LOTRO: BUSY BUSY BUSY!

11 Aug

When life is too busy to complete your projects its time to cut back and relax…right?

NOT in TSU’s world…

LOTRO play is minimal, slow crawl to server mergers has started…

Opopa LOTRO fan-fiction bogged down in devilish philosophical detail…Chapter 3 is over a week late…it will BE, it will!

Doodlings from my commute to work have been pushed aside by inane Clash of Clans android play… JUST STOP!

My Eve Online play has sunk into the depths of minor skill tweeking… and creative doodles in response have also started to decrease… Rixx my online muse has also taken a vacation, I’m confident it will pick up again soon…

WORK has got super busy, and will only get worse on the run up to Xmas… 1 QC editor left and 1 on placement to New York! OK that’s not healthy!

So it’s time to get that illustrated Ork poem done… !

Draft digi doodles to base drawings on have started to coalesce out of my head…

ork on my fork

Oh yeah, Mork the Ork on my fork is BACK!

ORK ON MY FORK

There is an ork on my fork
Is a bit of a dork
Called Mork from York
Feeds off pork and cork
At work likes to roar “Rork!”
That ork on my fork
Worked forking pork
Not po’kin and fo’kin cork
For k, (in Spanish, ‘por k’
Porque? no se!) Wor’ k! Cor! k!
That ork on my fork
Forked tongue ork twisted
Torked norking sork zork
Korky oorky gorky tork
Borkin’ mad that Ork
On my Fork

LOTRO: 2 Liebster again!

5 Aug

liebster2

Haffle from Level Up Haffle (formally the Malaysian Gamer blog) has liebered me …it’s no hassle so I’ll hustle some answers!

Tsuhelm/TsuEveCreative, quirky, fun and entertaining with everything Lotro and Eve, Tsu’s brilliant mind will be suited for this!’

WOW if I ever write a book I want that on the cover! THX 🙂

The Questions

How did you get into blogging?

I had tried to blog at its height when I was out travelling: 2 years Spain, Europe tour and then South America. But I was uninspired and soon stopped. After settling down in Argentina, bored at work, I had just started to get into LOTRO big time, I decided to start a gaming blog, this time I simply couldn’t get the dammed top back on and my madness has been pouring out ever since… surely a mismanagement of time at work but I do not regret a single word blogged!

Describe yourself using a song…

FIRESTARTER – Prodigy…all punky and spiky on the outside but inside am just a big old soft pop kinda guy!

Favourite video game character and why.

Oh this is gonna be a tough one, historically would be Sonic cos it was the first ever gaming character that caught my imagination in game and without!

What was the first video game you played?

Probably space invaders…

My top 15 games, chronologically ordered: https://tsuhelm.wordpress.com/2014/03/25/lotro-how-the-hell-did-i-get-here/

Favorite snack while gaming?

Beer…or whiskey… not really a snacker more of a glugger!

If there was one video game out there that you’d like to see made into a movie (that isn’t already a movie or in production), what would it be and why?

Vagrant Story cos I just want to see more of the twisted world of Valendia, and if they made a movie they may even make another game!!!

Describe your perfect holiday.

Beach, waves, surf, beer, frisbee, happy kids n wife, good food, good weather (but not so good that it removes the waves!) and friends. FUN! Maybe a good book or some portable gaming. Throw in a great pub and a pool table, a swimming pool and I am pretty much in heaven.

Beer, wine, liquor or alcohol free?

Beer (although I have cut back to only on special occasions), so nowadays its wine, wine, and wine. I do have rather good taste in cocktails too… I find nothing wrong in drinking a well-crafted cosmopolitan! Oh and a nice single malt is a luxury I rather like from time to time, the closest I can afford in Argentina is a glass of JD every so often!

If you could work at a game company/developer of your choice, which would it be and why?

SEGA or SQUARE … cos I am not WORTHY! I would be a willing door mat for them!

What was in your opinion, the worst video game you’ve ever played?

Too many to list, way too many!

Kindle or books?

BOOKS! Pages were invented for turning…My fav books post

Ikeas Bookbook: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOXQo7nURs0

The wrap…

If you think you are suffering from deja-vu you are not:

OK Haffle I am not gonna pass around the liebstick but as you are now going to be blogging about your other gaming interests as well, how about sharing your TOP ALL-TIME 15 GAMES… I wonder if it resurrects this old doozy!

LOTRO: Dali for a DAY: Lollipop!

5 May

lolipop

From one piece of information can come a whole surreal post:

200px-Chupa-chups.svg

The logo above was designed by Dali! 

ChupaChups

‘Chupa Chups is a popular Spanish brand of lollipop and other confectionery sold in over 150 countries around the world. The brand was founded in 1958, and is currently owned by the Italian multinational corporation Perfetti Van Melle. The name of the brand comes from the Spanish verb chupar, meaning “to lick or to suck”’

‘The Chupa Chups logo was designed in 1969 by artist Salvador Dalí’

Wikipedia

CHORDETTESLOTRO

The Chordettes – ‘Lollipop

Bigband and 2NE1 – ‘Lollipop’ (KPOP)

El Medico‘Chupa Chupa’ (warning sexual imagery)

The Sweet‘Ballroom Blitz’

The Strangeloves – ‘I want candy

Len Barry‘123’

‘Its easy, its so easy, like taking candy from a baby!’

LOTRO game play?

Pink Floyd – ‘Candy and a Current Bun’

Odd psychedelia:

‘Ice cream, taste good in the afternoon
Ice cream, taste good if you eat it soon’

To obvious LOTRO reference:

‘Go buy, candy and a currant bun
I like, to see you run
Like that……’

The hobbit run animations, surely!

 

 

LOTRO: Dali for a day!

creativebloggerlotro

Thanks to THINKING PLAY for nominating me for the CREATIVE BLOGGER AWARD:

‘If there’s any such thing as a creative blogger it has to be Tsu, the Salvador Dali of LOTRO blogging’

WOW I just got compared to Dali and that dropped me to the floor!

‘Dalí was highly imaginative, and also enjoyed indulging in unusual and grandiose behavior. His eccentric manner and attention-grabbing public actions sometimes drew more attention than his artwork, to the dismay of those who held his work in high esteem, and to the irritation of his critics.’

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salvador_Dal%C3%AD

‘TSU is highly imaginative, and also enjoys indulging in LOTRO and blogging behavior. His eccentric manner and mind bending postings sometimes draw more attention than his gaming content, to the dismay of those who hold his work in some kind of esteem, and to the irritation of critics…’

And to be honest I am easily distracted, and over stimulated and with no-one to please but myself… leads many times to blogging anarchism… and can be messy and off topic…even weird… I don’t think I can stop doing it though 🙂Surreal Elephants

I wonder what Dali would have made of all this digital decadence?

AND how does this award work, trivia this time then more chain lettering…

Five Possibly Interesting Facts About Me

1 I do not drive!

Which is strange. My dad was a car fanatic! At age of 10 I had two and a half years on a farm in Scotland and I learnt to ride a scrambler over hills, as well as an Argocat (similar steering to a tank I have been told) and fork lifter! Outboard driven boats and under strict supervision the speedboat too! But when offered to drive the Land Rover around the field I was scared shitless and always declined… in later life I always managed to live in big cities with good (ish) public transport… now my wife keeps suggesting I learn (get a licence) and yet for some reason I do not want to! I am not a big fan of driving games, but I surprised mates when I did really well in a go-cart competition entered in jest: I spun off in the final!

2 Crime in Spain OR Stupid Drunk Person!

I love SPAIN and I would willingly get blindly drunk again after celebrating my return to Cadiz, after a trip to the Mediterranean, after falling asleep (with almost all travel possessions) on a park bench in the middle of the night to wake up with a lighter burden to carry and an incredible hangover! (Macbook, camera, Gameboy DS, passport, and clean clothes, including a very nice designer cream jacket all donated to the Spanish underworld!)

(A long time ago, drunk again in a bar in CPH I put my new tailored ¾ length Armani Coat on a pretty Greenlander girl, it walked away cutely into the night…  pockets contained an iplayer and canon ixus!)

I drink only wine in moderation these days!

3 I burnt down my parents bookcase at the age of 4!

Playing with matches is dangerous and my parents suspected me of becoming a pyromaniac at an early age. The enflamed bookcase was close to killing us all! Toasted sandwiches on homemade bonfire on an expensive afghan rug at a friend’s house didn’t help. I have so far managed to resist my firebug tendencies, although I love a good bonfire and learnt very quickly how to get the ‘parilla’ (Argentinian barbeque) going: although cooking on it is a skill I have yet to master!

4 Impaled on scissors!

I once fell off a wall carrying a pair of scissors: I managed to jam the scissors so hard into my jaw (through my cheek) the doctor was too scared to pull them out… I have a small scar inside my cheek!

5 Fifteen seconds of Fame…

I was quizzed as part of an Argentinian TV show on the way home from work: my crap Spanish didn’t pass so an attractive assistant was called in to question me in English, only adding to my embarrassment… I had no clue to the answer and this worked out well as the contestant won more money because of it!

AND my nominees for CREATIVE BLOGGING AWARD?

Avaruussuo: Finnish and very creative blogging, lots of Photo stuff but important to me, every so often chucks out some landscape screenies that amaze…must be the photographic eye!

The Wandering Tales has gone really quiet of late and I really miss the super colourful screenies so if an influx of readers wants to incentivize… I will be more than happy 🙂

The Last Huntress of The Dreadward Tribunal and In the World Lived a woman: (2 for the price of 1!) I must admit in my busy RW life I do not always get the chance to read all of the great LOTRO fan fiction here but I love it just the same …and the screenies are cool too!

Wandering around Arda will always get my vote for being creative, creative with costuming in LOTRO as well as screenshotting the awesome results. Maybe a little elfy at times but always ideas to steal 🙂

Ding!: A recent find of mine and a general gaming blog that struck me as very professional from the outset, layout clean, appropriate visuals and good writing: so creative got picked up to write online…I hope the blog keeps going as well

LOTRO: Update 15 Bearing Up!

29 Oct

hofmeister LOTRO

Hoffmeister was a LAGER (beer) I remember from my youth, advertising obviously does work as I can’t remember ever drinking any…I doubt it is still on sale.

Well Update 15 will be arriving next week…on November the 5th of all dates to pick, being British I will not forget:

The Fifth of November

‘Remember, remember!
The fifth of November,
The Gunpowder treason and plot;
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!’

(You may have encountered this rhyme in V for Vendetta!)

Guy Fawkes actually came from my home town, YORK!

So we can look forward to :

banner-720x156oh Oops that’s the ‘The 15th Annual Geriatrics and Long-Term Care Update will take place on Friday, September 12 through Sunday, September 14 at the Reynolds Center on Aging on the campus of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences’

We missed it!

No just pulling your leg…

Just realized that there is no graphic released for the LOTRO UPDATE yet!

Nothing in the update is really exciting me but we do get a new race/class to play 🙂

BEORNINGS…

So you better get used to using these phrases( all used in Hofmeister advertising :))

Follow the bear
For great lager follow the bear
I’ve got a bear behind
Ive got the bear essentials
Im bear all over
Bearing Up
Grin and Bear it
Get your bearings
Bear Power
I went 3 rounds with the bear
Cant bear to go home

AND to keep the bear flavour going (I would love to be keeping the beer flowing at this moment!):

Bear necessities…

‘Look for the beorning necessities
The simple beorning necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the beorning necessities
Old Mother Nature’s recipes
That brings the beorning necessities of life’

Baloo’s song from the original Jungle Book

FINALLY a silly poem…please bear with me:

A Beorning is not simply a bare bear
Don’t be yawning, its not boring
Being a beorning in Update 15
 
Life as a care bear or a were bear
Or simply Winnie the Poo bear
 
Don’t be grizzly, or go polar…
Go down under for a cola with a Koala
 
To be or ning is the question…
In the beginning your own pit to play in
At the end a whole middle earth to quest in.
 
Go wild little beorning, fly be free
Gather your bear necessities
Go anthropomorphic and drink tea
 
Ursine wonders lately introduced
Unlikely to WOW with kung fu panda thrills
Three trees of skills to be loosed
 
At present it’s a bear market for LOTRO…
But everyone will love your new teddy
Let out a huge bellow
 
Don’t be a bugbear like Yogi, leave peoples picnic baskets alone…
Bear hugs all round…
Here’s hoping update 15 will astound…

LOTRO: Dude! The Old City…Done!

15 Jan

The Dude: I will take it!

[they don’t hear him; he raises his voice]

The Dude: I will take it!

[they fall silent, looking at him]

The Dude: I will take the Ring to Mordor!

[pause]

The Dude: Though… I do not know the way.

Tsuhelm started off the morning by running Legendary Item Title Quests: The Training Hall and The Mithril Slaves…getting easier with each run. Fused Relics deconstructed and melded…slowly building up some higher tier relics…

So back to Deep Descent need to wrap up the Silvertine Lodes. Sori [sorry!] sends Tsuhelm to find Öndótt which opens a small cluster of quests that I missed with Tsudryt.

Following Öndótt, open the big door and step into the Old Silvertine City, Öndótt is waiting…he quickly sends Tsuhelm off to kill Cave claws and destroy their nests, kill pesky Dragonets and check out the colourful Crystals…and the bottom of the stairs Tsuhelm finds a riddle carved into the stone…oh those fun loving dwarves…

‘I can sizzle like bacon; I am made with an egg,

I have plenty of backbone, but lack a good leg,

I peel layers like onions, but still remain whole,

I can be long, like a flag-pole, yet fit in small holes.

What am I?’

Fair enough…Tsuhelm while pew pewing caveclaws and dragonets finds a stone plaque with a snake on…er…that must be the solution (there are no other plaques around to be pressed…)

Wow another riddle:

‘At night, I come without being fetched.

By day, though lost, I am not gone.

All know me, but only the ocean heeds my call.’

And look some chests with different icons above them…

Oh look a moon chest…! That must be the answer. Finds a key…

Here is a riddle for you:

‘When is a riddle not a riddle?’ When it’s a LOTRO riddle!

riddle

OK so that was over quickly, continue the slaughter of cave claws, dragonets and crystal watching!

Back to Öndótt to wrap up… a new cloak reward for solving the riddle: Twisttongue’s Cloak…nice much better than equipped cloak…+35 Agility!

Oh and Tsuhelm is sent back into the city to find some ORES…wow never done that before! Ore collected and then asked to go back to Thettmárr in the Deep Descent camp…get to ride Öndótt’s goat!

Finished for the day…almost lv52.

Quests done:

Unwelcome Tunnellers

Dragonets of the Old Silvertine City

The Colours of Crystals

Ore Samples IV: The Old Silvertine City

The Deep Descent Awaits

[ ] A Riddle in an Old City

Nice to be back playing LOTRO…

 

The Dude: Take it!

Stranger: No, Dude.

The Dude: You must take it!

Stranger: You cannot offer me this ring!

The Dude: I’m giving it to you!

Stranger: Don’t… tempt me Dude! I dare not take it. Not even to keep it safe. Understand, Dude. I would use this ring from a desire to do good… But through me, it would wield a power too great and terrible to imagine.

LOTRO: Harry Potter’s sleep inducing effect inspires a vision of LOTR: Frodo the Dude!

14 Jan

Sadly during the last 3 days I have maybe played LOTRO for less than 3 hours… 😦

Tsuhelm has managed to progress to lv51 in Moria.

That is all …

I have been failing to get out of bed in the mornings early enough to play and have not had time in the evenings! Due mainly to RW tiredness induced by falling trees and tidying up the ensuing garden disaster, and coupled with kid and wife duties…which have included the magic of Harry Potter…watched the first 4 movies on consecutive nights. I have found the true magic of Harry is the ability to knock out my nr.1 son and induce massive drowsiness in me! 

I had seen the first 3 so was expecting the somnolence…but was surprised by the continuing zzzz effect of 4… How many more to go?

After last weeks mash up of Hobbit and Pulp Fiction I have been thinking about a LOTR and Big Lebowski mix…Frodo could be the coolest dude ever!

Troll: [holding up a bowling ball] What the fuck is this?

The Dude (Frodo): Obviously you’re not a golfer.

OR

The Stranger(Gandalf?): [voiceover] Way out west there was this fella… fella I wanna tell ya about. Fella by the name of Frodo Baggins. At least that was the handle his loving parents gave him, but he never had much use for it himself. Mr. Baggins, he called himself “The Dude”. Now, “Dude” – that’s a name no one would self-apply where I come from. But then there was a lot about the Dude that didn’t make a whole lot of sense. And a lot about where he lived, likewise. But then again…                  …I won’t say a hero, ’cause, what’s a hero? But sometimes, there’s a hobbit. And I’m talkin’ about the Dude here. Sometimes, there’s a hobbit, well, he’s the hobbit for his time and place. He fits right in there. And that’s the Dude, in the Shire. And even if he’s a lazy hobbit – and the Dude was most certainly that. Quite possibly the laziest in the Shire, which would place him high in the runnin’ for laziest worldwide. But sometimes there’s a hobbit, sometimes, there’s a hobbit. Aw. I lost my train of thought here. But… aw, hell. I’ve done introduced him enough.

AND

Gandalf and Frodo:

The Stranger: There’s just one thing, Dude.

The Dude: And what’s that?

The Stranger: Do you have to use so many cuss words?

The Dude: What the fuck you talking about?

The Stranger: Okay, Dude. Have it your way.

Its obvious I need to play more LOTRO … watching too much Harry Potter is driving me doolally!

*Note: Although the items marked with an asterisk are in the “Store Exclusive” category in the LOTRO Store, they are in fact not exclusive to the store and can be bartered from Ráthulf in Esteldín.

EMOTES can also be selected…(from wiki again not so sure this is up to date as I can’t remember seeing all these in the in game store…)

Feather – You toss feathers into the air.

Groundroll – You roll around on the ground.

Howl – You howl!

Jazzhands  -You vigourously shake your hands.

Jjacks – You do some jumping jacks.

Wipesweat – You wipe sweat from your brow.

Mountrearup – Your mount rears up in a flourish.

Mountkick – presumably your mount kicks? The description is missing!

Mountbow – Your mount bows at your command.

Paper – You throw paper in a test of stone-paper-scissor.

Scissor – You throw scissor in a test of stone-paper-scissor.

Stone – You throw stone in a test of stone-paper-scissor.

I was really tempted to get the Mountrearup, so could relive all those Zorro and Lone Ranger moves…but after seeing some of the cosmetics am now tempted by the following…I have my favourite but you can try and suggest otherwise in this my first ever poll…I expect my loyal 22 readers will be fighting among themselves to vote!

Question what is a Hauberk? A Knee length shirt by the looks of the Lotro cosmetics…wikipedia put me right as it explains that:

A hauberk is a shirt of mail. The term is usually used to describe a shirt reaching at least to mid-thigh and including sleeves. Haubergeon (“little hauberk”) generally refers to a shorter variant with partial sleeves, but the terms are often used interchangeably.

So no chance of getting an old fashioned sleeping hauberk (sleeping gown) then…unless its made of chain mail…

LOTRO: MMO Juggler!

3 Jan

LOTRO: MMO Juggler!

In Korean: its do you want to die? But it sounds (to me!) like ‘juggler’!

I first encountered it in the famous KR love film 엽기적인 그녀 (‘My Sassy Girl’!) [horribly remade in US – avoid!]

220px-My_Sassy_Girl_Movie_Poster

Wikipedia page

Not being offensive towards MMO Juggler in any shape, way or form…in fact it is a compliment that he stimulated my creative juices sufficiently to produce it!

Go check out some great LOTRO posts: http://mmojuggler.wordpress.com

Keep on Juggling 🙂 How many MMO’s can you keep in the air at once?

RW insists on butting in with my VIP trial…

Day4 pt2 

As predicted was spent trying to get the pool clean. The old pump was used to get, the excess of water that we put in, out! Thankfully I did not have to SUCK it out (via a syphon). That was the easy bit.  Then I used every combination of pump setting in an attempt to get the bottom sucker to work…I almost gave up when I had a HOUSE moment and realised that the cover for the ‘sump’ was not just to keep stuff falling in but also to create a vacuum so that the 1 of the 2 inlets could be forced to suck…I even worked out how to switch between them!

After dinner, gardening, then showering of nr1 and 2 sons, then falling asleep with nr 1 while waiting for nr2 to finish showering…I woke up alone to my bemused wife’s non-amusement! So she did the kid sleeping and I got to shower then play LOTRO…ok here we go….

Opopa ran some quests around Budgeford, wolf slayer deed adv completed (as well as enmity :)), 2 stage of life of bounder wrapped and started on harvest fly slayer deed..realised something was wrong as I had nodded off mid game and couldn’t find that Yale height..time to log off and sleep..it was only 2300!

Day5 pt1

Again I turned my alarm off and only by miracle woke up in time to log in for Tsudryt to get a hobbit present and nearly get to Artisan Weaponsmith Guild Craft level…tomorrow will be the day…if I wake up! Claimed a hobbit present for Opopa while tying shoelaces and then off to work…

Its a blow that RW is blowing away the mind blowing experience that is being VIP!

But I have not blown any money in this, at least I do not need to syphon off my beer money, after all this is a suck it and see experiment.

The wind is blowing favourably that things will improve, I strike my fist down and land blow after blow on the computer defiantly.

Sucking in air, I blow my self up to full grandeur, before blowing out all the hot air, whistling and a wailing it blows out, as if I am blowing at a bagpipe.

It sucks that I don’t have more time, but I better not blow up about it.

Its a breath of fresh air I gladly suck in, blown by a turbine.
