In-between adventures, I get a painful hankering for reminiscent strolls through Moonglow.

I've been meaning to transcribe my experiences with the account recovery folks at EA for a while now. It's a thing of astounding wonder and hilarity. I have the fortune of being in a position in my profession to raise any of the community management folks, and had lengthy conversations with them about how remarkably bonkers the process is. In a separate conversation about this, Malicite mused that he tried the same, though didn't quite engage in the more exhaustive social engineering I had undertaken. I'd lost my account when evenstar passed away - she had held onto it for safekeeping for the longest time. I wanted to meander around the island, just to see if the rocks and trees where still where I left them, though I'm pretty sure they are. The memory is no doubt more colorfully painted than the reality, so it's likely for the best that my attempts to hop back in the old Mayor's skin met with a wall of EA bureaucracy. I won't try too much harder - EA's mail servers actually blocked me. Which, I have got to say, is one of the most giggle-fit inducing things I've bumped into in a long time. Were I a vengeful sage, I'd go full Lum on the asinine and draconian measures in place for what is quite frankly a game that is older than Google.

I do keep in touch here and there with Aleph, Azalin, Azrielle, Molly, Dryzzid, Alucard, and a few others, all doing well in their own right. I do hope all my former MTCers are doing well and thriving out there in the great wide world.

As an aside and of possible tangential interest, I founded forums over at PC Gamer earlier this year. If any of you old codgers are still active gamers and hang in forums, you're welcome to swing by sometime.

Semper Veritas,
GreyPawn
