About 100+ lockpicks later, Nevan finally has the staff skin he deserves.

While I’m pleased that I finally got a fossil out of the buried chests, I’m still pissed off.  I’m pissed off at ANet’s shitty RNG algorithm, which rewarded other people multiple times for opening half the number of chests I had to just so I could be rewarded once.

And please, no spiel about how one “earned” their fossils. There’s no earning involved when it’s all about dumb luck.

Mog Fact #1: Mog used to have a brogue

mogruith:

He was raised with a very proper, noble manner of speaking, but he had to learn a deceptive and unintimidating persona as a Rision mesmer. This persona was that of a simple commoner and Mog adopted a Rin brogue for the part. After the searing, Mog adopted this persona full time for at least 8 years.

Why did he stop? It wasn’t explicitly stated, but it disappeared after he met Maeve again 8 years after the searing. My interpretation of this is either Mog rediscovered his pre-Rision persona by meeting someone who knew all about the personality shift or Mog no longer felt the need to hide his original personality when he settled down with Maeve.

Armand LeBlanc also knew Mog before and after he adopted the personality, but Mog felt his temple upbringing was something Armand didn’t understand, so I don’t think he saw Armand the same way.

Mog’s brogue comes back occasionally, usually when he’s joking around or being playful, as the Rision persona tends to be.

I still hear Colm Meany in my head whenever I think of Mog.

This one conversation really rubbed me the wrong way.

I suppose it makes sense in the context of the world in which Tyrians live.  The charr have their farhars, after all, if one needs an example. 

But I’ve known real world people who’ve moved metaphorical mountains while raising a family.  Sometimes they fail, sometimes they succeed wildly, and sometimes they just get by.   It’s why this left a sour taste for me.

And really, about 90% of my characters have no business commenting on someone else’s parenting skills — or lack of them — IC or OOC.
