It’s somewhat ironic that the very earliest group profiled on 15 Minutes of Fame to have responded to this year’s for “Where are they now?” updates remains one of the most vibrant guilds making a name for itself in today’s game. Spectacular Death from Llane (US-Alliance) just keeps running “the stuff you wish your guild did,” tempting players in search of an active, engaged, relaxed and somewhat silly group of gaming friends. (Full disclosure: They tempted me into the fold, too.)
The spectacular attraction of Spectacular Death “As we head into our seventh year of existence, I guess that sort of makes us an ‘elder’ guild, in terms of longevity,” muses GM Gimmlette. “(You kids get off our lawn and leave the flamingos and the garden gnomes alone.) Our core mission is still the same as it was when we started, to see all and do all but in a casual fashion.
“It’s not a race, it’s a journey, and that journey is generally filled with hilarity and looking at the game from a slight skewed perspective. We’re the guild who revels in trying to skewer ourselves on the steeple of the church in Stormwind as well as working through SoO in flex mode. Elephant parades in Ironforge, naked runs of Molten Core, raft races in Krasarang, jumping off of Dalaran — yeah, we’ve done all of that, and more.
“We’re still going strong and I don’t foresee us closing up shop any time soon,” she continued. “I asked tonight why people stay in the guild and was told: ‘The dental plan means I keep all my teeth in raids,’ ‘the 401(k),’ ‘I was promised a pony,’ ‘Oompaloompas,’ ‘tasty cookies,’ ‘beer,’ and ‘earworm night’ … um, yeah.”
