Never fear the Squid again!

I came here after speaking to Asmodeus just to write a reply in the "Where have they all gone" thread......

After reading through the forums a little, I had to make a new thread (in honour of days gone by) to say that this still looks like a fantastic community! I don't know why this place has always attracted such a special group of people who have no fear in sharing in fun and frolics and calamari!

There are still some of the old time greats - I wont name people because I dont want to miss someone out and make them cry (like Durf - he's always blubbing when he's left in a corner by himself for a few minutes!! It's his fault anyway! ;)) And there are loads of new faces (probably have been here for YEARS!) who have added their own little special something.

It's really great to know that this place is not only surviving, but positively thriving! :) I am honoured to have had a small hand in the creation of this place and it is great to see when something grows way beyond its initial starting point! I don't feel any nostalgia at all.... mostly because nothing has gone... it all looks just as good as it was all those years ago.... and better!

So *raises glass with one arm round the Giant Squid* Here's to you guys and I hope you all have many more happy years here!

Cheers one and all :thumbsup:

I remember you... but you cannot remember me because I was only lurker back then with maybe 5 posts :smiley:

I still have saved SP Character Guides thread (1.09) that you started :wink3:

Your nick is familiar, I have seen the old-timers mention your name multiple times. I'm not sure if I have ever seen you to post though, because I have been here myself only ~3 years :laugh:


Welcome back! :wave:

nex.... that's cool! I lost those guides many years ago through hard drive failure! I loved my Werebear - I could play D2 again just to play that character again! :D

Drystan..... what has this to do with the squid?? Arrr, where's the ancient warning tablet when you need it? Have you not been beset by the squid in times past? I'd be surprised to find that my old adversary doesnt lurk here still! :eek:

Lprman.... I would estimate that I left here in 2001? Maybe early 2002.... I cant remember for sure! :)

Errr. Hi. :wave:

So errr. Just wondering what this has to do with the squid?

Hi Corrupted!

I feel like one of the ancients!! Isn't anyone going to offer this old geezer a chair by the fire and a drink to warm me cockles? :)

Gosh! It's alive! It's good to see that we're protected from the Squid again.

Welcome back, Spearthrower. Go, have a drink at the EMB, it's on Durf's card for all I know.

*No smilies enough for showing the surprise*

Speary, it HAS been a long time. Never fear, this thread will have them old timers out in no time (like me :p).

Not sure if you're back, but welcome back :)

I've seen the squid (I think...) I'm really confused, so I'm going to believe what you say. :smiley: GL with the squid. :undecided:

Hi Tom_S... my God - long time no see! From your avatar, you havent grown an inch!! :D

Still a member then? Why have some of Ye Real Olde Timers only got a couple of hundred posts? *confused*


Drystan.... There you go - you've seen him too. It's like one of those Arthurian legends right.... When doom approaches again (i.e. Big fricking squid) then doom's nemesis reawakens!! *sharpens harpoons*

First, there were several forum hickups, second, I for one didn't play much for the last two years, so haven't got that much to contribute anymore (save for greeting fellow old-timers).

Hey Stargaze! Great to see you! I guess if you no longer play, then you must be here just for the forum? :) What are you playing now?

<-------------------- Daughter :)

After you left there have been a couple of squid attacks taking everybody's post count back to 0. But nevertheless i was never much of a poster anyway.

Tom_S wow! How old is she?

Nex... that is so cool - a real blast from the past and you are an absolute STAR!!! I also lost that avatar many years ago... it was made for me by Freelancer.... is he still around? Wow, thanks a lot for that, it's made my day! ;)

Dark Matter - thanks! 1.11 now huh? I seem to recall hearing good things about it.

Actually, I dont have the game here... I now live in Thailand and most of my CD's are stashed away back in the UK. I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be hard to pick up a copy as many people over here love the game too. I can probably get one of those all in 1 pack thingamees for the equivalent of a few pounds. I shall check it out, playing Titan Quest has reawoken a soft spot in me for hack and slash fests! :)
