This morning, half awake, I decided to betray my monk to a bruiser. Nothing new there, I’ve been betraying classes back and forth since as long as I (or anyone else for that matter) can remember. It’s one method for me to keep the game fresh. I gave it some thought and then decided not only would I betray my monk, but I would also re-activate my second account (I really do like having the ability to make alts and box in EQ2) and, I would take my 45 brigand and betray them to a swashbuckler at the same time (boxing via the laptop and synergy) as betraying my monk.
It worked out pretty well, though I’m not quite done working on the faction I need for the monk. They both met up in Haven where one tried to convince the other that where they were headed was a path of wrongness and other variables, but ultimately betrayal won out for both of them.
Aside from that, I also got to welcome Ardwulf to Nostalgia! Surprised me, I was almost (almost!) tempted to re-activate my Vanguard account after reading his post but decided to go with the EQ2 boxing rout instead. After some careful consideration I decided I actually miss settling down in one game. I enjoy playing a large amount but it never really let me ‘finish’ anything. With a new EQ2 expansion coming out on Tuesday, I want to say ‘yes, I play EQ2 as my main game of choice’ rather then ‘well I play EQ2 and EQ1 and WoW and Wizard 101 and and and and’ listing game after game. Once the novelty of the new expansion wears off no doubt I’ll go back to game hoping.
So far it’s been a great weekend. I managed to get my paladin a few levels (24!) and some new weapons (thank you Shadowgeist) as well as getting my brigand swashbuckler some new weapons. For some reason when I attempt to /claim my 5 year reward I’m met with an error (that’s not restricted to me either might I add, everyone is getting it) and hopefully it’s fixed before too long. As far as I’m aware it’s meant to go live on Tuesday along with GU50 and the expansion. Guess we’ll see!
Tomorrow I’d like to get a few craft levels, finish betraying the monk, and we’ll see what else from there.
NaNoWriMo is going well, after my huge flop of only 500 words yesterday I sat down and added another 2,000 on top of that this morning at 6am and will do another 2,000 once this post is wrapped up for the day. That will put me at around 28,000 and on track to finish around the 26th. The experience has been interesting for me. I’m not sure if it’s been a good one or a bad one yet. I’ve never written this much before, ever. My longest stories have only ever been a few pages. I’ve hit page 41 with my NaNoWriMo story. I can’t even say whether or not I enjoy it. I don’t think I really do, but it has opened up doors for other stories I wouldn’t mind writing, or at least other types of stories. Guess that’s enough procrastinating here!
I hope everyone is having an amazing weekend!
