I’m back!

I managed to play Rift this morning. Just for half an hour, but it felt so good to use my left hand again. I still don't have a diagnosis, but all this "rest your wrist, don't use it!" was garbage since it probably/very likely never even was a tenosynovitis. All results so far say that … Continue reading I’m back!

Spoils of this year’s summer sale

Same problem every Steam sale: So many games, so many sales, but still neither enough money nor enough time to get and play all the games on my wishlist. :p I sorted them by priority and then in the end, ignored that priority anyway and got games lower on my list or games that hadn't … Continue reading Spoils of this year’s summer sale

Secret World (Legends) – Relaunch & Headstart

Secret World Legends has launched with its head start for owners of the original Secret World on Friday. I had been looking forward to this day, but unfortunately, my left hand is still injured. This means that I couldn't play much yet, but I did create my character, at least. I decided not to read … Continue reading Secret World (Legends) – Relaunch & Headstart

Playing with handicapped hands…

My hands haven't really gotten better. In fact, the pain has worsened (tenosynivitis). It's got to let me to look at speech recognition software and I did get a programme for German, which will hopefully help me get my work done. However, it is only for German. I found an online website using Google for … Continue reading Playing with handicapped hands…

Rift Dimension building project: Tempest Island IV

I switched to different projects thinking I've run out of ideas how to continue with this dimension, but in the end, I always get some ideas for little things I can add. I've made a list now and am slowly working through it. Comparing yourself with others is always a bad idea, because there will … Continue reading Rift Dimension building project: Tempest Island IV

Get the Rift expansion for free!

Rift changed their expansion's name to "Prophecy of Ahnket" (due to some legal issues with a charity) and used this moment to start a little promotion: Everybody who logs in from now until May 14 gets the newest expansion for free! After that, you will have to pay for the expansion again, but it will … Continue reading Get the Rift expansion for free!

Rift Dimensions: Hey look! Another dimension project!

I didn't really continue with my tree house project, but I decided to start yet another one. The thing is that I've been playing my Primalist more recently. She's still tiny (level 22), but she wants a place to call home. While walking through my storage dimension that's filled with buildings only, I took a … Continue reading Rift Dimensions: Hey look! Another dimension project!

Back in Gloamwood

So here I was, ready to rant about how old zones in MMORPGs somehow always give me nostalgic feelings and how I almost always prefer some old zone over newer expansion ones when I felt like I had a deja-vu. A quick google search confirmed my suspicion: I already ranted about this! Even worse, I … Continue reading Back in Gloamwood

Late to the (PvP) party?

Trion hosted a PvP-focused Rift livestream on Friday* and I realized that I only played a handful of PvP games in Rift and that was years ago already. Thankfully, there is no open world PvP (there is a PvP server but I don't play on that one). On the contrary, both factions can play together … Continue reading Late to the (PvP) party?

Rift: How to get your Rask pet

Rift and Atlas Reactor started a new cross-promotion where you can get a Rask companion pet in Rift by playing Atlas Reactor. If you've never played Atlas Reactor, it's very very easy: Play 5 games in Atlas Reactor. If you don't like PvP, you can play against PvE enemies by clicking on "vs bots" and … Continue reading Rift: How to get your Rask pet
