Now I’m tagging these 3 bloggers:
Here are instructions if you’d like to participate: Nemo’s Sunday Social Meme Instructions
I’m a bit late though.
And a bit hungry.
I’m off to have a late night snack.
For this interview I wanted to find someone who’d been playing HKO for awhile. I headed to Sanrio Harbour knowing there are almost always some players hanging around who’ve completed their quests.
And here they are! Look at that little blue guy…his name is Drippet. It suits him.
(I’m Dewberry Jr.)
Anyway, has anyone here played in founder’s beta?

Coming up…an interview with a male HKO player.
Ok I’m trying out this day in the life of thingy.
Since I’ve finished all quests (except pet hunt quests) available in HKO at this time, I’m not in the game much these days. So I thought I’d interview a few players to get their perceptions on the game. To start, I wanted to find someone new to the game and ask about their first impressions. There were no new players in Sanrio Harbour or Florapolis that I could find. But I did come across Melona in South Dream Forest. She was hunting boxpigs. Ah, I remember those quests.
I asked Melona if I could interview her for my blog and if it was ok to use her character name (as opposed to keeping her anonymous). She agreed and we began the interview:
Zaphod: is this your first character in HKO?
Zaphod: you dont mind if I use your character name in my blog?
Melona: its fine
Zaphod: how long have you been playing?
Melona: 2 days
Zaphod: wow! how do you like it so far?
Melona: its so cute hehe
Zaphod: did you find the tutorials and dream room helpful?
Melona: i don’t know what dream room is
Zaphod: when you made your character you started in a tutorial roo
Zaphod: room. talking to keroppi?
Zaphod: it showed you how to walk and right click on the npc..
Zaphod: and did you participate in the dream carnival?
Zaphod: ok one more question: how helpful have the GMs been?
Melona: i think they’re alright
Zaphod: can I get a screenshot of us posing together?
Zaphod: say cheese
Zaphod: thank you and enjoy your game
Melona: you too

Oh ya, here’s the orignal from MFR: http://blog.sanriotown.com/liminal:hellokitty.com/2010/06/22/the-metaphysical-meme-12-things/
This error message: “Please press the back button and fill the required field for spam protection.” is just too generic.
I’d rather it say: “Stop right there, vogon!”
I made a new character to go see this carnival. His name? Slartibartfast.
Here I am with my new pal, Marvin:
I will be leaving Dream Carnival soon, so when I go - So long, and thanks for all the
I guess he has his reasons, but Marvin simply refused to leave Magrathea, I mean, Dream Carnival. But you know me - I can’t stay in one place very long. I’m going to explore other corners of the Universe.
Aw, Marvin, don’t be so sad. We’ll meet again one day, buddy.
