The ThunderWalkers name originated from a Quake 1 capture the flag modification created by Marc "Panda o' Fire" Rittierodt and Robert "Fezzik" Hayden.
After the glory days of Quake World, some of our founding members ventured into the MMO Genre, actively playing games such as Ultima Online, and participating in the Everquest beta.
At the time we couldn't decide on a guild name, so we decided to name ourselves after something we all had in common "ThunderWalkers" seemed like the most logical choice.
ThunderWalkers actively played on the Morrel Thule server during Everquest. As one of the leading raid guilds throughout the Planes of Power expansion. Many of which refer to as the "the glory days of EQ". Because of our success we were later one of the original guilds invited to participate in the Dark Ages of Camelot beta.
After a hiatus from raiding, many of our veteran players focused on life outside raiding, some even saw daylight again and got tans. Chinese and Pizza delivery services took a huge financial hit. Daris went on to have two kids with some evil german woman that now takes half his paycheck in child support. Because of this, he now prefers men.
Our members later resurfaced in World of Warcraft , a few of us began actively raiding again under the guild named "Reason" on Kael 'Thas US. Notably leading content against a guild named"Fusion" that would later server transfer off the server onto Turalyon and become top ranked US guild during the Burning Crusades Expansion. As things began to fizzle out on Kael ' Thas , a few of us decided the time was right to "get the old band back together" for a run at the upcoming Burning Crusades and WoTLK expansions. At the time many of our old EQ members were spread out amongst various World of Warcraft servers and Blizzard had recently introduced the server transfer service. The time was right and we moved forward. In a matter of days we formed a 25 man raid guild on Drak'Thul and the rest is history.
Once again we enjoyed great success as a guild, capturing Realm First Titles and re-igniting our passion for glory, we acquired new members and lasting friendships that exist to this day.
Going into 2014, we're looking forward to the next generation MMORPG Sandbox EQ NEXT. We hope that you will join us.
