Hey guys! For quite some time, I’ve been thinking about this subject… Technology isn’t always reliable, and there have been times where we’ve been locked out of sites, lost contact with people because we had no other way to reach them. So, how do we prevent this from happening to us? Well, we can go analog!
My idea is we send letters to each other. I think this could almost be a magiqal experience as well as practical. There’s just something different about sending physical mail to someone, crafting something unique for someone to find in their mailbox. Not only are we strengthening the strategies of the mountaineers, but we’re growing our bonds, and maybe doing a bit of magiq! How awesome is that?
What is this?
Pen pals are pretty much exactly that! They are two people who send each other letters in the mail, getting to know each other in an analog way! In recent years, pen palling has become something of an art form, where people use drawings, collage, and paper craft to make beautiful envelopes and letters. However, at its core, pen pals are just two people who write letters to each other, and it’s up to you how simple or complex you want that experience to be!
How do you participate?
So, the main thing is to post in this thread saying you want to participate! Then either you can PM someone else in the thread or wait for someone to PM you, and exchange contact info.
In addition to posting that you’re interested, I would also suggest telling a little bit about yourself? Things like:
- What are your hobbies?
- What music do you enjoy?
- What are your favorite TV shows and movies?
- Do you have other interests?
- What is a fun fact about you?
- What is your favorite thing about the MAGIQ-verse?
What are some examples of things to send?
Here are some examples of things you can send (in addition to a letter of course! )
- Washi tape samples
- Travelers notebook inserts
- Tea packets

- Friendship bracelets
What are some examples of other people’s pen pal adventures?
Here are a list of people who blog about their pen pal adventures:

So, with that out of the way, post below if you wanna be pen pals with a Mountie!
