New Intern Alert!

Thursday, April 18, 2013

I'm Cassidy Werner, one of the new interns at Paizo. I'd like to say that I, along with my counterpart Jay, am one of the new rulers of Internistan. Unfortunately, our office has been relocated away from the warehouse and we have yet to find the Internistan flag.

I graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in International Studies, dreaming that I would one day become a diplomat. However, it was gently pointed out to me that I do not have the temperament for diplomacy. Since I usually play gold draconic bloodline sorceresses and love nothing more than casting indiscriminate fireballs, I was forced to agree.

Previously, I've worked as a horseback riding teacher, stagehand, carnie, barista, and, mostly recently, a college admissions official. After growing weary of crushing the dreams of starry-eyed high school students for a living, I did some soul-searching and decided to pursue my true passion: writing. The folks at Paizo have kindly taken me in to teach me the publishing business and I couldn't be more excited.

In my spare time, I enjoy archery, lock picking, futilely attempting to train my lion-headed bunny Aslan, and- of course- gaming. My fiancé and I currently play in two Pathfinder campaigns and are maxing out our Borderlands II characters.

For Internistan!


Welcome Cassidy & Aslan!

I think Aslan needs to get his own introductory post.

As the owner of a checkered giant... I think Paizo needs more rabbits. :)

Archery and picking locks... What a gal!

Multi-classers...*shakes head*

Well, welcome and good luck in your shiny new career!


I think I like this kid.

As the owner of two lion-mane bunnies (Vixen and Chara) I will agree attempts to train them can be tiresome.

At first I was thrilled that Paizo was going to get its first bunny intern, but was equally happy when I read about Cassidy. Welcome aboard and good luck!

Watch out for the giant, metal scorpions ;-)

Clearly there should be a couple rabbit icons. Welcome, new intern! Make sure you get cookies from Liz! =D


Welcome!

Make sure you check the ceiling above your workspace at regular intervals...

More meat for the Intern Grinder! Mwaa haa haa!


Hm, last time I saw the flag, it was with the box of intern stuff (along with an introductory note and a list of what needs to go into the rules database) sitting on the warehouse desk...so really there's no telling. Ask Will maybe? Anyhow, congrats on joining the crew :)

Welcome Cassidy!

I thought that Paizo keeps all their... Interns. No one leaves. Unchanged.

I think that you wanted to say that Interns are turned to raptors for dinner...

Got any tips? :) So far, all attempts have resulted in frustration for me, and confusion and an overabundance of raisins for Aslan.

Thank you! What for? My current list of things to watch out for consists of cave raptors, Pitax, and Cosmo.


Thank you for the warm welcome, everyone!


Welcome.

Pick any good locks lately?


A word of warning. Don't trust Savannah - she was intern like you but she did something... None one knows what... That made the Powers That Be (of Paizo) let her live. She even escaped warehouse raptors... No interns ever escape warehouse raptors. Not since raptors learned how to open doors, at least.

Oh, and don't pick locks on the doors that appear in the depths of the warehouse from time to time. There are things beyond, things which made raptors scared...

That's not entirely correct. Patrick was an intern that fought through the threats and challenges to become a developer. Not all interns fall to the cave raptors or other related dangers.

Patrick is clearly a Veiled Master.

All interns are Veiled Masters. In fact, they are just the same one and keep changing their appearance.

The Force is strong with this one. :-)

Jerome also survived, although it was by signing up for contract work for the warehouse cave raptors..

...hmmm maybe "survived" isn't such a good term...

Oh, I'm sure you'll be fine. Feel free to let that guard down.

NOPE!!

The Exchange

I believe the only known way to tame a vicious rabbit with big gnashy teeth is to use a holy hand grenade. That may work, but people have soiled their armour in the attempt.

Best of luck.


I never saw any raptors, but that was before internistan was created for it's brief existence in the warehouse. . . There will be no planting of a flag on a desk in the office were you are allowed to sit. Unless you wish to wage war upon Project Management and Licensing simultaneously! You will be defeated! There is no doubt.

Are they in the walls? I need you to be brave, Adam. Can you do that?
