Hate to break it to you, but you are about 20% correct.

Both Mystra and Miax (not taking away from what they did for the mud) were way out of hand, and deleted people on a whim if they were bent out of shape... or even questioned on things they SHOULD have been questioned about.

They are the reason myself and many others left the mud during their "Iron First" Rule. As an adult playing a free internet mud, you shouldn't have to put up with the tempermental childish bullshit that those two put a lot of people through.

So from personal experience... I have to believe others then you.

Normally I'd say something in my own defense, but I think what happened to Toril/Sojorn is more than proof enough.

Who are some of the names of good players from Soj/Toril history you'll never forget? (Good as in, people who left a positive image on your view of the game, not good as in 'goodrace' because I mean all player races/classes).

This isn't a popularity contest in the least, so don't treat it as such. Come up with your own lists, and try your best to not to just grab from others. I'd like to see who was influenced by who in their playing over the years.

Please Adhere to the following respectul requests within this thread:
-No getting into any nasty drama details. Post the names, and as much class/race/gender info as you can, as well as one possitive aspect about that player (aka your reason for listing them).
-No bashing people, or quoting other people. Speak for yourself.
-No obvious brown nosing of current players. Remember, I said 'Soj/Toril history' and that is indicating players who are not currently playing or haven't played for over a year.
-No derailing my thread. Post your list once, and update it if you need to.


I appreciate your help to keep this positive and productive.

Thank You.

I'm a little disappointed nobody remembered to list my name! Perhaps it was too long ago, or perhaps it's the fact that none of my friends play anymore...

Anyway I have my own story to tell.

Level 50 paladin.
2nd Holy Avenger in Sojourn 2 recovered from CC when it was considered impossible.
I was the one who brought wearing 2 Lightning Earrings into style!
Sole owner of Cloak of Swirling Mist! (monk haste cloak) reward for Eye Aeternum Quest.
Eye Aeternum Member.
Eye Aeternum Vs Crimson Sigil Tiamat fight - only Eye fighter who didn't die during the fight.

Probably also the only paladin to actually be permanently punished for doing 'evil' ie selling one of my several Holy Avengers to a troll. (this is when they stunk btw) Ok so it was wrong, but Mystra setting me to a warrior with negative -1000 align? That's something no paladin could come back from, and by then, I already had accomplished everything I set out to accomplish anyway... so I rolled up a new paladin Talmor with better stats and he got to lvl 42 or something before I lent Malacar all my eq and his account got "hacked" and I then had nothing. (coughyeahrightcough) Yes he stole 2 lightning earrings, Cloak of Swirling Mist, etc.

Between Mystra and Malacar I had enough of wasting my life away only to have inconsiderate people throw away all my time and effort, so I quit.

How about THE DREAM! Nobody has mentioned the dream

My numerous friends:
Silverast
Khajja
Ikar
Draaz
Garosh
Joth (Jihad)
Momu
Enth
Zothmo
Noke
Talsor
Modu
Asamoth
Malacar (not really friends after he stole all my eq)
Arigon
Lloric
Nilan
Kozir

Maitro
Beern
Kurz
Kyntara
Zenak
Santego
Mikayla
Kreiden
Aradune
Gorsh
Cerze
Deidrit
Varia
Sundara
Sangdraxus (my arch enemy! jk Sang)
Mikar
Thengil
Yrbie

Forgive me for all I've forgotten, I know there are many of you.

I remember when Rand changed his name to Raand and he was level 1... and as a paladin I wanted to help noobs, so I IMed him asking if he wanted some noob eq.. that was kinda funny when I realized what happened... figured some of yall might appreciate that story...

Anyway thanks for listening to me rant. I had lots of good times on the mud and plenty of adventures I'll always remember. Even though in the end, I lost it all.... the experience and journey was incredible.. I set out doing everything I wanted to do when I was a noob on Soj 1.. did all the zones, became one of the best paladins in Soj 2, fought Tiamat, got an artifact, became friends with all the real legends...

I even got up to lvl 42 this wipe too.. but I really left just because I feel my time on Sojourn is past... most all my friends are gone from the game and just memories now... as am I.

Dlur wrote:In no particular order:

Old School Evils:
Grimulk/Jaeb (Troll Shaman/Bard) - Holder of vast knowledge of the game, and ALWAYS a nice guy, and he belongs in the leaders list also.

Wug (Troll Shaman among others) - Very knowledgable, had great ideas for making a small group of ogres/trolls workable and always very funny.

Thrakazog/Thrak/Mumba (Berserkers of various races) - Rough, tough, and almost mean at times, but a super good player with lots of crazy ideas.

Anga and Urz (Trolls)- These two taught me a lot of how to be a proper troll over the years.

Jukahn(warrior and Berc's brother, later Shratz on Duris) - Only person I ever succeeded in 2-manning rabid troll with and a hell of a guy.

Gogan, Serrala, Drakkoth, Targsk - Warriors of note from pre-illithid evils.

Awesome Leaders:
Kurz/Lothair/Porthal (Warrior) - One of the smartest guys I've ever met, not to mention one of the best leaders of all times and my personal favorite leader to follow.

Modu (Sorc)- Smart dude, and all around swell guy, great leader of both zone groups and guild.

Toddrick(Cleric) - We all know this guy.

Daeron(Dorf Cleric) - One of the guys that taught Kurz, Tavon, Toddrick, et al how to lead zones.

Tavon/Vallon (Monk) - One of the other best leaders of all time and a hell of a guy too.

Jerthal(Cleric) - Another legend in leading groups, with a knack for driving politics and conflict to the benefit of his friends.

Mplor(Monk/Invoker) - I mplor you to find a nicer guy, was always willing to follow this guy.

Jihad/Joth(Cleric) - Upbeat guy who had his ups and downs as a leader, but I remember more high points than lows.

Lazzraxxuum(squid) - Every evil who played after Squids went in knows why this is here.

Calib(Cleric) - Fiy uo oucldd udnertasand ihm eh wsaa great leader.

All around legends:

Serro (various) - Need I say more?

Sao (Sorc) - 1st sorc and player to 50 ever?

Adriorn(Pipi Ranger) - Nobody can make me laugh like this guy. Ever. Probably my favorite ranger of all time.

Garosh (Warrior) - Doombringer anyone?

Draaz (Warrior) - Taught me what playing a barbarian and being a warrior was all about, not to mention he had a nice axe :)

Gorsh (Warrior) - Gauntlets, hammer, good guy.

Xyzom (druid) - One of the legends of druidism, and always willing to help a fella out. Not to mention that anyone in Legion of Chaos should probably be in this list somewhere.

Tagad(Cleric) - One hell of a cleric and I suppose he was a nice guy also.

Sjesko (Gnome Sorc)- Probably my favorite sorc of all time, and one hell of a guy too.(Magebane!?)

Tarius/Lloric/Luknor (Rangers/Conj) - Fun, funny, and a top notch player(Woundhealer!?)

Waza (Monk) - One of the nicest guys I ever met on Sojourn, and the first one to take pity on my newbie self way back when.

Menoch/Latimer and Haemos - Legends of RP

Waelost/Weylarii(ranger) - Questing machine.

Yrbie(Gnome Sorc) - One of the only other gnomes from back in the day that I consider to be a true gnome along with Sjesko and Marforp.

Marforp(Gnome Sorc) - Never had so much fun dying with someone in such stupid situations.

Elscint, Dohrum, Vurad - 3 guys who became my first real friends on the Goodie side of the game back when, and they were great players too.

Mikar - Good leader despite all of the spanks back in the day. He really got a bad rap, mainly because he'd always end up with a couple of newbies that would get the group spanked...reminds me of Mori in that respect. At least he was always willing to try.

People who suck:

Thanuk


Few corrections and additions:

Serro was troll warrior, and one of the greatest players this mud ever had, NO FEAR...

To leaders I would add Deidrit (elven druid), she led most of Eye Aeternum groups and taught me everything i knew about leading before I actually took over leading most of groups then (LONG TIME AGO)

Jaeb - nobody must forget the only fucking bard back then that was actually high level and active :) NOBODY forget Jaeb dammit :)

Oh, and as for Gorsh's gauntlets, 6 of us got an arti after our 3 day epic guild quest. Modu got staff, Jaeb got drums, Deidrit got cloak, I got crown of dwarvish lords, Gorsh got gauntlets, and who was the last person and what they got I just don't remember... It had to have been a cleric or something... anyone remmeber? Of course after that we were hated for that, cuz obviously gods didn't do that for anyone else, it was a mistake to have Kor (Lloth's mortal) in guild :)

For a very long time, I had to pretend JJ (Deidrit) was a girl. Everyone knew we were roommates, so I had to have heard "Are you sleeping with Deidrit?" a thousand times. And it never got easier to avoid throwing up. :P

You're absolutely right... thanks man... Draaz was the man, arguably the best barb warrior to ever play this game. I learned a lot about being a warrior from the guy...
