I have been very very bad or good, however you look at it.

My Lich costume
 I have been so terrible lately. I haven't worked on a story, novel, or any blog posts for Detangled Writers, Crimson's Crafts and Culinary, or even this one in the last couple of days.

Why? Because my Dad talked me into joining an alliance with a real go-get-er guild. They do Urgoz's Warren, Fissure of Woe, and lots of faction farming runs. (we are Kurzicks by the by). Dad and I have been in The Jade Quarry the last two days turning our imperial faction from battles into Kurzick faction.

So far between the two of us, We've pumped in a 800,000+ faction into the alliance. And in doing that, along with our allies, we are helping to keep a town and discount merchants and the like. It's really nice. Plus we get to play with and talk to some really nice people. They do some training and teaching, show what skill combinations work best for them, and frankly, they've got me wishing I had more level 20 characters of other professions to swap out and play with  with them.

I've been a little of wary of joining any alliances because most of the time when I am in towns and have local chat on, I don't like a lot of what is being said. I also used to be in a guild and alliance (after I left to make a guild with my Dad) with a couple who happen to be the brother and sister-in-law of my girlfriend. There's some bad blood between us on account of what they did to my girlfriend's parents, how they've treated us, and even me separately  but I'm not going to get into that, it's done and over with. And I have been a little hesitant of joining another alliance because that meant socializing with people I didn't know and I don't do that very well, actually have a phobia of it.  Most of the time people either piss me off or worry me.

My Dad and I.
Moving on, I guess I need to do some recruiting for my guild. I have Kat, but she's been busy with school. I thought I had another friend but the game she got for xmas didn't work and I don't think she is going to get another one and play, which is okay, it's no big deal especially since she is also in school and really trying to crack the whip on herself to write. So, I have been putting up recruiting messages on my facebook. So far, no one has taken me up on it. I was thinking of trying it on my google plus account, but I am a little hesitant to do so. Three people, I don't know have added me in the last two weeks with no messages, and as far as I can tell, one of those is people might be spam. I haven't added them in return. I feel bad about it, but until I get more info out of them, I'm not going to pretend we are friends and invite them into my little world.

So, I think Dad and I will have to talk about recruiting, the when and where, and maybe take lessons from the leader of the FaT guild.
That's a bunch of us playing in URgoz's Warren
Oh and before I shift gears away from Guild Wars, yesterday I was in The Jade Quarry and someone sent me a whisper in German. I think, because they had a German name, that they were, well German. And since my character name is German, well you get it. Anyway, I have no idea what they said and since I was away from my computer at the time and they were gone by the time I got back, I couldn't ask. And of course, I forgot to write it down to translate it in google translator or even ask a friend who is taking German. In the end, I thought it was really cute and was and still am really tickled. 

All right, sleep. Oh boy, sleeping has been interesting. I've been conking out pretty quickly and sleeping very hard. Still having some wild dreams thanks to the new meds, and waking up in the morning is rather interesting. I seem to find myself asking "What the hell was that dream about?" and also, "Will you make the sun go away, I want more sleep". That dreaded day star doesn't make me happy, especially when it's not hidden by clouds first thing in the morning. I am not a morning person. I am worse after the five to ten minute internal convincing that has to be done to make myself get up and out of bed. I just pretend to be cheerful or nonchalant toward my house mates while the truth is, I am mentally smacking them with frying pans, pouring hot coffee in their laps. Okay, I'm not that bad... wait, yes I am. Heh heh heh, guess you'll never know because I'll never tell.

My birthday is coming up. I will be spending it at a casino north of where I live, mostly for the swimming and the nice balcony I can sit on and watch the river. Yes, I'll do a little gambling, but I'm really not one much for it. I hardly ever win anything and if I do it's so little and I almost never walk away with more than I came with. I really just want to relax and finish the books I borrowed from the library. Okay, and yes, maybe even play Guild Wars for a little bit while I am there. 

On a side note, I am going to make a list of crafts I want to get done this spring and then have two days where I do nothing but write about them and then do a craft blog dump, but schedule them, so people aren't spammed with them. I also have to do the same for Detangled Writers and I have several I want to do for this one.


  1. Damn girl you have been Guild Warsing like a boss! Also I am looking forward to our little balcony as well. <3

  2. I wish I had more than just the first Guild Wars. I've never been able to get to someplace called the Odessa Highlands or Dessa or something. Not sure since it's been so long. There's a million casters and they always annihilate me even if I have a pet, my minion and the party you take with you.

    I have a Guild Wars book and was just looking through it. Makes me want to play again. :P

  3. The place sounds vaguely familiar. However, I've looked at some maps and haven't a clue where that is. But, if you want, I can go with you. My main character is a fire elementalist /monk and I would love to play with some different combinations. I also have some other characters. And I certainly wouldn't mind helping you out, maybe sucker you into joining my guild or a guild in the alliance I am in.

    Do you have Prohecies, Factions, or Nightfall? I think you bought the game before Eye of the North came out.

    I really do need to read that book and I checked it out from my library not too long ago. But I took it back since I hadn't finished the games. I still had to beat Nightfall at the time and there are a couple of small campaigns between the end of the game, the book, and the pick up of Guild Wars 2.

  4. I think Prophecies is the one I have, if that's the first one. I had a free 14-day trial to play Factions and I really want that one. I had a male assassin I called Naota-kun and I really miss playing it. Factions is pretty depressing once you get past the catastrophe that annihilates everything into a burnt out crisp. But...that's the only one I have right now. I'll probably add factions when I can get a cheap copy. I saw a three pack for 29.00 that includes all of the first three. I'm already too broke to get it now after paying off that credit card this month.

    You'll have to run a quest with me before deciding you want me in your guild, lol. I suck pretty bad at grouping with people. I get pretty nervous knowing exactly what to do and I end up pushing the wrong keys and whatnot. I had such a horrible experience the first time I ran the Deadmines on Wow with a horrible group. Yeah, it scarred me for life, lol. I'm not terribly good at video or MMO's, period but I enjoy them. Since I know you and know you wont ream my ass if I fuck up maybe it'll be more relaxing and enjoyable.

    Is it true that they changed how things work now, or do people still get their own separate instance in the game. Maybe I'm thinking of Guild Wars 2.

  5. Even as I was typing, my new power supply showed up at the door, so I'll be finishing the computer my son sent me. I'll be able to download and run Guild Wars then.

    I also got my Earl Grey Creme tea and am enjoying a cup now. :-D

  6. Yes, it is Prophecies that you have. My Dad had to tell me where that place is you were talking about because I couldn't remember where it was.

    Factions is a lot of fun! I've been mostly playing in factions lately. But that's because I am doing runs with people in my alliance and contributing faction for stuff. But I really liked Factions anyway.

    You know, I don't think I will have an issue playing with you on the game. I know you already and I am really laid back when playing. The two leaders of the alliance that my Dad and I are in absolutely love my Dad and I because we are so relaxed and we don't cause drama. You'd be surprised how bizarre and just plain childish some people can be. But there are some really nice people in the alliance who I've had the chance to talk too a little bit.

    No, I'm not going to ream you for messing something up. It's just a game and the way I see it, you're not going to learn anything if you don't make some mistakes. I've made plenty. Just last night I tried to run around a group of baddies we were trying to kill and I got myself killed before I made it very far. Of course I was far enough away from the the main group to be resurrected for awhile. -_- I felt like a dumb ass but no one chewed me out for it. They didn't say anything, actually.

    Also the leader of the alliance I am in likes to teach new players stuff. Which, I find really awesome!
