ABC4: Picture of the day

I found an old box full of pictures and thought I could share one.

This was the first time I fought in the Rift, where the great Balrog Thaurlach was enchained. I was late to the party, because it was already in the days of Moria, or was it even Mirkwood? Butterfly-winged staves were still in fashion. Either way, I was excited to see the raid that everyone had been going on for so long. Of course it wasn't really a challenge anymore (we were 10 levels too high), but I very much enjoyed it. I liked how we were almost crushed by the Eldgang, who only found out at the end that we were not 'evil'. My reputation with them is still among the lowest of many peoples, simply because I wasn't in there at the start, when everyone was sucking up to them. I spent 'too much time playing with the Halflings', they say. In reality, I was taking my time to explore the whole of Eriador, where I had not been before. I met many friends during my travels, of which more perhaps another time.

I also remember how I thought my burgundy-with-yellow dress matched perfect with the Balrog - some things never change.

In June, 'the other Ravanel' takes over Ravalation to ponder about her life as an avatar in the light of the Avatar Blogger Challenge (ABC).


  1. I remember that great dress from festival! Summer festival I think... mine was in Red, very fancy. :)

    As you know, doing a Rescue in Nurz Ghashu is something the Eldgang respects and is something that will earn reputation with them. Like you, I travelled the slow elven road, which got there eventually and was richer and wiser for it. If you are going to skirmish, the Rescue is a good one to do.

    1. Thanks for the tip. I actually did Rescue on a daily base for a while to get skirmish marks and the rep. I might do it again on my captain - she needs two more levels.

      And I love the dress so much as well! Should wear it again sometimes soon. :)
