Posted once in guild listing forums, I have had some ppl in game ask about guild and figured a quick history would answer some questions.
Guild was founded by Milkshake/Coffee and several members of Adventus Excertus, one of the earlier powergaming guilds on the original Khyber server.
The guild had alot of great players in its early days Emu, Crono, Prynce, Itrainz, Bourbon, Axer, Nelat, Hodeoten, Magnificence, Aesculapius, Brawler etc. It merged with Underworld Legion at one point and got members like Salima, Krumm, Perfection then Odyn. It was right around this time I joined. I had played since launch and had been both independent and a member of LOTH and LORE. Earlier this year Milk stopped playing and leadership fell to me. Approx 4 months ago right around the release of MOD 4 we merged with another great guild Golden Rule who had great players like Twoheals, Tabytha, Ages, Imij, Shey and many others. We renamed the guild the Horde which was the name we were known under when the servers merged. Eventually it was decided that there wasnt much player identification with the guild tag and we went back to the Free Companions moniker. Along the way we have picked up lots of cool ppl (Spyral, Buddy, Dubs, Abbigayle, Bus, Arnix, Phage, Toohotz, Wuv, Hallz, and countless others). Many members have come and gone with the updates but the constant has remained the same. We raid and in general play alot and I would put up the best players that our guild has as equal to anyone elses. And we have a blast doing so. We arent really recruitiing actively but if you happen to be in a group with us and are interested ask and who knows.
In any case a short history for those curious. Good luck and good hunting.
