long time player here

Hi, Stargem here.  Been playing mmog's since "The Realm".  Beta tested EverQuest in 1999 and been playing the franchise ever since.  Others I have played include; Asheron's Call, WoW, Elvanar to name a few.  I played LandMark and was hooked, unfortunately, Daybreak wasn't.  :(.  I have been looking for a similar type of game ever since.  I really hope this it.

I am an Army brat, a Marine widow and I am proud to say I have survived 70 years of living so far.  I am retired and loving it.  I CAN PLAY ANY TIME I WANT, FOR AS LONG AS I WANT!

In every game I have played, I have had a toon named Stargem, I consider her the original.  :smile:

Look forwad to chatting with all of you at one time or another.  :smile:

    Honored to meet you @Stargem! My father was in the military and I have the greatest respect for those who've given their service. Even greater props to an old time gamer. Welcome welcome to this strange and amazing place!

    Welcome! Glad to have you aboard! I tried to join the army when I was younger. Unfortunately, after 2 trips to MEPS I gave up and decided to do something else. Respect to the military, their family and spouses, though. Cheers

    Welcome @Stargem ! I am also a long time gamer, I was deep in the tech industry back in the early 90's after I was forced to learn computers in the Air Force (I say forced... they couldn't pry me off of it lol). I played Meridian at a friends house and I though it was cool but couldn't justify the subscription. EverQuest changed that entirely. MMO's are a way of life for me since, the wife and life have limited my time but I will still play and my wife lets me have my days. Just need to get her addicted... oh yes... it will happen. 

    Hope to see you in the game!

    Welcome @Stargem! It's great to have you join us!  Many great people here to party with, share stories and information.  But don't expect those dwarfs to share their ale!  
    With such company the long wait for Ashes might not be too bad.

    Huzzah! Another Meridian 59 player!
    (It seems like such a forgotten game now)

    Well met, @Stargem!  Welcome to our friendly community.

    I grew up in the Air Force and served in the Air Force myself.  I know the life of the military family.  I salute you.

    I have the feeling that there's a lot of folks here seething with (sub) concious jealousy for your ability to play anytime. I just hope that we all get a chance to see you over the days you're playing during any Alpha, beta, or during the insane non-stop playing you might get  up to over launch.
