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…
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
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!
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!
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
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 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
For months, I've been dreaming about making a tree house for my elf (Kelari, actually) rogue in Rift. I had chosen the Stone Grove already, but something didn't "click". It has a huge big tree in the middle and is just asking for a tree house to be built. Yet, nothing happened. I started by … Continue reading Rift Dimensions: Tree House in Moonshade Pools
Regular readers may know that I am from Germany and to be even more precise, I am from Hessen (best state in Germany, of course - well, at least geographically, since we're in the middle and can reach all the other parts of Germany relatively easily). We have a few traditional dishes here (and apple … Continue reading Today’s Recipe: (Hessian) Green Sauce
Folk Tale has been in development and in Steam Early Access for a long time already and this is where a lot of the negative reviews are coming from. The developer, GamesFoundry, has steadily been working on the game and there have been regular updates (game updates as well as communication!) in all that time … Continue reading Folk Tale: Where is it now? (March 2017)
