Happy Erik Mona Day!
Thursday, November 8, 2007
Never before have I felt this proud to be working at Paizo.
At 4:41pm yesterday, a thread from messageboard regular Sebastian popped up on our boards declaring November 8th Erik Mona Day. Why remains a mystery (it's not even Erik's birthday!), but within hours, over a hundred and fifty people had posted to help celebrate, most of them donning Erik's signature cyclopean avatar.
That was fun enough, but then this morning Cosmo the Customer Service Guru (that's him in the glasses) came back and informed us that we had a special Mona Day delivery, courtesy of the folks in the Paizo chat room. Completely unbeknownst to us, a bunch of them had secretly banded together to send us half a dozen celebratory Mona Day pizzas. In the feasting that followed, I'm pretty sure that all of us were thinking the same thing: that we have the most amazing community any company could ever hope for. Heck, we even got The Man Himself, Erik Mona, to stop editing long enough for a photo op... and that's a true measure of love, right there.
Thank you all so much for your support. This is the greatest job in the world.
