Welcome to edition zero of The Dove's Chronicle. I am Chief Editor Aesir. Seeing as this is edition zero it will be shortish, though hopefully it will grow. So what do I plan on doing with this? The plan is to be an informal paper. I want to host interviews with community members, sponsor artists and writers, and generally try and build a community based on sharing of art and stories. Why? Well I've always wanted to do something similar and now I am finally setting aside the time to do such.
So what will this paper entail? Well if any member of the community is an artist or a writer I am more than willing to share your art and/or stories. I want to give a platform for people to share their work with others. This does also include YouTube and other forms of media. All you have to do is contact me and we'll work out something so that you get in the paper, it could be anything from an interview to just a few pieces of artwork and how to find them and/or support you. You'll also get a spot in the sponsored artist/writer/youtuber/ect. section.
So with that out of the way let us begin with the paper and see how this goes.
Interview with the Editor
Hello all, so for our first interview it will be me! We'll be discussing my history with the game and a little bit of who I am.
So my history with the game. I started back in the beta with the Green Protection Agency. I came in with them and generally enjoyed it. It was nice and relaxed for a little bit. I was actually pretty active back in those days, posting on the forums and such. Back then I was known as Luxa von Bismarck/Foxmarck and had self-styled myself as mascot of the GPA. I proudly served with the GPA for a long time, fighting alongside them during the St. Patrick's Massacre. However even good times come to an end and I left my green home for new pastures and found myself in Pantheon, with a lot of former GPA members. It was here that I spent most of my time in-game. I was quickly promoted to a government position by then Titan Fistandantilus, my job being approving raids and planning counters. I did this quietly and with some love in my work as it was nice and simple. Of course I was involved in the disastrous war where Fistandantilus just vanished. I was quite honestly devastated, because well he'd been the one to appoint me and now he had basically abandoned us. Even so after the war I chugged on in my role as the most insignificant member of the Pantheon Government, so insignificant that the new government forgot I even existed for a brief period of time. Eventually Pantheon got to a point where there was no one in Milcom but me, someone below literally every other government member. So I got a promotion, taking over the struggling Milcom, and I tried. I really did. However the internal conflict convinced me that I couldn't do anything to help and so I resigned. And that's how I ended up where I am now. I like to consider myself in semi-retirement. It was full retirement, but Felkey somehow dragged me into helping in the Commonwealth, which I couldn't resist, after all it was my old home.
Now on to who I am as a person. Well I'm fairly youngish compared to some people, turning 20 this year. I currently am pursuing a degree in Aerospace Engineering. I have always been passionate about space craft and airplanes. This was brought on by reading a lot of science fiction, mostly by Isaac Asimov. I am an aspiring writer, which might be obvious from the fact that I am attempting a newspaper, though I haven't done a lot with it. I am also an avid gamer, playing mostly strategy games but dabbling in other games as well. Special shout out to Dust: An Elysian Tail, one of my favorite games. I'm generally a PC gamer but I have consoles as well, in particular I'm love with my GameCube still. I enjoy many anime, my personal favorite being Scrapped Princess, and movies, Zootopia. All in all I'm pretty simple and enjoy the little things in life, but also like to delve deeper into things I am passionate about.
I hope that this was interesting, and if not that, at least informative. Thank you for reading.
