Brutal Bear's Becomes the Dragonborn


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, this is my first challenge with the Warriors and I am both really excited and nervous. I tend to get a "little" geeky with my challenge designs FYI, but tends to be the only way I can have fun with them. Please share your thoughts and comments! I wish everyone a great challenge!

 

Also, I am super stoked for ESO on PS4

I'll be changing guilds for the next challenge, too. Most likely I'll be going for the Druids this time.

 

Oh and I'll say something about your goals, when I've unpacked/opened them. ^^

 

edit: Why no EXP for side quests? I like your rating system for this challenge. Looking forward to watching this progress bars filling up.

There's a lot of awesome nerdiness happening here. XP progress bars, skyrim, and nested spoilers! Welcome!

 

Have you been working on your novel for a while? Is it your first? I've always liked the idea, but have never sat down to try. I do technical writing for a living and by the end of the day just kind of want to get away from the computer screen for a while.

The iron never lies.

Thanks for stopping by! It is my first novel, and it has been a lot harder than I had imagined. I'm thinking at writing it up to be more of a novella, to make it a little easier. I think it is worth it if you want to write. Half the challenge for me is forcing myself to write everyday..

Does anyone know if there is a warriors announcement page-that keeps us up to date with mini challenges and the such? They had one when I was with the assassins, but I can't find one here. I would like to try and plug into the warrior community and become a part of. I always felt so lost in the assassins, but I want that to change with the warriors.

I think it usually becomes a new stickie within the current challenge, rather than an ongoing thread to which you could subscribe. But I could be wrong.

I've noticed each guild seems to organize and do things differently. The Assassins seemed to be extra organized in terms of lists/phone book etc. And yet I also always felt a little lost there, even though they work to be very inclusive. Not being very assassiny might have been part of it for me. :)

Yes. We tend to not do as many mini challenges. It can mess up your programming. The mead hall stocky is the general chatter thread.

I think some folks mentioned, but we do post up a new sticky for mini challenges.  But make sure you pop into the Training Yard, the Mead Hall, and the food thread (and share your noms!) for lots of warrior silliness.  

 

Thanks you! I tend to go a little overboard on the nerd part of nerd fitness.

 

If ever there were a place where it's okay to get extra nerdy, I think this is it!

Great goals.  Lifting and walking are my favorites!

Total stupid question, but what is a 'new sticky'?

 

The only stupid question is the one unasked, right?  

 

If you go to the main Warrior forum (or any guild's forum, really) you'll see some stuff at the top that says PINNED next to it - that's what you're looking for.
