Crazy Hopper Feat

September 18, 2014, my friend and guild mate, known to me only as CrzyHopper, did what nobody else had done or will do. He completed the Million Monster Massacre feat. At the time I wrote: “Hopper, right now you are the one and only. Others may get there in time. But nobody else will ever be first. What a tremendous accomplishment from a tremendous man. What's really great here is not just that you did it, but you did it while maintaining a pleasant, helpful, friendly attitude. You are a credit to the game. As a GM I'm thrilled to have you in the guild. As a person, I'm delighted to have you as a friend.”

I say nobody else will do it because Venan has renamed it in his honor, the Crazy Hopper. After they announced it, I wrote “What an honor having it in his name! And well deserved. Now I want to achieve it, where before I was so-so.”

I am pleased to announce I have completed that goal, and I believe am the first to have the Crazy Hopper feat. Actually, this is the third of three goals Hopper suggested for me. Done, done, and done. Thank you, friend, for encouraging me to reach my best.

I will follow Hopper’s example in giving thanks here.

Thanks to Venan for making a wonderful game and a wonderful community I want to return to every day. And thanks to the members of that community. I’ve fought together with many of you and consider it a privilege and an honor.

Thanks to the men and women of Helmsman’s Jacuzzi. They are not only great players, but encouraging, congenial, helpful, wonderful friends. Your support day in and day out means so much to me.

Thanks to my partner in this endeavor, Queen Amy. If I were trying to design the perfect in-game partner, it would be she. Together we will continue to reach for the ongoing goal of maintaining a welcoming, supportive, and successful guild.

Above all, thanks to my lady wife, Julene. I appreciate so much her patience, support, understanding, and love. If I were trying to design the perfect partner for me in life, it would be she. Thank you for 4 decades of friendship and love.

Congratulations on so many impressive accomplishments.

Looking at your list of past deeds, and the friends you have accumulated in BoH, I am reminded of the saying "A man is known by the company he keeps." ergo, you, and HJ as a Guild, are one of the most impressive people, and Guilds, in BoH [who isn't a SPOON ].
