Hi there. :) I'm not sure whether to say I'm returning or I'm new, as when I played before I didn't really step into RP. I had the intention to, but my wariness of people (particularly RPers - it's an odd stance to have, especially when I love RP so much) sometimes makes it hard to integrate with others on an OOC level. If I feel comfortable in a community, I create content and run RP events and storylines.
I came back two days after the merger and ended up staying, so now I'm attempting to get to know people. I joined the discord, but waited to make sure I wanted to stick around before starting introductions. I want to stick around, so starting all of that now.
P.S. I've always played West, but made a Warborn and fell in love with them and their background, so I'm undecided which faction to dive into. Once I step off that fence and focus on one or the other, I'll take the next step of joining a guild.
