So, not many people really know who the character in this icon is. Well, if you look you'll see the name, and several of my gaming friends on here have seen variations of her in other games. This is a drawing that was done of my Halfling Druid (Ruann E`Paul) in the original EverQuest by a guildmate of mine in the Fourth Wall. Sometime in the past few weeks (prolly the launch of Age of Conan), Sony decided to reactivate every EverQuest and EverQuest 2 account out there. Including mine.

I'm downloading EQ Classic now. It'll be done in about 10 minutes or so.

I'm patching EQ2 now. It'll be done in a couple hours. :p

So, yeah. Ruann of Tarew Marr will be getting logged in. And I'll get to see which of my other characters survived. She's all of 32, so she's got some cool toys to play with. Hell, she's got some massively epic toys she was twinked with by guild mates, but still. Granted, the Tarew Marr server long ago merged with another server (Drinal), but that's ok. I know at least 4 of my characters survived the process. Ruann, Kalleesta, Letalli, and Vesla.

Nostalgia is a weird weird thing. Heh. My account for EQ was created in 1999. Ruann was last logged in on November 16th, 2005. This will be interesting.

So, for those who are curious, here's the progression of the Ruann characters in various games:

Original Version: Ruanne Paul, specialist wizard in the school of Cosmetology (2nd Edition AD&D, Forgotten Realms campaign based somewhat on Highlander the summer after my freshman year of college, humorous character. Do the math.)

EverQuest Version: Ruann E`Paul, Hallfing Druid of Karana (Tarew Marr server, Fourth Wall guild)

Dark Age of Camelot Version: Ruann Epaul, Briton Friar (Palomides server, Fourth Wall guild)

Anarchy Online Version: Karyl "Ruann" Silvestrini, Solitus Martial Artist (Rubi Ka 1, or whatever it's named now, Omni-Tech side, Fourth Wall)

Final Fantasy XI Version: I don't even remember. I'm repressing. Don't make me cut you.

City of Heroes Version: Kung Ru, Martial Arts/Regeneration Scrapper (Once on Pinnacle in the Fourth Wall supergroup, now on Virtue in Terra Incognito). Silvestrini, Martial Arts/Willpower Stalker (Virtue, Luna Incognito. The Praetorian version of Kung Ru).

World of Warcraft Version: Ruann, Halfling Warrior (Aggramar server, Signum Incognitus)

D&D Online Version: Human Warrior (I don't remember what server, I'm not repressing quite as bad as FFXI, at least)

EverQuest 2 Version: Ruann, Halfling Warden (Unrest server)

I have a bunch of characters that I have been playing in various incarnations for over a decade now. Some of them I've been playing for 15 years easily. With City of Villains right around the corner, I've got the opportunity to get yet another take on and old character of mine.

So, let's delve into the world of character history, shall we?

Letalli V'Lesra, from Elven Princess to Regretful Shadowknight, and back again. )

Lisa Stall, from crazy fire-loving Mage to really fucking scary Tremere Vampire )

Ruanne Paul, from Specialist Wizard in the School of Cosmotology to really short druid to ultimate kick-ass! )

Now, I suppose it's only fair to mention a couple of characters who never really made the dive into multiple games. Sarina Matrilor should have, by all accounts, been a character I kept with me forever. While I've tried to make versions of her in games, none have ever stuck. She was modeled off of Red Sonja (but blond!) and was a lot of fun when I played her originally. I've just never been able to get her moving along again. Darren Sundance has made some cameos in games other than D&D, but none lasted more than a week. He was another comedic character I thought I could bring back, but he never made it.

So, now, we come to the character I'm excited about revisiting and creating a new past for with City of Villains.

Calista Matrilor/Kalleesta Nefaras, from insane cousin to dark priestess to even darker Necromancer. )

The user icon for this post is the first online version of Kalleesta. Original EverQuest graphics and all. And, in case you're wondering, that red chainmail she's wearing is the Blood Stained Tunic. I wonder how many people remember what that is? (Why, yes, she is KOS in North Freeport, why do you ask?)
