I sure as fuck hope whoever just moved this is working on it. Because there's no way in hell it's front-page material as-is.

Link screwed up, lacks the : between http and //

Ikri - About to head home now. If I'm not back in Eugene in 10 hours, it's probably because we hit a deer and the deer won, or lost, depending on how you look at the situation. Ouch.
Neelpos - If it's still alive after the collision slit its throat for messing up your car, then drink its blood to gain its power.

Does this actually integrate and optimize for Steam in any beneficial way, other than simply being accessed through Steam? Like, could you join a server from friends, or is it just basically tacked on?

Wait is the 50% exp boost just the boost for when you make your first purchase?

I think the starter pack was, and is a pretty good investment.
I also have a question, is 800 gold a lot?

I will not bother reinstalling it on Steam in this case.

More people should be playing this, though.

I played for a bit when it originally came out, after the first few days of playing I found it extremely boring. The maps are shit.
