The 4th Coming is, as far as I recall, the only MMO I’ve ever played. It was released in the late 90s and is basically a more MMO-y Diablo clone. I played it obsessively for awhile (it was a free game and there were free servers!) and then the server I played on went down for a day or two and I tasted freedom never played it or any other MMO again.

Question: Do you remember if SG people played this game? In my memory, yes, but I also remember playing it when I lived in the suburbs. That’s a pretty short overlap, the first half of 2000, but time moved slowly back then, so it’s not impossible.

Also I’m amazed to discover the game still exists. And fun fact I just learned in my research for this thread: it was originally developed in Montreal!

T4C, folks.

I don't remember if it was that, but there was a free MMO that I played with some SG members that I got kind of addicted to until I realized I didn't even really like it. The I stopped playing and swore off all MMOs.

There weren’t a lot of MMOs free or otherwise at that time so good chance that was it.

If so, glad it saved us both from MMOs!

Did it look like this?

I don't recall the exact setting there, but that was the graphical style.

Seems very likely, then. I do vaguely recall other SG people joining. Like YY, maybe.

I don't recall ever hearing of this. Looks like Ultima Online though.

Yes. I remember playing with YY sometimes although she quickly got way ahead of me.

I also recently bought an album of rare recordings by a barely-known never-released-an-actual-album eccentric soul band called The 4th Coming. It is very enjoyable! Glad someone scraped together all their 7” single releases.
