Hellos~ from ripplecloud

Hi friends!!

 

I won’t be there landing on Sanrio Harbour exactly on the dot when the HKO Founders’ Beta action starts because I will somewhere else sipping icky (but free) coffee from the coffee machine and waking up to a new day of life’s responsibilities. So I thought I’d just write a post to say Hello! in advance *waves* ^_^ heehee (yes, it’s another of those lame things I do because I’m going to feel so left out :( )

 

And if you have already created your avatar, do let me know your in-game nick and I will add you once I am able to log in myself, can’t wait ^_^’

 

Oh and please don’t mind the current Charmmy Kitty Halloween theme. Purin’s  kidnapped borrowed Charmmy Kitty to be his new pet, and he has gone and changed to this theme in order to make Charmmy Kitty feel more at home :\ ( I don’t understand that puppy sometimes :\ ) They are playing tag now. - -!

 

I certainly hope he returns her soon. I don’t want Kitty to be mad at me or anything :\ Anyway, see you in the game…!!

Cal is old XDHi everyone,

Founder’s Beta is starting real soon so this will be the final entry made up of Closed Beta screenshots. Woot!!

Can’t wait to meet everybody, including GM-Calealen, who is old XP… and Karen/Plutochan, Starrfire, msmisery, iheartbadtz, fairlady, Noliai, foxy cleo, angie, bunnywinx, chickling, kiyoko, victor5, havel, theola, tidesong, videogamer, hkfood, sailor scouts, Sailoria, BBE, Dawn, Kel, Little Wonder, NoMeNot!, MidNiteEyes, Kaioh, shesroyaltee, and the list goes on… omg, sometimes like Yingdong, I wish can I belong to several guilds all at once! Muahahaha… Anyway this picture was instigated by GM-Tadakatsu.

staring work on BBE's house
Remember all the houses we built in ripplecloud’s virtual musces at work scrapblog? Well of all these houses, we almost couldn’t complete BBE’s!

And that is not because BBE had fallen asleep while playing the game (although she does that at times! XD; who wouldn’t if one has a big fat Dino for a pillow ;P )

BBE is sleeping

In fact, at one point BBE had completed her house, BUT it disappeared again! Rollback? Possibly.  Whatever the reason, all we could do was to roll back our sleeves and start whacking at her house again.

But at late afternoon Asia time, there was nobody else from the guild online :O So the house building went really slowly, with only the two of us cultivating it.

Imagine our surprise when a cute blond appeared before our eyes and said:

  • “I am Sailor Moon, the champion of justice. In the name of the moon, I will right wrong and triumph over evil… and that means my guild will help you build your house!

She was Sailoria, the leader of Sailor Scouts guild.

Sailoria's CB profile
By the way, her birthday seems to be around the corner.

What a kind and generous offer! But it took quite a while for BBE and I to leave Made in Holland and join the Sailor Scouts. :( It’s surprising how one can get attached to something in a few short weeks.

But at the click of a button, our new allegiance was sealed. And more sailor scouts appeared out of nowhere to help build BBE’s house. Woot!

he sailor scouts construction team at BBE's house

The guild chat was buzzing with activity as we whacked at the house. Sailoria told us about how her guild had completed all their houses. Since she was free, she started visiting other houses and found Debbie building her house all by herself! Sailoria offered to help her then, and that was how the Rescue the Homeless movement started.

[Note: I was always feeling guilty because Debbie had PM-ed me for help but I couldn’t leave BBE’s house :( So I am still extremely glad that Sailoria found and helped her when she did. ]

BBE’s house was soon completed! But that was not the end of this story. Some of the Made in Holland friends came online and joined the Sailor Scouts in helping the homeless as well! There was Kel, NoMeNot!, MidNiteEyes, Kaioh, LittleWonder :D It was as if we were all infected with Sailoria’s energy (and she was energetic considering she had gone without sleep for 24 hours!) and we went on to help with the other homeless players.

building house 2There is a bug somewhere in this picture :P

And then another…

micher's farm
It is awful to be building while standing ankle deep in water :( I strongly advise against this padi-field themed farm! …. XP ok I am joking …

All the time, Sailoria was coordinating with GM-Hak to deploy construction volunteers where needed. GM-Hak (the brown guy with the caterpillar) was also walking around the farms to ensure we don’t run out of juice.

building party at micher;s farm

We started on Micher’s house pretty late and even the GMs were unsure if we could make it, although they said it was worth a try.  Perhaps we were the last house building, so there were people stopping by to see the last ditch effort. It was like a house party, without a house :P

We tried the best we could, but as the clock ticked by and Micher kept being disconnected, we could not complete this house in time. :( But Micher was very grateful and even sent us an email after that. I hope you are getting along well in life Micher, wherever you are!

In the final minutes to the end of HKO Closed Beta, we gathered together in Florapolis at Daniel’s platform and waited for the end.

the final minutes before the server disconnects

Fast and furious words
resistance to depart, still
the server closes.

17th entry - The heroic rescue of Kittie (CB final day part 4)

Hang in there Saruchan and MozartBach! I am definitely keeping my fingers crossed that you get your confirmation email and we’ll see you in the game real soon.

Meanwhile I’m just hanging around on my fence here… admiring the scenery… Help! Someone get me off of this fence…is that a pig or a donkey or a horse behind me? Whatever…. Help? Anyone?

*Note: This is a screenshot from Closed Beta. Founders’ Beta is starting soon! Yay!*
*Note2: Did anyone notice the change in footwear. Am wearing boots now haha. I think they make my virtual feet look big XD*

One day in Hello Kitty Online Closed Beta-land, a little black Kittie that sort of of looked like a black fish ran into Hello Kitty’s Secret House to play. But, just as it ran in though the doorway, it got trapped by an evil space-warp bug :O and couldn’t move at all!

Frightened, the little black Kittie cried for help. Her cries were heard by a pair of pink-ish MidNiteEyes (staying up a little too late? XP) and a little blue sliver of ripplecloud. They floated into Hello Kitty’s house but were not of very much help. They couldn’t rescue poor Kittie but they stayed around and tried to comfort her as best as they could.

Kittie is stuck

Poor Kittie was stuck for a long, long time. Meanwhile the GoodMan Tadakatsu also heard in the wind, Kittie’s cry for help. He wanted to rescue Kittie very much but he couldn’t open the magic door to Hello Kitty’s Secret House! :O

You see, the magic door will open only to magical creatures like MidNiteEyes, rippleclouds, and black Kitties (stuff that witches can throw into cauldrons or keep as pet familiars). It wouldn’t open at the command of good but ordinary man like Tadakatsu, even if he is a great fashion designer!

Finally Tadakatsu went to the Great Magician Green for help. The Great Magician Green transformed Tadakatsu into a purple Teletubby head in order to prepare him to start receiving some awesome magical powers. This power included an enchanted toilet-scrub-looking key to open stubborn doors and rescue Kittie damsels in distress! :D

Kittie is saved! Phew! - says Great Magician Green. who was really Good Man Tadakatsu

And that was how Good Man Tadakatsu, with the help of his friend Great Magician Green, saved the day for Kittie and her friends :D

A picture on Hello Kitty's pretty flower swing to remember the happy ending ^_^

16th entry - HKO Closed Beta Makeup Preview (CB final day part 3)

Hi everyone,

Some of us have gotten the confirmation email for Founder’s Beta already, but if you have not, don’t give up! After all, the HKO team has said that they are increasing the quota. So be patient alright?

Meanwhile, here’s a wee little preview of the makeup [shoutout to Fairlady-Z: Did you read me? I said Makeup! :D] in Hello Kitty Online Closed Beta. Hopefully there will be more variety in Founder’s Beta ^_^

toki and chichi are twins!

It was still the last day of HKO Closed Beta (heehee, it’s a long day so I’ve broken it into parts.), GM-Tadakatsu who was back for lunch was continuing to give out clothes. As this was just a preview of the clothes, some of us ended up with the same clothes and looked like twins! XD Yup, just like the fishy-looking red umbrella twins Toki and Chichi you see here ;)

Then GM-Tadakatsu gave ripplecloud and the other CB testers yet another surprise and that was makeup! There were two to choose from. And since there was no way for us to see what they look like, ripplecloud somehow ended up demo-ing the two blushes for the rest on the street. *ahem, puts on best street hawker attitude*

Here you are, Blush 1 -

blush 1
Blush 1

Fancy eye-brightening, radiance-enhancing rosy cheeks? Then blush 1 is for you!

Or, get in touch with you inner, tribal self! Wear twirls and swirls with the same pride as the shamans and brave hunters that populate your ancestral family tree thousands of years back with Blush 2!

blush 2
Blush 2

After the demo, it was easy for everyone to decide which blush they wanted. For me, I was stuck with Blush 2 for the rest of the day because the blushes are like permanent tattoos!!

Blush 2 reminds LittleWonder of...

OK, I didn’t mind Blush 2 that much :P

Oh there were moles too! But I don’t really fancy moles so I didn’t try that, erm, so no screenies hee hee, sorry!

//Update: Look what I found!! A screenie of Sailoria with a mole :P, courtesy of Little Wonder
