Ziri has been an avid gamer all his life from across various genres and media types. As a fan of Blizzard Games since Warcraft Orcs and Humans came out in the early 90s he has played and enjoyed Blizzard Games since. Eventually leading him to World of Warcraft in December of 2005. Playing throughout each expansion and finding time to play other games and expand into board games and pen and paper RPGs. Gaming is his major hobby that he shares with his wife, Faiery, and he is always looking to have fun and enjoy gaming with friends. It was this that drove him to start the Rum Runners in October of 2016 with a like minded group of individuals and create a fun community to enjoy not only World of Warcraft but gaming as a hobby together as an extended gaming family.
World of Warcraft Leadership Team
From the moment he picked his first Charmander in Pokemon Red, Zahel has been an avid fan of any game a kid could get engrossed in. As a casual wrath raider, he first picked up his blades as a frost death knight whilst storming Icecrown Citadel, living out a childhood dream of defeating The Lich King. Since joining the Rum Runners in October 2016, he has doused his allies to better health as a shaman. More recently, he has picked up the mantle of the master assassin. That is, when he's not playing one of his innumerable alts, of course.
Me Bloodzugg. Me long line of champeons called Warrior. So grate are Warrior dat we live in heaven. Gods and Titans among our champeons. Others want to be Warrior, so dey raid our hall. Dats ok. Some are close Warrior like roags. Lil Warrior, but with smaller swords. Some not like Warrior and need majik. Dats ok. They make us biskits. Some say reeding, riting, and mats important. I say Warrior need nun of deez tings. We mame, bloodgeon, and kill. Den we color with their parts. Color important. Color make de graz gro and calm Warrior.
For the record, Ziri is making me do this under threat that he will have Tabal write my bio if I dont. I'm too busy farming old content for pets and mounts to write stuff. Or sleeping. I've been playing video games for over two decades, and I will absolutely abandon you people for a month at a time whenever a new Zelda game comes out. My primary job as commodore is to sass Ziri whenever possible. Fin.
Monk and Guild Policy Captain
Since old enough to hold a controller and work a keyboard and mouse, Smash has been playing video games. Believing that World of Warcraft is only as fun as the people you play it with, he joined the Rum Runners in February 2017 alongside his wife Lisa. Since then, Smash has been committed to contributing to the guild and seeing it flourish. Now as a Commodore, he works to ensure policies are in place to help the Rum Runners continue to grow as an all-inclusive community for gamers of all backgrounds. He also loves to make people laugh and draw ridiculous pictures. You might even find yourself immortalized in a drawing before too long...
Lisa started playing World of Warcraft in 2010 in a guild very similar to the Rum Runners, where her very first character was an elemental shaman. It was in that guild she met Smashington (Saberwind in game) through mutual friends and they were married four years later, complete with guild members in attendance. When their former guild dissolved due to members moving on to ‘real life’ Smash and Lisa joined the Rum Runners and she took on the role of recruitment officer, making it her goal to find like-minded new members for the guild. When she isn’t playing WoW, Lisa enjoys the occasional match of Overwatch and obsessing over all things Disney.
The Cow King
Urudu the King of the North has been playing WoW off and on since the Burning Crusade. Although, his first big jump into raiding came with the MMO Rift, he made his way back over to WoW right before Legion launched. He's the priest that will never give you up, never let you down, never run around and desert you. He will never make you cry, never say goodbye, never tell a lie and hurt you. His hobbies are hanging out with cows, Using leap of faith to "save" other people, and pulling every turtle within range.
Death Knight Captain
I have been playing WoW off and on since Burning Crusade, always looking for a good group of people to play the game with. In the summer of 2017, I found that group in the Rum Runners. As a death knight, I could focus on using my enemy's bones and blood against them, or summon an army of zombies to attack all that they hold dear, but I instead focus all my power into making the bad guys a little colder than they were previously. My interests outside of WoW consist of beer, doom metal, and anything Tolkien.
Destiny 2 Leadership Team
Call me Fox. RPGs and FPSs are my life beyond the House of My Family. My light grows each day we fight back the darkness and it's treacherous grasp. I hope it serves as a beacon to those lost adrift or as confirmation that our eternal struggle against the darkness is for a grander scheme. We shall fight on in the face of adversity and desperation knowing our combined light is all that we need to snuff out the shadows around us. For we are Guardians, sworn protectors of the Light and the Last City. May the Traveler watch over you, Guardians.

Warlock and Events Captain
Hello there! My name is Faiery and as you’ve probably already read, Ziri is my husband! He originally got me hooked on World of Warcraft when we lived in separate states and it allowed us to spend time together. Many years later, World of Warcraft has become not only something for us to do together but a great way for us to make new great friends and family that range great distances! I am so proud how far this guild has come and am excited to see where the future takes us! Oh! And before I forget, MoAr CoOkiEs?
