All the rants and musings about my current favorite web “game” on magicduel.com

MagicDuel monarchy Muse

As readers of this blog know, I am involved in a rather unique game called “MagicDuel” and have been for a number of years Off/On but always enjoyed thinking about even when not playing.
(mostly off recently due to LifeChanges mentioned elsewhere here)

Lately, some recent events happened in-game that coincided with Elections for the “homeland” I was a member of, for King/Queen.    This is kinda a big Deal, and was almost above my honest Aspirations for my role there. I’ve been quite content to do my own thing, in my own way, and make Quests, and be silly, and alternately Philosophical and Paradoxical.   One of the alliance leaders stated it best on our forums:  “As for Maebius, he’s just crazy”.

But, I considered the position, wrote up a slightly strategically-written Poster explaining my intents, ideas, and willingness to run for the Crown.

Then I won.

We also are planning a party!   Go me!  😛

 

Bigger plans are underway too, but not until the realm calms down a bit from the holiday schedules, and we organize better.   Those plans won’t (obviously) be posted here, or anywhere outside in-game PMs or forums or chat.  I’m pretty set in my preference to keep as much Game-stuff in Game-stuff, which I strive for with my old Council roles too.

I’m intrigued and excited at what the Demon of the East told me as well, about the nature of Monarchy.     This should be fun…..    🙂

A MagicDuel sorta Poem

Write a poem about how you were a good magicduelist the whole year in four lines, you say?

 

Maebius_AvatarThe year sat idle, at it’s start, as I attended matters of the heart. So in the MD realm I strayed, in “Story mode” I am afraid.

However in the years more past, I was more active than this last. Yet do not think this counts for you, since echoes task, more recent, true.

So I must shorten up this verse, to only infrequently rehearse, my MD actions at years end, but welcomed now by you, my friend.

I’ve quested, and made quests for groups, and watched tehm jump through clickie hoops. Now reaching for the crowns we vote, and that’s four line, and all I’ve wrote.

Another perspective

I recently talked about Perspectives in terms of seeing wildlife in your backyard as a boon, and a symptom of imbalance.  I had been pondering that lately, and realized that the two options were not mutually exclusive, and to look at them in terms of extremes was jsut as bad as ignoring one side of the question itself.

For today’s musing, I present to you this:

What is it?

A few options present themselves to my mind.   For example, it’s an apple, Obviously.  Thinking further…

  • A fruit.
  • a red -skinned food-item
  • a healthy snack
  • a worm house
  • the fall of mankind via Eve
  • a potential tree
  • a jpg file
  • an electronic pixilated representation of a physical object
  • …etc.

I could probably think of a few other increasingly esoteric and creative answers to “What is that?“, but I think the point has been made. The question of “which is the correct answer?” is somewhat moot.  They are all correct.

The same ‘thing’ like that apple pictured above, can be many many things depending on how you look at it.   It’s a less extreme example of the three blind men and the elephant.

Like our own concepts of Spiritual Truth, I believe that just about all of them are valid, for the honest practitioner.  Some may call a spade a spade, and others a shovel or a playing-card, but there is Truth behind the respective words, that has validity.

Think about that the next time you dismiss someone as “wrong” in some subjective topic.  They may be less Right to you’re perspective, granted.  We can also change our own minds in light of continued evidence.  Yet, I am finding that the idea of wholly Wrong-ness is the cause of most troubles in society lately.

Lets stop comparing those apples to themselves, and just make fruit salad with the oranges we find too.
