|My real name is Bob and I live in Illinois, USA. I am 19 and have been
attending college as a freshman this year.
I began playing Utopia at the end of age 3 as Chillax. I landed in a no-name
kingdom which was not very organized and bounced to a new one at the round restart.
I landed in Humungus' (aka Gigantor) kingdom (member of Wrath of Absalom). I began making
alliance connections through my friend Saphery who was in the same kingdom as
Excalibur of the GSA. I joined GSA and started making myself known in the
alliance world. My kingdom was an organized monarch killing machine that
round (before more rules were put in place to make killing harder).
At round 5 I was passed the leadership of the kingdom as Gigantor left to devote all
his time to Wrath of Absalom. I filled some empty slots in the kingdom with
personal friends to have some fun in the game and we did. I believe it was
this round that I joined Dark Hordes (DH), an elite branch of the GSA under
control of Phantom Brigade. It was a small group of players and I filled its
ranks with my contacts. The GSA leadership decided that they did not want to
have this branch operate anymore and we all saw that the GSA was going under
from too many members so we began operating in secret from them. When Ex and
Will left to retire to Shadowlight, I suggested some changes for the squad.
I took over leadership, we renamed the group the Rogue Knights and began
recruiting. We grew moderately large in size and had influences in all the
Round 7 brought about the birth of the Syndicate which
began taking in several smaller alliances to give them more power. Several
thief guilds were recruited along with spies being placed in a few of the
larger alliances. I never stopped having fun by pissing people off, and I'm
sure that is what most will remember me as. When the tiff with AA started, I
lost a few RK/AA kingdoms who chose not to fight for either side. My spies
helped greatly in this war giving me locations of the leadership of the
entire AA including Mr. Popular himself, Methos. We had a good pounding back
and forth and then some other alliances got involved.
I was offered a
leadership role in the Faith Brotherhood and accepted it for a short while
during the start of Round 9. Later that round some in my kingdom decided that
they would like to let someone else have a go at leading the kingdom. I
accepted and decided to leave them with a bit of a bang. I started some
intra-kingdom fun before deleting and about 12 others left with me. I told
people I had quit the game and deleted my contact list before heading to
Louzer and joining up with him in the Legion of Blades. I passed off my
alliances to various players that I trusted and began playing in the most
organized and honorable kingdom in the game. We took top honor that round
This round we are working at taking top networth but are quite happy
just being in the top 3. I am also doing some teacher work for newbie
ghettos to try to bring an end to them on the World server. Hopefully if you
give them the tools necessary to play the game well it will raise the quality
of play and bring some new challenges into the game. If you read all of this
rambling then I applaud your determination (or boredom) whichever it was that
compelled you to make it this far.
I would like to thank all the top 50 players
that always had my back and those from all my alliances as well. Thanks to
Smudge for revising this with me and Saphery for getting me addicted to the
game. In closing, alliances can be fun and a great way to make contacts but
relying on one's own kingdom and enjoying the game should always be key.
Teach those newbies how to play rather than just killing them straight out of protection.
They may prove to be a great addition to your kingdom. And finally, I can
never say this too much... Don't stop enjoying Utopia for the GAME that it is.
Have fun, grow large, piss people off (no, no wait that was the old me don't
do that) play honorably ;-)
