I logged in a couple of weeks back, took one look at the new enhancement trees and logged back out... Haven't been back since! Can't be bothered to figure out how that works right now.

I also would not have joined this guild if it had been a 'military organisation' - I'd looked at the Order of the Sword and Rose website before this one, and they struck me as being far too organised and demanding at that time (basically, "if there's a guild story going on, drop everything and join in whether you want to or not"), so I was pleased that the Fellowship sounded more easy-going.

As it turns out, at the time I joined it should still have been run along the old lines, but I guess various upheavals had altered things somewhat and it was in the process of changing - Jaggie had recently been appointed leader then, and I saw little on the site to indicate a military nature.

OSR was run by a lawful good paladin...  FotGN was run by a chaotic pink bard...  Hardly surprising they were so different! 

And yes... upheaval, infighting, hurt feelings, backstabbing, name-calling, drama-queening and more - we saw it all, despite the officers doing their best to keep most of it out of the public eye.  Jaggie and Points did an awesome job of holding everything together and getting the guild through it all in one piece, bringing us out the other side as the relaxed guild we are today.

The whole Coin Lords thing was not made a big deal of years back, as far as I recall, and the main time that I remember it affecting me directly was when it was used as the IC reason for Valianna's promotion to officer.  (That being that she was about to marry the guild's second-in-command and might have access to 'secrets' she shouldn't know - rather than have Points step down, Vali was promoted.  Apparently the Coin Lords had no problem with the pair of them living together for some time beforehand - obviously only married couples talk about work! *grin*)

We used to have more events, which I enjoyed even though I couldn't always take part.  The people who were largely responsible for organising those events are long gone, and in a couple of cases sorely missed, but we have newer faces now who enjoy coming up with things for us to do!  There was a time when the Fellowship was known server-wide for their events, RP and otherwise.  The glory may have faded a little, but we still know how to have fun when we want to.

I saw saluting Jaggies, gets cupcakes thrown at you, while they are not muffins, that is still a lot better than cookies.

Heh.  I love Der.  I love most all of you, but Der got the biggest laugh out of me.

It is interesting to read, and I hate to say but I am very glad for that period of confusion and turmoil following Jaggie's coming to power.  For that is when I some how ended up in the guild the first time.

I have met some of the dearest people I know in the guild, and am getting to hang out with so many of you next month I really can't wait.  Yey us!

Heh.  I didn't see a page two of this.  And this confuses me a bit, I know Vallie and I joined at about the same time, but I think I was before her.  But we also have no clue how many months I was in the guild and just didn't know.... did I see the days of Hope?  I know when I actually filled out an application, it refered to her as leader.  Hmmm....



Also, *Pelts Int with muffins*

Speak up if I'm forgeting someone, but I remember Zoltando, Der and I being there for the 'Hope ness'. I remember meeting Der for the first time chatting with Merlask near Husk in House K.

I remember being so eager to impress my guildleader that I did things at her command that I later regret.

I remember long periods of leadership lacking and a plot to take over the guild that wound up making the best possible decision for the worst reasons. I won't say I engineered it, but when I saw what was happening I encouraged it, because I saw something in Jaggie the conspirators didn't, Character and a fantastic heart for all of her friends. Though at first afraid to lead us, she has grown to match her heart.

Thank you Jaggie for trusting me to back you up and believing the old man enough to try. None of us are perfect, but you are the right person to lead us. I have never regretted that decision. I have never been ashamed for following one of your orders.

As for Vali and Nklos, they both still profess to be 'new' officers but they have both been there for the Guild. I have shared some hard times with them and may yet again. But all of those mentioned and many more that are not, are my friends.

I too am looking forward to seeing some of you next month for the first time. Though knowing you for years, we have not met face to face. Still I would sneak through a hundred dungeons to raise and rescue you against all odds. I would (and have) dive into rivers of lava to retrieve your soulstone.

The point is that the history of our Guild isn't the things we have done or the tragedies we've faced. It's the friendships that we've built, the fun we've shared and the people we have helped, grown fond of and built up in and out of game.

I won't name names but this Guild has literally saved at least three lives. Our friends going through tough times, dark places in real life, willing to hurt themselves because they see no way other out. Only to hear a cheerful voice or see a friendly chat from someone in the Guild and somehow find a reason not to follow their darker thoughts.

Please don't ever take for granted the impact you have on those around you. Do not ever have to wonder if a friend died when they could have been saved with a "Heya" or *tacklehug*. You are all part of a legacy that goes far beyond which event we ran or raid we beat as a group.

I don't know of any other guild in this game or any other that can stake their claim or measure their value in lives saved like ours.  Not Legion, not Stormlords, none of them.

So never be afraid to proudly announce you are Fellowship. Only the foolish dare mock our history. Only the brave have lived it.

Heh...  I've been hanging around here making a nuisance of myself for close to five years now, and an officer for three and a half of those... I don't think I can claim to be 'new' anymore!  Maybe just 'newest', since the only one that came after us stepped down later.

And yes, Nklos, I'm almost certain you were here before me, although I have no idea when you actually joined.  I know Hope was mentioned in the app I filled out too, but she was definitely gone at the time I joined so I never saw her then.  I did meet her just once, a couple of years ago when she came back to the game very briefly, and never saw her again.  It seemed kind of awkward, so that was probably for the best... she might not have liked the way things have changed.

Either way, we have a wonderful leader now in our Cookie Queen and I'm very grateful both for her and all the other friends I've made in my time here.  You guys are the bestest!
