Aloha, friends!

While I was active in Aenea, I kept my notes (Aenea and NwN) and whatnot in a nondescript binder, so's I could have access to them as I played.  Throughout the years after its creation, my Aenea binder served as a source of comfort to me, especially when I felt lonely or depressed.  It was a way to connect with the world without actually being in the world.

Then, as most of you know, my family and I moved from Pennsylvania to Hawai'i.  It was an extremely exciting, yet wildly turbulent and stressful time in my life.  We took very little with us, particularly on the cross-country train ride.  My Aenea binder was on that whole trip with me, providing a sense of familiarity as we embarked into the unknown.

The binder holds a special place in my heart to this day.  Whenever I get lonely, or pine for familiar things long removed, I open up the binder and page through to a familiar character.  A little bit of reading, a little bit of nostalgic remembrance, and I am good to go!

While recently in discussion with Robert Ochs the other day [some may remember him as Phyllick Delucian], the subject of notes came up.  He sent me some snaps of his notes from Aenea, and I reciprocated a few days later with these pictures of my notes.  I then thought that the community at large might enjoy seeing how I kept up with my PCs through the years [and how I worked out some of their tongue-twisting names]!

I will update this as I am able.  I don't have access to a scanner, so these images are pulled from my phone's camera.  Please, enjoy!  Of course, comments and *especially* discussions are welcome!

[A note for those unfamiliar with the spoiler tags:  just click on the "spoiler" button, and it will reveal the image.  Click again to cover the image.]

This is my Aenea binder.  It's a pretty nondescript 1 1/2 inch D-ring binder, with only a single sticker on it.

This is the binder spine, which holds the only sticker on the binder.

An old magazine cover I keep on the inside of the binder - I have a soft spot for Elmore works!

This is an article from 2006 about NwN being used as a teaching tool.  Before we moved, I was tracking that particular module down.

These are the index tags.  They were made from pink post-it notes, and all of them taped to the page for structural reinforcement.

There are a number of tags, most of them for player characters.

It's been a while since I have played this game but noticed this post pop into my mail and thought I would come by to say hi to those still around Smile
I also got a lot of offline notes from when I used to play the game more regularly. Your notes look a lot more organized than mine though. Laughing

Angel of Death, so lovely to hear from you!
There are still a few of us around, we celebrate birthdays and talk about the good old days.
Unfortunately, with Aenea being gone, this place is largely deserted.

Have you investigated Neverwinter Nights Enhanced Edition? It has brought a lot of old names back to the game!

I would love to see your notes! A shared historical record of Aenea, if you will! I have more to share, I just haven't photoed them yet. I do so miss the server, and any little bit about it makes me feel a little better!

So don't be a stranger! stop in from time to time and say hi!
