  • Strange to say, but even though Hrengor the Beholder was my alt, it felt like we looked at each other when we discover that one of his alts, Arbo the Starmage, played yet another

  • alt as CzsLsys0s d Ptypnu. Hrengor the Beholder ended up with his tongue in his eye when he tried saying her name. She kept repeating it but her pronunciation required a lot of hip
