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.
