Favorite Memories of RWL?
« on: August 08, 2018, 11:42:33 AM »

Some of my top memories...

1. Traveling to England to meet up with AdTheRat who I met on this site
2. FaF clan battles where we all fought to the death each round
3. Creating dynastic clans and arranging politics through AOL Instant Messenger, then MSN Messenger, then, for a hot second, Yahoo!, which died out as quickly as it came
4. Learning the hilarious joy of only growing food and being sacked all the time (Happy Pony Raising? Was that what that was?)
5. Role playing, but 13-year old me always maintaining I was the hero and never dying or being wounded or losing or being wrong and having a BLAST

What are yours?

It's weird to think about how long ago these memories happened.

- becoming Empress and being a part of the First Era where no one knew what they were doing
- becoming a RWL admin
- our RWL AIM chats
- designing and coding the Turbo themed rounds, like Pearls of Lutra and storehouse. Honestly one of my favorite things was coming up with new ideas for features (like the clan forums, Espionages, or Emperors page) and hearing about how they enhanced people's gameplay experience. A very rewarding feeling.  :)
- all the various RWL revivals over the years. While the "golden era" of RWL was probably within the first couple years, it was amazing how RWL still experienced surges of activity, like around 2009-2012.
- I think in the middle of one of those RWL revivals I gave out Turbo round awards, like Best Newbie, Most Improved, Best Veteran, etc. I had a lot of fun watching those rounds closely to determine who should win those awards.

Okay uhh,,,

1. Joining my first clan, VixenClan, which would eventually become Empire of the Phoenix, which I was in for YEARS.
2. Shenanigans on the forums with the Redwall Spamlords. Special shout out to Briar, Night Wolf, and Ungatt!!
3. When we used to do April Fools jokes on here, like changing the theme of the game or the word filters.
4. That y'all let me run the twitter account which I admit I have been slacking on but doing better lately.
5. When several of us had mod powers in spa and just kept deleting/merging things.

More Necro 'cause me

Coming over from Valhall to mess with the playerbase, only to stay because I liked the community here better.
Taking down a powerful emperor just to prove it could be done, then turning around and helping create the most powerful emperor in the history of the server.
Running full blown propaganda campaigns in Reg forums.
When full blown clan wars were a thing.

Emperor Holby was a good time. If it's possible to "beat" this game, I'd say that's the closest anyone has ever come.

That was so fun! I miss the MSN chats the most :(

For me, it's always going to be League, and the 3-6 hour runs. It's funny to think that "revival" was 11 years ago, and I still see it as new generation RWL!

2. FaF clan battles where we all fought to the death each round

Do you mean Duels? I loved Duels so much. I benefited from timezone differences to make elaborate kill runs when everyone else was asleep. I won something like 6 rounds in a row.

League was very fun. I think that was my induction into the oldbie club.
