“Welcome to my domain. I am Murina the Brave. I have fought countless battles, assassinated many insects, and stolen from right under the noses of pesky humans. My brethren all bow before me and lesser beast, like yourself, should follow suit.”
The creature pauses from her clearly rehearsed speech as she looks up at you, nose twitching, waiting for your reaction. Her fierce stare penetrates your soul.
> Bow courteously and remain silent.
As you bow the creature smiles widely.
“Now I will share a tale the likes of which you’ve never heard. For a lizard like yourself to have made your way here, surely you can appreciate the story I’ve lived and the legend I’ve forged.”
Divinity Original Sin 2 allows you to approach obstacles in so many different ways. Do you want to kill everyone your party runs into? Do you want to sneak out of each situation and be a hero to all? Do you want to have a skeleton named McRibs? I do and the name makes me laugh every time I see it. I cannot get enough of this game. I am currently playing through the campaign with 3 different groups as well as a solo game. Each of these groups have discovered unique ways to escape Fort Joy. This game just keeps surprising me each time I play it. I cannot wait to see how each of the adventures will end.
As with any great RPG, there has to be food to boost your character’s stats. Divinity Original Sin 2 includes a variety of drinks and meals to work with. It is that time of the year where the temperature drops and I want to warm my belly with many different drinks. As I write this, it was in the 40s last week and today it is 75°F. Houston’s weather has been really weird this month which probably explains why I got sick earlier this week. This week, we are serving up a delicious and simple drink – Honeyed Milk. With a few spices, milk, and honey, you will have a delicious new way to enjoy a glass of warm milk. Time to get cooking for your next adventure!
2 cups whole milk
½ vanilla bean, split open
1 cinnamon stick
1 star anise
⅓ tsp ground nutmeg
2 tbsp honey
Combine the milk, vanilla bean, cinnamon stick, cardamom, star anise, and nutmeg in a saucepan over medium high heat. Heat until warmed. Add the honey and heat until dissolved. Serve in a glass. Can garnish with whipped cream and ground cinnamon.
