Thanks, I already have a thief that I play with a group of friends every night. We explore way more than levelling. We try out new places, have many deaths under our caps from walking into a place we really shouldn't be in. I have come to a point where i have decided to take up a different character during the day so as not to outlevel my friends. I am sick and am required to stay in the house, so I am on during the day. Basically I am looking for some new friends to hang with, maybe Linkshell with during the day (12noon-6/7pm CST). Heh, sucks when video games are the only way you have to meet people, but I have met more great friends through games then through my school years or workplaces. So, basically, my goal is to become a bard, but goals do change as you stated. But I'm not looking to grind to 18 or 30, I am looking to meet new people and have a blast getting to know them. My character name is Fearce, look me up and drop me a line on PlayOnline if you're interested in hanging out and grouping together.
