HALCYON: RESURRECTED?

Danyelle, Jan 17, 11 4:25 PM.
 


I know no one likely visits this site anymore  but it continues to be a source of nostalgia and pride for both me and "Iggy". While we've both long since moved on from Everquest, even losing touch with each other for quite a while, the good times and even better people associated with Halcyon has certainly never been forgotten by either one of us. 

Stars have aligned (rekindled friendships, cross-country moves, stablized family lives, a re-entry into the gaming community, etc.) and "Iggy" and I have decided to resurrect the Halcyon name for a new MMORPG called RIFT: Planes of Telara. It's our tribute to the best guild that ever was ... with no intention to ever replace, only perhaps rekindle even the tiniest of sparks that once made this online family the amazing community that it once was. 

If you stumble across this, know that we extend an open invitation to any former Halcyon members if you're interested in discovering a new, exciting world with us. Our new website is HERE ... complete with tons of information regarding the upcoming release of RIFT. At the very least, please stop by and say "hello!". We'd love to hear how life is treating you! 

You are loved!

A DISCLAIMER

Danyelle, Dec 10, 06 9:50 PM.
Posting for clarification should other guilds follow false recruitment links provided on their website:

Hello. My name is Ignatiuss Loyola, the guildleader of Halcyon on the Rathe. Our raids are overfull atm and we are not recruiting for the most part (very few even from our own server). An individual claiming to be Ranvarien, a guild leader of Reviction on EMarr, contacted me last night to question me regarding a supposed post on their website in which someone with the username Ignatiuss was reported to have attempted to recruit from their guild. If this is the case, I'm sorry for the needless drama; someone has a grudge against my guild and is attempting to create havoc. My apologies for any disruption if there indeed was one! If you (or any other guilds that may have been involved in this individual's attempt to blemish the integrity of Halcyon) have any further questions, please feel free to ;tell rathe.ignatiuss or email me at SOE.EQ.Rathe.Ignatiuss. Thank you for your time!

We also want to apologize for any disruption in PoK as a DanyeLe (Daswulf) spammed false recruitment/channel information in PoK via /ooc. It was very disheartening to know that my character (DanyeLLe) was being impersonated in order to ruin others' EQ experience. For those who joined the channel. we apologize for the chaos! However, we did appreciate the opportunity to interact with those who (as we did) attempted to enjoy the circus and take the evening's turn of events in stride.

See you in game, friends.

Happy 2nd Birthday, Halcyon!

Danyelle, Dec 8, 06 6:35 AM.
Halcyon proudly celebrates our second anniversary today. I wanted to take a few moments to thank each and every member, present and past, who has contributed to the amazing success of this guild.

To update, we've pushed through alot of content since our last front page entry. We're working our way through T2 of Demiplane and have made our first visit to the humble chambers of Sullon Zek.  There's not much to say ... other than we're kicking a lot of tail and having a heck of a good time while doing so. 

And there was a lot of tail kicking for our birthday celebration as well! We started off the evening in The Arena for a team PVP contest despite the fact that PVP with highish end gear is rather laughable. I dont know, maybe PVP with any gear is laughable with the spell restrictions ... but regardless, members reported having a great time. I know Iggy and I did!

Due to the ruleset, there were a few groups standing when the call was made to move our celebration forward. However, group #3 (Brutaltodd, Angelpunch, Charsun, Gwerlum, Swords, and Madily
) was the only team to boast no deaths in their group ... a fact that they were sure to let no one forget it throughout the night! Congrats, guys!

I especially want to thank Halcyon's #1 perpetually rejected app fanboy for making an appearance. Having endured his griefing delightful hijinks all evening, members were even rewarded bonus, birthday DKP for graciously giving him a free TL to bind in The Arena. Afterwards, the perpetual spamming from several different servers to personal tells and our app channel made us feel special, especially the barrage on the clerics. It was refreshing for them to have something else to do besides stare endlessly at HP bars all night. They were indeed thankful for the two seconds it took to put each of the numerous  spammers on ignore during our dual (dueling?) 28 main manned Anguish runs.
Congrats are due to Cezarion's raid for clearing through to OMM first, as well as all members, new members, apps ...and mostly stinkin' bot filler ... who picked up the goodies along the way!

What a birthday! We want to thank each and every one of you who showed up to participate in the big night! A great time was had by all and I look forward to sharing the coming year with each and every one of you! You are appreciated!

As the holiday season is in full swing, we wish you and your loved ones a blessed one. Here's a previous holiday pic (expect a current one soon!) ...

Sisters down: A quickie update!

Danyelle, Sep 22, 06 11:32 AM.

Last night's Whinefest winner: Christine, a lovely maiden hailing from Effen, Shut up.

Christine shouts, 'Master, oh Master! There is dissension among your coven. My own sisters, who I trusted implicitly, have been conspiring against me. There is a mountain of proof and witnesses!

An ominous voice booms, "Very well, Christine. Since it pleases you so much, your fellow Sisters will be bound and banished.'

Althea and Brenda's screams are cut short as they are exiled from the Demi-Plane of Blood.

Thanks goodness.

Bigger winner? Halcyon! We've silenced the wenches and look forward to the myriad of challenges that continue to lie ahead! One couldnt ask for better company!

Another winner? The Serpent's Spine release. Despite the usual downtimes associated with an expansion launch, the transition is a relatively smooth one. Our members are out in the trenches and exploring new, truly gorgeous zones.
We want to thank our members for allowing us to pull them away from the grind and celebrate last night's new victory together!

Congrats Arckonn, Halcyon's first member to 75!

Hatchet the Torturer down!

Danyelle, Sep 16, 06 10:26 PM.


The latest postcard from Halcyon:

We are celebrating our climb up the Big Killers chart, but
Hatchet the Torturer is NOT having a wonderful time ...

Wish you were here?
Well, head over to our roster and see if we are accepting applications for your class now! Good luck!

Valik down as promised ...

Theater of Blood: "I spy with my little eye ..."

Danyelle, Sep 5, 06 10:41 AM.
So, our first night in Theater of Blood was a productive one! The content we've encountered in ToB has been fun and a nice break from our Demiplane focus!  Our night started off with this guy:




(Shame on Gnarlibramble! That ain't right. Forgive him, Lord.)


We found ourselves aggravated (obviously) by an audience. It's not like ToB is crazy challenging so you can imagine how perplexing we found the following shadiness.

After downing the tedious tree and moving to our next target, we were curious as to what was amusing the lone LoM cleric at the zoneline. While waiting for clerics to give the go ahead for Anastasia the Thought Drinker, one of our rogues was dispatched to take a peek at their target via /assist. Sure enough, a Halcyon monk showed up on HoTT. To be equally aggravating, our monks camped to clear the individual's target but to our surprise, moments later, the obviously bored individual magically reacquired targets from  across the zone.

... you draw your own conclusions!

The following night (sans audience) we returned to ToB to explore a little more, downing the Maestro and coming terribly close to doing the same to Valik! Expect his demise soon as Halcyon's pushing ourselves to kill everything in sight before the expansion release! Anything to spare ourselves the patronizing "... yeah, but we killed it before level 75" nonsense!

In short, it's an amazing ride right now (as always, really) as we feel Halcyon is on the cusp of a higher tier of raiding. That being said, the mobs change but as always Halcyon remains the same! After all ...

  • From Grummus to Demiplane in under 21 months? That's insane.
  • Doing it with the best folks Norrath has to offer? That's Halcyon!
  • Remaining the same bunch of boobs we've always been? That's priceless.

Summon your corpses, Halcyon! There's loot to be had! (*see disclaimer)

Oh, and the Daheal /poke ... we're fully aware that LoM is an honorable guild full of great people. It's tragic that the shady behavior of one (especially considering they are listed as a raid leader) can sometimes be a poor reflection of the whole. Remember: Every time someone uses a hack, Karana kills a kitten.
