OR reload and not
hit it? Yeah, that's the one I chose.
I'm sure there was some instruction about it that I missed because I'm impatient and because my brother always goes to bed early. Right now his gf is visiting and I'm totally stressing because I want to plaaayyyy!
And you did tell me that I could not
fight the dragon at this time. I seriously so much didn't.
(I'm thinking of getting Fallout 3 for my laptop --even though it's a mac I have BootCamp installed-- because I am not getting to Brooklyn enough for the amount I want to keep playing that game. I haven't because there are other things I'm actually supposed to be doing and I think if I get that it's just another major distraction in a sea of distractions)
I did get almost all of the riddles right except for um... mercy? I think? I would have gotten them all wrong if they weren't multiple choice.
Got the Ashes! Didn't despoil them with the blood.
And didn't kill Genitivi because even if he told people where the ashes are there's still the whole gauntlet thing and a fucking dragon
to get through to get at them, right?
Went back to Redcliffe because I was worried that the Arl thing was maybe time sensitive and he had been at death's door for weeks now. Now things are really chugging along.
I still haven't been to the Frostback Mountains for the Dwarf quest. So I don't know if I should go to with the Arl for the Landsmeet or get Warden quests all wrapped up first. And
In my new playthrough, I have been playing more with the other characters since I'm already a Mage I don't have to take Morrigan with me all the time. Man everything I do pisses Sten off. I went to Redcliffe again, but then backtracked and did some other quests first like the Shale one.
I tried to do the Kitty one by letting her have the girl, because I had read that I could get a cool mage staff. but when the girl makes a scared face and covers her eyes, I just felt really creeped out by the whole thing and also everyone in my party majorly disapproved and I was also like "yeah, I disapprove too, guys." I reloaded.
I stumbled back into Redcliffe with Leiliana, Sten and Shale and then I realized that there is that whole "I'm a bastard" speech that Alistair is supposed to give... and
I'm kind of at a pause point with both playthroughs as to what my next best move is.
I think my next step with Aurelia is the
Misty Mountains and Mines of Moria
Frostback Mountains and Orzammar? We can't have a Landsmeet without the full backing of everyone who would uphold the treaties with the Grey Wardens, right?
The Arl won't have it without us, I'm pretty sure. This might be my confusion as to how games work.
With Celestia (hush, I know
I could be referencing MLP, I just wanted a fantasy version of my ME char "Celeste"!) I'm unsure. It feels like the Redcliffe thing is important because it's top of the list on the "Blight" and I don't think they're alphabetical. And I'm still going to avoid Denerim until I'm a higher level.
I've been looking up stuff on the Wikia while I go in sometimes, I know it's probably cheating, I'm not doing it so much with my first run, but the second, I kind of want to get my shit together faster.
I just don't have the time, man!!
I get this sort of magnetic opposite thing happening where I just want all the action to play and then I also want to know all the story stuff.
Like, I want to barrel ahead with the fighting. And I also want to listen to everyone and get involved with their individual expositions. So I make dumb choices all the time.
Happened with ME, too.
I guess this is like a "Let's Play"? but I've never actually looked at anything other than the MSPixel of ME which I find hilarious. But I don't know if I should adhere to some sort of structure other than "WTF is happening now??"
I mean, I was going to try to do a synopsis with a "stray observations" section AV Club style but it's all just my experience, it's not like actual specific episodes.
Also if I don't answer your comment it's not cuz I don't care. Things are getting lost in the shuffle, esp with the way my new mail is sorting stuff. It is filing per person, and it's confusing. Anyway I'm seeing everything, eventually and I love getting feedback and advice!
OMG, what is going on here?
Fuck it's snowing so much.
*some of that title is from Red vs. Blue and I realize I am completely remiss in also having old RvB icons. what the heck? I guess when I was originally obsessed with that show, it was before I was a regular on here. But man I need some goddamn photoshop up on this computer. Fuck Gimp. I can't stand it! ARGH!!!
