It has been a while since my last post but between playing Midkemia Online and trying my hand at Diablo 3 I have not had much time to get things down.
So, Bobby of the Pathfinders, how have things been getting on? Well, it has been a hectic few months in Midkemia for Bobby and he has seen his responsibilities and his position in the Pathfinders increase exponentially. It all started in the annual guild forum, held every Midwinter, which is once every 25 days in real life or there about. This forum outlines the work the Guild does for the city and the Kingdom of the west and it honors three of the most active and helpful people within the guild with a medal of service.
The first of the three medals went to the Pathfinder Ranger Ragnulv for outstanding commitment to the Pathfinders, the second went to an Archivist and member of the newly formed Logistics squadron named Loria who has showed an extreme commitment to all aspects of both her positions in performing her Duties and also helped raise said Squadron from idea to realization. The third medal went to Bobby, for his work as an Eagle and his generosity with helping the Novices of the Guild and for providing his services as a Smith, tailor and Alchemist to the City and the Guild.
During the guild forum it was announced that the current Eagle Captain would be stepping down this Mid-Summer and retiring from active duty though he will remain a Pathfinder. This means that a replacement needs to be trained in order to take his place. Now when it was announced that this person would be me, nobody was more shocked than I. So now I am in the final stages of training and I have learned so much and even lead my first ever siege to victory, achieving dominion of Sar-Sargoth’s forces to regain control of Highcastle in an epic battle which raged for almost 2 hours. Those two hours were the most fun I ever had in what I believe to be the best MMORPG of 2012, or indeed ever. Nothing can beat the adrenaline rush and the high pace action of PvP in a text based MUD. Anyways, I digress. So there it is, Bobby is soon to be a Captain and even though he has only been active in Midkemia Online a little under 3 months he has already started to leave his mark on the world which will be a visible mark on the game for the rest of time in the form of buildings, help scrolls, weapons and armor designs. If you want to play a game that has the potential for you to play however you want with almost no constraints then this is the game for you.
On the game itself, a new promotion was announced this month where by Gift Bags have been given to all players who have purchased credits for their characters from the Midkemia Online website with extra bags given at preset increments of credits bought. I have seen some people pulling out artifacts worth 2000 credits from these gift bags and so it is not a promotion to be taken lightly.
As for this week’s lottery, I have bought 10 tickets and I am eagerly waiting for it to be drawn as there is a rune of vernal blasting up for grabs which causes health to be restored with every critical hit scored, and considering my Crit rate is 20% it will help me immensely with my goal of reaching the big 100.
