Topic (Sticky) History of Argent Dawn
Edited by Shevron on 15/04/13 18:56 (BST)
In WoW, we all follow the same overall lore. A red thread, that connects everything. However, every server evolves differently by the actions of visible characters and guilds. Each server, while following the red thread, becomes very different. They have famous individuals and guilds, that are not in the official lore, but very much recognized on the server. Events that unfold that have helped shape the community. They have their own "lore history", so to speak. - Tardon
