Back In the Game

Finally got the game working, and partied with 'Chelle to whack little sprites into submission.

Wow, everything is so nostalgic. Except...not. In a weird way. When I played a few years ago, the server I was on had chosen to go pretty hardcore: warping required the actual item, exp and drop rates were 1x or something extremely low, etc. So it seems really, really strange to be blazing through dungeons that I once spent hours in.

One thing's completely new, though: PKing. I tend to play non-PK servers, since I'm too lazy/not hardcore enough to grind forever for a good PvP build...but at heart I'm a PKKer.

Too bad we couldn't find the 'sader that backstabbed 'Chelle and me. Little bugger waited until we were surrounded by monsters, then darted in, killed us both, and left. I got a few spells off, despite being ridiculously underleveled, but didn't do much damage. Also didn't manage to catch the guy's name, more's the pity.

Can't wait to make use of the 8000x rate to try my hand at PKKing. *cracks knuckles*

...But at the same time I really need to not get sucked into this game again. Self, repeat: it's 2 AM go to sleep it's 2 AM go to sleep it's 2 AM go to sleep.

Edit: Was up 'till 5 or 6; my character is now a level 207ish High Wizard. Sigh. Lrn2selfcontrol.


  1. Yeah, I've never done the whole PK thing myself. I found myself somewhat opposed to the idea at first (I wanna be nice >_<), but it seems like it would make things more a somewhat similar (ok, maybe not really) way to how hardcore mode in D2 is a lot more engaging. Or so I hear anyways. But things are more engaging when they actually matter. Which goes back to how the dungeons, monsters, traveling, etc. are all meaningless in high-rate because they don't matter.

  2. The way I got over the "I wanna be nice" thing was by going with PKKing instead of PKing. People who wander around killing others irritate me. So if I kill them instead of innocents, I get two birds with one stone.

    Ahahaha. I've been through so many games that I'm increasingly of the opinion that nothing matters; you leave them eventually all the same. ...And yet the occasional game will still suck me in and take up my sleep time. Urgh. Need a nap...

  3. So I take it that in the end, you were actually able to party? We need to figure out what we're doing and party up...
