Hey everyone. I used to play on Rushu as Riveth leader of Grace, a very long time ago. With the mass hack/password screw up and general dissatisfaction in the game, I left. Recently I was repairing an old laptop, the amount of screenshots and other tidbits (weddings, Lol) reminded me of some of the better times I've had with Dofus as well as the friends I made a long the way. So, without further ado for the people I lost contact with:
Guild Members of Mercy & Grace: Something that honestly was never supposed to happen. Looking back, I'm glad I spent the time. Through good and bad, I've never worked with a more amazing group of people I'd count as true family. The memories will probably haunt me all my days. If I had quit before we all happened together, I might never have gotten my laughter back after my father's death. Bit silly in a way I guess, but thank you. I'd never been apart of something so....I don't even know, dynamic? I guess. My sole regret, is that I wasn't a stronger leader in the end; and in that, letting you down. All of you, wherever you've ended up, are awesome people and deserve only the best. Thank you for the memories.
Veritian, Saketzu, Painlace, Crafted, Ama: I'm sorry. It still hurts a little (Dammot!). Between school and being fedup with things I wasn't there as I should have been. My reaction certainly didn't help any. You guys were some of the finest officers I've had in any guild setting. Hope you can forgive my mistakes of past. Had a lot of fun while it lasted.
Alen-eluht: IF you're still around. WHAT? I hope you're in Switz by now, with that lovely lady of yours. If not, WHAT?! Lol. Alen, you are a phenomenal person. Thank you. I don't really know what I would have done in many situations without you. Always the diplomat, you were. =) Thank you for everything. I'm glad you were around when I stepped down, I couldn't have left her in more capable hands.
Russians of Dofus-past: I know a few of you still play. You helped make Mercy what it was, and as maddening as it was to run a guild in two languages, it was pretty epic. Это было весело, эпический, и запоминающимся. Удачи в будущем, вы сумасшедшие русские!
ThatBelgianSramIForgotTheNameOf: ..xD We had very little time playing together, but you reminded me a lot of myself when I was a lowbie. Wonder if you ever finished your penultimate set? Had some good times bro, wish we had met sooner in my Dofus life.
Sirochan & Pra-Pra: 私は日本語がひどいです知っていると思う、と私はあなたは私を許すことができます。私はあなたに出会えて感謝しています。時々申し訳ありませんがジャークであることのため、素晴らしい時間をありがとうございました：D <3
Yuekichi: Recently found your number when I logged in here o-o maybe I can claim that owed beer finally ^ ^
Some Dame: Disappointing isn't it? *Shrugs* If you're still lurking, I still have that script. Wonder if you ever made something with it, was pretty good read. :)
THE MANY OTHER PEOPLE I'VE DORKED AROUND WITH OVER ALMOST FOUR/FIVE? Years YET SCRATCHING MY HEAD AS TO NAMES I CANT REMEMBER :( : All of you, thank you. Majority of members in Critical Failure<3, Majar's, few Blanks, Revo, etc etc. Friends and few rivalries, made the game both fun and challenging. =) I feel like crap for not giving you the individual call outs you deserve, forgive me ^^'. You guys rocked and most were funny as hell =)
And finally...probably the one person that single-handley made and broke this game for me:
Gorillaz-Noodle/Bunmi aka Noo-san,
I never deserved you. In game or out. If I'm to stand before Judgement at the end, I know this will be my one true Sin. Having you for a time, stealing that preciousness that was you away from the world and keeping you to myself as much as able. I regret so little, yet so much. Before you, I was naught but the pauper; a wretch wannabe explorer grinding boars. And then you, quite literally, appeared in my life. Never has one person, across thousands of miles, impacted my life both on and offline, so heavily. You made me the (halfway) decent leader that I was. You alone...you...made so many things worth working through, worth doing. We made an amazing duo, still brings a smile to my mug going through the crap-load of screenies and remembering the shenanigans. Breakfast Sausage and ghosts? Lol. You always had a lending hand, for any guildy or friend of mine. A chiding tone when I'd pvp over grinding the gear, or raising our "family" we'd created. A hammer when I got too out of line, ^_^ You were a confidante I always trusted and relied on; your advice and insights, priceless in the sea of endless chatter. Sitting here writing this out, so much is flooding back. I miss you Emi Sasaki. I owe much to you. You helped push away the shadows in my life. I can never repay you for this debt. But someday, I will make the attempt.
You are intelligent, kind, beautiful, caring, gentle and so much more..I never deserved a fraction of your attentions. Blissed to received . I'm sorry I never came to Japan...I regret making the other trip. I should have gone, hindsight they say is 20/20, but I could have never expected all the crap that was going to go down in our lives. I never thought it'd end, guess it shows how naive I was. I hope you see this, this tiny fraction of what you mean to me, so you know what I never fully said when I had the chance. I love you.
-Bryon "Riveth" Janich
