Co-Worker's Not-So-Candid Quotes
"A gifted writer and meticulous QCer, who delights in the intricacies of the Elanthian economy and the Traders' Guild. Equity's a joy to work with, and I hope she realizes how much we appreciate her."
"She's an honorary Trader Team member. She's shy and sticks to herself but she's also strongly opinionated and when you can get it out of her, she can be quite the spitfire. She's wicked smart and has a good sense of humor."
"She's truly incredible. She's a Queen of Shops and the Economy, creating and working on Trader Markets, Embroidery, Pawn Shops, Gem Shops, Banks, Furriers and more. There's not a shop opened in the past couple of years that hasn't had her input. She's also one of the folks doing area design who have helped to continue to expand the game world more and more each year. She does a fabulous job."
"She's the queen of the economy."
"Quite simply, without her there wouldn't be a single shop or merchant in DragonRealms. It's her task, and one that I'd be overwhelmed by, to ensure that shop and merchant prices are balanced to the economy. She's the one who checked over all the Zoluren taverns and did the actual work of adjusting prices. So, anybody who's been enjoying the now-reasonable pricing in The Rest of Ages Inn, and the coming lower prices on origami paper, have her to thank!"
"Equity is one of the behind-the-scenes GMs who does more for the game than players can possibly imagine. For instance, almost every single shop or merchant in the last several years has been checked by her to make sure that the prices weren't either too high or too low -- that'd make my eyes cross, but she does it and does it well. She's also been tireless in QCing, and is the creative mind behind dozens of areas and a bunch of critters. The game today would be a lot more boring place if it weren't for her contributions."
"GM Equity is a smiling whiz at coding things that look deceptively easy once done. She is also always on hand to salvage my poor skills at pricing my creations -- something you all can be grateful to her for. Her creations are well thought out and implemented and she is always ready to lend a hand to shove (oops!) help us release more merchants to drain your hard earned coins. A friendly face that follows a helping hand, while juggling a family and job. I am proud to be working with her."
"When Equity has some spare time, she should really consider taking over the world, because she's the only person I know who has the brains, the diplomacy and the work ethic to manage a global economy. She exercises her vision so skilfully that we're all blissfully unaware of an individual back there managing it all!"
"Simply the best GM to work with. Her skills make any project she is involved in better than it would have been without her. I can safely say that without her help, half the things that have been released for Traders wouldn't be there or if they were, wouldn't be anywhere near as great."
Having been born with a pen in my hand, I first became published at the age of four with an essay in my local paper, and have dabbled in short poetry and fillers while inspiring myself to write the great American novel, and the more challenging part of editing what I write. I've been a GM for about four years and work on game economy, as well have hands into Trader Guild and World Development.
