(That’s totally my Froglok Conjuror’s catch phrase.)

I can’t believe it’s been a whole month since I’ve posted anything. It’s not like I’ve been slacking, either…I’ve put in enough hours on a recent corporate project to warrant browsing for a laptop of my very own. Yvria, my Weaponsmith in EQ2, hit level 80 last week. Kharri, my Carpenter, finished her crafter epic yesterday. I’m steadily leveling up my combat jobs in Free Realms, one at a time. My Animal Crossing: City Folk town is still chugging along, and I log in daily to keep all my flowers watered and stuff.

With the weather changing from summer to fall, I’ve had a fibro flare-up or two that’s slowed me down for a few days. Right now I’m suspicious of some intense coughing fits I’ve been having recently. If I feel myself passing away, I’ll let everyone know well in advance. No, you can’t have my stuff. :p

I’ve decided to move my guild’s website from Dragonfly CMS to WordPress, since I’ve been really getting into making new themes lately. I’m even seriously considering making a WordPress port of Roster Master as a plugin, but we’ll see how that goes when I have more time to concentrate on it.

I’m designing an AION website for an ex-EQ2 sig artist friend. It’s going to be way cool and will be launching before the game is released later this month. The AetherNet — keep an eye on it!


Twilight Alliance

Well, at least it’s born in Free Realms…I have no idea where it was born elsewhere. :p

Yesterday, Free Realms introduced guilds (official notice here), and of course I had to login immediately to try to get a good name. Creating a guild is incredibly easy; anyone can do it. No, seriously…ANYONE. All by themselves. No fellow players needed. I’m sure there are going to be loads of “guilds of one” out there, but hey, it’s a kids’ game, so everything’s pretty simple.

Once you create your guild, you’re given a temporary guild name consisting of the founding character’s name. In my case, it was “Seagoat Skyrune’s Guild.” Original, right? 😉 Then comes the task of picking a good guild name that won’t get auto-rejected OR manually rejected by the guild name reviewers.

First I tried “Elemental.” Auto-rejected. Not sure why, but hey.

Next up was “Jumjum Bandits.” That one got manually rejected…I think it was the “bandits” part, but who really knows for sure?

Finally I tried “Twilight Alliance,” and that one stuck. Yay! Third time really is the charm, I guess.

Coming soon: Guild halls!!
