Checks the last post… Wow, February 2009? Has it really been that long?
I took off from the game twice before and, each time I came back, I found the guild had morphed into a new incarnation. This time around was no different. Akin to getting a new job, I came back feeling like there was a learning curve with all the new stuff and new people. But that’s to be expected. Having me back in game hasn’t exactly been easy on everyone else, either. We had a pattern in those days, and it took a little time for us old timers to remember how it used to be.
ORDK you, too, Pal.
God, this is worse than the time he tried learning how to use the in-game mailbox.
Truth be told, I was having a hard time adjusting to the new zones and new faces. I was out of my element, wondering if this was the same guild I had left? Did we have the same spirit as before? I needed that one constant, unchanging factor to tell me things hadn’t changed.
And there it is.
( <3 you, Luna.)
So we’ve been busy, ripping through instances — or getting ourselves ripped through. We started off on the right foot, defeating the Lich King. Kingslayer titles all around!
Congrats on a job well done! With the Lich King bested by us, we’re moving on to bigger and badder things in need of conquering.
What? No, I don’t mean bosses. I’m talking about teabagging Cat whenever we get a chance.
And it’s not just Cat we’re doing it to. We’re equal opportunity teabaggers — and some of us have the joy of receiving more than others.
Some may be put off by our closeness. Maybe our sense of togetherness comes off as a strange — but that’s the glue that keeps us together. We aren’t afraid to show our fellow guildies how we feel. It gives us that special je ne sais quoi.
Ah, togetherness. Just remember – business and pleasure don’t mix.
Except that it does.
Now if you find yourself confused, we have a LoO hotline to someone who can straighten you out. May I introduce you to Counselor Kellispel?
Listen to me, people. The sooner you come to grips with it, the sooner you can heal.
What? No, I’m not talking about your heart — I’m talking about your VD’s.
Then why does BJ have so many of them?
That explains it.*
So we’re raiding 10 man again, hanging out on Fridays in the hopes of getting purples.
The raid is posted every week, usually around Tuesday and Wednesday. Sign up on the boards if you want to go. A lot of the 10 man content is still challenging to us, but we’re getting better every time, working new strats hard and fast.
No, it isn’t. But I’m all about encouraging our raid leaders in the midst of a failboat. Especially when they’re drunk.
And Lifegripping one another into fire.
If you want to attend the raids, please sign up on the forums. Do not wait until Friday, then log in and ask what’s up. The board will tell you what’s up. If you feel like you’ve gone too much and you don’t want to come across as a raid-hogger, sign up as an “alternate”. That way someone can have your spot or, if we don’t have enough, you can be easily slotted in. The raid order is usually posted on Fridays so you can check the board to see if you’re on deck to kill some dudes, like this guy:
Now that I’m back, I’ll be updating the front page more often. As a reminder, I’m always looking for others to help keep the site updated, too. If you want to try your hand at it and help keep the front page updated, please let me know. I can be reached on the boards or at the guild email: zugsucks at gmail dot com. Alternatively, if you have some great screenshots that you’d like to include in the site updates, please send them to me at the guild email.
Have a great week, LoOnies, and I’ll see you Friday.
*Cat means the French Laundry, not French kitchen. I feel obligated to point that out, in case Iraas has a major foodie fit.
