Ravenfield decided to join in the New World of eRepublik by coincidence that occurred on the forums of another browser-based game. There, with the help of the forum admins, multiple topics were published to recruit new players to new, independent Finland. As Ravenfield had been looking for something new to do, he decided to give it a try. What he got for registering in eRepublik was something he didn't expect...
As Ravenfield registered to eRepublik, he encountered some problems: of course, while being a new player in a new game, everything looked very complex and difficult. Thankfully, a clear interface of eRepublik, he was able to get the hang of everything pretty quickly. For the next 5 hours, he sat in front of his computer, reading eRepublik Wiki. Soon everything was pretty clear: the simplicity of this complex game was stunning.
Contacting the community
As it was necessary to register to forums in Finland (to get the other half of the Citizen fee), Ravenfield became in contact with the rest of the players in Finland. Thanks to helpful members of the community, he soon became familiar with how things are run in eRepublik. Also, the instruction to get on the IRC channel was of great help, as it was easier to ask questions there and get a fast answer, than waiting for the answer on forums.
As Ravenfield was asking this and that on IRC channel, subjects about having organization and own company/newspaper rise to the surface of conversation. This was relevant to what he was interested in. Ravenfield decided to get his company and newspaper, but at his level, that was still far away.
He worked for RavenGuns (owned by RavenCube), Q1 Weapon company in the USA.
His stats were:
Training for gaining strength and fighting for gaining experience has been rabid, thanks to Anvil '09, a co-op Military Exercise between Norway and Finland. Although Finland had a Q4 hospital, Ravenfield gained a fair amount of experience and in the second battle of Anvil '09 operation, he got promoted to V1 Corporal.
After that, Ravenfield resigned from his job and started to travel around the world as a mercenary.
