Hey all, I'm Corey.
I guess I'm playing RO again lol. I've been sort of shopping around for servers that cater to my values, this seems to fit pretty nicely so far. I ultimately look for a vanilla/lore friendly experience. I'm turned off by ridiculous wings and heavy customization, I find that it just adds too much clutter and noise on the screen and subtracts from the overall experience. I haven't seen any of that, everything seems so nostalgic so I may stick around.
A bit about me and my qualifications: I was probably about 15 or 16 when I first played RO on the official servers as soon as they opened the beta testing in 2003(?). I was really discouraged by the overwhelming amount of people and I learned about private servers, at the time they were sort of a new thing. The first one I ever played on was "imdRO" which literally stood for "International Mattress Discounters RO" because the Admin ran the server out of his work place. I jumped around from place to place, meeting new friends, a few have remained in my life to this day. I've been a part of GM teams, and was a co-admin on a couple for several years (and honestly never want to do that again, not because I didn't enjoy it, but I'm unable to commit with my current lifestyle) Hats off to those of you who serve and keep the place running - it can be both challenging and very rewarding.
My favorite things include, but are not limited to: black and white art (I might post some of my own at some point), tattoos, metal music, videogames (you don't say) crows, deep concepts and theories; and of course technology! I am easily swooned at the mere mention of any such thing. I spend a lot of my time working on comissions for portraits, and I also own a small clothing shop, (neither of which I'll advertise here. I'm not that desperate 😛)
Anyways, I'm uncertain how long I'm going to stick around, but I'm hoping I can for a while, if not to capture some of the good times I once had, however fleeting that time may be.
I hope to see some of you in game. I've been known to go by the alias "Virt" but have sort of adopted a new series of characters. Look for me on Daestrohm, Loethras, Violeth, Felnyr, Gmolsh, Pthoen, Drende, Arcanu, Ibremu - I'm a dude but I also play on female characters because they just look better to me. 🤷♀️
