It All Makes Sense Now

“It All Makes Sense Now” is a Feat of Strength Achievement that players could earn during the pre-launch events for the World of Warcraft: Legion expansion.  Players had to gather specific pamphlets from the Doomsayers that were scattered through either Stormwind or Orgrimmar.

The individual pamphlets were distributed randomly, and there was a fifteen minute cooldown between when a player could get one pamphlet and when the Doomsayers would give him or her another one.  The best way to earn this Achievement was to just keep trying.

Hatred and Discipline by Micky Neilson

Hatred and Discipline is a short story that was released in 2012. It was part of something Blizzard was doing in the days before Diablo III was released. You can read Hatred and Discipline online (or download it as a PDF).

Blizzard revealed each of the five classes of playable characters in Diablo III, one by one, before the release of the game.  There was a “Gathering of the Heroes” page (which has since been taken down) where players could watch a class video, and learn more about a specific class.

There was a short story that accompanied the information about each of the classes.  Hatred and Discipline focuses on a Demon Hunter named Valla.

The artwork you see in this post came from the Battle.net website.  When Hatred and Discipline was posted, it used this artwork (but cropped it so that it focused on the Demon Hunter’s face.

Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn

Camille Preaker works for a daily paper in Chicago that can be described as “second-rate”.  Her editor, Frank Curry (who is also a friend in a parental kind of way) sends Camille on her very first assignment.

A murder happened in Wind Gap, Camille’s hometown.  This wasn’t news, as the murder happened long enough ago to have already passed through the news cycle.  A pre-teen girl was found dead in a creek with a rope around her neck and all of her teeth missing.  Now, another pre-teen girl has disappeared.

Season Journey Chapter IV (Season 7)

Chapter IV Season 7 completeChapter IV of the Season Journey in Season 7 included objectives that were different from the Season 6 version of Chapter IV.  Things get changed around from one Season to the next, and I think that helps keep things interesting.

I completed Chapters I – III with very little difficulty.  Chapter IV provided a challenge (and slowed down my progress a bit).

Neko Atsume: Joe DiMeowgio

Joe DiMeowgio is one of the “Rare Cats” in Neko Atsume.  The way to attract one of these special cats is to place the item they prefer into your yard/home.  Joe DiMeowgio will only use the item called “Baseball”.   It is one of many types of balls that the Neko Atsume cats will play with.

It took a long time between when I started leaving the Baseball in the yard and when Joe DiMeowgio first appeared.  Or, at least, it felt that way to me.  It seems like he visits more frequently now when I set the Baseball out.
