Managed to open my Cordylia account
It took a long time and trying out a bunch of things, but I finally managed to get into my Cordylia account for Dark Age of Camelot. Wow, it feels so surreal to play my first MMO character. I had started in 2001 when I was only 15 years old. So many precious memories from those good times. It really felt like living in a whole other world.
I'm impressed that the account was still available and that I still had the login info for it. I didn't have access to my original email account, but fortunately the new company handling DAoC allowed me to create a new account with another email address and then link my game account. I did have to pay for a subscription to get access again, but that's okay. I just really wanted to see what it was like to be Cordylia again.
It was a strange feeling to be logged in and all alone. It felt like being the last person alive. I had logged out last in the housing area, and it looks like all the housing was removed. It did mention that this was an archived server and that I should transfer my character to a new server eventually.
I was able to view my friend list and recall all the names of previous friends. Oh, the memories. Even though this was somewhat sad, it was also nice to come full circle.
