It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, but better late than never right?
To start off we have a blog run by Mace. Mace was a beta user who ran the Fantage Geek blog, a.k.a Mace’s Fantage Cheats. Mace was also a member of the Army of Fantage. Mace also started (as far as I can tell) the Fantage Forum. There’s not many people there anymore, but every so often people come back for some nostalgia.
Anyway, his main blog, Fantage Geek. Besides the regular reporting on Fantage events, Fantage Geek was one of the few blogs to feature Fantage SWFs. Mace and his friends were reasonably well known on Fantage around 2009/2010.
It’s been a long time since I’ve heard talk of Fantage Japan. I recently found the artist and designer who adapted Fantage to create Fantage Japan. Back around 2010, Fantage, or part of the rights to Fantage was sold to Korean online gaming giant Nexon. Nexon created Fantage Japan which became REALLY popular with regular Fantagian’s from Fantage.com because on Fantage Japan you could get all the items that were rare on Fantage.com. As seen below, you could easily get dancing king/queen crowns, and items such as the Shamrock glasses which were extremely rare on regular Fantage.com at the time. It was also popular because you could create “rare” usernames (see “pony” in the image below). Maybe the best thing about Fantage Japan was that there were no Premium Members, everyone could get all the items.
