It fills me with great regret to inform you that today we lost one of our own, Brad Ryan Wisniewski, known to many as Carnon.
Though Brad was only with us a short time, he made a good impression on everyone he interacted with, and was always willing to
lend a hand.
One of the last things Carnon said to me was the following:
[Sun Feb 16 23:57:34 2014] Carnon tells you, ‘thank you so much bro… not even counting the crazy loot tonight… i feel really at home here and am very happy… i enjoy logging in … not felt that way in a long time … thanks for giving me the chance… you have made the game fun for me again’
No Carnon, thank you for giving our guild a shot at having you in it. Thank you for always keeping the positive side of things in any negative situation. Thank you for everything.
Brad served in the United States Navy, was an avid Ravens fan, and was a great cleric. As a whole, Realm of Insanity will remember Brad, and
we are thankful for the time we had with him.
We extend our deepest condolences to his friends, family, and loved ones in this time of grief.
Rest in peace, Brad (Carnon).
Yo everyone. Look at this shit right here. Look at this shit right here. You’re probably wondering just what in the fuck is going on here. Now don’t panic, let me explain. I know what you’re thinking and it is understandable. This is definitely out of the ordinary and somewhat unexpected. So let me just clear the air and we can move on…
There comes a time in every man’s life when he has to put the past behind him and make a change. It might not always be what you had planned on but life has a funny way of doing that to ya. Well I’ve made a change. I’ve turned a page. And tonight you’re all getting a glimpse into that change…that page, that new chapter. That change I speak of is obviously…doing timely website updates.
Now hold up, don’t get all crazy and shit. Even though we beat the new expansion just yesterday and we have a website update ready for you today, I don’t want you thinking I’ve gotten soft over here. I’m a “stick to my roots not the suits” kind of guy, nam’sayin? It’s just…I don’t know how to explain it. It’s just…we’re still in the honeymoon phase of this lil soirée and lying to a new guild leader about doing timely website updates is really quite thrilling. Last night, I tested the waters a little and pushed it out just 1 day and he ate it right up. Next time, I think I can get 2 days and then 3 days and then 4 days and then 5 and then next thing you know 12 months has gone by without a website update and we’re all tangled in a web of carefully laid lies in an effort to keep The Slack™ intact. It’s better than I could have ever imagined. Realm of Insanity, where dreams really do come true.
There. Now we’re all on the same page so let’s get on with it. So a lot happened yesterday. If you blinked you might have missed it but the much heralded 20th expansion of EverQuest, Call of the Forsaken, was released. I was sitting at work and got an email in the afternoon proudly proclaiming…
And then just moments later…
Ok so it didn’t happen that fast. The real timeline was more like: I was at work and got a text that we were starting raids. I drove 30 minutes, got home, logged into the ground-breaking 20th expansion Call of the Forsaken and the first 2 events were already dead. I went AFK to feed my cat and the expansion was over. True story. No but seriously, I’m exaggerating a little bit. Let’s be fair. There are only 4 events in the expansion so far. Still, they could have been 4 difficult events. Instead, Call of the Forsaken has more casual encounters than Craigslist. This might be the first time in EverQuest history that it took longer to pre-order the expansion than it took to beat it. Still, we crushed it. More importantly, we crushed it before anyone else did making this the fifth consecutive game-wide #1 victory for Realm of Insanity. Fif.
So that’s it for now. We dominate, we celebrate and we masturbate while we patiently await the next installment of Call of the Forsaken. And as always, I promise we’ll have some website updates in the meantime. True story.
Real update coming soon…™
(It really will be soon. No, seriously.)
