As August 1, 2018 approaches we are once again upon another guild anniversary. For six years now The Second Sith Empire has been helping to bring players together in game with various activities, events and social engagements. I can't speak for others but I can say that I've gotten far more out of the game and the entire online experience thanks to this guild. I've had the genuine pleasure of meeting a great group of caring, intelligent and passionate players both virtually in game and in some cases in person at our annual meet and greets.
We've seen friends come and go. We've seen each other's children and families grow. We've shared some great experiences both in and out of the game. We've even shared some personal tragedies and heartbreaking setbacks. We've gotten to know each other on a personal level I never thought possible in an online community. We've laughed, we've yelled and a few times we've cried together. It's been an interesting six year journey we've had together, one that I never foresaw.
I started this guild as a place for my son and I to park are alts in. It very quickly took on a personality of its own. I've been fortunate enough to have gotten caught up in it and enjoyed the ride. People have referred to me as the boss, the chief, the guild leader and the guild owner. I'm none of those things. I'm a guy who was lucky enough to start something six years ago that has managed to keep itself alive this long, sometimes despite me.
This is the members guild, not mine. It's each and every one of our members who makes it what it is and always has been. Sure we've had some great leaders to steer it in the right direction, and we still do. We've been very fortunate that so many skilled and intelligent people have generously dedicated their time and effort to help make this guild what it is. I'm not just referring to the guild leaders either. Our event runners and those who have willingly stepped up and taken on the responsibilities of keeping the guild running who may not have taken on an official role or title are just as important.
We'll be doing a number of special sales on the guild store this week to thank everyone for being a part of the guild. Check out the guild store and enjoy. Thanks to everyone for making this guild a six year success, let's keep it going!
Happy Birthday Second Sith Empire!
