True story, no really, sung to the tune of Lyrics :"The Ballad of Jed Clampett" by Paul Henning - Beverly Hillbillies Lyrics

--- Quote ---Come and listen to a story about a Paladin named Blabb
A poor knight in armor(multi-colored and olive drab),
Then one day she was whackin some undead,
And up through the ground came a bubblin goo.

Namer that is, Deep Red, Foul Deeping Ooze.

Well the first thing you know ol Blabber's in a jam,
Healer Merc said "Blabb I'm gonna have to scram"
Said "If you were smart you'd do the same as me"
And she turned her tail to run and headed out to sea.

Hits for 8k, Million hit points.

Well Blabber gave it a shot, popping Defensive disc in time,
Scoring hit after hit but barely denting that dang slime,
But with Lay on Hands, some crits, couple self procs, and some Luck,
She just barely managed to kill that greasy slimey schmuck.

Paladin that is. Sit and Med, Take your boots off.
Merc you can come back now, Y'hear!

--- End quote ---


I started playing about 10 years ago. Can't believe I'm still playing all this time later. Anyway, I played a halfling, wasn't my druid that I have now, but a different one. About halfway through Misty Thicket is the wall. I thought I was so brave when I made it to the wall, but I was always deathly afraid to go past it. I look back on that and laugh how stupid it was, but that was the game back then.

My first real character was the wood elf ranger Nolrog, which I adopted as my moniker. Nolly is still around today (that first halfling is not though) and only played rarely. I have fond memories of running around Greater Faydark with tons of other people, killing orcs and camping our way through Crushbone. Getting a Throne Room group, that was the best. So much fun from those days, and that's one of the reasons why I play on the progression servers when they come out.

** Warning: It's been cencored and I think it's okay, but I'm not 100% sure if it abides by this site's terms and conditions. My apologies if it doesn't.
