Last week’s prompt: It was the middle of the night, I knew this because I could hear the chiming of the clock whilst watching the dim light from the moon peeping through my curtains. Some people say midnight is the witching hour, the time where things hiding in the dark come out. Everything was so quiet that I could hear every sound – the whistling of the wind at the window, the rustle of the leaves on the trees, the creaking of the floor boards, footsteps. Mum and Dad must still be up. I heard the creaking of the staircase, then the landing outside my room. The landing was still dark, why had my parents not turned on the light? A shiver of fear went down my spine, as I realised, it isn’t my parents. My entire body began to shake with fear, I threw my head underneath the covers as my bedroom door opened…
SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED. Stay tuned for next week’s column to see the winner!
The People column publishes interviews with RF staff and members weekly. This week, Keemyorg was interviewed!
RNM: Hello Keemy, thank you for coming to this interview today! I’ll start us off with a simple question: how has running the Fortnite clan been for you?
KEEM: It’s been interesting, having the ability to fully customize my own schedule and tasks had definitely been nice, although it’s always still important taking troop input into account early on. When you’re laying the groundwork for an entire era to come, you don’t really want to mess it up.
RNM: It’s great that we have someone putting as much care into it as you. Fortnite is a large platform with a massive player-base, so I think it should be fine. How do you plan on expanding the clan?
KEEM: I plan on expanding the clan through recruiting in-game, fortnite is game that everyone can play, so if you can get one person to join, there’s a decent chance they’ll invite their friends as well. I need to find the best times and gamemodes to recruit in, but I’m hoping that it’ll be a somewhat simple process
RNM: Interesting, interesting. Would you say that the current path the Fortnite clan is taking at the moment is good? Is there anything that could change?
KEEM: I think that my ideal path for the clan is to eventually make it more competitive, currently as it stands it’s completely just for fun. There’s nothing wrong with that in itself, but the exposure that having a really nice team can get you in the fortnite community would be a huge benefit to the entire rebel federation.
RNM: That’s true, and is good food for thought. Is there anything you’d like to say before we end this interview?
KEEM: I’d encourage people to think about a game they enjoy playing, and think about the possibilities of that game. If the game has the potential, and you have a plan for it, go ahead and apply to make it a clan, no harm in taking a risk once in a while.
RNM: Thank you for your time and a great interview, Keemy!
That concludes the interview with Keemyorg – thanks to Brownboy for interviewing him!
