mm6 and memory

    Kind of off topic, but I get the feeling that at least some of us are 'of an age,' and may have the memory problems that come with that. I had an odd experience in the last few days and wonder if any others have experienced something similar. I've been playing this game since it was released and have probably at least started hundreds of time and completed it many times.

    It's been about a year since I last played (I'm about due to start again) and I read a few of the fairly recent posts and was surprised at my lack of memory. Somebody mentioned the Prince of Thieves and I couldn't remember where the prince was located. Also mentioned was Lord Kilburn's Shield and I couldn't exactly recall that quest either. Both of those eventually came back to me with some thought, but somebody also mentioned Gharik's Forge and I just could not remember where that was or what it looked like. I actually had to go look that one up. Of course it was all very familiar once I looked it up gut I was surprised I just couldn't make the connection.

    I'm just wondering if anyone else has had similar experiences.

Nope. First time I've heard of anyone ever forgetting anything. Hope this helps.....

    But I do find it more difficult to learn things, and my memory tends to "mislay" things for a short time 5-30 minutes is typical. I couldn't remember a phone number today, but 15 mins later, I had it.

    I think my memory is just getting really, really bad, but this was not the place to bring it up.

I should imagine that by now I'm probably the second-oldest.

    But hey I find old age an adventure! And there are some advantages, for instance, I haven't needed to pay for prescribed medicines in years, and I can do all my travelling at off-peak times and off-peak fares.

    I assume you guys are still listening to Glenn Miller and the Andrews Sisters on 78 rpm records.

Glenn Miller, yes, but not the Andrews Sisters

    Unfortunately, our 78's have all succumbed to the reefs and rocks of time, but I understand the smaller modern ones (45's I think they call them) are a lot more forgiving when you drop them

    It's a pity, that. We had a very nice 78 of Paderewski playing the Moonlight Sonata Trouble was that the B side was completely flat . . .

    Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington and others. I'll even pull up the Andrews Sisters on Youtube every once in a while. My dad managed a small town radio station so we had stacks and stack of old records at our house, including a lot of 78's. I still have some of those original records in a box someplace; many others I wish I'd kept.

Yeah. When there were five of us, . . .

    . . . we bought a large house (large for this country, anyway) and we had plenty of room to store things. When the kids grew up and moved out, we found we had a number of rooms we didn't enter from one week's end to the next, upkeep was costing us more than we liked, and the garden was getting difficult to keep under control. So we downsized, and an awful lot of stuff had to go. In point of fact, we got rid of more than we kept, and that included all the 78's as well as an old wind-up gramophone that we'd inherited. But I kept all my 45's. They're in a box . . . somewhere or other . . . *scratches head*

    Nothing to apologise for. Perfectly appropriate comment, in my opinion after all, it was MM6 you were having difficulty remembering, wasn't it?

Actually, it was kind of a revelation for me.

    This involved something relatively recent and something that I was very, very familiar with. What I realized after the fact was that I had no trouble at all remembering all the details of the game. Even though I couldn't place the Prince of Thieves, once I did I remembered every twist and turn in the sewers of Freehaven and where every rat and cleric were located. Same with Gharik's Forge - I could see every little bit of it in detail once I realized which dungeon it was. And there are lots of other examples - I can 'see' the details of every zone and every dungeon even though I may not recall their names immediately.

    So it was just the names that escaped me (temporarily, usually), and in some ways those are not essential to playing the game. I guess if the visual details of Enroth start to escape me I'll be a little more worried.

Forgetful? Me? No, of course I remember you! (What was your name again?)

    As arguably the eldest TELPer, I can sympathize. (Of course, Papa Elf is older than I, but he never played any of the MM's.)
    If any of you are eighty or older, then I relinquish my title as eldest.
    I forget commands a lot. When I got to the MM6 add-on to MM10, I couldn't for the life of me remember how to use the flight scroll hidden on that wall. I remembered the wall, how to get to the "secret" New World Computing freebie location, and where all the trainers are. I also remember most of the map layouts for nearly all of that game. But the town names, no. Peoples' names fade in and out, both in games and in RL.
    So, welcome to the club. Sixty is about when it all starts. As the late actress Bette Davis famously said, "Old age ain't for sissies!"
    So let's have a round of Elf's Aged Ale. This keg is self-filling, so there's plenty for all. So set up the glasses, mugs, steins, whatever, if you would please, Bones. Prosit!

    Whew, for a number of months I have been worried about memory issues. You list made me feel better as I still recall all of those and have not played a game in maybe two years.

    I normally was getting in at least one game a year, but it has been a while.

    For the record I will be 71 next month. I do have issues with not being a quick to remember things. I still remember that Peter is older, lol.

    Well I do not have any wine glasses, but I concur with enjoying life.

    My wife and I both lost our youngest brothers. All of my long time friends have passed, so I know that it could be worse.

    That is why I retired at 55, did not want to do it and then die soon after, like my dad. The boss lady is still working at 72, I do not envy her getting up and going in. She has been doing weekend lately as well, crazy.
