Last night, the lovely Jaedia came and visited me in one of my strongholds. I showed her around and there were fireworks. I am seriously in awe about how many MMOs she is playing while I already find it difficult to give the three I play their due. I briefly considered reactivating my Wildstar account but decided against it when I remembered how much the combat style stressed me out — even though I miss the little plot of land I own in that game.
Player housing is one of the things I can seriously sink an awful amount of time and ingame-currency into. One of the reasons is that strongholds give me a place ingame where I can be on my own while still connecting to other players via chat, or invite them over. I like that they allow me to interact with other players on my own terms. I love interacting, but most of the times it stresses me out due to anxiety issues. One notable exception is roleplaying — and no, I have no clue why.
Another “place” that offers a light-touch way of interaction is Twitter, and here I want to say a big thank you to Madmar and his #swtorfamily that got me into contact with so very many people. You are doing good work, man!
I very much enjoyed this year’s Newbie Blogger initiative. Didn’t post as much as I planned, but definitely feel the itch to be a more active blogger again. Yay! I am grateful to all the nice people who organized and participated in the event.
And on that note: a big thank you to all the awesome bloggers out there. Feel free to say hello and visit me ingame when you are playing SWTOR on the Progenitor server ( Sa’jaak on Republic side, Kheelar or Aszhra on Empire side). Or, you know, you can always bribe me to roll a char on your server… (kidding! I’ll probably end up having chars on all but the PVP servers anyway.)
