So, every story has an Introduction, so here is mine. Started EQ in 2001 with Kunark. My then fiance raved about how awesome it looked, but of course I was skeptical. AoL dialtones and some time later, I found myself as an Iksar in the world of EQ. I stopped really playing when Planes of Power came out. Since then, I've looked occasionally at these Forums, and read about the TLP servers, but never had the urge to come back. But here I am. Near 20 years later and feeling that itch to play again! A free account to see if I like the changes ... I make myself an Erudite Necro. Good INT and I've never played in Toxx Forest much. But ... what is Crescent Reach? Can't change that starting area, so I'm assuming a new Necro town? Load into the game ... And I'm in some mines with a tutorial. Hm. Well I can get behind that. After so long, I'm sure stuff has changed. So I learn some basic parts of the ... holy cow the UI is strange and very busy. Ugh. I stab a kobold and trade a key to escape. I heard some other players talk in chat about a tutorial in the Plane of Knowledge. I asked a few questions, got lost a crap ton as I found myself inunknown territory of Crescent Reach, and with some guiding help, made it to PoK and Secalna Galnor. I'm actually glad I started with these Tutorials first as I most certainly would have missed them! So I'm in some basic guild the NPC let me into. I got a bag and a house I'm not sure what to do with. Next time I play, I'm going to head back into the Tutorial area called Gloomingdeep.
