Azathoth: Ever since I was younger, I loved to read, it was the one thing I found to be relaxing and fun, to lose myself to fantastical world's and exciting adventures to far off and exotic lands. And as I got older, I began to think of my own world's, my own heroes and villains, my own stories, and they all kind of swirled in my head for years, until I decided one day to write some down, out idea to paper as it were. And through many different forms from poems, to short stories, to roleplaying and the attempted start at writing a book, I tried to improve my skills and have fun with what I made.
Benno: I sorta stumbled across writing, i was in a discord server before the oasis that did roleplay in the actual discord server which was fun and i was simply inactive for a little bit so they kicked me out...jerks. However, i decided to go onto the disord server list and find something new and i found The Oasis and i easily got used to it all and seeing how it's been improved and getting more and more awesome, it really is a great sight to see!
Q: Other than writing, what is something you do as a hobby?
Azathoth: I play dungeons and dragons. I only started about two years ago but I've fallen in love with the game and have so much fun playing and running games.
Benno: I like to Box, i don't fight (not yet, perhaps i get in the ring sometime hehe), but it is a great form of exercise as you work every part of your body when it comes to boxing so you're confident and fight ready if i was to do it in the future, i get better at it every time i go and the atmosphere in the gym is amazing.
Q: Out of all the roleplay experiences you've had so far, in or out of the Oasis, which was your favorite?
Azathoth: Hard question, I've had so many and a lot of them were awesome and fun, picking just one is hard. But, if I had to, I'd say, there was a How to Train Your Dragon rp I was in, that was so much fun, and it's gotta be my favorite because I'm a sucker for the franchise and just dragons in general.
Benno: oops, i'll become a simp here and say in the oasis, it is a different world where imaginations clash and share ideas to create such great stories and i am so proud of every single person in the oasis, but if i had to pick a favourite experience...it's hard to pick, but i have to with my very first rp i did here called "Descendants of desires" as the response was insane for just my very first rp here.
Q: What's your favorite flavor and brand of potato chip?
Azathoth: Oooh, tough one, but it'd have to come down too….. Sweet Spicy Chili Doritos, Ruffles All-Dressed flavored chip, or this chip brand that I can't remember the name of with their flavor being Voodoo. Those are so close for me I can't pick a number 1
Benno: I've been a bit off from "potato chips" But i would have to go with Quavers which are prawn cocktail flavour (Ayu might know what i'm on about with them hehe).
Ayurisu: I do know what Benno's on about, but oddly enough I've only ever had cheese-flavoured Quavers.
Q: Everyone is dying to know -- who's your celebrity crush?
Azathoth: I'd have to say….. Ashley Greene.
Benno: I have both a Male who'd i'd turn G*y for and female celebrity crush so i'll say both...Tom Hardy and Scarlett Johansson (Black widow from Marvel films lol)
Q: What's something most people don’t know about you?
Azathoth: In middle school, I played saxophone in the band.
Benno: I once twisted my ankle from rushing down some stairs and missing a step, the foot is all fine now, but i can move a bone there and it doesn't hurt or anything, just a weird and random physical phenomenon i have!
Q: What is one creative goal you want to accomplish?
Azathoth: I want to one day be recognized or published for some form of my writing.
Benno: Go back into art, i did it in school and school is very demoralising in terms of things having to look as real as possible while Art is subjective and there is no right way to do art so i would love to find my passion again for art!
Q: What resolutions have you made for 2021, and how's the progress on them coming along?
Azathoth: So it's my resolution, to get healthier, to get a car, to finish my computer, and to maybe find someone. And I'm still a ways off on most of those, but, my computer is almost done at least.
Benno: Work on myself and not to think of others too much as i follow that trait from my mum on being selfless so i feel i need to do whats right for me, not in a horrible away but have self care and self love, it's not easy, but i'm optimistic on achieving what i wanna achieve!
Q: If you could instantly master any one weapon, mythical or conventional, ancient or futuristic, which weapon would you pick?
Azathoth: I would pick…. The fully powered suit/armor of Samus Aran from the Metroid series.
Benno: a futuristic blaster that fires bananas, you need a banana? i gotchu with the Banana Blaster TM
Q: Alright, and finally, do you have any words of congratulation for the other Architect of the Month that you'd like to say?
Azathoth to Benno: I'd say congrats! You've definitely earned it, with all your sieging and such, you definitely became a presence on the site these past week, so good on you, and keep up the great work!
Benno to Azathoth: You do amazing things here at The Oasis and you're such a good person to talk to and amongst others you shine with your creative talent when it comes to writing and it's great to have you here!
Click here to try this issue's crossword puzzle! This month's theme is Valentine's Day, sort of. WOTA characters that have yet to feature in a crossword will show up in this one, but the clues are sorted by gender! There are... a lot of girls in the war.
THE WAR CONTINUES!
Here's Xy with the scores! With the war turning a new chapter after Fyrox's takeover of Z-Beta, We've got a ton of news for you!
disk and ixextron of Zegnum have been taking their conquest to F-Alpha, and with little in the way to oppose them, can anyone stop this dynamic duo? A desert duel spelled the end for Enninisotera on Bromea, and delta met the same fate against ixextron on Thora. disk scored an uncontested siege on the Vaano System, and their rampage only ceased when azoth and Enninisotera managed to eliminate both of them on the planet of Contri! Activity has been quiet on F-Alpha since then.
disk has continued the assault on F-Beta, but Enninisotera seems to be adamant on defending every single time. She had a minor victory on Noavera, and is currently locked in battle with him on Pano. Both delta and Seildryss, the Crystal Terror had been sighted around Pano, but it looks like casualties have already removed two of our contenders from the battle! Stay tuned to see what happens next!
A new Architect has made a splash over on Xygill! Yau Ankouhime intends to take back the universe of Z-Beta and put it in its rightful place, but we're a little confused about how she's doing it. She's just making everybody sprout grey hairs, turning the soldiers of Fyrox from warriors to war veterans. With Fyrox occupied defending their own universes, it looks like Xygill's takeover was a success.
And what will become of Z-Alpha? So far we haven't seen any important sieges going on around there. Are Fyrox taking pity, or are they simply too overburdened with defending their three universes to spare the troops?
The overall scores across the universes are over here! F-Alpha: 3-1 to Zegnum F-Beta: 1-0 to Fyrox Z-Alpha: 0-0 Z-Beta: 1-0 to Zegnum
