"The Guild"

Monday, August 31, 2009

Once again, Svenn has neglected to prepare a Monday Montage. Instead he has ripped off yet another one of Hamm's posts from the guild forums (Note to self: Get Hamm to start guest posting).

Here's the link to the first season of The Guild in case you haven't seen it (The 3rd Season just started). There's ten 3 min. webisodes of made-for-youtube sitcom about a MMO guild...

Aside from enjoying the self-deprecating humor a la Make Love Not World of Warcraft, it occurs to me this is a good way to share a little about ourselves irl by rating how close we are to each personality in The Guild on a scale of 0-5, 5 being closest.

Of course, I'll start [Svenn's answers, I'll post Hamm's below]:

Bladezz: 1 -- I can do a few card tricks, alas I am not very good at "leet speak".

Clara: 3 -- Minus the heavy drinking. I have been know to put the kids to bed early so I can farm some quick consumables before raid time.

Codex: 0 -- Not so much, though she writes the show and I write this blog, so maybe we are more alike than it seems.

Tinkerbella: 4 -- Young, Hot, Asian...well not so much on that last one, but still a close fit.

Vork: 5 -- I heart Vork! I often think up fight strategies at odd times. I also shop at Costco, so I have huge containers of condiments lying about.

Zaboo: 2 -- I can empathise with Zaboo's unrequited love, reference: The Ballad of Svenn and Grayce for details of how it all turned out.

Here are Hamm's answers from the original post:

Bladezz: 0 -- I cannot be any further from this dood. No wonder I never rolled a rogue...

Clara: 4 -- I am a male version of this neglectful homemaker.

Codex: 2 -- all heals are a little bit alike arent we? (shak you listening?) IRL I have issues with confrontations just like Codex, but that's about it.

Tinkerbella: 1 -- actually never got into Nintendo, for all my gaming. The 1 is for being Asian, but aside from that, she's young, hot and aloof. Me, not so much.

Vork: 2 -- on a good day, I am half the gamer this guy is. I am also sometimes able to speaking in complete sentences in mixed company.

Zaboo: 5 -- down to the dominating mom...

First, Honey, it's not a WoW guild. She's very careful about making it neutral to most MMO games. Yes, she WoWs in real life, but it's never specified that that's what they're playing.

That being said, let's see...

Bladezz: 1 - I like to push people's buttons sometimes, but it's more out of fun than out of malevolence like Bladezz

Clara: 1 - only because we both have multiple children and are gamers. Otherwise, I can't stand the way she ignores her kids and husband. I know, I know, it's the stereotype, but it still irks me

Codex: 4 - we're both kind of young still, kind of pretty white girls. We both don't like confrontation (although I WILL go at it with you if you attack my family). While I'm not super popular or anything, I'm not quite as socially awkward as she is.

Tinkerbella: 1 - occasionally I'll bat my eyelashes or pout a little at Svenn to get him to do things for me, but otherwise, not so much like Tink.

Vork: 0 - while I heart this character, we aren't much alike at all.

Zaboo: 1 - because I get the "mom" angle. Now, my mother isn't dominating, she's just clingy. Still. After almost seven years of being away from home with my own family. Maybe I should bump that up to a 2? 1 1/2?

Ty for the correction Grayce, I think you may need to bump your Tinkerbella rating up a bit though;)
