Happy Thanksgiving!

A bit delayed, I know, but Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Today I celebrated by having a delicious and perfect dinner with my family and then clobbering Malistaire for the fifth time ;)

Hope everyone has a great, relaxing weekend. Safe journeys!

Success! - In the Danger zone!

Thanks to the cooperation of over 50,000 Wizard 101 fans, anyone who is a member of Wizard 101 Central and a fan of Wizard 101 on Facebook will receive a special pet: a Danger Hound!

And, they're going a step further and for each additional Facebook fan we will also receive free gold! *Jumps up and down excitedly* I will be that much closer to getting a house for my sorcerer!

Let's all continue to work together so we can all be rich! Muahahaha!

*Facedesk* - When good gaming goes bad

Ah, I remember now why I hated Marleybone so much the last 2 times I went through it.

I get sucked into battles every 5 seconds.

Zing - Marleybone calling!

Have a few updates for ya!

Krokotopia is now a thing of the past! Victoria Ravenblood is now level 27 and an official Marleybonian.

"By Jove, a NECROMANCER! There goes the neighborhood."

That's right, I got a Marleybone mansion :D How, you ask? I literally lived in my dorm until level 25 (sadly this very closely resembles real life). I also sold everything except the clothes on my back and some awesome furniture. Turned out to be worth, it, wouldn't you say?

Also I used my grandmaster character to splurge on some new threads!

 "Spot on, I've found the elusive species Wizardus Necromancus!"

I totally fit in perfecly now, wouldn't you say? I must admit I was a little worried that I would never make it to Marleybone. I was so stressed over trying to finish the Tomb of the Beguiler, and I was thinking "Why the heck did they make this so flipping hard for such a low level world?" And then I realized it's like the Sunken City of Krokotopia. Needless to say I did a mental facepalm.

(Not pictured: my mental facepalm)

I also have a new staff for when level 30 rolls around. *rubs hands together greedily*

Other than that, nothing new has happened. Unfortunately my IRL friend hasn't been able to play much due to restrictions (real life... such a chore!), but he said he'd try to play more, which is about as much as I can expect from someone who actually has a job. I think I will try to focus on the crafting quests before the others, that way it won't just be sitting there crowding up my quest page 9_9

Anyways, that's all for now. Safe journeys, everyone!

Peer Pressure - Haha! I win.

      I had been moping about quite a bit on my death character since I had pretty much no friends for that character and the game was getting a little lonely. Well, I have this friend in real life, and one thing let to another and... he plays Wizard 101 now! Why? Because I convinced him of how awesome it is :D

      I'd been having trouble lately with convincing IRL friends to join Wiz101, first with my (now ex-)boyfriend, then my other friend who is actually very much into gaming of any kind (although I think he didn't want to because the program wouldn't be compatible with linux), and my sister, who thinks MMOs of any kind are evil incarnate. It's not necessarily that I have anything against making friends in the game with people I don't know. It's just that I've been burned too many times by really inconsiderate people (if you need a refresher, CLICK HERE). It kind of sucks the pleasure in meeting new people.

So, at last I successfully lured one of my friends over to the dark side! MUAHAHAHAHA! Except he chose life school, so I suppose it's not really dark, per se. But still, wizardry is witchcraft, so.... *Insert more evil laughter*

I think I was going somewhere with this post, but I'm not sure anymore. Hmmm... Oh yeah! So, has anyone else managed to get their friends to play Wizard 101? And if so, how did you convince them to? Did they like it? My friend said it's "Like WoW, but cuter and easier." I wouldn't know because I never bothered playing WoW. I was way too busy becoming a Grandmaster Theurgist on the bestest game ever :)

Anyhoo, safe journeys, everyone!
