My new game Sky..(mumble)...

So I got a new game over Christmas.  It is very popular and has may RPG elements in it and you get to fight monsters and explore an expanding world and I am already 3rd level and addicted to it.  It is called Skylanders.

Were you expecting a different "Sky" named game?

Well Skylanders is cool all the same.  We have been playing it on the Wii and there are all these little figures you can collect and use in the game in addition to magic items, new lands and all sorts of things.

My boys have had the game for a while, but since they know I love witches they got me the figure Hex for Christmas. She is Drow Dark Sorceress whose "element" is "undead".  The game play is fast and really fun.  Simple enough for the young kids to figure it out, yet enough detail to keep me entertained.  In fact I was killed at one point because I was paying too much attention to the details of the game.

Here is my character, Hex, done up as a 3rd level D&D4 Witch.
I decided she is a Drow. Not the best choice for a witch, but it works well for the story.  She has lower than average Dexterity to reflect her lower than average Agility.  She has a floating skull familiar (like in the pictures) and I figured she was cultist. Her Charisma is lower than one would expect for a Drow due to all the evil undead stuff about her.

Pretty good fit I think.  I might have her show up as an NPC sometime.  My boys would get a kick out of that.

Oh. And we got Skyrim too.  Just what I need, more distractions.

Skylanders ROCKS!!!! I got it for my 5 year old for Christmas and I find myself watching him play the game for hours. Now, it seems everyone locally has discovered the game because the figures are near impossible to

Yes, well loved in our household too. The boys got a bunch of figures for Christmas and play play play. And yes, the figures are now hard to come by. (Or come buy)

I think the developers had a stroke of genius connecting the video game to figures. Nice way to keep the money rolling in. /cynic
