In all the years I have been playing this game, it never occurred to me to post anything here in the forums. Mainly I've been a silent observer, gleaning information here and there while indulging in the occasional drama or doom thread. Why break the silence now? Hmmm... Allow me to explain.
With each of the three servers I have called home (four if you count Tharashk) I never really got to know the community very well. I would PUG now and then, yet I would normally stick to a small grouping of folks that I felt comfortable with. After being here on Cannith for a bit, I felt it would only be prudent to become acquainted with the server I now consider my homebase.
I transplanted here roughly in May 2012 as the result of Grakulen's weekly livestream show featuring DDO on MMORPG.com's Twitch TV channel. His group looked like they could use a Rogue and so I created one on Cannith. The show had a good run, but sadly had to come to an end. Leadership of the guild that was created was given to me and I decided that Cannith would be my main server.
During the course of the livestream show's run, Grakulen introduced me to the Insomniacs Gaming Community (IGC) who span across multiple MMOs. Upon spending some time with folks in IGC, I became a member. After a while it was decided that I was to become the DDO Chapter Leader for IGC. I felt it only appropriate that I would continue to stay based on Cannith, considering the MMORPG'com guild to be the acting chapter guild due to IGC's loose affiliation with MMORPG.com.
In an effort to get to know the community here on Cannith better, I have adventured with PUGs far more than ever before, mainly in the low to mid level range. What I have found thus far is for the most part you all are a great bunch of people and I sincerely thank those who have given me a warm welcome to this server.
A few fun facts about myself:
- I am an altoholic. On Cannith alone, I have nine characters of varying levels.
- All my characters are Elf or Drow. Optimal? No, but pointy ears are neat.
- Sometimes I like to zerg and other times I like to flower-sniff. Depends on my party.
- I've been known to provide guest passes to players as long as I have the points.
- My raiding is horribly rusty and I may need retraining. I blame all the alts.
- I enjoy spending time helping out new or returning players.
Are you still awake after all of that? You are? Well, I have some good news... I will now bring this lengthy introduction post to a close. Thank you kindly for reading this far and I look forward to meeting more folks in the Cannith community!
