About:

Fansy the Famous Bard was a terribly annoying player from the game “EverQuest”, who fought for the underdog “good team” on the no-rules server.

He was able to fight “the evil bad guys” through a loophole which made him invulnerable, and while doing this would shout “Go Go Good Team!” and in true bard fashion, would engage the evil team with witty retorts and storytelling.

Because of Fansy, EverQuest’s “no-rules” server made its first rule.

Origin:

In July of 2001 a post was made to the “Sullon Zek Tavern” message-board by Fansy, recounting his crusade against the overwhelming evil team. The message-board at the server were awash with racism, anger, and curse-words, making Fansy’s clean-cut persona stand out all the more.

The original post was preserved, and more stories were posted to the notacult site, and later mirrored on notaddicted:
