Three hundred sixty-two score and ten posts ago our fathers brought forth on this forum, a new thread, conceived in Infamy, and dedicated to the proposition that all Duelyst memes are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that thread, or any thread so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their likes that that thread might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate – we can not consecrate – we can not hallow – this thread. The brave memers, active and gone, that struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the players, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us – that from these honored memes we take increased devotion to that cause for which the creators gave the last full measure of devotion – that we here highly resolve that these posts shall not have diverged in vain – that this thread, under RNGod, shall have a new birth of meme-dom – and that sarcasm of the players, by the players, for the players, shall not perish from the forum.
