  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...
