Player Provided Information:

I remember seeing Ozymandius losing link in the Guild Hall (back when it was unsafe) and logging back in with two or three corpses of Sadow at his feet and low hit points. He'd killed Sadow repeatedly - linkdead.
Life was always fun with the shaman crew - Azra, Huey and Sadow - destroying the guild hall. Recall would have like twenty people in it.
Sadow was the king of abusing repeated kills. He was awful about baiting people into multi-killing him, to the point where it was over the top. A lot of people used triggers and whatnot, and he would find someone that had a poorly written trigger and would repeatedly run into them at one hit point, knowing he'd die, then report them for the multikill to get them locked up in the cooler. I don't know when/why the Cooler came about, but it seemed like he was one of the reasons it got used a lot more.
