Sinister Swarm (multi-gaming)
The Sinister Swarm is a multi-platform gaming community designed for building lasting friendships in a fun, mature, organized environment. According to their history page, they originally started in Team Fortress Classic in 1999 under the name of the SLAYER clan with the likes of Terminator, Viper, Wolfie, Venom,and many others who played a key part in the beginnings of the community that exists today. They became known for their Dust Bowl league play, and had countless hours dedicated to mastering that map.
In 2000, Viper & Venom started playing Everquest and tried joining several different guilds. However, they never found any guild that could live up to their expectations. They looked for organization, structure, group activities, maturity, strong leadership, and some level of camaraderie. Yet they found nothing that even came close. So, they began to list all the things that they would do differently if they were the ones running the guild. Soon they had everything planned out in great detail, and gave birth to the Sinister Swarm Everquest chapter!They looked for a name fitting the group:
And then Swarm… a swarm is not viewed as any single entity or individual. It consists of a vast number of moving parts all working together in perfect synchronization to accomplish their goal. There is no pride or ego in a swarm. Each member works towards the greater good and betterment of the swarm as a whole. Each member of the unit is willing to sacrifice themselves for the swarm without hesitation. As such, their colors and ranks were also generated from this theme. So black and gold were an obvious choice.
