Freeps, Creeps alike.
By the time you read this, this will most likely be Chief Guard Gothash. Rank 7 is under 400 infamy away and it's only through celebrating my future rank by taking flight around the Ettenmoors a few hours ago (much to the...err, obvious confusion of Obivious), much to the annoyance of the creepside, that I haven't yet achieved the rank.
So, rank 7. Most of you will think that's no big deal.
Not for me.
I'm Free to Play. I have only 2 corruption slots, 2 class slots and 2 race slots. I've bought no skills. I'm a terrible fighter (though I've noticed much improvement of late). And it's been hard, unbelievably hard, for me to reach even rank 6.
And I also remember, back when I first became a Monster Player, that I set myself goals. Specific targets, if you will. I had only 2. One was to get into CHAOS (who, as a pathetic rank 1 I saw as being immortal creeps), which I achieved (with help from Nellami) at rank 6. The other was to manage to get to rank 7. And I've done that. Well, nearly. And I couldn't have done it without you.
So I'd just like to thank you, all of you, freep and creep alike. In particular:
Shapcidrat, Nellami, Rafiky, Xunnang, Aktis, Ashtarsheram, Jasiak, Obivious, Krishtina, Whitestorm, Ilen, Xellor, Thecure, Katrindal, Fy, Jak and, in particular, Saenanthra.
So yeah, thanks you lot. You guys are all great, no matter how annoying you can be at times .
Thanks and I'll kill-err, see you in the moors!
PS. Thanks also to all the creeps on creepside when I went flying around the moors (something I also saw happen to Llik and to Buga on a YT Video) because you put up with me taking aerial screenshots of TA, even though you were annoyed. Heck it was fun, and I think I deserved a bit of fun in the moors after all my hard work, and indeed getting Xellor to 1k yesterday the first time we 1v1ed.
Update: Thanks to a very kind person who out of the blue sent me a tell with a code for a fairly large amount of TP, I've upgraded Goth a little with a few Class Slots and Impale. Perhaps more coming soon, so don't consider me a F2P Pushover anymore.
