Kerriariadne Chooses to Retire


[ 5] Kerriariadne: In the words of Will Bala'Bandienne
Tue Apr 13 21:44:49 2004
To: All

Yes, you'll probably recognize the basis of these words. Regardless, have a read and feel the same emotions I had while penning them. May you all fare well, may you all continue to enjoy the realm, its Imp, God+, other FLIs, and players as I have, and, of course, MUHA!!

*********************************************************
Darkness.

To be, or not to be: that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to continue
The chase and pursuit of glorious fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of otherworldly troubles,
And by opposing end them? To retire: to sleep;
No more; and by retire to say we end
The joy and the many paths of pleasure
That all Darklings are heir to.

This realm, 'tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish'd. To retire, to sleep;
To sleep: perchance to dream: aye, there's the rub;
For in that sleep of darkness what dreams may come
When we have shuffled off this immortal foil,
Must give us pause: there's the respect
That makes calamity of so long a virtual life.

And thus the Dark hue of resolution
Is sicklied over with the pale cast of lamented thought,
As yet another leaf besets the base of the Great Sequoia,
With this regard their currents turn awry,
And lose the hallowed and mischievous name of Booga...

Be all my sins remembered.

What can I say Kerri? Being in your following was the single best thing that has ever happened to me in my MUDding career. I'll always remember how you raised me up from those humble level 7 cleric days, And how you believed in me and took care of me, both in and out of character, when I was going through a rough time in my life. Thank you for your fun quests, wonderful gifts, deliciously twisted humor and everything else that I loved so much about the following.

I vowed to never join another FLI after your departure, and I'm going to stick to that. I'll miss you and hope you still drop by and visit from time to time.

*hugs* - Kaleyah

PS: We didn't reach 1000 deaths, wee!


[ 9] Kaori: On Retirement

Well, I really didn't see this one coming. I would be lying if I said that I wasn't disappointed. We had a lot of good times, and you inspired me to greater things. You made a great mark on the game, bringing back the Challenge and pushing us to redefine our own limits. Know that you will be missed and that I will keep the legacy of the Dark alive within me until my own retirement.

[ 11] Malakost: Final Goodbyes

Of all respect to any that i owe in the realm, the one deserving person would be Kerriariadne. He accepted me into his following as a single classed level 11 mage, knowing nothing of my my capabilities, nothing of my intentions, nothing other than the fact that i got him a unique quest item. He equipped me, provided a home for me, and gave me a following to really exert my efforts into.

Heh from the time we stood together and dropped a conclave ordain 30 effective levels bigger than me, to the times i died with him sleeping at the keyboard(hehe), we've always
had great times, and the same to the following.

I hate to see the group called "The Darkness" split up into the various followings of the realm, but i ask only that we remain peaceful to one another, in respect of our former lord.

Kerri, you will be sorely missed.

Your devoted General,
Malakost

Should i ever take the route of immortality, i will base my following strictly on what the darkness was founded on

The Booga lives on!
