    Sierra “Zynxs” Rush joins the team to help with Customer Service and takes on the role as our VIP Planner. During her newbie levels, her parents were Game Counselors for Nintendo during the day while her late father Christopher Rush was quietly painting for a then little-known card game called Magic: The Gathering at night.

    Thanks to her geeky upbringing, she has had a controller or mouse in her hand ever since she was a wee lass. Her lifelong passion for MMORPGs started in 1998 with EverQuest. From there she became a tester, forum junkie, and community presence wherever she went. Following that path of great adventure, she turned what was a hobby into a profession in 2009 when she became a Game Master for Everquest II.

    She's a Halfling at heart, and like halflings has a strong love for a warm hearth and good company. Sierra firmly believes that the community makes the game. To that end, she's devoted her free time to community building on fan sites in many forms.

    Making the most of her experience as a Customer Service Guru and Community Presence, she will be utilizing her talents with Customer Service and as well as becoming our dedicated community liaison for our VIP Program with the hope of improving and expanding both areas as needed!

    Please join us in giving Sierra a big warm welcome to the team! :)

    Terrific news - warmest welcome Sierra.  Is it time for second breakfast yet?  Oh wait, that's hobbits, not halflings.  Regardless, it is wonderful to have you joining the team.

    Welcome, Sierra (Zynxs). In Discord we are all wondering if new and exciting things are on the Horizon with VIP's now that there's a VIP Planner (Liason). Can't wait to find out. And the way you feel about community is the way the community of Pantheon feels and community.

    It might be hobbits. However I still enjoy a good brie, warm with marmalade over bread. :)

    Thank you for the warm welcome everyone!

    Ah-ha, I have a little more time to post now.  Instead of my rushed excitement this morning.. Pun always intended.

    Salutations and thank you all for the warm welcome, even you tall, anti-halfling folk! We'll grow on you... Well, perhaps not literally.  At least I hope I'll grow on you. ;)  It is in our very nature to cause our allies to succumb to the merriment of our people, afterall. 

    You have no idea how happy to be part of the VR Team and so very excited about where we are going with Pantheon!  Well, maybe you do! You are all part of this journey too!Either way, I am very eager to begin working hard for our community at large, and improving our VIP program.  

    I am eagerly looking forward to meeting you all on our new upcoming Livestream on April 27th!  Hopefully you will pardon any sounds of dismay if we get in over our heads.  I am going to do my best to keep everyone in one piece! Though I hear we are going on a very dangerous adventure and one can never be too prepared or too certain of what lies ahead!
