Roleplaying in the Spiral...

Greetings my wizard friends,

The other day, I was strolling in Krokotopia and I was looking at the wizards interacting there and kept thinking... Is there anyone who roleplays in the Spiral? I have tried a few times to do so but it seems the other wizards just did not understand what I was doing and thought I was just plain wierd. *smiles*

I know this game is geared towards a younger audience but I was still hoping somehow I would find someone that would be willing to RP their character and have some kind of story-driven chat. I love writing stories and making my various characters alive with backgrounds to flesh them out. I like to find motivations as to why they are who they are (Ok, I have been tabletop roleplaying for almost 20 years now, so it helps). It just makes the game much more enjoyable for me.

So... who is up to it? *winks*

As you all know, Oran is a healer and I hope to start crafting with him soon (Since this is another thing I enjoy doing in MMOs). He is kind-hearted and who go out on a limb to help anyone in need. But why? Why is he the way he is now?

That is something you will have to stay tuned to find out ;)

Until then... Merry Travels in the Spiral!

Oh... and here is Grace! *smiles*

I just thought I would drop a picture of my daughter's character, Grace Jadebloom. Can you tell what her favorite colors are? *giggles*

The journey begins

Greetings everyone,

I am Oran DayGem, a Theurgist, and this is my first blog.

Why blog about my character in Wizard 101? Simply because I love this game. This is the first time I truly feel like an integral part of a MMO world and the fact every (well, almost) NPC has a voice to tell their story is great! I arrived in the Spiral more than a month ago and I plan to stay for a while (read for the next year).

Also, the fact my daughter enjoys this game is a big plus. It makes me smile to hear her say that she wants to play to that "game with my wizard in it". 

What to expect from this blog? Letters from my characters (Oran & Grace), thoughts about the game from a veteran MMO point of view and some stuff I am thinking about (Crafting Item of the week anyone? ;) )

I do hope you will enjoy reading this blog and see you in the Spiral!
