Blaugust, day 22

Let’s get this party started, shall we? I’ll be monitoring the comments most of the day to day, and I’ll answer what I can.

Blaugust, day 6

Next up on the Bartle chart, Socialization! I often rank high on the Socializer motivation, so being social in my MMOs is important to me. I play both FFXIV and DDO with people I know offline, so the social dimension is a little bit interesting for me.
