Florian Lights

Fight to conquer. Conquer to rule. Rule to excel. As rulers, we show respect to our enemy and do not mock them in battle. For to do so is to show the mark of a weakened man, and not a true ruler. -Tidurian

How about it?

Most of you know me. I am the second leader of the Florian Lights. Tidurian, our original leader, was eaten by a rather large pack of Grue one day while adventuring (or quit because he was under tons of real life stress) and the clan was handed down to me.

I'm a married father of two from Florida, US. I obviously play games. Lots of them. And I enjoy cooking.

I also enjoy long walks on the beach, sunsets, wine, pina coladas and gettin' caught in the rain. tongue

I'm Brandon and I live in New Zealand although I'm originally from the state of Virginia. As with the rest of you, I was a huge fan of Infocom games when I was a kid and was especially proud of solving Zork III without the use of InvisiClues! Sadly, I needed those for most of the other Infocom games...

I also won a "New Zork Times" Puzzle Contest once, and had a T-shirt for years before it finally became too tattered and faded from repeated wearing.

It's a thrill to re-connect with Zork and the G.U.E. again, especially with other like-minded fans.

Will be fun playing in this clan, I think! afro

Hello. My name is Phil. I stumbled upon this game from Gamestop, and I've been enjoying it so far. What part of Florida are you from, Dustin? I live in Riverview, about 10 minutes from Tampa. Small world. Great clan, very nice and helpful clanmates Very Happy

Just outside of Jacksonville. I am down by you a few times a year. I go to New Port Richey and Tarpon Springs quite often.

I'm a new Zork fan, myself. I didn't play them when they were new, but I play them now and I love them.

I am Danny. I live in Huntsville, AL.

I enjoy music, friends, video games. I also started playing this game due to an email from GameStop. Maybe they aren't the anti-christ of video games after all....lol. Really enjoying it so far. Much better than any of the games on Face book.

Haha, while I never played any of the Zork games back in the day (My father wouldn't let me at the time) - I did get to play the Leather Goddess' of Phobos. That was quite a kick Very Happy

Hi, I'm Mia, also from Florida, only in Panama City area (actually north of there, where there are no such things as street lights and paved roads, but no one knows where Kynesville is).

I have been travelling for quite some many years, from Ecuador to Iceland, England, Romania, France, and Holland, and now I'm back where I grew up because my mother is ill and needs a care taker. I have always been a gamer, and used to love the zork texters, but Nemesis blew my mind, because I'm kind of Goth, and this was the first game that tickled my gothyness AND my gamer side too.

Other than that, I like whiskey neat, I cheat at pool, I swim better than I walk, Dance better than I swim. And this is Your Truly.

I'm just impressed that you managed to get a shot of yourself from that angle in a vehicle.

Name's Rob, and I live in Alaska. Yep. Alaska.

I really only play LoZ and Halflife: Team Fortress Classic with any regularity - Once in a while I'm found playing Guitar Hero or any old Japanese RPG (Dragon Quests, Final Fantasy 1-6, Shin Megami Tensei, etc.) I consider myself a retro-gamer, having grown up on an Atari 2600 and an Amiga (Lode Runner FTW) - and, before anyone else asks, yes...I have a copy of E.T. on the atari - possibly the worst game ever made.

Other than that, I like to heavy backpack, long walks on the beach, and margaritas at sunset. And the cold - Can't handle temperatures above ~65 Farenheit.

Cheers, everyone!

So you have a copy of E.T. that wasn't buried in the Nevada Desert. Collectors. lol.

Hi,

I'm Vidya, and live in Texas, though I'm originally from India. I love games of all kinds, but my favourite video game of all time is Prince if Persia, I've played it since it first came out from Broderbund on 51/4" floppies Wink. And yes, I'm excited about the movie.

I found Legends of Zork via GameStop but now that I think of it, I believe I have an InfoCom version of it on my Mac. I am a completely noob to the RPG genre - I can't get my head around Final Fantasy at all! - but I think I'm going to have fun with this one.

When I'm not "gaming", you can find me knitting, beading, or just hanging out with my RL clan: hubby & my two fur babies Wink. But I'm looking forward to hanging out with this one too Smile


Cheers!

Hello, I go by my screen name Carrie. It's a name I've used on the net for years just as a safety thing. Cause I was surfing the net when I was a kid and it was a lot scarier of a place. But that was years ago when I was in my early teens.

I am currently 24, and I've lived in several places with out being an army brat. I started off living in Northern Indiana near Noter Dame. Then I lived in Tampa Florida for about 5 years, just off of the Hillsborough River for you Florida people. Now I'm in the Nashville area dealing with the lovely flood. I was lucky and my house was spared, but cars and garage gone.

Any way I got into Legends of Zork for that chance for the free games. But I'll be sticking around longer than that because I'm liking the game. It's different than what I normally do on the net. I'm an avid RPer, I love to write and wish to be published. So yeah that's about all there is to me. *shurgs*

Writing is a major passion of mine... funny though, reading really isn't. I don't like reading and very VERY few authors grab my attention. Chuck Palahniuk being my all time favorite with Dan Brown behind him.

And I just noticed the intro page, so I'm sorry that I'm late about this.

My name is Larissa. 19. I just finished my first year at Colorado State University. I'm from Colorado. I'm not much of an online gamer ... I prefer systems (especially from Nintendo) . I heard about LoZ from GameStop, they gave me a card thingy. I'm hoping against all hope to win the free games, I think my life would be complete if that were to happen haha.

Anyway if you're interested I guess I'll put some info about myself. I'm an English major w/ creative writing concentration. I love politics and marching band ... and I guess video games too, but I'm sure that's assumed. And I know how lame this sounds, but I'm on Facebook if you'd like to be friends on there (just let me know you're from LoZ).

End?

Hello, Sailor!

Mason, here. I've been exploring the GUE for quite a while now--ever since the first 3D game in the franchise came out. I must say, this current incarnation is somewhat of a "Zork Lite" imho, but I'll give it a thorough chance.

See you out there!

I am from Lithuania.
Map reference:


I like good food, I do not drink, but I smoke. I am a beginner game developer, I do stuff with flash I am interested in visual arts a lot, although I do not do them myself. I'm finishing school this year. I enjoy to work a little at various places even if I don't get paid. I have some barbaric habits (chewing pens and pencils, using teeth to hold some stuff when I'm rummaging through my backpack for stuff, start dancing or jumping around at random). I love interesting conversations about universal virtues, art, meaning of life, politics sometimes. I am always dressed in dark colors (black, grey, dark blue, sometimes dark red), at some point I was acting goth and dystopical, but now I'm not like that, I just simply got used to this clothing and I feel uneasy if I'm in bright colors. I don't enjoy being in large crowds, but I love one on one conversations with people, I have a lot of friends, because I have easy time approaching people and talking with them. I like Animation in general, but I am not neck deep in watching Anime. I like gaming, my top priorites in games are the mood and the story. I am patriotic, I dislike people who emigrate for the sole reason of searching an easier life, although I have no problems with those who leave because it's the only way for them to achieve their goal (for example people who leave to study race car mechanics, because there are no such studies here). I like various music. I have little interest in pop, but I am not against it, I simply don't care. That is all. Boring, wasn't it?
