Top of the evening to you all.
It has come to my attention that Dpd2000, the man, the myth, the pear who revived this army from the ruins of its former self, has retired. And it is thus that I take great pride in paying tribute to his legacy, short as it was. It is my honour and privilege to award him with the highest honour in the Global Defenders:
The Medal of Honour
Dpd2000 won the rights to recreate the Global Defenders in an xat billiards wager, in which I lost. A gentleman always honours his wagers, and, being a gentleman (at least I hope), I came through and allowed him to recreate GD. I was hesitant, at first, as I was afraid that he would fail in reviving GD, just as Jack had several months prior. However, within the next few weeks, Dpd had all but assuaged my fears. At the height of his reign, which was, sadly, right before his retirement, GD was doing better than it ever had, even under my own rule. It is thus that I am proud to present this Medal of Honour to Dpd2000 for his dedication, skill, and Presidential prowess. Dpd, I salute you, from one President to another. May you achieve great success in your future endeavours. Thank you for your service.
