From Zero to HERO: The Legend of Jailac & PSI HERO

Updated: May 18

The story of Jailac begins in 2006 for old fans of the original Hero. First, let's start with this name, Jailac, which means “Victory in Light & Dark.” Of course, back in the day, I had no idea what I was doing by picking that name. I thought it sounded cool. After all, it was a variant of my name, Jedaiah (meaning “Hand of Creation; Hand of God; Invoker of Creation”), except in a feminine form. The original Jailac wasn't made to be average. The game HERO is all about being heroic, and PSI Hero is no different when it comes to the original principles of the game.


The distinction between PSI Hero and other similar Hero games lies in the fact that our staff, led by Jedi Reach, has unanimously agreed to purge our game of all its corrosive elements and corruption. Wuxia is an exceptional genre, and witnessing its emergence as a fan of martial arts was truly remarkable during its heyday. Even now, it's still quite amazing because of what we've created with PSI Hero. We created more than just a server; we created a multinational family from across the world on virtually every major continent imaginable.


But we'll come back to that later.


Let's continue with the original Jailac and the struggles I endured as this character.

Like many others, the original Jailac started with practically nothing but my smarts and ability to figure mathematical equations. I made several mistakes with builds, even at one point giving way to the STR/DEX/INT combination, which, while not entirely terrible, wasn't the real combination back in the day, which was all about stacking INT—assuming you had enough gear and donation power to do so. Well, I was a heavy donor. Not just in the original Hero but even in the server that was once known as Void, which no longer exists and doesn't even have a trace.


However, as Jailac, I never gave up. I may have made mistakes and committed immoral acts, as that was the thing about these games—immorality wherever you could get it because nobody knew who you were online. Yet, it was precisely because of my mistakes and errors in The Original Hero that I learned to become a better person and to grow my moral compass. I learned to stop cheating, to stop exploiting, to stop lying, to stop the stupid politics, and to stop stealing. And that was only a portion of the story, as the entire experience provided me with valuable lessons that I can utilize to both instruct and assist others, as well as the opportunity to access a Hero game that has been thoroughly cleaned and cleared of any potential corruption.


Mistakes and errors are just setbacks to make us better people, and we can use games as learning tools to do so. There is a notion that the mere fact that it is an online game implies that it holds no significance, and that anything and everything is permissible. People abuse anonymity online for several reasons, which can be a blog post in its own right. Nevertheless, the original Jailac succeeded to the top of her tier at her time because I never gave up. I had a clear, set goal in mind, and that was to be the best of the best. Average and even second place were not acceptable. Fake humility simply would not do. And yes, it's possible to be the best at your craft and be modest. One simply has to have courage and confidence in themselves, even if you're not telling anyone else. Also, respect others. There are other heroes out there with great power. Learn from them, even if they beat you a couple of times.


Instead of bringing them down and slandering other heroes, we should be helping each other up. When Jailac incarnated on Void, I had already decided to act upon several of these valuable life lessons. Whereas my old friend, CJ, had went a bit 'heel'—I went 'babyface' if you understand the wrestler terms. Of course, it's a player's job to find advantages in the game, so long as they aren't so gamebreaking that it affects others in drastically negative ways. So, like any other Hero on Void, I strove to be the best I can be and indeed, for some time, I achieved it once I hit 230 by accident on Void, later reverting to 205 because the system on Void was so flawed that leveling up was a pain.


So what happens next after you, as a player, achieved your goal? Do you become the best of the best? Relatively speaking, of course, because games, like life, always keep moving and, thus, always keep evolving. The next step for me was to create a better Hero. The next step in my evolution was to move from player to developer. I had moved from zero to Hero, but I had no intention of quitting on HERO because the lessons I learned changed my life for the better, and I was prepared to continue bringing this light and joy to others for decades to come. That is when the PSI Hero project began.


Together with my brother from another mother—Ekaterina—we had gone through many troubles, including incompetent developers, power-hungry event hosts (not Karl though, he's THE BEST, much love to him), black market trades, exploiters, and many other cheaters, dirt, slime, and literally the worst and best of the Hero community. We arrived at the best GM we've had through Mangaia, along with other developers such as Mini who have all served their purpose, along with other unnamed staff who prefer their names remain hidden. We had to prove ourselves. I had to prove myself. Here I came up with this idea of a “pure, non-corrupt Hero,” which seemed like a joke to most people. I had to prove myself to ePeceTEK, who ended up becoming one of my greatest allies and friends to this day.


So, what happened to Jailac? What was the evolution of this character?


Well, a bit of play on words, but Jailac really did evolve into digital godhood, so to speak, because from zero to HERO, then HERO to ADMINISTRATOR, then ADMIN to OWNER. Of course, as the Owner of PSI Hero, I have complete power over everything and its direction. Regardless of whether people like to hear this or not, you need a leader, and a leader needs good staff to succeed long-term. That is the strength of PSI Hero, which is now undergoing an expansion, and we certainly hope you guys will help us by contributing through donations. There's going to be another post on that later this week.


Now, what's the lesson of this story? What did I learn through Jailac, and what can you learn? Simply put, NEVER GIVE UP. And as cliché as this sounds, never give up on love. Jailac was always Sword Female for a reason. I projected my love onto the character, and that gave me the fuel to push that extra mile for her to become the best she can be. So, to all of you out there striving to be heroes, this blog is for you. Being a true hero is not about wearing a cape or being the strongest in the game, as nice as that may be. It's about the virtues and values of being an upright, powerful, wise, and loving human being who is capable of greatness and tenderness simultaneously. That being said, this is what PSI Hero is based around. Be the best Hero you can be. Literally.

The journey of Jailac from a struggling character in 2006 to the embodiment of victory in PSI HERO is truly inspiring. Jedi Reach and the team have transformed the game into a community of heroes, emphasizing integrity and growth. The lessons of perseverance, morality, and mutual respect that Jailac's story imparts are invaluable. PSI HERO isn't just a game; it's a testament to overcoming challenges and evolving into better individuals. Let's support this incredible expansion and continue building a legacy of true heroes together! #FromZeroToHero #SupportPSIHERO Karenwithastick

Reading this and thinking back at old hero and the nostalgia was a fresh thought. 'Never give up' the post is all about his and it can be used for anyone in life. Push for what you want to achieve and always fights for it. If you get knocked down keep going you will always get to where you want. - IAmWeak
