    Hello. I go by Corin. While it's not my official name or anything, I would vastly prefer being called that.
    I'm currently pursuing independent art studies while playing a bit of Maplestory here and there.

    I dream of moving to Europe one day and make a living as a web-comic/freelance artist. :p

    I'm Yunior, started playing back a little after beta. Was my first ever online game and It stuck with me all through the years because of it cuteness and fantasy. I'm now 22 and although I don't have as much time or imagination as before I still love this game and it's sad that Khroa is so dead. I remember hunting crocs back in the day and just obsessed with the game to the point where I actually had a vivid dream of killing crocs in kerning city xD

    Greetings. I've got many names, and I may reveal some of them in the future. For the moment, Henesys Hooligan will do. Or Bifrons.

    I'm European, an avid reader of books, comics (american, franco-belgian and japanese alike), and palms (okay, that's a downright lie, but all good things come in threes).
    I play video games, tabletop games and card games (see?)
    And... I got a thing about villains.

    I don't usually roleplay in video games, but in this case I thought I'd explore how an inherently evil character would handle the situations one come into as a member of the maple society. So if you see some weirdo in Kerning City, shouting at the top of his lungs "Well, Shumi. If you're willing to pay this much for a bleeping coin, it must be worth a fortune! I think I'll keep it. Ha!" and then running away without turning in the quest? I might be that guy.

    Consider yourselves warned :p

    i'm SpectralRyder, formerly known as HealerGoku.

    i live in Oregon, U.S.A. (the closest proximity i'm comfortable sharing)

    i am an avid gamer and currently learning game design, i see no better education in this field than playing as many games of varying quality.

    for the personal part, i am mostly a shut-in (due to my Aspergers), and i have actually been successful in getting outside, i'm not too bothered by large groups of people. i raise rabbits and other assorted animals, i enjoy drawing and even sketching, i also enjoy cooking (and no, i'm not talking about my mabinogi life).

    i mainly play my Xenon in the reboot server although i do enjoy Evan, Shade, Luminous, Night Walker, Marksman, and even Dark Knight.

    such introduction
    much awkward

    Hi I am Eric !

    I upload a daily "This day in history, and Happy National (Day + Food) on basilmarket stories !

    I'm from NYC and I am proud to be Shanghainese !

    In-game: I am the guild leader of Blackbean in Bera and we have tons of "Blackbean Celebrating National _____ photos in the basilmarket screens section !

    Recently started to use reddit knowing that the player base is greater there ! I love being part of the maple community

    And last but not least, my only request is that maplestory becomes much more of a social game once again !

    Please allow easier communication between players by fixing the guild and buddy chat
