Amongst the Legends of Darkness that Druchii.net had the honor to host, there is one which developed into a phenomenon.

Role Playing Group 22 started on Thu Nov 13, 2008. It has been running since all that time, which is for four years and four months and four days, outlasting all other RPGs and setting an incredible record.
Group 22 involved nine different playing characters. It has been going through no less than nine chapters. With more than 5000 posts, it dwarfs all other tales.

Alas! It is reaching an end, due to real life taking precedence.
It is time to thank Kinslayer for the incredible work he has accomplished, not only to Group 22, but also to Roleplaying in Druchii.net as a whole.

As it is not the first time Kinslayer has to renounce an aspect of Warhammer, and he has proven to come back as soon as he could, I am convinced that, like King Arthur in Avalon, Kinslayer will only be asleep for a while, until he comes back.


Thank you again Kinslayer for your dedication, and I add a personal thank for taking me over in the last chapters of your tale.

And see you soon again!

Nice one Kinslayer :) It's been fun reading along, even though I never played. Group 22 will be missed.

Good luck with wherever life outside DNet takes you :)

It has been a real privilege to have had the opportunity to be part of the group; albeit for a short while. The other members were a pleasure to write with, with real character depth and talent. Kinslayer's posts were gripping and well structured. Thanks so much.

Wishing everyone well, it's been a blast!

All good things must come to an end, and although this looked like it just might defy those words group 22 has also wound down. It is a sad moment for D.net's rpg (I get to say pompous stuff like that) but I am proud to have played a part in the adventure.

So Callisson, any fitting last tune for Caraoc to play us out on?

Caraoc will not die! His songs will enchant/bother other RPG sooner or later (not that soon, though).

Caraoc's last tune was already published, both in the RPG itself and the OOC thread.
I'd be delighted to see all other participants post a conclusive final word worth Group 22! :D

My last post, though short sums up Phalx in his best light.


I'm always up for more of this. Would love to find a new group to take in a drunk crazy Shade.

I'll miss this, in the first year, clicking on Group 22 was like unwrapping a birthday present every night [in those days it was every night too, sometimes twice]. That was probably when all the best rp was done too, we were all trying to find out who our characters were, running them against each other and everything else. This thread was role play gaming the way it's meant to be, when you just absorb yourself in playing your part and don't try to win.

I was surprised to read above that people who weren't players have been reading our thread. Did you read it all Syjahel? I wonder if you're the only one. Maybe there is some merit in Kinslayer's suggestion that the warriors of House Blackthorn should be brought to life in novel form. I would vote for a Group 22 graphic novel. [also I shotgun 10% of box office].

It's a fact that Group 22 is the longest thread in the history of dnet. I shouldn't be surprised if it was one of the longest forum threads on the whole internet. We must have been all bloody barmy.

So hats off then to everyone who played a part in it, especially the four originals who, I've just remembered, all came across from Group 13 when it died. It has been a pleasure messing about with you all. I don't suppose I'll ever forget how we came from four separate directions to save Blackthorn from a mugger.

Thanks again and best wishes to all,

Thanks for the kind words Calisson and everyone else. This truly was an amazing achievement not just for me but for the whole group, and I am very proud to have been a part of it. I do plan to write some more when I have the time, probably in the form of a prequel going into more depth about Blackthorn before the group started and the family war with House Tvar. But alas, those are tales for another time... for now I think we could all do with a well deserved break.

I shall continue to lurk here as often as I can, and I certainly can't see this being the last involvement I have with the RPG here, some day I'll be back.

Layne: I haven't read it all, yet :) There's still a bit to go. It's a good story so it caught my attention. Somewhat like a radio series, really :D I'd be surprised if I was the only one. Have you seen how many views the thread has?

Aye, all the best Kinslayer, I may be a viewer not a player but it's been fun!

I read before I was ever a player, it was and is a good story, especialy the early days.

I browsed the start of it, and probably will go through the whole thing in due time. It was more of the fact its been going on for over four years, it's kinda like "oh wtf so much to read!! @.@"

Anyway take it easy Kinslayer!
