Choose My Adventure: Extreme DIY makeover edition

Choose My Adventure Extreme DIY makeover edition

Life may be like a box of chocolates, but gaming is like a Do-It-Yourself project. It may not be as mouth-watering an analogy, but it is certainly fitting: MMOs are a giant construction zone where players build their own experiences in a virtual world using tools from the game and their own imagination.

Each project is a unique undertaking, bearing the personal touches of the builder, whether the builder is an individual or a group like a guild. Some players prefer to build a single residence and settle in, while others enjoy moving from project to project, exploring new territory and testing new tools. Me? I tend toward the former; I'm the kind who tinkers around in one place over a long period of time. But all that's about to change. Again.

That's right, folks; it's my turn to break ground on yet another Choose My Adventure! For the next six weeks I am leaving the comfy confines of my familiar surroundings and allowing you to direct my next MMO project. Yes, my dear Massively friends, you will be the foreman of this endeavor, determining every step of the construction, from where I'll build my newest experience to what tools I'll get to use.

We've had some great adventures so far, and I am really looking forward to seeing the finished product of our efforts this time around. But first things first: You have to choose what piece of gaming real estate we start this project in. Will I fly the not-so-friendly skies in a vintage aircraft or a pirate ship? Or, for that matter, even a spaceship? Do we build our house upon the sandbox or in an established themepark? Fantasy or FPS? New frontier or old familiar lands? You have until 11:59 p.m. EDT on Saturday, April 27th, to put your bid in. %Poll-82180%

Strap yourself in for the ride of (six weeks of) your life! Where are you going? Well, that's entirely up to you, the Massively readers, to decide -- the where, the what, and the how are all directed by you. The who is MJ Guthrie! For the duration of Choose My Adventure, her virtual life is in your hands! Join MJ in-game, on-site, and live on Massively TV to be a part of the adventure and watch the story unfold.
