CattyVixen's Gamesite


I am a secretary in "Rent Spel", that is a gaming community or association or what else you call it.

I play everything from X-box to roleplaying games. Right now I play in three different RPG'S, and I am also a Gamemaster/mistress in one roleplaying game.

I will give this blog one more year. If I feel that I don't have time, I will not keep it after this year, but right now, I will try to write as much as I can.

So, Welcome!

Addictive Games!

2013Posted by Cia Sun, December 08, 2013 20:40:34
No, this time I'm not talking about some Xbox game, or even PC games. No, I'm talking about all these "mini-games" for your phone/tablet...

Everything from "Tamagochis", "Subway Surfer" to "Sonic", you can get them all, and more, by buying them or through free apps..

So, why am I bringing this up?
Well, there is a game on my phone that sucks it's battery dry almost every day. ^^
"Logo Quiz" is the name of the game, and as the name suggests, it's about logos, and what company they represent.
Incredibly addictive! And mind-twisting frustrating..
For two days I have struggled with a logo of a black horse head.. I've searched online, tested every letter, and tried my way over and over again.. And yet I couldn't find anything!

This is what the logo looked like. And as I said, I really struggled to find the answer for it!

And finally! After "buying" some help, I finally got the answer for it! When I after so much work, I googled the company to learn a bit more about it.
And I must say, that the logo has nothing, whatsoever, to do with the company, or what the company works with.. But that might just be me!

Well, now I'm finished with it, and I can struggle with the next logo! ^^

The answer? Well, it wasn't something I just could have guessed, or stumbled upon, that's for sure.. Viator is the name of the company, apparently! It seems to be some form of "Experience-booking-hohaa", or at least that is what I have understood after looking around on the internet.
So you can book experience and activities.

Well, now when I've given them a little free PR. Maybe not good PR, since I had to search for two days just to find their logo, and I've not been far from tears and rage while doing so. But, all PR is good PR, right? And they really seem to need it, because I've never heard of them before this day. smiley

Now it's time for me to tackle the next logo! Wish me luck! ^^
Hopefully, this won't take me more than one day...


What happens on GWRS!

2013Posted by Cia Fri, November 29, 2013 19:46:32
Usually stays on gothicwars.
But I have got permissions from both of those who made the pictures, and I am allowed to put them out here on my website, so I will now do that! ^^

This isn't so much about games and thoughts about games or gaming as it is about friendship and to be in a community here on the internet!

So.. What can it be now, how long have I been CattyVixen out there on gothicwars?
It's over a year... In over a year I have checked that forum, posted allot of (mostly) crazy things, and built up a reputation.

It started when someone in the Raven Guard wanted me to join them. Finally, I registered myself and thought that I could try...

I was damn shy. I never thought I ever would manage to post a single post there, but I did post an 'application-post' and I was welcomed there!
That's how I became CattyVixen, "Sister of Battle in the Raven Guard"!

Today, I have a reputation. I have 5 puppies and 1 turtle out there on gothicwars...
(A fun story)
And I am the XO of the Raven Guard...

Allot has happened since I joined the Raven Guard on gothicwars, and I sit here today, and have two people that (probably) has been inspired to do something about me. Me?! Me! ^^

First I will put out the cards that 'Doomdrinker1' did!

I think they are awesome! He has done a great job and he used one of the things I am 'famous' over on gothicwars... Waffles! ^^

Next picture I figured out by a PM had been done. It was a shock for me to see, but I love it! ^^

With the words: "Ok, have to admit, since finding out we have a Adeptus Sororitas Corvus in our midst I wanted to do this drawing,"

And here I am! (okay, seriously, I'm not this hot IRL, but we can pretend I am! ^^

And this is when it is all done!

It is an amazing picture! So damn awesome! ^^

Thank You! Both of You! Thank You!

World of Tanks Beta!

2013Posted by Cia Tue, November 26, 2013 23:34:23
Soo.. I tried this World of Tanks after a friend yelled at me to try it! He had tried to make me play this for a long time so to make him happy and to try it out, I became a Beta-player on Xbox.

So, I tried, and I kind of liked it, and I will continue play it, as it seems like right now, even though I have never played it on PC...

So, My friend find out I have started to play it, and he kept yelling.. So today I said like "I can never make you satisfied now, can I? You yell at me that I shall start playing WoT and when I do, you yell at me because I play WoT?"
His answer was that he never said that I would play it on Xbox, he wanted me to play it on PC.... smiley

Well, that's how it can end up! ^^

Anyway... Xbox One is out... I see people on my friends-list having it... And it won't be released here in Sweden before 2014... That's no fun... We really, really wants it, and we need to wait for it.. For soo long! I think that is unfair...
Me, is a sad kitten... :(

Oh! And cards! I have my own cards now! And as soon as I have figure out how to save them, I will put them out here, if the one that made them allows me to! ^^

And I have been drawn! I don't know what you call it, but I got a PM yesterday saying to check out one of the threads, and there it was! One of the guys on gothicwars has making me into a painting! And as soon as he's done, and if he allows it, I will save that picture too and show it to you! ^^

So... I don't know so much more right now, I'm pretty tired, and we all know that my posts and blogs goes down to just be a mess when I'm tired... ^^

So, I better say goodnight now, and we pretend that this blog became a good one! smiley

Roleplaying games!

2013Posted by Cia Sun, November 03, 2013 16:17:55
I want to discuss RPG's with you today.

I am in two different RP's IRL, and 5 writtenbased RP's on gothicwars as it is right now.

I had a question on eternal crusade's forum, if I wanted to join, and I thought:
"Sure, I can try that"...

So, why would I wanted to discuss RP's with you then...?

Well, I want to talk about what makes an RP serious, and what doesn't.

I don't mind 'having fun', 'fun comments' or 'doing stupid things' sometimes in an RP. Absolutely not.
But if it become too much of it, I start to see the RP as un-serious, and I start to lose interest of it...

But, on the other hand, if it is too serious, it can become boring, and then I also start to lose interest in it...

I'm very shy, and my GM's needs to give me my time to do something, and the other players need to wait for me to make my choice or say what I want and stuff like that, which can be boring for them.

What is it that makes an RP serious on a good level then?
I think the most important thing is that the GM is serious about the RP, and try to keep it on a very serious level.

I also think that it's important that the players are serious when they play, since otherwise they ruin it with their comments.

I also think that it's important to know the character you play, or at least grow with the character.

I do have one very un-serious GM in an RP. And I don't enjoy playing that RP, since it's most laughs and fooling around in it, which could be fun if it wasn't in an RP. I would love to do that with my friends, but not when I am going out for a mission.

So.. I also have an RP where the GM is really good. He is serious and in the same time he let us be un-serious in a good way, and with a level that don't ruin the game.
But then it is un-serious players. Players that interups, and fooling around.
It usually ends up with me saying nothing at all... And what's the point with that then?

So... Where's the line between serious and un-serious RP's?
And what do you think makes an RP good and serious?

A Dilemma!

2013Posted by Cia Wed, October 16, 2013 21:21:30
Me and Iron started a discussion yesterday, and I thought I would share that with you... ^^ Just because I love you so much! smiley Not really, but because I really would hear your view of it...

The dilemma is: When two people (or more) in the same family is gamer's and/or gamerette's, how does that work if you only have ONE game-console?

Both me and Iron like to play.
And we only have one xbox.
But we make it work.
If I want to play, I ask him if it is okay.
If he wanted to play also, we either share the time we have or compromise.
We also respect each-other's important activity's such as clan-matches.

We do also have a cute respect against each-other. If I am out on xbox, and Iron asks who's online on his friendlist, I always check that for him. If it is someone that he really want to talk to, then I give over the xbox to him. But, if I am in a party with my friends, then he respect's that, and let me stay.

Then of course we have our:
'I want to play, you played two nights in a row, it's my turn'days...
Usually we just play a third game against each-other to see who wins and that person gets the xbox that night... ^^
If it is so much night left after we fought against each-others... Which it's usually not... :P

Hmm.. Then we have the third alternative, but me and Iron have never tried it...
"Take away the toy the two kids fighting over"
As I said, we haven't tried it, BUT if we should, I can swear that we would start to fight... We would fight and be angry at each-other all the time... ^^

So.. What do you think... How can gamer's/gamerette's survive with only one game-console?
