While cutting firewood...
<****** / ^^^^^^ / ||||||>
You realize you have no idea what you're doing and you only manage to gather a single armful of firewood out of all you've done.
Herka... derka... derka?... I was totally doing something with this big axe and all this wood. Damn.

Well! Haven't had computer access in quite some time, and I hadn't been playing for some time before that, but now I'm back and hankerin' for some RPI action. (I'll probably retire my old character, though.)

What have I missed? :D

Well, that's always a given. :P

More serious question: Erm, where would I go about getting a new password for my game account again? This is kind of embarassing...

You can change your password from the log-in screen. Otherwise, message staff.

Otherwise, though, I remember it being awesome to RP with you, so I'm glad to have you around!

Thanks, I'm flattered that my few inconsequential characters have somehow managed to make such an impression!
I suppose I'll have to message staff, since I cannot actually reach the login screen.

SOI Urban Legends:

Evatre is a well-played, very consistent NPC. I've never seen her log in or out, and she is always there. :shock:

Ahhh, Fun fact SOI was my first RPI
Another fun fact, All I played before now was PK heavy MUDs.
Last fun fact, Holding back my PK urge for random and small things is hard, but I know stupidity on the Internet is impossible to avoid. (Thank you Internet for your important life lessons)

And that's the end to my mildly random rant! :lol:

You feel a sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach as the mushrooms hit.

You are starving!

I've been using 'hrah' and 'sha' in my other games by accident.

Back when I was playing way too much, I literally said this to my wife:

"Say When do we have to be there?"

Prefacing your conversations with 'say' in real life garners some very strange looks. :roll:
How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.

I think one of the funniest things about having a new character is how differently some people treat you on an OOC level when you're not as "important" as you were. It's like night and day.
Everything gets smaller now the further that I go
Towards the mouth and the reunion of the known and the unknown
Consider yourself lucky if you think of it as home
You can move mountains with your misery if you don't

I can't explain it, but the phrase 'a grievous gore' makes me smile.

I'm definitely planning to!
I'm moving to a new place this month, where I'll have an internet connection and an actual room to hide in, so hopefully I'll go back to spending hours on end RPing- when I'm not out drinking like the responsible adult I am these days, anyhow. :lol:
Are we still in Utterby/orc-place? Any major recent changes?

Yep playerbase still resides in Utterby and Vadok Mal. Playable Wargs, a new warfare craft, construction of Laketown still ongoing, and more RPP races promised to come soon. Oh, and Hobbitmail is back!

Numbers have gone way up as well, we regularly have 20+ and sometimes 8 or more during offpeak where it was like 2-4 for a while.

LOL. I'll take some of those strongest potions. But I don't think he'll let me have them.
