When I was 4 years old I used to watch my sister play a game in first person view with a forest and a castle in the middle and guards at the gate and I remembered a swimming pool (or i thought it was then) and always asked her to go for a swim. (or demanded she go for a swim) and then after she would go out to fight monsters. Big rats and little blueish grey things and there was a big DING!! sound after a while and she would cheer.
About 4 days ago I asked her about it. World of Warcraft reminded me of it somehow and she said.
Oh, you mean EverQuest?
She googled around for me and found out her childhood game still lives. The old purple iMac she had in her room that she played it on died of hard drive sickness a few years ago but she signed me up for a account. It did not work for a few days tell just now and I am alone. My sister went home 2 days ago and it finally worked when I clicked play.
I remember she was a human priest/cleric, so I made one. I am now standing outside that castle I remembered from so long ago.
My in-game name is Bethe, I made a human Cleric and I am really REALLY excited! Only, I am confused, lost =O I have no idea where to go. Are a lot of people online right now? I will be looking around the forums on how to join channels. It is so much different than WoW but it feels very magical. It looks the same as it always did only my screen is better looking.
I do have a question. When I got my account it said 14 and now it says 10. What does that mean?
It is so nice to meet everyone here and I hope we can play together ^^
I have no weapons or anything. I got killed by a man who said he wanted to tell me a story and then I was in front of the castle in the forest. I tried to fight a rat and got killed by a knoll pup. I found the swimming pool and finally realized it is a body of water in the grass covered alleyway =D
Here is where I am (screenshot)
