Hmm I remember looking at my brother (Jan Gaarni) play the game. And he told me to get it too. I thought "nah looks boring" hehe. But I got Jan to buy it for me, and help me install it (yes I wasnt a computer geek at that time ) I got help from my brother and some others to get to their first "city" on Naboo. "The crafters retreat". I always thought that wookiees looked cool, so I made a female one. White and black. I felt so cool. lol. When I got there I saw houses and other players saying "hey" to me. And I thought "wow this looks cool". At one of our meeting inside a medium naboo house one of our creature handlers pulled out a big animal. The whole house shook (sp?) and I didnt know what was happening. I almost didnt know how to move the character right Suddenly a big green foot came through the walls, and everyone yelled "BRUCE!" It was Baboos pet, the torton called Bruce. Ohh my, it was the biggest pet I have ever seen, lol. We went outside and it looked so cool!!!. But since I wasnt used to the game and knew little of it. I thought it was dangerous. hehe. But then later Jo showed me a tamed Peko Peko and I fell in love with the profession creature handler.
I deleted my wookiee and made a twi'lek called Tebra (the one on the picture below). I got dancer and creature handler, but after a while when I started to level I knew that a more dangerous profession then dancer would be needed. So I got swordsman. And I loved it. I ended up as a master swordsman and master creaturehandler. I ahd fun taming pets, and when mounts came out. I took special orders taming special mounts for people, naming them, and gettin the commands right for them. Hard work, but it was soooooo nice. I felt that I was helping someone getting a mount they would care for and love. So when they took it away I felt so sad, I lost both swordsman and creaturehandler. And I ended up as a officer in NGE. I still got my pets in my datapad. Love them to death. Still miss the old days. Hope they come back soooooon
In the end before NGE I had 4 accounts. NGE = 0 accounts well well..thats my story
