March 27, 2015 - Bristlebane Day and Mischievous Muses

The Bristlebane Day event began several hours ago, the sky is slowly brightening into daylight here in Southern California ... and I have not yet slept.

For several weeks now, I had been plotting and planning a very specific story for Bristlebane Day. However, it was all in my head, with none of it written down.

No worries, right? One of my college English teachers told me that I wrote my best short fiction under pressure, and there was plenty of time to let the ideas roll around in my head as I refined little bits and pieces.

Then, suddenly, time compressed, and I had only two days before Bristlebane Day 2015 was to launch. No problem - I could start writing as soon as I returned from my weekly visit to the chiropractor and finish with over a day to spare - right? Only I returned home to find that the April 1 events were turned on for the Test server, and there was a new quest, a new achievement, and new rewards to test out.

And then it was Thursday, and I woke up feeling like a saber-toothed frog had taken up residence in my throat. A visit from my acupuncturist managed to chase the frog out before he got too comfortable in there, but I still needed a nap before the Muse was willing to come out to play.

Oh what a romp the Muse decided to take! I suspect that this is my longest Niami story ever, with over 9400 words to it before I dropped it into the site editing window and began final editing and formatting. The length seems rather fitting, since it is her most convoluted prank yet.

As usual, the impatient can scroll down past the horizontal rule on Bristlebane Day 2015: Godlike Pranking to check out just the new stuff without the extra more meaty "gravy" of a story.

Nix that. The impatient already ignored all of this sleepy babble, and just clicked on the link anyway. Ah well, they can figure it out for themselves ...

March 25, 2015 - Coming Soon(TM)

Bristlebane Day begins on Friday. Yep, the season of event mania is headed for the finish line, more or less. While I have had the eye-candy ready for almost two weeks, the muse and I have been working on hashing out on a slightly grander scale than usual, and the story is not ready to publish yet. Hopefully I will have it done late today. If not, you will have to wait until tomorrow for the story Godlike Pranking, but you can use that link now to see the new items. The tinyurl if you need to share it for any reason in chat channels is http://tinyurl.com/eq2bristlebane

March 19, 2015 - Chronoportals 2015

Just a reminder that the Chronoportals event only lasts a week, so if you want any of the Chronoportals House Items, you should set aside some time to run the instances. Remember to grab the new quest from above the docks in the Commonlands, first, for an extra reward. (With danger, you can sneak even a low-level alt into the instances to grab the new quest updates, even if you are unable to do the rest of the combat.)

March 17, 2015 - This and That

There have been a couple changes/fixes in regards to the new food and drink that was added on March 10. On the fix front, the blood oranges in T8 have been added to the T8 shrub nodes. On the changes front, the T10 and T11 food and drink have had crit chance added to the stats. The article on primordial adornments and rare food/drink has been updated with the new examine info for the T10/T11 food and drink.

The annual chronoportal event, which is a bow to the anniversary of EverQuest, will begin on the 19th. While this is an utterly crafting-free event, there are quite a few heirloom house items to scrounge, including a few new ones this year. While I initially just did a page for the new items from the event, I added all the chronoportal house items to it. Enjoy!

March 10, 2015 - Harvesting Squirreliness

Harvesting nodes in Tranquil and Phantom Sea are currently disabled due to a crash issue. They are working on it. Harvesting shrubs in Kunark is giving an incorrect rare in place of the new food rare.

Did Friday the 13th come early?
