My life on Discworld

I started playing Discworld MUD sometime in mid 2005. I remember feeling nostalgic one night back then and I searched for a role playing game similar to "The Hobbit" on the Amstrad CPC 464 (from back in the early 80's). Lo and behold I found something far far better. Being a massive fan of the Discworld books, it was a dream come true. I still remember my very first day as an adventurer standing outside the drum. A player called Rizzo welcomed me and gave me a map, a few minutes later another player called Mross gave me $5 and "tipped his hat stylishly at me" which was incredibly cool.

It's been over 6 years and I can't express the special place I hold for the Discworld MUD in my heart. It is like a second home of sorts.
