  What a hilarious nostalgia trip this is

Love you all.

This is hilarious.

Love looking at this nerd stuff we all invested in back in the day.

What a fun and strange time to be so wrapped up in silly writing for star wars fan fiction.

I just watched The Mandalorian final episode of season 2, and when Luke showed up... I can't believe I was in middle school when I found this place. Now I found myself nearing 30, with two kids and a steady job, and this place was my only fix of post ROTJ star wars that somehow I could be a part of.

What a crazy thing the internet is. I will remember this place fondly with my various accounts, silly OOC dramas, and good old fashion star wars fantasy fun.

If anyone sees this, know we all had a fun time playing star wars together. The writing was always secondary, the community of avid star wars nerds was the number 1 draw, and we all loved it.

It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye... Then it's hilarious.

Truly it is. I remember joining Vast Empire over a decade ago when I was around 12-13 years old and just beginning to get into the world of roleplay. Found some old posts, my old wiki character profiles, and definitely cringed at how bad I was!

Thankfully I've managed to grow quite a bit since then, but still remember this place fondly.

Hey guys! A nostalgia trip indeed!

I remember my friend introduced me to VE in middle school and now (I can't believe) I'm approaching my 30s as well. I had a lot of fun roleplaying here and this site lives rent-free in a cozy place in my brain.

I never really lost my passion for writing though, and after quitting Facebook earlier this year, I finally started my own blog.

I actually just wrote an article going down memory lane about a space pirate game in the early 2000's I want to re-create and I just so happened to check back in here to see how things were going.

You can check out my blog post here.

Anyway, I hope to see some more old faces trickle in because I would love to get a story going again.

Cheers!

I randomly thought of this today and decided to see if the website was still up. Such great memories and friendships were had here!

It really is a trip. I joined for the first time maybe in April 2001 or 2002 and got booted out a few months later for the first time. It's funny going back and reading some of the things that 12-14 year old me wrote 20 years ago.

Also crazy seeing some people's profiles who haven't been active in 10-15+ years and I associate with VE, and people I've never seen that are nostalgic about it.

It's nice that Kadann keeps this up, all the other groups I took part in or associated with (FES, SV, GE, the venerable TRIC - ha - etc) have mostly gone away...

It is great to come back occasionally and take a read through some of the stuff that we wrote in years past, some were great, some were not so great. It truly was an enjoyable time. Gunnay you are not the only one who got essentially booted out in their younger days.

Yall know I been here the whole time, still waiting for the next Chapter?

Still fuggin with the stock market, just saying, top 10 forever baybay.

Anybody out there wanna relight this thing and get some writing going, I will always be for it.

Good luck and God Speed to all of you out there.


This definietly feeds my Nostalgia monster, and keeps him satisfied.

I still shamelessly play X-Wing Alliance, and dream of the days as 10 year old me having the time of my life.

Thank you, all of you, especially Kadann, Fury, and others, for keeping this website up and operational. Its nice to see there's still some blood trickling through the old veins.

As many years as its been...hilarious i remembered my old password.

But i cant even find my car keys.
