Sujaal was just a sergeant.

There was no 'stop' command. God I remember combat stacking up and lagging until it finally flooded through and, after 45 seconds of scroll, you got to find out if you survived or not.

Oh! Here's a good one!

Sunbacks had a special attack move!
Just like the white winged dove,
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
Oooo,ooo, ooo

You had to load your stuff back into your backpack every time you logged in.
There is one certainty in Zalanthas and that is death.

There were no accounts; your email address was the only thing linking one character to the last.  During chargen, you were incentivized with skill boosts to use a consistent email.

You couldn't see your skill levels, there were no subguilds, and you had to wish up for a reroll.

Opening closed doors in the labyrinth was a good way to explode yourself.

There was no losing direction due to weather.  But the rooms around Red Storm had a procedure that would spin you around, at least unless you were guild_ranger.

City elves had a base of something like 170 stamina; desert elves had a base of something like 350 stamina.

There was no crafting, but I saw a skilled ranger skin a scrab and get a shield from it.

The T'zai Byn was closed, but on dark nights you could walk past its guards and look around.

House Reynolte was open.  The clan stablehand was a hybrid human-mantis.

If you hid, you couldn't move around and stay hidden unless you shadowed someone.

An elf shopkeeper in the labyrinth sold magickal components.
The neat, clean-shaven man sends you a telepathic message:

You have never had the urge to kill yourself, before now.

The Red Fang were a thing and my newbie self wanted to be one so bad.

They closed right when I got the karma to play one. :(
All the world will be your enemy. When they catch you, they will kill you. But first they must catch you; digger, listener, runner, Prince with the swift warning. Be cunning, and full of tricks, and your people will never be destroyed.
