Aries was the one that start Fatal Shadows more than 12 years ago.
So, considering the news go back as far as 1997 (9 years), the pirate squad already had existed for 3 years then?
Kurse recruits him as an ensign in his Pirate unit - the Fatal Shadows, the oldest organization on the RIM XvT League
Being that the RIM was over a decade and a half ago wow it has been a long time. Guess that would make me the
11 years agoHey
This may help you out with your history project. This gives updates between 9/97 until September of 2002 for the US Fatal Shadows.
Yeah thanks Thermal mate, already included it in the first draft:
11 years ago*S*
Sorry about the previous short reply. I was Grand Admiral of the Fatal Shadows (US) between 10-31-99 until 4-1-2001. I served under Kelennar who was GA between 9-19-97 until 10-31-99. I do know that Fatal Shadows existed for a few months before Kelannar started recording the US history in that link I posted before and like Falcon stated, was started by Aries. Unfortunately I have no knowledge of how to get in contact with Kelannar and last email address I have of Aries is [mailto].
You can also find a wealth of old homepage info at fatalshadows.freeservers.com/FS/ which has alot of old homepage code and some information For instance here is some newsletters that are still posted there: [link]
I will be happy to answer any questions you may have for myself as serving as GA or my time serving under Kelannar. I *may* still have meeting transcripts of my time serving as GA and some under Kelannar if that would be helpful in determing weekly or monthly progression of the squad. I noticed somewhere you had questions to what games that were played and abbrevations and here they are in order (I hope)
XVT = Xwing Versus Tie Fighter
XWA= Xwing Allegiance
JK = Jedi Knight
AG = Allegiance
JG = Jumpgate
I also played in SWG= Star Wars Galaxies, and GW = Guildwars but it was under another guild I started that I am also retired from which us Liberty Alliance, located at [link].
So thats a very small and short history of my FS life and If I can be of any help let me know.
BTW I reviewed your Wikepedia files as for Mech3 and Tribes 2 and Castle Wolfenstein, I believe we tried them all but as a big gaming platform for US, they didnt exactly take off as far as members go. In any case, good info there and good luck with the project.

This ain't dead yet ladies, gentlemen. I plan on writing the next part next weekend, but I have to visit a few apartments cause I gotta move end of the month, which is coming closer at an immense speed, somehow. Time sucks. When you don't have it.
9 years agoIf there’s such thing as an Original Founder of the Fatal Shadows, I guess that would be me. My name may have been forgotten over time, but I am Cadmus. Aries and I originally founded FS in 1995. It was in September 1997 that we went “international” with FS with XvT on the Rim. From there, the Fatal Shadows has obviously grown into a pretty impressive empire well after I ceased being involved.
