Wiryu
some more time passing pharming material to help try to get the boards more hustle and bustle. Tell me how you were introduced to the guild that is the Apocalypse Tribe. And for our Guild leaders, what made you decide to bring AT as far as it is today? (i am interested.) beigesmile.gif

Blame Crushinator.
Wiryu
lol, come on ferra, you can do more than that beigebiggrin.gif


I guess while i'm here i'll post my story. One day a friend of mine by the name of Shalafi told me he wanted a WHM for a Palborough party, so i accepted and made my elvaan whm self to Bastok to meet him.

The first member that joined us was a perky lvl 8 Warrior with no subjob by the name of Woe, After that another BLM shortly after by the name of Unfaithful joined us, and then we made our way to Palborough. We battled our way to the top, and during an AFK of mine, Woe went ahead and was Aggroed and killed by a quadav. I returned and buried my head for taking to long.

Shalafi returned back to bastok to get his major Uber lvl 25 whm who could raise! Whoa! After the raise we decided to head back to Bastok. After much appologizing and some goodbyes, Woe offered me a trade and gave me a green pearl for the Apocalypse Cow. First Innitial thought "This'll go in mog house, dont need it since shal, aller, and i are gonna lead a LP! woo!

Needless to say, none of us were ever on at the same time, so the LS failed. Another day while looking for a group in valkurm, i got an invite after 5 or so minutes, and to my surprise was that same perky warrior Woe, but this time a Dark Knight! At the time i was leveling my Warrior, but i was still surprised he'd lvl'd so fast. After idle chat, woe vaguely remembered me. "I think have a pearl you gave me!" "are you sure i gave you a pearl?" "let me check.....yup, Apocalypse Cow!" "oh, well, stop by sometime."

Anyways, it only took about an hour of having that pearl equipped i knew this would be my OG home, and since then i've had an AT pearl on since :D

Well jeeze, I could give you my life story, too.

So like, February (I think?) of 2002 I went to this DDR tournament: Master Of Ninja. I was the only person to fail, which was awesome 'cause I failed MoN:2, true to form. So like two months later, I was in my school Library surfing the intarweb because I was painfully bored. I typed the name 'Kari Moutsawa' into the yahoo search engine (It still works, if you want to try it.), because that was the alias I was going by at the moment. Lo and behold I found myself on the list of names for people who'd signed up for MoN. Being bored, I'd have been crazy not to check out ninjagamer.com; so I read everything on the page. Every single damn thing, and I was like; "... what a bunch of weirdos. I'm going to flame the bitches."

I register on the boards as 'Karichan', take a few looks around, and decide that user Doraemon might textually kick my poor little intellectual-whoring anime-fangirl ass.

Posted a few times, figured it wasn't so bad, because they didn't mind me being a bitch on the boards. I made myself the alias 3vil Ninja Chick, because being a ninja babe isn't right for a 12 year old girl. I wanted to be alternative. I was happy, a lot of weird shit happened, hung out a few times, the rest is a bunch of history that really doesn't involve me.

So what does this have to do with AT? Absolutely nothing, I'm just leading you on, bitches.

User Doraemon on the ninjagamer.com BBS, the crushinating robot ninja.

So like, it's October, right? Chawbacon/Maxx is like, "Hey! Buy FF11, because ninjas are thuggin' on it!", and I'm like, "ButI'magothkidIdon'tplayvideogames". I bought it anyway, though. Because I wanted to be one of the cool kids. I made an Elvaan warrior, Merria, and I hung out with Chawbacon a lot. While he was showing me to Valkrum dunes, we ran across Crushinator (At level 16 thief at the time) and Chirawurm (..? Maybe it was Chimaera?). Crush was like: Crushinator would like to trade with you. Me, being the spaz I am was like, "HOMYGAWD, NO TRADE !!1!!1", and he was like, "Uh, okay. Bye."

(I'm feeling lazy about the whole writing thing, so I'll make this quick:)

So later I was like, "What's the green thing over your head?" Chawbacon is like, "It's a linkshell *beams* Crush is the leader, and Tanshin and Tdoggie are on it too." So I needed in on this shit. I /tell Crush and he's like, "wtf, harro!", and I'm like, "linkpearl plz".

For some unknown reason, I deleted Merria (A level 20 elvaan at the time), and created Ferra (The shitty mithra). I regret ever choosing mithra as my race, but that's another story. So crush gives me a linkpearl to the ApocalypseCow shell, and it was awesome, and that's the end.

Wow Ferra. Poetry.

my 3rd day of playing ffxi i got an invite to a party in the dunes and Dorian was in the party we were chatting and i mentioned how i just started playin and didnt know many people and he was like well hey you should join the ls i'm in they're cool, so he got woe's attention and woe rides up on his trusty chocobo.gif and gives me a pearl. pretty boring story, and now i've left ffxi for WoW beigelaugh.gif

I blame crush, ferra and Marn.
Once upon a time I was a warrior in Valkrum. Big pimpin' in the scale mail. I had on a ninjagamer LS pearl that I was given on my first day playing the game. I knew that Ferra and Crush and Chaws had left ninjagamer fairly permanantly for AC. I was in a PT with Marn one day and asked him, timidly, if I could join and so I did, and it was good. The ninjagamer linkshell either failed entirely or just merged into AC. Later AC became AT, and it'll stick in my inventory until I decide to quit for good.

I have to blame DE for this one =3 I still remember the day that I met DE. Back in PSO I just joined a game cuz it said something about killing Olga in the name, so I thought "Sweet, kick Olga's ass again, thats original!" So I came in and 2 weird Huneys name ZEOTA and Linkka were going through Seabed. I kept playing with em for many months. I originally went to brinstar.org (evil place don't even go there) then DE told me about this place. That about sums it up.

My story's not too deep. beigelaugh.gif I went to the main page of The Arcade instead of heading straight to the forums likeI usually do. When I got there, I saw the button link for Apocalypse Tribe, clicked on it saw some familiar Arcade and PSO names, and joined up. Yeah, that's about it.

Layrinn had a difference of opinion with AT and is no longer participating in the site or the guild activity. It was his choice to depart.

Let's not cast a shadow on this thread with this talk, please continue the origins.
Wiryu
now Dive, this may be your site, but i rule this post!(please do not kill me ; ;) why is there no Origin of AT after your words good sir? :D
unitself
Wiruu, dear wiruu, let me explain a little somthing about Dive.

He scares people.
They see his name on the site, and they freeze.
"Oh my god! Dive is here!! What did we do wrong? He's gonna scold us all!!!"
beigelaugh.gif

My turn to origin-ize this thread.
A long time ago, I was part of another board. So was Dive. Then again, he is apart of almost every board out there (watch your back people). We were all heavy into PSO. Well, as time went on, less and less people were playing PSO so the threads about it started slacking. I grew ansy and made a thread about "who still plays?". Dive chimed in and said, "Hey you should come over to this place called AT. There are alot of us who still play quite regularly." So, I did. Bryn sponsored me until I became a Neo. Back then, we had to be on like a month trial, running errands (coffee, laundry.. that kinda thing), harrasment (paddling, wearing a dress... oh the humility), the endurance test (uuuhg my feet are still bloody), and many other things before we were let in. But it was all worth it... the new wardrobe, the vacations, the cars...
Man, it's good to be AT.
Riel
Kinda like Uni myself also...through PSO.The virtual lobby of PSO where awesome for meeting people and one early morning(i was so addicted to PSO when it first came out that i use to hop online 30 minutes before heading to work,very early in the morning)...i met Lish and Crush in the lobby,they where doing their all nighter runs and i also met Woe,who was IVI back then.I had my newly made RAcaseal Ann-Dro and i joined IVI's game and started roleplaying my Android a bit and to my surprise IVI joined in the act,instead of brushing off my roleplay,so i thought that was cool.Then i came here.

Blame Crushinator.

I blame ferra. :( She was like "Hay, reinstall FFXI and i'll talk to you more" and I was like "O rlly? sweet" so I did. Then I noticed she was in a clan/guild(I forget what FFXI calls it) and I was like "Oooh nifty, can I join?" And she said I had to impress dive with my awesome skills, and I did. And here I am.
Stinkywinky
Here is a lil' ditty about me.

I bought FFXI for the hard drive to get new maps for Socom II, which I played alot with my krew from work. So, we turn on the trial, all get on, pick Bastok as our hometown because we were all like mele guys. I think I was a Taru Monk at 1st. It was funny because we were all on the phone saying "I am at the fountain!" (In the markets), and the other dudes were like "I am at the fountain!". Lol, we were all in different worlds. Enter next day, surfing the web at work we figure out we need a worldpass, I figure I want to be a THF and probably a NIN later, and we research a little about the jobs. This is when me, a fat, balding, old man decide I need to be a Mithra! Uhg!

Within hours I have this jerk Cursive hitting on me online, and doing emotes and staring at my ass and stuff. I was like womgz! Then I learned how to blist someone. I will roleplay a mithra to the extent that I am nice to other female charachters in the game, a sisterly thing, and that is IT!

Soon my work buds and me hit the dunes, 4 mele's and a RDM, and a BLM. We dont party with outsiders much, so we miss out on the love. We do extremely poorly, and dont know why, then we figure out, we need a WHM. One dude decides to do it, so we send him some gil, chill a few days, he calls in sick at work (lol), and soon we are good to go again.

At some point we all figure out we need gil, Pigmy and I learn to camp the goldsmith guild and make silver ingots. Soon we are sporting 100K gil, sweet. One other coworker and I get serious, he is a little Taru WHM/BLM (Pigmy). He uber outlevels me, you know the deal with WHM. I am more into fishing, he does some crafting, etc.

It progresses OK, we all get to level 30 eventually, I unlock NIN as my sub (Yea, Right SUB). The guys at work get extremely lazy, a few quit, come back, quit some more, bitch whine and complain, I get my Lu Shangs, make killa gil doing rusty fishing, get some freaky boots, and a nasty hairpin. I am all like, lets party!
Sometimes I get to sport 1 Mil Gil, ooh. It doesnt last long, I pick an expensive job.

In this time I have has 2-3 linkshells, since I fish so much, I dont care for most of em. I would rather not here about who needs gil, who wants me to plvl them, who's penis is whatever. Nonsence was my opinion of Linkshells. I did get one with an Uber JP player who said he was abandoned by his peers who went on to HNM linkshells, I was like, whats HNM? He loaned me his Ochode's Kote for a while /smile. Eventually, I was abandonded in that linkshell. The only pearl holder, and the only one on it. I loved it, I could use it, and fish undisturbed. People didnt think I was a b0tt3r neither. Cool!

Fast forward, I am leveling NIN into the 50's. I read about NIN and hate control, and I am uber self concious about it from 37 on. I even post on Alakazam a post called "Do I suck?". I am vokin, spammin Ni elementals, setup a nice wheel macro dealy. From 37-50 something I have 2 good parties, just 2. One is with a Galka BRD named Dchere, who sets up JAP only parties, and he is not JAP. Usually its lamers who cant hold back on their nuking, or bow and arrow shit, and cry because they cant find a PLD. My one good party was 2 mithra's that chill together constantly who were rank 9. They did an uber job of killing the mob, without pulling that prick from me. I spent a few nights with them actually, but they soon outlevel me.

Then I get a /tell from some Galka THF named Breaker, I am like, Oh! Galka THF. Someone did their research, lol. He said to expect an invite from Galactia. I was omw! I party with them a few nights, and we had/have a good setup. Nobody is too bossy, everyone gets along, I learn a thing or two. A few of us wish we had a set party, I see a falling star, make a wish. Boom, I am in a set party and get invited to a Linkshell, the Apocalypse Tribe. The motive of this linkshell is total world domination, and enabling it members to become more powerful for HNM's later on. I am down with that. My set even waits for me while I go to Disneyworld for a few days away from game.

I die one day fishing SSG, Abaya comes and Raise II's me, even though she does not like me. Nice people. Someone named Tanshin assists me for my AF boots, I am impressed. I found a place.

Now I get flack all day from the guys at work about how uber I am, and dont help them all the time.

Good trade off I think.

That was a pretty fun read stinky, good stuff. I recall a thread like this made awhile back. I went and looked for it and low and behold Becoming apocalypse I look back at my typing and it seems like all this "womzg" stuff has dropped my typing skills. crash.gif

My thanks go out to breaker for posting that Link, it adds some volume to this thread through that one to see people like crush, woe, and dive post their stories beigesmile.gif

Wow. I'm so cool. I've made cameos in TWO origin stories.

Sigh. I was playing the game before X and X player and they are both level billion and I'm still level suck. In fact, my character may be gone.

I don't really have an origin story. I just kinda got the game at the same time as crushimon and when he made the linkshell he hooked me up with a pearl. (I could be totally wrong. My memory is HORRIBLE.) At any rate, I might be back. OooOOooo
