Morrowind Class Generator v2.1

Patch Notes:
  • Generator no longer creates classes with redundant skill combinations: e.g., the Acrobatics skill does nothing that can't be duplicated with Alteration.

The Mastered Sword

At long last, I have finished my "100%" run through The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. By "100%," I mean as close to 100% as I'm willing to get. I finished the game on Master Mode, completed every quest I found including the DLC, solved all 136 shrines, and filled the Hyrule Compendium. I did not collect all 900 Korok seeds, though I did find the 441 required to maximally expand Link's carrying capacity. Suffice it to say that I now know this game like the back of my hand.

Morrowind Class Generator v2.0

It occurred to me that it should be trivial to enhance my Morrowind Class Generator to programmatically suggest which factions to join given the character's skills, so that's exactly what I did. Morrowind has 11 joinable factions (10 without the Bloodmoon expansion), each of which has a list of "favored skills." Most factions have six favored skills, the exceptions being the Imperial Cult and the East Empire Company. In order to be promoted within a faction, you must meet the minimum requirements for at least three of the favored skills: the final promotion requires at least 90% in one skill and 35% in two others. (Skyrim players may be surprised that Morrowind will not let you become the Arch-Mage unless you actually know magic!) The factions also have "favored attributes," but the promotion requirements linked to these are so low that they can safely be ignored.

Rebel Scum

It's time for my hot take on Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D, coming a mere 20 years after release!

A Colossus, Shadowed

The colossi are dead and Wander's mission is complete, but was it really worth it?

Not all those who Wander are lost

I'm past the halfway point of Shadow of the Colossus, and thought I'd focus this post on the experience of fighting the mid-game colossi.
