First of all, for those that don't recognize me, I'm Cornflower and I started this PW way back in the dawn of time, more or less as a rehab-project after a major burn-out. Initial building took about 600 hours and I don't even want to think about how many more hours I spent on admin, building, rebuilding, etc, etc.

Second, I'm not back in any official capacity, I just heard that Glorwing was restarting and promptly fell off of my chair... Then I checked out the forums to see if it was true. And it was! I'm totally amazed, but not that surprised actually. Considering the level of commitment and creativity shown by both players and staff, one can expect almost everything to happen...

Third, I heartily endorse and applaud the initiative shown by you all. Kudos and congratulations! As always, a special thank you to Erik/Kevin, whose good deeds are far too many to mention here.

Now, that being said, I'll withdraw to my suburban existense with pride and happiness at seeing the Glorwing Community active again.

I won't be reading any PM:s and stuff, so don't expect to see me around much. With one wife, two kids, three dogs and four vehicles, I'm too busy. Still, I wish you all the best!

With joyous, sentimental and somewhat mushy regards,
Corny

Thank you Corny / Marcus for your thoughts and support.

Over the years I collaborated with Corny and even following his 'retirement' from active duty I appreciated the support and supported the foundation upon which Glorwing was based. Glorwing is based on community involvement, rewards members for constructively contributing, yet never takes itself too seriously.

After experiencing other projects and worlds it became increasingly clear that this was a unique situation and the only obvious choice was to resurrect the community and carry on the legacy. I have stressed community for that is what it is. While Corny and I have had a major influence on Glorwing it would be nothing without it's community of dedicated staff and players...

It is to those community members that I humbly give praise and my gratitude alongside Corny for his trust in me as the 'keeper of the flame' so to speak.

Thank you all - and long live Glorwing!

Erik

Yeah you know this was the first place I played, and since it is back it may be the last place I play. But it has to be the greatest bunch of folks I have ever met in my life. You did a great job Corny. Thanks again to Erik for getting it done. Last night was the only time I sent a pm to an admin about anything. I mean while they were in game. I just wanted to tell a feller thanks. But man the people, I kept in touch with some, fell out of touch with others. But it was great to see so many of you. Thanks folks for making it all possible.

I am glad the happy news reached you, Corny.
After all we all would not be here without either you and Erik.
Glorwing is a unique place and as sweetleef said, most likely the first and last place for me to play online.
After all it is also all the hundreds of hours we all spent here playing, plotting and having fun that make Glorwing what it is.
I can only second the heartfelt thanks to everyone.

Glorwing was also my first dip into the Roleplaying world of NWN! This was a great start for me and I'm uber excited to see it back! Thanks to Erik and thank you Cornflower for creating such a unique and welcoming world that I hope will live on for years to come!
