Hera's Blog

The Peacock quoths some more!

Some of you may have noticed that my blog has recently been renamed to ‘Quoth the Peacock’. I had been scratching my head trying to think of something interesting to call it and had come up empty. Luckily, Gaea came to my rescue but in a rather indirect way. During the recent server downtime rather than just constantly refresh her screens (like I did) she multi-tasked and she and Glaucus came up with an idea for a forum event. Gaea wrote an example of poetry parody for this event which featured the line ‘Quoth the Peacock’ and I stole it off her! (Acutally, I did ask permission first because Gaea can be scary when she is cross!).

I’m a big fan of forum events which give players who may not be the best puzzlers the opportunity to shine by demonstrating their other skills. We have some very talented pirates sailing our seas and I’m constantly amazed at the effort that goes into their work. Recently I was completely in awe of the entries in the Zomgrats! Contest in which players were able to pay homage to the wonderful pet rat in whatever fashion they wished. I will be forever grateful that I didn’t have the extremely tough job of judging the entries but very much enjoyed looking through them all and sharing them with non-pirate friends and family.

While we celebrate the winners, we shouldn’t forget those pirates who come up with the ideas for events and the efforts they put in to making those events a reality. Anyone who aspires to running an event should take a look at the Events Workshop forum. There are all sorts of tips about planning and running an event available there and knowledgeable mates who are happy to help.

Hera Ship

To wind up this month’s blog I’ve got a screenshot of my vessel on Viridian. Last time I posted I requested suggestions on how to decorate some of my vessels. A mate suggested that I decorate a vessel with items that you can't usually purchase, so I decided to create an festive Christmas look, complete with an ice maze. I had so much fun, I went on to 'decorate' a vessel owned by Cronus, but in a much more haphazard way. He was delighted with the results (I swear I heard his whoop of joy down here in New Zealand!) and I'm sure he will post a nice screen shot of it in his next blog. With Halloween fast approaching, I think the next ship I tackle will have more of a spooky feel to it. I may even have some bits left over to brighten Cronus' day again, but more on that next time!

HERA! I totally love you. XD I ought to email you some more!

I'm loving your ship. It's all..... Christmas like! XD I betcha don't get much snow in NZ!

Btw, are those the new clothes that are the replacements of the ones Cronus slobbered on? :P I prefered the old ones tbh.

Mucho Love,

Bennyboi and the rest of TOMS

Ah, Hera. Your ship is beautiful! I see a lot of creative decorating there. I look forward to seeing your Halloween themed ship. If it's anything like the Christmas one, it will be fantastic!

Y'know, I think it would be very fun to participate in an event where entrants must decorate a ship for Hera. *wink, wink*

What a splendid idea, Sharktail! I've been needing an event to give away a Hera doll and that sounds like just the thing! *ponders and plans*

I made something very, very immature on a sloop. I think Cronus would like it, but if Hera is judging, hmm, well.....

Oh, and I wont enter anyway since I didnt win the last flipping compo! Spent all that time too and for what? NOTHIGN! xD

Oh, and Hera, moving off ships and onto clothing. I think you should bring out the Bennybra next time you think about making new clothes! You can even make a compo about it, and the winner gets a free Bennybra XD Just a thought.

Benneh and not so many of TOMS, nubs <.<
