How to Run Runes of Magic on OSX

Filed under: Runes of Magic — Cranky Sysadmin @ 8:43 am

I usually run my games using Wine and Linux, but there are occasions where I want to play RoM on OSX. Here are the general steps I used to get it running on an x86 MacBook.

Back in Runes of Magic

Filed under: Runes of Magic — Cranky Sysadmin @ 9:01 am

After being in the dark, gritty universe of EVE, moving back to Runes of Magic is an interesting experience. The first thing I notice is that I seem to have a pile of gold, a pile of diamonds, and a free skill reset. The second thing I noticed is the company’s (Frogster’s) apparent hostility to scammers. There are still scammers, but not like Jita local.

One Billion Dollars!

I finally reached one billion isk in liquid cash (not including assets). Now that I’m in a stable place, I’m going to take a few weeks break from EVE and move back into Runes of Magic. I feel like being a carebear without a concern.

Standings Grind Complete

Filed under: Eve-Online — Cranky Sysadmin @ 7:38 am

My standings grind for R&D agents is complete. Both of my main toons are running 5 good quality R&D agents. It looks like just these toons will pull in more then 130 million ISK per month in data cores. I probably will collect them every 3 months or so to make the pile of cash seem bigger. My next goal is to finally hit 1 billion ISK in the bank. To this end, I’ll run a few level 4 missions for a nice quality agent. Once I hit a billion, I plan to find a home in 0.0 Maybe I’ll take a trip to the Great Wildlands. I hear it’s nice there in the summer.

Standings Grinds Unfun

Filed under: Eve-Online — Cranky Sysadmin @ 10:12 am

I am almost done with the standings grinds I need for R&D agents. Now I understand why many pilots don’t attempt datacore farming. It’s a hard grind to get standings for level 4 R&D agents. Many of the R&D corps don’t have solid high level combat agents, so one has to suffer through a lot of courier and mining missions.

The life of a Nomad

Filed under: Eve-Online — Cranky Sysadmin @ 8:18 am

With my standings grind to get my research agents up and running comes a different lifestyle. Currently, I have no home. I’m living out of my van (transport ship) as I move from place to place experimenting with different types of agents.
