#lotro Ten of my favourite places in Lord of the Rings

These are all places I find I leave my characters when I log out or find excuses to travel to…  I’m just going to let the pictures speak for themselves.   I’ve left out so many places which I absolutely love so I think I might do another one of these!        …

craft the world

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned Craft the World on my blog before, but it’s one I play when I just fancy getting away from it all.  I really enjoy the mix of exploration, combat, building and defence. I’ve been working my way through the Campaign which leads you through four biome types (forest, ice,…

#eso Ebonheart Pact

It was fun to revisit the Skyrim areas and compare notes and I really love Stormhold in Shadowfen.

#eso #lotro Dailies and Events

School holidays are just bad for blogging, at least for me.  All normal routine goes out the window and things just get pushed aside and then I have to remember and push myself to write something.  It’s all good though, we had a lovely Easter hols with some very nice days out. I did manage…

#eso Sunset & Dolmen

Follow my blog with Bloglovin I caught the sun setting at the same time a dolmen was happening – quite pretty

Ars Magica ~ a beginning

I’ve finally had my first experience of playing a pen and paper RPG!  I did try to join the D&D soc at Uni but in retrospect I think he must have thought I was taking the mick (the guy pretty much refused to speak to me).  The strange thing is if I had joined, I…
