As a Milletian, my privelige to experience Erinn beside an array of animal companions is not taken for granted. My pets are always willing to travel to the deepest depths of any dungeon with me.
But first, it takes gaining that pet's trust - to reassure them they will be safe in this journey.
Vay, a timid young Ceraunus, has been having a difficult time with the bonding process.
However, I seemed to have had a breakthrough today when I visited him.
The creature's unsure posture and pinned-back ears were obvious as I approached. However, a glint in his eyes hinted at the fascination for the soft chicken chew I was holding. We had done this for a while now.
"Come here, it's alright," I said in a hushed tone, hoping my endearment was perhaps palpable to him. Minutes seemed to pass before the Ceraunus finally inched forward and was within arm's reach. His frame was considerably taller than mine despite being just a cub.
The chew was taken from my hand, and I assumed our daily interaction would end there; but this time, he did not immediately retreat into the forest. His eyes tentatively met mine and he seemed to stare into my very being. I soon found myself talking to him.
"Vay, I know you're scared, but I'm here to protect you and give you a home. You'll have so many siblings to play with, and all the chews you want! ...And, it would make me really happy if you joined me. Can you think about it? Please?"
After some hesitation, Vay licked my hand for the first time. And it was not simply because I was just holding his favorite treat. That was the beginning of our bond.

I started playing Mabinogi in June 2011, when I was in a friend group of 5 and we all wanted an MMO to play together. One of them found this game and we decided to try it out. It took us a long time to learn the combat mechanics but I remember we eventually all helped one another beat g1-3, and spent a lot of time in either Tir Na Nog fighting zombies or Bangor of Another World. We would sit in dungeons for hours just talking or messing around. That friend group is what made Mabi enjoyable until about 2013-14, when all of them except me moved on from the game. From then on I played solo for two more years, mostly staying in Iria.
I took a hiatus from the game from 2015-2017 in order to focus on college, and because I had nobody to play with now so it got pretty lonesome. I came back in December 2017 and a few days later I met a person who is now a very good friend to me, and later about 3-4 others that I still play with. This is when I really started playing seriously and leveled up/trained skills much faster than I did before. I spend more time on the game than I probably should but ah well..
My biggest reason for staying on the game is definitely the nostalgia factor; it is the source of great memories and times with people whom I do not talk to anymore (since our old friend group is now disbanded). I'm a huge animal lover so the sheer amount of pets available is also a large appeal to me. Also the combat mechanics and the talent selection is pretty unique as well. I can see myself staying here for a couple more years and I am excited for the future content.
