Campfire's In Darkfall

Campfires are one of the recent additions to DarkFall. I happened to see this one infront of the bank. In my opinion they seem good for crafting food on the go, but I would rather just bring enough food for me in the first place and do my cooking at a proper station. That's just me however. And this WOULD help if you were really out in the middle of nowhere and needed to make some food badly.

A Tour of Sorgom

As you know I have recently been baising my adventures out of a city called Sorgom. I showed you a little of the city in a previous post, but I wanted to show you a little more. This is a stone dedicated to the god Melek! I'm not exactly sure what use it is for, but you can find stones like these in all the Alfar cities.

The first thing you see when you enter the vicinity of Sorgom... a fantastic Alfar statue!

Sorgom is almost like a paradise. I love the water outside it, it's defensible position, too bad it is NPC controlled!

This is the lift you need to take to get to Sorgom. There are actually two lifts and two levels too the cliffs. Very defensible!

Here's a nice shot of the lift in different light. (Bonus: guard tower! These things are a boon.)

Exploring even further around the city Sorgom

I grab a couple wands, some basic gear, and I hit the road! I'm ready to explore the lands around me. I don't plan on doing much major killing or looting, I just want to see what is out there. Exploring in DarkFall can be so much fun!

And I did find something really interesting! These statues are genuinely creepy and scary...

What an evil looking thing!

Exploring More

Nothing huge to note here, other then some monsters professor and I were not able to kill. Good times exploring in DarkFall!

Skeleton Ruins

Exploring around the city... I found some ruins! Nearby there is a dead city with some skeletons in it. They hit really hard and I'll need to gear up to try and fight them. Their loot really wasn't all that good either. Not the best place to grind, but an interesting find.

Nearby there is a pool of acid, these pools are all over the Alfar lands and often contain something interesting. I wouldn't swim in them however...

Goblin' shootin!

Hehe, gotta love this! The sign says "No Sign Shootin!" and of course it's full of arrows... always nice to see little unique things in the world.

Goblins are really fairly useless to kill. They give you some skill ups, some harvesting tools, and a little bit of gold. But really there are far better monsters to hunt then goblins.

Nonetheless the shamans are a little tough and if your not carefull the goblins can definitely kill you. Always gotta stay sharp in DarkFall.

This area has treated me pretty good too, I've only been ganked twice in the week I've been here.

Professor makes an appearance in this shot.

Thanks and stay tuned for more!

A Return To Darkfall, and To Blogging!

I've been absent from blogging for a little while now, but I'm ready to get back into things! Perhaps it was the MMO's I was playing at the time, or perhaps it was real-life. Either way, every blogger deserves a break every now and then.

And yet, I don't exactly look at it like that. Blogging is something I truly enjoy doing. That is why this blog will not "blog-fade" because I will blog no matter what! I like this stuff, and I have missed doing it. So with my return to DarkFall I return to this blog and hopefully I can share some great adventures. :)

With my return I must escape my current location and return to a place of refuge. You see, I left DarkFall in a clan called 420. So when I returned to the world I was in 420's city and no longer a member of the clan. (Like other PvP MMOs, DarkFall limits the amount of people in a clan and in a city, so I was kicked out to make room for active players, I plan to re-join 420 eventually)

420 IS a PvP clan, so their city is really not a safe place to be. So I set off for my homelands, the Alfar lands, where I know I have a place of refuge!

The above screenshot is the first Alfar city I came across. After leaving the green lands of the elves, the Mahirim, this city was the first beacon of hope I came across.

The desert is full of strange, and dangerous, plants!

Darkfall has two moons, a blue one...

And a red one!

I'm going to rest here tonight, and try to get deeper into the Alfar lands to the south tomorrow. Wish me luck!

(edit: this was supposed to go up yesterday, oh well, you can read this one first and the previous post 2nd if you wish to stay in order, no big deal)

Continuing the Dark Fall adventure

As I mentioned yesterday, in DarkFall I have been journeying further south into the Alfar lands. I no longer had a base of operations in the elf lands and so I need to find a refuge in my homeland.

(some time later)

Well I'm here! I made it! I don't have any pictures of the journey down here, as it was fairly uneventful (other then being killed twice... but things happen so fast it's hard to document) but here I am in Sorgom, the Alfar city!

Sorgum will be my new place of resource and refuge, a starting point for my adventures over the next month or so. I still plan to re-join 420 before too long, but this will be a great place to train myself.

Ahhh the bank... always a crowd gathered in a place like this!

I couldn't help but chuckle at this "girl's" name...

Tomorrow... some action shots!
