Hey Silkroad players,
My name is Z and I used to be a Silkroad player many years ago. I first started on Babel, led a small guild named Holy. But then years later I joined Venus under the name Friends, became a part of the Avalon legit movement, and started the Fable union. We had some really good times together with the Avalon and BH guilds.
However, what many people didn't know was that I was actually on my deathbed at the time. I was 18 years old when I started Fable, and I was told I was going to die due to a very severe illness. I was in the hospital, with not much hope left to achieve anything. But, despite losing touch with all my real life friends, I made tons of new friends through playing Silkroad. With everyone's help, I grew to be more and more optimistic with my condition, and eventually, I actually recovered from it.
I now run a video game development company. We're located in Boulder, CO, USA. I gave a TEDx speech about my journey just a couple months ago and I'd like to share it with everyone who's still playing the game!

If you have any questions, comments, or want to reconnect (say hi if you remember me from the game!), feel free to email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
I wouldn't be alive today without Silkroad. Thanks again everyone for being here for me.
