Hello everyone. My husband and I just recently discovered this wonderful game called ArcheAge. I was invited to participate in CBE2. Since I did not know if my computer would handle the game I downloaded it onto my husband's computer. We were in the middle of moving homes, and were a little late coming into the Beta. My husband created a character on my account and immediately wanted to buy a founder's pack. I was unable to play until a few days later and we both agreed it is one of the best MMO games we have had the chance to play in. There is so much to do here that caters to all sorts of players.
We both come from different gaming backgrounds. I was introduced to gaming with an atari; this grew to become a computer and many gaming consoles. My introduction to role-play came about with DragonRealms. From there I discovered Neverwinter Nights (NWN) and loved that I could build my own world and host it for others to play in. This is where my RP style really developed and grew; and it is where I met my husband.
We both played in Neverwinter Nights until I got him hooked on playing WoW and Bioware stopped supporting NWN. We have played together in SWToR. He has played MWO and EVE. I have played PWI, Aion, Rift, and many others that I no longer even remember names for. I also do a lot of beta testing for games.
We have different RP styles, though the similarity is that we both like a story to be told, on-going character development and relationships. We both like to RP with the understanding that RP drama is just that, in-character drama. What happens in RP should not be taken personally, but let's be honest, as RPers we get attached to a character and sometimes the things that happen do affect us emotionally/OOCly. It's at that point it is time to take a step back for a while and let things simmer down. Before we were married we both participated in ERP. However, that is -not- something either of us is looking for, or interested in, now; it is something we prefer to avoid now.
Outside of gaming...we have a meager life. My husband is from NY, I am from VA - and we now live in SC. I am a US Navy Veteran, my husband is a US Army Veteran (100% disabled). Neither of us work and thus we have a lot of time to devote to gaming. He plays a lot more than I do as I tend to the house and his needs. I also like to play SIMS, though I suppose I don't really play since I mostly build homes, commercial areas, and characters. I garden (flower and veggie), cook from scratch (if you are in TS with my husband you will likely hear him praise things I'm cooking), read & write fantasy/sci-fi, and crochet & quilt.
We currently have a character on both Alpha & Omega servers. My character is Fereyn, his is Mezlo. Feel free to send us a message if you'd like. On the Beta server I believe we were on the Kyrios server (same character names). We are likely going to move to the Naima server since I read that's where this group of RPers call 'home'.
We look forward to getting to know you all, as well as some fun and interesting RP! ~ Beth & Joe
Please allow me to thank you both for your service.
After reading about you guys you seem very cool and fun, I would love to play with you both. I am looking into getting the founders pack once I can afford it. For now I have beta access. But If I do get founders I would love too meet up and do some RP. I have a long time experience in RP as well across too many games to name. Most recently GW2, and SWtOR.
Great to see that you're both so excited about the game! I am truly hopeful Trion will push through the changes they want to make to fix the somewhat broken end-game at the moment, because I was just as excited about the game as you guys, and know for a fact that it can be again later as well! :D
