Back to T2, and it is now clear! Since my last posting, we've been back to kill MightyMouse a couple of times and pounded Grummus down as well. It seems like lately we just keep finding new and different ways to unintentionally break the scripts and then have to find a good workaround to salvage the raid. Hopefully more of these problems will be corrected soon! Here's some action shots for those of you who have not enjoyed the fights first hand yet.
We are currently recruiting in most classes, and our hunt for a talented DRUID continues!! We also have a particular need for tanks and big damage generators, as well as a bard who doesn't forget to log in every other day ;) If you're considering a change of scenery, are looking to get into raiding current content, or are interested in learning more about TR, please contact Adetia in game at luclin.adetia
Many of you may have noticed that our site has been up and down more then an elevator in a 200 story building. Our web hosting company suffered a malicious attack but things should have stabilized now. This has also impacted adetia's ability to receive email - if you've been trying to reach her, your best bet is to contact her in game, or ingame email. We are hoping this instability is now behind us, and thank everyone for their patience!
We went in to check out T2 last night, and knocked over Emollious with ease, which abled us to fast track our flagging by quite a bit. For those that haven't gotten to see it firsthand here's a couple snaps, however, we were a little sidetracked and didn't get any "action shots" this time. I did however inadvertently trigger the next raid shortly thereafter, which as you can see yielded amusing results!! Poor Drizerker! note: you can click on any photos on our site and they will be enlargened for easier viewing.

And if you've made it this far, I will leave this in closing, as something I have never seen before in all my years of EQ: The Drizerker Corpsefest.....
Many of you may have noticed that are site has been up and down more then an elevator in a 200 story building. Our web hosting company suffered a malicious attack and we're in the process of restoring both our site and forums. This has also impacted adetia's ability to receive email - if you've been trying to reach her, your best bet is to contact her in game, or ingame email. We are hoping that this instability will be over very soon, and thank you for your patience.
In the meantime, since our last update; we've been busy in game and have cleared TBM Tier 1 along with spending time in the revamped Plane of Hate and Plane of Fear. Since I don't want to tempt the internet gods too much with the current state of the website, here's a few pictures to keep you busy.

Our first honest-to-goodness raid day since The BROKEN Mirror went live has come and gone, and we laid the first event, Vim and Vigor, to rest. While adventuring has been quite enjoyable, and we truly enjoyed our time spent with devs this year on beta, the expansion has lived us to its namesake in many ways. Thankfully, our beloved Luclin server has finally calmed its rage down and is no longer giving us the greatest lagfest since Antonius Bayle on a daily basis. We are eager to see continued patching and updates to help put things with the new launch bit closer to rights. In the meantime, I'll leave you with some pictures from our first victory, in case you haven't seen it yet for yourself! We're on to the next....
Brace yourself... its a webpage update!! (and yes, that is a santa hat, because its been since uh, well, November since I updated the page last!) We're desparately searching for a rockstar enchanter!! Recruiting is also open for wizard, rogue, cleric, paladin, shaman and berserker, though we are always on the prowl for exceptional players regardless of class.
We've been quite busy since The Darkened Sea launched a few months ago... we're still working the last event of the expansion, but we're almost to farm mode. Here's a glimpse at what we've been up to lately... they say pictures are worth a thousand words, so here's some of the fastest EQ reading you'll ever do!
Here in Canada, it is Remembrance Day.
Remembrance Day, much as it sounds, is the day we remember those who gave their lives in military service. In observance of the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in recognition of the end of hostilities of World War I, Remembrance Day is celebrated in many commonwealth countries, and the canadian observance includes wearing a poppy over your heart, special gatherings, assemblies at school, and ceremonies in most towns and cities across the country. This year, Remembrance Day also celebrates the 100th anniversary of the beginning of WWI.
Today was particularly poignant as the National War Memorial was rededicated, adding both the Afghanistan mission as well as South African War, and the addition of a new phrase "In Service to Canada — Au service du Canada." Just a short time ago, this monument was the site of a horrifying shooting that killed one of our soldiers on home soil, just two days after a separate incident that left a warrant officer dead. I have been so proud of the way the media and the country in large has focused on the valiant sacrifice of the soldiers and who they were, rather then shining the limelight on the perpetrators of these terrible attacks.
Back in the US, it is Veterans Day, a day in which we honor all of those who have served in the military.
TR has a long tradition and a special place in our hearts for being a second home for service members, and we have been home to scores of active duty, wounded and disabled veterans, retired military personnel and the actively deployed. It has been our honor to fight alongside of you all, even if only virtually, and know that we all support and appreciate the sacrifices you have all made over the years. Whether you are a simple private or our very own colonel in residence; toughing it out on deployment; enjoying your retirement; still climbing the ranks; at sea, home, or stationed overseas; we are SO proud of you, and thankful for your service. Let us also all remember that this service does not come without cost - and be ever mindful of our collective responsibility and duty to assist our soldiers and their families who need help readjusting to the every day, civilian life.
I'd also like to say a personal remembrance and thank you to the families of Volar, Carnon and Aaryanna, all who we lost this year to illness and personal struggles - though their deaths were not associated directly with their service; all were military in their past lives and today I remember them as I remember all others who paid the ultimate price for our freedom.
Its been a long, hard winter this year in Township Rebellion. In addition to the brutal cold and harsh weather, we have had to deal with losing more then one of our family. We will keep them and their memories alive in our hearts and thoughts, and it is with a sad heart and somber duty that I created the Township Rebellion Memorial Wall. While I knew that this day would one day come to pass, it was made particularly difficult because our first fallen rebel was way too young to leave this mortal world.
Our first memorial gallery is dedicated to Adam Justin Carroll, or AJ as he was known to his friends, aka Aaryanna the Enchanter, 1980 - 2013. Aaryanna was a member here for a very long time, having joined the TR family in 2004. He passed away some time ago, about 6 months ago, but we only recently learned of his passing. Please take a moment to stop by our gallery and share a story or remembrance - comments are open to all but are moderated and will appear after approval.
Rest well, AJ.
