Pledge Spotlight: Eden

MERICA’s pledge Eden (not to be confused with the garden) is a mixing pot of levels and relations. They have a mother and son and a father and son (her boyfriend). They have people who are 48+ and people who are just gaining their titles. They have people from Spain, Canada, Alaska, San Antonio, Texas…sounds like a Disney ride, eh? So how is it that such a mixed and different group, made up of children and grandparents, those pushing fifty (and I’m not talking level) and those still in grade school can function as a good and not to mention full pledge?

Nightly pledge hunts in Fire Valley, Dragon Valley, the Wasteland and the Desert help pledge bonding a bit. “The [pledge] members look forward to being together,” MERICA comments. They trust each other not only in the hunt but in the inventory as well, sharing enough items that their storage dwarf could be quite a good hunter if he could equip all of their pledge storage items!

Besides from pledge hunts, the pledgies set up their own meetings, the stronger members helping the weaker, taking them to better hunting spots and keeping them alive. For a pledge that has only been around since September, this is quite an accomplishment!

The really important thing about Eden is not that its mentioned in the bible, not that their leaders share tender moments at out-of-the-way cafes as well as sieges, not that they are willing to let others use what they don’t, at that moment, need. It’s the fact that they are such different people and yet such good friends. Perhaps all of Lineage could learn a little something from the utopia Eden creates…it is, in all truth, the pledge of paradise, even if it doesn’t have a tree of all knowledge and talking snakes.

Vulg, the purpose of that was to show people that there IS some honesty left in Aden.
Ancient, I am sure MERICA is much more careful then you seem to think ;)

I am a member of Eden and very much want to thank all my friends not only in Eden but in Lineage. It is strange that, even though we do not all actually know each other, there is somehow a bond between one another. Even between countries and nationalities. I do have friends here. Thanks!!!

I am also a member of Eden and I would like to mention a few more things. It took me a long time to join a pledge, 47 levels long, but when i did, i dont think i could have picked a better pledge to grow in than Eden! No, we don't have any super high level members, however that just makes all of us feel stronger. We are all growing together, and very soon we will have several elves and knights all crossing into lvl 49 territory! I couldn't be happier with the pledge i've joined, and I'll stay with them until my lineage days are done...which could be a long long time!

yeah.....50 eden pledge members later in the post...i'm another eden member...i can't say i've never thought of leaving eden for a "stronger" pledge but then we have one of those nights where we have one of those convos where you're falling off your chair laughing and making others laugh as well and i realize how much i truly love this pledge...only in eden can you be poking fun at somebody one minute (with them laughing as well of course ^^) and then the next minute you might be having a conversation about cars or about favorite foods or women or whatever else might come to mind...we're truly a diverse group though and if there's not a "lol" atleast every 3-5 minutes on our pledgechat then most likely nobody is talking...eden might not have the strongest chars or the best items amongst us but to me we're the best pledge on lineage because of our unique atmosphere

Okay, I admit, I am one of those family members whose son has me hooked on this game. I was crazy enough to let him download lineage on my computer, got on, and met the greatest group of people. It is unlikely that ANY newbie would ever struggle learning the game, as a member of Eden Pledge. Now at lvl 37, i'm gaining momentum, but better yet, I've gained comaraderie!!!

Thanks to all the "elders" of the game, merica, uptake, dcwalker, requa, obee, jasim~~you know who you all are. Pledge would not be who they are without them--and as far as Mildu---"He's Back!!" Yipee for me!!! 0~0.

This is what a pledge is supposed to be about. Playing the game, having fun, making friends. Too bad they will probably not have a castle as long as there are cheaters that power level by account sharing for USD who trade castles. But this pledge seems to care not, they are just here to have fun and do the best they can.
