Welcome to the Order of the White Tower home page!
We are a guild on the Feathermoon server of World of Warcraft. We are a fairly large guild with a wide variety of interests including roleplaying, adventuring, crafting, and pvp, in roughly that order. If you have come here to join the guild, please keep reading as this page has all the information you need.
n the age just past, before the fall of Lordaeron, there stood in that great city a tower of white, polished stone. It was not the tallest tower, nor the fairest, but in it's libraries and gardens scholars and mystics gathered to preserve and share their knowledge with each new generation of talented students from across the Alliance.
The school was run by a council of Masters and a Master Warder who was responsible for the security of the ancient texts and the scholars who studied them. Of the students, some chose to stay with the tower after completeing their studies. These became Mystics of the Order who dedicated their lives to diplomacy, preserving knowledge and defending the realm.
The most famous Master Warder, Reagon Bloodbeard, began the tradition of assigning a guardian, called a Blackward, to each Mystic of the Order to protect and counsel the scholars on their journeys. He opened a training ground where warriors, rogues, paladins and hunters could practice their skills and find purpose in service to the Light and the Tower. Today, this pairing of a Mystic and a Blackward is our most cherished tradition and is the basic social unit of the Order.
When it bagan the White Tower trained mages and priests. But when mankind first encountered the Night Elves, the Masters quickly saw the necessity of embracing the Kaldorei and the wisdom of the woodlands. Unfortunately this allaince was just beginning when Lordaeron was destroyed.
Many of the Masters and members of the Order perished in trying to save the White Tower with its old libraries and monuments to fallen heroes. They were proud to fight and die beside the first druid among the Masters, Eldien Darkbreaker.
The few Masters who remained fled to Stormwind with what books and scrolls they could save. There they have worked in secret to rebuild the Order and one day, to reclaim and rebuild the White Tower itself. After recruiting and testing several young candidates, the Masters chose Zelanah Greenriver to be their Emissary, a public figurehead with the charm and faith to seek out new Mystics and Blackwards.
Always open to new paths of knowledge and understanding, the Masters ordered Zelanah to seek warlocks as well, so that their strange powers might be analyzed and brought to bear against the agents of the Burning Legion.
Today, the Order is thriving, but far from its goal of reclaiming their ancient home.
