    What was your favorite piece of content posted last week? 

  • August 22

    Oh boy, now that's a tough question. I'll take it from two angles (because you know...it's hard for me not to enjoy my own work so I'll split it into mine and others)

    Starting with my favourite piece of content from someone else. A Refutation of 'The Madmen of the Reach' or 'Legacy of the Star-Travellers' is probably taking up my number one spot there, they were both rather enjoyable reads that delved into some pretty cool topics. Through really the whole TSC Event is my favourite part of this week so, it's hard for me to just pick and choose from it.

    For my own content, it has to be Alduin is Real and he Shoor is Akatosh, it was just rather exciting to try something really new (my first real short story, first TSC Event, and some other things) and it was just fun to write.

    Hey, cool banner! Very nice :) I think Amo's project edges it by a hair, combining as it does various means of expression from diary entries, poems, and differing points of view... all told with pictures or otherwise artistically presented. His writing is raw and passionate, hard not to get swept up with him. Alas for Sotek's and Karver's work. Time ran out on their response to my enquiry.

    Well I would be lying if I said I didn't really enjoy that Scales-of-Iron storyline..... ;) Thanks Phil!

     

    In all seriousness though I really enjoyed Noodle's build for the Cyberpunk, it was new and different and despite taking a break from Fallout content to get a little fantasy time in with the ever lovely Skyrim, it really got me thinking about what I want to do when I drift back into the Wasteland.

    I also really liked The Tale of Verdfolnir as the mythic era story about Ysgramor and the nedes arrival in Skyrim plays into what is likely my next Skyrim project character blog thing (details are still...fluid) that will delved into that section of lore and therefore Phil's story really jump started my brain and helps to inspire me which I think is one of the most important parts of the weekly highlights.

    I don't play Fallout at all, but even so, I still enjoyed Noodle's build. Even though I had no clue what was going on while reading through it, I was still familiar with Noodle's way of presenting that makes me love all of his builds. Duvain's Yin-Yang Monk looks really good too, I'm expecting it to be as well presented as all of his other builds, definitely looking forward to its completion. I'm also looking forward to seeing what Deebs will do with his Rust and Steam build, the Exotic races event was pretty exciting.

    Yeah, got to be said that if there was one build that actually makes me want to play Fallout, it would be The Cyberpunk. There's something in it that resonates and provides a depth which I can actually get to grips with.

    I've added Felkros's TOC to the list as I accidentally missed it when gathering the posts, and just wanted to let everyone know. Thanks to everyone who's responded so far, and apologies for not having done so yet. One the one hand, I feel like I shouldn't. On the other, I'm keeping myself busy. I stood near some glowing barrels to get this sweet third arm for doin more stuff. I'm really happy to see people enjoying the Roundups, though, so thank you for liking and commenting.
