I've Been A Very Bad Girl...

So, so bad. :) My sister got me into EverQuest II and now I can't stop playing it! For those who don't know, it's a massive online roleplaying game set in a world of good and evil fantasy. You interact (or not, if you don't feel like it) with others playing the game. I have two characters, one is a bad dark elf and the other is a good wood elf. The dark elf has dark, gray skin, white hair and light, light blue eyes. The wood elf has tatoos on her face and her profession is a scout. The dark elf is an enchanter. I've been running around killing things for a week, and making money and buying and selling things. Each character even has to eat and rent a room to live in, etc... It's so cool. And when you choose your character race (human, elf, halfling, gnome, etc..), you also choose a profession (scout, mage, warrior or priest) - the best part is that you totally shape the appearance - full lips, thin, wide, narrow - eye color, tilt, brows, hair color, highlights and style, the shape of the face and body. Can you tell I'm addicted? Gah. Like I needed this. Oddly, enough, though, it is inspiring me to work on my second Wardsmen books since that, too, is semi-fantasy. Well, that's my excuse anyway!

I'm going to try and limit my playing, and use this as a reward for when I'm done my word count.
