Hello all. I used to play this game, from 1997-2001. I am considering playing again. Does anyone have advice? The last time I logged in (was curious) was about 2004 and it didn't seem like the cabals had active leaders, a lot of religions didn't have active players making it impossible to get into these really cool things.

I am speaking more like you feel like a brand new player after that hiatus.

You should definitely come and check it out. There is plenty that you will not recognize if you haven't played since the early 2000s. Lots of new content since then. It will almost look like a new game, but you'll still be able to recognize the same mechanics and basics. You have the best of both worlds, in that respect.

Currently, the lighties have a lot going on, so if you're looking for someone to hold your hand and lead you through things, you could join them. If you want to build something from the ground up, join the dark side.

Alternatively, you can join the middle ground, be neutral, and do whatever you want. Good luck and I'll see you in Pyrathia!

I had an elf in Fist. It was freaking amazing.

Fist skills are broken ATM so you can roll a griffon priest and do amazing at most things with zero prep. PvP might be tricky but there are no darkies to worry about RN so have at it.

Otherwise anything you used to love about SK is probably nerfed or inaccessible. There are plenty of new shiny things to like though. I think the game is still enjoyable after all this time.

Thanks for the info. I'm gonna play. Still reading over the character stuff to see what has changed. Most of the Imms are new (to me). I quit to focus on my last year of college (my GPA went up an entire point when i quit playing, lol). Now I'm 41. UGH
