Finally, after several years of suffering through satellite internet for connectivity, I have moved and upgraded to cable and can once again addict myself to this game. I started playing in 2003 or 2004, whatever the year was when the game first started up. Played a few years, took a few years off, came back to a changed game. Found a private server and got pretty highly involved, even joining up as a staff member to be a forum moderator. But now I'm here, trying to dump in an hour a day on the game and enjoy the nostalgia with an old school version of the game. If anyone else who played GMS or Extalia remembers me, speak up! It would be great to reconnect with some old friends.
