    Just thought I'd say hello to see if anyone remembered me.

    I wasn't on Europa for long, so probably not.

    I had a short stay on your shard in between playing on Lake Superior and a comparatively brief period where I wasn't playing at all.

    It was a lot of fun and I got to participate in many playstyles.

    At the time a guild named the Apple Infantry (AI) was making a push to become hegemonic in Felucca, I fought them a lot. There were some great screencaps of me, during a fight in Terathan Keep, standing in the middle of their poison fields, shooting arrows, with members of the Shadowlords Faction (who were also fighting AI) casting cures on me.

    I also participated in some EM events, unfortunately I can't remember the name of the EM or his character back then, but it was around the time that the orcs temporarily took over Cove (when the drilling devices dropped).

    And, finally, I had the comparatively rare experience of RolePlaying as a blue, meaning I wasn't in one of the main RP alliances. While this meant I couldn't fight, it also meant that I didn't have to fight, which was fine with me because I liked the idea of Galen standing on the outside of things, not being terribly involved. I used to offer sardonic commentary from the corner of Swagger's Tavern, tip Gareth extra to make sure my bread wasn't mouldy (which meant he'd run to the NPC inn nearby to get it), and once I got to rescue a lady from a burning building by tying rope to an arrow, shooting her in the hip with it, and dragging her out. She died later from smoke inhalation, but oh well. These things happen.

    I'm not coming back to Europa, I'm having a good time on Great Lakes now, but some RP-related posts on U-Hall reminded me of how much fun this shard was.

    So I thought I'd say hello!


    Hopefully you're all having as much fun as I did.
