Hi folks!!! Not much going on in the Geek Family right now. Quests are quests.
But recently, Pink’s little sister gave DDO a try. She designed a character. Halfling, of course. I had her make a fighter since it is the easiest for new players. She chose a great axe to be like Geoff Hanna. What is it about Geoff that my daughters like so much????
She ran the tutorial all by herself. She had me help when she got turned around in the quest and when she needed to climb over for the lever. Once I got her on track, she waved me off.
She did manage to complete the quest, but has not played since. I think she mainly wants to dress the character…lol. She is quite the fashion diva.
I also think that she was looking for Geoff Hanna and his Gamer Girl. As a matter of fact, she is wearing her Ewok outfit for his Gamer Girl. She got the shirt for Christmas from her uncle and was not impressed until I told her that Geoff’s Gamer Girl loved Ewoks. Now, she will wear it all the time.
One of Pink’s guinea pigs was found to be dying one night while we were on Discord. Craig had to deal with a hysterical Pink while I got to hold the dying guinea pig to give it comfort. This left poor Amanda lost. She was upset that Pink was crying, but unable to verbalize it because of her Autism. Geoff, his Gamer Girl, and two other guildies were on Discord talking while we were dealing with the situation. Amanda put on Craig’s headphones and listened to them. She occasionally said Hello and told them what was happening. They kept her busy and safe while we dealt with Pink and the guinea pig. They are true friends, even through the distance. They made sure that she never felt alone. So, she wears this outfit for them.
Not sure if she will return to DDO, but it is a start. Right now, she is playing MineCraft on Pink’s computer.
Still raising Geeks here……
