Out of character: Sentimental post

When me and Huskii started this clan (organisation) back in 2018 we had no idea what it would become. We had been around for a good 5 years at the time, had taken many month breaks from the server and Gmod, and around the 2018 time when we had been back for about 6 months we decided to do something different. We had been in clans before, started our own ones like Aunt Peggy's Lads back in 2015, and ARCON group with Falcao in late 2015-2016, and they hadn't really gone anywhere besides maybe recruiting a few people and being a vessel to mess around and try out some new RPs. When the idea for Poseidon came along it wasn't created in any different way than the others, we just had a thought one day and gave it another shot with Ragamuffin in the earliest days of Poseidon helping out with trying to get the President to recruit us as a law enforcement group, eventually it worked and the 3 of us spent the day helping the SRU on raids, and we just felt in tune with that type of RP.

After a couple weeks of trying to get some legitimacy we had some applications come in and it really felt good, like we were achieving something with the work we were putting in; nothing major at first but we were taking the first steps.

Our earliest clan-to-clan arrangement was with Capone, which was very quickly terminated due to reasons at the time; and it felt like we had gone backwards, but we kept pushing on with the RPs, kept going on the build server and making cooler and neater builds with our clan logo, and bugging the president's to let us act as security.

Well we eventually hit gold. Me and Huskii built a huge complex in the MTL tunnel on V2d, and it was to us the coolest thing we had ever created on the server; and people saw it, you could barely miss it, and they were drawn to it. Asking us what it was, what we were about, and how to join us.
Within a few weeks we had grown rapidly into one of the biggest clans, I remember talking to Huskii about it at the time and joking we must've been one of the biggest in FL history with something like 40 active players in the clan, whether or not that was true I don't know, but the people were and we enjoyed the time spent with you all.

With growth comes rivalry, and we had our fair share of fights with The Crimson Order, a lot of that unfortunately spilled over into OOC, it was silly but it happens. Our huge in-game fights were brilliant, huge firefights in the tunnel building, we usually came out on top when we fought on our ground but believe me they got the best of us on many occasions!

We kept going and expanding and doing so many different and varied RPs but the common theme was that it made us love playing in this community more and more. You could usually find us taking over the government with a Poseidon employee as president and Poseidon acting as a law enforcement organisation, they really were the days.

We were given official status by JoeJoe, who's first clan experience (and his best) was as a QRF commander in Poseidon. Official status didn't really make us feel any differently, but it legitimised all the effort we had put into Poseidon to make it a nice RP experience.

Eventually though things came to an end, me and Huskii eventually tired of Gmod and decided it was time to call it a day, we took the step to close Poseidon not because we got bored of it, but because the game itself became more and more a past pleasure and not something we particularly wanted to keep playing; life events also played a huge part, for me I was going through incredibly tough and traumatic personal issues in my life which thankfully have long since passed, so we took the decision to retire Poseidon into FL history.

I wanted to take this opportunity to say to those of you that are left, or still check the forums, who were in Poseidon and made Poseidon possible: Thank you, Eoin, Declan, Baskinger, Equinox, BasicallyMental and many many others  even to the old Crimson Order guys, you made our time as a clan eventful and interesting, and the memories of Poseidon are the best I hold of Fearless.

As the server and community now drifts into what seems like obscurity, I wanted to take this opportunity to mark this down as a huge and immense thank you to all Poseidon members, you made us some amazing memories!

Below I've left some of the memories, from the earliest point of just me, Huskii and Ragamuffin to the full group picture and the names and titles of all Poseidon employee's at the end of it's life:

You are right, it all started with that V2D dupe. I still remember that day driving past it, seeing president talking to Huskii in that huge window below the Poseidon logo, and I thought to myself that I just have to be a part of that.

After a while, we even expanded the tunnel section into a huge superfortress that extended all the way from connectivity warehouse to MTL. Nobody made it to the end, the best raiders died in the forest right outside the final defense line. It was impeccable. I'll never forget fending off Capones while Eoin's sniper rifle bullets whizzed by my head from the very end of the road, flinging the bodies out of the tunnel.

At the end, we should be thanking you and Huskii, you two made everything happen. Those were one of my finest memories of FL; wearing that navy blue suit, kevlar underneath, armed to the teeth, standing in the lobby and listening to your and Huskii's instructions for that day's job. I'm truly thankful that I was a part of it.

And, like always...
Nam periculum in ea sunt in mare
