gumdrop.jpg

Can we just talk about this guy for a second?

Gumdrops…Flawless…Cuteness. What a pleasant little face. It reminds me of a Ditto but more cute.

Had I not already had  ton of pets to level, I’d go snag one of these.

I imagine that they’re peach flavoured. Maybe cantaloupe.

Gumdrops are level 21 mobs and are located in West Sun Land if you’d like to see them for yourself!

I love this game. I love it. I love the people in it. There’s many reasons but one that stands above the rest is how open and welcoming they are. How accepting they are as a group. How they go out of their way to include people.

I have a hard time making friends or talking to people for a couple of reasons. One is that I don’t shut my yap, I talk almost constantly and I have a really hard time controlling that.  Another is that I’m scatter brained and I often think faster than I can express my thoughts in anyway that makes sense. Because of that I tend to speak in a short-hand kind of way of speaking just hoping that I can keep up with myself…Usually I can’t any no one else can either.

You might wonder why. A lot of people do or they figure I’m just strange or flighty. Perhaps those are all correct things to think. Fact of the matter is I have something called Schizoeffective  Disorder.

It’s not as severe as a lot of people out there who have it. I’ve gotten to a place where I can control myself very well. I recognize my triggers and avoid them and I have people I can trust to set me straight when I need it like my husband, Matt. All that being said and with all of my improvements, I still find it hard to communicate and keep on track and feeling safe with other people is virtually impossible.

That’s not quite the case here. There are a handful of individuals that without knowing any of my issues have seemed to adapt to the way I think and speak and try to include me. I can not thank them enough.

When you live in a world where you always expect everyone is out to get you, that you’re nearly incapable of feeling safe, having a few friendly faces can be the difference between life and death on some pretty tough days and nights.

Ana, HP, Nayta, and Rosa. Thank you from the very bottom of my heart for giving me the refuge you have.

There’s a place in HKO that I’ve grown to absolutely love. It’s East Stars Plain.

I love hydrangea. If you’re a fan of Japanese culture you might have read about it somewhere or seen it on a yukata and recognize it as Ajisai ( あじさい).

I’ve always been a fan since I was a young girl because of the big beautiful clumps of flowers ranging from periwinkle blue to magenta that we had growing in front of various houses.

The flowers themselves always reminded me of those enormous fireworks you can only see at big celebrations. To me they represent happiness, warmth, and renewal.

In the East Stars Plain, the trees remind me of giant clumps of hydrangea. I think it might have even been deliberate considering the significance of the flower and the shades of blue, pink, and purple they used for the trees. They are incredibly beautiful to me regardless of the intention behind them.

When you also take into consideration the sparkling lake, the soft mint green beryl rocks, the red-pink cherry crystals, the soft yellow citrine and of course  the wonderful honeydrop trees that look like Hershey Kisses with flowers sprouting out of the top. This is a wonderful and full zone.

The trees towards the north that look like little hot-crossed buns are pretty cute as well.

I think this is my favourite place in all of HKO. I think my Chainworm agrees.

EastStarsPlain-Hyndrangea

Do you have a favourite place in HKO? Where do you like to sit to enjoy the scenery?

So.. We don’t have any events going on. I doubt we will any time soon if ever again.

I don’t think that putting the time and effort into it that would be needed, is worth the cost for Sanrio right now. The game is too empty and I’m not sure how much they’re really making off the item mall at current. Probably not enough to justify planning events for the few of us left or that have come back.

(Then again maybe planning some events or adding to the item mall would encourage players to come back =/ )

So, maybe we should take it into our own hands? Plan some events to do together? We can get things from the item malls and give them out as prizes.

Scavenger hunts or maybe quizzes?

I’m happy to provide some prizes and I’ve organized these kinds of events before for large groups online. I have to buy a few things from the item mall for friends and myself anyway. Might as well give it a shot.

Maybe a Halloween/fall event would be good.

Anyway, I’m mulling it around.

In the meantime… The moles… I’m going to find them all and turn them into hats. Starting with this guy:

StarMole

By that question I mean, what other multiplayer games do you play? What other websites or blogs do you belong to that you consider part of your network?

Right now the only other game I have open to playing with people is ACNL or “Animal Crossing: New Leaf” for people who hate abbreviations. =P

As for websites or blogs. I have a tumblr but it’s not appropriate to link here.

I do, however, have a Deviantart. The majority of my DA is pixel art and resources for people to use. Not much actual..Umm..Art..I guess.  For now anyway.

One thing I have quite a bit of fun doing is making QRCodes in Animal Crossing. I take requests. I don’t charge, I just have fun creating things for people.  To be honest I have a blast doing it.

Unfortunately this week I haven’t even been on HKO too much due to not feeling well. At least it’s giving me time to work on some other games like Dragon’s Crown.

Ahem.. This is a bit of a rambling mess now isn’t it?

Anyway. If you’d like and you have a DA account, tell me your name and I’ll happily add you. That goes for ACNL also.

Beneath is my ACNL info and if you click it it should take you to my AnimalCrossing folder in case you wanted any extra QR Codes for your collection or to place a request!

VisitationInformation

Well… Other than what I’ve already said that’s mostly irrelevant, I have nothing else to say or relevance for now. I just hope you’re doing well and having fun!

If you’re new to HKO or you’ve been playing a while but started a new character. You’re going to run into some quests that require a level 4 farm.

In order get a level 4 farm you need a fair amount of loyalty points and you need to get your farming up to level 4.

Ah, but there’s another way.

If you’re working on getting a level 4 farm but you just haven’t been able to yet, or if you just don’t want to bother with it, I will happily bring you the farmed materials you need at no cost so you can continue questing.

I greatly enjoy farming and helping and this lets me do both.

I’m also working on getting my farm up to a level 8 which I will eventually.

If you need help with farming, crafting, anything really; my information is as follows:

Name: PancakeWarrior
Server: US/Canada

You are always welcome in my farm.

I will be making another character on the other server eventually as well.

Until I see you and even if I don’t, good luck and have fun!

I had only played a small bit in Open beta because I was dragged off elsewhere (WoW).

I went through the closed betas and loved it. I missed HKO when I had left for another game. The people in that game ended up soiling the love I had for it.

People can’t just let a game be a game. They always need drama to entertain themselves.

Long story short. Here I am again HKO. I’m happy to be back and to have met the people I’ve met in such a short time.

I love what has happened to the game. I think it’s great. There are a few bugs but that’s par for the course with any game.

I’m looking forward to wasting countless hours on here like I have other places.

Crysandrea, TinierMe, WoW, They’ve all left a bad taste in my mouth.

But HKO…HKO tastes like cherries, happiness, and cotton candy.

If you were in the guild HKOFounders, or if you weren’t it doesn’t matter, we are all HKO founders. We should all be proud of the money we raised, of the friendships we forged, and of the cooperation we had with the GM’s to make this a truely remarkable game.

There’s a way to go for sure to make this outstanding, but I think even right now it’s a cute little piece of Heaven for any Sanrio fan and in only two BETAs it’s grown quite a bit.

We all did a fantasic job! There were some roughspots, some rumor spreading, some HILARIOUS drama, but thats all part of an MMO-rpg or otherwise, so we might aswell shrug it off and carry on because non of that is important anymore and it shouldn’t be even when it hits. Overall though, you know what? Everyone got along pretty darn well so pat yourselves on the back!!

Now, what I’d like to do in this post, is point out some of the great moments in the HKO Founders BETA, and some of the things that made it really special.

Lets get to it!

The GM’s :

The GM’s in HKO are all pretty great. They have their ups and downs like any human being. In HKO though, we are quite lucky. We have GM’s who are always willing to talk and treat you like a human, who are willing to not look down on or at you but keep it all eye to eye.

I remember getting stuck once, and the GM rather then just getting my PM and fixing it without a word, actually sat there and talked and joked with me despite being bombarded with a bunch of other PM’s until it was fixed.

I also remember just sending PM’s to say hi or that things were going great and they always responded openly, kindly, and even seemed happy to hear it, rather then brushing me off or acting as though it meant nothing.

There were quite a few that stood out to me specificly, who always made me feel warm and fuzzy. So here are the honorable mentions for the GM crew.

GM-Abby- So light, warmhearted, caring, patient, funny, open, sweet, energetic, and trustworthy.

GM-Mickey- Mickey is very honest, kind, shy but not afraid to answer questions and joke around a bit, Mickey will never treat you as anything other then an equal.

GM-Wayne- Patient as patient can be and oh boy did that come in handy sometimes. Reliable, quick, honest, straight forward but always mainting kindness.

These were the three that REALLY made a difference in the game to me not in any order because they’re all great for their own reasons.

The Zones/cities/areas. :

Of all of the places to go and things to do, London was easily my favorite. Paris might have been but it was so lonely! For farming or wandering or just bonking things on the head, The WindyPathway was my favorite. I just hope that someday we’ll get a snowy zone!!

Fashion and Equipment :

Oh umm.. There were alot of nice rare drops to get and clothes to purchase and wear. I can’t say I had a favorite cause I loved running around in my underwear. The Medical mask was pretty neat though!

Cutest or Favorite monsters:

Crabs OMG crabs.. I loved the crabs, in CB and FB, they still are and will always be my favorites. Pets wise the sheep was my favorite but I never got one ;_;.

Guilds/Communities:

Haha ok.. I know this is a sensitive subject. There was alot of drama that happened with some guilds and I wont say names it’s none of my business and I’m not getting into it but I do need to point out one thing. Please remember this in upcomming years of HKO;

One or even ten peoples actions do not account for all people or persons within a guild. If you have a problem with a few people from a guild that DOES NOT mean the rest of the guild are like them so please do not generalize.

If you remember this you’ll make alot more friends and have alot more fun and save yourself from alot of stress and drama. That being said there were two guilds that every member I had come across were incredibly kind, and were just there to have fun. Those were the TwinStars, and the CharmmyKitty’s.

The rest of this post will be and is dedicated to the loving family that was my guild. I was absolutely honored to be apart of it, they made such a difference in my life when I was happy and when things were a bit rough. Here’s to you guys!!

HKOFounders Guild:

These are just some of my favorite moments, quotes and things that I wanted to share with you all.

Favorite quote(s)::

There are sooooo many.. omg. You guys kept me laughing the entire time, I swear I nearly choked todeath a good number of times.

So lets get to it.

JamJam and the triangles.

I almost died laughing when I read this. I dodn’t even know what was going on or why it was said but taken out of context it was hilarious.

I agree..

Not only do I agree, but this was in my opinion the funniest quote out of the entire game for me.

OATS

This was another one that had me rolling on the floor. It still does when I read it. Oh man.. I don’t even want to know how many oats everyone farmed XD

Please only read the next one if you’re in or out of highschool =P. I’ve said some terrible things in game but sometimes I couldn’t help it, like in this convorsation. It’s just me indirectly hitting on Kenman again. Oh I should probably explain where this came from, we were building a house and I swear to you he DOESN’T run out of stamina, he has like endless snacks or something but he was also lvl 30 at the time with good gear lol.

Robots have endless stamina.

On we go–

WE LOVE YOU TOO

We love you too Ayumin, you were fun to hang out with and talk to and were an important part of the family! All of HKOF were very loving and open and we got along great, I’m glad to have met all of you.

Screenies and moments!::

What's she doing!?

Whats Bellkana doing down in the corner lol?10 minutes prior to the very end of FB .

The winning anouncment

The anouncment for the Food for Friends run. Yes we were happy that we won, but we worked hard for a good cause, and I’m glad everyone in HKO worked hard for that cause, and it’s just great to know that the Sanrio fans made a difference. Congratulations to everyone who participated, you made a difference and helped alot of people, pat yourselves on the back!

EDIT::I’m a total idiot, I forgot to give Serenity credit for this one! Thats her cute lil avatar right there in the center, she was kind enough to take this screen cap when it happened. I’m especially happy and greatful because I did not get to be there for this moment. Also–HAPPY BIRTHDAY SERENITY!! ♥ ♥  ♥  ♥ (it was yesterday as the clock has rolled over but still ;) )

Freedom! <3

Getting together before the end of the game, hanging out, having fun, making memories. I’m sitting with FD aka FreedomDeep, a VERY awesome person, I hope FD will be around for OB cause thats a person you just want to have around.

The twiinnss

Serenity and JamJam. These two were absolute pillars in our guild. Hearts of gold, they were funny, kind, always willing to help, they worked their BUTTS off to do anything they possibly could for HKOFounders and even people they didn’t know and had never spoken to. They had helped me MANY times. If I sat here for a year and tried to think of one bad thing to say about them I simply couldn’t. It’s not possible. By the way don’t they have awesome fashion sense?

The countdown begins and what am I doing? Loving stalking Kenman, shhhh I don’t think he was there when I was doing that.

Piling up for a very last second photo!! If you look close there are even CharmmyKitties that came to the party! Thanks comming and hanging out guys it was awesome!! Oh and there I am in the front, in my undies and blue pigtails..GM-Mickey is in there sooomewhere lol

We were all together, as a family till the very last second together.

Kaito- You were an OUTSTANDING leader. You motivated us and kept us going, and you brought us to the top and we never came down from it.

Kenman- You were the crazy, funny, robot that we desperately needed. You never stopped going and anytime we had a question you were there to answer it.

Serenity- You were almost like a mom to us (don’t kill me for saying that!) . You gave alot of guidance and help throughout the game and you worked damned hard for everyone.

JamJam- OMG you kept me laughing the entire time, you always made me feel warm and fuzzy, and I knew you were always someone we could count on.

Group photo on the last day. I think it was Justita that took the screen cap so thanks for the cap Justita! Thanks for all the memories guys! Hope to see you in OB!

For right now I’ll give you a tiny guide, Im hoping to do this later with graphics, but for right now this is all I can manage.

I know alot of you are losing your strawberry seeds and this is very disheartening, well.. WAIT A SECOND AND DON’T PLANT A THING!! Let me give you some basics. ^__^

Seeds unless stated otherwise come in sets of 10. Strawberry seeds you can never get again so be careful with them.

Plants will die eventually. It’s ok!
First off…One VERY important thing you need to know is that your farm can be PAUSED. That way when you leave the game or you’re away or busy on a quest, you don’t lose harvesting opportunities. However when your farm is on “pause” you will not be able to harvest because nothing will grow ofcourse! So please when you are ready to start harvesting remember to turn the pause button off.

Ok Step one..How to pause! ::

Where the map usually is when you’re running around, you’ll see that there is an icon you can click to drop down a menu. On that menu there is a little set of gears, those are your farm settings! Once you find that gear, click it and a window will pop up with a few options. On the right side of that menu there will be a box to check or uncheck that says “Pause”.

When you’re ready to farm!:: Uncheck that box and wait around for your plants to grow!

When you leave your farm:: , infact EVERY TIME you leave your farm, go back into the menu and check that box to pause the farm. If you don’t you’ll miss the harvesting cycles of your plants and they’ll die before you get anything from them!

———————————Ok now that pausing is out of the way—–

Fertalizing/Fertalizer::

Every seed you get will require a certain amount of fertilization. When you hover your cursor (mouse) over the seeds it will tell you how much it requires to grow, and how much it will take out of the fertalization.

For instance if you have a seed that REQUIRES 10 fertalization, and DECREASES fertalization by 2, you will need a spot that has no less then 10 fertilization. In order to INCREASE the over all amount of fertility in a piece of land, fertalize that exact spot a few times until the desired number is reached. In order to see the amount of fertility in that little square of land, hover your mouse over it and look up near the farm menu and it will tell you the exact number for that little spot. Give it a try when you’re ready to plant but not yet!

(NOTE!: After a plant has been harvested for it’s last time and withers away, the fertalized land will decrease the amount previously stated by that plant. So if strawberries decrease fertility by 2, then a piece of land that started out at 10 for fertility will fall to only 8 after the strawberries die.)

Fertalizer comes in several forms, you can mine it out of Fossil rock, or you can buy it in London. You’ll be given 50 free fertalizer to start farming when you get the proper quest. Be stingy if you don’t want to end up buying it again, or be ready to mine your heart out on Fossil rock because you cannot grow without proper fertalizer.

How do you fertalize? Well I’ll explain..Open up your back pack (inventory) inside you’ll see these little tiny adorible poops! Right click that once with your mouse, then move the mouse over your farm in the desired area. Fertalizer will only fertalize a 3 by 3 plot of land, the spot you choose to fertalize will be the CENTER of that 3 by 3 land. I’ll give an example below.

Where the blue box is, is where I clicked to fertalize, the green boxes are the surrounding fertalized spots that create the 3 by 3 fertalized zone any time you fertalize, and the red will represent the rest of the farming ground. Also please only look at image number one right now.

(HINT: It’s easier to plant and fertalize with the grid on, you get the grid by clicking the drop down menu and then the magnifying glass. Click it again anytime you want the grid to go away.)

Farming Graphic

NOTE: How you fertalize is your decision ofcourse! All of it is, but I highly reccomend you continue reading just to see different options on how to fertalize and plant!

——————————————-

Planting!:: Planting can be a bit tricky..For planting you will need specific fertalization methods. For instance if you’re planting trees you won’t be planting them the same way you would plant a shorter crop like strawberries. So I’ll explain “Tall crops” and “Short crops” seperately.

Lets start with the “Tall crops”. Scroll back up and take a look at image number 2. The Blue represents where the trees were planted, the green represents LEFTOVER fertalized spots. As I explained fertalizer will make a 3 by 3 patch in other words, a square of nine plots.

It’s probably best you plant your trees in a single row. The reason for this, is that if you have them in a clump, three rows of three, you wont be able to easily target and harvest them and may lose crops. Because of this it’s easier to waste just a tiny bit of fertalizer and plant them in a nice long row next to each other. Seeds come in sets of 10, so you’ll have one left over that you can plant at either end as I did in the picture, or heck why not save it! If you’re planting multiple rows of trees, please leave yourself atleast 2 spaces between the rows for easy harvesting!.

Also.. never plant a tree DIRECTLY next to a “Short crop” like strawberries, it’s a pain to target, just don’t do it for your own peace of mind.

—–OK! On to “short crops”! Don’t worry guys we’re almost done!!!

Lets refer to image number three. Same thing goes as the last. Blue is where you’ve planted, green are left over fertalized spots. For short crops you can plant them where ever and how ever you like, in a row, or in a box of nine it’s perfectly fine! Oo I rhymed. The only thing I can say is keep them away from tree’s to avoid targeting issues. I personally think short crops are funnest to do in squares of nine then rows like trees. You can plot them all right next to each other too. So if you have 3 sets of seeds feel free to mush em all together cause you can run right over them to harvest them! Short crops are super easy!

ITS THE HOME STRETCH TAKE A MINUTE TO BREATHE!!

Ok ready? breaks over back to work!

Lets get to the mechanics of gathering!

Harvesting crops—-

When you’re reayd to gather fruit you need to sit right inside your farm with it UNPAUSED. Wait patiently for the crops to apear before your very eyes! Don’t worry it doesn’t take long at all.

As soon as the plants come to fruit (or vegetable XD) step up to them, target the plant like you would any gatherable item in the Sanrio world, right click it, and click the gather button. Like any gatherable item you’ll be able to do this a few times but not many. Once it wont let you gather anymore just sit and wait for the fruit to come back, it happens really fast. Then just repeat over and over!

Each plant has a life span, a certain number of times it can go through a harvesting cycle before it dies. So if it turns brown and won’t give you fruit thats ok, it’s all a part of it’s natural life in Sanrioland!

ONE FINAL NOTE!

Trees will give you two options.. to gather wood or to gather fruit, only gather the fruit. If you gather wood from it too many times it will dissapear and never come back, you will nto be able to get all the fruit you want or need out of it. So UNLESS you want the wood specificly never ever touch the woodcutting button.

In order to get rid of dead plants- right click them and THEN you can hit the wood cutting button. After a few time’s they’ll dissapear and you can replant that spot with something else.

If you have any further questions please feel free to ask me anything! Play with your farm anbd find out whats right for you! Just because this is how I do things doesn’t mean you have to do it this way, it’s simply what I’ve found to work best for me! =D

Been playing for a while, having a great time! Closed Beta was fun but this seems alot more full. The people are great, we have an awesome communtiy, anyone who’s not playing you better gear up! Once Open beta is up I hope to see you all there! You know what they say “The more the merrier!”. I tend to agree with that saying.

Some things I’ve seen that I love:

Monsters won’t just drop materials and quest items, they will also on rare occasion drop gear or accesories for you to dress in.

The animals are THE ABSOLUTE cutest little critters I’bve ever seen!

Farming is addictive and charming as all get out once you figure it out, and guess what!? You can pause your farm!!!! Plants grow and spring up fast so theres very little wait for anything!

Chatting and making friends is easy, anyone is willing to help out, our GM’s are very very friendly and willing to talk like they’re anyone else. They’re not ominous or overbearing like in alot of MMO’s they don’t play the “high and mighty” card and they’re sweet as sugar cubes!

There’s tons more to talk about but I need to get back to farming and having some fun. Come see us in Hello Kitty Online! My name in game is Diva. Don’t worry i won’t complain that the tempurature is too high or the bottled water isn’t cold enough, my name doesn’t represent my attitude, so come say “Hi!” I don’t bite ;)

See you in game!!

P.S. For those of you playing that stroll across this blog, please feel free to ask me for any help, I’m always glad to help in anyway possible!
