Re: Nimrod

To dedicate so much of your time to building something for the joy of others is true kindness and selflessness. You've got my love, my thanks (*gimli voice* and my axe!)

Re: Ongull Adasson

My current character is the sort of rural, folklore-loving type that no doubt would have grown up on Ongull stories, so this project really captured my imagination. Great work, Frigga! Here's another, slightly shorter, submission: The Three Fishermen & The Wizard Three aging fishermen had travelled ...

Here's my take on it for the contest, sort of a "tall-tale" style story. I got a little carried away. Hope you enjoy!

Re: Crafting Requests

I've played both an orc and a human woodsman(or woodsorc)and there's a significant advantage to how the human sphere is set up (especially for off-peak players like me). You can go a couple of rooms out of the Utterby gates and the rooms are set up so you can forage immediately for copses; in the or...

Re: Witch King of Angmar

First Merry stabs the Witch King with a "magic Numenorean dagger" that he finds in the Barrow-Downs in the first book, it basically has enchantments on it to fight the forces of evil that somehow break the magic Sauron uses to keep the Witch King in Middle-Earth. Eowyn then comes in for the killing ...

Re: Crafting Requests

The starting woodcraft skill "scout copse-for-tree" (the craft to get a wooden log) is quite frustrating (as an orc woodcrafting character) because I've combed so many forest rooms north, south, east and west from the orc camp and haven't found any of the copse objects anywhere to be cut down. I've ...

Re: Orcish Sphere Declining?

I recently made an orc character and I've found way more roleplay (especially proactive roleplay leaders) in this sphere than in the human sphere. Its a noticably smaller playerbase, but the players that are there are really great at starting and including everyone in their RP.

Re: leatherworking and you

I would guess you wait for the tanning square of leather to morph into the finished square of leather. This is correct! First you brine and wait. Then you tan/scud and wait. And after about 12 hours of tanning, you'll have a ready-to-use square of leather! Ahh awesome, thanks guys! I thought it wou...

Re: Star Citizen

It looks cool but its kinda scary spending so much RL money on a ship when you don't really know how its gonna handle in-game. I'd hate to spend like $80 on one ship and then realise for like $20 more I could have had a ship thats twice as OP.

I thought I'd start a thread so we can share our various photoshop projects / people can request stuff photoshopped for them.

Re: Fantasy Book Recommendations!

Any fans of R Scott Bakkers Prince of Nothing trilogy? Thats been my fave fantasy series for a while (as well as the sequel books). If ASOIaF is politics + fantasy its fair to call Prince of Nothing philosophy + fantasy.
