Oh, and another thing

Destro kill our king the other day. I expected it far sooner, but *shrug*. Grats to them.

2010, Welcome Back!

After the holiday break, welcome back everyone. I hope all had a merry time and spent it with family and loved ones. I also hope that you got to squeeze in some gaming time. I don’t know about others, but I’ve always found that the holiday’s offered less opportunity to spend on our collective hobby than the rest of the year. Still, even with all that was going on for me, I got in some gaming, and had an interesting time with the family.

My Christmas break was spent in the hospital for the most part (for obvious reasons), but I got to return home the day after Christmas with my wife +1. The weekend was spent in a blurry haze of naps and late nights, and lots of TV marathons. Monday I returned to work, and a slightly more normal routine. I got to romp about the world of WAR with my guild, which has been bursting at the seams of late with people. We’ve had a major revitalization of the guild, and I continue to be amazed by it, we have 8 people on at one time the other day, and there was even a warband being led in our vent. It was spooky, and a bit uncomfortable to tell the truth. I have no fear of Blitz ever becoming a zerg guild, or anything even close to it, but memories of vent channels with five people all speaking at the same time still bring about the frequent blepharospasm (thanks to my friend getting her doctorate in Pharmacy for that $10 word).

My Knight is coming along quite nicely, I hit RR57 just yesterday, I have my full set of Invader gear filled for the most part with the talismans I want. I also got my 2-handed weapon from Lost Vale, thanks to the continued assistance and urging of my guild leader to convince us to do the hated PvE task. None of us like doing it, so I appreciate it all the more. Lastly, the guild got 37 just the other day, so we have our fast mounts now. All these changes so close together and I really feel like a beast on my KotBS now. More than before, I feel like a strong entity on the field of battle, able to help swap the tide. I can only hope that the enemy is starting to recognize my Knight for more than just my guild tag or the allies at my side.

As for other gaming, my goals fell drastically short of what I wanted.
