Gaia started life at the end of April 2008. It was originally conceived simply as a safe haven for the Horde characters of players in the Alliance Guild Tranquillity. Several of the longer-established members joined the Guild through this route, including the current Guildmaster.
In June 2008 it was decided to expand the Guild and make it a viable stand-alone entity by recruiting new Horde characters who would have no connection with Tranquillity. Most of the Guild’s active members have joined in this way.
Gaia is primarily a PvE levelling Guild, with some very light RP thrown in occasionally, mainly at Guild Meetings. It is intended for all levels of player.
