Got my exercise-walk out of the way an hour early today, due to predicted heavy rains moving in later on. Theoretically 'very' heavy rain this evening and all day tomorrow, then moderate steady rain for four more days. Storms two of those days. At the moment no tornadoes, hail or overly strong winds are forecast . . . knock on wood.

Was just warm enough outside to walk in t-shirt rather than sweat top, though strong wind made me question that decision starting out.

At what would normally have been the end of my walk I realized I had not dropped up my city utility payment. Stepped inside the house just long enough to grab it off the bookcase next to the front door and walked the circa two blocks to city hall.

Had an expensive groceries run yesterday. I went over budget, as only rarely happens. It wasn't by much. We're talking $2US. The irony is that hours after I arrived home, logging expenses in Microsoft Money 2003's ledger, I noticed that my ticket showed one more can of soup than was in my cart! Skinflint that I am, my first thought was to drive back to walmart. My second thought was that I had prolly waited too late to contest to ticket. My third thought was that even if not too late, gas consumption for the two-way drive would eat almost every bit of my meager refund. I let it pass. Had it not been for the error I'd have stayed within budget or been only few pennies over.

Which bloke? It's been too long since I last had a character set foot in the Isles sad.gif

Tove the Unrestful.
Callidus Thorn
I might have to throw together a new character, just to hurl them headfirst into the Shivering Isles evillol.gif
mirocu
Or maybe use your exisiting one? biggrin.gif
Callidus Thorn
Neither of them has any particular reason to go there. And I'm thinking that taking an unarmoured Mystic Archer in there is going to end badly.

Very badly.

The Spellsword might do better, but he's only level 1, so...
mirocu
So you think they might disapprove slightly if being sent there? laugh.gif
Callidus Thorn
I don't think they'd take kindly to that kind of interference. I'm just along for the ride really, they're the ones calling the shots.

Same here. At some point when you have a character long enough, they begin taking over the reins from you and it is sometimes surprising where they choose to go or what they choose to do. Sometimes things I never would have chosen for them (like the time Maxical took off to the Jeralls and wouldn't come back down for months).

The same thing happens in writing, if you are listening to your characters - example: I couldn't write Maxical and Count Skingrad in the same room without the two of them bickering back and forth and sniping each other verbally. I don't know why, it was not my intention that they fight like cats and dogs - but it made for some of the funniest scenes in the story, imho.

At some point when you have a character long enough, they begin taking over the reins from you and it is sometimes surprising where they choose to go or what they choose to do. Sometimes things I never would have chosen for them (like the time Maxical took off to the Jeralls and wouldn't come back down for months).

Thereīs just something about the Jeralls, isnīt there..? biggrin.gif

To this day I have haunting memories of her time in the Jeralls. It was after becoming the Grand Champion of the Arena in the first game I ever played. She traveled without sleeping all the way; first to Crowhaven, then she walked the ridges of the Colovian Highlands till she reached Frostcraig Spire, then continued on to that camp next to the Ayleid ruin. That is where she finally stopped and slept, and was awoken by Lucien Lachance.

She wandered those Jeralls for at least 4 months after his visit, not wanting to return to civilization. She had an assassin stalk her up there (Audens Avidius) and fall off a cliff trying to catch her; she was trying to lead him to the lair of the Uderfryke Matron.

She spent a LOT of time at the Dive Rock camp, and eventually made her way across to the Valus Mountains and down them (but not before she had walked the border to Hammerfell; Skyrim; Morrowind; and Black Marsh almost entirely. At one point I actually did remove borders and see if she could walk to Morrowind, but that didn't work, lol) .

Six more assassins stalked her through the Valus Mountains (the Bleak Mine Guards), which is what eventually drove her back out into the more populated areas.

When she eventually eased back into the more populated areas, it felt strange after being so isolated; which probably led her down the paths she ended up going at that time (Thieves Guild, and her unfortunate time with the Dark Brotherhood).

(then the Wrath of Sithis stalked her, lol. Now THAT is one tough fight!!! )

Cool story! I really liked her doing that long journey and escaping civilization like that. Lothran did a similar thing once when he "escaped" to Shivering Isles and ended up in a small village close to the northenmost point. He sort of wanted to get away from Cyrodiil as much as possible for some reason. I donīt know. Maybe it was just an expression of myself, wanting to run away from society tongue.gif

He didnīt stay there long though, but he wandered the Isles for some time before returning to Cyrodiil. I think this was about his second visit to the Isles.

I wasn't in the mood to browse the web yesterday evening so, a tad after 1900, opted to read in bed until my 2030 milk snack. Several pages in I grew too groggy to concentrate and eventually nodded off. Woke minutes after 2200. Got maybe 2 1/2 hrs shuteye. Crawled out of bed. Watched a few brief news clips and checked weather/flooding conditions at YouTube. Offed the computer. Darkened the house except my reading light. Returned to bed.

2 1/2 hrs isn't much less sleep than I normally get per night. Was worried I wouldn't nod off again. Come 2340ish this was proving true. While groggy . . . I'm perpetually groggy anymore . . . I was not in the least sleepy. Admitted defeat and downed a sleeping pill, a rarity for me. Not sure when I drifted off. Prolly near 0030. Woke at 0458, two minutes before breakfast. Even in a worst case scenario I got somewhere around 6 1/2hr sleep Might be closer to seven. That's a lot for me. Easily double what I get many nights. I do feel more mellow than usual, but that is likely attributed to the pill still being active in my system rather than the additional sleep. Or is it?

Good news, my home survived the night sans flooding. More good news, today's rainfall is at the moment predicted to be 1.11", significantly less than forecast when I retired last night.

I 'should' receive a package from Amazon some time today. We shall see.

I never wanted to escape to the Isles, but they do feel very different and when you return to Cyrodiil you do feel kind of off kilter for a little while after spending a lot of time in the Isles. (or at least I did) .
