Had a long day full of travel and adventure. Too long to recount it all here so I’ll just touch on the details. First, I met up with Terran who gifted me with some leatherworking patterns, and used his skills of smithing to craft me a new knife, which he […]

During my hunt for Harvest Golems (for their oil) I stopped off at Sentinel Hill to talk to Gryan Stoutmantle, and he urged me to once again take up arms in the People’s Militia’s war on the Defias Brotherhood. He pled his case well and I agreed. He also asked […]

Microsoft cuts Xbox to $149; will Sony cut next? – Mar. 29, 2004 Good time to buy an XBox, I guess. Though I’m so disheartened by what I’m hearing about XBox Next that I’m wary of supporting MS. Still, there are some great games available for the original XBox even […]

This feeling of malaise still clings to me. I spent the day drifting around, doing nothing in particular, and failing at that. With no direction to go but up, I found myself prowling around Westfall again. The endless fields of grain mocked me. All of Westfall feels the same. Dull. […]

I always find flying over The Burning Steppes and The Cauldron unsettling. I can’t help but imagine what would become of me if the gryphon decided to land and dump me amid the horrors that call these areas home. When we cross the ridgeline and enter Dun Morogh I always […]

Microsoft hints at what’s to come with Xbox 2 Looks like development kits for XBox 2 are shipping. What’s curious is this article talks about even closer integration between Windows and XBox, while the hardware is getting more diverse (with XBox 2 being based on PowerPC chips and not including […]

I’ve decided to keep this journal in the hopes that it will help those who come after me. In these times of turbulence, we must all do what we can to help each other. Doing just that was what found me in Westfall, helping the People’s Militia out there. I […]
