    It was 13 years ago today when I first stepped foot into our virtual universe at Port Atlantis on Calypso. It was my first experience with an MMORPG and I didn't know what to expect. My brother had played for a month and said I had to check it out. He lasted 3 years, and while we had MindArk put MindStar9 on ice while I'm in this official position with the Monria Team, the spirit of the purple is still alive and the driving force behind DarkMoonEnigma. I became the EU Picture Storyteller in June of 2005, and I'm still going strong.

    I'm reserving the wordy details of my journey for the book, but I will share photos from over the years to give you an idea of the wonderful and crazy experiences I've had. I've tried to identify what's what.

    These were all part of the "Mob Idol Auditions" that I created.

    FUN AT THE PIER ON CORINTH BEACH

    The original pier at Corinth where I hosted MindStar Radio DJ shows.

    Moments before servers went down to implement VU.10 with CryEngine2.
    A few of us hung out to the very last minute.

    Fun at Corinth after VU.10 was implemented with CryEngine2.
    I have a gazillion photos, I only chose a few.
    I continued to host MSR DJ shows at the pier and created fun events and contests.
    We would go inside the PvP Octagon and then run down the pier to
    get shot or shoot ourselves on the diving board.
    We would have last player standing events in the Octagon with 50 PED prizes.

    I will put random old PE/EU photos in the second and third post. It's cool to see how things were back in the day in comparison to where we are today with graphics and activities.

    It's been an amazing 13 years for me, and I'm not stopping anytime soon. MindStar9 may be on ice, but she's always with me in spirit, and it's nice to reminisce now and then.

    MS9 can remain in her cryogenic state and continue to freeze her ass off while I'm having fun in my new era of crazy-ass fun with the Monria Team and our amazing community. :grouphug

    The purple is still with me, but there's a darker side that you have yet to fully experience. :devil

    Thank you, it's been amazing to say the least, and I've had a lot of opportunities, with many in our expansive EU community who have supported me along the way, but no one, bar none, the way that Ant has. He knows what I have accomplished over the years, and he knows what I'm capable of, probably more than I do myself, which is why he allows me the freedom in this partnership to explore possibilities with our amazing Moon community.

    The way that he supports me in my efforts to discover what could be, is what I want to do with supporting the potential of where we could go as a community. You guys get it, and we are not short on appreciation for the way that you are traveling this path with us to make Monria the best experience we can deliver.
    We have a lot yet to explore together, so thank you for your patience, and most certainly your contributions. :purpleheart


    PS ... I will still be adding the additional photos to post 2 and 3. It's just been a busy day for me. :)
