Who was your first R7? Do you even remember you shameless rank whore? Were they any good? Who was the best R7 you served under?

I actually had to ask Chip who the R7 was when he first jumped me into the FDC. Apparently a chap called Cheesman, I never met or heard from him and this wasn't high pop FoM.

Not quite sure who that was exactly. I remember that the Law Enforcement Department was my very first faction, but I also remember back when I first touched ground in the game as the lowly grunt I was back then, faction leaders were pretty much perceived as mythological characters who weren't seen amongst the general pop, not like they were when Face of Mankind had a low population.

That, and I was an adolescent blud who didn't really care who was above me.

Tbf the first R7s I actually remember was Tornadium and Crez which was very much after FoM wus ded game.

Probably who is the first R7 you interacted with or remember is a better question.

First R7 I remember really interacting with would probably be Ferin.

Best R7 I served under was probably Myo or Ferin (maybe Dietrich and Sammy but never really interacted with them while they were R7s) but my experiences were entirely defined by the FDC so my pool of decent faction leaders is fairly small.

First R7 was Winters (Dev)

Most fondly remember the time spent under Rivers and Dogpyle though.

I think it's fair to say this time was the high time of FoM in general. Oh damn, double the age now.

First R7 was Papa Mojo iirc but surprisingly the first person I really remember was The Claw, just because of how often he'd tell me to shut my mouth on vent because I was a squeaker. You know it's just occurred to me it's been nearly 15 years since then, what the actual fuck..
