waypoint

An entire day on the Makalu Basecamp trail spent in shadow of this peak, Mahali, a six-thousander in the Makalu-Barun region. The mountain keeps grunting and groaning through the day, as ice blocks melt and reshape.

BROKEN WAYPOINT. WELL THIS CAN’T BE GOOD.

Found this in Brisban Wildlands when I went to visit my Priory colleagues at the encampment near Toxal Bog.

The waypoint lies in pieces and the vine that was encircling it is gone.

Vaguely reminds me of the design on Mursaat Tokens, but not quite the same.

OPERATION REPOPULATE HALO 3 DAY


I saw this while of the 343 forums today. In honor of one last 7 on the 7th. So I’ll just passing it along to you wonderful people on Tumblr. 

OPERATION: REPOPULATE THE HALO 3 SERVERS


The date is going to be April 7th. It gives us time to prepare but it’s still not too far in the future.

This is not a Halo Waypoint specific event. Read the whole post for details.

WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP

~Send messages to all the big commentators on YouTube, asking them if they can do a little shout out about the Halo 3 play date at the end of their next video. The more people that message, the more chance that they will actually do it. In the end, they are gamers too, so I’m sure they will be glad to help.

~Alert the people who play Halo that may not be on Halo Waypoint’s forums. Not everyone uses Halo Waypoint, and we will be missing a large chunk of potentials players by not telling your friends/colleagues/anyone you know that played Halo 3. If they say that they don’t have it anymore, let them know that it is only $5 if you buy it used, and can most likely be found in the giant bargain bin in the local Gamestop. Hell, you could even buy it for a few people since it’s so damn cheap now.

~Alert any other forums that you think may be interested in this idea.

~Like the [1] Facebook page so we obtain more exposure.

~REPLY TO THIS TOPIC! Keep it alive and let people see it!

~This is a chance to relive the days of old Halo 3. Back when everyone was playing, and it was a giant cluster of friends and sociality. (I think that’s a word)

~So do whatever you feel inclined to do, and then do a little bit more after that. Let’s get this happening!

Remember, the date is April 7th.

“Lord of Admirals, we are in position over the Forerunner planet.”

“Show me.”

“Population numbering over two billion. Forerunner ships on-alert and inbound!”

“Is it possible? Have we gotten ahead of it?

“Flood infestation detected, my Lord!”

“Damn it!”

“My Lord, the infestation is in a remote locale - perhaps, if we warned the Forerunners?”

“If we warn them, we give the Flood time to spread. You know we have no choice… Cleanse the planet.”

Curiosity Update:

Curiosity is currently examining a potential drilling operation on Mars known as “The Kimberly Waypoint.”

Named after a remote region of Australia, this major stopping waypoint has been planned since early 2013 for closer study of the Red Planet’s rocks. New imagery from the region will be examined as scientists determine potential drilling missions. 

Kimberly is an important area because it lies at the intersection of four different types of rocks. The area originally piqued scientists’ interests after being examined by the telescopic cameras aboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

One of the changes with the latest WoW patch was the removal of Justice Points. Now all of the old Northrend tier sets are purchasable with gold, so I’ve been taking my various alts to see what’s what.

Well it turns out Alliance Paladins have a set called Turalyon’s Battlegear. It’s a really good looking set, and, let’s be real, I’m a huge Turalyon fangirl. 

The belt and boots are not part of the set - I was lucky enough to get the matching belt to drop out of my first run at Trial of the Crusader (10 Normal). The boots I’m wearing are from a Jade Forest quest.

The set:
