#ESO ~Exorcised Coven Cottage

I worked on this cottage over the summer and wanted to transform it from the gloomy, unloved original appearance for my Necromancer. It still rains and has gloomy weather but I think it feels a lot more cheerful and cosy. I’m particularly pleased with the addition of a tucked away banking and merchant room, the…

#eso Necromancer Outfit

I wasn’t sure which way to go for an outfit for this character. I mean, she is a necromancer so the temptation is to go with one of the skull type outfits but I don’t think of her of as an evil necromancer as such. More that, she’s middle aged, she has a stupidly long…

ESO Tracker

I’ve made a Google Sheets tracker for my characters – it includes Crafting level & research, Main quest completion, World & Guild skill lines, Alliance zones , Chapters and DLC (delves, quests, skyshards etc). I haven’t included group dungeons or trials or pvp. Feel free to make a copy for your own use 🙂

Still Social Distancing #2

We’re generally coping quite well with the lockdown.  I do think that we are lucky we love gaming as it has really helped, especially for the kiddo as it’s an easy way to keep in touch with his friends. I do miss seeing family and friends – although we have video calls.  It’s great seeing…

#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…

#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,…
