Hi PIF!

Hey PIF!

It's been really quiet here! What have people been up to? Gaming, life, family.... stuff?

I play Diablo 3 again, play taxi to my 13 year old and bake cupcakes! My life is not terribly exciting and I'm ok with that. :D

Moo.

Flamethrowers are proof that somewhere, sometime, someone thought to themselves "You see those people over there? I sure would like to set them on fire, I'm just not close enough to get the job done."

Moo!

How fortuitous your message is; I logged in today just for the first time in ages! I've been busy with taxes since about December, being an accountant and all. Just now recovering :)

Looking for a new MMO, and a new computer to play it on.

If I play anything, it's Tales of Maj'eyal, a nice little rogue-like with a reasonably attractive tile-based overlay, and a fun skill-based system, no polypiling allowed <g>.

I'm thinking ArcheAge when it opens as FTP, currently in alpha.  Or TESO when it inevitably goes FTP,  (released early and it's buggy, not unlike Neverwinter Online, so I don't see paying to play that one).  Or Shroud of the Avatar when it comes.  Either way, I have a month or two to figure out how the heck to build a computer - I don't see affording a pre-built one this time, when you can probably save a grand building one yerself....maybe....<fzzzt>...<zap>....

Here's what I do lately:

I work, eat cupcakes, and work.  Yep. That's my life!  Except maybe with slightly more of the "work" item and slightly less of the "eat cupcakes" item.

I don't really game much, but I fuss with a browser CCG called Rise of Mythos to pass time, because it's easy to play for a 10 or 15 minute stretch and leave.  I played Diablo 3 again right up until I realized it was boring me to tears, a determination which took me about forty-five minutes of gameplay to identify.  Now that's a poor ROI right there!

I support Shroud of the Avatar in a rabid and highly overzealous fashion.  I am currently attempting to record / narrate an audiobook version of Blade of the Avatar, which a novel-in-progress, being written primarily by Tracy Hickman, which provides much of the backstory for Shroud of the Avatar.

I'm going to form and maintain PIF Silvergate branch in Shroud of the Avatar.  It's my plan to make it as big and successful as we were back in Asheron's Call 1.  Everything about SotA appeals to me.  The developer is my childhood hero (Richard Garriott), the classless character skill system is exactly my preference, the fact that crafted weapons and gear will usually be better than stuff you get from drops is awesome...  There are a ton of really great things about it I'm very much looking forward to.  I really think I'm going to enjoy it a lot, and I hope everyone else does, too.

Still playing WOW, waiting for expansion, preordered my copy. I am playing hearthstone and enjoying it. I have discovered that by playing the ranked games I usually meet the average player, the idiots that have more money than brains are way above me. I win about 50 to  60 percent. As soon as I can afford sota I will give it a try.




I am lost. I have gone to look for myself. If I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

The good thing is that there's not going to be a monthy fee to play SotA.  It will be a "buy once and play forever" situation, at least, until the next expansion comes out.

Is there more than one server, if so let me know which one to sign in on.

Nope!  Just one server for everyone.  They have some really cool ideas that will allow everyone to coexist on the same server.

I must be really stupid, cause I cannot figure out how to enter the game.

Nope, it's something else entirely - They don't have the game open for play all the time.  The game isn't even at Beta yet, they're still doing internal Alpha testing.  Beta tests are, generally, a completed product that they're going through bug squashing and balance testing on.  SotA isn't finished, so they work on it for a month, then release it for a long weekend for testing by the backers, listen to input on ideas and bugs that are found, then take it offline and go back to testing.  They send out an email about once a week and the email will inform you of the times that they'l be opening the game for external playtesting.  Keep in mind that is really isn't anywhere near close to done yet.  When you play it, you are quite literally "testing", not "playing".

Hi Gang!  Still getting settled in here in Hawaii.  Gaming wise, been playing mostly a zombie survival game called 7 Days to die.  Its a voxel game like minecraft but with zombies and a more of an adult team.  Best of all, games can be hosted privately so you don't have to play with the general public if you don't like.  My wife, and a few friends play every so often. :)

Planning on trying SotA but after its close to release probably.  My brother Anosa on the other had is a founder :).

 :o

Hello Pif people!  My brother Vel, (Earl who now lives in Hawaii) mentioned that some of you may be contemplating Shroud of the Avatar...

If so you are always welcomed at our abode anytime.   I decided to pledge to support the game at Knight Level and have a comfy home to share with friends (yes you too Vel).

I hope you are well, and was hoping our travels would cross at some given intersection in life again.

As the logo movie mentioned, everything is Awesome....just got my second promotion careerwise for my new company JPMorgan Chase, family is well and work life balance achieved!

Safe travels good friends....

Hey!  Great to see you again Anosa!  You're still a PIF member, despite your time away.  :-)  Great to hear that things are going well.  I'm definitely looking forward to playing with you again, especially in SotA.
