An interview with Tidus - 2002-12-01

Personal details:

Q: How did you get your name?
A: Well Tidus is from a game that I really enjoyed. This game had many main characters, Tidus being one of them. This game would be Final Fantasy X.

Q: How old are you?
A: In Real Life I am 20 years of age, and my AoD Char is 4 weeks old, though 4 weeks does not show the true effort I have put into my areas.

Q: What level are you?
A: I am level 200. I used to be level 250, but because of a mistake that I made I am 200 again. I guess you could say its like a mortal reincarnating =~~~

Q: How would you describe yourself?
A: I am an extremely Evil Immortal out to cause chaos and destruction in the Mortal realm.

Q: Where do you live?
A: I live in the Temple of Power, though you will never find me there it is my creation and my Home, in Real Life I life in a small town known as Petersburg in Canada Ontario.

Q: How long have you been logging on to AoD?
A: Well as I am a GOD I guess you could say since the dawning of time
A: However I have been around since beta

Mudding in general:

Q: How did you first get in contact with Ages of Despair?
A: I was searching for a mud to play or help out, and I ran into Ulme and he asked me if I'd help beta test AoD.

Q: Do you regularly play or wiz on any other MUDs?
A: I used to play on several muds, and wizzed on several, however between RL work and my AoD career, I don't have time for much else.

Q: Are you a normal mudder or do you seldom log on?
A: I login a lot. there have been times because of RL that I have been away for a time. However when I am around I am on As Much As Possible. The longest I have ever been away from AoD was 3 months.

Q: Have you met any fellow mudders in RL?
A: Unfortunately No. however there are those that I would gladly meet. and some I wish I had met before there passing. The Great Ordred pops to mind when I think of people I would have Liked to meet in RL.

Game specific:

Q: What was your first kill and if you ever died, what was the first thing that killed you?
A: Unfortunately I can not take credit for the killing or havoc in the Realm. But to kill me would be impossible as I am the God of destruction himself!

Q: Did you ever get killed by a ("the") horrible creature?
A: No, though the Creator of that creature had the starting of some greatness. Though it is sad they didn't continue to spread this evil.

Q: Who is your favourite and most hated npc respectively?
A: Ah My favourite NPC is Maendon. I haven't seen a Mob kill someone More and Daevil should be Proud on the Evil Monster he created. My least Favourite would be a Rabbit. the creator of this creature should be destroyed before goodness and fluffy bunnies overrun us all!

Q: What is the funniest/strangest thing that ever happened to you on AoD?
A: The strangest thing that ever happened to me would probably be losing 50 levels without reincing. Though I know why, it is strange to see 50 levels disappear

Q: Do you have any piece of equipment you just can't live without?
A: My Wand of destruction. This weapon is what I use to create and spead my Evilness.((which is soon to come to you mortals!!))

Q: Do you have a "special place" where you like to hang out, a private corner so to speak?
A: Actually Yes. The Zia'an outpost is a private place for me, as its evil will cause extreme chaos around the realm when it makes its final journey through the realm barriers.

Q: How much of your time on AOD do you spend hanging out or chatting compared with exping /coding?
A: I do not EXP. my goal is to take all that EXP away from the happy going mortals. and I WILL get my goal eventually.

Q: What is the best thing about Ages of Despair?
A: to be honest the best thing would be the group of create people. whether if be as a mortal to talk or party with or even chat, or as wiz to talk or help when someone gets stuck. Someone is always willing to help

Q: What is the worst thing about Ages of Despair?
A: the worst thing about AoD. thats Easy.
A: ME!

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: My goals are ongoing, and they are to cause as much death and disorder in the Mortal realm. Disorder and destruction is the Goal of his Ruler of destruction

Q: Is there any advice you would like to give to new players that just entered our world?
A: Yes, if you are looking for Order and harmony. you have come to the wrong place. With me in power as a god only thing here will be your demise and destruction!
A: honestly though if you need help show an effort and all players or wizards would be glad to help you figure out what you need help with. this is a great mud with alot of people willing to help. Put in the effort and they gladly will.

Other / Strange:

Q: Were you ever convicted of a crime?
A: In RL no. in AoD, though you will never find the a record of it, I have been. that crime is why I lost 50 levels. And to be honest it wasn't a real crime it was an accident that affected certain mortals. And only because it was an accident the 50 level removal was my punishment instead of removal.

Q: How many friends/family play?
A: None that I know of from RL. And I am too evil for any mortals to consider friends.((actually I have several mortal friends just don't spread it around =~~))

Q: Favourite quote?
A: Its amazing how many people won't or can't read on a text only game.

Q: What music are you listening to now?
A: Our Lady Peace. The Gravity CD

Q: Is there anything else you would like to mention about yourself or your life?
A:Yes actually
A: I am working hard on several areas hopefully soon to enter the Mortal realm.
I encourage all to search these areas, as it will bring my Mortal death count higher and higher.
Don't be afraid to die, you can always be reincarnated and die again.
Be warned though. Death is all you will find in any area created by me. specially you highbies

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: If I were to remove a question it would be the one about the music. but it too is a valid question. A question I would add would be for Immortals only. The question would be what Creature(NPC) would you consider your most deadly creation to date.

Q: And of course I will have to ask you to answer your own question now.
A: The answer for me would be General Thagnor of the first battalion Shadow army

Q: Who would you like me to interview next, and why?
A: General Thagnor.

Q: If I do that interview, is there a specific question that you want me to ask?
A: Because he is an interesting creation. ask him who his god is ((you'll get an interesting answer))

Q: One last question, Robert wants me to ask you; what are you working on and when will it be in the game?
A: The meddling Robert. a mortal who seems not to fear death. the kind I hate. Death is my power.
My areas will cause even him death. though some include....
Zi'an Outpost. it will be my first to come out.
The Ice Giants. ((its time giants struck back for the Avalon brothers))
Anceint ruins. a complex and HUGE area.
Temple of Power. a Complex maze like entrance with its followers worshipping and defending the true God of destruction ((Myself))
and Dallons. my largest of areas.
I have no idea when any will be in, but hopefully soon to cause you all death and chaos.

Q: Do I have your permission to make this information public on the People of AoD webiste or any other media?
A: yes, you also have permission to spell check/grammar check if you like.
