So, it’s finally here. THE pre-patch. There’s a meeting tonight to figure out our raiding plans. I know that is foremost on many of my guildies’ minds. So, what is the top thought in my mind right now? Logging on to all of my characters to fill out as much of the toybox as I can. Yeah … I think perhaps my raiding has come to an end.
I downloaded Age of Conan this weekend because that’s what Lyss has been playing lately. I made a Cimmerian Conqueror because, duh … I always make something that can use heavy armor and big weapons. Lyss has asked repeatedly whether we will get an actual Conan post, and I did take screenshots but … I can’t find them. So, maybe later.
So then, how about some M&B? ;)
How’s that for action? All five factions in a line, each guy (other than poor Ordin-Naschokin of the Tsardom there in the lead) chasing another. Let’s see if I can identify the others … the Pole is clearly Jan III Sobieski. The Cossack is Popovich. I can’t see enough of the flag to identify the Swede. The Crimean is Yashlav-bey.
You know, it’s always going to be strange to me, playing another faction and having my beloved Cossacks as enemies. All those times I fought by their sides and then to turn around and have one of them chasing me down is just odd.
Yep, that’s Ivan Sirko tailing me. I’ve posted him before but I failed to wiki him at that time. This must be corrected because he’s important. He was Kosh Otaman of the Zaporozhian Host, the highest military ranking. This was in 1663 after the Khmelnytsky Uprising, though. Sirko, unlike most of his contemporaries, lived to be 70, and was around until 1680, so a lot of his important history is during the wars that resulted from the uprising.
As long as we’re on the Cossack subject again, we might as well get Lavrin Sinonos posted.
He only exists in the game. I like this shot because it also includes Popovich, Shumeiko, and Nosach.
Remember how I mentioned having Mirza Divey in my prison in Kezlev Fortress in my main game?
He’s still there. Maybe someday I should let him out, eh?
