Quail Plaza

Quail Plaza is coming along, I’ve almost completed the third story of the block, and then I’ll add ladders, and begin the 4th floor. I’m going to hold off on decorating until near the end, but I’m pleased with the overall effect. It should look exactly as I had hoped – a shopping plaza!

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself.


Longer Affinity Timers?! How!

I know you can get MUCH longer affinity timers by using alcohol instead of food – but I have no idea how people are able to customize 30+ day drinks. I know how to make complex moonshine, which gives me the toy affinity, but anything else is beyond me. I’d love to figure this out one day.


Godwoken

Adventures continue in Divinity Original Sin II with my husband – we managed to escape Fort Joy, had a living ship sail us around (which reminded me VERY MUCH of Robin Hobbs books), and visited the underworld or some such before we were spat back out on a much larger map. We rescued a little baby chick from some void creatures, and then they killed the entire flock of chickens EXCEPT for this evil-ish one, so now I’m leading around a wee tiny void chicken.

Gotta say, this game is enjoyable for the stories, that’s for sure. We’re playing on story mode so there isn’t much chance that we’ll actually die from anything (though we did, once) and I’m comfortable with that. It’s a great way to spend an hour or two together in the evenings when the kids are asleep.


New Mount!

To keep people busy until 5.5 releases, there are certain events you can do in game that reward a currency you spend to get neat appearance items, emotes, map travel unlocks – and mounts. It’s simple things like running the main scenario and doing the pvp frontline. I’ve been saving up for a while and I was finally able to afford this beauty! Pretty. I’m no where near ready for 5.5 since I haven’t even finished the base story yet, but I’m excited for everyone else. I’ll get there – eventually.


Adorable

I love gpose mode in FFXIV – and I love my minions even more. This little dude looked like he was enjoying a meal chomping down on some innocent bystander’s ankle.


The Last Unicorn

Absolutely LOVE this transmog from the PVP vendor. My bard just had to have it.


Happy Easter

I still love having events in video games, even if they replicate real life a lot of the time. This year Wurm Online rewarded premium players with an Easter egg hunt that gave us a new decoration – flowers! They’re lovely.

There were also events going on in Wurm Unlimited on the Sklotopolis server. I’ve been taking a little break while I play some FFXIV, but I’ll be back to posting about my deed there before too long.

Happy gaming, and happy Easter, no matter where you find yourself.


FFXIV Adventures

I have one job at 80 in FFXIV – and it’s the dancer. Unfortunately, I don’t really ENJOY this class at 80 as much as I thought I would, so I’ve been looking to level up a few other jobs so that I have more options. One that I wanted to try was Archer/Bard. I managed to inch my way to 30, do the class quest to unlock bard, and then I paid for a boost to 70. Zero regrets, this is a fun ranged DPS class that I’m enjoying a great deal.

I’m also leveling up a warrior and an astrologist for a tank / healer option. I’d like to get caught up in the current story before 5.5 releases, but I’m pretty sure that won’t be happening, there’s just so much content (NOT a bad thing by any means, I love that there’s so much for me to do).

I’d also like to reach 80 in a few more crafts, and finish off botany which is my final harvest job that needs 80 yet (I think I’m at 75). My husband is no longer playing with me and that has put a bit of a damper on things, plus my FC fell apart so I have no ‘home’ but I’m still chugging along.


April Gaming Goals – 2021

I didn’t have a lot of gaming goals this time around, but that is probably a good thing because I didn’t even keep up with the ones I had.

Incomplete:

  • Did not clear the plot of land I own on Novus – instead I traded this to Moumix, and started Quail Plaza on my main deed on Liberty.
  • I also did not play any Littlewood – though I did pick it up for Switch when it released.

Complete:

  • Continue to play Divinity Original Sin 2 with the husband. This has been a great evening activity for us, we’ve made it out of Fort Joy, and discovered all sorts of juicy details. I’m having a blast.

April Goals:

  • Finish at least four floors to one building at Quail Plaza. There are three buildings total, I’ll be happy as long as SOME progress is being made.
  • Reach 80 in another class in FFXIV. Whether it’s crafting or adventuring, I want to see some progress!
  • Play an older game from my steam library and try to complete it (hah).
  • Continue past the next chapter in Divinity. I’d love to see me and my husband ‘complete’ this game together.

Fatter Cat

I absolutely had to get this mount from the shop. My retainer is working at fishing the minion version up, and everything about the duo makes me laugh and smile. Especially the little cat sounds they make when you summon / dismiss.
