I just discovered the Gnome starting area on Saturday.  I was running through the desert minding my own business.  All of a sudden, a shadow appears over me.  I'm thinking it was just another graphics glitch, but I looked up to see if I was under a big tree or something. 

What I saw was this giant griffon (with rider) flying away.  Apparently, the griffon cast the shadow when it got over me.  Anyway, following it with my eyes, the rider was heading to this enormous structure built into the side of a mountain.  It looked way too cool to pass up, so I ran over to check it out.  I've been there ever since just exploring.  It is the Gnome's main city.  I went to a cavern inside the city the gnomes call the "deepdark".  There is a castle there that belongs to the Underking.  Very cool looking place!


hehe, its a cool place - I have a gnome who started in there...rather cool - and yes, THIS is what I love about Vanguard - its so friggin' huge, and not "Oblivion huge"(not dissing obli here, dont worry), but with lots and lots of different stuff to see and explore...and I'm an explorer by heart I think :-)

Oh, one more thing, if anyone is interested, Reemul and I have joined a pretty nice guild, who is more or less mostly American so it should suit lots of you people interested. House Andronnai - run by a grandmother, if you can believe it :-D

Anyways, its a cool guild, with fun people, so try talking with them if you want, or look around for me or Reemul in the GT Chat channel :-)

I got fed up with the crafting (big surprise there), diplomacy is still worthless (and probably always will be) and lost interest in the questing/adventuring. Plus my old characters were a different server than everyone else, and I wasn't thrilled with the new character I made on the GT server. Bottom line is that I'm out for now, but it was nice visiting. I could always come back in the future.



hmm..got a mount at lvl 2, some 12 slot saddlebags for it as well, and I'm lvl 5 diplomacy? not that useless, in my opinon.

Anyways, like every other game, the game isnt for everyone... I even enjoy the crafting...so far at least - the rewards are pretty cool from it.

Yes, it was. Though you had to be a PvP'er to hold that opinion. PvE'ers would definitely like WoW over SWG. PvP'ers who experienced base assaults that would lasts hours a day for multiple days would probably tend to agree with me.

what are people who played that game on? because I get tired after a few hours of playing...

anyways - I'm excited - Bioware makes excellent games, has a solid foundation to so from, and has a good grasp of how to engage players IMO.

wait...

Tyranid Hive Fleets first release spores on the worlds they are about to consume.

there are times, when I cant help but laugh at us all here...I mean...we state things like the above as a well known fact...

7818  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Vanguard - free month for inactive accounts on: July 16, 2008, 04:27:07 PM
So, today my little gnome warrior decided he should check out the surrounding country side of Tursh, the village of the tall people.

He was told to go check up on two sisters who had set up camp just outside the city, and promptly rode out there. As he got there, he saw a small assembly of people, including one of the tall pointy-eared people.

He tried talking to Eldor as he called himself a bit, and the guy was obviously some sort of lunatic. He'd been exciled by his queen, and claimed enourmous powers. Jeevers (My gnome) laughed at that, and said "bring it"...after which the lunatic pointy-eye got insane, and started hammering the poor gnome. Jeevers decided that he was going to get the heck out of there, and ran away with all his fastest speed towards the city, and he hoped, salvation...but no, the darned lunatic kept following, yelling doom and dread all the while, and after running for 25 minutes, trough two villages, 4 crazed orcs, and across the same river 5 times, the pointy-ear caught up with Jeevers, and promptly killed him...

Okay, okay, so he DID have amazing powers...who knew.

Anyways, after getting back in shape, and cautiosly going back to the encampment, where the Emo elf appearently was satisfied with killing Jeevers once, he tried talking with the sisters...one of them said that something strange had happened in the area, thus the pretty pretty lights close by... Jeevers decided to go take a look.

So, with the eyes of the lunatic pointy-ear on him, he left towards the pretty light. (pic1)

After getting a bit closer, and noticing the maddened fairies there, and the size of the large rock that appearently had fallen from the sky, and the tale of "A beast that lurks" in the ancient sunk temple in the middle of the lake, he decided this was for another day (pic2)

Anyways, the adventures of Jeevers are incredibly fun, and he'd love to have more company to explore the incredible rich and vast world of Vanguard!

btw, huge flying griffons named silvertalon doesnt take kindly to arrows - now you know!

7819  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New Version of Dwarf Fortress on: July 16, 2008, 04:15:05 PM
I agree with Turtle - the game needs some sort of UI that works...the game makes little sense now as it is...at least, for non-hardcore ascii fans.

there might be the greatest game ever in there somewhere, but I just cant bear to play it the way it looks and works right now.

well, its a bit strange...they are making an easy game even more easy? I mean, they already did the level 20 and upwards a lot easier to do, and now this?

of course, its probably because they want people at endgame content I guess

Hi people,

just a little heads up, that the Isle of Dawn, kinda like the trial island in EQII, is now on the test server - and damn it looks fine...

THe new character models will be live on the test servers within a few weeks as well...looking very good for vanguard now as I see it.

The isle of dawn will be a 2 - 2.5 gb trial download sometime in august for players wanting to try it out :-)

hehe, just kidding - its really cool how much you like the game, and you ARE one of the few people I've met in-game a few times :-)

About house Andronnai- you cant go wrong with these guys - so cool, and all ages, the guildmistress is a grandmother, and some of the people have their kids, and spouses playing with them - really cool, familystyle (a trite overused word about guilds, but this one is REALLY spot-on) guild, that enjoys helping newcomers and oldtimers alike - I've had a lot of fun with them.

anyways, because of this, Reemul and I joined a guild, House Andronnai, a very very nice, and very mature, fun guild - I'm sure there's room for others who are interested.

I Just dont believe in the possiblity of a GT/OO guild anymore - sorry...

I honestly dont think I've seen a single person here saying "hmm, you'r right, thats the way it is - this debate has enlightened me"....

Are you all that superintelligent-never-wrong-people?

It's really interesting, because why do you post in places like these then, if you dont want to be challenged, to learn new things, to understand, to grasp things, to perhaps *gasp* learn things?

We are taught (or were, when I was a tadger) that human history is a progression in fits and starts toward ever-greater freedom and democracy, liberalism and populism. Our national mythos holds that America is the inevitable pinnacle of this progression...and implies that our duty is to spread it through the world. This assumption is seldom stated openly, but it underlies elementary history education -- the same assumption that puts humans at the apex of physical evolution.

It's possible that these underlying assumptions have changed in the decades since I was schooled.

The US was founded with soaring rhetoric and noble principles. It has seldom lived up to them, but in most Americans' minds our country is a force for good -- truth, justice, and the American way. Our current administration's most lasting damage is not to our image with the rest of the world, but rather to our own faith in the American mythos.

thats what I was afraid of. Sounds more or less like indoctrination which is dangerous, but thankfully I also believe that people are taught to think for themselves in the US, thus making them able to see beyond the roote learnings of youth.

With all due respect -- everyone has the right to believe that their stuff is the best.     I believe the car I'm getting is the best.    I believe my dog is the greatest.    I certainly tell people I'm married to the best woman in the world, and that my children are the best kids anyone could get.

It's no different with country, and hell fing yes I'm arrogant when it comes to America.    You shouldn't take offense to that at all.    You should go out there and say your country is the best, and I'll give you the big thumbs up.....    thumbsup

sure you have that right, as I have the right to call arrogance extreme, when I see it. And I dont believe my country is the "best", I believe in people, not countries - unless you'r a hivemind, there's no such thing as a unified and equal country whose people are all the same and supergreat people.

Yeah, CSL likes to piss all over everyone.  It's how he makes himself feel awesome.

Oh and stop being so sensitive Razgon. I doubt that if whatever country it is that you're from (Norway? Finland? Sweden? I can't remember) had established the foundations of modern democracy you'd be pretty proud too.  Not to mention it's the weekend celebrating said document. 

When the annual windmill and wooden shoes holiday comes around feel free to post a thread!  I promise Drazzil won't post that there are alternative means for mashing corn or wheat and that Nike is also a valid model of shoe maker.

I'm from Denmark, and we dont wear wooden shoes. And no, you people didnt establish the foundations of modern democracy - sorry to bust your bubble there.

And I'm not really being sensitive, I call things as I see them - isnt that what this forum is all about? Congrats on the document though, its a nice document, would be equally nice of people lived up to it, right?

I can actually make a grand document as well, doesnt make me a better person though..

actions, not words, are what counts in my world.

edit: and hey, the mere fact that you think my country's only contribution to the world, especially compared to the greatness of the US are "windmills and woodens shoes" kinda proves my point.

I guess that a mostly US based forum is the wrong place to question these things though...to bad, really...
