Tomorrow is the first of April (beware April Fool’s Day), and also the first day of April’s Camp NaNoWriMo for 2015.

FFXIV: Practice Dungeons and Face-Melting FATES

Posted on March 30

I actually took a little break from FFXIV Sunday afternoon to play and troubleshoot Sims 4, but I still accomplished a whole lot over this weekend. Syn and I finally completed all story content for Patch 2.4 and have made a good bit of progress into patch 2.51. There’s no way we’re going to finish it before tomorrow’s patch drops, but it’s nice to be on relevant content for the first time ever!

I’m a webcomic artist who works on a comic called Wayrift. Wayrift is turning 13 years old today. It’s actually been around longer than that, but for simplicity’s sake, I just call it 13 years.

Final Fantasy XI Going Mobile – Are You Ready for MMMORPGs?

Posted on March 19

Soon after FFXI first launched in the US, my sister and I were there in the world of Vana’deil. I had grand dreams for my Red Mage, but most of those dreams would never come to pass. While the game was great for people who had lots of time, friends and a solid linkshell, it did not do much to include folks like me.

Geek Health: Bento Lunches and PlanetBox Review

Posted on March 18

I believe this is the first time I’ve written something health/fitness wise on this blog ever. I am by no means an expert on the topic – in fact, my current state of health and fitness is in great need.

FFXIV: Achieving Goals

After feeling frazzled by my goal-setting schedule the past few weeks, I’ve finally reached the light at the end of the leveling tunnel. Over the weekend, I earned level 50 Paladin for Tai and finished up all the class quests for him.

GW2: Changing WvW Requirement in World Completion

Posted on March 12

So the newest GW2 patch notes for the Chinese client, which were copied and posted on Reddit, talked about the camera changes, new faces and some class changes. Tucked in the middle of it all sat one of the biggest announcements (IMHO): WvW removed from map completion.

FFXIV: Identity Crisis & Progress

Posted on March 10

With only 100 days left until Heavensward’s Early Access, I’d be lying if I didn’t say I’m feeling a push to get things done. With the announcement of Heavensward’s upcoming FC crafting and airship project, I’ve also tried to double down on leveling my crafting the best I can.

The Secret World – Did You Know: Kingsmouth Website

Posted on March 3

Chatting in comments on Isey’s new post about The Secret World reminded me of one of the things I love most about the game. The lengths the devs went to, both in game and outside game, to take advantage of the modern day elements.
