    It has been a very long time since I have passed by here. I wondered if any of my old friends were still about and indeed I do see a few old names!

    Tell me some news! What are the lands like these days? Who is still running about that I might remember?

    For me, the world out here keeps me busy, I play DDO now and again, but I don't have the time or desire to play as I used to... other things are the focus of my energies now :)

    I am still around, although some days I wonder why, I am still hanging around in here.

    The new High Seas Adventurer added a bit more to game to do, but it is far from perfect.

    Hope you and the Mrs. and the kids are doing fine. :)

    There are no longer hordes of silver/dc Order Shields donned in dk. blue to fight the good fight and to ...save us like some big blue silver bolt of lightening defending the innocents upon Siege.

    Lil song for ya & the good memories I still have, Sire Knight Commander ! :)
    *sings....can you save me* hehe

    Hail, Lord Lethius!

    Aye, I am still around here, though my hours are severely limited - a hunt or two, three days a week, is the best I can manage most of the time.
    I know not if ye saw my note, left in that "other place", but events in the spirit realm ate up so much of my time, it became impossible to continue there, nostalgic as the place was.

    KSS's guildstones, and much of the memorabilia is safe. Perhaps one day, someone will rise, with the time, charisma, and energy to revive the legend, but for now, a caretaker is all I can be.

    On the bright side, the ursurper British's entire council were slaughtered some time back. The land has been much more peaceful since then. There are days when it might be too peaceful... but who knows what the future holds?

    SOL INVICTUS!

    Py! Long time no see.

    I'm no longer 'around', but I check in every so often.

    I think RL ganked more of us old-timers than VMP ever managed to.... =]

    Hard to believe that was 5 years ago already.

    Well fought sir Knight, and that will always remain one of my UO highlights =]

    Even happy with the way it ended. Better to fall in a blaze of glory giving three bastards a story they'll remember, than to finish off a single worthy opponent when he becomes unable to defend himself. (Re: 21 bandages remaining)

    Well, better yet to kill them all and bask in the lamentation of their womenfolk, but I'll take what I can get.

    And thanks Sky, for noticing that I do it in style.

    Hi Py!

    Good to hear from you.

    Weird, just got to thinking about the old days and here's an active thread by Py.

    Though I myself haven't played UO and ages, I just wanted to say I'm glad I ran into you that day in Moonglow, was some great PvP times that followed. Among the most fun gaming of my life.

    Take care Py, don't forget the wolves.

    (PS - Send me your DDO info sometime. I rarely play, but maybe we can synch up and run a dungeon or two some day.)

    Wow, so good to hear from you all! I do miss playing with you all, friends and foes alike! Some days I miss running around in a game world that actually feels like a world. I've heard people say that you always compare every game world to that first world that held you. I guess that's true of me. I've tried so many games, but none feel ... like "real worlds" the way UO felt. They are all like Trammel.. meaningless combat and empty rewards, virtual baubles...

    I remember being invited once to a knighting on a Trammel shard. A few KSS made characters and came with me, and though I was honored... it made me ask.. what does it mean to play a knight on a server where there is no cost of death, no ground to lose? What good deeds can you do? Let someone else in line before you to kill the spawn? What does it mean to play a villain there? It seemed to mean nothing.

    Some days I miss playing Py, the way I used to do, but I just don't have the same passion for it as I used to. I also don't have the same time for it like I used to. Sometimes I am tantalized by those old feelings, and I know some old friends who would raise a cheer to see a certain old knight patrolling the land, and I would love to do that for old friends, and for me, but time is no longer on my side.

    As for life, well the kids are great, doing very well. My eldest failed her driving test twice now! Learning humility is not a bad thing, especially when it comes to driving! Some positive things, I started a new developer job in January at a very successful independent game development studio - we do XBox, Playstation, Facebook, Wii games, etc... very cool environment, having fun at work.

    I remember you all very fondly, even the ones I chased to the ends of Ilshenar, whatever Py might have said, the player behind Py loved your villainy!

    Peace,

    Py Lethius, Retired Knight

    And to add... each thing each one of you said has filled me with so many memories and thoughts, I could not respond to it all properly, but just wanted to say that I am overwhelmed a bit thinking of it all :)

    Hi Py (allways enjoyed saying that)

    I actually just stumbled upon this thread on a slow day at work, well rather me being slowish at work, than work being slow really.
    I dont think ive been on stratics in 5 years, so its quite a coincidence to be stumbling onto this thread.

    Its weird to think about that its what, 11 - 12 years ago i joined CWS. Those early days of Siege really was a blast, even though the majority of my game time was spent hanging around the shire with Clly or hazzling Rohan, aka the king.

    I hope you, and a hullavalot of great people i played with, are doing well.

    Hi Py. I haven't played for a long time either, but I still lurk, keeping up with what Mythic's done to the game...

    I usually check in every time there's a "Return to Brittania" style promotion, look at the KRT guild roster with no logins for the last five years, remember all the Harrowers and Ilshenar fights we used to do with CWS/KSS, and then leave feeling quite melancholy...

    Oh wow. Hi there. :) you may not remember me I was with BHE. I remember a lot the posters here but couldn't remember my stratics login.
    I'm back for a lil while just roaming and feeling nostalgic. :)
    It almost makes me really sad to remember all the good times and see siege in it's current shape. I figure I'll give it a month, maybe being around wll encourage others to do the same.
