Things on the XIIIth: January 2019

Welcome to my monthly progress post that happens on the 13th, which marks the start of a new fiscal month here on Livid Lightning. Get it? XIII is my favourite number… because I like Final Fantasy XIII a lot? Jeez… tough crowd.

Hello, 2019. You have no idea how happy I am to see 2018 go away… I’ve sadly read that A LOT of people in this community had a crappy 2018. Here’s to hoping this year is a lot better for everyone!

I had a week and a half off for Christmas. I spent 5 days at my parents house in the middle of nowhere (as evidenced in this photo). It was cool that we got a light dusting of snow on Christmas day.

I also got my Mabari war hound, Max, back. Yay!

I wanted to give Grey Warden Ellen a big hug!! I missed ya, girl.

This DLC story takes place two years after the archdemon has been downed in the main quest, so talking about exactly why I’m hunting the witch is kinda spoilery for the main game… but Morrigan is gone for some reason, and where the hell did she go? Let’s find out more in the clearly marked spoiler area, shall we?
