Sundren Memories

With the upcoming Vault Wipe and the New start of Sundren in a future time I thought I'd start a thread that everyone could make comments about some of their best memories of Sundren. Tell us about your characters, your adventures, your play with other players. We should really preserve Sundrens history, we have all worked really hard to create it. You guys get started. I'll jump in with some of my favorite times too.

Suppose I could lead the recounting of memories. Any time I logged in with Allan usually turned out to have some pretty fun rp. Whether it was him on official BH business, or mingling with the people of the valley in disguise, it was fun to play a guy who could be described as a tangle of secrets and lies, all wrapped in a fine suit with a knife or two hidden away.

Okay, for a specific moment on the server that I always remember quite fondly, it'd have to be the Sundarian awards ceremony after the city took off, and where the phrase "Special Elmer" was coined. By the way, I'd like to thank everyone who put up with the horrid lag that I was experiencing that evening, it was monsterous pain in hte ass, no doubt for many involved.

Another thing I think I'll remember for a while is how Allan specifically chose the "Samual the Merchant" guise to try and annoy James and the rest of Exigo... Well, mostly James, really. On that note, rping with everyone was fun, but there were some characters and players who really stole the show in my eyes, namely Fury, Fuzziebunny, Kit, Gamestar, Jhickey, Nezzerscape, and Memnoch. You're the ones whose names, both User and Player, that first come to mind when I think of fun and interesting rp on this server. From characters I found to be extremely interesting, to simply being fun to talk to both IC and OOC, hats off to you.

Now, I suppose I'll end this with the idea I've had for my next character when the new start comes around- I've had my heart set on a sort of spiritual successor to Allan, in the form of a pirate-ly character, like my original idea for Fang Boy was. Still working on details for them, but I think they'll be quite interesting.

Hope to see you guys at the New Start!

Although I didn't get involved in big plots very often I have a ton of small happy memories from Sundren. Top of the list would be the grudging 'conversations' my Elf would have with a certain Orc druid who didn't speak common. Listening to Elmer's war stories around the campfire (spontaneously in the middle of a run, then forgetting about the run because his stories were more fun), being taught legion tactics by Peridan, being in the battle for Sundren city and somehow living despite not being Epic level, having a duel with Kaizen in the shaharan hills, then putting up with his veiled jokes about my loss while i had to RP having no recollection, and lastly just RPing stuff which has nothing to do with fighting, fishing while chatting to Abbey on the pier, tending trees in the Viridale, or having clothes tailored while being grilled on my love life.

Many more ppl contributed to these memories, even if i didn't mention ur name specifically! (Yes badguys, i mean you too)

I have a hard time really saying what was my favorite memory from Sundren. I have on the whole had by and large a huge swath of my most fond memories on this server, across a wide breadth of characters. From my earliest time here playing as Yashedeus, one of my first NWN2 characters period. Through to Kyoko my divination specialist, who only hit level 13 and helped stave off the resurrection of Myrkul for a while, before being captured by the black hand and horribly magic'd to death by Clive.

Then I went through a couple minor characters, Rogue3 convinced me to make a Lathanderite, Anasath who remains dear to me as one of my favorite NWN2 characters to date. Playing someone who is as unabashedly joyful, care free and bright spirited was a nice break from the broody characters I normally play. Grinning Death also ran my favorite event with the Abyss line during this period. There was also Chione, my mega-tank who solo'd the Black Tax and a Black Hand character with her golem-powered armor.

I can say I enjoyed much of it, from my interactions with Lauan, Dain, Lasvi, Esmundo, and so on. I have to say though that taking on the role of the villain for that brief little period with Demosath was probably one of my favorite events. That moment where Dain turned around with both his allies defeated, beaten and bruised to see Demon-Anasath walk out of the shadows, grinning and mocking his failure to protect her, and them.

The philosophical and romantic exchanges between Gabrielle and Thresh was also a rare treat for me, as she was a wonderful person to RP with in her time here.

Probably for that reason Sundren remains one of my favorite places to roleplay, having the mortality of my characters exposed, and having to overcome great adversity is something I roleplay for.

All the nostalgia and I'm not sure where my CD keys are...

I'll give you 4 one of which was as a DM

Loading into the crossroads on Sebastian Rolb at some single digit level and running smack into an epic confrontation between a couple dwarves and Clive and watching his OP summoned undead whatever it was called fear them to death. Clive then coming up to Sebastian and letting him live in order to spread fear by the telling of said event. Having done absolutely no RP outside of whatever single digit level Seb was at the time, I was experiencing such an emotional high from it that my teeth were chattering.

The 2nd one would be the first time i ever saw Clive 'die'. Although I couldn't really see anything since there were quite a few people hitting him with things at the time as most of the server went to the citadel to rescue a Sunite priestess who's name escapes me.

I remember Saulus trying to kill Tigen with about 100 or so Zombie Ghouls and running to the side to avoid having some of the horde come down on me...right into Saulus' NPC and 2 very soon to be vampires...and then watching the rest of the event from my roommate's monitor as Seb got resurrected as a zombie.

The event as a DM was one I was just watched the majority of it. The final time Tigen died in an even't so no-one else had to. This sticks with me more for the after effect of almost making Lashvi cry after everyone else left.

Also...not getting XP from Saulus events :P

Exeunt Sinister

I'm pretty sure no one remembers me or the fairly insignificant character I played for several months on the server. That's not to say that I didn't have fun or found the experience less than satisfying. I'm just a reserved sort of person so I tend to have fewer interactions.

So, enough of the heart wrenching. I played this skinny girl named Eahmii Di Gulla who went by the nickname of Mimi. She puttered about rather innocuously with another character named Treena learning some magic and becoming a bit more powerful as time went on. All rather bland and 'ho-hum' stuff. All until she met Dante Swift.

For some 'God-knows-why!!!' reason, Dante saw some potential in this waif thin girl and decided against all good reason that he should take her under his wing and teach the little thing some manners, some spells and mostly the 'way of things'. Perhaps he found her quiet demeanor charming. But that's not what eventually transpired...of course. Mimi had a voice, and an opinion. And being young, which means she was still just in the last of her teen years, she thought she knew everything that needed to be known and no one, including Dante, would tell her otherwise.

Now Treena, being Mimi's friend and faithful (read 'level-headed' and calm) companion was ever the one to counsel a thoughtful and patient approach. Sadly, Mimi found that with Dante being much of the same opinion and that they both then appeared to have sided against her, she became more and more recalcitrant and surly. Poor girl!

All of this came to a rather sudden and volatile end. The political situation had forced Mimi and Treena from the city. Dante intervened and Mimi was granted somewhat restricted access; but not Treena. Mimi argued, she yelled, she said some things that were very hurtful to Dante, not to mention poking Treena in the eye. (LOL). Even though she was a brat, and by that time a very powerful brat, she realized at the end what she had said but couldn't say the words to apologize.

She was a child who had learned a very painful lesson. She lost two friends who she loved. She ran away. She ran from the town. (She ran from the server.)

Now with a new beginning, I was thinking about ....well, you know.

You know, I can't think of many encounters or RP sessions that I didn't enjoy. There were a ton of silly ones when Chime was new to the Legion and poor Bram and Brendig got stuck training her. There were a lot of shanagin's with those two and the legion crew back then. The dreaded toe and pike incident, misfired crossbow, the fire staff, all the magic lessons.... All of it fun RP. Michael was also great fun too. There was the mud debacle, all the gems, the surprise meeting with the axis of evil incident.

Later on there were the verbal battles with team evil. Diplomacy was hard to RP for a number of reasons but everyone was always enjoyable to RP with in the Black Hand: Lando, Allan, Hashart, Dante, Alex, and everyone else I am not mentioning. They were all great. I think the picture incident with Hashart, and all the RP trying to sway Dante to Chime's point of view stand out the most. Meeting Clive for the first time and putting Selas in jail was fun too.



Of course I can't forget the Aquor crowd; River, Sandro, Andrew, Dalian,Tyranus, Jacobo and Kyle. Each character pretty much brought Aquor to life. I can't really stop saying how amazing the RP on Sundren has been. It was a real treat for Chime to be hassle by Kyle, comforted by Dalian, put upon by Tyranus, forced to be open about herself with River, amused by Jacobo, and challenged by Andrew.

I know there are tons more people I RPed with. All of them wonderful and a blast RP with. Seriously, the players here have been great and if I did not mention you I'm sorry! There are so many people that make Sundren great. Hopefully I will get the chance to RP with everyone again and see the stories of new and exciting characters unfold.

I've accumulated a lot of pleasant (and some not-so-pleasant) memories from this server over the years. Clearly, many of them have been on James (being my main for the past . . what, 3 years? Good grief.

He was designed as a means to an end, and from his origins as a traveling anthropologist I made to get a friend interested in the server, he simply expanded beyond his scope to become a conduit for a magical millionaire who consumed all my playtime.

But those are recent history.

My fondest memories of the server tie back to:
a pyromaniacal druid who acquired a bounty for practicing his religion (on the side of a farmer's barn);
a mute desert-tribesman who ventured with a paladin and a moon-lover into the Mossdale and fought with archmagi for his prize (and lost);
but by far, and most fondly remembered, were the adventures of a group of silk-masked shadows, mundane save for a few prayers and a devil. Between Rose Thimblefoot, Kirk Carshby, Talon Fensbane, Alyrian Eldeas, Sylas Dresend, and others lost to history, I had a blast with our scoundreling adventures. From stealing form (and exploding) the Exigo Factory (Chione's golem armor had to come from somewhere, even if we later swore about it) and evacuating the Under Aquor caves to the safety of the City by boat, to paroling the sewers and city for unregistered 'professionals' (back when they were the Sewers) and running Team-Rogue assaults on Veritas Mountain, I've had innumerable anecdotes from the Black-Tax that are going to be hard to surpass. There is just something awesome about four rogues phasing in and out of sight on their way up a trap-laden mountain, dropping most mobs in under a round, and forming a flanking-star capable of some ungodly number of d6 per round on anything that survived. Heck, three of us survived for the finale with the balors during the Battle for Sundren (I took down a bunch (^_^), even if we never got official recognition for it, the damned political muppets (<_<))

Much as I've doted on Exigo these past few years, the Black-Tax has always been the crew I've intended to return to eventually.
(Helps that they actually have 'a crew', instead of 'a lone wonky archmage of economics')

And, while I never played a character in the faction, the awesome collaboration from the Black Hand over the years: tackle-hugging a particular vampire and getting a plushy 'signed', all the countless dead-drop and back-alley dealings, unstated agreements with numerous characters, that sorta thing; really kept my little portion of the server dynamic, interesting, and alluring enough to return to time and again, even if they never outright tried to kill me.

Not to say that the current players are lesser for it, but I don't need to reminisce about the person metaphorically in the same room. Even if it does include funny little events like my arcane archer's repeated clashes with a low-level Hashart; those were fun. No reason to share all of them. :-D

Cheers,
Kit

I have so many great memories it is hard to isolate one or two RP interactions. I have a few bad memories too and unfortunately they are easier to recall. Here goes...

The character I am most proud of is Cesar del Sol. It took me 26 server days to reach 20th level. I couldn't wait to log into Sundren and play Cesar. He was a Sacred Fist that fell and then redeem himself. I deleted him more than once only to have the kind staff allow me to bring him back. I deleted him twice because I got too emotionally attached. I attribute that to him being my favorite character and the one I invested the most time in.

The character I felt honored to play was Magnus. He was a forth generation vampire. I worked hard on his back story and made sure he played his obligation to his elders even when it hurt.

The character that enabled me to feel most connected to the server given my Central Europe play schedule was Angus Ironforge. I really liked crafting with him. I think crafting with him turned out to be my most rewarding RP. Angus was prepared to help anyone. Personally, I know how nice it is to have other characters help you reach a critical milestone with your character, e.g. making the nice armor or getting a custom weapon made.

I did not participate in many RP events in the last 7 years. I can think of five for sure... The most spontaneous was with ACORN. He pulled a handful of us on journey that ended up with an epic battle while at sea. Angus was 9th level and he survived the event. I was really proud of his defensive prowess. The most complex event was with DOUBT. His events were less about fighting and more about solving analytical hard problems that always had consequences. Finally, I remember playing on Christmas day with maybe five people on the server. I really liked how PnP the atmosphere felt given the small numbers. RogueThree and Grinning Death came into game and ran a great event for me, Mournas, PK, and I believe JHickey. It was a series of epic battles up Cold Climb that we all felt lucky to survive. No sooner we got a little cocky, we got someone killed and it was coal in our stockings that Christmas.

I've enjoyed my time on this server and I appreciated the time and investment others have made here to make this a great place to play.

Did I run that event? I somehow remember doing a black tax event in an exigo factory, but I didn't think it was for the Golem armor, I might be mixing memories.



Also; yes, much kudos is owed to those brave souls who dared to play evil characters. (I've always had trouble doing evil properly) Another memory that jogged was when I first made Anasath, she was tracked down by them, beaten, then dragged up north. OOCly I was like "... Welp... This was a fast perm." but then it turned out to be some super cool stuff where they tried to make Anasath do something evil using a servant girl... fun times.
