Confessions of a Raid Leader – Foul!

Previous Confessions [Part 1] [Part 2]

Being an EverQuest raid leader is a position of responsibility. Sure, it’s not on the same scale as school teacher, police officer or children’s TV presenter, but it should not be taken lightly. As a raid leader your actions and language should be an example to those you lead. Raiders are of all ages and backgrounds, ethnically and religiously diverse and you should always take care to be courteous.

Choice of words therefore is critical. I would strongly advocate never swearing.

Unless absolutely necessary.

Such as in the following situations.

Readers of a nervous disposition or delicate nature should stop reading now (also, if you’re under 18 you should seek your parent or guardian’s permission before reading, or check with your local wizard).
