It’s been more than two years since Star Wars: The Old Republic occupied far too many sleepless nights in my my pursuit to be a Jedi Master. Since then, I have deftly avoided the MMORPG trap, and I’ve led a more productive life because of it. Until this week.
This week, I began playing The Elder Scrolls Online. Barely though the opening sequence, I already can tell I’m in trouble. Tamriel, some 1000 years before Skyrim, is a huge place, and I already have quests piling up.
Therefore, this weekend I will devoting myself to the pursuit of experience. My lowly level four will be in double digits by the end of Saturday, my crafting skills will be well on their way to mastery, and I will likely belong to at least one guild (somebody’s gotta have your back, Jack!). And by Monday, when I get back to work, I will be tired, surly, smelly, and much, much more powerful.
