Supertasha says, 'i stared out at 0 so whatever is in the bank is what i made'
Sandman says, 'i can tell ya how much i had in the bank.. with maybe 1-2 chars.. or clan account.. that doesnt exist.. with 2 halls..'

Gho scuffles his feet around in the dirt.
Sandra says, 'basically, if we get the clan data back, it'll go in. If we don't, we won't shed tears. It's minor in the grand scheme. We'll reimb clan money if need be'
Sandman says, 'yeah clan money would be nice...'
Sandman says, 'considering i put a  tooon in that.. and made 2 halls.. etc etc'
Sandra says, 'it will go to the clan tho =) So the clan would have ot be made first'
Sandman says, 'aaand had strings in one of the rooms.. sigh'

Gho says, 'but i do think legend should reward those that donate.'
Supertasha nods her agreement with Gho.
Rubedo says, 'We'd quit if you didnt let us donate'
Sandra giggles.
Rubedo says, 'Freaky is already quitting cause he hates that you all are paying, assuming you pay'
Sandra says, 'if we do, we'll definitely let you know where to donate =)'
Gho says, 'like a free pretitle for people who will never get that much xp.'
Gho says, 'or something cool like that.'
Sandra says, 'we might!'
Gho says, 'but i'll donate either way.'
