Thread: *waves*

    Smile *waves*

    Hi all... I just got into Istaria last night, and wanted to come introduce myself. I beta'd this game way back when, but didn't play it for very long. I've read alot about how this game has managed to survive through several owners/developers and such, and I wanted to see how it had evolved. I've played EQ and EQ2 for years, but just finally got tired of the drama. I tried WoW, to see what 8 million people found so alluring, and that didn't even last a day. It is just an UGLY game. I can't get into a character I can't stand looking at.

    There was a lot I liked in beta in Horizons... the music is still as heart-achingly beautiful as I remember, and I really like the crafting process. I'm still in the "newbie" area -- I think it's called New Trismus? I'm not really even sure if that's still part of the newbie island, or if I'm in the "real" part now. I'm still having trouble deciding on a character, and if I remember correctly that is what caused me to leave in the first place. The elves are just... well, not attractive, and that is what I like playing normally. I rolled a dryad, which is definitely different, but I'm having trouble getting a feel for her. I might just scrap her and be a Gnome. I can't decide. =/

    I'm wondering this, though -- does just everyone and their grandmother play a dragon? Will I be the only non-dragon? Because while I know having dragons as a playable race is what sets Horizons apart, it just isn't my thing at all. But I don't want to be the only non-dragon out there. Would make for some pretty boring roleplay.

    Anyways, if you see a Dryad named Faelian flitting around looking really lost, that's me! At least for now.

    Looking forward to making some new friends!

    Thank you all for the warm welcome -- I'm really happy to be here. Now if I can just make up my mind on the character race thing, I'll really be happy! I'm so used to playing an elf... I love elves... this is really messing with me. LOL

    Have you tried a satyr? They are close to being elf like I would think. Woodsy type and all. Not sure if it is the look your looking for or back ground or what.

    Try a Fiend! They are much more sexier than those elves!

    *laugh* I couldn't play an evil character if I wanted to. I've tried -- it just isn't in me.

    And I just don't think I feel in tune with this dryad I made... it's like playing a Fairytopia Barbie or something. I'm so easily excitable anyway -- I think I'm going to go for a Gnome. Anyone need anything blown up?

    And thank you for the klava, Awdz!

    Fiends are no evil really they are just mad more so at the rest of the world for trying to kill them off. None of the player races are really evil, some are just more stuck up and pissed at the other races more then others. Fiends are really the more uppity elf like race then the Elves here.

    Edit: From reading here http://istaria.com/races.php?race=Fiends I think they are more cold then evil.

    Ah, gotcha! Thanks for the link and the info. I don't think I could do "cold" either.

    I decided to go ahead and create a gnome, and I'm already infinitely more happy with her than the dryad. So now look for the lost and hapless gnome named Ellywicket wandering around.
