I'm resurrecting myself.

I got sucked into the world of online gaming, almost lost my house, business, sanity.

I now manage a small online gaming addiction, and I think I might actually have it under control.

I'd like to say hello to all the new players and see how many of the ancients are still posting around.  :D
After a brief retirement while I got married and traveled the country, I'm back. Just getting back into the swing of things for now, but gearing up to hit things up like I used to.

What do you mean by online gaming?

Not really an ancient, not really new either :P.

Hey there. I'm Nosredna (obviously) but I go by Nos.
My real name is Taame [obscenely horrible second name removed].
I'm a bit of a Photoshop junkie, I never seem to be using any other program. I'm eclectic (Bar some heavy metal. Not all. Some)
I'm a proud owner of a Gamecube (I have been since day 1 when everyone was saying it was rubbish).
I'm getting ready for a roleplay that I'm conjuring up in the OOC (why am I so lazy?)

I guess that's about it.

Most recent phase: Oriental Poems. (take a look at my signature)

Hello Agar. I began frequenting the site just as you got sucked into online gaming (if the posting frequency and dates are to be trusted). Nice to say hello and all so: Hello

Take care of yourself, your house, your business and your sanity =)

Hi Nos, Nice to meet you.

As for online gaming, like roleplaying games.

If you dare, you can check out forgottencreatures.com where I became a Mod, or look at adopt a canadian.

I was also playing dragon quest, mech crusaders, another game where you fight dragons ...

I still am playing cantr. Slowpaced game, but good. It's got a vastly different flavor than the other hack and slash games on the net. There is no such thing as levels, there are NO npcs. It's roughly billed as a society simulator, which is fun. There's only ONE rule, you can't have your characters know stuff your other characters know, unless they find out in the game. So, like if the king of one place dies, your character in another town CAN'T know untill someone walks thier happy butts over and tells everyone. Keep it in character, pretty simple.

If you guys want to check it out, it's free, at www.cantr.net ,and you can find me there as Agar too.

I do remember seeing some of your stuff ancient, thought it was pretty good.

So you're serious about nearly losing your job?
Bum break, man.
Good to have you back, though. Try to take a break every now and then! :)

heya, good to know that you too have kicked an online RP habit. I am not alone!
when I dissappeared for a bit I played a persistant world on NWN, sometimes for more than 14hours a day each and every day, so now my grades are crap, but I don't play much, if at all, anymore. I decided i'd get my RP fix by playing a little bit of DnD and hanging with some old friends :D

Now we just have to get Ria back on Strolen  :twisted:

I was a new recruit about the same time as Ancient, so I also watched you
being dragged away as by a maelstrom. I think I came here a few weeks
before Ancient! Hah!
But then again he had been a anynomous user for about a year or so by then... Sigh.

Anyway, welcome back.

I did, for one.

Who knew it was an ingredient on a package of Zingers?

 :twisted:

I did.
