Hey Midgardsormr,

I used to play FFXI in the olden days. I played beta and then migrated over to Midgardsormr with the other beta players. I played Herbi, a mithra thief and paladin. I played with my old boyfriend, a taru white mage named Tofutti. I was active on a female player's linkshell (FemmeFatale I think was the name) and also tried to start a role-playing linkshell named ElysianDreams that never really took off. I quit about five years ago.

Does anyone remember me? I recently got an Xbox 360 and was thinking about taking FFXI up again. Do they still let you renew your old character?

If anyone would like to help me get back on my feet in Vana'diel, m email address is lakedesire@gmail.com . I'd love to meet up with some old friends, if anyone is still around.

If your character has been inactive for that long, it might not be possible to retrieve it. I've been around since ps2 release in 2004 but I don't believe we ever met. Good luck though.

I remember you! You were the one who showed me how to actually equip the onion sword SE shoved in my inventory back when I was bare-handed punching bunnies to death when I very started out.

Fenryr here, started game in '03 on Midgardsormr...Been a while, I've been offline for 2 years, and moved to Australia and gotten married to boot...Had to lose my US account, characters deleted, lost 7 million gil and a 68 RNG/NIN main character to boot...Look me up, I'm in Windurst, started today with a new European version, name's Ulfgrimr, and yes, I'll be following the RNG path again...It's still my favourite job...*g*

I have no LS anymore, can't remember the last one I was in, just that the pearl was sort of orange...*l*

Yes, indeed Fen, it was an AnAdventure pearl. I still have a couple screenshots with you in them.

i played back then but have since kicked the habit(i disagree with how the dealer acts and the quality of the product)but every so often once a year or so i will hop on for a few months say hi to those i know try to make some progress on the 4 jobs i enjoy 2 of which is all gear that i never get to lot on and the other 2 just get plain boring trying to solo/get a pt (bst blu).

i would probably play again for a little bit if SE didnt mess with their billing i used giftcards to pay for service.

i don't really remember herbi but i definitely remember femmefatale and Tofutti! :) you can probably recover your character - they are never deleted unless you were banned. however i suggest you try the 2 week free trial first with a temp character - you'll be surprised at how empty the world is now :( /sea all only has 1k people on during peak times instead of 5k, and because the world is much bigger it means there's even less population density. a lot of times you can spend 30 minutes in an old high traffic area like the entrance to windurst and not see a single person :( pretty depressing.

fillupurcup i still remember how you completely **** over me and several of my friends, and then sent me insulting /tells! good times

I vaguely remember you Herbi! I had a Femmefatale linkshell despite being a male playing a male character. I quit a couple years ago. Good luck starting over, I couldn't do it.

lol grunion i remember you and it wasnt you and your friends it was mimithia or something and her mistake(i didnt rush her to buy a soldiers ring for 2mil all she had to do was take her time and read what she was doin) that i offered to help rectify but she wanted to be a **** so i dont feel bad. on a side note you were in the first dynamis shell i ever joined and much to your chagrin im sure you helped me out alot with advice that i listened to as a beginner that i used until i stopped playing, so thank you for that, my dynamis life wasn't as tragic as it could have been.

ps if you happen to still talk to mimithia and mskitty tell em i said hi :)

I'm still around and still enjoying the game. I started playing in October 2004.

Some of the other members of KoolAid are still around too, they all began the game during beta. The ones that no longer play anymore are all gearing up for the FFXIV beta, there are like 15 folks over on the KA boards that have all applied.

I'm friends IRL with a few KoolAid members, although not all of them still play. I started right after NA official PC release.

Also, despite the handle, this is Guppy and not Guppie or Guppi, who are entirely different players. Guppie started much later than I did (but ultimately rose to greater notoriety), and the similarity caused all sorts of confusion.

She probably doesn't remember, but Mskitty helped me with some beginner's questions I had many years ago, back when Battalia downs was still a popular XP camp for Lvl ~30.

Oh cool, which ones? I really enjoyed being in KA, there are still a few members playing but the shell itself is very very quiet these days. So many good folks in that LS. :)

Wow, I remember doing one of the promies with Cesaria back in early 2005.

Grunion, back in November 2004, we were in a group together holding Stroper Chyme as /BSTs from Capcom, Aniet, Babys, etc.

Biglos, I've seen you around and partied with you once, but I know of your notoriety.

Grandlethal, we partied a couple times, I believe.

My account's not active - hasn't been for a while, but I may start playing again in a couple months. This brings back memories.
