All-Star Meet & Greet Review!

Hello Wizards!  The Meet & Greet was last night, and for those of you who had early bedtimes, laggy computers, or just refused to crawl out from under your favorite rock for the night all missed out on something AWESOME! 


I rolled out of bed in my comfortable mansion known as Lifeglen Manor to those who have had the privilege of viewing the eccentric collector's valuables.  I walked downstairs and opened my door and located the Wizard101 Press sitting on my front steps with the headline Bloggers' Meet & Greet~Fail.  I immediately scanned the first page to determine what had caused the grade of "F" given by one "reporter" by the name of Jack Icecaster.  Upon reading this, I immediately sent word to the Press that my subscription was ending, and to please remove my name from the mailing list.  I ran to my secret lab, grabbed some supplies, and headed back to my room to grab my key ring, and then headed to the memorial terrace to burn a pyre for a lost friend.  Upon completing this task I mounted Mufasa, my lion, and headed down the stairs and over the water to my spiral gate.  I wedged the Wizard City key into the lock, turned it, and opened the door--then stepping out into Bartleby I felt the warm sun shine down on my face, and I knew that everything would be OK.


I've been considering fanfic for some time, please let me know what you think of the above so I can either pursue it or not.  Thanks in advance!

Contrary to the belief of one Jack Icecaster who apparently is "employed" by the Wizard101 Press.  Everyone I have spoken to valiantly defies what that article states, and with much better grammar and poise to boot.  If this were a real newspaper, I might have to charge them with slander.

The night went very well, even with the port bus not going at the right time due to bugged settings, a near-riot in Golem Court leading to a swift resolution, people discovering the hidden path leading directly into the Watchtower that was meant to be a secret for the VIP guests alone, and some people miraculously breaking into the tower (still trying to figure that one out...).  Things were a bit too chaotic for me to take any screenshots, but let me assure you this was one event that you needed to be at!  All in all, I don't think I would have done MUCH different.

On the flip side of those mini-fiascoes, everyone who had confirmed for the event showed, as well as many who were unsure!  I don't know when the next one will be, but there will most certainly be another.  Who knows, I might turn this into a bimonthy event or something...if I can work out the college scheduling. >.<  Thank you to all who came, and for the amazing reviews.  A HUGE thank you to Heather Emeraldflame for helping me to host this, and for all of the help in planning and dealing with the aftershock.  Last but not least, a huge thank you to Cassandra Hexthorn for directing traffic, for patiently waiting for the port bus of doom, and for helping me deal with aftershock.

Your Friend Always,
John Lifeglen


  1. ROFL ...Mufasa!

    Yeah of course you could write a fan-fic! It would be great, I'm sure.


  2. Actually how we got in the tower was that we are friends with some of the VIP's forgot to turn off ports *cough* Dustin *cough* Mooncatcher *cough*. So we ported

  3. Well said, my friend! It was a blast and I am behind you 100% on your setup. I'm sorry I ended up spoiling some of your surprise, though. I'll avoid making the same mistake in the future, promise!
    So, I've been sitting here crafting (for real, bird toys, LOL!) and letting my mind wander over what we were discussing last night. Believe me, I was working up one heck of a post in my head! After reading the wonderful supportive posts, I don't think I have much to add. I hope you can set these up every few months. I think this is a great way to get to know that there are active Wizards behind the blogs and podcasts, protecting the Spiral from Evil!
