Onward to the best bits... and don't spare the horses!

Due to overwhelming popular demand, (thank you Callumf), I am now able return to my tale after an overlong absence. At the time of writing the introductory section of this blog, I had quite a firm idea of what would be my "best bits", a disparate collection of role-playing highlights, with a few low-lights thrown in for added colour. Upon reflection I have decided to give a, perhaps non too brief, summary of the life of my character and how both he, and I, developed through immersion in the worl

Could Someone Tell Me Why People Think Its Okay To Harrass People On the Internet?

I really wish someone could explain to me why people think its okay to harass people on the internet. What compels some people to say things on the internet that in the real world would get them punched in the face, the stuffing beat out of them or even arrested?   I wish I knew, maybe I wouldn't have recently gotten permanently banned from a forum recently. I freely admit I blew my stack. I blew my stack because a group of persons pushed my my buttons to the breaking point. Yes, I did report th

UO... my best bits.

I stumbled upon UO entirely by accident.   About ten years ago I found myself at a bit of a loose end and was sat at my keyboard thinking of games I had played in the past and Ultima sprang forth from my, somewhat cluttered, memory. I struggle to recall exactly which Ultima it was, for anyone who knows it was the one with the murder in Trinsic that one was supposed to solve. Anyway, I had spent many a long evening wandering around that world and it struck me that I could possibly encounter it on

Hope Returns

2006: That was the last time this account had been active. It is hard to believe it has been 9 years but it is finally time this account was reactivated and it's characters get to walk the realms again. So return the characters of the Hope Company of the Twilight Fellowship. I had made this account using the new account code of my Age of Shadows Expansion. Expansions were still boxed CDs back then, sitting prettily on shelves in stores. I'm sure I still have the box somewhere tucked away, hoarde

Still of the Night

It was a quiet night in Aegis. The threat of bears moving ever closer to the Knights Rest seemed to fade from his mind, as he looked toward the renovations of the Tavern. It had been a long, slow day of work, and Aedon's thoughts turned towards the footpaths of the Glade. Setting his work aside, he picked up his walking stick, and strolled out into the fresh air of the midsummer night.   He had always loved this time of the evening. The stillness which wrapped its arms around the Yew forest aff

Walk in Winter Woods

I first laid eyes on her in the spring.   Strong as a young oak, yet as lithe as a willow, she moved lightly through the forest. And where her feet passed new growth sprung forth from the ground to greet and revel in her coming.   These were light days, filled with all the promise of new life. Every moment a story-each day is a song to be passed down through the ages. It was with some reverence that I followed at a distance, not wanting to disturb her, and yet longing only to be near her.   Summ

Shroud of the Avatar in my crosshair...

Finally managed to put a few nickels together and went for the Founder status. Getting to citizen status would be nice, I hate paying taxes on my home, real or imagined! But I don't foresee my being able to loosen up that amount of cash. Still all in all the game so far looks interesting

New site

Love the update to IP boards. Nice system with a ton of options. I'm hoping Adam adds the Members Map. I did it on my son's band site and it's really interesting to see where folks are at. You can take a look at it in action here http://boards.theblackdotsofdeath.com/index.php?app=membermap
