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. 🙂
All my answers will be about my character Rakuno, my ratonga monk in Everquest 2. From this point on it will be him doing all the talk!
Question 20: Does your character have any irrational fears?
Not anymore, no. What I mean by that, and I know this is starting to sound repetitive, is that after I fled Freeport I was really afraid of the Dreadnaughts. So much that any sudden noise would make me jump on edge, trying to find what the source of it. If I saw any member of a race traditionally aligned with Freeport I would think they were spies for the Dreadnaughts. Even sleep wouldn’t bring me rest as I would wake several times at night with the certainty that they broke into my house and would drag me to Freeport for a public execution.
It too me many years of meditation to get over those fears and now I can live a normal life. Well, as normal as anyone that travels around the world facing all kinds of danger can have in any case.
Oh, and by that I don’t meant to imply I don’t get scared anymore. I still do. The gods know how many horrible things are in Norrath. The difference is that now I don’t let my fears rule over my life. I try to face them directly so I can keep moving forward.
