So. Um. Yup. Everything is still growing. That's what's growing in my garden.
I got back in the saddle again with WCIII and played as humans against elves on Turtle Rock. Really quick game. I got creepjacked about 10 minutes in and despite having only my archmage (lvl 2), mountain king (1) and 2 footmen, I manage to fend off the priestess (3) and a couple of archers and huntresses.
After that I just hung around the entrance of their base, killed a couple of dryads and a mountain giant while the rest of my forces built up and finished the job there.
I'm still just past the 1/3 mark of Atlas Shrugged. Still liking the book, though I don't entirely agree with the author's social views, aside from socialism not working.
