One Shots: The Elvish temptation
I’m sorry to have to begin this week’s column with a public service announcement, but this has been a long time coming. Friends, beware of the Elves. Elves will only lure you into danger, tempt you down roads best left alone, and make a mockery of life insurance policies. Reject the Elf in all of its forms.
“Sadly I’ve been resucked into World of Warcraft because elves (only because Justin has such a hate on for them),” wrote Winter.
DARN IT, Winter. Did you not hear a word I just said? No matter. The Massively OP Intervention Unit (MOPIU) is on its way to your home as we speak. Put down the fake pointed ears and listen to them, won’t you?
“I’m out of town for a couple of days this week, and didn’t want to drag my laptop about, so I’ve just brought along my ASUS ZenPad,” said Rees Racer. “I’d been meaning to have a look at AdventureQuest 3D, so this seemed a good time, considering the hardware limitations. I created a mage, and have made my way through the obligatory tutorial skeletons to the fist camp outside a castle. We’ll see!”
Let us know, man!
Vunak is photojournaling his Black Desert adventures: “I’ve been playing a lot of BDO lately. I was able to get over my distaste for the enchanting system and figured out a pretty secure way to enchant my boss armor and things up to TRI. So here is Mica and me adventuring into Kamasylvia for the first time. Going through Grana and around Grana.”
“Here I am in the new Void Elf starting area in WoW!” said Borghive.
…sheesh. C’mon man! Did you not hear anything I said in the intro there? Is all of my finely crafted prose spinning off into the nether without a single soul to hear the wise words of warning contained within? Do you want to live out your existence enslaved to the Elvish ideology — or do you want to live free?
I misread Zulika Mi-Nam’s entry and thought that this was a FFXIV shot. Apparently, it is not, but now I’ve gone too far with the prep to back out. Shh. Don’t tell my editor. She never reads this far down in posts anyway.
“I have only been playing FFXII this week. So here is a pic of a shop full of moogles. If you do not like moogles you are dead inside.”
Speaking of Moogles, is there an NPC race in your MMO that exists to be silly or to be comic relief? Show us a picture of them this week for the screenshot challenge and let us know your feelings on their presence!
