So I know I mentioned that I was back in Guild Wars 2.
I dusted off one of my roleplay characters. Back when I first started roleplaying this character, he was a joke character that I wanted to just have around to watch people without having to interact. Because let’s face it. Sometimes, you’d like to roleplay without worrying about someone trying to hop into your pants.
And let’s just say the obvious, if you take yourself so seriously that you can’t handle something silly or light=hearted, you might be trying too hard. I’ve always been a whimsical roleplayer. When I still helped run a LARP (live-action roleplaying game), I often portrayed some of the more cutesy characters. I.E. A Country Mouse that came from the Fairy World leads a band of explorers to a Rat Poker Game to help gather intel as well as relieve some bad guys out of their hard-earned cash!
So playing a Quaggan, one of Guild Wars more adorable NPC races, is right up my alley. Quaggans for life! Sorry, Arena Net, but the Choya just did not vibe well with me. No one finds the cactus monsters adorable. (If you love them, I apologize and totally respect your fandom LOL.) The lack of merchandise for the Choya totally backs up my assertation.
I haven’t gotten that far into the content for the new End of Dragons storyline, but it doesn’t look like they’ve made any cute little mascot characters for the region. Personally, I think we need some Canthan-styled Quaggans. My opinion is heavily biased though so take that with a grain of salt.
But I digress. So much rambling today. One of the people that I had a lovely roleplay encounter with happened to mention they found… my roleplay character’s Twitter. I was actually floored. I forgot it existed. It really did bring me joy back in the day to update that silly thing, so I’ve got it “up and running” once more. As much as a fictional character can really Tweet.
I’m actually really enjoying myself over in Guild Wars 2. I’m not sure if it’s the nostalgia? Maybe it’s having the creative juices again after being stagnant in Elder Scrolls Online for so long? I absolutely still love ESO, but the change of pace and scenery was needed. Heck, even just loitering near the bank was a hoot.
Haha, I know I’m such a dork. Thanks for putting up with my silliness. I’ll catch you guys tomorrow.
