[TES Lore] Lorekhan #3: The Imperial City and the Empire [Part 2]

In the first Lorekhan, we covered the Elder Scrolls themselves; in the second, we covered the Imperial City, White-Gold, and their significance in the history of the Empire, as well as a large portion of the important Imperial history up to the start of the Second Era. This time, we will be covering the Second Era, which is also the era The Elder Scrolls Online takes place during. Continue reading

Dog Returns to Guild Wars 2

I’ve returned to good old Guild Wars 2, and IT’S AMAZING. I heard that menu music again and was like “dayum I ‘member that”. Also, I’ve always wanted to go the Maguuma Wastes due to how cool it looks on the world map. Dream completed.

GW2char

I’d also like to recommend Bog Otter’s Boomerang series. It’s really concise and helpful for knowing what you’ve missed when returning to the game.

FTL Steam Chat Co-Op Preview

Being as I’ve been quiet lately, instead of acting like I’m Activision or something and cryptically telling you I’m “working on some stupid stuff”, Imma actually show you the stupid stuff. I’m not publishing this to reddit or anywhere else, just showing this here to the people that do read my blog and like my journals. This is an extract from the series, and we already have a lot of content in it but we’re going to be doing much more before I publish it. I may abruptly end series, but I’m going to get this one going a long time. Continue reading

Dog’s Summer

Well, my ESO guild is at 130 members, been staying busy with that. I’ve also been having fun with the Steam sales, and the Summer Sale is still on full thrust, so GOTTA GET DEM GAMEZ. Got the Civ 5 collection, and been playing Just Cause 2 and the multiplayer mod for it as well. I also spent time Continue reading

It’s the Anniversary of DHGB!

Thanks WordPress notifications, because I totally would not have known the exact date of that. Dog House Gaming Blog has officially been around three years from today, and in that time it has seen my very inconsistent writing and my writing style that some people apparently enjoy.

Edit: Just by coincidence this is also post 200 on my blog. Thanks again WordPress notifications.

This is all good and fun because I hope for DHGB to be around for a long time, and hope it will cover many games. I would also like to get into properly writing in a somewhat conclusively-timed manner, and finish a series (it would seem that Minecraft Towny is going to be the first finished journal series, of all things.)

The games I currently play now are TF2 (got back into it, hadn’t played it for a long time) and Elder Scrolls Online, running a guild that may have hit a hundred people by now, I don’t know it was pretty close last night.

I’d like to personally thank Dennis Fieldman, Morgan, Dean, Istvan, Anthony Coglianese, jonas (for telling me about the broken link), Foxy, Samantha Lopez, and of course, DuckOnDuck (and I’m sorry other people, Duck has the best name here)

[TES Lore] Lorekhan #2: The Imperial City and the Empire [Part 1]

Welcome again to another punishingly named chapter in our Elder Scrolls lore series. Last week, we talked about the Elder Scrolls themselves. This week, we’ll be looking at the history of the Imperial City and the White-Gold Tower, and its significance throughout the eras.

 

The Imperial City is a circular city which is built on an isle in Lake Rumare, with the White-Gold Tower Continue reading

[TES Lore] Lorekhan #1: The Elder Scrolls

Welcome to my new lore series for Elder Scrolls. I’m going to be taking my abilities at lazily but efficiently explaining mechanics and ideas while throwing in a bunch of really dumb humor, and combining it with my nerdiness about Elder Scrolls and its lore. Also, yes, the actual name of the series is a geeky/nerdy Elder Scrolls lore pun. I’m da baws.

This lore series will hopefully teach you the very insanely rich lore of the Elder Scrolls world in an entertaining manner, and allow you to out-nerd your friends whenever you sit down to play a single player TES game and/or ESO with them.

 

THE ELDER SCROLLS

So the title doesn’t confuse you, seem redundant, and imply that I’m covering all lore in one article, I’m just going to make this clear that this first chapter is actually about the titular Elder Scrolls themselves. Continue reading
