Welcome to the Ark. I've been playing on this server since Day 1 and I must say in all my gaming experience the Ark has one of the best communities I've ever had the pleasure to be a part of.
Even the trolling on GLFF is lighthearted and funny...I hope so because I am one of those trolls
New folks don't be shy to ask for help...you will get it. Alot of bored vets sitting around with nothing to do but help the new players and wait for Helm's Derp to be released.
If you are in the 30-60 age range and like hanging out with older folks and a few geezers collecting social security then apply to The Meaning of Haste...we are building our ranks to get ready for the expansion.
See ya ingame
