Whoa, so, hey. I'm direwolfprimary. I'm from way back when ultimate rpg was on y! groups. Anyhoo, I was digging through old correspondence and came across some references to this place. So, I thought I'd stop by and say hello, see if anyone recognizes the name, and see what's been going on since the days of old.

(I see someone decided to put my handle on a sort of notables list. I think I'm more like a fallen one, but I won't argue.)

So, ah, hello.

Dire! Good to see you!

You probably don't remember me, but I've heard a lot about you! I've discussed in length about the URPG history with you and the other "notables" such as Flare, Figgy, Jose, Nin, and many others of the "founding fathers". You guys lived by the seat of your pants back then and all of us here can only imagine what it was like back in those pioneering days.

You're a living legend sir and you'll find that we're all glad to see you again. If you ever want to battle, trust me, you'll find your challenges answered tenfold by the numerous members here.

Well, I don't remember the name, but it's always nice to meet new people! ^^ Welcome back.

What is it with summer and with URPGers returning from inactivity? :o

Heh, you're looking at one of the first people to join the URPG. In fact, Dire ran the URPG for some time before passing the leadership to Figgy. That was quite some time ago since Figgy was the one who brought the URPG to PE2K.

They had a lot of fun ideas back then too, including special URPG teams composed of 4 people that spied, backstabbed, and battled each other. Sadly these are elements lost to time, but I'm sure were amazing at the start of the URPG.

Heh, just think, the URPG has been around since 1997. It's been going on for more than a decade!

Yeah, I recall those AIM messages; if nothing else, I'm sure I'll be pleasantly surprised by what's in my message logs. (You wouldn't happen to be a fan of Star Trek Voyager, would you?)

But wow, this brings back a lot of memories. Those were fun times. Perhaps, even, inspirational times; I mean, I almost committed to being a writer. 1997, huh? Some of us (most?) were kids back then; it makes me feel old somehow.

So, who from the "Old Guard," so to speak, are still around? I've been meaning to look up white_rider; I lost his contact info a while back.

Obviously HKim stand for Harry Kim from Voyager.

As for who's around... Flare comes by sometimes, we've got Scott and Jack still here. Dunno many other old members.

DIRE :x. Is it really you? :P.

Man, I remember back when I first joined and you and Figgy helped me out. You were always my favorite leader guy.

Probably won't remember me, but I was gotenks2610 (aka the god of beheading XD) back in the old Yahoo group / club / whatever.

Great to see you, hope you can stay a while ^_^.

Perhaps you remember a certain leprechaun, though I was pretty quiet back then. You passed my Reffing Test. Nice to see ya drop by, Dire. A lot has changed since our simple Yahoo days.

lol, you're hilarious Flare. Didn't know you made frequent visits. That's pretty cool.

It's also interesting to note that Dire passed Lep's ref test. Talk about connections! You could make a family tree of who passed who and find that everyone leads back to these "experienced" URPGers. Fascinating stuff.

URPG wise, yes XP.

We were called vets when we first got to the boards. Granted, it fits to many more people now, but the term fits for the 'originals' because that's how it was first used.

And CURTIS! I suck at CoD, but I'd be happy to play Halo with you sometime ^_^.

NIN! You posted!?

And we still need Figgy, Marmar, Jose, Stripeduck, and Fair to make it a complete set. Oh, and Jag.

You and me both bro haha...he always bailed on that final elite battle against me...

haha, but I eventually won by default. == Not exactly a satisfying.

I'm pretty impressed with what PE2k did with this place...Its still alive and kicking man.

How come the first thing people say to me when I post is "Can I have some money?" ==

And we're missing Naz, and Keegan and Moony and Pelican....oh god now we're talking OLD.

That was like...Vets = there before the millenium ...shiiiiiiiiiiit....

@Scott: Yo sup BKing. Long time no talk, how's it kickin?

Bah, I'd settle for only Naz out of that list, he was basically the mascot for the URPG. I have talked to him every great once in a while.

And Figgy is alive, Fair talked to him a while back in some random DDR forum or something.

Great to see ya Nin, you rock.

Teesh ... I'm sure she's out there somewhere xP

I could probably still get in touch with Figgy, if I can remember where I found him. :eh:

P.S. Hi everybody!

P.P.S. I still have this Death Note Avatar/Sig combo? lol...I should probably get around to changing it sometime. XD

Waaaaaaaay back when before the millenium, in the Ultimate RPG, we had a legendary egg system that only founding members had, and you could fight them for it, but the owners always were allowed ridiculous advantages in the battle to make it hard to get... Well it was after the Ultra RPG that got formed that I finally nabbed that egg from Pelican in a good old battle :P.

@Marth: Haha Listing TMs was soo tedious. But back then the URPG was my full time job. I did story grading, ref testing, Elite battling, Pokemart, starter request and at one point, modding, blacklisting, rule writing...everything.

@Scott: Sup Burger King, how's it kickin? Naz would never have made mod :P But he gave us a good old distraction every time we needed it. Don't forget Rock the movie(s). Don't hug rocks :P.

Holy crap, I remember those battles. I was always laughing through those since it was so broken. It seemed like so much trouble that I made sure never to own or to try to own an egg.
