    aaaaarrrgh... I've done it again.... just settled down for a 'quick' go of Morrowind.... kill a couple of baddies, get kitted up in loads of funky gear and then all of a sudden its 3.30 am!!! What a game tho', so much scope.... the varying elements (the wind and hail at the top of the mountain is quite cool), the landscape......OK, I'll shut up now....

    Here's my character. I've chosen RedGuard as race. The shield was taken on a dead body & the armor & helmet were "borrowed".;)

    Hehe. I notice that you are followed by the scantily dressed stalker. I've read that he'll follow you around forever or until you fulfill your miniquest. In my case - well let's just say I've got a new axe and he won't follow anyone around anymore...

    I'm not afraid of rats anymore!

    Can't you guys just walk up and bash the guy in the head? At least render him unconcious if he's not useful for anything and just follows you arround. I dunno about you, but I would get really annoyed :dead:
    Playing a computer game 12 hours a day? That's crazy! I could never do that!

    Ehrm, not every day, but ONE day - normally it's more like 2-4 hours a day I guess. Crazy, perhaps, but sometimes I've read a great book 12 hours or watched, say, Seinfeld a whole day as well, so my craziness isn't confined to games. :eek:

    I'm a Level 6 Redguard ( scout ) as of right now but exams are over now !!! :D

    I can see a few Morrowind all nighters coming up. Alterning between that & a few music festivals should make for a pretty nice summer holiday.:)

    Here Yee, Here Yee, Level 11 & still going.:D

    If there are any MW fans, the IRC channel ( Starchat server - #3Dspotlight ) seems to be a nice place to talk about it these days. Spliffeh & me are regularly exchanging tips on locations & such in it.:)

    Did you mug a guard did you? You look just like one :haha:

    I just picked up the game the other day and I am now level 2...
    Can't seem to find my way to the egg mine place, and I have swum to both ends of the Ondi(?) river looking for the suspension bridge to help direct me... Beautiful game though. I think I might just get another 256mb ddr stick to speed things up a little.
    Crates are great in Caldara though as I have found about 4 magic items including a fire axe, ice mace, healing ring and a frost and magic defense robe to wear over my armour. Just got to make sure your taking stuff from unowned crates otherwise the guards arrest you ;)

    Also in Caldera, there's a kreeper in one of the mansions, he can buy things from you ( mostly weapons & armor ) for a total of 5000 gold pieces. He also replenishes his money every 24 hours.

    You can't find a pawner with such money anywhere else.

    Having just seen it running on Arris's machine last night, I have to say this is the finest looking RPG I have ever seen. Beats Dungeon Siege I reckon.

    Wonder if Neverwinter nights will stand up to the might of MW?

    Well I believe that NW is MMORPG and MW is single player RPG might seperate the two from being compared too closely. If Star Wars galaxies has graphics as nice or better than MW then I am going to enjoy that even more!!!! :p

    NWN isn't entirely MP. There is a single player adventure but it's true people go straight to the MP when they get it. I Wonder why ... ;)

    Here's a funny thread :D -> 50 things that tell you that you play Morrowind too much

    Yeah, multiplayer rpgs are fun, but I never think they stick well with storylines.... might just be my experience.
    (razors edge, Legends of Mir etc), but they are fun. :)

    Yeah, I forgot about Star Wars Galaxies. Looks pretty smart. Hope it doesn't take on one of the monthly charge type things like Ultima Online et al did.

    I actually think that's exactly what they are shooting for. The game was co-developped by Verant ( SONY ) creators of Everquest. Companies are only jumping in MMORPGs because they see the huge amount of money that there is to be made in it.

    Damnit. When will companies learn that making money isn't the point, it is our happyness. :D

    At least NWN and Morrowind have single player aspects, wonder is SWG will too?

    Hehe :haha:
    Although the last one seems to be a counterstrike trait ;)

    Found a nice little Mansionette full of unguarded rich people near Vivec. I just couldn't help myself from slaughtering them all and stealing their money and expensive clothes and jewellery. Made myself about 1300 gold which is the most I have had so far!!! ;)
    Actually forgot what class I was and found that I was using a Flame Axe that I was inept at using. Now switched to a long bladed sword which I had a major skill in. I don't seem to be swiping at the air quite so much anymore. :p

    I see you've found the Arvel plantation.:p

    I don't know why but I couldn't help myself either. Maybe it was the tone they had in their voice "Make it quick Outlander !!".

    I don't like being pushed around.:D

    Once you're powerfull enough, you might wanna start looking into some ruins. You can see them on the map ( they have wierd symbols instead of names ). They generally are made in red, purple rocks, have a ruinic look ( who would've thought ;) ) & are mostly guarded by kreepers.

    There are lots of goodies in there. You can easilly find 30.000 worth of weapons, armors, shields, etc...

    Must refrain from spending $50 dollars on a game....can't afford to stop studying for my classes....been doing so good.....must fight the force....sounds so appealing........can't fall victim to the virtual world that is Morrowind......just can't do it......please someone stop me......must not do it......ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    :D Just kidding I can refrain from buying this game for now, but it does sound awesome. Maybe I'll find time after my class is over next week. :)

    And no this isn't just another post count post. :D
