In a flash of brilliance I decided that my first blog entry needed to do something exciting or memorable. Unfortunately, that's where the flash ended. In general I'd like this blog to bounce between silly, serious, and totally off topic posts. So before I start on a more serious post, I thought I would answer the two most common questions I get via /tell.
Q: What is your favorite food? A: Hera. Demeter was a little too salty.
Q: Why do OMs hide on their ships? A: Petitions and complaints are dealt with in another window. When I'm on land I get a lot more tells that I end up accidentally ignoring because I'm not even looking at the window. I've even been known to fall asleep while standing on a random ship. I come back to the window to see that the ship I have just renamed is now pillaging and I'm in battle. To the sails!
Because so many people ask to come on my ship, I thought I would periodically show people some of the ships belonging to OMs. You can see a lot about our personality by our ships. For example, all of my ships are exactly the same. This is because my feeble mind can't possibly remember where things are if they aren't where they should be. I like to tell people that I chose a merchant brig because I was a harvest titan. However, the truth is that I could fit all the tables that I needed right next to the arrow. Here's a view from the top deck of my ship on Malachite. See, not very interesting. However other OMs have far more interesting ships.
Gaea for example, has no ship that looks the same, and the useful furniture is plunked around the deck in some random fashion I have yet to figure out. Some of her ships are painted, others not. Perhaps this is her way to remember which ocean she's on. I'll expect that she will soon write the name of the ocean out in hemp stacks. Here's a view of Gaea's ship on Cobalt.
I also went to her ship on Midnight and being the good guest that I am, I left her a little gift. Not to be outdone, she returned the favor and my Midnight ship now looks like a scene from the Jungle Book.
So what's the point of this post you ask? It's just a warning to not irritate Gaea unless you want to want to experience a whole new meaning of the phrase, "Go Green." Stay tuned for my next installment of my rambling, "Keeping Your Account Secure - i no getz haxx0rd ne mor".
