It's the dream of many veteran players; Becoming a Game Sage to help your fellow players and being recognized at the same time! It is all you could ask for! This dream became reality for Game Sage tenkido. After gaining a lot of knowledge about Aeriagames' Megaten he decided to apply for the job and he was lucky enough to be chosen! Being a Game Sage brings a lot of questions up from people who are not familiar with the job and the exact meaning of being a Game Sage, so I decided to ask tenkido some questions about the whole meaning of being a Game Sage.
Onrpg: Could you introduce yourself, please?
My forum name is tenkido, but I prefer my nickname Jebus. I am a Game Sage on Aeriagames' Megaten.
Onrpg: Why did you decide to become a Game Sage?
I've always liked helping people, whether it's online or in person.
Onrpg: Would you be able to tell us a bit about how you became a Megaten Gold?
All I did was apply to become one and I was chosen due to how well known I was for being helpful around the community. That doesn't mean someone with a reputable name has an advantage over someone who doesn't, but it's always good to be known so there's a trust between you and the community already there.
Onrpg: What were your expectations of the job?
I expected to gain a little more trust from the community, and I gave trust back to them, due to my title. I feel that if I'm trusted more with the title, then there's respect between them, me and Aeria.
Onrpg: Did these expectations become reality?
Of course they became a reality. I'm called upon a lot to help people with item transfers.
Onrpg: Could you tell us a bit about your daily routine in-game?
Mostly I log on in Channel 1 Shinjuku Babel, due to it having the most flow of traffic. Often times, I'm asked questions either regarding the game or about being a Megaten Gold. Once in a while I go to Home 3 and help around with the same thing I do in Shinjuku Babel. Sometimes I do a few dungeon/comp hack runs or help some people finish their Acts that are easier with a party.
Onrpg: What kind of things do you do outside of the game (ex. Forums, chat etc..) ?
I'm very active in the forums and in the Shout Box. I'm always lurking around the forums and am almost always ready to help people there. If I'm not in either the forums or the game, then I'm either busy with some school work or looking up something I may not know about the game.
Onrpg: Are there any kind of questions that you can't help people with?
Only thing I can't seem to help people with are the different class builds. I'm mainly familiar with my class (Mage) and haven't really tampered with the others. Sorry.
