    I've been missing all those informational posts! I hope all is well - as well as can be.

    I've been missing her too and keeping my fingers crossed that she is deep in beta testing.

    Where Is Sigrdrifa?

    I don't know this person but a few days ago I was throwing pumpkin bombs at people in game and I bagged someone with that same name (not a variant).

    I'm sure of this because the name caught my eye and I sat for some moments, trying to figure how the name should be properly pronounced.

    (When I was a kid I'd ask my mom how to pronounce certain words and she'd always tell me to "sound it out." I guess it's become a lifelong habit.)

    Anyway, I hope your friend is okay.

    I had cat scratch fever and then have chronic fatigue. Yay, me! I didn't even know that was a real thing and not a song title. I'll be playing some when the new expansion releases, and as soon as I know what all you have to do to actually do the content, I'll put up a guide to playing Ballads of Zimara.

    Sigrdrifa is Old Norse, and was the name of one of the Valkyries. It means "victory blizzard, in the sense of a swarm of arrows incoming being a "blizzard". I usually just go by Drifa (DREE-fah). The whole name is something like SEE-yur-DREE-fah.

    Problem with "sounding out" names is that some names are Irish, LOL. For example, Sigrdrifa is pronounced Sugar-daddy.

    Kidding! I have no idea, but it does look similar to many names I've seen from Ireland, (Siobhan, Sean, Cirrain) LOL.

    Oh, I'm so glad to see your face! (Well, not yours exactly, but you know...)

    Ugh, no fun at ALL with fatiguing illnesses. I've been coping with multiples of those for many years and EQ has saved my sanity (more or less). Sorry it took you away from the keyboard. So, so happy to see you back!

    Edit to add: Thanks to the mod for redirecting this to the right forum - I boo-boo'd when I first posted it.

    Good to know Drifa is still powering forward. Cerilynn says 'hi', by the way.
