When Belakai left skidmarks all over town.


When Aeon was unstoppable.


When people died to hidden recklessness from tweak.


When @Caboose was Keeper.


When @Mazzion was a Mage.


When Mages were Mages.


When @Daskalos killed me in three hits.


When there was That One Undead Monk in Bloodloch, forget his name.


You turn!

the way she tells me I'm hers and she is mine

open hand or closed fist would be fine

blood as rare and sweet as cherry wine

    I remember... Wedric being a newbie something along the lines of three times. People blame it on griefing, but I just figure he's a newbie at heart anyway and we were just helping him back to his natural state.

    I remember... Haern being accused of cheating in an event because the other side didn't realise HIDE stopped them seeing people pick items up off the ground. I love noobs.

    I remember... when half the lighters learned about tab-complete. (Wait, that was last week >.> I love noobs, great for lulz)

    I remember... when Belgarion was a mage with an arti bow, and would curare me to death whenever I wandered near (into his retardation). What a noob (me).

    And lastly, when every second event was "Artifice, Severn did it!" (Seriously, it's been a while, when do we get him back?)

    The thing recently with Hashan hiding a nasty monster that no god but Severn really knew about doesn't count as, "Artifice, Severn did it?"

    As for me, I remember...

    When Ashtan and Shallam were guarded by archers that insta-killed any enemy who entered the city.

    When shopkeeping was very, very difficult for people with concoctions. The only way to get an appreciable number of herbs for sale was to get them all out of your pocketbelt (not cache, since those didn't exist yet and neither did shopcaches!) and then qq so that they'll all fall out of your inventory and land on the floor, where you could then price them. On the flip side, charging 30-40 gold per herb was entirely acceptable, as was selling refills of health for 300 gold apiece.

    When I killed Shoimoro during the totem war events because he was AFK in a forest room that had been exterminated. Fixing that led to his enemy status with Duiran kicking back him, and the forest did the rest. I was never caught ICly, but my friend who was playing on the other side of the game got mad at me at school the next day.

    When Niuran was named Midautumn.

    When old-name vampires still played regularly, and seeing them stagger around the highway trying to get out of the sun during the day wasn't uncommon.

    When getting tekal was actually difficult and dying hurt.

    When the Sentaari had the worst GM title ever and gave off a distinctly hippie vibe.

    When a new/changed guild meant an influx of newbies and alts rather than a few requests for apprenticeships.

    When I finally figured out the concept of RP and promptly felt the need to not be connected to my first alts because of how bad some of the things I did as a newbie were in hindsight.

    AHH! Telnet, I remember those days. And the no mapping systems! Pretty sure I had them printed out to navigate easier.

    Anyways, let's see what I can remember..
    - Having to pay clan fees
    - Crazy Hakhim and his obsession for rats.
    - Wandering through Ashtan and getting lost
    - When Crystal Leaf Inn was the place to be

    - Ciem being released on one of my first days of playing.

    - Being an innocent bystanding newb when Minia was given it's most recent makeup and Desian beheaded me in front of all the darkies gathered there :/

    - Shinobu talking over the GT channel and thinking it was a player and getting really disgruntled when they ignored me talking to them in the old Sentaari guildhall.

    - Ashtan in all of it's confusing and quirky glory. I have really fond memories of that place.

    - Someone creating a character called "Venedicto" and pretending they were my long lost brother.

    - First meeting @‌kog outside Ashtan.

    - Being chased around the Lirisis (?) Beach by Osifer.

    - Ravek saving me from being lost in the Birkha Mire

    • When the only way to get Consanguine class was to kick your way to level 50 as a servant.
    You didn't just join other guilds and hunt with their newbie skills?

  • JensenJensen Corruption's Butcher Member Posts: 1,808 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Nope you were a servant and they made sure you knew it

    nope we were not allowed other classes then. You kicked and did it naked in the snow, while walking ten miles uphill :(

    Depends, really. Back in the day, my vampire character was allowed to join the Sentaari and combo their way to level 50. Every sire was different!

    You could join another guild as a newb, pretend you weren't trying to be a vamp, and just stay until they booted you. Then pick the next guild.

    I know, I did it (Bahir'an) pre-thrall-system.
    You just weren't sneaky enough.

    Doesn't that pre-suppose that you knew about the requirements before joining the game. As a trunewb I would have had no idea and my immersion was so complete I would have done anything I was told!

    Man, this is something that I did for Achaea but I'm sure I would have done it for Aetolia. I used to print out all the requirements and the questions that people would ask and then write my responses in a notebook way ahead of time. I think I spent more time working on those guild requirement questions than I did my homework.

    I uh. I did something like this when I did my first few interviews on Tamori.

    Is it bad I still have my notebook from doing this? Idk why I keep it. Sentimental I guess.
    Mudprawn wat?

    a vile creature of the female variety, commonly found in bars or dingy night clubs. physical characteristics include bad skin, palisade fence-like teeth, and an unsettling fishy smell. come in a variety of shapes and sizes, none of which are attractive. avoid at all costs! if bitten by this creature, hack off the infected limb, to avoid the spread of poison.

    I remember....

    ...Spirean rogue Paladins. We did bliss duty at the IG and dels over CT.

    ...killing people with swordfish morph.

    ...Onesipherous (I mangled that spelling, I know) and Wedric being the only darkie source of concoctions.

    ...Vasilus's traps all over Spinesreach.

    ....disfavors that lasted for 2 RL months.

    ...when 80 was a very respectable level for a PKer.

    ...the Syssin's old wormhole network into a dozen shop stockrooms. Every time we needed inks or herbs, we'd just pop in and grab what we needed.

    ...phase-stalking people bashing for the free xp.

    ...when tradeskill designs were physical items. Tons and tons and tons of physical items.

    ...using shiftsoul (I think?) to slam someone with a truelock+voyria half a continent away.

    ...when illusioning 2 resto breaks and dstabing epseth was enough to behead half of the game.

    ...when noose actually killed people. OH WAIT @TOZ

    The earliest memory I have of Aetolia I can actually confirm was meeting Cilsen when he was with Night...something. Nightcrawler?

    I don't have any logs left from 2005 when I first started playing. ;_;
