Group History

Gods was originally a French demo group, which also eventually got good divisions in Norway and Germany. The group died around march 1998, as a result of several very important members leaving. First Sixpack left for Haujobb, then German swapper, trader, packer and sysop of their WHQ 'LOS ENDOS', Ghandy (ex Bonzai Brothers, late96-early97), decided to end his double membership to a Darkage-only member. Next Caramel left the group, with no certain destination, and English trader Lithium (ex Eltech, new late96) left the scene. After their death was a fact, English graphician Wade (ex Eltech, new late96) joined Nerve Axis. XBarr has, though it was stated so elsewhere, not left the scene. He has however, most probably begun working as a coder on the PC rather than for the Amiga anymore. I believe he is now in Syndrome on the PC.

Check out Bridgeclaw's homepage (http://members.xoom.com/bridgeclaw/) for some amazing pieces of art! Just CHECK out his latest work, seems like paintbrush - great!!

1995
German musician The Loop left for Artwork in December.
1996
In April Xanth was kicked out of the French section, and they announced that Wilsh was never a member since they don't allow doublemembs anymore. French graphician Geist (06/96) left to be a Balance-only member late in the year. News in Ethic's "X-Files #11" [11/96] that Ghandy and Sixpack had left for Syndrome were incorrect.
1997
Artwork's "Generation #24" [04/97] reported that Norwegian Typhoon/Avalon (gfx) joined.
1998
English sysop Zoltrix ('SPACED OUT', new late97) left in February.
2000
Norwegian graphician Bridgeclaw doublejoined Darkage early in the year.
2001
In the early part of the year, Norwegian swapper Punisher joined from Apathy and Darkage.


  • Norwegian sysop Sealapex ('PITSTOP'/'CLIFFHANGER' WHQ, 11/94-late96) sold his Amiga, so he left the scene. 'LOS ENDOS' is the new WHQ, 'DIGITAL CANDY' the new EHQ.
  • Norwegian coder Zytrox' (Morten Brudvik) code for "Jurassic Pack" is still being used, long after he has left the scene, and even Norway!
