NOTICE: I am currently mostly inactive til August. As such, guild activities are temporarily halted (watch out for major revamps, changes and organizations when I'm back in full force). Any activity with Eri will be rather slow as well, but I am slowly readjusting back to "Mizahar life", so to speak, so do PM me if we have a thread that I left hanging and we'll talk.

[Mirage's Scrapbook] Seek the Truth

Postby Mirage on February 26th, 2012, 8:47 am

I must say that, ever since I became an ST the world of Mizahar has begun to change in my eyes. It is hard to view things as I used to as simply a player, and I often find myself looking at the bigger picture instead of just the tiny speck of sand that is my character in a giant desert that is Mizahar. I wonder if it is like this for all ST's? Does every single one of us have this moment when we suddenly realize that, "Oh, now My actions have consequences on so many and not just those in contact with my characters..."

I may be over-thinking things, or maybe I am simply growing tired with the late hours and double shifts. However, I have begun to develop this strange sense that what I thought was Mizahar was just the outer layer, and now I am beginning to see deeper into the depths of a new reality entirely. Truly I have come to respect everything that others did when I was still just a player. It is so daunting at times, but in that same instance it is the greatest joy I have ever known.

Needless to say, I love being a story teller. I love the work, the struggle, the stress and the creativity that comes with the position. I enjoy organizing and developing this wonderful world, and more and more I begin to see that there really is life in this idea. Once more I pose this, and it has become my catch phrase of sorts.

What is it that makes what we know real, and what is real to us? What defines something as being truth, and what makes us so certain that what others view is not reality to them? Thus I say to you, Question your Reality and open your minds to the possibilities hidden within the truth. There is more in this world than we could ever know, and more and more I see it... Mizahar is no different.

Seek truth, but understand that it may be different if you stand on the pique of a mountain, or at the bottom of the sea.

Mirage,

Fear not! Becoming an ST is a very eye-opening experience, and one I wouldnt trade for much of nothing. The world, when I became an AS, changed in my eyes too. It lost its 'mysteriousness' and I grew a more than healthy respect for all the people who make this game run. Now, Im always sure to thank people for their time and to let them know their efforts are valued. Hmm, my brain is dead right now. Ill be sure to edit in anything that comes to mind later.

You are amazing!



12 hour shifts have started, and Im working 6-7 days a week mandatory overtime. My replies will be slow until I can adjust to this new groove.

In real life I say everyone should work a day of their life in retail. It would give everyone the insight that they otherwise lack on just how shitty it is to be treated like crap by the public.

If it were possible, the same would ring true for being a Storyteller. "Gimmie gimmes" would decrease because no longer is Miza the magical place where you ask for something and a Blue/green/pink name spits something out for you with no effort. The amount of time and passion we spend would be visible to all those that don't really think outside the box of themselves. It would be awesome

Just my little rant.

Ugh, couldn't agree more with you Aidara... you truly see the most vile of society in retail.

And Mirage. My two cents: I think you're an awesome Storyteller!

Mirage, you mean "peak" of the mountain. "Pique" refers to annoyance, and I don't think you meant to say that the mountain was annoyed.

Of course, far be it from me to question your reality. That could very well be what you meant. ;)
