I recently found out someone I met through gaming is A-spec! That got me thinking though, that your Discord would be a great place for fellow A-spec gamers to meet. Any chance of getting a channel for that?
We currently have very few gamer aces on our Discord channel. As a gamer myself, I know that all too well. But as more and more people join, we could indeed gather up a nice collection of people to go on some Litch King raids, or do competitive Overwatch, or work on a 50 kilometer city model in Minecraft!
So, my mother has been collecting Dave McKean art/books/prints/comics for more than a few years now, but she’s recently made a posting and wants me to share it with you folks. It’s a pretty nice collection of rare and/or signed art books, prints, etc, if you’re interested.
im serious about that “stop saving things for special occasions” bit tho like. even if u aren’t in your 20s. thats for everyone. its one of the most useful things ive learned lately
stop! just stop. eat the special snack. drink the expensive hippie tea. use the incense or the bath bomb or whatever you paid way too much for because you were feeling really bad and retail therapy makes u feel alive
when we save things for special occasions/rainy days it contributes to us feeling like A.) our day to day existence is lackluster and B.) you have to be feeling a certain level of Bad, or have to reach a certain level of Socially Accepted Achievement, to enjoy things
just give yourself stuff. there are definitely sometimes reasons to withhold things from yourself - as motivation, if it’s something you consciously want to use sparingly, etc - but at least for me half the time it just turns into self-flagellation and also cool things and cool experiences and nice treats just collect dust while i wait for some fabled day when i convince myself i finally Deserve it
just fuckin give yourself stuff dude. life’s so mindblowingly short
i’d just like to point out that in the art book from the ‘03 bluray collector’s edition, Hughes’ page has a little tear-stained(?) note in the corner which reads: “I’m sorry, I never meant for any of this to happen”
what are you hopes for da4? where do you think it'll be set?
i don’t follow fandom theories and meta too closely so this is really just my superficial take on things. i also try not to think of anything as “predictions”, because who knows, really.
that being said im ALMOST sure it’ll be at least partly set in tevinter, because it really seems to be gearing towards that for a number of reasons
qunari war starting up again
dorian & co wanting to change how things are over there
the final moments of trespasser were really pointing to that too
tevinter is heavily tied with elven history which seems to be particularly in focus in the story rn
with all that i think it’d look ridiculous if we weren’t in tevinter at all, but i say “almost” sure because again, who knows.
as for my hopes, well,
it would be nice to hear from the grey warden situation, and if we do go to the north it would put us closer to the anderfels so it’s not entirely unrealistic, or so i’d like to believe.
i would like whoever the human option for player character to not be a noble. i dont think that would be of much interest if we’re going to be put in the middle of a possible slave uprising in tevinter. a return of a city elf option would be great too, for the same reason.
if it is tevinter, a city setting more like da2 had would be cool, and less of endless expanses of land with nothing but fetch quests. it looked pretty, sure, but it’s not what i play dragon age for.
dwarves. literally anything about them in any positive or relevant way. that would be nice.
a comeback of the mood icons in the dialogue wheel but this time it actually shows up more than 3 times in the whole game and actually matters, something like the special red/purple/blue options you had in da2 when your hawke is predominantly a certain color would be cool.
same thing for the race/class specific dialogue options. let the character’s background be relevant.
on that note, something like the origins quest would be nice, getting a glimpse of what the character’s life was like before they’re thrown into the main story.
bringing back approval/friendship slider. i want a visual representation of how much that character loves me.
letting us rename saves again. my crops are dying.
@ everyone feel free to reblog & comment on or add to this if you feel like it, i’d be interested in seeing what other people are thinking
