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.
So, since the holiday festivities are going on in-game, and lots of Bug-squishing is happening, I hope to see an announcement Soon ™ about it, and be granted whatever powers and keys the Kings get, and really begin to flex my mystical meta-muscles towards Marind Bell. We already did a few things, such as ensuring the Shrine was cleaned up (no idle alts sitting there un-seen), and tested a few tools and techniques that might come in handy.
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….. 🙂
