    I really hope I'm not breaking any Rules of Conduct here, but as near as I can tell I'm not.

    I'm going to give you a link to a site, that I think you will find to be as hillarious as I do. It is extremely well done and, as near as I can tell, hasn't been updated in 10 years (which should in itself be sufficient to not break any rules that could be construed as sane)

    Just to get you in the mood, here's a couple of pics from the site:

    Here's the link: Imanewbie.com

    I remember how me and my sons waited every week for the next episode. I think reading this my first years in UO added to my love of Britannia.

    My favorite is still Real Life - though he hasn't done any UO humor in a long, long time...

    It blows my mind that not only had you no idea that ImaNewbie was a thing, but that you thought that linking to it might be a bannable offense.

    I love Real Life! You must have missed his week long tangent into UO back in July. Start here http://www.reallifecomics.com/archive/120719.html and click next until you get to the Aug. 2nd comic. Granted it was not as great as his old UO stuff but it was actually one of the things that brought me back to the game after 6 years.

    For those interested you can start in the Archives back in 1999 and read the whole thing. He used to have a lot of UO content back in the day.

    Cheers,

    Buddy

    Well, I have seen people get into serious trouble with the mod's here - when linking to 3rd party sites, and I had not COMPLETELY explored every nook and cranny of imanewbie's site to be certain that there was nothing there that would violate the "Rules". I wanted to be sure people understood that it was only the humor that I thought worth sharing. I vaguely remember seeing one or two of these "episodes" - literally back in the last century, but hadn't seen anything about it here, and sure didn't know that it was already link'd here on Stratics. Guess I need to explore Stratics in more detail...
    But thx for the thoughtful input, Cogniac... ;)

    I saw it but discounted it because it ended kinda lamely so (I'm guessing) he could go off into the next arc, which was pretty time sensitive. It had been on my mind, and is probably part of why I came back after CoX was shut down.

    Imanewbie is great.

    Anyone else remember a RPer that used to hang out in Wind and kill anyone passing through that didnt wear a red bandana or something? He used to write up his exploits with screen shots, and was quite witty. Id love to see those again...
