Man this is a good subject. Talk about jogging ones memory.

Took me 2 hours to read though... long...

I remember wishing i could go to some of the events that were held for people to gather in person, but i was in a bad position at the time. wish i would have interacted with some of you guys back then. likely be more enjoyable now if i had. you're all like friends of mine that i never really knew.

I remember a couple events in which the admins or voices/saints would make a kingdom with their name as the leader name and challange us to find it. There was some reward given to the person who found them out aswell.
Anyone here ever win one of those, or know whether they took place in monarchy or early cannon?

also I didn't know all the backstory of how the founders had struggled to get this game started until now. Major props, you guys don't give up do you? glad you didn't.

If it's ok to ask here, what ever happened to decae, maxim, and posting twice a week...?

Decae (Dustin) had been threatening to work on some of his other projects for awhile and he finally carried through with it. Last I recall he was writing a novel, and had a newborn daughter (his second), and was really busy with work. I know about the work part because he was trying to get me to help him when I lost my job a year and a half ago, haha. He just posted the other day, so he still lurks.

Maxim went byebye due to lack of interest, lack of new ideas, and lack of a game that supported random events. Several people took shots at it, but we decided to close it down after the roleplay came to a stop. Posting twice a week never did encourage what we wanted, people felt it was a chore so we did away with it before Maxim was closed.

Venus, you're remembering my drunken and emotional tirade about not allowing Shareplay to destroy Monarchy and Braggart's Hall at the time. Sylandra (as her Saint name, at least I think it was her) was editing my posts because they were a bit unhealthy. So I told her to stop in Decae speak. I still have the post, it has a long title, "FUUUUUUCCCCKKKKKK...." etc.

Dan and I did start work on the game Dec 25th 1997. However, the game launched in "Gold" about May 10th. I know the date well because Alaura was born the week prior (the 6th). The Atlanta bash was after that, quickly followed by our server-hopping days. Some guys in Florida gave us a bunch of money - but it never really panned out and we kind of floated until we landed a few long-term financiers (Demmy/Whit/Crom and the donating player base).

So many memories.

Heh. She asked me if she should stop editting you, I told her fuck yeah, then we could hold it over your head when WE went on a drunken postage and not get editted.

I have nowhere else to post this question so using this BH one to ask:

Who was it in Monarchy that used to be hilarious in every post? Even his "serious" RP ones? Was it Atlas? Andy sorta reminded me of him in his Rusty Dagger post

And does anyone know what happened to him?

I'm curious about what happened to Generalisimo - that crackhead is probably incarcerated or six feet deep the way he was headed.

Generalisimo used to be Figgy, Fig Newton was his name back when he started and he had a brother, can't remember his name though.
Basement Troll maybe? He was in TAC then went to NEX I think

Basement Troll was his brother, yes.

I'll give turns to the first person who can tell me what Maverick's other posting name was back in the day.
Mav or any of his alts cannot apply!

Ok I'll give Venus the win on that one, I was thinking Gambit.

Generalismo had "Fig Newton" as a posting alt.
What was my tasty alt named?

;>

I think Mav had one too. But I don't remember it.

I dont know, Ive been thinking about it for a while but really cant remember if that ever happened.

The only 2 names I can think of is tastey cakes and oreo, but I really dont think thats right, but if you want me to say your nickname was Oreo and call you that from now on Im fine with that.

I cant believe your giving venus turns, this is an outrage and I should be given puffalump turns because I finally feel like claiming them.

I was the second stone cutter, that I remember.
