Personally, I believe..
One of the reasons that people are bringing up
OLD characters, (ones I haven't seen for atleast
a year) and no one remembers these characters is...
They all left with the hit/dam/old/new/pkok changes
(ok not all..)
I know alot of Old Timers (don't take that negatively)
have left in the past 2 years (almost 3) since I've been here
In case none of you know (or remember) I used to play Brew
I remember Ulric, Sharri, Mice (who still plays, btw)
Lemming, Ronnie, Craven, (more people
that Cyron listed) Windsong, Ix, Ma
There's a lot of players I would consider
"Legends" if only for the fact they were level 50
when I was a shorty and still learning.
I looked up to alot of these people.
I remember them fondly as people who, frankly
know the mud better than I do.
People I watched on Chat, bicker and fight RP-style
PK'd and RP'd, DT'd and verbosely subjected the rest of us
with their opinions and mandates.
And hey, what about people like Chante'?
People who play worse than I do, can't even get
from Tara to Agrabah without help, but sit down
and participate in chat and the social aspects of the mud.
Are they less of a Legend because it took them 4 years
(and 30 SL runs) to get from level 44 to 50?
I remember when SL runs were made from groups of FRIENDS
people who knew each other and who planned their runs
not a "Leader" who does a shoutout for anyone who can
fill the rolls of "Tank" "Hitter" "Healer"
and there was always room for someone new to learn and even fill in
be it from a CR, or one of the clique would step back
and let the new person hit (or the leader would direct it)
I remember having leeches that didn't do anything, didn't care about the X
XP or the EQ, they just went along for the conversation.
SL runs took all night not because of the ineptitude of the group
but because it was a social roaming of the area.
It wasn't "We can do SL in 2 hours flat", It was "Lets have a
great night of fun in SL and see if we can get to the Demon Kings"

I hate posting long things...
and now I lost my train of thought..
(Platform 9 3/4)
I haven't been around much in the past year
most of you can remember the incidents that happened that caused me
to see other venues online to occupy myself
(in addition I attempted (failed) to get away from this box)
and I am so horribly bad at remembering people's alt
(let alone actually figuring them out)
that i have no idea who is who is who is still playing
(hey remember Urg?)
I know Lilian's still around.
I can't really think of anyone (err Stick)
that was an established character when I started,
that is still here now.
Who was that guy that was a big cat that never talked?
I liked him.... It wasn't BroeknSpring.. someone else
Anyway, I'll cease my ramblings..
Much Love to Y'all

It is one thing to celebrate Legend's past through the LoP mobs. It is
quite another to become mired in the past. I have only been here a
couple years, so I did not see these good old days, nor know most of
the old timers. Even so, I think that there are plenty of very good
characters around now. If you don't believe me, perhaps you should take
a look around. Talk to people, listen to them. Don't just run away to
another mud because you don't see people you recognize. The world is
waiting for you.

There seems to be another thing we've lost...
...the point of this post.
