Despite not getting lots of rest or having much leisure time over the “long” weekend, I did manage to squeeze in a little bit of gaming, maybe an hour or three. That time was spent in Vanguard; Saga of Heroes. I started two new characters and played a little on my long-neglected main.
Vanguard does not feel like a dead game, even though the population is low. I saw people other playing both on the Isle of Dawn and in one of the traditional starter areas. At higher levels, there were players in Trengal Keep and the Wardship of the Sleeping Moon. I joined a guild, Twighlyte Song, which had 30 people on at 2 PM, spread all across the level range, had a robust chat happening, and was putting together multiple dungeon groups.
Ardwulf did some exploring, and ventured into the exterior areas of Falgarholm for the first time. I started a new character, a Kurashasa Blood Mage, in his native starting area, which is really weird – it’s an area I never finished before, and it’s cool to see. Another new character, an Orc Dread Knight, started on the Isle of Dawn, which I have also never finished; I mean to do both this time.
Oh, and you might check out Massively’s One Shot for the day, starring Yours Truly. I finally got my login issue there sorted out, too.
