I've spoken a little before about Wildstar, the only MMO I've ever enjoyed. Tonight is the end of the Wildstar beta. The game goes live for real on June 3rd, but all our characters, gold and dreams get wiped tonight ready for the big launch next month.
In honour of this, I figured I'd do a little presentation of my current characters. May they be forever remembered!
Snowbelle was my first ever Wildstar character. Moose and I got beta access on Christmas eve, so it seemed only fitting that I create a magical Aurin imbued with the spirit of Christmas! The name 'Snowbelle' was surprisingly not taken, and the candy cane ears, little star earrings and spunky elf-like hair made her perfect. I made her an Esper (seemed magical enough) and an Explorer.
Taffy's my main character, currently level 30 as of the beta's end. He's an engineer/settler. His name has a dumb history. The only place I ever really roleplayed, years ago, was The Lion King MUCK, an old text based roleplay that was ridiculously popular. Considering, yes, it was a roleplay designed for The Lion King universe, it was really intense and really fun and I spent far too much time there! My main character back then was an old grizzled white/grey hyena, and I named him Tafauti because it apparently means 'different' or 'defect' in Swahili, and Taffy was white (such a unique character!) It suited him well as the roleplay progressed, oddly enough, because he was lame in one leg and was finally accepted by a lion pride. Haha, I sound so cool typing all this out, right? but TLK Muck was kind of strict on that sort of thing (no dumb coloured animals, no friendships like Hyena/Lion without proper roleplay character development etc.) so the fact I achieved that was pretty cool! Anyway! Taffy is a Chua personification of that character. Grizzled, old veteran. Sadly Wildstar don't offer white Chua fur so this is as close as I could get.
I fell in love with Aurin designs and ended up making a bunch of them. I thought Sprightly was super pretty, but I never played her. Poor Sprightly.
Sundown is the prettiest Aurin! I think she was a stalker who again, like Sundown, I never played, but I think her design is the one I'm going to use for my Exile main when the game's released. I think she's absolutely gorgeous! I don't know if I'll play a stalker with her though. We'll see!
