MMO Viking has been having a lot of fun recently in Everquest 2 Altar of Malice expansion.  The wrecking crew has moved up to 1-grouping raid zones.  We’ve killed a few of the bosses so far.  Beolf has some nice new raid gloves and forearms and very nice adornment upgrades for his neck and rings.  Tonight Beolf has been harvesting for Primordial Adornment drops so far I’ve got Tiers 1 through 4.  Fun stuff.  Praise Thor!

Modern Day Mythology

I’m a little worried about the new Thor movie coming out next year.  I am a huge Thor fan, mostly the original myth of Thor.  I’m also a huge Marvel Comics fan.  I grew up on Uncanny X-men.  Back when Wolverine was a cult hero, not the mainstream hero he is now.  A few years back the movie Beowulf came out.  I really wanted the movie to be great because I name most all my Characters in MMO’s after him.  It ended up being alright, nothing fantastic but one part did make me laugh.  My EQ1 character Beowolv the Beastlord always ran around shirtless to show off his manliness / hero-ness.    Beowulf the movie had Beowulf fight and defeat Grendel while being completely naked.  Pretty funny.  All the superhero movies coming out are fantastic.  Ironman, X-men, Batman, Spider-man are like modern-day mythology which is part of the fun for me.  I love mythology.  I have a couple worries about the Thor the movie.  One is at this moment Thor is still at cult status which makes him more cool.  When Thor the movie hits he will become mainstream thereby losing cool points.  When my mom knows what Mjolnir is that means a loss of thousands of cool points.  Another worry is Thor will be a modern-day mythology about an ancient day mythology which is wierd.  I like the casting of Hannibal Lector as Odin and Captain Kirk’s dad as Thor looks good though.  Here’s to hoping the Thor movie crushes like a hammer to a Frost Giant’s skull!

The Guardian

Adanther the Guardian is the next member of the Viking Fellowship I am going to talk about.  After Beowyf and Nindrojrir, Adanther might have the third most actual lotro gameplay time.  Which means a couple things.  The best thing is he is around to help out and will do so whenever asked.  Another thing this means is like Beo and Nin he doesn’t have much of a real life!  Just kidding about that last part, well kinda.  When Ada and Borthos first started playing lotro we yelled at them for both picking guardians, because we already had our Fellowship tank Redranth.  Borthos finally relented and made a Rune Keeper thank Thor.  I make fun of Ada sometimes for being a guardian and not the main tank, with comments like “Hey Ada summon me”  as if he was a captain and etc.  But I have come to realize he does come in useful as the 2nd Tank of the fellowship, great for off tanking especially when there is 2 boss monsters at once.  Also he helped me on one of my final epic quests in Moria when Red wasn’t around which was awesome.   Adanther is another of the X-Everquest crew from Prexus.  In Everquest he played a Frog Cleric which was funny and I enjoyed.  Ada has sworn to never play a healer since though.  Beowyf is jealous of Adanther for a couple things.  Ada gets to wear cool heavy plate armor and gets to wield a huge bad ass two-handed hammer.  MMO Viking loves battle hammers.  Adanther should of been a dwarf but that’s ok.  Being the race of man, the largest playable free person race, the hammer he wields is giganormous.  Seriously that thing would weigh 95 lbs in real life.  Adanther you should name your hammer something cool like “KICK-ASS”.
