Re: Your first time in Gobiath..

How was it?

It was awful. It was Christmas Eve and I had a bad flu.

Were there a lot of people online?

No. The server was empty. I thought this game was really crap, until the third time I logged in.

Did you meet any people? Who? Where?

I thought I met someone and I went up to greet them. It was a mummy.

What did you first do?

I got res-killed by a mummy 23 times at the yellow cross.

What 'class' was your first char? Did he/she stray on this path, or did they become a master at that?

A male dwarf blacksmith who had a pegleg and an eyepatch and was an elderly retired warrior named Skorszche Brekenzade of the Highmountain Brekenzades Son of Skitzcher Brekenzade.

What race was the character?

Dwarf.

What town did you 'settle' in/start in (For some chars) and did you like it there? Were there many people there?

Back then there was Trollsbane, Northerot, and Silverbrand, and it was really hard to get into Silverbrand without knowing German and it was hard to get to Northerot in general. Trollsbane.

How long did you survive until you were clouded?
Etc.

The time it took to get from the library to the north bridge, back then a minute and a half.

Twas pretty fun, really liked the newfangled roleplay thing.
There was a dance contest on that day, so there were quite a few players (10 at least !!!), stayed watching people dance, then randomly #me clapping or something and walk away. Everyone else was pretty silent
Didn't have a class at all.
Was a human
Didn't play him for very long, but was around Trollsbane Mostly
I never got clouded, though not for lack of trying. I couldn't understand that you needed to talk to NPCs (using keywords), so when everyone was sending me to the rose to buy a tool from Sam, I didn't work out that Sam was the silent person who didn't want to talk to me. Then a guy says he;ll take me, and tells me that Sam lives in a hut around the castle. He then proceeds to attempt to PK me. I hid in a building shadow and ran. *phew*

How was it?
Well, it was playable, but not very fun.

Were there a lot of people online?
No idea, I didn't know where to see that back then.

Did you meet any people? Who? Where?
Well, I might have seen some, but I couldn't separate NPC's and players, so I can't be sure. I didn't speak to any at least.

What did you first do?
Spend all my money on useless stuff (can't remember what stuff though).

What 'class' was your first char? Did he/she stray on this path, or did they become a master at that?
He is an archer. He was pretty badly beaten up by a stone golem though and lost his bow so he suddenly became a better carpenter than archer, but he still see himself as an archer, so I guess he is still on the path after a short vacation.

What race was the character?
Human

What town did you 'settle' in/start in (For some chars) and did you like it there? Were there many people there?
Troll's Bane, basically because I arrived there in the beginning, later I stayed since it seemed to be a good place, he won't stay for longer times in Troll's Bane since the prince though.

How long did you survive until you were clouded?
Hmm...I think it took some days, or was it a week? Well, suddenly he met the stone golem I mentioned earlier.

About 5-10, i guess. Sometimes up to 20.

I'd love to remember...but some'll know my chars, maybe^^

What did you first do?
To use the IG shouting-function and cry "HELP ME I AM NEW HERE!" *grins*

What 'class' was your first char? Did he/she stray on this path, or did they become a master at that?
The very first char...an allrounder(wannabe). A almost mastered carpenter and average swordfighter, the rest was weaker then average.

What race was the character?
Elf. Looked male btw :D

What town did you 'settle' in/start in (For some chars) and did you like it there? Were there many people there?
If i am not wrong, starting in former times always was in Bane...and yeah, it was great there, even if i was a noob there *g*

How long did you survive until you were clouded?
Let it be a month...then i started fighting mummies...and learned how afk-ing can kill you with 3 mummies in your back, hehe.

Re: Your first time in Gobiath..

How was it? Awesome.
Were there a lot of people online? Nearly 10. Quite a lot for those days.
Did you meet any people? Who? Where? Met Fooser and Kevin and Liles and some others in Troll's Bane at the leaning wall. They were talking about Synode. First line I ever heard was "Someone cackles", "You can't laugh without a head". Kl'urk was there too.
What did you first do? Walked North to the Grey Rose 'cause noone was in Bane at the time, talked to Sam for a while, thinking he was an AFK player and not an NPC, walked back down to Bane and observed.
What 'class' was your first char? Did he/she stray on this path, or did they become a master at that? This was in the day that you said "I want to be a magician/fighter/craftsman" when you first logged in and then were given relevant items. I chose magician and yes, he is a master at it.
What race was the character? Human, I've never used another char.
What town did you 'settle' in/start in (For some chars) and did you like it there? Were there many people there? Well, spent a lot of time in Bane but he joined Varshikar for the Magery Academy and then eventually founded Caelum.
How long did you survive until you were clouded? Couple of hours before I went for an explore, found the flies, got chased all the way into Varshikar castle and got clouded.

Good times.

How was it? Shit, for want of a better word. The graphics and game engine was far from what it is now back when I started. There were two orks (no one else was ever really on, player base was so small) and they just killed repeatedly anyone who was around....for days... everyday I was on.

Were there a lot of people online?
Lucky if there was 5-10 on a good day.

Did you meet any people? Who? Where?
I did meet my death repeatedly just as I was about to quit I met two players and discovered what RP was, hooked ever since. I cant remember who they/characters were. :?

What did you first do?
Walked out of the library and was stabbed to death by two orks.

What 'class' was your first char? Did he/she stray on this path, or did they become a master at that?
Rogue (or sorts) still have him now 9 years on, although his core path has changed a little over the years with game changes.

What race was the character?
Human

What town did you 'settle' in/start in (For some chars) and did you like it there? Were there many people there?
There was only Trollsbane and it was empty save for the smell of ork and my own digital blood.

How long did you survive until you were clouded?
ooh.... *looks at his watch* let me think.... just long enough to work out how to move my character outside and then the orks got me. Say 2 minutes. [/b]

I musta been 12, lived in Lebanon.

There were still story-applications, so it really gave me the impression of being "unique" and for elite people only.

When I got accepted, I nearly came in my pants and went around telling everyone including the owner of the cyber-café I was in. :lol:

Was a human, "Karl Gunther", "Karl Smith", etc..

I went in-game, saw a dwarf and did something along the lines of #me looks at the dwarf with the big beard and rotten teeth and smiles!

The dwarf answered something along the lines of #me has neither a big beard nor rotten teeth.

I was like "oh."

And quit. ):

That was my first lesson on force-roleplay. C:

-Ehhh... mage? No, he did not become a master of that...
What race was the character?
-Lizard.
What town did you 'settle' in/start in (For some chars) and did you like it there? Were there many people there?

How was it?

I was excited I was a lizardman.

Were there a lot of people online?

about 30

Did you meet any people? Who? Where?

I logged on in the library and Damien was the first person I met. He said hello and I yelled "I have pants! This is awesome!' he then explained to me what roleplaying was.

What did you first do?

I tried to understand what roleplaying was.

What 'class' was your first char? Did he/she stray on this path, or did they become a master at that?

Adventurer I guess. And yea, I did stray. Salathe also used to be good with magic ;D

What race was the character?

Lizardman of course

What town did you 'settle' in/start in (For some chars) and did you like it there? Were there many people there?

When I started playing there was only one town. And all 30 players that were online were in it.

Probably 20 minutes. The game was extremely graphically different back then and i thought that forest tiles were impassible, so i cornered myself in some and got ganked by flies.

How was it?

Confusing, clunky and unattractive. I was not planning to stick with this game at all!

Were there a lot of people online?

Very few...

What did you first do?

I tried to find other players...and find out if I could "Change the view." :P

Oh yes, and me screaming "Zzyathis" over and over again at Harold Pathfinder, the NPC that tells you some basic information on places, thinking I had spelled it wrong.

Did you meet any people? Who? Where?

I went into the tavern and I met some dude...still don't know who it was, who explained how the controls work, and how to rotate the character. (I was having trouble placing Sssari correctly on a chair.)
He also informed me I could not "Change the View."

What 'class' was your first char? Did he/she stray on this path, or did they become a master at that?

Sorta roguish...

Yeeeah....hes a "Mage" now....barely.

What race was the character?

Lizard!

What town did you 'settle' in/start in (For some chars) and did you like it there? Were there many people there?

Trollsbane! Oh yeah!

Seemed to be that everyone played there, least the English speakers.

First death? There's been a ton, one of my earliest I can remember came from the hands of none other then Blake!

Also, skeleton woods ambush=a very dead, and now penny-less lizard.
