Allow me to introduce myself...

I suppose I have this blog to blame for re-addicting me to the world of Ragnarok Online.

I had played RO for a very brief period of time back in 2003 when the game was still young and the main servers were still free. Due to various reasons, I wound up quitting the game after less than half a year. A few years later in 2005, I picked up World of Warcraft, which was also a fairly young game at the time, and was immersed in that for about a year or so.

Unfortunately, my undead mage was only
slightly less ugly without her gnome mask on.

Timm[ie] and I went to high school together, but didn't actually know each other that well. In fact, I don't think we'd ever even spoke directly to each other before. However, we got to know each other online after graduating high school which lead me to stumble upon this RO blog. Seeing all of the screenshots of familiar locations really brought back some fond memories. So, I took a chance by downloading RO onto my laptop (completely aware that it would probably kill the old thing btw) and have been enjoying myself ever since!

So, that's my story in a nutshell. Thank you, CS181 kids for inviting me to post on your blog even though I'm not a computer-related major (or a super cool Stanford student for that matter)! I'll see you in game!

Yes, I totally took a glamour shot of Illyria.


  1. Wow, that is an awesome screenshot. ^^

  2. Thanks! I happened to swing my camera around while I was auto-running to somewhere and lucked out with that shot. =)

  3. Nice to finally meet you. Timmie kept posting about this mysterious girl from high school...

    Don't worry about not being CS or Stanford. We take people based on how cool they are, not where they're being cool at. XD

  4. Lol thanks! I think you guys are all pretty cool kids too ;D
