7th blogoversary / 2015 recap / 10 yr MMOversary

as promised…  and possibly worst. title. ever. So, this year I played: Dragon Age Inquisition plus DLCs; started playing Guild Wars 2 with the GGG guild; played Elder Scrolls Online and Skyrim (again).  I still really enjoy all these games, even though the DA obsession has mostly passed (for now) and I’m not playing ESO…

#IntPiPoMo (21-25) elven architecture

I do like how there is a common, accepted standard for fantasy races across the RPG worlds that I’ve played.  Wood elves tend to have a more organic, grown for purpose feel, while high elves tend to use organic shapes in a stylised form.  Anyway, here are some examples 🙂 21. Ca’ial Breal, Vanguard.  Wood…

Blaugust Day 14 ~ Coastal shots

Last post before I go on holiday – posts 15 – 20 will be not be written. As it’s Friday again, I thought I’d post some more screenshots to a theme.  This time – the coast. 1. Landmark.  A very pretty misty dawn shot. 2. Vanguard: Saga of Heroes.  Shot of Tawar Galan with the…

Blaugust Day 7 ~ 7 blue screenshots

I totally nicked the idea from Rav’s post here (at her suggestion 😉 do check her post out for some utterly gorgeous screenshots) and as it’s not the 6th anymore, I will take her advice and make it 7 as it’s the 7th  (I think there is a slight chinese whisper effect from the original…

Favourite Screenshots [img heavy]

Ok, so this is a fluffy excuse of a post, but I thought I’d post some of my favourite screenies I’ve taken 🙂 First up, is my Mirkwood elf, Eldaeriel (LOTRO).  She’s at Gathbúrz staring at Dol Guldur, the source of the evil corrupting her home.  This was such a pain to get, it involved…

2014: the year of Elders Scrolls & Dragon Age

Well for the first three months of the year, all I could think about was Elder Scrolls.  Even to the extent of starting very enjoyable replays / noodling around of Morrowind, Oblivion & Skyrim.  I love this world so much – the freedom and exploration, the sneaking and thieving, killing things with a bow…  Finally, Elder Scrolls Online…

My character(s)

Post 16 of blaugust My main character is always a wood elf.  She is always a rogue type, either ranged or dual wielding. assuming of course the game gives you these choices.   For a RPG type game, I won’t play it at all if I don’t have at least have a gender choice.  I’ve got…

Last moments in Telon

A slightly maudlin post to begin the Blaugust challenge but one I need to write. I hadn’t been sure if I actually wanted to be online when Vanguard closed the servers but I decided that I would eventually regret not being there, taking a final tour of my favourite places and well, just saying good…

panoramic screenshots

I’ve been messing around with Hugin and trying to create some panoramic screenshots.  I think I still need to finetune the process but it’s fun.   As ever, click for full size images 😉
