@AgentDanger: I started playing back in January of 2000 and left and came back several times. Been playing pretty steady now for the past eight months to a year. I just get burnt out on most, but the original AC still gets updated monthly and with it being 13 years old now, there is just so much content its insane.
Very cool - while I never played Asheron's Call myself (I was still entrenched in Ultima Online at the time) I hope you have fun and that the game continues to live a long life!
I've personally moved on from UO to (and never moved past) World of Warcraft, there's just something about the community and amount and type of content that continues to intrigue me even many years on.
