    Yes I am...as stated in my signature...a True Original.

    I have very fond memories of that first day, it was crazy hectic but a lot of fun.

    :) Still around. There is a lot more to life now than there was then, but when I poke around I am generally poking around here.

    Not sure if it counts, but I played here for a couple months starting the 1st day, character's name was "Valtar" doubt anyone would remember it. I missed my friends on my home shard Atlantic too much though, so moved back there full time and have been there ever since.

    The RP aspect here was pretty stellar for a good while. It pains me to see the Bright Axes have moved to Atl. I can't help but think of all their houses in the valley. *sigh*

    I have chars in XMG and a couple still in KoRH. You can always give a holler. Once the loot rolls out I'll be up for pretty much any and everything. I'm still working on better than average suits for a lot of my chars at the moment.

    LOL. Well, I uninstalled the program after I got several, four I think, solicitations that were uninvited during the course of one week. I said to myself, "Self, that is quite enough of that crap". I just couldn't see having it producing good things for me, my machine, or my game experience. So, I have been begging for better communication tools in the game ever since.

    Vent is always lovely. :)

    I don't think so. I do still remember my old number, but I doubt I have any way to recover it.

    There are rampant castle spots everywhere. I too have done some poking. Actually working on getting a guild forum up here on stratics. I think I'll be around awhile barring some extreme foolishness from the powers that be. :D

    Yup. It's why my keep spots are going away. I placed two castles and am consolidating into those two. Once is CMA's HQ and the other is my perpetually under construction museum.

    LOL! So, RTB next week and I think XMG will be hosting some events during the month that it is active for sure. Also doing some other things to generate interest. We should talk. You too @Tina Small .

    :) If we do that, we should just make an announcement in GC then?

    I dunno we were planning to do some evening peerless hunts but....we haven't seen the traffic. Anybody else?

    Well I usually don't announce events in Fel as it is an invitation to attack. But they are fun events with a group. If we do I Tram, then I think announcing it is a fine idea.

    Unfortunately....and my previous attempts to draw more people here have failed :(

    Our EM has fel events once a month, just had one last night, that's usually the only time there's any activity in fel..and it's not much PvP just random killing and rez-killing lol.

    I do miss the good ole days.

    I was day 1. Came from ATL. Very random spurts of playing since AOS.

    I owned the house that collapsed in luna. If anyone has the shard transfer rewards, I'd like to get them back on the account that owned them. I don't think they have any value without the account. I think all my soul stones were still on ATL, but if any were there, would be mighty nice of ya.
