Do you and your guildies play “Remember when….?”? Reminiscing about quests run? Fun times together? Or is just the old ones among us?
Here is a favorite memory of mine:
One night while running on of the Amrath quests, not sure which one as I hated them all, we came very close to a party wipe. Geoff Hanna and his Gamer Girl were still alive and sent my cleric a raise. Yay!!! Or so you would think.
I take the rez, but something weird is happening. I die quite quickly. We all try to figure out what happened. I come to the stunning realization that I just took a rez inside a Gelatinous Cube. The Cube had wandered over my soul stone and because of the death motif on the screen, I had not seen it.
Que laugh track. My guidies got quite the chuckle out of this one at my expense. We had tears of laughter.
I find myself quite nostalgic today after reading Geoff Hanna’s post. I was given a heads up last night while we were on ESO. Reading Geoff’s blog has been part of my morning for many years.
My friends are moving. I am so happy for them to start this next journey. I felt the sorrow each time that a possible sale of the house fell through. Enough that I resorted to an Old Italian Nonna tradition of burying a status of St. Joseph to help. I mailed them a statue to bury. I figured that all those Italian Nonnas/Nanas could not be THAT wrong.
I am happy, but sad. They will be further away. There will now be time zones between us. PandaGirl does not understand them moving. Geoff and his Gamer Girl have been a part of our lives for so long. She thinks that they will be gone. We have tried to explain it, but I think only hearing them on Discord will help.
This is a great opportunity for them. A new beginning and place TOGETHER. Not Gamer Girl moving to him, but them moving on together. Traveling across the country together. Starting a new home together.
I am really happy. But still sad to see my friends go. Even if I know I will see them soon online.
Hey, don’t forget GenCon 2018. Let’s plan it!
