What I Learned Building an Unchained Summoner

What I Learned Building an Unchained Summoner

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about how I’d created a new race for Pathfinder because I couldn’t decide on what pre-made one I wanted to play. That was only half of the character I needed to build, though!

The other half, the class, was a much easier decision. Because I’d been so obsessed with the summoner in FFXIV, mostly because of its adorable carbuncles, I knew almost instantly I wanted to try playing a summoner. And when Shane pointed out that unchained ones were even stronger?

Tales of a League Rookie: My Adventures in Middle Lane

My first foray into League of Legends was as a support. Shane and I duoed bottom lane, so he got me his favourite character for that role, Nami, for my birthday—and I had a grand time with her and her splashy fish-person ways.

Modding My Sims: Makeup Edition

Modding My Sims: Makeup Edition

Lately, I’ve been getting really into modding my Sims game. It started with a heck of a lot of custom content for decorating houses, because I can never have enough furniture.

But after watching Shane spend hours and hours modding his Skyrim character into this amazingly photorealistic girl with purple hair, I started to wonder what I could do to adjust my Sims! I knew I could mod features, but I didn’t know how easy it would be.

Here’s a quick look at what a few quick makeup mods did to Lucy, a Sim of mine:

For the record, I am not running any additional quality-boosting mods on my computer. I just run the basic game, and add CC on top! So it isn’t especially taxing on my PC.

And just for fun, here’s a before-and-after comparison:
