#Blaugust2022 – Day 4: Minecraft builds

This post has been sitting in my drafts folder for well over a year now – dusted off, updated and here it is 🙂 I’ve been playing a fair bit of Minecraft, on and off, throughout lockdown. I did have a really nice snowy village build that I played with my son, J – but…

notes on Expedition 7: Leviathan

Just some notes to help me remember useful things (I have died more times than I want to admit to in their new rogue-like expedition!) An in-depth guide can be found here which is really helpful. What seems to be kept through death so far: Bases (put bases on focal point planets / good mats,…

male or female character?

I’ve been thinking about the games I’ve played over the years, and it’s the games that allow you to play a female character that really stick with me.  In fact, going slightly further, it’s games that allow you play a female AND don’t give you a pre-formed character (so games like The Witcher and Dragon…

Journal of Elfa: Paused.

Morndas, 3rd of Sun’s Dusk (Journal) [OOC] I think this may be a good point to pause, or perhaps, finish this experiment. I have reached the point where all I am doing is buying and selling potions… I have visited all of the main cities, towns and villages, and I can’t think of anything interesting…

Journal of Elfa: Days 58 ~ 64 and 65 ~ 71

Sundas 12th of Frostfall to Loredas 18th of Frostfall (Journal) I walked back to Whiterun from Morthal. I had spied on the map a shortcut that looked like a pass through the mountains. The scenery is stunning around here, it was quite a long walk and I thought we could get through the pass before…

Journal of Elfa: Days 51-57

Sundas, 5th of Frostfell to Loredas 11th of Frostfell (Journal) I decided it was high time i visited Winterhold. I have been putting off visiting here as I know there isn’t a cart available there and it is possibly the coldest place in Skyrim. I prepared by packing lots of food, fire starters, my warmest…

Journal of Elfa: Day 44 – 50

Sundas, 28th of Hearthfire to Loredas 4th of Frostfell (Journal) I decided to try and widen my opportunities to sell potions. I caught the cart to Riften, then made the mistake of trying to walk to Ivarstead and then on to Whiterun. I have never seen so many bears… they are fast and deadly –…

Journal of Elfa: Days 37 – 43

Sundas, 21st to Loredas, 27th of Hearthfire (Journal) The Challenge Summary Balance: 7377 Houses owned: 1 Lvl 12 / Alchemy 51 / Speechcraft 51 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ So this in-game week I have just been making potions and selling them. I have stuck to the original rules – up until now, I have been purposely slowing things…

Journal of Elfa: Day 36

Sundas, 21st of Hearthfire (Journal) I am back at home. The strangeness of that incident at Raven Rock has left me feeling nervous. I have decided to stop exploring for a little while and stick to what I know. My intentions are to visit Whiterun, Solitude, and Markarth, to make and sell potions, and finally -hopefully-…
