October 2020 Gaming Goals in Review

Posted on October 31, 2020

Overall, I did pretty well in achieving my goals considering the release of Bozja and the Relic weapons sidetracked a good chunk of my time. Let’s see how I did...

Second Life: Halloween Haunted Neighborhood

Posted on October 29, 2020

Though we usually spend some time on the haunted house ride and in the cornfield in Second Life for Halloween, this year, the Moles created something new to entertain us.

Ultima Online: First Week Back

Posted on October 27, 2020

It’s been a week since I’ve retrieved my old Ultima Online account – one that I made back in 1999. I have been playing it fairly consistently when time permits, though it’s been a bit of a learning curve getting back into it. How’s things going? Well…

FFXIV: Relic, Glamour and Making it Rain

Posted on October 26, 2020

I’ve been quite literally doing so much in FFXIV that I’ve needed to take time off to give my poor eyes a rest lately. Running as many FATEs as I have over the last couple weeks is enough to give me a case of eye strain.

FFXIV: Done with Stormblood (Again)

Posted on October 23, 2020

I’ve been pretty burned out with the struggle to get through Stormblood on yet another character. I’ve been working on finishing this up on Zuri for a while now. I’d left her in Yanxia for the better part of a year and finally, the last couple of months, I’ve put my nose to getting her out of that expansion and into Shadowbringers.

A Return to… Ultima Online

Posted on October 21, 2020

AKA: How I got my original 1999-2000 Ultima Online account back.

FFXIV: Tales from the Duty Finder – Getting Burned

Posted on October 20, 2020

So you may know that I’ve been struggling my way through Stormblood on my Zuri alt with varying degrees of success. Generally, I make progress on her before other FC folks get online and want to do other things. This means that I’m usually in a PUG group for the dungeons, which I already am less than enthusiastic about playing.

FFXIV: Bozja and 5.3 Relic Weapons

Posted on October 19, 2020

So the content that has captured the attention of my Free Company this weekend is the new Bozjan Southern Front. This area is one way to work on the new Relic Weapon upgrades (you can also do FATEs and dungeons), and has a number of throwbacks to Eureka.

FFXIV: Stormblood Progress

Posted on October 9, 2020

Last night, I finally pushed Zuri through the Menagerie, which is the final trial battle for the original Stormblood expansion. She’s now finally finished all of the 4.0 content and only has to get through the five patches that came afterward to reach Shadowbringers.

Second Life: Halloween House 2020

Posted on October 5, 2020

One of the things I’ve been looking forward to with the string of holidays coming up is decorating my Second Life cabin this year. Living in one of the Linden neighborhoods, there are some rules about how soon you can put decorations up and how late you can leave them up – no Christmas lights in March, folks!

October 2020 Gaming Goals

Posted on October 1, 2020

I’m happy that October is finally here! The weather is starting to cool off and the fall/Halloween vibes are some of my favorite. It’s time to break out decorations in all areas – IRL, Second Life, FFXIV, Animal Crossing.
