Last Saturday, March 29, 2014, a few players got together to host an in-game event. Hosted by GoreJess and Paragona and held on the Merryweather server in the SOE-version of Wizardry Online. The event was titled "Operation Adventurer Hopeful." Many players gathered to win prizes and participate in the fun events such as trivia, marco polo, a prison raid, a brawl, and more. Our own GM Dartok even came to join in the fun and help spawn some rare mobs.
Why is this so noteworthy? This is exactly the type of thing that makes video games, and MMORPGs in particular, so fun! Players getting together and helping to impact their communities makes memories that really last. This is especially important as we approach the sunset of Wizardry Online. Some of my own favorite memories in games were due to player and GM events.
If you weren’t able to make it to the event, GoreJess was nice enough to put a video together on YouTube. You can watch it here:
And don’t forget something I touched on last month, you can help preserve your characters and memories using this wikia. For more info, go to my March 2014 Wizardry Online blog post. If you have any events of your own planned, don’t forget to let us know via the official Wizardry Online Facebook, Twitter, Google+, wikia, or forums.
Until next month, happy adventuring!
