The Let’s Play Skyrim saga reaches an epic (?) crescendo… 

There will be a delay in video updates while Evan’s computer is being repaired. Which also means no Torchlight 2 for us. Sad times!

Meanwhile in Vvardenfell, I’m off to the start of a fantastic Morrowind adventure now that I’ve modded the game to the gills. The graphic and sound overhaul is great, but… I’ll cop to amending the game mechanics as well by installing a revamped leveling system, health and magicka regen, and base run-speed increase (it’s not cheating because NPCs get the boost too!).

Goofing around in Skyrim made me nostalgic for good old Morrowind, so I booted her up for a fresh adventure. Once I settle on which mods to install, I’ll get to playing in earnest. While searching through the available offerings, I found this site and associated mod: The Census and Excise Office, a.k.a. Facebook for Morrowind. Integrating social media with video games isn’t exactly brand-new ground, but how often does social media get integrated with a game that’s been out for a decade? For that matter, how many games still have an active modding community after that long? I’m looking forward to kicking the tires on this one. And just for funsies, I’m using the Crystal Egg Hunt mod as well.

Also, Evan and I have both preordered Torchlight 2, which comes out in just two short days. Cue giant watery anime eyes.
