This The Witcher 3 player has created the most wonderful memorial for their pet who passed away - they built a Place of Power with their name inscribed in Elvish.
Apologies in advance for any spelling mistakes in this article. I am trying to type through my tears. We know that video games, like books or movies or other forms of art, are a touching way to pay tribute to the people who have changed our lives. Last summer, The Lord Of The Rings Online players gathered to say goodbye to actor Sir Ian Holm with a walk to Rivendell, celebrations in Bag End, and vigils at the Celondim docks. And, after the death of the German Shepherd who played Dogmeat in Fallout 4, Bethesda donated $10,000 to the Montgomery County Humane Society in Maryland to honour her contributions to the characterisation of the canine companion.
Of course, these are sad subjects to talk about. So, here's our silly travel guide to Skellige, one of the colder regions of The Continent with an even frostier welcome from its inhabitants.
Reddit user Lieuw78 played The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt with their dog Indi by their side. I find that pets of all sorts always wonder what you're up to, and if there's the bonus of a quiet and comfortable space where you are, they'll set up shop. One of my cats used to sit next to me while I played Mass Effect and the other will leap onto my lap when I play Assassin's Creed Valhalla because she knows I'll be sitting stationary for some time.
Sadly, Indi passed away recently, and to help process the loss, Lieuw78 had an idea. They took one of the boulders found on a river trail that the two of them used to walk together. A drill was used to create lots of holes in the stone which then became one large smooth hole with the use of a grinder. Then, they wrote their dog's name in Elvish on the stone and placed it in their garden. The result is a personalised replica of a Place of Power from The Witcher 3, honouring Indy's character and companionship throughout their life.
"Powerful tribute. He is now at Avalon keeping company with Yen and Geralt, bringing them some apples for them to enjoy," said fontegris on Reddit. "Goddamn that's beautiful man. Sorry for your loss. The shrine somehow connects to a place of power and vulnerability, I don't really know how to explain it," said daddypine. "I get what you mean," replied Lieuw78. "It is a connection with my Indi, and in order to keep that connection I am willing to embrace any emotions it brings."
