It's been several weeks since I've posted, but things are still happening (thus the title). I've needed to focus on another project in RL (real life), so my KL world has been a bit in the backseat. I'm also collecting some terrific interviews and want to release them soon. More... Continue reading

*General Candel stumbles in from his weekend gameplay.* I’ve taken a week off from writing but I’ve still been writing a lot! I know that seems a bit paradoxical, but I’ve been chatting it up on Palringo in a scavenger hunt of sorts amongst 29 of my pals. The organizer... Continue reading

My memory has failed me once again as I stand before a large, ancient wooden door with peeling paint at the top of a rickety staircase. I say to myself, “Ring the bell once. Knock twice. Ring the bell three times. Wait for the organ music and the door will... Continue reading

It is an oppressive Atlanta heat that hits me as I step from my air-conditioned carriage. I’ve been invited to enjoy a breakfast conversation with a Kingdoms Live player who must be a Southern belle. She told me her name was Lady Arana in our initial texts, and I insisted... Continue reading

It was a dark and dreary night as I arrived at the Kingdom Home for the Mentally Disenfranchised (known as KHMD). I stand now in a cramped entryway dripping from the rain outside. I’m soon let in by a pleasant enough elf mage in pink hospital scrubs. I notice there’s... Continue reading

I settle into my cushy chair and scooch up to the table. (And yes, scooch is a word!) I’m here at the Kingdoms Live Kasino with my buddy CoS and a new chum Doctor Joe. I dig this casino because it’s quiet, and out of the way from the prying... Continue reading

“Yahooo!”, “Whoopee”, and “Yessss” are the shouts that greet me as I come up over the hill to meet my next interviewee, Master Carter. The day is a gorgeous and sunny one in Kingdoms Live. I look out over the scene of recruits, happily participating in sack races, digging trenches,... Continue reading

Cue spy music from TV series, “Get Smart”: Duh-de-duh-duh. Duh-de-duh-duh. Duh-de-duh-duh. Duh-Duh-De-Duh. Duh-Duh-De Dum! Doors of a bank vault, jail cell, and others slam behind me as I walk swiftly down the long hallway of my spy offices. I enter the magic movement room—some would call it an ‘elevator’—that deposits... Continue reading

After a decidely salty and chaotic chat on Palringo with the players BrneyePounder and Aekpani, I have an announcement to make. In what may be becoming a regular online KL tradition, there is an upcoming competition for the most bounty "kills" within clan member teams. And there are extra Legend... Continue reading

I was so delighted by the easy-going style of this “interview” that I am publishing this almost word for word as the "letter" to me it appears to be. Enjoy learning about a certain Chief Rhen… Hail General Candel and greetings from the UK! I would like to start by... Continue reading

In this next installment I want to add to my growing dictionary of Kingdoms Live terms and game play. Emoji – Emoji is a Japanese word for picture characters, sometimes called emoticons. It combines the syllable for “picture” with that for “letter”. Many new players and some old players are... Continue reading

Ian-Only-A-Farm has been waiting since January 20th for me to meet with him. And, I’ve really hated keeping this banker waiting! You see, I’ve never understood entirely why certain players become an ATM, or a bank. It doesn’t seem like it would be that much fun to play KL with... Continue reading

Glad you learned something new about Dark Elf V. When someone we thought we knew, reveals something we didn't know, it is quite a surprise. I wonder what YOU would reveal if you decided to let me interview you?
Whap! I see stars. I rub a knot that’s forming on my head from the prickly tree limb that’s just hit me straight away. “Elves! Why must they always be stowed away in some deep, dark forest,” I mutter to myself. I’ve been trudging through the thick undergrowth, tall sticky... Continue reading

“And heaved, and heaved, still unrestingly heaved the dark sea.” I’m thinking about that quote from Moby Dick as I await my next interviewee, one player by the curious name of BrnEye Pounder. He demanded that I meet him on a rocky beach surrounded by high cliffs in a hidden... Continue reading

My legend points are lower, my level is a bit higher, my bounty kills are up, some chums are progressing too far ahead of me, and unfortunately my energy for playing is low. Luckily I have this blog to keep my KL interest high! I continue to receive daily nice... Continue reading

Like many things in the “real world,” the world of gaming requires some vocabulary. If you don’t know what people are talking about, then you are behind and may miss out on opportunities. At least that’s the way it works for me. For the next few weeks I will have... Continue reading

I arrive late for my second Kingdoms Live interview. Having just flown in from the weekend EverChosen contest, I am out of spirit, but with many more Bounty List successes in my bag! I scheduled my interview with Fou Du Roy for dawn, and I’m already late. I rush into... Continue reading
