Adventures of Rug Burn: The Vaults

Adventures of Rug Burn: The Vaults

Talk about awe inspiring. Here I walk past the splendor of the dais that Lord Neverember is standing upon. Does he even look at me? Not a chance. He’s too self absorbed to notice one as lowly as me. To test my theory I flip him the bird as I walk by. Not a flinch from either him or his guards. I hear a gasp from the crowd but that’s about it. I smirk as I saunter past. No one challenges me as I push open the doors to the vaults and walk in. Shouldn’t there be more security here?

Adventures of Rug Burn: The Bridge

Adventures of Rug Burn: The Bridge

With Wilfred in hand, we rushed onto the bridge and the carnage that it contained. Catapults were dropping flaming piles of debris and undead were everywhere. We rushed down to assist the guards who were quickly cut down by undead archers and sword wielders. Not being one to throw caution to the wind, I rushed in to help. Four feet of cold steel cut deep into bone and flung corpses around with every swipe. I was a Orc unhinged. If it moved I cut it down. If it got in my way it regretted it. At one point Wilfred had to yell at me to come back from the brink of insanity. We slowly marched across the bridge taking on every undead skeleton or zombie we could find. As we neared the castle gate we encountered our first wight! I’m not sure what puss filled sore in hell this was spewed from but I didn’t care. I saw an obstacle and it had to be removed. I ran towards the target with death in my mind and a gleam in my eye. All of a sudden a burst of pain hit me square in the chest. The damn wight actually…

Adventures of Rug Burn: The beginning!

Adventures of Rug Burn: The beginning!

The morning dawned cool. Colder than it should be for this time of year. Mind you being dunked into the sea as your ship is torn apart does not help. As I groggily climb to my feet I see a figure off in the distance. I muster the energy to start towards him. “Hi my name is Wilfred. You look like shit!” I may be paraphrasing this as I’m still coughing up sea water and pulling seaweed out of my ears. I mumble something that sounds like words but I’m not completely sure it’s coherent! “Were you on that ship that was attacked last night?” he asked. I nod my head and a small starfish slides out of my hair and lands at my feet. I stare at it as Wilfred asks what brought me to Neverwinter! I tell him to mind his own business and where can I go to get some ale! “Travel north along the shore then take the path up the hill. Someone will be able to help you up there.” As I walk away following his instructions I can’t help but think why he was out here all by himself. Was he there to loot…

Neverwinter: Adventures of Rug Burn

Neverwinter: Adventures of Rug Burn

So I decided to create a new character in Neverwinter. One that would grow up in the newly expanded world of the Undermountain expansion. The first step was to delete an existing character to make room. I have purchased several character slots over the last couple years, but it becomes burdensome trying to keep them all going; so adding yet another slot seemed too much. So to make a slot available, I’d have to delete a character. Not wanting to lose any of the accumulated wealth on the character, I had to unload (sell) all the stuff I had. Then put the proceeds from those sales into the shared bank account. This I could then pass along to my new character. Once the character was stripped to his skivvies, all that was left was to perform the delete.

Neverwinter Undermountain expansion

Neverwinter Undermountain expansion

This week Arc Games dropped their latest Neverwinter expansion Undermountain. A hefty 6.2GB download that under certain circumstances wouldn’t be that bad, but when you live in a rural area and rely on wireless access for your internet, it can take a bit of time. So I like to jump onto the Xbox as soon as I know the patch is complete so that I can start the download. Nothing more frustrating then waking up at 3:00 am because you can not sleep, and hope to get some game time in, only to discover there’s an hour plus download coming your way. Having played Neverwinter for the past two years or so and getting very comfortable to two of the character classes, Trickster Rogue and Control Wizard, I waited with bated breath for what this expansion would bring. I had read that things were going to change and sometimes change is not always good. Expansions in the past didn’t change the game as much as this one is expect to so who knows how I’ll take to this one.
