AoC

AoC, some days later

Age of Conan is entirely too much fun. I really hadn't expected that. I am currently playing a Conqueror, the closest here to a Paladin (once I invested all my feat points in augmenting the defensive stance). I just could not get myself to continue trafficking with demons, even in a game. It is a bad habit. (As opposed to killing people with a two-handed spiky club. Yeah.)

The dirge-like music in the Cimmerian wilderness is hair-raisingly beautiful, to the point where I avoid combat to just enjoy the music. I intend to buy the music CD when it becomes available.

I solo exclusively, which may sound strange with a class like that, but it is quite viable. This is the best MMORPG for soloing in my experience, though this may change later in the game. I am pretty sure I will never find out. Even if it is fun, it is not meaningful enough to take up a large part of my time, nor to last for a long time. After all, I have more important things to do with my life. Like guiding my sims to a happy and fulfilling old age...

Southern Norway is like a tinderbox

The lawn is yellow, and so is the neighbor's. It is not dead yet, but at least I don't have to mow it. The forest is still green, so I have seen worse. This is pretty much routine here, and is usually followed by a wet summer, but people usually forget this over the course of the winter.

Even so, I am not as happy as usual about the railway being only a hundred yards or so from the house. Each year, sparks from the trains start fires along the railway, although usually in the wilderness. Then again, most of Norway is wilderness.
