I haven't done a ton to find it yet. I think, if I recall correctly, that I was either "Redfist" or "-Redfist-". Unfortunately the search functionality of the board doesn't seem to be working for me.

She's great. She's 11 now. I also have a son who turned 3 in April.

I'm curious about this game - is it "just limping along" or do they still create cool content for it?

Redfist, do a trial account for a few days and go see, OR don't be lazy and get your old account active again and just run around you old gimp, even if only for a month tongue


Rather then try and make a long winded post just go visit ACWikkii to see the new stuff and all the stuff you missed out on.



And one of you gimpy mods give the man 20 posts already, I demand the ability to PM Redfist! wink



and,

-Redfist-

It might be fun to revive my old account just to revisit my equipment, stats, etc.

I had 3 accounts but really only 3 characters I cared about. The rest were mules more or less.

Redfist - my original toon - archer. He was the testbed for my first ACScript macros back in one of the original Olthoi dungeons (I forget the name, sue me).
Ogfist - my OG mage. This is the one most people are probably familar with "out in the wild", as that's the toon I played with the most.
Snarl - my staffer. What a gimp - but fun! It was great being able to tank basically anything while poking at them with a useless weapon.

I also fondly remember a Barbarian clan I made. I forget the toon's name offhand. We would swarm outside of some random town then invade in mass numbers screaming "RAWR!!!!" and beating people with clubs. The one rule - no magic, period. We'd get slaughtered wholesale but was fun taking out a few people while we were at it. happy

Fun times...

So, I started checking out my old VNBoards account and looked at my old PMs. My last PM was 5.5 years ago. Wow... happy

It's fun seeing all of the old names and remembering friendships, etc.

Yeah - still in the AZ house with the custom movie room. What can I say, I'm a movie nut.

I loved that feature. Really made sure that a group of people could auto-target the same creature for more efficient killing. Even when NOT UCMing, it was nice for a hunting party to use it to focus attacks on the same creature.

happy Thanks!

I've been away from AC so long that I honestly don't care. If what you say is true, I only wonder why it took them so long to adopt? Oh well.

The one thing I tried to instill in the UCM community was a sense of respect. Both from non-UCMers towards UCMers and of UCMers being courteous to hunters. I had a mode in one of my mage macros to heal hunters who were low in health in hopes they didn't die. As you know, I had a mode where people were able to ask my toon to log off and it would obey. It wasn't about abusing an area or my fellow gamers (unless they deserved it!!!). It was about having fun with both the game and technology (I was deeply into both). Leveling was a nice side-effect. happy

It connected me with a lot of people and that drove friendships. I'll never regret what I did or how I did that.

I loved those... nuking all of the various golems (vapor, coral, diamond, etc.) along the inner north shore and inner west shore. If only the respawn were faster. happy

But then those dropped off once higher level tuskers were added to the game. I still remember running around the OP trying to find good tusker spawns. Then once they added tusker dungeons, there was no reason to do that anymore. I guess it just became a continual hunt for a better hunting spot. Luckily back then Turbine kept adding them.
