Last month, I challenged you guys to tell me a story about something that has happened to you in game. We all have those stories that we like telling, and here are a few. Pull up your story rug…
Ivy4Life told us about a D&D experience that started with “a large and….. naked troll is following us with a bag over its shoulder with two large balls inside” and left us hanging on “our wizard being stuffed into a bag, in the hands of the troll.” I have a feeling there are a lot more stories lurking here.
Suzita shared an epic EQ2 moment when a group of friends found themselves stuck–stuck at a door. There was nothing to do but laugh–and kick some butt. Thankfully, they got to do both!
Ninevi related an experience that hits a little close to home! I have a habit of getting stuck in terrain, and Ninevi tells the story of her and her gnome rogue buddy (gnome rogues ftw, I might add) and their precarious–and hilarious–experience of being stuck on a boat near a group of Horde in Tanaris.
Thank you for telling us your stories!
Now, for the July challenge:
A lot of us blogger types hang out on Twitter and other networks. Bloggers are obviously the communicating type, and that lends itself well to a community and envrionment like ours.
The thing is, many of us end up becoming friends, or at least friends of a sort. We share our personal lives sometimes: triumphs and defeats, announcements, struggles, fits of rage and moments of glory. I’ve done it. I’ve shared personal information here on this blog, I post some of my personal blogs to Twitter, and I talk way more than I should about myself (I’m sorry!).
It’s nice to sometimes get a glimpse into the writer behind the blog, the person behind the character. So here’s your challenge: give me a detail about yourself. Obviously, not everyone’s comfortable being super personal online or on a gaming-related blog, so the way you go with this is completely at your discretion.
You can tell me something about your gaming personality or about your favorite color. You can tell me how you got started playing the game you love to play. You can tell me how gaming affects your life (“just put my dad on follow, he knows the way to the restaurant.” True story. /facepalm)
Or you can get personal, if you want. Tell me about something you fear, something you treasure, something you’ve learned. Tell me about why you write. Tell me about why you play.
Tell me about you, because from what I can see, you’re pretty cool.
