March of 1993.

Gosh, X-D, you made your first char before I was created.

On topic, my first char was June 2017.

That was about the same time I first joined. I remember it was before winter vacation because I died with one of my characters before winter vacation and it took until the end for them to approve my next character.

I can't remember exactly, and I'm not actually sure how to find out. On my second, and current account, a penned gladiator is the oldest entry, and that is August 30, 2001. But I had a main character on this account that's listed when I log into the MUD itself, but not in my account on the webpage. And I had two other characters a year or two before that.

So although I can't nail down this answer, my first foray (but not real characters to me) into this game was in 99-00, but my first real character was created in either late 00 or early 2001.

I started college in 2003, so I think my first character was created probably around December-ish of 2003.

My first MUD character was created probably in 1996 on EmeraldMUD.

And then I sat there going "really? that was it? that's so stupid."

I still think the best closure you get in Armageddon is just moving on to the next character.

Actual truth: I started around the same time as the poster known as "John." Pretty sure that was 2002. I can't remember who my first character was; Willa or Narie. My current account started in 2006, with the character Landra.

This is almost exactly when I started playing MUDs in general.

12 years old, winter semester, the seventh-grade advanced math teacher let 3 dorky middle schoolers eat lunch in his classroom and watch him MUD. I can't remember anything about the mud except the currency was in pearls I think

Turns out the account notes we request has this information. My character either logged in or was approved at this date and time: Sat Jul 13 00:51:11 2002

September that year was when we lost the HyperNews version of the forum and got something resembling this forum.

It was definitely in 2002 then. I posted on the hypernews version, somewhere near the end of that incarnation of the forum.

This only works if your first character was made when Armageddon had an account system. Some of us predate accounts.

I tripped and Fale down my stairs. Drink milk and you'll grow Uaptal. I know this guy from the state of Tenneshi. This house will go up Borsail tomorrow. I gave my book to him Nenyuk it back again. I hired this guy golfing to Kadius around for a while.

2007. First character was named Theodoric. Everyone called him Theo. Played a bunch of warriors.
Modern concepts of fair trials and justice are simply nonexistent in Zalanthas. If you are accused, you are guilty until someone important decides you might be useful. It doesn't really matter if you did it or not.

September of 2000. I murdered some children in the orchards south of Tuluk before getting executed in the Sanctuary by a Blue Robe for not bowing or something. Suffice to say, I did not understand the game at that point.

March, a little earlier this month! I had -so- much fun, and I'm happy that I'd made something of an impact on others. I'm super excited to make this next character and pour in the same heart I did from my first. This place is a lot of fun, and I feel I'll be here a while!
