But in the years since then, we have witnessed the rise of an incredible community, one made up of a close-knit but very welcoming group of members, passionate about improving the the clan, making it flourish. This is exactly what has occurred. Yesterday was our official three year anniversary as a clan. Now that it is June 17th, we can officially say that we have been around for over three years, regardless of timezone.
I am writing this because I wanted to take the time to reflect and look back, and if nothing else, pause for a moment and acknowledge just how far we have come. Subsistence started as a group of about fifteen people that were willing to start afresh. I took a lot of flak from some of the die-hard members of The Runite Legion for being a powerhungry prick, just wanting to be in charge. Those that know the full story know that I was banned and told to start my own clan. That is what I did. I did not know what to expect.
Since then, I have had the pleasure of leading a community that has grown far past anything I could have ever imagined. We have been in the sights of thousands of people from all around the world, our website has received over a million views, our in-game clan is larger than 99.8% of all clans in existence, and most importantly, we have done all of this because Subsistence is a place where people can truly enjoy themselves.
I want to thank everyone who has been part of Subsistence and has helped it get to what it is today. This community would be nothing without the people that it is comprised of. I truly am happy to be involved in something so profound. And let it be known that we aren't going anywhere. As our in-game motto says, from the ashes, we rise. That is exactly the story of Subsistence, and today, our fire is glowing as bright as ever. We already have a few things planned that I am excitedly looking forward to releasing. I am looking forward to see what else the future holds for us.
