You'v probably seen me in game and IRC, and since it's a slow day at work, I figure I'd tell a lil bit about myself.
First off.. Hi, I'm Andrew
I play Lucyford on Fantasyworld. At work I'm on IRC under FordTwo (durr)
I played Canadia (75SAM/75NIN main) on Ifrit (retail) since PS2 release to sometime during ToAU. I rolled with PhoenixDown, JoiningOfSix, and BigGameHunters. My favourite being JoS, as it had an amazing friends-first gaming community.
After FFXI i played a few other MMOs but nothing could really fill the void. at least a year or so ago I started looking for FFXI pservers, and I found one with virtually no content (probably an early DSPT build). I played for a bit and helped the owner test things (hah, he even made me a GM!) but RL stuff reared it's ugly head and I'd forgotten about it.
Fast Forward to about 2 weeks ago and I started looking again. after trying a couple others, I've settled down here as it really is like a "FFXI-Vets Retirement Home".
I played along time and most of it is coming back to me from wherever it was committed to memory (I can still navigate Elshimo without a map haha!) so if there's anything I can do to help others out, please just ask! But if you want me to help code or something then you've gotta train me a little first haha.
Yes, I am Canadian. Yes, I do speak french. No I do not live in an igloo, nor do I eat whale blubber sandwiches.
Glad to have you join us Lucyford. :D
I had the MMO searching problem as well.
Could never replace FFXI not matter how hard I tried, and
said I would never go back.
But, here I am.
Couldn't stop myself.
It definitely is like a retirement home.
All Vets can never replace their first experience running through FFXI,
but we're always seeking it. =P
At least we can come back here and have that nostalgia and
remember all the good times!
I thought it was just Eskimos in igloos and eating whale. :o
