I sat down, relaxed, curious, calm. The time was six in the evening, I was prepared for a light gaming session, after a little bit of time I’d go back to dying continuously in Eve. I went through the pretty and interesting introduction video and found myself a little more interested. I came to the character creation screen. I was given choices, I chose the Defiants, the Guardians came off as just a little too hoity toity for me. When given my class choices I was a little surprised by the lack of choices but my mage was there so I wasn’t terribly miffed. After a few sliders of customization I was ready to go. Maythorn was born into Necropolis and I found myself drawn inexorably into the world of Rift.
