I'm sorry to do this to you all, but I was just beaming here today to see my avatar in full color in Beckett's Massive Online Gamer Magazine. So, here's my real ugly mug pointing at my fake ugly mug.
Oh I bet you wish I'd flip that page over and photograph my redeem code, don't ya? Don't ya?! ;-)
It feels like it's been at least a month and a half since Tara from West Karana and I did this interview with Stephanie Morrow aka Stargrace. She's ultra-cool.
So, within the magazine, if you pick one up (and you really should pick one up--go check a local comic book/game shop or get a subscription), there is a redeem code for a super dooper cool looking staff. I noticed I've been getting a lot of hits on the term "redeem code," so here's your answer: It's inside the mag. Surf here to redeem it.
Once you're in game, you'll get a nifty button that looks like this:
I made sure that I had room in my backpack, and then I clicked the magical gift button. Bing bang boom. There it was! A swirling staff of awesomeness known as the "Amaranthine Staff." YES! Add that to my wand collection! WOOT!
So I decided to wander over to the storm school (it is a storm staff after all) and showcase it while assuming my smarmy look and brandishing Ben, my lightning hound.
OH! IT'S SO SMARMY!
The article itself is a good intro to the game. Tara and I (that's Mr. Thomas Lionblood, sir, to you) get quoted a couple times.
Seriously though, it was AMAZING to see my avatar modeling a few digs. I'm going to have to take this to work and show it off to the noobs who play World of Warcraft now . . . and I promise you there will be smarmy looks involved.
Thanks Beckett for a great article and involving me!
and as always . . .
