    Default The Orgah appreciation thread

    Today i learned yet again that a long time Orgah had passed away suddenly and it got me thinking, just in case the Org will disappear in the great blue of internets. I want to thank all of you Orgah´s ive met here in these forums from ever since 2005 when i first joined this forum. Most have left,some are dead,some still lurk, some active,nevertheless. All just as important.

    There are too many whom ive crossed paths here in this forums to mention you all, but i just want to say to you all, so it will be said: Thank you. Thank you all for everything i have experienced here. All the things good and bad, sad and funny. It has had a profound effect to me these past 14 years and i would never give anything away from it. Thank you.
    Ja Mata Tosainu Sama.

    I was thinking about this when reading about the most recent passing, this is like the 5th or 6th one. Then I remember I've been here 15 years.

    This is literally the longest thing I have ever done. I have been here longer than I haven't. I am not sure what that means.

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.

    I was older than Strike is now when I joined in 2005.

    Gawain's Brother, TosaInu, Horetore, now Frags....

    And Kukri's voice somewhat muted.

    Saddening...

    Chipping in on this - I joined when I was barely a teenager, literally joining this forum while I was in my computer class at middle school / secondary. I met some Orgahs in real life, learned a lot of things here and I managed to significantly expand my knowledge of both the world and how people think.

    I am extremely thankful for this place and for the people here.

    Ja mata, TosaInu. You will forever be remembered.

    The .org has been a refuge for me, of vital importance i must add - as i'm sure to others

    Special thanks to TosaInu, CBR, Ra's al Ghul, Tomisama, Togakure and most of all to Puzz3D as well as everyone that played samurai wars with us, plus Caravel, Martok, drone, stazi end everyone in the MTW section of the forums.

    Its been quite a run

    It's been better than a decade since I joined the ORG, and it's still one of the first places on my speed dial that I look after starting up in the morning. All the discussions with folks halfway around the world that I will probably never get to meet in person, yet here we could find common ground to talk about our passion for Total War games, politics, religion, or just plain silliness.

    Thank You to everyone I've had the privilege to carry on a dialogue with

    And behind all that there will be way more: a deep underecurrent connection from life's similar troubles and similar personalities to take their burden.. believe it or not [and despite never having met them], there have been orgahs that i've seen in dreams..
