This month I will be interviewing Noobair

and Moral Truth welcome to the Casting Couch!

 

 

Hello, Noobair or the "Champion" himself

 

Code 002: What is your least favorite skill to train?

 

Noobair: Farming hate teleporting around the game  to plant seeds

 

 

Code 002: What skill do you enjoy most that you can't really get tired of?

 

Noobair: Fishing since you need food for alot of things in the game and it was my first 99 in Rs loved training it when i was young

 

 

Code 002: Do you aim to be the very first EIM to Max XP? Cause that would be cool asf.

 

Noobair: Trying to idk if im gonna reach it but trying!!

 

 

Code 002: Which pet out of all of the pets is your favorite?

 

Noobair: Giant mole since its cute and small !!!

 

 

Code 002: I've heard of this Heron and Rock Golem collection. What is the army looking like? Should we be ready for war?

 

Noobair: Army is looking good, Golems have a few more soldiers but im sure the herons will put up a good fight against em!

 

 

 

Hello, Moral Truth "The Vegan"

 

Code 002: So what is your favorite vegan meal to eat?

 

Moral Truth: It would have to be none other than vegan mac and cheese. There’s various ways to make the sauce, one way being to soak raw cashews into some water then add them into a blender with a few other ingredients. If you’re allergic, then you can make some sweet potato purée for the sauce instead. Plenty of other cheese alternatives to make some good vegan mac. It’s a pretty versatile dish; it’s also sold in some Whole Foods stores.

 

 

Code 002: How long have you been vegan and what made you decide to go vegan to begin with?

 

Moral Truth: I have been vegan since late October of 2017. I was actually introduced to veganism by my sister. She gave me a basic overview of it, then I’ve done my own research from there. I learned about the different alternatives for foods I used to eat as a non-vegan, foods/ingredients to avoid, and how to get enough vitamins and minerals in my diet. Since then, going vegan made me more conscious of what I’m eating and where my food comes from.

 

 

Code 002: If given the choice between a perfect steak or a perfect plank salmon which would you choose?

 

Moral Truth: I don’t understand why this is a question. Next.

 

Code 002: KPvlkmc.png

 

 

Code 002: If given the option to travel anywhere in the world where would you go and why?

 

Moral Truth: Hm... this is a tough one. There’s various places I’d like to go. Canada, UK, Australia, Spain, just to name a few. Traveling isn’t really a priority for me at this time, but it will be something I’ll eventually do after finishing university. No particular reason why these places. Just some places I’d like to explore right off the top of my head.

 

 

Code 002: What's your favorite activity to do within Alora?

 

Moral Truth: Besides committing to my duties as a server moderator, I enjoy doing Konar’s slayer tasks on my GIM. It’s fun doing duo slayer with one of my teammates with hopes of at least one of us getting a Konar drop. Resources from those tasks help out my team greatly. Shoutout to the folks on #DreamTeam, keep up the great work.

 

 

Code 002: If given a choice out of any car/truck/SUV in the world what would you pick?

 

Moral Truth: Anything that is functional and affordable, really. I’m used to taking buses and trains daily to go to my destinations. Going to university takes a couple of hours, going to my internship takes 1.5 hours, and going to work takes about 20 minutes. And that’s just one-way.
 

Code 002: If you could insert yourself into any universe movie/game which would you want to go to and why?

 

Moral Truth: I’d like to be in the world of the game, Astroneer. If you folks are not familiar with the game, basically you play as an astronaut who crash lands on a planet, and you collect resources and use them to build your base and eventually travel to other planets. I love the different themes each planet has, and how their environments look when the time of day changes. I’m a fan of games where I can just do whatever I want and explore my surroundings. There doesn’t have to be an end-game if you choose not to.

 

Requested:

Code 002: How does it make you feel that you take the food a cow would eat straight out from under it?
Have you ever had to fight over a grass pile before? If so how did that end?

 

Moral Truth: At this point, I’m Alora’s mowing service. Your grass is my grass, and I need it to survive. Never been a case where I had to fight with another vegan for my grass.

Interesting read Code 002, thank you for this. Also very well done on the construction and lay out of this topic. I'm very fond of the new information that also been added to this Newspaper Article, it was an intriguing read that's for sure.

 

Thanks for the gfx work Blue Jay, & thanks to Moral Truth / Noobair for the entertaining interview, already looking forward to March's newspaper Article. :)

That couch looks very familiar, one day Oral Truth will recognise that couch too and when he does he'll be Roboman B).

 

Anyway, splendid job with the newspaper Alex, <3.

I really like the format of this month's Newspaper, especially adding the "What's Happening" section. Crazy to think zero HCIM since King were comped and now we have three.

Ty @Moral Truth for the recipe, and best of luck @Noobair if you decide to go for 4.6.

Thanks @Code 002 for putting this together.

I dote the new "What's Happening" category! I enjoyed reading the interviews as always, although I would have liked to have seen more between yourself and Noobair. I'm very glad to see that interviews are finally being done between community members now instead of just members of staff. Splendid job, Code 002, I would like to see more additions from you in future.
