My summer has been filled with a massive, 10-part adventure called The Saga Iria
. It's an event that happened inside the world of Mabinogi
, one of my favorite free-to-play sandbox MMOs. Once a week Nexon
released a new chapter, and each time I streamed my first few steps into it, often resulting in my immediate and embarrassing death. Actually, make that deaths. I died a lot.
My companion for this wild ride was Mabinogi
Community Manager Sabina. Sabina is a "fashionogi" (as they call it in-game), someone who enjoys customizing her characters more than sending them into battle. Mabinogi
allows for almost any style of play, from combat mastery to roleplay to fashion obsession.
The community showed up during my livestreams to give me plenty of advice during my hard times in combat because the game is known for its challenge level. It's time to recap some of my favorite moments of those times and discuss what I liked... and didn't like.
