Kyek IconMeaning of Leader

I got on Dofus last night expecting to feed my cats and kill a few of those bothersome crocodiles, and all of the sudden people are /g’ing things about me being a leader. What? So I check the roster, and sure enough, daLamb/Jason was on about 10 minutes before me and flipped over the position. I knew he had talked about it before, but I completely didn’t expect it to just *happen*!

Regardless, I’m very flattered and accept the position. My concern is SEs taking this the wrong way, though. My moving to leader changes nothing in how this guild is run, the huge upward swing it’s already headed into — none of that. Our group has a great dynamic, and the officer/keeper core within it is stronger now more than ever. I will continue to serve in an officer position, because that *works* for us.

What does being titled “Leader” mean, then? SE has already grown to know that it’s not who the leader is, it’s how the guild functions — and I’ve already said I’m not changing that. But the rest of Dofus, all the other guilds, the informed crowd at AS, etc., are used to putting all their faith in a Leader. So, for the outside world, I’m simply a contact point, a figurehead, and a representation. As I seem to have a pretty good reputation in-game and at AS, I hope this can come to benefit us.

As a guild full of members quickly shooting up in level, though, you don’t deserve a guild leader who is merely level 66. My first goal as Leader is to get my level up so that others who *do* judge by the Leader sees SE as very strong. Secondly, I’d love to continue with our upswing and I believe AS is the way to do that. My next goal will be finally polishing off this site, especially the section for recruitments and guild information, so that I can help to recruit more high-leveled players from AS by referring them there. SE is stronger than ever and, like any guild that doesn’t want to disappear, is always in need of new membership. I, and I’m sure many of you, would like to see the levels on new members soar above our minimum of 50.

And so I’ll end my speech, and hope for your support. SE is and always will be a laid-back, fun place to be, free of dictator reign :). The Leader, for us, is just a representative. And being daLamb’s selected representative for SE, I won’t let you down. :)
