One Shots: The 3:15 giant flea is on time
When it comes to public transportation, I can think of no better way to get from point A to point B than by climbing up seven stories and latching myself onto the back of a giant flea who may or may not have my best intentions at heart. Oh wait. I can totally think of a zillion better ways.
But that’s just how it is in Elder Scrolls Online’s Morrowind. Zulika Mi-Nam revisited his old stomping grounds and had this to share: “I spent a lot of time in it about 15 years ago, so the whole place is full of memories.

“I’ve always joked that my main and his Vulcan XO are secretly in love with one another,” Mysecretid said, “but he’s so honorable and duty-conscious, and she’s so Vulcan, that they’re as useless at expressing this to one another as pre-teens at a school dance.

“Romancing the Rogue,” Utakata said, “A Goblin’s love affair is never made of flesh.”
Reminds me of when I was a youngster and used to break into Scrooge McDuck’s vault to frolic with my dates.
“I’m back with a vengeance. Back to Blade and Soul, that is,” wrote Rafael. “You shall not pass!”
Hey, if you want to roleplay a crossing guard in a fantasy setting, who am I to cast judgment? You wear that reflective vest and hold up that stop sign with all of the power in your inventory!
Miol takes us the long way home through Guild Wars 2: “I’m already missing the cold embrace of winter. Time for a chilly stroll through Lornar’s Pass.”
Frostbite is fun! Who needs toes when you’ve got a camera and a death wish, am I right?
Death. Decay. Graveyards. Tombs. Skulls.
No, I’m not just freestyling rap for my latest goth record, but instead I wanted to give you your next screenshot assignment. Let’s see some pics of the more morbid and macabre sides of MMOs!
