This is the most brilliant and cracktastic cross-promotion of all time. If I drank soda with high-fructose corn syrup, I’d even think about buying their product. As it is, I’m totally suckered in to the whole promotional schtick because I get

* a free battle-bot pet for all my toons
* the pet counts towards the pet achivement
* free fuel to fill my pet’s tanks
* with the fuel, I get to fight my pet in game against battle-bot pets
* the raffle-token thing is free, so there’s the extremely slight chance I’ll win other shit.

So, yeah. I’ll drink that kool-aid!

Whatever marketing guru came up with this idea totally deserves his porsche and his hot chick with cocaine on her ass for him to snort.

Or… I guess that’s the 1980’s. These days, it’s probably a Prius, a yoga instructor, and macrobiotic prozac.

  1. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. That game was da bomb diggity. Any one of a dozen touches would have made my day, and don’t think the note or “social facilitator” wasn’t one of them. It was … wow. šŸ™‚

  2. despite not getting *anything* done (; i had an awesome time. even though i walked out of game feeling in and out of character like i’d spent six hours banging my head against a wall, it didn’t matter because i still had a *great* time. thank you for the game and everything you do–you’re the awesome.

    now, about my…. (;

  3. sunday’s game was the best time I have ever had playing in Changeling.
    so much, so fast, so FUN!

    Just when you think you have a handle on it, then suddenly, everything changes. couldn’t have come up with a quarter of this on my own. all the players and STs were on the mark and the flow of events were amazing to observe or partake.

    felt like a dance the entire day, even the afters at the lion where even more stuff occured.

    It was the diggity bomb thing that Kyle mentioned and more.
    thank you!

  4. I’m glad to hear it. For me, too, this was the best game I’d had in quite a while — enjoying my NPCs is not the same thing as enjoying my PC, and I haven’t been able to do the latter so well in a while.

    Well-done, woot for you, yay for people walking away happy instead of ravaged. šŸ™‚

    1. Horde-side on Sisters of Elune. And, yeah… graduate work can really get in the way of one’s gaming =P

      If you decide to roll a new character on SoE, /whisper me as Cinnavar. I’m an officer in a pretty cool rp guild that also does light raiding progression. We downed XT last night (and then proceeded to wipe a bunch of times on Kolo…so… y’know… we only kinda don’t suck!)

    I keep listening to the news speak about getting free online grant applications so I have been looking around for the best site to get one.
