Wow, what can I say? I began playing Cleft of Dimensions in the
beginning of the millennium with a friend. The overall atmosphere
wasn't too serious and we spent a lot of time being drunk in Rocket
Town. For one reason or another, we stopped playing (in 2003, I
believe). I came back in 2007 and things changed greatly and for the
The playerbase, completely different from the first experience,
retained its friendly goofiness with a dash of seriousness when
