Zephirah’s Adventure: The Sound’s Of Saturday!

“Music Note Bokeh” by all that improbable blue is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA 2.0

Greetings and welcome back to the adventure friends! As of late I have been listening to a lot of “Creative Common’s” or “Royalty Free” music. I have found a few that I enjoy.

The reason is pretty simple. A relaunch of the podcast. I want something of great quality that is rock and will get any listener excited to move forward. I also am considering a possible cohost because they are just as nerdy as I am.

Just as a FYI, as of late I have been listening to a lot of what people would consider as Industrial Pop and a couple bands that are in the rock genera that are not as big. Just hope that I am able to find something before I go to record.

With love from the adventure,

Zephirah

Zephirah’s Adventure: Thursday’s Thought’s!

So, it has been a while. I know my intent was to post when I could but truth be told, after I posted that last one I did not foresee becoming overtaken by my orthopedic issues once again and having to handle that. Also since then we had to handle cancer in our family’s pet Brando. We had put him to sleep so he would not be in pain. We also got a new dog named Landon and a new cat, the orange tabby pictured, named Ernie. They both are a great addition and joy. The other cat next to Ernie is named Carly. He is our sweet boy cat. The black and white kitty is Bella and she is the sweetie of the group. So other then the pets, my health, and working a bunch, nothing else has really changed in my life. You are probably wondering why come back after so long of not maintaining the blog.

Yeah, it has been a while and I really have no excuse other then depression kicking my ass. I have been working on that and now I feel like I want to give this a good old collage try again. I really am not going to hold myself to a set schedule because lets face it, the sheer amount of content that I was putting out previously was absolutely insane. That was five to six days a week of creating a post and editing on top of a podcast. All of that with a full time job and health issues. I hardly slept. I was constantly nervous. Truth be had, the post were ok and I wanted my post to be high quality and I never felt like I was able to provide that. Now I believe like I can because I have working on my health and now I am able to adjust around my work schedule a little better. Talking about scheduling. I would like to be transparent here. I have other commitments now as well. I am blogging for a charity that I absolutely fell in love with a while ago. The charity’s name is ‘Veterans’ Gaming & Mental Health Mission’ or VGMH for short. I met Justin, the President & Chief Executive Officer of VGMH, via his stream on twitch. He is an amazing character and absolutely felt like he was one friend that I would have. I stayed around because of that and because he is one that I can always count on. With the new adventure with VGMH, I am excited to be back here a little more regularly and now blogging there.

You can find VGMH here: https://www.vgmhmission.org/
You can find Justin’s twitch channel here: https://twitch.tv/j_kard

Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait is a legendary serpent green and blue creature that allows you to play an additional land on each of your turns. Whenever a land is under your control, you may draw a card. So, you basically get an additional land and a card to put in your hand. With this card and board wipes in your hand you can easily win the game easily.

Zephirah’s Adventure: Thursday Thought’s!

Hello and welcome back to the blog. If you are new here thank you for stopping by! This week we have a lot of election and political talk. Yes, every vote and voice matters. Every person’s experience (no matter weather you are an American or not) matters. However I wanted to pull away from the elephant in the room and cover a different topic entirely.

I was poking through the internet figuring out what to do the post on and I ran into another set of blogging challenges and I am rolling this particular one all together. They all fit quite nicely. So I figured why mot, right?

From the post titled “Five Post to Write Right Now” it asks the following questions. As the questions are listed I will have an answer each of them.

1 The place where you felt happiest or safest.

I remember as a very young child that my older brother and I would go to a theme park that is local to the area by the name of “Kennywood” with our grandmother, Dorothy. We would ride the kid rides, watch all the shows, have ice-cream and pizza. By the end of the day we had our fill of soda and cotton candy. She spoiled us as much as she could on her limited income.

2 An antiquated item like a pay phone you had to dial, penny candy, or your Charlie’s Angels lunch box.

Growing up, I think up until I was about eight, I would always get a “My Little Pony” or a Barbie doll for my birthday, a random holiday, or just because my grandmother wanted to get me one. Again, she spoiled us rotten when we were little.

3  A food that reminds you of your youth.

I remember when I was school age when young when our parents would order pizza and we had left overs I would love to eat cold pizza in the morning before heading off fir the day. I preferred cheese or just peperoni and my preference hasn’t changed much for cold pizza for me.

4 What you thought you were going to be when you grew up.

When I was in middle school our teacher that handled our yearbooks also handled notes we would write ourselves in the 5th grade. We got it when we graduated eighth and went to the high school and we also got another copy when we graduated from twelfth. I still vividly remember the letter I wrote myself and what I wanted to be. I wanted to be writing for Rolling Stone magazine while being on air at a radio station. In some vary big ways I am glad I did not end up doing the magazine gig.

5  Your childhood fear.

When I was young, and it is still true to a large extent, I am afraid of heights. I was also scared of various creeks in the house we lived in.

I know the “questions” were a little off in the wording and was not posed as questions but I did adjust my answers to reflect what the original post and blogger had intended them to be. Her name is Robyn and she has several post over at “The Daily Post”. You can catch her work here.

Zephirah’s Adventure: Whimsical Wednesday!

Hello and welcome back to the blog. If you are new here thank you for stopping by! Last week I had started a new job. Working from home is a nice change of pace truth be told. However, most of us work way to much for so long we forget to take care of ourselves.

According to Psychology Today, Self care is often overlooked and if done it will help reduce anxiety that we often run into on the daily. The article goes into great detail about making sure you sleep, eat food that will not upset your stomach, and even saying no when you need to (You can read that article here).

Other list as well as the article mentioned earlier suggest exercise and getting outside, being creative, doing something nice for someone else, Also a lot of articles and things online suggest meditation and yoga. Truth be told I find yoga a great work out and coupled with meditation it calms me via breath work. Along with taking my good old dog, Brando, for the occasional walk in the park works wonders. Even if with social distancing, waving hello to a neighbor and asking them how they are doing is always a nice interaction.

What is it that you do for self care? Feel free to share via the discord listed below!

Zephirah’s Adventure: Music Monday Ft. Gorillaz!

Hello and welcome back to the blog. If you are new here thank you for stopping by! I struggled with this post for a few reasons. I usually like to have the post done and scheduled a few days in advance. With a new job, the holiday, having to clean and rearrange my whole room and office space it has been an interesting weekend.

As of late I have been listening to a lot of different things. One of those things has been the new album by the Gorillaz. The album “Song Machine, Season One: Strange Timez” has been a delight to listen to.

You can listen to the full album via spotify here.

My dearest coffee,

Hello. I hope I find you with quality cream and sugar. In a small cup or a big cup, I always find myself to have a great time when you are near. You are hot in the colder fall and winter days. Iced or blended with caramel during the hot spring and summer months. You perk me up in the morning and keep me motivated on the long nights.

You always smell wonderful. Weather black, with French vanilla or hazelnut. You have so many diverse personality trait’s. Cappuccinos are one of my absolute favorites. However I can not forget about your espresso heart!

You have visited and grown around the world. That is a quality that is different and lovely. Thank you for being a wonderful friend!

Zephirah’s Adventure: Thursday Thought’s!

Hello and welcome back to the blog. If you are new here thank you for stopping by! So lets start with the statement “I made an oopsie!” shall we. In the last week, I started a new job, forgot about a Saturday post that I wanted to do, and this one originally went up blank with just the title. Yeah, its been a wild couple of weeks.

On that note I wanted to make it right and at least make the attempt to do a post for the day. The good in all of this is that I did start the new job, things are going well, and truth be told I know for a fact that I will do well. I also know that I want to keep up with the schedule that I set up for the rest of this year for the blog. I may need to re-evaluate when it comes from the new year on though. For a few reason. I do not want to overwhelm myself like I did with a previous blog and working. I ended up deleting that blog and I wish I had not done that honestly. However I did learn a lot from it.

I know the upcoming weekend is going to be busy with me re-arraigning my room where I work to have it be more efficient and work friendly. I also think that it will help me overall with the creative things like this blog. Other then that I am going to be watching the two movies I watch every year. Those movies are “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and “Halloween”.

If nothing else, I am at least excited for that.

Zephirah’s Adventure: Whimsical Wednesday!

Hello and welcome back to the blog. If you are new here thank you for stopping by! This week’s “Whimsical Wednesday” post I am diving deep into my obsessive collection of pet’s in Warcraft and my real life pets.

As a huge thank you to Warcraft Pet’s in assisting me with the adventure of finding and upgrading my battle pets in World Of Warcraft. I have an image on the left side of the blog that you can click on to visit their site.

My battle pet stats from WarcraftPets.com

As of right now, I have a total of eight hundred and eighty pets. Of those pets three hundred and thirty nine of them are at max level that is twenty five. Seven of the pets are common, one hundred and thirty three are uncommon, seven hundred and forty are rare. As you will see from the image there is also an epic and legendary section. At this point we as players can not obtain either of those titles for our pets. However, there are legendary pets out in the world that we can fight against! I have so much fun wondering around Azeroth in search of the next pet.

I still have some work to do though. According to the stats, there are a plethora of my pets that are not at the rare level or at max. I also have six duplicate pets in my inventory. So how do I fix that? In Azeroth we have the opportunity to do world quest in Battle For Azeroth to obtain Polished Pet Charms to upgrade their level and type. I am always looking for those quest to complete so I can move forward with upgrading them.

Brando
Lost Netherpup!
Brando
Fast asleep on my bed!

While I am talking about Warcraft and it’s Battle Pet’s I am going to feature a few here that are named after my families and I real life pets. The first is Brando, a Pitbull. In game he is the lost Netherpup. They both are adorable!


The black and white cat is Bella. The dog just under her chin is Princess. Next to her is Shi Shi the poodle, the smaller white pawed cat is Buttons. Then a random chicken!

Zephirah’s Adventure: Rolling Restart!

Welcome back to the adventure! If you are new here hello and thank you for stopping by! This week’s “Rolling Restart” post I am going to cover how my week went in Warcraft and the events that are happing in the next seven day’s.

Doomstick in Pandaria

I have been leveling a few characters, starting with my Demon Hunter. I have been having so much fun with her while in Pandaria. Her name is Doomstick and she got her name because I was watching a friend’s stream and he randomly said the name and I liked it so much that I created the character on the spot. I also created a new character named Zelozelos, an undead rogue, that I will be leveling in War-mode after she gets out of Exiles Reach. Overall, it has been a good experience with the leveling changes. I never really been good at playing a rogue but I am going to make a strong attempt to level her. Plus, for an all green, non-boney Undead she is pretty cute.

With all of the movement I am gathering a lot of gold and moving it to an alt guild bank. I am making the attempt to get gold cap in Shadowlands. It is going to take me some time to reach that goal but am making great strides.

On that note, let’s talk about the next week of events in Warcraft! Hollow’s End continues this week. Starting Tuesday (the day this post is released / posted) the World Quest Bonus Event begins! Do not forget to pick up the quest. Most importantly, have fun in game!

Zephirah’s Adventure: MTG Monday!

Welcome to Magic Monday. The post dedicated to Magic! The Gathering. This week we will be looking at the card Cyclonic Rift from the Return To Ravnica set. The set came with two hundred and forty nine cards total. That translates to fifteen Mythic, Fifty tree rare, eighty uncommon and one hundred and one common cards.

Instant
Return target nonland permanent you don’t control to its owner’s hand.

This card is an Instant that return the target nonland that you don’t control to its owner’s hand. This would be great if you are about ready to eat a bunch of damage to the face or your spread. It is a very strong board wipe if used correctly.

This card is an Instant that return the target nonland that you don’t control to its owner’s hand. This would be great if you are about ready to eat a bunch of damage to the face or your spread. It is a very strong board wipe if used correctly.

On the flip side, If it is casted early it will delay your game and truth be told not a very good move. If you do not have a strategic plan to play the cards in your hand properly then you are just wasting the time of the other player’s at the table. So, play smart and use the tools you put into your deck.

Thank you for going on the adventure with me today. Hope you had as much fun as I did. I would like to thank the creators of MTGoldfish. Their website is always a good tool when preparing these post about Magic.

To learn more about this card at MTGGoldfish please visit their website here.

Zephirah’s Adventure: Pokémon with OliverN3RD!

Hello and welcome back to the adventure. This week’s “Thursday Thought’s” is transitioning into tabletop, collection of trading cards, and all things Pokémon with my younger brother OliverN3RD.

Last week we were talking about collecting items via games and physical items and why they bring us so much joy. When we were having the conversation I came up with the idea for the post and asked OliverN3RD to pick five of his favorite cards to play. It did not matter weather it was online or a physical card.

The following is his list. They are as follow’s:

5 Melmetal GX

Oliver picked this card due to the playability the overall meta and the premise when he first started he didn’t see a lot of play with this card on the board.

4 Rayquaza GX

A dragon card is one of his favorite cards and the reason why he picked he picked it was because of nostalgia going back to diamond and pearl. He loves the dragon break and it had so much play and it won four out of seven times in tournaments and is a great reset card.

3 Mechamp

Oliver has been playing this card for a long time. At least since 1995 he was pulled into competitive play because of this particular card. Machamp is Oliver’s weakness via Pokémon. Fighting Tag is a switch card and goes into Champ Buster.

2 Gladion Trainer

This card is simple in standard play with Rayquaza. Oliver says that this is a good card to use because it lets you look at the face down cards and do a bunch of damage right away.

1 Cinderance V

Fire striker bunny that is one of his first V cards and was quickly integrated into his deck. A stadium card that uses Crimson Legs over and over for a lot of damage. It also buffs the health pool.

Zephirah

Zephirah’s Adventure: Thursday Thought’s!

Hello and welcome back to the blog. If you are new here thank you for stopping by! This week’s “Thursday Thoughts” post is going the planning I put into the blog and the post. Blogging is thought to be a hard thing to do when it comes to time and planning. I toughly enjoy it.

Sitting in front of me while I type up this post I have a notebook detailing what I will be working on in the next several weeks. I know, it sounds crazy, but I would rather have an outline then nothing at all. Having a plan is phenomenal rather than sitting here wondering what in the world I am going to work on for the next post.

Notebook for planning!

Preparing, having an outline, working on the post, scheduling it to be published, the release of the post and then promoting of that same post is, for the most part, fun. Time consuming? Oh heck yes. In some ways even hard? Yes, due to me having an attention span of a gnat at times. Staring blankly at the screen, hoping something will come to me. Other times, a thought of an idea comes up and I am doing research to assist me in writing and flushing out the post.

The short version, if you want to be a blogger, you can be. I encourage you to give it a shot. Do whatever works for you. My advice for you is to plan ahead as much as possible.

With love from the adventure,

Zephirah

Zephirah’s Whimsical Adventure: Halloween Edition!

Hello and welcome back to the blog. If you are new here thank you for stopping by! This week’s “Whimsical Wednesday” post I wanted to talk about the up coming holiday and my thought’s about it. Even to explore some entertainment I enjoy annually like book’s, movies, even podcast. Just so you know how I edit post like this as well, when a page is listed with the .com – click on that and it will bring up a different tab for you. Alternatively you can click on the Italicized words in the article’s content’s. It will be various words but pay attention to the word “here”. Those will be clickable every time.

Halloween has been described by history.com and Wikipedia to be tradition that originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain and is marked as a significant of the four quarterly fire festivals, taking place at the midpoint between the fall equinox and the winter solstice. The festival has been notated in old historical text to last up to three days. It was filled with prayer and sacrifice. Prayer to keep them safe from the fairies and spirits. The holiday has come a long way since then however we did keep a plethora of traditions. Like bonfires, dressing up in a costume for a night, collecting candy, and being absolutely exhausted the next day while eating chocolate for breakfast with joy in the heart.

Some things that my family and I have done every year is to the movie of the same name on the holiday. Halloween, the original, came out in 1978 and before my siblings and I were even born. Our parents and their friends would have went to the the theater to watch it when it was released. A great slasher movie directed by John Carpenter. I also make it a point to watch “The Nightmare Before Christmas” annually as well. As far as podcast, I love to have LORE by Aaron Mahnke. In 2016 he released a two part show titled “Trick Or Treat”. You can listen to those particular set of shows here and here. Also, please visit his website for more information about his other podcast and work. You can visit the lore podcast site here!

What are some of your Halloween tradition’s? What memory do you have as a kid trick or treating? Feel free to share them with me via twitter @Zephirah_Zella or join the discord and post in the general channel!

Zephirah’s Adventure: Rolling Restart!

Hello and welcome back to the blog. If you are new here hello. Thank you for stopping by! Tuesday’s on the blog I plan on calling these post the “Rolling Restart” and talk about my week in Warcraft, any news related to the game, and what will be going on as far as events in the next seven day’s.

This week I have spent a lot of time leveling various characters. My druid, for as much as I love the character, scares me to tank with because there is a lot of pressure to know the fights and generally knowing what you are doing. Hopefully I can get the hang of it before the new raid comes out. The idea here is if one of our main tanks are out for the night I can take over for the team. I also have spent time with my demon hunter. Thinking I am getting better with the damage spec; however, I have died a lot on her. It has been fun so far.

Other then the 9.0 patch drop, for the next two weeks the Hollows End event is live. If you do not have the headless horseman mount, get in queue! Starting Tuesday the weekly quest is arena’s.

This has been your rolling restart! Hopefully I see you in game and have a bunch of fun.

With love from the adventure,

Zephirah

Zephirah’s Musical Adventure: Morgan James!

Hello and welcome to the blog! If you are new here hello. Thank you for stopping by. The first time I heard Morgan James sing was with Postmodern Jukebox and it was a cover of the Irish American’s Hozier song “Take Me To Church”.

Postmodern Jukebox Featuring the incredible Morgan James

I found myself click the replay button a few times. I felt a different connection to the song then I did when I first heard it by the original artist. Her voice is a wonderful, full of angelic vibrato, and talent. I did not think someone would cover “Take Me To Church” that would be able to match the musical skill that Hozier has. It was very apparent in that moment that I was very wrong. It is always nice to be wrong and love that she proved that to me.

On October sixteenth she released two albums by the name of Quarantunes volume 1 and Volume 2. They are a lovely mix of music that is familiar to all of us. Songs like “All By Myself”, “Every Time You Go Away”, “Show Me The Meaning Of Being Lonely”, “Bridge Over Troubled Water”, “What A Wonderful World” and many others.

Bridge Over Troubled Waters by Simon and Garfunkle. Covered by Morgan James.

Zephirah’s Adventure: Unsolicited Advice

Hello and welcome to the blog! If you are new here hello. Thank you for stopping by. Today I am covering a blog post I ran into while I was in the “Discover” section in WordPress.

Kevin Kelly on Youtube

I found the original blog post fascinating. I was not looking for anything in particular. As I started to read the list of unsolicited advice and all of them I found all of the bullet points to be a story of a intelligent and caring man that just wanted to share what he had learned in his life. Weather or not it was solicited or unsolicited I find the advice something I needed to hear and read. The best advice I read and heard in Mr. Kelly’s post and video is “A vacation + a disaster = an adventure.”

With further research, Kevin is Senior Maverick at Wired magazine. He co-founded Wired in 1993, and served as its Executive Editor for many years. He also He co-founded the ongoing Hackers’ Conference, and was involved with the launch of the WELL, a pioneering online service started in 1985.

I am thankful to learn what I can from the life of this man and many others like him. You can read the post here.

With love from the adventure,

Zephirah’s Adventure: Feature Friday!

Hello and welcome back to the blog. If you are new here hello. Thank you for stopping by! This week for the “Feature Friday” I am diving into the topic of “Blogging Challenge’s” and why I am motivated to participate.

Since the inception of this blog I have occasionally posted about a plethora of Warcraft related topics from a challenge blog hosted by Z and Cinder. A vast majority of the readers I am attempting to draw in play, in some compacity, Warcraft. Weather it be Classic, or what is now know as “Retail”, or the live up to date version. I have dabbled in Classic a little but it did not keep me for long because I am having so much fun in retail. It is no surprise that I am a player of the coveted MMORPG. If you go back to any previous post in the last two or so years, a couple post will be glairing back at you.

Blogging challenges are a good source of motivation for me because it give me a topic and provides some direction. Once I have settled on a challenge, I tend to gather as much information as I can, then I get started with the post. I stay engaged and focused. However, it is not for everyone. Nor do I expect everyone to follow suit on a blogging challenge either. Some would find the idea of blogging challenges to be stifling to their creative endeavors.

I find doing these post fun, challenging, and something that I enjoy. Thank you for stopping by and letting me take up some of your screen time!

With love from the adventure,

Zephirah

Zephirah’s Adventure: Thursday Thought’s!

Hello again friends, hope life finds you in good health and happiness. I, for the longest time, wanted to expand on the Twitter Hashtag “Thursday Thoughts” for various reasons. Also, I find myself not utilizing Twitter as much as I used to. Not saying that there is anything “Wrong” with the platform. Guess I just got over the phase of wanting everyone to know what was on my mind in one hundred and sixty characters at a time. Oh, and a blog, in my humble opinion can expand on my thoughts clearer then Twitter ever could. This week I wanted to describe what was going on in my life as well as to just type blindly go into the blogger abyss to see what came out at the other end.

On that note, the last week has been weird. Tuesday we seen in Warcraft the 9.0 patch go live. To see our characters that we love and adore go from 120 to 50 was and still is wild to think about. I also spent about an hour thinking of ways I can improve the blog and I set a schedule for myself for the month of January. It has worked in a big way. Setting a schedule for me has been motivating. Striving to be a better human is another thing I have been working on as well. I find myself knee deep in morning meditation and driven to get work done that I would otherwise procrastinate to get completed. I do not expect myself in any way to be perfect though, I am not Buddha or Jesus. I do try to follow what Buddha and Jesus teaches. Basically, Do not kill people or be harsh in speech to others. I find the Dharma to be a fantastic way to live. Loving your neighbor as you would yourself can be hard in this day and age considering how much we see our African American friends and neighbor’s being killed and hated just because of how they look. Also, Covid 19 is not helping matters. Honestly, I think we need to be patient and kind to other people all the time. We do not know what is happening in our neighbor’s life and truth be told I am not sure why we try and make other people have a bad day.

Long story short, the Ten Commandments from the Bible and the Buddhist Eight Precepts need’s to be revisited by a lot of us. It would make all of our lives easier if we would follow a basic set of rules. Over the summer I spent quite a bit of time in Buddhist monasteries. It was lovely to see how much the monks cared for their communities, adults and children alike, no matter their skin color. Also, each time I did go and visit the monasteries, I spent hours quiet. Just observing and learning. It is a wonder to see how much that can truly help a person. There was also weekly yoga sessions that I found to be not only good for the body but also good for the soul.

Now that I typed all that I am noticing just how nervous I am to let the post be published; however, I know this will help someone in the long run. Thank you for visiting the page today & for joining me on this adventure.

With love from the adventure,

Zephirah

Zephirah’s Adventure: Thursday’s Thought’s!

Writing and maintaining a blog is hard work. It takes up quite a bit of time to make sure that you are promoting, editing, Writing, and trying to bring readers to the page. Engagement is always a good thing for places like this on the internet.

At times I wonder why I even started this blog. I can list a few reasons right off the bat. Firstly, I promised a friend I would, and with the exception of two moves and some health issues that I have that got in the way; however, I have kept up on the back end of this. I know for you as a reader that does not look very good because there is quite a bit of time between post in the last year. Secondly, I am not the most gifted person with written words. My focus oscillates quite a bit and always has. Be that as it may, I want to continue with my adventure in blog form because it is something that I have learned from.

The biggest thing is how to be patient with myself as I learn. Also just because you have some interruption’s does not mean you can not come full circle and continue what you started. For that, I will push forward, do my best to post here and hopefully you as a reader enjoy it just as much as I do creating it.

On that note, I would love to interact with my readers more, only if you are interested and want to, please feel free to join the blogs discord. We have channels for just about everything. We all are nerds in our own right and talk about Dungeon’s & Dragons, World Of Warcraft, MTG, books, TV, Movies, or any other topic that make our little geeky hearts burst!

Zephirah’s Adventure: Happy Birthday Sugar.Mama!

My sister’s birthday is in three days. She is going to be 32. She also is a giggling, happy, and awesome person. Not just saying that because she is my sister.

There are times when we just jump into Hearthstone and we clobber each other every other round. It is always fun when we are gaming. Never a dull moment with her around and I would not change it.

Happy Birthday our lil sweet boo boo bear. We love you!

With love from the adventure,

Zephirah’s Adventure: Creature Feature with Z & Cinder!

You can find Z & Cinder’s blog here:

https://zandcindersblogchallenge.wordpress.com/2018/11/20/topic-43-45-its-a-multi-topic-post/

Topic 43 – Why do you choose the games you do?

With Warcraft I am a collector, of pets mounts and gold. As of late I have been so enthralled with the capability to foster friendships with doing what you already do in game. For example, Manlow a friend of mine because of Diablo 3 and I have spent time in voice channels looking for the “Baby Ape” Pet. The cape of Stranglethron is so beautiful with its sunsets that I took a screen shot. It was in fact a wonderful time spent looking for the pet. He has, the last time I checked, a total of two more pets to find in the Eastern Kingdoms. As far as Diablo 3, friends pull me in there. I love playing my crusader. I do not choose to tank in Warcraft for a plethora of reasons, one of those reasons just so happens to be my crusader. Shield slam is the best when you have the right tools and armor. Also goblins, lots and lots of goblins. Enough said. Also I get to pick on DeadGreed from the “Shattered Soul Stone” Crew. He is amazing and wonderful to talk to. Good gaming guy! I have learned a lot from Greed.

Topic 44 – 30 days of photos!!

Topic 45 – the Bucket List revisited – and recreated!

When it come to a bucket list that is revisited and recreated I will have to do another post for that. Including what is in my bags. That place is a mess, and working on selling things in the auction house. However I will compile and post that post in the next few days. I am going to need time to accumulate all of the list and photos!

With love from the adventure and to awesome transmogs,

Zephirah

Zephirah’s Adventure: What’s In A Name?

What is in a name? A rose by any other name would smell just as sweet.

Zephirah, the name, as a girl’s name is of Greek origin meaning “west wind”. Funny how it matches Warcraft and its titles system. Zephirah of the west wind with humble beginnings in the outskirts of Stormwind. As a gnome, she picked up tailoring and enchanting. As she grew older, her skills became that of a master. Soon, the king would visit to ask for his armor to be draped in the finest of silks she could find. She swiftly became meaning of the dawn, gothic, dark and lovely. As the shadows took over her body, she wanted her revenge against the lich king and to take over her crown once more. Ascending the steps of the citadel a carnivorous Arcane Mage named Sondra and a freshly death knight powers mixed by tossing a fireball and a death and decay. The powers were overwhelming, her queen above her floating down from the heavens, she whispered her name. A rise young one, you have more work to do. Save her, the mage, put her in her slumber.

To be continued. . .

With love from the adventure,

Zephirah

Zephirah’s Adventure: Sleepless In Seattle Edition!

Greetings Boy’s, Girl’s, and Gender rebels! I am Zephirah. Many of you may have read this very blog previously. You may remember that I, good ol’ Zephirah, am the writer and editor of said blog. If you are here from previous post, Welcome. If you are new here it is so nice to meet you, please leave a comment to this post and introduce yourself.

Apparently I am back after several months in the greater Seattle area. After just over eight months I want to take a crack at blogging again. It may not be the same as previous years; however, I would like to try to do this little thing again in the best way I can.

On that note, I am not going to set an official schedule until I know for sure I can keep up with that idea. I also know I am into a plethora of topic’s and nerdy things but I am not a professional at any of those topic’s. The love of D&D, Warcraft, Magic! The Gathering, comic’s and pop culture has me by the proverbial balls. I would like to feature people that work in the said industry. For example, a dungeon master that would happen to be streaming their games, a animator of comic’s, a game developer or someone that is on the team of Roll20 or a staff member of Wizard’s. An actor on any number of the made for movie comic block busters we all know and love! ect, ect.

I would also like to have fans of any of those nerdy things, that are a forward thinker, and one that is known in the community and have an interview or have them do an article for the blog. That is the general idea.

Hopefully I can make these thing happen and move the blog forward.

With love from the adventure,

Zephirah

Summer 2019: Where have I been?

Its been since just before my birthday in April that I posted here. I figured to give myself some time off.

Truth be told, I think I was giving myself way to much to do with all the topics I was covering and with medial issues that cropped up on top of working, I was in no mindset to blog or produce a podcast.

I had promised myself that I had to miss doing it before I came back and to feel strong enough to sit down and type for more then a couple hours at a time. Now is that time. I am not going to sugar coat anything because I dont believe reading the post full of bullshit or trying to win someone over will do the trick. I also always try to hold myself to “be the same online as if someone was standing in front of me in real life.” and it has served me pretty well over the years.

On that note, I have thought about what the topics are going to be about and I honestly have no idea. I have not played Warcraft much over the summer for the reasons already listed. I also believe I got burnt out a little bit. Not that I don’t love the game still, I just needed a break, and honestly its been good. I have played the first three weeks of the Diablo 3 season and I am having a blast. I have learned a lot. As far as Diablo, I really am enjoying myself and there are already a bunch of podcast and blogs out there that are good tools for you to use and I do not want to take away from them at all.

The other thing that I have been doing less of is D&D, for the same reasons, and honestly I am working on building a campaign that I want to work out and that I, in the end, be very proud of. By this time next year I want to have it all written down, play tested a few times, and ready for the first go through with players. Honestly, I am nervous about how people will respond to it but I am sure in the end with all the resources online and really good players, and fellow DM’s, that will launch me into a good set of sessions with the players.

So, my plan for the blog for now? To have a post up at least two to three times a week with a verity of topics, and not stick to the normal schedule that I did last time. Yes, boys and girls, it will be random!

Thanks for being here and following the blog for as long as you all have!

Warcraft Wednesday: What’s in your bags?

Greetings and welcome to another ‘Warcraft Wednesday’ post! Today I decided to tackle another challenge from Z & Cinder’s Blogging challenge that I thought would be fun to do!

Whoa, thats a lot of cloth!

As you can see I have been gathering quite a bit of cloth to create bags over the expansion. I have a lot of enchanting reagent’s as well. The biggest thing that you will notice is that my priest has not transitioned into the newest bags for BFA. I have not felt the need to transition over because I feel like I have enough room for what I need.

I wanted to thank Z & Cinder for the blogging challenge! If you wanted to try any of their challenges please visit their site.

Tabletop Tuesday: Krenko, Mob Boss!

Greetings to the new Tabletop Tuesday post. This week we are going to be covering ‘Krenko, Mob Boss’!

This red legendary goblin creature cost 4 mana, It can create an x amount of 1/1 red Goblin creature tokens, where X is the number of Goblins you control. The one I have in my collection comes from the ‘Duel Decks: Merfolk vs. Goblins’ set.

I have been considering to build a goblin deck for a little while now. I am going to be adding this to the set list.

What are some of your favorite red creature cards to use in your deck?

Meditation Monday: Hey, look a new thing is happening!

Greetings readers! I know this is something new for you. Change is always something that is a huge undertaking and for the most part good.

In early November of 2018 I had decided to begin my journey with the practice officially. So far, I have been a lot more calm and able to focus on things that need my attention with ease. With a set meditation schedule and working out, life overall has been a lot more peaceful.

Recently the ‘Meditation & Mindful’ discord community that I am a member of had a forgiveness guided meditation led by one of the admins. The following day a newer member of the server posted a video of a guided meditation of the same topic. Coincidence? More then likely. However, the spring does bring renewal, the promise of warmer weather and a future of summer.

It was a breath of fresh air to hear the words Greg was speaking during the meditation. The ability to be at peace and to let go of the hurt that is pent up in the heart. To actually forgive and ask for forgiveness of any pain you may have caused. At first, I was resistant. Then I thought to myself one singular word and question. Why? Why would you hold on to the burden of hurt, pain, the heaviness. Why hold that in your mind, make your heart heavy, and be a bitter person. Honestly, carrying all that around made me depressed at times. Letting that go and to be forgiven made me feel light.

Here are both video’s. Enjoy!

Thursday Though’s: Change is coming, again?

Greetings to another post here on Zephirah’s Adventure. Thank you so much for stopping by. I have been thinking about changing daily topic’s again. As a challenge for myself, to show what I have been up to in life, and honestly change is good.

Here is what is going on in my head as far as topic’s! The list is as follow’s:

  • Monday: Meditation
  • Tuesday: Tabletop (D&D, Magic! The Gathering & any other tabletop game!)
  • Wednesday: Warcraft!
  • Thursday: Thursday Thought’s
  • Friday: Feature (Anything I am interested in – not just gaming related!)
  • Saturday: Weekend Warrior (A wrap up of the week, what is going to be expected for the following week, and anything I would like to banter about!)
  • Sunday: No blog post

I am not sure about this just yet. This is not set in stone. Seems like a good plan however.

What do you think?
