So.... the million gem question of course is, "Am I back?" You know, I can't really say for certain. I've logged in, spoken with some folks, and of course, that's always the question I've been asked.
It's interesting to see the impact one positive player can have on others. When I couldn't give these players a definitive answer to their question about my return, many were a bit disappointed. One player even told me that my return gives her hope that the game will get better. I found that really interesting and really flattering. I had never met her before that I could recall and she confirmed as much. She went on to say that she was sad when I left the last time, but seeing me in Elderine really got her excited, that if I've returned, it must be a sign of good things to come. Wow, that's a lot of pressure!
I've been asked a bunch about the merge, what my thoughts are on it, and where I plan to go. Sadly, again, I don't have much of an answer. As of this day, I'm signed up for Isya, but I've been asked by a few friends, old and new, to join them in Pagel. It's such a hard choice.
Bijou has always been home to me. While I have "vacationed", of sorts, on other servers, I've always come back to where my heart was, the lovely jewel of Bijou, the one server that has truly stood the test of time. It's truly amazing that so many old players still reside here, nearly 8 years after the server opened!
I've run into a few familiar faces, which is always nice. In Bijou, we have a buffing machine by the name of fluffytails that's always, and I mean ALWAYS in Elderine, happily buffing newbies and veterans alike. Most times without even being asked. It was really nice to see this friendly Guardian still doing what she loves after so many years. If there's one constant in Bijou, I honestly think it's her. Much praise to you fluffy for being that beacon of safety in Elderine. May you continue to do what you love. While we aren't close friends, I've always had much admiration for someone as selfless as she. If we end up on separate servers, I will feel some sadness, definitely.
Pressed for time today, so I'll post again later....
Bye for now,
