Welcome to Petulant Pioneering.

 Watch this space carefully. You’re about to witness one of the most honest Granado Espada Blog posts ever in history.

Most sGE blogs are not established to spread fandom. In fact, to say that they start out as expressions of love toward Granado Espada usually means that individual is trying to cover up that they, much like myself, are greedy and unhealthily obsessed with winning. No, we’re writing blogs to grab the coveted blog spotlight. I want that spotlight and the items that come with it. Not one or the other, both.

Why both? Exposure is important, but some contests don’t matter much to the next person. I’ve “won” a contest before and came runner-up in another (See Dark Lord 2 and the Comic Contest.) It hasn’t significantly changed how individuals interact with me in-game. Although I doubt being blog-spotted gives you celebrity status, it’ll at least expose my nude written-figure to the masses. Perhaps enough exposure to encourage some contact once in a freakin’-while, no? I’d like to think that I’m not the only person who’s amused by the screwy things in Granado Espada.

What does this mean for you? This might be your cup of the finest Dang import or a flask of piss. There aren’t many sGE blogs written by Americans, much less from a player who’s weird by both Eastern and Western standards. I don’t expect to win despite wanting recognition, especially after watching the mind-boggling choices done by the staff. You won’t have to worry about me trying to please the staff. Frankly, I don’t know how to in the slightest. It sucks to be fully aware of my acrid sense of humor doesn’t ring well with judges. . .

Anyhow, here’s a scope of what’s the come. Or rather, what isn’t. This blog does not regurgitate news without insight tagged onto it. I am not the local message board, nor am I willing to take that bothersome duty away from the official site. That is theirs to cherish until they grow weary of reminding the player-base that the weekly maintenance is approaching yet again. If you need dates and times for something on the front page of the sGE website, stop being lazy and get your ass over yonder.

I’m probably not going to post raid advice, mostly because they’re either trade secrets or already exploited. The fact is, I can’t quite report on anything that’ll grab the attention of the power-players because I lack the equipment and the levels to do anything fantastic. It’s just the way things go when you’re packing a single veteran with 84 armor, accompanied by a rag-tag group of cardboard cutouts. Now, if I get the appropriate gear, then maybe, just maybe, you’ll get something useful.

What’s left in a blog? Thoughts and opinions rather than charts and graphs. I’ve got plenty of topics to explode all over, plenty. I just need to organize those subjects and make something compelling out of ’em. As any amateur writer, I have a tremendous chance at failing at this whole bloggin’ business by rushing out content. For now, it’ll be short ganders at specific quirks of the GE world. We’ll see how it’ll progress from there.

Alright, fatigue is setting in and turning my brain into jelly. I suspect an edit will come toward this post soon.
