*Pops In*

Postby Lanku D'Certo » Mon Jul 03, 2017 3:15 am

Hello all! I think I had an account here ages ago, but I've been nostalgic for Lunar and while I'm playing Silver Star Story again, I decided to see if this place was still kicking around. Looks like there's still some life here after all! Cool beans!

I was part of the old Lunar EB site back at the beginning of the millennium and I know some of those peeps migrated to here. Anyway, I recently got my nephew into the games and he absolutely loves them. I'm doing my part to keep the amazing story that is Lunar alive. I've even got a friend who's going to paint an ocarina of mine(Yes, I took it up because of Lunar) to look like Alex's. I can't wait to get that. It's gonna be amazing. I'll definitely show it off to you guys when it's done.

Anyway, toodles and looking forward to getting to know all of you, maybe some of you again.

Certainly sounds familiar. I was Emperor Blaze or EB as they called me.

I remember you, or at least that user name. Obviously after more than a decade my memories of what people actually posted are very hazy.

I haven't done so in a while, but if you do want to take a trip down memory lane, a decent number of threads have been preserved on the Internet Archive, though it takes a bit of work to uncover them.

Off the top of my head, Sonic#, Shiva Indis, and Ardent Fox all used to post on LEB as well. There are probably others I am forgetting.

Would you guys mind sharing that old forum's url? I mean, I know it's not longer there, but I'd interested in throw it to Archive.org and see what it looked like. Thanks :)

I posted there occasionally, but it's been years and I barely remember it. Nonetheless, welcome! :)

Well, I'm a completely different person 15 years later, as we all are. Anyway, if you wanna check out the archives, use these two addresses. There aren't too many forum bits saved, but there's quite a bit of old stuff there.

http://www.lunareb.com/cgi-bin/Ultimate.cgi - For the old boards
http://www.lunareb.com/cgi-bin/ubb/ultimatebb.cgi - For the new boards

Those are for the forums, obviously, but Kris never saved too many of the sections. The old RP section has a bit of stuff, though. I randomly go back and drown in nostalgia. Actually, one of the stories in the RP section inspired me to rewrite it and use it for a screenplay for film school. I'm going to be shooting the first bit of it this coming semester.

Welcome! (Or welcome back!)

And oh, dude, you play ocarina as well? I think that looks like one of the Songbird Dragon Tooth ocarinas in your avatar?

I was tempted to try to get someone to paint one of mine to look like Alex's -- maybe I'll try to do that myself one of these days with a blue glazed sweet potato one I have (since I now have another better one it's less of a risk/sacrifice if that doesn't go well... ...I'm not too good with arts and crafts).

It's actually one from STL. The Aria in G. I do have a few from Songbird, though. I've got some from all over the place, actually. One from Japan, a couple from Italy. Most are from STL and Songbird, though. I have something like 20 of them, I think. I've got someone who knows how to use a kiln properly, which is why I'm letting her paint my ocarina like Alex's. That's gonna be the ultimate fan item, cause no one else is gonna have that.

My recollection is that a fair number of topics on the old boards were in the archive but almost none for the new boards. Navigation can be an issue since there's not always a great match between what links you can click on and what got archived, but you can play around with URLs and wildcards to uncover quite a bit.

LEB had a lot of forum drama. It was the first forum I ever belonged to, so I just kind of accepted the way things were there as normal at the time. It certainly had a different feel compared to these boards.

I think it had a lot of drama cause the majority of us were in our teens at the time. Though I remember the older folk bringing their share of baggage. That said, I miss Lunartic and the others. I'm glad some of us are here. It may just be nostalgia talking, but those were some really good times. Those guys were probably my first online friends that I really cared about. Anyway, happy to be here now. I'll show off my ocarina collection soon.

Oh man, very nice! If you're able to get that done then please post pics of it.

I, uh, have an ocarina from Japan that was made in Italy... (it's Ti Amo, but I bought it at a shop in Kyoto). I only have three: two from Songbird (a sweet potato, and a dragon tooth -- the latter has the best sound quality I've heard in an ocarina), and the one Ti Amo. I did get a chance to talk with some folks at both STL and Songbird at a few conventions, so I definitely like both their products.

Do you have any wooden ocs by the way? One of these days I want to treat myself with one of Charlie Hind's wooden alto ones, but considering the expense it's kind of low on my priorities right now (...even low on my musical priorities -- one of those would cost as much to completely refurbish my old alto sax).

Lunartic used to post around here more often, but has been really busy since a major move a couple years ago (she's doing well, just, like, not posting around so much). I don't recall who all else used to frequent the old Lunareb boards, especially since I never did myself.

It was nice having Lunareb around though. They hosted a lot of stuff we didn't have the bandwidth for at the time, so it was great having two major English-language websites and the Japanese-language LunarHope. ...now it's just us left. ....=/ KF

I do have one of Charlie's wooden ocs. It's very nice. A soft, mellow sound. Low breath requirement. His inline range is really nice and less expensive than his wooden sweet potatoes. You definitely get what you paid for, though. I recommend one if you're able to do the lower breath. It's easy for me to use too much, being that I'm a bigger guy.

I never posted at LunarEB, but my vague recollection is that the Lunartic who posts here is not the same one who posted there (and I think at the WDMB and maybe the Shrine to Ghaleon) years ago.
