Ten Questions With Emily "Kara Akiak" Murphy
How long have you been playing?
At this point 1 year and 2 months; surprisingly a lot.
How has the game changed since you've been playing?
There was Northern Alliance joining Blackwood to verbals finally being clarified going on in the year and two months I've been in game.
Who have you learned the most from?
I've learnt the most from Tao. Make all the comments about favoritism you want, hes still one of the main reasons I know how to deal casino blackjack
What was your best moment IC?
My best moment was actually pretty recent. It was at Feat of Chimeron's questing and I regret not sleeping well the night before, because I was kinda bad mouthing the Fallen Kingdom goons. Now as to be expected, they didn't like this very well. They ended up, cutting of all my limbs, but not killing me. I know the spell heal limb, and I'm near a puzzle. I kid you not, I heal my right arm and just keep going. I ended up solving the puzzle after they had put up with enough of my crap and killed me, but I believe if was worth it.
What was your best moment as a NPC/EH/Player?
My best moment as an Npc was when I was npcing for the night quest as a non-com due to an injury I had gotten earlier that day. People started asking my questions and I didn't have time to run to the marshal and run back, so I made stuff up. I am so thankful that Mackenzie (Valley Girl) and the person she had brought went with it, or we would've been caught in an awkward situation.
What would you like to see changed or developed more in game?
I would like to at least play an 24 hour live event just to see what it would be like, but that's really it.
What advice would you give new players?
My advice is well its great to meet a lot of people and to ask questions and to remember to not commit to anything, do what you're comfortable with. When I first joined, I knew, at that time, I was comfortable with the idea of being in the front lines, so I became a spell caster, who are very rarely in the front.
What do you love most about the game?
I love, and I'm going to sound cheesy here, the people. Honestly, they're really nice, or at least tolerant enough not to snap at people without good reason.
Who would you like to see the next interviews be with?
Jean Baptiste (if you haven't done him already), Hunter of Dustin's Blackwood province I can never remember the name of, and you.*
Anything else you'd like to take the opportunity to put into print?
And my final piece of advice for everyone: when in doubt, use sarcasm to get out.
* Editors Note.
When Emily responded with "and you" to the question of "Who would you like to see the next interviews be with?" I posted the link to my past interview, as she was responding to me with "and you." But lets take it one step forward. "And You!"
