Happy Belated Thanksgiving Brood

Post by Tide »

Hope all you guys still playing and not playing are doing well. Hope you all got full on some turkey. Funny I finished this degree and got a job at the University of Alabama. Hah, funny how things work.

Anyway, be good guys and thanks for the memories. I still game, but not like the old days of raiding as that ended with EQ and PB. Just the lore heavy game you may know from Tolkien in a very casual way.

Funny my boys are now teenagers and wanted to play a game (all 3 of us) over the Holiday break. We were looking at D&D online or LoTRo since they are both free to play.

Firefoot. I play one of the small populated ones. Surprised I didn't play Bullroarer as it is a Test Server.

My main characters are Croyle a Captain and Domenica a Burglar if you are ever on there. I actually have 4 characters leveled to almost max. I don't raid, so I just level, level, level, craft, craft, craft hehe.

Rex, remember about F2P, they are just free for the first areas, Then you have to do deeds to get other stuff free. Good to hear from you guys. Oh and btw, I got another Ford Rex hehe.

Oh and Myst, dang right I am getting old. I feel like it too some days. Man it has been so long with some great memories.

Cool. I'm mostly on Landroval, though I think I have a level 9 something-or-other on Firefoot. I don't do the raiding thing either... only have one 65 so far.


Rex, as far as DDO and LotRO... they're both enjoyable from what I saw, but LotRO is more solo-friendly. DDO almost requires groups (somewhat like EQ, I suppose ;)). I have a lot of fun with LotRO; they did a good job making it seem like Middle-earth.

Also, for the LotRO free-to-play stuff, they made all the epic storyline quests free in the latest update, which came out this Monday. I think you can also do Skirmishes free-to-play starting at level 20 (Skirmishes are instanced, sort of like LDoN type things -- you get an NPC helper that you can use and level up inside Skirmishes).

Wow, this board is still around! Is PB still kicking? Not seeing a lot on the dkp list and not a lot of chatter.

A casual, mostly afk gaming experience is about all I get time for lately, but I occasionally remember the old raiding days and wonder how the gang is. Today someone was telling me about server merges and they said Test was no more...hope that isn't true. I guess it couldn't last forever, but it was a fun place to play back in the day...

Good, glad he was wrong!

These days, I am playing LoTRO on Brandywine, and spend at least half my time afk. I just don't have the time to raid anymore. I left EQ to raid less, and ended up raiding more in WoW, so had to make a clean break.

Can't believe EQ is not F2P yet...based on an interview I did with Smed years ago, I figured it would have flipped by now. Well, give em hell!
