I've been playing GW since Christmas of 2006, and have all chapters, including the expansion. My first and most beloved character, Drogan was chosen to be a ranger based on the description of the class in the Nightfall book. I liked the idea of being a steward of nature, so to speak. Ranger still is my favorite class to play, although I'm branching out to new classes.
I became a member of The Following Of Xanthar shortly after I started playing, and really feel like FoX is home to me. It's a wonderful group of people that I love hanging out with. We recently became a member guild of the BaR alliance, and hopefully it will be a long and productive relationship.
