Undetermined Hiatus

Good afternoon fellow Rifters!

The summer is approaching, I have a child going to college in the fall, we may be moving back to Canada shortly (though this is still in discussion), and I have a ton of writing to catch up on. I haven’t had much time to update the blog, because with the time I do have, I rather enjoy my game.

This being said, the site will be updated sporadically for the next few months. So, it’s not quite a complete hiatus. Hope you understand! 🙂




[Happy Thoughts, Happy Thoughts]

For those of you who hadn’t noticed, I was extremely excited about the Shiny Stories contest in the Rift forums. I worked really hard over several weeks, fine-tuning my rough draft, double-checking spelling and artifact names, and on the second to last day, I was finally satisfied. Here is my entry:

Back From A Short Hiatus

I’d meant to notify everyone that I would be in Ireland from the 3rd to the 10th, then it slipped my mind, what with Carnival grinding and such. I have returned from my week-long trip (which was great!!), and will distribute codes to the winners through the forums sometime this evening.

I’d like to say, that since I have a few extra, I have decided to give the six participants a code each—no one overlooked this time ’round. Congrats and thanks to everyone who participated! 😀


NPCs Please!

As you can imagine, I have been busy working on my real-life writing lately, and sort of focusing on a dimension project when I have free time. The writing workshop I attend has published its newest anthology, so I needed to sort all that out before I could think of writing here.

Plus, that great competition launched by Brasse and Seshatar has kept me busy too… It’s so fun! I think, even once the competition is over, I will be writing more of those, that’s how fun they are.

However, another thing that I’ve been pondering these last few weeks, is how much I wish we had more “people” NPCs to work with in dimensions.

Calling All Pianos Giveaway—Recipients

In light of there being only two participants, both have won a lovely 5th Anniversary Racing Snail. Google’s Random Number Generator was foiled again. 😉 Congrats to Atys and Oochee—honestly, thanks for participating!

Since I really do still want to honor these creations, stay tuned for another musical instrument-themed dimension giveaway in a couple of days. So… Start your dimension touring engines!

(Incidentally, my hope with these giveaways is to get people out and touring old, beloved dims, those that are no longer on the weekly list, those that have somewhat been forgotten… Feel free to suggest your own pianos and organs to friends looking to score themselves a mount. Or maybe swap one of your own creations with that of a friend, and both participate.)



Calling All Pianos Giveaway

You’ve probably seen my entry Ode to a Quirky Piano, and by now I’m pretty sure (and hopeful) that the dimension community has seen Arwhen’s spectacular take on a Baby Grand.

Aphrodite’s Fountain by Arwhen@Brisesol, EU

It got me to thinking about how I could see a whole bunch of dimensional pianos, and how I could involve everyone in this musical bliss at the same time. And presto! The answer came recently with the arrival of a whole new set of 5th Anniversary Racing Snail codes on behalf of the Trion Creator Program. What convenient timing!.

More Faeries

Whilst I’m on the subject of fairies, what with my last post about Mullewappp… I don’t know if all these outfits are inspired by the wardrobe options, or if the current options are catered to players’ preferences, but I sure do see a lot of faery and pirate costumes around Telara.

Other than in Tempest Bay, I don’t manage to take many snapshots, because people are always on the go, but here are a few that caught my eye..
