Here is some tips if you do try out Classic: 1. Make sure you pick the right server. Sounds stupid I know but people make mistakes because they rush trying to get to character creation. So if you are not into PvP make sure, absolutely sure you pick a PvE or RP, if you enjoy role playing, server beca...

Re: Citadel Online Alternatives

As a long time MMO player I could see where Fel used features from many different MMO's to base his Citadel Online on, so you won't find any single MMO out there that will line up perfectly. With that being said WoW Classic is based on the original go out and explore different areas MMO (Vanilla WoW...

Re: Lost & Found

I read a story on storiesonline.net years back where the protagonist was I think struck by lightning or something like that. He eventually learned he'd developed the ability to manipulate/create matter and his power grew as the story ran it's course. He had some relationship issue with his wife/GF(...

Re: Links to Good Reading (Part 2)

Have two recommendations: 1. If you like MilSF with large mecha involved there is the Revelations Cycle by Mark Wandrey and Chris Kennedy: https://www.amazon.com/Cartwrights-Cavaliers-Revelations-Cycle-Book-ebook/dp/B01MRZKM95/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1539055688&sr=8-1&keywords=cartwrights+cavaliers 2...

Re: Mike Cropo (A Spartan's War Series) R.I.P.

According to SOL, his last update was made the day he died. (Updated: 11/9/2017, 5:22:18 PM) Lazeez the owner/operator of SOL was/is a member of Mike's website and he posted those chapters that were waiting for that batch to be approved. He did that and updated the notes to tell everyone Mike passed.
