20 Days of Gold Making: Day 11

Most of us use TSM, Auctioneer and/or Auctionator in combo with Postal - are there any other lesser known gold making addons you use?

I'll start of by saying I'm lazy and have very few addons. I also forget to open up curse client regularly to check for updates meaning more often than not my add-ons are in need of an update and aren't actually working. It normally takes a couple of days of "a newer version of add-on x is available. update now!" before I update. Writing this has prompted me to check and update my add-ons right now!

Anyway, I do use a select few add-ons including Postal and Auctionator. I find that just using the two to aid my gold-making is sufficient. I love Postal and I'm not sure if I could live without it! It's so simple but incredibly useful. When my bofriend first told me about Auctionator I wasn't really sure how useful it would be for me. Initially, I would even forget to use it and would manually check the AH and work out a decent selling price for an item. But once I started using it I found it to be extremely useful. It speeds up the process of both placing auctions and buying items - which means more time to play!

I'm looking forward to other peoples replies as I'm not even aware of any other add-ons to assist with gold-making. I honestly don't even know what TSM is! Assuming that TSM is Trade Skill Master the boyfriend has just explained it to me - sounds useful. I'm hoping to find out about some more and maybe even start using them myself (until they need an update atleast!!)

20 Days of Gold Making: Day 10

I'm now half way through Nev's 20 Days of Gold Making now and todays question is:

Do you farm materials? Why? Why not? & Which ones? Where?

I have farmed certain materials and will no doubt continue to do so. The truth is that I don't like to spend my gold on items that I could get for myself. I'd rather fly around Outlands mining Fel Iron Ore than give someone I don't gold for doing exactly that.

I guess I've farmed most materials atleast once in order to level a profession. To be honest, I've probably farmed quite a lot of materials just for the hell of it.

Mining Ore
Ore is something that I continually farm - every (well 99% of) node I run, walk or fly past I mine. My hunter (main) is a miner/jewelcrafter - both maxed. I don't need to mine the nodes for a skill up or the experience but I still do it. I guess it's the hoarder in me that insists I must virtually collect the ore. My DK is also a miner (with engineering) but she's currently on vacation in Halfhill living the good life farming vegetables - which brings me onto my next sub-section...

Cooking Materials
Cooking is something that I enjoy both in-real-life and in-game. In-game my hunter has max-level cooking - even before I had MoP. I took full advantage of the free 10-day trials available on not one but two occassions. I used this opportunity to max out my cooking and to farm some cooking materials. I started my farm at Halfhill and got growing veg. Now this more traditional-style farming in combination with fishing (something I also enjoy in-game) earned me a fair bit of gold.

Herbs & Leather
I've farmed both herbs and leather atleast once when leveling a subsequent profession (i.e. alchemy and leatherworking). However, I've not farmed them to the extent that I have mined ore or been fishing.
I pick herbs (on my maggie) in the same way that I mine ore on my hunter - if I see it I pick it. This means that I normally have enough herbs to do my alchemy with little or no need to do additional farming.
Skinning is a different matter! My druid, who still needs some loving and to be leveled, is a skinner/leatherworker. I think in part these professions are one of the reason she rarely played. I'm too stubborn to give up on them but I find them such a pain! I never have enough leather to craft items - no matter how many animals I've skinned. Periodic skinning sessions are the only way I seem to get enough grr.

Well I've farmed for various items in various places. I tend to use wow-professions.com as my guide when I'm farming items. However, their guides sometimes miss out certain ores/herbs/etc. and in those cases I use wowhead to find where they exist/grow.

My Boyfriend's Started Blogging...

... so feel free to check out his blog, Enunciating Endeavours and bamboozle him with comments!

20 Days of Gold Making: Day 9

What's your favorite niche market & why?

This is quite a tough question for me so it's only a short answer. As I previously mentioned on Day 6 I sell whatever I have in my bags or excess of in my bank. This means that I haven't expanded into every niche of the gold-making market, meaning I'm not really sure what all the niches are.

My banker hanging out in the Stormwind AH (Dwarven District)
Being a battle pet collector and battler I always check what pets are available on the auction house. I've sold a few pets on the AH but it's safe to say I've bought more than sold. This is in part due to the short time I've actually played the game so I haven't managed to acquire of the world event pets etc. One thing I do enjoy about the battle pet market is that the pets can be found under two sections of the AH interface and I like to compare the prices and find a real bargain. I spoke about this previously and I guess it's a bit weird but it's something I enjoy.

20 Days of Gold Making: Day 8

Yesterday I didn't do a 20 Days of Gold Making post as I was busy working on my Battle Pet Theme Team: Lunar Festival post. But I'm back on track today...

Thinking back to day 2, did you ever reach your goal or are you still working towards it? If you reached it - have you set yourself a new one?
In my Day 2 post I spoke about how I've never had a goal in terms of wanting x amount of money. Instead my goals have been to acquire an in game item for which I've needed a lot of gold to puchase. I gave two mounts as examples - the Sandstone Drake and Mekgineer's Chopper.

As you can see from the screenshot of my achievement window above I did manage to acquire both mounts.
I got the Sandstone Drake on 17/08/12 and I remember it very clearly. My boyfriend was browsing the auction house when he spotted two Vial of Sands for a cheap price. I can't remember the exact price but I think it was around 17k gold. At the time I only had 15k so he gave me the extra to buy it.
I got my own Chopper much later on 24/11/12. This was in part because I sold the first one that I made. The materials to make the Chopper are quite expensive and they always seemed to sell well on my server. So, I decided to try and sell mine with the aim of making 50% profit. The best part being that I did meaning my own chopper was effectively half price. You can't beat a bargain like that!
Since getting these two mounts I haven't really set myself any official goals. My unofficial goal is to have enough money for my hunter to purchase faction mounts/pets as she gets to the approproate reputation standing with them.

As you can see in the screenshot above my I've got a fair bit of gold in my guild vault / spread across my characters - just over 30k. So, getting the faction mounts/pets shouldn't be a problem.

I have therefore decided to set myself a monetary goal! In a few weeks it's my 1-year-of-playing-WoW-iversary and I'm really happy with myself for hitting the 30k mark and for getting the mounts/pets I want thus far.

So, my goal is to have 50k in 6-months time (by mid-end June 2013).

Battle Pet Theme Team: Lunar Festival

For the first official Theme Team post the theme is based on the current in-game world event - Lunar Festival. Lunar Festival is Azeroths tribute to Chinese new year. MoP brought a whole range of oriental-themed items to Azeroth. Amongst them is a number of battle pets - such as dragons and kites. Whilst these may seem like obvious contenders for this theme I've decided to focus more on the lunar/magic aspect. For Chinese new year (10th February) I will post a more oriental themed team.

This is my first year doing the Lunar Festival achievements and as a result I don't have either of the two pets available form the event. There is two versions of the festival pet - a Horde pet, Festival Lantern, and an Alliance pet, Lunar Lantern . Both of these can be purchased for 50 Coin of Ancestry.

Wowhead's guide to Lunar Festival can be found here and WoW Insider's here.

The pet images presented below are taken from warcraftpets.com. The pet names serve as links to the pets respective pages at warcraftpets.com so you can look in greater depthy at their abilities if you wish.


Lunar Festival Pets - Lunar Lantern & Festival Lantern

These two pets (Alliance & Horde respectively) are both part of the magic family and share the same abilities. The abilities available to these pets are largely magical with only two abilities being non-magical.
Enchanting Pets - Magic Lamp & Enchanted Lantern
These two pets (Alliance & Horde respectively) are made by enchanters. They are both from the magic family but have different abilities. The Enchanted Lantern has the exact same abilities as the Lunar Lantern & Festival Lantern.  The Magic Lamp has different abilities with only one being non-magic.

The Enchanted Broom can be purchased for 40 Champion's Seals. Again it is from the magic family of battle pets but it has a range of abilities including non-magic ones. The three non-magic abilities are spread throughout the ability slots meaning it's possible to not use a single magic ability.
The four canine (beast family) models above are the Fjord Worg Pup, Worg Pup, Alpine Foxling / Alpine Foxling Kit / Arctic Fox Kit and Fox Kit respectively. They are from a variety of sources including a dungeon drop, zone drop and capturable. They all shame the same set of abilities - a mixture of beast and critter. I've chosen to incude these beasts as contenders as they not only add a non-magic element but also because they howl at the moon.

Final Three...

The majority of the battle pets that I've chosen are from the magic family and most of them are heavy on magic abilities. This has made finding a balanced three-pet theme team quite hard. So, I've made as balanced a team as was possible.
I chose the Enchanted Lantern for its largely magic abilities, aesthetics and because it's the only lantern of the four included that I own, the Enchanted Broom for it's variety of non-magic abilities and the Fjord Worg Pup for not being magical and it's appearance.
As this is the first Battle Pet Theme Team post I'd really appreciate any feedback!
I toyed with the idea of talking about the individual pet abilities available to each pet and the possibilty of including a table of these abilities. In the end I wasn't sure how useful this would be to the overall blog (particularly as most of the pets in this post share abilities) and didn't include too much detail.
Please comment / email me any feedback / thoughts on how Theme Teams can be improved for the next addition. Thanks!

3 Months of Blogging, Navispam and Introducing Battle Pet Theme Teams!

Today marks my 3 months of blogging aka my blogiversary. I know it's not a particularly big milestone compared with blogs that have been going for years but I'm really happy that I've made it this far!

Firstly, I would really like to thank everyone who reads my blog and comments for giving me a reason to carry on. I would also like to thank the writers of the blogs that I read - whether they know I exist or not is a different matter.

Back in November I marked my 1 month anniversary with this post and since then a lot has changed. In that post I had just got my mage to level 85 - she still remains my third level 85. Some time around my 1 month anniversary I got my copy of MoP and headed into Pandaria. Since this I have got my hunter to level 90 - finally!

My recent twitter exploits have been interesting and well worth doing. I don't have my own personal twitter so it really was a new experience but it has certainly put me in-touch with new people.
I was also very fortunate to have a fellow UK blogger Kaitz mention my blog in response to WoW Insider's question What are your favourite WoW blogs? This got my blog a load of page views and at the time of writing I'm currently on 2880 pageviews!

Unlike with my 1 month anniversary I haven't achieved anything spectacular in-game recently. But I did get a surprise visit from Navimie last night! I was so excited when I saw the whisper from Navi and it really was a surprise visit considering it wasn't server maintenance on her realm. Once I'd finished my dailies I headed over to Bloodmyst Isle to see Navi. I won't give too much away as she'll no doubt be blogging about her visit sometime in the week.

For the final bit of this blog I'd like to introduce a new blog mini-series that I'm starting. I've noticed that a lot of bloggers have mini blog series within their main blog that they update preiodically. I really like the idea of doing something like this and have got what I think is a brilliant idea. Back in December I sent Kaliy, my furtive father winter recipient, a mini-guide to winter season pets. Subsequent comments/discussion with Kaliy gave me the idea of battle pet teams based on a theme...

Now I know it's not quite the A-Team but I am hoping to get as close to the A-Team of the battle pet world as possible! My intention is to create a Battle Pet Theme Team for in-game events and real-life events starting with a Lunar Festival theme tomorrow.

20 Days of Gold Making: Day 7

If you were starting over again (maybe on a new server perhaps), how would you start building some capital & what goal would you set yourself?

Whilst I play Alliance 95% of the time, I do have a dark-side and play Horde-side for a change. I would play more Horde-side if my Tauren, Moochew, was on a different server. I want to find a new server for my Horde-characters and I spoke in more depth about this in an earlier post.

For the purporse of this post I will assume I've found a new server and have re-created Moochew (and some other alts) there. So, how would I start making some money?

I'd like to say something like - 'I'd watch the auction house for a few weeks and work out what sells well on this new server and go from there' but that would be lying. I would certainly keep an occasional eye on the AH but I wouldn't do this in any more depth than a quick browse when I'm near one.
"I wonder what sells well here?"
I would definately take a gathering profession on Moochew (or whichever character I leveled first). This would probably be herbalism and then I would take inscription as my second - as everyone needs glyph's. I think I would also condsider having a tailor as people always need bags - including myself. Another profession that I find makes money is engineering (via selling pets/mounts) so I would probably consider a miner/engineer combo aswell - depending on how many characters I take on leveling.

As I mentioned in a previous 20 Days of Gold Making post (Day 2) I've never had a money-based goal. If I were to start again on a new server I think I would try having a goal. However, I wouldn't be too strict about it and would probably be more focused on leveling.

20 Days of Gold Making: Day 6

Which market has made you the most gold over the years?

The honest answer is I have no idea. I tend to sell whatever I have lying around in my bags or I've got a surplus of in the bank.  As I really don't have a clue what the honest answer is I'll talk about the top 2 markets I usually play as these are most likely to have made me the most gold.

Selling gathered profession materials
By 'gathered' I mean herb and ore/bars that I've collected and for ease will also include cloth. I've always sold any surplus of these materials and found that it can be a good way of making gold. However, the quantity and price at which you can sell these items really depends on the amount available on the market and demand. Some days its easy to sell a stack of 20 ore for over 200g, aother day the same ore will make maybe 50g. It's safe to say this market is very unpredictable but one I've found to be worth playing.

Homemade pets & mounts
Theres a hole range of in-game pets and mounts that can be homemade and sold for a profit and I've played this market since I was able to make my first pet. I think this first pet was the Pet Bombling made by an engineer. I have made duplicates of every pet that I'm able to make and sold it. If the market price is low and I won't make a profit then I keep hold of the pet until it will. Concerning mounts I sold the first Mekgineer's Chopper that I made. I managed to make a tidy profit that paid for half of my own chopper.

Aside from selling gathered materials and pets/mounts, I try to sell whatever I can - from gems to food. Not everything sells but I think it's always worth a shot.

What's your daily ritual when you first log in for the day?

Earlier today Kaitz posted asking "What's your daily ritual when you first log in for the day?" as a mini community event. Here is her answer and I have to say that my daily ritual starts off in a similar way...
  1. Log Bankingbob (banker alt) and check mail. Put up any new/expired auctions. Check for any bargains on the AH. Store any materials for keeping in the guild vault.
  2. Log my maggie and do the pet battle dailies in Winterspring (Stone Cold Trixxy) and Deadwind Pass (Lydia Accoste) for the Sack of Pet Supplies.
  3. Log my hunter and...
    • Harvest my crops, re-plant and do the Tillers dailies.
    • Fly south and do the Anglers dailies.
    • If I feel like it I'll do the Klaxxi dailies but recently I've either been forgetting them or skipping them.
  4. After doing the above I can then do whatever I feel like.

20 Days of Gold Making: Day 5

Do you keep the same banker alt or do you change them up occasionally? Why?

When it comes to banker alts I've been very loyal to Bankingbob and have used him from the start.

I guess it's fair to say that I have considered what will happen when I run out of character slots on my main server. I know the chances of me ever leveling Bob is slim because he's a priest and after my first experience of a priest I don't think I'll ever go back. This means that if/when the time comes Bob will be going and one of my alts will take over as my banker. But if I ever need to undergo this drastic overhaul is another matter.

This question and in particular Nevs answer has got me thinking about how you get to know sellers on your server. There's a number of banking alts that I know and recognise sat in Stormwind on a daily basis. One in particular stands out and he (assuming the player is male like the character) doesn't have an amazing reputation. In fact I know people who will willingly pay more for an item off of the AH than buy his stuff. I'm honestly not sure why his reputation is so bad but I suspect it's partially due to him over-charging and constantly spamming in trade. Fortunately, my banking alt seems to have atleast a neutral (if not better) reputation.

Wednesday 23 January 2013

20 Days of Gold Making: Day 4

Do you use a banker alt/guild? When did you start doing that & why?I started off storing items in my mains bank but soon it was full of random items. Some of these items were recipes/schematics/plans that I didn't want to get rid of thinking tht one day an alt could use them. The majority of it was materials (i.e. cloth) that again I didn't want to get rid of knowing that one day I would have an alt that was a tailor etc. Naturally, I am a hoarder and am reluctantly to bin most things and it seems this habit followed me to the vitual world.
In addition, I was getting fed up of hearthing back to city's just to access my bank or to use the AH to sell or buy some stuff. As a result I was generally using an alt to sit in Stormwind and wait for post to sell/auction. This worked fine until I wanted to play on said alt and moved them out of the city into the world.
As a result I made Bankingbob and my own private guild 'Bank of Jo' at the end of April 2012. I clearly wasn't feeling particularly creative with my naming when I did all this but oh well. Bob is my only male character and has a few times been misread as 'Bankingboob' which is quite amusing.
Bob's brilliant. He lives in the Dwarven District of Stormwind somewhere in between the bank and AH. He ferrys items between the two and the mail boxes located outside of each. It's so much easier to log over to him to purchase something or to send him some items to be sold or kept in the vault.
As mentioned above I'm a self-confessed hoarder and having my own guild vault has only served to increase the problem. I have 5 tabs for: mining related, cloth related, herb related, food & gems (odds go wherever theres room). If left unchecked I often end up spilling items over to other tabs which then messes up the system and is a pain. I now have regular clearouts and keep as little crap as possible.

Since I reached level 90 I've been working on my rep with The Tillers and unlocking the farm etc. Finally my hard work has paid of and I've reached exhalted status but it's not over yet. I've still only got 12/16 seed beds unlocked and am still working on lots of friendships, rewards etc.

Whilst I've been working on the daily's etc. I've been taking screenshots as I think the Valley of the Four Winds is a great zone with some lovely scenery etc. Plus I've found some very quirky places on my travels.






Awesome Storm 1.
Awesome Storm 2.

My farm currently.
Awesome goat mounts!!!

20 Days of Gold Making: Day 3

What were the first techniques/tricks/tips you used when starting out?
So if you've read Nev's answer to this question you may have already read part of my answer.
My first real way of making gold was vendoring everything! It's amazing how grey trash items soon mount up and of course as you progress up through the levels the amount of gold you make from this increases. In part this technique requires you to loot everything possible - something that I do. I think it's good practice to loot everything as you never know what gem you might find hidden away in a pile of corpses.
However some exceptions - in the form of items that should be auctioned (if possible) as opposed to vendored. For example any cloth that you pick up and don't need. I've only recently started tailoring and have made a lot of gold from selling various cloth on the AH. Personally, I store cloth in my guild bank until it's selling reasonably well but at the end of the day anything is profit.
This brings me on to professions and specifically gathering profs. Now all profs have a means of making you money but I find the gathering profs to be the best. The individual items may not make a lot (compared with items crafted using other profs) but you will almost definately sell more. I'm sure nearly every alchemist has bought a couple of herbs, miners some ore to smelt and so on. Plus it's worth noting that whilst most professions work hand-in-hand with a gathering one (i.e. leatherworking & skinning) it doesn't mean that everyone chooses to do their own gathering and may instead buys materials.
The above three hints/tips were what I started off using and still do! They're simple and effective - what more can you want?

Wondrous Warlock!

Last night I re-discovered my warlock and what a wondrous time I had! I created my warlock a long time ago. She's a dwarf and I made her in-part to resemble me and as such spent a lot of time working on her appearance etc. Sadly, once I got her out into the world I found I didn't much enjoy playing her. I banished her away to the bottom of my character list where she remained until last night. I don't know exactly when said banishing happened but I know it was before the changes to warlocks occurred.

I felt like doing something different last night and felt it was about time Boltzy got a second chance. She's demonology spec and transforming into a demon is soooo much fun! However, I can't be sure how long this hooneymoon period will last. I won't rant too much more about how much fun I had and will instead present some screenshots that I took.

Top-left: My warlock normally. Bottom-left: half transformed. Main: fully transformed.

I love the green-purple look when transformed and using drain life.

Where the Unknown Soldier can be found.

At Raven Hill.

20 Days of Gold Making: Day 2

If you set yourself a goal, what was your goal & at what point did you set it?

I've never really set myself a goal in the sense of "I want this amount of gold by this date". My general goal is to have enough money to be able to buy items that I want in-game as and when. Two such items really stand out for me so I'll talk a little about them.

Reasonably early into my WoW-life I saw someone in Stormwind on the Sandstone Drake or rather someone transformed into one. I loved how it looked and asked my boyfriend how I could get one. For me this is quite a common occurence (even now) I see a cool mount and instantly consult my walking, talking guide (aka the boyf). In this case he explained that the drake can be made by alchemists with the recipe. At the time I lacked an alchemist and no-one I knew had the recipe. And so it began - my quest for gold in order to purchase this awesome mount!

Later I again saw a mount I wanted and this time it was the Mekginner's Chopper. This mount was more achieveable as I had an engineer and was in the process of leveling her. However, these bikes don't come cheap and it's necesary to grind rep with the Alliance Vanguard to get the schematic. Whilst I was working on the rep I made making gold a key priority. I was still building a stock pile of gold to purchase the Sandstone Drake and so I just increased my efforts.

On Day 8 you'll find out whether I ever met my goal of having enough gold to purchase these two mounts...

20 Days of Gold Making: Intro & Day 1

Last weekend Nev (of Auction House Addict and She Rides Dragons) posted her idea for a community event - 20 Days of Gold Making. I've been following her and others responses (list of participants here) this week and have decided to take part myself.

I don't consider myself to be as good a gold maker as many of the participants but it is something that I attempt to do. I guess I'm more of an apprentice gold maker still learning hints, tips etc.

Day 1 - When did you start gold making & what triggered it?

In short, I had a keen interest in gold making from the beginning and a combination of greed and wanting cool mounts triggered it.

My boyfriend had played WoW for several years before me and is a 'gold maker'. So when I started he told me to vendor everything grey and not to just drag & drop delete it from my bags (which I was doing at first). He also introduced me to the auction house. From this I started to auction gathered items (i.e. herbs and ore) and start making gold.

Initially greed and the desire to make as much gold as possible was what fuelled my selling and thus gold making. Then I reached level 20 and could buy ground mounts. This then gave me something to spend my gold on. I wasn't content with having just one mount - I wanted all of the ones I could. On my hunter, I had enough gold to buy the Brown Elekk, Purple Elekk and the Gray Elekk so of course I bought all three! Despite only needing and being able to use one at a time.

Since I started playing I have found more and more things to spend my gold on and have thus increased my efforts to make gold. You'll hear more about this in the subsequent questions.

Furtive Father Winter: Take 2

The past few days I've been working on my second FFW gift. A few of the recent events participants were yet to receive their gifts and Aka had made the decision to arrange secondary back-up gifts. I volunteerd to produce a gift for one of these poor peeps and got Tyledres.

I started reading Tyledres' blog before Christmas so had a feel for her blog style and game interests. My biggest issue was what to produce for someone who's been waiting this long for their gift!?! It was like extra pressure.

In the end I came up with what I thought was a suitable gift. For me my favourite feature of Tyledres blog is her "Who's the Warcraft Pet?" game / mini-competition. It had also occurred to me that she doesn't get to play these games as she's too busy creating them. And so my gift idea was born - a companion pet quiz.

My quiz encompassed 3 rounds: hybrids, colour inverts and a wordsearch. I won't give too much away as Tyledres has decided to spread the 3 rounds over several days with the answers being revealed on Tuesday. So stop by her blog over the next couple of days and see if you can work out the answers too. Round 1 Round 2 Round 3 Answers

Also a quick reminded for anyone who missed my blogs the first time around - you can view my gift to Kaliy here and all about what I received here!

A Long Overdue Stable Clearance

One of the things that first attracted me to playing a hunter was their ability to have and control pets. These pets (used to) have different pre-defined qualities (spec) that made them favourable for certain situations. For example, ferocity pets are for dealing damage. This has now been re-worked so that you can change your pets spec and therefore it's qualities.

Whilst hunters abilities and those of their pets have been worked on since I started playing (Feb 2012) one thing hasn't changed - the number of stable slots available. Hunter's can carry five pets with them and store up to twenty in the stable. Now, this is quite a few slots but if you're a bit of a hoarder like me it really isn't.

The three main pets I use.
I haven't tamed any new pets in Pandaria as a result of having no room for them. Despite his a number have caught my eye for example, Stompy (Petopia, Wowhead). Plus, more and more tameable pets are being uncovered in the Patch 5.2 PTR, from Direhorns and Devilsaurs to new spirit beasts.

So I've decided a stable clearance is in order. Whilst I'm not brave enough to just go and abandon them right now I will be black-listing some pets that will be the first to go as and when necessary. Below I'm going to share with you my collection of pets - their names (only those that I have regularly used are named), who they are (model, rare name etc.), any random info.

Transmog: Mortal Kombats Jade

Cast your mind back a week or so and I posted my first transmog related post. In this blog I showed off two transmogs for my hunter and on for my mage. The latter being my entry for The Amazing Transmog Survivor Contest! You can see everyone's entries here and find out who made it through to the second round and who didn't here. To cut a long story short I didn't make it through to the second round. I was a little disappointed but hey-ho.

I've decided to continue to play along though since I really enjoyed it. For the second round the theme is Mortal Kombat, as in the old game. The deadline for entries is today so soon enough we'll get to see the competitor's ideas. In the mean time here is my take on the Mortal Kombat theme...

I have vague memories of playing Mortal Kombat on PlayStation and of a woman dressed in green. With a little internet searching I uncovered Jade (below).

My inspiration - Jade.

Random Screenshots

The last couple of days I've stumbled across some weird & wonderful scenery that I thought deserved screenshots. So here they are...

Finally got myself a Black Drake.
