How did you ended on this forum?: A friend whilst playing another game.

What interest you most about Embers Adrift?: I was involved in alpha testing a few times in SoL back in the day. I also was in contact with Tim and his youger brother (I think it was) and created some
artwok when they were devloping architectural styles. I also used pyrography to create a wooden map for them. I thought that that game had tanked and moved on. However if I am to understand? this is the rebrand? (which I am pleased to see)

So thought it would be a good idea to get back in touch and participate once again.

How did you ended on this forum?: Alpha Tester

What interest you most about Embers Adrift? The need for group strategy and play reminds me of the best parts of gaming as a kid. I love that it is harder than current games of the genre. I wouldn’t mind it being harder but I’m a glutton for punishment with this stuff.

Favourite role/class in MMORPG support
Favourite activity in MMORPG I love it all from grinding to pvp

GoT or The Walking Dead GoT until they passed the books. Walking Dead I have watched but can never make it past a certain spot before i start to lose interest again.
dwarfs or elves? Dwarf of course
Beer or water? Beer
Pineapple on pizza? The only thing I really have a problem with on pizza is cheese.

I’ve played pretty much every MMORPG that was come out since EQ in ‘99.

EQ, Vanguard (which this game reminds me a lot of), SWG and WoW was my favorite. I Alpha and Beta tested New World and sadly watched them ruin it in Beta for launch, so I’ll just pretend that never happened.

I normally play a melee DPS class, and I briefly Kaye’s as such during this last Alpha weekend.

I’m looking forward to the game and meeting and playing with all of you.

How did you ended on this forum?: To send feedback on testing and ask questions about the game.

What interest you most about Embers Adrift?

- The zones: I haven't been to many of them, but Meadowlands really feels like a real mountain valley (as opposed to an "obvious game level with checkpoint walls").
- Players get to connect with other players (as opposed to connecting only with the game)

How did you ended on this forum?:
Was a few years ago... I was playing on the EQ Agnaar server (as a dwarf cleric obviously... barrel rool ftw) and I was picking mushrooms in Kaladim in preparation for Luclin going live so I could brew Kaladim Constitutionals for fun and profit; someone popped by and we had a chat, they told me they were working on a game and I should check it out (it was still SoL back then)... Never did make much money selling those potions. In theory they're a good idea, who wouldn't want +5 all resists and +5 Sta in a drink slot? Anywho, either I'm remembering that wrong or someone on the EQ2 emu forums/discord mentioned it. I've been lurking for a few years now, just signed up yesterday.

Beer or water? Water... Just kidding, Dwarves drink beer.
Pineapple on pizza: I believe in a person's right to choose pineapple on pizza, but it doesn't mean they are correct.


What will you play in Embers Adrift?
Probably a Sentinel. Anyone grouped with me... Good luck, you'll need it. I'm bad at video games.

What interest you most about Embers Adrift? I prefer games with consequences, with accountability, and with a longer progression curve.

Kids? Two boys
Pets?
The best dog in the world: Khan the destroyer, a German short hair/pit mix
Significant other? Yes. 16 years now.
Astral Sign: Neon
Favourite MMORPG: I don't know that I could pick just one. I started on launch day of EQ so that has a special place, loved the crafting in SWG, the pvp in Aion, just about everything in Vanguard. So many others over the years.
Favourite role/class in MMORPG: I suppose it would be tanking but I typically end up playing whatever is needed for the group composition of the people I play with.
Favourite activity in MMORPG: it depends on the MMORPG. RP/crafting/combat/character progression/etc. I enjoy all of it.
Horde or Alliance? Horde, always. Stupid sun elves ruined them.
Starwars or StarTrek? I enjoy both but I would have to go with Star Trek. How about Babylon 5? :p
GoT or The Walking Dead: GoT. Very tired of the whole zombie thing but at least it is better than the previous vampire craze.
dwarfs or elves? Kill all the pointy eared buggers! Yar!
Beer or water? *GOOD* beer. Water is still better than IPAs
Pineapple on pizza? Absolutely
