Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 268

As with all rng equipment based grind games, I have immediately lost most of my interest and investment in Genshin.
I was doing lots of side quest things with the intention of just doing what I could do before moving on to the more difficult areas.
And the game decided to force a difficult level increase on me.

Now my DPS can’t keep up at all. The enemies have tens of thousand of health and I do 100 damage per hit on average.
I hate it when games punish you for not min-maxing dps.
I either need to spend a fortune getting better units for better combinations, or I need to stop doing what I was finding fun and do what they want me to do so I can play their game.
Awful design.

All I wanted to do was get collectibles and achievements before I moved on to the next town.
And now I spend thirty minutes fighting bosses and failing every time trial challenge there is.
Way to ruin it for me.

And it’s not like there’s a readily available fix too because upgrading my equipment needs items from the next town which is probably a nightmare to reach because all the enemy levels have doubled!

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 267

I was intending to do some challenges on Tears of Avia to write guides for them since people were struggling with the difficulty.
But then I got distracted.

Now I have too many games to balance once more.
I want to complete the Tears of Avia achievements, I’m also supposed to be playing on the shared Empyrion server my discord has once more, and on top of that I’m playing Genshin Impact in my spare time now.
As a result I no longer have enough time for my games. If it’s only two then I can balance them, one for streams and one for free time off stream.
But with three it becomes awkward.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 266

Well I finished the Mondstadt arc as you could call it of Genshin Impact.
I guess it works as a plot hook!
Now I guess I just need to hunt all those orb thingies and finish off the area achievement so my OCD can let me move on to the next town…
But let’s do that when it’s not 6am…

Yes I copied this straight from discord. I was too tired to think of some new way to phrase it.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 265

For the first time in basically forever I had writers block trying to write this post.
Mostly because…well I wasn’t really sure what to say?
I don’t know it’s a bit weird.

Normally I have a bunch of random stuff I can say, or at least something partially relevant to the story content, site or discord.
Failing that I can ramble about something that happened or a new hobby or just some dull private stuff.
Anyway regardless of the situation I usually have something but I just stared at this for about forty minutes trying to figure what to type.
In the end I have given up and decided to type about having nothing to type.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 264

So I have this idea for a short story but I have no idea how on Earth I would actually write it because it’s from the point of view of what would arguably be an animal.

But the basic premise is that some advanced human or alien civilization genetically engineered an ecosystem of large space organisms in place of building automated interplanetary infrastructure, and then long after that species went extinct or moved on that ecosystem kept on going.
So I’ve been building this map of how I imagine some form of ecosystem like this would operate.
Mainly for getting the necessary nutrients for organisms in space and moving them around. Given the artificial nature it’s all cooperation based so I focused on symbiotic relationships.

For example I thought of these really cool space fish that have these large photosynthetic and photoelectric frills that double as a form of locomotion for moving being planets. Then you could have these large jellyfish things that hover in the upper atmosphere of gas giants and collected gasses which they then exchange with the other organisms for the nutrients they need to live. And you could have these whale things that cruise through asteroid facilities to get the metal rich and water rich rocks.
So you could have the jellyfish and whales transfer material to the fish then they go towards the sun and use the sunlight for electrolysis and other processes to break them down and refine them, where they then fly back out to hand over the refined materials in exchange for the raw materials and the cycle repeats.

And you can expand to include each part of a chain needed for life. I think it’s strangely poetic.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 263

I finally managed to drag myself out of video game addiction this weekend to watch some anime.
I finished a few, started a few others.
Namely today it was Assault Thighs, Picked Up By Gods, Strike Witches and yesterday there was like a couple of others I forgot the name of but whatever.

Man Warlords was a let down.

Oh wait I meant Assault Lily not Assault Thighs.

Anyway, what do you suggest? I have a huge list to get through.
Million Lives, Irregular, Day I Became God…
