He-he-here we go! He’s finally here! To write stuff for you! If you check this page! You can join us too! Put your hands together! I want you to clap! As he’s introduced.. with this cool rap! Huh! Indi! INDIGO! Indi! Indigo is here!
One Hell of A Security Guy
Points for you if you got what that intro is based on! Clearly I am in a cheerful mood today and that is with good reason! I get to announce that my long time friend now going by the name of Indigo has joined the fray! I have known him for longer than I blog and as per today he will be on the fictional Payroll of the fictional Paradise, receiving fictional income for his fictional position as my head of security! I think you know what his task is! That’s right he is trying to save you from fictional treats.. like pickpockets and pirates. He will do this by creating some amazing characters in his original stories that will walk around on Paradise keeping you safe.. but he is also quite skilled in playing some video games and telling you about them! It will keep you distracted but also that nasty pickpocket! How neat huh! If I put up to much party lights, he is also skilled enough in the electrical work so that we don’t all die in a blaze of fire and colourful glass so but yeah mostly he is just here to write his own things. I bet he can tell you amazing tales set in the Fallout or Warhammer 40K Universe.
Indigo is a fresh face on WordPress, with their only experience so far leaving likes and a few comments! So his content style will be a surprise to us all! We can expect some game reviews and fan fiction from him. I suspect we will mostly see character driven stories about warriors wielding swords and armors. With an edgy grimdark twist. He’s probably also the guy who will keep me in check! “Pinkie have you read that comment yet?” ‘Don’t forget to reply to that person who @dded you on Twitter” If you are angry and mean.. I will also send him after you! If you think I am ignoring you.. you can send him after me! Perfect balance.
He is a hard working confidant sort of speak who has his own.
I know for sure he is combining the world of my tabletop and videogames to tell you an unique “what if story” Yet he also talked about not one but two game reviews! He mostly plays shooting games.. but also the deeper rpgs and Soulsbornes! Sometimes even stuff in between… as long as he gets to kill. I made him play Ducktales though! For breakfast he rips and tears into Deathclaws and in the afternoon he does scientific research how much fatboy mini nukes it takes to kill a demon. His knowledge of weaponry is also impressive so if you like to discuss Alucard’s guns.. our security officer will be here for you! You can recognise him by his unique look. Donning his Indigo outfit with pink belts! Because when we play or work together, he always does something with pink! Such a good guy! That coat is a tad edgy though!
How I met Indigo
To introduce you a bit more to this man I shall tell you the story of how we met. In fact I have talked about some elements he brings to the table. I met Indigo trough Star Wars roleplay.. like four or so years ago. I was playing a Sith woman named Sy’ra who felt like friendship is magic and the path to Power in the Sith.. starting out as a rival for a Zabraki love, soon Sy’ra won over his character Lelianne because of her sly and cunning ways. Which later blossomed into a nice and warm friendship between the two characters. My character formed a house of her own which resulted in a private Skype-group for friends and family members. Indigo was in that chat! As time passed we bonded and enjoyed playing a lot. His characters a Mandalorian clan leader named Kraleth became my security officer and his daughter Lelianne, became Sy’ra bodyguard.. and they even had a short romance.. but Lelianne saw herself to much as a tool. Living only for Sy’ra. My Sith taught Lelianne to love herself for those who can’t love themselves and see themselves as items only can never be truly loved either. It was a lesson Indigo also had to learn still. Indigo is a bit of an anime edgelord. The type that will sacrifice themselves to safe you.. even if the treat is a flew splashes of rain… because dying for someone is cool! This mentality brought Indigo in trouble a few times as a roleplayer. This selfless trait is a great thing for a security officer to have though! And he has experience with the job! Nothing will phase him anymore!
Indigo is a fair bit younger than me as well.It’s not like I could be his mom (there is only one person in my online tabletop, which by the way is not the D&D that stopped, that’s young enough to be my son). He might be able to tell me what G-Fuel is.. even though I never hear him talk about it.. and those who drink?! (it’s a drink right?) usually talk about it so I am unsure. I bet he would love the Vinland Saga anime as he really likes dark and Military themes in stories. So I think that will tell you a bit what type of stories we can expect. I always tease him for the sheer amounts of edge he has in him. His coffee cups have bullets and skulls on them and he listens to so much metal that if you have a magnet on you it will stick to his ears… if there aren’t people with lots of piercings around or a living suit of armor of course. He’s the type of guy who drinks their coffee black just because it looks cooler in front of the others, but that also means there is more cream and sugar left for me!
For little over a year now I have made a tabletop game on mondays, that is basically an anime tabletop.. people can create their character and from all known media they have to fight against treats from other worlds.. like Hol Horse from Jojo’s Bizarre Adventures or Dracula from the Castlevania games but also 4 world leaders and their Eldritch Horseman.. they employ to summon a big Eldritch evil upon this world. During their journey the group can encounter characters from all across anime. For example they are working with Krul Tepes from Owari no Seraph and they have a rivalry with Perona from One Piece.. who works for Elon Musk to use her Horro Horro fruit to change the little Eldritch baby the has into a ultimate weapon to stop the greater evil.. at the cost of a few cities. Indigo here plays the seventh courier from Fallout New Vegas.. a fictional character that was supposed to be there as well..but ended up Isekaid..into our world. As this game requires very much communication to build your character (as you can literally build whatever you want) Indigo and I started to talk more and more and our friendship became tighter.
When he asked to stream a few games in our Discord group I noticed how he would lack the platform there to show the games he is interested in. Regardless how much I love Indigo.. Warhammer stuff is completely wasted on me and the one that is interested.. is only so when it’s convenient to them! So that’s why I thought! Maybe writing in a place like mine could let him tell those stories to a bit wider of an audience. Also based on some follower names I score surprisingly well with those with edgy nicknames… so maybe you will like his style as well. His different palette compared to mine when it comes to stories and games can make us cover such a wide arrangement of stuff. I feel he can compliment me very well! I will still be the best Pinkie.. but Indigo will provide the contrast to make my pink look even brighter. Indigo hasn’t blogged before and is fairly new to WordPress so I want you all to give him a warm welcome! To Indigo, you will have to socialise a bit.. so use the WordPress reader to find yourself some Warhammer, or Soulsborne blogs, take a peek at the people welcoming you and be an awesome tomodachi for the amazing people in the community! A security guy can be scary but make sure to let them know you are secretly just a big cuddly bear .
Even More STAFF to come?!
I could tell you plenty of stories about Indigo but instead I rather direct you to his Twitter, and ask you to wait and see what their posts will bring. Indigo is from Finland so like me he is a non native English speaker. I assume that means like me they are schooled in UK english so expect to see his top five FAVOURITE guns in video games and not his top five FAVORITE 40k Races, but I might be wrong here! For those who think we spell Colour wrong I got good news! The third person that applied to write on this place is American! So we will be evenly distributed then. I am still looking for a Canadian and an Australian to join so I can get all English variants gathered!
If you want to write but don’t want to maintain your own blog or if my blog covers topics you can’t put on your own website feel free to apply under STAFF wanted. As long as you do not expect to be paid and as long as you respect everyone like I ask everyone to respect you things are totally going to be fine and you will always be good enough! I went through this phase myself.. where I felt like the lesser writer. Maybe I am the lesser writer to most.. but Indigo as well as Crow and Fred helped me remind me that no one writes like me.. Somewhere there is a guy.. in my case like Indigo.. who will like that style and the same goes for you! I wish for Paradise to be a platform for all of you who want to share your thoughts in a more low key way! We are a holiday resort! Ambition is for when you get back to real life! This is all about fun! So if you want to share stuff you feel you can not share elsewhere.. feel free to apply even if your not Canadian or Australian! We will make you feel welcome.. and with that please everyone leave a comment to welcome Indigo! I want him to feel right at home!
As for my own words to Indigo! There is little to say I have not said yet in our chats! I am so happy for everything you did for this blog, for me so be able to offer you this platform for your thoughts makes me really happy. I know we have vastly different opinions on media but that is what makes this work so much I think! I have every bit of faith in you! I have seen your voice in Roleplaying and your writing and I know this is something unique to you. With a dash of Warhammer, a Dash of Hellsing but also a healthy does of old warrior values and an appreciation of tech I am 1000% sure you will add something new to this blog! You might have to check if there are blogs around in your posse using WordPress reader but I also think quite a few people around really will be interested in your voice so never be afraid to let it shine! Be yourself.. no matter how much flack for being to edgy I give you for it! It’s all in good spirit! Friends teasing each other and all! You are a dear friend and probably my most supportive friend..at least when it comes down to this hobby! So I am super thrilled to have you! Welcome to the team! Welcome to Paradise! Also could you please look into that Yellow looking fellow. I was walking in the lobby today when I faceplante… I mean gracefully landed after tripping on a yellow bucket. He had a mob with him as well but he was just staring outside smirking at some daffodils….weird.
Indigo has no Kofi page to support yet! However if he ever does decide on doing this a banner to support him will show up on his own posts! All writers have their individual Kofi Pages, though Pinkie’s one is also used to maintain the website. Keep an eye out for ways to support Indigo and for now just make him feel welcome! Time for me to melt some more! And see you all very soon!
