1) no to the 2 accounts thing...Jenia is a completely different person/toon/acct, she's just having computer problems so I was helping her setup the acct and that somehow screwed things up, neither of us could figure out how to redo her app under her profile so sorry for the oopski
2) I'm not the GL for FA so I can't guarantee it's folding...but I'll put it like this, imho if FA was a horse, it woulda been shot a while back :(

I had assumed something along those lines, unless you had some really well developed schizophrenia concerns.

I am sorry to hear about FA, loss of old school Vaz stuff is always a sad event to me.

I appologize for infiltrating your boards, but I have a few comments to make about Marcis. The first is that he is a truly amazing and generally quite loyal, but more on that in a second, SK. He was our class leader and a fine one at that. Add to that a general desire to assist guildies and ability to make that tasty cultural we have all come to know and love, I'm sure he'll be a no brainer choice for all of you to make.

Regarding his comments about FA folding, however, as of the time of my posting and his, FA has not folded. His comments, in fact, have resulted in some disputes within FA and we are not too pleased about them, but that is all water under the bridge. I would be a liar if I were to say that FA is not experiencing technical difficulties right now, which unfortunately is the sorry reality almost every mid-tier raider is being faced with on account of (or at least I personally believe on account of) Sony's choices in the latest expansion, but nevertheless we are still kicking, and it pains all of FA to hear that our esteemed member equates FA to a dying horse, which should be shot.

We're in a rough place, but the fight is still in us, at least for a little while longer. As for Marcis, as I have said, excepting this one, and only one, circumstance, he has been a wonderful player and friend during my time personally in FA, and I am confident almost any other person who has come to know him would vouch for his character and abilities similarly.

Swami Sannyasin,
80 Monk Class Leader of Fantasy Awakened

No problem Swami. I realise everyone has a different viewpoint on events and how critical things are. It's always based on personal experience and outlooks that vary widely.

First off I acted WAY out of line...I thought I made it clear that the perception was exactly that...my personal observation. I am very frustrated with how things went with FA and projected that in my app. Secondly, I was wrong in that I should NOT have app'd to CN until I deguilded from FA. I can make excuses but the reality is I have no good excuse for not following the rules, my mistake and I will have to deal with it and any crap that came of my comments. FA is experiencing problems, however I shouldn't project my opinion and "guild business". FA could recover, and I was way out of line in comparing FA to a dying horse. I sincerely hope FA does manage to recover and wish everyone in FA the best of luck and offer my sincerest apologies for any heartache I may have caused or started. I have deguilded from FA and hope that helps the situation some. I make no excuses for my actions... if this incident results in the removal of my app to CN, it's understandable under the circumstances. :(

Marcis is a good person and a skilled player (as is Jenia), I think he was just venting frustrations that all the leadership is feeling during this run of low attendance for us.

just a lil fyi...I realize I haven't been around as much as a good lil app should be, but I do have a very good excuse. I'm in the medical field as some of ya'll already know, I am also in the Army Reserves. Since the 25th of last month, I've been going to Army medical training 7 days a week, 7am-5/6pm ish. My classes will be over the 17th (this tuesday) so I should be more visable starting then. Just so ya'll don't think I'm a slacker or w/e.
And Happy Father's Day to all the dads
