  1. Redguard and Battlespire are now available on GOG.com! This is the first time a digital edition of the games have been available. https://www.gog.com/news/bethesda_softworks...s_way_to_gogcom
  2. Keep in mind that those are DLC, so you'll either have to pay for them individually, or do the $15/month ESO Plus subscription, which gives you a stipend of 1500 Crowns per month and access to all DLC while subscribed.
  3. Nope, not really. I picked up Skyrim without knowing what it was about even (aside from the fact that it was a fantasy rpg) and I was hooked as soon as I started playing - it's pretty straightforward. (And now I help run one of the oldest, most famous fansites for the series, lol.) Not yet aside from the fact that they want to do it "someday". The next few DLCs will be Imperial City (releasing at the end of this month for PC/mac and Sept for consoles), Orsinium (expected holiday 2015), Thieves Guild (expected Q1 2016), and Dark Brotherhood (expected Q2 2016). Also in the works, w
  4. I'm hoping for the Artistic dragon. About six or seven years ago I'd had the exact same idea for a dragon, and had started writing out information about the breed and sketching my ideas for it - and then one day I was looking at the "in-progress" list and found something very similar to my idea. So even though I didn't officially invent it, I've always had a fondness for that in-progress breed.
  5. I am unusually lucky when entering drawings and the like: I recently won $25 on the single lottery ticket my aunt sent me for my birthday. And today was our church picnic. Aside from winning on a lot of my Cherry Tree tootsie-rolls, I also won a game of Bingo (although since there were two of us the winnings were split), and tonight I checked my voice mail to find that I also won a basket in the basket raffle, which features some place settings, two bottles of wine, and a gift certificate to a spa, which I'm looking forward to (I've never been to one.)
  6. I posted on page 2 back in December about how I play piano, recorder, flute, and piccolo. I just got myself an acoustic guitar on Friday. I've just been teaching myself from youtube videos so far; I've learned how to read a chord chart and have been practicing some chords. My fingers get so sore though.
  7. Anyone see the preview for the Imperial City DLC for ESO today? It looks fun! I still have so much to catch up on in the game, though. Also, what do you guys think of Legends (the mobile card game that was announced)?
  8. We have a high of 87F (about 31C) today here in Wisconsin. Hottest day of the year so far.
  9. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/July_3 1608 - Quebec City was founded 1775 - George Washington was made commander of the Continental Army 1844 - The last pair of great auks was killed 1863 – American Civil War: The final day of the Battle of Gettysburg culminates with Pickett's Charge. 1890 - Idaho became a state. I share a birthday with Tom Cruise and Montel Williams, and Andy Griffith died on my birthday. And that's about all I see of people I actually have heard of.
  10. I have an upper Midwest (American) accent. I sent a short voice clip to my Irish friend the other day - his internet's too unstable to Skype or anything, but we discovered we can do that at least - and he says that I sound "really American".
  11. Tired in a good way: got a recliner up into my apartment on my own.
  12. I noticed that a Bosmer on Khenarthi's Roost has a Dunmer name, Indaryn Drurel; they probably just gave him the wrong race or something. I mentioned it in zone chat, and there was a little bit of speculation that perhaps he's adopted. Then someone spontaneously came up with a whole backstory for him: Stuff like this is why I love the ESO community, lol.
  13. Yep, that's not just a theory; it's what actually happened. The Greg Keyes novels, which take place 40 years after Oblivion (which is about 160 years before Skyrim), elaborate on it a bit: one of the characters is the reason why it fell. (They were using people's souls to power the floating mechanism, and he wasn't cool with the fact that his girlfriend was one of the people who was being used as the battery.) It's not known for sure why Winterhold collapsed, but the Red Mountain's eruption is a possibility. I haven't played too much Morrowind yet, just about 5 or so hours. What a
  14. I got part of my toenail removed yesterday; I have recurring problems with it being ingrown on that toe. So, it's tender right now; sore if I walk.
  15. My senior year of college; a guy that I met in video game club and started dating. It was at a Taco Bell (romantic, I know, lol. It was at night and there was nobody else around though, so not as embarrassing as it would sound.)
  16. Yes, that is 100% rumor. Here's a friend of mine explaining the whole thing:
  17. Nothing quite like that, no. Aside from the occasional quests not proceeding properly - which are few and far between and usually fixed by logging out and in - it's mostly visual, and sometimes NPC behavior. I guess you have the occasional "falling through the world" glitch too; I've encountered it three or four times, but it seems to be more common on slower computers. One upside to that, however: my friend managed to get outside the playable area and see incomplete areas such as Skingrad in Cyrodiil - on the public server, folks, not the test server. (Mostly however these are just hei
  18. I joined in February 2009, missing the first Valentines by only two or three days. I actually knew of the site for quite a while before that though; I'd been watching it longingly since Skywings were released, just hadn't joined for a while because I was nervous about using my email for it. My first batch or two died without even hatching. my first dragon to grow up was a CB Dark Green that I caught as a hatchling on the Abandoned page; the extra views from its first owner helped. It still has its original name, Tangle28; I didn't realize names had to be unique and got frustrated and ju
  19. Last night I dreamed I was in some virtual reality MMO, some fantasy-based one similar to The Elder Scrolls. The gamemakers were having a dance contest for a prize: players would have to perform a dance for the judges and it'd be recorded and judged. I didn't know really what was going on until a friend pulled me into the line to wait. I hated dancing (as I do in real life) but the prizes, whatever they were, sounded good. I watched as players did synchronized emotes, or just actual dances. Then they called me and the friend and as we took the stage I was like, "Wait, we didn't plan or prac
  20. If you're staying true to the Green Pact, the major thing to affect your gameplay will probably be that you're not supposed to pick any plants in Valenwood, on pain of death. There's actually a quest revolving around this somewhere in Valenwood: a Bosmer is dying of illness, and suddenly the plant that'll cure it has been picked, so they know that someone broke the Pact, and you have to figure out who it was. Yeah, more or less. Each skill levels up (and as it does, there's more abilities available to spend skill points on), and contributes to your overall level. (Your overall l
  21. I got the Tales of Tamriel: Volume 1: The Land book today. It's a compilation of in-game lorebooks, paired with lovely artwork. It's pretty nice. There'll be two ESO volumes, and three Skyrim volumes.
  22. Sore. Had to go to the dentist to get a filling, first off. Second, my toe started hurting real bad over the weekend; my toenail that gets ingrown from time to time acts up occasionally, but this got really bad really fast - and infected - so I had to get that looked at. I'm on antibiotics now and have to get part of the nail removed next week (for the 4th time total). :/
  23. Yes, there are vampires and werewolves in ESO. It's harder to become one, though: the NPCs that can infect you only appear when the moons are at certain phases, from what I heard, and other players are going to be around there, either in the hope of being infected themselves, or in the interest of killing the NPCs so that they can't infect people (dunno if they still do that though.) You can also be bitten and infected by another player; they can use this once per week. Do NOT ask for it in the beginner zones, though, and especially not for free; nobody appreciates a newbie asking fo
  24. Yeah, you are in NO WAY going to be able to hold everything in your inventory and bank. Far, far, far too many. Best thing would be to join a guild; guild banks can hold 500 stacks (your guild has to have at least 10 members). The ones I'm in have a policy where you can take anything, as long as it's for you to USE (not sell), that you're reasonable about the amount and rarity of items that you take, and as long as you put things into it too. Gold drops are a bit small, only a couple gold per creature, if that even. They increase with your level though. Questing's the way you'll ear
