Leaving behind the mortal shell…

For some of us, leaving behind that mortal life can be one of the most difficult choices we’ve ever had to make. There are the quasi-friends that we love to see when we log in each day. There’s the political turmoil that we’ve so embroiled ourselves in that we dare let our fingers off of…

An aging perspective

It’s a unique experience to play one of the most critically viewed divine in all of Lusternia. You either hate my character or love her. You may feel she is played by someone who is running on a temper tantrum, or some other aspect of mild mannered thought of explanation as to why she is…

Realpolitik

As those of you who know my in-game persona of Elostian will undoubtedly acknowledge, I enjoy talking. A lot. As such, my (long) entry into this phenomena called (we)blog will hardly come as a surprise. In fact, upon due reflection I will conclude that this form of interaction is infinitely preferable, since it saves me…

Shikari Part 1: From Ignorant to Ephemeral

“Text-based? So there’s a lot of reading? I don’t know about that…” Yeah, I was one of those people. I’ve played MMORPGs for years, from Ragnarok Online on private servers to Guild Wars – and yes, I did dabble in World of Warcraft. But before 2008, I’d never played a MUD before, and I was…
