Guild mates and friends,
The sexual harassment and discrimination against women by a number of senior male staff at the aforementioned companies is nothing short of bloodcurdling and repugnant and cannot be condoned or tolerated in any capacity.
This news is truly devastating to the whole Warcraft community. Each of us were lucky enough to meet many beloved friends in this community, and for some family too. Silver Circle is no different. Without World of Warcraft, most of us would never have met each other. The question becomes, how do we proceed with such heartbreaking news?
As a women who has long enjoyed Blizzard Entertainment worlds, I feel deeply and inconsolably betrayed, and I understand if you might feel this way too. But I also love the Warcraft universe, its lore, its characters and my own roleplay characters and the other characters I have the privilege of adventuring with. Writing with this community is one of the best and most creatively nurturing experiences I have the fortune of having, and it is not something I am willing to give up.
In light of this news, I understand if anyone feels that they can no longer support Blizzard. If you wish to depart for good, or take a break, please do so. You have my full support.
Silver Circle will be here, and will continue to exist on World of Warcraft, supporting each other, the WoW community, and the many decent and hardworking women and men who built this world we've grown so fond of over the years.
On July 25th, the Officer team agreed upon the implementation of an alternative platform for unsubscribed guild members and affiliates to continue roleplaying with Silver Circle. Those who are interested are encouraged to contact Feyawen#6264 on Discord, to receive an invite to the guild website and Discord, for more information.
May your troubles be diminished,
MENNARE (AUGUST)By tradition, the month of Mennare is the month of kinship, competition, and pride. Kaldorei friends and families often come together during this month to host parties, religious gatherings, and athletic competitions.
This month, the Silver Circle will be focused on a new mission/campaign.
In the aftermath of the Fourth War, even as the situation in Shadowlands continue to escalate, most of the mortal organizations are slowly returning to their pre-war state, dealing with other situations that seemingly weren't urgent or in need of immediate attention.
As the Watchers receive information about a supposed attack targeting a Kaldorei outpost, they upon call the Silver Circle to check on the outpost status.
Silver Circle stands in solidarity with the workers of Activision Blizzard King (ABK), and support their demands for a better ABK. To support #EndAbuseInGaming, Silver Circle will feature a few charities each month in our news post to continue to raise awareness and encourage folks to continue supporting positive change and the victims who have been hurt the by abuse in the industry.
This month, campaign host Athaea Lonelight has selected to raise awareness about the following charities:
Women in Games International
Black girls code
RAINN (The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network)
MSF/Médecins san frontiers Medics without Borders
Those who are interested in joining Silver Circle for roleplay, to get to know us or to potentially join in the near future, we strongly encourage you to make use of our Introduction Prompts.
