Warhammer Online: Return of Reckoning

For those who may be interested.

The private Warhammer server is thriving, and of course is still free to play. My son set up his own Youtube channel to post videos of the games he plays, and allows me to post my own videos from recent fights against the forces of Destruction. I even learned how to record music over them, and offer a few here for your enjoyment.

1. Short video from a scenario battle in Nordenwatch:



2. Election day fights in Dragonwake:



3. Keep defense in Reikland:



4. Nordenwatch scenario with one versus one action. That fight starts at the 3:20 mark:



5. Keep Defense in the Chaos Waste:



Thanks for watching. And if you would be so kind subscribe to my son's channel.

Pardon the ignorance, but does this mean that it is still possible to play WH online?

Yes, it is. The server is free to play, run by a group of Devs in Europe. They have made some additions and balance changes to the game and are attempting to clean out all the crap Mythic instituted when they ran the game. I, as you can see from my videos, am having a blast. Especially given I am now retired and don't have to play while grading papers.

If you decide to look into it and actually log on, a few helpful tips. Given this is a private server, the Devs rule. They do not put up with any crap from anyone, therefore the in game trolls which helped ruin the live version don't last long here. Which is good. Also never under any circumstances in any chat channel anywhere, including the forums, mention money. The guys running this server are doing it entirely at their own expense and don't take a dime form anyone. Games Workshop would shut them down if they did.

Back when the live version of this game died my greatest regret was the loss of the opportunity to play along side my two sons. We had a great deal of fun together, and as a father I appreciated that.

Lightning has struck twice.

This is the first video I have captured where both I and my younger son are fighting along side of one another. Fun, and protracted, fights in the Chaos Waste. Thanks for watching.

I created a video I am rather fond of. Quoted from my Youtube page:

Recorded over the months of May and June, 2017.

To some, this video may appear a bit...strange. Please indulge me as I provide an explanation.

Some years ago I watched a movie entitled "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind," based upon the cult memoir of Game Show legend Chuck Barris. In his book Barris, who was known in Hollywood for creating "The Dating Game," "The Newlywed Game" and for hosting "The Gong Show," made the claim he was also a CIA contract killer. A Government hitman, in other words.

Not many believed the claim, but to this day the proclamation still permeates Boomer mythology. Regardless of whether Barris did kill some thirty people as an agent for the CIA, watching the movie exposed me to the third of his daytime television creations, "The Gong Show." Since viewing the film I have watched as many episodes of "The Gong Show" as I could find on Youtube. Seriously, they are an absolute scream.

For those of you not familiar with the show it aired during the late seventies, two years on NBC followed by two years in syndication. Barris hosted the show for the duration, and created an experience which was edgy (for its time), funny, and revolutionary. If not for "The Gong Show" there would be no "America's Got Talent." The primary difference between the two is the former was hilarious and actually entertaining, while the latter is primarily elitist self-indulgence.

Chuck Barris died on March 17th of this year. As a tribute to the man and the show he created I decided to use bits from "The Gong Show" as the unifying thread for this video. At times watching "The Gong Show" on Youtube has made me laugh so hard my sides hurt. In that spirit I hope you enjoy the result.

Fight sequences featured begin with a number of One v. Ones followed by group combat in both scenarios and open RvR. As always respects to all my fellow players, with a particular nod to Torgaan. Keep at it, the payoff is worthwhile. And remember, never bet against the Minnesota Vikings at home in the winter.

Featured music primarily drawn from various sets by DJ NightStar. Additional music includes "The Sunset" by Experimental Feelings and "Blue," by Worakls. All music remains the property of its original owners and is used for entertainment purposes only.

Featured segments from "The Gong Show" sourced from various Youtube channels. Thanks to those who put them up. If you have the time I suggest you check a few of them out.

Oh, and for those who may wonder whether, at the 33 minute mark, she actually did, the answer is yes, she actually did. I just edited that part out.

As always thanks for watching.

Two other recent efforts for those who may be interested. As in "From Hollywood, Almost Live!," "Flashing Swords" begins with a number of One v. One fights, the very essence of the game.

For those who watch thanks and I hope you enjoy the videos.

My latest video effort, including the Youtube description. Note this is a re-edited version made to remove a one minute segment flagged by the Sky Streaming Service:

Published on Aug 15, 2017

Recorded over the time period of May through August of 2017.

I haven't posted a new video lately because I haven't been playing much lately. The reasons for that are no reflection on either the game or the server, but rather the fact there are other activities which have demanded my time. However a couple of days ago I logged on and became involved in a truly inspiring series of fights in Eataine. That inspiration resulted in this video.

Granted it is a bit long, but I had a bit of material stored up. In keeping with my habit of attempting to establish and incorporate a theme into my videos, this time around I chose an object of personal literary and media affection. All of us have literary characters we on some level identify with or just happen to like. One such favorite of mine is featured in this presentation. Hopefully the rulers of the television universe will allow my tribute to stand.

Game of Thrones is an excellent television production, and in my opinion Arya Stark one of its finest characters. Her particular story progression has been truly compelling to watch, with her transition from troubled little girl angry over the death of the Butcher's Boy to one of the most bloodthirsty assassins the world of Westeros has ever known. Good stuff, and in some fashion I feel her story does mirror, or at least reflect, the progression of any player-character running around in RoR. For all of us whom have crossed the higher renown threshold, it is good to remember at one time we were all no one. Or if you prefer how bloodthirsty we can all be.

For those so inclined I have included a sequence of events listing in the forum posting for this video. I thought I would make things easier for those who may not want to either watch the entire effort or only wish to view certain segments. A number of good fights are recorded here, running the usual gamut of available Tier 4 activities. The SM Madness Scenarios were fun, as were the various small scale actions. I hope you all enjoy.

For those where were there, as I promised the massive fight in Eataine is included as part of this video. That fight was, without doubt, the best mass-scale fight I have ever been a part of, to include my years on Live. At the time it appeared as if everyone logged into Tier 4 was there taking part, and simply put it was the type of fight players long for, and the type of fight which helps make this game great.

Featured music is from two artist, DJ Nightstar and DJ Electric Samurai. The sources for Nightstar's work I have linked to prior. The original source for Samurai's work I can't link to, however he has many music videos posted on Youtube, so look him up. All music remains the property of its various owners and is used for entertainment purposes only.

Game of Thrones segments appear elsewhere on Youtube and are used here for entertainment purposes only. Note to anyone from HBO, I am a subscriber, which means I pay up front to watch.

As always respect to my worthy opponents, and thanks to all of you for watching.

Hello again.

Metaphor is a wonderful and expressive literary device. It allows one to draw comparisons between two unrelated topics, ideals, actions, objects, or emotions, particularly in regard to the abstract. However metaphor as a device isn't restricted to literature, it can also be utilized in the visual arts. The video posted here represents a metaphor of my own crafting, a comparison and expression of how I have, for a number of years now, interpreted logging onto and playing Warhammer Online.

Alice is an apt metaphor, I believe, as when we log on we all take a trip through the looking glass and enter a world alien to our own. It is a world filled with wonderous sights, strange creatures, and perilous danger. It is continual and surreal adventure of the mind, an exercise in fantasy and make-believe combined with a thirst for conflict fueled by bloodlust. We enter to search out and destroy our adversaries, and we do it joyfully, in a perpetual cycle of live, die, repeat. The world we enter, like Alice's Wonderland, grows curiouser and curiouser, fraught with wonder and peril and littered with treasures to satiate desires both subtle and gross. But its not for the timid. In essence, an engaging place to visit, but we wouldn't want to live there.

I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date...

As usual this video features a number of different types of conflicts. One v. One's have been a bit rare lately, but there are a few. Other action includes group fights in open RvR and varied Scenario battles. A complete time index listing for all fights is posted below the video, to include citing as many players participating as possible.

As always respects to my worthy opponents, with a particular nod to Garner. When I couldn't get into the Six v. Six action in the Umbra Chaotica, he at least was good enough to offer me a duel. Insert scream here.

Music by the usual suspects, to include DJ Nightstar, Deep Shepherd, Sima Deep, and Aronsa84. All music remains the property of its various owners and is used for entertainment purposes only.
