At 9pm server on Sunday 29 January, we remembered our dear raid leader.
It was a good turnout, we even managed to get Tout on (our former guild leader) and he joined the raid from Dath'remar. Moisty, Guns, Amelior, Spoon, Splatz, Falln, Moodin, Aza, Kalandria, Gen, Lushen, Dil, Crooked, Thinto, Tye, Tout, Kath, Jartran, Eurie, Cosima, Akra, Seretis, Ram, Amayeti, Sev, Taxar, Stark, Faith, HK, Volrik, Lokang, Nabe, Ultra and myself all headed out to Argent Tournament grounds in Icecrown.
I had all these grand plans of feasts laid out to spell Xyn's name and a word but it was so time consuming and feast wasting that we just settled on Xyn and each of us stood at a feast. I had asked Splatz as he was the most industrious at these sorts of things to help out and he took it all in stride and even took on the responsibility himself (mostly because he couldn't stand the slightly wonky writing).
We then took a photo of us on Frostwolves, and also some of us on Xyn's fave mount, the Mystic Runesaber.
I gave a little talk on Discord. I mostly talked about how people shouldn't feel that they're not entitled to feel sad because there are others who knew Xyn better or longer. Everyone who felt Xyn's loss meant that they had a connection to him, and if Xyn knew how much he meant to us all he would have been really touched. I said that we are a guild and we will get through it together, as we are all here for each other.
People thanked me afterwards for organising this, for organising everything. I'm glad that it helped people feel like they could be together to remember the man we all respected. If Xyn could see, he would probably be moved to tears. But he would never tell you or I that.
Mauly and Zandru were sad they couldn't make the memorial, but I told them their thoughts were with us in spirit.
We'll never forget you, Xyn! I know how much the guild meant to you, and now you know how much you meant to us.
