  1. And Order of The Blade, and Vita Brevis, and Storm of 4, and half the other guilds on the server. IA takes the credit for this primarily, but they did it with the help of most of the server (after all why not?). Not a bad deal though, to the victor goes the spoils, and they did end up getting most of the spoils. Which is why 4 months later the entire server turned on them too. (and lost). Then ScornDeath came and wiped us all out.
  2. Amun'raa says hi. DC was fierce   I okie dooked you at whooping stick though

      Hey man,

      Long time no see.  I'm not sure what Okie dooked means, but I'd attribute what happened at whooping stick more to UDL than anything DOF did.  <3

    2. scipio


      Its a cheap trick.   UDL had about 7 dwarfs there. Anyway I was excited to see ur name   Hope ur well.

      Hey man, you guys played the Game of Thrones and did what you had to do.  Excited to hear from you as well.  Hope things are great for you too!

  3. Jesus man (Man? Time? Can I call you Man?). You post just like I do. And btw I came when you started talking about classical military. As one history nerd to another, I have to call out one thing though. The Roman legion was just the name of a roman "division" whereas hoplite speaks to a particular type of troop. It would be more accurate to compare "hoplite" as a formation to the Roman maniple system, which was, after Rome itself abandoned the hoplite formation, the primary military method used by the legion. I dig your posts bro.
  4. I mean to be fair you're the one who brought up the leadership thing .
  5. From Detroit Free Press But this what Bettis did have: Detroit and his family, an extremely strong work ethic and enough sense to rely on the good people around him. Jerome Bettis on the sideline before the Steelers' wild card playoff game against the Ravens in Pittsburgh in January. (Photo: AP) "So I think growing up in Detroit you learn from all those life lessons that you're taught," Bettis told the Free Press in a phone interview. "It wasn't one thing in particular, but growing up in Detroit it really hardened me to the point where when I left and went to Notre Dame I was menta
  6. Actually, it is. Check out the research of a Dr. Carol Dweck who's spent most of her life studying how a person's mindset is at the center of their ability to learn and grow. It has little to do with any innate or ability given at birth. It's mostly about how you work through problems and handle failure.
  7. There is no such thing as a natural-born anything, to be fair.
  8. Can't emphasize this enough. This is true in life in any large venture as in any sandbox games. Leadership is at the center. It's not to say that leaders deserve all of the credit. The people who follow them do. It is to say though that the success or failure of just about any group comes down to leadership.
  9. There's a lot of truth to what you're saying here. Although in this case you might need to be careful when you see people "clinging". I think a lot of the clinging to SB has more to do with the extremely rich stories, politics, and social interaction. The PvP and competitive gaming aspect is there for sure, but I have to admit in retrospect now I've played far more mechanically intense games before and since Shadowbane.
  10. LOL this profanity filter. It'd actually be cool to get a steam group going with everyone we know from SB so we can catch up, chat, and play other games together in the lead up to this. Personally I'd be really happy to just talk to you guys (super busy at work anyway these days)
  11. Hey BB, We should get together and shoot the poorly made socks sometime. http://steamcommunity.com/id/Lindorn
  12. Love that screenshot Hades. Always hilarious to see the completely non-homogeneous scattershot of character/race combos throughout a large siege group of that era. The idea of a "spec group" was a twinkle in our eyes. Group X 1. elven blade weaver priest 2. Aelfborn ranger 3. Half giant warrior 4. Elven Mage assassin 5. Aelfborn Scout 6. Elven fury =perfect synergy
  13. I just can't get over how funny it is to me that anyone actually believes that any prior experience from SB beta, SB live, SBemu, or Magicbane is somehow going to correlate to success in this game. The guilds that can put aside their own egos and out think the horde of pubescent poorly made ***** talkers are going to be the ones that dominate. Another thought here is that unless any of these old guilds have a fresh roster of 17 year olds ready to play this game under your tag, you REALLY have no idea what's coming. I hate to say it guys but we're old now.
