    Hey, all!

    I've not posted yet as I only just five minutes ago pledged, but I'm really looking forward to seeing Terminus. The world looks amazing, and I can't wait to see what they plan on doing with the classes! I hope that, whatever it is, it's as unique and innovative as Vanguard.

    I usually go by the name of Wizen Trygg (or just plain Wizen) in online games. It's a pronunciation of my initials, so it's as close to my name as a lot of you will be getting. ;)

    I've been here and there in MMOs ever since I fell in love with the genre in Everquest's SoL / PoP expansions. Huge worlds, epic quests, good friends, and shiny swords are all what makes MMOs special to me. After Everquest I flitted here and there, through EverQuest 2 and World of Warcraft and Tabula Rasa and Hellgate: London and Vanguard: Saga of Heroes. There are others, but those are the highlights in my mind.

    I've been enamoured with Pantheon ever since they released the race and class descriptions lo so many years ago. I'm a little surprised that they kept the image for elf the way that is, as I feel like it's not the best picture, but what do I know? I'm not a designer of this game. I'm just one more fool that parted with his money to bring back a polished piece of nostaligia. Hopefully I'm not too much of a fool and this game turns out to be everything I hope it will be.

    Right now I'm playing FFXIV, and am greatly anticipating the FFT based 24-man content that's coming on Tuesday. I've already outgeared it in the savage raid targets, but I'm burned out on main tanking and want to have some fun as a ninja. Perhaps I'll find another raid group. Perhaps I'll put that game down and play this one instead. Probably not, though, as my brother just got into the game, and he needs help levelling up. But I digress. :)

    I hope to re-found a guild from Vanguard in Pantheon, Ex Umbris, formerly of the Woefeather server. If there are any shadow walkers reading this, shoot me a message!

    Hm, what else? I like coffee. I like retro Final Fantasies. I'm playing through 5 now with my classes randomly chosen. I'm approaching the water tower right now, so my party build isn't at its optimal state, but I have a thief and three blue mages. Once I have my party together, it'll be Thief, Blue Mage, Dragoon, Samurai. If I can get White Wind on the blue mage, I'll be set, but without White Wind (no !Control allowed! 4 Job Fiesta rules!), it'll be difficult.

    ANYWAY. I hope to see you all in game, in friendly and good spirited circumstances. Here's to a grand time in Terminus!

    Wow had forgotten about Tabula Rasa and Hellgate: London played both for a short while,  my list of games is so long, like I said I've forgotten some of them.    Hail and Welcome to the Pantheon Family Wizen. :)

    I did the exact same thing in FF5 LOL.  Well, I randomly choose in games a lot more often than I should...
