Firstly, a shoutout to Rob/Omegastomper, a real life friend of mine who today beat testicular cancer.
The Reckoning, June 20th of 2011.
WG members sat in silence upon the gilded benches of His Lordship's throne room.
The anticipation of the Reckoning, waiting for the stroke of midnight.
The excitement of our first forum switch in years.
The awe of the vast structural changes that awaited.
And the re-opening of the junior clan, the Descendant Guardians.
I remember it like it was yesterday.
True enough, we didn't have the luck our predecessors DG1 and DG2 had.
DG3 opened into a decaying clan world, and it has not been an easy ride.
Even to this day we struggle with numbers, action and fights on our level.
But we never stop trying.
So many people said we couldn't compete.
So many said 2011 was no place for a junior clan.
So many said that we wouldn't last.
I could not be more proud that we have proved them wrong.
Today, DG celebrated our first birthday.
Never before has the clan survived to see it's 1 year anniversary.
We had a huge anniversary celebration, which lasted over four hours.
Barrages were cast, cabbages were dropped, steel was tanked and bank loot was made.
It was by far the most fun I've had in quite some time.
Stage One: Battle Royale
After some work, we got the Citadel battlefield set up and went to work killing each other.
Stage Two: One Night In Cabbage
Honouring the age-old tradition, we decided to cabbage-bomb the GE. It got quite the reaction.
Stage Three: Steel of Legends
Ah, steel wars, they're too much fun to die out. We invited our allies BlacKnights along for a nice Wilderness fun fight/
Stage Four: The Rebirth
I seriously need to stop doing drop parties. WG and DG members now own 10m of my wealth.
And so the first chapter of Descendant Guardians comes to a close.
It has not been easy, but it has been one hell of a ride.
But this is far from the end of our story.
A final note - we would not be here today if it wasn't for every other active clan out there.
To BlacKnights, The Sabres, Downfall, Divine Forces, and everyone else who still masses up for some fun - thank you.
Maybe the clan world isn't as glorious as it once was.
But that doesn't mean it's not worth the time we put into this game.
Thank you for giving us our first year - here's to many more yet to come.
