It’s been a long time between updates and I wanted to get you all up to speed on what I’ve been doing…err.. or not doing. We have a preliminary schedule being worked on in our Final Fantasy section of the forums and we have a full list of players.
There are a few first time participants and runners from the SDA and SRL communities. I’m really excited about this and thankful for them contributing their time toward our cause. Right now Poxnor is scheduled to be kicking off the event by playing Final Fantasy 8. He will also be playing the FF Legends trilogy. He’s going to be in town for the event and we will make sure to get him a pair of cowboy boots and his own horse that he can ride back to Canada..also…CHEESECAKE FACTORY AND YUMMYLICIOUS (local frozen yogurt joint). Another first time runner for TSG also hailing from the great white North and obliterator of everything Final Fantasy will be the speed running artist Crystal Beauty playing Final fantasy 10. Returning for her 3rd marathon, playing Final Fantasy VI , as I like to call her the Queen of Final Fantasy, Kari “Essentia” Johnson.
We also have a lot of first time players from our own community. Mayday will make her playing debut with Final Fantasy 10-2. Mayday has been participating in our marathons for awhile now by commentating , being a part of our marketing team and also helping with a million other behind the scene event coordination efforts. Fellow Texan Giraffesaredope will be moseying down to the Rocking H Ranch for the first time and playing Final Fantasy XII. Giraffes has been streaming for TSG presents for the past couple of years and is known on the forums as Ninja Monkey. Cosmoid is playing Final Fantasy III and is another fellow TSG Presents streamer, former writer for the blog and a frequent video guest during our marathons. Last but not least, because we just can’t get enough of our Canadian brethren, Wazuki will be making his debut playing the fan favorite Final Fantasy VII. Wazuki joined the community after watching our first Final Fantasy marathon back in 2009. It should be noted, as I think he would want me to point out that Wazuki is a fellow WoW TSG guild member and was SERVER FIRST ARCHEOLOGY for MOP. <<Rofl, that’s actually an inside joke and I’m sure he’s going to kill me when he sees me at the marathon. P.S. If you want to join the guild, we play on the server Nesingwary, horde. Guild name “Schindler’s Pokedex”.
