Tis the Season

… To want to do nothing but sit inside and read and play video games. But alas, I still have two papers to write, a video production to film and a French test to sit. Ah well. I thought now might be a good time to share the random things I’ve been doing across my games. Minecraft, LOTRO and Skyrim have all gotten some use recently.

Since this is a pretty image heavy post, I’m going to put most of this into the “Read more”, so read more!

Skyrim Got Me

Remember when I was all like “Yeah I’m totally getting back into LOTRO!”? It’s becoming more and more obvious that I may never play at the same level as I once did. I used to log in every day. A day without LOTRO felt strange. Now, I can go weeks without it, and have easily. It’s not any one thing and I don’t even think it’s LOTRO’s fault. It’s just hard playing one game for years and years almost every day. Variety is good. Life also has been getting in the way.

But this weekend I have been playing Skyrim. I had never even played any of the other Elder Scrolls games, but the past few weeks I got caught up in the hype and bought it on Friday. And I love it.

I’ve tried to re-create Cithryth in Skyrim as much as I could. It’s pretty easy because the first main town, Whiterun, is so startlingly like Rohan – they even have a horse on their banners!

So here is Skyrim-Cithryth:

She uses a greatsword (like LOTRO-Cithryth), wears heavy armour, and is working on her healing spells (like a captain should). The only big difference is that Skyrim-Cithryth can also use a bow, something I’ve always wanted to be able to do with LOTRO-Cithryth.

It’s a really fun game so far. I’ve only just gotten to level 10. Everyone I walk by says I look sick, I’m not sure why. My roommate’s boyfriend says that I probably have a disease or something, but I have no idea where I would see if that is true or not and then how to cure it.
