I drink too much during Frostfell

Over the weekend, I had hoped to accomplish a few things during the Frostfell celebration in EQ2. Instead, I got very drunk.

Ginmere took her raptor to the Frostfell Wonderland Village, turned on some Ghost B.S., Korpiklaani,

and some Garth Knight, and proceeded to drink several glasses of holiday rum. I’m not sure how long I was there for, but the only thing I accomplished was crafting two very ugly dresses. Iksars don’t look good in these kinds of dresses (screenshot pending) …

Fortunately, Boofy, Ginmere’s wolf, helped her make it home safely. I’m pretty sure the raptor may have had some rum as well..

Take no heed at Little Thule’s (on the right) concern.

Shelter to Nurture

I replayed the final area of Shelter and was able to save one baby, so yay for that. I will replay again at another time and do better, I promise.After the end, I switched to playing Nurture mode.

nurture

According to Christoffer Hedborg’s Nurture tumblr page, “When the story begins you’ll have to leave the sett in search of food to bring back. Once you’ve collected all the food that is to be found or finished feeding your children you are welcome to enjoy nature. Once you’re finished you can leave the game. But don’t leave it for too long because if you do you’re children will starve….

As the cubs grow they’ll eventually start venturing out into the wild with you. The larger they grow the further you’ll be able to explore from the sett. To begin with you’ll only find apples, turnips and the like but when you get further you’ll begin to find animals to hunt.”

Right now my cubs are chilling in their sett. Hopefully, I will do better on Nurture mode or at least not cry so much 😀

GODDAMMIT SHELTER!

Shelter is a game where you play as a mother badger trying to keep her five babies alive. It’s really beautiful, but mostly REALLY FUCKING SAD.

Your babies can get killed in the saddest ways possible and it will leave you feeling incredibly guilty and in tears if they die. I had to hug all of my pets after playing the game. Also, I was a terrible mother during my playthrough. I will try again, but I will probably need to watch 20 comedies and hug everything a lot after to balance the INCREDIBLE SADNESS.

Gonna go cry now.

Advanced Chest & Thighs

This is Owena, my Aerakyn Channeler. I went a little crazy during the SOE Black Friday/ Cybz Monday sale…

Owena has been very interesting to play so far and a bit confusing. Let me begin by saying Aerakyn are dope. Get the expensive, best kind of Aerakyn if you’re going to buy one because… well, it’s just better.

Channelers. Wow. What an interesting class. Channelers are a priest class that use bow and a construct pet. The use of bow allows the channeler to be mobile while using most skills and the construct pet can be molded by different creature types that you uh.. . absorb (?) throughout Norrath.

In your wittle construct menu, you can put different body parts on your construct based on the creatures you absorb… also at level 10, you magically acquire “Advanced Chest” and “Advanced Thighs.” When this popped on my screen, I was like “Well, thanks for noticing, EQ :>” but then I thought… “WTF are advanced chest and thighs?” This is how I learned about the construct menu. I most likely could’ve looked at the friendly hints thingy flashing in the top right corner of the game, but I was too excited for that nonsense.

Turns out the Advanced Chest/Thighs were for my construct, not me 😦

Also, my suspicious Freeblood

Next time: Ginmere’s Frostfell

EQ2 Aventures – Iksar Edition

Hi. I like iksar. A lot. An iksar shadowknight was the first MMO character I ever played and since then, you could say that we’ve been pretty tight.

This is my iksar defiler, Ginmere, in EverQuest 2.

This is a drunken party at her house. It has never been the same.

After taking a break from EQ2 for a while, I realized that Kunark had been added. Here are the statues cheering on Ginmere and welcoming her back 😀

The only problem being back on Kunark: there’s this conflict between the sarnak and the iksar and all the jerks that won’t sell to me are like, “Help us fight both sides cuz we can’t hold back the iksar lol.”

I’m just like, “You know I hate you, right? How bout we side with the iksar and I take you as my slaves? Or maybe I can sacrifice you to Cazic Thule?”

I /threaten and NPC that won’t sell or talk to me.

More to come on Ginmere’s life as an iksar and also:

How my Aerakyn got Advanced Thighs.
