Greetings my Dark Brothers & Sisters, and Happy New Shilen Year ! This is the first "State of the Clan", which will be a monthly post detailing what exciting things have happened inside the Shillien Empire ! First of all, the most exciting thing is the creation of our Shillien Empire Clan of course Well, ok, maybe the most exciting thing was the opening of this Classic server, but the creation of the Clan comes right after that And what's even more exciting is that a lot of people seem interested in it ! To be honest, at first I didn't even know if there would be anyone else besides me inside this Clan, as RP is probably not what interests people the most when they play Lineage II, but after just a couple of weeks we already have 12 people in the Clan, so we even had to get to lv.1 so we can accept them all ! Actually, we used to be 14 in the Clan, but 2 people left, and I'd like to address that as well. One of those people has been found cheating and botting, so his account was banned, and we applaud with both hands ! There is no way we will accept cheaters in our Clan, Lineage II is a game, which is meant to be fun, and cheating defeats the whole point of having fun ! It's a really good thing that this person is gone, it's also a good thing that he wasn't one of our more active members, so that's a little less disappointing for us. The only thing to say here is : good riddance, and don't come back The other person who left us did it because he wanted to be in a "top Clan", and of course the Shillien Empire will never be a "top Clan", that's not our purpose at all ! We are a RP Clan, so most of us will level slower than the average Lineage II player, but as long as everyone is having fun, there's no problem about that. Some people can play everyday, some others can't, so there's also gonna be some level difference between the Clan members, but again, that's not a problem for us. About the RP, we now have established our weekly RP Events which take place on Sunday afternoons, and the idea here is to come up with some kind of ongoing RP story that links all those events We are even thinking of having some rival Clan that could be our RP ennemies to spice things up a bit, but that's probably further down the road and will be addressed in another "State of the Clan" post. For now, our next RP Event will be about introducing our characters so that everyone knows a little bit more about where they come from and what their goal is. Talking about goals, our next goal as a Clan is getting to lv.3 ! The Clan is almost lv.2 now, but the really cool things will come with lv.3, with our own customizable Titles, and our own Clan crest ! So, let's gather our strength, hunt some monsters in the name of Shilen, and we'll soon be able to reach this goal ! Alright, that will do it for this month, let's all have fun and, more importantly, spread our Dark Elf Domination all over Aden ! Hail Shilen !
