If there's one thing I remember from way back, it's the distinct lack of ego-clashing. It was always here in small doses, but not nearly as bad as other PvP or even RP-PvP realms. Frankly, I love how friendly and honorable your 'Fite' can become. Hopefully little Crow here can contribute to that in a meaningful way someday, though admittedly she doesn't feel very useful in Contenders at the moment.
As for roleplaying... I don't really know what direction to go in with a gnome monk, but that'll change with practice methinks. With the Venture Co dipping into the low population, I honestly didn't expect to see much RP going on, but I've already ran into a handful of instances just doing everyday things! Can't really remember any names, but it was damn fun. Whoever it was, sorry for being so bland!
So yeah, not sure how I'm going to end this. ...Maybe with a game?
