Hi to everyone in MapleRoyals. My stay in MapleRoyals was brief, but because of the experiences I have made and shared with others during my brief stay here, I have a lot to say; so this is going to be long, so just skip to the tl;dr at the bottom if you don't want to read through everything. First, I want to thank everyone wholeheartedly for all the fun times I had with you guys. Some of you guys may know me as the Teddy Bear Coconut in Heroes, to some the Naruto Dattebayo in Legends, to some the Lubly Prideful in Lubs, and to majority, you may know me as the one and only Pridefui in Synergy (or the dude who sold zhelms). As to all things, my Story in MapleRoyals is just about finished. My journey has come to an end and thanks to everyone in MapleRoyals the journey has been a blast. As some of you may know, I started this server with Amy (Momorii) at late October. I have been playing League of Legends for the last 3 years, and Amy and I were getting tired of League. As Amy and I were talking about the old days of Maplestory back in GMS, I had the idea to search out a private server with a version that was closest to the days we were playing Maplestory. And from there, Amy and I joined the awesome community of MapleRoyals; although, the community was a bit small when I first started, it grew on me. Our initial intention was to stay for a week or two to get a taste of the "good ol days of MS", but like GMS, we were drawn towards the game, but stayed for the community and ended up staying for months. However, as of late, I am not motivated to login as much anymore. Every time I train or go hunt a boss, it feels like a chore. That is my signal to move on. During my stay here in this server I have got to know many people here. However, a few people comes to mind that really impacted my stay in this server and was part of the reason why I stayed longer than I intended to, and I want to thank them here in this thread for my last words. Lloyd. Yes, I am guilty that I have not read the rules when I first started playing. My first memory of Lloyd was a warning he gave me for saying a racial slur, instead of a 3 day ban. (I read the rules from top to bottom twice after the warning and tried to live as a law abiding citizen of MR) From there I remember Lloyd crashing Amy and my wedding walking in the pew next to us. As that was happening, I was cracking up in Skype. True Story. Lloyd was also the bridge that connected Amy and me to the community of MapleRoyals by inviting us to a major guild at the time, Lubs. By staying in Lubs, we started to make connections with other people which convinced us to stay and continue playing. Thanks for making all this experience I had in MapleRoyals possible Lloyd. Ty (Dick/Hacker). Ty was the one that invited Amy and me into Synergy. My stay in Synergy was a fond one. A guild filled with individuals that were around the similar age group allowed us to relate and share a lot of interests, hobbies, and different viewpoints together. It is where I got to truly know some people in MapleRoyals as many of them were at similar age as me. I remember how we both knew each other's names despite never talking to each other. All the times we would crack jokes and talk in Skype while we were killing Zakum does bring a smile every now and then when I remember them. As a bonus, I did see Ty in person during his visit in LA and smoked him out. Holler if you ever visit LA and I’ll smoke you out again. Don’t be a dick, and we’ll continue to talk on Skype! Annie (Persephone/Zyrcophynt) . Annie was also one of the first people I met in Royals. We were both out in a Russian Roulette event, but due to the small size of the server at the time, the GM’s allowed us to stay in the bottom and spectate. I remember sitting next to her and said something along the lines of, “Hi, I’m Prideful and I’m awesome.” I admit that I lived up to that and stayed awesome. I remember all the BF’s, skellies, we trained together with Amy, as we worked up our way to 4th job. Later on, Annie was one of the core group of people I regularly bossed and chatted with (Zak, Papulatus, Pianus). I still reminisce those days from time to time and think those were days where I had the most fun in my time at MapleRoyals. Thanks for all the good times Annie. Mark (Mighty). My first memory of Mark was him helping kill Crow with Ty at the request of Amy, so Amy and I can train on Himes. Later on as I transitioned to killing BF more frequently, I saw Mark more frequently as he would kill BF around the same time as I did. Although I did not know Mark too well when I started, Amy and Mark knew each other from GMS days and that helped bridge the gap between two of us. As I got to Shadower, he was one of my main motivations to train and stay ahead to reach #1 Thief ranking at one point. It was during those times where we bossed together as we Skyped(Amy, Annie, Mark and me) where I look back fondly. With every boss we killed I remember Mark would cycle through his NX look ranging from a Teddy Bear to a Golden Poop. Our days included our daily Pap quest to kill Pap, keeping check on Pianus spawn times, then generally dicking around in Free Market before we called it a night. Best of luck in the future Mark. Robb (Robb/Gimli). My first memory of Robb was us smegaing the entire Pokemon theme song. I’m pretty sure it did annoy some people, and for some people they thought it was funny. But, at that moment I was enjoying myself and buddied you right after. Robb was one of the couple people I actually got to know and chat pretty often in Lubs. We talked about random stuff ranging from relationships to basketball and more. Good times were had. I’m going to miss those chats. I only wish Robb the best. Btw, Utah Jazz sucks.

You guys know who you are. I will still be on Skype and check the forums from time to time. I will even go on and drop by every now and then, but for the most part I am done. The next part is a compilation of all the screenshots I have taken over the duration I played in MapleRoyals. Some of them you may have already seen in the Latest Accomplishment thread, but I’m going to go ahead and put everything I have saved. The screenshots I have posted are few of the many memories I have made in MapleRoyals. The screenshots are ordered chronologically.
