#lotro hunter mirkwood outfit

I wanted an outfit for my Mirkwood elf for when she visits Felegoth, I wanted her to fit in and look like she belonged.  I’m not convinced I managed that but what I did manage was to basically recreate my Minstrel’s outfit… doh! anyway, I liked the shots so… Back: Cloak of the Wind-Singer (dyed…

#lotro legendary server

I was a little sceptical at first, I wasn’t sure what the point was when, theoretically, you could do the same thing on the normal servers.  I had a fear of missing out though, so I decided to roll a character and check it out.  Fortunately, I waited until this morning to do so and…

what I’m doing…

galaxies and shires

I’ve just finished Mass Effect: Andromeda and I really enjoyed it.  On the downside, there were a few too many ‘busy’ tasks which I ignored and the planets felt a bit… rushed, I suppose.  I did expect more differences in the flora and fauna between planets.  I think playing it way after launch was beneficial…

end of blaugust

I really don’t know what happened this summer, I was really looking forward to it and I just somehow missed it.  This summer has just been so busy with so much to organise – I’m completely out of routine and couldn’t make room in my head for either gaming or blaugust…  it’s hard writing about…
