Perceptor Daltieri…exposed.

Posted by revenants on November 27, 2007

Sitting down to play a session at the weekend, I logged in and immediately got shouts over Vent and in game from some of my regular friends (in this case Daltieri<<RL Buddy and Emarald<<the Wife).  Within 15 minutes we were off and away on a Valdoons run then off to Kylong Plains to catch up some alts with the quest lines.  As I was sitting on the boat to Kylong, it dawned on me how lucky I am to have a set group of friends who are pretty much all online at the same time, and always up for a group thang. (Really??- Ed) 

I actually realised how much I take our hunting groups for granted and how because of them I have very little down time where I find myself just standing around looking at the scenery.  Now I know I mention them on Revenants, but apart from the odd mention or joke at their expense I realised not many of my readers have much of an idea who they are.  So this is it…a new ‘add’ to the webby…an in game expose on my regular hunting partners.  I am going to try and get at least one a week done before I run out of friends (be this week and next then – Ed). 

Today it’s Daltieri, 73rd Conjurer Extraordinaire. 

Our intrepid reporter headed out to Kylong Plains to grab a few minutes of his time…over to Shadowraethe.. 

Daltieri

Daltieri. “Want ketchup with that burger?”

Sitting in the main square in icy Terens Grasp, and before long Daltieri approached. A medium sized  Human, his swagger as he walked spoke of a man of confidence. As he joined me, his warm smile and a wink eased my first impression of an over confident peacock. He joined me for a drink and sipping at our Halasian Wines we sit, quiet for a while, enjoying the peace (strangely enough though we both commented on how we did not so much enjoy the smell of Rhino).  Daltieri is a calm figure and it surprised me how easy he is to be around. Even in the silence the confidence and relaxed aura was effortlessly absorbed from Daltieri.. 

A flamboyant character and good looks make it easy to believe that Daltieri is indeed an interesting personality.  Comfortable in his surroundings, his relaxed demeanour belie the power behind the man with the warm smile and wink.  One would not think such an approachable and easy going person could wield such devastating magicks.  Commenting on the group he usually hunts and quests with, he showed his respect for the team; 

“We always stick together. Totally focused, one hundred percent of the time. That’s us alright!” 

I thought the group dynamic to be an interesting one so I pushed the point. Asking Dal if he had any particular favourite in the group, and who was most integral to the group.. 

“I’m not sure there is a clear cut leader. We all chip in and do our best to cause complete mayhem, er..smooth sailing” 

It seems to me that particular group works without even trying and it’s always nice to hear of a group of individuals grouping with no power play influencing the politics of the group. Thinking to get things a little more personal, he was asked how he saw himself. 

“I’m a Magician, a wondrous one at that. I sometimes do clubs, but mainly dish out the mighty powerful spells.  I mainly grill and chill things.  I go down a storm at barbeques. I’m great there…char the meat…cool the drinks.  Out in the field…well. Then I can really show off, and with the rest of my illustrious friends, I just know we can…oh hang on.. the pot of water is boiling” 

So I wanted to get a few impressions from him of how he saw the new continent discovered recently.. 

“Yeah, it’s good. There was some ever so friendly guides at the docks when I first arrived who took me in and showed me the parties, err ropes..and I must say…This new land that we have discovered under the auspices of the Queen..it’s magnificent. We had a mixed reception of the locals I guess. At first it was all smiles and can you help us with this and that, then I came up here to Terens and the jumped up lot wouldn’t give me the time of day until I had done a load of running round for them…and the Iksar around here *mutter mutter*.  Usually though, a good word put in here, a favour there and the locals will come around.”

Daltieri was turning out to be a most interesting person and I really did enjoy his company, which surprised me considering his roots in Qeynos.  I thought I would take a look at his origins, try to get a window into his history and past.. 

“Well, it all started when I was born. And it will probably end when I die. Which I don’t seem to do like EVER! It’s great! Anyhow, is this one of those tabloid interviews? Are you with the Nettleville Enquirer? Look I didn’t know the girls age. Err *blush*…next question”. 

I thought this was a good time to leave Daltieri, as it most certainly seemed a madness was soon to overtake him and I certainly didn’t want to be around when that happened.   

A huge thank you to Daltieri for your time and this ‘special’ insight into ‘The man who is Daltieri…wondrous Magician, and BBQ host extraordinaire.
