Expedition in Soki's Hamlet Chapter 1

(Meeting the Monster)

 

Settled in a camp just before a village, everything looked snow-white, but instead of snow it was actually ash, but an ash purer than the most beautiful of pearls, so pure that it actually looked like snow. The temperature was a little scorching and the ash was very good at spreading the summer heat and reflecting the gorgeous light. It even slightly reminded me of Gate to Desert Beach...minus the water which was instead replaced by lava. The trip here was nothing worth mentioning, a few weird aggressive insects which got accustomed to the harsh environment were our only distraction, and the 'best thing' that had happened was our archaeologist sniffing some volcanic ore and working us to death to excavate it, with the promise that we'll get a share later. My colleagues were 2 shamans, an archaeologist, an engineer, and a teacher. Yes, a teacher! And ironically he was the sturdiest out of all of us, even sturdier than myself, a fighter. And myself and my colleagues weren't the only ones to think it was extremely weird for him to want to join us at the Megalopolis Guild Office.

 

The settlers beside us were giving us curious looks because of him, and we could almost guess why: 'what in the world would a teacher be doing here?!'. He was wearing a suit, sunglasses, a small golden pin which read "Phantom School" and had a pointer stick, giving out his profession, but he was also wearing a gentle smile that was telling us he was used to this kind of attention and would not care even if the entire Megalopolis stared at him. He was also very confident, thing which showed from his demeanor of slapping his open left palm slowly with his pointing stick while leading us with a casual walk, as if he was ready to turn any delinquent who shows in his way into a top student. The most important, with him in the lead we looked like a class on a school trip, so it was no wonder we would become a laughingstock, and it was impossible to take the leading spot because of his arrogance, which would let him be second to none!

 

Back in the day when we formed our team, the teacher was the last to join us and we had about appointed everyone to a role. The engineer could fix everything and he was also a marksman, just remembering the way he told me to toss 10 coins the size of my thumb nail in the air just for his bullets to bore perfect holes in the middle of them from 500 meters away makes me shiver in excitement. I made no mistake though, and did this from behind a tree in the field. His every shot scattered the wildlife which had not returned even half an hour after we stopped.

 

An archaeologist didn't even need to prove their worth to join our team, we actually would've begged one to join us if we hadn't been this lucky to have one voluntarily want to become partners. Venturing out is not even worth it without one of them, even the beginners are really sought-after, just to nurture them and have a guarantee that once they improve they won't have the trouble of seeking this important 'resource'. They can detect traps, lay traps, detect hidden objects underneath the earth, identify artifacts and valuables found during adventures, and can even fight from a distance! There are even archaeologists who specialize in fighting and can even shine brighter than battle-based professions. It is outrageous how many things one can do and how few of them there are.

 

The two shamans came as a pair, a must in any kind of situation due to their healing abilities, and apparently they were brothers and would not join us unless we accepted both of them, but they lacked nothing in terms of skill. Back in Megalopolis they had both conjured a warm breeze and lifted the three of us, myself, the engineer, and the archaeologist, all the way on the Megalopolis Guild Office. We were not aware of their devious plan, and after lifting us there they actually had us promise to invite both of them or else they would not get us down, and that's how we came to be. But still afterwards, they followed suit to the engineer and went to the field, decimating a part of the forest with a rain of magic arrows which had replaced the azure green with spring ocean blue for a good whole minute until the magic remnants had dissipated. During this 'disaster' they had accidentally wounded a Pochi which was hiding in between the trees but they healed it as if nothing had even happened. This instantly made us view them with admiration instead of the fury of being tricked.

 

When it was my turn to show off what I was made of I increased my heart rate and made it pump blood faster, releasing an imposing aura which actually made them take a step back unconsciously. My right arm was bulging with veins and after charging it behind myself while leaning forward for a second, I shot it forward towards two trees who were in line with a slight twist of my body to the opposite side, instantly sinking it inside of them all the way to my shoulder. I especially chose this place because the two trees were very close to each other, and just hurting a single tree wouldn't have been much, but two of them without losing momentum was actually rather impressive. The engineer even gave me a smile and a nod of approval, while the rest just raised their eyebrows and were a little startled because such damage was caused by a fist.

 

But when we returned we met this monster, which at the time seemed nothing more than a joke, and this joke actually showed us that we were the actual jokes. What qualifications could a teacher have to join a team of warriors who could die at any moment? And he actually had the guts to be the one to ask to join us, not to mention that his arrogance was second to none, later on giving birth to the nickname 'Kingaroo(gance)'.

 

Now make no mistake, before this we had never met a teacher, one must've been crazy to choose this profession, and word has it that everyone who did would be sheltered all the way in Phantom School teaching classes, influencing even more people not to choose this as their life-long aptitude, so even seeing one was pretty rare. We respected them for their sacrifice but this was not the place for them.

 

"Hey aren't you in the wrong place? School's all the way in Oops Wharf, friend, surely this is not your first time here, right?" said someone from our crowd, but as he stepped forward he seemed to have displeased this teacher in front of us, so much that his whole face contorted more and more the closer he got. His iron smell was akin to blood's, so to us it was nothing as we were most of the time covered by it ourselves, but the teacher's overreaction gave away the fact that he had never been in a battle.

 

The teacher measured the engineer from head to toes and replied with a chuckle "Yea, yea, the others told me the same thing but it just gets old, you know? How about I just show my friends here what I am capable of, then you can just decide for yourself if I can join or not." It was an attitude we had never seen before, speaking down to us 'peasants' from a place up high out of our reach.

 

Nevertheless, we were actually curious as to what this teacher could be so confident in that he would not even shoot a second glance at this oil-covered and iron-smelling master of metal in front of him, so we just replied with a nod which seemed to actually satisfy and surprise him, as if he was expecting another joke due to his profession. This favour from our behalf seemed to have actually made him consider being less moody to us and give us the least amount of respect. He must've tried to join dozens of teams before ours to have gained such a temper.

 

The teacher was slowly moving his gaze through my colleagues and stopped at me. We stared at each other for three seconds before he finally uttered the motive of his intense gaze in a polite tone, but it was still said in such a way like he was asking a student to step forward to the blackboard: "The fighter there, could you help this teacher for a second? Please come in front of me." 

 

I just pointed at myself startled with raised eyebrows, and took two steps forward while the engineer stepped back without turning around. If he wanted to do a trivia, why would he choose me and my muscle-brain instead of the shamans, who were known to be very knowledgeable? But soon I realised that if he chose them first, it would actually lay the foundation for another joke which they were prepared for. And the teacher asking for me disappointed the two shamans as if they were ready to answer to "What is the capital of Caballa Island?".

 

The teacher lost no more time and said frankly while forming fists and resting them on his hips, bringing out his chest in a confident way: "Strike me with all you've got." ...There was no fear on his face nor hesitation. He clearly saw my veins still bulging on my arms from a little ago from when I had demolished two trees with my fist. I thought he was a madman.

 

Needless to say, all of us were really surprised and laughed out loud for the entire guild to hear, especially me. At the time I could do nothing more than laugh and step forward to pat his belly with my palm in a friendly and joking manner, but the instant my hand reached his belly my face dropped. He was wearing a shirt that was a little baggy, which made me ask out in shock: "Do you have armor underneath your clothes?".

 

My question seemed to disappoint my other colleagues whose laughter had now turned into a chuckle, like this guy in front of them was the most pitiful person they've ever seen. Did he really think he could slip away with such a trick? But his reaction shut all of us up. He laughed out the loudest yet, startling yet again the rest of the guild who now started giving us looks of annoyance. He didn't even reply and just unbuttoned his shirt to show us that he had no hidden equipment underneath. The moment he unbuttoned his last button, my eyebrows had formed a deep frown. I had definitely felt as if my palm had touched steel. He had clearly noticed my reaction, and at this point his face formed a smirk like a cat who stole cream and didn't get caught "Strike me with all you've got."

 

The others were staring at me as if I had betrayed them. " 'You hurt your hand earlier and lost your senses? Better ask the brothers to fix you up, what's up with your reaction?" remarked the archaeologist as she lost a little trust in me and was even a little worried about me. They looked bad because of my mistake and I was definitely upset because of it, so I decided to give this guy what he wants... But I can't say I wasn't worried, so I had to confirm it first "Are you sure? Like, no matter what happens it's not my fault, right?".

 

Instead of planting a seed of hesitation in his heart, my question actually seemed to have sprouted excitement from every part of his body. I was even wondering if he was a masochist at that point. "Yes, of course I'm sure, I've even said it myself two times, now don't hold back or you'll make yourself look bad." was his response... followed by a wink... This actually made me hold back in disgust rather than worry, definitely a masochist.

 

I took my stance with a foot behind myself and lowered my whole body, especially my still bulging-with-veins right arm in preparation for a strike, but I thought of using just enough power to knock a regular person out. The teacher still had the same position as if he wouldn't move until his wish was granted, which was to be hurt. I frowned and released a light to medium punch just under his ribcage to force the air out of his lungs, but the moment my fist met his flesh, it had instantly stopped. I did not stop it myself... but it was rather stopped by an external force, and it felt like that force was a huge boulder. My strike didn't even make him flinch, and he was still in his initial position. I felt like an ant trying to lift a castle, and the others did not pay it much mind, thinking that I was afraid of hurting him.

 

With my lowered body, my fist was still holding onto his stomach, and looking up at the teacher's face all I could see was a huge smile that had replaced the previous smirk. "Tsk tsk tsk.. I told you not to hold back, how much of your power was that?" each word was followed with a slow shake of his head as if he couldn't hide his disappointment. "Don't worry, nothing will happen. Strike with all your might." He made it seem like me worrying about him was a huge joke, it actually felt like he was worrying about me more that I was worrying about him. Once again I confirmed "Are you sure?" 

 

At this point he was annoyed by my repeated question and an even louder 'tsk' was heard from above my head "How many times are you going to doubt this teacher here, when you've even seen it for yourself! You definitely can not hurt me not matter what!" His words definitely struck at my pride. "No going back on your words now." And as if he wouldn't allow my arrogance to surpass his he replied with the most sophisticated "Hmph!" I had ever heard in my entire life.

 

I took back the exact same stance but this time I waited for my heart rate to increase and pump blood faster "Now we're talking, took you long enough." This sentence only made me stare up at him with a raised eyebrow without even lifting my head. I had charged my punch so much that it was trembling and was pulsating with a red color, which startled my colleagues. "Are you trying to kill him?!" a shaman yelled in alarm. No one else said anything else as if this was everyone's thought. But to their surprise the teacher looked at them in an upset manner. I was at full power right now and was gritting my teeth due to holding this massive force inside my punch, and without notice I just sprung it with extreme speed, dropping my body weight to the ground along with my punch which was aiming for the center of his stomach. 

 

Looking up at him with a smile on my face, I was expecting to see fear and horror but he actually... had an even bigger smile than myself and he still retained the same pose. The moment my punch landed on his stomach a huge shockwave resounded throughout the entire building, and the noise was that of an explosion while the wind was that of a tornado. I was looking ahead at the wall expecting to see him splattered or to even see a hole in the wall but to my shock I had only heard a small grunt which immediately made me look in that direction, where the teacher stood just a few feet away from his initial spot. This is a strike that was even stronger than the one which destroyed the two trees, yet he took it head on and was only left with a red mark imprint of my fingers and knuckles on his stomach.

 

Catching his breath, he eventually fell on one knee when I was standing up staring at him in shock and awe and in no less than five breaths he actually praised in a calm manner with a steady breath "Oh? Never before had someone made me kneel. You deserve my praise fighter, and to have such a strike without having any killing intent!" following which he stood up and smirked at me. I didn't even have to look behind me to know that my team's expressions were the same as mine, maybe even to a higher degree. My mouth had actually even opened without my notice and I could not even utter a word for a while. And at that time I didn't even know that defence was actually his secondary aptitude, while his first was something even more shocking.

 

Having already measured the engineer beforehand, he didn't even need to look a second time to call him out, but mostly, he did not in order to avoid his direction for his iron smell not to be too overwhelming, and in his shock, he was brought back to reality a long time after he had been called "The foul-smelling gentleman there, your gun looks powerful and quick. I would like to go against it, but let us step in the field, we've already caused quite the commotion here." While talking he was looking around to see shock, amazement, awe, fear, and all kinds of emotions on everyone's faces. 'Is this really a teacher?' everyone thought.

 

Usually such a commotion would result in the culprits being chased out of the Guild building, and such commotions were more frequent than one would think, but there may have been none to such a degree, so no one dared to step in. We had to comply to the teacher even if we didn't want to so higher-ups won't be alerted and interfere, since then we wouldn't get away with it so lightly.

 

Arriving at the field, the first thing the teacher did was lean his head back and breath in the fresh air with a smile brighter than the sun on his face. He now knew that we would follow him no matter where he went just to find out what he is capable of. We still hadn't recovered from our initial shock, but he still spoke the reason of bringing us here to the field. Previously he stated that he wanted to 'go against it' but we had no idea what he meant. He stood in front of the engineer barely holding back a disgusted face, and turned around and walked fifty feet. He once again stood around and yelled even though it wasn't necessary "Try shooting me! If a single bullet of yours can even scratch me..." He reached out in his pocket and took a small pouch, the little movements he did already made the entire field ring with the noise of riches and wealth. "You can have this!".

 

I felt scammed thinking of why I didn't get such a chance, and even pointed out my frustration. "Why does he get money and I didn't?". The engineer turned around and his look pointed daggers at me, thinking my question would make him stash away that pouch. I could clearly see droll on the corner of the engineer's mouth... but as soon as I wanted to take back my words, he teacher said in a normal voice, still smiling "This is different, previously you had my permission to touch me, now it's touching me without my permission so of course if anyone is capable of doing so he deserves this pouch" After saying so he threw the pouch a few times in the air and caught it with his palm. Afterwards he turned towards the engineer "You have fifty tries."

 

'FIFTY?!' Is he trying to get rid of his money? And he even said it himself, this engineer's gun is very powerful, what if something goes wrong, but as if to appease our worries, mostly ours since the engineer would actually kill him for that amount of galders, he continued " I'll let you shoot me once in the arm so you'll see there's nothing to worry about, and you can aim the bullets for my vitals." And after thinking for some while he added "But this doesn't count towards our little game." A glare towards the engineer contained an emotion stronger than any of his words. 'You can't hurt me.'

Entry Title: A Helping Hand, a Nurse

 

 

 

 

This is just a short story of my life. Some might not know but I'm a nurse in a hospital in the Philippines. You might think that I had a huge salary because I'm in a medical field, but no. Nurses in the Philippines are underrated and unappreciated by the government. We had few to no benefits, minimum wage salaries and are overworked due to a lot of nurses preferred to go abroad than to stay and served the country.

 

To start, My life has been a Hospital-Home-Sleep life. Sometimes I could only eat once a day due to busy schedule. And if I have time, I play Trickster just to talk to people who I met online, cause sometimes the people we haven't met yet are more real and had sincere friendship than those you meet from day to day basis. On day offs, I preferred to sleep or play games online may it be on PC or mobile. But even though my life is difficult, I still manage to smile in front of my patients. I just brushed it all off when I start my day as a nurse, forget about the negativity and just stay positive. Stay positive and all your patients will get better in no time. I talk to my patients and to their significant others. I learned a lot from them that I did not learned in school. I get attached to them easily and treat them as a family with respect. By understanding and patience, there will be no toxicity in work and in life. They get admitted in the hospital under my care because they need help, they need someone to take care of them while their family members are busy working and earning money to pay for daily expenses and hospital bills. I learned to pray to God not only for myself but for them as well. I have a family, not by blood, but because for my compassion for my work.

 

But...

 

Even though I'm a Filipino Nurse with a low salary, exhausting nurse to patient ratio, toxic/terror doctors (some had really scary faces when they're angry huhu), I don't mind. Just by seeing my patients leave the hospital (because they're better) and say "Thank you" and how happy they were because I was their nurse/their family member's nurse, all my hard work taking care of them from admission to discharge are paid off. They still recognize me even if they meet me in public places. This is how you leave a mark in their hearts. This is how you take care of people you cared for.

 

THIS IS MY LIFE.

 

THIS IS HOW YOU LOVE YOUR WORK AND YOUR PEOPLE.

 

THIS IS ME, A PROUD NURSE, YOUR HELPING HAND.

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Thank you for reading. Hope you learned a lot and knew me a little by now hehe.

Please don't forget to like my post. Salamat!

MY LIFE AS CLEFT LIP & PALATE KID (before and now).

Hello, my name is Nelly and I was born with a cleft lip and palate with an underbite.

If you don't know whats that check online please before reading this story. 

My life was hard growing up, I had 3 surgeries while I was a baby. Two of them was to close the gaps in my mouth and on my lips and the third one was to fix my breathing through my nose.

When I started with elementary school the constant bullying started.
I was being called a fish (because of my mouth),  rhino (because of my nose), a retard and much more cruel names. That bullying at first made me sad, I was deeply affected emotionally, and my mom had trouble with me going to school because of it.

And to make it even worse, my teachers didn't really care about it. They were more concentrated on better pupils with richer parents.

But later when I went to high school I became proud of who I am and I accepted all my scars with braveness, they surely made me a better person than those rude schoolmates!

As I grew older I had 4 more surgeries. The last one happened exactly 1 month and 4 days ago.

It was an upper jaw surgery to help fix my underbite.

 

It was a life changer for me. Nobody stares at me anymore, children don't make funnny faces at me on the bus anymore and I look absolutely different from the profile. I'm so happy, to be finally able to communicate, smile and laugh without hiding my mouth with my hand, I can take selfies without worrying to be ashamed of my face! 

Even my breathing is so much better now. I am so proud of myself, because I went through alot and kept my head up, didn't surrend myself to nasty people around me.

A special thanks goes to my parents and friends,  they supported me through all my medical journeys and without them I would be very much lost. 

Let this story be a reminder to everyone who is struggling with a similar problem. Don't kneel infront of rude and negative people. You'll make it! Be proud, be strong and be

yourself!

How I found Trickster Online

 

Growing up I've always loved RPGs. This dates back to the NES era, somewhat over 27 years for me, where some of my favorite games were RPGs. They include 'Zelda 2', 'Guardian Legend', and 'Crystalis'. However it's sad to say that I never finished any of them because they were so "Nintendo Hard" and well... I was just a kid back then, I wasn't very good at video games. Moving onto the SNES era, this was where I found 'Secret of Mana' and is and will be one of my favorite games on the SNES. I do love other RPGs too like the Final Fantasy series, and well... just about anything from SquareSoft back then. Playstation One remains to be my all time favorite console and I've played the hell out of many of the RPGs there, and to name a few: 'Vagrant Story', 'Brave Fencer: Musashi', and 'Legend of Mana'.

 

If you haven't noticed, what do all these games have in common? Well for the most part they all involve action... and yes they're all Action RPGs. 

Heck I actually skipped a console... but it isn't a console, it's on PC. Who can forget Diablo 1 and 2? God... the countless amount of hours I've spend on these...  you don't even know.

 

Back in 2001 to 2002, I swear I remember it being those years, my brother mentioned a particular PC RPG that you can play online. That is none other than the (infamous) 'Ragnarok Online'. It was so hyped back then, it remains to be one of the most memorable Online Rpgs I've played. Amazing music, cool gameplay, massively multiplayer, cute graphics, it was just an awesome game. The problem was...   I never had a computer powerful enough to play it but eventually I did get to play it when my brother was heading off to college. My parents bought him a new computer powerful enough to do most things he can do in college... and play ragnarok online (lol xD). But when he headed off the college the only way I could play was to introduce this game to my friends and hopefully play it at their house LUL.  I did manage to play many many hours of this game, leveling up, collecting items, chatting with players, etc... until I ran into problems... MANY problems.

 

1: the lag. It was terrible to the point of unplayable. My character just stands there doing nothing while it may appear to be attacking an enemy. Once the lag subsided i would see some hilarious accelerated action where enemies would die instantly, characters would run past the screen instantly, and damage numbers would flash the screen 10 times per second, followed by very loud amplified sounds because of the many hits/damages on the screen. Spooks the crap out of me every time this happens. You know what also doesn't help? 56k modem. LOL.

 

2: Server problems. If you get logged out you would have to wait minutes and sometimes even hours to log back in. 

 

3. Botters. They have no regard for you, they steal kill and have some pick up hack where they can pick up any item regardless of who killed it. Seriously unfair.

 

4. Server wipes and mini wipes/Huge maintenance. I guess I was playing a "beta version" of the game. One time the server went down for maintenance for a week and when it came back the devs told us that they deleted all our items from our bank/storage and inventory BUT we got to keep whatever we were WEARING before the server went down. But mechanics changed, there were some items that some classes no longer could equip so basically I had a half naked character. As time went on and my access to the game was even more limited, the server was wiped to make room for the "Official Ragnarok Online Server" where you had to PAY2PLAY. That idea didn't excite me, I never actually paid to play and so I kinda forgot about the game. I did stay in contact with a few friends I made over the course of playing the game. They actually paid to play but to my unfortunate news they ended up botting.

 

5. Difficulty: For a brief while before it went pay2play, but it was after a mini server wipe, the game got more difficult. The game had new enemies, drop tables, mechanics, maps, enemy location and stats changed, etc. so much that it was harder to level or get anywhere in the game if you also take account into the massive amount of lag in the game too.

 

So eventually Ragnarok Online kinda faded for me. I was searching for a new game to play but nothing came up as I was still stuck with a crappy computer. About 3 years later my brother got a new computer and gave me his old one. Ragnarok online was probably one of the first things I wanted to try out again after hearing there were "private servers" to play on... but it just wasn't as fun anymore. The same things were present: Lag, server wipes, botters, etc. 

 

And THEN something happened. I don't remember how but maybe it was from one of the MMORPG sites that lists a bunch of games that are available for us to play, I found 'Trickster Online'. At first I thought... man this is too cutesy for me, looked weird, but eh.. I'll try it out. 

 

It was everything Ragnarok Online did but like 20 times better. It didn't lag (or maybe it did but none of which was memorable or as bad as RO), better looking characters (the ones in RO looked like they were so sad looking), hilarious animations, and actually GOOD drops. I had to introduce this game to my friend and managed to get him to play with me. Please note that this was back then in around the year 2006-2007 and I was starting college. 

 

Trickster Online back then was a bit different than the Trickster Online that we are currently playing. I may have posted this on another topic but I guess I'll say it again. The game had items like pets you can buy and upgrade as you level up. Drilling was weird, it was very optional and didn't reward all that much. The drill tables were different but I never got a single rare item from any of the maps in the game. The power class was kinda crappy but the charm class was probably the best (probably...). The only evidence I have is my friend who managed to level up much farther than me and much easier than... a power class. Enemies and their locations were different. I was level 60 fighting salamanders at the volcanoes. Map layouts were much different. Bosses spawned in more than 1 and so you had to share it with players who are also fighting them. Oh it was a different time...

 

Eventually college work had to take priority and so I played Trickster less and less until... like RO i forgot about it. My friend however continued to play but I don't exactly know how far he got. I remember he got to some snow hill area but that's all.

 

Fast forward to these past few months, I don't know what got to me but out of the blue I decided to download Trickster Online. Maybe it was because I was re-playing Diablo 2 ladder at that time and ladder had ended so I kinda wanted to play something else. Wow this brings back memories and many things changed from what I had remembered it to be. Newer npcs, MANY MANY MANY new quests to help with leveling (it wasn't just hunting quests like back then), and definitely many new items introduced. From the website I guessing this is what they call "Season 2". I started around Christmas time and chose the class that I'm most familiar with, the Bunny. Right now I'm enjoying the game more than I have before and have even spent some money to support the game. I usually don't spend money but this is the kind the game(s) that I enjoy playing and so that's why I support it.

 

Yeah and so.. that's my story. Wall of text, thanks for reading, I hope you haven't fallen asleep. I definitely left out a lot of information that kind of want to share but to me this isn't the topic for it as it has to do with the mechanics with the game and what happened to it in between the years. I have always wanted to share my experience with the game ever since I redownloaded around christmas time. But the problem was I couldn't get anyone to confirm my email here at the forums LOL. And now I'm glad to talk about it.

 

In between the years I have played some other MMOs but they sort of faded away. I never played WoW or any of the other really huge player based games, but I played Neverwinter. Over the course of gaming it just got too time consuming to keep up with gearing and so I had to stop. And also something happened with a few items where while I didn't lose them they de-valued, GREATLY, causing me to lose a lot of money. Fearing that this could happen with future items I had to stop as this wasn't something I liked happening.

 

Trickster Online is different. Whether it is a good thing or bad thing, there are no updates to keep it competitive in-game. This is something I like as opposed to something like WoW where you're expected to be in a huge party doing raids and you must upgrade your equipment every week to be any good or get invited to future raids. I wasn't into that kind of thing so I didn't really play those games.

Not an Entry (I just feel like writing something)

 

 

I had a dream two nights ago. In my dream, Taylor Swift is dead and becomes a ghost. Now, I don't know why I dream of Taylor Swift, because she's really not in my worldly radar at all. The last time I paid attention to Taylor Swift news was when she broke up with Calvin Harris, then went on that crazy whirlwind over-the-top relationship with Tom Hiddleston, which brought her into my orbit of interest since I love Tom Hiddleston as Loki.

 

Anyway, so Taylor Swift is a ghost. She haunts a building where there's a lot of pipes and metals and stuff; looks like an engine room or a boiler room of some kind. But she's a happy ghost. She smiles and laughs and hugs you from behind if she likes you. Sometimes she appears almost fully form from head to toe; sometimes she appears just halfway (only the upper body is visible); sometimes she's just a misty figure floating almost invisible.

 

When she hugs you, she feels very cold, like you are being hugged by ice.

 

But when she doesn't like you, she will try to kill you. She may trip you up, and you may fall flat on your back. Mind you, the room is full of machinery and metals that can cut you. Luckily, in the dream, she likes me, so she's always happy to see me. I don't know why, in the dream, I go to that building with the engine room. The building feels old, like an abandoned place. It has a haunted feeling to it. Of course it is; it's haunted by the ghost of Taylor Swift.

Stange Awakening

 

A fuzzy dream or nightmare which ever you call it? After falling asleep to a tiring night and waking up the next morning, the awakening was not a good feeling. I had woken up to a strange nightmare and was too afraid to fall asleep. Trying to recall what happen laying in bed, I started piecing details together. It all came back in the nightmare I was being chased by that supposedly purple bear that was supposed to be a child friendly animal bear Barney? You might ask how one could have a nightmare about Barney, but I kid you not I did. My conscious was either out of wack that night or maybe my memory was. I woke heart beating fast and feeling a bit heated. I remember slightly but didn’t want to remember the fact in my dream I was being chased around by Barney in a warehouse which seem like a constant maze without an exit. Now this wasn’t the friendly smiling kid friendly bear, I could only faintly remember he was holding something unpleasant in his hand. All I remember from this was I was constantly running and jumping in the warehouse with obstacles and that I could hear his footsteps chasing me getting closer and closer. Faintly when I woke up I remembered I didn’t want to turn back and look at the horror of how he looked but only hearing the foot steps "thump thump" getting closer no matter how fast I ran. (I’m not very athletic). Fortunately or Unfortunately you can take a guess on the ending. I just remember running until I could not run and jump or hitting a dead end. I had reached a limit, an obstacle and he had caught up.

 

And that’s is where I woke up abruptly and we’ll never know what happen afterward. Strangely enough I had this dream a second time but forced myself to wake up earlier.

 

A strange nightmare and probably most would recommend me to seek some help.

Title: Helpful Mother

 

 

Introduction.

 

 

This story requires a little bit of background to make any sense. Well, my name is Alex, I'm on my late 20s and when I was younger I had sleep paralysis quite often (about once or twice a week).

For those who don't know, sleep paralysis happen when you wake up during the REM (Rapid Eye Movement) part of ur sleep cycle but your body gets stuck as if you were still sleeping (basically you have your eyes open but  your body can't move). During REM, as the name suggest, your eyes move quickly bellow your eye lids and that's when dreams are formed in your brain.

 

During a sleep paralysis you can hallucinate (or, maybe, see ghosts?), in my case, I would see "shadows" speaking gibberish, until I could see their RED eyes, once I did, I could understand what they were trying to convey.

 

Suffice to say that being stuck in that situation is... TERRIFYING.

 

 

 

THE STORY

 

 

 

 Introductions aside, one day, a few years back, I woke up in the middle of the night, sweating, heart beating up on my throat, feeling my chest heavy and having trouble to breath. As I have been in that stage before, I knew exactly what was coming forth: another sleep paralysis attack.

 

As I became more experienced with those, I learned a few techniques to mitigate a probable attack, one of which was closing my eyes and imagine that my body was floating in the air. Apparently, that was supposed to help me relax and snap out of that state.

So, as I closed my eyes and imagined my body going with the motions of my weightless corpse, I actually felt as if I was buoyant (not Girlyant - HUE dad's pun - anyways...). In that sense, I have no idea why, I decided to open my eyes and as I did so, I was flying above my bed and when I tried to look down I fell and I was SLAMMED against the floor. Weirdly, it did not hurt but boy... was it loud.

 

As I lifted myself up from the ground, my mother walked right in front of my door and asked if everything was all right - as expected from the loud noises, she came to aid me, love you mom. She grabbed my hands and we went downstairs to talk about what happened in the living room, sitting on our comfortable coach.

 

On that context, I started telling her about how I was about to have another sleep paralysis attack and that I tried to use the "floating" technique just to see myself on the floor, far away from the bed and how that was weird and impossible. I was also telling her about how weird human perception is and how I probably just sleep walked and lost balance and fell in front of my bed.

 

She, as angelical as she was, kept starring at me with her beautiful smile.

 

That was when it kicked me. My mother was TRAVELING ABROAD. So I stopped talking and said "You are not my mother, she's travelling, who are you?".

As I barked those words, her smile became stained with an evil grim, a grim which I wish I could forget. I'd never want to see my mother making that face.

I felt my body being DRAGGED by my legs upstairs, my head banging on each and every stairs step until I reached my bedroom. There, whatever was pulling me, threw me on my back, right on my bed and then BOOM.

Eyes opened, shadows ALL AROUND ME, THE ABSOLUTE HORRIFYING FEELING, chest pain, difficulty to breath, cold sweat and then, as I looked down in the direction of my feet, my mother started becoming a shadow, with fiery red eyes starring right through my SOUL and as her transformation was happening, she climbed to my bed, knees first, hands following like a wolf from hell.

As she approached me and started touching my legs, I could feel the freezing temperature of it's hands, engulfing me in absolute FEAR, until the shadow stopped, on top me of, and it whispered in my ears "IMPREGNATE ME AND THEN I'LL LET YOU LIVE".

 

After that, I'm pretty sure I fainted or went back to sleep. It was THE most terrifying  and last sleep paralysis that I have ever had. To this day I have no idea if I'm the father of a spawn of hell, but I hope not.

 

My ass was hurting when I woke up (Jk xD)

-------------------------------------------------

 

If you guys like this kind of story telling I have a bunch of other ones that happened to me, but I felt like telling this one.

 

Sorry about any gramatical or lexical mistake I made.

 

 

Much loves, Alex.

Why is that so hard to say goodbye?
 
It is actually fun to think about the past. To remember how things were before growing up and turn into a busy person. When I first met trickster, from my best friend, I had a different idea of how would my journey be. I though I would be a top player on a few weeks and meet a lot friends, be rich and popular and reach lv 400 really fast.  It actually never happened. I mean, I sure did meet a lot of new players but also got hacked a lot of times. I do not blame them actually, it was mostly my fault. I was young and naive, so I trusted in the wrong person. 
 
The craziest part is that I met my first girlfriend in the game, real life girlfriend, the one who actually hacked few months later. The game brought me different feelings. Was due to the game who I also met my first boyfriend (LOL) that Ive never got to kiss him (got hacked first). As I said, naive. 
 
I’m really grateful for the time I spent on trickster. Due to this time I’ve met one of the most important person in my life. He is a great friend. He was there for me when I needed help. He was there when no one else was. Funny part: we have never met each other in real life and we both are from the same country.
 
After 12 years on trickster I have never done most of my original goals. I did met a lot of friends and I have made a few lv 400 characters but I have never got rich or famous (not even close). 
 
In spite of all of those things, I got really attached to the game. That’s why it is so hard to say goodbye. I tried many times but I always got back to it. I have to admit, it’s nostalgic.

This is the mini story of my  

~Online Gaming Journey~ 

I'm sure some of you out there could relate to these tales I am about to tell.

 

So.. where do I begin? 

I know! 

How about the beginning. 

:) 

 

Chapter 1 - Ready, Set, Goodbye.

 

So how did I find out about this game?

Well.. honestly, it was by chance. 

I used to play many an online game, such as MapleStory, Flyff, Canaan Online. The list goes on.

But one of my all time favorites was always going to be Trickster Online

 

As we all know, not everything good in the world can last forever. 

The time had finally come for me and many of the friends I had made along the way to say..

Goodbye Trickster Online. 

It was finally announced that the original game was going to be closed down.

I thought I would never be able to play that game again. It was a game I often enjoyed, being able to simply lose

myself in the many hours of Gameplay, questing, having fun with my guild friends.

Not only that, but I absolutely adored the whole art style of the game itself! 

I actually had a cat over level 200, and I was beyond proud of that too. I will never forget the fond memories I made

on the original game.

 

As life continued, I often thought back to my days of playing trickster. 

I mean, who wouldn't? 

If you loved something and enjoyed it, sometimes it will often re-emerge in the back of your mind. 

The main thing is, that it brought a smile on my face despite the many challenges faced while playing it. 

 

Chapter 2 - New Beginnings 

 

There it was.

Play Trickster.

Ready to download right before my eyes. 

 

I was in shock when I found out there was a private server for this game! 

Immediately I created an account and was instantly smacked in the face with nostalgia. 

You should have seen the smile on my face when I found Play Trickster. Every little thing I did on my new character in the game,

my little sheep, just kept reminding me of what I enjoyed about the game. 

 

As I started getting back into it I often thought about the friends I used to game with along the way. 

Oh, how things had changed. 

But I know they are well, so that's ok. 

These days, it is not as easy finding friends to game with. But those who I have had the chance to 

speak to along the way have been very friendly. It's a really nice feeling to know you're not alone. 

Playing a sheep character instead of my usual cat character was quite challenging. 

But still to this day, the players on this game are super friendly and helpful with advice. 

It has really helped me along my journey so far if I needed a helpful nudge. 

 

Chapter 3 - My Personal Struggle

 

While gaming is something I enjoy doing, it also helps me in other ways too. 

I find myself to be an over thinker in many things throughout life. This isn't a healthy thing to do. 

But Play Trickster is one of the coping methods I use to distract my mind. If I put my focus into something else,

for example the sometimes complex quests or activities on this game, then it actually helps me to push aside what I'm 

worrying about in real life. Many a time, I usually worry about either very small, not worthy of my time subjects; or I worry about 

things that have not even happened yet. It's really nice to just have something to help me divert those thoughts. 

 

Do any of you have similar issues like that in your life? 

Like I've previously mentioned before, it would be nice to not feel so alone in this already large world. 

 

Chapter 4 - May the odds be ever in your favor! 

 

I don't regret the time I have spent on this game, because I do feel like it does help me to just let loose. 

It does sometimes frustrate me not being where I want to be in the game OR real life. But who am I kidding here? 

This game is a journey, just like real life is.

There will be struggles, there will be challenges.

But you also must remember that there is also reward for your hard work in both worlds.

Just because something is difficult to accomplish..doesn't mean that it's the end. 

Just when I thought it was the end for my Trickster Online hobby.. 

along came

Play Trickster 

and for that I whole heartedly thank everyone involved in allowing my online gaming journey to continue.

 

Here's to new memories!

Let's look forward to all that Play Trickster has to offer. 

 

And if you read up to the end of my mini story,

then thankyou! 

^_^
