Hey all, I'm moderately new around here. Achaea is the first (and only) text game I've played.
I first started playing this game a couple of years ago, on another character, and I was ecstatic at the level of player interaction and the depth of Achaea. However, I was turned off by the learning curve, my stalling progression, and the super expensive credits. I rejoined pretty recently (three or four months ago?) and bought the no-brainer lesson packages. Again, though, my progression stalled and I felt that I needed to spend too much money to keep going up. Again, I quit.
I rejoined again about a week and a half ago, during the sale, thinking I'd give it another chance. Man, am I glad I did. Achaea scratched some itch I didn't know I had, and I realized I really enjoy it. So, I bought a credit package. We'll see how it goes, but for now I know I'm staying!
I don't know why I felt that I needed to share this, but I thought the whole process of vacillation to and from Achaea was pretty fascinating.
P.S. I feel like I'm really squishy, both against monsters and players. I've got 800 credits. Any recommendations for a monk with 15 strength and 14 con?
