This post is part of The 30 Days or ARPil event created by Pizza Maid of Pizzamaid.moe. You can find more information about it in here and the 30 questions here. If you are interested on seeing who is participating on the event, there is a block to the right with all blogs that are part of it too. Let me know if I forgot someone or put someone in there by mistake. 🙂
Since I didn't make a post in the last few days I will do a catch-up with this one. I am skipping question 27 though since I am not into music enough that I could pick anything I'd feel right for Rakuno.
All my answers will be about my character Rakuno, my ratonga monk in Everquest 2. From this point on until question 29 it will be him doing all the talk!
Question 28: If your character’s life was a genre, what would it be?
Uh... I am not really into books so I don't know what kind of genres are. Adventure, I guess? Is that a genre?
Question 29: How does your character smell? Do they wear perfume or cologne?
Like fancy clothes I don't wear colognes unless it is for special occasions like weddings, holiday parties and so on. The rest of the time though... I dunno, I guess I smell like your average ratonga smell. *shrugs* I never really bothered to smell myself.
Question 30: And finally: Write a letter to your character, from yourself.
It is kinda scary to think we've been adventuring through Norrath for almost 9 years now. Everquest 2 might be the MMORPG I played the longest so far (even if I've been quitting the game for longer and longer periods of time). And even my times where I have been actually invested into the game it hasn't been all smooth sailing either. I guess that is just how it goes with any online game.
Still the good times certainly outweigh the bad. Through you I've found some good friends, found a good creative outlet through house decoration and even started blogging. All things that I feel my life would be a lot more poor if I hadn't experienced them.
Heck, I even became lazy and started reusing character names in every game I play, yours being the first pick whenever I feel it is appropriate. So even if I ever find myself quitting Everquest 2 for good, know that you will live on, as long as I do, in some form, in some world.
But for now all I want to do is for us to keep kicking butts, taking names and building cool places in Everquest 2. Just like we always did from the start.
The 30 Days of ARPil has certainly been a fun and interesting event. I even kept with it better than I expected too, if I am going to be perfectly honest.
The best parts to me were probably because it allowed me to rethink Rakuno's background as wasn't exactly happy with how it originally was. It also allowed me to think of bits and parts that never occurred to me, giving the character slightly more depth. And like any good event it exposed me to other blogs I'd probably miss otherwise. I will probably be adding them to my blogroll in the future.
So, for all of that, I thank you Pizza Maid for starting The Days of ARPil. Thank you also to everybody who read my posts during this month even if my roleplaying isn't that great and my screenshots even worse.
