During last year’s Blaugust, I wrote an entire post about my struggles just attempting to play this MMO. There were things about it I genuinely liked, but more about it that I wasn’t a huge fan of. All of that together made me want to give up…

A PvE Player’s Guide to Elder Scrolls Online’s Alliance War

The Book of Travels: A Tiny Multiplayer Online Game?

The Book of Travels: A Tiny Multiplayer Online Game?

Book of Travels is a game that has been on my radar ever since I first heard about the Kickstarter that launched in October 2019. Created by Might and Delight (creators of Shelter and Meadow), Book of Travels is a tiny multiplayer online RPG with roleplay elements built into it from character creation and a unique way of communicating with other players. And I would be lying if I tried to convince you all that I wasn’t excited about this…
