The big sleep

Here we see The Awesome One, "Sturnim the Brave" asleep on the job again.
Massive Snake-oid boss monster, dealing out some serious punishment, just around the corner, and this is the all the help we get ;)

We were too late!

Sturnim The Awesome One (tm) has solo'ed his last solo, we were too late to save him.
We took one last group photo to honour his memory, may his journey to Vahalla be swift.

Lying around on the job

Here in Team Crypt Creeps, we train hard, we are a well oiled machine, we are ready to step up to the plate to take on any challenge, we laugh in the face of death... hang on, that's some other squad. Death apparently laughs at us. We apparently can't remember to pack the right soul gems to Rez a fallen comrade. Here's Craig, lying here dead - whilst we rummage through our collective backpacks to see if we've got any first aid. Let me see, banana, tomato, coffee, rose petals, seaweed, salt, ginkgo etc.  Wait, wait, yep I've got one - a filled soul gem level 20 upwards - should we use it on Craig, I've only got the one?

I wonder if it will be friends with me?

History never repeats.
Craig has, over the years, developed this special "skill" of being able to get offside with the locals.
It all started back in NeverWinter Nights 2002, whilst visiting a large town, in a rather tough part of the world. We were novice adventurers, ill-prepared, and desperately needed to rest up, restock before heading back into the wilds. In the middle of the town square, was a large benevolent gold dragon. Let's just say they don't take kindly to having their pockets picked, nor did the townspeople react favorably to having their guardian being angered. We had to flee that town - never to return.
(I think we may have all later died of starvation, due to poor equipment and provisions - my memory is a little fuzzy)

I don't known what Craig has done here (pictured above), but the villagers all seem to want a piece of him.

(I wish I had taken a picture of that Gold Dragon - whilst he was still friendly.)

With all this technology we can't get lost...

Map reading is a dying art, as is knowing the points of a compass.

Here's me reading the map, I love maps, I love working out where to go, and how to get there.
There may be impassable obstacles, dangerous encounters, or loot laden locations, or shops to cash in the loot you already have, so you need to plot a considered course... "Where did everyone go?"

Falling is the second leading cause of accidental death

Elder Scrolls Online

What if someone said to you, "Jump, and you'll receive a boon" - would you?
What if that same someone jumps, and says "See it's easy" - would you follow?
What if your name was "Sturnim the Brave" - surely you must, right?

What if you miss the water...

The Secret World

No traffic here, no police required, but you may need a shotgun to deal with the zombies trying to get your autograph.

I suppose this makes me Lennon, Craig Ringo, Gary McCartney, and Dave is Harrison.

Jumping Grasshoppers

Jumping Grasshoppers

Craig truly is the master of climbing.
Here's me, looking up, and saying something like "How'd you get up there?", and Craig saying something like "It's easy, I'll show you".  Always wanting to help is our Craig.  But without fail the student will always disappoint the master. If this was Kung Fu, that old TV series from the 70's,
"When you can take the pebble from my hand, it will be time for you to leave." Grasshopper would be an old man by now.
