(Click on image for bigger version.) So my husband Stephen was playing this game Titan Quest with some of his friends and he thought it might be fun to network our computers and play together when we felt like being lazy at home. At first I was disappointed picking the character, my choice was either an oddly thick legged roman woman or large roman man. You couldn't even change their hair colour. Boring!
But then it got better... as you run about fighting zombies and medusas and the like, you pick up shmancy armor (never mind that none of it actually matches... my poor girl looks like she got dressed with a blindfold on) and you get points you can put towards special powers. I put all my points into getting summons... creatures you can magically summon to follow you around and fight with you. So I have a wolf, giggly nymph girl and death king.
I imagine if real life came with magic summons it would be pretty neat. The wolf could keep the cats in line, the death king could take care of watering the plants, cooking, laundry and answer the phone, and me and the nymph could hang out drinking tea and go shopping. Awesome!
