In August it is exactly 10 years since I started playing Achaea. Since then Achaea has been a huge part of my life. I got a fun story to share.
So my main character Bleak started out in Mhaldor. But being the bad guy wasn't really my thing. So Bleak moved to Ashtan and the Ashura. There he met a boy named Thi. Bleak and Thi fell in love. It was a homosexual relationship, while in real life, I am hetrosexual. But it was in line with how my character rolled so I went with it as well. Fun RP stuff out of my comfort zone. For a few in game years we played together until one day Bleak and Thi got married.
Quite soon after the marriage Thi said he had to talk to me OOC. This was quite a rare thing to happen with him, so I knew it was serious. He told me he had been lying a little to me. IRL he was actually a she. And Marianne (the player behind Thi) told me she lived in Switzerland. That is only a few hundred kilometers away from me. So one day Marianne came to Holland. We fell in love all over again and after about 8 years we got married again. But this time it was actually legal.
So Achaea did not just bring me fun for many years. It also helped me find the love of my life. Through a bloody text game... How amazing is that?
And a while ago we found out something even more amazing. As the title says... Achaea is life.
There is also bad news. I am not allowed to name my first child @Sarapis
