Hello everyone! I was looking through some old files on my computer when i came across my copy of EQMac - which I probably haven't launched in a few years. Hearing that music swell up again sent a velium sword straight through my heart. So many memories made, lands explored, PoK hung out in... It really brings me back to when I was 19 and brash, inciting flame wars with neo-cons and attempting to take the MMO to new existential heights.
Regardless, I just wanted to let anyone looking for me, Uttama, or Karakos should direct their attention to World of Warcraft's Argent Dawn server. There the guild lives on as "Frozen Poets of Velious"
. My character's name is Matiusu
, Uttama is still Uttama
and Karakos plays as Deerhoof
I also play FFXI
- which is easily the greatest MMO I've ever played. Seriously, if you hardcore kids like the difficulty of EQ, you should give FFXI a spin. It's just not worth it if you don't lose exp when you die! I play on the Alexander server as a San d'Orian Hume male named Phinn. Now that I'm capped out and getting the season 3 arena gear in WoW, I really only play it for an hour or so a week. FFXI is definitely where my passions lie these days.
A couple years ago I attempted to play EQMac again - but I ended up just spending a weekend fishing around Freeport and that's about it. Once it got to the point where I needed to take a group into Splitpaw and I realized all of the lower level zones are baron wastelands, I gave it up once again. I'm sure I'll return again for nostalgia's sake eventually, but until that day I figured I'd let everyone know where I've been and what I've been up to. If you're a former Frozen Poet or friend of the poets who plays either WoW or FFXI, please drop on my server and say hello!
