(This is a follow up of sorts to the first Work Raid Encounter post.)

I expressed interest to the GM of taking over as the raid leader for our guild. I feel it's something I am ready for and have been preparing for for the last couple years of playing.

Unfortunately, they declined to take me up on that offer and wish to keep me as merely an officer/class leader/sometimes co-raid leader. I don't know.. something about wanting to eventually rebuild a guild or 2 they disbanded months ago and run them either through a merger or as a raiding alliance all under 1 raid leader. Apparently I'm not qualified to “maybe someday” run such an alliance or merger.

How far ahead are we looking? Seriously? We can't fill raid spots now and benching more members isn't completely off the table that I'm aware of.

Blarg. I need another expansion so I can level up to the next cap and train s'more skills, me thinks. But damn, that gets expensive. And our guild bank doesn't give out loans.

But they do “appreciate” my dedication and willingness to co-raid lead for the time being… as well as all the farming I do and helping my guildies gear up.

We are a family of gamers. Mom (Darcy/Syrana) and Dad (Brian/Sideshow) have been gaming for as long as they can remember back when you only had a joystick to use and saved your games to cassette tapes.

They've been gaming together since they met in 2002. Sometime after 2006, they both started playing World of Warcraft and did that for many years. They started this blog, originally called Sideshow & Syrana which has now transitioned to the new Stay-At-Home Gamers site, while keeping all of the original content.

Starting in 2010, two more gamers came along (now known as Princess Boo and Mr. X) and they are now old enough where they both enjoy playing games and watching others play games. They are both excited to have others to watch them play their favorite games. Come along with us and let's enjoy these games together!
