And the Winner Is.....

In a very nonsurprising close of the poll, the voice of the wizarding population has been heard. Pets were the number one answer by a landslide as far as a desired display option for one's home. Swords came in second, not close by any means, but second. Who knows, maybe in the future I'll be able to let Princess Zoe out to run all by her beloved two-headed self. Hmm...

I am certain each and every one of you has a favorite pet. Leave me a comment with your favorite pet. It would be interesting to find out what pet tops the list...

My friends - if I did not or do not answer you in game, do forgive me. I am having either computer issues or account troubles, and the game is not working correctly for me on any of my characters. I have names disappearing and reappearing on my friends list among a long list of other things. That said, I just wanted to let you know before anyone gets annoyed with me. Thank you kindly -

Wow What a Night

Wow what a night. I log on, anticipating another round of "whatever shall I do, I am sooooooo bored," and I must say my evening was anything but boring! First, a round of farming with the Friendly Necromancer - the poor man just needs his boots, and that Kraysys, he just doesn't want to play fair even after being slaughtered time and time again. Even the luck of the pink goddess of death was not enough to turn the tide this time he he. So I crashed the party upon request and a few of my most excellent friends dropped in for the fun as well. Reed NightSword and Antonio DragonFlame came to lend their wizardly aid - fun to be had by all! Kraysys and evil spider died time and time again at various levels of slaughter. There were even references to pirates! Just fun I tell ya! Still no luck even after a spectactular hit by none other than the necromancer himself. Maybe next time...

Nice hit! And yet, the dragon remains stubborn... So, after allowing Kraysys a short reprieve from constant death, I set off for more adventuring. Spent some time working on my noob life wizard with dear friend Valerian NightBringer. We rocked Cyclops avenue and I am afraid it will never be the same! The trolls will run and the sight of us! After that, had to answer invites to see houses. First was Reed NightSword's DragonSpyre mansion. Had to go see the newly scored fountain. All I have to say is "I MUST HAVE ONE!" He also set a very nice little trap in the doorway that catches anyone who chances through unawares. Tricky, my friend, very tricky! So a midnight, or rather 3 a.m., pool party was called.
Chilling in the awesome fountain with Sean EmeraldWeaver, Reed NightSword, and Antonio DragonFlame. Lovely way to spend an evening. After this, we had an invite to both Sean and Antonio's houses. The first picture above was taken at Antonio's by the way. Most of what happened after this was a blur as I was incredibly sleepy lol. I did have a duel of wits with most excellent friend Kyle DuskThorn, a.k.a. Ice Man. Fell out of my chair laughing at the death and ice references - trust me, you would just groan - it got pretty silly. Talked shop with Sean for a bit, and had to call it a night.

The point is, I am ever so thankful for friends who strive to keep me busy and happy when I am online! Goddess of death is not someone you want bored :) Oh, a few more random pics of the last few nights events - craziness I tell you!
Jail? Are you kidding me? Who puts the goddess of death in jail! Someone not attached to his soul! Revenge will be mine!

I have also done a lot more pvp lately thanks to Reed NightSword and Valerian NightBringer. Unfortunatley I do not have a screen shot with Valerian, but here is Reed - storm lord ready to rock the arena again!

Thank you my dear friends for keeping me busy and happy! You're all ever so fantastic! Until my next adventure, Countess is signing off -

Ok I have a bone to pick here. I have, somewhere along the way, become a collector of swords among other items. Farming, farming, and more farming. It takes a lot of work to acquire some of those items! However, they just rattle around in my backpack where no one can see them! Would it not be TOO cool to be able to display them all in your house? I guess you know where I'd vote on my poll lol. I'd like to be able to display backpack items. And I'm also one of those "I love my house" people too. I've worked hard on my house! I would simply love to be able to have a wall of weaponry in my home! Total bragging rights - come and watch the sparkles :). Speaking of sparkles, you know how you can dye your outfits? I would love to be able to change the color of the sparkles a sword gives off to match my outfit. Guess I'm full of ideas today... So, tell me, anybody else out there wishing for a display option? Ooh ooh ooh maybe swords and armor too! Hmm...

Crazy Meet and Greet

Wow. And I didn't know you could cram so many people into one area lol. Absolute craziness. Nice to finally meet some of you though - and I am sorry I missed others. I kinda have my doubts anyone was actually there to meet me but hey I got to meet people I needed to put a face to a name with!
The lineup of bloggers. At least I am easy to see as the pink necromancer lol. Although I cannot stand out quite as much as Thomas there lol.

My computer was running so slowly at this point that I didn't catch much and I certainly couldn't find any of the people I was looking for. Still, tons of fun.

The run to Malistaire following the meet and greet with the dragon master and Sean EmeraldWeaver.
*Sigh* Lots of fun - thanks all!

The Pink Necromancer and Other Stuff

Recently, I Amanda PixieWhisper, grandmaster necromancer, was dared to dye my lovely malistaire robe and the rest of my outfit entirely pink. Who dared me? I'll give you one guess - trust me its an easy one. That's right, good old DragonBlade. As the picture above shows, I took the dare. I even equipped my sparkly pink sword to match lol. However, I refuse to stuff Jasper into my backpack - he is my status symbol and when people see the all pink, at least they also see Jasper and recognize! I refuse to bring the unicorn out lol. So, tell me, am I the first pink necromancer? Seems a little girly for the goddess of death, but I actually think I like it. So there ya go - I've gone pink.

On another note, I am incredibly frustrated. Maybe its all of this combined with the fact that I've had more than my share of disappointments lately. I've attained my level, my gear, my wraith. I still have lots of quests to do to complete the game this second time around, but I am struggling with even bothering to do them. What is the point (beyond being a perfectionist that can't stand to leave things unfinished) when I no longer earn xp and have no chance at advancing? No new levels, no new spells. And to top it, I've never been one for questing alone. Blah! I am sure I am not the only one frustrated with the fact that Grizzleheim did not fulfill these expectations. Now, dont' get me wrong, I simply adore Grizzleheim! The ambiance, the atmosphere, everywhere you look is just cool! I could just stand there and enjoy Grizzleheim for a long time. I look at the wolves and visions of the movie Underworld come to me lol. Visually, it was very well done. There are some nice new features. The teleport stones rock (ha ha). I was disappointed that Grizzleheim did not continue at the level 50 point coming in after DragonSpyre. And as far as gameplay goes, I was disappointed. I am SO glad I got to battle the ravens and Jotun before they made them easier. I can understand weakening Malistaire back down, but I wish they'd left the rest alone. The Oni battle was epic! It was nice to have a challenge, especially one that challenged an entire team. But honestly, grandmasters being able to finish the new world in a day or two? Disappointing. C'est la vie - oh well. And so the pink goddess of death signs off - see ya around the spiral.

27,861 Take That Oyotomi!

First, I must apologize for dropping off the face of the earth for a couple of weeks here. Life just got crazy! Had to choose bettwen time to play or time to blog, and I'm afraid I chose to play :). But I'm back after much prodding from the dragon master!

My first item of note involves the above picture. I recently, as a test, decided to try and setup a big hit just to see what I could do. Oyotomi was the unlucky recipient of my wrath. After 13 assorted traps, blades, feints, curses, etc... I managed a hit of 27,861. Not too bad! I was really quite pleased, especially considering the fact that I was missing one hex and a blade. Yay me! Death Rules! Oh, and Autumn, you will be interested to know that, even after that hit, Oyotomi still didn't give up anything good.

I scored the Hydra statue from Vika Markmaker in crystal grove - that made my day! Think I'll have to go after the helephant stat next...

Finally, after much determination and lots of work, I got my coveted scarecrow spell, my darling wraith, whom I named Jasper, and I gained the title of Grandmaster! Ah what a wonderful feeling! I had to take a moment to don my level fifty gear that I could FINALLY wear! Here - this will make the dragon master jealous hehe - my malistaire drake ebon robe, spiderkeeper's darkshroud, kraysys boots of retreat, soulsingers soulsword, gurtok mortis steel, soulsingers blade, and my grimcaster's doomfaring deck - dang am I lucky or what?!? And that's just it, luck was on my side lol. Took a break from Dragonspyre and headed over to check out Grizzleheim. Love the look of Grizzleheim! Fun to have something new, though it didn't last very long. Two days and its finished already. Oh well, back to DragonSpyre I guess!

That sums up the last couple of weeks in a nutshell. I realize this is more of an information post than anything fun, so I shall strive to make the next one that much better, and again I apologize for disappearing! See you all soon -
