I'm a returning player from the Renaissance days, after a good 5-6 year break. Shame on me, I know. But I recently downloaded the game, and made a new account for the 14-day trial, just to test the waters again. And now, I'm hopelessly addicted again, and my trial ended yesterday. Bah! I can't play again until I get paid later this week. Reading all of this stuff about SA, imbuing and the like... SA sounds really, really cool so far. I'm dying to try it out. I just have to wait until Thursday to subscribe. In the meantime, I'll continue to read and absorb all I can about SA on this great forum. I'm glad to see a lot of positive things being said about SA.
