I was inspired last night, I woke up at about 3am, with the name for a new character in my head. It had a purpose, it had a destination. I was going to rebirth my level 5 troll hunter on a different server, and indeed do a thing.....

Inspiration had come from a post a while ago, about the poor unfortunately named Kumquat - it still makes me laugh even now. My little 5th level happened to be called Twanga. Suddenly it became clear. Somewhere in the naming fashion of trolls, fruits were IN. Like we had a huge splurge of Kylies, and Chardonnays etc, I couldn't see why fruity names weren't a season's Big Thing. And thus Twangerine came into being.

Sadly no goblins are available yet, otherwise I'd have persuaded the husband to take Grape...

I spent the very latter part of tonight online with Single Abstract Noun. It was good. I felt shy earlier today, but by the end of this evening, I found it a comfortable place, a friendly place, and one to which I will return with pleasure. It's a place that - to steal from Larisa - I can kick off my shoes and stretch my trollish toes and be an orange haired troll lass who has already managed to run out of arrows mid fight.

Then there is Enthusiasm. It's growing. The ideas behind it are solid. People are appreciative of it, and I'm happy about that. I was terrified that folks wouldn't want to run the old stuff, or take things easy. But they do.

We've had people joining bit by bit over the last couple of weeks. Tonight we invited someone who'd changed faction and server for us - because they liked what we wanted to do. That almost made me cry. We're not there yet. We've still got a long way to go. But heavens, we're much, much closer to our vision than we were a couple of months ago.

It's wonderful watching both these guilds grow.

So.....*raises a glass to ideals and seeing them work*
