Happy 15th Anniversary, #lotro!

I haven’t played for the full 15 years, I started playing about 2.5 years later. Even so, it’s a long time to be playing a game! I haven’t played solidly in all that time but at least 6 months out of the year I’m in lotro. I thought I’d post a picture and a link…

#lotro Elven Settlements #1

#skyrim The Rift

It’s one of my favourite areas, the autumnal golds and feeling of warmth is a nice change from the frozen snowy areas.

#Skyrim – Enderal

Enderal is a massive, total conversion mod for Skyrim.  It is now available as a separate game on the Steam platform (although you will still need the original Skyrim installed, of course) which makes the installation super easy. The landscapes and architecture are beautiful and varied, occasionally you will get a jolt or deja vu…
