Farewell, and a final filk


Well, thanks a lot, Turbine.

Thanks for taking away one of the things that makes DDO fun for me, that gives me a place to rant about things gone wrong and celebrate things gone right. Thanks for taking away the medium that introduced me to some of my best friends in DDO (and beyond in a few cases).

If not for this MyDDO blog, I might never have met Slvr, Shin, Keava, Geoff, Vey, Comic and too many other friends to name (I’m writing this as I’m about to run Shroud, so don’t be offended if I left you out). And if not for them, I might not even still be playing any more. I certainly wouldn’t be playing as much, or enjoying myself as much.

This is where I’ve come since I was less than a noob, the one place I could always get even the stupidest of questions answered without fear of being flamed. I remember when I posted about Vic lugging around stacks of Fox’s Cunning pots and then logged in to find that Slvr – who I really didn’t even know at the time – had sent her an outfit with a clicky on it. Or when Vic got abandoned by a PuG who only wanted her along for the Ingenious Debilitation bonus and then left her on her own to deal with all the mobs they zerged through, and she got killed without ever reaching the chests – Vikkus (remember him?) sent her a lovely anarchic rapier and told her to remember that most DDOers aren’t like that PuG.

Heck, our not-so-little-any-more Cannith guild wouldn’t even EXIST if not for MyDDO. I remember when I got the MyDDO mail from Shin (y’know, back when MyDDO mail actually WORKED reliably) asking if I was interested in joining him and Comic in a little “experiment.” Now I’ve got nine toons in that guild, including a lvl 24-banking-25 monk.

So goodbye, MyDDO. It’s been fun while it lasted. I’m just sorry Turbine didn’t see it that way. Within a day or two, you’ll be able to find me on the new but not necessarily improved Even Now.

And here’s one last filk to close out my final post on MyDDO. To the tune of the Shirelles’ “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow,” it’s “Will You Still Read Me Tomorrow.”

Tonight I blog so sadly
MyDDO is ending so badly
Tonight I write these words for you to see
But will you read me tomorrow?

Is this the last you’ll follow
My thoughts and gear and pathos?
Can I believe we’ll meet in WordPress soon?
Will you still read me tomorrow?

So take this post as a token
Of comments, ratings, stars and fun
‘Cause MyDDO has been broken
So this post there will be my last one

I wish we could all stay here together
But Turbine squashed that notion forever
So tell me now, and I won’t ask again
Will you still read me tomorrow?

{Instrumental interlude}

So tell me now, and I won’t ask again
Will you still read me tomorrow?
Will you still read me tomorrow?
Will you still read me tomorrow?

    You can be sure I will continue to follow your DDO experiences in your new Even Now. I’m trying to keep it up but I’m aware I have been much less time around and I’m not as skilled as writing as most people around.

    What? No “March Madness” conclusion? It’s like just getting into a TV series’ storyline, and then having it cancelled before they resolve anything…

      @Blue: I’m working on something that might be a way for us to have a place where all new blog entries from MyDDOers are posted. Trying to find someone who knows more about this stuff than I do. LOL

      @Comic: Never fear, March Madness will be continued/finished on the new blog.

    Whenever you post a new blog, post a link in twitter please so I can always keep up to date on what my Princess is up too! Yup! πŸ™‚

    Yeh i too think myddo has kept me playing, met lots of great people here.

    Looking forward to the march madness conclusion and i hope these filk’s continue, maybe even start doing some songs that i know πŸ˜›

    Totally agree. Although I’ve not (yet) enjoyed an opportunity to play with you or others in our now-dying MyDDO blogosphere, Even and others have made my gaming life that much more enjoyable.

    Glad that you took the WordPress plunge too. I loved your last filk–and I’m sure it won’t be the last.

    Copying your new site in my blogroll (as well as any other links offered up by others) on my new DDO blog: http://orderofsyncletica.wordpress.com/

    A confession: I usually hate filking. Many people in my SF convention circles visit live filkers, and they often make my dental fillings rattle. But you have helped me discover the joy of filk again. This one was the best–and saddest one you’ve made. Keep ’em coming. πŸ™‚
