FFXIV Screenshot dump

So, for any of you who have been wondering about what my character looks like, I have a treat for you. Here are some random screenshots for you guys to see what he looks like.

I have been playing FFXIV as Khalja for an entire two years now I made him back in 2015 and have been playing on and off ever since. He’s my baby, I love him dearly. I play on Balmung so if you see me online say hi! And because of cross-server party finder, if you want to play with me and you’re on the same data center as Balmung that’s totally fine with me. (Btw, Khalja is the tanned one with the black hair. The red haired character is his mate/husband, Iman.) There’s a long story for the two of them that I won’t go into detail on this post!

ALL ABOARD THE STORMBLOOD HYPE TRAIN

Just as I have said, I do play FFXIV. A lot of us are really excited these days, and we have a big reason why- FFXIV is getting a new expansion this year! Stormblood has new places, new raids, and new shenanigans to get into. The level cap is getting raised from 60 to 70, and there will be two new classes (Samurai and Red Mage) and people are just generally excited about it.

FFXIV holds a dear place in my heart. I started playing it a few years ago when I first moved to Oklahoma. I played on and off, then ended up having to quit completely. I didn’t get far with the first character I ever made. Enough about that! I’m not here to talk about me. I’m here to tell you all why you should be playing this game if you aren’t all ready.

ALL THE CLASSES ON ONE CHARACTER!

Now if you’re an MMO junkie, you like to try at least all the classes on your game at least once. Well on games that don’t have class switching, you have to make a NEW character for each and every class you want to try. Not on FFXIV. You can unlock and try out all the classes on a single character. It makes for easier management from what I can tell you.

Another reason you want to play: ABUNDANT CONTENT

When I say this game is full of stuff to do, I mean it. It has a crap ton of quests to get absorbed in, and you won’t be bored with them if you love questing just as much as I do. I love the story, even though a lot of it is typical and I have seen it before because I’m a fan of Square Enix’s Final Fantasy Series (I haven’t touched XV yet, waiting for the price to drop because I’m a cheapskate) and the biggest parts of their games for me have always been the stories.

Expect to see more rambling about Stormblood the sooner it approaches.

Umbrella Corporation

Just wanted to share another of my favorite AMVs with everyone. It has a premise that is relevant to my blog being all about Science Fiction and Fantasy. Imagine a future in which a corporation manages to control how much it rains so they can sell more umbrellas. Yeah, that’s the story. I hope you guys like me sharing it with you. It’s by Nostro, quite the popular AMV maker on YouTube. Check out their other AMVs!

Life was kicking my butt

So dear readers, it has been a while since I last posted here. I was working for a while in a call center doing tech support. The mess was so stressful for me that I had to stop. While it wasn’t the customers or anything, it was the company. They put all the new people on the worst schedule there is, regardless of numbers. Even shift bids don’t help. I got irritated with the fact that I was too tired to do anything else but work. It had to go. So now, I’m out here putting out applications and trying to find freelance work, but that’s not going to well. I’m trying to put my name out here.

I want to refer people to my website here. It is difficult without having anything officially published. I know people aren’t easily willing to take chances on a new person, but everyone has to start somewhere and I do hope that one day I will land that first gig for a client.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Hello fellow writers and readers! I just want to say happy new year to all of you. While last year was really really rough I’m glad the new one has finally arrived. I’m happy, I’m excited, and you should be too.

I have some new ideas that I’m going to start working on as well as my current projects. One of these new ideas is about a young man whose necromancy accidentally causes a zombie apocalypse in my hometown of Detroit, where it then spreads to the entire state of Michigan and causes the whole state to be quarantined while they try to figure out what has people coming back from the dead.

I just want to wish you all a happy new year!

Happy writing everybody!

It’s finally over

I just want to say that for this day’s music post, I’m going to exclaim one thing: NO MORE CHRISTMAS MUSIC!

Now I get there are people out there who love the stuff, but I don’t. Mainly because of retail. Retail will make you hate everything you used to love. To get back on topic of a song for today, I’m going to bring to you another of my favorites by Caravan Palace:

Lone digger. The meaning I get out if it is exactly what the music video details- it talking about how people go to clubs looking for someone to hook up with because they’re lonely, hence why the title is lone digger, and why the words “lonely digging” are in the song.

Here are the lyrics with a handy link to the music video – warning, there is blood. Lots of blood. Blood splattering on a stripper. Is it as awesome as it sounds? Check it out for yourself!
