Splattered Kalamaf

So last night while flying around the Fens of Nasthar to work on some quests, I accidentally hit the space bar while circling Kurn’s Tower. I didn’t think this would be a problem since when I was in Timorous Deep you couldn’t dismount from the griffons during flight. It turns out that the Sokokar don’t [...]

Tradeskillin Alts

Whenever I make a new toon I end up having trouble deciding which tradeskill to go with. Kalamaf used to do tailoring but that got boring and not overly useful, so I switched him to woodworking so I can eventually make some invis totems. Turns out you can’t do them until level 49 though, so [...]

Drug Busts again

Even more drug busts around here lately, last week half a dozen people got arrested and brought in on charges of traffiking, possession and other things. It’s a shame really, this is generally such a peaceful little town, but it seems like more and more often there are people in need of addiction treatment. Earlier [...]

Las Vegas homes

Heading Out of Town

Will be going out of town for a couple of days so likely won’t be doing much online gaming during that time.  Bringing the 360 with me to keep the hotel room from getting too boring.  Burnout Revenge, Bioshock and a handful of DVDs should do the trick.  We’re also borrowing a laptop so we [...]

Insurance

Some people find it’s a rather controversial subject, buying whole life insurance for their children. It’s like planning for the kids death according to some people. There’s more to it than that though, the right type of insurance policy which accumulates cash value can ensure that your child has money for college when they need [...]

Cross Faction Housing Switch

The other day I realized that my rent hadn’t been paid in a while for my apt. in South Qeynos, and my alt was out of status to go pay it. Being that it’s so far away I’ve been too lazy to go travel there to take care of it. Back when I did the [...]

New (used) speakers

After using the same set of speakers for several years now, I had a chance to upgrade tonight a very good price.  Someone hard up for money had a 5.1 set to get rid of so I went for it.  They’re bigger and more powerful than my old ones, which means they don’t fit this [...]

Acne

A common problem some people have in their teenage years, although it’s not one that I suffered, is Acne. It can range from just a few pimples for some people, to full facial redness and scarring in others. There are several causes of acne, including but not limited to: bacteria, hormones and follicle fallout. While [...]
