i do remember being part of a group "alliance" called "we are shilla players….or WASP's"

great memories of this game :D

Yeah I really hope someone contacts you to recreate it! If i knew anything about coding i would but sadly i know nothing lol. But i will still check these forums out every once in a while in the hopes of it coming back. Jkiller was working on something with it for a while but haven't heard from him :(

Good evening former Shilla/Dark Traveler players.

Just popping in once again to share a quick hello. To step on my previous posts, you may remember me as Blink180dude, or Blink. I had other names which were not as popular, but during the Dark Traveler times, MediaThrall asked me to step in and help with the game design for the remake. My admin name was Chrome. I didn't stick around for more than a few months, but I was the person responsible for making the Mount Olympus area.

I come through every once in awhile and read comments left by former players, which about 85% of you I do remember (the name at least).

The last time I was here, I had offered my services on helping recreate this game, and I'd like everyone to know this offer still stands. As my programming skills are quite limited, I can only offer monetary funds to help pay for the domain, or costs associated with recreating the game.

I'm not the 12 year old smart mouth kid I used to be when I first started playing in the late 90s…and I still pop by here and the Shilla.org site every once in awhile to see if anything has changed. Nothing but a fool's hope I guess.

As a way to salvage the information we have, as it seems quite a bit of it is spread across all players, I'd like to see a drop box or file central of information that people can contribute to include information such as game information like what is on AA's site or even Sotrin's site… or possibly even some of the back end coding information. I have read that a few former admins do look at this page from time to time and I think it would be vital for us to have a centralized location with information that people could access, should anyone be attempting to recreate the game. Maybe just a fool's hope as well.

Anyways, I hope all is well. I recently became married, and am currently a Director of Operations in hotel management. It seems we all grow up to be something should it not be the 1300 Wall Score giant, draconian, elf, or kobold we dreamt to be.

Funny you mention Australia since I'm from there. Actually somehow your name (Radagast) seems familiar but I doubt I was the girl you're referring to. I can't even remember the name/s I went by back then, I was pretty young haha.

by Mystikari (guest), 26 Oct 2016 14:48

Adira and hestas did get married this year…. thanks facebook.

I remembered what hestas' name was in real life, though I had to go through Bonzo's friend list to find it exactly.

I wish I knew more about Melkor though. I really do.

And honestly, I don't really blame anyone for shilla. It was always a free game with ads and pop ups as a source of revenue. It was never a full time let's do this time of job, it was a side hobby. If hestas decided to move on and whatever, I'm okay with that.

I also do believe when Melkor said the code was deleted when they had server problems. How would I prove it differently?

Re: So ... wow. by BizarroBizarro, 13 Sep 2016 02:11

shilla.org has bin up for many years now, sadly it's only a dead page.
a frontpage with nothing behind it, TwoD (the wizard of death) i think it was that bought it during the time that the shilla version with mounth olympus came (thedarktraveler.com i belive the new addy hadto be, but it's sadly gone some years ago too). TwoD was selfish and keept shilla.org for himself. Even tho he didn't do anythingwith the site. Just and empty farse to get people to belive that he acctually was doing something

and when it comes to the game itself. sadly all old admins that had the codes for the game all went away and no one could be reached, nor did anyone of them answer in aim/msn/skype/fb/mail. It seemd like that they didn't want the game nor the code to keep on living.

i myself don't understand how they could just watch as 3mana version got so changed into forced mana chars, that was the killshot for the game. And sadly all you could do was to watch it crumple up and die. As before youcould choose how to play, but newer version forced you into the same kind of gameplay.

They got offered money for the older version, but stone cold no. same goes when the game finally hit the last breath and the stonewalling came towrds players and not answering anymore. No codes to share, hand over or even sell to players that wanted shilla to keep on going

Re: So ... wow. by BoredJediBoredJedi, 12 Sep 2016 10:39

No, Melkor and I didn't keep in touch. I did reach out to Hestas at one point via email after the game went offline but he never replied. I used to have his number, but that like everything else has disappeared over time. I haven't even talked to Thinkso in years … He lives like an hour away from me and I was thinking about getting back in touch with him earlier this year, life just got a little too busy.

Re: So ... wow. by AekaschaAekascha, 09 Sep 2016 17:21

Yeah, I was in GOTR for a while with Sotrin. Then I got invited to join KOTR. it's kind of hard to remember all the details, but Thinkso had a bit to do with that … When I became an admin, "Ashaint" kind of dropped of the face of the earth … So I wasn't so involved with the Clans anymore. I never felt right about being an admin and a player at the same time. Anytime I was actually playing the game it was pretty much as a tester and I would wipe the character when I was done. We generally hid those accounts from the wall too.

Re: So ... wow. by AekaschaAekascha, 09 Sep 2016 17:18

It is always nice to see a new message pop up on these old shilla helpsites. One of my great mysteries in life was "What happened to Melkor?". Any chance you know anything?

Thanks,
AA

Re: So ... wow. by AlyssaaarilaxAlyssaaarilax, 09 Sep 2016 12:24

Shilla.org was bought by an old player…. a player I think his name there was warlock….? I can't remember anymore. It's a side hobby that I doubt will really come to fruition but it's nice to see regardless.

One thing I miss… and I believe you were in KOTR back in the day, was clans. I was in a few, and I really enjoyed the bonds I had in them.

Re: So ... wow. by BizarroBizarro, 09 Sep 2016 07:34

I occasionally see if I can find anything new/old about this game which at one time meant so much to me. I was surprised to come across this on a google search and to see somewhat recent posts.

Different name on here, I don't go by my older names. Have not in a very very long time. If anyone sees this, you might remember me as Ashaint (Or Radagast when I became an Admin, sorry for those of you who may not remember me fondly (at all LOL) <__<; ). I saw posts from JK on here and I recall talking to him quite a bit back in those days. I remember BP, Bonzo, Thinkso, Hestas, Melkor … I had a really good friend I chatted with a lot, she was from Australia … I never knew what happened with her … I wish i remembered more names …

My cousin played too, I remember his character got stuck in a room (eternally) which got removed from the game at one point … ended his short career in Shilla. I remember all the crazy weddings we did, the chat sweeps … Hestas' crazy rainbow name tag … I could almost still recall the exact RGB code he used to make the admin's names "perfectly gold" as he once told me. I remember spending (what felt like) MONTHS it felt like updating all the code for the ocean, which I got shafted into accomplishing during the big reset (for those of you that don't know … the game engine was a nightmare to update as each "room" was a separately coded .html HTML/OS file … and the ocean area was massive … the html/os text editor was more evil than Melkor too …). I remember getting in trouble with Hestas for making diagonal directions in the "random" mapped volcano area because it made it easier for people to figure out. What was it? "Oops, dying sucks?" making me ragequit more than I care to admit …

Has anyone noticed or have any info why shilla.org is back up with some of the old graphics? Has someone bought it and remaking the game? I used to still have everything I worked on pretty well documented, even hand drawn maps from when I made some of the newer areas during that long reset where we updated a lot of the old HTML/OS code. When Melkor joined up and him and Hestas started making a lot of really complicated changes … I kind of had a hard time following and decided to quit. I think over the years though I've lost most everything to harddrive crashes. At one point Thinkso and I were working together on a different game I was coding in perl … but I ran into a lot of issues as the engine got larger and more complicated, mostly stuff at the time I wasn't skilled enough to sort out.

Anywho, glad to see that some of the players are still trying to kind of keep in touch! :) I have a few friends I had gotten pretty close to at the time, which I still think about and miss quite a bit …

So ... wow. by AekaschaAekascha, 08 Sep 2016 02:47

Yep…. I'm still here.

I look back at this and still remember the good times…. hard to believe we are coming to about a decade since shilla died. Feels like yesterday I was clicking away mindlessly and now I tend to just laugh at myself for doing it for as long as I did.

Real life time….

This year has been sad. I've lost 2 important people in my life. My mom and a co-worker who was my 2nd mom. My mom was having health issues for years and my co-worker was a tragic accident. Both these things took a long time to get over but at this point I'm doing much better mentally with life.

Better news…

I'm getting married!

That is something I honestly didn't think would ever happen but next year me and Nina are getting married. I couldn't ask for a better person to marry and I'm happy it's going to happen. Likely going to be inviting some old shilla friends so loco, nappa, an, blink, and Alyssa are going to get invites..

I still check this site now and then… I'm glad people from time to time talk about this game.

Jk's version I wouldn't know what is going on with it…. me and him were tight in the day but I don't think people use aim these days(god how old am i here?)… so I can't ask him.

I'd be down to see a mobile version just for fucks sake but all us young people are old now… getting married and stuff so I can't envision it happening.

Miss you all, until next time,
BP

I'm still here... by BizarroBizarro, 24 Aug 2016 04:05

Dude, I'm sitting here rewatching episodes of The Guild and randomly remembered Shilla! I googled it to see if it still exists and it brought me to this thread. I dunno if anyone remembers me, but I'm fairly certain my name was AkuYuni. I remember Hestas, and BP. I joined a guild around the time of the great server reset and I remember greeting ppl with pictures of swords lol
