Orcs, now castles.

Well, Droonda dinged 69 last night. Anyway, we were in Netherstorm and doing some quests there. There is a cool looking main-hand axe there, the one-handed version of the two-hander you get from the Ring of Blood quests. It’s got the hollow blade in which a glowing ball of energy sits. Very cool looking. Droonda and Blackhoof will have to get those since they do a touch more damage than our current main-hands, and it’s a slow weapon, so perfect for the new Shaman dps fashion.

Is it hot in here?

It is. It’s Germany in the summertime now (as opposed to Summer in wintertime like we had a couple of months ago) and it’s hot. Damn hot. Steamy, jungle, tropical hot. Right in the heart of Europe. No central air-conditioning, no fly screens on the windows, they open wide to the bugs and humidity every year. We even get those afternoon rain showers just like Florida has. 2007-1907-1607. They deal the same way with hot summers regardless of century.

But, anyway, we’re driving south to go see Neuschwanstein. That’s the Disneyland Castle. The real one where some crazy Michael Jackson-like, the kids guy, not the beer guy, King Ludwig passed some time. He’s also got that weird grotto there, pretty colors and a swan boat on a lake, and the table that’s raised up to his level from the kitchen below where the peons worked. And some natural scenery to enjoy as well.

And when we get back the Orcs will be back in business.

    Yep, we have those rolladens. You get a great feeling of security having them. And they make good sunshades as well. I’m surprised they never took off in the States. I guess even most shutters nowadays are just decorative.

    Summertime is early… it is really hot here in Sweden too.. if this heat trend continues alot of houses/apartments in sweden will have to be fitted with AC.. very uncommon as of now.
