Once upon a time, long long ago, a teenage girl dreamt of flying in space, fueled by volumes of science fiction. As she grew to adulthood she discovered that space travel the way she dreamt it was not possible in real life. The hunger was still there, still feed by more volumes of science fiction, science, movies and TV shows. Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, and Star Wars fleshed the dream out with astounding images, aliens and ideas.
As she explored the realm of computers she discovered gaming. First D&D type games, like Rogue and Moria. Then she discovered role playing, first in MOOs. Soon she found a MUSE that let her be a Vulcan in Star Fleet. This is where she got her first taste of MU* space. Finally she could act out the dreams of that teenage girl in the virtual realm. Piloting in space became a deep draw for her and off she went searching out other types of space engines to try by joining other MU*s. D-space, Chuckles, HSpace and finally RSpace.
She found OtherSpace when a HSpace test MUSH was closed down and she wandered in, looking for another place to fly. First character created never really became a pilot, but fulfilled another love of hers, Native American culture, Stargazer was born 11 June 2000. She is still alive and well in the continuing saga.
Still the hunger for piloting nagged and her next character on OS was a female pilot and pirate. Now that teenage girl with dreams of space has 3 major characters who's job is piloting and several more who know how to pilot on the side. She has other alts on other MU* who also still RP and fly those games spaces.
It's a blast. Hikaru and Brody are always throwing in some major change to RSpace that keeps a pilot character on their toes. I love it, see... I'm that teenage girl who dreamed of flying and living in space. Now, virtually I can have that and much more. So maybe I can't fly in real life, but I'm a hotshot pilot virtually and that's pretty darn cool if you ask me.
Am I addicted to OtherSpace? Well, you decide: I'm on the staff, I have over 14 characters on OtherSpace alone and I'm connected a lot.
So come to OtherSpace and fly where RSpace offers many challenges due to it's changing nature.
