Ok, first of all, I think I deserve a lot of credit for actually remembering my user name and password here.
Second, just wanted to say Hi to anyone in CN who might remember me. It's been several years since I've actually played EQ1, but I had a 67 Pally (Eldiroth), and a 67 Chanter (Cendyan) when I last played. I pretty much left EQ for WoW when it launched, and started CN in WoW with a few others. I played WoW for about 2 years until I just couldn't stand the horrible community any longer. It was a decent game, but wow, what a cesspool of humanity that was.
Then I went to EQ2, where I've been playing on and off for a couple years (mostly on). There I am now an officer in Order of the Open Hand. It's kind of funny, but for those who may remember, CN absorbed the remants of Order of the Open Hand in EQ1 years ago. Well, the reverse happened in EQ2, and there are many former CN/EQ1ers in the guild. To throw out some names: Roladena, Teory, Rocwen, Loendar, Argak, Ryanah, etc. There are many others, but those are the most active former CNers.
I realize there are probably less than 10 of you who remember me and/or anyone else I listed. But CN was my home in EQ1, and EQ1 was my first MMO. I am personally of the opinion that EQ2 is the best MMO on the market right now, but the fun I had in EQ1 has not been matched yet, in any game (and I've tried lots)!
At various points, I've kicked around the idea of trying to make an EQ1 comeback, but I just can't. The game has changed so much and I have forgotten how to play completely. However, I might poke my head in sometime soon just to say hi and look around a bit. I have Station Access, primarily for the extra EQ2 character slots, so I'd just have to install and log in.
Really, though, I might be getting a bit burned out on MMOs in general. I have a hard time finding one that holds my interest for very long any more. I'm beta testing Age of Conan right now, and it's a beautiful game, but I'm not sure I want to go there. Parts of the community remind me a lot of WoW, sadly. But again, my EQ1 gaming days still were the best gaming days of my life, hands down.
So anyway, just saying hi, really. And if you see me log in in the next few days, it's not to stay, it's probably just to look around a little bit.
