It seems like it's always raining on ESO's version of Vvardenfell. Not wanting to get soaked, Glorawen goes beneath a construction platform, leans back against her loyal pony pet and waits for the showers to stop.

(I love the vast variety of ESO emotes)

I managed to squeeze in a little extra playing time in ESO so I could get the ESO Anniversary memento. It's certainly a pretty cake.

With the move only a few weeks away, I'm still managing to squeeze in short ESO play sessions for around half an hour after dinner. Last night, instead of the usually wandering around the starting area gathering crafting materials, Glorawen took a boat to Vvardenfell and began decorating the penthouse apartment in Vivec City.



No doubt some would raise their eyebrows about the pony being in there, but she's house broken and never ever makes a mess. ;)

It's April already. If all goes according to plan, this is the last full month that we will be living in our current house. At the end of the month we will hopefully be putting it up for sale. We will then take off in the RV and began looking for a new house that is closer to Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons.

During that time I will be taking a break from the internet since my computer will be boxed up and in a trailer that will be towed behind either the RV or the car. Hopefully it won't take us long to find a new house and get settled in.

With the move being only a month away, I still don't have much time to play ESO and start any quests/storylines, but Glorawen managed to earn the Khenarthi's Roost Angler achievement by catching a rare Pyandonean Ray.

After seeing how good the armor looked on Glorawen, I got it along with the Brassy Assassin personality. I knew I'd regret it if I didn't.

crown_of_antlers: (ESO - Glorawen)
The Brassy Assassin Personality is now available (for a very limited time) in the ESO store. I just previewed it with Glorawen (who is not an assassin, not that it matters) and I'm trying to decide if it suits her. Read more... )

This is just another screen of Glorawen with her pony Gloranna strolling along the shores of Khenarthi's Roost searching barrels and crates for cooking ingredients.



I know some of my fellow ESO players are amazed that I've had Glorawen in the starting area for so long, but believe me, I've had Aeronwen in TES III spend a LOT more time than this hunting mudcrabs in the wilderness around Seyda Neen.

Eventually, most likely after the move, I'll have Glorawen move on and see more of the world, but for now I'm content with roleplaying her as a solitary island dweller who lives off the land.

I stayed up a little later than usual last night and briefly logged in with my male Bosmer Nightblade Andravan. As I mentioned on Twitter, in my head-canon, he and Glorawen eventually meet in Morrowind, where they marry, settle down, and have their daughter Cirwen (which makes Andrvan my Morrowind character's great grandfather.



Since creating Andravan I've really started wishing that ESO had a "house actor" feature like Everquest 2. In EQ2 you could buy or make what was basically a featureless dummy. Once the dummy was placed, you could select it and open and interface which allowed you to change the dummy's race, gender, and features. So basically you could make it look like one of your alts and have it there to greet your main character anytime he or she came into the house.

I haven't purchased a house in ESO yet, but I plan to eventually, and again, I wish there was a feature so that my Bosmers could see each other any time one or the other came to the house.

Recently I did a search to see if there were any communities on Dreamwidth that focused on Elder Scrolls Online and was surprised when none appeared in the account list. Yes, there were a number of communities focused on TES, but none for ESO. So I created [community profile] tamriel_travelers .

I realize that at the moment communities on Dreamwidth don't seem to be as active as they were back in the heyday of Live Journal, but if by some chance there are others who want to join and participate, Tamriel Travelers is here.

For now the community settings are for open membership and open posting. The settings will remain that way unless some sort of problem comes up.

Being more of a roleplayer than one who worries about leveling and end game, I tend to do things like having my characters go indoors when it rains or get some sleep during the night.

Here is a random roleplay moment; Glorawen (and her prissy pony) waited out a storm inside one of the small temples that were built around the island of Khenarthi's Roost. Not only are there bedrolls to stretch out on, but there is also a cookfire that can be used if one knows some recipes and has the needed ingredients in their inventory.

Don't hate them for being beautiful.



Yes, I'm still gushing over them. Not only do I really like this horse and pony, but I didn't expect to ever be able to get them. They were originally available before I started playing ESO and I didn't expect them to ever be available in the store again.

But for a limited time they were and now they're mine! All mine! ;)

Glorawen and her adorable palomino pony take a moment to enjoy the view before heading out to gather crafting materials.

The day these lovely equines were available has at last arrived. The pretty palominos are mine.



Edited to add a shot from the character select screen. Love all the gold.

Life continues so...

Here is Glorawen (from Elder Scrolls Online) wearing the new Deepwoods Pod-Singer Tunic which was added to the Crown store today.



Now she is eagerly waiting for February 14th when she can get the White-Gold Imperial Courser mount and the matching White-Gold Imperial Pony pet. I love palomino equines and can't pass these up.

I may not have a lot of time to actually play the game right now, but when I do, Glorawen will have plenty of pretty things to keep her happy.

Cross posting to my various journals;

I haven't been active due to preparing to move, but now something else has happened to pull me away from my projects for a while. My father passed away today.

Rest in peace, Dad. I'll see you later in Heaven.

It's been a while since I've done a LOTRO outfit post, but I was so pleased with the way my character's current outfit matched her war steed's new gear that I felt motivated to put one together.

The 2018 Harvest Festival gave us the Harbinger war steed gear, which includes a head piece, but the LOTRO war steeds have such pretty heads and manes that I usually leave my steed's head uncovered. The "saddle pad" piece, which can be dyed, works very well with the Dunlending Jacket, which can be obtained as a quest reward or bartered for in the Dunlend zone.

In these screens, Glorawenn's and her steed's gear is dyed sea blue. The combination also looks nice in Forest Green.

Today marked the end of my husband's vacation and he went to work this morning, which means today was the beginning of my "new normal".

I love our other cat Belle, but admittedly she is not the most comforting cat at a time like this. She is almost sixteen years old, and therefore spends most of her time burrowed under blankets sleeping.

Belle greeted me when I came out to the kitchen this morning, checked her food and water dishes when I refilled them, and then ambled off somewhere for a morning nap. I didn't see or hear her until mid afternoon when she decided to come out and tell me that it was getting close to dinner time.

During those hours when my husband is at work and Belle is sleeping, I am alone with Willow's absence.

I didn't spend the day crying at my desk like I thought I would, but I can't say that this was a good day. Willow was always hanging out here in my home office, or tagging along when I did laundry or other household chores. So there is nothing I can do to not be faced with a reminder that Willow is gone.
crown_of_antlers: (Crown of Antlers)
The vet's office just called to let us know that Willow's ashes are ready to be picked up along with a clay imprint of her paw.

There is a shelf high on the wall in the corner of the room where I have placed the container that holds my first cat Mina's ashes. Willow was always trying to jump up to that shelf. I would then tell her that she didn't belong up there.

Now...in the last six or seven months that we're living in this house I'm going to be placing Willow's ashes on the shelf beside Mina's.

Damn it, this shouldn't have happened! Willow, you don't belong up there!

Edited to add: After fastening her collar around the box, I placed Willow's ashes on the shelf next to Mina's. Willow is home. Not in the way I would like her to be, but she's home.
