Revision as of 06:29, 14 April 2010

Anyone still playing? Cities is starting to seem like a ghost town; the Mall is desolate, the last "Current Events" update was in 2009, the coders have abandoned us. But I know some of you are still logging in. Occasionally the IRC channel even sees some action. So, in the interest of serving our current community of Cities Survivors, and in the spirit of the U.S. 2010 Census, I have decided it is time to take, well, a 2010 Census. I'm hoping this will help players like me (and you) to determine who to contact when they need help, or a rare item. And reassure potential new players that yes, there are still a few living souls around. So please sign this list, give the names of your main character, and any alts you still use. If you have been here say, more than a year, sign under veteran, if you have joined more recently, sign as a New Cities-zen (by typing 4 tildas), and if you are no longer playing or paying attention, sign as a retiree. For obvious reasons I expect very few sigs on that last category. Also give a brief description of what you're up to. AmishRobots 20:50, 7 April 2010 (BST)

If you'd like to participate in the Census but you can't edit the Wiki because you don't have an account, please request one. -- Sertularian 23:19, 7 April 2010 (BST)

New Cities-zens

Borodin 17:25, 11 April 2010 (BST)

Slowly working through the various quests; currently digging about in the desert for pips. Prokofiev, a more headstrong alt, is collecting for Hard Knocks in the interior.

mcire 23:41, 12 April 2010 (BST)

Just stumbling through the quests that I can... I've been playing for a few months now but haven't made a whole lot of progress. Right now I'm foraging for toxicology/working towards 2000 HP healed

AmishRobots is spending most of his time on Holiday Island gathering huge amounts of AP for all those quests I've never gotten around to, while Bernie is very slowly gathering cds for the help dorothy quest. Jos A Wapner is filling his Trophy Cabinet. I wasn't logging in very often for a while, due to low bandwidth issues here in cincinnati, but with my new, non-bootleg connection i expect to be on more often. You can IM me on yahoo as amishrobots.

Ream 22:03, 7 April 2010 (BST)
Sitting on HI mostly, sometimes heading out to slowly hunt down Reptiles for Plot Weapons.

Sertularian 23:19, 7 April 2010 (BST)
Semi-retired. Chilling on Holiday Island when not hosting Parties or gathering pet food. Considering a Dragon Breeding Program.

Scrumbucket 00:37, 8 April 2010 (BST)
Mostly signing in to keep pets fed. Half a dozen projects minor waiting for me to be bothered to do them. In the meantime, burning AP by drawing blood and gathering acorns.

Dmonx 01:01, 8 April 2010 (BST)
I took a hiatus for a few years, and just barely came back a few months ago. Don't have a ton of direction at the moment, mostly chilling in Oz.

Beata 03:07, 8 April 2010 (BST)
beata and shupeti are still current, although it is getting harder to find food for some of their more demanding pets.

S. Mackie 05:00, 8 April 2010 (BST)
Making and eating cucumber sandwiches. Existing.

--naath 10:18, 8 April 2010 (BST)
naath is generally killing things, and keeping pets fed. ethifel is devoting almost all her time to feeding the obsessions with some mapping (gotta get it all...). tashina is largely farming stones to keep the HAS going.

--Ade 11:40, 8 April 2010 (BST) Ade is still active, although much of my AP goes to waste because my max isn't high enough. My other alts are pretty inactive and regularly go in and out of limbo. Right now I'm gathering items for hard knocks. Recently I had a go and tried to assault Sun Tzu's monster league positions. I'm considering a public works project, but I'm not sure it'd get used.

Dragon 13:48, 8 April 2010 (BST)
Not really pursuing goals, just keeping my pets fed.

GrumpyNick 17:07, 8 April 2010 (BST) I play every day, but my pets all died a few months ago when the server was out all weekend. I just potter about killing things but I keep meaning to try and conquer the taxing cellar - I failed twice due to miscalculating the number of yellow flowers required. I've never had any alts, just the one character. And I've still got my dissa-pointy stick!

Fearganainm 18:35, 8 April 2010 (BST)
Fearganainm: Wandering the mines talking to himself and going gollum
Willow: Hanging around the four cities failing to grow lettuce, and trying to breed a super hamster but finding all the males are too shy.

Unstenk 20:01, 8 April 2010 (BST)
Mainly logging in to feed my goldfish, though I occasionally attempt to complete one of the quests I haven't done yet.

Ravensdance 23:14, 8 April 2010 (BST)
I'm still around and adventuring, but no longer trying to optimise my every AP expenditure. I've started working on finishing off the quests I never completed, such as those for other classes that I never went into owing to spending all my time farming HK components.

Naimoigiant 00:24, 9 April 2010 (BST)
Wizard Naimoigiant: Trying to complete every last quest (7 left, depending on how you count them) while also working on my personal goal of snowballing every character in the game.
Master Armourer Guildorn: Mostly lives in the mines, trying to get enough ores to keep my elite adult minrilax Lapidarius alive & fed.

Schmendrick 20:27, 9 April 2010 (BST)
Working on Mixology and thinking about heading to the Frozen North. Have been holding off on the Gauntlet in hopes of getting a trophy cabinet first.

Isambard 20:51, 9 April 2010 (BST)
I've been logging in occasionally to make sure my pets have food. I just recently decided to start playing properly again.

Team Jon 20:56, 9 April 2010 (BST)
Jon (the Cities version) is primarily concerned with running his shop, burning through buttloads of AP while riding in taxis, occasionally considering trying the quests I haven't done yet, but then abandoning them. BTW, Jon is a knight by trade.
Wyrd is my shaman alt. He's got a shop in the mall, primarily there to buy spell reagents. I've been questing with him a bit here and there. He's also the crafter of my group due to his mutable alignment.
Aazamon is another alt of mine. He's currently also knightly, but if I ever beef him up enough to take on the guards, I plan to make him an armorer. I have a theory that as the game gets less and less visitors, finding someone to provide necessities from the other careers is going to become harder and harder. I admit it's not the most scientifically advanced theory, but I am very confident in it's accuracy.

Stoo 23:29, 9 April 2010 (BST) Also play as Chloride. Not doing a lot at the moment... just keeping my shop open, and waiting to see what happens next...

Didbert 00:36, 10 April 2010 (BST) Just having fun

density 02:23, 10 April 2010 (BST) I'm here. I don't have much to do anymore, so I'm killing things mostly. Glad to help out as I'm able...

Syagrius 06:04, 10 April 2010 (BST) Is still here, though currently on Holiday Island crafting a weapon and trying to rock again with his viol (Forget to log in for a month, and you're starting over...) Anyway, hanging out, waiting for the next thing and (IRL) working on his MBA. Recently graduated with a Bachelors degree in Business Finance and trying to get a better job with the State or Federal Government.

Andrewsi 10:46, 10 April 2010 (BST)
I'm still playing most days. I've completed almost all the quests, so I'm spending most of my AP killing things and making sure the Guild Factory producing cucumber sandwiches keeps running.

MrBlarney Wandering the center, keeping my Minrilax fed and keeping up the arduous task of crafting the 'Kingslayer III (100 damage, 1000 durability weapon). The 1st of the line still sits in the guild Treasure Trove, and the 2nd of the line in my inventory. I'm not sure what I'll be doing once that's done though...

Douro 15:06, 10 April 2010 (BST)
Kinda around. Logging in every now and again to do bits and pieces. Aiming for Wizard level but not really enjoying plot points etc so burning through lots and lots of AP when I'm bored every now and again. Have never figured out pets and animals so aim to do that at some point down the line.

Kaos Dragon 16:28, 10 April 2010 (BST)
Semi-retired. I'm just chilling on my island and practicing my instrument every day or two. Still keeping hope that something new will pop up eventually.

cheese 17:50, 10 April 2010 (BST)
Making PILES of cucumber sandwiches... Alt fromage is busily considering kipple; will infinity ever arrive?

Solune 18:47, 10 April 2010 (BST)
Finally given up on hoping the gas bill would get fixed, so I'm preparing to try it the hard way, with a golden condor. Considering raising an elephant, but that's a lot of buns.

Anoki 22:26, 10 April 2010 (BST)
Anoki is wandering around collecting treasure chests
Malestrom is in the mines keeping his pets alive

Chad 10:55, 11 April 2010 (BST)
trad_chad has been sat on Holiday Island for ages. I log in most days to play the accordian, pull stuff out of my Cornucopia and see what's in fashion. Occasionally go on a questing spree or travel, usually if I spot the Condor or Ancient Castle nearby. Oodles of AP to burn should anybody need any Master Armouring work carried out.

Darksartago 19:07, 11 April 2010 (BST)
Spending a lot of time manually sailing back and forth over the ocean in a Suvey Vessel. Sure uses up AP! Looking to finish off the Totems quests, kill enough monsters to fill out my trophy case, go through all the subterranean fun in the 'kingdom, try my hand at wizardry and perhaps see what happens if I were to try a 3 million unit of sand Sand_Castle.

Agzu 13:19, 12 April 2010 (BST) Still around, as well as my two alts voverushka and paplaukes! Mostly waiting for some new stuff to happen and trying not to end up in Limbo. Sometimes agzu goes on a killing spree just to waste some AP (and to have some fun), paplaukes is a proud owner of a juvenile Minrilax, they want to go on many exciting journeys together and voverushka is slowly collecting a bunch of things for the Taxing Cellar quest. Great idea on the Census, by the way (:

JAD 15:37, 12 April 2010 (BST)
I am around, logging in every now and then to practice music and exercise my PCD and 4 familiars. I generally use my AP to collect sand and measures of serenity.

Heyus2 07:29, 14 April 2010 (BST)
Playing the fiddle daily to pass the time, collecting AP on holiday island, waiting for new content to spontaneously emerge. Checking alts every now and then to make sure someone doesn't golden condor them into limbo from HI (130k AP and counting).

Retirees

Gonzometro 04:54, 9 April 2010 (BST)

Still reading the wiki and logging in once a blue moon to ensure my familiars don't detox.

Cameron 18:03, 11 April 2010 (BST)

I log on every now and again just for the sake of doing so. One day, I'll get back into the game, and do the rest of the quests, and such. For now, 82k AP and counting...
