Yeah, well we have 31 currently on the roster and there are two invitations out to players that requested an invite = 33.

Our Discord has an additional handful of non-alliance members as well. We're slowly and steadily growing!

Be sure to stop by ship 3 B-15 and ask about the alliance!

Hello. I'm looking for a group to join, I guess. It's hard to explain. I had a friend that I've been gaming with since 1987, when we were young. He and I have been on MMOs together and all manner of games online since high school, and once voice chat became a thing it was almost like hanging on the couch together jawing away like we used to. Sometimes it was with some other people we knew, too, but it was always him and I at the core. One game we played the beejezus out of was PSO 1 on the Dreamcast -- we both even got the broadband adapters. I know we could have done the PSO Japan version in English, but never did. With the NA version we were so psyched about returning to a game universe we'd spent over 400 hours on with the Dreamcast. We both hopped on near the end of May, and it was awesome. But then he passed away a couple weeks ago and I don't know what to do now. I still game with my kids, and I still do some single-player stuff, and I'm not calling it quits, but I don't know how to fill the social void. We weren't hardcore players, we didn't like to min/max or anything like that, we just liked dropping down to a planet and blowing things up and maybe helping each other get that weapon or armor the other was gunning for. I think this group sounds like it might go at that speed, and it's on the same ship my character is. I have a braver named Nitwit who's a male CAST who looks like a cross between a Transformer and a pirate, and it's entirely possible that I've crossed paths with some of you on urgent quests and such. I've still been logging in every day and running some solo missions. His character is still available for me to hire as a helper before missions, and with the auto-chats he programmed, it's almost like he's still there in a way. But I know that can't sustain me forever.

Sorry to unload so much stuff at random all at once.

Hi guys I'm looking for an alliance and just left mine due to people who are mostly inactive. ID: Aetzer. If ever theres still space left thanks.

@Maddoc I am so sorry for your loss.

There is no need to apologize! Gaming takes up a large portion of my life, too, and real life tends to seep into the virtual worlds we share with one another. It can be so hard moving on when dealing with grief like you are, but I want you to know that if you're looking for friends and an in-game place to call home, we may be the right group for you.

I have over a dozen real life friends that started gaming together in the early days of EverQuest, including my husband. We had a lot of fun for a few years, sharing both in-game and real-life accomplishments and milestones along the way.

And while most of us have drifted apart and/or moved on to different games, some of our fondest memories still live on with us today as an unforgettable experience.

It was not until the Corona and moving across the country that we found ourselves in an exciting new game, isolated with little social activity otherwise.

I do not pretend to speak for everyone in our alliance, but our intention for this alliance is to be a place of support and friendship that lasts for the foreseeable future. Even if most of our activities and conversations are focused on the game, we value friendship and loyalty over pixels and loot.

We will probably never be a top-ranking alliance because that is not what drives us and keeps us together. To put it simply, we are here because we share a common bond through our love for the game, and seek long standing companions to share our adventures within this world.

We know who we are, and that we are not going to appeal to every type of player. And that is okay! We want everyone to enjoy themselves as much as possible. If what makes us happy is the same thing that makes you happy, we will probably be a good fit together!

You are welcome to give us a try, and I look forward to meeting you in-game whether we are in the same alliance or not.

@Ryiotz Sorry for the delay in response, but it looks like you have already joined another alliance in game.

If this is not the case, please be sure to clear any previous scouts you have received from other alliances, as you can only accept 5 at a time. Once you have cleared any existing scouts, please let us know and we'll try to send you another invitation.

Best of luck to you!

here comes a good ole bump
