I’ve had a busy last two weeks wrapping up fall quarter for school. Now that the quarter is over, I have time again to blog and play! So excited!
Anyway, today is day 12 of the annual 12 Days of the Spiral celebration. I had had plans to write about each day, but it fell through due to school. Oh well. I guess I’ll write a recap and review. 🙂
In other news, now that I’m done with school for Christmas break, I’ll have a bit more time to focus on my blog so I plan on getting some of my projects started. So what do I have planned for Spiral: A to Z?
Reagent Maps: As I mentioned last month at the launch of my blog, I plan on creating Reagent Maps. So far, I’ve only done a Parchment map for Caer Lyon. I plan on making more maps and slowly getting them posted over my break.
Who Drops It?: This is a fairly new idea inspired by how much trouble it’s been for me to find information on drops from areas that weren’t top level upon their launch. (For example, House of Scales and Master and Archmage One-Shot Gauntlets.) I plan listing what is dropped where in a similar manner as the Wizard101 Wiki, except instead of JUST having the name of the item, I’ll also list the stat information. I’m finding the Wiki to be more of a pain then it’s worth lately. Of course, I don’t want to try to REPLACE the Wiki, just supplement it. 🙂
Housing Items: I have two ideas relating to housing items. My first idea is to do something similar to what Friendly Necromancer did a few years ago–Housing Item of the Day. I won’t copy his idea exactly, but I had fun reading those posts. Basically, I’ll pick one or two housing items, give some information about it (what is it, what type of housing item is it, how much does it cost, where do you get it, etc), and then use it in a few decorating examples. My second idea is to put together a housing item list/guide. It’d be similar to the Wiki, except there will be more than one item per page. I hate sifting through hundreds of pages on the Wiki looking for all the different tables. So mine will be divided into categories like Tables, Chairs, Wallpaper, etc, and I’ll list the name of the items, a picture of what each looks like, and where you can get them.
Contests: I would like to start hosting small contests, but I can’t do that until I know I have at least a small group of readers. Leave a comment if you’d like to see some small contests. Once I have readers, I’ll start running them. 🙂
