    Hey There

    Hey there folks. I've been playing the game since the day it came out, but just recently found this forum. That's the thing that continually amazes me about this game, all the communities it has spawned. And this one seems just as friendly and close knit as any.

    I'm a 45 yo single guy living in Pittsburgh, PA. I play both SP and B-nutz, seems like I go on streaks with both. Overall, I probably have played equal amounts of Single and Realms. For the last 2 years I've played HC exclusively. I generally like to play through the game, visit all the areas, kick the barrels, do even the stupid quests. I generally play legit, though I did use MH for the anti drop hack (back in 1.09) and I have used editors on some SP characters (mainly to fix "oop's"). I find MFing to be extremely boring, so I've learned to play with very mediocre gear. Invariably when I die and friends loot my corpse, I get comments on my 'crap' gear (Sigons Pally in Hell anyone). I'm staunchly anti-PK, though given the current state, it's not a significant problem (survived a trigger attempt on my L68 Necro last night, so I might feel differently had I died).

    I've read through the FAQ, so I think I'm up to speed with the group. One area I found quite interesting is the section at the end talking about Variants and Notable Achievements. Are these stories archived anywhere? I know a lot of the forums lost their histories in the forum change. Are any of the stories on a web page or can someone send them to me. Or perhaps some of the old timers would regail me with their tales. [Damn that new guy, he got the geezers going, now they'll never stop] Personally, my greatest SP achievement was probably when I set out to see what the absolute lowest level character I could get through the game, doing all the quests and getting all the WPs. This was in 1.09 (fully twinked), I finished normal at L10 (made 10 killing Baal), and ended up dying to the NM Ancients at L18 (made it to Nilathuk at L14, leveled to 18 in order to beat him). So I have a soft spot for unusual accomplishments or off beat characters. Stories Plz, lol.

    Well, like I said, 'Hey There', I'll at least be lurking here for a bit.

    Regards-
    Mark

    Yep, welcome.

    That "lowest char to make it through" is right up our alley here: You'll fit right in!

    For some crazy stuff check out the "Fartarian" thread, and for something not so utterly nuts, the arrowless Bowazon thread.

    There has also been a "silly build" competition, but I'm afraid it is wiped off the forum. Possibly it's still there somewhere, deep down, though.

    Anyhow, welcome, be carefull when the Giant Squid is around, and have a cool one in the EMB. :buddies:

    Wow. Sounds like you'll fit in very, very well here. You've done some impressive things in D2 so far--the ways that we usually relate our current experiences are either in the Daily thread--just look for a thread named for the current day of the week--or in the EMB, the local digital bar, perhaps the most chill place on our forums.

    Welcome and enjoy yourself during your stay (and massive points to you for reading the FAQ. Thanks!)
