Founding Date: Unknown (July 2004? – Read quote just below)
Founding Members: Polixo, Xwifebeaterx, Evil Tony, Mc Creed, a few others…
EoS was formed out of Dissatisfied ZF members as an Anti-ZF clan. It’s original purpose was to take down ZF. A quote from old ZF history:
Chapter 18: The ZF Walkout Clan, AKA Echo Of Silence (July 2004)
Burnttoast65 and XwifebeaterX both had Channel Operator on the mIRC Chatroom of Zeonic Force. There were many complaints about these two members abusing their power. Lord Death then decided to remove them from having Op status in the mIRC Chatroom. XwifebeaterX and Burnttoast65 weren’t too happy because of this and decided to leave Zeonic Force and create their own clan called Echo of Silence (EoS). Two other Zeonic Force members called Mc Creed and Polixo decided to follow them and create this so called Zeonic Force walkout clan. Those four current Zeonic Force members even asked ZF’s current members to join EoS, but most of them said no. After a while, XwifebeaterX decided to make peace with Zeonic Force, contacting one of the High Council leaders of ZF.
This same day, Zeonic Force was having an event called “Survival”. They were having a good time until EoS came under Polixo’s instruction to crash this fun event. This truly ruined the peace XwifebeaterX offered Zeonic Force. Clan PK Trips started getting crashed with EoS getting demolished every time. Not long after all this, EoS had lost some of their leaders due to power abuse and other clan issues they had, until they were no more.
1st Era, What Goes Up Must Fall: In this Era EoS was a very strong, fresh upstart clan. It reached top 20 quickly and constantly fought ZF in the wild. ZF at that time was top 15 with 150+ members and 85+ hp average so they easily outclassed EoS. EoS members, rushed together so quickly, soon began arguing with each other and the flaming slowly brought EoS to it’s knees. Polixo left EoS for EoH at this point, and EoS lost many good members with him. At this time EoS was Allied with Anarchy and TDL.
Notable 1st Era Members Currently member or friend of EoS: Mc Creed, Evil Tony, D E I N O, Broken1, Master Semir, Pyrokid69, Master 4, U Gowin Down, Jrd3478, Andy4309, a few others…
2nd Era, Dark Ages: In this Era EoS was severely weakened by the loss of Polixo and many leading members. Xwifebeaterx was the leader with Sony R and Xx Ghetto Xx as Co-Leaders. This period is the ‘Dark Age’ of EoS. Xwifebeaterx, inactive because of RL responsibilites, left the clan to Sony R and Xx Ghetto Xx. The two Co-Leaders constantly disagreed and it led to a civil war in which Xx Ghetto Xx deleted the EoS forums and took over the MIRC chatroom. EoS at that point was dead. Most members took the forums Deletion as the clan being gone and joined other clans. All of EoS’ Allies, believing EoS dead, dropped alliances.
3rd Era, Re-Birth of a Clan: After the deletion of the EoS forums by Xx Ghetto Xx, Sony R made us new forums hosted by a friend of his, Shawn(sp?). We had our own .tk and things were looking well. At this time Sony R and Broken1 were both Leaders in EoS and they begun with the rebuilding of this great clan. Sony R became a clan friend after everything was running under Broken1’s command, and joined ZF. Everything was running smoothly and EoS was gaining members steadily with it’s 65+ hp requirement. In this time EoS allied with RR, DR, Anarchy, and RB.
4th Era, The Merge: Rigmar Drake, Allied Leader of ReBirth, posted on EoS forums saying he was considering shutting down RB. Broken1 suggested a merger and it was agreed upon. A few days later EoS gained a good portion of RB and Rigmar Drake became a Co-Leader. Sony R’s friend that was providing us free hosting dropped us and we were forced to move forums at this time. At this point spam became uncontrollable on the new forums. Broken1, unused to leadership, saw no problem with this. Rigmar Drake was soley fighting a losing battle against spam on the forums and gained a lot of enemies. At this time contentions started between the new members gained from the merge and the older EoS members. Rigmar Drake was Bs’d be some older EoS members and Broken1 also demoted him to regular council because of the contentions between him and EoS members. Rigmar Drake held intentions at this time to destroy EoS. Mr Nickos Jr, a member gained from the merger and one in the confidence of Rigmar Drake, clued Broken1 and EoS in on Rigmar Drake’s intentions by posting an MSN convo on the forums. Broken1 then removed Rigmar Drake from the clan. Rigmar Drake, being wronged by EoS as a whole, vowed to destroy EoS and remade ReBirth. TDL then split off into several clans, with most of their best players joining DE. EoS then allied DE. Alliances at this time were DR, DE, and RR with Anarchy having dropped alliances with EoS.
5th Era, Self Sufficiency: Broken1 went on vacation at this time to visit relatives and left the clan in the controll of Lady Willow, Mr Nickos Jr, U Gowin Down, and Master Semir. With Rigmar Drake’s intentions of destroying EoS this could not have come at a worse time. Luckily for EoS, Rigmar Drake fought mainly a cold war with EoS and eventually made peace with EoS. During this time EoS did a lot of fighting with MK, Anarchy, and EoH in the wild. EoS teamed with TDL and a few other clans constantly to kill Anarchy. Jrd3478 kept EoS wildy active and EoS grew slowly but steadily in the absence of their leadership. After Broken1 returned forums were switched to do a major inactive sweep. Alliances at this time were DR, RR, and DE.
6th Era, Growth: In this Era EoS was gaining new members at a steady rate, with many requirement raises. KoD attempted an alliance, was defeated in a fun war, and the alliance was declined. EoS then Allied with GoW who died soon after. EoS began to have constant 20+ people on pk trips and their fame grew. EoS began their Democracy at this point and began the elections of their council. During this Era EoS attended and was decisive in winning the RD vs LL allied war (Fall, 2004) that became a mass war with most every clan in RS. Alliances at this time were RR, DR, GoW, and DE.
7th Era, The Rise To Fame: In this Era EoS started miniwarring and defeating many clans. Miniwar wins such as EoS vs TMRD, EoS vs DL and EoS vs CoR Secured EoS a position in the top 20 once again. Corruption, Gladz, TMRD, DL and several other top ranked clans made themselves enemies of EoS. Many great battles and clashes of power ensued – with EoS winning the majority. EoS + DR warred Anarchy (Spring, 2005) at this point. Both teams got max options but Anarchy prevailed. Pk trips began reaching 30 people. ReBirth leader, Rigmar Drake, tired of the weight of leadership, chose EoS as his new home. Many ReBirth members followed him and made their new home with EoS. DL shut down and several of their members joined EoS as well. EoS warred TDL (Summer of 2005) at this point in history and decimated them with less than 10 people lost. Alliances at this time were RR, DR, and DE.
Sometime around here RB disbanded again, and though did not officially merge about 30-40 of their members came to EoS including RB’s leaders Rigmar Drake and Bobtheagent. There were minor internal issues, though none that perpetuated a split again.
War: Summer, 2005: EoS vs LC. 2 week prep. EoS got 75, LC got 75. LC won with 20 left.
LC died shortly after. Eos got word that they would be disbanding after the war beforehand.
8th Era, The Perfect Storm: Broken1 goes absent due to RL constraints. Upon his return (after a month+), Rigmar drake remakes RB. This time only a handful of people left Eos for RB, the majority stayed with Eos. Eos does a forum switch and wars CL.
War: Fall, 2005: EoS vs CL. 1 week prep. EoS got 65, CL got 75. EoS wins with 40 left.
Broken1 then, due to the hurricane in Florida, loses all ability to go online or lead the clan. Mr Nickos Jr assumes leading responsibilities with Jrd3478 and Lady Willow. During this time we have many mini wars, one of which that is most note-able is the following:
Mini War: Winter, 2005: EoS vs TDL + AD. 1 day prep. EoS got 55, TDL+AD got 80. EoS wins with 30 left.
It is this mini war, where the opposing team had proof of returners (TDL’s side), that possibly helped Eos the most. Eos got recognized for it’s great organization around this time. Also, note’able members from AD joined Eos when they closed (few month/s later) such as Flinstoneman (Current High Council), Kvn Pfc (Current Webmaster) and Big Parrot (Current Advisor). It was a good time in Eos, members were very confident and having a great time.
Not long after, Mr Nickos Jr decided to declare on Wg despite the concerns from other leaders in Eos. The numbers on paper showed Wg with twice our numbers, their previous war thy had 140 people show up (for a 2 week prep).
War: Winter, 2005: EoS vs WG. 6 day prep. EoS got 75, WG got 110. EoS wins with 35 left. This war was one of the best and most satisfying wars in Eos history. Us losing 40 people, and killing 110!
We continued to do well, became very popular for our organization with good reason, and kept PKing strongly with weekly fights with Wg+Fear+allies against the prominant DEoS (DE+EoS) which was a strong and active alliance during this time.
In January, TF had a war planned with another clan, but the opponent backed out. Therefore TF offered EoS war since they had already had a weeks prep vs Eos’ none. War was accepted. Eos expected TF to get over 150 people to this war. TF showing was disappointing, Eos’ was a surprise and a sign to the community as to Eos’ rise. War: January, 2006: EoS vs TF. 10 day prep. EoS got 93, TF got 105. EoS wins with 75 left. Eos won that war easily.
For 2 months, Eos mostly mini warred clans. Such as Df, Awaken, Fear, Valor, etc. Alliance with Dr was broken due to inactivity and distancing.
In March, Mr Nickos Jr retired from RS and from EoS. Broken1 followed suit, being held down by RL obligations and time restraints, and put himself as inactive / retired. Plans were to shut Eos down, but Jrd3478 wanted to step up and assume leadership, thus was granted leadership. With the leaving of Broken1 and myself, many note-able members felt no obligation to stay and help out the clan (since the leader quit, so can they?), therefore Eos lost many members in a short amount of time.
9th Era, A New Beginning: Eos currently is planning a forum switch, and a new beginning. A forum much like that during our high days. Things are looking stable, and it shouldn’t be long until we are making more noise in the community once again.
Current Leadership in EoS:
High Council: Punkhazard, Flinstoneman, Lady Willow
Council: Jr Knight Jr, Kallmeray, Mariomaniac0, Prannoy, U Gowin Down, Weird Hobo, D e i n o
Advisors: Big Parrot, Bkluge, Joker316, Kidiley, Master 4
Webmaster: Kvn Pfc
Jrd3478 becomes inactive due to Rl issues. Prannoy steps up as a renewed Council member and plans several miniwars and pk trip crashes over several weeks. EoS can’t be stopped. Then, a chain reaction of bad events hurts EoS.
Inner Clan issues cause Flinstoneman to leave EoS. Punkhazard leaves EoS and joins Corruption. Jrd3478 goes on a week vacation, during which time Prannoy and Weird Hobo make another clan (Insurrection) because of the clan’s split view on EoS p2p reputation and a mass leaving ensues, bringing EoS down to about 55 Members.
Cheezy1989, Polixo (recently returned to EoS), and Astroline were appointed to temporary Council to hold EoS together until Jrd3478 returned from vacation. Jrd3478 returns and a new Council Election is held. Cheezy1989, Polixo, and Astroline all get Council. About two weeks after the clan split, Insurrection closes and Mr Nickos Jr returns to a leadership position, now co-leader with Jrd3478 and Lady Willow. Another forum switch is done, back to echoedsilence.com.
After about two more weeks, Prannoy comes back to EoS and makes his amends (recieves Council later on). With Mr Nickos Jr back as a leader, things for EoS start looking up again. Old School Members come back, who had left when Mr Nickos Jr and Broken1 had left. But again, in about a month, Lo12d Jess and most of the EoS Mage Bank Pking team leave to make a No Honor clan (Infamous Pkers), who quickly become one of the top p2p based clans on RS. EoS is down to about 55 members again, but is now left with the core members. Currently, there is no inner-clan problems at all, and EoS is a community of friends. EoS lowers its requirements to 102+ combat, and begins its growth back up to full strength.
War: November 4, 2006: 1-Week prep with Knights of Honor. EoS pulls 102 options and KO pulls 120 options. EoS wins with 30 options left. This was shows that EoS is still a force to be reckoned with, even though we only had about 60 members.
10th Era, A Rivalry Turns Dirty: EoS slowly becomes a stronger and a more dominant PKing clan despite an approximate 65 person memberlist. During this time EoS claims victories over prominent clans such as TMRD, Exercitum, and RDC. April 15, EoS arranges a PKRI with TMRD, EoS pulls 144 opts to TMRDs 160+. EoS soon wins a hard fought battle ending with 117 opts. As confidence and ability grow in EoS clans such as Exer and RDC take notice and begin to flame EoS, questioning their honor and capabilities. Combined with this constant flaming of EoS by Exer and RDC, Exer members hack EoS’ forums; thus birthing a new rivalry. Exer claimed to be a top 5 clan in PKRIs but their claims were never supported by Run-In results. EoS begins to fight Exer, indisputably winning every fight. Soon Exer tires of losing to a clan they claim to be superior than, and begin to enlist the help of their friends in RDC. Nonetheless, EoS continued to emerge the victors even defeating Exer + RDC at once. Soon, with EoS hunting them every week, Exer weakens significantly and decides to “refresh” their clan by kicking everyone and closing for the better part of a week, as a result of EoS destroying their “outmasphere”; Exer soon reopens but not returning to their former glory. EoS gets a major boost out of discovering their ability to be so powerful as to force a former top clan to close and this thrusts them into a secure position in the top 10 and reestablished their intimidating reputation as a top PK clan.

Leader: Mr Nickos Jr
High Council: Bb Blukiller, Mariomaniac0, Cheezy1989, and Goku1208
Council: Revilo143, Luckyninja, Bunga321, and Chris1234128
Advisor: Baked Goods5
Warlords: Jr Knight Jr, Boomerdabomb, and Prannoy
11th Era, A new rivalry with an old friend: EoS start getting more members and have an official war with AG, in which EoS pulls 180 opts and wins with roughly 120 opts left. EoS starts to gain steam at this time with recently destroying Exer’s “outmasphere” and an old ally, Rune Raiders, are also around the same strength. Not soon after a few brushes with RR, RR start RL flaming and on and off member of EoS for years, Tankhive2. Jr Knight Jr and Bunga321 leave EoS after disputes with others in leadership about their situation and make their own NH clan, Assylum. Jrd and Lady Willow are put to Retired Leader due to being inactive and Mr Nickos Jr is now sole leader of EoS. The EoS and RR rivalry starts heating up with both clans wanting to fight, and eventually on a Sunday RR prep for EoS and EoS prep for RR in an “unofficial planned run in”. This fight lasts for a record 10 hours and EoS come out victorious over RR, but not without controversy such as EoS having friends, NI helping, etc. A few weeks later, RR start having less and less people show up to their Sunday PK trips and EoS start feeling the momentum. Shortly after that, Mr Nickos Jr steps down as leader because of inactivity and Broken1 and Prannoy take position as EoS leader along with a fresh new Council. A few weeks later, another run in is due to happen and once again, it goes for roughly 10 hours with RR ending in lava maze admitting defeat. EoS know this rivalry is once again won and start feeling the momentum of this satisfying victory. The leadership at this time after the new Council is:

Council: Aquariusfm, Baked Goods5, Buzzcut3, Luckyninja, Revilo143 and Urc Wolfy
Warlord: Coconutdonut and Marqouth1
12th Era, Two more rivalries to fuel EoS: EoS and VR schedule a war to and VR end up bringing a level 50 to lead them in. This being a blatant attempt to cheat the “Runehead members only” rule, EoS decide to not take it and not let the low level come. VR attack in retaliation, and thus, a rivalry is born from these ex-neutral clans. VR and EoS are much similar in accepting any wars and having a “never die” attitude, so this rivalry is certainly an interesting one. Shortly, EoS have a war with CL in which EoS brings 150 opts and CL bring 180 opts, but with EoS having proof of CL cheating, this sparks controversy and EoS decide to attack CL and make the war a run in. Within an hour, EoS force CL to stop returning and a flame war based on the validity of the proof and the tactic of “not informing CL” that it was a run in after we spammed that we would make it one. CL at this time are RR allies, and are not exactly thrilled about EoS as a clan, and EoS now have two rivalries to cope with. During this time, Broken goes inactive due to losing internet and moving making Prannoy the unofficial sole leader of EoS.

13th Era, A loss of wilderness: EoS and VR have a run in on December 9th 2007. EoS lose the fight, and the next day, December 10th 2007, the wilderness is removed to stop real world trading and a new PKing alternative, “Bounty Hunter”, is added along with Clan Wars as a replacement. Many clans eventually cope after a week or two, but some died with these changes. Luckily, EoS is not part of the latter and soon adjust to these changes becoming a dominant BH clan within no time. EoS is now arguably in the top 4-5 and are challenging and winning against clans with 30-40+ more members. Again, the VR rivalry keeps going, although the CL rivalry slowly dies down. Soon, rules and common boundaries are applied and Bounty Hunter becomes a half decent way of PKing and enjoying the wilderness. Corruption, an old friend and rival, also start gaining momentum, as well as cockiness. Cor are roughly as strong as they were when they took the #1 spot of the clan world in summer, and are letting their ego’s get the best of them by forgetting who their friends were. A few Cor members notice this and leave Cor, and EoS also notices this and decides to not take that kind of attitude. EoS is arguably at its strongest ever here, pulling 210 opts and Cor pulling 240 opts. EoS make the fight even from the beginning never being down a considerable amount and end up winning the fight in about 8 hours. Goku1208 is soon made Leader of EoS along with Prannoy and Broken1 is moved to retired leader. Once again, EoS have a run in with VR on February 18 2008 and lose before another big change, yet again.
Current Leadership in EoS:
Leaders: Goku1208 and Prannoy
High Council: Bb Blukiller and Cheezy1989
Council: 77396, Aquariusfm, Avenge Xx Buzzcut3, Urc Wolfy and Yeoldguy
Warlord: Marqouth1, Siner, and Sweetstick
14th Era, Loss of PKing altogether: On February 19 2008, Jagex released that Bounty Hunter was not mostly single with stipulations, but these stipulations still made run ins impossible. Clan Wars was still available, meaning that wars were still possible, but that run ins were no longer possible. This caused a huge hit in EoS as EoS is a primarily PKing clan. With some convincing within leadership however, EoS decided to try and warring instead of turning over and dieing. This was a difficult transition at first with the glitches in clan wars, but in a few short weeks EoS is yet again a warring clan to be reckoned with, winning around 12 matched option wars in a row. Rivalries with Cor and VR are still apparent, but with no more PKing it is nearly impossible to kill another clan or to hunt them, so rivalries are dwindling. Prannoy steps down as EoS leader to focus on RL and Cheezy1989 gets promoted to leader, along with Aquariusfm and Buzzcut3 being promoted to High Council, and Marqouth1 being promoted to Head Warlord. Nothing interesting happens for months as it is nearly impossible to cause drama, but EoS is still going strong with 75 members and a solid group of retired members coming back for the summer. There are some rumors of Multi returning leaving hope for the glory days of EoS to return along with PKing, which EoS still adore.
