    In short: I'm doing science, and I'm still alive.

    Currently a graduate student/laboratory assistant. After that? Wherever opportunity leads.

    I guess the closest I've come to being my character IRL was working as a pest control tech and using a thermal fogger.
    I can neither confirm nor deny whether I was cackling maniacally under my respirator the whole time...

    Lol, wow! If we never speak again, and I think of GR, friends there, or anyone mentions cold fire or coal miners, I'm going to picture you deep in a mine, muttering under your breath "My name is winter. The shadow calls to me. It needs me. I need it. All of the world depends on the black rock that I bring them." And hissing when you come back to the sunlight covered in the stuff.

    I'm okay with that visual.

    And grats on fatherhood man =) I'm in that club too. Been married for 14 years, I have a 17 year old step daughter, and two more 8 (girl) 7 (boy), future gamers. I dont dig up coal, but

    I do "mentor" young "Uglies" as a highschool math teacher. Algebra 2 to be precise. Mentor. Remember that ability they nerfed and made every leader give up in GR, and cause an avalanche of disinterest in the game? Yah, I do that for a living now, and they should have made it more powerful. Just like the real world, Mentors are never appreciated enough. XD

    I wouldnt trade it, or my family for anything though.

    Everyone else's turn! What are you doing now?

    FIENDISH THINGY WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN


    I tried adding you on steam but it says you are a private account.

    I'm saddened beyond believe about the closure of GR. I met my wife there.

    I wish there was something we could all get into together again, with a living and active staff to keep things working smooth yanno?

    Anyway, Lurk, Hecate, even smarmy a little bit, miss all you guys, and those years playing together.

    ~Bobby
    Netze the Pharoah Mummy
    Storyguide_Shinerbob
    Jeremiah the Lich
    Puzz the Sphinx
    Murder the Ghoul
    Maybe a vampire at some point too
    Someone named Samaurant maybe?

    Rest in piece yous guys.

    Yes! Finally Lurekus last ambition has come to fruition. He destroyed itself by trying to destroy Uthrol. It took ... a decade, but his dream will finally come true! Har Har Har Har!



    What a big damn part of my life this game was. Definitely an experience. Met some great people here. Had immense fun.

    Yeah... it's been a long time since I really played the game, though there was regularly that thought in my head: "Maybe I should log back in on Nads again?"
    Nadriel the Hydra, Coranth the Wyvern... a couple dozen other lesser characters that never really panned out. It's where I picked up my love of actual roleplaying, though I don't really seriously roleplay that hard these days. Too busy working!

    I don't think I really played the game in its prime, because I remember hearing about events that had happened from before I'd played, but still... GR was a big part of my life, and I hate to see it go.

    Because it's where I met my wife. For those curious, Kitiy and I live together now. TECHNICALLY not married, but might remedy that next year...

    Maybe I really will log in, just wander around for a bit... Shame I never did put in the effort to reach T7, but by the time it was even possible for me to reach it, the game was already fizzling out. At some point I remember Artair was wanting to offer me Rakshasa, but by then I'd stopped playing and wasn't particularly interested in returning since nobody really played the game anymore.
    And it would mean de-tiering and re-tiering over to Basilisk, when I already needed so much grinding to hit the level requirement for T7 (assuming I had it right back then, but I don't remember what it is now).

    I think I'll just say I was happy as a Hydra. It was fun to RP, and if I'd really put effort into it, I could have mastered having three attacks and Haste to spam all three of them for the themed fun of being a Hydra. If I had changed to any other WM tier, I would have missed the extra heads.

    I'd love to see GR rebooted with a fresh game world, supported by a dev to keep events and stories going. Maybe revamped game systems, or at least robust help files...
    Hell, if 20-40 people were committed to playing GR, I'd totally try to play it at least on weekends again!

    Because what really killed it for me was that nobody was around. It's hard to care about being a better Hydra when there's nobody around to fight.

    I will be playing until the end, if anyone wants to come cause mayhem with Smarmy. Also, if anyone in Scoundrel's lair has anything in their personal room (magical items) that they want retrieved before the lair collapses, let me know and I can have Korky go get it with you, to disarm the traps along the way. No judgement on getting items before the game goes down. It's nostalgic.

    I loved playing Smarmy. She was an expression of my alter-ego merged with some lunacy and an infantile outlook. I also played Korky, Scoundrel, Saffire, Yelpi, and a few other lesser characters. I tried. And tried, and tried. Then the game finally collapsed. I played for the interactions with other players, and my love of creating things (Korky, Yelpi, Saffire, and Scoundrel). I will miss so many of you players who have crossed my path in this game, especially Kava, Levidium and Cedextra. I sit not knowing what to do with my GR gametime. Sad, but expected. This could have been an epic game, if only the powers that controlled it would have invested some attention in it.

    Rest in Pieces of game-code, GR.

    Feels like a very "we've tried nothing and we're all out of ideas" kind of shutdown, but hey. Good times and good memories. Glad I came back for a little bit before everything went away, but will be weird not to have the ability to fire up GR every so often when I feel like killing some time/uglies. Surreal to think this game has been of some significance in my life for over a decade. Thanks for all the memories, y'all.

    I just now changed my name on Steam to make the account easier to recognize for anyone that wants to add me/those that were already added and maybe forgot who the account belonged to https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198076209705/

    Thank you to all who knew me through some of the cringiest years of my adolescence and still like me for some reason, lol.
    I'm sure we've all gone through a lot of changes since GR's peak. It would be nice to catch up and reintroduce ourselves somehow.
