Chaos Wars XVII

June 9th, 2013

I had the privilege to attend my first Chaos Wars in the third week of July. It was a wonderful experience right from the get-go! While I was still checking in at troll, Oroku came up to me and said that Phira’s knighting ceremony would be taking place immediately. It was wonderful to share in the community experience as we watched Phira endure her knight’s trial. Once the ceremony had concluded, she bestowed squireship upon Oroku, who, in turn, bestowed pageship upon me. It was wonderful to spend the next few days adjusting to my new title, meeting new people, spending time with old friends, protecting Sir Phira from assassins with the Mountain Mercenary Elder Guard, and fighting on an excellent field.

On my final night, Oroku and I had a long conversation about the last year and what the future might hold in store for us. Following in Oroku’s footsteps as his Page, I have some rpetty big shoes to fill. I hope that I can live up to his reputation and have a large, positive impact on the community.

I didn’t step into my Page shoes right away, and I had a fun discussion with Oroku about how long it would take me to start feeling like a Page. The moment came exactly one week later. The next Wednesday, I was chatting on Facebook with Oroku and the illustrious Echo of Ebonhold. The conversations we had made me truly feel that I have leveled up and finally figured out how to take on the role of Page.
