Massively OP's guide to Valentine's Day around the MMORPG verse
Ready for sappy questlines, particle effects that look like hearts, and lots -- and I do mean lots -- of pink? Valentine's day has arrived in the real world and many of the pretend worlds inside MMORPGs (for some reason). And who are we to fuss when the events are all about candy and cheap romance? Nobody, that's who. Read on for our guide to Valentine's Day around the MMORPG verse!

CM Celestrata also points out that there's a scandalous storyline running: "Yateo appears to have CHEATED (how rude) on Greeniette, and is only after her heritage to the Greenman throne. In a calm and rational response, Greeniette is assembling an army of adventurers to go kill Yateo. That's how everyone deals with this, yeah?"
Pokemon Go's V-day event involves pink Pokemon and candy. Lots of candy.
Riders of Icarus has a V-day promo promising a date with a GM. What could go wrong!
