Ready Up Live Spotlight: Raptor

For the month of May, the staff had decided that one community member stood out for his contributions and continued support. He’s a long-time member for nearly five years and well-known to many, active on the Discord and always eager to join a conversation, please join us in congratulating Raptor as RUL Spotlight for May!

An interview was made, and the rest is history.

How did you first discover RUL?

Well, once upon a time I ran a Facebook page with Liz, and through that, we met and became friends with Anthrax, who at the time was also running a page and a part of the community. One time I was talking to him and he linked me an episode of Best Minecraft Seeds that he took part in, (When’s the next episode, GrenSkills?), and I followed it from there to the site! That was almost 5 years ago now. Time flies!

What got you into gaming?

I’ve played games since before I can remember, as my brothers also played games from a very young age. I don’t really remember the first game I played but I think it may have been Sonic the Hedgehog. So I’ve been hooked from the very beginning!

If you had to recruit two people from history, real or not, to help you kill a dragon, who would you pick?

Hmm, Robin Hood, in case said dragon has a handy dandy weak spot ala Smaug, and Douglas MacArthur, cause he commanded a ton of other people and I’m a copout. 😀 It’s all about them technicalities!

If you could live in any video game universe, what would it be and why?

Technically a movie universe, but also a book and video game universe, I’m gonna say Star Wars. Mostly because A, it would be awesome. B, there’s a chance of being a Jedi. C, It would be awesome.

Being a strong and well known member of the community, what kinds of things would you like to see from us or the community?

More gamenights! Haha. Seriously, you guys are all amazing and I wouldn’t change a thing. <3

If you could have any superpower, what would it be? What would you use it for?

Probably super speed. I’d use it for everything and anything! I could get so much done!

who’s your favorite fictional character?

Superman! The GOAT. 😀

If you were a tree, what would be carved in your trunk?


If you had to pick one genre of game to play for the rest of your life, which one would it be?
RPG, it probably has the most varied subgenres in it and I always enjoy them!

We hope this Q&A can help you get to know the (mostly) harmless lovable dino that we hold near and dear to our hearts (and maybe help you avoid getting eaten, too 😉 ). Once again, congratulations to Raptor for being an outstanding member of Ready Up Live!
