While I had my share with Erik, I will never forget Uncle Adrian and... you know... Lord BoomBoom!!! Or the people Erik tried to kick out of his way, like Glacier, Darfix, Handow, Popsi and some others whose names I can not remember now.

I as well, miss the "Good Old days" of Fontan. Especially when Hamilton founded the "Light of Fontan religion, which name also ended up being the name of a new country called Light of Fontan. ReginaldII was very active during those times as Judge. And was the last man standing when LOF was destroyed by war.   

I'd like to run into the player of Hamilton. To see if he has any of the LOF Religion  info still available.

Did you mean Hannibal?

I played Hamilton, didn't do those things, and don't recall any old Fontanese Hamiltons either. I do remember an older Fontanese Hannibal though, with Sparky, Tempus, and various other LoFers.

Wasn't Hannibal the one who fought alongside Sirion for a while, was killed and then came back via a portal from hell to serve Fontan?

I don't remember that particular bit myself, but if so, it could very well be on the wiki. And it was definitely Hannibal Carthage that founded LoF the religion.

Wiki Search on Hannibal.

Pretty good list. A few left out, but I can't remember their names anymore. (God I'm old.) I would say there should probably be a Zog or two on there.

Necromancy!

Someone had me look up this thread. And I just realized it was five minutes until it was 1 year and 1 day, to the minute, since I started this thread. So I am now posting to bump it up, almost exactly 1 year, 1 day later. I am thinking an annual tradition of players nominating characters for inclusion would be positive for the community.

So, any new character nominations? Now that an initial foundation of characters through history has been established, I'd like to be a lot more selective on adding new names, hopefully no more than 1-2 per island. The fewest uppermost names of fame, infamy, legend, and influence on an island. Characters that no longer exist and will not be returning. So who qualifies for that within the last year?

Can we get a full list of characters already on the list so we don't overlap?

Queen Evangeline Uceek . Holded the highest bounty i ever saw (something around 8k gold). The bounty was collected by the best infiltrator at that time Guy Revan, brother of Alain Revan (Sirion's banker for long time).

Yea... I had a number of characters succeed each other on BT. They operated in different places and took different angles on things, but overall tended to be pushing things in the same direction. Louis-Joseph founded the Blood Cult, which pulled some neat things off for a while even after I got bored and deleted him. Not sure how long I played him, but he had a fairly long career. Jean-Olivier's ended earlier, dying in battle soon after taking power in RoF. Then there's Nicolas, who  pushed Enweil out of its torpor and into war, setting off a number of wars that would spark conflicts for ages to come, before dying defending Enweilieos from the monsters. Guillaume picked things up, eventually becoming ruler a few times, and founding IVF. Many of those spent some time in the North of the West stirring things up over there, and at other times influencing agents. I often had two characters in two distant realms at a time to better pull off pan-beluaterran intrigue.

It was fun while it lasted, when BT was still very populous, when there was still a lot of active players that were willing to go off beaten paths to shake things up, and when the geography lent itself fairly well to conflicts.

I'd have a hard time saying which one of these BT characters had the most influence, myself, though I suppose people will remember them differently according to when and where they played. JO had the shortest career (albeit not really that short), but he played a pivotal role in aligning the family onto Enweil and the profane. I actually started out with two characters in Fronen and was rather anti-Enweil to begin with. Then after being recruted into a failed coup, LJ exiled himself to Melhed, which had its uses but wasn't very determining on the family, while JO went to RoF, which definately set the tone and goal for the years to follow.

There were also a number of less notable characters, but Jean-Olivier, Nicolas, and Guillaume had similar impact on Beluaterra as Louis-Joseph did, I'd reckon.

That being said, nice to have a couple of my characters mentioned regardless. :P
