PirateX tells you, "Galene, when you gonna put up a blog? All the other new OMs have one :("
You told PirateX, "I've never done a blog before. I'll see what I'd have to do to get that set up, mate!"
PirateX tells you, "Galene, when you gonna put up a blog? You said you'd set it up :("
You told PirateX, "Oh right! I'd completely forgotten with all these Halloween Events! I'll see what I can do after Halloween!"
PirateX tells you, "Galene, when you gonna put up a blog? It's after Halloween :("
You told PirateX, "I'm sorry mate, I still have not had time. Been rather busy lately with passing out charts and testing Cursed Isles on Ice. I'll try to get it up after Cursed Isles is released to production oceans."
PirateX tells you, "Galene, when you gonna put up a blog? CI has been released :("
OK OK OK! I can't take any more frowns! Doesn't look like I'm going to ever allow myself a chance to catch my breath, so it's time to just dive in and do it. Nao u smilz 4 me, kk?
What the heck does "Tiny Purple Fishes" mean, anyway?
That's for me to know, and you to start guessing! The only hint I'll give you is that there is more than one correct answer. Use the comments for this blog to submit your guesses (be sure to include your pirate name and preferred ocean), and you just might win a Galene egg if you're close! Keep it clean, one guess per pirate, deadline November 30th, 2008 at 11:59 PM server time.
What can we expect to see in Galene's blog?
Who knows! Spontaneous casual contests like the one above, funny anecdotes from both in game and IRL (or things I think are funny, anyway), discussion on being an OM and what it's like to have a sup3r s3krit identity or anything else that tickles my fancy might find it's way in here. I'll definitely be sharing some of my hopes and thoughts on the Puzzle Pirates game experience. What you won't see is any debates on policy or in depth discussion on game mechanics not already released to the public. Don't even ask :P
Galene was a Nereid, Daughter to Nereus and Doris. If you're searching for her online, you might also find her listed as Galateia (various spellings). Galene represents calm seas, and I do fancy myself as bit of a problem solver and peacemaker in my life outside of Puzzle Pirates, two traits I hope will serve me well here. As you might have guessed, I also am extremely fond of the sea and all it's inhabitants. I'll be pushing hard for a YPP cruise, even if it's just aboard my little Tea Ell Sea.
With that, I'd like to start off by sharing a bit of artwork. You've no doubt already figured out that my header contains a delicious bit of art given to me by the talented Tilinka. I'm especially delighted by any artwork which seems to show an understanding of who my character is, which she's illustrated brilliantly here. She wasn't the first artist to offer such rendering, however! Less than 24 hours after the pirate "Galene" was created and out visiting with the players, I received a PM on the forums from Lulguy. I'm in awe of it's beautiful simplicity! I thank you both for your time and your warm welcoming of me to the Puzzle Pirates Family.
