I do not remember, but .... it was after a persistent search for sites other than neo-Nazi role playing forums. I never knew that the Byzantines were Aryans before this. I remember finding Romanity first, which I still think is a great site despite a few justified criticisms. I also found CAF a few months before OCnet. I found OCnet way too belligerent where multiple people picked on a single person whether justified or not (at least that was my impression). If someone wants to correct me, that is fine.
