I got it around November 1999 from what I remember. The first copy I bought had an invalid CD key, so I took it back.... and again, and again.

4th try and it worked. I wonder how different life would have been if I just straight up got a refund the first time [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

Arguably it was a gateway to other online games and I've had my claws in something ever since.

November 1999, was a 16 year old nerd racing slot cars at the local track when a guy behind the counter was playing this beautiful graphic world. Snuck the parents credit card, went to walmart bought it, ordered up DSL setup the on.

First character..a female troll (gender button was small and trolls you can barely tell the difference) shadowknight named Djlethal (Limp Bizkit was big at the time....)

ahh nostalgia

I started at the beginning before it was full screen. Remember the first time I made it to the tunnels from Freeport. the feeling of adventure and unknown wonders was so great. it was my first experience in a mmorpg.

April 1999, was a paladin on Innoruuk named darkenrahl. I went red too lol. I had so many shiny brass shields looted off my corpses =/. I still remember takhisis, lexus, pychow, and a few other dark elf pk's that used to team up on me for being a human paladin. One of my favorite memories back then was the opening of Befallen for the first time, Mistmoore event with Mayong Mistmoore himself, and bringing FS weapons to karanas and selling them for a pretty penny to other players.

Good memories all around, I remember a troll warrior named Bgal was one of the first to be decked out from guk with fbss, silver legs, silver bracers, dual ykeshas and Ruby chest from Cazic thule. That guy was a hell of a warrior.
