[​IMG] What does Ereshkigal have to be angry about in Aion? Lots of things, really. There’s nothing good on TV, there were no more muffins in the kitchen, a bunch of player characters are going to wreck his stuff because he wants to accumulate power, and she can’t find her favorite hairpin. The third one is something […] Continue reading...
