For years, members of the Mormon Battalion Community have been trying to get a history put together about the original Mormon Battalion Guild in Guild Wars. To my knowledge, that has never occured. So in hopes of spurring that history, I'll be presenting a brief history based on my own facts, whether they're accurate or not. Hopefully this spurs a desire by someone with a better memory than mine (and who doesn't have that?!) to write up that history for all to see.
A long time ago (May 2005), two lonely Canadians, sick of another long cold winter had finally gotten their hands on the greatest game of all-time, Guild Wars. These two Canadians were Crom the Red and Drake Striker. Tired of wandering the land of Tyria alone with nothing more than a tuque, they decided to start a guild and named it Mormon Battalion. Wandering from city to city (or outpost to outpost), they announced their presence with the ever familiar, "Do you know the Brother of Jared?". The guild quickly grew to maximum capacity. It had sister guilds as well as several other guilds joining the Alliance.
Today, many of the original veteran members are still around. Some have branched out into playing other games. Some have found their way back to Guild Wars. While others are performing a balancing act between games.
At this time, members of the community eagerly await the arrival of Guild Wars 2--the game that will bring many back together for many long hours of gaming fun.
