|The Monks Thank you all!|

...and YES....celebrate again with lot of wine:).
After 4 eras of enjoyment, the KD will take a Summer break. Vacations already started for some of our last era's members and will happen soon for most of our remained members this era.
Now, understanding that people have different opinions on our history, i would still like to have a brief post-mortem of what happen to leave it to the future generation what happened and who were the Monks:) in their 4 first eras.....I have my opinions, i understand people might have different opinions...you are free to interject, but DO NOT BE OFFENSIVE (call names etc.).
- SECOND ERA OF DRAIKEN (START)
It's the KD formation, from a former nucleous of proud Pirates. After securing borders through victories with Kingdom of Heaven, Jester and partially One and Only, the KD entered a collision path with Abydos. We napped KD of Crown but when Abydos did not concede us a Nap at the same time Napping KoFCrown, we understood that war was inevitable.
War with Abydos went pretty well and after establishing supremacy in one of the 2 Abydos's core areas (at least where Osiris and otehr folks big mines were), given to the fast advancement of Legacy from the south, a peace agreement was signed with Abydos.
The era ended with some satisfactory battles fought against Legacies vanguards. We were able to keep our blockers and to successfully counterattack in their newly acquired territory.
- ERA of EZATIOUS (CONSOLIDATION)
KD grew 2 times. As imaginable, coordination and activity...were expected issues. We faced and dfeeated Girls powers challenge and, then we advanced towards Legacy territory. Good fights happened but the short era did not give any party good satisfaction.
- ERA of VIRGIN (VICTORY...yes!..Victory against any tentative to say otherwise:)).
We started very close to Abydos (west) and Mirror (south). Our base of players was increased through very firceful elements from Holy Flames that restarted after an unfortunate fight with Abydos.
We were preparing to fight Abydos, but a couple of our KD's members (ex-Abydos) suggested to start thinking about Legacy instead. Legacy was further north but we knew they were expanding very fast. Arrangements for a Nap with Abydos were successful even though difficult, due to pushes by the Abydos leadership in renogotiating terms they accepted for 2 times (pretty upsetting to me).
Forgot about Carnage...they asked us for a Nap almost OOP and after some thinking we accepted.
In the meantime, Mirror atatcked us while some of our memebers went almost inactive. Well, the war against Mirror (that is not an easy KD to war as somebody could try to make us all to believe) went good and ended with a victory.
Abydos in the meantime, declared war on Legacy as we learned from the public forums.
After defeating Mirror, we immediately moved our HoH armies from the extreme south to our northen blockers (it took more than 60 hours for my HoH to go up).
Legacy was already at our blockers. One and Only sneaked attacked Legacy. We reinforced our blockers, made sure our magic was up. Legacy vanguards did not pass our blockers an startegically retrenched. An expedition was sent furtehr north to take control of the ex-IE area (between our core and lEgacy) that legacy was using to project its power on the area. Some of our strongest members went inactive, we had some good fights and we casted Arma. One of our members CrissCross was number one HoH (congrats to him!).
- ERA of CRISSCROSS (the gangbang)
Well, we got into the era we 1/2 of the members and already the knowledge that we would have been attacked by everybody...but we still stood up. In otehr words, we preferred to take the bash, instead of disbanding the KD.
And it happened that we started between DB and Legacy...no history there....but we did not die. We planned a strategic withdrawal into teh south...our scouts travelled thru very hostile lands and our vanguards ensured a safe area for teh rest of the mates. We had again our core....but hostile hordes were coming fast towards our area. We fortified our core and made our preparations. Attacks happened from 4-5 different sides simultaneously and our defenses did not resist. Our core fell...................and the fierce Monks were outnumbered....
...............but we still continue the fight. Our armies are now running in Mirror's core (one of the Kds that attacked us)......and will die there....fighting............contrary to the false belief and accusation that the Monks are just a KD of explorers (even if it was the case....I dont see the issue).
So, I cheers all the Monks that shared with me this great journey and most importantly the ones tha tstayed till the end. We all be Monks forever.
TO THE MONKS!!!!
If I look at the past 15 eras, The Monks are one of the few KDs that actually placed one of his members to the number 1 spot (the others are Legacy, NT, and Vendetta). No others current KDs can claim this.......NO MATTER what....to me this is a great achievement for a KD composed by players with a level of experience that is 10-20% on average of the current top KDs in Fantasia.
...woa..that was long:)....please remeber not to Offend....you of course are free to comment however you want. Free speech, but no offensive speeches please.

You misdescribed the era of virgin as "victory" instead of what it should have been: "whoring to the max".
|10:36:38 Jun 17th 07 - Dark Lord Balzamon:|
last 15 eras these kingdoms have had first placed player
so how about checking before making claims?

"I do. And it seems I'm not the only one. But then again maybe I'm an
inbred, self-absorbed, thigh-stroking punk too... I'd rather not
believe all the bad things you say bout them Monks as long as I don't
see it myself. But of course you can keep your opinion."
|20:37:24 Jun 17th 07 - Mr. Wiseguy:|
Have a nice vacation guys!
|22:01:32 Jun 17th 07 - Mr. Drunken GT:|
Vacation sounds fine with me :)
|23:43:01 Jun 17th 07 - Mr. Thor:|
Have a great summer guys. Long live the Monks ! :)

Devi, I never forgot the help some of you guys gave me, in both knowing how the game works and learning its history. I liked you a lot and respected you and you know I have.
Unfortunately this era I managed to see your real face. Maybe you consider to have not done anything wrong but Swifty's, Draiken's and your ingame messages were just not right, your attitude was not how I expected it to be.
Anyway, I don't think I really talked that much about what you guys do...
|10:00:20 Jun 18th 07 - Mr. Crissxcross:|
I know less about arrogance lgc people, most of them I met in the field are tough and fine players, but I also have to say that Dingleberry Dave post more crap and hate then two kingdoms could do all-together. Which makes lgc look arrogant*n.
