Interview Week (Chris Drakeflame)


Ahoy! Today we're doing two Interviews! This is the first interview with Chris Devereaux (Chris Drakeflame- Wizard) This is his first interview! I am glad I asked him for an interview, I was planning on interviewing him a lot of times before but I never got a chance to ask him! Glad I can now :) I really hope you enjoy this interview! Here we go :) 

Me: 
Hello Chris! Before we start the interview, could you tell everyone how you got started on Wizard101 and Pirate101?

Chris: 
Well, this is actually an interesting question for me. Three years ago, I remember watching Spongebob, when I saw an advertisement for Wizard101 which looked very interesting. Immediately, I got on the computer, downloaded and started my adventure in Wizard City! I remember after playing through the tutorial and defeating Malistaire's henchman, having to wait around 30 minutes in Golem Tower for everything to load. Thus, Chris Drakeflame was born. Pirate101 was a necessity, of course! I was given a Beta Key for community work, and immediately started playing - Not much of a story. ;)

Me:
Lets talk a little bit more about Pirate101, it launched yesterday and everyone was very excited about the launch! How excited were you? 

Chris:
Well, being a player who has been at it for almost two months already since Beta, nothing surprises me much anymore about the game, other than the fact that as you keep questing, it becomes more and more fun! 

Me:
You have a Pirate101 Blog called That Swashbuckler, what or who inspired you to create your blog?

Chris:
Another interesting question. I was just giving out Polar Cat, Simbah, a bath in the Commons pond on a Sunday morning, since humongofrog messed up his icy fur. Afterwards I was looking for something to do, besides that difficult Avalon quests, I found out that many of my Twizard friends (including you, Edward) had blogs, so I decided to give blogging a shot!

Me:
Do you have any goals for That Swashbuckler?

Chris:
To be honest, all I want is for people to enjoy reading it. :)

Me:
Are you planning on submitting That Swashbuckler to Pirate101 for official?

Chris:
The answer probably merges with that previous question. - No I'm not. You see, having an official Fansite is a lot of responsibility, and much is expected of you. I don't quite think I'm ready for that as yet, since I barely have any time to post, because all of my schoolwork etc. I enjoy helping out on Stars of the Spiral, so right now, that's enough for me. :)

Me:
Do you have any advice for anyone that is planning on creating a blog/site?

Chris:
Just remember, have fun and be yourself. Don't just make a site because you want to get it official, it should be because you want people to enjoy your posts and experiences. :) Remember, when you start a site, you have 0 views/followers. Its your job to continue working on the site and make it interesting. I've seen a lot of people quit blogging because only a few people constantly read their blogs, but do not let that bother you. Once you develop a passion for what you do, you will gain a decent audience. :)

Me:
You're a very nice Twizard on Twitter, I've seen so much prizes you have won from Contests and you decide to give them away to the community to be nice, how are you so nice?!

Chris:
Well.. LOL. I really can't answer this, but I'll try! I know there are a lot of people in the community that are not as privileged as myself to win contests often. so I try to have contests of my own to help them out. Anyhow, don't think of me as kind, I'm very evil. Just the other day, I took a potato chip from someone's pack, and *psst*.. I didn't even say please. ;)

Me:
O: Chris! I don't think anyone reading this could do something that evil! LOL! I mean... x worried because you're evil x Okay.... Rofl, next question! Can you name your favorite attack on Pirate101 and Spell on Wizard101?

Chris:
Pirate101 Attack? Hmm, I'd have to say that Sarah Steel's critical attack in which adventurous music plays, is my favorite at the moment, being only level 11. For Wizard101 spell, I'd go with Sirens. I was a little jealous when I first heard Storm Wizards got to control evil mermaids, while Ice Wizards, such as myself, only got to command a huge, snowman-murdering Mammoth!

Me:
What about the sun?! And time to conclude the interview! Is there any other advice or anything you would like to say to the readers?

Chris:
Yes, never weigh a llama on your normal house-scale. Llamas weigh between 200.3-450.75 pounds, and will quite frankly, break the scale. :) Thank you very much for this opportunity, Edward! This has been my first interview (believe it or not) and I am pleased that someone as awesome as you who conducted it. :)

Me:
Thank you Chris, I'm glad someone as awesome as you accepted the interview! You're a great Wizard/ Pirate and I am glad I had a chance to interview, thank you so much! :) And nice fact! LOL You are funny!
