10 Years at Artix Entertainment
So Many Puns, Amazing Players, and Potions
Back in 2006, I found the original AdventureQuest, a crazy-weird-punny-fun lunchbreak game and quickly got hooked. Ten years ago, in 2007, while working on my graduate degree and running a literary magazine, I was invited to join the team as a forum moderator and to help run their online e-zine, The Zardian.
Two years later, I traded battling stacks of poetry and prose submissions for an enchanted sword and a stack of potion bottles... moving across the country and work out of the Secret Underground Lab. Fast forward a bit and I found a husband (much love to Rolith, currently a coder on AQ3D), 3 cats, 3 ferrets, and an ever-changing number of fish.
Thank you all for the incredible laughter, puns, dedication, and support -- I wanted a life filled with stories, and thanks to you and the other members of our Artix Entertainment community -- I've gotten just that!
