My first play session had Pikachu and the joke skill-level indicators (right before they were implemented for real, I think!).

January 1, 1997

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

I believe mine was 2004... I can't check using the request/bio tool.  Too far back unless I'm missing something.

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.
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.

Were there approval emails back then?  Or did you just keep refreshing the MUD until you saw you were approved?

That might be a way to come up with a date for you older veterans, if you still have access to the emails you used to use back then.

Haha. My first character predates google and gmail. There is no more geocities to check the email!

At some point in 2002... I played for a few months before I signed up on the GDB, IIRC.

Early 2003 if I recall correctly.

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.

*high-fives*

I've been thinking about this a lot lately, since my 2009 Armversary is conveniently the same year and around the same time that I graduated from college.  So also, 10 years  :'(

I don't think Mos Def has ever played, but he definitely should.  I bet he'd play a mean elf.

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.

Second PC was made Feb 2008, cause the first PC lasted that long!
