First-generation clans:

 

The Synergy was an exodus of WG formed by Eragon CD in April 2004. Synergy drew several members from WG who were unhappy with the leadership[2], and in two weeks were half as strong as WG. Despite attempts at negotiations, a fight initiated and the clans became enemies.

Eragon and His Lordship eventually worked out a peace treaty and even an alliance.[3] Synergy also took part in WG's first anniversary.

In late 2004/early 2005, several exodi broke off from Synergy as a result of internal leadership issues, including Sleeping Dragons and Death Jesters.[4] The clan survived, and helped restart the Federation in mid-2005. WG retained it's alliance with Synergy after leaving the Federation.

It is unknown when the alliance was concluded, however Synergy continued steadily up until mid-2008, closing due to the removal of PvP elements in RuneScape.[5]

The Synergy had a junior clan known as The Synergizers, several members of which joined Valeria Victrix.[1]

 

The Revolution was the second exodus of WG, formed by Noricle and Rick Hamm after an anti-American rant was posted publicly by His Lordship. Within two weeks, TR had taken over 40 members from WG, and had the sole intention of killing WG.

TR established themselves as a stable ARPKing clan, with some of the highest ranking players in the game. Negotiations were attempted in mid-March of 2005, but failed and the two clans remained hostile.

On March 22nd and without much warning, TR suddenly disbanded for unknown reasons. Rick Hamm returned to WG.

 

Neverending Torment - The second exodus of WG to be led by Rick Hamm, and founded mainly by ex-WG. The clan's focus was more on friendship and community rather than in-game strength. NT is not mentioned in WG's history, and seemingly had very little success, though is known to have closed and re-opened at least once.[1]

 

Assassins of Shadow - an exodus formed by ex-WG member Ubg-fcbruges in late 2008, and featuring several other ex-members. Despite having a relatively good setup, the clan saw little success and survived for only a few months, closing on October 29th 2008.

 

The Blade Keepers was a clan formed in February 2011 by Vio, following his departure from WG after a suspension. Within 2 months the clan outnumbered WG, and members included former WG warlord WG Justin.[12]

Initially on peaceful terms, a few disgruntled WG decided to hunt TBK on a PKing trip, resulting in a rivalry.[13] Hostilities continued for several months, with WG generally having the upper hand until an alliance was formed between TBK and Team Power Rangers which evened the odds.[14]

In April 2011, a range of issues casued TBK to split with two exodi breaking out from it.[15] Despite a peace treaty being negotiated with WG, after a month the clan had not managed to recover and the decision to close was made on May 4th 2011.[16] Members were referred onto former Warlord Vindicator's clan Exalt, while Vio joined Ascension and later rejoined WG.[17]

 

Oak Island Pirates - founded in 2006 by Oak Island, a former leader of DG. Despite heavy criticism and early hostilities, OIP is the only surviving relative of WG at the present time.[1]

I gave lots of support to OIP and SD during my time in The Sabres. They were nice communities but had little to no PKing presence. One or two of them would join my PK trips from time to time.

After seeing Vio's comment saying OIP is still alive I decided to check it out and they actually are 😮

I remember fighting Raining Chaos when I was in TS as well. Had a video for it too, but sadly I think it's lost to history :(

So glad we have folks like you Vio who have recorded so much history.

 

I remember Rick Hamm well.  He and I did not get along.  At first I respected the hell out of him but he had this conceited ego that he was better than everyone else simply because he was a full-fledged adult playing a game with a bunch of teenagers.  I truly despised that man and I'm glad his clans failed.  No idea why he was given so many chances.

 

BTW- Axe Man Jack.. didn't he also try to create a breakaway clan around the same time ish?
