Disbanding the Guild


A few years ago, Nancy created the "SleeplessKnights" on Uther. Her intention was to ensure that those of us who had known one another, forged friendships through the medium of EQOA would have a means to stay in touch with one another. This was after the Velen guild the Villains of Tranquillen had already been formed. The Knights were also a means of keeping friends from the past united despite the fact that some of us preferred to play Horde, while others of us preferred Alliance.

But times, and people, change emoticon Nancy (and others) moved on to a raid guild to experience end game content, our Velen brothers and sisters preferred to play Horde, and more and more Knights ended up leaving, either for raid guilds or to join the Velen guild. In the end, people did what they should do, they chose to go where their level of "fun" is.

Having said that, I also need to be honest enough to state that logging into a guild that is mostly made up of people who've not logged their Ally toon on in a year is disheartening emoticon We've become a closer-knit guild as a result, but the remainder of the guild has become a stable for unplayed alts or toons that are played once a year or logged onto for the occasional Blizzard gift. It just feels counter to what Nancy's intention for the guild was.

So after long deliberation and input from Nancy and the Elders of the Knights (Ed, Shelley, and Ken), we've decided to disband the SleeplessKnights. As of midnight tomorrow night (Sunday) the Uther SleeplessKnights will be no more.

I did want to thank Nancy for her commitment to the principles of the Knights and for making the safe harbor for many a toon over the last couple years. And to Shelley, Ken, Kapp, Chris ([sign in to see URL]. "Homie"), Penny and John for being the outstanding Knights and wonderful friends that they are emoticon Looking forward to new adventures with ya'll.

To quote the infamous Diaperman "We are Knights, not saints" emoticon

A heart felt thank you to all the Knights, and especially the ranked members, for the contributions, time, help and support that each of you did to carry on the name and rep of a great guild! /proud

This was sad to read. I wish I could have given more time to Peital and spending time with the Knights. I wish you all well in your next endeavor.

Sorry to hear this, hope you can all find a new home if you choose to carry on.

If Lisa and I can offer any assistance in helping you find a new home, please ask. We have a lot of good contacts on Uther.

Re: Disbanding the Guild


I know exactly how you feel Di. When Bob and Mckenzie left me Dragon Raiders on EQ it was great for awhile, then of course we all know what happened with traffic.

I enjoyed every SINGLE minute of my time spent with you all during my fairly short WoW tenure, and wish I could have found more justification to keep playing. But alas, although the core Knights you mentioned will always be for me, the game wasn't.

I know you all will continue in the spirit you always have, and will probably be together regardless of what guild name is flying over your heads.

Good luck.
