I am throwing in the towel... after 13 years.... I AM SO DAMN SORRY !!! NONE OF YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS T ME... This is our community, this is life, this is major achievements... I have watched all of u grow, and continue to do so... This IS THEWORSTE NIGHT OF MY LIFE!!! Though I am done~ I helped a friend with coding issues, though I have not been in rune ground for years. As expected it all turned, as it generally does here. I help him figure out his issue, though he threw it in my face after I took the time to figure out the issue. No offense I am done... oh by the way ur welcome goonie... have some happy travels to what ever clan u go to! Life has a lot of ups and downs we must look at... ,mine is my family. NO OFFENSE F*K ANY GAME, you better get your prioretites right!!! FAMILY IS LOVE FAMILY IS LIFE... THIS IS A STUPID ASS GAME! I walk away happy, and let all this negative energy ride in my bluff! I have not even touched this game for over 3 years... and there is still drama... wow I feel blessed u all make me fight my stature here, yet I am moving on... I live for my family and really don't care what you all say. =iNi= is now done, u did it... good for you! you have now closed the main access to most of this games files/knowledge... if I don't care trhis game fails... bottom line! IM OUT!
i threw it in ur face by asking u to help me, then inviting u to see the fruits of u labour?
yes i was under a new name with a clan tag ... but t'was only a fake clan and fake name for humor, SHS wolfeyes shared this tag with laughs.
why did i then have this clan tag up under my server??? because i wasnt gunna host a buggy =iNi= server, once the server was fully debugged and able to run dedicated WITHOUT crashing every hr or so was i gunna change the server name??? YES.
INI is known for our honor and stability. to run an unstable server is....well i think any who reads got my point there.
You say your welcome as if i didn't even thank you for ur time. which i did when i invited u 2 come in game for once in a few years. and u couldnt even unsheath ur blade! Way to show honor! as far as the drama goes... YOU ASKED. i would have been perfectly happy actually PLAYING a few rounds. but ur infrequency breeds much chat!
Nothin that transpired today has any personal relation to you but u take it so personally just because the dirty name is invovled.
Your repeated insistance that " i had already made my decision" and insinuation that i had left the clan has pushed me out. im tired of being in a clan that appears to only show interest when i send out the battle cry's thru text and even then its for mere moments of battle with much reminiscence.
no more living in the past. Its time to look on to this future.
I am truely sorry to see the =iNi= Tag go down, especially without the blaze of glory we all thought there would be. But let it be known.
I DID NOT PROPAGATE THIS DECISION. THIS WAS DONE BY A MAN WHO IS OVER WORKED AND OVERSTRESSED TAKIN OUT REAL LIFE ISSUES ON AN OVER A DECADE OLD GAME. May =iNi=G00N[0S] and all he saw as his war brothers R.i.P
u can find me in-game under any hadle with the surname KermiT. </3
Del u stated when i join that the [REY] tag with live on thru me in =iNi= well now i have 2 dead clan under my belt and i never "left" either one. Both tags will live on thru ME and Me alone for I am the ONLY active player from BOTH clans. and many have concurred with this musing outside of the clan.

So, iNi is over? This would be some big news when the game was active, but now it's just an inevitability. I personally will continue to wear the tag when I do play Rune (which is occasionally) regardless of who says it's "over," if this decision truly sprang up over a spat between you two then I have nothing more to say on it. And if you really feel that way then so be it, it was nice knowing you Del, and I wish you happiness in all your endeavors.
If this site goes down, then I wish to say farewell to all my clanmates, playing Rune was a great experience. I made some great friends, that I talk to even now.
The Many Faces of iNi, What makes us.. Different from the others, Long live iNI!
Instead of letting emotional bullsh*t misguide you, you should have sat down and collectively thought this out, Del. Just my opinion; if you're set on letting go of the clan then give it to Bill or someone, albeit inactive he is, at least we can still say the clan is alive. Regardless, I'll be wearing the tag whenever I get on. I don't feel as if anyone in the clan has a real right to say "it's over. it's dead. move on.", it's the members decisions - you know, the decisions the members of the clan have been voting on FOR YEARS. -- The clan isn't dead imo.
Coincidentally Ezio that is why i told Del to make a forum post if he wanted to discuss the matter between me & him any further, but i requested it be in the members only forum to avoid a public blow out ( think princess and boo about a year ago).
When he stated he made the post he expected a reply right away, this sounds much like the actions of a totalitarian/monarch ruling, which is not that of =iNi=. I told him that I was gunna sleep on the decision before i made any posting and turned my phone off. when i turn it back on i got 3 texts from him going off the deeper4 end (wise cracking goon til the end ;]) and sparked my interest into looking at the post early. Albeit i didnt sleep AT ALL last night, this decision brought much heaviness to my heart, no matter how STUPID this game is. But. i made sure my decision is not out of spite or recourse.
Though it appears that iNi WILL live on when u gents get in for a few rounds, my decision will remain unchanged.
+1 to the bastard sons of the family they call =iNi=
farewell my friends, family & brothers, like [REY] u have all made a lasting impression on me.

Good post, Josh. It's very interesting that the youngest Member of the clan is the soul member that holds the embodiment and beliefs of what iNi originated from and the ideals that iNi stands for.
Del is a great man. You may not understand this outburst, you may not agree with this decision on his part...but he isn't completely unjustified for reacting this way. This isn't the first time this has happened. I can think of MANY similar events, several of which occurred internally with the ex-members of this family. It's a recurring event. People will join this family. They are chosen to join due to what they stand for before they join..due to their personality, NOT their "skills" in any area (battle, skinning, mapping, skinning) like other clans. But they change over time. Unfortunately, Deliverance cares so much that he is affected personally by it. There have been many times that HE personally took countless hours of his life helping others, and then in the end they use it against him...or leave this family for another after seemingly milking Us dry of what we have to offer. People get c*cky. I'm not going to throw out names...because this is all in the past. It's just as funny though that when this happens most of the time those people admitted/realized they made the wrong choice. But on Dels behalf... as we all know as being Human...when an event similar to things that happened in the past comes about, ALL of those memories come back at once and blow your mind...forcing an outburst.
Goon - I have no disrespect towards you...no hate towards you. But for you to jest and say you're the one who keeps this clan alive, and joke about maybe you being the "clan killer"? Come on. You have more honor than that..always have. I'm not sure what happened. I can see it as what happened to all the others though. You probably just wanted more. You want an "active" clan. We are not an active clan. But, we ARE an active family. I have family that I talk to or see maybe once a year in Real Life...but that doesn't make them any less of my family. That's the point behind iNi. We aren't just a clan. We don't have to be active in the game at all times, because we aren't a clan. This isn't a test of battle. We understand that we all have things that are going on outside of the computer screen that prevents us from Being on some, as Del so accurately put it, Stupid Ass Game. It was never the game that drawn me in...it was the people. And Deliverance is one person who has ALWAYS been there for me no matter what. From in game BS, to Personal life situations to coach me through. Because he Is family.
I am even personally guilty for doing this at one time...a Long long time ago. I became a part of something else in Rune with a couple of other players. Del was really hurt by this...I didn't see it at the time, but after a long conversation with him, I seen the error of my ways. If you're a part of iNi...then you're a part of iNi. Nothing more.
The one thing I don't agree with Del on is his "final decision" on this being the end of iNi. Whether he likes it or not, he'll always be a part of my family. Whether we give that "family" the name of iNi or not. That goes the same for Everyone else here. As far as "iNi" goes. It is not dead. As Josh said, that is Not Dels decision to make. He can take down the forums, he can take down the website...but I will still be iNi. As I know many of you will be. They could take down Rune, and iNi will still be alive...as long as we want it to be, as a family.
Del is right....many people take this game Way to seriously. It amazes me to see how Heated people get in it over dumb sh*t. Over skills, or talent. Over their "clans". They spend so many hours a week in the game, and it makes me wonder what their real lives are like. I know I personally don't even have time to watch Television anymore, let alone play a game. That is real life. But Del got hit with something more personal than that here. Family is everything to him, and because he has Always looked at this as an extension to his family...when he constantly gets sh*t on it just proves to him that maybe it's not really what he thought. So, naturally, he decides to just cut it out completely. It's the reasonable decision since it's not the game that he's here for. It's the people.
So I ranted a lot. But the bottom lines are: 1) Del is, for the most part, justified for his reaction due to past events. I do not have any less respect/love for him due to this.
2) Josh (Ezio) is awesome. He still holds on to what we should really stand for.
3) Goon shouldn't be hated for wanted something different than what we have to offer...but it's ashame that he's looking for a "clan" rather than this family. I still look forward to playing with him if I ever get the time.
4) iNi isn't dead.
5) iNi doesn't have to be "handed over" to anyone. It doesn't work that way.
I could say more...but, I'm afraid I don't have the time right now.
I'll say it but one more time. I never had intentions on leaving the clan. I never attempted to "bilk" del for his knowledge, honestly i only went to him after sitting for hours looking thru code and running test after test.
I didn't want JUST a clan i wanted a family as well. in-game yes i felt as i was the sole voice of the CLAN. I was branded as a man in a dying breed. but i wore my tag with pride EVERYDAY.
as a family. . . we are broken in my eyes. We can't even generate REAL family member posts without it involving controversy anymore.
This will be my final post as a =iNi= CLAN member. . . though i hope that I may still identify with my brothers in the great and everlasting FAMILY that is

Sorry the thread name was bad :/ I think we all know that ini is not dead, I was just saying I am done with the website and the game. ini is run by the people... not me(we all know that). The website on the other hand is what I was referring to. I have paid thousands of dollars to host this family's pages through the years... I will leave the site up until the next payment is due, after that it will b gone.
Standing Strong ! =iNi= tag is worn with pride, shining an image of who ... and what I am inside .

I can't play the 4+ hours I used to of Rune, my hands start to hurt after like 45 minutes. This isn't quite the game it used to be, in a lot of aspects. Bill and Josh and Cory and everyone all bring up good points.
This game is hard to take seriously for most people now. It'll probably just be maintained how it has been since the great falling off of 2008-Present: A tiny group of players that play randomly, sort of like picking up your favorite book and reading it every few years. You don't read with the fervor you used too, but that doesn't make it any less enjoyable.
So people can stop playing, or do whatever. I'll play intermittently forever; I still play with a handful of friends that I don't think anyone even knows since Cory and I have spread the game around to our friend circles. It's just not the game to load up instantly when I get home.
Shoot, I got to play with =iNi=Homewrekka the other night, he was on with a handful of good people. Rune forums and facebook are good tools to assure yourself that you'll have decent challengers in-game, but some people (myself included) don't really like facebook/net-surfing too much. It's more just dumb luck as to who logs on and plays, there's a dismal player base now. sh*t, even Bane doesn't play much anymore.

Im sorry youre done Goon. To make something clear, im not Claiming you did jusf that (milked for knowledge, etc.). Im saying this isnt unlike other times. Its similar enough that I can see why Del can take it straight to heart and see things that way. You may very well be the sole voice in the game RIGHT NOW. But...there has been other instances like this. Hell...there was a long stretch where noone was on (oldschoolers) and James rose up and ressurected the game. Yes..i give this credit to James because I feel he initually went out and collectively pulled all of us old iNi back in for some fun. We all ome and go. Thats what i love about this. Through all the uncertainty in life...theres always this one place, this one gettaway with people i genuinely care about to turn to. People who Always have an open year. Youve been the most actve player, yes. But that doesnt make you the Key component of iNi. I personally dont give a F if the community thinks we are dead. I know we arent. The members know we arent. We understand life. Those people who need go be active constantly to boost there In Game ego...they arent us. And they were never chosen to be. You, Goon, still are one of my fav people to play with..so i hope this decision, and my personal comments in these posts dont change that if and when i can ever be in game. Hope the best and hope you find what youre looking for in a "clan". I just cant agree with you thinking your active status keeps what iNi has been afloat...since weve been this way for lojg before you joined and disnt care what people thought
That instance with James was in my presence. Ireland map ^^; i remember it alll to well.
My main decision to leave is because of the questioning of my loyalty from a founding father, which came as a real shock to me. never expected it then after questioning, it is continually insisted that i am unloyal to this family. which i had been.
I do not look at any of these posts by the fellas to bring ill will. Many of you are some of my closest buds. and that will remain unchanged.
Wow, this is unexpected. What can I say as an outsider? I saddens me to see things have escalated this far. To me iNi has been one of the founders of Rune, always been creating new and interesting stuff, been there from the start. After all these years it's something that belongs to Rune, it wouldn't be complete without it.
Rune is currently going through some difficult times. Interest in this game is definitely decreasing and clans are disappearing. It saddens me to see one of the pillars of this game react about the game in that matter. Times are changing and people are moving on. To me the game is still the main source that brought many of us together, it set an age of my lifetime. Many of us have spended a lot of time making new stuff and playing with others, I don't think it'd justify all the time you have spended in doing that. It was always nice to see some dedicated people pop up and bring the old spirits back.
I'll try to keep this game alive as long as I can, people are always welcome to come back and cross blades once more.
I know I'm not part of this, I just feel like giving out my respect. I'll definitely make sure I'll backup all of the nice stuff on this site before things go down. I'm glad some people still want to keep the spirits alive, Rune will be incomplete without iNi. I hope this wasn't the last of you
it is continually insisted that i am unloyal to this family. which i had been
I'm personally not saying you were unloyal to this family. Hell, I don't know the circumstances of what Happened at all. None of us really do. The whole story hasn't really been spelled out. Everything I've said has gone by what has been said in these posts in this forum, and an understanding of situations in the past and unfortunate events that happened to Del. The things I've said only insinuate that you want more than this At this time...I thought this was the case directly from your first post that said: "im tired of being in a clan that appears to only show interest when i send out the battle cry's thru text and even then its for mere moments of battle with much reminiscence.
no more living in the past. Its time to look on to this future."
but never once had I thought that you were unloyal to this family, nor do I think it now.
