    I won’t blow them up unless they want to come forward. But we have a 30 year (I think) old which is pretty young for EQ. Anyone else able to beat that?

    Wait 30 years old is young for EQ? I know several less than 23 years old, heck multiple teenagers.

    So what’s their story? They couldn’t have played much of the golden age back in the day. Wanted to just try out Old school Everquest?

    Parents play TAKP, so they play TAKP with them.
    Or they played P99 and discovered it sucked and went to TAKP instead.

    I went from P99 to TAKP so I could do a single group with just my bro. Was a good transition.

    For the longest time I was always the youngest person in my guilds in EQ. Now I’m 30 and often am still the youngest.

    I first started playing when I was 8? A half elf Paladin in Blackburrow in 1999.

    I am the third youngest, as I know, member of Paragon.

    With my age I always expected to be the youngest member in any EQ group I was part of.

    I was guilded with a couple who met on EQ and ended up having 12 kids or something crazy. I bet some of their spawn are playing on here, they'd be around 15-20 years old now.

    I would daresay my wife and I have the youngest players on this server.

    Speedz was a great help in getting our accounts set up back in 2017 so our family could all play together. Four years later and I bet our kids are still the youngest players here by a long shot.

    I never would have thought you were that young Darchon. Your knowledge of the game led me to believe that you weren't just a young pup!

    My son is currently waiting on an IP exemption since we weren't content "just" playing three characters between the two of us, but he's still just 10. He played on p99 some with me previously, but it wasn't much fun for him because of a true duo's limitations, and we only ever played just the two of us. Fortunately with 4+ characters here, we'll be able to put together a more active party without him associating with scary internet strangers (too often).

    I think the kid is going to die when I have him make a youtube video with me. "Yeah your old man has youtube videos like MrBeast and Dream or whoever. No I don't have millions of followers. Let's make a video!"

    Well in fairness, young kids are sponges for absorbing knowledge. That is why most of the best chess players in the world are in their 20s and have been quite good since they were small children.

    I just happened to sponge up the most useless knowledge for every day life.

    Probably more about Xegony. ;)

    Or certain graphical choices in zones like BoT.

    I always pictured Darchon as a grumpy old man. When I poke him, I'm prepared to run.

    When I read the topic. First though was:

    Do we have a candidate for the Creeper of the month award?
