Throughout the years, Ive gotten a lot of letters from folks all around the world whove played my games. Each person has shared a bit of their story, giving a glimpse into ways that Ive impacted their lives. You never know what is going to touch someone, and I find these stories incredibly inspiring.
I also find their present-day adventures intriguing. In this new age of instant communication, friends become fans, games become teachers, and then we all become next door neighbors. Enjoy this first installment of a new monthly feature that shares the stories of these connected lives.
Rusty has completed nine books for children based around his son Andrew who stars in each story. His first adult novel, The Hitmen Narratives, is a series of short stories revolving around one of the most evil of professions, the professional killer.
As the father of an Autistic child, he hopes the sales of his books will provide funding to raise money to seek research and treatment for children with Autism and Autism Spectrum Disorder. To that end, 50% of all profits from any book are pledged to like causes.
Last month, I sat down with Steve Prestegard, editor of the Platteville Journal. What I thought was going to be a short announcement about my new game turned into the entire front page of the SouthWest section. Heres an excerpt from the article:
Adams didnt realize he was considered a gaming pioneer until the advent of the Internet and email, when he started getting emails about the impact of his early work.
Adams is back in gaming with the release of The Inheritance, which he describes as interactive fiction, or a text adventure game with sound effects. So its a reading and thinking game. Youre put into an environment; you tell me what to do.
If you play the game for a half-hour set the timer and if you can get up and not think about it, its not for you. The game is going to continue to make you think about what you want to do next.
As many of you know I enjoy playing computer games. For the last 15 months I have been playing Everquest2 with a large number of good friends.
Vindicators (www.vindicators.org) the guild I run in Everquest2 now numbers 450+ characters with well over 100+ real people behind the avatars. We are one of the largest and oldest guilds in the game.
The guild itself recently turned level 30 and bought the best residence in the game at Number 2 Bayle Court in South Qeynos across from the magical tower.
Our members all worked long and hard on acquiring the city status and the items needed for our crafters to build the items in this house. Then our own Khal Minister of Events decorated our mansion. Here is a video of the guild house. I hope you enjoy it!
We will be having an open house in the game on March 5, 2006. Here is a link about the festivities leading up to the grand opening
If anyone is interested in playing with us you might want to try the free trial of EQ2 and see if it something you like or not. http://www.trialoftheisle.com/ We are on the Antonia Bayle server which is role-play and non-PVP.
I added a link to Counterspy on the right column. I use it and recommend it. Note that I do get a percentage of sales from that link.
Note Vindicators on EverQuest2 is now the largest guild on the most populous server. Always room for a few more friends!
Vindicators on the Antonia Bayle server is now alive and well and looking for new friends. Everquest 2 is turning out to be allot of fun!
Everquest 2 is launching Nov 8. I will be heading up a role player friendly guild there and invite all of you to join us. If interested please join the EverQuest yahoo group which you can find on my links page
I was interviewed on Mobhunter about my activities in Everquest. I also made a movie of my 5 character hydra and how I do it.
I was invited into the Everquest 2 beta last week and have been playing my sneaky, backstabbing little ratonga scout and having a blast. I plan to play good chars in retail so I selected the evil char during beta. The NDA prevents me at present from saying anymore. But if you search the web you will find more information on the major fan sites.
I am still playing City of Heroes. Currently main character is Flame Lock but I also play Great Scott on and off. Also playing Everquest while I wait for EQ2 to come out.
Did a little more work on the Inheritance, at this rate I should be done in about 5 years!
Currently playing City of Heroes This a great fun MOG. My character is Great Scott defending Paragon City on the Virtue server. If you play CoH be sure and send me a tell or in game email. I am thinking of starting a Super Group called Vindicators when I reach level 10 (currently 8)
Modified the download pages to indicate the Windows versions of all the games work on Windows XP also.
Another teaser for the interview http://www.moonradio.co.uk/moonradio_new/screenplay.htm and http://www.moonradio.co.uk/moonradio_new/current_artist.php and the handout being given at the show.
I am being interviewed on the web Sunday 29th February, 2.45pm GMT (that is 8:45 am central, 9:45 am eastern)
Never say never when it comes to EverQuest. After not playing for 3 months I have reactivated EQ again.
I have cancelled all my EQ accounts as of December. I won’t say it is permanent because you just… Read more…
