Blog About Stuff 9-Aug-2017

Whatever I feel like talking about, games, fantasy, random rants, or whatever…

Playing through Skyrim again, building my house, Lakeview Manor, near Falkreath. But hell, everyone playing Skyrim has this house. lol!

Yo! Blizzard Entertainment! You guys just never got it. A lot of us didn’t want those stupid garrisons you stuck us with in Warlords of Draenor. We didn’t want something tied to game progression either on or offline. We just wanted a player house. Something we could customize and have for our own, to kick it. Not have it tied to our whole darn progression you doofuses.

Skyrim is a bit cookie cutter, but that’s the thing at least the game can be modded, so that people can add or change things they don’t like. I wish more games would follow this kind of sandbox model and allow players to make the game, or at least certain aspects of it, their own.

Once you add all the stuff in it you’re all set to go, you can even hire a bard and a house maid. It begs the question why the devs at Blizzard are too arrogant to put in a proper player house- not the garrisons like they did, but the kind of player houses people get in every game besides WoW. I just think it would be cool to have a place for your character to “kick it” and have a lot of their stuff there- and without it being a damn garrison like in Warlords.

Meanwhile, latency issues, disconnections, DDoS and screens like this are becoming almost a norm on World of Warcraft lately in recent months, hence, this meme of “The New Normal” for World of Warcraft. And how does Blizzard “Customer Service” (@BlizzardCS) handle it on Twitter? They just send you here. This is why the problem never gets better, because Blizzard simply “handles” it always dishing out that same “canned answer” to everyone like their paid automatons are trained to do.

“By the power of Greyskull!” Oh, wait, wrong universe! lol! Getting an upgrade on my artifact weapons on my monk.

 

Luckily I don’t deal with any of those issues on Skyrim. WoW and Second Life represent pretty much my only two online gaming/MMO/social gaming experiences anymore. I’m just not big on online stuff- too many trolls, too much online drama. I like games I can just put on my computer or a console and just enjoy for myself where I don’t have to care what anyone thinks about it. What about the “social aspect”? I’m oldschool, I see my friends IRL. I don’t need the drama, life’s too short. I got my website, I can post a blog if I feel like it, and if people read it, great, and if they don’t, who cares? I’d rather have 2 people read it that appreciate what I have to say than 500 trolls that don’t. A lot of the internet is just a troll trove and a sewer anymore so who cares.

 

 

Outside of the gaming for LEISURE, you just gotta get out and see the real world, live IRL. I love this meme- this says it all. I quit raiding. I am no longer going to raid in World of Warcraft for example other than playing “LFR Hero” just to see the cinematics and the bosses, etc. enough to satify my curiosities. But I’m not going to raid hours and hours a week anymore. I don’t play half as much as I used to. I do a lot more websurfing these days than I do stuff on it. I guess I just don’t care to participate in a lot of online venues anymore other than just looking around at things of interest. But I will still post my blogs here when I feel like it. I have no set schedule for this. It’s just whenever I feel like writing something I guess.

 

Meanwhile CBS/Paramount is getting ready to unleash another piece of shit Star Trek reboot on us in the form of Star Hack Discovery coming up this fall. I swear CBS can take a pile of shit and slap the “Star Trek” label on it and some people will accept whatever they dish out. It was like in Anime and music circles years ago, when I used to denote distinguishing fans who were selective and knew how to find the good stuff on their own vs those who just accepted anything they were handed. I call the latter group “dupes” because they’re too damn stupid to think for themselves. I always respected those who didn’t just accept anything they were given, always did their own thinking, and were more discriminating about what they accept from these media companies. I care what true Trekkies think- those who liked the Original Star Trek, maybe TNG, DS9, Voyager, but knew when to stop at Enterprise, Abrams, and now this crap. I have to wonder about people who just blindly accept the Abrams timeline changes and this new reboot. They either claim to be “Trek” fans and have no loyalty to the original, or are NuTrek fans who want to say they are fans of this stuff but don’t know dick about anything before Abrams came along. I don’t care what any of those people think honestly.

 

So CBS thinks this is a pre-Pike era ship? Hardly looks like it. The visuals for this piece of shit show hardly look like anything I saw on the episode “The Cage” from the 1960s. And not just because of 1960s props- there are fan shows that take painstaking efforts to duplicate that style- no reason a studio can’t do it, maybe with a little updating perhaps.

WTF is this supposed to be? A pizza cutter? A bottle opener? What the hell kind of drugs was someone on when they made up this ship design anyways? Why are there cuts in the saucer section? Do they serve a purpose? This just looks like another piece of shit Jar Jar Abrams-inspired poor excuse of a spaceship, and not something worth tuning in for.

 

This is a “Klingon” now. You guys who have been dressing up like Klingons since 1980 have been doing it wrong, you need to do it like this now, and throw out the dreadlock wigs. This is now what a Klingon looks like according to the new CBS shit show. CBS owns the rights, so I guess that gives them the right to change how everything looks. So somehow a Klingon is supposed to magically go from this to how they looked in the original TV series in 10 years? I could buy this series if they would just come out and admit it was a reboot and it was 10 years prior to the events of the Abrams movies. This looks nothing whatsoever like the “Prime Timeline” Star Trek at all. Not the ships, not the Klingons, not the band uniforms the crew is wearing, none of it.

Funny how the new Discovery “Klingons” more closely resemble this cosplayer from Galaxy Quest than they do Klingons from Star Trek. Like WTF again?! And people will, and have said to me “Well you haven’t seen the show yet, how do you know how it’s going to be?” – because I don’t like the visuals so far, so no I’m not going to want to watch it. Ever heard of “first impressions”?

 

Let’s review– The guy on the left is an original TV series Klingon. the guy in the middle represents the way Klingons pretty much looked from the first motion picture all the way through DS9, Voyager, etc. etc. even though those Klingons went through slight variation, the general appearance was similar; ridges on the foreheads, samurai beards, long hair/dreadlocks, etc. The only difference between the TOS Klingons and the guy in the middle outside of the uniforms, is the ridges on the foreheads and the big dreadlock wigs. Otherwise they both have shaded skin, samurai beards, the eyebrows, etc. Now on the right, they expect us to completely dismiss the last 50 years of how Klingons look and accept this new shit look they have. The guy on the right has no hair, and has a smashed-in, stretched face. Like WTF? Did he headbutt a freaking wall 50 times?

All I can say to CBS and Paramount at this point is “F**k you!” They put out the crappy Abrams movies where they wiped out the original Trek timeline just so they could completely erase the previous 40-45 years of Star Trek, say that all of the original series, TNG, Voyager, and DS9 no longer counts as “canon” so they could write new canon and say “this is Star Trek now” and you’re expected to discard all your old Trek for the new crap. That is what a reboot does- it says “the old story is no longer canon, this is the story now”. That’s why the comic books keep restarting with issue 1, that’s why they keep rebooting movie franchises, to do away with the original stories, wipe the slate clean and start new. You’re expected to forget what the original story was. It’s like literary Orwellianism at its finest. So CBS and Paramount, instead of trying to make this right with the new series, just goes right ahead with a new reboot while lying through their teeth and claiming “Oh, this is Prime Timeline” – bullshit it is, meanwhile they’re suing people doing fan films who are doing way better stuff then CBS or Paramount could ever do. CBS and Paramount can take all their post-2009 so-called Star Trek TV-and movies and shove them up their ass, along with their “fan movie rules” too. If I make original characters or stories, they are mine, whether they are my own original works or whether I cross them with a Star Trek fan fiction. It doesn’t make me own anything that directly references Star Trek, but f**k you CBS, I still own my original content in the form of other characters or other works. You guys can eat shit on those fan rules of yours.

Here! These are Klingons from the original TV Series Star Trek- the ORIGINAL Star Trek, the ORIGINAL Klingons- the ones which all other Klingons were based off of. Screw that crap from Discovery!

 

How about some Klingons from the Next Generation Star Trek? These are cool Klingons too! Qa’pla! I’ll even take these guys! At least they aren’t the depature from Klingon appearance that Discovery is.

 

Here is a Classic Klingon battle cruiser. I dread to see what they come up with in Discovery.

This is the “Prelude to Axanar” – a short fan video which is very top notch that proves it is possible to have a quality Trek production, use traditional Star Trek imagery, characters, and ideas, and look current to today’s video standards. This video, if I didn’t know better, looks almost official to me. But CBS just decided to sue this out of production and do the Discovery reboot. Fuck CBS!

Another great series with a tragically short run is Star Trek Continues, which is going to end now with the 11th episode, as a result of the Axanar lawsuit. And now no new Star Trek fan video can be longer than 15 minutes and there’s a whole list of rules to make sure all new Trek fan films completely suck and are devoid of any true creativity or expression so that CBS can try to force everyone to accept their shitty reboot crap. They can keep it.

 

 

It isn’t Discovery I’ll be watching this fall, like many other tried and true loyal Trek fans not happy about CBS/Paramount screwing with Trek’s otherwise longstanding lore, I will be checking out The Orville. This is the big competition that seems to be drawing many Trek fans away from Discovery. Like the movie Galaxy Quest, The Orville is a Star Trek-like parody that in this case, is more like Star Trek than anything Jar Jar Abrams has done or that CBS is planning to put out in the form of Discovery. If nothing else this show almost looks like a “Star Trek: The Next Generation” parody offshoot. But that’s the thing, we’re stuck now in doing reboots and prequels with Star Trek, instead of taking the story from Star Trek: Nemesis and continuing forward- what happens 10 years later? 20? What about 50 years later? Why can’t we see a new show that happens years after Nemesis that shows us the direction things have gone since then? But that’s not what CBS wants to do. Like many studios now, it’s no longer about creativity or originality, it’s only about the quick buck. So it’s going to be shows like this that draw fans now. Or else we’ll have to look to fan films, independent and underground releases, or if you’re like me, you pretty much abandon television and most movies and find other ways to entertain yourself; writing, drawing, or any other creative hobbies that pass the time.

Moving right along…

I can’t do anything about CBS and Paramount screwing up Star Trek in movies and TV but at least I know places I can have my own Trek stuff that looks like it’s supposed to. ‘Nuff said! I built the navigator console and the consoles in the wall slots shown in the picture. I got the chairs, ship and screens from other sources.

I did build my own replica of the K-7 bar from the “Tribbles” episode for my ship though. I just changed the color of the wall behind the shelves from red to blue and the color of the bar from orange to Navy Blue, but otherwise I got it as close to the K-7 bar as I could. They also had an odd-looking contraption above the food hatch, but I put a console there. I did build the other console on the wall behind it- it was an odd shape to work with for texturing, that’s for sure.

My engineering room. I built the upper deck. And aside from the blue “warp plasma” inside the tube above, the 2 consoles on the far right wall and the 2 flat panels on the left side wall, I built everything else shown.

More consoles I built. The middle panels on the left console, and the middle and right set of lights on the right standalone console have animated lights. I build these for my personal use and do not sell anything I build and the only people who get copies are people who know me personally. So I don’t believe I’m violating any “fan rules”. But I don’t really give a shit about those since I’m not selling my Trek builds. And if it comes down to it a lot of my builds (though not all) can be recolored, re-textured, and re-purposed into “generic sci-fi” consoles so then it’s not “Trek”.

In my sick bay– a medical scanner I built. Also some tall “medical jars” of some kind I made in the background. The medical scanner has a Photoshop-textured panel I created, plus some actual switches and lights I made on it. It’s all just props for RP purposes but that’s the point. This was like a scanner that already exists in Second Life but it was too “Next Generation Star Trek”-looking. So I rebuilt my own that is similar to it and put original series Star Trek-style graphics, switches, and lights on it.

How about a fantasy scene I built for my rezzable holodeck? I bought a lot of this stuff but I do make a few of my own props. I the foreground is a “strategy table” I made. The mug is not my own however, is from another source. And I used a Skyrim map since I don’t have a substitute right now and I didn’t care to use a map of Gor like so many in Second Life do. (I never even heard of Gor/Gorean until I joined and don’t care about it because you can’t use any races other than human and to me that defeats the point of fantasy). I have made my own gold coins also with Skyrim Septim textures. I hope to make my own textures for gold coins also so I am not using a licensed property. But it also fun to build small fantasy scenes I can put into my holodeck rezzer and use at will.

 

This is the outside of an Elven Brewpub I made in the same scene. The gold brew tank in the middle is one I made. I did not make the larger one on the left or the large barrel on the right. But altogether it looks like this place brews some serious house brew. For RP purposes that’s the idea.

If you misbehave here you get the pillory and the jail. I also added posted “Dark Brotherhood” related imagery from Skyrim just for kicks.

 

The posting on the left is of course the note the Dark Brotherhood sends you in Skyrim for the “Innocence Lost” quest. On the right is a “response” note I made because I always kill Astrid then go wipe out the rest of the Dark Brotherhood in Skyrim.

My answer to the Dark Brotherhood every time! Death!

Wardrobe Malfunction Detected! Looking up this skirt from a low angle we don’t see panties. Nyrva stands, legs spread, letting her “unmentionables” show.

ROLEPLAY SCENES AND POSSIBILITIES IN SECOND LIFE

Here we have a another rezzable roleplay setting I built for my holodeck which is supposed to be Nyrva’s family’s house (the house she was born and raised in, and the heiress thereof by her late parents) on her Elven homeworld in Second Life. She sits at her desk writing a letter on a scroll of parchment with a feather pen and ink.

Here’s another shot of Nyrva sitting at her desk writing a letter at home.

Sometimes I don’t always know how to caption the screenshots based on the animations from the characters and the props. I guess Nyrva is glancing over her document here and proofreading? who knows. After all they don’t have spell-checkers. lol!

Nyrva is deep in thought of what to say next in her letter? Or is it how to spell a word?

 

A view of Nyrva writing from the front angle, also showing her background with all her books, her scrolls and ink in the foreground and a pouch of her money on the desk.

 

A shot under Nyrva’s desk for a gratuitous shot here. I do this just for fun, she’s a frigging video game sprite at the end of the day.

Nyrva out in her yard after dark. Don’t ask me the light source. She stands amidst a campfire setup she has in her yard and also near a fountain with a gargoyle statue and a small house that serves as her kitchen and dining hall. In the background is her family’s brew tanks, since elves brew their own. Roleplay possibilities are endless in a simulation world like Second Life.

Nyrva working at the local Elven brewhaus as a bar wench, dress and all. She holds a beer stein I made myself, full mesh. Also coins on the counter I made and put in the scene. I used textures from Skyrim for the coins until I make my own original coin textures.

I also did this shot of Nyrva holding a bottle of one of my favorite German beers. I love Hoffbrau, Spaten, Hacker-Pschorr- good stuff! I made a mesh bottle I can slap a few different beer labels on and in this case, Hoffbrau Oktoberfest.

 

And we have Nyrva outside in her bar wench dress, checking the brew tanks of the Elven Brewhaus- the beer has to keep flowing for the customers, you know!

 

Too exhausted to travel back home that night after a long day at work, Nyrva takes one of the beds in the Elven Brewhaus since no customers booked that room for the evening.

It’s too hot outside, and no air conditioning, so Nyrva takes it all off and sleeps in the nude in the Elven Brewhaus.

 

Still too hot to sleep, Nyrva sits up for awhile in the bed of the brewhaus.

A photo I snuck on a mature sim – Nyrva sitting nude on a toilet in a women’s bathroom on Second Life. I guess we now know what it looks like for a naked elf woman to sit on a toilet. lol!

If nude on the toilet isn’t enough, how about going to a so-called “Fantasy Faire” – barely anyone else was there, so I stripped Nyrva and got a few pictures.

Here’s another shot of the nude Nyrva at the so-called Fantasy Faire.

One more nude shot of Nyrva in this setting before we move on…

How about Insilico? A dead site. Nobody is ever there. One wonders how it stays open, despite looking cool, like it’s inspired by Blade Runner or something. Since nobody was around I took a few shots of Nyrva in the buff. I just think it’s fun to do. (Some people get into full BDSM and sex stuff with their toons, I just mostly take nudie pictures!)

From the same “Fantasy Faire” I shot the nude pictures of Nyrva at. What the hell do you call this shit? Nothing “Fantasy” about this. But I play an Elf in Star Trek so touche’ – but anyone wants to bitch at me about playing an elf in Star Trek sims should bitch at these guys from bringing this shit to a Fantasy sim. Make no mistake, I do like to mix sci-fi and fantasy, but this looks like a modern present day setting that got nuked or war torn or something, it doesn’t necessarily fit either one. Meh, go figure.

Another shot of this city scene. This looks more like a discombobulated Grand Theft Auto or Fallout 4 scene or something. I’m trying to picture how else this fits into either sci-fi or fantasy. Oh, well.

Poor Nyrva, she finds herself hopelessly locked in a cage. Is someone going to rescue her?

Speaking of mixing sci-fi and fantasy, I’ve been trying to get one of these soda machines in Second Life for months. I have seen this machine at Insilico and one other place only and they are otherwise impossible to find. And I can’t get the maker/seller to respond to me to sell me one. I do have a couple of the soda cans. I love the girl used for the picture, the Asian-looking girl as the “space elf” whipping the finger with the can of root beer in her hand. I guess putting my Wood Elf in a Star Trek sim by definition makes her a “space elf” so I am essentially playing one.

Kind of a general nude pose of Nyrva sitting at a friend’s place in a mainland sim area. My friend was building his own sci-fi ship in the background- not related to any branded sci-fi, which I can respect. At least it would be truly his own. (the colors are for establishing mesh faces)

A gratuitous nude shot of Nyrva laying out. She lays naked in an undisclosed location.

Sometimes I just do gratuitous nudes for no reason. Another shot of Nyrva laying nude.

 

I figured to show one more naughty shot from this set before moving on…. Nyrva again, lying nude in an undisclosed location. (I just say undisclosed location- it’s nowhere special, not important, who cares? etc.)

 

Nyrva sitting in ruins at a mainland location I held until recently (that I now have up for sale as of this posting.)

Another angle of Nyrva sitting nude in the ruins, just taking in the fresh air. Wood Elves are people of nature I guess?

 

Nyrva on location at the Darkwood Castle sim. I go here and poke around once in a while. I don’t really play here, I like fantasy but I’m not into BDSM stuff either IRL or in video games.

I have Nyrva here posed with two of my characters from World of Warcraft in Second Life. I figure if I ever quit WoW I can still play with my monk and rogue in SL as characters there.

 

Another shot of Nyrva posed with my monk and rogue from World of Warcraft.

In this shot Nyrva stands nude with the monk and rogue for the shot.

Nyrva stands nude as she continues to pose with my monk and rogue from World of Warcraft… (The pandas have no interest in the elf that way, they are just her friend I guess if you want to ask “that” question! lol! Nyrva is simply a character that is posed nude for pictures, put simply.)

Here we are back at the Fantasy Faire from earlier in the blog, Nyrva isn’t nude this time- wearing her best Wood Elf outfit.

 

I never could decide if I wanted Nyrva to be a mother or not in my fiction. I got her this pregnant belly in Second Life for some shoots of course for conceptual depictions of the idea. But I never decided what I wanted her fate to be in my novel- motherhood, marriage, death- a lot of that is still up in the air. Nevertheless, here she stands in this picture, nude and knocked-up.

This was original character art I did of Nyrva pregnant. Again, I could never decide what I wanted her ultimate fate to be, whether I wanted this for her or not. Since Wood Elves are a dying race in my story, it would be important for someone like Nyrva, especially as a female, to have a child with a male Wood Elf to help preserve the race. But it’s still undecided what I want to do with this character in my fiction I’ve been writing about her over the years. There’s still some back story I need to develop as well which has changed over time as I have developed the character. In any case- here is an original drawing by me of the pregnant, nude, Nyrva.

Nyrva of the tribe of Dragonwood. A female Wood Elf. She was an original character I created in 1997 and I also create original art of her. It has been awhile since I have attempted to update her appearance, I would like to work on doing so to make her a bit less “anime” looking when I get some time. Or at least have a version of her that is non-Anime, along side the “anime” depiction of her. I suppose that’s what I do with Second Life and Skyrim- imagining the character in more realistic and life-like forms with the virtual formats. But Nyrva is my own original character I created for my own fictional writing efforts and I have used her in game play along the way. Here she stands gazing towards the sky. But in this picture I attempted to make a background with stones, fake grass and sticks- I’m not sure it turned out like I wanted. I suck at drawing landscapes and I didn’t want to use someone else’s work- give me credit for being honest about it anyways.

 

 

This is one of my male alts in Second Life dressed in his “special agent/MiB” suit where I have him next to a Polybius machine at a virtual arcade in Second Life. The depiction is to play on a popular urban legend from 1981 in Portland Oregon about this alleged game, not confirmed to actually have existed (but sometimes you wonder.) I decided to have fun with my alt when I saw this machine.

 

MORE TO COME…

It’s been awhile since I posted a blog, and I actually have a lot more stuff to share but I must close this one due to the length already. I may attempt to write shorter blogs more often with more goodies and stuff about my hobbies or whatever I feel like posting, hopefully less bitching about what I don’t like. But I wanted to say something about the new Star Trek because I’m tired of these studios butchering stuff I like.

I will close this blog for now and begin work on the next blog, hopefully post it soon with more pics and stuff to talk about. Until then… God bless!

See ya!

aka “Nyrvachan”
