I leave Greeika behind. The ineffective, fervent chat of a righteous player avails little. I look forward to meeting my new guild mates in person, but for now they’re just text in a box, talking about pillaging and looting locations beyond my reach, crafting items I can’t wield, and charging towards rifts I can’t seal. Yet I am more connected to the player community than ever. We’ll all meet up one day soon, and hopefully we’ll all have something to talk about.
