Conqueror (Season 13)

Season 13 turned out to be my most productive Season, ever.  Typically, my goal is to complete Chapter I, Chapter II, Chapter III, and Chapter IV.  Doing so gives a player a full set and some goodies (such as a special portrait, a pet, and sometimes some wings).

The most attractive thing about Conqueror (at least, for me) is that players who complete it receive extra Stash space. My off-season Stash is very full of items, even after I weeded some of it out.  I was extremely motivated to earn some additional Stash space.

World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth Beta – Plenty of Dinosaurs

After Garhwa, my Highmountain Tauren Hunter, completed the Battle for Lordaeron in the World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth Beta, I decided to continue exploring. The next set of quests Garhwa picked up were in a brand new area that had plenty of dinosaurs.

This blog includes screenshots, Twitch videos, and commentary about my experience in the Battle for Azeroth beta. There are probably some spoilers here!

Jen’s Lore Corner: Squirt – Episode 002

Welcome to Jen’s Lore Corner, a podcast about the lore of the Diablo video game series. This podcast started as a segment on the Shattered Soulstone podcast. I decided to re-release those segments in their own podcast, with new episodes to follow.

In Episode 002, I talk about the small amount of lore we have about Squirt the Peddler.  She’s the little girl who sells goods to random, wandering, adventurers who come to the Hidden Camp. In this “tin foil hat” episode, I explain why I think Squirt is not a little girl at all – she’s actually an ancient god.

That Demon Named Pain

I wrote this poem on April 8, 2018, about the pain that my chronic illnesses inflict upon me. The poem was originally posted on Medium.  It earned me a whole seven cents shortly after I posted it – and nothing after that.

It is difficult to find poetry on Medium – and I think that is part of the reason why this poem got very little attention from readers. So, I pulled it off of Medium and moved it over here, to my own blog.  Maybe I should have just posted this poem here in the first place.

Memories of Toys R Us – Episode 036

In this episode, I read a piece of writing that I wrote on May 4, 2018. The inspiration for this piece came from something in the news. Toys R Us had filed for bankruptcy, and it looked like it wouldn’t be around much longer.  This caused me to feel nostalgia for Toys R Us.

I read “Memories of Toys R Us” in episode 036 of Words of Jen.

Ready Player One – by Ernest Cline

Wade Owen Watts, a poor kid who could be described as homeless, embarks upon an adventure in a virtual world. The OASIS is a vivid, incredibly detailed, virtual reality world that provides more opportunities than the real world does. Ready Player One can be described as a science-fiction dystopia story.

The OASIS was created by James Halliday and his business partner, Ogden Morrow. (The two grew apart over the years.) Upon Halliday’s death, a contest was announced. The first person to find Halliday’s “Easter egg” would receive Halliday’s entire fortune and corporation. Wade becomes an egg hunter, or “Gunter”, and makes a few friends who are on the same quest.

WARNING: This book review contains some spoilers!
