Qho's Fan Faire Adventures!

In an original story by ZAM's own Cyliena, Qho goes on a wild adventure at the 2011 SOE Fan Faire in Las Vegas.

Qho Augren, the perennial swimmer of the Village of Shin, is well-known among the many who have had the misfortune of crossing his path. He has nagged us time and time again to bring him back a multitude of harvests whenever we returned to him. The most recent Gathering Obsession quest had a unique twist however: Qho became a pet that follows us around!

I'm sure many people had fun jumping off of cliffs or battled the nastiest of beasts with him in tow, but I saw the opportunity to teach Qho more about harvesting... and the world beyond. Qho has now visited a wide variety of places with me, posed for many pictures and even provided a point of amusement as unsuspecting players on my server have hailed my Qho pet over and over, likely wondering why he didn't give them a quest.

I've had Qho as a pet since March and have taken him out for several unique adventures since that time. This time around I created a new twist, taking Qho out for a spin and, after careful printing and trimming, took his "real-life persona" with me to the 2011 SOE Las Vegas Fan Faire.

Hi Everyone!!!

It's me, Qho Augren again. Last time Cyliena let me write the closing of our adventures and I did such an awesomely cool job that I get to write again, yay!!

Early last month Cyliena took a good look at me and said, "Qho, we need to get you out of Norrath." I figured she had built a teleporter to take me to Drinal, but then she said "This won't hurt... too much!" and the next thing I knew, I felt so... squished! I saw these huge silver things flashing around my body and a short time later I came face-to-face with Cyliena's "real-life" self.

She told me to not worry about the TSA, and I still don't know what that is but it sounds scary, and then tucked me away in a case and shoved that into a bag. Hours later I was removed and looked around for the first time at Las Vegas, Nevada.

This exotic place had palm trees and was very hot. We were in a big room in something called a "hotel" which seemed like hundreds of Irontoe Inns stacked on top of each other! Shortly after, another Norrath person called Calthine came in and I was taken on a grand tour, to see the real people I've "nagged" in Norrath.

It was a fun and crazy few days and I got to meet lots of cool people who I'm told must really love me to keep me on the face of Norrath! Here's my story which Cyliena insists on narrating because I still tend to write "running-on sentences" which still sound silly and I don't think I do that because I'm getting so much better and....

Qho was the Fan Faire VIP! He was at every party, was on a first-name basis with every SOE employee, and was seen all over Vegas! I'm pretty sure he was up all night at the Bally's casino, too. Smiley: smile
Too Cute!

I thought he was actually a clay model until he was tucked into bed.

That's a good idea, though he would've been more unwieldy to tote around then. :) I printed out as big of a picture of him as I could on my photo printer and cut him out.

My original printout I had even cut out a cardboard-sized Qho for a backing but a super glue disaster ruined that one (and part of a coaster). *blush*

The incarnation I took with me was just a simple picture printout as I didn't have the time for a second attempt at the cardboard backing. He's chilling on my desk now! ;)
