Nelginto Everyone

OK so some of you may remember me, I'm probably way older than most. Try

having a board for people 400 and older and I'm well in there*sigh*


So my personal Avalon career... I used to dial into bulletin boards when

I was back in England. I moved to Sheffield and asked if anyone know of

a local one. Someone suggested I give Avalon a try and I was hooked. I

can't say I'm much good, I just don't have the time and energy to create

all the macros and keep on top of which herbs cure which ailments and the

like but I enjoyed the interaction and the puzzles and questions. The

whole fantasy idea basically.


I left Sheffield and in the end it was too expensive to dial in, meanwhile

a new job brings new technology and the internet, I had my character account

transferred down to London. Quite an eye opener since people were way more

advanced than on Sheffield.


Anyway, I decided there were better ways to spend my money and finally

dropped out, though I do pop on from time to time, I still like the idea

of the game. Now I'm living in the US, moved here in 1996 and am really

enjoying my life out here and still dream of running a MUD myself and

although got quite far in developing one, never really got it up and running

before real life things got in the way(like a wonderful son :) )


I remember some others players with fondness, others with hatred, and I

still think its funny that Macros got a mardy-on because I took his GF

out to dinner :D


I'm still using\"nelgin\" to this day, once if you did a search on Google I'd

be the only person who shows up. I first logged in with my real name\"Nigel\"

but someone said\"that name doesn't suit the game- change it\" - that's the

first thing I came up with.


I'm pretty sure most of you don't particually care but there it is for the record.


Respectfully submitted,

Nelgin/Nigel
