The LJ Clan: Not so different.
The history of: The Last of the Jedi
= Just another Clan.
A long time ago (a little over 2 years), in a galaxy far far away (Northern Canada), a new clan was born. The Last of the Jedi (or LJ) would influence the community forever. Wrong.
LJ began as a strange attempt to start another clan in the Jazz 2 community, despite the fact that there were already too many to keep track of. The idea came from a strange young boy with a squeaky voice who thought he was an expert Jazz 2 player, even though he couldn’t beat anybody in CTF. He worked with his friend, Quod-ex, who was a little better than Quo. Quo-Avek decided that the clan had to be “Different” and so strove to do the impossible; make an original clan.
Quo declared that the clan was “Not so much a clan, as a group of friends that play JJ2 toghether”. It was easy to say when there were only two members, but that phrase has held through the entire 2 years LJ has been around.
After a week or so, Quo~Avek decided the clan should have a website. He wisely asked DrJones to help him, as Quo’s HTML knowledge was very poor(an overstatement). Together they created a website which would rarely be updated in the years to come (at the time this article was written, the last update was 2 months short of 2 years ago…). After this step the clan took on a new member: Kazooie, who has remained faithfull to the clan ever since.
Weeks passed, and the Saturday and wednessday games continued. The next member to arive was Shorty, the first girl to join the clan (she joined the day she turned 14). Now, at 4 members, Quo-Avek felt warm and fuzzy for being (as he thought) the perfect clan leader of the perfect clan. Then, Need for Speed 4 came along.
Quo~Avek got caught up in racing games, and began playing Jazz 2 less. The clan games slowed then stopped, and all website updates were forgotten. The Clan’s future lay on a knife’s edge. This continued for over a year. Shorty and Kazooie held in while Quo nearly forgot Jazz 2. Then, finally, Need For Speed 4 became boring, and Quo-Avek made a comeback…
The next two months were spent getting back into Jazz 2, Re-making the website (ljclan.d2g.com), organizing the clan games, and trying to “Keep up the Jazzin”. Now, the Webite is half finished, and a clan game was recently hosted. FodLJ joined, and helped organize games, and now progress is continueing. New members are seeking to join, and LJ may live on. LJ is also striving to be one of the Longest-living clans around, though it could still be a while…
At this point, Quo~Avek promised himself that he’d never abandon the clan again, but then, he saw that LEGO Racers 2 had come out…
The point of this J2O article? To clog up the server, and waste screen space. It’s also a cheap attempt to advertise a cheap clan whose history has remained on a knifes edge. Fortunately, the knife was blunt.
Keep up the Jazzin!
