Here is a bit about each of the friends and enemies ive run into during my time here in arda. Everyone likes to have their name mentioned somewhere. Ill try not to make this too long... Canther - Canther is probably the person i looked up most to when i was a newbie. He was already seeming to be a legend in his own time, and I hadnt really even encountered him. The first time i met him he gave me the grb, which basically made me begin to follow him. As time developed I became great friends with him, and though he has departed with arda, he is still one of the best friends i have had in arda. His greatest talent was the collecting of information and the ability to keep everyone together. He was always first to explore new areas, and has died due to bugs more than anyone ive ever seen. His loss is the heaviest I have ever felt in Arda. Kerosion - Though i only knew him as Kero for a little while, Kerosion and i have had many great adventures in other lands, and i still try to keep in contact with him. Unfortunately some of arda's less informed citizens continue to slander him and his skills, however Kero has always been there for me and he is another i wish would come back to arda. Curly/Daekam - When i started in arda, Curly was one of the first people to guide me, and basically taught me everything i needed to know to survive. Unfortunately we had a falling out, and though i dont hate him as much as i do fringers, i still wish things had gone better than they did... Dawn - Oh Dawn, recruiting me for the Dark Knights when i was a wee level 2... she has gained 1 level since i first met her, but she continues to hop into arda for a few minutes when i least expect it.. Dreen - Unfortunately, I didnt get to know Dreen until i was an ainur, but Dreen truely is one of the strongest of heart men i ever encountered. He would always strive to complete his mission, regardless of the harm it would bring to himself. Arda truely misses his him. Fitz - Fitz, that wacky and zany guy. He was always so proud and vocal of the Meglivornth, but he happens to leave not too long before I join.. how ironic. Fitz has always been one of those enemies i always get along with, but am never on the same side as. Too bad he has that affection for good :P. I remember when Alanis got mad at me for being the first real Crusader of Justice. Theres lots of stories to go along with this guy.. maybe ill make a page for it sometime.. Kelthang - Kelthang, along with Fitz, are two of my best friends who are enemies, always. Even after the entire smearing of Edoras, Kel and i still continue to get along pretty well. Fitz and Kelthang though have been ignored by me for many months at a time.. i really should learn to stop ignoring people until i have a reason to stop.... Kelthang is another person who i wish would turn and fight on my side.. but that stupid pride thing is always getting in the way. Ismandor - Ismandor is one of those people who i really like and get along great with, but i rarely ever see him online. Together we did lots of stuff, but nowadays i rarely ever get to talk to him. Hopefully this summer we will have a blast..... Astrakan - Another one of my swedish friends whom i rarely get to see anymore. Astrakan saved my life a number of times, and for that I am eternally in his debt. Though, unfortunately, I still think he needs to learn to like my jellybeans. Fjant - Fjant is the person who finally got me motivated to train all my skills to 100 and learn to kill. His motivational seminars helped me learn that sheriffs are bad. And they must be dealt with. Though lots of people tend to hate Fjant, and even I dont always agree with his methods or views of the game, I would always be there to help him if he needed it, and he would do the same for me. Just dont let him get near your soup ;) Valerian - Argh.. Valerian is the cause of half of my frusteration in the game. Though the more sensible of the tandem, I think my ego and his ego are both too big to fit in one space, so i tend to not get along with the guy. Though, I wouldnt mind running into him on the street one day. Dravin - The other half of my frusteration. This guy always finds a way to piss me off, i dont know if he means to, or whether he just really sucks. I will give him credit where its due though, but I tend to have him on ignore half the time anyways. I wouldnt mind running over him on the street one day, preferably going rather fast. Lis - Lis is someone who I didn't really get to know until awhile after I knew most of her friends. Though, since then, Lis has always been a good friend and someone I can count on to help me when I need her. Too bad she doesnt sell packs at her discount rates anymore.. Talon - Talon, the person who is always going off for a smoke break, is one of my better friends. Always having wacky adventures breaking into the lab, he's always good for a laugh or two when you are frusterated with Dravin. Which is quite often. Canton - Geez, I know far too many people from Sweden. Canton was the person who really started to make me become friends with the swedes. I talked to him a lot when I started to get annoyed by the mud. Hopefully he will return soon, I miss him. Gerney - This guy is a real dick. I cant stand the bastard and I sincerely hope i never have to see him in the same room again. Zekk - Ah, Zekk, my successful pupil. Though I really cant call him a pupil anymore, or even take credit for training him much, he has made a lot more out of himself than I expected him to do. In recent days he has made an excellent tag team partner in making player kills and such. Unfortunately though, Zekk doesnt always see situations the same as I do, or, well, he doesnt follow me around like i wanted him too :P Damn independancy! Marthaon - I just felt like putting his name here. He better give me some gold for it, too. Chewy - King of Mud Sex! Allusion - Allusion was a fun friend to have, though recently I think he decided to ship off and ignore me. But he was a fun partier, and I still owe him a shipment of Cuban Cigars. Aurora - Aurora tells you: Hi, how are you? I see this pretty much every time i log on. Aurora is a really nice person, and i wish i had gotten to know her back when i was an SoU. Uinen - Uinen has a terrible taste in hats. And i swear that she is a demonic talking skull intent on conquering the Caribbean. Navaar - Navaar was someone ive known for a long time, but have never really gotten to know very well. He is a really great guy though, i just wish I had gotten off on a better foot with him at the beginning. He's also got a fun taste in drink and women. His opinions about swedes makes me laugh too ;) Wanderer - Wanderer has a good taste in books. He's also a pretty fun guy, if only he was a few years older. Though he has a tendacy to not exist in the same character for too long, i really like the guy. Uther - Uther, for such a long time one of my roleplayed arch nemesis's. I killed his Father at the battle of erebor. Though now things are different.. everything has changed.... Grongi - Grongi is someone I didnt really know until i joined the Meglivornth. Since then she has been a good friend, and a level headed person to talk to. I think she is convinced that Zekk and I are insane. Boomer though hasnt really been around.. too bad they didnt make it to Kansas Popovod - This guy i get along with pretty well in real life, but i can never seem to get along with him on the mud. Though i still think the best thing he ever did was leave the valacirca. Mornen - This guy really needs to update his web page :P Mornen was great as Erendir, one of those foes i really liked to battle against. Mornen though is quite different, but i still like him. Too bad the bastard puked on my bed though :P He's not quite the world's best bowler either ;) Tirven - This guy cracks me up :) He's really laid back and quiet, but when he does say something its hilarious.. a different kind of humor im used to :) Freddie - Freddie was the last of the swedes that I really got to know.. unfortunately he wasnt able to come stay with me due to... school of all things.... but he's really entertaining and i still need to smack him around for immorting. Gil-Goroth - Though not exactly popular with most of my friends, Gilgoroth was always the noble level headed rival of mine who shared a lot of similar beliefs with me about how the game should be played, even though he fights for the very wrong side. He represents probably the best example of Dreen's spirit than any other i can remember. Eloz - DO NOT PLAY THIS MAN AT CHESS! Though barely awake, he could still always find some way to beat me. *ARGH* wizards.. i still think we should lynch them all. ALL! Ohtar - I could not STAND Ohtar as a newbie. He was just so damned annoying.. *argh* but, after all that, he became a truely noble warrior and someone i admired. Now, he is a Knight of Dol Amroth, and quite innactive. Too bad :( Meri - Meri was always there to give me advice on all of my many problems I encountered. Though i rarely ever see her anymore, Meri was one of those people who is really easy to talk to and tell more than you should tell any other mortal soul. DeBoraha - Deb, the 'boring' girl that I never bothered to associate with :P Finally i got to know her and she turned out to be a rather interesting person. Though I dont always agree with what she has to say, at least she doesnt like the SOU either. Thats always a plus in my book. Rauko - Oh, Rauko the slippery Power, who was once my newbie lord. Unfortunately my mind warping beam has never been able to get him to be biased in my favor, he's usually a pretty cool guy. I talked to him for a bunch of hours when I was drunk in Kansas. But, he's always liked my games, so I have a soft spot for him (since he doesnt yell at me to shut the hell up when i play them). Plus, if you ever want to be humiliated in mud history, try competing against him. Curuntar - Curuntar was supposed to suck really bad when I met him, but surprisingly he wasnt. (Aelfwine claimed that title and wouldnt let go). Curu's actually a pretty fun guy in real life, and i wouldnt mind meeting him again. Though dont start pressing him on certain godtype stuff cases. He was kind of a broken record in kansas ;) Lily - I didnt even get to know Lily until the SF party, but i seriously am glad i did. Lily's fun and is great to talk to. Unfortunately though i see her once every three weeks or so now. :( Elendalas - Elendalas seems like a nice enough guy, but he always tends to make me want to hit things. He also knows way too much about tolkien. Update! Elendalas, for some reason, seems to have hit the level I am at, which is a sort of boredom where you reach a comradery with other players who are there. So, i actually talk to him off and on. He has a good taste in music though. The Rimsilval - Categorized as a whole, the rimsilval are sometimes decent enough, however they always seem to be mad at me for something or another, so we are never really getting along. Pepper - I met Pepper in Phoenix, and have always been friends with her since. She's nice and fun, and actually entertaining to talk to. Though i do still tease her a bit much. Ulmo - Ulmo is just a really cool guy. I met him in SF and really hope to meet him again. He also had to walk the train tracks too ;) He's a big wine drinker, but still one of the cooler people ive met from the mud, i wish i had talked to him a bit more when i had the chance. I just wrote all these off the top of my head.. ill edit it soon and update it with all those i forgot.. Drizzt - Well, I dont really know what to say here. I guess he has grown up some, and so now I can actually talk to him without twitching. So, Drizzt's an ok guy in my book. Just as long as he is never promoted to Power through some miracle, then god save us all. Razor - I had Razor on ignore for about a year for some reason I dont even remember. Razor's a pretty cool guy though. I guess now, for some reason, i get along with some of the Rimsilval. Hmm... .... ... never thought i would say that. Solomon - I started talking to solomon again after another period of *cough* ignoring him. And we got along a lot better. He's fun to talk to, even if he is a kiwi. Though, his mudwife on the other hand... well, I dont think I have said more than 2 words to Culfinglin in the last 9 months. Wendag - Wendag's a fun person who I stumbled into one day randomly sending tells to people. She's really nice, but seems to always be busy with some sort of school project. Ezekiel - Ezekiel and I originally got along pretty well, but had a huge falling out over the SoU incidents. Thankfully, we were able to patch things up in Kansas, and now talk quite often. He's got a good taste in drink too. He makes a fun person to talk to in combination with Tacitus. Farugh - Ezekiel's former roommate, I really didnt talk to him for quite awhile. But, after I started talking to ezekiel, i talked to him more too. Im still hoping he and ezekiel come through here in a month or so. Langor - The crazy aussie. Well, not really crazy. but, he is an aussie. He's one of the level headed good guys that there seem to be fewer and fewer of nowadays. Though, for some reason he clings to liking Seinfeld. and, as such, has a few too many suck points.
