POLL: What consoles or platforms do you use for gaming?

Now that we've sorted out who has the best profile page, its time to crack on with main poll for this week, and the question is a very simple one: Which consoles or platforms do you use?

The Nords of Skyrim

This is to be my first addition to The Skyrim Blog. Not much to say about this. I guess I'll start that this was just an on-the-fly test run, and I decided to make my first post a poem about the hardy Nords. I hope all that read this enjoy.

Hardy north-men of snowy peaks,…

Glimpses - The Arena

Glimpses - The Arena

By: Shimazu

'A fall from grace cannot be measured. What would you measure? How much money you had? How happy you were? How much respect you commanded? Maybe just how healthy you was? Well, if it can be measured, I am not the one to do so. I am not the one to judge anything, I am the judged.'


A man sat on one of the wooden…

Marudil: Blood And Arrows Ch. 3

The sunrise that morning seemed devoid of its distinctively joyous Valenwood flair. The green of the trees was dull and lifeless, and the air seemed stiff and dry. It was not at all as Marudil had remembered it to be; he found that…

The travels of Yuri Woodcutter part 19

Signing up to fight for the empire is all well and good, but having had a night to sleep on it there are a couple of things in Windhelm that Lydia and I should take care of before we mark our cards and find we're no longer welcome amongst the Nord fundamentalists. There are two possible ways to get to the windy city: follow the river out of the mountains and into the north; or go back to Whiterun and secure the services of a horse drawn carriage.

Both of course require we leave… Continue

The Seventh Path: Temple of Steel (Ch.10 Pt.3)

Silver followed Cassandra through the darkness of the Temple of Steel, nervously glancing in every direction to make sure there was no threat coming their way. The silence made him feel anxious: all he could hear were their steps; the same dull, repetitive sound over and over again. From time to time, he could briefly hear Miraak’s voice in the distance, but even that became monotonous. The area…

Ingoknin Chapter 14 – Crossroads

(We all follow the same roads; we just take different paths)


Aranni woke up with a dry mouth and a pounding head.  What in Oblivion happened last night?  He rolled over and noticed his linen cloth on the bed post, what the…  Realizing he was naked he shot up looking to see if he was alone! Thanks be to Y'ffre he was. But oh he should not have done that his head pounded ferociously.  “Oh Gods” he presses his hand to his head trying to remember what happened but he can’t it…
