AncientElements Spotlight

AncientElements, though not the strongest, meanest, richest or largest pledge on Depardieu, is definitely one of the most ancient. When I say ancient, I am not talking about their name, but rather the fact that the pledge is two years old and kicking—still with some of their first members!

FaIlingStar has been playing for two years now, ever since her boyfriend (now husband) B1ackShadow introduced her to the game. She started as a princess, her first pledgie being Nevyn3 who is still an active member.

The pledge is supposed to be 45+, and actively recruits that level, though in B1ackShadow’s words “Star is just too nice…she lets level 5s in!” But perhaps instead of being a weakness this is a strength, because FaIlingStar attracts some of the most loyal members this side of Aden.

The pledge goes on daily pledge hunts to various locations with members ranging from 20 to 45+. They also sport an excellent help-a-newbie program. “(We’ve) made so many bonesets, lol” FaIlingStar remarked, obviously remembering hours of trotting around SKT with various components.

They have many allies (DragonsOfMight, BloodedRose, ReignOfArrows) and no enemies came to mind when I asked Star about them. They try to keep fights away from the pledge, enjoying a multicultural chat as long as there are no rude comments.

    A few pledge stats for you:
  • Best Knight- B1ackShadow, 49+
  • Best Mage- Nevyn3
  • Best Elf- KILL4FUN or Bilbow, 47+
  • Best weapon- KILL4FUN or Bilbow, +7 yumi.

If you are interested in commenting FaIling, whether for a nice chat or to join their pledge you can message her or B1ackShadow in game or email them at

are you sure it wasn't a pumpkin toss because thats what pumpkin costumes are called :) If they did try to scam you though, I'm sure FaIlingstar would like to know.

Foo...we have a number of +7 Yumi in our pledge. ^^ I had a problem with an AE member a long while back and found FaIlingStar to be an extremely receptive leader...not to mention very sweet. They keep a low profile. Just goes to show you don't have to be the most known to have a good pledge and a lot of fun.

Embargo is something I wouldnt think was in that pledge no, hes nothing but a nuisance.

lol I remember I always thought the princess was name FailingStar, not FallingStar, couldnt quite figure out why anyone would be named anything with failure, so kinda guessed it`d have to be Falling... :)

Um hey Doyor this is B1ackShadow I was only in your pledge a little I was in Elements before even yours and my first pledge was in Elcaudillos pledge then Elements then Amilkars pledge then Gruwelda then back to Elements...
I switch back and forth between elements alot even while in those pledges. ^^.
In a way I created the elements cause i got Falling to start playing
o and one more thing Failingstar is the original Fallingstar we had so many accounts in beta (they were free) that we lost track of which ones the original blackshadow and fallingstar were on. Its been so long we dun even remember the acc names or passwords... so we got stuck with cheap thnx for the spotlight and great comments glad to see ppl like us ^^
O BTW our website is check it out its always changing so stop by often.

FallingStar started playing in April 2000 so does that make pledge 2 years or 3 years old? I started November 1999... hard to think too late right now heh
