Moving to Avalon House

Thursday, December 11, 2014 0 comments

I have lived in WA my entire life, with the brief exception of a few years elsewhere.  I'm 41 and I want a change.  I'm a college student, a gamer, a mom and a full time aunt however I have lived like a lost sock.  I've just kinda been moved around from place to here to there, never quite finding my place.  I'm feeling restless, like I need to DO SOMETHING.  This feeling has been hounding me for the last few years.  My only child is grown and those around me are gearing up, starting their lives with new children and I am starting on being single and free.

And then my friend says, "Im buying a house, you should move in with me."  That sounded amazing!!!  There is just one snag, I am in WA and he is in VA....

Get an idea.  Check.

That's a long drive.  I'm currently selling off as much as I can to pay for the trip but I don't think I can do it alone.  I have three months.  I don't want to move in the summer, too expensive and too hot for me to adjust to the VA weather.  I also don't want to drive alone, so my trusty best friend will fly in from NY to drive the 60 hours with me and be my wing man.  

Don't go alone.  Check.

I'm willing to eat out of a cooler and drive straight through but that will cost approvimately $2000 in gas.  I will be pulling a trailer full of things, I have furniture from my mother that I am just not willing to give up.  That will reduce the gas efficiency of my already sketchy Jeep Grand Cherokee.  Trailer rental will be $450.  The rest of the cost will be in food, incidentals, a little padding for the gas, $25 to see the grand canyon (I'm going right past it!) and enough to buy new basics when I get there.  

Have a plan.  Check.

So I could use some help.  I will document and post pics along the way.  I will be stopping and visiting people along the way, gamers I've known for years and not met.  You will get to know me, Roman and my errent daughter Scarlett and well as my precious cat companion Squeak.

Ask for help.  Check.
Dear diary!

Am I the only one who does this random action?

When i'm in town I usually look through all stalls, and when I see a stall full of sox and random crap, I understand that the guy is new and dont know that the sox is worth 0, I always buy a few items to get him some gold to get started on the server, same for consignment, always buy elixirs that I dont need to feed ppl some gold so they dont quit due to povery, and put in tons of stones into consignment just so ppl can find what they need? I think its a easy geasture thats healthy for the community and more should do it, if you see a newb, help him out, even if you know you'll npc the shit you jsut bought from him

So friday was a active day on the server I heard, I was out all day due to good weather, meaning my guide in previous post failed.

There was 3 parties at naiad ksing eachother, I really enjoyed it, more fun not knowing if you'll get the kill or not

In the evening we decided to level our lowlvls that we recruited from another private server(not naming it but you all know wich one I mean:) )

and we got some thieves coming in invis/stealth zerking us over nad over for a good hour, was fun to combine grinding with pvp, they even whiped us twice meaning it wasnt 100% secure, making the cave fun

When I heard they where adding the job cave, this is what I imagined, thieves and hunters going back and forth slaughtering eachother, and it will get even better with the uniques!

I just must add. This guy "Devils" keeps running around asking me when im going to return his garment egy set that I scammed from him. Reason he started saying this is because I was killing Monsters over and over for stealing a 2hand when he was in Infensus union, calling him a scammer, about 5min later I got the hole SaintSinner cough I mean SainktSinner guild standing around me telling me to return a garmetn set xD

I guess it's a great tactic, if someone accuses you of something, accuse that person of the same thing!

As for some server news. I've seen less and less shadow, but instead i've seen another guild called DarkDivision wich is made out of ex-infensus, a new thiefguild wich is doing really great. They got a good 20* Zenobia told me in the ravine today with 4 people. Guess they should be counted as a threat since they can kill and steal, I hope they'll keep growing, they got a good core, wich is the recipe to a good start for a guild. 
Also I'd like to say WB to Vaya, him and naira are like the good and the bad,they are both wizards, running around in the jobcave all day zerking/offering ppl one is a hunter, one is a thief, both loves jobbing.

I love to see this, and also i've been monitoring activity on server. I like the boast its gotten from Legend 4 first patch, lets hope it keeps going this direction. Only concern is that homesite is going up and down, making less peopl ebe able to find us, download us, join our community. So lets hope it stabilizes asap.

Over and out. 


I just emailed Congress to urge them to oppose the Internet Blacklist Legislation, known as the PROTECT-IP Act in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House. This legislation seeks to give the executive branch power to conduct slash-and-burn campaigns against websites that allegedly host – or even link to – content that infringes on intellectual property rights. That would “disappear” whole domain names, fundamentally undermining Internet security, and/or choke off their financial support. The Internet Blacklist Legislation puts more sites than ever at risk, effectively upending the DMCA safe harbors that have been crucial to the growth of Internet innovation and creativity.
Sadly, these short-sighted and dangerous bills won’t do much to stop online infringement – but they will jeopardize our ability to speak and read online with the kind of freedom we cherish in the offline world. Deep-pocketed Hollywood lobbyists are aggressively pushing to control and censor the open Internet, willing to sacrifice free speech and our Internet culture in hopes of controlling how people view their movies and products.
We need to stop this bill before it goes any further. Will you contact your representatives in Congress and urge them to oppose the Internet Blacklist Legislation? Visit:

Introducing....  Silkroad Salvation!

Cap: 70
Skills: 110 (Redesigned to fit 70 cap)
Solo Exp Rate: 4x
Party ExP Rate: 2x
SP Rate: 5x
Gold Rate: 0.5x
Item Rate: 4x
Trade Goods Rate: Some routes are 2x iSro, some are up to 7x iSro
Item Mall: Provides cosmetic and luxury items that will not effect PvP

About a level 70 cap:

High level caps create a huge gap in the community between the start of the game and lowest sustainable party level. A 70 cap server would put the lowest sustainable party level somewhere around crabs, which is something people wont mind soloing to on a 4x solo exp bonus rate. After crabs, parties should be plentiful on a 70 cap legit server. A cap of 80 puts the party level at sungsungs, 90 puts it at the ice, and 100 kills low level parties altogether leaving only power-leveling as a viable way to level up. We want to avoid repeating the mistakes of iSro and that begins with a 70 cap that will not ever go up.

What about higher level content?

Since the files are unlikely to ever be released again, the 110 content we currently have is the only content any vsro based pserver will ever be able to provide. Which means with some reworking, we can tailor fit that content to a 70 cap and offer a vast endgame of repeatable fun content without having to ever raise the cap!

What is unique about Silkroad Salvation?

Silkroad Salvation aims at taking Silkroad to the next level. We want to eliminate the grind treadmill and turn silkroad into a viable game for both casuals and hardcore players. Our main focus is PvP content. We did this by moving Battle Arena onto a 2 hour timetable replacing the lame campfest of CTF. PvP players will not need to grind a second past 70. All there gear will be available via battle arena along with the tablets and elixers needed to pimp the gear out.

PvE players are not left out. We are adding mini-uniques all around the gameworld with drops worth fighting for. PvE instances such as Roc and Pharaohs Tomb will drop gear equivalent to the PvP gear. No matter your playstyle, you will be able to enjoy the game and be competitive.

Download the client. Upzip it and launch using silkroad.exe

Over the years I have collected a LOT of images for Silkroad. So I figured Id start releasing them to people that might want them for websites, sigs, whatever. Ill be adding them a few at a time, every few days. When I say I have a LOT, I mean hundreds. lol  So enjoy yourselves and watch for more posts on the imagedump site. 

Hey guys, long time no write.  I should really do this more often, right?  So here is a couple things to take note of.  There was a recent leak of silkroad server files and Avalon has snapped them up.  We are currently in Alpha testing while Fly reconfigures them to better suit legit gameplay.  The stats so far?

70 Cap
All areas accessible for use

I also have a screenshot posted on my google +.  If you are on there and want to add me, feel free!  To get more information about the server, go to where we have a temporary forum set up to answer questions.

I suck at posting.

Yeah I can admit it.  I just work now.  XBox tech support has eaten up my life!  The Kinect launch was crazy, I worked like 65 hours a week.  The overtime was kickass tho.

I wish I could give detailed stories about being an Xbox tech support agent.  The job is mostly cool, chill ppl who game.  But there is this dark part, that small percentage of women who are the unfortunate mothers of 13 year old boys who have access to credit card information.  They make my blood run cold.  Yes, I have heard perfectly sane women say things like, "Xbox is stealing my CC information, not my darling child who would never, EVER do that without my permission."  Yes lady, an xbox agent broke into your home and stole your CC information to character assassinate your dear boy.  Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight....

It seems an old image of mine has resurfaced again.  The thread is in SRF somewhere, but here is the original image.  LINK  I made that for my BFF and it just keeps popping back up in the strangest places.  lol

I also got a chance to beta test a game called Rift.  It was OK I guess.  They call it some revolutionary game design but I didnt really see it.  The PVP was less than satisfying and really, that is always the most fun part of any game.  I thought the skills were pretty sluggish feeling and they had a universal cooldown which is always a bummer.  I hate waiting for skills to recharge.

Still waiting for TERA and GW2 to come out so I can test drive them, I have high hopes!  Forsaken World kinda sucked and Rift says it is going P2P.  Really, in order for that to work, it would have to significantly change.

Other than that, there isnt much going on.  Work and more work.  ^^

If you are interested in working an awesome job from the comfort of your home, rescuing troubled gamers, just leave me a comment and Ill give you all the information you might need to get started.  I searched for a long time for this job and Id be happy to share it with other gamers.
