So it's been a long while since I last played, and even longer since I played seriously.

Feeling adventurous, I logged my lvl 30 Mtn to find him deadbeat. Swapped over to my also deadbeat 26 thief and spent some time stabbing janitors and kittens in Sol to scrounge up enough cash and equipment to run Gal Vari just to knock the rust off. Along the way, I found a semi decent item I hoped to sell for enough cash to keep me rolling for a few days.

After a quick shout, I was pleasantly surprised to have a very generous character give me enough coins to basically solve all my gear and rent issues, but also pay for the lion's share of Legend rank as well.

Some are quick to say things like "Arctic is dead". My experience today reminded me of one of the primary reasons I like this game, and why I feel it's far from "dead".


Thanks for the coin donation. I'm not sure how long I'll be actively playing, but I can guarantee it'll be much longer and more enjoyable because of the kindness.

I would be curious to know how the shriners and black dragons/qwa kzar (or whatever they were called - team Lucas) formed.

Also, someone should shoot the old creators a note sometime, I'm sured they'd get a kick out of seeing this project they started in college still kicking around.

If by dead you mean lots of new content being added and people playing without being harassed then sure, the game is dead.

Looks fun, but I get addicted to games far too easily, I'm sure that would destroy my life, haha.

If I were to ever do another wipe on arctic, my move would probably be to quickly create a kender thief since they can pretty much get unlimited coins/prep in a short time, then make an evil dargo basher and go after the haste rank.  Haste + legend + legend bash -->  32 rp, plus ring ranks for can_fly/dev invis/sustenance/+2 dex

I don't think he really plays much either.

In any case, the current status of the PK damage setting is not intended to be a longstanding one, future endeavors of progress are pretty limited but there's stuff being worked on in an effort to find the best of both worlds.

The goals and ideas behind it are a thing that I've discussed with a number of people already and am continuing to in an effort to make the best choices for the future.
But don't worry, I still don't care about you clowns. :)

Some advise for you, stop wasting your time, the games dead. Sad but true.
