Feel For The Stick

By drakkos

I have managed to find a fair bit of time for playing Epitaph over the past couple of weeks, and a fair bit of that has come at the expense of my own sleeping. It reminds me a little of the first time I encountered a MUD – it gradually took over more and more…

Play the Game – Everybody Play The Game
