GUILD MASTERS, PAST AND PRESENT
PRESENT GUILD MASTERS
Alilyanea, Co-Guild Master
Ali has taken the same track as Many new officers. She came to us with a great deal of knowledge. Shortly thereafter became a Mentor. She brought about half a guild with her when she came here. She's been a pain in the GM's side for as long as she's been here. So how do you punish behavior like that?? I don't know how you would, but me, I make her the co-guild leader in December of 2013. When MagnusRN stepped down as Guild Master, the logical move to have Alilyanea take over which she did without hesitation. She continues to be the leader of the guild.
Lencel, Co-Guild Master
Lencel, the first word that comes to mind is giving. So asking him to help lead the Guild in February 2016 was a no brainier. In the beginning a member who always lent a hand, then a lead mentor who offered knowledge. Next an officer always there at a moments notice to help anyway possible, from a master of materials, a DPS machine or to a bandage an injury. A shining example of what it means to be Tamarack Order. Some lead by bellowing, others by size, yet he leads by example..quietly and patiently.
PAST GUILD MASTERS
MagnusRN, Guild Master
MagnusRN has served Tamarack Order in many roles. First as a Raid leader where he excelled by always putting the guild first. When the officer ranks were depleted by officers moving on to other things, MagnusRN stepped up and filled the role of officer very well. When Dawne stepped down as Guild Mistress in May of 2012 MagnusRN became the first Chancellor of the Tamarack Order filling the spot of second in the chain of command. Then after 5 months, Abratane stepped down, passing the mantle of leadership to MagnusRN in October of 2012. After a time MagnusRN found that he could no longer dedicate the time he wanted to leading the guild. He then turned guild leadership over to Alilyanea.
Having served for several years as an officer with the guild, Abratane was asked to co-lead the guild with Dawne during Ynari's leave of absence. As the arrangement of having both Dawne and Abratane lead the guild brought back to the dual Guild Master leadership type leading of Kelkasha and Thoron, the original Guild Masters of the guild, Ynari felt now was the time to return to the dual Guild Master tradition. When Dawne stepped down as guild leader in May of 2012 Abratane remained as Sole Leader of the Tamarack Order. Abratane stepped down in October of 2012 after to short a stint as our Guild Master. He's left us for now, but we hope he's able to return.
Although not a founder of the guild, Dawne has been a member for several years. She was first promoted to mentor, then lead mentor, and then to officer of the guild. During Ynari's leave of absence in late 2009 to June 2010, Dawne and Abratane were charged with running the guild as acting Guild Masters. When Ynari felt she would no longer able to devote the time she wanted to leading the guild, she officially passed the title of Guild Master on to Dawne. Dawne stepped down as guild leader in May of 2012 but retains her officer title.
When our former guild masters finally stepped down for a well deserved rest from more than three years of devotion to the Order, Ynari was asked to take their place. As a founding member of the guild who signed the original charter, Ynari has been here from the beginning, rising through the ranks from a member, to a mentor, then officer status until she was promoted in February of 2008 to Guild Master. Ynari stepped down in June of 2010 and takes her place beside Kelkasha and Thoron as revered past leaders of the guild.
Our founding Guild Mistress, Kelkasha was the driving force behind the founding of the Tamarack Order. Along with her husband Thoron, she led the Order through many adventures. In February of 2008, she stepped down for a well deserved rest, but will always hold a place of honor in our Guild Hall.
Thoron stood alongside Kelkasha, leading the Order in many of our most challenging battles. He created the foundation that the Order is built on, and many of his ideals are still the guiding rules in our guild.
Czaidan- Czaidan is currently our longest standing member. He may not have been an original charter signer. However he was there on day one. CZ has done it all. He is currently and has been for quite some time, our RP Officer. Tough job, in my opinion. His job is to try to make this "More Fun"
Dawne - Dawne was first promoted to mentor, then lead mentor, and then to officer of the guild. When Ynari felt she would no longer able to devote the time she wanted to leading the guild, she officially passed the title of GM on to Dawne. Dawne stepped down as guild leader in May of 2012 but retains her officer tittle.
Lomilmand - Raid Leader and the derailing of trade chat, this is Lomilmand. He is always willing to go stab things at a moments notice.
Trakaf - Trakaf, the tiny mage of terror. He loves to destroy any mob in his path, beware his Frost Bolt!!
Important members of the guild, mentors aid the officers by helping new initiates adjust to the guild and by assisting other members with questions and concerns.
