It was a sort of second renaissance of Narfell back in 2009. I ended up sticking around and developing Belma'r into a much bigger part of the world. Or at least the other players made me feel like he was. I was never involved in DM plots before this, and I loved conferencing with players about what was going on.
The Hungry One plot was all kinds of awesome. Belma'r fought to defend an Aurlite shrine from another PC. Nearly had Rary turn on Belma'r because of that, he would have if Belma'r had been more violent about it.
It was also during that plot line Belma'r got to take on Penguanis during a side quest, and helped save a pocket plane of Slaadi (The Second one he's saved, having already been dubbed from him. I was not expecting that pit fiend and was glad to have Maria and Benji backing me up. (We also had a hapless level6 with us who I can't recall).
That final night to fight the Hungry One seemed to last forever. I wanted to sleep so bad at the end of it, but I was -not- missing loot after putting in so many hours. I think I grabbed my piece of loot then just logged and went to bed. It was the first time in -years- that the server was full. Gave me hope that it wasn't a wasteland just yet, and I got a number of amazing years of roleplaying out of it.
