The Vampires Tavern

I occured to me that the tales and knowledge of the Vampires Tavern is almost lost. This is sad so let me give you a little piece of history.

Once, long times ago when chatrooms were pure ASCII (with a hint of colour) and the allmost only messenger was ICQ. Yes indeed, the beginning of commercial internet... In that wonderfull magical world there was a chatroom server hosted by the noble Lord Yahoo. No, he was't named because he shouted yahoo all the time, he just weared a T-shirt with Yahoo on it (just below his chainmail and yes it looked silly). That server contained in the hidden corners of the "Romance" section a hidden room called The Vampire's Tavern. This room was the most concentrated magical place on the complete internet. In the good days the room was filled with at least a hundered beings all sorts. We did some chatting, updated us with the latest news, got drunk and did stupid things. But most of all it was the best fun ever.

As always: everything comes to an end and so did The Vampire's Tavern and finaly the complete chat server. I too am guilty for this for I've abandonned the Tavern for years. I once returned and I only found some small remains of The Vampire's Tavern. I think that at the moment even those traces have perished.

As a tribute to The Vampire's Tavern I've created a Yahoo group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/thevampirestavern . Maybe the group will be found or maybe not. At least The Vampire's Tavern will not be forgotten.

    Hello Hello,

    I've kept in contact with a few of the people from the Vampire tavern as well. Would love to know what everyone else is up to as well.

    I'm a little late in the game with this but I used to be a regular of the tavern as well. I'm so relieved to find after even this long that there are others that have kept the memory alive. It's been years since then and it was all starting to feel like a memory that only I retained. If any of you are still out there, get in contact with me. It'll be nice to catch up after such a long time.
