    Thank you very much Squirrel for your kind words about the blog!

    As for the current discussion topic of the Living Story: Bugger it. I'm just farming that stuff for achievement points and nice loot. I don't give a toss about the story arcs because I know that they're completely unable to do anything major with the temporary content. I think I would be more inclined to stay on top of it if it was actually more interesting and lore-relevant, but right now it's just a bit 'lol pirates and airships are kewl!'. If you're busy and you have an active guild that actually does things (like [RPS]) then it's hard to justify spending the extra time keeping up with the Living Story.

    Main character name is Seigous Bearheart. I also play on Duke Witherheart. And Lindenheart.

    They need better story tellers for sure as some of it seems to be written by a child or rather a person who thinks that's what adults want - either way dum.
    Tbh the single that keeps me coming back and will always are the people and banter you can get with them on mumble. Once I get 100% with le norn I'm unlikely to bother with another alt as I will have done it all. That said I was pondering a necro the other day as that would farthest to go from an in your face glass cannon.
    But mumble can save a dull grind every day - push to talk can be *good* to stop coughs etc but actually more often than not its the random noises or banter as Yaargh across the rooms steals more cake but you can hear on tweets comms that make it more funny. Heavy breathing from the right person can be good too
    Even f you can't always speak back due to kids etc, knowing whats being bantered about allows for cutting rps chat comments that are good too.

    Got to second Monkey's statement about Mumble. It's absolutely ace talking to you guys (and hopefully will help my limited active English vocabulary to grow some more). Sadly, either the Mumble server or my connection is having some wobbly moments from time to time. Actually, connection quality has been p**s poor lately.

    The RPS mumble server has been falling over repeatedly lately, moving over to the gunnars hold server seems to fix these issues.

    There's also the general RPS server used for many other games that could be used if needed.

    and yes, I wouldn't keep playing if you guys weren't so awesome :]

    I fear for Tweetiti's sanity. Luckily, Yargh will be there.

    I somehow doubt that'll be enough. Lets hope they survive to fight another day (when more of us can make it)

    It's genius. Now we will spend all our time grinding achievements instead of complaining about having nothing to do.

    Hear from the spirit-world this mystery:
    Creation is summed up, O man, in thee;
    Angel and demon, man and beast art thou,
    Yea, thou art all thou dost appear to be!

    If they really think that the game might never have an expansion, then they must also think that the Living Story updates could eventually deliver something beyond mere fluff. They've yet to prove they can do that on such a short cycle yet, but they do seem to be getting better, so perhaps it's not a vain hope.

    If they really could pull it off -- introducing new story, zones, skills, dungeons, etc gradually rather than in a huge chunk once every 18 months -- it would be very impressive. But if it ends up being twenty annual updates of Secret of Southsun magnitude, I think we'll tire of that pretty soon. Still, they have to know that by the end of the year people will be itching for expansion-style content, so I *hope* they've anticipated this...

    Who cares about that, I want my 2h axe :/ Once it would be out, I'd drop all my chars and raise one, that would have most fun abilities on the axe as my main.

    I'll need to go complain on official forums about that :/

    More weapons for every class would be a good thing, as well as at least 1 more utility skill per type for every class (so guardians get a new signet, new shout, etc.) and ~3+ new elites per class.

    But yeah, I feel that the 2h axe and crossbow should head our way at some point.
