TNF Half Year Review …

These posts are archives of forum / blog entries I made on my EverQuest guild website. The website won’t be around forever, and I wanted the posts all in one place so I didn’t lose them, this blog seemed like as good a place as any.

It’s July. I know, I can’t believe it either. In January of this year, TNF raided the Plane of Time for the first time, and at the end of January we beat Quarm. Two months later we cemented that victory by beating the most challenging TNF target up to that point – Uqua. No mean feat, it’s a tough zone increased level cap or no increased level cap. With our confidence high we took out Matriarch Shyra and Zomm the Seventh Born at the end of March, the biggest hitting mobs we’d ever seen.

And in June, ah June, the middle of the year, we took on the Muramite Proving Grounds and we put down a flag.

TNF will not be daunted by the size of the Muramite army, we will not cower at the depth of their hatred, and we will not step down in the face of their enmity. TNF has defeated the Master of Hatred. TNF has defeated the Master of Adaptation. TNF has defeated the people who defeated the Master of Corruption 😉

And by Brell, we very nearly wiped out the Master of Specialization as well. One percent stood between us and three new victories in one day. One percent. We gave our everything. We pulled out all the stops. We were not found wanting.

Next time, the Master of Specialization will recognise our force and next time he too will fall to us. We will not be defeated by him again – it will just not happen. You will not let him beat us. He’s our bitch, and next time we go we’ll remind him of that fact.

Behind us are victories and fights to be proud of. Behind us lies the trail of the defeated and the beaten. But ahead of us lies glory, opportunity, revenge.

Before us lies Inktu`ta in the land of Discord, where-in enemies the like of which we have never seen will test us with death touches, secret warnings and magical power of the nastiest kind. We will prevail.

Before us lies the Trial of Foresight, where we will be tested and tested again, our patience, understanding, attention to detail and ability to act as one will see us win through.

Before us lies the Trial of Endurance in which we shall be forced to give and give and give and at the end to give again. We will defeat the Dragorn who seek to block us from our righteous path.

Before us rest the Dragons of Norrath, Yar`lir, Rikkukin and Kessdona. Yar`lir has learned to fear us, and so shall Rikkukin and Kessdona. The golden hoard of the Dragons shall be ours, and we shall bathe in it.

It has been a glorious start to the year, and with you and your continued presence, strength, dedication and conviction, the rest of the year will be glorious too.

To TNF, to what we have beaten together, and to the trials ahead.

To victory.
