Give a brief description of your char (free format telling, class-wise, choice of weapons, style-wise, any other information you wish to include)?
Concussion, two-handed and slashing. Using those weapons I did it all. Open area fights, solohunting, solo vs many, overkilling, trapping, hugefights, follower, leader, you name it.
How would you summarize the career of your char, how did it all happen?
Some friends showed me a mud at school. Me and player of Vardamir tried another one out, but eventually same friends introduced us to mume and we got stuck.
What was characteristic to your career, were you especially known of something specific, or did you have some favourite tactics?
At some point I was known to hit really hard. Before concussion got downgraded... Level 70+ were rare back then also, so as a level 70-80 vs normal legends of course I did some damage...
Did you have somekind of eras distinctive of each other, favourite group mates, etc?
Mostly grouped with p(Vardamir) both as leader and follower during the years. In the beginning I followed Luke alot since it always gave alot of exp.
What was the one thing you loved in your char that made you play it all the way?
Hard to say, but when I played alot and reached highlevel pretty fast back in 2001-2003 I got stuck at just that, using a "powerchar". I could´ve reached 100 much sooner but some years ago I retired at level 91-93 or so and spent time on/created other characters.
Describe the best, the worst, and the funniest memory you have with this char?
Hm, first time I got full shining metal was nice. One of the worst...I was nr 1 warlord for the first time in my first shining metal set, and got bashtrapped at moors by NSL using call lightning. It has been plenty of funny moments these years. I have laughed out loud several times.

Each level 100 character is asked to present one question to other club 100 members. Kindly submit your question here, and answer to it yourself too.

- Question by Dragóth: Do you still try to explain and describe mume to people irl? Or even show it?
I do, and they all think im mad.
- Question by Ypsilon: What did you do after reaching lvl 100? After quitting MUME? Any new "poisons" to your life?
I still play some of my other characters. Not much, but now and then.
- Question by Stolb: Why do you think that most of puke lev 100's are hardcore expers while darkie lev 100's are hardcore pklers? Which way did you pick and most important - why?
I started mume as darkie. I wanted to be evil! The first wp made me drool for more so I pked 90% of the time spent in front of the screen. All those years darkies had more targets so if you enjoy pk you play darkie...
- Question by Staub: If you could start all over again, would you? and what would you do differently?
I dont think so. But if yes, I would this time get a combo to 100.
- Question by Vardamir: When did you start to play this game and how come you started?
98 I think. Friends showed me.
- Question by Salazár: Why there are barely any players playing MUME nowadays?
Many stupid changes. Removal of visible WPS (yeah its back now, but not as it was). Splitting the warlordlist. Changes to sneak. I remember when flee got changed. Changing zones to 100x100 areas. New areas 100x100...
When was the primary playing period irl of this char?
2001 - 2002.
What is your relationship with MUME nowadays?
I exp my weird combos now and then...
How do you see MUME now compared to what it was back then?
Much less pk and the few enemies got more skills. I miss the old wps and combined warlordlist...
Other characters you have?
Dragóth, Decoy, Milena, Dracol, Clayman, Varulv, Shaïgan, Aaricia, Thorgal, Vamahïl, Sorsha, Dumsnut, Trawl, Leffe, Jamie, Donovan, Inglorious, Dawn, Bombata, Thardus, Notorgo, Shwang and two very secret characters.
Real life name and nationality?
Peter, Sweden.
