Once upon a time, very long gone now, I hung out on some sort of chat rooms and communities on MSN. They too are since long time gone…
The reason I bring this up is because a long time ago there was an RPG community there, called Keep of the Necromancer (KotN for short). I used to go by the name Melanie the Sorceress at that time, and I had a great time there. Sadly, this was at the time when I at first started to get my severe winter depressions and during one my precense there just kind of faded away.
There were some people there I got to know and lost contact with. Some of them I can not forget, and I have sometimes tried to find them again. To tell them that they made an impression, and that my life has been better for having known them, having shared this once upon a time with them. Having weaved a story together with them was something I will treasure forever.
I remember that our GM was called Arthurian. Up to this day I am still impressed with how he managed everything. I especially remember and still sometimes laugh at the small messages he would write in the list of who where doing what, where.
I remember two ilythiiri (drow); Kalgaroth and Julienne. Kalgaroth was and is someone who I was deeply in awe of because of his writing. His posts were usually masterfully written, and when I talked to him privately he was a kind and friendly person. Julienne too was someone I used to talk to both privately and in game, who was a good friend. She noticed once that I was not sounding like myself in a post and asked me if I was all right.
(These two are the ones who introduced me to the ilythiiri and are the ones to blame for a love of that race. A love I have carried with me for over ten years.)
There was also a bard, called Mica Nor. Unlike the others I did not have any private contact with him, but he used to write poems about what the group did and stuff. I had a dream about him a few nights ago, which made me think I should write this post.
I also remember someone called Azalyn. I had some private contact with her, but I cannot remember much. I know she had to leave because she was ill, but I cannot remember any details.
If anyone reads this and either knows these people or perhaps also was a part of Keep of the Necromancer, please leave a comment. I hope that you are all right and that perhaps you think of me too sometimes, perhaps laughing at something I wrote or said.
