Bladewir is a silly and loud Dwarf with a very long red beard, who resides on a little hard drive on a little server, for which his creator pays a monthly fee to keep him fed while he's at work. Bladewir likes trouble. And ale. He also has a 5 gold piece a day "eating disorder". Oh sure, he has to put on his dwarven trousers one leg at a time like the lot of us, but he's not an ordinary run-of-the-mill small guy.
You see, Bladewir is really an actor. He gets Scale pay (aka minimum wage) for acting like an avatar that is controlled by some dolt with a keyboard and mouse. He gets to go on wild adventures (more like misadventures) taking him across many a dangerous land, fighting the good fight while looking for that "Sword of a Thousand Truths". And the dolt with the keyboard can be such an ass sometimes.
BUT, Bladewir can take on many other incarnations. "Blade" as his ex-wife prefers to call him, can be a pirate sailing the high seas, a space-aged bounty hunter hot on the trail of a wanted warlord, a hobbit eating pie, or a soldier in a war to save the universe.
You see, Bladewir is the personification of what I CAN'T be, which is why I like being Bladewir - err, umm I mean controlling Bladewir. Yeah thats what I meant. He can do many things that I simply cannot, and he works on the cheap. Besides, where else are you able to be a swashbuckling pirate with your own ship for $14.99 a month?
This is why I play MMORPGs. This is why I play videogames. I may not be very good at it, but they are a great diversion and stress reliever. Read Bladewir's Blog to follow the random drivel that spews forth during our adventures together. Thanks for reading!
And if you are interested, I have started up a website devoted to the MMORPG. Please feel free to visit!
