Syren - A crazy insomniac ratlover - 2004-10-25

Personal details:

Q: How did you get your name?

Q: How old are you?
A: 29

Q: What level are you?
A: 50...have been forever, prolly will be for quite a while yet.

Q: How would you describe yourself?
A: pure insanity in a pretty package.

Q: Where do you live?
A: hawaii, much time hanging on Waikiki beach laughing at tourists

Q: How long have you been logging on to AoD?
A: almost 2 yrs now...Nov 12, 02

Mudding in general:

Q: How did you first get in contact with Ages of Despair?
A: ummm, think I was bored 1 night n figured I'd try n find a mud since I hadn't played one in a few years. Google strikes again...

Q: Do you regularly play or wiz on any other MUDs?
A: nope, between AoD and Neopets... I've got enough addictions. :)

Q: Are you a normal mudder or do you seldom log on?
A: depends on what's going on at the time. If I can I like to log in at a least a little bit all the time, but just recently I ended up taking a short life break. It happens, in the meantime, I just stop by when I can.

Q: Have you met any fellow mudders in RL?
A: no, but found out that someone is from my hometown.

Game specific:

Q: Did you ever get killed by a ("the") horrible creature?
A: heh, nope :) but have managed to stumble upon enough other accidental things that missing that particular death is ok with me.

Q: Who is your favourite and most hated npc respectively?
A: Does anyone actually pay attention to them other than trying to figure out a quest? Seriously tho... I like Lilac, but any of the spammy ones tend to get on my nerves sometimes.

Q: What is the funniest/strangest thing that ever happened to you on AoD?
A: there was getting stuck in a well....had to get rescued...me exploring is a scary thing. strangest...had to be finding the bugged room last nite. Nothing like being trapped with company tho. :)
(I bet! -- Ed)

Q: Do you have any piece of equipment you just can't live without?
A: funny you should ask that..since I did the ultimate mistake of not storing before last reboot... (don't worry everyone, I'm covered) ..My ice crown...granted the spotted leather teddy is a close second.....
(Another naughty girl. You do know what kind of spots it has....I hope -- Ed) A: heh, yeah, that's what cleaners are for :)
A: seriously tho, add the riding crop...

Q: What do you prefer to do, Solo or Party?
A: well, both actually, I like parties so I can sit n chat, kill bigger stuff, and just have more fun, but being a necro sometimes parties don't work out, so I don't mind doing the solo hack n slash. (Syren waves buh-bye to the little furry things on avalon.)

Q: Do you have a "special place" where you like to hang out, a private corner so to speak?
A: other than in my house...not really, I just wander aimlessly to see what I find (see the comment about the well) or plan to go slaughter (or be slaughtered) in an area.

Q: How much of your time on AOD do you spend hanging out or chatting compared with exping?
A: prolly 70% chatting and 30% exping....unless I actually make some short term goal for the night.

Q: What is the best thing about Ages of Despair?
A: That people are usually friendly, and it's not one of those places with 400 users that don't know each other. Makes for some interesting bs conversatoins..

Q: What is the worst thing about Ages of Despair?
A: thieves...definately the thieves

Q: Do you have any driving ambitions on AOD? Is there anything that you want to achieve or perhaps something that you have already achieved?
A: I want to get all my necro spells maxed and maybe even advance to level 51...
A: beyond that, who knows
A: already out idled Lothar 1 reboot :)

Q: Is there any advice you would like to give to new players that have just entered our world?
A: to the newbies it's tough to be new, but people here are usually willing to help. Just PLEASE at least look at your handbook before asking a bunch of questions, because most of them are proll in there.

A: prolly even :
A: nope, I'm clean..just ask arwyn
A: as faye goes n invents something j/k

Q: Have you ever engaged in so-called mudsex?
A: no, but I have been known to do an occasional bellydance in gossip...

A: an obscure band called CruxShadows (that's crooox.....) with the things above the u
(Good taste! -- Ed)

Q: If you could remove one of the questions from this interview and replace it with another one, which would you remove and what would you replace it with?
A: how old I am, but I'm not sure what I'd replace it with
