Inside the surprisingly high-stake world of videogame cheat creation.

Once Upon a Time, during a sale, I bought a lifetime CheatHappens membership and it was a tremendously good investment. My hard line is I don’t cheat in competitive and/or online games, which in my case mostly means MMOs. But anything I play solo is definitely (a har) fair game.

Switching jobs for great XP.

So I hit 80 on Dancer about halfway through the Shadowbringers storyline, and not wanting to “waste” the leveling XP, it’s time to put that on hold while I catch up my old main, Summoner.

Been doing it by leveling Scholar and . . . it took me a while to get into the groove of it, but I think I kinda like it?

Also I get to dress like a frumpy librarian, so . . .

Yeah, Cool Fantasy Outfits are cool and all . . . but what if I fought monsters and saved the planet in ripped jeans and a pair of Chucks?1

  1. Also demon goat horns. []

Levelling IDC (Interior Decorator).

My FFXIV FC room! I wanted to do something in-line with the themes of the FC—ivory roses, mandragoras, and purple—and got two out of three. I also wanted to practice making fake windows and a kind of “inside outside” room, and maybe got about halfway there? Definitely learned some Lessons about light clipping and TV placement. There’s still a few plants and things I’d probably want to tweak but . . . good enough for now!

This is also the second build; the first one just . . . wasn’t working out for me the way I wanted, but I took some screenshots to preserve it for posterity:

Oppapartment style!

Well. I did it. I started on my Long Road to the Final Fantasy XIV endgame, i.e. doing fashion shoots in custom housing, by buying and decorating an apartment. So say hello to the proud owner of Kobai Goten Wing 1 Room 20, 12 Ward, Shirogane, on Midgardsomr (it should be open to visit in-game, if that’s your bag baby).

The grind.

So because of Dislocated Assbones1 I can’t sit on chairs for long periods, which has really cramped my gaming style. I’ve spent the last couple of months obsessing with games I could play on my laptop sitting on the couch, so first Cities: Skyline and then Crusader Kings 3, but kind of got to the point where I’d modded the latter out as much as I wanted to and . . . Now what?


  1. Yes, really; my coccyx basically looks like an L. Probably the result of an old injury that’s been recently re-aggravated. []
