Being a Blaze Wizard!
This week’s readings inspired me to recreate an RPG character I played as a kid. Growing up gaming was a way for me to disconnect from the real world. MapleStory specifically was a place I could escape to and live a fantasy. I would go on adventures as a magical blaze wizard. I would save cities, defeat evil monsters, and even do smaller tasks like help an old man find his nephew. This dissociative imagination was an outlet for my creativity; I was inspired by the storylines in the game and as a kid, I would draw comics and characters based off the game.
