Giving thanks.

Recommended Posts

I do understand that I'm hopping on the bandwagon here, since I'm not affected by it in anyway nor (probably) ever will be.
But I do understand that Thanksgiving is about food, family (+friends) reunion, sharing what one's thankful for.
So I'd like to have a go at it:

I'm thankful for this server.

I'm thankful for its peculiar staff.
I've never known a staff (in terms of low-rate-ragnarok) accumulating a decent playerbase, putting out frequent updates and still managing to be likeable, well-spoken, well-mannered and most importantly - being down to earth.
I feel like I can trust this staff, be it the moderators (read: moderator) [read: Steph] or the 'GMs'. I've never witnessed them acting out of line or (to use the new fancy word they're using at RMS now) being biased. Which - of course - doesn't mean you guys are washed down. I believe you took the concept of 'killing with kindness' and ran with it. It's quite amusing to watch how quickly one's silenced by just some strategic ignoring, a small DM or a more authoritarian public nudge. The key to this kind of 'power' is mutual respect. And nobody in the world of private server ROing deserves more respect than you guys do. Thanks!

I'm thankful for its even more so peculiar bunch of players.
There are no hard feelings. There's no *real* argument or 'hating'.
In my months of playing I've encountered many a personalities - some of them rather likeable, others not so much.
Aside from the occasional person snowing in from another server to subtly advise their superiority or the drunk spamming person on discord (*cough*), I haven't met a single player who wasn't treating me respectful, at least to a certain extent. It's a rare thing to combine a bunch of people from all around the world, a lot of them with diverse and complex personalities, not just the usual passerby you'll forget in a day or two, and make it work. And I do believe that is partly thanks to the staff but even more so and to an even bigger extent thanks to the players themselves.
So I want to thank you guys as well, for making my singleplayer experience so much more enjoyable, interesting and at times quite frustrating.

And - of course - I'm thankful for Lumen. Sweet Jesus.
