  1. I'll be replying today to the posts waiting on me. In the time I haven't been working on posts I've been thinking about some of the future storylines for my characters and working on some ideas for that.
  2. I love that show. Uncle Iroh is my favorite and his story in Tales from Ba Sing Se was so heart wrenching. Such a great show.
  3. I went wizard not knowing one of the first companions is also a wizard. Which isn't a big deal. If that's too many wizards I can always hire and create a new character. Or I'm sure there are more companions than slots in the party so I can jettison him later. But I'm looking forward to actually getting to play beyond the opening. I also went normal on the difficulty since I haven't ever played a cRPG.
  4. That's true, and I preferred the old way myself. I did see a lot of people complaining about the old lootboxes, though, enough that I think we are in the minority. Anecdotally, my brother and a friend were both not as lucky with drops under the old boxes and didn't build up as much money as I did, and they like the new boxes more than I do.
  5. It may not seem like it but the changes they made actually give you more items. The downside is you hardly get duplicates which means less money to buy the things you want. But the gold and purple drop rates are the same. That Battlefront lootbox thing is stupid as hell. People definitely took the wrong lessons from the success of Overwatch. Yeah it has loot boxes but it's purely cosmetic and doesn't change the game at all. Whereas having to pay to win is super ****ty. And here I was looking forward to Battlefront 2: 2.
  6. Hey Czar and Witch I know you both are waiting on replies from me in pms and I should be able to get to those soon. I'm just wrapping up some major assignments this weekend and the early part of next week but after that my schedule should clear up.
  7. I wonder if he's in the gang at this point. Though it doesn't seem like we'll play as him anyway but I'm definitely excited if he comes back. I'm excited to get to this. I just started a game with a wizard but haven't touched it in a couple weeks because of school and work. But I'm really looking forward to diving in sometime soon. Definitely unique, but I liked it a lot. And the fact the author didn't write any other books for a few decades was interesting as well. I haven't read the sequel but I'm not sure I want to. I liked the first book quite a bit and I don't want to ruin that if the sequel isn't good.
  8. New Red Dead Redemption II trailer. I'm so excited for this game. Too bad we still have at least half a year before it comes out.
  9. I imagine they're working on it. Given how familiar they are with their engine and Skyrim in general, and the fact that they're bringing in outside contractors for these 'add ons,' I wouldn't be surprised if they have the bulk of their team at work on TES 6. It was probably delayed by the PS4 and Xbox one and Switch ports, but since those are mostly finished now, I bet they're focused on the next big game. Could be they're trying to milk as much money out of Skyrim as possible so they can fund a longer development cycle and make their biggest game yet. Or maybe they'll just keep milking Skyrim for the rest of our lives.
  10. I'm open to the possibility of the creation club, in that it's a chance to provide more dlc or high level mod style add ons I can't otherwise get, since I'm on console. But the first set of paid mods for F4 sucked and I'm going to wait to see what else they roll out for Skyrim before I decide whether or not it's worth it. The code in the beta has this in it, according to Skyrimmods ok Reddit. - ccBGSSSE002-ExoticArrows.esl - ccBGSSSE003-Zombies.esl - ccBGSSSE004-RuinsEdge.esl - ccBGSSSE006-StendarsHammer.esl - ccBGSSSE007-Chrysamere.esl - ccBGSSSE010-PetDwarvenArmoredMudcrab.esl - ccBGSSSE014-SpellPack01.esl - ccBGSSSE019-StaffofSheogorath.esl - ccMTYSSE001-KnightsoftheNine.esl - ccQDRSSE001-SurvivalMode.esl Which doesn't seem like a lot, honestly. That spell pack would have to be really good for me to pull the trigger on this, since the other stuff just seems like weapons and armor and that's not worth paying for.
  11. Some rumors say the Frostfall author is behind this survival mode, which if that's the case, gives me hope consoles will get the camping and campfire stuff as well, and maybe cloaks. But so far survival mode alone hasn't convinced me the Skyrim creation club stuff will be any better than Fallout's
  12. https://bethesda.net/en/article/5lz4Q7F4li6kwKmakkgWww/skyrim-survival-mode-coming-soon?utm_medium=bitly&utm_source=SocialMedia Consoles get another mod that's been around forever, except we have to pay for it. It's nice Skyrim is getting this but this creation club thing still feels greedy.
  13. I also liked the Cleaver-land part, and how developed his tribal culture feels. It really is cool having a full fledged tribal pov since we don't have many of those in the roleplay. I look forward to seeing what happens once he reaches civilization, especially with him being a Reaver.
  14. I don't think the post needs to be deleted, possibly just edited. I took some of the description to be because of his pained state and he was delirious. Though water likely wouldn't be a problem imo.
  15. Lubbock right now, but growing up I lived all over West Texas
  16. Cabrito my dude. Probably my favorite thing about living in Texas is the BBQ, Tex-Mex, Mexican food we have. And cabrito combines BBQ and Mexican food, so it's a win win!
  17. It was always Boldir in my heart
  18. Ahhhhh you changed you profile picture. Goodbye Boldir, hello new doctor.
  19. I think what we have here are two silence spells. One cuts of magicka and thus prevents casting, which as Witch said, wouldn't work on a thu'um. Then there's the silence spell that literally prevents talking, which seems like it would work on the thu'um. While that spell would likely be pretty easily cast, I think to be able to silence the thu'um in that way would be a very difficult task akin to using the silence spell that cuts of magicka. I think we can probably have variations as far as strength of the 'muffle silence' spell Witch mentioned. In High Rock the Thalmor used a similar silence curse that prevented someone from talking about a subject. But to just stop someone from talking for a few minutes seems like it would be pretty easy. So I'm thinking the 'muffle silence' spell has different variations of strength, only the strongest of which can silence a thu'um. While the silence spell that prevents magic casting is more like a cancel magic spell and not really a silence one. I think gradations of the spells works better, since that's basically what destruction magic is. Varying strengths of elemental manipulation. It would make sense that other types of magic would have different gradations of strength to their spells as well.
  20. I like some stuff from Daggerfall since it's our only look at High Rock in the games, besides ESO. But I know there are several books in the game that don't reappear. One about Faeries and another about Nymphs I know for sure aren't in other games. So while I sometimes use stuff that only appeared in Daggerfall, I do think in general it's a good idea to take its lore with a grain of salt.
  21. On all the new posts (Czar, Celan, and Doc)
  22. Gotcha. Still, Yornar did get stabbed and that seems to cover the potential to die. Not to mention he's vulnerable to those who are close to him. As Witch has said already
  23. Is this what you meant Celan said, Colonel? Because I don't think weakness is the same as potentially dying, which as Doc mentioned, potential death isn't necessary. Though weakness I think we all cover pretty well
  24. Not to mention the mechanics of the spell, requiring large amounts of magicka and, while working at a distance, still having a range would mean it's not all powerful. Just very powerful, but no more so than any of the other powerful mages and their spells, or shouts. I think we shouldn't hew too close to the games for magic considering how limiting that would be, and how boring. And this spell in particular could easily be something Krojun created, a combination telekinesis and transmutation (or similar metal alteration spell). Since spell crafting is a thing
