Raids week 59

Micki's Delirium

On Saturday I was on at exactly 9 pm (3 pm EST) and posted for baba’s raid normal. As always, after putting the lfm up, I wrote in channel which raid I had posted for and that the post was up. There seemed to be a lot of interest and we filled somewhat fast. One person asked me to save them a spot, so I ended up turning one person away… but then the person who was going to join realised they were still on timer, and I invited the one I had turned away to join us. As before I asked the party to split themselves for the puzzles, and things went quite good. The puzzles were getting done at a good pace and we didn’t really struggle at any part, except for in the last fight where I felt that people were too spread out, making it hard…

The swamp settlement of Will-o-the-Wisp

Dyson's Dodecahedron

The only major human settlement in the Swamp of Forgotten Dreams, Will-o-the-Wisp sits on the edge of the swamp on the shore of Dreaming Bay. The settlement has gone through several names, but one tavern name ended up sticking to the whole settlement because it was the primary watering hole for many travelling through the town. Now the whole settlement uses the name and, tragically, the namesake tavern burned to the ground years ago.

Will-o-the-Wisp Will-o-the-Wisp

Will-o-the-Wisp is primarily a human city, but a noticeable number of bugbears from a few families also live here. Notoriously short-tempered, they are welcome in the town militia but are treated with kid gloves most of the time and are only really accepted because they are a small minority of the populace.

High Level Gear

Citi Plays DDO

ScreenShot00383 Citifus, the outdoorsman

An Examination of Gear From Levels 16 to 20

*Note: At present, I do not have any characters within this level range, so I am forced to use screencaps from characters above level, the DDO Wiki, and other DDO sources.

*Disclaimer: I don’t know much about high level gear, so I will share what I have and call on those I know that are in the know to take what I say and expand.

You’ve gotten most of the way through your heroic levels, and it is time for to re-gear your character for that final push to get through the levels that seem to take forever. For what should you aim, where should you so they can be acquired?

The fact that there is no simple answer is an unfortunate truth.

Much like the mid levels, each build has specific gear that works better than others…

How To Properly Execute the PlayStation Classic/Mini

3rd World Geeks

We all know how great Nintendo’s line of “Classic” retro consoles are. Even I got sucked into the hype and got a Super Nintendo Classic even though the store was charging much more than the suggested retail price. I didn’t care and I still love this “mini” version of that old 16-bit console. I even wrote up a glowing review for the system because it’s an incredibly cool system and works beautifully. There was generally one thing that was in the back of my mind when I was playing it. That thought was this: When was Sony going to release a miniaturized version of the first PlayStation?

It may seem like an impossibility but, if you really think about it, making a “new” PlayStation would be a really good idea. It’s been more than two decades since Sony’s first foray into the gaming console business started and millions of people…

It’s safe to say that 2017 was a diverse year for gaming as a whole. But there are still some games left that everyone needs to play and these are some of the weirdest and amazing games you didn’t play in 2017

Farming and counting filigrees

Micki's Delirium

With the new expansion pack, Mists of Ravenloft, we also got sentient gems and filigrees that are added to the gems as augments. The filigrees drop in chests in the new quests. At first I didn’t really pay much attention to them, but talking a bit about them and Hamster telling me he put his in a spreadsheet, I realised it was close to impossible in game to get a view of how many you have. The same type stack in your augment bag, but not in crafting bank and there is no way to search for all of them and sort them. So, I gave in and did the spreadsheet thing too.

My first version was ok, but now I’ve upgraded it and sorted it, as well as improved my formulas for a more dynamic sheet. Have a look at my sheet below. This data is based on…

The Halls of Taqash Thesk

Dyson's Dodecahedron

One thing you saw in a number of classic D&D adventure modules were crazy long hallways to break parts of the dungeon apart. Part of it was so we could have more wandering monsters. Part of it was so the rest of the place wouldn’t rise up when adventurers noisily executed the guys in room 3. And part of it was so you could slip in the occasional sloping passage so characters wouldn’t realize they had transitioned between dungeon levels (and thus difficulty levels). To accommodate those long passages, this map was drawn on legal paper (8.5″ x 14″).

The Long Halls of Taqash Thesk The Long Halls of Taqash Thesk

The Halls of Taqash Thesk were mostly cut from the raw stone using disintegration spells and then masonry was added to make them feel a little less alien. Since the ascension of the goat-king Taqash to the Realms of Pleasant Evenings, the halls have been…

A Middle-Aged Geek’s Opinions of Nintendo Labo

3rd World Geeks

Nintendo once again is making the headlines with their latest innovation – Nintendo Labo. Not everyone was pleased with the announcement, and to be frank I had mixed emotions during and after watching their initial announcement about this “new way to play”. There’s certainly a lot of things that can be discussed about Nintendo Labo, so let me use my time this week to talk about it.

First of all, I can’t believe the negative reception that I’ve been seeing across the interwebs concerning the Labo. I mean, didn’t Nintendo make it clear that they were aiming at kids before they made the reveal? The Labo is not for people like you and me; this is for kids and for parents who can trust their children with an expensive gadget like the Nintendo Switch. So why all the hate, people?

Now, considering that this new innovation is for kids, I…

Raids week 58

Micki's Delirium

I’m again a bit late with this post, as raids 58 was last Saturday. Last Satuday was quite produttive in my opinion. We got a lot of raids done, and I had almost a full party the whole time. Just as last week I started with Baba’s raid. I posted at about 9 pm my time (3 pm EST) and at 9.15 I had a full party and was ready to start. I didn’t split the party but asked them to split themselves, and except for struggling with the timing on one of the puzzles (we didn’t kill the scarecrows at the same time, so they respawned one by one), the raid was quite smooth. We finished in 31 minutes.
