Aww! My first MMORPG was EQ. I had a barbarian warrior, and I remember Halas fondly. :)

Me too! My first main character was a barbarian warrior and I have fond memories of Halas and that first run through Blackburrow.

I played both EQ and EQ2 at launch, but after 3 years and 9 months respectively subscribed to both MMOs I haven't played either of them in a long time. I wish I found the basic gameplay of both MMOs more fun, because SOE seem to be doing quite a good job of maintaining the lore and continuing to add lots of content - I can't say I support their cash shop and CCG shenanigans though - I very much doubt I'll ever go back, despite regular temptation to.

Now Planetside 2 and DCUO - they might persuade me to give SOE my credit card details again.

I have really good memories of EQ & EQ2. Unfortunately, you can't always go home again. I've tried, and the moment has passed. I will always remember them fondly, though.

Oh what outstanding and very fond memories the name Halas brings. Nothing like the feeling of gaming nostalga from EQ. Running around completely blind, splashing into the water between Halas and Everfrost. You finally make it to the zoneline to end up in complete darkness again. "Where's that damn campfire?!?!".
