Good morning!

We went out Christmas shopping yesterday so had no time for SWTOR, but I did sneak some other game play earlier in the week. :P


A distillery. The old lady wants me to use the rat guts from Dr Galvani's lab to poison the tanks of healing potions they're selling for way too steep a price. Must say I had a much easier time this round here. Phew! 

In the back of the distillery. Casks and casks and more casks pf whiskey. If you enlarge the pic you can see the trip wire of the trap stretched across the hallway and the dude's silhouette past time. Sneak sneak sneak.

Angry Birds Star Wars

Yeah...after finishing the demo I just had to buy it. lol.

This is one of the space screens. The shimmering zones around the one planetoid means it has GRAVITY that will skew your trajectory. Yes, ABSW has a gravitational pull component!

You can see this one there on the top. You do get a guiding set of dots and you can see it bend when you aim at a gravity well. 

This gravity well would spin the bird but there's varying degrees depending on angle. Can get pretty tricky.

Tie Pig Fighter and yeah, he's shooting lasers!

Bwahahahaha! Finished Tatooine and Space from that planet - now I'm fighting Storm Pig Troopers in space on the way to the Death Star. Can't wait to get there!

One of the picture/movie sequences. He's a new character. He splits into 3 birds.

More gravity spinning fun!

This screen here is fun! It keeps track of what characters you've run across. There's 3CPO and R2D2 from the previous bonus screen I did. What's even more fun is that you can click on each one and it makes the sound they normally do when used in the game. Hee!

Second Bonus Screen. A gravity well inside a gravity well. This sucker was funky!

Have an awesome day, all!

The King is Dead! Long Live the Undead King!

"What are you implying?"

The magister glided forward and scrunched down beside him.

"That in order to bathe, you must first actually get into the bath."

It took everything from her, except revenge!

The muscles in my right arm jerked from tension as I tried to make it move and it resisted. A shrill scream inside my head insisted I didn't want to do this. That if I did, there'd be no way to take it back. "I...I'm afraid."


(2011) Young Adult – Fantasy

Which is worse…the monster without or within?


Home—family—the two things he would never have, the two things forever denied him…because of her.

Anger welled inside him, the heat of it suffusing him to the core, gurgling with seething emotions the total opposite of the coolness splashing down from the fountain nearby. Before he realized what he was doing, Jarrin stepped inside the gazebo.

“Harry Potter meets Dragon Riders of Pern”


“Do you need any help?” she asked. “Just tell me what you want me to do. If you prefer, I’m sure I can round up at least a few people to come over and give you a hand.”

Kel slowly shook his head. “It’s all right. Thanks anyway.” His voice lowered to where she almost couldn’t hear it. “This is all part of my punishment.’

She frowned, not understanding what he meant. “Punishment?”

Kel cocked his head in Clarence’s direction. In a flash, she understood. None of this was an accident. Clarence had landed there deliberately, hoping to make Kel pay for all he went through in the past month. She shook her head, not wanting to believe this, but what the dragon said next took any doubts right out of her head.

(2008) Young Adult – Fantasy
“To save the world she must DIE! Or must she?”


Panic and fear filled with utter helplessness made her dizzy. She knew what would be done with her, she knew what they planned. But there was nothing she could do to stop any of it.

Sharp gasps echoed in her ears as she felt the room’s cold air caress the Eye.

“You were right. She is the one.”

(2002) Adult/YA – Japanese Fantasy Adventure
“The Last Samurai meets Pirates of the Caribbean”


Laying the blade on the floor before him, Toshi parted his kimono until his stomach lay exposed. He tucked his sleeves beneath his legs to hold him upright if he should falter. Ignoring Asano, he took up the blade. His shoulder flared with pain and he tried not to flinch, as he grabbed the blade with both hands. He turned the wakizashi until its sharp point was aimed at his belly, the residence of his soul.

(2004) Adult/YA – Fantasy Mystery
“He tried to forget his past, but his past wouldn’t forget him”


Torren took a step back a sudden shudder racking through him. It was as if he’d never left, as if the boy he’d been would be coming back-though the one who’d loved this room and all these things was long, long dead. That boy died when he’d watched his father’s blood pour forth from his mouth, the end of a sword protruding from his abdomen. That boy died when he survived while everyone else lay dead.
