offered (constructive) criticism, added a rule, recruited a new member, or hosted an event, has helped mould and shape our guild.
And although <Sentinel> has greatly evolved and fine-tuned over time, I like to think we have still preserved the core idea; the central theme and structure that Kyind and Kerielle established back in 2010: a respectable and lore-abiding guild that sets the standard for Night Elf roleplay on Wyrmrest Accord.
Six years is a long time for any guild to survive. Most guilds are lucky to last past their first anniversary. We have survived six. <Sentinel> has seen its share of trials and tribulations; good times and bad; heated arguments and constructive debates. But we still manage to emerge and be better for it.
Thank you to everyone who has stayed loyal over the months and years. To everyone who has helped in small ways and large, to make this guild what it is.
Wow, I got to say for my what? 4 months being in this guild was just a blast! I had so much fun since I joined. I am thankful for meeting you guys not just for the fun RP but for not treating me for a push over like most people do. And I want to keep this short but this might sound weird coming for someone that's only been here for 4 months, but cheers to six years!
I've been in and out of a lot of different guilds in the many, many years I've been playing WoW; but, by far, this one is still (and probably always will be) my absolute favorite. It's an amazing guild and all the people that help make it what it is deserves all the praise and more.
I came into Sentinel with only about two weeks of role-playing under my belt. They were so nice! Still are! 😃 Now, it's a little over a year later and I'm still loving it. We're like family here! It has been an AMAZING experience!
Kudos to all you wonderful people!

I just want to say thank you all for letting me be apart of this great community. I've never met a group of kinder or nicer people. Happy sixth birthday Sentinels!
Now this is the Law of the Jungle -- as old and as true as the sky; And the Wolf that shall keep it may prosper, but the Wolf that shall break it must die. As the creeper that girdles the tree-trunk the Law runneth forward and back -- For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack. --- Rudyard Kipling
I have to say that not only as a person who has owned their own guild once, but as a happy member of this guild, we are really a great group of guild mates and I wouldn't change a thing. We are a big family and I am glad that I made Kame all those years ago and ran into a member of the guild. It started me down the road to finding this place, and now being here for 2 years, I wouldn't have it any other way. I found a place to call home and will be here til the end.
