I remember when I had to swim through the beginning of Evendim because I thought there was just no way I could make it to Tinnudir.
I remember when I dealt with my first walking trees and I thought there was no way I could get through this game.
I remember seeing my first eye in the mini-map and the people in my fellowship asking a friend what was wrong with me when I just wanted to leave after finishing. "She's scared."
I remember my first time going after higher level Tomb-robbers while others were around because I realized I could maybe take them and they gave more experience.
I remember the first time I saw the moon and claimed it as my moon.
I love this game.
