Help with an old character name

So, I'm not _back_ back, but I'm back enough to hang out a bit. After a lot of trial and error, I was able to remember passwords for nearly every character I could remember, but there's one character whose name I forget. I was Mertak (Merrie), Meegwan, Callanbar, Sselrahk, Sselissir, Tharrin and Gru...

Re: Looking for old players

I just wanted to pop in and say hello.

I used to be Mertie, Meegwan, Callanbar, Grunn, Tharrin, Sselrahk and I think a few others. If any of those names sound familiar, please say hi, and I'll pop back for some nostalgia.

Cheers,

Dave/Mertie.

Race Truce?

I haven't been on the BBS is ages, so I have no idea if anyone else has suggested something along these lines, but I think it might be kind of cool if we tried something different on one of our weekends of silliness: Instead of a MULTI weekend, what about a weekend when the racewar was suspended?
