A few days ago I posted in the shoutbox that I had somehow nailed three interviews in a row and got hired for a community management position for a little gaming studio out in California (not Trion, they haven't been hiring any community people for months). I can't give details just yet, but I'll be starting my new job in December. Here's what that means for you, as an ArcheAge fan:
Not a whole lot.
I'll still keep ArcheAgeSource.com up and running. I'll keep paying the bills and our awesome volunteer moderators will keep an eye out for spam and other unspeakable evils. When Trion starts talking about ArcheAge, I'll spend my evenings and weekends updating our news section and ArcheAge-Online.com's front page. Where I'm going, I might even be able to finally, FINALLY stream my own footage on the Twitch.com/ArcheAge channel!
As I pack away my belongings into storage, I've come across quite a few knick knacks and assorted marketing materials from my trips to Gamescom in 2008 and 2012, PAX Prime in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013, PAX East in 2012 and 2013, and E3 2013. I've saved an incredible amount of stuff, some of which I don't particularly feel an attachment to anymore. Aion shirts in US size small? Won't fit me (I wear US size medium, if you were wondering). Hundreds of tiny Elyos and Asmodian buttons? Don't need 'em. Guild Wars 1 oversized box (almost two feet tall, hollow)? Takes up too much space. Lineage 2 shiny box copy, the last version that was sold in stores? Never opened. City of Heroes/Villains box? Still sealed, sadly. A bag full of rectangular "ArcheAge @ PAX 2013" pins? No one came to PAX to pick them up, so I took most of them home.
Would you guys be interested in any of this stuff? Some of it's rare, some of it was never sold in stores. I currently have a new-in-box, sealed Guild Wars 2 Collector's Edition up on eBay for $150, but it seems the game isn't as popular as it once was and no one wants it. If you guys are interested in purchasing any of the stuff I listed above, leave a message below.
Did I just write a WTS thread as a news thread? Maybe.
