Yay for Questing!

Good morning, all you wonderful people!

Hope everything is going well. Last Thursday, Jigg got a new computer, so now we can both play again!

And there was much rejoicing.

So I started this weekend at level 672 and my goal was simply to get 675 so that I could do daily quests and try and get the 680 Lancer weapon pieces. I achieved this goal within hours of grinding, though, since both GD experience and the experience I get at turtles is very nice. 

I then tried the daily quests and, wow, are they a ton of fun! I really enjoy questing and sometimes wished this game had more significant quests. So to have 7 daily quests is just a blast for me and it doesn't hurt that they give a ton of experience. 

Also started running the 681 SD with Jigg, Flash, and Gawain, and that SD is also a ton of fun, and relatively easy once you get the hang of it. Just need lots of panacea and a smart witch (which, thankfully, my husband is!).

So by the end of the power hour, I almost reached 700 and Jigg passed it by a long-shot.

Unfortunately (well not really), we just got a new puppy, so that plus my business, I won't be able to play as much during the week, though I will try to pop on for those fun daily quests! As a bonus, here a couple pictures of my babies! FYI, my dogs are named after the Avengers, because I'm a giant nerd. Bruce (Banner), the German Shepard mix we just got yesterday and Captain (America) who is a year and a half old Husky-Malamute mix.

Bruce sleeping after a long day of playing with his older brother.

Captain a couple weeks ago when we hiked the Manoa Falls hike in the rain.

Okay, that is all I have to report for now! Thank you and I hope each of you has a wonderful day. Happy hunting, my friends!

Art Contest!

Hello, my wonderful followers!

So this last weekend OGP had an art contest to celebrate the Chinese New Year and the Year of the Horse. As some of you may know, I love art, especially drawing. So I decided to participate, submitting this image.

Excuse the mess (and couch), I currently do not have a scanner and did this in maybe 2 to 3 hours.

It was maybe the second time I've drawn a horse but I think he turned out really well and I'm in love with my archer. I also loved doing this so much that I've been inspired to do a series, a different picture for each class. I did one for Princess and instead of a horse, I decided on a pony, since princesses are so small, they would surely look ridiculous on a full-sized horse.

Anyways, now the GM's have made the contest into a voting contest, with the top ten winning some sort of secret prize. If you enjoy my archer picture, you can go vote for it here. Also show support for the only other Redstone entry, whose drawing I really enjoy as well! If someone else entered from Redstone, please let me know and I will link their art here as well!

Thank you and I hope you all are having a fantastic week!
