A diary from my dear guild friend Ripplecloud, I've been too busy playing the game so I reposted her diary as it really just reflects my thoughts exactly!
On Oct 9, 2008, sometime in the middle of the night, an avatar that was wiped out months back was revived. As her bright red eyes opened to her new surroundings, a rush of memories poured into her consciousness and ripplecloud knew she was home.
The very first friend to welcome her was none other than her good friend Mimmy. But, Mimmy didn’t seem to know ripplecloud. In fact Mimmy behaved as if this was the very first time she met ripplecloud. Mimmy! Don’t you know me anymore?
And where is Sanrio Harbour? Room after room, ripplecloud searched for the exit of the strange house she was in. It was a long time before she finally staggered into the blazing sun of the harbour. But what is this?
The harbour looked strange as well. Her good friend the blue hedgehog Harinezumi was nowhere to be found at his favourite sun-tanning spot!
ripplecloud was mightily confused. :( It looked and felt like Sanrio Harbour, but everything was mixed up and different from the past! She was feeling lost too, and it felt somewhat like ripplecloud was starting all over again. Except that unlike the last time when she was all alone at Sanrio Harbour, there was tons of people this time round!!
Gulp! Perhaps, it wasn’t such a bad idea to start later than everyone else the last time? :\ This crowd looks daunting… 3 people chasing after 1 crab? 4 people whacking 1 starfish?
It’s lucky the creatures only get stunned, otherwise the wildlife of Sanrio Harbour would suffer a massive extinction!
ripplecloud felt dizzy at the thought and needed to sit down somewhere. That was when she finally found, to her great relief, the sight of familiar people :D who went “Hi ripplecloud!” :D Thank you so much!
Woohoo!! No more manual captioning of players names!!! XD
(screenie from BunnyWinx cos Bunny left before I screenied :( heehee, too slow…)
Finally a little spot of HKO that seemed friendly and normal :P I sat for a while with Piriotessa and GM-Calealen in my underwear (as GM-Calealen calls it XD) as well as my blog buddies BunnyWinx andNoliai ^_^ and we talked about the game (which I was highly unqualified to talk about since I just got started!!!)
But oh dear, the world of HKO is now so big with at least 20,000 people! How am I ever going to find all my guild mates and old friends in this mess?? But ripplecloud really wanted to meet all her friends in the game. So it was time to go off and continue exploring the strange new world of HKO and track down her friends!
And guess who I met next in Florapolis!! It was GM-RoAN, who still owed me a round of mini-game from closed beta XD (wahahahaha, elephants have long memories so have I… or at least my blog remembers for me heehee ;P)
But GM-RoAN was no longer the same too! :( You see, GM-RoAN was wearing a magical Elvis suit, which had the ability to make its wearer loony. So GM-RoAN was going around talking loudly to himself and thinking that somebody was blackmailing him!
I finally tracked him down on Daniel’s platform (except that Daniel is no longer there, sigh, this platform should be conserved and a Daniel statue put here, I tell you!!! It is a historic site! XD Muahahahahaha). But GM-RoAN seemed to think that I was the blackmailer and that he needed to flee from me :\
- GM-RoAN: I am going to disappear!
- ripplecloud: OK, go on. I am waiting to see you disappear…. go on, disappear :)
And then he did. = =!
It was so fast, I couldn’t screencap the yellow flash of light when he zapped down the platform and disappeared. :O
- GM-RoAN: Haa now you cannot find me!
- ripplecloud: … … ….
- ripplecloud: I will find you!! When you least expect it!! … Hahahaha muahahahaha *false bravado XP*
But first, I still gotta find all my other guild mates, closed beta friends and blog buddies. Where areyou my friends?
