What A View
This week is crunch week for me as far as deadlines go, which means even though I write about video games for a living, for this one week I don’t really have any time to play them (go figure). In the mean time, here is one of (many) amazing views in Sentinel’s Fate. This one happens to be the ceiling of the Erudian Library, one of my favorite zones. You explore it much like a clue game, finding out who committed murder. You need to gather clues for the room and weapon and the like, and piece them together to accuse the final NPC.
The great thing is that you can take home items from the zone. There are two books, a rug, as well as the item of the ‘body’ you’ll find in the zone. My favorite happens to be the planter with a little arm sticking out of it, like it was stuffed there haphazardly. The zone also drops some fantastic loot, so if you haven’t been there yet, I recommend it.
Anyone speak Erudite? I always wondered if those runes up there translated into anything. In case you’re not aware, in your EQ2 folder are language folders that have the alphabets of all the races. Yes, those symbols that you see are actual alphabet letters.
Cool or what.
