Best days in gaming

There are days that stand out, as the best days you’ve ever had. What is true in this world is no different in the game world, and yesterday was one of those days.

Yesterday all our hard work at the tradeskill bench paid off, because Nostalgia owns a Tier 1 Guild Hall in Gorowyn. Of course, getting there took nearly an eight hour day of grinding writs to get from 2% into level 29 in the morning to Level 30 by early evening. Pages and pages of writs, but we did it and the pictures just don’t do it justice.

Of course the first thing to do was buy tradeskill stations to set up in one of the open areas. Here’s our (still very undecorated) tradeskill area, with Mini Kasul our rush order writ giver in the foreground. Thanks to Stargrace for nicknaming him after me, hehe. ๐Ÿ™‚

We all have lots of plans for what comes next, an aquarium, a library, a trophy and weapons display area, a stage for performing. Maybe even a little space for ourselves too, tucked out of the way and private. Decorating and moving in is going to take some time, but now that the hard part is finished it should be lots of fun to do.

It’s not just the feeling of accomplishment that makes this special, it’s the people I’ve been able to share it with. When I joined the guild in May I had no idea of where it would take me, of the friends that I’d meet and the way it would affect my life. I feel so lucky, to be here and to share this moment with them. This is why I play games, to feel this kind of connection.

And of course, something else happened this morning too… hehe. ๐Ÿ™‚
