Stumbling into Exeter

Stumbling into Exeter

As someone who tends more towards telling fantasy stories, I honestly never expected to be into Vampire: The Masquerade as a game setting. I’m not entirely sure why I never expected this given that I’ve been fascinated by vampires since I was in high school and took a copy of Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire out of the school library on multiple occasions. Never mind that that book probably shouldn’t have even been in my high school’s library and…

A Post for Hobbit Day

A Post for Hobbit Day

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Every fandom on the internet has its own niche holidays. For fans of the film Mean Girls, it’s October 3rd (a seemingly random date, but the day that Cady remembers her crush asking her what day it was). For Star Wars fans the world over, it’s May 4th as it reminds people of an iconic phrase from the franchise (“May the Force be with you.”) And while I acknowledge some…

Thoughts on Phasmophobia

Thoughts on Phasmophobia

In my college days, I used to be super into watching shows about people hunting ghosts. Ghost Hunters and its various spinoffs, Ghost Adventures, Paranormal State… you name it, I probably watched it. I’m not really sure why I was so into them, honestly. Maybe I was intrigued by the thought of spirits lingering in places long after their physical form was gone or maybe it just had something to do with me leaning a little more witchy than some…

My Time in New World’s Open Beta

My Time in New World’s Open Beta

In the corners of the internet that I’ve been lurking in, it’s been a while since I’ve seen people hyped for a new MMO. So when Amazon Games’ New World announced an open beta event for this past weekend, I saw a good number of people excited about it. I, on the other hand, was a bit more skeptical. I will admit that a lot of my own skepticism about the game is tied to the company itself. When I think…

#SubOffTwitch and Why I Support It

#SubOffTwitch and Why I Support It

If you participate in the Twitch side of the Twittersphere (or, well, any form of social media, really), you’ve probably seen the hashtag #SubOffTwitch. This feels especially prevalent as of late given the state of things on Twitch itself, including (but not limited to) the current hate raid situation. This post isn’t about the hate raids and, in fact, will not touch on them. However, they are part of the reason why I actively support the movement to subscribe to…

So… What Now?

So… What Now?

With Blaugust wrapping last week and realizing I absolutely needed a break after creating a post a day for an entire month, you all might have noticed that I suddenly went radio silent after September 1, 2021. Truth be told, y’all, I needed a mental health break after that. Because I went that hard for an entire month, the thought of creating any future blog posts was just completely overwhelming to me. In situations like that, I’ve found it best…

A Blaugust Victory

A Blaugust Victory

While the event itself technically ended with yesterday’s post, Belghast himself declared it official today. Blaugust 2021 has officially wrapped. This is one of those moments where I once again question the decision I made to post on a daily basis last month. When you go that hard for that long, trying to convince yourself it’s okay to back off a bit is actually a bit more difficult than I initially anticipated. Logically, I know I don’t need to post…

Blaugust Wrap-Up

Blaugust Wrap-Up

Y’all, I can’t believe this day is actually here. This is it. The last “official” day of Blaugust. When this post goes up, I’ll have officially written a month’s worth of blog posts. There were a few days in the middle of the week where I seriously questioned whether or not this was a good idea. There were absolutely a few days where I considered giving up entirely because let’s face it. As a returning blogger, writing a blog post…

The End Approaches

The End Approaches

It’s really strange for me to think that Blaugust is coming to a close. I’m relieved, but a bit anxious about it at the same time. When you’ve been doing something like this every day for an entire month — and speaking of, I legitimately cannot believe it’s been almost a whole month and I feel like this is another point in the favor of time just being fake — the idea of suddenly not doing that same thing is…

From the Beginning…

From the Beginning…

I’ve been playing and livestreaming The Elder Scrolls Online consistently since 2018. Players who had been playing the game longer than I had were eagerly anticipating the release of the next expansion at the time, Summerset. I, on the other hand, was still exploring Morrowind. Since then, I’ve played through the majority of the content that ESO has to offer players. I’ve met and fallen in love with so many NPCs on my Vestige’s journey across Tamriel, saving it again…
