    You wake up out of a dream too scared to walk in front of your family because you don't want them to question all the weapons and gear you're carrying.

    when you see blue fox gloves and feel a faint urge to pick them for alchemy.
    when you hear someone coughing and instantly think of the sounds NPC's make when you use the blade of woe.
    when you can't stop humming Stagger and Sway, the bard song.
    sometimes I'll take subjects to far and ask for an arm, leg and maybe an eye, please be patent with me.

    Tenesi Faryon of Telvanni - Dunmer Sorceress who deliberately sought sacrifice into Cold Harbor to rescue her beloved.
    Hisa Ni Caemaire - Altmer Sorceress, member of the Order Draconis and Adept of the House of Dibella.
    Broken Branch Toothmaul - goblin (for my goblin characters, I use either orsimer or bosmer templates) Templar, member of the Order Draconis and persistently unskilled pickpocket
    Mol gro Durga - Orsimer Socerer/Battlemage who died the first time when the Nibenay Valley chapterhouse of the Order Draconis was destroyed, then went back to Cold Harbor to rescue his second/partner who was still captive. He overestimated his resistance to the hopelessness of Oblivion, about to give up, and looked up to see the golden glow of atherius surrounding a beautiful young woman who extended her hand to him and said "I can help you". He carried Fianna Kingsley out of Cold Harbor on his shoulder. He carried Alvard Stower under one arm. He also irritated the Prophet who had intended the portal for only Mol and Lyris.

    Order Draconis - well c'mon there has to be some explanation for all those dragon tattoos.

    This game helped me discover Yerba Mate (which I am very grateful for!).

    I was never exposed to it before playing ESO and one day I found it at the grocery store to my surprise, tried it, and now I'm hooked!

    Doesn't give me the jitters on days when I have high anxiety and gives me a real mood lift. I love when video games expose you to real world goodies like this!

    When, while in a cafe with your real life friends, you call someone a "fotm cancerous pug", and they look at you funny.

    When you go to a grocery store and think about selling your useless junk to the grocer instead for easy gold.

    Speaking of currency, when you refer to "pounds" as "gold" in your macroeconomics essay.

    When you wish you paid as much attention to the fluctuations of real life markets as you do to the rise and fall of the columbines and alloys' prices.

    When you wake up and think about those tedious daily quests that you have to do irl too.

    When you have more anger and resentement towards a velidreth/viper nightblade who ganked you than towards the b**** who went to the prom with your ex.

    Um, you mean heavy traffic ISN'T lag? Well, that explains why the new video card I soldered into my car didn't help any. Damn, you could have told me before. Oh well, at least I didn't install the terabit network card yet. :(
