Hiya guys! Xmas is creeping up ever closer so have you done your shopping yet? Well, don’t panic if you haven’t even started. Christmas should be a time of reunion and joyous fun, not stress from having to buy people stuff they probably don’t need. XD
Anyway, I know I haven’t exactly been very active these couple of weeks but I HAVE been writing on my other blog which is a travel blog. If you’re bored…you can probably check it out for kicks. Hehe. It’s mostly on my travels to Taiwan and my personal thoughts about them. May or may not be helpful, but I hope my insights will be useful somewhere somehow. *beams*
In other news, I have been playing a lot of Aion. If you’re a gamer, you’ll know what it is. If you’re not…well, it’s a MMO that consists of creating a character from 4 basic classes namely warrior, mage, priest and scout. These classes will then split into 2 respective sub classes after you’ve reached level 10. So for warrior, you can pick from Templar or Gladiator. Mage will be either Spiritmaster or Sorcerer. Priest will be Cleric or Chanter. And last but not least, Scout will be ranger or assassin.
In my enthusiasm to try out the different classes, I created 3 different characters–1 Spiritmaster, 1 Gladiator and 1 Ranger. I started on the Spiritmaster first, then I got bored and went to do up a Gladiator for fun. Who knows…I actually like the Gladiator better than the Spiritmaster! Haha. I guess every character has its own strengths, but I think my personality suits the Gladiator more. LOL.
In any case, I’ll be playing these two characters fairly often. If you guys are also on the game, do say hi if you ever see me stumbling along! I’m still a noob at MMOs so please forgive my clumsiness. I’m Mayaserana as a Gladiator and Luthiea as a Spiritmaster. Oh, and my Ranger is Beldaran…if I get bored with my two main characters. XD
And yes, here is a piece of news from the National Arts Council for the writers and the reason for starting this post before I went out of point about Aion. =p
