When, for the 5th day in a row you're woken up at 5am by the cat yowling louder than your alarm clock and you think.

No, Elysian Towers and Merchant's Rest.
The RailRoads would be Elf Gate, The Rock (Fort Karr), Port Erasmus, and ???

You use emotes in speech. Example.

Ghostie: So, it's sad! I'm sitting all by myself today. On a Friday! Sniff.
Non-Avlisser (NA): Did you just say sniff?
Ghostie: *Nervous laugh* Uh, yeah. Imagine it with stars above my head. Like. *Makes a 66 99 sign with her fingers* Sniff!
NA: Sniff. Like an expression of sadness. That's so cute! haha
*Much laughter ensues*

When you're in your Mythology or English class and relate something someone did in the story you're reading to something your character did last night, prompting a several minute discussion with your teacher, who plays Avlis, about how exactly it fits in with the situation. (It's really nice have my mom for two of my classes every day)
And...
You've talked about hardly anything other than Avlis for two years, but you've only been playing for three months because you just turned 16.

When a good third of your "professional experience" section of your resume for grad/law school consists of things you've done for Avlis.

You walk around your local electronics superstore and see a 30 inch wide screen monitor and wonder how it would look on your desk and if your bowman would be able to shoot farther with it. :)

When you take better notes before, during, and after an IG event than you EVER took during your entire scholastic years!!


When your significant other spots your notes and inquires why you can pay that close attention to when they are saying something. :schauen:

When your in the office, in a meeting with directors and someone in the meeting refers to another indivual as "out of character" then you look at the person whom said that wondering who he really is on Avlis. Then you look back up at the others and they are noticing you giving the other guy an odd look. (awkward) It happened five mintues ago.
