Through the Spiral Door
Truth be told, I wasn’t quite sure how to start this article. Final Bastion and its predecessor, Duelist101, have been an important part of my life for many years. These sites have given me the opportunity to explore dozens of different topics, share ideas and have fun with staff and readers alike. I’ve made a lot of friends as a result of my time here and I have so many treasured memories. That’s why it’s a bit surreal that I find myself typing a farewell.
I would like to thank all the current and former staff of Final Bastion who made my time here an integral part of who I am. A big shout-out to all the current staff including: Dawny whose leadership saw us through a major transition and made the site bigger and better than ever before. Charlie, my partner in crime and someone who I can trust to do the math. Cody and Matthew for putting up with my constant typos and less than aesthetic chunks of text. Patrick and Sierra- the strategic geniuses of the house without whom many of our guides simply would not be possible. Termangent, who I’m fairly sure is Batman. James Earthwalker and Immortal Slayer- my fellow lore aficionados. Jigglypuff for always making me laugh and Jeremy and Ravino for when I need well-thought through analysis of different systems. Logan has helped keep my passion for Pirate101 alive with his passion for the game and I’ve enjoyed NinjaPikmin’s Pirate PvP insights. Finally, I know I’m leaving Final Bastion in good hands with Blaze, Stormbreaker, Tor and Nightwraith and I look forward to seeing them take Final Bastion to new heights.
Through the Spiral Door?
Not to worry though, I’m not leaving the Spiral scene. In fact, my new role has me working backstage! I am incredibly grateful to be able to announce that I have accepted a position at Kingsisle/Gamigo as a Systems Design Intern. I’ll be working closely with Leah, Kayly, Ratbeard, Mattnetic and the rest of the team as Wizard101 continues its revamp. There are a ton of exciting possibilities in the future, and I look forward to playing an active role in the game’s future.
I’ll see you around the Spiral!
