Love is in the Air

It’s been some time since I posted screen-shots of my in-game action, and there is quite a bit to catch up on. Enjoy the scenery, won’t you?


A rapturous explosion of sun-worship




Trajectory of a trebuchet: hit the wall which has the health bar!

Ballistae and a battering ram at the door of a keep – ’tis all about the penetration.


The Doctor has taken up the scroll…

…run, you clever boy!

The TARDIS has been crowned Empress!

Time for some much-needed, well-earned rest and relaxation.

Admiring a newly acquired statue…

Sepultur’a greets her consort.

Wine and music in the private courtyard…

Titanborn sings and plays a soft serenade for his lady love.

The empress, resplendent in her regalia!

Busy Week Ahead

My calendar shows a busy, eventful week ahead.

Game-wise, the latest DLC of The Elder Scrolls Online drops on Monday. Dragon Bones hearkens back to The Elder Scrolls Online V: Skyrim in the same way two other chapters paid homage to TESO III: Morrowind. The history and lore maintains accuracy and cohesion, thanks to the dedication of their lore-masters.

Tuesday is Mardi Gras – “Fat Tuesday.”

Maha Shivaratri will also be celebrated.

Wednesday is Valentine’s Day and Ash Wednesday. Is that ironic or what?

Thursday marks the only New Moon in February 2018; there is no full moon in February 2018. Another rarity is January and March both having a “Blue Moon” in the same year. Neil DeGrasse Tyson might know when this phenomenon will occur next!


Last, but certainly not least, Friday marks the Lunar New Year. Officially it is Chinese New Year 4715, a Yin year of the Earth Dog.

In light of these festivities, I decided to set off a Cherry Bomb to start the week off with a bang.

More explosive demonstrations are forthcoming. More music will follow as well.

Ready to party? Let’s go.


Excerpt: Metamorphosis (Re-blogged)

Here’s a re-blog of a bit of my fan fiction. New excerpts are imminent.

Eyrie Of An Aries

*** Author’s Note: Here is another excerpt of my fiction, edited to keep this post short and sweet. ***

The moons shine softly in the glade, casting their light on the statue of the Forest Lord. Behind her, the portal flares brightly, then fades and winks out. Barefoot, she walks towards the statue, which seems to gleam with an inner luminescence of its own. This statue is identical to the one that she saw in the grove before entering the portal, but looks to have been freshly-carved in comparison to its slightly weathered, moss-and-lichen-encrusted twin.

Of course, she thinks to herself. This is the realm of the Forest Lord, under his control and timeline. I am…between worlds.

She stands before the stag-headed stone effigy and gazes for a long moment, taking in the primal grandeur. The powerful build of the demigod as he brandishes his spear; his wolf…

Excerpt: Welcome Respite (Re-blogged)

I had a lot of fun writing the TESO fan-fiction for the 2016 NaNoWriMo and posted some of the excerpts on the official gaming forums.

This is one of my personal favourites.


Eyrie Of An Aries

*** Author’s Note: This is the first of some new excerpts of my fan-fiction, which was written during the NaNoWriMo challenge for 2016. I’m still debating on whether or not to participate in this year’s challenge, but I’ll be certain to let you know if I do!

Thunder rumbles overhead. This third storm in a fortnight heralds the changing of the seasons here in the tropical southwest of the continent. Steady rain falls and patters on the canvas tops of the merchant wagons at the trading post, the roofs of the various businesses and residences surrounding the merchant’s circle, and the carved stone top of the local transitus shrine.

Water runs down the curved stone pathway near the gated wall separating this province from the adjoining one; the extra security has been a necessity since the onset of the war. This pathway leads up the hill to…

Sunday Screen-Shots

This evening wouldn’t be complete without some recent screen-shots, along with a bit of music. If you’re freezing your buns off across the USA then these five tunes should get you feeling warm in no time at all.


5 On Friday: Musical Favourites

The new year arrives 10 days from today.

I have updated, edited, and streamlined my ‘About’ page and ‘Comment Policy.’ This blog page will still be titled ‘sepultura13,’ but the tags of ‘Random Ramblings’ and ‘Myriad Musings’ appear to be overused and worn out. The new header for this blog will be revealed in the new year.

For this “5 on Friday” post I offer the songs which used to grace my ‘About’ page. There is one minor song change but I think that it will go unnoticed. Nobody really read the page to begin with. C’est la vie.


New Life Festival Screen-Shots: 1st Post 2017! (Re-blogged)

This in-game festival has returned, with new items and rewards to earn. I’ll take some screen-shots and post them when the event is over. Here’s a re-blog of images taken from last year.


Eyrie Of An Aries

Well, here we are…1 January of 2017! I say “1st Post 2017,” because it is my first original post typed with my own fingers, not a re-blog of someone else’s post. I’m going to be doing some gaming and live-streaming the footage if the program decides to cooperate. In the meantime, please enjoy these in-game screen-shots that I took while taking part in the New Life Festival. I’m enjoying the fun, seasonal things that are being added to the game – they’re very entertaining. I’m also looking forward to checking out the player housing on the Public Test Server in a week or so! I usually don’t do ‘spoilers,’ but I really want to see what’s in store.

Talk at you all later!

Shameless Gaming Promotion! ***UPDATED*** (Re-blogged)

Another free-play weekend is in full swing, so my regular readers know what I’m going to be doing! Feel free to check out my Twitch channel to watch the action and merry mayhem.


Eyrie Of An Aries

All righty, fellow freaks and geeks, nerds and ‘Blerds,’ Dudes and Dudettes, Cosplayers and ERPers…are ya doing anything this weekend? Stuck inside because of the weather or some seasonal bug going around the office or school? Are you bored shitless with your current game (or waiting to buy a new one?), movie, or other guilty pleasure and just looking for something different, and perhaps fun? Well, check this out: The good people at Zenimax Online® Studios (ZOS), in their infinite wisdom, are opening up the virtual world of The Elder Scrolls® Online to all – whether you’re a complete and total newb, or a long-timer who just let your account lapse, come join in on the fun and see what’s what!

As a disclaimer, I get no monetary compensation for this shameless advertising and promotion of this game…I’m simply hoping to add to my roster of friends and guild…

Release the Kraken!

The Razer Kraken(TM) Pro V2 gaming headset that I ordered on Black Friday has arrived – just in time for the latest free-play gaming weekend being offered by The Elder Scrolls Online!

Here are some of the details from the official site:

Tamriel awaits, adventurer. Continuing our #10MillionStories celebration, we’re thrilled to announce a Free Play event for both PlayStation®4 and PC/Mac players. If you’re a PlayStation®Plus member, or want to try the game on PC/Mac, here’s everything you need to know to play ESO for free this weekend!

The PlayStation®4 and PC/Mac Free Play event will begin on November 30 and run until December 6.

If on PlayStation®4, you’ll need a PlayStation®Plus membership in order to download and play the game. If playing on PC/Mac, you can download and play for free via The Elder Scrolls Online official site or Steam.

All new ESO accounts are gifted 500 free crowns for use in the in-game Crown Store, allowing you to pick up some useful items such as potions, XP Scrolls, food, or an adorable pet! If you’ve played ESO during previous free-play events for your platform, you’ll find that any previous characters and progression will remain, allowing you to continue your adventures in Tamriel as if you never left. If you decide to buy ESO after the free play event, your characters will be waiting for you.

The ESO game client will be approximately 80GB in size, so ensure you have enough space on your machine’s hard drive for the download.”

I love it when a free-play weekend is announced! I always look forward to meeting and helping new players, and if they join any guild that I belong to then it is a personal bonus. I hope that I’ve inspired at least one of my readers to join in on the fun; the best part of this is, there are no commitments required!

Three Songs on a Saturday!

The gaming continues in earnest, as there are a few events going on through the end of the month. These include an epic contest with awesome in-game and real-life prizes, the chance to earn three free crown crates whether you subscribe or not, a free mount for those who have the “full package,” and a free pet for everyone!

Enjoy the music, and be sure to check out my Twitch channel for the live-stream of in-game action. The caveat, as always, is the potential for crashes and other fun malfunctions when there is a higher-than normal in-game population stressing the gaming servers!
