    A1 Announces its newest Leader

    A1's New Leader

    Hello Shadow Era, good morning, good evening, good day and good night. It's all relative I suppose. After the events of the past few days we have come to a decision on our new leader. Actually this has been in the works for a while. Caitlyn0 was very careful to set this and many other details in motion and with a sad heart I completely understand why now. She talked about who should have this position, what were the qualifications and what she wished for the future of A1. Somebody who would push the members to be their best, to make sure A1 as whole stayed a strong guild in SE and that it's members continued to help the SE community grow and prosper. But mostly she wanted A1 to remember her final words and "Not gettting caught up in the crap you find in life!" She talked about healing old wounds, forgiving offenses and moving together as a whole, with unity. I just think she wants everything to start fresh.

    So that being said , we held a vote, after the unbelievable results, we held another one. Same thing happened....(I thought it was temporary group insanity or maybe everybody playing a joke I wasn't in on.) but, I was wrong and the guild has spoken.

    A1's New Leader is ( and I cannot believe I'm saying this)

    Kip Thorp

    Kip Dork , is what Cait called him, that's what I'm gonna call him feel free to do the same.

    He's got the qualities Caitlyn spoke of, as do many in A1. I know he will try very hard to keep us going into the future as a Great Guild. (This is when you thank God for a strong leadership team!). So everybody just give him a welcome and help the poor old guy out. Perhaps try typing louder and maybe use bigger fonts, I think he's going def and blind.

    So let me introduce our Lead team as they have been a great asset and help for quite some time and we will be adding a few more leaders to the group soon.

    I can't think of anyone better suited to leading A1 than someone who has been a silent pillar of strength for the community. He's done a lot more in the shadows supporting and helping out than many people know. And while he might deny it, he has all the qualities a good leader needs.

    Kip, your passion for the game has inspired many and I hope it will keep continuing to do so. Congratulations my old friend, and keep up the good work.

    I would say something respectful and reverent, but that's just not my style, so this will just have to do 😛
