    Certain relationships and friendships. Every time I've attempted gambling, whether it be at the roulette table or globes of shifting continents. Gambling seriously NEVER pays off for me.

    I regret not letting go soon enough.

    I kinda half regret not moving to Ashtan when Tanris expressed an infinitesimal amount of interest in me as a fighter, within my first IG decade or so of playing. Half of me wants to know what I missed out on, what sort of player I'd be now and such, but I've got some good friends in the Lotus/Hashan and I wouldn't want to have missed that either. 

    I also regret leaving Hashan the first time. My reasons were solid, but after leaving I lost all desire to play Jacen and just alted. The second time, I dove in and had a lot of fun with the Eleusian folks. There's a really good crowd of people over there. It was also the first time I got involved with a divine beyond just induction to a preorder, so that was a good experience too. 

    This one's sort of a continuous regret, but I really hate that I feel so "invested" in Jacen that I feel like I have to cling tight to all his belongings, including xp. I look at that level and number, and think about the endless hours I've put in to get there, and really just don't want to risk losing it by getting steamrolled by an actual fighting city in some conflict. This one probably hurts Hashan as much as it hurts me, and maybe one day I'll grow out of it, but I just can't pull the trigger right now.

    Last time I went to the casino to play roulette I think I wasted somewhere between 800k or 1 million. Also, I learned my lesson with the globes of shifting continents early on when I first started playing Achaea. I kept buying more and more globes trying to get a crate with a fawn in it, only to be sold one for 30 credits. I've seen then found out things like that are cheaper to buy from people who got them and don't want them than it is gambling for it.

    I do not regret betting 100k on a single blackjack hand, I was already up by more than that anyway, and it's fun starting with like 2k and ending up betting hands of twenty or even fifty times how much you started with.

    I regret mistaking doubling down as splitting, though, and losing 200k in the process, because doubling down is horrible, so horrible.

    I also kinda regret writing my first system to be super Nim-specific and super hardcode-y so it's a pain to change or update. I kinda wrote it as I went, and learned a lot of things about combat and curing after I'd started a lot of the work.

    That's about it though.

    Did they up the betting limit?

    In relation with this thread, I regret some of the "brilliant" ideas I may have had.

    Related to it, aswell, I also probably regret not being able to find ideas to interract more with some people I'd like to know better.

    @Seftin‌ oh my gods! Stop with the class changes! Where do you get the money to do that? I would regret it too if I spent that much money on class changes...

    ^ This, as well as regretting not experimenting with all the variety of play types/races/classes/cities I could have over the last - jesus - ten years I've on and off played Achaea. There are so many cool things I've not done or tinkered with in the world over that time, and I'd probably have a  better, more well-rounded and developed character if I had invested time in learning/trying much more...particularly combat, as well as growing more hunting independence and knowledge of the world itself.

    That being said, I feel really comfortable in Tillie's skin, and she's only 80 years young! Plenty of time to figure out....something. :D

    Also regret class changing so much.

    Been mage 4 times, Occie 4-5 times, Sentinel 3 times, Infernal once, Druid once (lel), Monk 6-7 times, Priest 3 times, Apostate 5-6 times, Shaman 2 times, Sylvan 3 times, Serpent once, Jester 3 times, Bard twice.

    Back to Jester. Wish I had more to show for my investment in this game, heh.

    I don't regret anything I've done. I do kind of regret not following up with Twilight after a couple of cool interactions when he returned a few years back, when Silas was unattached, because Darkness is still the only other ideal that holds any interest for me, but I'd say it all worked out for the best.

    Darkness is fuckin' cool. If I'd have known about it post Bal'met, I would have defected to Hashan instead. Seriously, that shit is cool as hell.

    Donating the Inexorable to Mhaldor before deployment may have been an excess of generosity in hindsight.

    Really? Because these things worked out pretty damn good for me :wink:

    Seriously though you both contributed the cornerstones to two navies that have expaned the gameplay options for players in two cities, potentially helped drive credit sales that fund our little fantasy world and helped create innumurable experiences for pretty much anyone that sails.

    I regret not leaving Cyrene sooner, I regret not leaving Mhaldor sooner. I regret joining Shaitan's order knowing full well the active people left in it at the time. I regret my written background.

    Having terrible internet and dying because I dc. Otherwise... not really? Oh, I suppose my largest Achaean regret is having to meet with my IRL cousin @Hasar IG for the first time ever. Geez, would have been totally better never meeting that scrub.

    I regret:
     * Using obscured and meaningless variable names in all of Achaea's original code, like "minortemp1" and "colour2". Yes, very helpful to later coders.
     * Not using the same root object for players and denizens (though the engine I was using didn't actually give me a choice there).
     * Everything about Lorielan. Duplicitous bitch.

    What about dragon talismans being tradeable!
