The Bookbinder, Rings, and Things

This past week has seen many changes. With the advent of GU 52, another questline opened, the Order of Rime (which I mentioned previously), Player-written books (with a quest for Sages) became available, and, today, the monthly “ring” event happened.

The (viscious) Circle of Life

Rao over at Gestalt Mind brought up some good points in his post “An age-old issue“. A lot of that post resonated, in that I have been thinking through a lot of the same points, but from the other side of the table, as it were.

Recently, it has become more and more obvious that, unless you happen to be the best in your class within a guild, or within your community of friends, you are less likely to be able to improve yourself. Allow me to clarify that statement. Continue reading ‘The (viscious) Circle of Life’

Don’t try this at home….otherwise, we’ll just laugh at your stupidity.

Ok. The title has really nothing to do with the post, except for the word “home”, and that won’t be until later on in the post.

The day started like many – in pain. So I laid in bed as long as I could, which turned out not to be that long, as the wife wanted me to help look for the printer cables. Well, we didn’t find them at that point. Anyway, being up already, I decided to log on to EQ2. I checked the broker, did some harvesting to supplement my shiny income, then I lay down for a mid-day siesta.

Note: For those out there who think they are going to correct my grammar, lay, in the manner in which I used it, is the past tense of lie, as in to lie on a bed. If you don’t believe me, do a google search for lie versus lay. I’ll wait. Continue reading ‘Don’t try this at home….otherwise, we’ll just laugh at your stupidity.’

Circumstantial Happenstance or Happenstantial Circumstance, whatevs

A lot has happened in the last four days. Unfortunately, most of it has not been in EQ2. Went to the doctor, and he recommended another 30 days off. (Yay!) Continue reading ‘Circumstantial Happenstance or Happenstantial Circumstance, whatevs’

The agony of da feet.

I’d love to say that I spent most of the day leveling my alt. And I did, in fact, spend most of the time I was in-game leveling my alt inquisitor, Shaineez. Unfortunately, I didn’t play for more than 3-4 hours all day.

I spent most of my time today asleep, with my feet elevated, trying to reduce the swelling. Right now, my feet look like the model used to design Shrek’s feet. It is hard to move them around and they hurt….a lot.

I will still post on here, but don’t expect any long posts until I start feeling better.

Joining the Dark Side.


Prior to this weekend, I had 14 “good” toons, and 10 “evil” toons. With all except Mwrrowrr (on the left) and Kalellian (on the right), and their class counterparts, there was an even division between classes. My guardian is good, while my berserker is evil. The same was true except for my druids and bards. Figuring that my Kerran Fury would have more “street cred” than my Half-elf Warden, and that the same would hold true for my Half-Elf Dirge as compared to my Halfling Troubador, I chose to change Mwrrowrr (the Fury) and Kalellian (the Dirge).

Altoholics of the World (aka Norrath a la EQII) unite!

Welcome to my new blog, Altoholics Anonymous.

I created this blog to discuss some of my characters accomplishments, as well as other items of interest – mostly pertaining to, or affecting Alternate Characters (Alts).

I have been playing EQII since around January 2006. In that time, I have created at least one character of each of the 19 races, and one of each of the 24 adventure classes, all with an adventuring level of 20 or higher. Among these are represented at least one of each of the tradeskill classes. I’m not counting the alts that were created and subsequently deleted. I am only counting the ones which I currently have.
