Hey everyone! Just randomly I decided to google ssboards / the realm and this page came up. haha I was in high school when playing Realm. Scary to think I'm almost 40 now. I remember SR very well, and Vini (shea) too. I used to be a member of the malcontents on the realm official message boards (especially during the codemasters days) I was probably one of the only giant thieves in the game. I think I was pretty good at it. Houserobbing, thieving out in the plains, and the days where you could kill your groupmate in battle and grab all their shit that falls off. I was pretty damn rich in game.
Anyone remember the CS lady Paula? now that lady was a BITCH.
I remember there was some suck-up loser on the codemasters forums and we all made fun of him to no extent. I even left an engraved piece of bread on his in-game lawn that was threatening. I'll never forget the police calling me asking what's up with the threatening lawn bread. I told them it's a GAME with PvP and that loser had nothing to be worried about. What a joke. That ended my Realm career as I got disabled / banned. Then we formed the SSboards and talked shit about the game.
I always wondered what happened to SilentStalker over the years. As for me, I'm a pharmacist in a hospital living a fairly mundane life. After realm, I went to play EQ and EQ 2 for years with Aroura (a realm GM), we dabbled in dark ages of camelot, WoW, and a couple others but nothing really kept our attention like EQ / EQ 2. Once we left those, she stopped playing online games and I went to Vanguard and Final Fantasy 14 but I haven't played any online games in many years now.
Nice to see all the old realmers here. I even recognize many names, including those of GMs like Esbet. Never had too much interaction with GMs in game because I stayed off the chat for the most part.
