AurnaToday, we lost Chester Bennington from Linkin Park to suicide, brought on by depression, and because of that I just want to reach out and say a few things.
As the frontman of Linkin Park, Chester was a staple of my playlist in my 20's. Like them or hate them, they reached a lot of people and the world is worse off for the loss today. We have all lost people we've looked up to, laughed with and been inspired by over the last few years, people such as Chester, Robin Williams or David Bowie all left me feeling sad when they passed on. These folks; although I didn't know them personally, really touched my life.
Normally we don't mention things like this on the website or Discord in anything other than passing. Maybe the occassional 'RIP', but in general we stick to safe, gamey, topics. Why? I have no idea, but I want to take a moment and just say that at some point we're all affected by things like sadness, depression or even just a feeling of being overwhelmed and this guild wants to be a place where there is also space for that side of life.
We are a community, small and based around a game but over the years I have gotten to know so many of you as people and I treasure that. I would hate for any of you to feel that you're alone and have no one to reach out to when you're having a bad day. While I can't promise I'll have the answers or even understand everything completely I can promise you that I'll listen without judgement and always have time should you need someone to talk to. I also know that its not just me willing to listen.
So, If you're having a bad day, need space to clear your mind or just would like a real conversation so you don't feel so alone: Please reach out. It's about the people behind those pixels.

AurnaHM is recruiting in 1 Ranged DPS for our battle in Tomb of Sargeras!. We'd like if possible a Hunter (BM or MM) or an Ele Shammy, although other classes (Mage/Warlock) are fine too - all depends on the fit of the personality - we'd rather have the right person than the right class!
If you meet anyone on your travels you think would be an awesome fit please ask them to either make an application or to poke Chris, Bel or Aurn!
