Transitioning to Legion - Part 2-2 (Ori and Amber's Story, Continued)

(This is me writing a series based on all of my characters transitioning into the Legion expansion. As I've shared on here before, I'm an RP'er, so I want to make sure that my character's stories come into Legion without a lot of issues. Welcome to the second part of part 2, about the Springshadow cousins).

Early Thoughts on Hearthstone: The Grand Tournament

As you likely know, the newest expansion for Hearthstone, the World of Warcraft based Collectible Trading Card Game, came out on Monday. Hooray! Like seriously, I had been excited for this for what felt like months, and now it's finally here. So, as you would expect from a loud-mouthed, brash dwarf - here are my thoughts on what TGT is like.

As I've shared on here before, I'm an RP'er, so I want to make sure that my character's stories come into Legion without a lot of issues. This is the second part of the series, which focuses on Amber and Orienda Springshadow, who are cousins).

Transitioning to Legion - Part 1 (Velly's Story)

Note: This is a selection of RP stories that I will be putting together in order to transition all of my characters into Legion, because there are a few that will definitely have their stories pushed and prodded during this period of time. I will also have TAW stuff, but since I didn't get any questions, I felt like this would be a good way to get through August.

That being said, this first one (and maybe the second?) will be about Veliya Rebelclaw, my Night Elf Druid.

Thoughts on World of Warcraft: Legion

So, I know, I'm a little late on the boat, but I post on Tuesdays and I wanted to stay on schedule. :) Anyway, I watched the livestream like the total and complete nerd that I am, and there are a lot of things that I'm going to be putting together when it comes out. Anyway, here's a quick look at some of the things that really stood out to me during the streaming event.

The Great Hearthstone Experiment

So, I decided to try a big experiment when it comes to Hearthstone. I had a number of friends who say to me that they would like to get into Hearthstone, but they don't want to spend money and/or they worry that they're too late to the game in order to really get into it. That being said, I decided to start an account on the EU server and the Asia server and decided to move forward in two different ways in order to try and get my account going - with no cash investment on my part. I found that my EU technique worked better (Asia I just tried to do adventures, and it didn't build the collection up fast enough in my opinion). So, here's a look at some tips if you're just getting into Hearthstone.

Callout for Topics and An Announcement!

August is coming up soon, and because of that, my life is about to get absolutely nuts. Why? A few things.

  • Nim and Jay, who I have mentioned on here a number of times, are having a little baby boy! I get to be Aunt Fari! Well, not Aunt Fari. It would be pretty funny if I ended up Aunt Fari, but I'll likely be just Aunt Marti. Anyway, I will be down there for at least a week during the month, helping around the house as Nim goes back to work. 
  • Visiting my GF, who is at her summer job for the summer (about 2 hours from here). I'll be there some this week, and I will probably be down there at least once more this month. 
  • Going up north to visit my family. Good Lord, I'm not even really going to be here this month, lol. Anyway, I plan on going there between all of this craziness and seeing family and other people that I love. I'll have computer with me though, so that's helpful at least. I can still write, just the busyness will make the creativity a little stagnant. 
  • Writing my book! If you follow me on my main website, Marti's Miscellany, you will see that I have been talking about writing a book for about a year or so. August is when I will be cracking down and trying to get that first draft out and to those who are going to be editing it.
So, since August is going to be nonstop for crazy old me, I will need a little bit of help keeping the weekly content flowing on The Achievement Warrior. So here I am, calling out for topics! I prefer to keep the whole thing 

Also: an announcement! Starting in September (after the first draft of the book is done), I plan to be writing on TAW twice a week! Tuesdays will continue to be about WoW, but Fridays, I plan on writing about other gaming topics, including Hearthstone, board games, other video games, and more. TAW is going to become a lot more well rounded!  

If you haven't been there yet, go and check out my Patreon page. If you like what I'm doing here and on Marti's Miscellany and you want to support website hosting and all of that, please give so that I can continue! 

Well Met!
