Covid-19 & Social Distancing #1

*edit*  After reading Contains Moderate Peril‘s post on the subject, I decided to join in and write my experience so far.* We both (me and my son) have asthma, so are in the vulnerable group – we don’t have severe asthma fortunately, but one of our triggers are colds/flu, so I took my son out…

#Skyrim – Enderal

Enderal is a massive, total conversion mod for Skyrim.  It is now available as a separate game on the Steam platform (although you will still need the original Skyrim installed, of course) which makes the installation super easy. The landscapes and architecture are beautiful and varied, occasionally you will get a jolt or deja vu…

all the usuals…

I haven’t branched out into new games this past year, I’ve stuck with the cosy and familiar. Currently playing: Black Desert Mobile – I can’t make my mind up about this.  It’s a very pretty afk grinder with enough to do to still make you feel as though you’re playing.  In a way, it’s better…

#elvenar balance

This is one of those games where you are always running short of *something*, usually space! For progression, and tournaments, you will want to be able to build your goods at roughly an even rate.  I say roughly, because although the goods might be coming in at an even rate, you may be using one…

Farewell Dimzad

I mentioned something about life throwing a curveball, it ended up being far worse than that.  Dimzad (my husband) was diagnosed with late stage cancer on the 20th December.  He had shown no symptoms until then and was only 45.  The hospital did their best but it was too advanced and he passed on the…

happy new year

well, this was going to be the year when I posted regularly (again… i know, i still believe that at some point in time i will) but life has thrown a curveball and I have no idea what the year will bring.  So i can’t promise that or even aim for it. I will be…

#lotro barrows and festivals

I keep veering between racing* to 50 and a must do all the things, completionist playthrough on my main on Ithil (I switched servers in the end as that’s where my Kin ended up).  I’m currently trying out a compromise of getting all quest / exploration deeds done and slayer deeds at least the first…

#lotro another lore-master

I’m still slightly obsessed with the legendary servers – I think it’s down to the general business of the areas, knowing that there is a very reachable cap on play and the infectious enthusiasm of the players.  I’ve also got my characters ‘right’ this time.  Names, origins, races, crafting and suchlike.  At times, I wonder…

#lotro Dwarven Realms

Blue Mountains:  known as Ered Luin in Sindarin.  Mines of Moria – Moria is Sindarin for Black Abyss.  Also known as Khazad-dûm in Khuzdul (meaning Dwarves’ Delvings/Mansions) and Dwarrowdelf (archaic Westron for Dwarf Delving) The dwarves fled Moria after awakening the Balrog and settled in the Grey Mountains, where, due to the dragons gaining strength,…
