Hi and welcome back! It will be good to meet you. If you get some time when you have settled on your character concept, let me know. We can make sure you have all your character information when you return. Also since you have been away for a while, you are eligible for the returning player program which is here https://realmsofadventure.net/simplemachinesforum/index.php?topic=3054.0 . You get some goodies to make the return easier!Also if you do recruit anyone you get credit for that person and they also are only $20 for their first event. No worries about being shy, we have a pretty friendly group as a whole.If you need anything, feel free to ask either here or on FB. We would be happy to help!
