First off, thank you everyone who has ever been a part of FoH. Even the people that joined just to tell us we suck, or to attain the rank of officer with the intention of kicking others out, thanks. I never intended or imagined that we'd have a 5 year celebration, as this guild was made to make fun of a very specific community on a very specific server, and never house more than 3 or 4 players (2 of them being alts).
You have made it something more, and kept it relevant throughout many servers and many games. We've been a respected PK guild, a laughingstock, a hated pk guild, an application-only raid guild, a tight-knit friends guild, a small respected good-guy guild, and of course a chaotic mess. All of them were fun.
Anyway, like the subject says, when did you first experience Flowers of Happiness?
What did you do immediately after you got in?
If that memory isn't particularly entertaining, pick a favorite or make something up.
I'll go first:
My earliest memory was being very, very excited. I had to pee but I wanted to play EQ even though I was wearing really nice pants that my mom bought. The guild name had just been approved, and that made me extra excited so much so that I was about to burst were it not for my hands. The original idea for the name (happy flowers) had been rejected a day or so earlier by the GMs. Way back when, online RPG's didn't accept the silly names that are so common these days, so we had to "roleplayify" the guild and its name as per Sunshinne's suggestion. It worked.
Anyway, I ran to Field of Bone and as my character ran I got up and ran around my chair and this screenshot should tell the rest:
PK'ing back then, as some of you remember, was a big no-no. The Rallos Zek community frowned on such actions, for a death cost a player an item, and items were very hard to obtain.
The next 5 years were more fun than my first.
