We’re getting Ramen Empire back to its college humor roots, and we’re starting by reintroducing and rebooting Shu. Everything before this point is non-canon, or only quasi-canon.

The comic is late because the day job is a horrible time sink, the dishwasher exploded, and as much as I adore my Fiverr clients, revisions on $5 orders really need to stop being a thing.

Due next on the blog: Talking about Magillicutty, and why I’m jealous of it.

I want to make Wildstar comics so bad, but we need to get through this arc before I interrupt it again. ARG!

Wildstar is amaze-balls, in case anyone was wondering.

We tried an adventure out last night–the first run through, a quest mob got stuck and we had to abandon it. That was amazingly frustrating. The second time went smoothly, but there was a bug with the map that made one of parts of the adventure confusing. Even with the bugs, though, it was fun. Adventures are essentially pick-a-path dungeons with unique mechanics–in the case of the instance we ran, dodging snipers, spotlights, and aerial bombardment while navigating & fighting mobs.

Wildstar SSThe entirety of the place made me completely change my build, twice. And it ultimately paid off. As you can see, Shu Meili, knife wizard extraordinaire, got first in damage. ^_^ And as I have a HOT built into my damage rotation, I also apparently healed more than someone. I suspect it was the other DPS. That guy ate a shocking amount of dirt.

What? You don’t have WildStar yet? Why not?

Get it. Roll up as an Exile on Evindra with us. It’ll be totes fun. Send a message to Shumeili.

I like to think that bus creepers are all actually innocent, awkward nerds who have no idea what the context of their surroundings creates when they spook up on a girl who is clearly uncomfortable.

A Campus Pilgrimage

I think I make a circuit around campus trying to dance around red tape at least three times per semester. The photo / camera / recording / marketing labs are bad, but financial aid is by far the most obnoxious. They’ll send you to sixteen offices, one at a time, in an order determined not by the logic or ease of the route, but by the hellishness of the walking distance. They’ll also send you to fetch things that could be e-mailed or faxed, because reasons, and Lo, this turns sixteen trips into thirty-two trips. And you have no choice but to make their brimstone pilgrimage, because all the money you need for the semester is locked in their interlocked, dry-washing clasp, which is foul like a harpy’s.

Not that I have opinions, or think there is a special copper pot in hell for paper pushers who delight in the misery of people who do not understand bureaucracy. I just want the wonders of modern technology to save me a little leg work.
