Letter from an ex-pain-in-the-ass player

SarapisSarapis Member, Administrator Posts: 3,398 Achaean staff
Got this today. Was nice!

"Hey man, it's <redacted> from Achaea. I just wanted to say sorry for all the shit I gave you and the staff back in the day. Besides the irreverence that I approached everything with in my younger days being a little embarrassing, I have also spent the past 4 years being chief engineer of a software company. I now understand software to be a relatively thankless job overall, especially when you have a customer base that is highly demanding and less than understanding. It makes me feel bad for all the pointed jabs I took at you guys. Karma is repaying me every day :S

If it wasn't for Achaea, though, I wouldn't be a software engineer today, and I definitely would not be living the lifestyle that I have now. Not only was it a lot of fun, but it was also a great outlet for me to experiment with my programming and personal skills, and helped me parlay those into a good job doing what I love... even if my customers are more like early 20s me than I care for.

So, thanks for building the world that you did, and I hope IRE continues to be a success."

    Oh come on, name and fame.

    It's like name and shame, except that we can all go "Huh. He turned himself around. Maybe there's hope yet for [insert your preferred pain in the ass here]."

    The one person I remember who often had some grievance vs Achaea would be good old Varick. That's my speculative speculation!

    I'd say Dajio... but... too soon?
    Huh. Neat.

    There are many, many people that would, aside from the specific detail about being lead software engineer, would fit in that letter. You guys aren't going to guess. I didn't really remember anything specific about the character, but I've been doing this a long time and players blur together over time.

    Plot twist: Sarapis wrote the letter himself, in a deceptive trick to convince people that good-natured people exist on the internet.
    That make sense since you're the only real player, and the rest, myself and Sarapis included, are Skipicus' alts.

    It's true, I'm afraid. I've had many communications with players over the year who were like, "You must remember me, I was such a jerk" only to find out that they just cycle out of my memory or blend into the endless stream of players exactly like them. That kind of player is generally only remarkable in his or her imagination. I tend to remember players who have had a lasting impact on the game.

    Please tell me you remember Halo. He's some old guy. Only rumours of potential sightings at this point. Much rarer than a sasquatch.
    What doesn't kill you gives you exp.
