Seekers Notes: Love and Friendship Collection

Seekers Notes is a “find the hidden object” game. The player becomes The Seeker and must find a series of hidden objects in each location they go to. In addition, the player must find special objects that the people of Darkwood ask for.

Darkwood is under a curse, and this is why objects go missing. The storyline is creepy, and well written. There are some holiday events for players to work their way through. The Love and Friendship Collection is part of the Magic of Music event.

Jen’s Lore Corner: Zunimassa – Episode 009

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 this episode, I dig into the little bit of lore we have about a powerful, influential Witch Doctor named Zunimassa. Everything we know about her comes from the flavor text of the Zunimassa’s Haunt set.

Seekers Notes: Lonely Pianist Collection

Seekers Notes is a game where the player becomes The Seeker and must find hidden objects in the many locations within the game. In addition, NPCs (non-player characters) will ask the player to find a specific object for them.

The Lonely Pianist Collection is part of the series of quests that are part of the Magic of Music event. It is technically the third quest chain in the event, but counts as the second one. This is possibly because the actual second quest chain does not end with a Collection.

Depo Provera Made Me Sick

Years ago, (somewhere in the early 2000s) I decided to start using a hormonal birth control. After doing some research, I thought that Depo Provera would be a good choice.

It is administered by shot every three months, and is one of the most effective forms of birth control. Unfortunately for me, Depo Provera made me very sick – and the side effects are still here all these years later.

Warning: This blog post is going to contain a lot of what many may feel is “too much information”. It is probably not something everyone will feel comfortable reading. This post is also very long.

Seekers Notes: Magic of Music Event

Seekers Notes is a puzzle game with an engaging storyline. The town of Darkwood is cursed, and the player (who becomes The Seeker) must find a way to fix that problem. It is a dark and creepy game with lovely artwork.

This involves picking up quests from a variety of NPCs (non-player characters) who ask The Seeker to find a specific item. The player goes to a certain location and tries to find all the hidden objects before time runs out. There’s a chance the requested item will appear after the player completes a location.

The Magic of Music Event is a holiday event that appears right around (American) Thanksgiving Day. The event only lasts for a limited time. I decided to make a few blogs about my progress through this event.

Book Reviews, fiction 0 comments on Gone Girl – by Gillian Flynn

Gone Girl – by Gillian Flynn

Nick and Amy Dunne have what appears (from the outside) to be a perfect marriage. Both of them make their living as writers – for different publications. Both are good looking and visually appear to be a good match. Gone Girl is the story of what happens when a marriage ends – and the wife suddenly disappears.

Gillian Flynn is the author of Sharp Objects, which became a New York Times Bestseller. Gone Girl is not a sequel to Sharp Objects. Both stories have plenty of twists and turns, which leave the reader guessing about what is really going on.

This is definitely one of those books that is difficult to review because of the chance of unintentionally revealing spoilers.

Kitchen Scramble App: Fallwoods

Fallwoods is an “extra” town in the Kitchen Scramble app.  It appears for a limited amount of time. Players must complete it before time runs out.

Fallwoods is focused on Thanksgiving foods. Players get an oppertunity to practice each one before starting a level. Those who make it all the way to the end of this town earn a unique appliance that carries over into the regular game.

Holiday Events, World of Warcraft 0 comments on Riglee Finishes Hallow’s Eve

Riglee Finishes Hallow’s Eve

Hallow’s End is my favorite of all the World Events in World of Warcraft. I’ve been slowly working my way through it with my main, Riglee (a Gnome Death Knight). The main problem was that she was always too low a level to even try and earn some of holiday related achievements.

This year, Riglee was somewhere around Level 96 or so when Hallow’s End started. I was able to get her through almost all of the Hallow’s End achievements – with one exception. Riglee hit Level 99 near the end of the World Event, and needed to be Level 100 in order to find Scarecrow Pepe in her Garrison.
