[NEWS] An Interview With EM Ikaris

Discussion in 'UO Legends' started by a Rabid Chipmunk, Dec 31, 2010.

  1. Because Em Ikaris has been such a busy person lately, this interview was conducted via crystal ball, so there will be no accompanying pictures this time.

    DevilsOwn: Icarus flew too close to the sun and his wings of wax melted... oops! What's the hottest spot you've ever been in?

    Em Ikaris: My day job can get up to 110 in the summer, but a better answer would be the beaches of Cancun.

    DevilsOwn: When traveling the lands of Sosaria: do you travel alone or with a group?

    Em Ikaris: In a group 80% of the time..the other 20% I do my own thing. That is one of the great things about this game..you can have it anyway you like.

    DevilsOwn: What is your preferred method of battle when encountering belligerent beasts?

    Em Ikaris: I really like playing my Disco Mystic Gargoyle, but for straight resource gathering you can't beat an old a fashion Sampire.

    DevilsOwn: Legends has a smaller population than some, does that influence the storyline/encounters you plan?

    Em Ikaris: It does to a certain extent, but from what I have seen the Legends crowd can handle anything.

    DevilsOwn: If you could be granted one wish from the gods (developers) what would it be?

    Em Ikaris: Some way to do smaller group/party based events for folks and still have it be fair for everyone. That way you can do the event with your guild or who you like and not have to worry about griefers and such, but everyone still gets a chance to do the event.

    Me: Whats it like being the "new Em" on the block?

    Em Ikaris: Meh, its like your first day of High School and getting to hang out with all the jocks and cheerleaders....NOT! Ha! I received a very warm welcome and feel right at home off the bat.

    Me: What do you think of the Legends community, and is there anything you would change?

    Em Ikaris: So far it is very similar to other shards I have experienced, except I have not found that hardcore Role Player group I have seen other shards. Maybe I will soon.

    Me: What has been your favorite experience so far? Least favorite?

    Em Ikaris: Hmmm.. well I have not been around that long, but doing my first event was fun and I cannot recall a worst experience so far.

    Me: When your not planning or running events, what are you doing?

    Em Ikaris: Well I enjoy long walks on the bea...nah! I do photography as a hobby and have a nice sized family so they keep me running.

    Me: What hints can you leak to us about upcoming fun?
    Em Ikaris: Let's see...hints...*looks into his crystal ball*..I see black and white...many shades of gray...OH! and a gold chest!...and ummm...someone yelling "SNAP INTO A SLIM JIM!"..dunno if that helps.

    Em Ikaris: Thanks for the interview guys! Legends seems to be a real cool place and I look forward to lots more fun.
