I have held off on Gunheads for some reason lol and I don't quite feel like starting Ravenor. Once in awhile you get an eldar novel, or an Inquistior novel, or something different. Which is kinda depressing when you think about it - most of the non-Astartes stuff is Gaunt's Ghosts, Cain, and the IG novels, with an occasional other one. Admittedly writing a Tyranid centric novel would be difficult but interesting to trybut you'd think there would be more tau and Eldar novels, becuase there are certainly plenty of those kinds of fans.
I get a quest to remove an unwelcome necromancer from a nearby mausoleum. The skeletons inside are easy pickings, but yield a measly 65 xp.
I need 4, to get to the next level, so this is some poor farming. Especially when it seems like there are hundreds of xp you can collect in some conversations.
I run into a giant skeleton, and its bad news - every swipe from its sword takes my hp down by a quarter. Time to run away, and I'm glad I can.
I hide out in an NPC's hut Shilandralet my character regenerate, and do something else for 15 minutes. This is boring, I'll revisit this area later, when I'm more powerful. And the road to more power is laid out before me, as I can see pages of empty spellbooks I don't have yet, and I can see them in the keyboard binding options.
Aside from resting, I can also get started on inventory management here in this NPC house, as there are two containers within.
I start stashing items that I guess will be useless though you never know and lesser weapons. I can't even talk to this NPC yet, but at least it seems I can use their containers without penalty.
Outside the house, it seems like local thugs become aggressive occasionally, but they are easy to put down. Again, low xp yield, low loot yield. I need to explore now. What else is on this map, two exits, and Angyar's House. That leads to a conversation that leads to combat. I might be ruining a future storyline, so I reload, and I'll save that house for later.
I can go northwest or southeast. What would The Nameless One do? I'd head for Pharod, who seems to be the prime plot token at the moment. More aggro thugs, I run back to Shilandra's house to drop off loot and heal. There is a rest function, but it doesn't seem to work anywhere, yet.
My character must be very weak, that these common thugs can force me to retreat for lengthy regeneration sessions. I probably should have started as a fighter. I didn't have to pick a class to start with, and it looks like I can dabble in any class, maybe even switch as I go along.
Fighters usually have it easier in the beginning, but I usually accept the additional early difficulty so I can be a mage class. Maybe I could have had both. But I really wanted to start with a high Intelligence so I could get all the dialogue and story options. And what if I don't want to play through again?
Load last save, heading to "northwest portion of the Hive. The backstory is some unknown but powerful mage destroyed the neighborhood - what if it was my character, The Nameless One?
I'm guessing he loses his skills as well as memory, so he might have. Also skipping "southeastern portion of the Hive", for now.

(5) Fri Jan 04 Once in a while we get a glimpse in the New York Times of the crushing problems that beset the incredibly rich. The problems seem to center around that home away from home, the home away from home. A year ago it was the difficulty of getting an appliance fixer to come on a boat to Dolphin's Ass, MA and fix the stove in your summer home.
If I can find a place to sell the minor loot I'm getting, and resting restores all my health, than this might be a worthwhile base of operations. Nice, I can do a minor NPC quest and resting here will be free.
There's another creature here, Bariaur, who I can't talk to yet, but I feel certain will be a character who can join my party.
Maybe its because he's better drawn than most characters. That's weird - as I was leaving, Morte, the only member of my party and a floating skull issues some random voicework for us to get moving. Oh well, this early in the game it'll probably work out.
There's a guy named One-Ear standing around - and he's holding a fork, just like I need from a previous quest.
Resolved, that was a nice little quest, now I have a place to rest, and a thousand more xp. Too bad the place only has two places to stash loot, I like to organize my stuff a little better than that, but it'll do.
I'll go back to my last stash when I can find a place to sell stuff. I'm trying something new here in this blog, describing my every move in the game, and its already starting to get tedious.I was pretty upset that my brand new Canon EOS Digital Rebel camera had a defective USB port.
I was a little more upset that I was expected to pay for shipping it to Canon to be fixed (hey, it wasn't my fault their Quality Control Dept. screwed up!). This week's DistroWatch Weekly addresses that eye-candy and polished desktops have been a downside on Linux desktops.
I have been using Fedora 7 with Gnome+Xgl and Beryl for sometime enjoying the ultimate eye-candy available to Linux and maybe all operating systems's desktops.
