This being a record of the adventures of myself, Chela Cee Bias, upon Calypso. Firstly I should introduce myself, quite unashamedly I am just going to copy and paste that which I wrote in the welcome thread of this illustrious forum, slightly updated and edited to remove errors and the irrelevant. It will serve. Begin Quote "Greetings one and all. First let me thank you for welcoming me into your community, that has not happened for a very long time :-). A bit about me:- I have been on Calypso since about June or July 2006, I have to admit my first days were full of confusion and bewilderment. Although I am still confused and bewildered I can at least now remember which keys to press. Since arriving I have managed to get out of the orange, not by running around in my underpants and bare feet, explore pretty much all of Eudoria (bound to be a few places I have missed) and quite a bit of Amerethera (can almost never spell that). I decided early that I would follow the short blade path to serendipity, I have not got there yet but am well on the way, think I have lvl 22 shortblades hit but that's from my dubious memory. Should in your wanderings you see a bald chap dressed in foul skin stabbing frantically at some mob or mobs, it's probably me. The way of the blade has so enraptured me that I now carry no firearm except when on an event which requires one, needless to say I am a lousy shot. I do use a nerve blast chip though not often. Speaking of events, I am a member of "The Guardian Tigers", we are a small but friendly soc. and have a lot of fun together. If any of us has an idea for an event we run it for the others, some of them have been quite unusual, almost costless and a lot of fun. Crafting is something I haven't really tried, had a go now and again but find it a bit dull, would be nice to be able to make the knives I use though, currently Loughlin scratcher 2 (L) and Kesmek Slo (L) are the preferred blades simply because they seem to cause me less of a ped loss, both are slow so it takes longer to kill things but that means the hunt entertains me for longer. Used to mine quite a bit but that is a rare event now, sometime I see somewhere and think it would be a good place to plant a bomb but when I try it I am normally proved wrong. Guess that makes me a hunter then! I have managed about 8 globals (more like 14 or 15 now) I think solo and 3 or 4 in a group, I don't actually count them, just the cost of the hunt and the experience gain. No HoFs for me though, I guess one day it will happen but it's not important. What matters is being out there stabbing stuff. I have tried PVP but don't seem to be very good at it, I think a lot of that is my machine and connection speed, the machine is a bit old and the broadband not that broad. I have done much better when playing on a friends almost new PC with an 8 Meg link, I have thought about it and can only come to the conclusion that a slow machine and comms set up does not send as many data packets to MA in the same time as a faster set up so to MA it looks like I am standing still and am thus an easier target, only a theory mind. Hmm, looks like I have rambled on a bit, only meant to say hello :-). " End Quote I have been considering starting such a record as this for quite some considerable time, firstly I had to consider why, secondly where and thirdly when. So firstly, why:- I would like to keep some record of my activities for my own use, when I am old and bald (at least halfway there) I can sit around boring noobs about the old day, chances are my memory will not be very good by then so a written account would help. Secondly, where:- Having stumbled accross eu-chronicle it just seemed the obvious place, not to big, very friendly and helpful. Thirdly, when:- Now that was a tricky one, just start in the middle of a hunt, why not? But some how it seemed not quite right. So why now? Well, last night I took on my first Disciple, meet him upon this very forum as it happens. As I have not been a Mentor before it seemd a good idea to keep a record of it, for my own use, for my Disciples use and of course it may give others some ideas about what works and what doesn't. I have not had a Mentor myself so the whole thing is completely new to me and the two of us will be figuring it out as we go along. I have suggested to Zack (my Disciple) that he also keep a blog here, that way we should have a fair record kept by both sides of the coin. So the introduction aside I will commence with my next entry to record the events of last night.
