    It goes without saying, that fulfilling the role of Leader in the Moors can offer some challenges. Understanding the roles of your group, and the abilities of your opponents group, and getting everyone in your group to understand it and act swiftly can be difficult.

    Is it just a game? "Yeah", are we just people? "Yeah", different opinions or suggestions can be expressed, causing confusion at any time, with unintended negative results. No matter what you do, there will always be those that hate you and those that like you. With all this chaos happening during raids, why do you keep doing it?

    Because you are Leaders!

    It doesn't really matter what your reason or motive is; either helping greenies understand the game, zerging for renown/infamy/comms, trying to make the game fun for everyone, or for your own personal satisfaction, you take the mantle anytime there is a need. It is very seldom said, but a big "Thank You" is in order.

    So to Akthuri, Eli, Heston, Storm, Ace, Slam, BH, Grim, Sat, Fungo, Maggot, Shupth, Vamp, Ash and all those that fulfill this need, "Thank You" for what you do or have done for us......./Salute

    "To lead people, walk beside them ... As for the best leaders, the people do not notice their existence. The next best, the people honor and praise. The next, the people fear; and the next, the people hate ... When the best leader's work is done the people say, 'We did it ourselves!'"

    I have a great amount of respect for those that are willing to lead. So I completely agree with the sentiments in this thread.

    Thank so much, for recognizing me, TheStormKing, as a Moors Leader. It makes me so warm and fuzzy inside.

    But I have to take issue with one thing.

    Ace, Slam, BH, Grim, Sat,...
    I thought we agreed to never refer to Stormgrim by his nickname of "Butthole" outside of the moors? He's going to be mighty angry. He might increase his rate of renown gathering beyond that of mortal man.

    you know it's really funny to watch what people pick on others for. Probably not many left from the days when I used to lead raids. But I did pass on a tip that was taught to me about moving around and taking things in locations that would force movement and groups splitting up and spreading out to go scouting.

    You can make fun of flipping isen all you want, but Daruk taught me and I taught those who raided with me, the value of flipping isen. It's a place the creeps can't just map into immediately and wipe a smaller freep raid. The map points are far enough out that if you can get in there and hit it quick and hard you can flip the keep, get a morale boost for your group, small victories can be fun. Horse up and move and often creep groups will come in too late, strung out, not balled up, etc. And it was a way to get some fun fights up in the mines, or the areas around it once horsed up and mobile again, etc. I know you all joke about the ease of flipping a keep. But there was a time when it was a necessary means to provoking something other than the stab or wtab shuffle or a rez camp, etc.

    My favorite leaders: Daruk, Findail, Drakgor, Shakda, Fungo (esp if really drunk) and Githorin. I was never (imo) a great leader, I only lead when no one else would, I prefer to just do my job and help us get kills no matter what toon I'm choosing to play at the time. I'm more of a back seat leader, I often make suggestions and if they don't take them, fine, but I know my personality and vocal tones are not always the best for leading and generally will defer to others leading.
