Back to School

Hi guys! tomorrow is the start of school for me! It was delayed today because of the hurricane, but I got to go to Manhattan to help my sister move into her college dorm. I cannot think of anything else to post so I am going to go do other stuff now.

Back to the Blogosphere

Heya friends! You are probably asking yourself where in the Spiral has Caroline Dawnrunner been! Well as a matter of fact Caroline Dawnrunner has not been in the Spiral at all! She is actually a manifestation of myself, who has been doing lots of last minute vacation things, such as a sleepover with a friend (whose dad got me hooked on Lord of the Rings -.-), a relaxing trip to the town of Hyannis in Cape Cod, and then an awesome day trip to the Oak Bluffs in Martha's Vineyard. I rode the carousel in the Oak Bluffs. It brings back memories of when I was 6. I can't believe the last time I rode a carousel was half my life ago! I have also been working on a story plot (which I will reveal later), and I started playing Dungeons & Dragons Online to top it all off!

I have a lvl 2 Paladin that is in Stormreach and yayyy the game is really fun!! :3

Also, during vacation I discovered an interesting card game while at Martha's Vineyard!

Warning!! this picture may contain explicit content! Stare at your own risk!!
Only problem is, the game gets old really fast :(

And uh, I discovered myself in a screenshot on the blog Maniac Magic:

It was on the 'Night Mode' page. and ah yes this was from Vanessa Emeraldglade's wiziversary.
Also:
Think you know your manga well? What are the similarities and the differences between these two manga characters?

An activity to do while you wait for the next post.

Also, on Monday I am going back to school! Or maybe Tuesday, because Hurricane Irene is headed my way!

Keep it cool!

A Blogging Break

Hey wizards! I am going to take a break from the blogosphere for about, oh, a week. (Sorry)During this break I am going to do the following things:

  • Spend more time with my family (I feel like I haven't been doing enough of that)
  • Restart on Everquest
  • Finish Ranma 1/2 and Chobits (Manga)
  • Catch up with other games
  • Try to finish up in CL asap
  • Start going for walks more often
Oh yeah, and not having a subscription to Runescape is driving me nuts for the record. Because look:

Without subscription, I was too depressed to play so I logged in the other day and OMG THEY CHANGED DRAYNOR VILLAGE!! I didn't know! Actually now it sort of looks like Granemor... or Canifis. *Falls back into depression*

Also, if you get lonely, please look at this comic.

New Stuff on the Test Realm!

Yes, there are new things on the Test Realm: houses! I think it's the Wizard's Watchtower and the Sunken Palace! This morning I took an awesome tour of the new houses. I think they're really cool! Unfortunately I went back on for screenshots, but:

Meh W101 on this computer has a BIG brain fart... must reinstall game file...Well overall I thought the houses were really cool (And I envy the wizards who will own them on the Live Realm), but I am content with my MB house.
    So, last night I saw Captain America: The First Avenger. It had lots of action-y stuff in it...

    And, um...

GAAASP! Somebody voted NO on the poll? What treachery is this? (LOL JK!!) Yeah I just felt like lookin on mah blog I do that occasionally to look on the blogroll and see anybody posted something on the blogosphere...

And um, I discovered Something terribly strange today:

Nyeh horses can't nod! Silly horse.

Nyeh I didn't have the run. Didn't think anybody would come anyway :P

Also, I'm gonna see a movie tonight :D

Not Again... (Pre-HoV Run)



HI wizards! How is your day going? I think some pplz are going back to school pretty soon... I will be going back in a couple weeks for my first day of middle school! And my older sister is going to college at NYU on the 30th! (:3 And, um, my other older sister is entering her senior year of high school!
Also, I was checking mah email today, and I found this update on Ether Saga Odyssey:

What?!?! NO!! First it's Ether Saga Online, THEN it's Ether Saga Odyssey, and NOW it's Ether Saga: Future's End!? I won't have it! Wait... wait a second, maybe... maybe it's just a new zone area in ESO... keep your fingers crossed girl...
    Also, you might remember I am having my Hall of Valor run today. I am going to repeat the run info just to make sure...

Date: August 12th (8/12/2011)
Spot: Outside of Nidavellir (Hopefully that's how it's spelled)
Realm: Wu (Area 1)
Time: 7:00pm Eastern, 6:00pm Central, 5:00pm Mountain, 4:00pm Pacific
Other: Between the space of 7:00 Eastern and 7:30 is the best time to start coming in and porting and all that. If you are entering in the HoV run, when you get to the Nidavellir doors shout, "Cheese!" In caps. If you are menu chat do the flex emote, then the wave emote. If at least three people show up no more run entries, and I don't think this is gonna happen because I'm expecting about one or two pplz. Cuz like I said before, it's not so popular a blog. At 7:30 (Eastern) we are actually going to do the run.
Make sure you're prepared with everything (i.e., went to the bathroom beforehand, deck equipped w| necessary spells, eaten dinner possibly), because Jotun is harder to beat than Malistaire for those who don't know, because he has two brothers, who each have 8k hp, while Jotun has 9k hp. They also have a buddy with 1k hp. Of course what am I saying, it's not so hard if you're a Legendary or something.


Who am I kidding; nobody's gonna show up anyways...

Also, I updated the bottom of the blog:

Yep, I added my deviantART gallery, Darth Vader Quote of the Day, and more! Enjoy!

Lots of Stuff Going On

Hey wizard fellas! Today I got the Panther mount! Sry there isn't a picture of me on it because:

Yes. The malicious server error strikes again.
So. As of today, I am a more active member of DoaWC! See mah profile page here! Also I started doing blog posts on there. And I joined a couple groups. So yep.

Also, I have been trying to finish up GH before I start up on CL again, but I can't find anyone to do Jotun w| me. So... I is having a HALL OF VALOR RUN!!!

I don't think anybody's gonna show up (Since this isn't such a popular blog of course), but just in case here is the time schedule and stuff:

Date: August 12th (8/12/2011)
Spot: Outside of Nidavellir (Hopefully that's how it's spelled)
Realm: Wu (Area 1)
Time: 7:00pm Eastern, 6:00pm Central, 5:00pm Mountain, 4:00pm Pacific

ESO Adventures

Well hi wizards! as you can see I remodeled a bit! Enjoy the new header!

(Aedan is finally out of his ninja costume. He looks like an actual Diviner now. That is a good thing.)

Also, I put a poll on the sidebar >>>>>>>>>>: should I start making Commisioned Artwork?
If the majority says yes, then on the 14th I'll post the commision conduct/rules.

Plus, I quit the comic (Finally! It was getting nowhere!). Instead I will do a fanfic.

Also, it is ETHER SAGA ODYSSEY TIME! Yes. Compared to Wizard101, ESO is the only one I'll ever love.

(Did this pic back in March)

So today I showed off mah awesome Ren swimming skills:


(This is what Ezelle looks like when her armor isn't glowing)
I really reccomend this game to anybody who likes manga. This is truly an awesome game by Perfect World. The Muromachi-supernatural theme is really stunning.



So. Wysteria has pigs in it. What is the significance of that, you might ask? Well, speaking of pigs, the Breeding Grounds Manager just so happens to be a pig.

Well Zeuster be darned, I now play TWO MMORPG's with pigs in them!

Oh. Make that three?
Well I'm glad there isn't a bacon school in W101. I suspect the Pigswick Academy students are immune to bacon...

Well they aren't immune to Myth :D (albeit Randolf Spellshine)!

And I ended the day obtaining the last page of the sūtra. Odyssey faintly reeks of Journey to the West... (:|

So I hope everything goes, uh, swimmingly!

FREAKING OUT HERE. (Deviation From Other Blogs)

Hi-hi everybody! I am in the process of remodelizing my blog a little bit, and I am going to stop doing the following stuff to make my blog a little different from the rest of you guys:

  • Deleting the website contributors page. Because one time I saw this blog Saviors of the Spiral who did that. and that's not fair to them. So I will update my profile page.
  • Stopping with the highlighted text. Okay, this one I am FREAKIN OUT ABOUT!!! BECAUSE I DID THE HIGHLIGHTED TEXT FOR SO LONG!!! AND I HAD NO IDEA IT WAS A DRAWING OF A DORK'S LIFE TRADEMARK!!! OHH THIS IS SO EMBARRASING! I CAME WITH THIS IDEA FROM ANNOTATIONS I SAW ON A YOUTUBE VIDEO THAT SOUNDED LIKE THEY WERE TALKING BACK AND FORTH!!! Hey wait a second...

The comic strip Jimmy Corrigan, the Smartest Kid on Earth also features an infant boy who has a football-shaped head with some hairs sticking out of it, talks in a very eloquent manner, fears his mother and constantly comes up with inventions to help him escape from her. The comic strip's creator, Chris Ware, started drawing Jimmy as early as in 1991. About the characters, he remarked, "[The similarities are] a little too coincidental to be simply, well, coincidental." He further stated, "I don't want a book of seven years' worth of my stuff to become available and then be accused of being a rip-off of Family Guy." 20th Century Fox insists that Stewie is an entirely original character. In a 2003 interview, Seth MacFarlane has stated that he had never seen the comic strip before, but the similarities are "pretty shocking".
(This is a direct quote from a Wikipedia page and no part of it belongs to me. All rights reserved.)
K I feel a little better now!

  • Stop posting lots of screenshots with captions. Another Drawing of a Dork's Life trademark I didn't know about...
Well actually I'm making a couple more changes, but I just wanted to post hw I'm deviating from other blogs. Cya!

Side Quest Shuffle...

"YOU KILLED TED YOU MEDEIVAL JINKWEEN!!"
         -Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure

Sup everybody! Mostly what I've been doing finishing up side quests. I am now 'Dragonspyre Master'! And 'Dragonrider'! And 'Loremaster'! And 'DS Explorer'! Now I am trying to beat GH. I also met a new Magus friend in doing so...

AARGH DEFEATED BY A MAGUS!!!

Your powers are weak, old man!



IMMA GURL!!


Also, I have decided to try Briskbreeze Tower again. Hopefully I've learned that persistence is power, and that I shouldn't give up on stuff like this. And after I finish everything up:

Wintertusk, here I come!

A Quick Post

Konnichiwa, blog reader-san! Kakenasai and read this quick post! I was going to show this really awesome picture I drew last night, but the scanner is only hooked up to the other computer. Here is a random screenshot I took last night:

And maybe I'll something else later today. Sayonara!

This'll be the third time in a row you've posted twice a day...

Dare desuka?

Do you even know what you're saying?


IIE!

Wysteria -- Easy and Fun!

Like the title said, Wysteria is easy and fun! I finished the whole thing in one day, side quests and all. I also saw hints of new worlds, such as Wierwood, Empyrea, and Mirage. I see some serious potential for the world itself too! Wysteria-themed houses, Pegasi mounts, pet Wood Goblins, and more! Personally I think there should be a limited-time event next year in 2012 where everybody competes for the cup at Ravenwood. Actually that gives me an idea! I was thinking about how in the Neopets Altador Cup you can choose to be on a team in a different country in Neopia, so wizards can choose teams on worlds like WC, KT, MB, MS, DS, GH, CL, WT, Wysteria (not sure what the abbreiviation for it is) and any other worlds! It'll be really fun!

Of course I won the tournament, imbeciles. What did you expect?

While I was fighting the Green Men on Tanglewood Way, I was thing about a Runescape quest called Fairy Tale Part I: Growing Pains. In the quest you had to fight a boss called a Tanglefoot with magical gardening tools to save the Queen Fairy.

...

Wierwood is really Zanaris! (:D

Well, overall, it was an awesome side world. I can't wait for it to be on the Live Realm!
-Caroline Dawnrunner☆☆☆☆☆

Caroline is on the Test Realm!

OK, this time I'm not going to barrage you with screenshots. This time I will barrage you with ADAMANTITE!!! BWAHAHAHAHA!!

Lol JK!

    So anyways I went on Wizard101 Test this morning. The first thing that popped into my head was: Free Crowns. Yes! 50k worth of them! I bought a Storm Mastery Amulet, an Arcane Staff, a Cerulean Edge, and a Dream Filly. Also I managed to get in a single screenshot before the servers went down. I have no idea where that screenshot is, but I'll find it somehow. I did notice that the unicorn in Wysteria is probably like Diego's brother? But they must have had a troubled past, because he called Diego a 'charlatan' and I'm not sure what that actually means but it must be contemptuous. Anyways, more on my Wysterian adventures soon!

More Party Screenshots!

So I went to Vanessa Emeraldglade's Wiziversary party. It was very fun! I made some friends who are bloggers, met wizards with all sorts of crazy pets, gear, and weapons, and examined all the cool furniture in the house with awe. Unfortunately, my Mom wanted me to get off the computer and do other stuff. She said that Atticus should be locked up in an asylum, and that he let me and Jem run around like stray dogs, and wait a second I think I stayed up too late last night reading To Kill a Mockingbird. Anyways, I showed up fashionably early for the party, and here's what happened:

 Apparently I hadn't started the quest 'Strange Frequencies'
 I showed up "Fashionably Early". Hopefully Vanessa didn't notice me...
 Meeting some other pplz
 Agreeing about something.
 Meeting more pplz
 New meaning the the very phrase!
 Vanessa looks like a walking/talking pumpkin!
 A floating piano..?
 Deathywiz takes charge!
 The party kind of felt like that movie Misery. We were confined to 3 tiny little rooms in a Masive Fantasy Palace. It's because the rest of the place was messy, but a new friend I made before the party named David Thundersword seemed to be bothered by it. I'm serious, the guy went crazy over it! For the rest of the party he kept doing the frowny face thing >:(<
 If you say that out loud really fast you sound like a chicken!
Perplexing...

Overall an awesome party. I had to leave early, so I'm not sure if the party's still going on or not, but thx a lot Vanessa! You earned a pic of yourself!

Crud! It's a SMALL picture! But still...

Random House Party Aftermath... And Other Stuff

Here are screenshots from the RAndom House Party I had. And let me tell you I took a lot!

 You might notice in the screenshots I am wearing diffrent shoes then usual. You see, I had a grand total of 125 Arena Tickets from Pvp, so I could afford the Weekend Warrior's Sandals. Yay me! -.-
 Aedan is doing that glitch thing where you can walk off of the 'hub'

 Aedan isn't acting very age appropriate.I'm not sure why I took this screenshot. But no matter. It's not like this is an official fansite or something.

 You going street on us, Aedan?
Aye, it be pirate lang I be speakin'!
"^.^




 Yes, I found some cool stuff at the Bazaar like Serpent Seat and Solar Emblem Bed. Rebecca and Cassandra pitched in to help. Too bad by the time I was done I couldn't afford the Shark Hut... I wish they would sell mannequins at the Bazaar because I can't craft anything!

 There was enough cash on my second character (Rebecca) to get this thing! Unfortunately in RPG's I'm a big spender so I don't have a lot of money :(




After Aedan left I invented a bunch of Apprentices over. This guy here Samuel wanted me to gift him. I was dead broke so I logged off while he was distracted...

OK, so I was looking at the Blog Updates for the Blog I was following today, and everybody was doing this new side world Wysteria without me! Wait, Wysteria sound familiar...

"They turned right down the narrow alleyway where Harry had first seen Sirius and which formed a shortcut between Magnolia Crescent and Wysteria Walk. It was empty and much darker than the streets it linked because there were no streetlamps. Their footsteps were muffled between garage walls on one side and a high fence on the other."
    -Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling

    Anyways, I went to go install the Test Realm, but I saw an ad for KI Freegames. I'd heard that they had made new prizes, so I wanted to check that out. So abandoning the download, I went to kifreegames.com . There I looked the Tier table again, but I then saw an advertisement for an RPG called Immortal Night. It's a browser game, but not a Flash browser game. It feels like a Choose Your Own Adventure book.


WORST RPG EVER!!! HTML games stink of mediocrity!

Lol it took me a while to draw, but I think Val looks like a preppy! But I find it better than last time.

Although Valerian in-game and in real life is only 12, I shouldn't have drawn him that tall...

    Oh yeah, and lastly I'm gonna try to catch Vanessa Emeraldglade's Wizziversary, unles I'm wrong and it's NOT 4:00 pm EST lol I should go check...

If you're a good wizard the blog fairy will put Crowns under your pillow
