Aggro Me: Guide Me
In the upcoming movie, The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy - oops, wait, that's the wrong guide.The guide I'm talking about is a person who volunteers to help his or her fellow residents of Norrath.Do you refer to your co-workers as "young padawan?" Do you like being called "Sensei"?Then maybe you should check out this thread for links and information on the guide program.Two things I found interesting about the guide thread:1. Apparently this guide program has actually been in existence for a while and there are already over 100 guides. But how would anyone know about it in order to use it? The only way would be by using Adept III telepathy to read the devs' minds.2. Scott Adams, of old-school games design fame posts in the thread. And I mean old-school. I remember loading this guy's games on cassette tapes on my Atari 800. My favorite of his text-based adventures was the one about the fun-house. Anyway, what's funny is that Scott took the time to enter all the information into the guide application (and there's a lot of questions), clicked submit, and lost all his info. The guy is a seminal force in computer gaming, just make him a guide already.Here's some tips for those filling out the application. For the "knowledge" based questions try casting Google or using any of the top four links on the side of this page. I was able to find most answers in under a minute. This isn't the SAT's - the internet police are not going to come and get you if you cheat a little. For the role playing questions just have fun, be creative and go wild.It all sounds a little too much like work to me, I mean you don't get paid for it or anything. Wait a minute, you're telling me I'm not getting paid for writing this webpage? Where's my lawyer!Here is my personal test for those who want to become a guide:Why do you want to become a guide?A. I want to help peopleB. I love powerC. I want to trick people by giving them the wrong advice and then hours laters telling them "You've been Punked!"D.
