Morning all!

Been a while, but I finally got a little time to play Dishonored again. Yay! About to start the mission I'd finished before I restarted the whole mess a couple of months ago once I figured out how to take pics. 

Tried to catch it when it was sparking, but it goes too fast! This is a Wall Of Light, electric barriers place to keep unwanted people from crossing zones. The glowing jars there are what is used to power them. Luckily, since I am on this side, I can take the power jar out to bring it down. :)

This is one of the skills you can choose. What it does is show you people and things through walls and their field of vision. The guy there is looking right  in my direction so you can't see it. The other guy is walking away. The skill is very useful but will also drain mana like crazy if you leave it on too long.

The very place I first took pictures of and the man I didn't think of putting in them before I'd let him loose. Heh. 

Doesn't look comfy at all, does it?

Star Wars The Old Republic

Jedi Consular


Is this one ugly bugger or what? He's been made into a cyborg.

Looks weirdly fortified, no?

Supposed ancient shrines for the Sith and Jedi. An unexpected discovery on Voss.

Does have the same look as other Jedi ancient places though. The mystery deepens

Sunset on Voss

More ancient ruins.

Couldn't get a good angle on the waterfall. 

A Voss shrine

Imperial Spy! (Yes, I made time for her this week! Whee!)


(Looks like not all pics I tried to take actually made it. Grrr)

Things obviously did not go well here for the patients. Eek!

My new pimp ride! Much to my shock it was one of the items I got in a blackmarket bundle purchase from the new Cartel system. Since I pay monthly, I get a free stipend each month. 

Place is on fire. Looks like trouble.

Really nice field in the Republic sector I am sneaking through.

Rogue Jedi lab. She's trying to not only improve the insane Rakghouls but use a communication system to bring them to heel and under her command. 

And this would be her kneeling there, just before annihilation. 

Had to get a closer shot of those weird energy thingies. Amazing how the Republic and Empire never seemed concerned about safety. Heh heh heh.

Have a great day!

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."

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.

“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.”

“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.
