As peeps I'm sure are aware, summer holidays bring about an odd change to the geek in all of us, and we are drawn to the outside and other distractions, away from the artificial glow of a monitor  or for some the sweat of being in room at 30 degrees plus with the PC and User gasping for air just ain't fun no more 

I have been online / sat in front of my PC very minimally these last few weeks, mainly due to RL distractions, issues, and occasionally nice weather ; Hubby and I are also trying to move home this year... so far without much sucess. >.> so we will likely keep this very minimal in-game pattern until about Sept / Oct time. Mostly likely online on Sundays if RL permits.

RL has conspired to keep me out of game recently as well. Truth be told I've had a lot of **** going on and not having a great a deal of fun. However I may *crosses fingers* be coming out the other side of that now. I hope people are going to stick around once FTP comes in - I personally am not a fan of FTP but I do love this game and am not planning on going anywhere.

Once I get RL back under control I am going to try and get somekind of RP event going. (yes I know you've heard it all before )

Just been on a trip myself, and probably won't be much online in SWTOR in the near future. So I've stopped the sub from renewing (runs out at the 23rd I think). Instead of resubbing, if I get the time for an MMO, I might try out GW2 instead. Or if RL keeps getting busy, I'll just be playing singleplayer/offline games + a few quick sessions with either Shootmania Storm or TF2 (for my PvP needs)

Currently playing
Starbound & X3:Albion Prelude

Trying out some blogging about Starbound on Tumblr.

I have been back and gaming for the last two weeks and can't seem to find just about anyone... given, I have spent most of my time on the
dark side with new characters.

Yer... little bit of a ghost town over the past few weeks as most DOT regulars are in full July / August holiday mode, sunshine ftw! ^^

and about half dozen of us are going to get some fantasy gaming kicks and try out GW2 in the headstart access this coming Saturday. If you have the opportunity to join we're congregating on Piken Square (unofficial EU RP server).

Hello TOR,

Sorry I haven't been playing with you the past month or so. GW2 has completely hook line and sinkered me, and any MMO time I have is spent in the wonderfully beautiful Tyria. 

GW2 has had the unfortunate side affect of making all other MMOs seem a little old and stagnant. I do still love you, just you now seem just a little bit too tired for me to jump back into your grind.

There will be a time I will come back to you as I still love your setting and stories, or when you have new experiences to show me. But I will not be returning any time soon. GW2 has taken me to places and given me the feelings I once had of my first MMO love, DAoC, and for that reason alone, I will stay in Tyria.

Thank you for all the wonderful memories of mental jumping for datacrons or late night sessions in the far reaches of space. I saved your Galaxy, I damned your Galaxy, I felt like a character in the Star Wars Universe more so than any other game and I thank you.

Yours with Love,

Kelani Endymion
