The Witcher

I think around the time everyone was getting excited about the release of the Witcher 3, I picked up 1 & 2 on steam very cheaply.  I thought I’d play through the series rather than just jumping straight into 3. They’ve sat there for a while now… I recently remembered I’d bought them and on…

what to play

so just a summary of what I’m playing and what I might play in the near future. MMOs (ESO & Lotro) The grouping side of things has gone a little quiet and I’m quite liking that at the moment.  It’s mostly self imposed, I could find groups to run dungeons if I wanted but I…

9th blogoversary

Yeah… I had to double check that, but my first ever post was on 22 Jan 2009 /faint.  To be fair, that has included a fair few breaks and an extremely slack posting schedule.  I started off with the aim of describing my adventures and having somewhere to dump some screenshots.  The blog could be…

#DAI dragon age: hard in hightown

The news of an actual print version of this being available later this year cheered me up immensely.  Due out in July this year and authored by the one and only Varric Tethras (and Mary Kirby of course), I’ll be very disappointed if there isn’t a review by Cassandra or the Randy Dowager Quarterly (I…

all the elder scrolls

I don’t know what it is about this series but it’s kept me hooked for nigh on 20 years now…  Well probably something about the sneaking, the thieving, the freedom, the world… 😉 Anyway, I have been playing a LOT of ESO.  I have a regular Thursday evening dungeon group with friends which is always…

my 2016 in games

blog: well, I’ve managed to keep it going although some months were very quiet.  For the time I managed it, I did enjoy the tues/wed/fri regular posting so I may try that for next year.  Like, really try… maybe… single player games:   I finally played through the Mass Effect series – well, I’m halfway…

29 Ivarstead

The rest of the journey to Ivarstead went without incident.  I ended up telling Lester how I came to be in Skyrim, of the disaster that was Auridon and he did look quite horrified when he realised what he’d done involving a Thalmor in the hunt for me. We’ve also been discussing the dragon situation. …

28 more bandits

Well there’s nothing like a long protracted fight through a blockade to help thaw a frosty attitude!  I had previously apologised on the road, which  was met indifferently but I kept up a steady stream of chatter and his attitude had finally started to thaw when we came across the “toll road”.  There were quite…

27 treasure

[vaguely in-character diary of my playthrough | all entries | mods I’m using] We were attacked by a dragon, it seems we travelled too close to its lair.  He was guarding an enormous treasure chest – I love this part!  We do make a good team, Lester basically annoys the dragon (he has a talent…
