This month we will be interviewing: Kaamea, Code 002, and MT.

 

Let's start off with Kaamea...

 

GIM Deathkid: What are your plans now that you're maxed XP?

Kaamea: The main goal, for now, is to get a 5th twisted bow as drop, so everyone in our team could have their own and of course passively try to obtain some cool pets.

 

GIM Deathkid: What does it feel like to be on the greatest GIM team ever to exist on Alora and does it help your dating life? (Question submitted by TenFour).

KaameaIt feels absolutely amazing and as of right now, no it hasn't helped me yet in my dating life unfortunately.

 

GIM Deathkid: MT would like to know the story behind you being the head of the Veteran team. Could you possibly give us some insight on this?

KaameaI seen someone use that title on a different RSPS, if I'm not wrong his name was Fergus. I used to play a RSPS where the veteran rank was held more superior than staff rank, so kinda ripped it off from there, but overall it is just a meme.

 

GIM Deathkid: Where does the name "Kaamea" come from?

KaameaI was looking for a new name for my Runescape account around 2012 or so. Might be confusing the year, but who cares, and I was mainly looking for a unique name and just came across the word. It honestly describes my personality well too "grisly".

 

Next up, Code 002!

 

GIM DeathkidCan you walk us through your emotions of watching Classic get the Inquisitor’s plateskirt right in front of you?

Code 002: I knew this was going to happen..... Mans RNG is absolutely fking bonkers at NM, I don't really know what I was expecting tbh. What's worse is that we were LITERALLY talking about it waiting for "that kill" to spawn.... Soon as I saw the announcement, my heart sank slightly. Idek what my drop was I just logged out, silenced Discord, Played "The Ghost of You" by My Chemical Romance, and opened up WOW. Of course after blocking Classic for a solid day. :P

 

GIM DeathkidWhat do you plan on grinding once you’re done with The Nightmare?

Code 002: Well I'm really trying to simultaneously Comp and just get the first set of Inquisitor's on an Ironman Game mode. But after NM, I'd have to say the next two options I'm thinking is either The Gauntlet or CoX. Havn't done that many CoX, recently learned how to solo and was getting the hang of it for those few days.

 

GIM DeathkidWe’ve had a lot of QoL updates recently, which one do you like best? If you could add another QoL update, what would it be?

Code 002: Honestly my most liked recent QoL would 100% have to be the entirety of Runelite. I spent a good chunk of time using it during OSRS's Twisted League. So having all of these plugins and the plethora of QoL tools makes me feel at home. Now for a QoL I would like to have added is not really a QoL? I just want

Spoiler

 

GIM DeathkidWhat are your long-term goals on Alora? Do you plan on going for max XP?

Code 002: I've always had a fancy for the collection log, so I might pursue that. I'm a man of smaller goals and will usually change my mind last minute before I start another grind.

 

Last but not least, MT...

 

GIM DeathkidWhat made you stay on the staff team for so long?

MT: I wanted to be the person that players come to when they need help with anything in the game. Also because being Head Server Support helped me be a positive role model for other server supports. I provided them the tools to excel and rise up in the staff team, and it makes me happy to see how much they have grown since joining the staff team.

 

GIM Deathkid: Do you feel like your role as a Server Support has helped your experience on Alora?

MT: I definitely feel my role as a Server Support has helped my experience on Alora. I feel that I had a positive influence in the community and that’s all I can ask for. I also learned a lot along the way, and met some awesome people.

 

GIM DeathkidWhat does your next chapter include now that you have left Alora? Do you have any plans/goals IRL? 

MT: Now that I have more free time on my hands due to finishing uni a while back, I’m looking to do videos again on my main YouTube channel. I’m not going to do content on “Moral Alora” anymore as I don’t have much interest to play the game these days. As for IRL, I hope to eventually find a better job so I can leave my retail job that I’ve had for over 5 years. Job searching during a pandemic can be quite difficult, without a doubt.

 

GIM DeathkidWhat was your favorite piece of content on Alora?

MT: Flower Poker tournaments on Fridays was pretty fun to do. Was the only way to play FP as staff, and I’ve only won one tournament once because Moe planted for my GIM lol.
