My husband is awesome

If you don’t play LOTRO or Guild Wars you probably won’t understand this and he probably will be upset that I’m blogging it. We had an epic conversation. I’ve edited out little bits to make it flow better but otherwise it’s intact.

Celeste
any ideas for ask an asuran?

Benj
pets.. i wanna know about pets and minis
are there going to be some new and unique pets for rangers?
and will there be more minis in GW2

Celeste
hrm, there’s not a lot of info on that
we can make assumptions and discuss
good idea

Benj
Will the menagerie make a comeback in GW2?
will it be more personalized this time around?
and most importantly.. can I ride a flamingo or warthog this time?

Celeste
no mounts confirmed

Benj
im not asking for a mount..

Celeste
they’ve said we won’t be driving anything either
riding it would make a mount

Benj
I’m asking for an emote that lets me ride my pet in town

Celeste
LOL doubtful.

Benj
an asuran on a cute piglet would be awesome
instead of their golums
next week talk about the awesomeness of owning your own area for your kinship in GW1 and why the hell we dont have housing

Celeste
LOL
no housing at release
*at release!*

Benj
cause i want a pen in the back of my house to corral my pets
not a friggin zoo

Celeste
LOL

Benj
i mean it takes FOREVER to get to where you want to go for a pet
i mean REALLY
cant i just keep my flamingos penned up?
and wouldnt it be cool if you had a crocodile tamed and when you came home it had eaten your flamingos cause you were silly enough to pen them together?

Celeste
LOL they’d never do that
too many combinations

Benj
i mean COMEON!
its The SIMS GW Edition

Benj
we get keeps for our kinship.. pets to tame.. costumes and masks for holidays and special events.. how much harder is it to make a house with a wardrobe and rideable pets?!

Celeste
I changed kinship to guild and i’m tweeting that.

Benj
oops
i prolly shouldve tweeted that
silly lotro/gw mashup

Celeste
lol

Benj
also.. related to LOTRO
what does it take to stroll down middle earth in the rain and get a friggin umbrella!?

Celeste
LMFAO

Benj
my armor will polly rust at that rate

Celeste
unless you’re a medium or light class

Benj
should make swords, axes, and maces become damaged over time in the rain.. haveta repair more often during the rainy season
i doubt GW will have mounts
charrs ride scorpions..
i dont think charr and horses would even get along
asurans ride golums that are already slowish
yous have to put a golum on a horse and thats just redundant
and might kill the horse

Celeste
ok, golem or gollum?

(The following message could not be delivered to all recipients: ok, golem or gollum?) OutLoud: NOOOOOOOOOO!

Benj
and I imagine the plant people have something against herbivores…..

And then he had to get back to work, but I thought it was worth recording how awesome and weird my husband is.

You can’t make this crap up

Who searched for “blonde in bed” and clicked through to my site? Seriously?! (INTERROBANG’D) I just don’t know who could have used that as a search string and then decided to go to a craft/gaming blog. Just– eh, whatever raises the masts I guess.

Maybe I’m just pervy, but I can’t think of a different reason to search with those specific terms.

And Now For Something Completely Different!

cape1As soon of my friends know, I’ve been grinding away on an upcoming series for Guild Wars Reporter and maybe MMOReporter as well. This afternoon after finishing up my 9th or 10th draft, I decided that I need to do something fun and funky. A very long time ago, I was glued to Guild Wars pretty much nonstop. I would jump on to our TeamSpeak server and play with my guildies, some are still present and some have moved on to other games in the verse. One of the things I jokingly did was create a prayer for instances. I would key up and run through the whole thing before a big instance to loosen the tension and get people some time to focus their thoughts. Not so long ago, I found the infamous Guild Wars binder that would be seen in tow with me as if it were a security blanket. It still has my most prized builds written in by hand and organized with construction paper dividers. I know this certainly shows a different side to my geek card that most of my family doesn’t even know about, but I felt it was time to release the silliness.

I now present to you, the unofficial Guild Wars Prayer.

Gods, let my monks heal swiftly and never be diversion’d.

Let my meteor shower fall on the target and not be late.

May all rezes be reusable.

Ecto and Shards for All.

Amen.

P.S. Let Allies of mine trip and lag out when they drop their greens.

Hopefully it will bring a smile to the face of a fellow Guild Wars veteran. Please don’t take it offensively, we all thought it was just another hilarious situational joke that made the game more fun. Enjoy your day!
